This probably comes as no surprise to some of my readers, but I grew up in a very conservative family, and for many years, I had a… shall we say "less than salutary" view of homosexuals, transgenders, queers, and all of the rest of the terminologies and categories people can fall into other than "straight and square". I would not say I was homophobic, per se, simply because they did not frighten me, but rather [...]
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 [...]
By now, regular readers of my weblog should be familiar with the name “Baldr Odinson” – that spineless, dishonest, cowardly troll who so very much hates it when his own methodologies and tricks are used against him (speaking of, I need to put his poll back up at some point). Regular readers of the pro-rights community would also be aware that Baldr Odinson condoned, if not outright supported, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s vicious, [...]
To keep up with the “maybe I should write new posts today” theme, does everyone remember how Ladd Everitt got the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s Twitter feed shut down for harassing, bullying, abusing, trying to intimidate, and “outing” pro-rights webloggers? That was a pretty impressive display of incompetence, right?
Well, how incompetent would you have to be to allow the domain registration for the CSGV’s webpage to expire? Pretty damned incompetent:
Well, this is a first for my humble little weblog:
Yup, that (item number 8, specifically) is the picture of the email I sent to Twitter regarding the CSGV’s harassment, intimidation, and "outing" of pro-rights webloggers being used as a source for the Wikipedia page on the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.
Long-time readers will be familiar with my remarkably dim view of Wikipedia, but I am fairly certain this marks the [...]
… But I am proud to have been the one to stand up and point it out.

Since it has come to my attention that the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has seen fit to further viciously and maliciously lie about my behavior in this incident on their Facebook page, I thought I would set the record straight. Below is a screencap of the email I sent Twitter:
And any of the four people who work for that bigoted, anti-rights organization – Michael K. Beard, Joshua Horwitz, Ladd Everitt, or Manda Kelley – may feel welcome to come forward and provide an answer; unlike them, I do not only accept comments from people who agree with me.
The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s mission statement, as published on their webpage, is, and I quote:
The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence seeks [...]
It would appear as though Ladd Everitt and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has devolved from threatening a man’s family over a difference of opinions, to threatening multiple pro-rights webloggers’ families (including mine now) over differences of opinion.
What do these anti-rights bigots hope to achieve with their kindergarten-grade "outing" and cyberstalking of pro-rights webloggers? Are they so stupid as to think that naming us will somehow stop us from continuing to stand up [...]
