  • Bloomberg’s anti-gun activists now writing ‘news’ stories for USA TODAY

    Earlier this month, I wrote a story that showed how USA Today had partnered with Bloomberg’s anti-gun propaganda factory, The Trace, for an investigative series – a collaboration which violated more than a few of the Gannett-owned newspaper’s ethical principles.

  • Column: The case for abolishing the ATF

    Editor’s note: This is an opinion column. I alone am responsible for the content. No one makes a better case for abolishing the ATF than the ATF.

  • New Jersey Attorney General misusing his office to shut down out-of-state firearm businesses

    New Jersey’s Attorney General is ordering firearm products banned in the Garden State, and then extorting thousand of dollars from out-of-state firms through lawsuits.
