Quote Of The Week

"But the fact being once established, that the press is impotent when it abandons itself to falsehood, I leave to others to restore it to its strength, by recalling it within the pale of truth. Within that, it is a noble institution, equally the friend of science and of civil liberty." - Thomas Jefferson

Parkland Dad Lashes Out At Gun Grabbing Democrats :: 10/20/2018

It’s easy to forget that not everyone with close ties to Parkland went full-on anti-gunner. After all, look at what the media has put forward for us to look at left and right since the massacre took place. We’ve seen David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez, Delaney Tarr, and numerous parents who all sit there and tell us how evil guns are. It’s easy to forget that they’re not the totality of Parkland.

The Gun Control Debate: A Brief History :: 10/19/2018

For the nearly two hundred years after its approval as an amendment to the United States Constitution, few sentences in the Bill of Rights caused less controversy.

If there’s one depressing thing I do here at Bearing Arms, it’s writing about financial institutions which have unilaterally decided to stop doing business with lawful firearm companies because they don’t like the business they’re in. Like many, I’ve been trying to find a reason why this is happening. I can’t believe the entire financial industry is full of anti-gunners and nothing else.

Russia: At least 21 killed in school shooting massacre in Crimea, wounds more than 65, 10 in critical, 5 in coma described as "extremely grave" :: 10/19/2018

Unless you watch the news closely you likely missed the news that a day ago there was a very deadly mass public school shooting in Crimea. It will probably be another day or so until there is a good idea how many people were killed by eighteen-year-old Vladislav Roslyakov. This case will quickly be forgotten in the news coverage.

California Self-Defense: CA Teen Shoots, Kills Dad Who Was Choking Mom :: 10/16/2018

As adults, we often think of teens as not being able to make good decisions. In truth, plenty of teenagers give us ample reason to think that. My own son, who is generally a pretty smart and upstanding kid, gives me plenty of reason to think such a thing. I can only imagine what kind of other reasons teens provide their parents as to their inability to make good choices.
