Brady Campaign Screws the Pooch in WI Badger Guns Case :: 04/15/2015

And so it has. Except where it hasn’t. Specifically, Badger Guns . . .

Man Attacked by bat wielding attacker In Walmart Won't Open Carry Again :: 04/16/2015

I’m going to probably shock those who have bought into certain stereotypes of gun owners, but I’m a firm believer in the idea that the best defensive gun uses are those where the law-abiding citizens isn’t forced to pull the trigger of his weapon.
