he might know a thing or two about totalitarian governments

Those who would unjustly deprive us of our Constitutionally-protected individual rights to self-defense, self-preservation, and the peaceful ownership of private property make a big deal about the number of "gun violence" victims they have on their side, as if being shot at by a criminal somehow makes you an expert on all things firearm- and rights-related (note: it does not). Unfortunately, once you start pulling back the layers of publicity polish and bluster, you start [...]

consider the symbology

Uniformed, badged personnel, operating under the authority and power of an authoritarian set of laws granting them extra-Constitutional capacities, instruct you – an American citizen who has broken no laws and done no wrong – to adopt a position of submission – hands above your head – before entering a chamber that could, on quick glance, resemble a high-tech shower stall.  After that, you will be "allowed" to enter the secure side of the area [...]

why we win

It really boils down to a difference in perceptions.

On the one hand, "gun control" fetishists gleefully dance in the blood of victims and exploit the murder of innocents to further their own, personal, unjust, totalitarian, anti-Constitutional dreams, as documented in the image to the right. (Highlights added to really bring out the crazy in those cultists’ eyes.)

On the other hand, we quite cheerfully and respectfully celebrate the lawful, peaceful defense of [...]

quote of the day – @scootey

A common theme you will find amongst “gun control” extremists is that they not only hate the Second Amendment, they hate all the Amendments, but especially those found within the original Bill of Rights.  This only makes sense – if there is one thing an authoritarian or totalitarian hates, it is individual rights, and a document and its addendums that go out of their way to specifically protect and preserve those individual rights would be [...]

dear jeremy alcede, owner of tactical firearms

I do not live near Katy, Texas, and I probably never will, but I can guarantee you that I will never purchase a single thing from you.

For the rest of you all, the answer to the inevitable, "Why?" is contained within this radio interview:

Matt Patrick: It is 6:16, Houston’s Morning News and I’m Matt Patrick. Glad you’re here; also glad that Tactical Firearms owner Jeremy Alcede is joining me, and, Jeremy, first of [...]

“gun control” demotivator

Really, I have no particular use for a 30-round magazine for my Baby Eagle (no carbines take its magazines, I would not carry such a magazine (where would I put it?), and the damned thing weighs a ton when fully loaded regardless) but some halfwitted petty totalitarians decided that us “average” Americans should not be allowed to purchase/own such a device, so I adopted the attitude that founded this country and proceeded to make [...]

quote of the day – roberta x

I confess that I experience some degree of perverse entertainment / amusement while I watch my peers and compatriots convince themselves they have to vote for either the crap sandwich or the gos-se sandwich in the upcoming Presidential election. No, a third party is not going to win this election, and it does not even really have a chance of placing that well in the overall polls… which is primarily due to the fact that [...]

keeping score on their irrelevance

Speaking of graphics, it would appear as though the hoplophobic "gun control" extremists at the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership has released another one of their yearly "scorecards"*. What does that have to do with pretty pictures? Not a darned thing, but Barron’s analysis of that scorecard generated some nice graphs that I am going to steal, along with their explanations, below:

Here is the straight comparison of the score versus the [...]

ngvac set gun control up the bomb

I have to admit – I really, really love it when our opponents stab themselves in the back. It is no great surprise that the Germans had a word for that concept, but no matter how you cut it, watching anti-rights cultists destroy their own arguments with wanton disregard for the damage they are causing is hilarious indeed.

Speaking of, one of the few advantages of keeping at least half an eye on Twitter [...]

graphics matter, fire support

Going a slightly different direction with the data, Barron Barnett has taken a look at the FBI UCR report and how it correlates to the Brady Campaign state "scores". Predictably enough, it does not:

While R2 has increased, it is still inconsequential and shows absolutely zero correlation over the entire data set. It is worth nothing though the overall score vs. crime trend has gone from being slightly negative to positive. By looking [...]

quote of the day – jmg257

By now, nearly every single other pro-rights weblog is aware of the cold hard truth that Michael Bonomo, writing under the assumed name "mikeb302000", is nothing more than a flame-baiting, attention-whoring, logically-deficient, ignorant, uneducated*, bigoted, lying troll with a admitted criminal history who only comments on other people’s weblogs to try to get return traffic, and who only cares about "gun control" insofar as his comments and posts on it generate attention for him, negative [...]

quote of the day – alan

Ok, I promised you I would not say anything more about this current open carry froofera… I never promised that I would not highlight other people’s words, like this comment by Alan:

You know the reason I want to open carry? Because it’s my right as a living human and if you disagree then you can just f*ck off.

(Slightly edited to maintain the mostly-PG-13 rating of this site.)

Incidentally, this comment [...]

why are they so eager to expose their bigotry?

Thank you, dear Twitter gods, for giving the willfully ignorant, narrow-minded, and bigoted a place to demonstrate their shortcomings freely and without limitations to the rest of the world.

Sincerely,

Someone who enjoys blogfodder.

Now that we have taken care of giving thanks, let us turn to the matter at hands. This morning, I had the… privilege… of engaging in the following conversation with an anti-rights cultist who, as her words will [...]

csgv hates us for our rights

Today presented another leaden opportunity to peer into the dark, twisted, demented depths of the mind driving the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Ownership Twitter account (in all likelihood, that anti-rights organization’s “Director of Communications”, Ladd Everitt), and, hey, when you get the chance to procure some free blogfodder, it is on you if you do not jump at it. 

Consider the below conversation: 

CSGV:  Did you know that the Quran-burning pastor is [...]

quote of the day – joe huffman

At the end of the Constitutional Conventions that finally dictated the type, form, and nature of the government that was going to guide our new nation back in 1787, an anonymous woman is reported to have asked the inimitable Benjamin Franklin what kind of government he and his compatriots had formed – after all, the average people of the Colonies had little knowledge of what was transpiring behind those closed doors. 

That man’s recorded [...]

something society should do

Have you ever noticed how anti-rights cultists have an amazing tendency to make unilateral, arbitrary proclamations, and immediately treat them as Gospel… Something Society Should Do?  In almost complete totality, these proclamations are devoid of any logic or reason to support them, apart from those cultists innate desires to support “gun control”, increase the government’s authoritarian powers, and persecute law-abiding-but-firearm-owning American citizens. 

Take, for example, the situation wherein the Washington State Patrol [...]

one million boxes to rule them all

As pretty much the entire world is aware by now, Egypt pulled the plug on their Internet connection during their recent “troubling times”… The exact mechanics of how this particular authoritarian action was accomplished are somewhat immaterial to this post, but the upshot is that for around a week, no one connecting to the ‘net from Egypt could reach any web server outside of the country, with the opposite tactic being employed for cell phones [...]

begging permission to exercise a right

It is starting to look like New York City wants their authoritarian gun laws challenged in a court of law:

Under proposed revisions to the police department’s handgun, rifle and shotgun permit procedures, the NYPD can reject gun license applicants for a number of reasons, including:

If they have been arrested or convicted of almost any “violation,” in any state; having a “poor driving history”; having been fired for “circumstances that demonstrate lack [...]
