When the .17 HMR burst on the scene several years ago I was given the opportunity to spend some time with Ruger’s 77/17. I learned that at an appropriate range, with good wind conditions, varmints better beware. The rifle was so accurate and fun to shoot I bought it.

Why Haven’t Republicans Talked About Guns in New Hampshire?

In New Hampshire, nearly half of the state’s residents own guns. Republican voters have a notorious libertarian streak and resent government interference and control, and only 24 percent favor more strict gun laws.

This is also the first presidential cycle since Democrats fully embraced gun control as an agenda item. President Obama almost got a universal-background-check bill through the Senate and has signed over 20 executive orders that tighten federal restrictions on gun ownership. One of every four commercials aired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been about gun laws.

Republican legislators have, at long last, found a welfare program they can embrace.

No, it’s not Temporary Aid for Needy Families. Arizona is still on target to throw 2,700 kids off of the program on July 1, so that we can have the nation’s toughest one-year cap.

1. FAL Pronunciation and Grammar: Soon after the introduction of the rifle, Fabrique Nationale (FN) offered an abbreviation for the English speaking world: L.A.R (Light Automatic Rifle). However, this abbreviation never caught on, and instead we commonly pronounce the model by its French language abbreviation F-A-L. In countries where the rifle was adopted, the letters FAL quickly became an acronym and is pronounced in one word instead of an abbreviation.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government that is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. — JAMES MADISON
