“gun sense” is a protection racket

Triangle Tactical brought my attention to this Facebook comment: 

… and does a wonderful job explaining how this action is a punishable misdemeanor – either Class 2 or Class 1, depending on how much property was destroyed – in North Carolina. 

However, another thought came to my mind. 

The entire “gun control” / “gun sense” / Moms Demand / Everytown / Bloomberg’s-tax-write-off movement has turned into nothing more than a protection […]

quote of the day – me

Hey, it is my site, so I can claim I said something worthy of note.

Regular readers will know that I generally try my best to eschew logical fallacies, not just because they are fallacies, but also because they are so often – and so ineffectively – wielded against us and our rights. With that in mind, the following quote may surprise people in that, superficially, it appears to be nothing more than a […]

unsurprisingly, i have never been polled

A (not so) recent post by Thirdpower reminded me of something I had been meaning to post about for a while now.

Consider every “poll” you see suspect until you can see the source data.

Yes, that is an unquestionably bold statement, but bear with me a moment. To begin with, only 9% of those people called actually comply with the pollsters. Nine percent. This problem compounds itself with the majority of the […]

a welcome breath of fresh air

Any long-time participant in the ongoing debate surrounding "gun control" and the unjust abrogations of our basic, Constitutionally-protected human rights will be familiar with the phrase Reasoned Discourse, but for those newcomers to the field, allow me to give you a short-and-sweet summation of the idea.

Of late, and in the past, "gun control" supporters have been crying that they want to have a "debate" / "conversation" / "discussion" about the future of "gun […]

if a hypothesis is wrong once

This is, at least nominally, a firearm-related weblog, but it is worth delving into politics every once in a while.

The topic of homosexual marriages has come up recently – understandable, given the associated Supreme Court case – and the usual useful idiots have crawled out of the woodwork proclaiming that we cousin-humping, gun-toting rednecks universally hate teh gayz.

Y’know, except not.

My position on homosexual marriage is quite simple:

First, […]

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 […]

bill stevens – the gun violence victim you will never hear about

Back on 28JAN13, Bill Stevens delivered the following testimony (transcribed as best I could) to the public hearing of the Gun Violence Prevention Working Group of the Connecticut General Assembly:

My name is Bill Stevens; I live in Newtown.

My fifth-grade daughter was in "lockdown" on December 14th, 2012. Unfortunately, her classmate’s little sister was murdered in Sandy Hook that day when "lockdown" and 911 weren’t enough to protect her from an […]

don’t start nothin’, won’t be nothin’

There is hardly a day that goes by wherein I am not thankful for no longer having the misfortune of living in Kalifornistan; whether it is the price of gas, not having to pay for the CRV scam, or being able to own pretty much any firearm I desire, there is no shortage of good reasons not to live there. 

Amongst those reasons I can now count the fact that it would be almost […]

james yeager, helping the "gun control" extremists

Considering that my posts documenting how James Yeager is a coward and how he violated the Tennessee constitution are getting an unusual amount of traffic in recent days, I thought I would take a brief moment to comment on Yeager’s most recent bout of mind-numbing stupidity wherein he stated, "If it goes one inch further, I’m going to start killing people!".

First, just like the Sandy Hook Elementary School murderer, James Yeager is not […]

lou gagliardi wants to kidnap your children

But she wants someone else to do it for her, so that is ok. 

Unfortunately, the following Twitter conversation will be somewhat disjointed and I will be unable to adequately link to all of the various tweets.  Why?  Because Lou Gagliardi is a spineless coward who, upon realizing what she said, Memory Hole’d the tweets I managed to keep screen captures of. 

Why did she delete these tweets?  Why do you think – […]

quote of the day – kendra st. clair

By now, you all are probably aware of the story of the 12-year-old girl perforating the home-intruder through the bathroom closet door, but have you heard her response to the incident?

"When I had the gun, I didn’t think I was actually going to have to shoot somebody," the 6th grader recalled. "I think it’s going to change me a whole lot, knowing that I can hold my head up high and nothing can […]

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 individuals.

The source of […]

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 […]

here lies gun control

Born out of racism in 1751.

Died from civil rights efforts, 11DEC12.

No one will miss it.

Ok, no, "gun control" is far from dead, unfortunately, and even if we had managed to shove a stake through its heart, there would still be cultists trying to raise it back to life, but the point is that there is not a single state in the Union left wherein it is 100% illegal for […]

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 […]

there went that myth

A lot of anti-rights cultists would have you believe that each and every police officer patrolling the streets of our nation are all crack shots, and the shooting course necessary to join their exclusive ranks is so complex and difficult that we Mere Mortals could never stand a chance of passing, much less comparing.

As is frequently the case when dealing with people who support “gun control”, those people looking for any and all […]

why are "gun control" extremists so violent?

That is a question that you see rattling around pro-rights weblogs from time to time… The common theory is that the people we identify as "gun control" extremists are simply violent people, and they naturally gravitate towards supporting "gun control" because they also happen to suffer from something known as

"projection" – in short, they recognize (consciously or unconsciously) that they are violent people, but rather than dealing with that problem internally, they project that […]

assaulted – the fight to bear arms

Both the Second Amendment Foundation and the folks at Exile Machine (the folks who make the Hammerhead AR-15 grip I reviewed a while back) emailed me about this, so I guess I should probably say something:

Assaulted – The Fight To Bear Arms

When the subject of California’s gun control laws are discussed, rarely are they associated with the civil rights movement and the quest for equal rights for all. This film will compare […]

knoxville chick-fil-a respects your rights

I meant to put up this post over the weekend, but life conspired against me, and then Say Uncle linked to my last post, and here we are. However, the short-and-sweet of it is this:

The Knoxville / Turkey Creek Chick-Fil-A has NOT posted itself as a “gun-free zone” / victim-disarmament zone.

I drove by the store yesterday, and neither of its two entrances were posted with anything even approximating a “gunbuster” sticker, […]

another helpful resource

The trouble with keeping up with firearm-related laws in America is that they change so very often in so very many different locales and states, but the new book, Gun Laws By State makes a valiant attempt at providing a single-source reference for those of us who are interested in laws across borders. Unfortunately, it does fall short in a few places.

To begin with, I am intrigued at how this book is […]
