    A Fish and Game commissioner in Idaho who came under fire for circulating images of he and his wife posing with dead animals during a hunt in Africa resigned on Monday, saying he had made "poor judgments." In a letter to Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter, the commissioner, Blake Fischer, said those judgments "resulted in sharing photos of a hunt in which I did not display an appropriate level of sportsmanship and respect for the animals I harvested." While claiming the photos were out of character, Fischer apologized and said he hoped the photos would "not harm the integrity and...

    There are a lot of reasons I’m not a Democrat. For example, I believe that… 1. Jesus, America, and capitalism have been the three greatest forces of good in world history. 2. An attractive woman posing with an AR-15 beats a screaming feminist in a pussy hat 10 times out of 10. 3. You can’t #believeallwomen or #believeallmen; you have to #believetheevidence. 4. It’s wrong and disgusting to harass people in restaurants and at their home just because you disagree with them politically. Also if you block traffic to get attention for your cause, whatever it may be, I am...
  • The Democratic Party Returns To Its Roots: Racism and Division

    Kanye West visited President Donald Trump at the White House last week, appearing with football legend Jim Brown at the Oval Office. The meeting, designed to bring attention to prison reform, took a dramatic turn when West engaged in a protracted monologue covering topics such as his love for President Trump, the power of the MAGA hat, and the link between welfare and the Thirteenth Amendment. Needless to say, the speech, which was all over the map, was vintage Kanye, inclusive of a few bad words that ought not be uttered in a public forum held at the Oval Office...

    Police in Spokane, located in eastern Washington state, will soon have all 181 rifles equipped with suppressors, something the department says will protect officers and civilians from hearing damage. The move is said to protect the department from workers compensation claims and civilian lawsuits. “It’s nothing more than like the muffler you put on your car,” Lt. Rob Boothe, the range master and lead firearms instructor for the department, told the Spokesman-Review. According to City Council President Ben Stuckart, residents wanted to know why the police department needed suppressors. “I had a couple citizens contact me about why the police...

  • Abrams was asked if she’ll ‘take away’ guns. Here’s a detailed look at her [disingenuous] response

    10/15/2018 6:17:15 AM PDT · by Lazamataz · 56 replies
    Stacy Abrams is attempting to become Governor of Georgia. One of her primary focuses is gun control and gun bans. From the article: Near the end of Stacey Abrams’ latest town hall meeting, she heard a question that’s become a near-ritual at these events. A voter wanted to know if talk that Abrams “is going to take away all of the guns” is correct. Her gun stance is a key factor in the race, not least because she embraces firearms restrictions and openly wars with the gun lobby, a shift that breaks with the party’s decades-old political approach to the...

    Looting lead to a deadly shooting overnight in Panama City. Witness Landon Swett said a man tried to steal a police car. "He yelled at me a little bit. He said, oh I’m looting and he opened the door to the police officer’s SUV with the lights going, got in it and shut the door,” said Swett. That's when Swett took his family to safety. Moments later, shots were fired.
  • Fight over Kavanaugh got attention, but Dem appointees remain in firm control of fed Circuit courts.

    Fox News ^ | October 14, 2018 | John R Lott Jr
    Republicans are ecstatic and Democrats are livid about Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation as a Supreme Court justice. But while the Supreme Court is important, many Americans tend to exaggerate its powers. Democrats still firmly control the nation’s district courts and circuit courts of appeals, where virtually all federal judicial decisions are made. Even if Republicans keep control of the Senate in the Nov. 6 midterm elections, the balance of power on these courts isn't going to change in the next two years. The Supreme Court grants oral arguments to about 80 cases a year. The nation’s highest court decides another...

    It must be exhausting. The idea that everyone is out to get you is classically thought of as extreme paranoia. However, some people probably do have some grounds to be concerned about their safety. After all, there are those in the world who receive death threats by the dozens. But even one death threat is enough to make anyone concerned. It doesn’t help when you go out of your way to piss people off, either. Perhaps that’s why anti-gun activist and Parkland kid Emma Gonzalez decided to admit that she’s terrified someone with a gun sticker on their car will...
  • Attacker Shot Dead After Stabbing Two Victims, Saying “Happy Halloween”

    10/13/2018 10:54:47 AM PDT · by Simon Green · 27 replies
    Around 10:00 p.m. Tuesday night, a 27-year-old man in New Haven, Connecticut, was suddenly attacked while walking down the street. The attacker, “an adult black man holding a knife,” allegedly said “Happy Halloween” and stabbed the victim in the bicep. As it turns out, that sentiment was premature, as he didn’t live long enough to celebrate Halloween. The victim’s 24-year-old cousin, who was waiting in his car nearby, overheard the noise and stepped out with his firearm, which he has a valid permit to carry. After he was also stabbed by the attacker (in the elbow), the cousin shot and...
  • NRA to Congressional Gun Controllers: The American People Will Never Give Up Their Guns

    On Friday, the NRA posted a message for gun controllers in Congress and elsewhere saying, “We the People will never give up our guns.” The tweet from the NRA comes as Democrats double down on gun control as a central message for the fast-approaching midterms. The tweet coincides with Democrat Phil Bredesen (TN) running for Senate on a gun control platform in Tennessee and Democrat Beto O’Rourke running on a gun control platform against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in Texas. Gun control legislation sponsor Kyrsten Sinema (D) is vying for a Senate seat against pro-gun Martha McSally (R) in Arizona....

    Idaho Statesman ^ | 10/12/18 | Chase Cripe
    Idaho Fish and Game Commissioner Blake Fischer shared photos of his guided hunting trip in Africa with friends and colleagues when he returned last month, expecting they’d appreciate his success. Instead, several former Fish and Game commissioners are pushing for his resignation — with a photo of a “family of baboons” that Fischer shot with a recurve bow prompting most of the outrage. Fred Trevey, who was a Fish and Game commissioner from 2007 to 2015, wrote Fischer an email asking him to resign “to shield the commission as an institution and hunting as a legitimate tool of wildlife management...

    Richard Bong was born on September 24th, 1920. My father was born on January 22, 1918, less than two years earlier.

    Two visitors to a Houston shooting range leaped way over the line when it came to basic gun safety and found themselves escorted out, for good. Top Gun Range on Beverly Hill Street in Houston posted the shocking video on their social media page this week in hopes it could be a valuable training tool in what not to do when on the line. “Great job from our Range Safety Officer in stopping and addressing a safety violation on the range,” noted Top Gun before providing the backstory to the short video that shows two patrons clowning around with a...

    Buckeye Firearms has highlighted a case of judicial activism in Ohio. The Ohio Supreme Court is proposing to change the rules on the confiscation and return of firearms in Ohio, particularly in cases involving orders of protection.  Sean Maloney, a firearms attorney, has written an analysis of the proposed changes in the rules in Ohio.  Many of the rules make changes that the Ohio legislature specifically refused to implement.  From Sean Maloney's analysis: Accordingly, Appellate Courts have consistently held that, an order to surrender firearms to police absent a “sufficient nexus,” is an abuse of discretion when no evidence...
