Quote Of The Week

"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Winston Churchill

Gun control is foolish, but 'Second Amendment sanctuaries' are an affront to rule of law :: 01/19/2020

I’m pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment, and completely opposed to Virginia Democrats’ gun control agenda. But the "Second Amendment sanctuaries" cropping up around rural Virginia in response to pending anti-gun legislation in the state Senate are an affront to the rule of law and threaten the viability of our entire electoral system.

Judge Slaps Broward County Down Over Gun Control Ordinances :: 01/16/2020

The people of Broward County, Florida have made some questionable choices through the years. Not only have they not told David Hogg to sit down and shut up, but they also elected Scott Israel as sheriff. Were that the extent of their sins, that would be enough, but I’m afraid it’s not.

The Problems With Small Self-Defense Guns :: 01/18/2020

I get asked a lot what I think the best gun is for concealed carry. Many times, this question comes while in class, but in casual online conversations the question seems to becoming more popular. The answer is simple: The gun that is the most popular. Regardless of the criterion for selecting the ideal gun for concealed carry, popularity seems to trump practicality. Of course, popularity can be subjective, but for me it is what consumers are purchasing. More and more consumers are purchasing subcompact guns ideally suited for concealed carry. The only downside to these consumer selections is the inherit difficulty in shooting them well as a result of their smaller sizes.
