GUNS: Pretend that their assault weapon ban never existed

The “Assault Weapon” Rebellion
Townhall Magazine | Apr 12, 2014

*** begin quote ***

The government of Connecticut can’t threaten the citizenry with criminal charges. They’ve already willingly decided to become felons en masse. The government can’t threaten the citizenry with force. They’re both grossly outnumbered and outgunned. The government can’t offer an amnesty. It would only reinforce how little power the government has over a rebellious citizenry.

The only realistic option is for the government of Connecticut to pretend that their assault weapon ban never existed. To admit it exists, and that they can do nothing to enforce it, would reveal that the emperor and his court have no clothes.

A nearly identical problem is brewing next door in the much larger, more populous state of New York, thanks to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s hastily-passed NY SAFE Act. That law demands that New Yorkers register their semi-automatic “assault rifles” with the government by April 15.

*** end quote ***

From my cold dead hands.

Why should the people fear the Gooferment?

They are a joke. 

A very dangerous joke. 

Look at speed limits. People are withdrawing consent in all sorts of little ways.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

And don’t forget the movie quote:

“Yes. In the end, you will walk out. Because 100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.” — movie Gandhi (1983)

Substitute “politicians and bureaucrats” and “gun owners” and that’s what’s happening here.

GUN: “stupidity with a firearm

SEPTEMBER 16, 2013

Aaron Alexis, Suspect In Washington Navy Yard Shooting, Was Once Arrested For Shooting Bullet Into Neighbor’s Home

*** begin quote ***

The suspect in today’s deadly shooting at the Washington Navy Yard was once arrested for discharging a firearm into the ceiling of his Texas residence, according to police records.

Aaron Alexis, 34, was arrested in September 2010 after his upstairs neighbor called Fort Worth cops to report that a bullet had been shot into her apartment. The round apparently first traveled through her home’s floor and then the ceiling.

[UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF PIECE: Alexis was also arrested in mid-2004 for shooting out the tires of a car owned by a construction worker who purportedly “mocked him.” Alexis told cops that an anger-fueled “black out” promted the shooting. Alexis’s father told investigators that his son suffered from “anger management problems” that were related to post-traumatic stress disorder, perhaps connected to his involvement in rescue work following the September 11 terror attacks.]

The woman, whose name is not listed in a Fort Worth Police Department report, said that she was “terrified” of Alexis, who had previously confronted her about making too much noise. The woman, who was “visibly shaken up” when questioned by police, said that she believed the shooting was “intentional.”

*** end quote ***

I don’t understand. 

He should have been arrested.

If for nothing more than “stupidity with a firearm”.

If convicted, he’d have been barred from possession.

Yet, now we’ll endure more “gun control”.

In realist, what genius decided it was a good idea to prevent the military from packin on a base?

… … <cue the Jeopardy theme> … …

Bill Clinton!

Argh!

[Personally, I'm praying for the victims. Victims of Gooferment stupidity.]

By revealing the names of permit holders, the newspaper effectively told criminals what homes had no armed defense.

RANT: The Federalists and the Antifederalists?

Sunday, June 30, 2013

http://ncc-1776.org/tle2013/tle726-20130623-01.html

Re: “Neale’s Weekly Gun Rant Volume 14″ by Neale Osborn

*** begin quote ***

Part way down he stated, in pertinent part:

There is only ONE way to remove the 2nd Amendment. And you’d think a man claiming to be a lawyer would know that. It’s called “Pass another Amendment”.

Um, no.

There is NO WAY to remove any part of the Bill of Rights, without nullifying the entire constitution and the republic that it purports to create and define.

The constitution was ratified under a binding contract between the Federalists and the Antifederalists, to the effect that the ratification was conditional upon the passage of a Bill of Rights. Therefor, if any part of the Bill of Rights is violated by any means, and that includes its repeal by a new “amendment”, then the whole contract is null and void.

If the contract is void, the ratification is void. 
If the ratification is void, the constitution is void. 
If the constitution is void, the republic is void. 
If the republic is void, there is no “legitimate government” in any legal sense. 
If there is no “legitimate government”, there is, de jure, political freedom in the territory previously governed by the former republic.

Since the bill of rights has been violated by direct act of the congress, the presidents and the courts — the ratification contract, the constitution and the republic are null and void, in any legal sense. No new “amendment” violating the bill of rights or the ratification contract is now needed to produce this result.

The argument form is modus ponens. The conclusion is inescapable, to my mind.

So, in legal contemplation, the part of North America between Canada and Mexico, the Alaska Territory, the former Kingdom of Hawaii and the Crown Colonies are, de jure, in a state of anarchy and political freedom, while being illegally occupied by Imperial Usa, a foreign military power.

For such a state of affairs to transit from de jure to de facto, it only requires that the american militia remove t he invading pretender-government now throwing its weight around.

I recommend 5GW strategy.

Good Hunting,
Michael Bradshaw

“Inasmuch as the Constitution was never signed, nor agreed to, by anybody, as a contract, and therefore never bound anybody, and is now binding upon nobody; and is, moreover, such an one as no people can ever hereafter be expected to consent to, except as they may be forced to do so at the point of the bayonet, it is perhaps of no importance what its true legal meaning, as a contract, is. Nevertheless, the writer thinks it proper to say that, in his opinion, the Constitution is no such instrument as it has generally been assumed to be; but that by false interpretations, and naked usurpations, the government has been made in practice a very widely, and almost wholly, different thing from what the Constitution itself purports to authorize. He has heretofore written much, and could write much more, to prove that such is the truth. But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.” Lysander Spooner (1808-1887), No Treason (1870) http://praxeology.net/LS-NT-6.htm#no.6

Santa Monica Shooter Built Illegal Weapon After Gov’t Denied Him Firearm
New details were released Thursday about the deadly rampage and the 23-year-old gunman who carried it out
By Samantha Tata | Friday, Jun 14, 2013 | Updated 12:03 PM PDT

*** begin quote ***

John Zawahri, 23, was denied a firearm by the Justice Department in 2011. But he was able to obtain the right components to build a semiautomatic rifle that he then used in a deadly shooting spread that left five victims killed. An apologetic goodbye note was found on his body after he was gunned down by police. Beverly White reports for the NBC4 News at 11 p.m. on June 13, 2013.

*** and ***

The gunman in a fatal shooting spree in Santa Monica tried to legally buy a firearm in 2011 but was denied by the Justice Department, the city’s police chief announced Thursday evening at a news conference that revealed more details about the events that led up to the deadly rampage.

Investigators believe John Zawahri, who suffered from mental illness, built a semi-automatic rifle capable of firing .223-caliber ammunition using parts he bought from various sources around the country, Santa Monica Police Sgt. Richard Lewis said.

Officials would not say why Zawahri’s quest to obtain a firearm two years ago was halted. Despite the rejection, Zawahri was able to obtain “an array” of high-capacity magazines that he used in a homemade weapon.

When “Zero-Tolerance” Makes “Zero-Sense”
Posted on June 14, 2013

*** begin quote ***

We’ve been reporting very regularly on ridiculous cases involving over-zealous school officials misinterpreting and wrongly enforcing “zero-tolerance” rules.

In March, we reported on an outrageous case of a seven-year-old Baltimore, Md. student who, according to a March 2, Daily Caller article, was suspended for two days for the nefarious act of shaping a breakfast pastry into what his teacher thought looked like a gun. Yes, a breakfast pastry.

According to the young student, he was eating the strawberry pastry during snack time and was biting off pieces in an attempt to shape it into a mountain. Apparently, the teacher thought the student’s handiwork instead looked like a gun, and escorted him to the principal’s office for prompt disciplinary action.

In a recent follow-up story, the Daily Caller reported on more bad news for the young victim of over-zealous school administrators.

*** end quote ***

How dumb are we?

The Sheeple and Clovers don’t get it.

And, the Gooferment Skrules are mindless idiots as well.

There’s a reason that teachers are the lowest rung on the academic ladder.

Those who can do; those who can’t teach; those who can’t teach, teach teaching. Obviously there’s another tier: those who can teach teaching and have no common sense become school bureaucrats!

Why torture children with this type of a system. Remember the Jack in the box model comes from Prussia. The objective was to make cannon fodder for the Army, good factory workers, and a pliable underclass that could be led easily by the elite!

Remind me again where the rich and politicians send their children?

GUNS: Use handguns to fight our way to a rifle

AR-15 Rifle – the King of Home Defense
by Paul Merkel

*** begin quote ***

When considering the defense of your home against intruders there are a few question you must ask yourself and realities you must face.

Before we delve into the hardware aspect, we need to engage in a very simple question and answer exercise. That is, what is our legitimately anticipated problem and what is the most practical and effective solution.

Tough Questions: What is the Threat?

First and foremost, when you consider protecting your home, what is the anticipated threat? Naturally, we are concerned with the stereotypical burglar, the lone criminal. Professional criminals will generally “burgle” your home when you are out. The most dangerous threat is what we’ll call the “home invasion”.

One, two, three or more armed vermin force their way into an occupied home intent on robbery, rape, and potentially murder. While rare, the threat is real enough to send chills down the spine of any home owner.

*** end quote ***

My paternal grandmother had a rifle hung over her fireplace until she went into a nursing home in the late 60′s. When I asked her if it was loaded, she replied: “Weren’t no good if it weren’t!” I knew from other family members that she’d used it when she traveled the Oregon Trail.

So do we need such an attitude today.

Sad to say I think so.

The Liberalism and “Secular Progressive” society of post-WW2 has create a parasite class that has no fear. Caught and sent to prison, they come out with new criminal skills, physically stronger, and with a worse attitude than they went in with.

Every good man and woman should have access to Sam Colt’s equalizer!

Like the bumpersticker says: “When seconds count, the police are minutes away” and “You are your own First Responder”!

I have mine. I hope you have yours. Mostly I hope it’s like insurance and we all never need it.

GUNS: Evidence for Confiscation

Evidence for Confiscation: 5 Examples That Show the Threat Is Real

by S.H. Blannelberry
Guns.com

*** begin quote ***

Gun control activists do not want to confiscate our guns. Really. Just trust them about it. They don’t. Instead, they just want to pass simple, common sense and reasonable gun laws that have nothing to do with confiscating lawfully owned property. Trust them. They really, really don’t want to take our guns. Really.

As President Barack Obama said on the campaign trail in 2008, “I believe in the Second Amendment. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away … But I am not going to take your guns away. So if you want to find an excuse not to vote for me, don’t use that one because it just ain’t true. It ain’t true.”

See, it just ain’t true, like the President said. No lawmaker or politician will propose legislation that will confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens. Really. In fact, every gun control supporter is a huge fan of the right to keep and bear arms. Really.

A Brief and Bloody History of Gun Control
by Anthony Gucciardi
StoryLeak

*** begin quote ***

Painted signs reading ‘gun free zone’ and gun control legislation that really only affects law-abiding citizens does not prevent mass shootings, as we have seen evidenced by more than one shooting incident. Both the Aurora shooting at the Colorado movie theater dubbed the ‘Batman shooting’ and the most recent Sandy Hook incident in Connecticut both occurred in areas with heavy gun regulation. Amazingly, the Batman shooter actually traveled to the one movie theater in the area that actually did not permit lawful citizens to carry a concealed weapon. According to Dr. John R. Lott in an interview with Newsmax,

”…the one he picked was the only one of those movie theaters that banned people taking permit-concealed handguns into that theater.”

*** end quote ***

Again, these killers are crazy, but not stupid.

I don’t understand why the victims are not litigating with the movie theater for that policy putting them in harm’s way.

Like the Luby’s story, law abiding people obey laws. Criminals don’t.

Seems as simple as 1+1=2 … …

GUNS: Defensive use of a gun gets near ZERO coverage

Examiner.com Texas woman shoots wanted serial robber, possible rapist; Story ignored by MSM DEFENSIVE GUN USE  APRIL 11, 2013  BY: JENNIFER CRUZ

*** begin quote ***

Early Sunday morning, April 7, in Lumberton, Texas (http://www.examiner.com /topic/texas) three robbers kidnapped and robbed one woman, but when they moved on to rob two more women they were met with an unexpected surprise.

According to a report by 12 News Now (http://www.12newsnow.com/story/21902660/beaumont-police-arrest-man-they- say-is-responsible-for-robbery-spree) , one of the would-be victims brought their robbing spree to a halt when she shot one of them. The three robbers, identified as 21-year-old Scott Willis, Jr., 21-year-old Malik Washington, and 21-year-old Ariel Malveaux, all of Beaumont, have apparently been targeting women as victims of robberies since last month.

In the first robbery which happened on Sunday morning, the three abducted a woman at gunpoint, and forced her to drive to an ATM to withdraw cash. There has also been an unconfirmed report that she was sexually assaulted.

In the second robbery attempt, the three approached two women and demanded money. One of the women was able to retrieve her handgun and shot Willis in the abdomen, reportedly puncturing his liver. Willis is being held in the intensive care unit at Christus St. Elizabeth hospital where he is being treated for the gunshot wound. Upon his release, Willis will be charged with aggravated robbery. Washington and Malveaux are both being held by Lumberton police on aggravated robbery charges. Washington also faces a kidnapping charge.

*** and ***

One would think that a story of this woman’s courage and quick thinking which ultimately led to the capture of three violent serial robbers would be a big story that would catch the attention of mainstream media. However, it has not. At the time this article was published, there were only eight reports of this incident (https://www.google.com/#hl=en&sclient=psy- ab&q=woman+shoots+robber+lumberton+texas&oq=woman+shoots+robber+lumberton+texas& gs_l=hp.3…18800.21573.1.22579.10.10.0.0.0.6.872.3850.0j3j2j2j0j2j1.10.0…0.0…1c.1.8.psy-ab.boc1zkCf2Rw&pbx=1& bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.45107431,d.b2I&fp=f541d26e5940a762&biw=1366&bih=664) , all which include local media outlets, local conservative political websites, a forum, a blog and an individual’s Facebook page, who happens to be the brother-in-law of the first woman who was robbed.

However, when a 4-year-old accidentally shoots a 6-year-old, the media is sure to exploit it everywhere, with more than 17 pages (https://www.google.com/#q=4+year+old+shot&hl=en&ei=hUFnUfjlCoeU2wWygIH4CQ&start=0&sa=N&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&amp; bvm=bv.45107431,d.b2I&fp=f541d26e5940a762&biw=1366&bih=664) of stories covering the incident, including many mainstream media outlets.

In addition, the big story reported by local media seems to be that the police caught these criminals, giving very little, if any, credit to the woman who actually shot one of them, which ultimately resulted in the apprehension of all three.

Is there bias in media reporting which compliments an anti-gun agenda? Voice your opinions below.

*** end quote ***

Sure there IS a big anti-gun bias.

“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

“God created men and women, but Sam Colt made them equal!” Quote inspired by Sam Colt

Wishing that the world wasn’t a dangerous place will do nothing but increase the body count.

Capital punishment doesn’t seem to deter bad behavior, armed victims seem to put a big crimp in it. Not mention a big hole in a vital body part. I recommend that women aim just below the center of mass. Let the recoil bring it up to the kill zone.

If a kick there hurts, imagine getting it blown away.

That should solve the problem very quickly.

Note that not everyone has to be packing. Just enough so that it turns a “sure thing” into “risky business”.

Three minutes of simple wisdom on “gun control” aka “victim disarmament”!

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

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .”

“Yes. In the end, you will walk out. Because 100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.” — movie Gandhi (1983)

The D.C. police investigation of NBC hotshot David Gregory for waving around an empty ammo magazine on “Meet the Press” easily proves two things. First, D.C.’s “ammunition control” laws are ridiculous. But more importantly, once again, we find the arrogance of the national press knows no boundaries.

Let us stipulate that this kind of law is just plain stupid. Empty ammo magazines are less threatening than mosquitoes. The point is, however, that liberals like David Gregory do subscribe to this kind of idiotic law — for everyone else.

Was Gregory so ignorant that he didn’t know he was breaking a D.C. law? Nope. We learned NBC contacted the D.C. police and asked for permission to wave the props, and the cops said no. Then Gregory did it anyway. So not only did he believe he was above the law, he broke it so he could produce maximum buzz for his Sunday show.

Not only are they above the law — stupid or otherwise — but they rub our noses in it.

Argh!

GUNS: Guns are NOT the problem; the lack of them is!

Friday, December 14, 2012

As a pro-life little Libertarian, I can NOT imagine what these people are going through. And, it’s at times like this that there is an over-reaction to “fix” the problem by restricting law-abiding people’s rights.

Tragic. But that is what happens when you create a “gun free zone”. In the military, it’s called a target rich environment. Every adult in that school was disarmed and unable to defend themselves or the children.

The Israelis had the same problem with Kibbutz schools being attacked until they started letting armed grandparents volunteer as school security. The killings stopped immediately. Turns out cranky old grandparent are perfect “school security officers”.

Someday we will wise up.

Dear Members of our Sandy Hook Family,

Our district will be implementing a security system in all elementary schools as part of our ongoing efforts to ensure student safety. As usual, exterior doors will be locked during the day. Every visitor will be required to ring the doorbell at the front entrance and the office staff will use a visual monitoring system to allow entry. Visitors will still be required to report directly to the office and sign in. If our office staff does not recognize you, you will be required to show identification with a picture id. Please understand that with nearly 700 students and over 1000 parents representing 500 SHS families, most parents will be asked to show identification.

Doors will be locked at approximately 9:30 a.m. Any student arriving after that time must be walked into the building and signed in at the office. Before that time our regular drop-off procedures will be in place. I encourage all parents to have their children come to school and return home on the bus and to remain in school for the entire school day. The beginning and ending of our school day are also important instructional times and therefore we want all our students to reap the benefits of full participation in our program.

We need your help and cooperation for our system to work effectively. Our office staff is handling multiple tasks. Though they will work diligently to help you into the building as quickly as possible, there may be a short delay until someone can view you on the handset and allow you to come in electronically. There are times during the day when office personnel are on the telephone, addressing student concerns, or in the copy room; there are other times when only one person is in the front office. Please help our staff by identifying yourself and provide your child’s name.

Keep in mind we will be following our district guidelines which may need revision once we test the system.

Please know your involvement continues to be critical to our school’s effectiveness and your child’s success. We continue to encourage and value your presence in our classrooms and are counting on your cooperation with the implementation of this safety initiative.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Hochsprung

Guess the “new security regime” didn’t work so well. But, I am sure it did give the parents a false sense of security.

Argh!

Gooferment is rarely the answer and is often the source of the problem.

In most of these shootings, the teachers and staff are unarmed. The maintenance people are unarmed. The cafeteria people are unarmed.

(Never mind that the children are unarmed. In Israeli, mature children are packing heat. I’d trust youngsters to protect themselves. Too bad there wasn’t a drug gang in this school; they could have protected the children. Argh!)

The bad guy, or guys, always seems to have a equipment malfunction, stop to reload, or turn in a different direction. We all saw that video in Florida of the old coot when the robber turned away, pulled out a pop gun (small caliber pocket pistol) and started blazing away. Did convince the thug to head for the hills.

We allow the school maintenance person to walk around the school with knives, saws, and power tools. What’s wrong with one more tool? “Hey, Mike or Michelle, bring your Colt 45 to work and if you see any two legged varmints shoot at kids, take them out. We’ll reimburse you for the bullets.” Argh!!!

We saw the one teacher pulling a kid into her class room. I’d trust her with a tool. She could put all the children in a corner and she covers the door. Anything coming through that looks like a threat; empty. Reload and repeat. Mother Bears defend their cubs better than we as a species do!

Why do we have Gofferment Skrules again?

These training grounds just teach everyone to be sheep. SOOOooo let’s sprinkle a few sheepdogs in the herd. Make it exciting to be a criminal. Wonder how they’ll react to some return fire. Bet they’ll move on to easier targets. Like police stations. We all know that cops are terrible shots.

OH, and by the way, we have to indemnify all these volunteers against lawsuits by criminals. Stupid system, criminal breaks the law and can sue the victim for resisting. Where’s Judge Judy applying the “clean hands” doctrine?

GUNS: Bringing a gun to a knife fight

KNIFE-WIELDING HOME INTRUDER BREAKS INTO WRONG HOME, GREETED BY .40 CAL HANDGUN

Posted on November 27, 2012 at 11:52pm by Jason Howerton

*** begin quote ***

A homeowner in Grand Prairie, Texas shot a knife-wielding home intruder after the suspect shattered a side window to gain entry into the home, KXAS-TV reports.

The homeowner, who has not been identified, was reportedly on the phone with 911 operators when he shot 21-year-old Gilberto Banderas. The shooting occurred at around 2:30 p.m. after the sound of breaking glass prompted the homeowner to get his .40 caliber handgun.

The suspect, Banderas, was shot in the stomach. As it turns out, police discovered he lives just blocks away from the home he attempted to break into. In other words, he apparently tried, and failed, to rob his neighbor.

*** and ***

“During the conversation with him, we could hear him yelling, ‘You came at me with a knife,’” Grand Prairie detective Lyle Gensler said. “We responded within about a minute and 30 seconds.”

*** end quote ***

Note for the unarmed, dial 911 and die.

Critique of the shooting: The suspect was still alive.

The military taught me to keep pulling the trigger until nothing moved.

I’ve heard that advice often repeated.

Even if the bullets are going into the floor and ceiling, no one in their right mind wants to be down range of a loon with a gun and is using it.

Critique of the shooting: Good dhot to the center of mass — the belly.

Hope I never have to do it. Hope no one ever has to do it.

But the best way to stop crime is get rid of few of the criminals.

Make getting caught by the police an unlikely outcome.

GUNS: 12-Year-Old Girl 1, Home Invader 0

12-Year-Old Girl Shoots Intruder During Home Invasion In Bryan County
Posted: Oct 18, 2012 7:21 PM EDT Updated: Oct 19, 2012 3:19 PM EDT

The bullet hit the intruder, who deputies identified as 32-year-old Stacey Jones. He took off but did not get far before officers took him down. The bullet hit the intruder, who deputies identified as 32-year-old Stacey Jones. He took off but did not get far before officers took him down.

BRYAN COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A 12-year-old girl took matters into her own hands during a home invasion in southeast Oklahoma.

It happened on Wednesday when the girl was home alone. She told police a stranger rang the doorbell, then went around to the back door and kicked it in. She called her mom, Debra St. Clair, who told her to get the family gun, hide in a closet and call 911.

*** and ***

“And what we understand right now, he was turning the doorknob when she fired through the door,” said the Bryan County Undersheriff Ken Golden.

*** end quote ***

While I’d NEVER fault any woman who survives this type of incident, I don’t firing through the door is the best solution.

I’d think you need to identify your target.

It does proven the difficulty of asking anyone to shoot another human eyeball to eyeball. 

We can assume that this is not a handgun. Hence not the ideal weapon to use from a closet.

Her Dad will have to instruct her about the rule of thumb that says “pull until it clicks”.

Other than that, I think she did great!

GUNS: Common in mass shootings is the shooter is a nut!

Guns, Psychopaths, Training, and Left Wing Bluster by Bill O’Connell on August 28, 2012

*** begin quote ***

No, what is common in these mass shootings is that the shooter is a nut job. Page was a white supremacist crackpot; Jared Loughner in  Tucson was known to be off his rocker for at least six years before the shooting, which by the way made it illegal to buy a gun but the gun laws didn’t stop him; the Colorado movie shooter was also seeing mental health professionals; in the Virginia Tech shooting, it was the same story, but in our PC world they couldn’t force him to get counseling. Nowhere in her article, nor anywhere else in the main stream media do they talk about the real problem: figuring out how to keep dangerous psychopaths off the street before they snap and kill someone.

*** end quote *** 

Yes, guns are just tools.

And, there’s never a kop around when you need them.

FLASH: Mad Gunman 1 NYPD 10; and who’s more dangerous?

Bloomberg Confirms: One Dead, Bystanders Accidentally Shot By Police In Workplace Shooting
Posted: August 24, 2012

*** begin quote ***

In the gunfire on the street between Jeffrey Johnson and the NYPD officers, seven men and two women are said to have been hit, all are likely to survive their injuries.

*** end quote ***

On one private club / gun range I frequent, the Range Safety Officer (and, there has to be one on duty for the range to be open) is required by club policy to announce “LEO on the line” so that those on the line can retire to safety. And, the backup Assistant Range Safety Officer comes to the line to observe the LEO or LEOs on the line. Note the club’s ONLY THREE accidents have been when LEOs were involved. A regular member is ejected and loses his deposit if they or their guest violates a safety rule.

Further, most gun owners know that the cops don’t practice enough to maintain proficiency. Unlike the Marines and the Military Police who practice a lot.

So why are we surprise when civilians get hurt when the kops “protect and serve”?

GUNS: Would Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia say the same thing about “free speech”?

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/07/29/scalia-opens-door-for-gun-control-legislation/

Scalia opens door for gun-control legislation, extends slow burning debate

*** begin quote ***

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said Sunday the Second Amendment leaves open the possibility of gun-control legislation, adding to what has become a slow-boiling debate on the issue since the Colorado movie theater massacre earlier this month.

Scalia, one of the high court’s most conservative justices, said on “Fox News Sunday” that the majority opinion in the landmark 2008 case of District of Columbia v. Heller stated the extent of gun ownership “will have to be decided in future cases.”

“We’ll see,” he said.

*** end quote ***

Now imagine if he said “free speech” legislation and “we’ll see”?

The Press and the Liberal would excoriate him.

Are there no “problems” with Free Speech? No KKK. No porn. No seven forbidden words. No lies on TV. No political promises, forgotten immediately upon election. Has no one died as a results of these? I think they have.

Free Speech has issues. But, we don’t throw away the Principle at the hint of trouble!

Gun deaths don’t come anywhere near the totals of military and civilian deaths in the UnConstitutional “wars” overseas we find ourselves ensnared. Nowhere near the total of abortions. Nowhere near car accidents. 

So, humbly, I suggest that Scalia is wrong. Flat out wrong. Remember one word “The Genocide Prevention Right”. The Gooferment can’t kill armed citizens without consequence.

GUNS: Aurora’s Strict Gun Laws Didn’t

Aurora’s Strict Gun Laws Didn’t Prevent Shooting, But If One Law-Abiding Person In The Theater Had Been Carrying One…
By Ron Meyer
July 21, 2012

*** begin quote ***

Purdue student and Young America’s Foundation Intern Scholar Hillary Cherry provides her thoughts on the Colorado shooting, stressing the importance of protecting our Second Amendment rights:

A masked gunman opened fire yesterday on one of the 3,700 midnight showings of The Dark Knight Rises, leaving 12 dead, 50 injured, and one in custody. Liberals everywhere are wasting no time to use this massacre in an effort to push gun control and gut the Second Amendment.

Mayor Bloomberg asks the Obama administration for stricter gun laws following Colorado shooting. Comedian DL Hughley tweeted, “Aurora is 13yrs and 13 miles from Columbine! Since the 60s over 500,000 ppl have bn killed by guns in the US we have no right 2 b shocked!”

How will stricter gun laws bring an end to criminals having guns, when the laws against murder have not been able to stop them from killing innocent people?

Currently in Aurora, Colorado, where the shooting took place, it is already unlawful to carry a concealed “dangerous weapon,” discharge firearms, unless by law enforcement on duty or on shooting range, and have loaded firearm in motor vehicle.

Yet these laws were unable to stop James Holmes.

*** end quote ***

The lessons of Columbine, Virginia Tech, and now Aurora is that people must be allowed, able, and prepared to defend themselves.

Period, end of story.

The Dead Old White Guys’ wisdom was to enshrine that. We are stupidly ignorant of what makes our species thrive and cooperate — when each is a “sovereign” we have peace.

Argh!

“Dial 911 and die”

When death is seconds away, the police are minutes away. “We, The People” ARE the police!

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” — Lazarus Long (Robert A Heinlein)

“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

Or movie patrons!
