First, the purpose of this website

This website is my soapbox, from where I express my thoughts on guns, politics, and other matters.  You are free to agree or disagree, and to leave comments on the articles or in the discussion forum, as I value polite and civil debate.  What I won’t allow are personal attacks and hyperbole.  Above all, remember that I run (and fund) this website for my own enjoyment of political speech, firearms, and a desire to advance gun rights for self defense.  That means that unlike KMart, I’m not susceptible to coercion by anti gun groups or anti gun individuals.
