“Resistance to sudden violence, for the preservation not only of my person, my limbs, and life, but of my property, is an indisputable right of nature which I have never surrendered to the public by the compact of society, and which perhaps, I could not surrender if I would.”
by John Adams

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 […]

if a hypothesis is wrong once

This is, at least nominally, a firearm-related weblog, but it is worth delving into politics every once in a while.

The topic of homosexual marriages has come up recently – understandable, given the associated Supreme Court case – and the usual useful idiots have crawled out of the woodwork proclaiming that we cousin-humping, gun-toting rednecks universally hate teh gayz.

Y’know, except not.

My position on homosexual marriage is quite simple:

First, […]

james yeager, helping the "gun control" extremists

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 […]

nuke his comment from orbit

… It is the only way to be sure*.

Everyone knows where I stand on open carry so there is no sense in rehashing that particular terrain, and given that position, it should be no surprise that I was a little snarky at commenter "Andy" over at Say Uncle when he referred to the recent Open Carry Weekend (…Which I managed to miss – bad gunblogger! Bad!) as […]

facts which do not fit the narrative are discarded

I love internally inconsistent people, no matter what their political or sociological leanings might or might not be; obviously, I would prefer them to be as far away from "my side" (whatever that means any more) as possible, but, regardless, without them I would not have nearly as much good material on this site as I do now.

Take, for example, Penny Bernath, writing on Twitter under the rather appropriate screenname of […]

"smoke and thunder" has burned itself out

People confuse me. Ok, that is not exactly the most earth-shattering of revelations out there, but consider: if one were starting a brand-spanking-new social media / social networking site that no one had ever heard of before, would you run around, insulting and demeaning those very people you are hoping to recruit to your system; or would you choose… a different path?

Yeah, me too. However, if one listens to the visionary genius (*cough*) […]

god must love the british

… Because the fact that some of them remember to breathe seems to be, frankly, a miracle*.

Dennis over at Dragon Leatherworks managed to get Better Half and I hooked on the new series Sherlock, which takes the eponymous main character and places him in modern times, complete with smart phones, once-Great Britain’s pervasive Big Brother surveillance society, modern laboratories (though Sherlock’s personal medical kit is cutely quaint), and all the […]

beats "practicing" on a controller

Thanks to the weather, I did not make it back out to the field this weekend (I finally got tired of tromping around in ridge-to-ridge mud), but it is becoming increasingly clear to me that the airsoft community is one that we are pro-rights advocates are overlooking to our own detriments, primarily through the perpetuation of pernicious stereotypes. While those generalities do have a basis in fact (like so many of them tend to), writing […]

open carry stops crime… again

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. […]

progress is good

Not to brag (ok… maybe a little), but back about two months ago when I started kung fu (and before I got into airsoft, though that has only been two weekends so far), I was 6’2” tall, weighed 167 pounds, and had about 10% body fat. 

Yesterday, with no change in our diet, I was still 6’2”, I weighed 160 pounds, and had about 8% body fat. 

Not too shabby for someone who […]

these posts almost write themselves

By now, you have almost undoubtedly heard about the 80+ people murdered in a shooting in Norway, and I would like to extend my heart-felt sympathies and prayers to the families and friends of those killed or wounded in this heinous act. 

Unfortunately, rather than leave it at a comment like that, the various anti-rights cultists across the world started spooling up their spin engines before the first body had […]

stereotypes are worth what you pay for them

And I dare say the “gun control”supporters of America are getting ripped off.

If you spend more than a little time browsing the black hole that is Twitter, you will see that the usual useful idiots amongst the anti-rights cultists are once again trying to peddle the myth that all firearm owners are universally white, male, and overweight.

I wonder what those narrow-minded hoplophobes would think of the two black couples and their black […]

how bigoted is the csgv?

As a reminder to my readers, the word “bigot” generally means, “a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one exhibiting intolerance, and animosity toward those of differing beliefs”.  This behavior is generally identified by a person’s refusal to accept or even acknowledge any information, facts, or figures that contradict or disprove their personal opinions; an overwhelming desire to dominate a conversation through the use of carefully-crafted insults, […]

just a helpful hint

There is one absolutely surefire way to lose any remaining credibility you might have had, and any respect from me you ever hoped to receive: 

Fail to take ownership of your actions. 

We are nothing if we are not men of our words, and deeds, and while there is absolutely no shame in apologizing for your actions (in fact, there may be a significant degree of honor to be retained when doing […]

dear eric heyl

I might care about your misogynistic bigotry if it was even loosely based in this thing we like to call “reality”. 

But it is not

So I do not. 

Instead, I will simply sit back and watch your ass get handed to you by a woman a fraction of your size who is already more capable, more self-reliant, more independent, and more an […]

quote of the day – joan peterson

I have spoken previously concerning how Joan Peterson is the face of “gun control” (though Colin Goddard is desperately trying to supplant her), how the majority of Joan’s arguments are based on inherently flawed logical fallacies, and how some of her positions are borderline disgusting in their flagrant blood-dancing, so today’s revelation should not no surprise for anyone. Specifically, Joan Peterson has no problem libeling […]

sensing a pattern

Has anyone else noticed that especially in the older Bonds, if James does not boink a woman (generally through her own unwillingness or the story simply not giving them the time), she typically ends up dead by the end of the movie?

Here is to the saving power of British secret agents in bed?

the agenda fails. again.

‘Bout 10 days back, I put up a post with four website’s names and four demographic data charts from Quantcast, and asked my readers to match up the former to the latter; in the end, only two of you really took a stab at the connections, but I guess I should have made it more difficult. For the sake of completeness, however, here is the rundown:

1. This weblog. 2. […]
