Question of the Day: What Should Society Do to Stop School Shooters?

Fri, 02/16/2018 - 12:00

Antis gotta anti. So when a school shooter unleashes homicidal fury, the forces of civilian disarmament waste no time waving the bloody shirt for gun control. Laws that would have done nothing — zip, zero, nada, niente, rien — to stop the slaughter. To be charitable, their heart is in the right place. They don’t […]

Rolling Stone: Repeal the Second Amendment! Meanwhile “Sensible Gun Control”

Fri, 02/16/2018 - 11:00

Rolling Stone is as anti-gun as they come. But how a Jewish writer could pen this polemic is beyond me (a Jewish writer) . . . I’ve made it clear in the past that I want extreme measures in response to gun violence – such as repealing the Second Amendment to the Constitution – and I strongly […]

Here’s Why Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Never Reported Nikolas Cruz to the Police

Fri, 02/16/2018 - 10:13

Nikolas Cruz was a known threat. Known by the administrators of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. It’s a clear case where a known dangerous student was not reported to the police. Why?

Then I opened the Small Game Carbine . . . The […]

Fri, 02/16/2018 - 08:00

“It is possible that in a country with just as many guns as ours – but with better systems of education and mental health; or a less cutthroat economic system and more generous welfare state; or a less troubled racial history and stronger sense of social solidarity; or a less toxic ideal of masculinity and more women […]

Gear Review: KCarry Shoulder Holster

Thu, 02/15/2018 - 17:00

The KCarry holster bills itself as the “most comfortable holster you’ll ever wear.” Maybe. But the product is fundamentally unsafe . . . The simple elastic that covers the gun, including the trigger, does little to keep the trigger from being pulled while it’s still in the holster. I tried this with several pistols, including a […]

Question of the Day: What Do You Tell Your Kids to Do If There’s a School Shooter?

Thu, 02/15/2018 - 12:00

When I drop my daughter off at public school, I give her this advice: run or ambush. Shelter-in-place? FTS. That makes it easy to slaughter tightly gathered innocents. If you have kids in public school, what do you tell them to do should a spree killer or killers start annihilating their classmates, teachers and/or administrators?

Gun Review: B&T GHM9 9mm Pistol

Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:00

According to B&T’s website, “We are producing weapons, accessories and suppressors for police, military, special units, and some qualified private shooters.” Here in the U.S., most of B&T’s Swiss-made guns hover around the $2,000 mark. So whatever qualifications B&T had in mind, add the word “financially.” That’s a lot of money for a non-competition oriented pistol. […]
