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 [...]

quote of the day – steve wood

Just file this comment by Steve Wood on my post regarding New York’s draconian new "gun control" law under "wish I had written that:

In the “low points” section:

- All such existing “assault weapons” must be registered with the state within one year of the effective date, and registration is subject to “a review of disqualifiers by the State Police.”

I think they may have misspelled another word besides muzzle ‘breaks’. They misspelled [...]

quote of the day – archer

We all know that "gun control" does not work at its professed purpose – reducing crime and making people "safer". History has taught us this time and time again, and continues to teach it to us to this very day, but the invariable question is, "Why does ‘gun control’ not work?"

Well, we could go into to the sociopolitical ramifications of disarming the law-abiding segment of your population, the reality that criminals prefer defenseless [...]

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 [...]

quote of the day – joe huffman

One of the most annoying throw-away lines from the "gun control" extremists on Twitter these days is, "Can we have a conversation about ‘gun control’?"

My immediate, knee jerk response to that kind of nonsense is, "Who the hell has been stopping you?" The problem, of course, is that they are not talking about themselves having the conversation; they want to guilt / entice / induce / force our duly-elected representatives into having the [...]

quote of the day – andrew s

I have touched on this a time or two before, but firearms are not exactly difficult to manufacture. Oh, sure, good firearms – y’know, the kind that are less likely to blow up in your face than not, that can hit a target reliably tens of yards away, etc. – require millions of dollars of fabrication equipment, testing, quality control and assurance, and the whole shebang of an assembly-line industry, but just a basic device [...]

quote of the day – markofafreeman

To steal a page from Say Uncle‘s schtick, I do this to entertain me, not you. Except in the case of sponsored or review posts, everything you see written here was pounded out by me simply because I (1) found it interesting, (b) had some opinions on the matter myself, and (iii) wanted to share those opinions with the world – such things as "exposure" and "traffic" and "CPM" and "SEO" and all the rest [...]

quote of the day – jay g.

Dear "gun control" extremists, anti-rights cultists, and other petty authoritarians:

We are Americans, and, as such, our reflexive, borderline knee-jerk reaction to someone telling us that we cannot / should not do something is to utter some variation of, "Screw you," and go and do it anywise. This land was discovered (in the European sense) by people who abided by that mentality, this country was settled and founded by people who wholly embraced that [...]

quote of the day – marko kloos

This one goes out to all of the anti-rights cultists and "gun control" extremists out there, courtesy of Major Caudill Marko:

We can argue any or all of the points above for hours, but there’s one thing that, on a philosophical level, you will never be able to make me concede:

That intentionally making yourself weaker in the face of danger and aggression is somehow more civilized, moral, intelligent, or enlightened.

You’re not [...]

quote of the day – roberta x

I confess that I experience some degree of perverse entertainment / amusement while I watch my peers and compatriots convince themselves they have to vote for either the crap sandwich or the gos-se sandwich in the upcoming Presidential election. No, a third party is not going to win this election, and it does not even really have a chance of placing that well in the overall polls… which is primarily due to the fact that [...]

quote of the day – weer’d beard

Why do "gun control" extremists hate women? Hold that question – we will come back to it.

I have to admit, the color pink does nothing for me. This is not some sexist statement; the color just has no particular attraction for me, and its extreme overuse by Hollywood socialites has all but soured me on the entire concept.

Furthermore, Better Half and I are both somewhat disheartened by firearm and firearm accessory [...]

quote of the day – peter

Well, it is fair to say the gunblogger community has finally come of age… not only do we have people skimming and siphoning off the community for their own profit, not only do we have people exploiting the community for their own gains, but we now have old-timers proclaiming their superiority solely through age.  As such, I am inclined to agree with Peter on this one: 

It’s time for another term for the pro-gun [...]

quote of the day – david e. young

A lot of anti-rights lawyers like to make a lot of noise over how much education they may or may not have received, and how many cases they have managed to stay awake for, and how smart they are, and so on so forth, but it is always interesting to note how little their superiors and betters care about their opinions – how many times have their comments been cited by any kind of higher [...]

quotes of the day – national defense authorization act

I am not going to directly comment on this situation until much later, after I have had time to calm down and fully collect my thoughts, but I figured these quotes would put you all in the right frame of mind.

United States Constitution, Article 1, Section 9, Clause 2:

The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety [...]

I like this cartoon… Y’know, it’s provocative!

quote of the day – @jessecbrooks

Given the District of Columbia’s long, storied, and successful history with "gun control", and given that it is illegal to possess an "assault weapon" in D.C., that you cannot legally transport loaded firearms in D.C., that it is illegal to discharge a firearm in D.C., that it is illegal to shoot at the White House, and that it is illegal to attempt the assassination of the President, obviously this whole White House shooting story is [...]

quote of the day – robb allen

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, [...]

quote of the day – joan peterson

This is me, being about as speechless as I get:

Who needs guns then? Well, hunters need guns for the sport. Some peo­ple need guns for their pro­fes­sion– law enforce­ment, secu­rity guards, peo­ple who trans­port cash from busi­nesses to banks, etc., gang mem­bers, drug car­tels, felons, rob­bers and those who, with­out a gun, could not do their jobs.

Follow the link for the full explanation (be not afraid – it does not go to [...]

quote of the day – fillyerhands

Last week, Spartanburg County, South Carolina, Sheriff Chuck White made the news by saying,

Sheriff Chuck Wright opened his news conference by saying, "Our form of justice is not making it."

He said, "Carry a concealed weapon. That’ll fix it."

… and continued by repeatedly exhorting people to get concealed carry permits and lawfully carry firearms for their own personal self-defense.

In a perfect world, any one of those exhortations would serve [...]

quote of the day – washington times

It must rather suck to be an anti-rights cultist these days… Your major organizations are getting their hands slapped when they are not too busy showing off their desperation, Constitutional Carry is slowly, inexorably marching across the country and only one state does not have some kind of allowance for the possibility of concealed carry, what used to be one of the firmest bastions of "gun control" extremism now calls out that zealotry for what [...]
