Divide & Conquer: The Danger of Us vs. Them Thinking

It’s easy to stand together with others who are the same type of person as you.

That’s why we’re members of political parties, fans of sports teams, members of special interest groups, and proud alumni of our chosen schools.

We like to be part of the team, standing together with others who are like us.

Here’s the thing, though:

What makes a person the same “type” of human as you?

What makes them different?

Firearm Confiscation in the United States

Firearm confiscation isn’t something that only happens on foreign shores.

We’ve had more than a couple instances of firearm confiscation within our own borders, and every example follows a disturbing trend:

The US Government has used (and continues to use) gun control as a way to wield power over racial minorities and those with inconvenient political opinions.

It’s time for a history lesson.

anguish and anxiety because 1300 people died today

1,300 Americans Died Today from Preventable Causes, And You Weren’t Told

822 people were killed today, and the majority of people in this country are fighting to make the killer more acceptable in our everyday lives.

365 more people were killed by machines that anyone over 18 can buy without any kind of purchase restrictions.

150¬†more died from something we have all experienced, and we don’t even worry when it strikes our children.

And another 11 kids lost their lives, either at home or at a friend’s home, by a dangerous object that any family can own without any regulations at all.

GunGate – Katie Couric Alters VCDL Responses in “Documentary”

Katie Couric has been exposed as a fraud over the current GunGate debacle, and since Gadsden Guns owner Pat Webb was one of the parties whose answers were altered in the so-called¬†documentary, we feel it’s our duty to speak out and share the truth about what really happened.

Your Chance To Build Your Own Custom Rifle Has Come

Maybe you’ve never built your own custom rifle, but if you act quickly, you might just have a chance to change that.

You Can’t Measure That

The internet is full of shady statistics.

Even accurate statistics are used to tell half truths or lead you to false conclusions. You already know this, of course. Nobody needs to remind you that numbers are easy to manipulate.

Have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season

We are all gearing up for the holiday season. There is shopping to do, meals to prepare, and many of us will be traveling.

No doubt there is much to preoccupy us, but there is also a nagging voice in the back of our minds…what if something similar to the Paris attacks happens here?

Whether it’s a terrorist attack, natural disaster, fire, or some other catastrophe, bad things sometimes happen to good people. Those who are prepared stand a much better chance of surviving and avoiding injury or death.
