National Rifle Association

The National Rifle Association and Republican presidential candidates say more guns are the answer. But “good guys” with guns don’t make the world safer for us. more

A radical pro-gun group out of Milwaukee called Wisconsin Carry is threatening to sue the city of Madison for not allowing concealed carry on its Metro buses. They'll probably lose, but I doubt that winning in court is their reason for bringing suit. more

Can we finally get over the National Rifle Association's nonsense about "law-abiding citizens?" The brothers who are all but certain to have committed the awful bombings and other mayhem in Boston did not have criminal records. But they were armed to more

Make no mistake about it. Ron Johnson doesn't represent Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate. Most days he represents some other alternative universe. Yesterday he represented the extremist National Rifle Association. more

As a politician, I went out of my way not to offend people. As a blogger, I don't mind offending powerful folks who I think are taking the world in the wrong direction, like the NRA and the Vatican. more

Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn is getting widespread praise for standing up to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) yesterday at a hearing on a bill that would ban assault weapons. Flynn deserves the support. Graham, who actually ... more

Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to reveal his gun control proposals Tuesday. Based on the reporting I've seen as of today, I'm not optimistic. But my pessimism probably isn't about what you would think. more

Since I last wrote about guns, just before Christmas, the carnage has continued. Among the dozens if not hundreds of what are accepted as run-of-the-mill gun deaths in a typical week in America, two stand out. more

The National Rifle Association has been mercifully and appropriately silent since the mass gun murders at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. They should stay that way. more

It may not surprise you to learn that I am "not" a member of the National Rifle Association. But it would surprise the NRA. During the fall election campaigns, so mercifully behind us now, I received mailing after mailing from the NRA telling me... more

No other way to say it: Paul Ryan is a right-wing extremist. His budget plan would essentially turn back 80 years of national consensus and replace Franklin Roosevelt's America with Calvin Coolidge's. He has a 100% voting record... more

The answer is not more silence and even more modest proposals. The answer is not to make nice with the radicals in the NRA. The answer, for those of us who want to end the gun carnage, is to make bold proposals that pull the debate back ... more

Ad buys worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in Southeast Wisconsin indicate the importance of the gubernatorial election to conservative groups, such as WMC. more

The gun lobby gives the seal of approval to the RoJo campaign for Senate. Now Johnson becomes immune to the Feingold attacks on gun rights. more
