Poking fun at enemies of the 2nd Amendment

At Catholic Vote someone has taken the mickey out of the enemies of the 2nd Amendment and particular out of the opponents of concealed carry weapon licenses.

Obamic Irony

After the sad election last November, the President joked around with Barbara Walters on ABC about his daughters being surrounded by guns all the time.  I am sure that, as a father, he thinks that’s a mighty fine perk.

March For Life VIDEO! Obama for the … Unborn?!?

Some people are getting it.  Liberals, even – to their eternal shame liberal catholics – are hijacking pro-life language as a way of promoting strict gun-control as if it were a pro-life issue.  What they are really trying to do is silence … Continue reading

The right to bear arms… and fill the freezer.

Even if Admiral Yamamoto didn’t actually say this, it is nevertheless true.  Se non è vero, è ben trovato:
You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.
