Getting Started

Once upon a time, Dave Campbell had to teach himself to hunt. Nowadays, though, he finds that there are plenty of introductory resources available to new hunters and shooters.

Speed Limit 70 mph? 30 Sounds Fine to Me.

There's a first time for everything, and for hunters, that includes driving with a gun. Sarah Smith Barnum practices with a Remington 870, and drives it home for the first time—and possibly contracts OCD.

Great News!

Gun owners have been taking a beating lately—both in the media as well as from some legislatures. But we've recently scored a victory. My home state of Wyoming passed a bill to decriminalize the use of suppressors while hunting wildlife. We joined 24 other states that recognize that it should not cost one his or her hearing just to be a hunter.

Where Criminals Get Their Guns

Across all media these days the information is far from accurate when it comes to the culture war waged against gun owners. The topic the other day on a Fox News program was Chicago’s “gun problem.” Of course everyone knows Chicago’s problem is crime committed by thugs who disobey the law, but that didn’t stop one woman from insisting “universal” background checks would cut down the number of guns on the city’s streets.

Dumb and Dumber

From my old stomping grounds in southern California comes this imbecilic headline: More than 10 tons of firearms melted down in Rancho Cucamonga mill. The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department—in its unassailable hoplophobic logic—made a big show of taking some 8,000 firearms to a Rancho Cucamonga smelting plant and melting them down to turn them into rebar. In a brash PR statement, they even named the event as “Project Isaiah,” a reference to the Bible and the story of melting weapons into plowshares. Wait! Doesn’t that violate the separation of church and state? Oops! My bad! That only applies to other displays of Biblical ideology that are inconvenient to secularists.

Never Forget

This morning I took a walk to clear my head and to get some exercise. I’ve been doing this for quite a few years, and I always carry a handgun on these jaunts. For the last dozen years or so I have lived in states that are relatively gun friendly. It’s easy to get used to the notion of carrying a gun. It wasn’t always so.
