Moving up!!!

Hi there fellow conservatives! I’ve have some good new for you. I’m not going to be updating this page any more.

Wait! Good news???

Yep. Conservative Lefty here at the free WordPress site was a test to see if there would be an interest in my conservative thoughts. The result has proven good. I’ve show growth without any type of promotion or search optimization. As a result, I’ve decided to take Conservative Lefty to its own hosted site.

That’s a good thing!

So if you want to keep reading The Conservative Lefty, you need to update your browser or reader bookmarks to point to my new address:

www.ConservativeLefty.com

Same great content and thoughts but on its own site that will let me do what I want and will hopefully give it room to grow. If you do like the site so far, this would also be a good time for you to pass it along to your friends.

Hope to see you there.

Thoughts On (not) Toy Guns

IMG_0105I had been planning to write about this concerning the recent events in Ohio, and then I ran across this story:  New York attorney general to retailers: stop selling guns that look real | Fox Business.  I decided this really can’t wait.  This will finish up a week heavy with gun advocacy news.IMG_0896

Here’s a little test.  Which of these young men shooting is using the real gun?  I’ll answer that at the end of this article.

Let me say – and this may surprise some people – I agree with the Attorney General.  In today’s world, Continue reading

More ‘Tolerance’ From Stalinist Universities #tcot

More ‘Tolerance’ From Stalinist Universities – David Limbaugh.

I’ve been following this for some days now and am planning to write on it, as well as make some links available.  In the meantime, David’s commentary on this gives you a quick primer on the issue.

If you want to know why a consider people who are a part of the political correctness movement a force of evil, this will give you a good idea.

U.S. Appeals Court Expands Gun Rights #tcot #2a

First, I do want to remind folks that The Conservative Lefty is not really a gun blog.  However, it does seem there has been a lot of Second Amendment news and action of late that has an impact on conservative causes.Jefferson on guns

Take this one, for example:

U.S. Appeals Court Expands Gun Rights – WSJ.

This is really, really big.  On a national level Continue reading

Families of Newtown shooting victims sue gunmaker, seller #tcot

Families of Newtown shooting victims sue gunmaker, seller | Fox News.

Wow.  Today is turning out to be a Second Amendment day here at Conservative Lefty.  It will be interesting to see if this suit is summarily dismissed.  The basis of the argument that AR-15 platform is military weapon is patently false.  There is a military variant that is not available to the public.  That’s very different.

Also the idea that it is unsuited for civilian use is extremely weak, at best.  The AR-15 is, by its design, intended for civilian use.  In fact, the lack of select fire makes the firearm unsuited for militery use.  The military version is the M16 and the more recent M4 variant.  This gun has been made for civilian use since 1963 and has become one of the most popular rifles in the free world.

Nothing Succeeds Like Liberal Secession: Blue America Without Red America Would Be A Basket Case – Kurt Schlichter – Page full

Nothing Succeeds Like Liberal Secession: Blue America Without Red America Would Be A Basket Case – Kurt Schlichter

This is a great little story.  It will probably remind a few of you of a story called Atlas Shrugged.  🙂  The freakiest thing is that this is something that is plausible in the next ten years.

It’s also a good hint at what I think is a possible outcome of an Article V convention.  The States are overwhelmingly red majority.  If such a convention were ever held, the result would be a hard lurch to the right.  DC insiders would be largely out of the loop.  End result?  The lefties walk.

Texas considers allowing open carry of handguns #2A

Texas considers allowing open carry of handguns | Fox News.

I’m in Illinois, but I really hope this gets through there.  If they can get open carry in Texas, with it’s long history, then maybe there is hope we can beat Chicago on this.
