‘Git-R-Done’: Trump opens 1.4 million federal acres to hunters, anglers


President Trump isn’t much of an outdoorsman, aside from golf.

But maybe more than any president since Teddy Roosevelt, he understands the importance of others getting outside to boat, hunt, fish, shoot, and hike and their demands for access to federal lands and waterways.

“He’s basically said, ‘Git-R-Done,” said Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, who is spearheading the opening of 1.4 million acres and elimination of 7,500 regulations limiting access.

“The president fundamentally gets that hunters and anglers are the true conservationists in our society…”


This proposal will open 1.4 million more acres to hunting and fishing at 74 national wildlife refuges and 15 national fish hatcheries and is a welcome development for all hunters, fishermen (and women!), outdoors lovers and conservationists.

Second Amendment Does Not Say You’re ‘Entitled’ to Own a Gun



Former Vice President Joe Biden admitted that the “Second Amendment exists” but stressed during his speech in New Hampshire on Tuesday that it does not say everyone is “entitled” to own a gun.

We at Tom’s Outpost prefer not to get too enmeshed in politics, but sometimes a political figure makes such an outrageous statement that it is akin to receiving a verbal 2 x 4 up against one’s head. Such is the case with former Vice President, and now Presidential candidate, Joe Biden’s recent revelation that the “Second Amendment exists”, but...but…nowhere in the Constitution does it say that one is “entitled” to own a firearm. Hmmm…

This begs the question as to what constitutes an “entitlement” to own a firearm and just who is going to be so kind as to define it for us plebians (which in today’s vernacular roughly translates into “deplorables”).

Best keep an eye on these squirrelly critters/politicians.

Il Pleure dans mon Coeur


We at Toms Outpost are saddened for the loss of nine centuries of culture and history. Notre Dame has been an architectural masterpiece, and an international treasure. This magnificent cathedral has throughout the years rightfully been called the soul of Paris.

This tragedy is a loss for all Parisians, for all French, for all Catholics and for all citizens of the world.

An American ex-pat was heard to lament, “these are the things that you think are going to be eternal, but of course, nothing is.”

Just the same, as Paul Verlaine, one of the most popular French poets, once wrote, Paul Verlaine Paul Verlaine Paul Verlaine “Il pleure dans mon coeur…”… It is raining in my heart.


Several Sheriffs in Washington State Refuse to Enforce New Gun-Law Measure


Some sheriffs in several conservative Washington counties have refused to enforce the state’s sweeping restrictions on semi-automatic rifles until the courts decide whether they are constitutional.

The November measure raised the minimum age for buying semi-automatic from 18 to 21, requires buyers…added expanded background checks and gun storage requirements


“I swore an oath to defend our citizens and their constitutionally protected rights,” Grant County Sheriff Tom Jones told the Associated Press. “I do not believe the popular vote overrules that.”


Hats off to Sheriff Tom Jones and the sheriffs in 11 other Washington State counties. Hats off, too, to the NRA and the Second Amendment Foundation who jointly filed a lawsuit in US District Court in Seattle arguing the measure violates the Second and 14th Amendments of the Constitution and gun sellers’ rights under the Commerce Clause. They deserve our support.

New Zealand Attack Reminds Us Being Armed Is Part of Being Prepared

New Zealand Attack Reminds Us Being Armed Is Part of Being Prepared

By Awr Hawkins, columnist for Breitbart News March 16, 2019

Original Article

While there are myriad lessons that can be drawn from the heinous attack in Christchurch, the one at the forefront of my mind is that being armed is part of being prepared…as our security is ultimately in our own hands.

Another well-argued piece by Awr Hawkins. Tom thoroughly supports our men and women in blue - and those good men and women in uniform of any color. But, the police can’t be everywhere at a moment’s notice. As Hawkins reminds us, our security is ultimately in our own hands. You have heard this before, but it bears repeating that, “When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.”
