Is Brett Fryar crazy or is civil war inevitable?

Is Brett Fryar crazy or is civil war inevitable?
If you google Brett Fryar, you’ll find that he’s a 50-year old chiropractor in Lubbock, Texas.  Checking his reviews, which average 1.5 out of 5, the first thing that pops up labels Fryar as a quack and a crook. Could a quack and a crook find a better cult leader than Donald Trump? Fryar is... Read more »

No, Terry Quinn, semi-automatic rifles do not have legitimate civilian uses

No, Terry Quinn, semi-automatic rifles do not have legitimate civilian uses
I recently read an article in Colorado’s Vail Daily entitled, “Semi-automatic rifles have legitimate uses.”  You can read it yourself by clicking HERE. The article, written by Terry Quinn  is a collection of worn out, specious and disingenuous arguments. Mr. Quinn’s remarks are sound bytes from the NRA playbook. The nomenclature is irrelevant.

Guns, Violence and Advertising in the Age of Trumpism, Hate and Fear
The above advertisement caught my eye as I thumbed through a magazine while cooling my heels at the Denver airport. It’s a lot to take in. There’s a casual, but urgent proffer of weapons of annihilation.  I’m not anti-gun but let’s face it, the AR-15 is exquisitely designed to inflict catastrophic damage to flesh and... Read more »

Don't Let Alex Jones Tell You that the Las Vegas Massacre was a Hoax

Don't Let Alex Jones Tell You that the Las Vegas Massacre was a Hoax
Note: Between the time I wrote this piece and the time I hit the “Publish” button, the NRA has asked the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to review whether “bump stocks” comply with federal law.  I’m going to need time to digest this new development, but I plan to err on the side...

Assault rifles are neccesary to keep the government on its toes

Jimmy Lee Dykes may be the poster boy for the National Rifle Association, Gayle Trotter and pot-bellied men making love to assault rifles everywhere.
