I would like to take a moment today to extend my sincere thanks to the legislatures of both New York State and Connecticut for proving, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that "gun control" is, in truth and fact, a slippery slope.
Anti-rights cultists come absolutely unhinged every time you mention the possibility of "gun control" itself being a slippery slope, and tend to immediately decry such mutterings as prima facie logical fallacies; it [...]
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 [...]
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 – [...]
First, if you vote for candidate X because some idiot tells you that candidate Y stands no chance of winning, you successfully managed to find about the only way you can legitimately “waste” a vote, you succumbed to a base logical fallacy, and you completely missed the point of voting to begin with. The idiot who convinced you of this, however, is orders of magnitude more idiotic.
Second, I received a thousand of the [...]
I just voted for Gary Johnson in early voting about an hour ago, but here is a good reason for me to know I did the right thing:
What is he talking about? The Federal Election Commission spells it out, at least when it comes to the money:
The Presidential nominee of each major party may become eligible for a public grant of $20,000,000 plus COLA (over 1974). For 2012, the grant [...]
Just take a look at this conversation:
@willspencer: Most "Libertarians" want Obama to win, because they are angry at America. @RedheadAndRight @glennmw @KurtSchlichter @tnacgal
@linoge_wotc: I assume this was sarcasm. RT @willspencer Most "Libertarians" want Obama to win, because they are angry at America.
@willspencer: Unfortunately, no. Instead, it is an honest evaluation of what I am seeing. @linoge_wotc [Note: Tweet successfully Memory Hole’d. Replicated from memory.]
@linoge_wotc: Your perception is wrong. I suspect [...]
… Because now I am seriously considering acquiring a “real” AK-pattern firearm just because I can (and, no, Vera does not count; she may look the same, but damn).
So what brought about this sudden interest? Only Our Glorious President mouthing off and proving himself to be the petty “gun control” authoritarian we always knew him to be:
“I – like most Americans – believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the [...]
One of the occasional "arguments" (and I do use that term lightly) you will see come out of the more-deranged anti-rights cultists is that parts of the Constitution, and, specifically, the Bill of Rights, are so outdated that we can simply ignore them or abrogate them at will, and it is No Big Deal (TM)*. The Third Amendment is typically held up as an example of how "outdated" the Constitution is, and by way of [...]
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 [...]
Aside from my previous post dealing more with people’s reactions to the event rather than the event itself, I have largely avoided discussing the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman, and I plan on keeping up that topical silence in the near future. Why? Well, to begin with, we do not know all of the facts, and we may not ever know all of the facts, and drawing literally life-or-death conclusions based off horridly [...]
I am sure I have written about this in the past, but I continue to be astonished at how anti-rights cultists‘ brains work… or, for the most part, do not work.
For instance, by now, most of my readers are probably aware of the unfortunate case wherein George Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin; however, are you aware that anti-rights organizations like the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence are actively encouraging vigilante violence against George [...]
Regardless of the motivations, desires, or warped perversions of the twisted and abusive mind behind “Smoke & Thunder”, one thing is for certain – he seems to be attempting to discredit pro-rights webloggers by acting the arse and then associating himself with us, and by lampooning us at every available opportunity. Given how much the anti-rights cultists of American believe in and peddle the fallacy of “guilt by association”, it would not be a difficult [...]
Take a look at this story:
What happened next, to my mind, can only be attributed to the fact that I was OC.
As he drew parallel to me, he looked at me, looked at my firearm, looked at me again and stopped. He stared at me for about 5 seconds (I think) and I kinda stared back. He turned around and went back to the car, getting in the passenger seat. He got [...]
One of the favorite talking points of "gun control" extremists is that they are representing a "silent majority" of Americans who support increased levels of "gun control". Of course, this "silent majority" has a strange tendency of being about as quiet as your average graveyard, and even the membership rolls of the various anti-rights organizations are sorely lacking in anything one would consider "volume", but, damnit, those anti-rights cultists believe they have popular support, so [...]
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:
