Over the years I have heard these from gun training instructors and others so I did not write them. But they are good and deserve recognition here. If you own a gun you will probably appreciate these. Of course, if you don’t own a gun, get one, learn how to use it responsibly, perhaps by going to Front Sight, then remember these rules.
In a gunfight, the most important rule is Continue reading
I had someone stop by here asking if the Second Amendment, and thereby the Constitution I assume, is outdated. The Constitution after all, was written back in the eighteenth century by a bunch of guys who aren’t around any more, back when they still used muskets and black powder pistols. How could this Constitution they put together apply today? It does not speak to today so how can it still be relevant?
Well, I suppose that is correct in one sense that the Constitution does not speak to today. For that matter it did not speak to the late eighteenth century either. It speaks to men, man if you will, acknowledging that we are imperfect, and that whenever power is given to one man, say a king, emperor or dictator, it corrupts. Power will turn the ambition of most men who achieve power to that of personal enrichment, just as we see what is happening in our government today, unfortunately. That is why so many of the Republican leadership do not want Trump to become President, even if it means electing Hillary. Trump represents someone who could upset their gravy train and ruin the good thing they have going for themselves. He could be their spoiler. But I digress.
The Constitution tries to limit the corruption of power by allowing us to chose the ones who will govern us, from the people – not a ruling class or family (So what about Hillary?, you say – again I digress – sorry). It further sets out to limit Continue reading
Someone stopped by looking for information on “Open Carry in Arizona”. I often get people curious about this from other States as well. So I am posting a list of States that currently allow “Open Carry”.
Currently most states do allow “Open Carry” in some form. Arizona does allow Open Carry without a permit. Some states require a permit to Open Carry, while others do not. Some States allow the open carry of Long Guns whereas many do not. And best of all, some States Continue reading
A bill has been filed in the Massachusetts State Senate that will remove power from the State Attorney General. Bruce Tarr (R) Minority Leader of the Senate filed the bill which he calls an “act to protect due process and strengthen public safety” 12 days after State Attorney General Maura Healey announced that she would outlaw Continue reading
I came across a new Gun Law that has passed the Mississippi Legislature and has been signed by Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, that may actually save lives. One of the things that I am always complaining about is that of the more than 22,000 gun laws on the books now, none of them has ever saved a life. But alas, we may now have one, and it goes into effect immediately.
Of course, this law would not even be necessary if they hadn’t previously passed a Gun Control law that made it illegal in the first place, but this new law now makes it legal for a Continue reading
According to a Veteran Psychiatrist, liberal thinking individuals actually suffer from a mental disorder. They are Mentally Ill. An acclaimed veteran psychiatrist is making a case that the ideology motivating liberals is actually a mental disorder. To my thinking, that makes a lot of sense. I don’t know how many times I have heard a liberal democrat, like Debbie Wasserman Schultz or even Hillary Clinton, making statements that just seem 180 degrees out of phase and I think, “How can she say that? It’s so not so. She’s totally backward.” But with Hillary we know that she believes that if you keep saying the same lie over and over that eventually the people will believe it. That propensity though, may be linked to the problem described here.
Dr. Lyle Rossiter, is author of the new book, “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness”, Liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded. He says, Continue reading
Governor Moonbeam Removed Some More of Our Freedoms
On this 4th of July weekend and Holiday, we here in the Socialist State we refer to as the People’s Republik of Kalifornistan, we get to also celebrate the loss of some more of our Freedom; Freedom that we thought was guaranteed by our Constitution and the Second Amendment. But when the people continue to vote Democrat they elect a Legislature that is 2 to 1 Democrat to Republican. As a result the Liberal Gun Grabbers are undeterred. The Republicans can do nothing and they watch the Dems, our Moral Superiors, pass whatever gun control law they want, no matter how much it infringes on our Second Amendment Right. And with an Uber Liberal Democrat Governor, Jerry Brown, they get signed into law at about the same ratio.
This is now Illegal
This weekend we celebrate the loss of our AR-15s, AR-10s, AKs and so on. On Friday before the 4th of July weekend, Governor Moon Beam signed Continue reading
Proof Positive for the Liberal Left Antis that we need to Ban Guns.
Every time there is a horrific mass gun killing like we had in Orlando, the rabid left wing of our countries political governance, starts immediately crying for more gun control. They pull out their arsenal of agenda topics, their most favorite rant, Gun Control. This time the Liberals in the House of Representatives weighed in, apparently thinking they were back in the ’60s, as they staged a meaningless and embarrassing “sit in” on the floor of the House. They point to our sick, twisted obsession with personal gun possession in this country, our fanatical gun culture that is embarrassing to them when compared to their socialist European friends with highly superior gun control laws. We must be the most murdering country in the world, especially after Orlando.
So if we look at the statistics you would expect to find us at the top of the list. Any yes, according to statistics for 2014, the United States tops the list in Glory. We are indeed ranked number 1 in the world with gun ownership at 90 guns per 100 people or .9 per person. If you had a random gathering of 1000 people, and you got an honest tally of how may guns they own among them, according to the statistics you would find 900 guns in the crowd. Amazing. The next country does not even come close with almost half as many guns at 58.2 guns per 100 people and that would be Serbia. Even Switzerland, where gun ownership almost required, is ranked fourth behind us with only 45.7 guns per 100 people.
There you have it. Something of which Rick Wyatt, Paige Wyatt and the entire crew at Gunsmoke Guns would be proud. It is proof positive that the United States with their fanatical obsession with guns tops the list by far and we have far too many guns. This is surely evidence to the Progressive Left that they surely do live in the murder capital of the world with 90 guns per 100 residents. We must be the most murderous country in the world with those numbers.
So using Liberal gun thinking, all we have to do to prove the left wing Progressive case for banning guns is look at the Per Capita Intentional Homicide statistics for the murder rate in the world. Surely we must top that list as well. We should be number 1 again. Right? Wrong. We are Continue reading
If you take a look at the more than 13,550 gun laws we have in the United States including federal, state and local laws, I defy you to find even one that has saved a life, prevented a crime, prevented a mass murder or political assassination. It can’t be done. Gun Control laws do not save lives or make people safe. To the contrary, they make people less safe by denying them the ability to defend themselves from predation. So now they want what they like to call “Common Sense Gun Laws”. There is no such thing. They all make citizens less safe.
Most gun laws on the books today are there as a result of an emotional, irrational over reaction to some tragedy or sudden perceived threat. None of the laws are based on Constitutional Law, or are consistent with overall dominant public opinion. Each and every gun control law is Unconstitutional by Continue reading
Today, a week after the horrific slaughter in Orlando, the battle lines have clearly been drawn. Problem is, the Liberal Democrats seem to be better at staying focused on their agenda and hype. They seem to keep the drum beat for Gun Control banging in every direction you look.
The Liberals want to take the guns out of our hands and the Republicans believe we need to fight the war to defeat terrorism – “Militant Islamic Terrorism”.
The idea of people walking around with concealed carry weapons is abhorrent to our President. Obama actually said “the notion that the answer to this tragedy would be to make sure that more people in a nightclub are similarly armed to take out the killer defies common sense.”, – his words. More correctly, his statement defies common sense. People with their own weapons in the club could have Continue reading
By Michael Z. Williamson
Behavioral laws require three components to be effective. They must accurately describe an action that causes harm to others. They must propose a penalty that disincentivizes the activity. They must be enforceable.
Michael Williamson at Book Signing
Let’s consider the laws against murder. The harm done is obvious. The penalties range up to death. They can be enforced by an examination of the evidence during trial, and punishment.
How about “disturbing the peace?” If you plug in a Gibson ES35 guitar and a stack of Marshal and Hi-Watt amps at 2 a.m. and start playing Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man,” there’s a good chance your neighbors will complain. If they do, we have a clear report of harm done (minor harm, but relevant), and can again have an examination, trial and punishment, probably a fine.
Of course, we could prevent some of those incidences by licensing guitars, having waiting periods on amplifiers, and requiring proof of need for any amp over 20 watts.
Wait, how would that work exactly? Continue reading
Here we go again. 50 people killed this time and 53 more were injured in a “Gun Free Zone” in Orlando, Florida. The people never had a chance. The gay bar, Pulse Nightclub, where all of this went down was posted with “No Guns Allowed” signs. In addition, Florida law prohibits guns in an establishment that serves alcohol.
This is to some degree, preventable. Our lawmakers and politicians continue to believe that our society needs what they call “gun free zones”, ostensibly to keep guns out of the building, arena, or gathering place. But are criminals or terrorists going to care about that? Well not so far as not taking a weapon into the place goes. In fact, they know that it makes for an easy target. Terrorists will continue to target Gun Free Zones as long as they exist. Let’s face it, Gun Free Zones are Continue reading
