To provide a bit of a humorous counterpoint to the previous post, do the failures known as the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership or the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Ownership have anything that TripAdvisor could actually rate?
Because the National Rifle Association does:
The Certificate of Excellence honors business that consistently earn top ratings from TripAdvisor travelers.
With a rating of 4.5, National Firearms Museum has earned a place among [...]
No, “may issue” is not dead, and it probably will not even be going away in Maryland*, but this recent summary judgment for Woollard v. Sheridan is just chock-a-block full of interesting and all-too useful quotes… Like this one:
For all of these reasons, the Court finds that the right to bear arms is not limited to the home. The signposts left by recent Supreme Court and Fourth Circuit case law all point to [...]
There is nothing I can – or should – add to this:
You, you who hate guns, you gave me nothing.
All that was offered me was a life of fear, of resentment, of bitterness, of dependance…
The gun community has offered me hope and strength, and courage.
They have taught me to have belief in myself.
They have asked nothing of me in return and, [...]
I cannot say as though I know a single thing about Tactical Advantage Corp based out of Corryton, TN (except that I absolutely hate webpages that have repeating noises running in the background), but they work with Coal Creek Armory and Parafrog, so they cannot be all bad.
More to the point, by way of DealChicken (a Groupon / Living Social analog), T.A.C. Academy is offering a Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit course for all [...]
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, [...]
If you live in the greater Knoxville metropolitan area, you should do yourself a favor and head to the brand new Academy Sports + Outdoors store that just opened at 145 Moss Grove Boulevard (right across Kingston Pike from the Home Depot by Cedar Bluff).
The store is, quite simply, massive, and has pretty much everything you could every want from grilling to hunting to running to camping to fishing to Lord alone knows [...]
C. J. Chivers‘s The Gun just got reviewed on Woot.com, and fairly positively at that.
If that does not constitute another example of how we are winning, I do not know what would.
I have mentioned Chivers’ work in the past, but this also serves as a reminder that I need to type up my own review of it as well at some point… The short-and-sweet, however, is, “You need to read this, [...]
Regular readers of this weblog may remember that my father came to the conclusion that he should start lawfully bearing arms after reading a particularly bigoted, narrow-minded, anti-Constitutional article penned by Rob Woutat, a "community columnist" for the Kitsap Sun. Suffice to say, I was quite amused at how an obvious anti-rights cultist had successfully alienated a recent fence-sitter, not only to the point of owning firearms, but also to the point of carrying them, [...]
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 [...]
Around about a year ago, I gave my father a Mossberg 500 that I won for being best of the worst in a vaguely IDPA-ish shooting match. In its original configuration, it was a pretty standard shotgun – wooden furniture, stupid-long barrel, minimal sights, etc. – but when my parents came to visit a few months back, he brought along an 18.5" barrel that we swapped out and operationally tested, so now we are getting [...]
Simple: a pro-rights weblogger who has only been writing for about a year now wrote up a post documenting the growth of concealed handgun permits and decrease in firearm-related crime, he sent it to a reporter, and she took the ball and ran with it:
Compared to last year, almost 33,000 more people can carry a concealed handgun in North Carolina. During that same time period, the crimes involving handguns has decreased.
Permit holders [...]
Predictably, Uncle beat me to it, but here is what I have.
A few weeks back, Mast General put up some “gunbuster” stickers on their stores’ doors. I sent them a variant of my usual TFA-based email, and heard nary a response. Reader Adam had much better luck. His original email follows:
My wife and I have been shopping at Mast for many years. We were registered at Mast in Asheville for [...]
While the anti-rights cultists are busy stalking anyone who dares to disagree with them, we are busy winning:
So the 2011 legislative session in Indiana was pretty good to gun owners. We went six for six, with everything from improved preemption to a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law for employers. That’s right, it’s illegal for employers to discriminate against you for exercising your constitutional rights here in Indiana!
To flesh out the point even [...]
We must be moving up in the gunblogosphere here at “walls of the city” – we just got this very interesting press release emailed to us from a very interesting corporation:
Silencerco to be Featured on Discovery Channel’s MythBusters
Top designer and manufacturer of gun silencers and suppressors will be the highlight of the next Discovery Channel’s MythBusters episode airing May 11that 9 PM.
West Valley City, UT (DATE) – Lovers of [...]
When you get right down to it, your average Mark 1 Mod 0 anti-rights cultist is nothing but an attention whore – they employ the tragedies of victims to attract and sway public attention, they largely refuse to engage in any conversation they cannot control or overpower, they rely on logical fallacies to support their positions and themselves, they desperately claim victimhood while simultaneously attacking the rights of law-abiding citizens, and so forth. This attention-whoring [...]
