If THIS guy is really a member of the ACLU.....

I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. Then again, maybe I should. A certain self-proclaimed Nazi, Phil Bredeson, says he works for the ACLU. He even has a blog on blogger. (click the title of this article to see it, if you really want to.) And in this blog, short as it is, he maintains that Adolf Hitler is his hero, that Gays and Jews are out to take over the world, and that he can't stand contrary viewpoints. Your basic fringe claims of "I like free speech, as it applies to me, but you don't get any" rhetoric.

He even posted a reply to one of my posts, regarding the ACLU. His reply, "F**k you, gun shooter." I didn't delete his reply, maybe I should. After all, this is my blog, not his, so I don't have to put up with his bullshit.

Frankly, even though I disagree with the ACLU, I've always held a certain level of respect for them. However, if this guy really does work for the ACLU, I may have to re-think that opinion of mine.

Don't take your guns to Shreveport.

Argue With Everyone

Welcome to Shreveport: Your rights are now suspended.According to Cedric Glover, mayor of Shreveport, Louisiana, his cops “have a power that [. . .] the President of these Unites States does not have”: His cops can take away your rights.

Better yet, leave your bumper stickers at home. When you get pulled over, because you have some political bumper stickers that the cops don't like? Well, slap on a black shirt and yell "Sieg Heil!" Welcome to the fourth Reich!

Follow up to Tennessee gun laws

It's come to my attention that some people think I'm critical of the new law in Tennessee that allows CCW holders to go into establishments that serve alcohol with their guns.

On the contrary, I think it's a GREAT change in their handgun permit law. People who take the time, trouble, and spend the money to get a permit so they can legally defend themselves from the bad guys (Who, by the way will NEVER obey a law that says they can't carry a gun) should be considered trustworthy enough to let them take their gun, ANYWHERE they are legally allowed to be.

And for those who think there are too many guns on the street, get the bad guys to quit packing, and I will too....nah, I lied.

I think it's silly to give someone a permit/license that says the can carry a gun to defend themselves, then turn around and say, "Wait!! You can defend yourself here, but not here. It's ok to carry your gun in this store, but not that one."

It kind of defeats the purpose, don't you think?

And no, I don't have anything better to do in Michigan right now.

Tennesseans Not trustworthy with guns in bars??

I sent an email to Nashville's channel 4, in regard to the story of Randy Rayburn trying to stop a new law going into effect that would allow those with a handgun permit (what ever it's called in your state, Concealed Pistol License in mine) to be able to protect themselves in establishments that serve alcohol. Below is the email I sent.

I've been reading, with great interest, your story on the attempt to stop the new law in Tennessee that would allow handgun carry permit holders to take their weapons into establishments where alcohol is served. I find it funny, as there are several states where this is already legal.

In my state of Michigan, I can take my pistol into any establishment that serves alcohol as long as they make less than 50% of their income from the sale of alcohol. Basically, restaurants. If I travel an hour or so south west, into Indiana, I can walk into a bar with my pistol there.

In Virginia, I can carry in those same places, but I would have to uncover and therefore, open carry my pistol. I'm told, I could even drink in the state of Washington. Not that I would. Drinking while carrying a firearm is a bad idea. In my opinion.

But I have to wonder, is there something wrong with Tennesseans that make them less trustworthy? Is that why Mr. Rayburn brought his suit and attempted to stop a law that's already in effect in more than a few other states?

Maybe this is the question that should be asked of him.
