This weekend, residents of Louisiana, the ‘Sportsman’s Paradise’, enjoyed a sales tax holiday on purchases of firearms, ammunition, and hunting-related equipment, like camouflage clothing and ATVs. And for the first time, I’ve joined the ranks of gun owners.
Old Man Defends Property and Lives?! How Awful, sneers the Associated Press
I read about the following over at the always astute VodkaPundit. Not only does it serve to illustrate media stealth bias, but it also shines light on attitudes too prevalent in our society today… personal responsibility? That’s hogwash! Shopkeeper ‘didn’t want to shoot’ robbers** 2 suspects dead, 2 injured after 72-year-old opens fire in New York City NEW YORK – The sidewalk outside the Harlem | Read More »
National Rifle Association Totally Capitulates on Sotomayor
It took me blogging at RedState pointing out that the NRA was missing in action on Sotomayor for the NRA to do anything about her nomination. And when the NRA engaged, it did so by sending out a letter publicly telling Sotomayor what she needed to say so the NRA would not score her vote. Apparently, it worked. The NRA knows it cannot support Sotomayor’s | Read More »

The Obama administration’s mistakes on the assault weapon ban.
Note plural. Mistake #1: picking an Attorney General and administration spokesman who doesn’t even know current firearms law. Eric Holder was on today announcing that the Obama administration was going to bring back the “assault weapons” ban. As Purple Avenger of Ace of Spades notes, this is the same guy who called for making armor piercing bullets (“cop-killers”) illegal…
