Are Mainstream Media Promoting Murder or Working to Stop It?

The media will show us anything that keeps us watching. That is bad news for all of us, because some people want to be the news rather than watch it. Some of us will go so far as to kill to be on the news.

We have data that mass murders have increased due to the news coverage given to the mass murderers. Is celebrity violence real, and how do we fix it?
 

Training as a team; Two Person Armed Defense

Have you ever considered combining your live fire training with another person that you may spend a great deal of time with in your daily life, perhaps a good friend, a coworker or your spouse? With today’s continued threat by an active shooter, training as a team is certainly a valid approach. Are you and your close friends or family armed on a daily basis? I certainly hope so. If so, the advantages of training as a team in the event of an active shooter event or armed attack should be obvious. As hard as police try, the reality is they will most likely not get to you in time. Bottom line, you and the person with you may be the only hope in the case of an immediate threat.

(3) the lawful carrying of firearms or other dangerous weapons in a Federal facility incident to hunting or other lawful purposes.

The new U.S. Attorney General can issue an opinion that self defense is a lawful purpose for the carry of firearms under (3). It is hardly a controversial opinion. All 50 states and the District of Columbia issue permits specifically for people to carry firearms for the purposes of self defense.

In spite of the obvious nature that carrying a firearm for self defense is a lawful purpose, expect much wailing in the media about such a move “making us less safe”.
 

BUG: Why two handguns are better than one

We’ve all heard the old adage that “two is one and one is none,” but does that apply to handguns? I mean, why would you seriously need a back-up gun? Do you think you’ll find yourself in a situation like Doc Holliday? Well, there are definitely some solid arguments for carrying a BUG.

Two is always better than one. Theoretically, carrying two guns would increase your odds in a self-defense situation because you’re providing yourself more options. You could do a New York reload, if need be, or you could hand one off to a partner who doesn’t have a gun (and make friends).

Discussions in several sessions focused on the myth of a sharp division between gun-owner and non-gun owner. Claire Boine of Boston University (session 3161) sought to identify different gun subcultures through a principal-component analysis of 10 variables related to gun culture, and then examined the association between the identified components and firearm homicide rates at the state level. This analysis identified 3 kinds of gun culture: “general” (collecting, hunting, target shooting), “self-defense”, and “guns as freedom”) and found these to vary among states and in their association with gun homicide rates.
 

WA: Washington police chief proposes ‘2nd Amendment Sanctuary City’ law

The NRA and Second Amendment Foundation have now sued to block I-1639, the sweeping gun control initiative just passed by voters that, among other things, raises the age to buy semi-automatic rifles to 21. But even before the legal challenge, a police chief in a small Eastern Washington town declared he would not enforce the new gun rules and has moved to establish a “2nd Amendment Sanctuary City.”

There have been any number of letters and op-eds about guns, their place in our society, who has the right to own them and if any of these firearms can or should be regulated.

This article is not so much about my opinion but perhaps an outline for the parameters on a discussion on understanding that the Second Amendment is not an absolute right without allowable limitations.

In other words, if you can imagine a new, draconian restriction on guns, gun owners, firearm parts and accessories, or ammunition, expect it to not only be introduced, but to be given a hearing. Also expect the anti-gun legacy media to openly fawn over these efforts. The same goes for any old proposals that have already been introduced and rejected, or even implemented and later repealed or abandoned after proving to be ineffective.
 

Yes, George Soros is a Gun Grabber

In 2015, billionaire gun control financier and potential 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg financed the creation of the anti-gun propaganda outlet The Trace. Ever grateful for their wealthy benefactor’s unfettered largesse, the Bloomberg advocacy group now views less-profligate anti-gun tycoons as irrelevant to gun control lobby’s efforts.

In a piece titled, “George Soros Is Not the Gun Grabber the NRA Says He Is,” The Trace sets out to rehabilitate the anti-gun image of the Hungarian-born billionaire and his political apparatus, Open Society Foundations.

Time for a show of hands!

Here’s the thing: If we’re really turning into a “police state,” an armed citizenry would be a pretty good way to reverse course.
 

WA: Eastern Wash. police chief proposes sanctuary city to protect 2nd Amendment

Republic Police Chief Loren Culp is proposing that his jurisdiction become a “2nd Amendment Sanctuary City” on the police department’s Facebook page.

Culp said the sanctuary city law would keep the department from enforcing legislation that violates the 2nd Amendment.

Washington recently passed gun-safety initiative I-1639, which raises the legal age to purchase some firearms and requires enhanced background checks.
 

CA: California Dem says US would win 'short war' against gun-rights advocates: 'The government has nukes'

U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell on Friday said the U.S. government would use its nuclear weapons in a hypothetical war against Second Amendment supporters refusing to give up their firearms.

The California Democrat, who is openly considering a run for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, made the outlandish remark on social media after a gun-rights advocate pointed out that the lawmaker once called for gun owners to surrender their assault weapons.

In what might legitimately be the greatest self-own in the history of gun control arguments, the dumbest tweet of the day was sent by Democratic presidential hopeful that no one actually knows, Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif.

After conservatives criticized Swalwell for calling for the forcible confiscation of assault weapons, Swalwell responded by upping the ante.

Conservative commentator Joe Biggs charged Swalwell with wanting a war. Swalwell enthusiastically agreed in the most insane way possible.

Travis Yust has lived in Batson all his life, but on November 8th he was forced to realize it's no longer the safe town where he grew up.

In a matter of minutes, Yust went from sleeping peacefully in his home, to protecting it. At around 3:30 in the morning, Yust was faced with a tough decision, to pull the trigger or let the men he believed to be responsible for breaking into his home get away.

"My wife woke me up and said the dogs are barking and our door beeped," explained Yust.

Yust said they have a home alarm, but it wasn't activated that night. The door, however, beeps every time it's opened. He said he assumed the wind blew open the door.
 

WA: Gun hatred: Owners now deemed criminals

It is illegal for a minor to be in possession of a firearm. It is illegal to use a firearm, or any other weapon to threaten or cause harm to another person for any reason other than self defense.

We could go on all day about the illegal acts that people do, with or without weapons. The point is that several laws are broken each time someone commits these despicable acts.

Another “Band-aid” gun control law makes no difference to the criminal.

The only thing that the passage of Initiative 1639 will do is create an illegal and unconstitutional law that will only affect law-abiding firearms owners and essentially criminalize owning a firearm and having it where you can access it.
