Want to stop the school shootings? Take a lesson from Israel

Yup, Israel, the Holy Land. They know how to stop school massacres. Arm the teachers, arm the older students, and have parents do volunteer shifts, armed of course. Don't believe me? Check out the story.

I got a new shirt!

Yup, got a new shirt, I just love it!

CCW post of the day

I just love it when a plan comes together.

Suspects caught in act of burglarizing home in Lonedell
Tri-County Journal

Two suspects are in custody after a Lonedell man caught them burglarizing a house.

On Tuesday, Sept. 19, Franklin County deputies responded to a call about an interrupted burglary at a Lonedell house.

Police said the wife of the homeowner had driven by the house and saw a truck backed up to the porch. The house was unoccupied, police said.

The homeowner and his father-in-law returned to the house and the two suspects tried to flee. The father-in-law, a registered concealed carry permit holder, drew his gun and ordered the two suspects to the ground.

The suspects complied and the father-in-law kept the suspects on the ground until police arrived.

The suspects, a 50-year-old St. Clair man and an 18-year-old Lonedell man, were arrested and later confessed to stealing items from the house.

Their names are being withheld pending issuance of warrants.

Fantastic Item of the Day


YES!! Finally, a TV show for us "gun nuts." Yeah, I know, there are other shows on OutDoor Channel that have guns, but most of those are hunting shows. I don't hunt. I do however, practice safe self defense. ;)

And this is the show to watch! In case you missed it, Episode one will air again on Thursday Morning (09/28/06) at 11:30AM Eastern Time, and also on Sunday (10/01/06) at 11:30AM ET.

I highly recommend you watch it!

For more info, check out this link.

Stupid item of the day

From the Philadelphia Daily News:

ANTI-VIOLENCE advocates will meet for prayer today on the steps of the state Capitol and later rally for stricter gun laws to stop the killing on the streets of Philadelphia and other Pennsylvania cities.

Mayor Street, community, religious and labor leaders, city residents and Philadelphia legislators planned to attend the rally in the Capitol rotunda hoping to influence lawmakers, many of them from rural areas opposed to gun control.

For the rest of the story, click on the story head line, or click here.

What is it about liberals and left wing weenies that they have no commone sense? Do they REALLY believe that gun control laws work? Haven't they seen the statistics for Chicago, NYC, Los Angeles, and DC? And now they think that a "one gun a month" law will work? Puhleeze! Wake up and smell the latte!

The "stated reason" is to cut down on straw purchases, where a bad guy uses someone who is not prohibited from buying a gun, to buy one from an FFL dealer. All the bad guy has to do is get a group of non-prohibited people to do his dirty work, rather than relying on one person.

This will actually make it more difficult to track the bad guy now, since everyone will have a limit of one gun a month, no one will have a "flag" pop up so that BATFE will know to look at them.

Makes me glad I don't live in Philly or Pennsylvania!

Very sad news

We have been told that Col. Jeff Cooper passed away today.

Rest In Peace Colonel, you've earned it.

A Rational Voice?? Yeah, in a pig's ear.

In case you haven't seen it yet, there's this Neo-Lib (as in Neo-Nazi) site called "The Raw Story, A rational voice - Alternative news." Well, they got it half right. It is alternative news. But I would not call it "a rational voice." In one particular story, about former CA congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham,", the story it's self is one sided. Telling ONLY that story of his obviously disgruntled wife.

While I'm certain she may have legitimate grievances against the former congressman, her story is nothing compared to the vitriol and viscious attacks made by the readers. When I looked at the story, there were 41 responses, all negative, some attacking Mr. Cunningham, and some just attacking anything and everything related to the GOP. What gets me, the Neo-Libs have long called us hate-mongers. Yet, all they can spew is hate when they talk about us.

Of course, when I finally got through reading the story, and decided to look at the website as a whole, I found out why it was so anti-GOP. The whole site is devoted to being GOP-bashing. They've got a fake ad in the right side bar, "Bush's Brain, $4.95, download to own." I know free speech is one of our cornerstone rights. So I hope everyone will understand when I say that "The Raw Story" is just plain full of bull manure. And I hope they all choke on it.

Of course, as always, this is only my opinion. But this is America, and I'm entitled to my opinion, and my right to express it.

There is no such thing as an Illegal gun

You REALLY need to read the story. The link to it, is the title of this post. Or you can click here. It is a fascinating read.

The Truth Finally comes out

First, from the Huffingtion Post Blog, we have the story of a shooting that took place in Seattle, WA, on July 28, 2006, where the shooter supposedly had a Washington state Concealed Pistol license. Now we find out, Naveed Haq, the shooter, had waited 5 days to pick up the pistols he used in the shooting. The question, if he had a valid permit, why wait? Our understanding is, with a valid permit, he could have taken the pistols home right away.

From the ChronWatch, we find out why.

Apparently Mr. Haq had some mental problems. As well, he had a pending criminal case against him in Benton County Court. With just the diagnosed mental problem, his permit (if he had one) was effectively null and void. This is according to Washington state law.

Of course, we're not likely to see a correction in either the newspaper story, or the Huffington Post Blog. But at least now, the truth is out there.

Humourless People can bite my butt.

WHY is it, some people don't see the Humor in the South Park Character, Big Gay Al? And what stupid homophobic bigot, came up with the idea of complaining "it's a stereotype that's derogatory to gays." That's such an obivous ploy to attack me, it's not even funny.

What I mean is, it might be funny, if PlanetOut magazine hadn't already declared South Park's creators as "honorary Homos." Quite obviously, a salute to the creators for their humorous attacks made at EVERYONE, regardless of race, sex, religion or sexual orientation.

So, to those of you who object to my usage of the SP character as an Avatar/icon on various forums, get a life, get a sense of humour, and kiss my big, white hairy butt!

Oh, and have a nice day!

Sad news for the pistol shooting community

We were told last night that the venerable Col. Jeff Cooper is seriously ill, and not expected to live much longer. We pray for his recovery, or assuming that is not possible, a swift and painless death. While we know this is not the usual death of a warrior, given his long years, we think he deserves a peaceful death.

We were introduced to the writings of Col. Cooper many moons ago, through the pages of Guns & Ammo magazine. While we have not always agreed with him, we have have found his musings, opinions, and advice to be worth a hundred times his weight in gold. He is the eternal promoter and defender of the Colt M1911 as THE self-defense handgun, and the .45ACP as THE self-defense Cartridge. He is also the father of the 10mm Auto Pistol cartridge, which he deemed a worthy successor to the .45ACP. He is also the dean, (if not the father) of modern defensive pistol technique.

Our prayers and well wishes go to him and his family.

We will miss him.

Disabled New Yorker defends herself with a gun...and she's NOT ARRESTED!!!

Yup, that's right. A woman in a wheel chair, used a properly permitted .357 magnum revolver to fend of a mugger in NEW YORK CITY!!! Her would be mugger got a slug in the elbow, treated at a hospital, and is now facing charges robbery....again.

You can find the story if you click on the heading of this posting, above. And also at This link.

What I find amazing, the would be victim, Ms. Johnson, is the step-daughter of Harlem gangster Ellsworth "Bumpy" Johnson, and she STILL received a premises permit in draconian New York City! According to the story on the Gothamist, she got it when she was a bus driver. A job from which she is now retired.

Honestly, I don't begrudge Ms. Johnson her pistol permit. I just wish it was easier for law-abiding Citizens, like Ms. Johnson to get pistol permits in NYC. I think it's just HORRIBLE that Mayor Bloomberg doesn't see the advantage. But then he wouldn't. He's already got his own personal police bodyguard.

UN report proclaims self-defense is not a right

The UN has proclaimed to the world, self-defense is NOT a human right! (To read a better analysis than mine, click on the title above, which is a link to David Hardy's opinion on the UN report.)

Frankly, I think it's past time for the US to get OUT of the UN. The vast majority of those in power in the UN are members of the vast left wing conspiracy group. All they do is take our money, then complain about how "bad" we Americans are. I'm sorry, but why should we have to pay to have someone complain about us, to us?

I say we tell the UN to "bugger off." Maybe they'd be happier in Sweden, France, or Belgium.
