Immediate Jeopardy

Monday, August 27th, 2012

The two NYPD police officers who shot the perp at the Empire State Building did the right thing. They just did not appear to do it with precision. In no way do I fault these two men for their decision to draw down on and fire on the man who had a gun pointed right […]

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

Many Police officers never have to pull their gun during their career. As a result, many are ill prepared to surgically accomplish what they need to do in the heat of a violent conflict. In many big city police departments, regular police firearms training goes no further than preparation for one’s annual department firearms qualification. […]

The Argument Against Gun Control Made Simple

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Let’s make it simple. Let’s say private ownership of guns is banned. As with prohibition in the 20′s, the firearms black market will flourish. Just look at today’s drug trade.
