The NRA Is Lying, Liberals Don’t Want To Take Your Guns

Living here in Louisiana, it isn’t hard to find a pickup truck with an NRA sticker on it. Guns are part of the culture here, and I’m OK with that for the most part. The Second Amendment was intended to ensure that men of military age were able to own weapons to defend a fledgling […]

Virginia Revokes Out-Of-State Concealed Carry Permits, Gun Fanatics Flip Out

Concealed carry laws allowing people to carry concealed handguns are in place in many states across the United States. In the hands of a responsible individual who is trained and understands the laws, the ability to carry a weapon isn’t necessarily a bad thing – an opinion I know many liberals will likely disagree with […]

The NRA Represents A Part Of America Desperate To Hold On to White Supremacy

Sometimes with national news stories like last week’s shooting in Oregon, I prefer to let a few days go by before writing about it. In the heat of the moment, it is easy to say something you later wish you hadn’t, especially when all the details of the story haven’t come to light yet. Now […]

The 5 Craziest Conservative Claims About President Obama

It is no secret that the right-wing has disrespected President Obama in a multitude of ways. He’s been referred to as a dictator, a fascist, a totalitarian, and many other things that are far too offensive to mention. We are six and a half years into his presidency, and literally none of their outlandish fear-mongering […]

Florida Man Designs “Crusader” Assault Rifle That Will “Never Be Used By Muslim Terrorists”

When you hear about a really bizarre news story, it’s often out of a Southern state like Alabama, Louisiana or Texas – but nobody has the market cornered on crazy quite like Florida. Whether it’s George Zimmerman trying to pander to racists by selling Confederate flag prints or a man blinding a sheriff’s helicopter pilot with a laser hair […]

If You Say #CopsLivesMatter, Then You Need To Support Reasonable Gun Laws

Much has been made in local news recently about two Louisiana police officers who were shot and killed in the line of duty. The weekend before last near Lake Charles, State Trooper Steven Vincent was shot by a man who had a long criminal history when Trooper Vincent approached his vehicle which was stuck in […]

Walmart Will Stop Selling Assault Rifles, Gun Fanatics Freak Out

As a former loss prevention employee of the company, I never thought I would find myself praising Walmart for anything. While the retailer has a lot of issues, in the interest of fairness, I have to give them credit when they do something right – even when it’s for business reasons instead of caring about […]

America’s Gun Violence Problem Spiraled Out Of Control Long Ago, And We Just Don’t Care

The latest national news story involving gun violence comes from Smith Mountain Lake, about 90 miles from where I grew up in Virginia. This morning, two employees of the TV station WDBJ7 were shot during a live broadcast at Bridgewater Plaza, apparently by a disgruntled ex-employee who I will not name here. WDBJ7 photographer Adam […]

George Zimmerman Selling Confederate Flag Prints To Support ‘Muslim-free’ Gun Store

On the Internet, everyone is trying to get their 15 minutes of fame, or desperately hold on to the public’s attention for as long as they can. There are staged viral videos, fake controversies and even in politics, we have stupid questions about a candidate’s hair. It is a sad fact that something as useful […]

This Is Why Businesses Insist On Gun-Free Zones

In the wake of the recent theater shooting here in Lafayette, the usual gun fanatics have come out of the woodwork to claim the shooter chose the Grand 16 because it is part of a number of “gun-free zones.” Gov. Bobby Jindal, ever the opportunist, quickly came out and said that now was not the […]
