    Eye deep in idiots

    Last night I witnessed some of the strongest arguments in favor of gun control I have ever seen. It all started out in response to the protest downtown that progressed into some rioting. (The next night, a curfew was imposed and nothing else happened.) A professional comedian, who is black...

    Canada shooting: Gunman kills at least 16 in Nova Scotia.

    It's all a lie. Couldn't have happened. Everybody knows that mass shootings only occur in the US, as a result of our "gun culture." Besides, Canada has strict gun control, and since gun control is the solution to mass shooting problem, therefore Canada cannot have mass shootings. QED. /sarcasm

    "Rumor" in the aftermath of Va Tech shooting

    I commented on an article on theatlantic.com that asserted the "experts agree" that increased background checks are the most effective way to keep guns out of the wrong hands. I pointed out that all recent mass shooters had passed (or avoided) a background check. A guy with the username "Smart...

    Something to consider before your Walmart walk

    This is why we carry. But keep your head on a swivel--it's a dangerous place. FUQs: "Police reports from dozens of stores suggest the number of petty crimes committed on Walmart properties nationwide this year will be in the hundreds of thousands. But people dashing out the door with...

    Truly universal background checks

    For months, there have been calls for new laws to make the Terrorism Watch List and No-Fly List disqualifying for a firearms purchase. Of course, criminals and terrorists don’t always use guns. If we want to keep the world safe for The Children, we need to be more ambitious. So why aren't...

    Judge Ignores LCIA law, Allows Newtown Lawsuit to proceed

    BLUF: liberal judge wither can't read or can read but chooses to ignore the law FUQ: "While the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act generally insulates gun companies from liability, Judge Barbara Bellis said the law could be used to attack the legal sufficiency of the plaintiffs'...

    Prohibition, of guns, alcohol, or anything

    I just watched the PBS documentary Prohibition. I highly recommend it based on the maxim that those who don’t learn history are doomed to repeat it. On the one hand, I’m inclined to start a collection to send a DVD copy to every anti-2A organization to show them what would happen if they ever...

    some decent journalism about mass shootings

    I followed a link from a story about the Oregon shooting to USA Today's Behind the Bloodshed http://www.gannett-cdn.com/GDContent/mass-killings/index.html#title This is a worthwhile read given how much the topic is likely to be discussed in the coming days/weeks. This appears to be some...

    Vindictive Protectiveness

    Many of us have read on this forum about incidents where OCers have dealt with people who claim guns are "offensive", that OCers have no right to scare people, etc. Many of us have asked "how do you deal with someone who..." The online discussions generally exhibit a lot of head-shaking, "I...

    Mass shooting increasing, says Congressional Research Svc

    FUQ from USA Today http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2015/08/04/report-mass-public-shootings-rise/31071301/ "Mass public shootings have increased in frequency from 1.1 a year to 4.5 a year since the 1970s, according to a new report by the Congressional Research Service. The report...

    ATF joins NYPD

    http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2015/06/15/cbs2-exclusive-atf-gun-crime/ At first I thought this might be good news--that NYC might have learned from Richmond's success with "Project Exile," where federal charges were added to state charges to make sure violent criminals were put away for a long...

    M1911A1s thru CMP someday?

    If this amendment passes, I plan to stand in line for one. Might be worth contacting your parasites, er, Congressional delegation in DC to express your support. FUQ from http://www.guns.com/2015/05/08/house-advances-amendment-to-sell-milsurp-1911s-through-cmp/ : "An add-on to the upcoming...

    "Outgunned" on PBS Frontline

    I recently watched an episode of Frontline on PBS, entitled "Outgunned," which focused on how the NRA supposedly prevented and prevents gun control legislation from passing. I fully expected it to be biased, and apparently so did NRA officials since they refused to be interviewed for the...

    Open carry experiment on TV

    Sorry I can't find a direct link to the video: http://www.defensivecarry.com/forum/open-carry-issues-discussions/181069-oc-experiment-local-news.html No surprises: most people don't notice, those who do quickly realize there's no threat, the police chief is opposed. The big take-away from...

    Latest & greatest from the AG!

    The state AG has finally published guidance about signage, concealed vs. open restrictions, and the impact of signage. It's posted at http://www.ago.state.ms.us/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Opinion-to-Clarify-Gun-Carry.pdf The only things that came as a surprise to me were: (1) enhanced carry...

    More PDR of Maryland stupidity

    If the facts are as stated in this article, we clearly have an overzealous prosecutor trying to make political points, or he knows he can't win but wants to punish the shooter financially through legal fees...

    A Tough Nut to Crack (pun intended)

    The latest mass shooting at the Navy Yard follows the disturbing pattern of nearly all mass shootings: a person with a history of mental disturbance clears a background check and legally purchases a weapon. Mayhem ensues. It stands to reason--in order to even contemplate a shooting spree a...

    Mississippi's law regarding "students"

    Recently, I changed status from "plain ol' LAC" to "student." All the gyrations in Mississippi over the past year or so have led me to a pretty serious review of MS gun laws, and I realized that enrolling for any class, anywhere can result in significant curtailment of your carry rights (open...

    Why We Shoot

    Below is a blog post by a guy I worked with in Afghanistan. He's currently living in a liberal/anti-gun area, and he's responding to some hysterical "how dare you enjoy a destructive activity?" outrage. Pardon the typos and punctuation errors--he's an Army guy so it's impressive that he can...
