Gun Control


Do you object to this woman's use of a handgun?

How many hoops would you like her to jump through in order to carry that handgun?

Thanks for the shirts!

If that doesn't appear to get the message across, I just lower my head.


Is Someone Planning a Necktie Party?

I'm quite upset that I wasn't invited.

Via Gunner at No Quarters, we find that Justice Souter's house is currently being protected by police crusiers. (newslink)

With his recent Supreme Court rulings, they should probably call up the National Guard, "just being protective," of course.

Continually Losing Each And Every Battle

In the wake of our recent Supreme Court decisions on private property, Publicola was left looking for a movie. It sounds like a good one, but the ending is sadly predictable.

Don't Worry Its Only ONE Bad Cop

(Via Chicago Sun Times)
"Prosecutors say Larry Hargrove, 60, was part of a four-man crew that ordered dealers to turn over drugs and cash during raids on apartments, hotel rooms, homes and vehicles. In some instances, the crew drew up fake warrants, signing them with the names of fake judges. The incidents happened from 1993 to 1999, the year Hargrove retired as a cop."

Crap, I thought "The Shield" was just a television show. And sorry about that, but it appears to have been TWO bad cops, (don't worry, it was probably the only two):
Two members of the robbery crew were not cops -- although one was a civilian mechanic for the Chicago Police Department. They pleaded guilty and testified at Hargrove's trial. The fourth suspect, former Chicago Police Sgt. Eddie C. Hicks, 54, fled prosecution and has been a fugitive since 2003.

Only two armed thugs with badges, that's not that bad. (Oh, wait. All Chicago police enforce laws attempting to remove the right to bear arms. This makes them all a bunch of thugs that deserve nothing but removal for their attempts to take away a basic human right).

Need More Gun

Here is another case of armed self-defense, without which, Lamoyne Wahl, of Loomis, WA would probably be dead right now, (via NCBI):
"...the bear caught him and grabbed his leg, which knocked him to the ground splitting open his forehead. He said he had the gun reloaded by that time, but the bear had a hold of his leg and he couldn’t get it swung around. That is when he sicked the dog, Shaggy on the bear. He said the bear only let go for a split second, but it was long enough for him to get the barrel of the gun around and he shot it in the neck, killing it."

This happened about 20 miles from Iron Gate Trailhead, where I was hiking and camping last weekend with customers, (one of which is pictured in the this post atop Windy Peak). And yes, I was packing while we were out there, (but from the size of that bear, I'm not sure I brought enough gun).

This area is known for wild animals stalking or attacking humans. I have it on good authority that a cougar was killed last fall near Loomis as well.

This Might Make It Easier

I've found many interesting and insightful posts at Kim Du Toit's blog. I have wanted to recommended him to family/friends as a daily read for quite sometime, but I usually don't. Or I add a disclaimer when I do, warning that he can use some fairly foul language.

That said, his daily coveraged of wide ranging issues is very addicting. And his regular rantings on a citizen's right to bear arms can keep those who only watch the nightly news out of the liberal gun fearing wussy camp, (and do so in a very entertaining way).

So, it pleases me greatly to see that he has decided to tone things down. Seeing that, I now recommend stopping over at Kim's site to stay entertained, informed, and eventually a gun toting member of the Nation Of Rifleman.

Sentencing

Been out of town. Yeah, I had access to the internet, but just didn't feel like posting. In fact, I still don't.

I visited many great friends. Spent nights along the river. Created things. Destroyed things.

One of my best days in the past two weeks started at 5 am. I went for an hour jog, ending with a dead sprint around the local football field/track in 1 minute 13 seconds. At 6 am I sat on the back porch watching the river fly by. At 6:30 am I jumped in the hot tub and continued watching the river. At 7:30 am I climbed back in bed with my wife.

Ok, for those that care, I was sentenced June 2nd. It amounts to $500 fine, $250 deferred. 90 days in jail, 90 days suspended. Deferred jail time and money is on condition that for 12 months I have no future criminal offense. This entire sentence will not take effect unless I lose my appeal, (sentence stayed upon appeal).

Yup, I have filed my own appeal and "designation of record..." The SAF haven't stepped up to the plate, (in fact, they appear afraid to even return a phone call). Not at all a surprise, but still very childish.

I did have a letter from the SAF when I got home last night, of course, it was only for another fund raiser. Meanwhile, somewhere in America another unconstitutional "gun law" was applied to an otherwise law abiding gun owner. A gun owner who will bow his head, cry for America, and then take the plea deal. I am finished.
