By now, most, I’m sure, have heard of the horror perpetrated by a Utah high school girl, one Keziah Daum. It is an offense of unimaginable proportions, a provocation that threatens to tear asunder the fabric of multi-cultural, diverse, tolerant society. That’s right: she wore a red dress of a generically Asian style—maybe Chinese-ish–to prom. […]
There’s been a recent rash of celebu-twits mass-shooting-their-mouths-off, about gun control. Nothing new there….to include the hypocrisy of their armed security.
What’s apparently gaining some sort of faux-gravitas amongst this virtue-signaling, naval gazing crowd of self-important sock puppets……is calling the NRA – a membership driven organization of 5+ million members…..a “terrorist organization”.
I’m going to politicize the fuck out of it, and so should you.
The NRA is a terrorist organization. https://t.co/UsoQBIxWpf

Now, if there were an ounce of logic behind this absurd canard, wouldn’t it be the moral obligation, and civic duty to either eliminate NRA members, or [given that these snowflakes wouldn’t dream of ditching their faux tough talk for actual action] call law enforcement on NRA members.
Please….please call law enforcement on every NRA member that you come across. That should work out well for you. Otherwise….STFU.
David French from the National Review laid out 3 reasons why an Assault Weapons ban is bad policy. The National Review: First, an assault-weapons ban is irrelevant to suicide deaths. The large majority of gun deaths are suicides, and there is no credible argument that an assault-weapons ban will have the slightest effect on suicide. I’m […]
Title quotation marks mine, since there is no such animal as an “assault weapon”, outside of emotional, leftist circles…..
Today, we see thousands of naive puppets descend upon our Nation’s capital……mindlessly regurgitating spoon-fed talking points, and basking in the unquestioning spotlight of the national infotainment-media complex.
They descend upon the Mall, passing by the National Archives, where our Founding documents are preserved; documents that were painstakingly drafted, argued over and ratified….protecting the natural rights of the American Citizen. The irony will be lost upon these masses.
They descend upon the Mall, perfidiously lying about the civil and Constitutional right of firearm ownership and self defense….while protected by legions of armed agents of the State and the pervasive surveillance apparatus.
They descend upon the Mall….incredulously asking….nay, begging the State to further infringe, if not remove, a Constitutional right.
How can the Republic stand, if the masses yearn to be not free?
I’ve written of this in the past, likely on my old blog….but as daughter #2 [a champion Irish Dancer] is making the rounds of parades again, including today’s Washington D.C. parade, I’m compelled to revisit it.
In the current age of people looking to be offended, by screeching “cultural appropriation” anytime someone ‘violates’ an invented, Leftist social norm…and doesn’t possess the proper skin hue….why is St. Patrick’s Day overlooked?
Where are these ‘offended’ snowflakes, when thousands, if not millions of Americans equate being Irish with ginger hair, short stature and….drunkeness?
Skin color. Period.
Leftist snowflakes = racists.
Whiny Op-Ed in the WaPo:
The phenomenon isn’t new, but in the weeks since the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., a lot of gun-skeptical liberals are getting a taste of it for the first time: While debating the merits of various gun control proposals, Second Amendment enthusiasts often diminish, or outright dismiss their views if they use imprecise firearms terminology. Perhaps someone tweets about “assault-style” weapons, only to be told that there’s no such thing. Maybe they’re reprimanded that an AR-15 is neither an assault rifle nor “high-powered.” Or they say something about “machine guns” when they really mean semiautomatic rifles. Or they get sucked into an hours-long Facebook exchange over the difference between the terms clip and magazine.
Has this happened to you? If so, you’ve been gunsplained: harangued with the pedantry of the more-credible-than-thou firearms owner, admonished that your inferior knowledge of guns and their nomenclature puts an asterisk next to your opinion on gun control.
If you think that you’re going advocate for legislation, based on a faulty and misguided [if not outright perfidious] position on gun control…..you’d better expect to be corrected. On no other issue that I can think of, do we give credibility to significant legislative actions, impacting millions upon millions of people, based on provably faulty information, and above all…..emotion.
This is all the more evident by the beatification of the Parkland “activists”, where by media sock puppets and Statists refer to teenagers who were in the vicinity of a mass shooting as ….gun control “experts”. Laughably sad.
Originally posted on The Foxhole: This beat down on Dems over their bullshit, is one of the best I’ve ever seen. From Biz Pac Review Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas engaged in such a harsh dose of truth telling over the Second Amendment and how to prevent gun violence that Democrats were forced to put themselves…
He’s a stones throw from me, and running for U.S. Senate in November, barring any scandal…he will have my vote.

A random letter to the editor sums up the gun control camps argument, being built upon a crumbling foundation of emotion:
The AR-15 rifle is not an assault weapon. AR stands for Armalite Rifle and it is a platform, not a rifle. While most people equate the AR-15 platform with military variants, the company was actually founded, in 1954, with the goal of developing civilian market guns using modern materials and manufacturing technologies. So when people tell me it is a weapon of war, I try to share the facts. It was not until 1963 that the United States Air Force purchased 85,000 M-16s, which was a fully automatic rifle with serious upgraded metallurgy. I explain it simply, an AR is a Chevy Malibu with a racing stripe; it is not an Indy Car. Any real gun knowledgeable veteran will tell you these facts are correct.
Many of you have read there was a ban on these rifles from 1994 to 2004. Someone mentions that the NRA lobbied for its removal and then that “Officer and Gentleman” failed to give you all the facts. When Bill Clinton got the ban bill passed it included money for the government to report its impact. After 10 years the report, from the government, stated that there was “no attributable impact to gun violence” with the ban in place. Since 2004, it has been reported that there have been 6 to 10 million sales of this rifle. It is a common use firearm. The reason for that? It is a great training rifle platform. It has seriously low recoil (Like Phil Heron’s BB-Gun) and makes it great for women and youth to learn on. It is customizable to easily fit any student, which increases safety.
As you read people’s writings you may have seen that this rifle fires a bullet that tumbles and shreds its target. I ask you this; a human male averages about 200 pounds, correct? Why then is this rifle caliber of bullet not permitted to be used for hunting deer, which are similar size (200 pounds)? My answer is these people have little understanding of ballistics and impact damage. This caliber, when used in hunting, is used for groundhogs, fox and coyotes.
The flintlock, the percussion cap, the rolling block, the bolt action and the lever action have all been used in United States conflicts at one time or another. This is why when “talking points” are used calling the AR platform a “Weapon of War,” the people who truly know firearms shrug their shoulders.

And it wasn’t just Trayvon Martin, there were hundreds of similar actions taken by conflicted School Resource Officers – totaling thousands of crimes over the course of just the first few years of these programs (2010 through 2013).
CTH contacted the Miami-Dade School District, every single school board member, and the Broward County School District – to warn them of what was taking place.
We provided thousands of pages of sworn affidavits and transcribed testimony from law enforcement. We spent several thousand dollars locating, transcribing and assembling the documents and evidence; and hundreds more hours compiling all the information. –SEE HERE– We sent all of it to both school districts and both school superintendents.
Their response: “go away”.
The school board’s in Miami-Dade and Broward County had created a disastrous scheme and it didn’t take long to see where this was going. The scheme was supported by President Obama’s federal education policy, and executive orders –SEE HERE– and people like Jesse Jackson –SEE HERE– In August of 2012 President Obama issuing an “executive order” establishing the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence. Effectively placing “quotas” on school discipline based on race:
One of the proposals currently being considered, by the Right and the Left….is the notion of “Universal Background Checks” [UBC]. One of the misconceptions used in this argument, is that there is some sort of loophole in the law, often referred to by the ignorant, as a “gun show loophole”. There is nothing of the sort. People attending gun shows wishing to purchase a firearm from a licensed dealer, undergoes the same NICS process as they would a gun show. Those wishing to conduct a purchase from another private citizen selling at the show, does so without NICS, just as they would were they to conduct a transaction with their neighbor.
In no other transaction, do we attempt to require government regulation of the transfer of a lawful item. But back to UBCs….
When we propose legislation, we require an enforcement mechanism. In other words, if you fail to abide in accordance with the law, there is a consequence. With UBCs however, there is no enforcement mechanism, because the State has no means to be apprised if a Citizen has violated the law.
For example, if UBC is statute law, and I sell my firearm to my neighbor without taking him/her to an FFL dealer…..how does the State know? If my neighbor proceeds to use said purchased firearm in the commission of a crime, and is apprehended……unless he/she confesses to the lawful transaction…..how does the State know that the law was violated.
The obvious answer is, that without a mandatory registration of ALL firearms, there is no enforcement mechanism for UBCs.
If you think there is righteous pushback on UBC…..wait until the gun control cabal tries to proffer registration…..
