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. Let’s also not forget the lunacy of Open Carry Texas which threatened groups like Moms Demand Action for opposing […]

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.

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 […]

Columbine, Sandy Hook, Atlanta, Las Vegas and Portland – these are just a few names in the ever-growing list of places that have hit the news with yet another shooting, another story of senseless gun violence.

Too Many Have Died

“Too many have died.” Richard Martinez, his voice raw with grief, yelled those words at the world during a press conference. His son Christopher was murdered on Friday during a mass shooting, along with six others. While speaking to the media, Christoper’s father spoke about what a “really great kid” Chris was, and stated “You don’t think it’ll […]

Wacko Alex Jones Exploits Oklahoma Tornadoes to Promote Conspiracy Theory

Anyone who knows me knows that I loathe conspiracy theorists.  To me it’s the lowest form of political debate.  You can never win an argument with any of these kinds of people because whatever proof you present to them will be dismissed as “part of the conspiracy.” And let’s be honest, anyone can come up […]
