Terror Attack by Gun A radical Muslim pulls out a gun and starts shooting. He murdered 13 American soldiers. These are trained soldiers, not just a random group of shoppers, students or other civilians. They should know how to respond to emergencies, and how to render first aid to the injured. This shows how venerable Americans are to random terrorist gun attacks. With hundreds of millions of guns in the United States no government could ever hope to confiscate them all, nor can the really hope to keep them out of any but the smallest areas, for short periods of time. Many times now gun free zones have been violated by gun wielding criminals. It would be very simple for Muslim extremist terrorists to enter the country, or to live here already, and then get a gun and start shooting. The police arrived very quickly when the shooting started on the military base. A large shopping mall, college campus, or large "gun free" work site could be without police protection for ten or even twenty minutes in an emergency. A lone gunman could kill dozens of helpless people in that time. The only way to prevent that is to adapt the strategy used by the Israelis, and issue concealed weapons permits to anyone who can be trusted with a gun; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Free Parking

State lawmakers take aim at free parking Today on the radio news I heard that our state will run out of money by April 2010. That's even with the largest tax increase of any state in the nation last year. That's even with the some of the highest state income taxes, sales taxes, gasoline taxes, property taxes compared to other states. Naturally the state legislature is very worried so they have determined that they must try and force people to stop using their cars by making as many people as possible pay for their parking. They want as many entities in the state to start charging for parking. They are so concerned about the fraudulent global warming problem that they are more worried about too many cars than they are about the economic collapse of their state. Any member of the legislature who votes for this bill should be voted out at the next election. The automobile has been the single greatest producer of freedom in the US since the printing press. It has enabled people to travel whenever they want, wherever they want, to do what they want. It allows people to vote with their feet and live in one place and work in another. Taking way free parking is foolish, repressive and just another example of the anti-business and anti-freedom policies that have gotten California into trouble in the first place; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Teenage Girl With Long Lashes

Saudi Court Sentences Teen Girl to Prison, Flogging - Sphere News The representatives of the Religion of Peace have sentenced a teenage girl to flogging. She is somewhere between 13 and twenty years old, with the Saudi legal system it is difficult to determine the truth of her age. The crime she committed was having a cell phone at school. I understand how disruptive a cell phone at school can be, but suspension for a day would probably be a reasonable and effective punishment for bringing one to the classroom. On the other hand, at times like the Columbine massacre, teenagers having cell phones was a very helpful thing to have around. Ninety lashes for a teenager, even an adult man, could be enough to be fatal. This is the type of punishments that Radical Muslims want to require of people all over the world. When they take over a nation this is the type of legal system they want to introduce. This is the nature of the enemy we are fighting; and Saudi Arabia is an ally! We must not lose this war, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Puffin NASA is working on a one man stealth plane. The US needs new flight technology. Decades ago, a combination of irresponsible lawsuits and luxury taxes killed the domestic small aircraft industry. This caused the US to lag in new small aircraft technology. The US invented powered aircraft with the Wright Brothers. There is no excuse for this problem to continue. President Obama wants to increase jobs. One method would be to repeal the luxury tax. Let people spend money on yachts and small aircraft. Thousands of jobs would be created by this action with the stroke of a pen. Transportation of people and things is a huge economic mover. In the beginning of the Republic we built canals. Later, we built railroads, and then airports. All of these things drive the economy of nations. Small, personal aircraft could free up crowed cities, traffic jams, and create millions of jobs; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Blackwater The government is going to appeal a ruling favorable to Blackwater guards. These guards were ambushed in Iraq and returned fire, killing several people as a result. Some have claimed there was no ambush and others have said that there was an ambush. This is an example of LawFare. The enemy is using our laws against us in this case. In war, mistakes happen, people do stupid things and often people do everything right and something bad still happens. The enemy is using this as a propaganda tool against the US and our Allies. The laws of the USA are being used against our forces to make us look bad in the public square. In a war, a nation has to fight to win. That means we cannot let our enemies use our own legal system against us. If there is a legitimate crime then the US should take action, but when there is doubt, we should not allow our enemies to take advantage of us and destroy our forces as sure as if they were killed; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Western Values, Enemy Weapons "Wherever the Mohammedans have had complete sway, wherever the Christians have been unable to resist them by the sword, Christianity has ultimately disappeared. From the hammer of Charles Martel to the sword of Sobieski, Christianity owed its safety in Europe to the fact that it was able to show that it could, and would, fight as well as the Mohammedan aggressor." Teddy Roosevelt (1858 -1919) Twenty-sixth President of the United States The fight against Islamist extremists has been going on since the beginning of Islam. Islam has always been spread by the sword and so it has to be fought by the sword. The Christian nations of Western Europe have allowed themselves to be infiltrated by Islamic radicals and so have weakened their powers to resist an attack. With millions of radical Muslims living in France, it is difficult for France to take action without having to worry about the Muslim street, right there in the middle of Paris. The West values diversity and freedom of religion. How do you reconcile this with an enemy who seeks to destroy Western values by using Western values? That's a question from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Welcome Home Marines A major milestone has been reached in the War in Iraq. The US Marines are pulling out and turning over their duties to the US Army and Iraqi forces. This is a good thing for many reasons. The US Marines are our assault troops. They never should be entangled in long conflicts. The role of the Marines is to attack, win a beachhead and then pull out and leave the rest to the Army. With places like North Korea and Iran making noises that could mean war, the US Marines need to be ready to fight on a short notice if need be. The US Marines have unique abilities that no other force has available. The US Marines have force projection role, the Osprey, and their helicopters and Harriers are unique to them. The War Against Islamic Extremists is going well in Iraq. The main stream media, naturally, has generally failed to cover this story. The news is that the Bush Administration with their surge tactic broke the back of the enemy in Iraq. The Army will still be there for years, probably decades, just like we are still in Germany and South Korea; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Center is Left and Right is Hysterical A man committed suicide and tried to make it look like a murder. The main stream media immediately speculated that it may have been the result of right wing media inciting people against the government. Then the investigation showed the poor man had killed himself. Naturally, the main stream media did not apologize, nor did they worry about the reputations of right wing media that may have been tainted by their speculation. I am all for media that pushes a political agenda. This very blog is called the Hysterical Right Wing because I favor a right wing political agenda. I make no claim to be non-partisan nor do I claim to be objective. Most of the so called main stream media claims to be objective journalists. The claim they don't push an agenda, and yet they do this all the time. What makes this a problem is that they push a left of center political agenda and pretend they are centrists and objective. That's not how it looks from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Red Spies Google has been helping fight the danger of Communist Chinese espionage. Too many in America forget that the Communist Chinese are dangerous, evil people who are still in competition with the United States. The Communist Chinese were trying to spy on American companies and American government. While President Obama hangs a Chairman Mao Christmas bulb on the White House Christmas Tree, his followers were trying to steal American secrets. There are two methods for dealing with totalitarian Communist governments. For those who are not interested in reform, they should be isolated like Cuba, and North Korea. Communist China can be changed if we engage them, but we need to be careful. They are not our friends. They are not our allies. They are not our partners. Communist China was an enemy until very recently and they are still a fierce competitor. They have the potential to be an enemy again if they see it will be to their advantage. They need to be put on notice that spying on us is not acceptable; that's what the SGT Says.

Obama To Senate: Don't Jam Health Care Through The Weekly Standard The President has told the Senate not to push health care through before the new Republican Senator can be seated. The President and his media partners are trying to claim that the victory of the Republican victory was not really a Republican victory. They are trying to frame this as a further repudiation of the policies of the George Bush administration. The desire for hope and change is so overwhelming that the people will even vote for a Republican to fill a seat that had previously been held by a Democrat. The spin I see is that people are show shocked and outraged that our President has been both so liberal and incompetent that they want something else and will even settle for Republicans to get change. The President has disappointed his liberal followers by not ending the war immediately and by not getting health care, gun confiscation, and other liberal ideas pushed into law. Centrists are worried that he has taken over banking and the car industries and despite trillions of dollars of spending we still have a low stock market, high unemployment, and no prospects of things getting better. This is a political opportunity for the Republicans, but they must have a program; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

U.S. Military Weapons Inscribed With Secret 'Jesus' Bible Codes - ABC News Trijicon puts a small Biblical reference on the serial numbers of it's products. They are simple initials and numbers. It requires a Bible to look them up, unless you already know the reference. Trijicon has always been doing this. Now there are those who are concerned that it violates the military policy against proselytism in our War Against Islamic Terrorists. There is so much wrong with this. The company should be able to put whatever serial number they want on their products, if that includes a Bible reference, that is their choice. Having a tiny serial number Bible code on a weapon sight that will only be seen by the US soldiers is hardly proselytizing. The Sword of the Lord is the greatest weapon we have in our arsenal in the fight against the evil of Islamic extremism. Our soldiers should not have their freedom of religion restricted just because they are on active duty. The restriction against proselytism should only apply when they are on duty, if at all. They should be able to do whatever they want on their free time; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Freedom of Religion In America we have a Bill of Rights that enumerates many of the rights we enjoy as free American citizens. This document is essential to the liberties we Americans enjoy. One of the liberties is the Freedom of Religion. We are able to practice and believe whatever religion we choose. At the time virtually every American was Christian, Jewish or an American Indian pagan. The ability to practice this freedom did not mean that religion did not have to be hidden. Religion did not have to be preached indoors, among consenting adults. People were free to speak of their religion at school. They could speak about religion at work. They could mention their religion while shopping. They could, as the taxpayers, use what they paid for to further their religious beliefs. Hold a church meeting in a public school, display a Nativity Scene in the public square, or give a speech that mentions religion at a public gathering. Now the courts have told us that it is freedom from religion. They tell us that children cannot sing hymns in school, despite it being legal for the previous 500 years. They tells us a pastor cannot invoke the name of Jesus at a school football game. They tell us we have to worship the new state approved religion of secular humanism; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Lawfare Lawfare. It is a new type of warfare. The Muslim Extremists who wage the War on Terror against the West have begun using this type of warfare. They know that the nuclear weapons the West has can destroy the cities and nations of Islam and there is nothing they can do about it. They know that our conventional might would permit the Western nations to conquer every Muslim nation. They Muslim extremists want to destroy the West and while they don't mind dying as individuals, they don't want all Muslims to die. They know this type of asymmetrical power situation requires them to use a different strategy to destroy the West. They are doing it from within. They are using our own strengths against us. Just like martial arts practitioners use the strength of a large opponent against himself, the Muslim extremists are using our strength against us; to fight us in the War on Terror. They lie, and cheat and make false charges to get us to turn our own laws against ourselves. A terrorist is captured, then he says he was tortured. So we investigate our own people, taking them out of combat as effectively as if they were wounded. A terrorist is arrest, and he claims he is not a terrorist, he is a "criminal" and entitled to all the rights of an accused criminal. Proof beyond a reasonable doubt, a right to remain silent and multi-million dollar trial and appeals. Our own anti-establishment leftists, as always the useful idiots, line up to demand we treat non-citizens will all the rights of citizens. They demand we treat unlawful combatants as lawful combatants, they demand that we don't fight a war, but rather we give the enemy every advantage. Lawfare, a new and dangerous type of warfare, that's what the SGT Says.

New Faces There are many new, young, exciting politicians out there on the horizon who are espousing a conservative agenda. This has very long term problems in store for the Democratic Party. The rise of minority candidates who are conservative will help to lure minority Americans away from the Democratic Party. It will be difficult to continue the lie that the Republicans are not out to help minority Americans. Freedom of religion, gun rights, a respect for life, and low taxes are not racial issues. They are issues that are important for everyone. The vast majority of large American cities are run by Democratic politicians. The vast majority of large American cities have crime, high taxes, low growth and in many cases are even dying. The residents of those cities have been poorly served by the Democratic Party. Perhaps a new face on the traditional values will help to explain them to people who otherwise may not listen; that's the hope for the future and the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Pearl Harbor The enemy may be watching the video that is sent by the remote sensors and robots used by our military. It is important that the enemy not be able to see this information. If we can react to this real time data, there is no reason to think that the enemy can't also react to it. Often just prior to an attack a few minutes, even a few seconds of warning can be important. The military needs to keep their encryption secrets secret, but they need to distribute the data to enough people for the data to be useful in a timely manner. The military may be able to use a civilain, unclassified encryption technique to keep the data secure, but not require extensive security clearances to use the data. Military history is full of instances where the data collected did not get to those who needed it in a timely manner. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is the most famous example but not the only one. The military needs to find a solution to this problem and right away, that is the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Pruning Hooks The Christian has a right to self defense, indeed he has a duty to defend himself. When a strong man armed keeps his house there is peace. The Christian has a duty to defend those who are in his care. The Christian cannot depend only on the telephone and a quick police response. Man is made in the image of God and it is unrighteous to destroy that image without good reason. The Bible tells us thou shall do no murder, but defense of one's self or of those in your house is not murder, it is a justifiable homicide. In our society, the firearm is the best tool for personal defense. Just as our society provides for freedom of religion, it provides for the use of firearms for self and collective defense. Just as all good American go to church to worship the God of our Creator, all good American can defend themselves, their families and their communities with the use of firearms; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing..

Korean Peace North Korea wants peace talks, an end to the war and and end to sanctions against them. Of course they do, they want to make this happen for several reasons. If the war is over, then foreign troops will leave the Korean Peninsula, that means primarily that US troops will leave South Korea. They want an end to the war, because then the South Koreans will likely reduce their military spending and reduce the size and ability of their military. Over the long term, this will move the balance of power toward the North Korean Army. The Communists take the long view and if they have to wait five or ten years to regain military pre-eminence then they are willing to do that. The North Koreans want an end to sanctions. Their people are starving due to the incompetence of the Communist government. Just like all the other Communist governments in the world have been. If the North Koreans can get rid of the American troops, reduce South Korean military spending and get food aid and credit from other nations, then naturally they want peace. They want peace because they are losing the war; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Army CCW Army bases are, ironically, gun free zones. So you can have a nuclear missile, but not a handgun, because you might hurt someone. Drive a tank, but don't carry a Derringer. Leave that six gun at home cowboy, you have to go to the range and fire 8 inch howitzers. It makes no sense. When I was in the Army, I had a top secret clearance. They did a background check all the way back to my childhood, but I could not have a gun on the base. At the height of the Cold War, when we worried that Soviet Paratroopers could shop up at any moment, and you were not allowed to have a pistol in your pocket. Now, during the War on Islamic Terrorists we know that they have means and the desire to make even small attacks against our forces. Soldiers should be permitted to carry firearms on base. I would make the initial training a bit longer, perhaps two or three days, and give each service member training in carrying a concealed weapon in a civilian environment. Then, I would issue them a concealed weapons permit; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

God and Judgement The Lord God visits his judgement on those who mock him. God will not be mocked. When the 9/11 attacks happened some mentioned this and were attacked by the secularists for thinking that God would allow a disaster of this magnitude to happen to the USA. Nations that turn from God are eventually destroyed. Since the early 1970's the US has permitted abortion on demand. Should be be surprised if God lifts his protection from us if we permit the continual murder of the most vulnerable among us? The safest place in any society should be in the womb of your mother. In the USA millions of children have been the victims of abortion. The abortion rights people try and say it is just tissue, no different from trimming your fingernails, it is not a separate human. That is simply a lie to permit them to make money on their murder of the innocent; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Swords or Words?

Fouad Ajami: The Arabs Have Stopped Applauding Obama - President Obama has traveled all over the Islamic world and as a result we are at war in Iraq, at war in Afghanistan, and are threatened by a potentially nuclear weapon armed Iran and have terrorists trying to blow up our planes. I guess the job seems a bit harder once you are in office, compared to when you are on the campaign trail. Since the beginning of Islam, it has had major factions at war with the West and Christendom. The election of President Obama was not going to change that. The Hindus of India know full well how dangerous Islam is, they are the victims of terrorist attacks by radical Muslims nearly every day. Islam has always been spread by the sword and a few bows to a king or two will not stop that. We should be friends with those Muslims who will accept Western values of tolerance and freedom and we can ally ourselves with those who have a common interest with us, particularly if they are moving in a more open direction. Turkey has tried to be more Western and Saudi Arabia has made some progress in the last fifty years, and so we should continue to work with and support those nations. Others, that are more interested in spreading the Word of Allah by violence and repression, like Iran, remain our terrible enemies, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Freedom Of Religion, Not From Religion The US was founded on Christian and Jewish principles. We did not want the Federal government to establish a national religion, as had been done in England with the Church of England. Each of the states at the time did have official religions that they supported. The courts have almost singlehandedly forced the US to give up many Christian freedoms. When I was a little kid, I remember we prayed in school. We sang Christmas carols at Christmas time. I was not a Christian at the time, but I did not care that we were doing this, it was fun singing songs together. All over America, workers are having to take down copies of the Ten Commandments that have been posted in schools, courts and government buildings. The Supreme Court has said they can't post this document anymore. The Supreme Court itself displays the Ten Commandments! The corruption and hypocrisy of our Supreme Court is appalling, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Low Crime Rates

Heather Mac Donald: A Crime Theory Demolished - A study has shown that crime did not increase when the economy went bad. Crime has generally been going down. Liberals don't understand that poverty does not cause crime. Poor morals cause criminal behavior. It's just that simple. In the Great Depression the US was in the worst economic shape in the history of our Republic. Crime was very low then. We still had a very moral nation and our people came together to try and work out our problems. Crime is also and activity of young men. Sixty year old men don't snatch purses. Seventy year old women don't commit rape. Our population is aging, so crime is going down. This was predicted years ago. Crime is committed by young men and many of those young men are sitting in prisons, with longer prison sentences, these dangerous and immoral criminals will be unable to commit crimes. Three strikes laws are fairly new and are having the desired long term effect, driving crime down by keeping criminals locked up. Liberal judges hate these laws because they take away their power and they try and overturn them at every opportunity, but the people know they work. Liberal politicians don't like these laws because they don't want to spend money on prisons, but keeping these criminals in prison helps keep our crime rates low and the protection of the public is one of the most important duties of government; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Vote For Prisoners The Ninth Circuit of Appeals wants to give voter rights to criminals in prison! They claim there is so much racial discrimination in who goes to prison that it has an unfair effect on how many minorities get to vote. The cure is worse than the disease. If there are people in prison who did not commit the crimes they were convicted of doing, then they should be freed. If the court can't show individuals who are innocent then they have no business giving rights to criminals who are still in prison. Once someone is convicted of a felony crime they should lose their right to vote. If it was a very bad felony, they should lose that right even after they are released from prison. There is no societal benefit to giving criminals the right to vote, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Islam in Sweden Even Sweden is in the grip of Islam. A place so far removed from the Middle East that few would suspect the influence Islam is having in Sweden. The West has become weak. We have become afraid. We care too much about what other people think and too much about how things look than what is really important. People are afraid to speak out against our enemies. In the Second World War Hollywood movies were churned out supporting the war effort. Now Hollywood speaks out constantly against the West and against our soldiers. At least three major motion pictures have been made depicting US soldiers as criminals or insane or dysfunctional. There is even a major motion picture now that uses science fiction as a way to criticize the War in Iraq. The West needs to return to it's Christian roots. The West needs to be proud of it's values and must be willing to fight for them both at home and abroad. Freedom is not license. Not anything goes. The West grew to dominate the world by holding true to our Christian values, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Not The Mob

An Islamic extremist terrorist attacks a plane full of Americans and the President tells us the suspect has been captured. The US will provide him with full rights and he will be given a civilian trial. This is exactly where the US War on Muslim Extremists has gone wrong. This is not a criminal enterprise like the Mob or a street gang. They are not seeking to sell drugs or numbers rackets. These people are at war with the United States and our allies. If we treat them like common street criminals, then we will lose the war. Illegal enemy combatants need to be interrogated using the most effective methods, harvested for all the intelligence they can give us and then given a military trial. Once they have been convicted of the murder or attempted murder of innocent civilians they should be executed. As we have seen time and time again in the past if they are released there is a good chance they will continue to fight against us. If they are left in prison they will make charges against us and continue the propaganda war against us. This is not a law enforcement problem, it's a war; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Somali pirates seize two ships - Somali pirates have seized two ships in international waters. They will take them back to port, terrorize the crews, maybe even kill some crew members, and hold the ships for ransom. The money will be used to further their war on legitimate shipping. When this happens Western navies should scramble aircraft and prevent these ships from making port. They could drop commandos from helicopters and take the ships back, even at the risk of the lives of the crews. The crews are already captured, they may never come home, better to get it over quick. If one of these ships does make it back to port, ransom should not be paid, rather expeditionary forces should take them back by force. The ship owners could even hire mercenaries to get their ships back, if the Western nations are too timid to do the job. The government does not like mercenaries because it makes them look bad when private industry does what they can't or won't do for themselves. A couple million dollars for mercenaries is much cheaper than a ransom; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Legion (2010) Synopsis and Summary - Moviefone How interesting that Hollywood has provided us an important new movie about heresy. Just when the Da Vinci Code movies were dying down, they have jumped up and given us another new movie assaulting traditional Christian beliefs. Lets have a group of misfits and and archangel fight God. Oh, wait, that was done before, just before Lucifer was sent to hell. Hollywood is giving us a movie that just in this little summary manages to include several heresies to insult both Christians and Jews. I would be happy if Hollywood would simply provide some real movies about Islam. Movies that accurately depict the horrors of living in nations under Sharia law. Rather, we get movies that attack traditional Christian and Jewish belief. In the Bible, God tells us he will plan the rainbow as a symbol that he will never destroy humanity again. Now this movie tells us otherwise. Another opportunity for Hollywood to miss my movie going dollar, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Asymmetrical Warfare The War Against Muslim Extremists is not really about guns and bombs. It is a war of cultures. It is a war of ideas. It is a war of the good of Christendom and the pluralism permitted by Western cultures and the evil of extreme Islam which seeks to convert of destroy all others. In this war the enemy will try anything to fight the overwhelming power of the United States and our Allies. The US has the most powerful military in the world and it is allied with other powerful nations. Our enemies are fighting a type of asymmetrical warfare where the power of the military force of the US is only a small part of the war. The enemy will attack us in ways that our strict military force cannot fight against. They will claim torture whenever they are captured so that they can cause us to suspect, and arrest our own soldiers. They will infiltrate our military and try to convert and subvert our individual soldiers. Our enemies are using our own laws and timidity against us; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

SEALS,3566,576646,00.html A group of US Navy SEALS captured an important enemy. During their time with the enemy he suffered a minor facial injury. He claims that one of the SEALS punched him in the face for no reason. This enemy had coordinated the death of several Americans and afterwards their naked bodies were dragged through the streets on television. Now Navy is charging three of the SEALS in improper conduct and the remainder of the team is out of combat while the case is judged. This terrorist has rendered this entire unit combat ineffective by making a charge that he was "tortured." Muslim extremists train their men to claim torture every time they are captured. They know that our justice system is too blind, it can't function fast enough nor can it weed out minor offenses that are best handled at the unit level. Our enemies think nothing of sawing off the head of captives, and think nothing about blowing up a market place filled with innocent women and children. They are taking advantage of our desire for the rule of law by making a legal crisis out of every minor infraction. In the heat of deadly combat not every soldier will follow every rule exactly, that does not mean we need to make a federal case out of it; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gun Sales Up Civilian guns sales are up, they are in fact, very high. There are several reasons for this surge in firearms sales. With the poor performance of the economy some people are worried that crime may increase. Some even worry that that the economy may collapse and lead to chaos. This fear persists despite crime being down in most of the United States. Gun sales are up, and crime is down. Other people worry that the Obama Administration and the Democrat controlled Congress may enact restrictive gun control. Chicago is noted as having both some of the strictest gun control and some of the highest murder and crime rates. Those people want to get guns to protect themselves and their families before such restrictive gun controls at the Federal level. Some states are even passing laws to allow them to avoid Federal gun control laws based on the instate commerce clause. Most states have passed laws that are allowing their citizens to carry concealed weapons. As a result, people want to buy new guns that are suitable for concealed carry. Many single women are learning that they can be safer carrying a gun when they are out in public. Some studies have shown that Americans use firearms in lawful self defense several million times a year. When seconds count, the police are only minutes away, having a gun handy can keep you alive until they arrive; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
