"walls of the city" logo conceptualized by Oleg Volk and executed by Linoge. Logo is © "walls of the city".

possibly fake but definitely accurate

By now, most of my readers have probably seen this image, along with the various other ones floating around all branded with the Brady Campaign’s logo:

Said image’s text reading, "A rape can last 30 seconds but a murder lasts for ever. Guns are not the answer." For the Googles.

And, like most of my readers, I saw the image and immediately dismissed it as a parody – oh, to be certain, [...]

the truth about the truth about guns and robert farago

Unless you are prepared for a veritable skyscraper of text (over 9,000 words) and a serious airing of grievances, you should probably go ahead and plan on skipping this post.

That disclaimer dispensed with, here is how it is. Over the past few years, Robert Farago – the editor of The Truth About Guns – has functionally leeched off of, exploited, stabbed in the back, maligned, abused, lied about, misrepresented, stolen from, and infringed upon [...]

sam colt, and the internet, made them equal

Remember that video of me going to town with my Saiga-12? (I mean, it is only a few posts down from this one.)

Well, it turns out that single, solitary video, posted six days ago, has had more views than the 33 most-recent videos the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership put up… combined (and some of those videos have been up for four months now). Even better, neither "likes/dislikes" nor comments have [...]

tripadvisor gives us another win

To provide a bit of a humorous counterpoint to the previous post, do the failures known as the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership or the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Ownership have anything that TripAdvisor could actually rate?

Because the National Rifle Association does:

The Certificate of Excellence honors business that consistently earn top ratings from TripAdvisor travelers.

With a rating of 4.5, National Firearms Museum has earned a place among [...]

when you lose the media…

It is a long-accepted fact that the media – especially "print" media, whether it is actually on newsprint or in bytes – is generally a water-carrier for the anti-rights cultist organizations of America and abroad. The documentation is lengthy and comprehensive, and the only people really arguing the point are those organizations themselves and those who are already known supporters and sycophants of the same.

Moving right along, Politifact is an outgrowth of the [...]

where i pass up so many good puns

The only (and I do mean only) good part about gut-reaming stomach bugs is that you can come home early from work.  On one of the busiest days I have ever had at my current job.  Before the second-busiest week.  *sigh* 

Anywise, on that happy note, I will leave you with this article questioning why the Brady Campaign, Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and all the rest of the anti-rights organizations have been quiet [...]

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 [...]

shows where their priorities lie

A little over a month ago, I made the following comment in response to the "gun violence" candle-light vigils anti-rights cultists held and attended:

One interesting side-effect from not making this distinction is that by holding their candle-light vigils for “victims of ‘gun violence’”, the Brady Campaign and their sycophants are, by definition, memorializing those murderers, rapists, thieves, muggers, robbers, home-invaders, and other scumbags who were shot down in self-defense by their intended victims, [...]

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 [...]

tellin’ riddles in the dark

Want to know the difference between “gun control” extremists and pro-rights activist in one easy-to-swallow lesson?  Behold. 

Brady Campaign Board Member, blood-dancer extraordinaire, arguable face of “gun control”, and eugenicist Joan Peterson (writing under the moniker “japete”) at the conclusion of a post abusively castigating pro-rights activists for daring to point out that the anti-rights cultists’ “candlelight vigils” will do nothing to reduce the number of “gun violence” victims (note: none of the links [...]

shining the light on the cockroaches

It has come to my attention that various obsessive anti-rights cultists are maliciously and intentionally misrepresenting something I said in one of my previous posts; this, in and of itself, does not surprise me, but I thought I would take a moment to explain the thought fully to my audience, such that they can grasp the level of my disgust, and the depravity of those taking offense to what I said. 

The quote which [...]

caliber beats candle

Regular readers should be intimately familiar with my belief that, in general, people tend to learn better through pictures than through explanations. Of course, given my occasional wall-o’-text posts, I frequently fail at applying that belief to real-world scenarios, but, in my defense, I have crafted more than a few posts showing the failure of "gun control" graphically rather than textually.

Today’s exercise in visual learning, however, comes by way of Joe Huffman and [...]

caution: fragile bubble of delusion ahead

Say you hold to a belief, or set of beliefs.

Say you are 100%, unequivocally convinced that those beliefs are the correct beliefs to hold.

Say you know it is just a matter of time until you convince everyone else of the correctness of your beliefs.

Given that set of operating hypotheses, why would it matter if disbelievers spoke up against you? You know you are right, and you know that is [...]

the brady campaign lies

I am sure regular readers of this site are not overly surprised by that revelation, but it bears repeating as often as is necessary. 

As was pointed out to me by a “gun control” extremist who eventually blocked me when I pointed out the lie in question (What is it with those people being incapable of defending their positions or admitting they are wrong?), in 1999, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership [...]

tooting our own horns

Not to turn this into a measuring contest, but remind me again how much money the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Ownership, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership, and the Violence Policy Center Facilitators have donated to Soldiers’ Angels, or any organizations like them?

… Just wonderin’. I mean, it is not like the copious quantities of money they are getting from the Joyce Foundation is going to anything actually useful…

[...]

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 [...]

who listens to useful idiots?

Apparently the new poster-victim of "gun control", [...]

they say a picture is worth a thousand words

But sometimes adding some words to the picture greatly increases the overall impact: 

And that is, unfortunately, the God’s Honest Truth.  The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership cannot point to a single instance where any of the laws they have supported or do support have saved a single person’s life; however, there is one repeated, consistent theme in almost every major spree shooting in recent history:  armed resistance has stopped the [...]

with his tail firmly between his legs

Pretty much everyone else has understandably beaten me to this news already, but apparently Paul Helmke is abandoning the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership.

*shrug* Good riddance. Maybe now he will find the time to do something actually constructive with his life… in the end, shoveling cow manure would be more useful than the blatantly anti-rights causes to which he has dedicated the past five years of his life.
