news potpourri

I have an accumulation of interesting articles and links that just have not been given the time and attention to become complete posts here. It is time for some house-cleaning of those links before they get old. Here is the down payment on that project. More later. TTFN ———————————————————————————— FEINSTEIN ASSAULT WEAPON BAN OF 2019 [EXPLAINED] This horrible harpy is back with her favorite project: preventing honorable people from defending themselves from dishonorable, totalitarian governments. The Armalite Rifle platform (AR-15, AR-10) is now far and away the most popular design in the USofA with hundreds of producers offering every quality and option anyone could imagine. Interestingly, its use in crime is almost unheard of; statistically near zero. Protecting us is […]

left hook

The Sandy Hook school shooting hoax was, and still is used as a reason, an excuse to take firearms away from us. We need to solidly understand that the shooting story is and always was fiction, and such flimsy fiction as to be easily shot full of holes. A few things came my way recently that relate. I share this fresh-to-me information here. For one, the startling resemblance of the supposed shooter and the “kid” who became a national spokesman for gun control after the staged, fake school shooting in Broward County Florida … yeah, THAT Broward County. A few years older, but the same guy. Are there really so few sold-out actors they have to keep re-using them? Apparently […]

self defense stats

FBI Data Shows Armed Citizens Have 94% Success Rate Stopping Would-Be Mass Shooters Photo by Alien Gear Holsters. As the nation mourns the latest tragedy in “gun free zone” Chicago, a recent report compiled by Jacob Paulsen at ConcealedCarry.com shows that armed citizens facing possible mass shooters are able to stop the potential massacre 94% of the time. Paulsen’s study is inspired by John Lott’s consistent analysis of crime and gun laws.   While sourcing data from the FBI and giving a prefrace, Paulsen reports on ConcealedCarry.com: We thought it would be interesting to see if the overall percentage of events at which an armed citizen was present was increasing given the rise in concealed carry permit holders and gun owners nationwide. The data set is […]

smoking Feinstein

I am in one small way grateful to Dianne Feinstein. It was her election by the HUGE majority of people in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas that convinced me that I was okay; my state or residence was The Problem. Other than that one redeeming impact, she is a reprehensible person. The puddin-heads electing her term after term are one small step above. In the video clip below she brags about the horrid, worse-than-useless “assault weapons ban” that made ridiculous attachments to semi-auto rifles BAD while other attachments were okay. I turn you over to …

Good Guys With Guns

Progress Report 10 August 2018     Dear GOOD GUYS & GOOD GALS,   I am pleased to announce that STEPHEN WILLEFORD — one of the consummate “good guys with a gun” — gave us a great interview last week where he shared his story about the mass-shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on 05 November 2017.   If you watch the clip of Stephen’s story below, it should be clearer than ever why it is NECESSARY for individual Americans to “keep and bear arms” in places like churches, schools, concerts and other public spaces.  It should also be clear why citizens should be trained — as was Stephen Willeford, an NRA Member and former firearms […]

Good Guys With Guns

James Jaeger and Matrix Productions are well along production of an important, positive movie. I subscribe to his mailing list, receiving occasional updates and progress reports. The film crews have completed most of the interviews with The Big People who stand tall in defense of armed self-defense. There are a lot of work hours yet to go before we get to see this film. Meanwhile, he just sent this insightful explanation of how modern movie production functions, in particular how the financing and industry practices determine most of what the primary media outlets present… and how alternatives actually reach a significantly larger audience… and how that has already changed politics today. – Ted FINANCING CONSERVATIVE MOVIES Would the Founding Fathers […]

Good Guys With Guns

Progress Report 29 June 2018 Dear GOOD GUYS & GOOD GALS, I am happy to report that we have had four successful film shoots. One to Connecticut to interview WALTER REDDY, ROSIE HAAS and SHEILA MATTHEWS. Another to Massachusetts to interview SHERIFF MACK, LARRY PRATT, CLIVEN BUNDY, DAN McGONIGLE, DAN WOS, DAVID KOPACZ and KIRK WHATLEY and the last to Montana to interview STEWART RHODES and PASTOR CHUCK BALDWIN. In April we interviewed G. EDWARD GRIFFIN. You can see clips from all of the interviews below and at the GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS website. Stewart Rhodes and Pastor Baldwin’s interviews – which were done 28 June 2018 as scheduled – will be up at that URL in about 5 […]

guns, control, political climate

I assembled here several articles, excerpts and links on the topic of guns, shootings, disarmament and such. D.C. raises white flag in fight over 2nd Amendment While leftists all over the country, from Hollywood to Hillary Clinton, are hyping gun control in the aftermath of the horrific sniper attack on concert-goers in Las Vegas, the District of Columbia is raising the white flag in a court fight over that very issue, apparently hoping to limit what officials there would consider damage from an adverse ruling. It was a panel of the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia that rejected the district’s requirement that people prove to police they have a “good reason” to want to carry […]

rock vs nail gun

I have used a rock to pound a nail into place. Inconvenient and awkward to be sure, but out in the middle of a field with the nearest hammer half an hour away, rocks can pound nails. A carpenter could build an entire house using a rock instead of a nail gun, but it would be awkward, messy, dangerous and horrifically slow. Builders KNOW they are going to pound nails. Harvey Homeowner may someday want to pound one or more nails. For Harvey, a hammer might be nice to have around the house, a nice hammer even better, but it’s a rare amateur who has his own nail gun. THAT is exactly why gun control can only make the world […]

Good Guys With Guns

This is a crowd-funded movie exposing the ridiculousness of the elite-funded anti-gun message that has a near-monopoly on the airwaves. This movie will be an antidote to the ubiquitous “good guys are defenseless” sermons. MATRIX Entertainment has produced several excellent movies. I bought and watched several. That is entry-level support for a valuable production organization. Shop for and buy one or more yourself. Their current project is a very important answer to the assault on our access to self-defense tools. The false flags, hoaxes, real events and the political press to disarm us is relentless. A tool such as this movie promises to be will be perhaps CRUCIAL. Watch the trailer for the upcoming video. Then consider the appeal for […]

pay attention to the Potomac Swamp

It is easy to grow numb regarding antics of the numskulls in Washington DC. Not a day goes by where they don’t prove themselves to be stupid, evil or both. However, the good guys in GOA are paying attention and marshaling effective action to prevent raw evil from winning. The way the game is played Democrats sell their club memberships to people who want feely-huggy, peace-loving nanny government, but screw everyone from middle class on down to impoverished and bomb any they cannot directly steal from. The Republicans sell their memberships to those who want more retained earnings, less interference, but do the same as the Democrats. The only difference between Democratic and Republican control of the swamp is the […]

Good Guys With Guns

Matrix Productions is working on a film to answer the current assault on self defense tools. They have produced a number of great films covering various socio-political topics. Each and every one is worth owning. I do, and recommend you do too. Here is a status report they send to supporters, no matter how trivial our roles. Check the links. Check the progress. Consider helping, if by no other means than buying videos from them. Progress Report 28 April 2018     Dear GOOD GUY Associate,   This past week has been a rollercoaster ride with the script, the main title, the log line and the trailer script.   As some of you know we have re-written the script for […]

the hidden evil in bump stock bans

Trump’s Bump Stock Regulations Can Turn 500,000 Gun Owners into Felons   Please contact Pres. Donald Trump and tell him the implementation of his proposed bump stock regulations would turn 500,000 gun owners into immediate felons. You can email him, tweet at him or call him at (202)-456-1111 or (202)-456-1414.    Not a GOA member yet? We need you more than ever right now.   Illegal Bump Stock Regs to go beyond Johnson, Clinton, and Obama in Anti-Gun Reach! Dear TED, When campaigning, Donald Trump said he would respect and honor the Second Amendment.  Instead, he continues to push ahead on bump stock regulations which would turn 500,000 gun owners into felons.  And the regulations would arguably do the same […]

big thieves go for your guns

The usual suspects are at it again. We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office – Aesop The above quotation came to my mind as these jerks toss my life savings around like pocket change, yet would eliminate the basic human right of self-defense if they get their way. The ten thousand dollar suits do nothing to cover their ugliness. The excellent article below describes that those who would have us disarmed have come up with a new way to pull that dream off. As Mr. Greenfield points out, the current crop of disarmers happen to be the same folks who have stolen 98% of the dollar’s value over the last century. That’s the […]
