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, [...]
I do not drink coffee, but I appreciate companies that respect our individual rights to self-defense and self-preservation, and I further enjoy reminding anti-rights cultists how increasingly irrelevant they are making themselves; thankfully, Starbucks sells some stuff other than coffee:
The barista manning our local Starbucks seemed completely unfazed by my People of the Gun ballcap, and she commented to the customer before me (an apparent regular) that the day had been busier [...]
I do not read Joan Peterson‘s (aka "Japete") misnamed weblog "Common Gunsense", simply because the level of derangement that woman exhibits frankly frightens me, but the cost of that restraint on my part is that I miss out on a great deal of blogfodder, which, if this post is any indication, might be just as well for my blood pressure and opinion of humanity.
To cut straight to the chase, it would appear as [...]
… Guns and alcohol simply will not mix.
But moving on to more serious matters, it would appear as though the usual, useful idiots are trotting out the usual, useless arguments about ZOMG guns in bars. Color me surprised. However, just like here in Tennessee all those years ago, most of the arguments against allowing law-abiding, trained, and permitted individuals to carry firearms into establishments that serve alcohol are based on misdirection (the bill [...]
Apparently the new poster-victim of "gun control", [...]
Shortly after a deranged nutcase decided to shoot United States Representative Giffords and murder six other people, the left side of the American political spectrum came unglued over the right’s occasional use of certain graphics in their political messages – yes, because telling your constituents to “target” certain duly-elected representatives for upcoming removal from office by means of elections is obviously equivalent to shooting people you disagree with.
At the time, those same leftists [...]
Behold – a reasonable, rational, informative, educational (well, apart from that being a starter pistol Governor Perry is holding), and remarkably-well-linked article on concealed carrying while jogging… from Slate:
Reporters asked newly announced presidential candidate Rick Perry on Monday whether he carries a gun while campaigning. Perry refused to answer, but he does seem to carry guns in unexpected places. He shot a coyote while jogging in 2010, for example. What’s the safest way [...]
One of the more-amusing things to come out of the mouths/fingers of anti-rights cultists are the alternatives they suggest to self-defense by way of a firearm. To be certain, employing deadly force against another human being should be an avenue of last resort, but that option does not even occur to the hoplophobes when they suggest running away, fighting back with bare hands, and so forth. Hell, some anti-rights organizations like the CSGV are willing [...]
Every single time the laws of this country are adapted to better protect and preserve the individual right of self-defense, the anti-rights cultists of America inundate the airwaves with prognostications of firearm owners wantonly mowing down innocent civilians in fits of rage, accidents with firearms claiming the lives of defenseless children, and various other doom-and-gloom predictions of "blood in the streets". Concealed carry? Blood in the streets. Open carry? Blood in the streets. Constitutional carry? [...]
So this is something interesting that I will confess to not knowing until recently, and only discovered by way of the massively intensive research C. J. Chivers invested in his book, The Gun – the AR-15, one of the anti-rights cultists’ most hated and feared firearm, is not a civilianized copy of the M16. In point of truth, it is the other way around.
In fairness, Eugene Stoner developed the AR-15 with an eye [...]
And I dare say the “gun control”supporters of America are getting ripped off.
If you spend more than a little time browsing the black hole that is Twitter, you will see that the usual useful idiots amongst the anti-rights cultists are once again trying to peddle the myth that all firearm owners are universally white, male, and overweight.
I wonder what those narrow-minded hoplophobes would think of the two black couples and their black [...]
Last weekend, a lot of anti-rights cultists “remembered” the Virginia Tech mass shooting by attempting to use the incident as leverage to enact more “gun-free zones” (also known as “victim disarmament zones”), encourage people to support “gun control”, and other such anti-rights activities.
I have to wonder why people would use the failure of a program as a reason to support that program, but I stopped expecting rational thought out of hoplophobes a long [...]
In this post, I will endeavor to go where… well… everyone has gone before; however, it does seem to be necessary, and it will make a nice addition to my collection.
In terms of firearms, this is a clip:
Specifically, it is a stripper clip, also known as a “charger”. Note how the majority of the individual rounds is not covered, but only the rim of the cartridge is contained. Note the [...]
Now that the Project Gunrunner / Gunwalker scandal has hit the front page of Fox News, along with an ongoing investigation by CBS News, a thought occurred to me last night: where are the “gun control” advocates in this whole mess?
For years now, the anti-rights cultists have been trying to pin the myth that “90% of guns recovered in Mexico came from America” on law-abiding American citizens, despite the reams of evidence disproving that [...]
Wow. Kind of surprising it has been that long.
Anywise, back in 2007, noted bigot, hoplophobe, and racist Laua Washington wrote a positively hysterical (in both meanings of the word) anti-rights column which precipitated the creation of the People of the Gun webpage in order to show her just how narrow-minded her world view is, and just how diverse firearm owners really are. For my own part, I designed some graphics that you can still [...]
Honestly, I would love to say that I am onboard with this proposed plan to boycott the anti-rights weblogs out there, but the simple truth is that I shook that monkey off my back a few months ago – oh, sure, I still stop by when something exceptional rears its ugly little head (the recent poll debacle, for example), but even then, I read just long enough to confirm my fears and collect my blockquotes, [...]
Unfortunately, I must confess to being the weaker man, and not sharing in Joe Huffman’s belief that Joan Peterson just gave us the win in the “gun control” fight – to be certain, hers was a positively massive admission to make, and it thoroughly confirms some of my long-standing suspicious about the deeper motivations of anti-rights cultists, but it is just one (particularly deranged) individual’s comments, and you can rest assured that the Big Talkers [...]
