While fact checking a speech

Yes, I do perform fact checking. Not on everything, but items that seem too good/bad to be true. So, I was listening to one of the Lake Land protesters during the walkout the other day. She made the claim that the number one cause of death for kids was gun… Continue reading

Can we play a game called reality check?

By a guest writer (not sure how he would prefer the by line)   Can we play a game called Reality Check for a moment? Everyone’s flipping a bitch about modern gun laws and how what the forefathers used were muskets so the rules need to change, blah blah blah…… Continue reading

One school shooting you WON’T see on the national stage or in the media.

The best way to deal with a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun. http://bearingarms.com/good-guy-with-a-gun-armed-school-officer-stopped-arapahoe/   So why won’t the media give praise to this officer, when they are more than willing to condemn gun owners for one persons actions when it isn’t stopped… Continue reading

Why must someone be prosecuted?

The general media has little time to report on such incidents, because they don’t bring in the ratings or aren’t within the political beliefs of the editor/owners of… Continue reading

Is this the beginning of, or escalation… Continue reading

Back to the gun issue again

Why the hype about guns?

Ever since Obama was first elected there has been a ton of hype about how he would take away our guns. We saw runs on ammo as well as an increase in arms sales. Why the hype? Is there any foundation to the hysteria? I cannot tell you how many… Continue reading
