Rolling Stone’s seven steps to winning the war against the NRA

Jazz trumpeter Miles Davis had it right in 1963 – coincidentally, the year that Colt introduced the AR-15 to the civilian market – when he named one of his band’s classic albums “Seven Steps To Heaven.” The release features exceptionally creative improvisations by Davis, tenor saxophonist George Coleman, pianists Victor Feldman and Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, and drummers Frank Butler and...

Gun rights advocacy starts over the backyard grill

We all like talking about guns at the gun show. We are comfortable when surrounded by friends and family who share our passion and enthusiasm for collecting and shooting. It’s easy and enjoyable to “preach to the choir,” but we need to reach out to the “non-believers.” Too many gun owners shy away from discussing Second Amendment issues with their neighbor, school teachers, friends at church, or...

Appellate Court Upholds Privacy Law, Tells Anti-Gun Doctors to Take a Powder

In a victory for gun owners who pay to visit doctors for medical care, and not the political opinions of their physicians, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit has upheld Florida’s Firearm Owner’s Privacy Act. This law was passed after an escalating series of events in which patients were harassed or denied access to services because they refused to be interrogated by their doctors...

FASTER Class Level 2 raises concept of armed response in school to new level

At the conclusion of the first Level 2 FASTER (Faculty & Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response) class last week, I was filled with pride. Not just a happy, proud moment, but a deep pride in a reality that far exceeded my wildest dreams. The concept of armed response in our schools has been raised to a whole new level. I was saying goodbye to teachers and school superintendents...

Op-Ed: Armed doctor saved lives

On Thursday afternoon, Dr. Lee Silverman undoubtedly saved many lives. Using a handgun, the Delaware County psychiatrist stopped what both police and the district attorney described as a certain mass killing at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital. The attacker, Richard Plotts, is a convicted felon, which bans him from legally owning a gun. But Pennsylvania's universal background check law did not stop him...

BACKFIRE: Bloomberg's "Everytown" for gun control ad sparks pro-gun conversation on The View

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg's newly-minted gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety isn't getting off to a very good start, especially for a group that, like its predecessors (Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America), didn't start with the grassroots and is simply PR smoke and mirrors. At the time it was launched in April, and despite the fact that he can...

Colorado's Experience Soundly Refutes Common Anti-gun Talking Point

Last month, while addressing a group of Colorado sheriffs, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper spoke on the topic of the state's 2013 measure outlawing almost all private transfers of firearms. According to the Denver Post, Hickenlooper told the sheriffs, "I think we screwed that up completely... we were forming legislation without basic facts." A new Associated Press report examining Colorado...

Biden, Bloomberg Describe Second Amendment Supporters with Vulgarities and Slurs

What is it with the elitist political class and their insulting, arrogant, even vulgar comments about gun owners and others who live in Heartland America? It’s been going on a long time and continues to this day, even though it gets gun control supporters nowhere. In 1985, then-New York governor Mario Cuomo said that people who oppose mandatory seat belt laws are “hunters who drink beer, don’t...
