Since the NRA released its statement on bump stocks and national reciprocity yesterday I’ve been hearing a lot of grumbling from gun owners and second amendment supporters. They’re not happy. “In the aftermath of the evil and senseless attack in Las Vegas, the American people are looking for answers as to how future tragedies can […]
Every debate has a moment that everyone remembers long after the debate and campaign has ended. In 2012 it was Rick Perry’s forgetfulness, last night in New Hampshire it Marco Rubio’s ‘Obama knows what he’s doing’ exchange with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie: The irony? Macro Rubio was right on the substance. Barack Obama set […]
Wow, I just realized it’s been almost a year since I’ve posted anything here. Although I’m loath to wade back into political blogging I thought I’d offer my thoughts on Thursday night’s GOP primary debate. The one thing that was clear during Thursday night’s debate was that Donald Trump was way out of his element. […]
Roughly a year after the Supreme Court’s decision in Dist. of Columbia v. Heller ended Washington D.C.’s defacto gun ban in 2008, Tom Palmer, George Lyon, Ed Raymond & Amy McVey filed a lawsuit along with the Second Amendment Foundation in U.S. District Court claiming the District’s total ban on carrying firearms — open or […]

From the Wall Street Journal: The Justice Department indicted five Chinese military officers, alleging they hacked U.S. companies’ computers to steal trade secrets, a major escalation in the fight between the two superpowers over economic espionage. The indictment, unsealed Monday, marks the first time the U.S. government has publicly accused employees of a foreign power […]
I’ve seen politicians propose all sorts of well-intentioned but ill-conceived legislation. Florida’s CS/HB 89 “Threatened Use of Force” bill is a prime example: The Florida legislature is considering expanding the state’s “stand your ground” law to encompass “threatened use of force.” Specifically, the bill is intended to shield those who brandish a gun or fire a […]
I haven’t been paying close attention to politics recently so I was a little surprised when an old post about Florida Congressman Alan Grayson started receiving a lot views recently. It got me wondering what he’d done now… What he’s done is completely jumped the credibility shark. Rep. Grayson has always been a bombastic idiot […]
One things for sure, today’s Democrats are not your fathers or grandfathers Democrats… I can’t imaging any of them arguing for tax cuts the way John F. Kennedy does during this interview with David Brinkley and Chet Huntley 50 years: Sadly I think we’re past the point were the traditional method of reducing or adjusting […]
Remember when Democrats mercilessly mocked Sarah Palin’s comments about ‘Death Panels’? Turns out she was right, at least according to Howard Dean and the more than 20 Democrats who have signed on to bills repealing the powers of the Independent Payment Advisory Board to effectively ration health care for seniors. While the IPAB isn’t a […]
I’ve been enjoying something of an extended hiatus from blogging. It’s not that I’ve lost interest it’s just that thanks to the policy decisions made by the nit wits in Hartford and Washington D.C. I’m working longer hours for less money and that leaves me less time to write. Anyway, since I can’t leave these […]
I’m sure you’ve seen news reports over the last few days saying the license of the gun shop were Sandy Hook gunman Adam Lanza’s mother Nancy bought two of the guns found at Sandy Hook Elementary School after the massacre. While it’s true that store’s Federal Firearms License (FFL) has been revoked most of the […]
In case you missed it here’s Sarah Palin’s speech at CPAC… complete with an impromptu introduction by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX): Ted Cruz is right… she drives the mainstream media “Bat-crap crazy”.
Senator Rand Paul delivered a rousing speech at yesterday, here the video in case you missed it: More videos from CPAC 2013 can seen here.
From the Wall Street Journal: President Obama’s second term could really be something. In the latest disdain for the Constitution’s checks and balances, the National Labor Relations Board has declared that it doesn’t like the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Friday ruling that three board members were illegally appointed so it plans to ignore it. […]
