Senate Legislation Would Fix Flawed Court Decision on Arming School Staff

On Sept. 2, 2020, the Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee voted 6-3 in favor of Senate Bill 317 . This is the first step toward correcting a terrible court decision that would prevent school districts from allowing teachers and other school staff to carry a concealed firearm in schools to protect students. Earlier this year, the 12th District Court of Appeals in Southwest Ohio ruled...

Gun Control End Game

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris want to ban and confiscate commonly owned firearms. If anti-gun politicians take control of the White House and Congress, will they stop at confiscation of semi-automatic rifles? For the answer, look to the source of inspiration for so many gun control dreams: Australia. If Biden and Harris follow the Aussie example, even Americans’ toy guns won’t be safe. Tasmanian...

Contrived Data at Odds with Lived Reality

Social science research is not as clear-cut as the hard sciences; research findings require interpretation and explanation. The findings have to be plausible. When the explanations are not grounded and experienced reality conflicts with the findings, the validity of the research should be questioned.

Shooting at the Speed of Decision Making

One of my struggles as a shooter focused on personal defense has been in the area of shooting faster. A couple of training courses I’ve attended had tests at the end of the course that put an emphasis on shooting fast. Most of the time, I’d watch myself and other students shoot fast and miss. Misses aren’t acceptable in a gunfight, not only because they waste time, but because they can cause...

A Biden-Harris Administration Will Make You an Offer You Can’t Refuse

It’s no secret that most in the legacy media do not support the Second Amendment; at least, not a proper interpretation of what that amendment actually protects. It’s also no secret that most of those same purveyors of “news” will do everything they can to attack President Trump, and defend the Biden-Harris ticket—now the official Democrat ticket for President in 2020—any chance they can get.
