Secular Media Could Not Ignore Charleston’s Powerful Expression of Christianity This Week

Sunday, June 21st, 2015 - by David Forsmark

This year’s Juneteenth would have been the saddest in recent memory, if not for the most remarkable example of Christian witness in this generation. Dylann Storm Roof’s stated aim was to divide the nation, but despite the best efforts of Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton, he was unable to do so. Largely thanks to the victims’ […]

God, Guns, and Gays: Can We Find Something to Agree On?

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015 - by Stephen Green

Finally, a civil rights measure on which I hope everyone can agree: Last Tuesday, as the Nebraska legislature considered a bill making it easier for military spouses to carry concealed handguns, an unlikely issue arose: gay marriage. As written, the bill covered only spouses of military members whose marriages were recognized under state law—that is, […]

10 Dangerous Things Every Kid Should Do

Sunday, February 1st, 2015 - by Megan Fox

I’m not sure when it happened, but sometime between 1989 and 2015  “the village” lost its mind. It seems like every day there are reports of parents being arrested for simply letting their children play outside without hovering over them. The things parents are being arrested for are the exact same things that we were […]

Why Frozen Is Actually About Gun Control

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015 - by Karina Fabian

One thing about modern Disney princess movies is that they’re so easy to label with a message — any message. Look at Frozen. It’s about accepting yourself. It’s about letting your artistic talents flow. It’s about gay rights. It’s about overcoming oppression. It’s about gun control. Wait. Gun control? Well, gun suppression, more accurately. Nonetheless, […]

There’s a Gun in My House

Saturday, January 3rd, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

Last April, right after the horrific bombing in Boston, I wrote about how I “evolved” on guns the night of the manhunt for the two men thought to be responsible for the bombings. Here’s what I wrote last year: First, a confession: I’ve never owned a gun. I never wanted one in my home and, […]

America, F— Yeah!

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014 - by Stephen Green

Via LibertyUnyielding.com: A new Orlando-area tourist attraction has opened up to add to the long list of other theme parks. But it’s unlike anything you’ll fins at Disney World, Universal Studiosm or Sea World. It’s called Machine Gun America. It allows participants to fire live ammunition from fully automatic weapons. “Everybody has something they always […]

New Blogs: Guns and Curves

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014 - by Stephen Green

What’s not to like about Guns and Curves? First article I read there was last month’s “I Was Afraid Of Guns: At 39, I Grew Up” by looooongtime blog-reader-turned-blogger Rachel Mullen. I know it’s from September, but it’s new to me and a timeless topic: Convinced that I would accidentally shoot myself, I never touched […]

Japan Jails Man for 3D Printed Guns

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014 - by Stephen Green

With its notoriously strict gun control laws, this story should come as no surprise: Yoshitomo Imura allegedly downloaded and printed five plastic guns, two of which could fire real bullets. He was arrested last month, but the news was only revealed on Thursday. It’s believed to be the first arrest made for possession of 3D-printed […]

6 Reasons Why The Good Wife Trumps House of Cards

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014 - by David Forsmark

Here is your one and only warning: I am going to discuss some House of Cards plot points from season two. But don’t write and say I spoiled the show for you. The writers did that. While the first season of House of Cards was hardly realistic, the plotting–especially the moves of its main character, […]

Your Neighborhood Pool is More Dangerous Than a Loaded Gun

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014 - by Bonnie Ramthun

While researching information on accidental gun deaths for an upcoming article, I found something astonishing. A swimming pool is far more deadly than a loaded gun to a child. The latest statistics from the Centers for Disease Control show that 114 kids died from an accidental gun discharge in the home in 2010, the latest […]

The Blue Steel Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

Monday, February 17th, 2014 - by Michael Walsh

Every American should rejoice over last week’s stunning 2-1 Second Amendment decision in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which invalidated San Diego’s unconstitutionally restrictive infringements regarding the right to bear arms. The irony will be lost on no one, especially on the Left. Per the Los Angeles Times: In a significant victory for gun […]

Toy Story ‘Gun’ Confiscated at Airport

Thursday, February 13th, 2014 - by Walter Hudson

Amidst the vortex of impressions known as social media, some things fail to receive the attention they deserve. When I first saw the above picture of airport security confiscating a toy gun from a cowboy doll, I dismissed it as too absurd to be real. Turns out, as reported by National Review Online, it really happened: […]

5 Reasons the Left Is Hating on Lone Survivor—The Same 5 Reasons for Patriots to Love It

Sunday, January 12th, 2014 - by David Forsmark

1. The Unabashed Heroism of the American Military—Even During a Screwup Since the title gives it away, I don’t need to issue a SPOILER ALERT to say that Lone Survivor is about a mission gone wrong, in which only one SEAL makes it out alive. Hollywood action movies tend to go one of two routes—the […]

Monday, November 11th, 2013 - by Paula Bolyard

One of the more interesting shows on television is Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown on CNN. Sunday was the season finale, where host Bourdain traveled to Detroit to explore the food and culture.

How to Build the World’s Manliest Paper Towel Holder…

Thursday, October 24th, 2013 - by Builder Bob

When I start a new project I often dive in head first and make a big mess in the process. Paint splatters, sawdust, motor oil, spilled glue, calf’s blood, dismembered limbs–you know the usual workshop messes. So after I’m done digging wells and building hospitals for the underprivileged in Africa, I need a bunch of […]

Shelter-in-Place: This Generation’s Duck-and-Cover

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013 - by Paula Bolyard

ABC News reported, On the third floor, employees gathering for a staff meeting chose to barricade themselves rather than flee into the hallway where they heard gunshots. Capt. Mark Vandroff and his colleagues stacked chairs and desks in front of a door and got down on the floor. Two bullets care [sic] through the wall […]

Death Wish: Mr. Bronson’s Planet

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013 - by Ed Driscoll

Is it possible for a veteran actor to star in a motion picture that makes him a legend, assures his cinematic immortality, and ensures that while he’s still alive, he’ll always find work, and yet be completely miscast? Actually, it’s happened at least twice. In the late 1970s, Stanley Kubrick cast Jack Nicholson as Jack […]

Will Justice Outlast the Trayvon Martin Hysteria?

Thursday, July 25th, 2013 - by Walter Hudson

Outlast may be the scariest video game ever produced. IGN’s Marty Sliva passed along anecdotes last March: Before my demo, the team at Red Barrels, which is comprised of ex-Ubisoft designers who worked on Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, told me about some of the crazy things they’d seen the brave attendees of PAX […]

Why Hollywood Loves Guns

Friday, June 28th, 2013 - by Stephen Kruiser

  Sorry, Jim Carrey. Almost a year after the theater shootings in Aurora, Colo., and a half-year after the killings in Newtown, Conn., one of the things that hasn’t changed is Hollywood’s enchantment with the gun, at least when it comes to selling the big movies. As the blockbuster film season unfolds, every major studio […]
