Florida GOA director continues to show his legislative ignorance

Luis Valdes, the Florida state director for Gun Owners of America, should have taken a few more civics classes – something the GOA leadership is learning for themselves, the hard way.

USA TODAY factchecks the factchecker we factchecked

The USA TODAY factchecker we profiled Tuesday, Daniel Funke, might want to find another line of work. He seems to have a problem getting his facts right. In our story titled “Factchecking the media’s antigun factcheckers,” we showed how Funke only focuses on conservatives and conservative issues. His stories have targeted gun owners, MyPillow

Florida GOA director bashes pro-gun state lawmaker

The Florida legislature has a pest-control problem – it’s infested with RINOs. Republicans have controlled the state House, Senate and Governor’s mansion for years, but Floridians still don’t have constitutional carry.

Most have never even touched a weapon, yet they wade into gun and Second Amendment issues as though they’re the reincarnation of Jeff Cooper or Bill Jordan. But unlike these distinguished gentlemen, the

Did you know your neighbors hate you?

Most Americans now use some form of social media in their daily lives and for the most part, use it wisely. Or do they? For the record, I am biased against social media in all forms and make no bones about it. Social media: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and too many local variations such as

Since a new state law was passed in 2015, Wichita Police have made $196,000 by selling recovered firearms instead of destroying them as most police departments do, according to the Associated Press.
