Review: ‘Freedom Baby ABC’, by ‘Jane Sharpe’

Freedom Baby ABC is a cute little alphabet learner for children just starting to grasp letters. There are hundreds of these out there, and the twist here is that every letter is illustrated by a firearm-related item or concept. DRGO has reviewed and recommended a number of young people’s books that responsibly introduce terminology and […]

Support NY S3196 Legalizing Suppressors

[Ed: A slightly different version of this piece was just published in SCOPE-NY’s March-April 2021 Firing Line newsletter. DRGO strongly favors the hearing health benefits of using suppressors on firearms. The points discussed describe our position on laws everywhere that affect suppressor availability to shooters.] Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership has been working for more […]

The Bill for Our Rights

[Ed: We have published this piece annually since 2015 for Bill of Rights Day each December 15. The  Bill’s Second Amendment is the reason for our being, in more ways than one.] Today we all should be jubilantly celebrating the 229th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, the original 10 amendments to the […]

Dr. Michael Siegel & DRGO

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 […]

Review: ‘Guns and Control’ by Guy Smith

Guy Smith is a man after my own heart. He’s curious, doesn’t accept pronouncements of truth by authority, and digs deeper in order to prove it himself. His entry into the topsy-turvy world of contrafactual “research” by, shall we say, skeptics about guns parallels my own. We both moved from accepting popular disapproval of firearms […]

More Health Care Professionals Buying Guns

Cam Edwards brought to my attention Stephen Gutowski’s October 27 article in the Washington Free Beacon, “Health Care Workers Help Drive Gun Surge, New Study Says”. We talked about it yesterday on his show on Bearing Arms — Cam & Co, which I always enjoy. Unfortunately, my side of the audio is nearly incomprehensible, so […]

Believe It or Not, Gun Laws Change Nothing

We routinely castigate lousy research by prejudiced academics who make their careers publishing poorly designed, illogically interpreted studies claiming that guns are bad and that widely restricting their ownership will solve society’s problems. We get tired of it, like anyone would covering the same fake news over and over. So it is really refreshing to […]
