The NRA-worshiping "pragmatists" have been whistling past the graveyard, clutching the 1994 totem to their chests while repeating Dorothy-like for anyone who will listen, "There's no place like Fairfax. There's no place like Fairfax."

I've got news for them. Newt Gingrich is in private life, having failed to keep his dick in his pants and thus allowed the Clintons to blackmail him, marginalize him and finally to shunt him aside. He ain't there to save you no more. The political conditions that he exploited are no longer there. . . There will be no 1994. You want these zombies stopped? You'll have to do it yourselves.

"I have almost-limitless respect for what Mr. Rawles has done over the past fifteen years to awaken and prepare Americans for the very things we are living through today."

"But on this particular point, I'd suggest a bit more thinking."

"If the Obamanation foolishly chooses to enact manadatory Federal registration requirements, there are hundreds of thousands of Americans ... who will view that step as a 'weapons free' command."

"Many other Americans will reach the same conclusion once the first confiscation raids begin." ...

From a very serious, very experienced trainer up North we have these excellent points.

Some training notes that might help folks move beyond "rote memory" and "group lock step"....

Energize your FTX’s by Determining Skill Mastery and Adapting Your Style to the Men


If you’re using “Group Lock Step” methodology when you train your folks and you don’t see a high level of enthusiasm for training, you might be using the wrong method for the group you have under your ‘wing’.


Sometimes, believe it or not, trainers don’t take into account various levels of skill mastery or consciousness that their trainees have in various tasks.

Get this book.

"The Patrol Order is a companion book to the Ranger Handbook. The first 49 pages are a detailed first-person narrative of a ranger patrol order. This excellent, perfect bound work, with its distinctive desert camouflage cover, is written by an officer with over 20 years of Special Operations experience. Writing a patrol order is a critical task in Ranger School as it is in ROTC advanced summer camp and in the Officer Basic Course. This book is designed to give a potential Ranger student and other students a feel for the detail required to accomplish this task. . It reminds the junior NCO or officer of the many considerations that must be taken into account when planning and executing a combat or reconnaissance patrol."

... "In an extemporaneous speech, President Clinton offered the audience his analysis of the changes that have rocked America's cultural, economic and political landscape over recent years, and put them in the context of the last two generations. He argued that understanding these changes helps explain not only the rise of President Obama and his historic election to the White House, but also the new "political culture" of today and the generation to come.

Interestingly, President Clinton also discussed gun violence prevention policy in this context in a way that I thought was instructive. ..." ...

"'She's saying she realizes that she represents a statewide constituency,' said Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. 'One way she could prove she has evolved is to push this issue.'"

"An erstwhile federal ban on assault weapons made lots of sense. Allowing it to lapse, as Congress did in 2004, didn't."

"How much longer will it take to correct that mindless mistake?"

"There's no need for ordinary citizens to be armed with such lethal firepower. Hunters don't need them. Gun-toting urbanites don't need them, either."

"Those who say that outlawing these lethal rifles will only mean that criminals will have access to them are flat wrong. All that legalization does is make it easier for crooks to get them, and make it necessary for police to play catch-up in a costly city-street arms race." ...

"We saw similar legislation last year. If you recall, it appeared to be a clear response to the tragic Virginia Tech killings in 2007.

What makes the clip interesting is the clever bit of editing Henigan worked on the Second Amendment. In so doing, he made his explanation considerably more plausible.

Interviewed here by the notoriously anti-firearm rights Scott Vogel, Communications Director for the Freedom States Alliance, Lieberman gives us this:

This century there has been an increase in the number of non-white school shooters, such as Seung-Hui Cho, the Virginia Tech shooter. Before him there was Kimveer Gill, for example, in Montreal who was from Indian heritage. On 13 Sept 2006, he shot 20 students, killing one young woman at Montreal’s Dawson College, using a 9-mm semi-automatic rifle, a .45-caliber pistol and a 12-caliber gun that can pump four bullets with each squeeze of the trigger. (Gill) was obsessed about using firearms to make up for his shortcomings, writing, "I love guns. I really do. The great equalizer."

"There is merit in the arguments advanced by both sides in the current debate on relaxing the rules governing the ownership of licensed firearms."

"Those opposed make a strong case that ownership of a gun carries with it a great degree of responsibility and that licensed firearm holders are often the target of criminal gunmen eager to increase their armoury."

"One teacher ... made another significant point that there is already a heavy gun culture in the country that has had a negative effect on the minds of the young."

"'There are already too many guns in our society, and I think bringing more into the mainstream would only make matters worse,' the teacher said." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? [...] The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!" —Alexander Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago (Chapter 1 "Arrest")
