One Lucky Gun Owner

The legal gun owner in Tucson was indeed extremely lucky! He left his weapon in its holster, and thereby avoided two potentially tragic mistakes. If he had started firing, what would have happened?

Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh Share Al Qaeda Recruiter of the Year Honors!

The people in this country who want to sell hate are bad enough, but the Glenn Beck radio and TV shows and Rush Limbaugh’s radio show have a global audience. What are their sponsors thinking? The title of this article is intended as satire, but it might as well be true. They are making the recruiting of our enemies easy by their rhetoric.
