Bypassing Twitter's Censorship.

It seems that Twitter is censoring not just conservative speech but, also scholarly research.  For that reason, I'm planting a link HERE, and then I will link this post to Twitter.  This should be interesting.

Some General Observations on Guns, Violence, and Liberals

Just some general observations.

1. There's no such animal as "Assault weapons." That's a made-up term created by those who want to take away my "sporting rifles." :) There are "assault rifles." Those are select fire weapons capable of both full and semi-automatic fire. The typical civilian AR-15 is semi-automatic ONLY.

2. It seems that some of you anti-gun types actually DO want to take away our guns. Sen. Dianne Feinstein is quoted (accurately it turns out) as saying:

"If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them....Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in. I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren't here."

As I understand it, she held a California Concealed carry license, which is difficult to impossible for "normal" Californians to get. Hypocrite much, Dianne?

3. AR does NOT stand for "Assault Rifle." It stands for Armalite. The company that originally designed it.

4. The 2nd Amendment was NOT written to protect our right to hunt. And yes, there were weapons capable of firing multiple shots back then. And the writers of the constitution were aware of them. Don't believe me? Google the Puckle Gun for one. You can also Google the Girandoni Air Rifle.

And you doubting Thomases should read Federalist #46.

In spite of Title 10, that is NOT the militia as envisioned by the founding fathers. It is my belief that what is stated in Michigan MCL 32.509 is much closer.

The organized militia of this state taken collectively shall be known as the state military establishment and constitutes the armed forces of this state. The organized militia consists of the army national guard, the air national guard, and the defense force when actually in existence as provided in this act. The unorganized militia consists of ALL other able-bodied citizens of this state and all other able-bodied citizens who are residents of this state who have or shall have declared their intention to become citizens of the United States, who shall be age 17 or over and not more than age 60, and shall be subject to state military duty as provided in this act.

Those would be mandatory members. Those of us who might be over the age but, still somewhat able-bodied, (if somewhat feeble-minded. :) ) would be voluntary members.

5. If you think that a citizen militia couldn't stand up to a regular armed force...WHERE THE F*CK HAVE YOU BEEN THE LAST 30+ YEARS??? Go ask Afghanistan, Vietnam, the Provos in Northern Ireland, and others how they did it.

6. Do you really want to prohibit longarm sales to 18-20 year olds in the vain hope that will stop mass shooting? If you really believe that, you're dumber than you look.

7. Stop calling my AR a "military grade" rifle. That's an insult. She's much better than that. :) And I know why you don't like her, you racist bastard. It's because she's black.

8. Ammo clips are NOT the same thing as ammo magazines. IF you are going to talk about firearms, at least learn proper terminology. And while you're at it, learn something instructional about firearms too, so you don't sound like a total idiot.

9. Speaking of magazines, those of you who want to ban "high capacity" magazines, don't know your butt from a hole in the ground. The Parkland shooter used 10 round mags because he couldn't fit the bigger ones into his bag. :)

10. That's it for now. Just some things I wanted to get out there. Don't feel like you have to reply. You're not going to change my mind. Banning the AR-15 style rifle would not have stopped the Parkland shooting. It probably wouldn't have stopped the Vegas shooting either. There are a lot of guns out there that work very similar to the AR platform. It just happens to be a popular design. So, get over it.

Yet another reason to NEVER go to New Jersy

The story linked below is yet another reason I will NEVER set foot in New Jersey, and why I will tell everyone I know, DON'T GO THERE.  If you live there, and you like guns, I suggest you move as soon as possible.  In the meantime, please click the link below, check out the story and if you can, help Meg out by donating to her defense fund.

I hope that once this is behind her, she can find a decent lawyer to sue the pants off the state of New Jersey and their Gestapo police who like to manufacture evidence and deny civil rights.  For added sanity, stay out of Maryland too.  Apparently they have a habit of similar bullshit.

AJPH Smart Gun Survey is Bull Crap

A new "survey" published by the American Journal of Public Health says 59% of American gun owners would buy smart guns.  I call bullshit.  Any REAL American gun owner, who owns guns for recreation and self-defense knows that today's smart gun technology is fatally flawed.  There are too many things that can go wrong at just the wrong moment.

Imagine, you're in your home, watching television, or on your computer, eating dinner, playing with your children, whatever, and some depraved maniacal killer decides to break into your home, to commit some heinous crime.  You reach for your smart gun, aim it at the intruder, who doesn't stop coming at you, pull the trigger, and nothing happens.  The battery in the "smart" gun is dead, so it won't activate.

The above example is only one of many possibilities.  Now, I don't know about you, but I for one do not intend to trust my life to a device that "claims" to be a smart gun.  If I've learned anything in my 60 years on this planet, it is the more stuff you put into a piece of equipment, the more likely it is to break at the wrong moment.  The best firearms tend to be those with the fewest parts.  Adding electronics, sensors and batteries is just gumming up the works.

U of M cancels Screening of American Sniper

Seriously?  The reason stated the film made the students feel unsafe.  I mean, it's a movie.  Are we raising a bunch of sissies now?  Adult sized children who are afraid of a movie?  And that stupid petition they circulated, how would they know about the movie, if they haven't seen it?

It's sad for me to think that our colleges and universities are turning out scared little children who are afraid of their own shadows, but this does appear to be the case.  This is what we get for decades of letting left wing loons run our higher learning establishments.  We have met the enemy, and he is us.

Gun Violence is NOT a public Health Issue

Which of these things is not like the other?

1. Measles
2. Influenza
3. Tuberculosis
4. Murder

If you picked #4, “murder,” you’re right. The first three are medical diseases. In contrast “murder” is not a medical problem, although it is a tragic cause of death. But in recent years, anti-gun organizations (and some physicians) are seeking to blur this distinction by declaring “gun violence” to be a “public health” problem.

Like many physicians, I’ve seen numerous unfortunate gun-related injuries and deaths over the years. I understand the perspective of fellow physicians who are appalled by gun violence. After the 2012 Sandy Hook murders, ER physician Dr. David Newman wrote a moving piece for the New York Times entitled, “At the ER, Bearing Witness to Gun Violence.” He recounted tragic tales of innocent children injured by firearms. He called gun violence an “American epidemic” that posed a “threat to public health.” Dr. Newman also declared, “I have sworn an oath to heal and to protect humans. Guns, invented to maim and destroy, are my natural enemy.”

A notice to MDA, EveryTown,

Just a personal notice to all
you anti-gun activists.

Dear anti-freedom extremists.  While you're going around, puffing up your chest and proclaiming your piddling little victories, in getting a few businesses to cave in to your craven demands, know this.  My right to freedom of expression, my right to self defense, and the tools necessary to exercise that right, as well as my right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness, Trumps your hoplophobic idealism.

So, take your signs, your petitions, your puffery, and your Michael Bloomberg financing, stuff that where the sun don't shine, and sit on it.

Sonic, and Chili's join Jack-in-the-Box, 
Chipotle and Starbuck's in banning guns from premises.

The latest backlash from some Open Carry advocates, demonstrating in front of businesses, or going into any of these locations with their long guns has been more of these businesses asking patrons to leave their guns at home.  I guess they didn't see the story about the "No Guns" posted restaurant in North Carolina that got robbed.  That, or they just don't care.

Now, to be fair, I don't know that any of these stores are going to be posted.  But, their CEO's have published comments to the effect that they prefer their customers leave their guns at home, or at the very least, don't bring them into their business.  I for one, plan to comply.  I will not bring my gun, my money, nor myself into any of these businesses ever again.  At least, not until I know that my firearm is welcome again.  And I will also be sure to pass the word on to all of my relatives, friends, acquaintances, and even strangers I meet at the local Meijer's (which still has no problem with my OCing a holstered pistol) whenever I go shopping.

Keep in mind, if you don't allow legal guns onto your property, you may find yourself facing ILLEGAL guns.  After all, criminals don't obey signs.  That's one of the reasons they're called criminals.

Florida Senate passes law to stop foreign laws from being followed in state courts

Sharia Law stopped in Florida

In a move totally along party lines, Republicans in the Florida State Senate voted to pass a law that will stop the use of foreign laws in their courts. Surprisingly, Democrats voted against it.  This will halt the imposition of Sharia law in Florida courts.  It baffles the mind as to why Democrats would vote against it.  This was one senate democrats excuse.
Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, said she opposed the bill because foreign laws have never been implemented in Florida courts or any other state.
Gee, and you suppose that just because it hasn't been done, it won't?  Wake up and smell the stuff you're shoveling, senator.  I would think that you'd want to make sure that women and children are protected, even from the possibility of something like that happening.  Sheesh.  This law will hopefully, keep things from changing.  We don't want foreign laws followed here.  This is the United States of America, not the Islamic Republic of America.

I am amazed, the democrats are always accusing the Republicans and Conservatives of "waging war on women."  Here, it appears to be the other way around.  What's up with that?

Looking for ammo and can't find it? Try Ammoforsale.com

Ammo For Sale dot Com

Seriously, if you're having trouble finding 9mm, .40 Smith & Wesson, .45ACP or some other caliber, check them out.  While shipping isn't free, if you order more than one box of 20, 25, or 50 rounds, it will balance out.  They've got most of the major brands, and as long as you don't order on a Friday, (or a holiday) it gets to you fairly quick.  My 9mm ammo was ordered Wednesday, it arrived 2 days later on Friday.

Really, check them out for yourself.  You might be pleasantly surprised.

Pay Attention, owners of Chipotle and Starbucks, you might be next!!!

Put up a "No Guns" sign in your business,
and this is what could happen.

(Just in case the link goes dark, the text of the article is below.)
Monday, May 19, 2014 DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Police are searching for three suspects involved in an armed robbery at Durham's newly-opened barbecue restaurant, The Pit, at 321 W. Geer Street.

Authorities said just before 9 p.m. Sunday, three men wearing hoodies entered the restaurant through the back doors with pistols, and forced several staff members to lie on the floor.

The bandits assaulted two employees during the crime, but they were not seriously injured.

"They're doing great," restaurant owner Greg Hatem said. "One of them actually went to the hospital and was released. They took a good look at him, he's fine."

Hatem also said there were a few patrons in the dining room while the robbery was happening in the kitchen area. Workers were able to ask them to leave, and got them out safely through the front door.

"We're offering $2,000 for the arrest and conviction of these guys," Hatem said. "We take this very seriously. We want to make sure our guests and our staff are taken care of."

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200.

Amazing, isn't it. The owner puts a "No Firearms Allowed" sign in the door, and criminals have the audacity to ignore it. That's just horrible. Maybe Moms Demand Action should do something about it. Hold a demonstration outside, demanding that the evil doers stay away from this business, and not bring their guns the next time they intend to rob the place. Yeah, I'm sure that will keep them away.

(In case you missed it, that was sarcasm.)

NAGR is NOT Pro-2nd Amendment!!

National Association for Gun Rights is
NOT a Pro-2nd Amendment Organization.
I say this based on several discoveries.  First, they have apparently made their money by attacking every other major pro-gun group.  Like SAF, NRA and others.  Most recently, Alan Gotlieb of SAF has been their victim.  Unfortunately for NAGR, SAF is not taking it sitting down.  From SAF's response to the latest attack.
In his latest effort to raise money for his own self-aggrandizement, Dudley Brown has launched a vicious canard against Alan Gottlieb, accusing the veteran gun rights advocate of “Leading the fight for national gun registration.” 
Alan Gottlieb has never advocated for gun registration in his life. His legislative efforts have been to prevent that, and Dudley knows it.
Sean Tonner, deputy chief of staff for former Republican Colorado Gov. Bill Owens, was quoted by The Denver Magazine, asserting, “All Dudley wanted to do was create controversy. He makes his money when there’s turmoil, real or perceived, because that’s what gets his members to write him checks.”
And this is just their latest attack on a major pro gun organization.  It makes me wonder, perhaps Mr. Brown is a sheep in wolves clothing.  Someone from the left, trying to look like he's from the right, in an effort to sow discord amongst gun owners and those that actually fight for our right to keep and bear arms.

You have to actually ask the questions that SAF is asking, "Where was Dudley?"  Seriously, look at the following again from SAF's response to his attack on Mr. Gottlieb.

The Second Amendment Foundation has championed gun rights legal actions and won in federal courts and the U.S. Supreme Court. Remember, it was SAF that took McDonald v. City of Chicago to the Supreme Court and won. Where was Dudley?
SAF and CCRKBA have conducted the annual Gun Rights Policy Conference for more than 25 years, bringing together major gun rights leaders with grassroots activists to unify and expand the gun rights movement. Where was Dudley? 
When SAF and the National Rifle Association joined forces to stop the unconstitutional gun grab in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, where was Dudley? 
When SAF and NRA joined forces to defeat the San Francisco gun ban, where was Dudley? 
When SAF, NRA and CCRKBA joined forces to defeat the City of Seattle’s parks gun ban – thus strengthening state preemption in Washington state and providing a lesson for anyone who might challenge other states’ preemption laws, where was Dudley? 
When the International Association for the Protection of Civilian Arms Rights (IAPCAR) was created, Alan Gottlieb was there to help bring together an organization that now has member groups from every continent and several nations. Where was Dudley? 
When multi-national gun rights organizations gather in Europe to resist global gun control efforts, Alan Gottlieb is there, but where is Dudley?
Even before this, there is a message thread on Gunbroker dot com's forum about his activities. And that is 4 years old.  Whatever you do, don't send your money to this guy.  He doesn't make a living protecting your 2nd amendment rights.  He does it by attacking other pro 2nd amendment organizations.  Don't let him get away with his smear tactics.

Fly the Gadsen flag, get suspended from school

As high school seniors near graduation, they very often pull senior pranks. One young man in Colorado, however, was suspended from school and banned from graduation because of his prank. The incident caused no damage to the school and was pretty harmless. But, the visual of what he did angered his high school principal so much that she immediately lost it and went on a rampage. His prank? Raising the freedom representing Gadsden flag on the school’s flagpole.

Gay bashing on the rise in NYC

I have to wonder, if this would be going on, IF NYC didn't have such strict gun control laws.  Mayor Bloomberg would have everyone believe that only the police and the military need firearms.  Yet, Gays are getting pounded on more often now, than in the recent past.

Any time I've had a conversation with some anti-gun fanatic, and I ask them, "What should I do if I'm attacked?" their stock answer is, "Call the police."  Like that's gonna keep me from getting my brains bashed in.  I have to wonder, do they live in the "real" world, where the police usually show up AFTER the damage is done, or what.

I have a Michigan Concealed Pistol License, and I carry every day.  And even though, I can carry concealed, I've jumped on the Open Carry bandwagon, and you know what, no one has attacked me yet.  Now some might suggest it's my size.  I stand 6 feet 2 inches tall, and I weigh about 270 pounds.  Yet others will suggest it's the nickel plated .45 automatic pistol that I carry.  I like to think it's my charming manner that keeps people friendly toward me.

In any event, everyone in the LGBT community should take a hint, protect yourself.  Do whatever you have to, to stay alive.

Democrat’s ‘Universal Background Check’ bill discriminates against same-sex couples

Posted on March 14, 2013 by John Pierce

As if same-sex couples were not faced with enough social and legal bigotry, the so-called ‘Universal Background Check’ bill being pushed by Democrats adds the threat of being made a felon for simply going on a long business trip.
