Regular readers will know that I am fond of dorking around with numbers and seeing what presenting them in different ways can show us. Invariably, this graphic came to my attention (specifically when FarmDad posted a link in Gunblogger Conspiracy to a Facebook post about it):
A few things bugged me about that graphic right off. First, where did the numbers come from? I did not know the FBI published information on a [...]
This is me, not being surprised:
The Transportation Security Administration has been quietly removing its X-ray body scanners from major airports over the last few weeks and replacing them with machines that radiation experts believe are safer.
I have only been harping on this for about two years now, but, hey, giving two years’ worth of airline passengers an increased chance of cancer is no big deal, right?
Oh, wait, the Thousands of [...]
Bruce W. Krafft, one of the News/Editorials reposters at KeepAndBearArms.com (links intentionally withheld), has made it repeatedly clear that "lots of content" takes priority over such trivial ethical details as copyright infringements, lies, exploitation of the pro-rights community, and abusive behavior towards other people, and, as such, he intends to continue using KeepAndBearArms.com to point traffic at The Truth About Guns. This, however, should be hardly surprising, given that Bruce Krafft was and remains a [...]
A few days ago, yet another anti-rights cultist made some bleating tweet about how Americans needed to have a "conversation" about "gun violence" and "gun deaths". Obviously, we have already had this conversation (hint: the anti-rights cultists lost, and rightfully so), but this "conversation" schtick is the current "gun control" talking point, so all of the useful idiots are out in droves harping on it as hard as they can.
Anywise, I pointed out [...]
Dear producers and writers of “American Guns”, and staff and owners of “Gunsmoke”,
I understand the need to exaggerate and embellish a little to make “good” television shows – after all, reality can be somewhat boring from time to time, and you want to ensure the people watching your show today continue watching it tomorrow and the next day. So you tweak a few little details: you have targets explode when they are hit [...]
If I ever had the misfortune of paying to be taught about Constitutional law by the now-President Barack Hussein Obama, I think I would be demanding a refund:
The president spoke at length about the case at a joint press conference with the leaders of Mexico and Canada. The president, adopting what he described as the language of conservatives who fret about judicial activism, questioned how an "unelected group of people" could overturn a [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
I suppose I should be thankful that some things in this world will remain constant, no matter how much everything else around us changes.
It would appear as though wanna-be gunblogger and certified attention whore Robert Farago is still being a dick, and a rather ineffective one at that.
Color me surprised.
Someone who stoops to arbitrarily deleting comments and then lying about the content of those comments, misappropriating and misrepresenting others’ [...]
One of the many things that sets pro-rights advocates apart from "gun control" extremists is that our positions are generally based on facts, truth, reality, and what actually works, while theirs are generally… not. Recently, there has been no better example of this disparity than the behavior of the "Mayors Against Illegal Guns".
Regular readers will already be aware of the fact that MAIG members are convicted of crimes more often than "average" citizens, [...]
In a completely unsurprising move that everyone knew was coming, Attorney General Eric Holder took the stand in front of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this week, unzipped his trousers, and urinated all over the memories of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata by lying through his teeth about the “Gunwalker” operation his Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives was unquestionably running, and then trying to blame the [...]
Regular readers should be wholly aware of Brady Campaign Board Member and general-purpose "gun control" extremist, Joan Peterson, and her particular inability to craft or identify logical arguments, but do you remember that Joan’s flagrant, whimsical, and ineffective attempts to censor conversations at her site were the reason Sean Sorrentino started weblogging? Patrick did, which allowed him to make this priceless comment regarding how Sean is helping improve the media’s perspective on firearm owners:
Apparently the new poster-victim of "gun control", [...]
