Risk Assessment and the Modern Liberal

March 30, 2018 Proof Positive 0

  Risk assessment is in the news. Most of it phony. Let me give you an example: Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, opened in 1990. In the last 28 years, approximately 84,000 students have passed through its halls. Fourteen didn’t make it. For all you statisticians out there, that’s .0001666 [Read More]

A Primer on “Common Sense” Gun Laws

February 19, 2018 Proof Positive 0

First, let me say that I share in the loss and mourn with those who lost loved ones in that terrible Florida school shooting. Some people want to take advantage of those raw emotions to see if they can obtain some political advantage in what really ought to be a [Read More]

A Common Sense Solution to Illegal Guns

November 7, 2017 Proof Positive 0

Liberals have been clamoring for some time to have “common sense” gun laws enacted. That sounds reasonable. Then, they proceed to regale us with the need for laws that are already on the books, or impractical ideas that would never work. Never fear! I have a solution. It’s not a [Read More]

“This investigation is starting again, for political purposes. This is another investigation of Hillary Clinton, long after she’s no longer a presidential candidate, no longer the Secretary of State, apparently there’s more interest in what happened seven years ago with Secretary Clinton than there is in the (phony Trump) investigation.

Four States, Multiple Guns, One Massacre

October 7, 2017 Proof Positive 0

Several times I have heard the fact bandied about, that the Las Vegas shooter purchased guns in four states. Most recently, one talking head lamented the fact that there was not some sort of network where these different states could communicate with each other to identify these sorts of purchases.

Californians aren’t brain dead, although you’d never know it from the quality of public officials they send to Sacramento year after year.
