Darwin wins again! Teen shoots privates while “cleaning” gun…

So, you’re an 18-year-old stud with a BMW car, you like to smoke cancer sticks and you got yourself a new pistol at a party a month before… I mean, we always carry some extra greenbacks with us so when we find a great deal on a gat at a party, we can proceed with the purchase with great haste, right? (Wrong, for the sarcastically impaired.)

And you shoot your junk off putting your pistol in your pants “Mexican” style (that’s without a holster for non-gun aficionado readers).

So what do you do?

First you tell the cops someone else did that to you because no self-respecting white trash stud would be caught dead admitting he shot his penis off (along with one of his little jewels) with his gat...

 

In the aftermath of a shooting: What to do, what to say

(GunNews) - It’s Friday night and your legs are wobbly and you’re shaking like a leaf. You’re holding your handgun after opening fire on a violent predatory criminal you reasonably believed was about to inflict great bodily harm upon you.

The smell of cordite still hangs in the air from the two rounds you just fired, just like you were taught in your basic handgun protection class a few years earlier. You take a deep breath to calm yourself and look around for any other possible attackers. Seeing none, you call 9-1-1 and ask for the police, an ambulance and wait for the arrival of the first responders.

What do you do? What do you say?


 

IL: Fanny pack carry is legal. Period.

While some politicians posture in public to the contrary, “fanny pack carry” is legal in Illinois.

Here is Illinois law explained, directly from “Transport Your Firearm Legally”:

HOW CAN I LEGALLY TRANSPORT A FIREARM ON MY PERSON OR IN MY SPORTS UTILITY VEHICLE (SUV), PICKUP TRUCK, VAN, STATION WAGON, OR EVEN A MOTORCYCLE?

Three statutory codes regulate the possession, transfer, and transportation of firearms – the Criminal Code, the Wildlife Code, and the Firearm Owner’s Identification Act. In order to comply with those statutes when transporting a firearm, it must be:

Unloaded, and
Enclosed in a case, and
By persons who have a valid FOID card.

U.S. gun sales hotter than a pistol

The gun business is booming. The question is, why?

Speculation has focused on fears of a coming regulatory crackdown on gun ownership. Liberal administrations tend to be anti-gun and so, the thinking goes, an Obama re-election would set the stage for stricter gun purchasing requirements. Hence, people are buying now in anticipation of difficulty later.

“I should put Obama’s picture on the wall up there,” said one New Jersey gun salesman, asking not to be identified. “I’d name him salesman of the month!”

Sheriff Deputies were called to Elvis Cinemas Littleton theater Saturday night on a report of a man with a gun at the theater.

The unidentified man was legally carrying the weapon while wearing a jacket, but the handgun was visible. Whether the gun was reported by other customers or by theater employees wasn’t immediately disclosed.

The cinema manager, who was not identified, asked deputies to escort the customer from the theater. Deputies complied with the manager’s request.

The customer does not face charges and was not arrested since openly carrying firearms is legal in Jefferson County.

(GunNews) – Ceasefire Illinois got a million dollars from the City of Chicago earlier this summer to hire ex-convicts to “mediate” disputes between violent criminals and to “prevent” crime.

It’s true. This isn’t April Fool’s and sadly, it’s not a joke...

So, what has Chicago got so far this year besides further arrests (here and here) of street pharmacists claiming to be CeaseFire “Mediators”?

...Bumper stickers.

Yeah.

It’s better than that… Here’s what they are doing with them.
 

Hollywood’s evolving take on gun rights

In 1999, back when the Brady Campaign was upfront about their goals and called themselves Handgun Control, Inc., they ran a full page ad in USA Today entitled “Open Letter to the National Rifle Association.”

The letter called for a nationwide “one handgun a month” rule, waiting periods for handgun purchases, an end to private sales, and a complete and permanent ban on so-called “assault weapons” as well as normal capacity magazines.

Signing this “open letter” were dozens of Hollywood stars and media personalities.

But a new era appears to be dawning in Hollywood, with many stars voicing their support for gun rights.

Lott: Did Colorado killer single out Cinemark theater because it banned guns?

John Lott has done some investigating, something our mainstream media can’t be bothered with doing if a story deviates from their anti-gun template, and he found that the lunatic killer that killed those folks at the Batman movie premiere didn’t choose the closest theater complex to carry out his attack. He didn’t choose the second closest movie house.

In reality, it was the only movie complex within twenty minutes of his residence that banned lawfully carried firearms by private citizens. The “no guns” signs on the doors made right-to-carry license holders unwelcome. The murderer, however, didn’t care about a silly sign in the window, just as he wasn’t constrained by a civilized society’s proscription to murder and attempted murder

Pistols designed for concealed carry are usually exercises in compromise. Barrels and grips are shortened for concealability, but that results in a shorter sight radius, which makes it harder to aim. That approach also produces a lighter gun with less gripping surface, which results in increased recoil and reduced capacity.

Editor Jerry Tsai put a round in the chamber that, alone, was enough to blow up his magazine. But, when faced with the outcry about his perceived anti-Second Amendment statement, his response was to fire another round that blew up in a firestorm of social media protest.

The maelstrom revolves around the following passage that ran in the latest issue of Recoil magazine:

‎”…the MP71A is unavailable to civilians and for good measure. We all know that’s technology no civvies should ever get to lay their hands on. This is a purpose-built weapon with no sporting applications to speak of.”

Ed.: Has RECOIL editor Tsai never heard of Jim Zimbo?

In the past several years, we have achieved great victories. In two rulings, the Heller decision and the McDonald decision, the Supreme Court has ruled that all American citizens, in every state and municipality, have the right to legally possess a firearm. Those decisions were a tremendous accomplishment, and they finally ratified what our Founding Fathers envisioned when they drafted the Second Amendment.

One thing was made crystal clear at the Democratic National Convention, held this week in Charlotte, N.C. The 2012 National Democratic Platform is President Barack Obama’s platform. There is nothing in the document that doesn’t reflect the President’s position.

While the opening lines give lip service to supporting the Second Amendment, the rest of the plank calls for renewing the semi-auto ban and for regulating gun shows into oblivion.

A week from today marks the eight-year anniversary of the expiration of the federal “assault weapon” and “large” ammunition magazine ban of 1994-2004.

While gun owners have been preparing to celebrate by going to three-gun competitions, doing some recreational target practice, taking carbine classes, or zeroing their ARs to get ready for hunting season, their detractors have been busy too.

The NAACP and a number of civil rights groups are calling for the release of a Black man in Georgia who was convicted of killing a white man who had broken into his home and threatened his son.

At the center of the controversy is John McNeil, a successful African-American businessman who in 2006 returned to his home to protect his son from Brian Epp, an armed trespasser on his property.

Ed.: The article's lamentations notwithstanding, the GA Castle doctrine law didn't apply here because it was passed after this incident.

The American war on drugs and Mexico's problems with gun violence met up today in Washington. What's being called a caravan for peace has been traveling the country the past month or so, trying to draw attention to the violence in Mexico. The activists: many of them are family members of people who've been killed. They're asking Washington to change the way the U.S. goes after drug traffickers, in part by targeting the American gun industry.

Ed.: Having failed to secure their own borders, they now want to penalize Americans.

Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) vice chancellor of Legal Affairs Brooke Nielsen requested the Board of Regents approve an amendment to the board’s Handbook regarding possession of weapons on NSHE property during a meeting Friday, though some were reluctant to vote in favor of the revision.

Nevada law prohibits the possession of dangerous weapons on private and public campuses, but a statute gives university presidents the authority to provide written permission for individuals to carry or possess a weapon.

NC: Johnston County OKs new noise ordinance, nixes gunshot ban

The Johnston County Board of Commissioners approved a new noise ordinance Tuesday, but left out a provision that would ban loud gun discharges.

An ordinance banning loud gunshots, music, cars and ATVs in residential areas was proposed after neighbors voiced a number of complaints about a gun owner in the Oak Ridge subdivision near Willow Springs who uses his backyard as a shooting range.

But after about 300 people packed into the commissioners' meeting Tuesday evening – many up in arms about their right to bear arms – language banning gunshots was removed from the approved ordinance.

Instead, commissioners outlawed "excessive and unreasonable" use of a firearm in residential areas.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
By calling attention to a well-regulated militia for the security of the Nation, and the right of each citizen to keep and bear arms, our Founding Fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny, which gave rise to the second amendment, will ever be a major danger to our Nation, the amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic military-civilian relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of the country. For that reason I believe the second amendment will always be important. --JOHN F. KENNEDY
