What Hillary Gets Wrong in Her Gun Control Push – Again

By Larry Keane Gun-grabbers like Hillary Clinton, just can’t help themselves apparently. IMG iStock 1195632653 U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Hillary Clinton just can’t help herself.

Star Trek convention or Star Wars bar?

Posted here mostly so I can find it easily in the future is a link to a 1996 piece comparing CPAC to a Star Trek con: In short, Trekkies are to average television fans what Iranian Shiites are to average Muslims -- or what CPAC attendees are to average Republicans.

The G-Man

An interesting take on G. Gordon Liddy by Brian Karem: Liddy had a sense of humor, and didn’t mind when I made fun of anything he did; his main concern that I was accurate in telling the story. If he actually did it, and I called him on, he would own it. And while he had a reputation as a violent man, he said sometimes it was justified. “What gets me angry very rapidly is to see someone in a superior social position degrade someone with a lesser social standing who cannot defend himself.”Liddy's...
