Today, I’d like to talk about making this country a safer place. We are a violent people. We as Americans, we think it’s OK to hit people. We think it’s OK to invade a ring with an opponent who has done nothing to us. But we just go in and we just punch.
I am a member of the Boxing Victims Against Boxing Violence Organization of America and lately I have received e-mail after e-mail of news stories about people who have been hurt and killed by fists. We have a boxing problem in this country. Continue reading
The Atlantic published a piece by Marc Parrish titled “How Big Data Can Solve America’s Gun Problem.” I’ve never heard of Marc Parrish and this appears to be the only article he has ever written for The Atlantic. If he’s new to journalism and debate, maybe he can be excused for proposing such a silly idea. Maybe.
Either way, I’m here today to debunk the Marc Parrish “big data” gun control idea that he posited here. I have a problem with everything in this article, starting with the title and basically every sentence to the very end. Even just a cursory examination of his idea should make it obvious that it is a seriously flawed idea. Continue reading
There are many great gun control articles on the internet, so it’s quite an honor to be considered the best, even if it is just on some no-name politics blog like this one.
But I don’t think I’m the only person who feels this way, because this one article has been reposted, linked to and commented on thousands of times since being published barely a week ago.
In just 8 days, the article has already collected more than 1800 comments.
It was originally written by Larry Correia and posted on his WordPress.com blog. The article is ridiculously long but it’s a great read. It addresses every single argument FOR gun control and then debunks that argument using facts, logic, history, law and common sense. This is one of those articles that you should print a copy of and store inside a lock box. Continue reading
I see Snopes.com listed as a resource in online debates all the time. A quote from Snopes has somehow been elevated to argument-ending status. Once someone quotes a Snopes.com article, the argument has been won and the opponent has no choice but to retreat to his little troll cave, never to show his face again. Continue reading
One of the most ridiculous things to come out of liberal mouths is the argument that Obama does not support gun control. Now that we’ve had four years of Obama and all our guns haven’t been taken away, it shows that Obama is a pro-gun President!
The only kernel of truth we can dig up from this silly argument is that Obama did nothing to infringe upon gun ownership during his first term as President. But if you think this means Obama doesn’t have repeating wet dreams about pass sweeping gun control laws, you don’t know Obama. Continue reading
