Happy Thanksgiving from DRGO

(from: joesdump.com)
DRGO extends to our members, friends, and supporters the warmest wishes of a Happy Thanksgiving. In light of this year's election, we remain hopeful that the President-elect will hold fast to the doctrine that the Second Amendment has nothing to do with an inalienable right to food procurement, but protects the human right of self-defense and stands as a bulwark against government tyranny. Love him or hate him, Donald Trump took strong constitutionalist positions on the Second Amendment. ...

Active Shooter Seminar: Jihad Comes to the Inland Empire

(From: QuickSeries Publishing)
Early this month I attended a day-long seminar given by the San Bernardino (California) County Sheriff’s Medical Reserve Corps.  It was a sit-down class on dealing with active shooter attacks, and especially on one such attack with great meaning to us who live in this county.  The speakers were intimately involved in the San Bernardino terrorist attack of December 2, 2015. About 200 invitees listened as San Bernardino Police chief Jarrod Burguan spoke for nearly an hour about how a county...

A Sweep of Every House

On Independence Day weekend California Governor Jerry Brown, with the stroke of a pen, created several million brand new criminals in the once-Golden State.  Before jumping on a plane for a European vacation, he signed six of the eleven gun control bills sent to him by the one-party lynch mob that California’s legislature has become.  All six laws will go into effect next year. They create new crimes that will be committed simply because of Governor Brown’s signature, not by any actual misde...

The Ten Favorite Lies of the Gun Control Lobby

Pinocchio - Geico TV Commercial
The principles behind the gun control movement can’t survive even the most basic scrutiny, so the Controllers must constantly fall back on that oldest debating strategy: lies.

Another Failure of Peer Review at JAMA

You don’t have to be a trained statistician or criminologist to get published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) if you’re on message about guns, judging from this new anti-gun advocacy article. The editors at one of America’s leading medical journals have been clear for years on what they want readers to think about guns—private ownership of firearms should be banned. (more…)
