Americans Have Obeyed Their Last Gun Law
Attribute to L. Neil Smith's The Libertarian Enterprise
We're going to start this mega-humongous doubled-up rant with... wait for it... TWO from Mama Liberty. alright, they're not both WRITTEN by her, but she sent one she liked to me, and wrote another for us to enjoy. First, the passed on piece—[Link] She links an article about the NRA, collaborationists extraordinaire, adding an ATF snitch to their board of directors. WTF??? At least Alan Gottlieb isn't THAT stupid with 2AF. Then, we go to her own work—[Link] This piece deals with the (oft-times ridiculous) search for perfection, and just who gets to decide what perfection is—FOR YOU!
"Or... who in heck gets to determine the "perfect" or the "good?" I mean, for anyone else...
I know I've done it....
I love it that Washington State's lawmakers are having a hard time understanding the trouble they have create by sucking off.... er up to Michael "the Billionaire Dickhead" Bloomberg. [Link]
"Washington state's new gun control law, passed with money contributed by liberal billionaires Bill Gates and Michael Bloomberg, is almost universally unpopular. At a recent rally, more than a thousand people defied the law by carrying their weapons in public, including many legislators. Police officers were everywhere, and they arrested no one. In private, representatives of law enforcement are among the law's biggest critics.Like all gun control laws, this one comes with a central problem. As Greg Campbell of the Tea Party News Network says:
Isn't it great? Thousands of people commit felony peaceful protest, and the police correctly choose to do nothing. Because the law itself is a felonious violation of the Constitution!
Here, in the first of our "Well Armed Citizen" stories this week (and we have a nice number of them this week), we see, yet again, that a woman with a gun is going to be disarmed and have her gun used against her, as the anti-Constitutionalists always try to tell us... NOT!!! [Link]
Now, she DIDN'T have to shoot, so she didn't shoot. EXACTLY how most armed citizens defending themselves ends.
Und now, the "Well Armed American" Part Deux—[Link] Sorry (NOT!) Victim Disarmament scumbags, women CAN defend themselves quite nicely with the tools invented for exactly that purpose—handguns.
"Arizona—(Ammoland.com)—Sable Nehme shows how she turned from the closet and pointed the revolver.
The neighborhood, the Village of Alafaya Club, in Orlando, may be sketchy, as are many neighborhoods around universities. Perhaps local readers will be able to tell us if that surmise is true. The boyfriend, Nour Skargee, checked the peephole before opening the door. He only saw one of the intruders. As he cracked the door open, the intruder pushed his way in, grabbed him and pushed him inside. A second intruder in a hoody quickly followed, placed a gun in his face, and ordered him to the floor.
Fortunately, Sable Nehme's father had given her a revolver. She was in her bedroom, and the revolver was in the closet of her bedroom. She quickly locked the door and retrieved the revolver, slipping off the holster that it was in. By this time one of the invaders had broken through the door and was rapidly approaching. By the time she had turned, he was within a couple of feet of her. As she turned and pointed the gun at him, he slammed to a halt and ran from the room and out the apartment."
I guess THAT'S another asshole who learned a lesson. And, since he's still alive, he might be able to actually profit from the lesson, and change careers. Good thing she ignored the idiots who claim that ALL guns must be stored unloaded, and that college students can't safely possess guns.
Another "Well Armed American" Shows us that only the insane idiots bring a knife to a gun fight. [Link] It ALSO happens to show why WE know the insane idiots trying to ban our RTKBA deserve no sympathy, no tolerance, and have no credence.
"What would you do if you were minding your own business in the comfort of your own home and a machete-wielding maniac started kicking in your door?If you don't have a firearm you'd likely panic, pick up the phone, and hope that 9-1-1 can get a police officer to your house in the next 15 seconds.
You have to watch the video (a great way to protect yourself from the aftermath of this type of incident if you have the time) to see the rest of the story.
THIS is the way Christians settle job disputes? maybe I'll come back to the church... [Link] Or not! From the "Well Armed American Pastors" column:
A Florida minister was forced to resort to violence to defend other church staff members and a number of children in his congregation. Living Water Fellowship Pastor Terry Howell, Sr. was in the process of terminating the employment of maintenance worker Benjamin Paragan, Jr., when the employee pulled a gun and began shooting. In response, Howell took out his own handgun and fired at Parangan. Western Journalism reports:
I guess THIS pastor doesn't turn the other cheek....
It's amazing we needed a federal appeals court to have THIS fact confirmed—you CAN flip a cop the bird without risking arrest! [Link]
"Forgive the double negative. It's not that you didn't already have this right, but a federal court recently upheld one's legal ability to flip off the police.
Read the rest of the link to find out what lame-assed excuse the cop gave for the arrest in the first place.
Well, since Ben Franklin first said it, I'd agree—you CAN'T trade essential liberties for temporary security. I vote we keep the liberties, and trust in our arms for the security. [Link]
"Atlanta, GA—A Georgia lawmaker has proposed a bill, aptly named Baby Bou's law, that would restrict the issuance of no-knock raids.The bill's namesake, Baby Bounekahm "Bou Bou" Phonesavanh, suffered third-degree burns to his chest and face after sheriff's deputies in Habersham County raided a house in the middle of the night in May of 2014. They were looking for a person who did not live there, over a $50 drug sale, and threw a flashbang grenade into the infant's crib.
Tough shit, lady. Our essential liberties are more important than your idiotic victimless drug laws. DUH!!!
This one comes under both the "Well Armed Americans" AND the "Darwin Awards" headers. [Link] Parents, Teach your children well, if you wish them to remain alive and out of prison.
"Family and friends of two teenage boys shot and killed inside a home they had broken into are speaking out.
Bullshit they didn't deserve to die. They entered the home of another, and proceeded to steal that person's property. Once they do that, they are lucky if they do NOT die as a result. They are/were criminals who got what they deserve. Want my sympathy? For your brats, it's located in the dictionary, between "Shit" and "Syphillis". MY sympathy is saved for the homeowners, who, being decent human beings (unlike the thieves) will have to live out their lives with the guilt (and they WILL feel it, even though it was the right thing to do) of killing these two greedy little bastards.
And our final "Well Armed Citizen" of this blockbuster Rant is here, in a predominantly black Milwaukee neighborhood. [Link] As of the time I got this story, it is unknown if either the good guy OR the bad guy are black, but the odds are highly in favor of both being black.
"In Milwaukee, on Friday, the 9th of January, an armed robber was shot and killed as he was patting down men that he was robbing in the Level Up Barber Shop. One of them did not wait to be patted down. He drew his legally carried pistol and shot the robber. The robber died. No one else was hurt.
While we do not know if the robbery suspect who was killed was black, Ty, the co-owner is black, and the barber shop is in a dominantly black area."
Whatever the skin color of our hero might be, I applaud you, Sir or Madam, for the excellent job. I suspect you will not be paying for your haircuts for a while........
Some nice quotes fer ya!!
"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years."—Alexander Tytler, British historian
"I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance; it ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."—John Adams to his wife, Abigail, on the first Independence Day
"People sleep peacably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."—George Orwell
"I am more afraid of an army of 100 sheep led by a lion than an army of 100 lions led by a sheep."—Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord
Before I close this, a new trend in ammunition naming was begun by L. Neil Smith a few years ago when S&W caved in to gun grabbers and supported a major Victim Disarmament Bill. He re-named .40S&W to .40 Liberty. The next caliber to re-name is ore in honor than repudiation. The 10mm, a cartridge designed to the specifications of Colonel Jeff Cooper, for a gun he designed, the Bren 10. The good Colonel would never have been so crass as to name the cartridge after himself, but now that he has passed, WE can. The .40 Cooper shall henceforth be the name of 10mm in this gun person's lexicon.
And that's the end of this one!
