The Right to Bear Arms is a Natural Right (Guest Post)

By 44 Comments 1,016 views

The 2nd Amendment has taken heavy criticism almost from its inception. It is no hyperbole to consider it the most controversial passage in all of United States law. Due to an apparent (though imagined) increase in gun crime in recent years, many are calling for repealing the Amendment and instituting tougher restrictions on firearms acquisition,… Read more »

It’s Time for a National Conversation About Having a National Conversation On Guns

By 13 Comments 1,584 views

Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A mass shooting occurs. When the smoke clears we learn that the attacker generally falls into one of two categories – mentally ill or a follower of The Religion That Shall Not Be Named by Any Leftist. Since discussing the motivations behind these perpetrators and solutions to stop… Read more »

The Radical Left Finally Gets it Right on Corruption, But Still Wrong on Everything Else

By 7 Comments 2,005 views

  Image appears via Liberato.us Faithful readers know that I enjoy The Nation’s e-newsletters. While I don’t have the time to read all of them, it is useful to get an unfiltered look at the views of the Radical Left. One of last week’s newsletters had not one, not two, but three eye catching headlines…. Read more »

Is Black Lives Matter Indirectly a Pro-Second Amendment Movement?

By 9 Comments 1,788 views

We’ve had another shooting, and predictably some jerk is admitting to politicizing the victims to advance his radical agenda. What will get buried in the news cycle is that the #BlackLivesmatter backed down from its threat to disrupt the Twin Cities’ Marathon. As the Pioneer Press’ Joe Soucheray observed, aside form self promotion to their… Read more »

Shouldn’t Allowing our Troops to Carry Guns on Base be Championed by The Left?

By 2 Comments 1,675 views

The Chattanooga shooting that left four marines dead is just the latest in a line of lone wolf attacks  where news outlets such as CNN had “questions of motive”. And as everybody knows, military bases are gun-free zones. While being allowed to possess a firearm does not guarantee one’s safety, declaring any zone gun-free just guarantees… Read more »

From your Facebook passwords to Section 8 housing… why Barack Obama should be impeached for dismantling the very Constitution he swore to preserve, protect and defend.

By 14 Comments 1,652 views

We all know that Barack Obama was a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago. He spent more than a decade lecturing on what is possibly the greatest document ever written by men. Later, when elected to the Senate and then the White House he swore to defend that same Constitution. Despite all of… Read more »

In defense of the slippery slope argument…

By 58 Comments 2,496 views

Liberals constantly decry conservatives’ slippery slope arguments against their progressive legislation as simply red herrings. Their refrain is usually “Don’t be absurd, no one’s trying to do _____ (insert the relevant slippery slope argument here).” They suggest that such an argument is mere hyperbole and conservatives are introducing ideas no one wants. As usual, the… Read more »

Time To Register Books And Put Reasonable Restrictions On The 1st Amendment [Reader Post]

By 4 Comments 865 views

President Obama and his progressive allies have recently told us that even the most draconian of gun laws must be passed because “If we save even one life from gun violence, it’s worth it.” While that’s an amazingly ignorant, infantile, and even downright silly statement, it does neatly sum up a nanny-state philosophy that is… Read more »

Life imitates art… Liberals see the world as they imagine it is, not how it actually is

By 24 Comments 1,599 views

I’ve always been a fan of Van Gogh’s paintings. I similarly like Renoir, and Seurat. Although I like some of Picasso’s early work, most of it I find a bit odd. My favorite artist however is William Adolphe Bouguereau, a 19th century French artist whose works are the polar opposite of the impressionists, literally. From the… Read more »

Finally, a Sensible Gun Control Solution [Reader Post]

By 39 Comments 1,672 views

I’ve intentionally avoided this topic since it seems almost every possible angle has been explored, and everyone has some solution that will leave one side angry and for the most part, the other side unsatisfied. What nobody seems to be looking at is a real solution, that can only be found if we strip away… Read more »
