John Ransom - Fri Jun 14

Matt Towery - Fri Apr 12

As a columnist, I have my own opinions on issues, and from the get-go I opposed expanded background checks for gun purchases because I viewed it as a slippery slope that could lead to more and more lists of honest Americans and more and more control by the government that would own those lists. ... more

If you want to carry a gun in Alabama, you’re probably kin to a slave-holding, murdering, adulterous, baby-raping, incestuous, snaggle-toothed, backward-a**ed, inbreed, imported criminal-minded grandma or grandpa. At least that’s the word from education expert, the Dishonorable Representative Joe Mitchell (D) Dumb A**. ... more

Bob Costas, just a few days after giving a cultural soliloquy during a halftime break regarding the murder/suicide of Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, and the need to eradicate our society from guns, has managed to continue his elitist climb, claiming that the "audience" is to blame for the follow-up brouhaha about his comments. Like a good elitist, Costas is blaming his audience. ... more

Yet if you follow what's been going on with the United Nations this year, you know that the USA came perilously close to having other countries dictate our gun laws. And the fight isn't over yet. ... more

Mike Adams - Mon May 28

I never travel without a loaded gun. I usually carry a Smith and Wesson Model 640 in a bucket in the trunk of my car. Sometimes I carry a Glock Model 23 instead. I was really happy I was carrying the former when I arrived at my hotel room in Amarillo last week shortly after midnight.

"Botched." That is the word the mainstream media too often associates with the federal gunwalking scandal known as Operation Fast and Furious, but in her new book, investigative reporter Katie Pavlich fearlessly chronicles exactly why the only thing "botched" about the ill-fated operation was the Obama administration's shoddy attempt to cover their tracks. ... more
