In light of the killings in California ...

... I'm only going to link to a post by David Codrea.

Happy Memorial Day

I'm going to say something ...

.. that will put me firmly in the minority.

I'm glad we have people who will openly carry a long gun into a restaurant. There ... I said it.

If you agree with me, you can move along now; you could probably write this post for me.

If you don't, I have a few things to say.

The overwhelming truth that we live under constantly is that the media is not our friend.

Not. Our. Friend.


There is nothing, nothing that we do that will be portrayed in a favorable light. How much, again?


So is it any surprise that the media attention on the Chipotle incident has been negative? It doesn't surprise me.

But would it surprise you to know that Open Carry TX asked for, and received permission to meet at the restaurant a week prior to the open carry event? Would it surprise you that on the day of the event, OCT gathered and were welcomed into the restaurant by an enthusiastic staff? Would it surprise you that, except for a few curious customers, no one gave the demonstrators a second look?

It wouldn't surprise me.

And would it surprise you that on a warm Saturday in TX, most people going about their business would be dressed in casual clothes? Would it surprise you that the membership of a group would represent people from all walks of life and all body types? Would it surprise you that most of the members of a group had (or had not) been in the military? Would it surprise you that even in a gun group, most of the members hadn't worked in a gun shop, or dabbled in collectible firearms, or had taken the latest high-speed low-drag training?

It wouldn't surprise me.

And would it surprise you that these activists don't carry handguns openly because it's illegal?

It wouldn't surprise me.

But instead, from our side, I hear all sorts of things that I usually hear from gun grabbers ...

'You're too fat ... stay off my side.'

'You're a wannabe tough guy ... stay off my side.'

'Your fake operator's beard tells me you're a poseur ... stay off my side.'

'You're just an attention whore ... stay off my side.'

You're a douchenozzle/peckerhead/internet commando/numbnuts ... stay off my side.'

'I'd like to put these two in the front-lean position until I get tired.'

Wow. I'd wonder what these guys did if I didn't already know.

H.L. Mencken said  "The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all."

Ronald Reagan had the 11th Commandment - Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.

Democrats have never talked bad about one of their own, defending to the death everyone from Bill Clinton to Bob Filner and everyone in between.

But as soon as one of us crosses some imaginary line, the arrows start flying.

I have a suggestion. If you think you have a better idea about how to win hearts and minds and are willing to put that idea into action, by all means, pass your idea on to those who are willing to do the heavy lifting.

But if all you're going to do is bitch, and moan, and complain, and spew invective, may I humbly ask you to kindly Shut. The. Fuck. Up!

You can quote me.

So, have you heard the latest ...

... in NFA land?!
So, we have a prohibition on any “person” transferring or possessing a machinegun which was not lawfully registered before May 19, 1986. BUT, an unincorporated trust is not a “person” under the GCA, so this provision cannot apply to it.

In turning to the National Firearms Act, as amended, 26 U.S.C. 5801, et seq., we find that a “person” is defined as including a trust, pursuant to 26 U.S.C. 7701. Yet, there exists no 922(o)esque provision in Section 5801, et seq.

Therefore, pursuant to 26 U.S.C. 5812 and 5822, an unincorporated trust may lawfully transfer and make machineguns, as it is not a “person” for purposes of the GCA and Section 922 only applies to “persons” as defined by the GCA. And yes, this opens up a lot more issues for ATF in relation to the purchase of firearms by trusts under the GCA. Someone isn’t likely to be employed much longer…
This is what happens when you let lawyers make laws ... you always end up with a bureaucrat interpreting them.

But have no fear; any decision that bolsters freedom and common sense will surely be reversed!

I"m proud to say ...

... that Georgia was one of the first:
The legislature in the Show Me state has loaded up the agenda with a new proposal which, if passed, would give potential eveil-doers something to think about before they attempt an attack on a public school. If signed into law, the new bill would see some of the teachers in Missouri schools fully firearms trained and packing in the classroom.
I agree that teachers should have the option to be armed in their classrooms but I disagree with the requirement to have law enforcement-level training. The reason is that the public approves of arming teachers as a last ditch measure for the safety of school children; they don't envision teachers being called out to muster in a manhunt.

As I've said many times before, I would have no problem with any of my daughters' teachers carrying a firearm in school.

A REAL journalist ...

... could make a Pulitzer-winning career out of this:
Renowned Swedish scientist Professor Lennart Bengtsson of Reading University was at the centre of an international row last week when his study was rejected by a leading science journal after it was said to be ‘harmful’ and have a ‘negative impact’.

The rejection sparked accusations that scientists had crossed an important line by censoring findings that were not helpful to their views.
They keep using that word, 'science'; I don't think it means what they think it means.

Here, here ...

... the best response:
 If I lived in Venezuela, I’d find out where the guardsmen lived, and shoot them when they walked out the door in the morning. That is, of course, the proper response to dictators and their minions of every stripe, even Hollywood-backed socialists.

Mark Steyn ...

... notices that somethings up:
Aside from doing my bit for the First Amendment (your continued support is much appreciated), I've lately been taking a much greater interest in the Fourth Amendment, particularly since a meek mild-mannered mumsy employee of mine was unlawfully seized by an angry small-town cop last year. So I've been chewing over yesterday's Supreme Court ruling. 
The ruling he's referring to is Tolan v Cotton, where SCOTUS remanded the case back to the trial level because they used the wrong standard the first time.

But beyond that case he notices that the 'book' that the police use needs a bit of updating.

Good ...

... It's about time:
“I can’t go to the grocery store without being recognized, pointed at, laughed at," said Dooley. "Can't pay my water bill without hearing my name, saying 'There's the sorry cop that killed the dog.’”
That is former Officer Jarrod Dooley, the TX deputy who shot a farm dog in the back of the head. Seems the grand jury doesn't like law enforcement shooting animals and then claiming they were attacked.

It's interesting that the article claims that after he shot the dog, and was being begged to administer the coup de grace, he left, leaving the owner to kill his own dog.

A waste of humanity, that one.

“I can’t go to the grocery store without being recognized, pointed at, laughed at," said Dooley. "Can't pay my water bill without hearing my name, saying 'There's the sorry cop that killed the dog.’” - See more at:

Don't bother calling your Chamber ...

... it'll do no good:
“If the Republicans don’t do it, they shouldn’t bother to run a candidate in 2016,” Donohue joked at an event on infrastructure investment in D.C. “Think about that. Think about who the voters are. I just did that to get everybody’s attention.”…
He got my attention, all right.

He may allege he was joking, but I'm still going to get a list of local business who are members of the local Chamber and let them know what the president of the national organization is doing.

It still may do no good, but I'll feel better.

Identifying voters is offending people?

Boo fucking hoo:
Just sat down w @SenRandPaul after his meeting with black pastors. He says GOP needs to lay off voter ID. "It's offending people."
Is there NO ONE who will support and defend conservative principles and the rule of law?!

Aaron's ...

... monthly opportunity to win stuff.

To defend bad people is human nature ...

... else we'd have to explain ourselves:
Family and friends of two teenage boys shot and killed inside a home they had broken into are speaking out.
“They didn’t deserve to get killed,” said the sister of 14-year-old Michael Sambrano.
He and his 16-year-old best friend were shot and killed on Sunday morning by someone inside a home the teens were breaking into. Police won’t say whether it was the elderly homeowner or her brother who shot and killed the teens who had just broken into their home.
While they didn't deserve to get killed, that is one of the natural consequences that can visit if you break into peoples homes.

But the family and friends are never asked 'What did you do to prevent this?' or 'How might you have contributed to this?' or 'Why didn't you call the police once you found out that your son (or friend) was a criminal?'.

I'm not going to bitch too much ...

... but I can't see how there's not a circuit split over 'good cause':
A panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit upheld the law, saying the legislature’s decision was a “presumptively lawful, long-standing regulation and therefore does not burden conduct within the scope of the Second Amendment’s guarantee.”

The issue is still being debated in lower courts, however. 

Earlier this year, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in San Francisco said San Diego County had infringed on constitutional rights by the way it enforced California’s law requiring “good cause” to obtain a concealed-weapons permit.
 Isn't that one of the primary functions of SCOTUS? To resolve circuit splits? I suppose we'll just have to wait until we get the 'right' plaintiff.

I thought ...

... we were better than this:
A Maryland firearms shop owner is backing away from plans to sell a smart gun after backlash from gun rights advocates who fear the technology in the high-tech firearm will be used to curtail their Second Amendment rights.

Andy Raymond, owner of Rockville gun store Engage Armament, told The Washington Post he is backing down from selling the gun after word about his plan was spread online by gun rights blogs. He said he even received a death threat.
Threatening someone is something that liberals do. The worst that we should have done is just not buy the POS.

Trying to justify your actions because of what the government might do exactly what anti-gunners do.

Bring back ...

... the guillotine:
There are other, less dramatic, ways, of course. Hanging and firing squads would probably be quicker and more painless than lethal injection or the electric chair. But the guillotine really seems to solve everyone’s problems: It was designed to deliver an efficient, quick, and painless death. It performs that task admirably. I understand the irony of a reactionary such as myself embracing the Terror’s preferred method of execution, but one must give credit where it’s due.
 The author rightly points out that most of the modern methods of execution are for the publics' benefit, not any constitutional reasons; the public just wants it to go quietly and with no visible blood.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm not opposed to the condemned suffering a little (or even an amount commensurate with his victim); I just wouldn't want to bring back medievel torture.

The State ...

... will always protect the State:
"The motorcyclist had given up yet he still rammed him and took him out, unbelievable," said Rick Horner.
The state didn't see it that way. The Tennessee Highway Patrol and the Putnam County district attorney both investigated the 2012 chase and the actions of Trooper Michael Loftis.
District Attorney Randy York wrote, "We have decided not to pursue any criminal charges and will be closing our file. I do not think there were any intentional actions of Trooper Loftis that led to this accident."
There's video at the link. The officer chased the guy through town and into the country, with the obligatory high speeds. When the biker stopped, the officer made sure he wasn't going anywhere else by ramming him into a fence and pinning him.

I'm sorry to say that the guy's lawsuit is probably doomed to fail.

I'm in agreement with ...

... almost everyone I know:
Fuck this piece of shit and anyone defending him. I'm tired of the fucking pussyfooted limp wristed no good low life politicians and their opinions. He raped a 19 year old girl and watched her die as she was buried alive! I'm glad his execution was botched! I can only hope he was ass raped daily up to the day he was put down like the dog he was! 
Don't hold back, Fireman!

If you see that the execution isn't going as planned, the backup plan should be employed  - that being a suppressed .22 applied behind the ear.

The 8th amendment prohibits cruel and unusual punishments ... punishments like the rack or the Brazen Bull. I don't think a bullet to the brain qualifies.
