Question of the Day: Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?

In the video above, gun guru James Yeager makes a distinction between people in the “gun community” vs. people in the “gun culture.” People who don’t agree with Yeager’s take-no-prisoners approach to gun rights are “politically correct butt-kissing boot lickers who want to appease their liberal masters.” People who are down with Yeager’s stance and style are “an unapologetic group of people that are simply doing what our creator gave us the right to do.” While I consider myself a gun rights absolutist, there are plenty of folks who don’t share my opinion on some things (e.g. they don’t see a problem…

Gun Review: Armalite AR-24

By ST “Nice gun ya got there,” asked the grey haired counter jockey. “Reminds me of a CZ75.” “Oh, but it’s not…..” was my response, for reasons soon to be clear. “Nice.

More Burglars Shot, Fewer Burglaries…Who Knew?

Who could possibly have predicted that when more burglars are shot in the act, burglary rates go down? Somehow, though, that natural response seems to confound media sophisticates. Take, for example, this report of a recent routine defensive gun use story from richmondconfidential.org: “Terrell Ruben, 42, became the third person shot and killed in an attempted burglary in Richmond this year. A Richmond homeowner shot Ruben in the chest after he discovered Ruben and another man attempting to steal property from his backyard last Saturday.” . . . Another home invader pushing up daisies.
