I'm out for a very early morning walk with a woman friend. She does not shoot, though she is starting to show interest. We're walking down a long trail in a small city park, a large sprawling area with miles of trails, a lot of trees and a small river. A jogger passes us every 10 minutes or so, Barkley's intent on sniffing out a cheeseburger someone just had to have left behind on the trail. She's quiet and then the question comes out.

The American College of Physicians is recommending solutions to what it says,"continues to be a public health crisis," and "Firearm violence continues to be a public health crisis in the United States that requires the nation's immediate attention."

Their requests include: ACP supports strengthening and enforcing state and federal laws to Read More >>
It is that time of year again, Holiday Shopping. If you are like me, it is December and you aren’t even close to being ready. Hate the Mall? Me too! What to do? Gun Show. Come on, you know you are going anyway, they are a great source for gifts! You can find something for almost anyone, young, old, pro or anti-gun.

If you have ever ridden a subway train, you know the profound sense of unease that comes from it. Unlike a bus, there is no easy way out, even if you were prepared to jump out an emergency exit. You are at the mercy of any crazy person on board. The Bay Area Rapid Transit system (BART) is the pride of Big Government sorts in the Bay Area. It cost a truly astonishing amount of money to build (about $10 billion in current dollars), and remains a very expensive Read More >>
