Today’s gun madness – let’s ban hammers; assault weapon ban akin to racism

By: Friday January 4, 2013 2:56 pm

The stupid, it burns. But it just keeps on coming. I really think that there is something wrong in the head with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX). Every time he opens his mouth utter nonsense comes out. Today’s classic, from an appearance on the Dennis Miller Show… (via Think Progress): O’CONNOR: I want to ask you a [...]

Armed Teacher Training Program launches in 15 states; ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws = increase in homicides

By: Thursday January 3, 2013 6:00 am

These two stories are real signs of the screwed-up times. Boy, this is a bad idea on so many levels – teachers are already in high-stress positions — imagine dealing with middle-school-age, hormone-racing kids all day for one thing. Add on the responsibility of being in charge of your firearm, to keep it safeguarded yet [...]

How about this, NRA? Two firefighters shot to death as they came to put out blaze (updated)

Guns, the American rage culture, and refusal to take mental health issues seriously

By: Saturday December 15, 2012 6:23 am

I hope that there is a fruitful discussion about how families and elected officials can focus on identifying and treating mental illness as a priority while we deal with the inevitable calls for more gun regulation on one side and guns in every hand on the other in the wake of yet another tragic violent [...]

Bryan Fischer: Jesus taught that it’s your right to lock and load

By: Wednesday December 5, 2012 12:00 pm

WWJD w/a TEC-9? The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer goes for the American Masculine Gun-Toting Jesus interpretation of the Bible this time. This twisted view of Christ’s teachings really brings it home that you can read just about anything in the Good Book, even though it clearly must require heavy mind-altering meds or lack of sanity [...]
