Someone fixed the commercial. Gunsense saves lives

Update: Apparently MDA doesn’t like inconvenient truths so the abused DMCA to yank the video. Here’s another link.

Update #2 in case the second link gets taken down this video should survive.

Concealed Carry Permits Up, Violent Crime Down

We can debate correlation/causation till we’re blue in the face, that doesn’t change the fact that this is the exact opposite of what we were told would happen with the implementation of CCW.

Violent Anti-Gunners

As a violence prevention activist I frequently come across those who would seek to do harm to others for their personal beliefs among other things here are three recent examples.

From the site trayvonsamendment.com  a site purportedly upset about guns being used to kill children. You will find that if you wish to send them an e-mail their address is stabagunnut@ gmail. Yep, if you believe in the Constitution they advocate stabbing you. There are also some nice examples of Markley’s law on that site as well.

Our next contestant in how violent can anti-rights cultists be is realeyezlife who would love to see drones turned on law abiding citizens. You got it, they want to see high explosive missiles rain down on your heads. To hell with due process and anyone else who might be with you. They want you vaporized.

Finally we have a random citizen threatening those who are trying to recall Colorado anti-rights Senator Evie Hudak. Ironically he threatens to go home, get a gun and come back and kill civil rights activists. You can read more about the twit over at Guns Save Lives.

So there you have it. If you want to use the most effective means of preserving innocent life they want you shot, stabbed and blown up. Yet the people with training in conflict avoidance, resolution and de-escelation are the problem?

Starbucks

Let’s get the strong language out-of-the-way first.

I hope the jackasses who thought it was a good idea to start packing AR-15s and sundry other long arms into Starbucks and other places get an angry ferret dropped down their pants. You ruined it for everyone I hope you’re happy.

I personally have nothing against open carry, I just don’t like to unless I have no other choice. I also won’t carry a long gun unless I have a reason to. Out west where I grew up we had a long-standing tradition; you carried a handgun for those just in case moments. If you expected trouble, or had a need such as hunting then you brought out the rifle or shotgun. People got that and we rarely scared the sheep wussy folk, not that there were too many of those around anyway.

Now I don’t know if there is any way to get Starbucks back in our collective good graces. Some people are pissed at Starbucks, others get it, and some will continue to open carry (though hopefully just their handguns). I also see the anti-rights cultists crowing over this hollow victory and when they realize that all they have really done is driven the guns into hiding where they have no idea who is carrying they will resume their vitriolic attacks.

So here is my thought on how we can rehab our image with Starbucks. This applies to those who are choosing not to patronize Starbucks and those who will and even if you rarely do this may work as well. Any time you purchase coffee scan and e-mail a copy of the receipt (after removing sensitive information) to Starbucks Customer Service with a statement that you are a law-abiding gun owner/carry permit holder who will respect their request and this is what you spent on coffee this day. Starbucks will see what we spend on coffee and so long as we don’t have any of the aforementioned jackasses mucking things u we may at least see Starbucks lean back towards neutral territory.

Don’t know for sure if it will work but I think we should at least try.

Nanny McBloomberg I see your problem right there

Dumb crook taunts NYPD over the “stop and frisk” policy being ruled unconstitutional then trips and surprise a gun falls out of his jacket. While this part is hilarious look at this quote from the article:

Sidbury was arrested — his third weapons bust in three years.

Now what is NY law on this kind of weapon possession?

Possess loaded firearm without permit, outside of person’s home or place of business: class C felony, classified as violent felony offense, punishable by up to 15 years imprisonment, with a mandatory minimum of 3.5 years

N.Y. Penal Law §§ 265.01, 265.03, 265.20

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that this clown should be warming a prison cell instead of on the streets taunting Police Officers. But instead of hearing about how we need tougher enforcement of existing laws we get blasted about how background checks are the solution to a non-existent problem.

The Liberal’s War on Women Continues

Once again elected representatives in Colorado wage war on women who only seek the right to choose to not be defenseless victims in the face of violent crime. Notice in the video the violent criminal’s advocate uses almost 20 year old statistics from questionable sources that only refer to deaths and not successful incidents of self defense where there were few to no injuries. Even though the FBI released a study a few years later showing that choosing not to resist violent crime at all resulted in a chance of serious injury two and a half times greater  for women than using a firearm  (this can include merely brandishing it).

In the end Amanda Collins’ testimony went unheard as Colorado State Senator Evie Hudak, and her fellow violent criminal’s advocates on the Judiciary Committee voted in favor of banning responsible adults from carrying concealed weapons on college campuses.  No matter that there have been no major incidents of someone lawfully carrying a firearm on a Colorado campus behaving badly, victims must be disarmed so the people can cling to the Government’s skirts in fear.

 

“Rape doesn’t justify murder”

In yesterday’s post about the presumably fake Brady Campaign image titled “Better to be raped than to kill your attacker” I stated that I had actually met people who believe and advocate this mindset. Just in case there was any doubt this was left in the comments:
