    In another thread I commented how it was typical for someone in the Brady Campaign to be interviewed any time some major firearm event made the news, but other groups with larger and more right wing membership are rarely heard from. A poster here recently asked about some official counts of...

    A liberal finally gets it; considers buying a gun.

    imported post http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/06/why_do_liberals_bleed.html Its fascinating to read about a liberal's thought processes, especially when the scales start to fall from her eyes. She's starting the road to recovery, but it won't be easy since she lives in Berkeley.

    imported post http://www.courier-journal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/200906040540/NEWS01/906040362 Speaks for itself. The pastor wants them to only carry unloaded, however. There are the usual illogical religious comments from the antis: " Jesus told us to put down the sword and pick up...

    Dinner for Dan at Freemason Abbey

    imported post I just contacted Dan. He is up (or down?) for a dinner at the Abbey this Friday at 7 PM. Does anyone know if they take reservations? I can call, but will need an estimate of how many of you will be there.

    Some toilet humor......

    imported post http://www.dailypress.com/news/nationworld/sns-ap-odd-toilet-shot,0,688005.story The story in this link should be sub-titled "Only in America". It must have been a real mess, and probably happened because some CC guy didn't have a good retention rig. :uhoh: Still, "that's pretty...

    The California Looney Left strikes again

    imported post http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2008/04/california_gun_owners_face_fur.html This is the kind of viciousness posing as "crime control" we could expect from Obama or Hillary: Fascism with a smile. "Its for the good of the community". The ammunition issue may be the next...

    imported post http://townhall.com/columnists/MikeSAdams/2008/04/28/time_to_compromise_on_gun_control?page=1 I've always liked Mike Adams' columns. He's an openly-GOP professor in a rabidly liberal university environment who writes some interesting columns from behind the lines. You may have to...

    Daily Press editorial 10-20-07

    imported post Thought you might like to see part of the latest Daily Press editorial mentioning VCDL. It's been almost a year since VCDL put an excerpt from a DP editorial on their homepage, and the humor-impaired liberals at the Press evidently just found out. They are responding with their...
