  • Sacha Baron Cohen Meets His Match in California Gun Shop Owner

    When I heard that Sacha Baron Cohen was coming out with a new prank-interview show, I wondered the same thing you probably did: Won't his targets recognize him as Borat? It's only been 12 years since Cohen's priapic Kazakhstani character became an international celebrity. Nothing he's done since then has been nearly as successful*, so now he's back to his old tricks. But how can he pull off the same act, now that everybody knows who he is? Won't they take one look at him and say, "Hey, you're Borat"?The answer, as viewers of Who Is America? learned this...

    I have been staying in Middleton, Wisconsin for a couple of months. After an injury a couple of years ago, and a serious case of pneumonia, I have changed exercise from running to brisk walking.  Wearing t-shirt and shorts limits the options for concealed carry. Most of my walking in the area started about 0500, but on Monday, July 9th, I had stayed up late, coming back from a play at American Player's Theater in Spring Green, Wisconsin. I slept in. I didn't get out to exercise until after 0800. It was a mistake. Instead of a few cars...
  • Prediction: More Guns, Less Suicide During Trump Administration

    There have been a number of recent opinion articles that attempted to create a linkage between firearms in society and the rate of suicides in society. The opinion articles contain explicit calls for more regulation of firearms in society, even though most of the policy prescriptions would have no effect on suicides. Banning or restriction semi-automatic firearms? Suicides only need a single shot.Banning or restricting magazine capacity? Suicides only need one shot. Magazines are superfluous to suicide.Reducing the age of sale for semi-automatic rifles? The same lack of logic applies. The general argument that more guns result in more...

    Italians are questioning the reasonableness and effectiveness of their complex and strict gun control laws. From thelocal.com: While 26 percent of people questioned in 2015 said they supported looser laws on owning a gun for self-defence, the latest research carried out by social studies institute Censis and private security sector organization Federsicurezza found that 39 percent were in favour. The percentage was highest among people with a low level of education and the elderly, rising to 51 percent among respondents who hadn't completed high school and 41 percent for the over-65s. The study also found that the number of...

    Meet Danyela D’Angelo a 93 pound 15-year-old girl who’s become a master shooter of all firearms. Seriously, she's shot everything from the massive 500 Smith & Wesson Magnum revolver to all sorts of submachine guns. You can catch her firing up the .50 cal Desert Eagle like a boss. Ingram Mac-10 you say, yes, she shoots one suppressed. The AR, yeh looks like she was toting the old CAR-15 (short barrel with thick hand guard) is what I call it. She also competes shooting with AR’s and race guns. You don't believe us take a look at this 15 yr...

    It’s not just the wrongly decided Roe V. Wade decision that liberals fear is in jeopardy with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. They also fear their crusade against “semi-automatic” weapons may be exposed as the semantic, visual, and judicial fraud that it is: "If you care about common sense gun violence protection, Judge Kavanaugh is your worst nightmare. If you want background checks, a ban on assault weapons, or any of the other common sense measures that we have in Connecticut, or California or New York, Judge Kavanaugh will strike them down." said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, who used to...

    Erich Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America (GOA), issued the following statement on Pres. Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court: "Kavanaugh will be a huge improvement over the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on many constitutional issues, including the Second Amendment. "Initial reports suggest that Judge Kavanaugh deeply respects the Second Amendment, even though he was not the strongest of the finalists. "Nevertheless, Judge Kavanaugh filed a pro-gun dissent in Heller II, arguing that Washington, DC's ban on semi-automatic firearms was arbitrary and unlawful. "In fact, his dissent was so well argued that GOA's...

    'Why do teachers have to die protecting their students? Why can't we live protecting our students?' In the weeks and months since the school shootings in Parkland, Florida, and Santa Fe, Texas, the debate over whether teachers should be able to carry firearms in schools has received a great deal of attention. A number of states have allowed teachers to carry firearms in schools for years and provide some insight into how such programs work in practice and what motivates teachers who want to be armed. In Colorado, local school districts have the authority to but are not required to...

    I’ve posted this meme before – it’s one of my favorites. (I would give credit to the person who created it, but I don’t know who that is.) This article from Fox News descrbes a real life example of the meme in action. You can even see it in the security video at the link (which can’t be embedded here.)And please note that the trigger was never pulled. Just showing the gun was enough to scare the bad guy away.In the video, the guy is clearly pissed off that the woman had a gun.This is real female empowerment in action,...

    Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) said the development of smart guns should be part of the gun-control conversation, arguing that a gun owner should not be able to fire a gun without some sort of verification like a thumbprint that's needed to unlock a smartphone. Deutch also said that there are efforts underway to require gun manufacturers to incorporate smart technology in firearms but that the NRA is standing in the way. "Yes, there are absolutely efforts. The technology has advanced where we’ve seen this kind of technology using guns," Deutch said during a conference call briefing with the Jewish Democratic...

    FASTER Colorado's active shooter training for teachers. Last week I went through the training many of the teachers who are authorized to carry a gun in Colorado schools go through. In the wake of the devastating school shootings in Parkland, Fla., and Santa Fe, Tex., many different solutions have been proposed for how to stop or at least curb the violence inflicted by active shooters. Among the most prominent solutions—thanks in large part to President Trump's advocacy—is arming teachers. Most, however, don't understand how arming teachers works in person or that a number of states already allow certain teachers to...

    A Kentucky woman is facing harsh criticism on social media after photographs circulated on Twitter showing her posing with a giraffe she killed on a South African safari last year. A tweet last month from @africlandpost showed photobig-game hunter Tess Thompson Talley exulting with the dead giraffe. “White american savage who is partly a neanderthal comes to Africa and shoot down a very rare black giraffe courtesy of South Africa stupidity,” the tweet said. It named Talley and added: “Please share.” Some celebrities joined the criticism, with comedian Ricky Gervais tweeting: “What’s 16 feet tall and has a c**t on...

    You want to take things from people? You want to take away their freedom? First you must disarm them. Then you may have your way with them One of the billions of pictured thought-captions floating around the web, asks this question: “Why is it that liberals demand gun control after every shooting - but never border control after every rape and murder by illegals?!” Those sorts of ‘memes’, as they’re called, perhaps rile people up. But, in the big picture, in the sea of words out there, that no one seems to slow down and sort through, it is a...

A hashtag and a growing wave (not a blue one) of videos on YouTube and Facebook signal that the Democrats finally have gotten too crazy for at least some of their formerly faithful supporters. Celina Farber of the Epoch Times catalogues a growing wave of revolt against Democrats’ embrace of socialism and no borders and general insanity under the rubric of #Walkaway: Once upon a time, I was a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a...

    GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. -- The FBI is now investigating after a woman shot a New Zealand man outside her Goochland County home Friday afternoon. Troy Skinner, 25, flew to Virginia to meet the woman's teenage daughter after the two chatted online using Discord, a service popular among gamers, the Goochland County Sheriff said. The 14-year-old girl's mother shot Skinner when he attempted to break into the family's home in the Holland Hills community, the sheriff said. "He was not invited here, he was not expected here, he had been told in the past that the daughter no longer wished to...
