It’s funny how, as Americans buy record numbers of guns, our fine political betters are have a ‘conversation’ about how they’re going to take our guns.

In Tenn. everybody was all excited about the “I can sue you if you take my gun for your gun-free zone” law.

But that’s not what it does. It exempts from being sued people who don’t post the signs. Ummm wut?

Once again, Tennesseans have been deceived and cheated by Establishment Republicans in public office… starting with Brian Kelsey and aided by Sen. Dolores Gresham who apparently accepted the amendment and let it be carried in her name.

(Quoth Uncle V) The new law makes absolutely no sense to me; let the business owner, etc. off the hook because they didn’t post??

Exactly. On both points.

What’s up with Tenn? I’m embarrassed that AZ has Jeff Flake and John Fucking McCain, but Tenn’s GOP appears even worse.

In CA, they don’t have a GOP that feels it has to throw fish at GOP voters, so they’re just going for the throat.

Their new laws are mostly stupid

that will require people to turn in high-capacity (sic, they mean standard capacity V) magazines

 

Voluntarily turn in magazines. Yeah, I can see that happening. And then, many Californians are felons because of a hunk of metal, or polymer, with a spring that holds other objects.

This is just fucked up.

Gun makers developed bullet buttons to get around California’s assault weapons ban, which prohibited new rifles with magazines that can be detached without the aid of tools. A bullet buttons allows a shooter to quickly dislodge the magazine using the tip of a bullet or other small tool.

WTF?

Eh, if they want to be where our civil war (revolution?) starts, fine with me. It has to start somewhere.

Although I would have bet VA the way the lefties voted in by the NOVA gov’t workers are trying to screw up the state.

Dems filibuster for gun control

Meanwhile, in America, Americans, who love freedom and AR-15s, owned by at least 5 millions Americans, and rising quickly the more our fine social, moral, political, intellectual and social betters try to take them, the more we buy them.

 

  • Gun sales have soared since the tragedy as enthusiast fear the weapons may be banned or restricted in the wake of the massacre
  • Georgia gun shop sold 15 guns an hour yesterday while a Pennsylvania dealer has sold 15,000 semi-automatic weapons since Sunday
  • Smith & Wesson, the Massachusetts-based manufacturer of handguns, shares increased as much as eight per cent the day after the massacre
  • Shares of Connecticut-based Sturm, Ruger & Company saw a more than nine per cent jump in shares on the same day

 

As our fine betters seem hell-bent on finding out, these people are not buying them to turn them in.

It’s gonna get very endy without any real funny except the inherent funny of people with feelings sending other people with guns to take the guns from other people who just want to be left alone so they can use their guns to put holes in paper.

Goodness without wisdom always accomplishes evil. R. A. Heinlein.

Alternatively, the road to revolution is paved with power-mad politicians supported by panty-waist fools.

I just hope everybody waits until the end of the month when I get back to AZ so I can point and laugh at NYers, and other Dem fiefs, finding out they’ve acted stupidly.

 

I have to admit, after the terror attack in Tampa I have become in favor of gun control.

The Orlando nightclub terrorist who pledged allegiance to ISIS worked almost a decade for a major Department of Homeland Security contractor…

… held two firearms licenses and a security officer license,

Let’s keep guns out of the hands of government.

For The Children.

 

Whenever some asshole says, ‘This shows we need gun control’, remind that fascist asshole that this murderous coward would have had a gun no matter how they make sure I can’t get one.

Jebus, just when I think I hate people enough, someone comes along to make me lose all faith and respect for someone I thought I liked.

Retired Gen. David Petraeus announced Friday he’s partnering with former astronaut Mark Kelly (Mr. Gabby Giffords V) to create a gun control group for veterans.

 

Mudder pocker. And no, by ‘gun control’ he does not mean ‘on target’ but the usual, “For Your Own Good” bullshit.

Why is he doing that?

The idea behind the group is to curb rampant veteran suicide rates.

 

You know, cuz, as everybody knows, suicidal people will not commit suicide if they have no access to evil guns.

And of course, there are no other problems that are causing the deaths of veterans that Petraeus might want to look into.

 

I recently received an odd, frantic email from some wannabe politico in search of a conservative blogger who would write a column about Obamacare and jobs to save Tom Corbett’s re-election campaign from itself. As if such a Column to End All Columns could be written.

I don’t want to be too hard on this fellow, as I too sometimes suffer from wannabe-ism. Far less so than in the past, as I become more jaded and more likely to just give up and flee the state. I have little hope for an electorate that thought “binders full of women” was a substantive and revealing gotcha against Romney. I’m still not even exactly sure what that binders thing was all about.

Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree. Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run.

It’s getting difficult and slinking toward impossible to defend the Affordable Care Act…

Well, we passed that stage a long time ago for anybody noticing reality, this guy actually had the lack of sense to write this.

The White House has politicized its signature policy.

Seriously? They just politicized it? Fool.

I’ve always been in favor of freedom of expression, but lately I’ve become a free-speech absolutist. It takes all sorts to make a world and I’ve met a lot of them over the years, and I can stand pretty much anything anyone says about anything — until someone says to me, “You can’t say that.” At which point my inclination is to punch his lights out. I do this not just because I’m a violent psychopath with a hair-trigger temper, but to make the important point that in societies where you’re not free to speak your mind — to argue and debate — the only way to express disagreement is through violence.

Eggs-fucking-zactly. Steyn usually gets it just right.

Following numerous reports of improper arrests and firearm seizures throughout California, Roseville-based gun rights group The Calguns Foundation has issued a new warning to gun owners in the Golden State.

“Gun confiscation efforts pushed by Attorney General Kamala Harris have apparently led to unconstitutional arrests of regular, non-prohibited gun owners as well as the seizure of their firearms and ammunition,”

Registration always leads to confiscation, but you’d know that if you ever read this blog.

Gov. Scott Walker used his election-year State of the State address Wednesday to rally support for his plans to use the majority of Wisconsin’s $912 million in unexpected revenue for tax cuts.

The shooter at Arapahoe High School (not going to name him, he doesn’t deserve the recognition) came armed for massacre, including extra ammunition, a machete, and Molotov cocktails. It’s fairly obvious from the amount of weaponry carried that the shooter had no intentions of simply killing his debate coach. Few news outlets are reporting on why the attack was cut short, though. It wasn’t because the targeted debate coach had left the school, and it wasn’t because the shooter suddenly had an attack of conscience.

The reason the shooter suddenly stopped his attack and killed himself was because Arapahoe High School had an armed school resource officer who confronted him. The shooter felt he was cornered and killed himself.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson had this to say:

We believe that the response from the  school resource officer … was absolutely critical to the fact that we did not have additional injury and/or death in this particular matter.

I think we have our proof of concept for armed school officers saving lives.
