delivered straight to your doors, no questions asked

I realize I may be telling you something you already know, but I want to highlight this quote from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives:

Based on Section 921(a)(3), air guns, because they use compressed air and not an explosive to expel a projectile, do not constitute firearms under Federal law — unless they are manufactured with the frames or receivers of an actual firearm. Accordingly, the domestic sale and possession of […]

it was going to happen eventually

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 […]

why are gun control extremists so abusive?

[Note:  If excessive foul language, abusive mentalities, and borderline death threats are not your cup of tea, I would advise against reading through this post; I did not write any of that particular material, but I do believe it should be preserved for the future.]

Yesterday, I had the… misfortune… of interacting with the Twitter account @HockeyOpera, whose screen name is “Gloves Off!”, which apparently refers to “A Hockey Opera in Three Act is is […]

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 […]

mythbusting in the real world

One of the favorite myths of "gun control" extremists is that firearms – and specifically handguns – have no use other than killing people. Obviously, this is not true – an object’s use is entirely dependent upon the intent of the user (and intent is non-transferable ), not the narrow-minded edict of ignorant fools – but not matter how many times the inconsistency is pointed out, those who blame the object rather than the wielder […]

a lawsuit hardly cuts it

Regular readers will recall the series of posts I wrote concerning the killing of Jose Guerena by the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, as well as my contentions that:

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department created this situation when they reached and stretched for every piece of unrelated information they could possibly find to manufacture something approximating "probable cause". The Pima County Sheriff’s Department created this situation when they decided to stage a full-force invasion of […]

the collapse will not be aired

By and large, I do not go to political speeches, rallies, or events… I generally read faster than most people talk, so I tend to get bored, and the honest reality is that I hate having to listen to people tell other people that they are going to to do something when they have next to no actual interest in actually doing it. I guess I am old-fashioned like that.

In the end, though, […]

i just want to say

Officer Matt Lyons, you are a credit to the Oceanside Police Department, and I would like to thank you for your courteous, professional, and responsible handling of a California resident recently unloaded-open-carrying.

On a somewhat related note, I, personally, have no problems with identifying myself to police officers, just like I have no problems with people not identifying themselves to police officers (so long as that action is lawful in their respective states/towns). Tennessee, […]

clarification on the collapse

File this under "Reasons Not to Write Weblog Posts When You are So Angry You Can Hardly See Straight".

Last week, I penned the following quote:

I guess our country had a good run, but welcome to the police state. When an apparently law-abiding citizen and veteran can be gunned down in his own home for owning legal property and being unfortunately related to a family of allegedly law-breaking pikers, this "America" experiment […]

quote of the day – barron barnett

For the past four years, I have been accurately describing the behavior of anti-rights cultists as aiding and abetting criminals of America – after all, by disarming those criminals’ intended victims, the hoplophobes are demonstrably assisting those criminals by making their lives, and their crime, so much easier. Worse still, lest you be deluded into thinking the anti-rights nuts are disarming the law-abiding out of some misguided sense of doing something right, it is already […]

quote of the day – joan peterson

I have spoken previously concerning how Joan Peterson is the face of “gun control” (though Colin Goddard is desperately trying to supplant her), how the majority of Joan’s arguments are based on inherently flawed logical fallacies, and how some of her positions are borderline disgusting in their flagrant blood-dancing, so today’s revelation should not no surprise for anyone. Specifically, Joan Peterson has no problem libeling each and every American who is concerned about their individual […]

open carry changes nothing

Any time I leave the house for anything other than yard work or exercise (and it has been a hard race to determine which of those is less frequent), I am invariably dressed in clean clothing that is devoid of holes, significantly frayed hems (pants legs are always a problem for me), or other glaring problems.

When interfacing with people in public, I do my best to say, “Yes ma’am/sir,” and “No ma’am/sir,” regardless […]
