“Gun Safety’s” Strategy, One More Time

ConfiscationYesterday, the Poser In Chief, to much fanfare, announced another round of (redundant) Gun Control Safety initiatives, designed to keep him from having to forcea tear or national television.

Nothing he announced is new, and nothing he announced would have prevented the attacks on Sandy Hook, San Bernardino, or Paris.

So, I just wanted to remind everyone, once again, what the real end game is.

The Government is going to eventually expand background checks to nominally include all sales, even those between private individuals. This will likely happen because some much publicized event will happen, and it will be found that the gun was bought from a private seller (better, at a gun show) by someone who was otherwise prohibited from owning a gun. Never mind that what they did was already against the law, there will be a loud call for Universal Background Checks, and it will happen.

In the wording of the new law (or Executive Order or ATF sub-rule, it doesn’t matter) this will apply to all  “transfers,” which the average person will understand to mean a sale, and which will also be explained to mean a gift or an inheritance.

But then the ATF will, suddenly and dramatically, remind us that handing the gun to a friend at the shooting range is, in fact a transfer. And both parties are then arrested and convicted dramatically, and stripped of all future rights as convicted felons.

There will suddenly be a police presence at gun ranges, to prevent these horrible crimes. This will go on, dramatically, for one or two years. But the overall number of gun crimes will not correspondingly decline. Now, it may decline in fact, but the media will make sure that is not apparent.

Then, eventually, the Antis will make the announcement that, since these simple Common Sense Gun Safety changes have made no difference, it must be because the Ebil Militia is still getting guns.

And some Horrible Tragedy will occur (the more children involved, the better, in their eyes) and there will be a clamor for Confiscation.

And our once supportive members of congress will cave. And they will call for confiscation.

The Second Amendment may or may not be repealed, but, for all intents and purposes, this will be the end of freedom as we know it.

At that time, it will be up to us gun owners to decide which side we are on. It won’t be a time for slogans or protests or social media.

I have already decided.

And I pray every day that I am wrong.


Proof That Media Bias is Designed Into the System

OKC Crash

On Saturday, October 24, an allegedly drunk woman ran her car into a crowd at the end of the Homecoming parade at Oklahoma State University, killing at least 4 people, and injuring over 30. A nation waited for news, and struggled to understand how someone could do something like this.

The next day, the Traverse City, Michigan, newspaper the Record-Eagle ran this story about the event on page 3.


At first glance, one would think the headline writer neglected to read the article.

But then the Record-Eagle upped the derp in its retraction by admitting what we already suspected:

Clearing record

At first I thought they were blaming the printing team. But now I see that this belies their assumption that incidents of multiple deaths or injuries must involve a shooter. Not a driver, or an earthquake, or a flood. And this assumption is so ingrained, they made it their normal page design.

I guess in the race to get the attention of the gun haters, it pays to save time any way you can.



The Right Kind of Reciprocity

On Wednesday, Governor Wayne LePage of Maine signed a law making Maine the sixth State to not require any permit to carry a concealed weapon.

As I have stated before, given the patently racist nature of gun permits in America, we should take advantage of the current public outrage against anything remotely discriminatory, and push for an elimination of all permit requirements.

At least this is a start. Well done, Maine.

Yet Another Open Carry Idiot

Okay, we get it. Open carry is legal, and a protected part of our Second Amendment rights.

Yet, another idiot decides he will open carry at the busiest airport in the world, because it’s his right. And, in typical and totally expected fashion, the left call for More Laws. Because it’s obvious we have to stop this man, and of course the real terrorists who attack airports in places like Los Angeles will be stopped. Well done, Hank Johnson.

But back to the idiot shown above, what he fails to consider (or considers, and totally discounts, which may be worse) is, as I have pointed out, on more that one occasion, that this puts fear in the hearts of those who otherwise have no opinion on the issue. As with most issues, we on one side or the other see it as 50 – 50. In truth most things in America are at best 45 – 10 – 45, with a 10 percent core that doesn’t really care one way or the other, and they go with the wind.

And, it is those core 10 percent who we may have to rely on, should a vote ever come up to repeal the Second Amendment. But if we scare the living pants off them with our open carry antics, we may see the wind shift.

So please, stop being stupid on open carry.*



*DISCLAIMER – As always, I am not saying that all those who open carry are stupid. I open carry on occasions where it is warranted. But if you open carry to prove some point about open carry, that’s stupid.
