“Gun control is the idea that it’s better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand.”—T.D. Melrose

The AR-15: Threat or Menace?
A Warning To Gun-Grabbers

by L. Neil Smith
The infamous AR-15 rifle and its several variants, such as the M16, the CAR-15, the XM 177E1, and the M4 Carbine, manufactured by Colt and many others, is probably the worst military rifle the United States has issued since the 1873 “Trapdoor” Springfield got George Armstrong Custer and his men killed at the Little Big Horn. Ballistically, it hasn’t much more real striking power than a .357 Magnum, not a good thing in a battlefield weapon. Our enemies in the last couple of wars have had far better ordnance.

We Have a Responsibility
by Jeff Jordan
Alright, I've been quite rough on a few of my friends as we've been discussing the latest mass murder in a school in Florida. As I always am when they say something stupid. Part of it is not their fault, there is a LOT of outright disinformation out there. Ignorance, however, only gets you so far with me in the age of the internet. Google is your friend, so is asking someone you KNOW is far more knowledgeable on this topic than you are. I've studied and written on the subject of the right to keep and bear arms, self defense, and firearms technology for my whole life. Hardly an expert but I sure as hell know enough to fact-check about any claim within seconds, as quite a few blowhards and hoplophobes have learned to their chagrin over the years. And I have a whole folder full of email addresses of REAL experts to consult on the rare occasions I get stumped.

Erasing History
by Sean Gangol
While I am certainly not a fan of Identity politics, I do agree with the White Nationalist movement on the removal of Confederate monuments, though probably not for the same reasons. It never seems to make sense to me how these same monuments, which have been sitting on public grounds for decades or even centuries are suddenly triggering people in the year 2018.

Zero Aggression Means Zero Legitimate Gun Laws
by Jim Davidson
Recently one of my Twitter mutual follows Zach Ford insisted in a series of Tweets that it was imperative that the social justice warriors, left liberal socialists, and 16-year-old enthusiasts for the coercive imposition of massive government be allowed to impose additional rules on who can have guns, and what sort of accessories guns may have. Zach has the non-aggression principle in his banner, and pretends that he is an anarcho-capitalist. However, what he is, it seems to me, is a person willing to compromise with evil because in his mind it is a little inconvenient to be engaged in conversations with people who oppose the individual right to keep and bear arms. He claims his views are reasonable and that compromise is sensible, or the socialist gun grabbers will be advocating even greater gun bans, which they would presumably implement by demanding that soldiers and police go door to door to seize all privately held weapons.

”This culminated in police officers falsifying documents, hiding criminal activity, lying on official police reports …”
by Vin Suprynowicz
19-year-old Niklolas de Jesus Cruz — who killed 17 former schoolmates at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Feb. 14 — had committed numerous serious crimes over the previous five years, including assault, but had no criminal record (which would have prevented him from buying firearms.)
