a welcome breath of fresh air

Any long-time participant in the ongoing debate surrounding "gun control" and the unjust abrogations of our basic, Constitutionally-protected human rights will be familiar with the phrase Reasoned Discourse, but for those newcomers to the field, allow me to give you a short-and-sweet summation of the idea.

Of late, and in the past, "gun control" supporters have been crying that they want to have a "debate" / "conversation" / "discussion" about the future of "gun […]

james yeager is a coward

… and a disgrace to the great state of Tennessee, unfortunately.

No, the title of this post does not stem from James Yeager’s questionable behavior during his time in Iraq – I was not there, and I cannot comment on it – but rather his recent behavior here, in these United States.

To begin with, James Yeager is voluntarily on-record as saying he will "break your f—–g back" if you call him a […]

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 […]

race-baiting bores me

For me, the whole Martin/Zimmerman case is functionally over – the incident is being investigated, and if there is sufficient evidence to indicate that a murder transpired*, I have every reason to believe that Zimmerman will be charged, and that is exactly the way the system is supposed to work.

On the other hand, the fallout from this case has just begun, and I shudder to think how far the ripples will travel.

the implied threats of "smoke and thunder"

It may not be the best reason. It may not even be a good reason. But one reason to keep on weblogging is the knowledge that your doing so makes people wish you were dead:

Yes, you read that right – apparently the pretentious proprietor of "Smoke & Thunder" is hoping that "some gun blogs and gun bloggers will do the right thing (i.e. kill themselves)". Looking past the question of how a […]

"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*) […]

the only thing worse than a threat

… Is an empty threat.

Around about a week ago, Jason A. Kilgore (aka "Baldr Odinson", his anti-rights alter-ego*) threatened Miguel of Gun Free Zone with legal action if Miguel did not take a picture down that he was using in accordance with fair use, and upon which Jason has no claims to copyright. Yeah. Wrap your head around that one.

After the initial back-and-forth where Jason clearly showed he did not have a clue […]

tellin’ riddles in the dark

Want to know the difference between “gun control” extremists and pro-rights activist in one easy-to-swallow lesson?  Behold. 

Brady Campaign Board Member, blood-dancer extraordinaire, arguable face of “gun control”, and eugenicist Joan Peterson (writing under the moniker “japete”) at the conclusion of a post abusively castigating pro-rights activists for daring to point out that the anti-rights cultists’ “candlelight vigils” will do nothing to reduce the number of “gun violence” victims (note: none of the links […]

quote of the day – ubu52

One of the more-common memes floating through the pro-rights weblogs is "why are liberals so violent?" (or the more-general "why are anti-rights advocates so violent?"); indeed, it seems as though every time we turn around, we get to read about yet another "left-wing nut" expressing, or, worse, acting upon, personal desires to inflict serious bodily harm, if not death, on other human beings. Hell, Bob S. was threatened with death-by-beating for daring to disagree with […]

the killing of jose guerena

I have held off on posting on the shooting (and apparent murder) of Jose Guerena for a variety of reasons, not the least of which are my abject fury over how the situation was handled, and my hope that some kind of mitigating information would eventually surface.

Well, my fury has not abated, and no information has been found to excuse the SWAT team from shooting at him 71 times and hitting him 22 […]

know them by their words

Why do I so adamantly fight “gun control” supporters almost whenever and wherever possible, even when they harass me and implicitly threaten my family and me?

Why have I taken to calling those individuals “anti-rights cultists”?

Conveniently enough, those two questions have the same answer, provided in a as he quotes from Guns, Democracy, and the Insurrectionist Idea*:

Recognize Insurrectionism as a threat to the entire progressive movement. Too many political progressives […]

the dustbin of history awaits

A person who is observant and/or skilled can always tell when other people are desperate – used car salesmen, poker players, and con men all do that on a daily basis. Every human being has "tells", and the trick is just correlating them with behavior, a trick that is largely simplified by most "tells" being scant more than variations on themes that are common throughout society.

By the same token, organizations – being comprised of […]

how not to be a victim

We spend a lot of time talking about firearms and self-defense and rights and tactics and considerations and legalities and all the rest of that good nonsense on a regular basis here at "walls of the city", but the simple truth of the matter is that the most valuable, most important, and most capable tool for ensuring your own safety and that of your family resides behind your two eyes. You could be naked and […]

the bullying troll known as the csgv

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 […]

csgv lies. again. still. constantly.

Helpful hint to Michael K. Beard: giving Ladd Everitt the keys to the Twitter account for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence* might have been the worst idea ever, unless, of course, you want your organization to look increasingly worse every day.

In the very recent past, Ladd has directly attacked a "gun violence" survivor for daring to speak from experience, he has expressed his bigotry for the entire world to see (through your […]

the reasoned discourse of the csgv

Has anyone else noticed that the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has posted all their various vicious attacks and malicious threats against firearm owners on their Facebook page, where you have “Like” their malignant organization in order to comment on the posts? 

In short, they are practicing “Reasoned Discourse” of the purest variety… either you agree with them, and their vindictive hatred of pro-rights advocates, or you are not permitted you voice your opinion.  […]

burning responsibilities

Yesterday, I received this email from Patrick:

Am I wrong in this? Look at my comments on her site.

http://thelibertyzone.com/2011/04/07/did-he-think-there-would-be-no-consequences.aspx

I agree that he was incredibly stupid. I disagree that he is responsible for the deaths of the U.N. people and any soldiers. We can’t walk around on egg shells based on what others may do… right?

I value your opinion so I kinda wanted to see what you thought…. her site, your site.. […]

putting a face to the cause

Well, I think it is fair to say that Joan Peterson, Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership board member and weblog writer under the moniker of “Japete”, has finally gone of the deep end. Honestly, it took longer than I was expecting.

In the space of two days, Joan banned Sean Sorrentino for his heinous use of facts to support his argument, and then turns around and speciously accuses him of harassment and […]

compare and contrast

We have talked about this before, but it bears repeating as often as the opportunity presents itself.

Anti-rights nuts have a particular propensity for ironically playing the “victim card” by claiming to have received threatening, abusive, or otherwise aggressive comments, but there is a problem with that habit: invariably, these anti-rights nuts also practice Reasoned Discourse (TM) and can therefore claim whatever their little hearts desire without anyone being able to verify or substantiate […]
