Slippery slope? What slippery slope?

Just because the magic number regarding magazine size is 10 (and anything more than that is an evil assault high ammunition magazine clip) doesn’t mean that they’ll ever decide that 10 is too many.


Gun Bills Filed in Tennessee Legislature

House members are limited to sponsoring 15 bills this year, because…well no one’s really sure. Anyway, here’s what’s been filed:

HB 0010 by *Faison: As introduced, prohibits the allocation of state or local public funds to the regulation or enforcement of any federal law, executive order, rule or regulation that becomes effective on or […]

Thought for the day

J.J. Sefton:

If we do not choose a hill to die on, the left will choose for us a ditch to die in.

Here we go

White House endorses banning private firearm sales (which the Newtown Nutjob didn’t use) and normal capacity magazines.

Let’s see if the GOP has any backbone. I’m not hopeful.

Deterrence is not prevention

Yesterday, the President said this:

We can’t tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change. We will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. No single law—no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world, or prevent every senseless act of […]

Post Election Activities

I took the day after Barackalypse off. I had planned to for a long time because either way the election went I was gonna be hung over.

There was a new tidbit I hadn’t heard before:

Presumably, this was on orders from Speaker Harwell. Maggart was primaried because she spent so much time […]

“It’s not like you’re going to start voting Democrat over this”

It’s been reported that TN House Republican Caucus Leader Debra Maggart said this to some TFA folks when they expressed their displeasure at her blocking gun rights bills last session.

Well, Debra, you’re right. We probably wouldn’t start voting for Democrats.

But we will primary your ass.

Have fun in retirement! The NRA and TFA […]

Help me get the word out about state-level organizations

As non-RSS readers may have noticed, I now have a link on the sidebar to join the NRA*. While I have had some criticism for their marketing plan in the past, I still think it’s a valuable organization–especially at the federal level.

As a long-time member of the Tennessee Firearms Association, I have seen […]
