GUNS: Wager on these fine upstanding misunderstood gentlemen

Friday, March 27, 2015

That’s why you need to be armed. Because the bad guys aren’t scared of an occupied home.


And, what do you bet that these fine upstanding misunderstood gentlemen have (1) a rap sheet; or (2) on “parole”?

Argh squared!

RECOMMENDATION: Shooter needs more range time; three got away.

GUNS: Why shouldn’t Americans be able to defend themselves?

Guns and the New York Times: Why shouldn’t Americans be able to defend themselves?
By Dr. John R. Lott Jr. Published February 24, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Gun control advocates just can’t accept the fact that concealed handgun permit holders are incredibly law-abiding.  The New York Times’ recent attack on permit holders is typical.  It is filled with triple-counting of legitimate self-defense cases. Murders or suicides by permit holders are blamed on guns, even when no gun was involved.  In point of fact, permit holders are incredibly law-abiding.  Some new evidence puts things in perspective.

*** end quote ***

Indeed, why does the Gooferment get to decide who can defend themselves?

And, permit holders are more law abiding than police!

That’s a interesting factoid.

Of course, the liberal media spins, slants, and misreports to propagandize “We, The Sheeple”.

That’s to be expected.

Hence, one becomes extremely cynical of everything and everybody.

GUNS: The Best Gun For Women? One she’ll have with her to use

Best Gun For Women – Some Things To Consider

# – # – # – # – # 

IF you’re afraid, then some practice should help.

IF you think you’ll never need it, then I pray you’re right.

IF you think no one should ever have a gun, then you just don’t understand that it’s a dangerous world out there.

“Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose

GUNS: Loaded weapons BEHIND people on the firing line?

Friday, February 20, 2015

‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle never had chance to draw gun, Texas Ranger says
Published February 12, 2015

*** begin quote ***

The body of Chris Kyle, the former sniper killed at a rural Texas gun range in 2013, was located by rangers wearing a loaded 1911-style semiautomatic pistol that was still holstered and with its safety on, a Texas Ranger testified on Thursday.

*** and ***

Tim Moore, an attorney for Routh, said Kyle and Littlefield’s text exchange shows how Routh was spiraling out of control. He told jurors that Routh was suffering from severe mental strain that day and thought he needed to kill the two or they would turn on him.

*** end quote ***

In another earlier report, it was asserted that both men were shot from behind.

I don’t know how the range worked there, but I know how some ranges in NJ and VA operate.

There is a range safety officer, who’s watching what happens. And loaded weapons are NOT allowed BEHIND people on the firing line.

There’s no doubt that is NOT a perfect solution.

But a loaded weapon BEHIND two experienced shooters would have not gone unnoticed.

Just an observation.

GUNS: The bias against guns

The bias against guns: What the media isn’t telling you
By Dr. John R. Lott Jr.Published January 09,

*** begin quote ***

Weren’t these stories equally newsworthy? To save a stranger, a permit holder stood up to four attackers. Without the pastor’s concealed handgun permit, there could have been a mass shooting in a crowded church. That would surely have gotten massive national news coverage, but the pastor stopping the attack wasn’t considered a story.

The lopsided coverage gives Americans a skewed view of guns.

*** and ***

I can’t find another similar case of a child accidentally firing a permit holder’s concealed handgun. For decades, there have been millions of permit holders. Today, there are 12 million. It will probably be a very long time before there’s another case like this.

*** and ***

Unfortunately, despite the family’s claim to the contrary, the extremely rare tragedy with Veronica Rutledge likely arose because she stored her gun improperly.  If she had a semi-automatic pistol, as some reports indicate, it would have been impossible for a two-year-old to have the strength to pull the slide back on the gun to chamber the first round. If she had a revolver or most pistols, it seems exceedingly unlikely that child would have switched off the safety.  Thus, she had either already chambered the first round in the gun herself and/or switched off the safety,  thus negating the gun’s safety features.

*** end quote ***


When I read the report, I knew that it would “lead the bleed”.

And, equally as well, I KNEW it was a “User error”.

Guns just don’t “go off”!

GUNS: Companies that ban concealed carry

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

*** begin quote ***

These companies have apparently forgotten the numerous criminal shootings that have taken place in commercial settings, many of which could have been cut short if a customer with a gun had been able to respond. In fact, the Texas concealed carry law was passed in response to a 1991 shooting in the Luby’s Cafeteria in Killeen, in which 22 lives were taken.

I won’t be spending my money with them.

They have right to restrict who they will do business with.

And, so do I.

Unfortunately, some of these I really like.

But, like my list of Hollywood “celebrities”, “from my cold dead hands”.

GUNS: Michael Bloomberg’s hypocrisy

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Published on Sep 29, 2014

Kimberly Weeks, a survivor of violent crime, is standing up to anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg and his gun control efforts. Listen to her call Michael Bloomberg out on his hypocrisy and say, “Mr. Bloomberg you do not have the right to tell me how to defend myself.“

# – # – # – # – #   

Absolutely, women should be trained and armed.

But the bad guys down like the varmints they are.

Sorry, but I’m a little L libertarian pro-choice pro-life zealot. 

No one has the right to agress on another human being.
