GUNS: I love this commercial!

This is the essence of the debate!

I trust women, any woman, to decide when to unload.

My only gripe is that the guy wakes up all!

Someone comes through my door like that — not that any would be rapist is interested in a fat old white guy injineer — they should be greeted with a full magazine out through the nose.

Old, weak, women, gay or straight, celebrity or office cleaner — level the “playing field”!

Equalize!

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.

http://www.courant.com/news/breaking/hc-police-responding-to-incident-in-newtown-20121214,0,3969911.story

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.

*** begin quote ***

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.

RANT: Appealing to the UN Commission on the Status of Women; what gigantic joke!

Holy See defends marriage, family life before UN commission on women
March 02, 2011

*** begin quote ***

The Holy See’s delegation defended marriage and family life and condemned discrimination against women during a February 28 meeting of the UN Economic and Social Council’s Commission on the Status of Women.

*** end quote ***

That’s a colossal waste of time. (Although Betty White’s language might be much more appropriate.)

India, Iran, Turkey, Syria?

Countries and religions well known for their poor treatment of women.

In recorded history, what civilization permits femicide — in all sorts of ways.

It’s contra-survival. It’s immoral. It’s cutting down on genetic diversity. It’s stupid. It’s seen in no other species.

It’s a path down a dead end street. Like abortion. Like the Shakers. It leads to extinction.

China has a problem because they have socially engineered their way into not having enough women. Good for them. They need a few social problems to work on.

Now, personally, as a little L libertarian, they can do whatever they want in their section of the world. The USA should be like Switzerland. Don’t ask us, we’re neutral. Everyone has to fight for the rights they want to preserve.

“Governments are instituted among men to secure these rights …”

But don’t plan to import your brand of craziness here. We have enough of our own nuttiness! Or haven’t you seen our post office, listen to our radio. or talk to our politicians?

Frankly, in the competitive world market, I’m glad when our competition ties half their population in mental bondage. Imagine if all those women were doing their thing we might have to worry. The phrase “if momma ain’t happy, no one is happy” comes to mind.

And, women have the power to change the world for peace if they ever decide to use it.

Permit me a quote:

*** begin quote ***

Miss Abigail: “No, Miss Marie, in our new world run by women, there will be no sex discrimination. We control the box.” With no hint of self- consciousness or shame.

Miss Marie: “Dear, that’s not a nice way to say it. And, box is very crude. I’m sorry I used it but I was … incensed that war should happen. Maybe you could say ‘we control the future generations’?”

Miss Abigail: “OK, but those balls will be blue before I let my man start another war.”

Knowing she’d done all she could, Marie said, “When this is all over, we should talk my dear. We should really talk. Now away with you. Carefully mind you.”

*** end quote ***

— a conversation between ‘Miss Marie’ and ‘Miss Abigail’ in CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 1 Page 263

Yes, I squeezed every concept I believe in into my novel.

But, I truly believe every word I put into Miss Abigail. When women assume their proper station and role in the world, it will become a much more peaceful place.

Donna Nobis Pacem!

INTERESTING: Carlina White, followed her instincts to reunite

Cold Case Solved: Carlina White Reunites With Parents
White Was Kidnapped as a Baby 23 Years Ago From a New York City Hospital

*** begin quote ***

Carlina White, separated from her family when she was kidnapped as a baby 23 years ago, followed her instincts to reunite with her biological parents, Joy White and Carl Tyson. “Carlina was a missing link and we have gotten her back in the name of Jesus, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,” Pat Conway, White’s godmother, said. On Aug. 4, 1987, worried parents Joy White and Carl Tyson took their feverish baby daughter to Harlem Hospital’s emergency room. The visit turned into horror when…

DNA?

As much as I like happy endings, there is a LOT more to the story.

Gooferment screw ups: <1> Hospital; <2> School; … must be others.

It would seem that there are a lot of charges to be investigated and filed in this case.

Technology had a role in finding with the computer aged photos.

Perhaps, this will have a happy ending?

RANT: The problem is NOT poor people crossing the border for a better life.

Severin suspended for comments about Mexican immigrants
By David Abel
Globe Staff / May 1, 2009

*** begin quote ***

Jay Severin, the fiery right wing talk show host on Boston’s WTKK-FM radio station, was suspended yesterday after calling Mexican immigrants “criminaliens,” “primitives,” “leeches,” and exporters of “women with mustaches and VD,” among other incendiary comments.
*** end quote ***

Interesting.
Jay filled in on a NYC show once upon a time. I thought he was a reasoned voice.
As usual, this one, and many others on the radio, have missed the problem.
The problem is NOT poor people crossing the border for a better life.
(Is that what the Statue of Liberty proclaims? The phrase “huddled masses yearning to be free” comes to mind. Maybe we SHOULD put that proverbial garbage bag over the Lady with the Lamp? We obviously don’t believe in the ethic that she represents. Any more! At one time Americans did. But not now!)
The problem is welfare!
Americans have gotten fat and lazy! On welfare.
Cut out the welfare and you cut out one of the problems. Only folks who want to work hard, assimilate, and make a good life for themselves will come.
We also need to address the psuedo “war on (some) drugs”. If we decriminalize ALL drugs, then the Columbian Drug Gangs and the various gangs — including large segments of the gang euphemistically called “the police” will have to find other productive work. The Pharmacy Department at WalMart will be hiring. Instead of shoot outs over territory and children taking rat poison when they get high, we will focus our attention on curing sick people. If they want to be cured.
Yes, America and Americans have to change. Adapt to the new realities.
Immigrants in the pre-welfare state days had hard lives. But everyone was better off for it.
As Heinlein wrote: “TANSTAFL”!
“There ain’t no such thing as free lunch!”
So let’s stop bitching and get to work solving real problems!

GUNS: Plaxico is sacrificed over “victim disarmament”

Sports of The Times
Released by Giants, Burress Loses His Football Family
By WILLIAM C. RHODEN
Published: April 3, 2009

*** begin quote ***

A few days after committing the blunder of his life last year, Plaxico Burress sat in a Giants office with a look on his face that General Manager Jerry Reese had never seen before.

Reese had seen plenty — mostly disinterested looks through all the fines and suspensions levied during the course of Burress’s four years with the Giants. The lectures all seemed to go over, under and around Burress, but never seemed to penetrate.

Then on Nov. 29, Burress crossed the line. He accidentally shot himself in the thigh in a Manhattan nightclub with an unlicensed gun he had tucked into his waistband. Burress was charged with two counts of criminal weapons possession. Worse, his recklessness incurred the wrath of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, who has made the prosecution of illegal weapons possession one of his pet projects.

*** end quote ***

If we were following that worthless piece of paper (i.e., the Constitution), this would be a non-issue.

The RKBA shall not be infringed!

So, while he may have been stupid or inept, he did have a right to that gun. He did have a right to defend himself. No one addresses the reasons why football players were afraid.

While I won’t get on his jury, one can only hope he gets some “gun nuts” on the jury. Or, some one who’s read the FIJA literature.

A man has been charged with first-degree murder after a shooting at an office Christmas party in Vancouver Friday.

Interesting. Did, do, CEOs think employees are “human resources”. And, in “victim disarmament” Canada?
