“The tank, the B-52, the fighter-bomber, the state controlled police and the military are the weapons of dictatorship. The rifle is the weapon of democracy. Not for nothing was the revolver called an 'equalizer'. Egalite implies liberte. And always will. Let us hope our weapons are never needed?ut do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny.”

not just an american notion

Did you know that Poland acknowledges and protects a human’s right to self-defense, up to and including defense of property? Neither did I, until I noticed this incoming link in my referral logs (translated from Polish here). In short,

Defense against unlawful attack (attack) is guaranteed by the law in force in Poland, the Criminal Code of 1997 year. This right is, however, one of the fundamental human rights of […]

the gun control mask slips a little more

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 […]


a not-so-hypothetical riot

You own a shop.

This shop cost you money to purchase/lease, and it is filled with an inventory of products that probably represents more than your personal net value.

This shop is in a decent part of town, and you have never really had a problem with shoplifting or other issues you could not handle with a phone call to the cops.

Only now, people are rioting down the street from you, […]

my lawn. get off it you will.

Personally, if it came time to defend my property from an unruly, violent, and destructive mob of thugs, I would probably reach for something a bit more… capable… than a bolt-action rifle with all of five rounds in the magazine, but it obviously worked:

Roger MacBride says that he’s used to looking out for trouble in his old Northeast neighborhood. But usually the problems involve prostitutes or drug addicts, and he says […]

take stock of your preparations

Is anyone surprised that Scott Adams grasps concepts that anti-rights cultists militantly refuse to:

After all, his grasp on reality is arguably more developed than most. 

quote of the day – marko kloos

Yes, I know WizardPC beat me to this topic, but someone else saying what I am about to say has never stopped me from saying it before, so why start now?

I have previously explained my position that one’s property is a physical manifestation of one’s life, and thus a person forcibly depriving you of that property is, in effect, retroactively enslaving you, so it should come as no surprise […]

spelling out the equation

Despite the number of words I frequently foist upon the altar of “Proving My Point”, I frequently have a tendency to go straight from the beginning to the end without bothering with the whole “middle” concept… believe me, my teachers hated that habit, not because I was wrong, but simply because I was not showing my work. In any case, there are a few logical, moral, and philosophical involved in my belief that […]
