My old friend Dave Workman at the Second Amendment Foundation is one of the nation’s most articulate advocates for gun owners’ civil rights.  He’s also a stablemate among those of us who write regularly for GUNS magazine.

In the current issue, his commentary on the recent experience in Virginia is very much worth reading.  You can find it here


  1. Dave Workman’s article almost caused me to have hope in the upcoming November election. But I’ve had my hopes dashed too many times. Call me “Eeyore.”

  2. be a poll watcher, poll challenger, poll worker or a precinct delegate. Remember the candidates are selected by the delegates BEFORE any election arrives. Be the FIRST line of defense and choose the candidates FOR the election not just AT the election. In my state a precinct cannot have more than 2999 registered voters, it’s not a lot of votes to count if you sign up to be a poll worker.

    • 2,999???

      Jesus Christ on a pogo stick!

      In Illinois, a precinct has 300-600 voters, and even that is a lot of work. (Election judge for about 40 years, off and on.)

      BTW, “precinct delegate”?

      In Illinois, anyone can be a primary candidate by filing nominating petitions. After that, it’s up to the voters. (One does have to provide valid petitions – Obama won his first election by challenging the petitions of his two opponents, who had both “cut corners”, shall we say.)

  3. This is off-topic but I thought that the readers of this blog would be interested in this:

    It is a legal document filed by Alec Baldwin’s lawyers in connection to the Rust Movie shooting. It is crafted to allow Baldwin to slip off of any legal hooks by claiming that Halyna Hutchins was responsible for her own death. Indeed, it claims that numerous other people may also share blame. The only one who is innocent and pure as the driven snow (as this document explains it) is Alec Baldwin himself!

    Perhaps it is related to this blog after all. Baldwin is a big anti-gunner and this shows just how self-centered and narcissistic these people are as a class.

    As pointed out above, these people must and can be defeated!

    • I’m absolutely shocked that Baldwin has not blamed Donald Trump for causing that fatal shooting accident or claiming the manufacturer of the revolver made a defective product.

      Liberals are never at fault for anything bad they do. It’s always someone or something else. Biden has proclaimed that high gasoline prices are caused by Putin, who attended the KGB academy with Donaldmir Trumpolov where they became best friends, whose invasion of Ukraine did drive the cost of oil up a bit, but most of the increase happened soon after Biden occupied the White House and long before the Russian misadventure in Ukraine. Biden is now spewing his latest big lie that high gas prices are the result of American oil companies’ excessive greed and who are gouging the public, and his mouthpiece, Jen ‘Pumpkinhead’ Psaki constantly parrots those malicious falsehoods. I wouldn’t be surprised that Biden will next say high gas prices are caused by “Dog faced pony soldiers” following orders from that evil “One horse pony” Donald Trump.

  4. Hmm. I like optimism. Unfortunately my state is lead by a RINO, the legislature is majority DEM and the people are sheeple who still wear face diapers alone in their cars, or going about errands when all mask mandates have been lifted and 98% of the states adult population has been jabbed.

    If we had the means to do so, we would move to a red state, but thats a pipe dream. For the states that have a fighting chance, keep your chin up and trudge on…

    • @ Larry McClain – “Unfortunately my state is lead by a RINO, the legislature is majority DEM and the people are sheeple who still wear face diapers alone in their cars, or going about errands when all mask mandates have been lifted and 98% of the states adult population has been jabbed.”

      I John 5:17-21 (KJV)

      “All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death. We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

      And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

      And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

      Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.”

  5. We try to win converts by persuading people with logical arguments, statistics, facts, and true stories of guns being used by good citizens to defuse or disrupt criminal attacks, the way fire extinguishers are used to put out fires. We believe in education. Well, education is great most of the time, but not always, and it doesn’t work 100%. The German people in the 1930s and 1940s were well educated, but that didn’t stop them from following Hitler the monster.

    Our form of government requires that voting citizens educate themselves enough about the issues to be able to vote intelligently. When we see the citizens elect Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and Bill DiBlasio, NOT ONCE BUT TWICE, we know that many of our fellow citizens do not have a political and economic education.

    Look at university professors. Many follow the teachings of Karl Marx, which fail everywhere they are tried. The professors are maleducated or miseducated. They have knowledge without wisdom.

    There is evolution, but there is also devolution. What goes up, must come down.

    Actually, the Second Amendment has made a lot of progress since 1968. This is probably due to the fact that people, after educating themselves, come to believe that their very life may depend on having Second Amendment rights. They can see the very real benefit guns may be to themselves. Even anti-gunners want to be protected by guns, they just don’t want you and me to have guns. In that way, they are like Hitler, because he believed that, too. Guns for me, but not for thee.
