The Google Street View team is at it once again, this time capturing a gun toting nutjob in Rapid City, South Dakota. And by gun toting nutjob I obviously mean freedom fighter.

All of the events that are featured in Karen’s post occurred in small towns, the very places where this sort of thing did not happen before. All of us who were brought up in small communities remember the time when everyone knew the police officers and they knew us, and the kind of police assaults and escalations simply did not happen.

I always assumed if someone tried to rob me, I could kick them in the nuts, then while they were down, I’d take their weapon, shoot them in the knees, maybe pistol whip them for good measure, quite possibly steal their wallet, and take off.

I had revised my strategy many times and devised multiple plans of action for a variety of situations.

For example, if they took my purse and started running, I envisioned myself taking off after them and managing a well-placed ninja assassin kick where my stiletto severed their spinal cord, then I and my slouchy Kenneth Cole leather tote could escape valiant and unscathed.

At the rally, aside from publicly condemning the Waxman-Markley bill, conservatives attending the event pressed on other issues. Musician Ted Nugent told the crowd that they didn’t need the Bill of Rights to tell them that “God gave” them the right to keep and bear arms.

“Keep means, it’s mine, you can’t have it. Bear means I got them right here,” said Nugent to the crowd waving American flags. Nugent also said that the country was being “dominated” by a president and an administration that “clearly hate America.”

Max Smith and his wife, Sharon, want politicians in Washington, D.C., to know they oppose health care legislation as written and want to protect the Constitution.

This weekend, the couple plan to make their feelings known in person.

The Smiths will leave Grand Junction on Thursday to spend four days in D.C. for the Sept. 12 March on Washington.

“We already got our caps and shirts” for the march, Max Smith said.

He said he plans to bring a Revolutionary flag with him as well that has the Roman numeral two in the center of 13 stars to represent support for the Second Amendment. He won’t be exercising his right to bear arms at the march, though.

“No, we’re not taking our guns to D.C.,” he joked.
 

UK: Scouts to no longer bring penknives on camping trips
Submitted by: Anonymous

Scouts have traditionally been taught how to use knives correctly, using them on camping trips to cut firewood or carve tools.

At one point Scouts were allowed to carry a sheath knife on their belt as part of their uniform although this is no longer the case.

"I think it is safest to assume that knives of any sort should not be carried by anybody to a Scout meeting or camp, unless there is likely to be a specific need for one. In that case, they should be kept by the Scout leaders and handed out as required."

Not gun news, of course, but definitely indicative of the lunacy in the UK today. What's next for the quintessential nanny state?

Virtually all libertarians, however, agree that otherwise peaceable people may administer their own ad hoc Termination With Extreme Prejudice in situations of imminent danger where self-defense is justified, such as a would-be victim pumping a plethora of revolver rounds into the torso of a knife-wielding rapist, homeowners gunning down midnight marauders in their master bedrooms, or a carjacking target jacking jacketed hollow points through the jacket of a jacked-up juicer.

A deadly showdown played out late Sunday in the front seat of a taxi.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said a would-be robber, identified as 17-year-old Renaldo Smith, was shot dead by his would-be victim - a cab driver who was called to an apartment complex near Carowinds.

Police said as the cab left the Colonial Village apartments off John Price Road in southwest Mecklenburg, Smith pulled a gun on the driver.

Within seconds, the driver drew his gun and shot Smith, who was dead by the time police arrived.

Connecticut residents are arming themselves at quite a clip, with women, in particular, packing heat in growing numbers.

The state issued 7,741 pistol permits from January through May, a 90 percent increase over the same time period in 2008. Nearly 12,000 new permits have been issued so far this year in a state that recently posted one of the lowest gun ownership rates in the country, according a study of 2006 data by the Violence Policy Center, a national gun control advocacy group based in Washington, D.C.

State gun retailers and educators who run the safety classes required for pistol permit applicants report a surge in first-time gun purchases, particularly by women, who account for up to half of the students taught in Torrington.

[Sam] Coleman supported the ban on guns in parks, but he plans on filing an amendment which would allow carry permit holders to carry a gun in certain parks.

"Particularly in our larger parks, our greenways, and our walking trail where they can be very isolated," said Coleman.

Coleman is asking park officials to identify secluded areas not frequently patrolled by police. Once a list is completed, Coleman will ask the Metro Council to once again look at the issue.

Many park visitors already have an opinion.

"American citizens are developing righteous wrath against Obama, politicians and spokespeople in the mainstream media," says John M. Snyder, named the senior rights activist in Washington by Shotgun News.

"Public opinion surveys and town hall meetings indicate people are incensed over issues of gun rights, health care, abortion and illegal immigration, as well as others," he continued.

He stated that, "data show people oppose politicians and mainstream media personalities who promote outrageous ideological positions on issues of basic concern to average people. They also are manifesting a veritable crescendo of anger developing into genuine wrath.
 

UK: Days when bank workers had guns

Robbers who raided Manchester's banks in the 19th century didn't have to worry about CCTV - but they had to keep an eye out for gun-toting cashiers.

Rarely-seen archives from the city's financial history show how bank staff were routinely issued with guns to protect their branches from thieves.

...

The archives show Union Bank of Manchester branches were issued with revolvers for protection.

These were maintained until 1925 when they were gathered in at head office, though one continued to be issued to the bank's chauffeur when he drove the cash van. The firearms were surrendered to the police early in the Second World War.
 

Survival Guns - I want to know what you think?

I want to know what you think. Choosing survival guns is a popular topic and we all have our preferences. Personally I don't think there is a “best” survival gun, only a number of choices suited for each individual task.

I gave up on the one gun concept long ago. There is no - one do everything weapon – the well rounded survivor needs a small battery of weapons to adequately perform the task at hand – and everyone has their own idea of what that group of weapons should consist of.

I want to hear about your choices – you don't even have to own all the firearms listed, I just want to know what you think the perfect, all around, do it all, survival battery would consist of.

"Pistol Packin' Morons"

I woke up to a story on politico.com this morning that proves a point I make in the e-mail below. . . Here is a snippet:

(Jones' departure) confirmed that the real opposition party to Obama right now is the conservative grassroots that draws its energy from Fox News, talk radio and the Drudge Report, and often leaves Republican elected officials scrambling to catch up.

Now the columnist below, one obscure fellow from Fallon, Nevada named Glen McAdoo, was "just thinkin'." We know this because his column is regularly entitled, "I was just thinkin'," thus it must be true. What Glen was "thinkin'" in his latest column is that folks who pack heat at town halls are "morons."

A report of a person with an assault weapon walking near Bungie Studios sent a team of police swarming to the Kirkland, Washington studio yesterday afternoon.

...

What the witness had seen however, was not a real gun but a prop Halo gun. It was a replica of the sniper rifle used in the series by the UNSC forces, built for the live-action video shorts directed by District 9 filmmaker Neill Blomkamp a couple of years ago. Someone from Bungie was transporting the replica gun back to the offices when they were mistaken for a neighborhood threat.

The manager is said to have followed the shoplifters to the parking lot to get their license plate, while yelling at them to stop and for someone to call the police. Police say that Carroll drove the vehicle into the manager, striking her in the legs and pinning her to the hood of the car. Fortunately for the manager, William Miller was nearby, and had a concealed carry permit. Miller used his truck to block the parking lot exit, drew his handgun, and repeatedly told Carroll to get out of the car, according to police. Fearing for his own life and the life of the manager who had been attacked with the car, Miller fired at Carroll, striking her in the shoulder, and putting an end to the violent attack, police say.
 

Supreme Court has shot at another gun rights’ case

Otis McDonald is a great American.

In the 1960s, he wore an Army uniform and served with distinction. He then moved home to Chicago were he began a family. Meanwhile, he busied himself during the days with work at his local union. Eventually, he led the effort to integrate his union and ended up as president of the union.

In recent years, McDonald looked around Chicago and decided that he could do something about the shadowy areas of the city outside the bright lights. He went into impoverished, crime-riddled neighborhoods as a community activist. Yet his work inevitably meant he crossed paths with shady characters — drug dealers and gang leaders. Justifiably, he feared for his safety. And he wanted a gun.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As an individual, I believe, very strongly, that handguns should be banned and that there should be stringent, effective control of other firearms. However, as a judge, I know full well that the question of whether handguns can be sold is a political one, not an issue of products liability law, and that this is a matter for the legislatures, not the courts. The unconventional theories advanced in this case (and others) are totally without merit, a misuse of products liability laws. — Judge Buchmeyer, Patterson v. Gesellschaft, 1206 F.Supp. 1206, 1216 (N.D. Tex. 1985)
