Who is actually racist?

Anyone who tries to tout that the NRA doesn’t like the idea of blacks carrying guns is absolutely ignorant. For one, the NRA News has a commentator by the name of Colion Noir. He’s black. And he’s had a YouTube channel since before he joined up with the NRA as a commentator. And in one […]

Concealed carry without a permit

Also known as “constitutional carry”, a number of States do not have a permit procedure to carry a firearm concealed. More States are now considering such allowances. The Washington Post recently reported on it, and said this: The American public has recently been tilting toward gun rights; a Pew poll last month showed guns rights […]

Firearms to the left is like abortion and gay marriage to the right

It is at times interesting noting parallels of liberals discussing abortion and marriage laws, and conservatives discussing gun laws. The recent example here is Michaelangelo Signorile, Editor-at-large for Huffington Post’s Gay Voices section, and his article “Has the Anti-Gay Right Found Its Gay ‘Partial-Birth Abortion’?” In the article, Signorile talks about how the pro-life right […]

Gun owners for gun control

It seems to be a growing, if not now the majority pattern to articles discussing gun control: “I support gun control and I’m a gun owner”. Oh wait, except the term they’re trying to front now is “gun safety”… What’s worse is when people who are retired military and a gun owner also speaking out […]

Aurora and concealed carry

With the upcoming trial of James Holmes looming around the corner, the Second Amendment is once again being discussed. And it’s the Aurora theatre shooting that tends to divide people with regard to concealed carry. In short, those against expanding firearms rights in the US tend to say that the Aurora shooting would’ve been a […]

Alien Gear holsters

When I started carrying concealed, I originally carried a Taurus PT971C in a Crossbreed Holsters holster. Crossbreed, like most other manufacturers, make hybrid holsters that are little more than a scabbard bolted onto a piece of leather with clips to hold it to your belt. Not exactly the greatest thing in the world. When I […]

The argument from history doesn’t jive with history

It seems when arguing about our legal system, two things will hold true: a person arguing against capital punishment will bring up the cost associated with it, and a person arguing against the private ownership of firearms will bring up the historical interpretation of the Second Amendment. The former I’ve already tackled, twice, and the […]

Stopped by police while carrying, revisited

Prior to this past evening, I had not been pulled over since 2010 when I got nailed for speeding. At that time I did not even own a firearm. This past evening, I was pulled over because one of our headlights was out. We were able to confirm such at a nearby gas station, where […]

Gun confiscation

Cracked.com recently ran a series called “If Every Lie on the Internet Was True“, in which this picture was included: The lie here isn’t that government agents will actively confiscate guns, it’s that gun rights supporters say that government agents will actively confiscate guns. Here’s the thing, outside Alex Jones and a few other conspiratorial […]

Passive response to concerns

When someone breaks into your home, you typically take measures to ensure that future break-ins are prevented. In my case, there were two homicides within 6 months of each other within a half mile of where I live several years ago, along with the fact there are also nearly a dozen registered sex offenders also […]
