The Media and the Election, 2020

(from haciendapub.com)
(from haciendapub.com) [Ed: This is a provocative essay, several weeks old and not mentioning firearms, the Second Amendment or doctors whatsoever. But it discusses a very fundamental issue today that could affect all of those and all of us. Reposted with the author's permission, from Hacienda Publishing November 15, edited for DRGO.] After 4 days of haggling over votes here and there, the liberal media have declared Joe Biden and Kamala Harris the winners of this election. Never mind...

How Democrats Would Mishandle the Second Amendment

(from threepercenternation.com)
(from threepercenternation.com) While every election has elements of divisiveness and contention, the 2020 election was beyond what we have seen in previous years. Accusations of racism flew from the left. Suspicions of voter fraud volleyed from the right. There was no end to the amount of heat. During most election cycles, guns and gun rights are hot button issues. However, the craziness surrounding the Coronavirus, Black Lives Matter, and the character of Trump placed a lot of other issues...

NYC Surgeon Doesn’t Understand How We Can’t Stop ‘Gun Violence’

(from bearingarms.com)
(from bearingarms.com) [Ed: I was going to write about this bizarre interview, but Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms (and, just before, Kat Ainsworth on TTAG, did it first and well.

Are Racial Tensions Behind Surge in Black Gun Ownership?

(from bearingarms.com)
(from bearingarms.com) [Ed: Another article reposted by permission from BearingArms.com. First published there yesterday. Condensed for DRGO.] Gun ownership is up across the board.

The more gun owners there are, the less support for gun control you tend to find. While having a gun isn’t a guarantee that someone will vote for a particul...

Dr. Michael Siegel & DRGO

(from dreamsmoke.com)
(from dreamsmoke.com) This piece is a disappointment. You’ll see. I ran across an interview in late September on RecoilTV by BJ Campbell (also a writer for OpenSourceDefense, which we share on DRGO Facebook weekly). I couldn’t identify its date, but it appeared to be recent. He talked with Michael Siegel, MD, MPH of Boston University’s School of Public Health, whom Campbell names “one of the pre-eminent gun policy researchers in the world”. Dr. Siegel is prominent enough that DRGO auth...
