Mind Blown!

So Via Endo I found this out!

So there’s this guilty Youtube pleasure of mine is Demolition Ranch. It’s essentially Jackass with guns, and a bit smarter.

Still Via ENDO, I found out that Matt is a Veterinarian when he isn’t doing silly stunts with guns!

AWESOME! A Youtube video of a dude doing animal surgeries…which there are tons of, but now a dude doing surgery with a personality!

SUBSCRIBED!

Enjoy!

Be Safe Out There

From everything I am reading the Grand Jury Decision for Officer Wilson in Ferguson is going to be read soon. Also from all I’ve read there is a very good chance the Grand Jury may choose not to indict Officer Wilson.

Of course the old saying goes that a Grand Jury will indict a ham sandwich if asked, so this case may still go to trial, but that will essentially kick the can down the road just a bit further.

Cities are prepared for riots:

From Boston to Los Angeles, police departments are bracing for large demonstrations when a grand jury decides whether to indict a white police officer who killed an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri.

…Activists in Ferguson met Saturday to map out their protest plans. Meeting organizers encouraged group members to provide their names upon arrest as Darren Wilson or Michael Brown to make it more difficult for police to process them.

In a neighboring town, Berkeley, officials this week passed out fliers urging residents to be prepared for unrest just as they would a major storm – with plenty of food, water and medicine in case they’re unable to leave home for several days.

In Boston, a group called Black Lives Matter, which has chapters in other major cities, is organizing a rally in front of the police district office in the Roxbury neighborhood the day after an indictment decision.

The professional agitators are sewing the seeds of unrest wherever useful idiots can be found, and they aren’t just giving lessons on what to do when arrested, they’re talking about violent rioting that JUSTIFIES arrest.

Hopefully what little unrest will be short-lived and limited in scope, but if justice is served for Officer Wilson there will be blood. So be safe out there, and carry them if you got ‘em! You never know when you might get caught in the middle of such things.

**UPDATE**
there is also some talk that the agitators are encouraging potential rioters to take their activities to “White Areas”, so even if you don’t live in the areas where these “Community Organizers” are fanning the flames of racial hatred are encouraging the riots to go where the objects of their hatred live.

Images of the Antis: Poor Form

This one is just REALLY poor!

First up, while Aging Hippie Lebwoski probably leans left politically The Big Lebowski was an entirely apolitical movie, and using that image for political gains is just poor form.

Second the wording doesn’t even follow the anti-gun talking points.

The NRA line often lampooned by the antis is Wayne LaPierre’s “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun”. It’s lampooned, but it is also true. Every spree shooter stopped killing innocents the moment armed resistance presented itself, be that a lawful citizen with a gun, or a sworn police officer.

Still this image talks about “Stopping a Bad Guy”, if they are implying that only armed people are “Bad Guys” then they haven’t read the “Gun Death?” Files, nor are they giving credence to all the anti-gun states and cities that deny the rights of their citizens to keep and bear arms, yet are awash with crime and murder, both gun related and non-gun. Nor are they noting that there is NO NATION ON EARTH that has NO GUN CRIME, be it the UK, or China, or Russia, even when the citizens are disarmed wholesale by law, the Bad guys still get guns to use, and that’s not even the half of the people killed, raped, and assaulted with non-gun weapons.

It’s just Bullshit.

The law HELPS with crime, but it doesn’t STOP crime. What STOPS crime is people defending themselves from the violent element, and when people defend themselves the violent element takes note and chooses different ways to enrich themselves criminally that won’t get them shot.

“Gun Death” Traffic Accident

This is an interesting story:

A man who became known to the Kemah community as the “naked unicyclist” has died after an overnight traffic accident, police said.

Joseph Glynn Farley, 48, was riding his unicycle about 11 p.m. Tuesday in La Porte when he was struck and killed by a Jeep, Sgt. John Kreuger of the La Porte Police Department said.

The departed suffered from mental illness, and had been previously arrested for riding his unicycle nude. Of course the day he died he was clothed, so none of those issues seem to be a factor.

What do we ban, cars? Maybe evil “assault” Jeeps? Unicycles? Maybe more onerous laws that would keep people with mental issues locked up.

Of course none of that really would have mattered, and this is NOT a “Gun Death”.

Images of the Antis: Tasteless Quote

This is really just silly:

It’s just an oversimplified straw man attack on gun rights superimposed on Andy Rooney who’s been dead and in the ground for the last three years.

Reminds me of this:

Lincolin Quote

Of course the first image is posed as serious and the second one is a joke. Anti-Gunners are the REAL joke!

Quick Joan Fisk

So I’m planning a bigger fisk on one of Joan’s posts. Look forward to that in the near future. Still this most recent one is so insane I have to dive into it!

It is unimaginable that in a country that claims to care so much about health and safety, so many kids have access to guns. And when kids have access to guns, bad things often happen. Yes, parents take their teens and 11/12 year olds hunting. That is with supervision, hopefully, and a gun safety course or two. I live in Minnesota. It’s a hunting state. I grew up around hunting guns and in a hunting family. I get that. I was taught to shoot a hunting gun but didn’t particularly care for it. There were few handguns around in homes. Our gun culture has changed from guns being used mostly for shooting sports and hunting to now guns being stockpiled for protection against ? and to use against their own government in a supposed insurrection. Crazy right?

Ahh, anti’s still clinging to “Gun Culture 1.0″ Where revisionist history has George Washington crossing the Delaware River to get to his duck blind! Yep the only thing the founding fathers were concerned about was the right to shoot deer and ducks!

Also while keeping guns in the event that the Government (like King George’s Government) turns against the people is NOT crazy, and rather reasonable, especially given that said gun owners are staging peaceful protests, petitioning the government, fighting laws through legislative action and the courts, and simply teaching new shooters the joys and facts of firearms. They are NOT staging a full-on guerrilla war. As dysfunctional as you may think the current government is, it still works better than heading for the hills with your rifles and IEDs. Of course Joan speaks as if the civil war is already on, because that fiction is more useful than the truth.

Some parents actually give their very young children guns of their own, made by the clever gun manufacturers for children. The child-sized “assault” rifle for example. This video mocks the actual product. But it’s for real. You may remember when this little Kentucky boy got his very own assault rifle as a gift and shot his sister with it. She really is not in a better place no matter what her family says. Guns are not for kids.

Of course the killing in Kentucky is a sad story, it’s also a national story for how rare and bizarre it is. No matter what Joan says lots of young children get guns of their own with no negative effect, and LOTS of positive effects.

Also from the Kentucky story, what Joan calls an “Assault Rifle” is a Cricket rifle. Yes, now a single-shot, rimfire bolt action rifle with an automatic safety is an “Assault rifle”. Outside of MAYBE a muzzle loader this is literately the FURTHEST thing from the much maligned “Assault Weapons” in the 1994 Federal law, and it shows that the antis will call ANYTHING an assault weapon, and demand their confiscation!

Getting assault weapons and high-capacity magazines out of circulation.

Note that Joan’s group isn’t trying to restrict the sale, manufacture, or acquisition of so-called “Assault Weapons” but “Get them out of circulation” implying that they want to target getting them out of the hands of people entirely. Given that a cricket is now an “Assault Weapon” this means banning ALL GUNS.

In some undeveloped countries children are forced against their will to become citizen soldiers. Remember the movie Blood Diamond? Tragic to say the least. That is not America- is it?

No it’s not! Who’s forcing children into conscription? NOBODY! Still Joan WISHES this was true. How sick is that?

I could, of course, write volumes about kids and access to guns. I have written a lot of words on the topic as have the many others of us who are just asking for some common sense. For a while I contributed to the Kid Shootings blog but those of us writing couldn’t keep up with the volume of shooting incidents of and by kids.

From her own sidebar:
KidShooting Inaction

Yep there are just so many incidents where kids are getting shot that Joan and Jason’s little side blog has been ABANDONED! Yeah, BULLSHIT!

Still this quote really shows what Joan wants!

Notice that the recommendation doesn’t call for parents to simply lock up their guns. It stresses that the weapons need to be taken out of the house.

She also prattles about “Safe Storage Laws” (which BTW are illegal under federal law per the rulings in Heller and McDonald) which require EVERYBODY to lock up guns, even when no children are present.

So yeah, really she just wants total disarmament and confiscation of all guns.

This is “Common Sense”.

How the Antis View Carry

DC is being forced kicking and screaming into the 21st Century of gun rights.

Go read the whole thing, but the bottom line is to get a DC carry permit you need 16 hours of training. That training can ONLY BE DONE BY ONE MAN! You will need to part with $350! (Remember this is on top of all the crap they charge you to legally get a gun INTO DC!)

After all of this your permit can still be denied for any reason because it is “May Issue”.

Yeah, antis “Respect” the 2nd Amendment!

“Gun Death” The Price of Life

As the anti-gun people like to say, “Don’t use a gun, because nothing you have is worth killing for”. Of course I would argue that while some of my stuff is easily replaceable, there are many things in my life worth killing for if somebody attempts to take them by force. But what of the other side of that argument?

A man pleaded guilty on Tuesday to killing his mother- and father-in-law with a bomb disguised as a lamp to get out of repaying the couple a $40,000 debt.

Evidently 40 Grand was enough to kill TWO people however you want to divide up that dollar amount. There are people killed every day for even less. Still you won’t hear about this story from the antis, because this monster made a bomb to kill, and did not use a gun.

You see, only “Gun Death” counts because THOSE deaths are useful!

“Gun Death” Mop Bucket

They taught me this one in health class. Now that I’m a father, I’ve wondered if it’s an urban myth.

A Montana toddler drowned after tipping headfirst into a five-gallon mop bucket, police said today.

Even if it was a myth we keep all bathroom doors closed (which has resulted in a few amusing events between the wife and I) and all toilet lids down. We don’t mop our floors with buckets so that isn’t an issue, and any buckets we do have tend to be kept in the basement or garage where the baby has no access.

My heart goes out to this family, how horrible it must be.

Still their horror and sorrow is ignored by the anti-gun people because it isn’t a USEFUL death. Only “Gun Death” counts, you see!
