…And Justice For All (but not you)

Justice is lost
Justice is raped
Justice is gone
Pulling your strings
Justice is done
Seeking no truth
Winning is all
Find it so grim, so true, so real

Metallica, …And Justice For All

Animal rights activists have found a new target:  James Hetfield, lead singer and the brains behind the legendary metal band Metallica. Continue reading

Showdown: Bloomberg vs. Reality

bloomberg

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is at it again. This time he’s convinced himself that a top-down organization funded by rich liberals like himself is a “grass-roots effort”. Last week he announced “Everytown for Gun Safety“, a terrible play on words that switches the word “New” with “Every” in a shameless attempt to evoke emotion over a tragedy. The new organization is an umbrella group for his two other gun groups, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” and “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America”. Continue reading

Harvard Study: Gun Control Does Not Reduce Murder Rates

For those of you interested in Second Amendment rights and all the facts that suggest an armed society is a polite society, check out Vigilant Vote’s analysis of a Harvard study released last year.

Harvard College has done a study on the effects of gun control, printed in the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, and found that murder rates do not wane because of gun control. Rather, “the determinants of murder and suicide are basic social, economic, and cultural factors, not the prevalence of some form of deadly mechanism.” The study found that where guns are unavailable as murder weapons, other tools are substituted. It further found that some countries with low rates of gun ownership still have quite high murder rates. The study mostly focused on European countries when comparing rates of gun ownership to murder rates.

Russia had one of the lowest rates of gun ownerships at 4,000 gun owners per 100,000 people, yet the murder rate is 20.54 per 100,000 people. On the reverse side of these stats was Finland with 39,000 gun owners per 100,000 residents, and a murder…

A Letter to My Congressmen

US Congress

This morning I wrote several letters concerning the upcoming gun control legislation to the congressmen who represent my congressional district and my state:  Representative Ed Perlmutter, Senator Michael Bennet, and Senator Mark Udall.  Unfortunately, all three are affiliated with the Democratic party, making any discussion about the personal liberty of guns an uphill battle.  Regardless, I decided to plow ahead and send them a respectful, reasonable, and logical letter on the topic.

Guns Across America – Colorado


Denver Capitol Gun Rally

Yesterday a rally entitled “Guns Across America” was held at each state capitol to demonstrate to the government that our rights are not up for “discussion”, nor are they to be sold to the highest bidding politician. Continue reading

Obama (Unsurprisingly) Exploits Children

President Obama Exploits Children

On January 16, 2013, President Barack Obama signed 23 executive orders seeking to “curb gun violence” while several children surrounded him.  These children weren’t picked at random; instead, they are the authors of several letters that President Obama is touting as another reason to give government more control in the sale of guns nationwide.  Here’s the full text of the letter from Grant Fitz, an eight year old who stood with Obama as he signed the orders: Continue reading
