Op-Ed: Connecticut's strict gun licensing law linked to steep drop in homicides? Not really

A new study in the American Journal of Public Health claims that the state of Connecticut’s 1995 gun licensing law has reduced firearm homicide rates by 40 percent. But this just released study gives academics a bad name. Not surprisingly, anti-gun activist and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and the left-wing Joyce Foundation funded the research. The study cherry picks which states...

The Second Amendment doesn't grant Americans anything

I recently was watching one of the firearms-related outdoors programs on television where one of my favorite nationally-known firearms instructors was being interviewed. I became somewhat “shocked!” when that individual stated that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution grants us the right to possess and carry firearms. I thought I might have mis-heard what he said so I hit the replay...

Independence Day Reflection: SCOTUS v. The People

As we celebrate our national birthday, I'm reflecting proudly on our past, but as a gun owner and recreational shooter, I'm concerned for our future. Last week, two Supreme Court opinions led one of their own members (more on that below) to accuse the Court of being "drunk on power." In a dissenting opinion on gay marriage, Justice Antonin Scalia broadened his dissent with an accusation that the...

Independence Day

With the upcoming holiday, let's look at what it might mean to some people…a day off with pay, just a day off, family, friends, cookouts, reunions or just a day to lounge and watch the fireworks. As for me, I think of our Constitution, our founding fathers, our Bill of Rights, our military men and women who are performing their duties to protect our freedom. “FREEDOM”. We say it often, exclaiming...

Americans Comfortable Living Around Guns, Despite Decades–long Fear Campaign

The results of a Rasmussen Reports poll released June 12 provide further evidence of just how out-of-step the gun control movement is with the American people. In a survey of 977 likely voters, Rasmussen found that an overwhelming majority of Americans would rather live in a neighborhood where residents are allowed to own firearms than one that is completely disarmed. Specifically, the survey...

To the Editor: A good person with a gun is valuable

The following letter to the editor of the Toledo Blade was published on June 30, 2015: Your June 24 editorial “Firearms and forgiveness” is not only wrong in its opinion, but also is wrong in fact. Sadly, the House State Government Committee removed places of worship from the bill you cite more than two weeks before you published your editorial. I say sadly because a good person with a gun might...
