Jew Without A Gun

Tweet Because of the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, I am republishing my three-part series about the Los Angeles Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were trapped for several frightening hours. We were unarmed, helpless save for our wits. The police were conspicuously absent and the bad guys, frequently armed with […]

Second Amendment Cuisine With Pistol Packin’ Waitresses

Tweet Let’s face it, under the Community Organizer, the U.S. seems to be disintegrating. The implosion of American foreign policy in the Middle East is truly frightening. Iran is poised to spread its Islamist fascist hegemony in the vacuum created by Obama’s willful withdrawal from the world stage, while a bloody caliphate takes shape across […]

Young Israel Urges Jews Not To Walk Home Alone

Tweet In the wake of the Jew-hating shooting in Kansas, the National Council of Young Israel, an Orthodox network, is urging Jews, on the last days of Passover, not to walk home alone from synagogue. With all due respect to Young Israel, that advice is just silly and only reinforces victimhood. Do you honestly think […]

California Democrat And Anti-Gun Fanatic Charged With, Um, Gun Running

Tweet Seraphic Secret is shocked, just shocked, that a prominent anti-gun Democrat has been indicted for running guns to gangsters and Islamic terrorists. Actually, we’re not shocked at all. The Democrats are cynical opportunists. They believe they are so righteous, so morally elevated, that anything done for their radical agenda is justified. To normal and […]

Purim: The Non-Progressive Jewish Holiday

Tweet Today is the Fast of Purim which commemorates Esther’s three days of fasting in preparation for her meeting with King Ahasuerus. It’s an old ( 5th century B.C.E.) but agnonizingly familiar story: An intolerant Jew-hater named Haman hatches a plan to annihilate the Jewish people in the ancient kingdom of Persia.

Penn & Teller: Gun Control is … Expletive Deleted

Tweet Democrats insist that murdering children in the womb is legal and moral because it’s a matter of privacy. And yet Democrats also insist that it’s my responsibility to pay for this mass murder — mostly of black babies, which constitutes not just a war on babies, but a race war. So: abortion is private, […]

Murder in Gun-Free Zone… Again

Tweet You are a law-abiding citizen. You own a legally purchased firearm. When you are confronted with a sign like the one above, which is posted in the Maryland Mall, you obey the law. But the killer who is intent on murder sees that same sign and smiles, saying to himself: “Perfect place to kill.” […]

Harvard Study: No Correlation Between Gun Control And Less Violent Crime

Tweet Good grief. You know the world is shifting off its axis when a Harvard study comes to the conclusion that more guns means less crime. As a reminder of how this plays out in the real world, here’s Jew Without a Gun, Seraphic Secret’s most widely read post about the 1992 L.A. riots, in […]

Husband Shoots Two Bank Robbery Suspects Who Kidnapped Him, His Wife

Tweet It happened in Texas. A free citizen under siege by two criminals defended himself and his wife by force of arms. Will Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, or Barack Hussein Obama now lecture us about the evils of guns? Will they tell us that they could have been these two kidnap victims who fought back? […]

Gun Control Black Control

Tweet Every American should support the right to bear arms. It was free American blacks with guns—given to them by NRA Republicans—who were able to defend themselves against the Dixie Democrats and the KKK. H/T Myrna & Joe Strapp

Obama’s Philistine Gun Control

Tweet Obamacare has nothing to do with health. The redefinition of marriage to include same sex couples (why not polygamy?) has nothing to do with civil or human rights. And gun control has nothing to do with curbing violence. These social justice movements—code for Marxism—are methods whereby our civil society is undermined by the radical […]

Outgunning Gun Violence With The Goodness of Guns

Tweet The destructive and immoral policies of the radical left are enforced on American culture through a systematic abuse of language. George Orwell understood that those who control language control culture. In his brilliant novel about the nightmare of modern totalitarian regimes, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Newspeak is the language of Big Brother and its vast propaganda […]

Purim: A Non Progressive Jewish Holiday

Tweet Today the Jewish people celebrate the holiday of Purim. It’s an old and familiar story: An intolerant Jew-hater named Haman hatches a plan to annihilate the Jewish people in the ancient kingdom of Persia. That Genocide Thing. Again. Most of the Jews in this multicultural Persian kingdom have been enlightened to the point where […]

More Liberal Wisdom: “Defend Yourselves With Ball Point Pens.” Plus a Proustian Digression

Tweet As a Hollywood screenwriter, I pride myself on having a pretty vivid imagination. But I have to admit that the average liberal/Democrat/progressive manages to come up with anti-gun narratives that are, to put it mildly, beyond imagination. Yesterday, Seraphic Secret highlighted some liberal rape prevention advice from the University of Colorado Springs, which included […]

Liberal Wisdom: How To Avoid Being Raped

Tweet From NRO Guns being Bad and gun-free zones being Good, the “Department of Public Safety” at the University of Colorado Springs has some advice for its students as to how they might protect themselves from rape. Be realistic about your ability to protect yourself. Your instinct may be to scream, go ahead!  It may […]

We The Government

Tweet Obama’s SOTU in brief: Raise the minimum wage. This is a job killer. Spend more in infrastructure. Higher taxes. We’ve been here before. It was called shovel-ready jobs. Which Obama famously yucked-up as not-so-ready.

Inevitable: “We Need to Look at Handguns”

Tweet When Democrats talks about a living breathing constitution, they are really talking about rewriting the Constitution to fit their fashionable PC ideology—whatever that might be on in any particular voting cycle. And when Democrats talk about gun control, they are really talking about the banning and confiscation of all weapons purchased by law-abiding citizens. […]

Now For Some Sanity Regarding Evil And Inanimate Objects Called Guns

Tweet   Obamacare and gun control are two sides of the same coin. Both are simply means—as Rules for Radicals teaches—to a radical leftist end. Obamacare is not about health. It’s a tactic to: 1) Redistribute wealth.

High School Coach Shoots Street Thugs

Tweet In the  world according to liberals, the 70-year-old coach would be unarmed so the thugs could beat him to death, then rape and murder the female students. Actually, stories like this take place every single day in America. But the media deliberately fail to report such incidents because: 1. Guns are evil — as […]

Israel Faces Chemical Islam — The Screenplay

Tweet Wide Angle Shots: American liberal-progressives move to disarm law-abiding American citizens. Barack Obama’s vision of a degraded American military gains traction among the elites. America supports the Muslim Brotherhood, a proudly Jew-hating, America-hating, genocidal-yearning gang of Islamic theocrat fascists. Intertitle: Somebody has to take the lead in the fight against the rising tide of […]
