Your Problem with Guns or Gays Is Not Political

Last month, I did something I’d done only once before: I went to a range and shot some guns. Lots of guns. All shapes, ages and sizes. This is a very strange thing to do for a guy born British. Guns feature nowhere in British culture. Accordingly, I was unsurprised by the reaction of my mother when I called home and told her that I’d had a great time learning about firearms and discovering I wasn’t a bad shot, even with a...

Pennsylvania Senate Committee Says Pigeon Shoots are Animal Cruelty

HARRISBURG, Pa.—There is a remote possibility that Pennsylvania will finally ban the cruel practice of live pigeon shoots when the state senate reconvenes in September. Pennsylvania is the last state where pigeon shoots are legally held. Rep. John Maher had written an amendment to an animal cruelty bill that would ban the killing, serving, and eating of dogs and cats. The amendment to ban pigeon shoots was sponsored in the Senate by...

Open Carry

Even back in the days of the “wild west”  Wyatt Earp  banned guns from Dodge City.  Within hours of Georgia’s new carry everywhere law went into effect two guys drew their guns on each other.  Some small businesses and bars in Georgia have posted no guns allowed signs, their right under the law.  But this is big: Big Win For Gun Control Groups: Target Bans Guns In Its Stores Target has finally made its decision about...

Mainstreaming Radicalism

Mainstreaming Radicalism By Jason Stanford It is getting harder to tell the right-wing nut jobs who shoot law enforcement officers from the right-wing politicians running for president. America has always had its share of John Birchers hoarding guns for a coming revolution. What’s new is that the GOP has mainstreamed radicalism and turned violently anti-government rhetoric into Republican Party doctrine. This kind of thing has...

My Evergreen Column About the Latest Mass Shooting

My Evergreen Column About the Latest Mass Shooting By Tina Dupuy My condolences go out to the families of the victims at fill-in-the-blank. I know the gun-manufacturing industrial complex has dubbed the wake of a tragedy as an inappropriate time to talk about their product. So lets just eulogize the lives of the people lost to a fill-in-the-blank with his/her/their arsenal of fill-in-the-blank. They were innocent victims who...

No News Here, Just Another School Shooting, Two Dead (Updated)

Troutdale, Oregon is a windy, but otherwise unremarkable, suburb of Portland. Its exposure to the Columbia River Gorge contributes to its windy reputation. Today, there was more than the sound of wind being heard in this bedroom community of 16,000. “Boom, Boom…Boom, Boom, Boom”. That was the description of one witness. Her knees gave way and she fell to the ground as she listened to the gunfire, five shots as she...

Cliff Scheter: the NRA has created a monster

You could say with the past few months’ events, it’s High Noon for America with the American political system watching a growing number of families grieving for loved ones who are the victims or the perpetrators of gun-related crimes. Only, in this instance, unlike in the movie, you don’t have a brave sheriff walking foward with his head up high, getting ready to get out there and confront those who threaten law and...

An Assault Upon Our Civility

For awhile, it appeared the NRA leadership committed an act of sanity. But, a few hours later, the pills wore off. The story begins with a group called Open Carry Texas (OCT). This fringe group rubbed both its brain cells together, wrapped itself in what it erroneously believes is the Second Amendment, and decided it would be great theatre to bring semi-automatic carbines into family restaurants. Waving the yellow “Don’t Tread on Me”...

Arizona Republican Congressional candidate Kiehne blames Democrats for mass shootings

In yet another sign of how America’s partisanship has permeated our culture, a Republican Congressional candidate said in “99 percent” of the cases it was about Democrats pulling out their guns and shooting people: Congressional District 1 candidate Gary Kiehne made extreme comments about gun rights at a Republican primary debate Saturday. Asked how he would protect gun rights, Kiehne said he owns more guns and...

Pledge your vote to my campaign and we’ll give you a Smith & Wesson M&P15 rifle

A Republican candidate in Colorado sponsored a sweepstake, a wide net cast for more votes. The lure? The M&P 15. The Republicans and the NRA have concocted a great way to get votes for their candidates: promise a nice, powerful gun. How about an AR 15? The South Carolina Republicans’ offer is the same but slightly different. In a Republican primary, there are few constituencies more politically motivated — and therefore...
