"We've all seen it, dozens, perhaps even hundreds of times. A young man or woman, a young son or daughter, a young husband or wife, comes back from some unnecessary, idiotic war in 'Bumfuck, Egypt' -- in a box. Drums roll, bugles play, bagpipes flare. Maybe rifles in a row are fired. Meaningless platitudes are uttered. Attempting valiantly to hold back her tears, the widow in her Sunday church clothes, hardly more than a girl herself, accepts the flag from her husband's casket, now folded into a neat triangle. Beside her, a preschooler will grow up hardly remembering Daddy. The baby in her arms will never know its father." (06/22/14)

MS: Robbery suspect loses “bet” that victim doesn’t have a gun

MSN News Now    

"Jackson police say, shortly before that, a guest at a nearby Motel 6 had a run in with the man in the rear parking lot. They say the guest was approached by a man asking for cigarettes. The hotel guest said he didn't have any cigarettes. The man began to walk away, when, police say, he turned around and said 'I bet you don't have one of these,' pointing a gun in his direction. The guest did have 'one of these,' and began firing at the suspect. He reportedly hit the man at least once." (06/21/14)

Eek an armed citizen!

"The presence of a single, non-violent citizen openly carrying a firearm is sufficient to cause panic in people habituated to the evil idea that only state functionaries should be armed. So acutely alarmed do such people become that their first reaction is to call the police, thereby inviting the intervention of additional armed strangers who -- owing to the indoctrination they've received, and the 'qualified immunity' they enjoy -- are immeasurably more dangerous than the first."

"When you hear anti-gun propagandists say there is no self-defense use of guns, tell them this story. When they say people don't need guns, tell them about the young woman who nearly had her face removed and looks at her scares in the mirror every day. And when Michael Bloomberg says gun owners are dangerous, remind Michael that our ATV driver and 2,300,000 other Americans defended themselves with guns last year without shooting at anyone."

In search of a good war

by David Swanson  

"Polling is similar on U.S. desire for a war with Iran, or for U.S. military involvement in Syria. Many more Americans believe in ghosts and UFOs, according to the polls, than believe that these would be good wars.The U.S. public never got behind the war on Libya, and for years a majority has said that the wars on Iraq and Afghanistan never should have been launched.The search for a good war is beginning to look as futile as the search for the mythical city of El Dorado. And yet that search remains our top public project." (05/05/14)

Don Kates — Second Amendment centerpost

May 6, 2014
posted by

CalGunLaws
by CD Michel  

"In gun control’s golden era, Kates was a nearly lone voice in the constitutional law wilderness. At a time when an orchestrated attempt was in full drive to redefine the Second Amendment into uselessness and to abolish private gun ownership, Kates was writing and lecturing the next generations of scholars on exactly the opposite. Holding onto classic republicanism/liberalism, Kates spoke media heresy in proclaiming that the American constitution expressly secured an individual right to arms. But Kates illustrated his points to historical excess, noting that in antiquity the only disarmed people were slaves." (04/30/14)

The terminal vagueness of “Everytown”

National Review
by Charles CW Cooke  

"Well, well, well -- another one bites the dust. No sooner had Michael Bloomberg’s latest gun-control effort been launched upon an indifferent nation than the group’s head honcho had announced that he was stepping down. ... Michael Bloomberg may have rebranded his effort, but he has not yet managed to stop the truth getting out, nor to prevent his more moderate supporters from recognizing the ruse and bolting. And 'a hog in a silk waistcoat,' as Charles Spurgeon famously quipped, is ultimately 'still a hog.'" (05/02/14)

"A motorist repeatedly flashed his headlights at me as I was on the highway about to hit the town limits this afternoon. Sure enough, there was a cop lurking next to the first business around the curve.I realized it’s been years since another driver gave me that signal. Has that particular little courtesy gone out of fashion? Or have people been scared away from it by hostile traffic cops?" (05/03/14)

Click On Detroit    

"A homeowner on Detroit's west side is thankful that she got her concealed weapons permit last year. The 50-year-old woman used it to fend off an intruder early Tuesday morning at her home on Heyden Street. The homeowner's family told Local 4 that the woman heard someone trying to break in around 12:30 a.m. She immediately called 911 and grabbed her handgun. ... The woman repeatedly warned the suspect that she had a gun. Police say the 24-year-old man used a crowbar to break a rear window at the home. After he made his way into the home, she opened fire."

"Catastrophe in the shape of civil war, Russian invasion and partition are not yet inevitable, but they are just around the corner. The deal reached between Russia, US, the European Union and Ukraine on Thursday, whereby protesters in east Ukraine would vacate public buildings they had occupied and give up their arms in return for greater autonomy for pro-Russian districts, has only slowed the momentum towards civil strife. The demonstrators are insisting that they have as much legitimacy as what they call “the Kiev junta” since it came to power through street demonstrations overthrowing a corrupt, incompetent but elected government."

"Kahleefourneeyah is at it again. After a defeat four years ago of a bill to permit the open carry of unloaded firearms (Yeah, you read that right—UNLOADED firearms—less usefull that tits on a boar hog), Gun Owners of California (GOC) is once more pushing for open carry in California. Now, do not get me wrong—I happen to support ANY type of carry, anywhere (other than on private property where the property-owner prohibits weapons), anytime, without permission from ANY government official or bureaucrat. I just wonder why they think they have a chance on the left coast? " (04/20/14)
