Ft. Hood 2: Contact Your Representatives About H.R. 3199 post image

Yesterday, in a poignant display of the utter lack of leadership from our political representatives and military bureaucrats, Fort Hood suffered its second mass shooting in less than five years. Nidal Hasan, the Muslim terrorist responsible for killing 13 Americans and injuring more than 30 others in November 2009, is still awaiting execution. Thankfully, Fort [...]

Rifling Through SHOT For The Best In Show

According to most (but not all) folks with floor time at SHOT 2014, the new Remington R51 was the critical favorite going in and the overall winner, a "new classic," and Best in Show (though there's no such award) going out. As a die-hard carry advocate and single-stack 9mm enthusiast, I'd be compelled to agree, [...]

Inviting Mainstream Scrutiny And Legislative Action, Or How Not To Market Your Fringe Firearms Accessories post image

While this year's SHOT Show produced much to be excited about, one of the trends emerging from the industry's very public victory over gun-grabbers in the White House and around the country is that smaller, niche companies are being emboldened to push the envelope of mainstream firearms/accessories acceptance. In doing so, they are expressly challenging [...]

Minutemaniac’s Cartoon Compendium, Vol. 2

It's been a while since I posted some cartoons, so I have a fresh batch for your enjoyment (unless, of course, you follow @Patriotoons on Twitter, in which case they're already very old news). Each one takes me an average of around five hours of work to complete, but it'll only take you a minute [...]

Arguing the Anti-Gun, Part 1: Introduction

While the politics of 2013 represented the single hardest push against -- and push back for -- fundamental firearms rights in United States history, the ferocious rhetoric of anti-gunners on Capitol Hill and around the country is just heating up. And much like a typical rifle barrel, the hotter it gets, the less accurate everything [...]

Don’t Be Fooled: Richard Dreyfuss Is Only Acting Pro-Gun post image

Richard Dreyfuss isn't your typical Hollywood Liberal. Indeed, some folks think he sways more Moderate than Left, and compared to most of his Tinseltown colleagues, that might actually seem true. But it's not. Admittedly, he's been critical in the past of both parties, but his arguments against the Left are usually that Democrats don't go [...]

Minutemaniac’s Cartoon Compendium, Vol. 1

Lately, and to great personal surprise, I've been drawing a lot more than I've been writing. However, in the interest of not flooding Minutemaniac with a sea of political cartoons, I've been holding off highlighting my work here, publishing them under my Twitter accounts, @Minutemaniac and @Patriotoons, instead. In the future, I'd like to structure [...]

An Open Letter To The Leon County Commission Re: Back-Door Gun Control post image

I spend most of my time in Tallahassee, Florida, and while our little NCAA football team's been having their most newsworthy season in 14 years, there's something a lot more important going on behind the scenes at the State Capitol. Over the last two weeks, I've been having a relatively active back-and-forth with the Leon [...]

"Disaster" isn't the only thing Obamacare spells.

Cartooning Obamacare’s Insidious Gun-Grab Potential

Much like my last cartoon, this one started out with a dramatically different message. Unlike my last cartoon, that message was embarrassingly naive and completely without factual merit. I took it down after a few minutes. (You can see it here if you really want to, but I won't try to justify it, because it's [...]
