You may not know this, but one of the ways Traction Control pays the bills is by running an FFL; this is his stock level from nine days before Election Day to 51+ days after:
Yeah, he is basically out of ammunition.
One can only assume that his numbers are fairly representative of what transpired at other FFLs, accessory companies, and firearm-related stores across the country if one remembers what happened about [...]
A few months ago, I happened to have a rather… interesting*… conversation with the warped and benighted mind behind the Twitter account of @1StopCity. A recurring theme in this particular conversation is that unless you have a particular "need" for something or to do something, you have absolutely no right to that thing or to do that thing, or, in his very own words, "Odds against you "needing" a gun negate your right to own [...]
Over the weekend, the below email came in from Miguel at Gun Free Zone:
Have you done a correlation/whatever is called between the number of guns in a country and the # murders and/or violent crimes?
The attachment is a list of countries and their number of guns according to the Small Arms Survey which the antis can’t bitch about because it is a group on their side. I used this wikipedia link to [...]
I have to admit: I am really liking the trend my little demotivator has started, thanks to Borepatch (x2), Jay G., and Midwest Chick.
I am, however, slightly disappointed that no one seems to have caught on to – or at least commented on – the subtext in the second one…
Anywise, as I said in comments over at Borepatch’s, rights do not need a reason to be exercised, and to expand on [...]
… Guns and alcohol simply will not mix.
But moving on to more serious matters, it would appear as though the usual, useful idiots are trotting out the usual, useless arguments about ZOMG guns in bars. Color me surprised. However, just like here in Tennessee all those years ago, most of the arguments against allowing law-abiding, trained, and permitted individuals to carry firearms into establishments that serve alcohol are based on misdirection (the bill [...]
I know I have touched on this in the past, but it would seem as though now is a good time to refresh it in everyone’s minds.
I believe in freedom. Right up until your actions can be factually proven to detrimentally affect another person, against their will, in some specific and demonstrable fashion, you should be free to do whatever it is your little heart desires. This is not a matter of potentialities [...]
So imagine yourself on a mostly-deserted island, and once upon a time, you were given responsibility over 100 other people. Sometime in the past, some other group of people came, kidnapped, and murdered 50 of those people; you tried to fight them, but they were just too strong. In the process of the fight, that other group makes it abundantly clear that they want to kill all of you, and only did not do so [...]
A little while ago, I bemoaned the distinct and marked lack of logically-consistent individuals amongst the anti-rights nuts of America:
I feel like a modern-day Diogenes with his lamp, looking for a consistent man amongst the anti-rights nuts… and while the Internet provides one hell of a lot of wattage, I am not making a whole lot of progress.
… and that complaint has held true even to a few days back with the [...]
