"Student-led" anti-gun march is just another Bloomberg astroturf show

Gun rights advocates have long-maintained that there is a vast difference between groups such as the National Rifle Association or Buckeye Firearms Association, made up of millions of individual paid members, and groups which espouse a gun control point of view and claim to represent a majority of the country, but which have very few, if any, actual paid members. In 2005, I was priviledged to sit...

PoliceOne.com: 4 key takeaways from the Fla. high school shooting

A 19-year-old man shot and killed 17 students and adults at a high school in Parkland, Florida, and wounded many more. The man is in police custody after he surrendered to them “without incident.” We will learn more about this horrific crime as the investigation continues, but even at this early stage, we can identify useful pieces of information from the reporting to highlight several...

John Kasich's best idea to stop school shootings is a retread two decades-old idea even HE admitted was a failure

"I'm not gonna f#$! with your guns!" That is what John Kasich (R) pulled me aside to tell me back on April 13, 2009. We had just finished a 15-20 minute roundtable discussion on the subject of Kasich's record on gun rights. The former congressman-turned Fox News analyst had been traversing the state, seeking to secure support in his first bid for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, in an...

Active Killers Using Fire Alarms to Facilitate an Attack

Everyone is talking about the latest school shooting and looking for solutions. I’ve been writing about how to solve this problem for more than a decade. It isn’t easy. While the ultimate solution will be found in prevention efforts, those efforts are both difficult to institute and costly. While not ignoring any preventative efforts, I believe that in the shorter term we have the ability to...

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...
