Quote du jour

Most gun laws are passed by legislators who either cynically know, or stupidly don't know, that they will not reduce crime.


  1. Advocates of gun rights often argue that in World War II Japan was deterred from invading the U.S. mainland by a fear of American citizens with guns in their closets. They frequently quote Japan’s Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto as saying: "You cannot invade mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass."

    But this quote is unsubstantiated and almost certainly bogus, even though it has been repeated thousands of times in various Internet postings. There is no record of the commander in chief of Japan’s wartime fleet ever saying it. -

    BTW - like your header picture

  2. They certainly awakened the sleeping giant!
    Every now and then John's muse strikes him and he comes up with an original header for me to use. The lad has talent!
