... "What gave the poster special credibility for this correspondent is because the level of ignorance it displays has been seen before over the years. Similar blunders had been pointed out in two related posts on The War on Guns blog. One demonstrated cluelessness by 'Authorized Journalists' who ran a photo of an Iraqi woman holding two rounds of unfired ammunition she claimed hit her house. The other, from budding college journalists, featured a handgun 'firing' complete cartridges as a front page headlined centerpiece." ...

"Billionaire former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s bizarre revelation that he thinks he already earned a spot in Heaven with his campaigns to destroy the Second Amendment proves just how arrogant and delusional he has become with his riches." ...

"Bloomberg, quoted ... discussing his latest gun control effort, dubbed 'Everytown for Gun Safety,' said, 'I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.'"

"The remark is outrageous and revealing."

"One does not earn his way into Heaven by trampling on the civil rights of his fellow citizens. Bloomberg can’t buy himself a spot inside the Pearly Gates ..." ...

Not until or unless some series of unfortunate events interrupts this endless marathon or, more likely, time takes its toll. In any event, when it’s all said and done, I probably won’t remember a word I’ve written. I will remember the friends I’ve made along the way and the precious moments I spent with my girls.

"Unfortunately, the people who are the easiest to disarm are the ones who are the most peaceful -- and disarming them makes them vulnerable ..." ...

"What is happening in Ukraine today is just a continuation of the old story about nations that disarm increasing the chances of being attacked by nations that do not disarm."

"Any number of empirical studies about domestic gun control laws tell much the same story. Gun control advocates seldom, if ever, present hard evidence that gun crimes in general, or murder rates in particular, go down after gun control laws are passed or tightened." ...

"I was inspired today. I watched this video in which left-leaning journalist Ezra Klein interviews Susan Crawford, the former Special Assistant to President Obama on Science and Innovation Policy, concerning a public option for the Internet and it got me thinking about universal gun ownership."

"To save you the trouble of watching the entire video, the heart of Crawford’s argument is that Internet connectivity in today’s day and age is too important to be left to the private market because like light, power and water, the Internet is an essential public utility."

"'We need a public option for Internet access because Internet access is just like electricity or a road grid,' Crawford explains." ...

"It all started with the Honey Badger, a strange yet awesome creation from the R&D department of Advanced Armament Corp. back in the day. The plan was to create a do-it-all weapon, one that’s shorter and quieter than an MP5, has the barrier penetration and “stopping power” of an AK-47, uses as many standard AR-15 parts as possible, and can swap from subsonic to supersonic ammunition without needing to adjust any settings on the gun. That’s how the 300 AAC Blackout cartridge came to be, and now SIG SAUER is in the process of perfecting the rifle even further. Enter their MCX . . ." ...

"I’m a somewhat recent convert to the world of appendix carry and while I agree that it isn’t the most comfortable method of carry, it does win out in the categories of concealability, retention, and speed on the draw. You may or may not agree, and that’s fine. But for me, AIWB is my preferred method of carry. Normally, I carry my piece in a CompTac 2 O’Clock AIWB holster. At $60, its a good buy, but money’s tight these days, so a less expensive option is always worth consideration. Enter NorCal Kydex’s Humboldt Hideaway AIWB holster . . ." ...

"We’ve been hearing a lot about SIG SAUER’s new pistol caliber personal defense weapon, the MPX, ever since it was unveiled at SHOT Show a few years back. At the time the plan was to release both a pistol version of the firearm (with short barrel and no stock) as well as one with a permanently attached muzzle brake that would bring the barrel length to an ATF-appeasing 16″ in length. While the fate of that brake-festooned version is still in legal limbo, SIG is planning on finally releasing the pistol version to the civilian markets soon. We had an opportunity to get our hands on the gun and get some trigger time before anyone else, and boy is this thing a blast . . ." ...

"Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America/Everytown for Gun Safety wants to ban civilian firearms ownership. Only they aren’t going to come out and say it. Americans would never support a gun ban for law-abiding citizens. So MDAGSA/EGS lobbies for 'common sense' gun laws and 'gun safety' and an end to 'gun violence.' They push laws that would ban 'assault weapons' and 'high capacity magazines.' They even talk about members who own guns, and claim that the majority of NRA members are behind 'universal background checks.' But it’s all BS, a relentless campaign to put Americans on the slippery slope to civilian disarmament. Here’s more proof, if proof be needed, via a petition/letter to Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchins . . ." ...

"While the NRA event will kick off Friday in the Indiana Convention Center, the Giffords gig will reportedly be held at the home of a New York real estate 'mogul.'

"Mr. Vince Picarello's letter of April 19, 'Punish gun lawbreakers, not all gun owners,' is a classic gun advocates’ smoke screen. The National Rifle Association has successfully defeated congressional efforts to develop the data needed to identify those Mr Picarello claims abuse the 'right' to own guns."

"Few words in the English language evoke a stronger reaction than the word 'militia.' In our day, it’s a word that conjures up images of antisocial radicals dressed in camouflage and running around in the woods."

"More often than not, these perceptions are based on social conditioning rather than actual instances of wrongdoing. For instance, when the Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City was blown up 19 years ago, blame for the bombing was placed at the feet of the entire political right — but especially the militia movement." ...

"The problem with this narrative is that the men who were eventually tried and convicted of the Oklahoma City bombing were not militia members, but former members of the United States Armed Forces. Oops." ...

Within hours after Bloomberg initially announced his 'Everytown for Gun Safety' project last Wednesday, the cybersquatters had created scores of pro-gun safety Facebook pages. The speed at which this was accomplished underscores the efficiency with which gun rights activists have learned to use the Internet." ...

What they really, really want: reign-in the auto-defensa or citizen militia groups that have taken over large swathes of Michoacan. The ADs (as they are now called) took-up arms, illegally, to stop the rape, torture and murder inflicted on the residents by the Templario drug cartel, under the watchful, well-paid eyes of the local police and Mexican military.

 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")
