I don’t think the White House understands the internet

Whether it’s actually Obama shooting skeet, or some reptilian doppelganger firing blanks on a sound stage, one thing is certain, they were just asking for this to be shopped.

The police are not here to protect you.

Self DefenseThis isn’t a to speak poorly about police, it’s just a fact. They aren’t here to help you or prevent crime. They are here to find the people that commit crimes after they happen. Now, if you have enough money, sure, you may be able to hire the police to act as security, or even have them assigned to you at tax payer expense, but otherwise, they are a cleanup crew.

It’s simple, we kill the Superman

Kryptonite Bullets1I don’t like Superman. He’s stupidly overpowered, but he has one major weakness. Kryptonite. A green crystal that came to Earth from light-years away when the planet Krypton exploded. Sure there are other varieties, but we’ll stick with the green for now, since it’s the one that most people are familiar with, and it’s probably the most abundant.

Nick Meli is a hero

Nick Meli, a firearm owner and concealed carry permit owner, decided to go to the Clackamas Town Center a few days ago. This same day, Jacob Tyler Roberts, also decided to go to the mall.

Guns are not the problem.

I would just like to take a moment to remind people of one thing. A few years ago, a group of people decided that it was time to kill as many civilians as they could. They managed to take over 3000 lives in one day. They did this, not with guns, but with box cutters. They didn’t even use switch blades or butterfly knives. Just regular old box cutters, the same kind of blade that you’ll find in the hardware section of Wal-Marts and Targets everywhere.

When the Timothy McVeigh decided that he didn’t like the government, he bought a truckload of fertilizer.

You yourself have the makings of several types of bombs and chemical weapons under your kitchen sink right now.

When someone wants to kill people, they will do so. They will use what ever tools are available, most of which are easier to obtain than a firearm. They will ignore any laws that are designed to protect those that they want to kill. All school shootings take place on “Gun Free Zones”, almost all mall shootings took place in a mall that has signs posted to disallow citizens from carrying their otherwise legal firearms. The Aurora shooter didn’t go to the closest, or largest theater in his area, he went to the only one within twenty miles that did not allow its patrons to carry their firearms on the premise.

When investigating these events however, we have found many red flags that were ignored. Coworkers, family, teachers, doctors, and friends that knew that the person was going to do something, but didn’t do anything to either warn people or get this person help.

Blaming the guns is just an easy way out. We don’t want to actually look at the real problem.

Yes, you can legally own a grenade launcher

You can own this gun legallyOne argument that seems to come up when talking about gun control and assault weapons bans, is that it’s a slippery slope. “What’s next?” they will ask, “Are we going to make buying rocket launchers and grenades legal?”

That argument doesn’t really work, since it’s already perfectly legal for a civilian to buy those items.

Self defense use of firearms should not be ignored

One asshole shoots a bunch of people, and it’s all over the news.  Thousands of people use firearms to defend themselves and nobody notices.

Take this story for instance:

An elderly Doyline couple fought off potential home invaders around 1:30 Sunday morning. Webster Sheriff’s Office says Brandon Hudson and Jecaras Taylor attempted to break into an elderly couple’s home, thinking they had evacuated. When the couple revealed themselves, police say the two men continued their attempt. Taylor was shot in the neck by one of the homeowners. He is in critical condition at LSU Medical Center. Hudson is in custody at the BDCC Correctional Facility.  ~ KTBS

How many times does this happen?  How many times does just having the gun stop a crime without even the need to fire it?  Nobody cares because guns are scary, and once in a blue moon, some whack job kills a bunch of people.  Then, instead of looking at the whack job and figuring out why he’s a whack job, whether or not there were signs that he was going to do this, and what we could have done to help him, we just blame the gun.

What we need is a massive self defense use of firearms.  Like, for an entire gang to decide that they want to rob a place, and the just happen to choose a house where the owner has an AK-47, and well, it is used without prejudice.  I imagine that 30 or so gang members strewn across the street would get some attention as to how firearms have defensive uses as well.

Mossberg 500

Just got my new pump and grip in the mail.  Debating no putting the folding stock back on it, but I think I like it better this way.  Now I’m just waiting on the mount for the flashlight.

I believe that this now means that my shotgun is classified as an assault weapon.

Why Assault Weapons Bans Are Pointless

We’ve had bans before, and our president has stated that he would like to see another ban put into place, and Diane Feinstein is ready to propose another one. But what do those bans actually do?  Take for instance, the two guns to the left.  The “legal” gun is a Mossberg 500, the same shotgun I own as well.  Now for the crazy part, the “illegal” shotgun, it’s the same gun.  What would make it illegal you ask?  Has it been modified to be full auto?  Is there a laser on it somewhere?  Maybe it has an ounce of cocaine hidden in the stock?  Nope, none of that.  The reason it would be considered illegal under the proposed assault weapons ban is because it’s got a pistol grip.
