DONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T BLAME LAW-ABIDING GUN OWNERS America has two gun cultures By Frank Miniter


hen a mass murder happens in our country, like so many Americans I wring my hands and look for answers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for anything that will stop these monsters. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to speak out at these times, because as Ecclesiastes correctly tells us there is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a time to every purpose under the heaven,â&#x20AC;? including â&#x20AC;&#x153;a time to mourn.â&#x20AC;? But then someone kicks me in the shin. This time it was CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, saying on CNNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Dayâ&#x20AC;? that the National Rifle Association and gun owners donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to tell the truth about guns. No, the truth that is many in the media refuse to cover the truth about guns and the gun cultures in America. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to admit there are two wildly different gun cultures in our country. One is the freedomloving, gun-rights culture that upholds the responsible use of guns for hunting, sport and self-defense. The other is the criminal culture that thrives in the places where government restricts gun rights. Not acknowledging that the two cultures exist separately, and instead pretending le-

gal gun owners are responsible for crimes committed by the illegal gun culture in America, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just a lie. It is getting good people killed. In the most recent mass murder last week at a Florida high school, where 14 students and three adults were killed, the FBI failed in its responsibility â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not guns or gun owners. That was hardly an anomaly. In many other cases a murderer should have been denied legal access to guns, but the bureaucracy failed us. In other cases, from Columbine High School in Colorado to the Pulse nightclub in Florida, law enforcement opted not to charge in to stop the carnage. They had their own safety in mind, but nevertheless this tells a person who carries concealed that they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t depend on law enforcement during such a scenario. And no matter how good a job law enforcement agencies do, police cannot be everywhere at all times when criminals may decide to begin murdering innocents. Because of this, disarming responsible and law-abiding gun owners to take away their ability to defend themselves and others is dangerous, and can result in greater loss of lives.

remember when...


GUN OWNERS, continued on Page 12



Meanwhile, the big lie being pushed in the media is that guns and the freedom enjoyed by Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than 100 million law-abiding gun owners are somehow to blame for murders. That narrative alienates gun owners and misdirects resources away from solving real problems. Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gun owners arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the problem. They are allies in the fight to stop criminals who use guns. Blaming guns also isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rational. First of all because guns donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t commit crimes all by themselves, but also because rifles of all types are used in less than 3 percent of murders each year in the U.S., according to FBI uniform crime reports. Semiautomatic firearms arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even new â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they are a late 19th century invention. The AR-15 (called an â&#x20AC;&#x153;assault weaponâ&#x20AC;? in the media, though that is a meaningless political moniker) was first sold to U.S. citizens in 1963, the same year the U.S. Army began buying M16s from Colt. Semiautomatic firearms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pistols, rifles and shotguns â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are the most popular sold today for hunting, self-defense and target shooting. As the 1994 law banning assault weapons showed, there is no real way to even define what constitutes an â&#x20AC;&#x153;assault weapon,â&#x20AC;? other than by deciding to ban whatever looks

RETHINKING 10 PAST OSCAR BEST PICTURES ...and movies that should have won


tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an Oscar moment so crazy, everybody knows it by one word: Envelopegate. A year ago at the Academy Awards, the musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;La La Landâ&#x20AC;? was named best picture â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and then it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, when the correct envelope revealed indie drama â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moonlightâ&#x20AC;? as the true winner. It was as if the gods of cinema inserted themselves to make sure the right movie was honored rather than the one with the guy trying to save jazz. This incident is unlikely to happen again in our lifetimes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it took 89 times to happen in the first place â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but on the eve of another movie joining the ranks at the 90th Oscars, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re rethinking past works deemed best picture and the films that should have conquered them.


Orson Wellesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Citizen Kaneâ&#x20AC;? won just one Oscar in 1942 for its screenplay. It should have won Best Picture.

ile Highâ&#x20AC;? Idyllwild (altitude 1.6 km) and Tahquitz Rock, often called Lily Rock, have received worldwide recognition from rock climbers since the 1930s. In 1947, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;difficulty of climbâ&#x20AC;? scale, based on Tahquitz Rock, was established. After the ascent of Half Dome in 1957, the Sierra Club tweaked the values and the ratings, which became known as the Yosemite Decimal System (YDS). Note: Tahquitz Rock is rated 5.9 and Half Dome is 5.12.

The arts community continues to flourish, and in 1998, Idyllwild was named one of100 Best Small Art Towns in America. Today, there are approximately 4,000 year-round residents. An additional 2,000 people live there part-time.


What to do

Idyllwild was once the summer home for migrating bands of the desert-dwelling Cahuilla Indians. The area was originally named Strawberry Valley by shepherds who regularly brought their flocks to graze. By the 1880s to early 1900s, there was an arts academy, as well as a sawmill, toll road, post office and tuberculosis sanatorium. Tourists from southern California started showing up. From the 1930s to 1950s, Idyllwild was further settled by buyers of second homes and became famous for the production of hand crafted â&#x20AC;&#x153;knotty pineâ&#x20AC;? furniture. In the 1960s and 1970s, hippies (including LSD guru Timothy Leary) discovered Idyllwild, much to the consternation of the locals.


by Howard Hian

Idyllwild is a mecca for outdoor sports, including rock climbing, hiking, trail running and walking. There are almost 500 routes around Tahquitz Rock and its neighbor, Suicide Rock. Additionally, there is horseback riding, camping, fishing, bouldering and mountain biking. In the village, pick up an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Explore Idyllwild Mapâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Explore Idyllwild Directory.â&#x20AC;? In town you will find restaurants, bars, boutiques, a bakery, gift shops, antique stores and art galleries galore. You will hear live music everywhere.

RANCHO BERNARDO GRAD HELPS TRAIN NAVYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BEST By Lt. Bridget Mitchell Navy Office of Community Outreach

FALLON, Nev. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In Nevadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high desert is the Navyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premiere tactical air warfare training center, home to the Naval Aviation Warfighting Development Center and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program, known to the world as TOPGUN. A 2016 Rancho Bernardo High School graduate is part of the Navyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest aviation fighter training facility in the world. Hospitalman Jared Mortel is a hospital corpsman working with the Naval Branch Health Clinic Fallon stationed aboard Naval Air Station Fallon, Nev. A Navy hospital corpsman is responsible for patient check-ins, administering vitals and briefing the primary care provider before medical exams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I grew up in Philippines and moved to California four years ago. My father encouraged me to join the military. I decided the best decision was to join the Navy and pursue a career in the medical field,â&#x20AC;? Mortel said. TOPGUN began 48 years ago with the determination of nine pilots, the skepticism of the government and almost no budget, as history would recall. In the early years it turned the tide of a losing air war in Vietnam, revolutionized military

doctrine, inspired a Hollywood blockbuster and attracted and trained the best allied pilots and air crew from all over the world. Mortel plays a crucial role in the overall mission that flies more than 5,000 adversary sorties per year in support of the Navy and Marine Corp Active and Reserve fleet and replacement squadrons, carrier air wings and marine aircraft groups including the United States Air Force, Air Force Reserve and Air National guard and Canadian Forces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nowhere in the world does the Navy have the ability to train as we do in NAS Fallon. The Navy specifically chose NAS Fallon as the location for Top Gun and the Naval Special Warfare Tactical Ground Mobility Training Center because of the desert climate, mountainous terrain, and sophisticated ranges available in northern Nevada. Every Carrier Air Wing and Navy Seal Team is required to receive the essential training provided here prior to being deployed in theater,â&#x20AC;? said Capt. David Halloran, NAS Fallon commanding officer. According to Navy officials, TOPGUN is highly competitive and exposes Navy and Marine Corp pilots to the most demanding training scenarios in fighter aviation lead by some of the most talented pilots in the world. Each pilot is hand-selected for air-to-air and air-to-ground training and

subsequently, as a TOPGUN instructor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the first in my immediate family to serve in the military,â&#x20AC;? Mortel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of graduating boot camp and hospital corpsman school.â&#x20AC;? Mortel also said they are proud to serve at the center of excellence for naval aviation, training and tactics development.

The future of U.S. aviation depends on the Navyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to achieve their vision for defeating tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s air threats with the support of the ground crews and pilots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m honored to serve in patient care and proud to serve my country as a naturalized citizen. I know my contributions are part of the larger Navy mission,â&#x20AC;? added Mortel.

head monk went down into the cellar with one of the copies to check it against the original. Hours later, nobody had seen him, so one of the monks went downstairs to look for him. He heard a sobbing coming from the back of the cellar and found the old monk leaning over one of the original books, crying. He asked what was wrong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The word is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;celebrateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? sobbed the head monk.


Just for Dalmations

Laughs Wish come true


A nursery school teacher was delivering a station wagon full of kids home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a dalmatian dog. The children fell to discussing the dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They use him to keep crowds back,â&#x20AC;? said one youngster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No,â&#x20AC;? said another, â&#x20AC;&#x153;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just for good luck.â&#x20AC;? A third child brought the argument to a close. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They use the dogs,â&#x20AC;? she said firmly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to find the fire hydrant.â&#x20AC;?

Two men were fishing. They found a bottle floating on the water, retrieved it, rubbed it, and a genie popped out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll grant each of you one wish,â&#x20AC;? said the genie. The first man wished for a new fishing boat, all decked out, complete with outboard, the whole nine yards. Poof! New boat! The second man wished for the lake to Happy hour be turned into beer. Poof!

The woman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That would be okay,â&#x20AC;? and for her first wish, she wanted to be the most beautiful woman in the world. The frog warned her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You do realize that this wish will also make your husband the most handsome man in the world, an Adonis, that women will flock to.â&#x20AC;?

The woman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That will be OK, because what is mine is his and what is his is mine.â&#x20AC;? So, KAZAM sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the richest woman in the world!

â&#x20AC;&#x153;How was your golf game, dear?â&#x20AC;? asked Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well I was hitting pretty well, but my eyesightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gotten so bad I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see where the ball went.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 75 years old now, Jack, why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you take my brother Scott along?â&#x20AC;? suggested his wife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 85 and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even play golf anymore,â&#x20AC;? protested Jack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got perfect eyesight. He could watch your ball,â&#x20AC;? his wife pointed out. The next day Jack teed off with Scott looking on. Jack swung, and the ball disappeared down the middle of the fairway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you see it?â&#x20AC;? asked Jack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yup,â&#x20AC;? Scott answered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, where is it?â&#x20AC;? yelled Jack, peering off into the distance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I forgot.â&#x20AC;?

The man decided to help the boy, walked up on to the porch and pushed the doorbell. He looked down at the boy, smiled and asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What now?â&#x20AC;?

a 55.8 rebounding rate. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also 29th in offensive rebounding percentage, securing 34.4 percent of their own misses. Senior forward Jemerrio Jones is the primary factor down low, averaging 12.7 rebounds per game with 10.7 points and 3.4 assists. Zach Lofton leads NMSU with 19.3 points per game and is one of three other players (Eli Chuha and Johnny McCants) who snatches 4.0 or more boards per game. Additionally, the Aggies boast the 14thstingiest perimeter defense. Their opponents are shooting a mere 30.9 percent from beyond the arc. Its abilities to shut down the three-point game and limit second-chance opportunities make NMSU a nightmare to face.

South Dakota State Jackrabbits

South Dakota State is likely familiar to some because of Mike Daum, who carried the program to the Big Dance last year. This season, the sweet-shooting forward has a little more help. David Jenkins Jr. (15.9 points per game) and Reed Tellinghuisen (12.2) are consistent scorers, and they are shooting 38.8 and 39.9 percent from three-point range, respectively, while attempting 6.3 and 4.6 each contest. Along with Daum (23.6 points; 42.4 three-point percentage on 6.2 attempts) and Skyler Flatten (50.5 on 3.2), thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dangerous perimeter group.

Anthony Minghellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s romantic World War II drama is a fine film, though it tests viewersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; patience over the course of three hours. On the other hand, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fargoâ&#x20AC;? spawned a TV series and a fandom for the Coen brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; winningly quirky black comedy about murderous deeds and dimwits in snow-covered Minnesota.

Paul Haggisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; interwoven all-star drama about racial tensions in L.A., plagued by mixed reviews and complaints of stereotyping, has caught flak for more than 10 years as an Oscar fail. And it is, especially considering Ang Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s timeless and resonant â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brokebackâ&#x20AC;? was sitting right there, with Jake Gyllenhaal and the late Heath Ledger as cowboys in a forbidden love affair.

The consensus at the time was that period drama â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Speech,â&#x20AC;? with Colin Firthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s George VI working through a troublesome stutter, pulled an upset on David Fincherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vaunted Facebook bio â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Social Network.â&#x20AC;?

Where to stay

A recommendation from a friend brought me to The Grand Idyllwild Lodge, a luxury boutique inn. Designed and built by the owners, its architecture is classic California Craftsman. It delivers a wonderful bed and breakfast experience, with hands-on service and an excellent full breakfast on weekends. Coffee and tea are available all day in the lobby. The rooms feature Wi-Fi, flat screen smart TVs, Keurig coffee and plush bedding.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free parking and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a short stroll into town. There are trails on the property, a small sauna, a gym and spa services can be arranged. Only 5-yearsold, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already earned a 94 percent â&#x20AC;&#x153;Excellentâ&#x20AC;? rating on TripAdvisor and received AAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coveted Four Diamond award.
