Independence Day

It’s the 4th of July, Independence Day. Aside from being one of the few days of the year where I have an excuse to grill burgers and dogs over charcoal, Independence Day celebrates the birth of our nation. It celebrates our declaration of independence from the tyrannical rule of King George III of England. But […]

Who Is David Chipman and Why Should You Care?

David Chipman is the Biden administration’s pick to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).

Gun Laws: The Institutional Racism You’ve Heard About

One of the many new changes that the year 2020 brought was the mainstream use of the term “Institutional Racism.”  The phrase is heated, controversial, and its acceptance is a partisan divide (like everything these days).  It is the burden of each reader to decide if institutional racism exists, but it is clear that there […]
