... "The antis know they can’t take our guns from us, so they’ve got to engage in deception to con people into believing momentum and political demand are on their side, and elite mother-fronters like Bloomberg have the wealth, the organization, the technical resources, the media reach and the political clout to produce powerful illusions to that effect. Once we realize that, we can see it’s all about masking the AstroTurf through a sophisticated technological and psychological exploitation of primal responses." ...
 

Vicious dogs and tyrannical governments: Guns are needed for both

... "It has occurred to me since last week's article that all my references to 'vicious pit bulls' might have given the impression that I share the all-too-common hysterical fear and loathing of the breed, which manifests itself in (successful, in some jurisdictions) calls for breed-specific bans, and even death penalties for dogs that have shown no inclination to viciousness. That attitude, come to think of it, has rather a lot in common with the equally hysterical fear and loathing of firearms." ...

"Pressing events in the country, namely, Barack Obama and Dianne Feinstein’s attempted gun confiscation proposals, made it necessary for me to devote my column to specifically addressing that issue. Accordingly, the anniversary of the fall of the Alamo passed without my annual tribute. I will rectify that with today’s column. Plus, the story of the Alamo only augments the need for strict adherence to the Second Amendment and the rejection of Obama and Feinstein’s Machiavellian gun-control measures." ...

"Are my hands bad? They can be. An inanimate object cannot be bad; only its use can. Yet most gun control measures are aimed at the object and not the use. Why is that? It is because we already have laws against the bad use of guns and they are failing to deter people. The anti-gun crowd seems to be taking the easy route. Rather than tackle the difficult social reasons why people are using guns in bad ways, they focus their fears on the object and not the person who uses the object. ..." ...

"However, this is what Maple Creek Gunsmithing received back,"
"'We’re sorry, but your small business entry into the Staples PUSH It Forward Contest has been rejected for the following reason(s): Entry contains content that promotes alcohol, illegal drugs, tobacco, firearms/weapons (or the use of any of the foregoing); ... or endorses any form of hate or hate group.'" ...

"With the great scare of 2013 and the resulting hoarding by gun owners and preppers of all stripes, that great American tradition — the gun show — has become a bit of a bore. The expo centers and halls that were once the place to find anything you could dream of, from a carry handle for a Pancor Jackhammer to any cartridge ever loaded, are now packed with sweaty, shuffling zombie hunters fighting over the latest fake Leupolds and ACOGs the Chinese are cranking out. And there’s nary a box of primers in sight. And if there were, they’d fetch a buck per cap. The gentlemen on the other side of those tables used to teach me a thing or two . . ." ...

"What does an outstanding, all-around, utility bolt action rifle look like? Have you ever found one? It seems like most all of the centerfire bolt guns I grew up around were niche based, singular focus type rifles. The exception was typically found with my great grandfather’s Remington Model 34 .22 rifle for squirrels and plinking and Dad’s Marlin model 25M .22 WMR rifle for close range coyotes, ground hogs and all around varmint shooting. Bolt guns were purposed for large game during a particular part of the year, and you had rimfires and shotguns to handle the rest. It wasn’t a prejudice, it was just our mentality." ...

"As discussed in previous articles on the subject, Soviet Spetsnaz troops played a key role in Soviet military doctrine, in both local operations (mostly in third world countries such as Afghanistan) and in possible global war in Europe. In either case, Spetsnaz required, among other things, weapons that could be used with at least some degree of stealth. The silenced 9×18 PB pistol, as well as 9×18 APB machine pistol, filled the bill for military-type silenced pistols, but only to the certain extent."

I mean, at the beginning of the year, because of a number of, you know, horrific incidents ... the president made a big push for new gun controls. But that seems to be stalled. It seems that African-Americans are disproportionately affected by gun violence, either as victims or as the people who are targeted in certain law enforcement strategies.
