Steve Bailey of the Boston Globe Responds

Friday, July 20th, 2007

Seems alleged law-breaker and alleged journalist Steve Bailey of the Boston Globe blames all of his ills on the evil gun lobby: There is an epidemic of handgun violence in Boston’s poorest neighborhoods, and the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is investigating me? Well, you implied you broke the law. Then went […]

DC Police Investigate David Gregory

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

You’ll recall he went and broke DC gun laws on national TV by possessing a regular capacity AR magazine on the air where they are illegal, while clamoring for more gun laws. Well, seems he’s being investigated for it. Good. Felony charge and let him live under the laws he proposes. However, I don’t expect […]

Breaking the law?

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

As a general rule, it’s a bad idea to post a video of yourself committing a felony on youtube. But this Brady Campaign video shows a Virginia resident buying a handgun out of state at a gun show (ETA: Go to about 2:15). And that is a crime. Also, looks to be a straw purchase. […]

Well, their reporters commit gun crimes

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

Over at the National Shooting Sports Foundation Blog, Bill Brassard notes that the Boston Globe printed an article full of crap and John Rosenthal, but I repeat myself. Shouldn’t surprise anyone, really. After all, John Rosenthal took one of the Globe’s alleged reporters, Steve Bailey, across state lines where they allegedly proceeded to violate federal […]

Holy Crap!

The Boston Globe has a piece on may issue concealed carry being onerous. No, really: Gun owners are complaining that local police chiefs have too much leeway in considering applications for the state’s concealed weapons license, creating a frustrating patchwork of gun regulations that vary from town to town. In a letter to the state […]

So, how’s that investigation coming?

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

Alleged gun criminal and alleged journalist Steve Bailey is getting play again.

Boston Globe Straw Purchase Update

Monday, August 20th, 2007

Alleged law-breaker and alleged journalist Steve Bailey (background here) has hit another snag. Seems the gun dealer involved refutes his claim to have engaged in a straw purchase (though Steve, evoking sixth grade playground rules, has since called a do-over): Gun Week has learned from a source close to the investigation that the columnist and/or […]

Straw purchaser makes straw man argument

Friday, August 10th, 2007

Steve Bailey, the reporter under investigation for allegedly using a straw purchase to attack the firearm industry is now trying to take apart the SAF. Regular readers know I am being investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This silly flap grows out of a column I wrote nearly two years ago […]

It’s not the crime it’s the cover up

Friday, July 27th, 2007

Or, you know, typical anti-gun bias at CNN: I was a bit dismayed and a little surprised to hear a CNN Headline News analyst refer to gun owners and “gun nuts” and “Second Amendment literalists” in an offhand comment during a report on the recent TSA report of suspicious activity. […] This is what I […]

Seems with the recent and many losses of the anti-gunners, they’re pulling out all the pants-shitting hysterics: The Smoking Gun: NRA Admits it Does Not Support Criminal Background Checks for All Gun Sales Stop Handgun Violence, a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of gun violence, today released on-the-record quotes from a National Rifle Association […]

I’m sticking with the bullying and the lying

Monday, July 23rd, 2007

Mostly the lying. But it seems that the Second Amendment Foundation is sticking to its guns about alleged journalist Steve Bailey (prior coverage here and here) breaking the law: Boston Globe columnist Steve Bailey is having a hissy fit about finding himself in the same uncomfortable position he has wished upon so many law-abiding American […]

What’s missing from this story?

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

This story (h/t David) notes: A major pro-gun group took aim at award-winning Boston Globe business columnist Steve Bailey yesterday, saying he violated federal law while researching a 2005 anti-gun column and should be fired. The Second Amendment Foundation, which is based in Bellevue, Wash., said it sent a letter to Globe Editor Martin Baron […]

American Hunters and Shooters Association Billboard

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

If you believe they’re an alternative to the NRA, you’ve been fooled. In other news, not only is John Rosenthal (President of American Hunters and Shooters Ass.) disingenuous, he’s also a felon: During the show a reporter, Steve Bailey of the Boston Globe, explained how he and Rosenthal had attended a gun show in New […]

OK, two idiots

The other is Steve Bailey, who Bruce fisks.

Globe Trotting

Monday, May 4th, 2009

Looks like the Boston Globe is about to go Tango Uniform. Doesn’t break my heart much. One less anti-gun editorial board. I guess they won’t be paying their reporters to break the law now? Via Bruce, who notes: Lifetime job guarantees for people who work the printing presses for a newspaper??? Who’s the business genius […]

those evil gun shows

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

John Rosenthal: Gun Shows are the equivalent of al Qaeda terrorists walking right onto the airplane while law abiding citizens wait in the TSA line! Gad, the hyberbole! He would know since he has admitted using the alleged gun show loophole along with an anti-gun reporter to engage in a straw purchase. And said reporter […]

I’d like to give a shout out to my homies in Boston

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

I see from my logs that the Boston Globe is checking us out. I wonder why that is?

Government malpractice, red light camera update

Wednesday, November 9th, 2005

Knoxville City Council approved the Redflex red lights cameras by a 6-3 vote last night. Only Steve Hall, Joe Bailey, and Joe Hultquist voted against the red light cameras. The closet thing to a poll on this is at the Knoxville News Sentinel online edition. The overwhelming majority of respondents are against the red light […]
