Such is life. Like most gun fans, we had no illusions about the attitude that the Teleprompter-Jockey-in-Chief or his faithful lapdog, Eric cockHolder, would take towards guns.
Hopefully the Gunrunner/Gunwalker/Fast&Furious scandals will torpedo these new proposals. Or annoy enough gun people to make a difference at the polls.
In any case, we will continue to pass along relevant information that we find. We freely admit that there are other sites where current news is more prevalent. But hey, we were never trying to be the Instapundit of the gun blogging universe. There’s saysuncle for that. And we all love him for it!
No, we at YGN just try to explore different facets of the wide world of guns and share what we learn with our readers.
It has been a heck of a year. This blog began quietly. Despite baseless rumors of link-trolling, we made our big splash the gun blogging universe by merely stating a position I have held for years. A position which I will continue to reiterate as long as innocent consumers get tricked into buying obsolete, unsafe guns that need to be gunsmithed to make them reliable.
And a lot has happened in a year. Some major legal victories at the state and federal level. A whole bushel of new gun designs came onto the market (such as the Chiappa Rhino and the Kel-Tec’s KSG shotgun). And one of the last states to not allow concealed carry (Wisconsin, where it sucks to be a liberal right now) just passed a law legalizing it (and as Shall-Issue!).
Now it’s just lonely Illinois left to treat its citizens like incompetent sheep. And can any of us honestly say that we expected better from a state run by the Daley Machine and the soulless lying taxocrats it creates? A state that has the Cubs befouling its air? A state that is so ignorant and backward, they think that dumping a lasagna into a crust lets them call it a “pizza”?
