Someone tell the NRA that nothing is worse than a whiny winner. They get everything — EVERYTHING — they want and still they maintain a persecution complex. Victory in November would mean a “pro-Second Amendment” Congress, said [NRA leader Chris] Cox — as if the current arrangement of Congress can or would do anything anti-gun.

We have a new winner for stupidest thing said by a GOP candidate for president: The NRA, [Gingrich] told the group’s annual convention, has been much too timid and moderate in its defense of gun rights. If elected president, he said, he will “submit to the United Nations a treaty that extends the right to […]Read more "Newt going out w/ a bang"

Most people, knowing what’s known about the shooting of Trayvon Martin, would like to see George Zimmerman charged with something – me included. But it would be a miscarriage of justice if Zimmerman was charged with a hate crime, as some experts speculate. Racism, if Zimmerman is guilty of it, is not a crime. Pursuing an […]Read more "Racism doesn’t kill people — vigilantes with guns often do"

FBI personal background checks, which are required before an individual can buy guns, hit an all-time high of 129,166 on Black Friday. That figure shattered the previous record of 97,848, set on Black Friday of 2008, by 32 percent. In Georgia, FBI personal background checks recorded during the month of November are at a three-year […]Read more "Have an NRA Christmas"

The question before a three-judge panel for the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta Thursday is whether Georgia’s prohibition on firearms in places of worship conflicts with the promise of religious freedom in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. GeorgiaCarry.org, which brought the initial lawsuit, believes religious institutions, not Georgia law, should […]Read more "In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Gun"
Apparently the Pima County, AZ GOP considers tact a violation of the Second Amendment/Commandment, which, as you know, is the most sacred of God’s 10 edicts. Eight months after a mad gunman killed six and injured 13, including Pima County’s congressional representative, Gabrielle Giffords, the party figured it was a good idea to hold a […]Read more "‘Assholishness’ infects Arizona GOP"
There’s no stopping the National Rifle Association, the most powerful lobbying bloc in the nation. No one has exploited the cult of conservative victimhood quite like the NRA, which starts every fundraising letter with “the Second Amendment is under assault …” Meanwhile, their plan to transform America into a 21st Century version of the Wild […]Read more "Gun nuts drunk with power"
Rick Perry, with his well-coiffed early 90’s ‘do and shiny expensive suits, presents like a televangelist. He appears to be my least favorite kind of redneck — one with money, power and, apparently, a small penis (when jogging he carries a laser-sighted pistol with hollow point bullets). In short, Perry is the reason most of […]Read more "The neo-Confederate candidate"
The NRA should be satisfied. Democrats abandoned sensible gun control three elections ago, standing on the sidelines as the firearms lobby advanced legislation allowing paranoid rednecks the right to carry in churches and bars. But the gun nuts are never satisfied. The Obama administration has proposed that gun dealers in four states on the U.S.-Mexico […]Read more "The most irrational lobby in America"
Alleged outdoorswoman Sarah Palin had them discharging in the aisles Saturday night with her speech to a convention of big game hunters. “Imagine, though—imagine making life even more miserable for the liberals who want that gun control,” she finally says. “Here’s how I figure it. Remember that weird guy in Wisconsin was so angry, so […]Read more "White Hunter No Brain"
*I understand his passion, but Pima County (Az.) Sheriff Clarence Dupnik’s indictment of fringe fanatics like Palin, Limbaugh and Beck in the Arizona shooting massacre was ill-timed. Law enforcement’s duty in such a crisis is to stick with the facts, and there’s no evidence to support Dupnik’s assertion. The suspect is clearly driven by demons […]Read more "Random thoughts on the Arizona massacre"
I haven’t vetted this, and I’m reluctant to comment until all the facts are in. Still … UPDATE: Jesse Kelly was Giffords’ opponent in the Nov. election. Can we at least agree this kind of posturing is, at best, absurd? I salute his service, but I don’t recall Ike driving around with a pistol in his […]Read more "Rhetoric is not irrelevant"
