The uncomfortable truth about school shootings

Editor's Note: The following article first appeared on this website on October 4, 2006, in the wake of a massacre at an Amish school in Pennsylvania. Leaders at Buckeye Firearms Association have long-offered more than tweets about "thoughts and prayers," and in 2012 we put our ideas into action through the FASTER Saves Lives program . Anti-Second Amendment politicians and their media sycophants...

Think nothing has been done in the wake of recent mass shootings? Then you aren't paying attention.

I typically have a personal policy of not talking about shooting incidents as they happen. Anyone who's making political points off the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL is dancing in the blood of children. But since the various mom groups, bought and paid for by Michael Bloomberg and George Soros, do not feel the same, I'm going to comment today. I've been writing...

Another Tragedy - Another Blame Game

With news of [Wednesday]’s tragedy in Broward County, Florida we’re reeling -again- over the senseless slaughter of at least seventeen people. This time the tragedy is in Parkland, Florida, population 31,000. Again, the killer appears to be another angry teen. One expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for “disciplinary reasons”. Again, preliminary investigations are starting to point...

Trump’s Federal Court Appointments Will Help to Preserve Our Rights for a Generation

Government doesn’t always move quite as fast as we’d like. In recent years, members of both major political parties have complained about historic Congressional inaction. The requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act can slow down executive branch efforts to repeal or amend regulations. While it can be frustrating when our friends are in power, the more deliberative aspects of our system...

The Most Pro-Gun Song of All Time

If I asked you who wrote the most pro-gun song of all time, you'd probably assume it was Ted Nugent. But while the Motor City Madman has recorded some great tunes, he didn't write these lyrics: My daddy told me "son, don't let 'em take your gun. That's what they tryin' to do. Son, don't let 'em take your gun. They're takin' your bill of rights away from you." Those words are not from a punk...

New Preppers Ball coming March 10, 2018

As the 2018 Preppers Ball rolls around, we would like to share one woman’s experience at the 2017 Preppers Ball. This is an event that is produced and hosted by the pro 2A group REALIZEfac.com (a 501c3) which also hosts the Northeastern Ohio radio show www.EyeOnTheTargetRadio.com . Freda's view of the Preppers Ball ... Driving in Northeastern Ohio occupies a large portion of my workday. My radio...

HSUS Roiled by Pacelle Accusations, Resignations

If you’ve been reading The Outdoor Wire very long, you know I’m no fan of the so-called Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). It’s one of those false-flagged organizations that spends the majority of its millions of dollars in annual donations not on protecting and saving animals, but pushing animal rights causes and trying its best to demonize hunters, anglers, farmers and anyone else who...
