On Self-Defense Rights, We're Winning & Should ACT LIKE IT

Kurt Schlichter has a great article at Townhall today, reminding us of the fact the gun control has failed in most of America.  I'll expand on some of Kurt's points.

At this point in the game, we can afford to wait out Obama and the Democrats on gun control.  We know that merely with a bit of lobbying and public outcry, we can delay or kill any federal gun control bill.  At the state level, armed citizens in Connecticut, New York, Washington, and Oregon are showing the way: DISOBEY.  With disobedience rates estimated to top 90%, any law is effectively nullified.

I'd like to see gun owners start dealing from a position of strength, and start pushing our way forward to more freedom.  When Progressives lose big in November 2016, we should get our list together.

The top of our list should be the repeal of ALL "sporting use" language from the US Code, particularly in Title 18 Section 922.  This Nazi language that Senator Dodd and his cronies put in there is completely at odds with the clear text of the 2nd Amendment, and it's certainly at odds with the Supreme Court's Heller and McDonald rulings, which clearly state, correctly, that the Constitution protects the right to own arms for self-defense.  As I've said before, the 2nd doesn't protect the right to sporting goods.

Secondly, with instant federal NICS background checks in place, the proscription against buying a handgun in another state and taking possession there is STUPID, and should be repealed.  If I'm shopping in Georgia, and I see a sweet Glock 34 with that MOS slide on it, why shouldn't I be able to buy it right then and there and take it home?  No, Mr. Backwoods, you can't, because you live across the river in Alabama.  What a crock.  Is this America, or the Soviet Union?  (Don't answer that, Progressives.)

Thirdly, the 1986 ban on registration of new machine guns for "civilian" use (which isn't even constitutional language, see definition of "militia") should die an ignominious death.  (And maybe that's already happening.)  The birthright of every American is to own the same small arms our military has.  The NFA collectors might not like that repeal, though; at the stroke of the pen (by Cruz?), the prices of machine guns on the open market will probably fall by a factor of ten.

And while we're at it, remove suppressors from the NFA list, and stop taxing their transfers.  Why should gun mufflers, which are nothing but hearing protection, be registered by the Feds?  I wonder how many billions have been spent on hearing aids because of this STUPID law.  Suppressors are one of the fastest-growing segment of the firearm industry, and certainly the fastest-growing of the Federally-taxed firearms and components known collectively as NFA items, after the unconstitutional and disastrous National Firearms Act of 1934.

Finally, in the states, we must push for repeal of all gun- and gun-owner registration laws (so-called "background check" laws), and all laws restricting the ownership of certain kinds of guns.

We're winning; we should act like it.

FORWARD to freedom!

"When You Chum For Monsters," You Get Monsters

Two weeks ago, Louis Farrakhan called for black men to rise up and murder whites.

Today, a black man answered the call, and he was 100% motivated by racial hatred:
A former TV news reporter fatally shot two ex-colleagues this morning during a live broadcast in Roanoke Virginia.  Then he posted his own recorded videos of the killings on social media.  It is reported he faxed a 23 page manifesto to ABC News, claiming his intent was racially motivated – inspired by Black Lives Matter propaganda.
This is a monster.  Only monsters murder innocent people in cold blood.   But as Michael Bane said today, "When we chum for monsters, why are we surprised when they rise to the bait?"  This monster-- I will not quote his name-- is exactly the kind of person who rises to the bait of the [Only] "Black Lives Matter" propaganda, to the bait of Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder and their open hatred of white people and white culture, to the bait of Louis Farrakhan and his previously-mentioned trolling for murderers.  These "Progressives", the Prozis as David Codrea calls them, have reaped exactly what they have sown: murder.

And of course, the media is cranking on this 24/7, which only encourages the monsters' desire for fame.  This particular monster compared himself to Klebold and Chu, two previous monsters, in his 23-page screed.   

Oh, and y'all better believe there's gonna be a big, Sandy-Hook level blood dance to gin up political support to take our guns away over this.  It's already starting-- straight outta the White House.    Note that they are not concerned in the least with the facts:  violent crime has been spiraling down for 40 years, even as the nation has armed itself, with millions of Americans getting their concealed carry licenses or voting for state legislatures that pass Constitutional carry laws.  More guns, less crime, indeed, John Lott.

But, they're cranking up the gun control already.  From the noble successor watchmen to the JPFO, the Zelman Partisans:
 Before the bodies of 24-year-old reporter Alison Parker and 27-year-old cameraman Adam Ward were even cold, Virginia’s opportunistic swine of a governor Fast Terry McAuliffe started immediately calling for more gun control. 
“There are too many guns in the hands of people that shouldn’t have guns,” McAuliffe said during an interview with WTOP. “There is too much gun violence in America,” he said, adding that he has long advocated for strengthening gun background checks and that it should be made a priority.
Come and try to take mine, Punk McAuliffe.  You want a war?  Try to take arms from decent people.  Instead, why don't you Prozis try prosecuting people like Farrakhan, who are inciting riots, theft, and murder?

And How Did that "Weapon-Free Zone" Work For Ya?

Another day, another attack in a "gun-free zone":
h/t: Breitbart News
Breitbart News previously reported the August 5 hatchet and firearm attack inside a movie theater in the Nashville [TN] suburb of Antioch
The Tennessean reports that the precise theater was Carmike Hickory 8 Cinema. 
We can now report that Carmike Cinemas has been boycotted over their gun free policies in the past. Moreover, those same policies were praised by Newtown Action Alliance; a gun control group which formed a week after the heinous December 2012 attack on Sandy Hook Elementary. 
According to Second Amendment Check, a Carmike representative responded to an email about the cinema chain’s gun policies by writing:
Thank you for your inquiry concerning Carmike’s policy on the possession of firearms within our theatres. The events in Aurora, Colorado have placed a renewed emphasis on safety and emergency protocols at all of our theatre locations. Like many movie exhibitors and other retail businesses, Carmike does not allow weapons of any kind, including firearms, into our theatres, except for weapons carried by law enforcement and other security personnel. This policy was in effect prior the recent events in Colorado and remains our policy going forward.
Note the prohibition against “firearms” and “weapons of any kind.” Yet according to The Tennessean, the Carmike Hickory 8 attacker had pepper spray, a hatchet, and a gun. On the other hand, law-abiding citizens who adhered to the corporate ban on guns were defenseless.
As we saw at the Grand Theatre in Lafayette, Louisiana, persons with ill intent are not hindered by gun and weapon-free zones. Instead, such zones make their attacks easier.
Sigh.

The last 9 mass shootings have been ALL ''GUN-FREE ZONES!''  At least 159 people killed and over 150 people injured.  And for what?  So the God-hating Progs can feel good about themselves, while they die waiting for the police?

Not me.  I either won't go, or I will ignore the sign.

This is stupid.
