    I watched as stone-faced Patricia W. Hill, a “Research Assistant Professor” from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, was found guilty on May 21, 2018, of a misdemeanor crime for defacing the private home of NRA’s Chris Cox. Cox is the charismatic Executive Director of the Institute for Legislative Action, the political and lobbying arm of the National Rifle Association. Patricia Hill - well, she is not a fan of the NRA. Cox’s security detail observed and recorded Hill as she approached his home and sprayed red substance on the front steps of the Cox family residence. The substance appeared to be...

  • Washington Post: Can Americans ditch guns the way we ditched cigarettes?

    Not that long ago, cigarettes were completely woven into American culture. The Marlboro Man, posters telling us that “more doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette,” even the armrests on planes and all our cars were designed for smokers. And now? Not so much. Can it work like that with guns? (snip) I grew up surrounded by cigarette smoke. My dad smoked. So did practically everyone else I knew. But my kids? Totally different. They saw someone smoking in a restaurant while we were traveling abroad recently and they freaked out, like they’d witnessed a beheading. Inconceivable in their world.

    Santa Fe is the latest tragedy in a line of catastrophic school shootings. Our children are sitting ducks in their schools these days.Our children are everything to us. They are our future. Our happiness. Our light.Why is it that we do not protect our most precious humans like we protect our banks, or police stations, or courthouses? Why are Americans so lackadaisical when it comes to school security measures?The Problem:I attended a City Council meeting and observed PTA mothers ask City Council to NOT place any armed police officers in their kids’ school. They said they did not want anyone armed...

    I have been busy helping pick up the pieces after the death of a friend of 48 years. For the last few days, I ate breakfast at a McDonalds in Middleton, Wisconsin, part of the far left liberal environs centered around Dane County and Madison, Wisconsin.  My friend had lived most of his life in Madison and Middleton. He was a lifelong Second Amendment supporter, lifetime master pistol shooter, and a mentor. At the McDonalds, I struck up conversation with a gentleman who I suspected to be a liberal. We had a connection because he was searching for information...

    Before launching into the tired jokes that would normally begin his late-night show on Friday, Jimmy Kimmel - or ‘America’s Conscience’ (in his own mind at least), felt the need to give his audience yet another lecture on gun control.“So [politicians] sit there with their hands in their pockets, pockets that are full of gun money, and they do nothing,” said Kimmel. “They just wait for the outrage to pass because it didn’t happen to their children. The least you can do is register to vote, right now. Make sure we vote for politicians who will do something.”Since another sadistic...

IÂ’m just irritated because I wonÂ’t be getting my morning dose of news.

    The Hill ^ | 05/20/18 | Mallory Shelbourne
    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in an interview on Sunday blamed the National Rifle Association (NRA) for the lack of action in Congress on gun control legislation. Sanders told host Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that it’s “unspeakable” that students are no longer surprised by school shootings. “It’s a three-letter word. It’s the NRA,” Sanders said. “And it’s Trump and the Republicans who don’t have the guts to stand up to these people and that’s pretty pathetic." Sanders’s remarks come after 10 people were killed in a shooting at a high school in Texas late last week. The Vermont...

    One might expect the National Rifle Association would opt to burn its money in a huge bonfire before contributing to the campaign of hard-left zealot Sen. Elizabeth Warren, but that didn’t stop the Massachusetts Democrat from pledging not to take donations from the pro-Second Amendment group. Proving that Democrats have never met a catchy slogan they will not rally around to create a groundswell of support for their failed agenda, Warren took the pledge being pushed by NoNRAMoney.org, which has declared that “it’s time to make the NRA politically radioactive.” “I pledge not to take a single penny from the...

    Incoming National Rifle Association President Oliver North says school shootings are the product of a “culture of violence,” not the Second Amendment. “The problem that we’ve got is we’re trying like the dickens to treat the symptom without treating the disease,” Mr. North said on “Fox News Sunday.” “And the disease in this case isn’t the Second Amendment. The disease is youngsters who are steeped in a culture of violence.” He said everything from violence on television to Ritalin, a drug used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, may be contributing to the problem. “Nearly all of these perpetrators are...

    The teenager who allegedly used a shotgun and a revolver to kill 10 people and wound 10 others at a Texas high school Friday admitted he didn't shoot people he liked and meant to kill the ones he did target, a probable cause affidavit says. Suspect Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, has cooperated with police, said Galveston County Magistrate Mark Henry said. Henry denied bail for the student, who is accused of capital murder of multiple people and aggravated assault on a public servant. Students at Santa Fe High School, not far from Houston in southeastern Texas, scrambled for safety after they...

    "The media has got to stop creating more of these monsters by oversaturation," Loesch said on NRATV Friday, just hours after a deadly shooting at Santa Fe High School claimed 10 lives. "I’m not saying don’t responsibly report on things as they happen," she continued. "Look, I understand it. But constantly showing the image of the murderer, constantly saying their name is completely unnecessary." Loesch argued that the names of shooters are often widely known because of media reporting or social media posts, and could prove tempting for would-be shooters looking for notoriety. She talked of a study that showed...

Trump addressed the school shooting shortly after news broke that there were multiple casualties.

Mr Pagourtzis, was denied bail after he was charged with capital murder and aggravated assault on a...
