On our way home from the Uwharrie National Forest this past weekend, Better Half expressed her… displeasure… at the mind-numbing stupidity inherent in this particular political cartoon:
For those unfamiliar with the backstory, Sean provides a concise summation of the current details.
Regarding the cartoon, however, as Better Half said in the car, can Dwane Powell point to a single example of a lawful carrier intentionally shooting a carnival game in the [...]
Well, would you look at that – it would appear as though some enterprising young entrepreneurs scumbag burglars with an internet connection went and used The Journal News’ map of firearm owners to pick out their next target:
A White Plains residence pinpointed on a controversial handgun permit database was burglarized Saturday, and the burglars’ target was the homeowner’s gun safe.
At least two burglars broke into a home on Davis Avenue at 9:30 [...]
And by “you”, I mean “everyone”.
Of late, I have not been wasting my time with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Ownership; after all, what kind of impact can a blatantly bigoted, anti-rights organization and its all-of-four bigoted, intolerant, narrow-minded, antagonistic, hateful members make except cyberstalking, bullying, and threatening pro-rights activists? The dustbin of history does not wait for them – it has already gathered them up and disposed of them, despite their [...]
[Update] Please see updated information regarding this story here. In short, Chick-Fil-A has NOT posted itself as a “gun-free zone”.[/UPDATE]
Well, now, this is interesting.
As regular readers will remember, I went to Chick-Fil-A on the first of this month to support them and show my disdain, to put it politely, for those governmental lackeys who would tell a private corporation where it can and cannot build based off nothing more than the personal [...]
But you knew that already.
Apparently Mr. Fat-Ass Lard-Ball himself had a "conversation"* with Piers Morgan over the non-existent merits of "gun control" here in the United States, and while I am going to try very, very hard to ignore the rest of his idiocy, this particular comment stood out in stark relief from the rest of his bigoted screed:
And I wish that we would just live in this century.
… It is the only way to be sure*.
Everyone knows where I stand on open carry so there is no sense in rehashing that particular terrain, and given that position, it should be no surprise that I was a little snarky at commenter "Andy" over at Say Uncle when he referred to the recent Open Carry Weekend (…Which I managed to miss – bad gunblogger! Bad!) as "attention whoring" and "stomping around the [...]
By and large, the hardcore "gun control" extremist organizations throughout America have to play the long, political game, which basically boils down to incrementalism – they want total civilian disarmament, and we know they want total civilian disarmament, and it is fair to say that they know we know, but in order to make any progress at all, they cannot exactly come out and say they want total civilian disarmament. That would just be too [...]
As I obliquely mentioned while exposing the "National Gun Victims Action Council" for being the gun-grabbing bigots they are, the anti-rights cultists are organizing a boycott of Starbucks, not just because the coffee company abides by the laws of whatever states their shops are in and thus allows open carry in their stores, but also because the NGVAC wants to extort massive amounts of money out of Starbucks:
[Elliot] Fineman said his organization plans [...]
Given the District of Columbia’s long, storied, and successful history with "gun control", and given that it is illegal to possess an "assault weapon" in D.C., that you cannot legally transport loaded firearms in D.C., that it is illegal to discharge a firearm in D.C., that it is illegal to shoot at the White House, and that it is illegal to attempt the assassination of the President, obviously this whole White House shooting story is [...]
Regular readers of this weblog may remember that my father came to the conclusion that he should start lawfully bearing arms after reading a particularly bigoted, narrow-minded, anti-Constitutional article penned by Rob Woutat, a "community columnist" for the Kitsap Sun. Suffice to say, I was quite amused at how an obvious anti-rights cultist had successfully alienated a recent fence-sitter, not only to the point of owning firearms, but also to the point of carrying them, [...]
So apparently the Mayors Against Illegal Guns took out some massive, whole-page ad in USA Today against the Senate approving H.R. 822, which would require states that issue handgun carry permits (or their equivalents) to recognize other states’ permits. *shrug* Cannot say as though I particularly care about a group of self-righteous, bigoted egotists who, on average, are convicted of crimes significantly more often than average citizens, so I never would have even noticed if [...]
No, I am not going to get any more involved in the current Open Carry Drama Llama parade than I obliquely did in my previous post. Why? Mike W. said it best:
Sigh. I am sick of the in-fighting. You don’t want to open carry? Fine, then don’t, but don’t tell others that they shouldn’t simply because YOU don’t like it. It makes you sound like some smarmy liberal.
… or an anti-rights bigot. [...]
One of the favorite arguments of anti-rights cultists is that firearm registration will cure all the firearm-related ills in our society. Never mind that registration leads to confiscation, and never mind that registries are largely failures especially when one is looking at the larger picture of total violent crime rates – they have decided this is The Right Thing To Do (TM), and by God, everyone should do it!
Just so everyone is on [...]
To keep up with the “maybe I should write new posts today” theme, does everyone remember how Ladd Everitt got the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s Twitter feed shut down for harassing, bullying, abusing, trying to intimidate, and “outing” pro-rights webloggers? That was a pretty impressive display of incompetence, right?
Well, how incompetent would you have to be to allow the domain registration for the CSGV’s webpage to expire? Pretty damned incompetent:
