I Was A Gun Confiscator

Originally posted at deltabravocharlie.com on September 2, 2019. Time to tell a story…a true story. I’m going to leave out specifics regarding locations and names, but this really happened, and I was there. I was a cop, and I participated in a gun confiscation. About 20 years ago, I was on a municipal police department …

If It Saves One Life

It is one of the biggest lies gun control people tell…if not the biggest. I wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone argue in favor of the latest, most awesomest new gun law proposal, acknowledging that although it won’t actually end violent crime, it will be worth it “if it saves …

Minority Report, This Isn’t

In our recent debate over both the constitutionality and effectiveness of red flag laws, there have been a lot of comparisons to the movie Minority Report.

Why Don’t You Kids Go Outside?

That was the question many my age heard from our parents on a regular basis when we were kids…though it wasn’t really a question. Today, kids are often depicted as sedentary, smartphone and Playstation obsessed couch potatoes, and sometimes that’s true. Fortunately, there are still plenty of kids who very much want to go outside, …

Choose Well

Coloradoans recently experienced a (more or less) collective butt-clenching at the possibility that a crazy lady who wanted to shoot up a school might be running around loose in the state. In anticipation of this possibility, they responded by simply closing all the schools they thought might be at risk and keeping all the kids …
