The following article will focus on mass shootings in American schools and how best to deter them.
Any human with a heart was undoubtedly shocked by what transpired at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24th, 2022.
Nineteen students and two teachers were murdered in cold blood. [Read more…] about In The Wake of Uvalde, What Should We Do?
Some purchase guns for protection and others own them for sport.
Whichever side one ascribes to, one truth is imminent; the round-up and ban of assault rifles by big government. [Read more…] about Take My Gun, Then Take My Freedom
I wasn’t born a gun enthusiast. My views and attitudes about firearms throughout my twenties were leftist.
I credit this to growing up in Canada. My socialization from elementary school right through university was the epitome of liberal.
My beliefs shifted soon after the bullshit in Iraq unfolded.
Until then, I was naive enough to believe in D.C. and those sworn into public office. [Read more…] about Gun Owner Bias
They told us we needed to be responsible, to comply for two weeks to flatten the curve. We didn’t think much at first.
A pandemic was an occurrence most of our parents had zero experience with, let alone us.
Unprecedented times call for extreme measures. Sure, we’ll play ball. [Read more…] about Omicron = Moronic
Day in, day out, we are inundated with messaging designed to keep us apart. Spotlights are shined on our perceived differences: political affiliation, class, race, gender, or religion. [Read more…] about The Death of a Nation
Making the call to defend yourself or your home with a firearm in the face of an attack or deadly threat may seem like a pretty straight-forward decision. A no-brainer, right? The problem is that there are a lot of factors involved that may make it more complicated than you might think. [Read more…] about Brandishing & Self Defense
The United States of America has been anything but united for the past fifteen years. But, there have been pockets of change amidst this pandemic that fill this narrator with hope. [Read more…] about The Beacon Nation
In December of 2019, the first stories broke about a new strain of virus ravaging mainland China. Videos of individuals falling flat on their faces leaked, dead as disco. Such imagery was only the beginning of the barrage of fear pumped into our veins. [Read more…] about Fear Always Leads to Compliance
I haven’t always been a gun advocate. If you were to call me anti-gun for much of the first half of my life, you would not get any objections from my end. It was not until halfway through my university stint that my attitudes towards firearms changed. [Read more…] about Research + Development
Control. Say the word aloud a few times, and think of the feelings that surface. Now do the same for the word power. Logically, for one to yield power, one must have control. And right now, in America, these two words go together like milk and cereal. [Read more…] about Control Shift Del
The United Kingdom has started vaccinating citizens. We ourselves are said to be weeks away, so the time to be a dutiful, law-abiding member of society has finally arrived.
What if you are of sound mind and feel it is in your best interest to decline the vaccine when the State comes knocking? Are we not a nation whose central tenet is freedom? Should it not be our own decision assuming we are capable of deciding what is best for us? [Read more…] about Vaccine? Pass
So now what?
I wish I knew. But, one thing is becoming increasingly clear; dissent is on the menu, and I don’t foresee it being out of order for quite some time.
Something is rotten in Denmark when it comes to how things went down starting on Tuesday, November 3rd. If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, then what is it? [Read more…] about Patriot Games
And here we are. In less than twenty-four hours, the polls will open, and millions of Americans will have their say as to who the next President of the United States will be.
The past week or so, I have been delving into media coverage of this showdown, flipping between CNN’s coverage and Fox News. It is daunting at times, as the spin doctors and powers that be continue to weave agendas through the countless talking heads they hire to orate desired scripts. Narratives are pushed from both camps, and finding anything of substance is often a crapshoot. [Read more…] about Arm Yourselves. Things Are About To Get Wild.
Today marks nineteen years to the day when everything changed; 9/11. I won’t get into my beliefs as to what occurred on our soil that day. I will not bore with details as to where I was that morning. It doesn’t change a thing, and more often than not, leads to contentious arguments with my inner circle. Right now, the world is gripped by uncertainty. An election is some fifty days away, and some states continue to suffocate their citizens with mandated lockdowns with no end in sight. Free advice; buy a gun. Seriously, buy two. [Read more…] about September 11th, 2001. Who Benefits?
2020 has been interesting, to say the least. First, a global pandemic that was initially said to wipe out 1-2 million Americans. And then, racial turmoil with demands to disband police departments reverberating throughout the union. Let’s first cast the lens on the novel Coronavirus, so that we may better connect the dots as to what might be transpiring before our eyes. [Read more…] about Chess, Not Checkers
Imagine this scenario for a moment – you’re the son of a billionaire known for his philanthropy. One night, your parents take you to the Opera located in a seedy part of town. After the show, your old man elects to take a short-cut through a desolate alley. His decision proves fatal. Not a minute through, the three of you are confronted by a gunman in his twenties who demands valuables. Your father does his best to comply, but as the gunman reaches for pearls hanging around your mother’s neck, dad’s protective gene kicks in and he lunges at the man. What happens next is tragic; the gunman reacts, pulls the trigger twice, and like that, you’re the wealthiest orphan north of the Mississippi.
COVID-19 brings the world to a screeching halt. Economies teeter, stocks plummet, and citizens become compliant robots all too willing to remain quarantined. Perhaps an election is lost by the incumbent (I’m crossing my fingers this does not occur). A year later, a vaccine is suddenly discovered. If you wish to board an airplane or cross into a neighboring state, not a problem as long as you possess legal documents proving you’ve received the vaccine. In other words, comply, and those in power can tell you what else is okay under their totalitarian state. Cite your freedoms and rights as a sovereign citizen, FEMA camps stage-right to re-educate you. Sound far fetched? Maybe not.
How safe are your guns?
How safe do they need to be?
Currently, there are more guns in personal possession in the U.S. than there are people. That’s a lot of firepower. Let’s take a look at the numbers:
- Less than half of all households claim to own any firearms at all – that means that more gun owners certainly have multiple weapons within their homes
- 54% of those owners report that they do not take measures to store all of their guns safely
- 20% of those households have small children in the home
- 10% of owners indicate that they keep all of their weapons unlocked and loaded
For most people, the concept of gun safety really isn’t an issue. You’re not high-risk, you take care of your firearms and take reasonable steps to make sure that they’re secure after use. That’s probably why government intervention hasn’t really been all that necessary up to now. [Read more…] about Safe Storage Continues To Be A Choice For Most
For the last week or so, we have witnessed several protests popping up in various cities across the U.S., mostly in places where the “Stay-at-Home” orders have crossed the line into infringement upon the citizens’ rights. One of the first things that the mainstream media is pointing out about these protests (after accusing the protesters of being far-right extremists) is that many of the people attending these protests are going armed.
