Brian Wilson got on a roll yesterday morning.

I don’t have an exact timestamp but it was in the 7:30 time frame.

He made the assertion that the true war on women was the right to defend themselves.

His example was:

“Taylor Woolrich, a junior, says Dartmouth administrators told her they won’t let her carry a gun on campus, even though she lives in fear of a man who has been stalking her since she was a high school student in San Diego.”

I have a “bumper sticker” quote that sums it up: “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

Brian went on to argue that the R’s should adopt this issue in response to the D’s “war on women” spiel.

He also suggested that the NRA jump on this issue.

And, he expressed shock that this was in New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state.

(I’m a signer on the Free State Project freestateproject.org to move 20,000 liberty lovers to NH and make it the “truly Free State”. Obviously a lot of work to be done yet.) 

The Second Amendment is about self-defense. Both from the tyranny of the government and other predators both two legged and four legged.

Argh!

Seems so simple to me!


GUNS: RKBA SHALL NOT except in the USSA

Why Every (Yes, Every) Gun Control Law Is Unconstitutional
Written by: Byron Berger Self Defense July 11, 2014

*** begin quote ***

What’s interesting about this language is that it states that the right to bear arms SHALL NOT be infringed. The Founding Fathers placed a bright-line prohibition on infringement of the right. They knew the difference between an outright prohibition and the providing to the federal government the ability to place reasonable restrictions on a right. For example, the Fourth Amendment prohibits “unreasonable” search and seizure.

Until 2010, the significant weakness of the Second Amendment was that, in some minds, it did not apply to state or local governments. These governments were free to make any regulations their state supreme courts held acceptable under the state constitutions. That’s why states like New York and California could virtually ban their citizens from bearing arms.

But it all changed in 2010, when the United States Supreme Court decided McDonald v. Chicago. This case held that the Second Amendment was “incorporated.” This legal term means that the states and local governments now must follow the limitations of the federal Constitution’s Second Amendment, and that state laws cannot be more restrictive than those allowed by the Second Amendment.

Had an interesting discussion with a young lady going off to college and concerned about personal safety.

A friends recommended MACE or Pepper Spray. 

I disagreed.

The young lady will travel from the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee, through the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee, to the Pepuls Republik of Konn-net-tea-cut!

Guaranteed she will fall afoul of the diktats in one of those three “jurisdiction”.

I recommend pursuing other options — one of which was a concealed carry permit in all three states. Virtually impossible for “regular people”.

As well as self-defense classes and situational awareness training (OODA).

If some one is going to hurt her, I want her to stop it cold!

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.

GUNS: “Help will be there is a few minutes.”

best line is: “But I don’t have a few minutes.”

Argh!

Technically, I guess she should have waited until he broke in. 

But, if I was on the Jury, I’d wink at that distinction. 

Not like he was there to sell Girl Scout cookies.

While the Connecticut Citizens Defense League believes the law is unconstitutional, it has been reminding gun owners of the deadline to make sure they don’t become felons on Jan. 1.

GUNS: NFL banned commercial

Why would the NFL ban this commercial from the Superbowl unless it has a political agenda?

Maybe RKBA activists should boycott the Superbowl!

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.]
