R.I.P. William Colvard

I met William Colvard at the Atlanta MAGA meetup back in 2017. Bill was a Trump supporter and a Christian conservative. He was also my friend.

Over the years Bill and I would talk regularly by phone and DM. When I didn’t hear from him for a week or so I tried to find out what the situation was.

I am sad to report that he passed away May 12, 2020.

Bill was a very private guy so people should not be stunned that his passing came as a surprise.

I respected his privacy and his confidences, as he did mine. He was that kind of man – quiet and decent.

Suffice it to say, he was one of those people that reminded me that some people can be good and I will miss him terribly. What better way to remember him than with a passage from the New Testament:

So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; and it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.

1 Corinthians 15:42-44

Perpetual Lockdown Batters Remnants of New York City’s Long-Lived Gun Culture

Some of America’s most pro-gun people ironically inhabit some of its most anti-gun locales. Like plants that can survive the harshest desert climates, they are among the hardiest of their kind. And for those in the know, they are as much a part of the Second Amendment landscape as cacti are to the desert.

In New York City, epicenter both to America’s COVID-19 outbreak and to anti-Second Amendment fervor, one of the city’s gritty gun culture icons has already succumbed to the economic pressures of the Big Apples interminable lockdown and another is fighting for its life. Your help can ensure the latter survives.

First, the bad news. John Jovino Gun Shop on Grand Street in Little Italy and Chinatown had served New Yorkers since 1911 and billed itself as “the oldest gun shop in the USA.”

Ironically, 1911 was the same year Tammany Hall grifters – including Sen. Timothy Sullivan – enacted a New York State law that made possession and carrying of concealable firearms subject to a license issued at the discretion of local officials. In New York City, the infamous “Sullivan Act” was openly promoted as a way to keep firearms out of the hands of such “undesirables” as working class Italian immigrants, or the same people the New York Times described at the time as “[l]ow-browed foreigners.”

Born in those inauspicious times, John Jovino Gun Shop nevertheless managed to survive World War I, the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918, the Great Depression, World War II, the Hong Kong flu pandemic of 1968-69, the blackout Read More...
