Anti-Gunners: Like a Broken Record

Well first a sad note:

Eight people were slain in Boston in a span of 10 days, including a 24-year-old woman police said was fatally shot Monday night sitting in a car outside an apartment building on Charles Street in Dorchester.

Her death by multiple gunshots, police said, came at approximately 9:35 p.m. raised the city’s 2018 homicide toll to 47 — four more slay victims than on the same date last year.

The Violence in Boston is no joke. Unfortunately the politicians here ARE a joke:

“We’re looking into the past histories of some of these folks that have been involved in these shootings — the people who have shot and the people who have been shot,” Walsh said.

“Again, these are eight incidents that we are not happy about. It’s a pretty tough situation when you think about how do we get to the bottom of it.”

Police have confiscated 581 firearms this year, according to department spokesman officer James Kenneally.

“We’re taking guns off the street, that’s not the issue,” Walsh said. “The issue is too much access to guns.”

That’s Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, successor to Mayor-For-Life (Literally, unfortunately) Thomas “Mumbles” Menino, who was the Co-Founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns with none other than Michael Bloomberg. Mayors Against Illegal Guns has since been Re-Branded to Everytown after a bulk of their mayoral constituents went to prison.

So yeah Marty Walsh is insanely anti-gun. What is insane is that Massachusetts is by my measure the MOST anti-gun state in the country. People might claim that California has that award. Nope, In California you can buy a gun without a permit. Both states will refuse to issue permits if you live in high-crime areas, even if you are a good person, and EVEN if you have documented threats against your life. Both states have a “Handgun Safety Roster” where common firearms are not legal for sale….tho given that you can’t legally buy a new Glock in this state, I would give an advantage to Massachusetts….Boston cops carry Glock 17 and 19s, but I can’t buy one because they “aren’t safe”. California has a draconian Assault Weapons ban requiring all sorts of crazy modifications to the gun to make it comply….Massachusetts you cannot own most semi-auto rifles, and technically you can go to prison for a gun you and everyone in the state thought was “Compliant”. There is such a thing as a “California Compliant AR-15” there is No such thing for Massachusetts.

Further Boston is one of the cities where the Chief of Police WILL not issue a non-restricted permit and while I haven’t read of any specific cases of a law-abiding citizen being denied a permit for frivolous reasons, the previous Chief of Boston PD directly lobbied the Massachusetts Legislature to make the Massachusetts FID (The Permit generally issued to 18-20 year olds, that only allows ownership of long guns not classified as “High Capacity”) switched from a Shall Issue to a May issue. This is how hostile to legal gun owners the political animals of Boston are.

Yet all of these egregious violations of the Second Amendment Rights of Bostonians and all Residents of Massachusetts, and we have an insane gun violence problem. Moreover when questioned the Mayor says the solution is less “Access To Guns”. You mean like in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont? Three of the most gun-FRIENDLY states in the country (The Most if Vermonters can repeal their stupid Magazine ban, and their denial of rights to people under the age of 21) who all have very low violent crime numbers.

I have literally had anti-gun nuts say to me “But can you imagine what the violent crime would be like if they DIDN’T have all those laws!”

Never mind that EVERY time a gun control law is repealed at WORST violent crime numbers stay the SAME….generally violent crime numbers go down.

So yeah Boston has a Violent crime problem, and the powers that be would rather do things that have been proven to make them WORSE rather than better.

Huge Press Release for Operation Blazing Sword and Pink Pistols

This was announce at the Gun Rights Policy Conference in Chicago last weekend, and it’s HUGE NEWS

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (Sept 23, 2018) – The 33rd Annual Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC 2018) in Chicago became the site of a historic announcement for the LGBTQ community. The Pink Pistols – the nation’s first pro-gay, pro-gun group – is joining forces with Operation Blazing Sword, a program dedicated to firearm education, training and support for the LGBTQ community. This merger results in the creation of the single largest queer pro-gun group in history. In further news, Gwendolyn Patton, legendary First Speaker of the Pink Pistols, has been succeeded by Erin Palette, the Founder of Operation Blazing Sword. Ms. Palette will serve as Coordinator for both factions of the newly-formed LGBTQ Super Group.
Founded in 2000, Pink Pistols had a simple mission: “We teach queer people to shoot. Then we teach others that we have done so.” Beyond training, the Pistols also successfully filed numerous amicus briefs in high profile cases. Their membership at the time of merging was estimated to be 30,000 across North America.
Operation Blazing Sword was formed in response to the Pulse Massacre of June 12, 2016. Led by Erin Palette, this fresh platform provides members of the grossly under-served LGBTQ community with access to education in safe firearms handling as well as encouragement to obtain Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) permits where legal. At the time of its merger, Operation Blazing Sword was powered by 1,600 volunteer instructors from all walks of life – conservative, liberal, straight, queer, transgender, and cisgender.
During her acceptance speech, Ms. Palette recalled the early days of Pink Pistols, when being outed as queer often resulted in loss of one’s job or worse. It was for this reason, Palette explained, that national member lists were not maintained. By keeping Pink Pistol factions regional its members’ privacy was protected from subpoena, but this dramatically limited the scope of Pink Pistol chapters’ community outreach.
The announcements at GRPC 2018 herald in a new era of LGBTQ Second Amendment support and activism. On this topic, Palette passionately asserted that “the ability to connect…is crucial.” Since Operation Blazing Sword is a 501c3 tax deductible charity, funds can now be raised at a national level to help chapters in need, whether that is to rent a booth at a Pride Festival, buy ammunition for a range day, or hold a community seminar. “After all,” reminded Palette, “the most powerful sword is the one wielded by two hands.”

I’ve know Erin for a long time, first as just another gun-blogger, then she took a risk and revealed to me that she was transgender….which changed exactly nothing in my views of her. We later began to work directly together with the Gun Blog Variety Cast. Durring this time and in the wake of the Terrorist Attack on the Pulse Night Club in Florida Erin founded and launched Operation Blazing Sword, which was a herculean task not to be underestimated.

Now this merger is a HUGE step to help bring pro-Gun LGBTQ people into political power, and help break through the misinformation that seems to permeate that community.

I am bursting with pride!
