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 […]

Dear Republicans: The NRA and the Gun Lobby Are Playing You All for Fools

One of the biggest cons perpetuated on the American people is the paranoid fear-mongering that often accompanies the “gun debate” and the Second Amendment. Here we have an amendment that literally starts out with the words, “A well regulated militia..,” yet gun fanatics almost always ignore that part. Instead, they typically only mention the “shall […]

I Am A White Gun Owner, And I Hate The NRA

President Obama’s Executive Action Is A Good Thing For Gun Owners

Republicans Are Failing Horribly At Attracting Minority Voters

If Republicans want to remain politically viable over the next few election cycles, they must confront the fact that the ethnic landscape of America is changing. In the last few years since Mitt Romney embarrassingly lost 83% of the minority vote, they have tried to promote minority candidates as proof that they are not out […]

The NRA And The GOP Are Equally Responsible For America’s Mass Shootings

Let me preface this article on mass shootings and the NRA by stating that I am a gun owner. I currently own a .243 Savage bolt action hunting rifle, a 12 gauge shotgun, and a .40 caliber Smith and Wesson M&P Shield handgun. Since I was a young child, I have used firearms and know […]

Texas Republican Tony Dale Warns Terrorists Could Exploit State’s Gun Laws

Texas is notorious for its gun culture. Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen an expansion of laws allowing the open carry of guns, as well as allowing students to carry firearms on college campuses.

Sandy Hook Conspiracy Nut Disrupts Charity Race For Slain Newtown Teacher

Almost 3 years ago, a crazed 20-year-old gunman, armed with an AR-15 assault rifle and two pistols, gunned down 20 elementary school children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Almost as soon as the shooting was reported, conspiracy nuts declared that the horrific killing didn’t really happen. As ridiculous as it may seem, […]
