defense of self-defense tools

I do not like the word “meme”. Okay, I’m a crusty old man who does not rapidly adopt new words when there are so many great ones in our language that are falling into disuse. But there is no better word to describe the pictures, posters, images and messages I have assembled here. We are just a couple days from the Richmond, Virginia showdown. I am dreading this one. I think the OOOH-RAH patriots are walking into a trap. Any provocateur can dress as one of them and initiate insane violence that the puppet media would LOVE to blame on self-defense defenders. Here I share a collection of memes that you can copy and post wherever you find those who […]

modern gun fights – three examples

January 20, 2020 could turn out to be a modern gun battle. We would be wise to look at how they work. The first one I want discuss is the Aurora movie theater shootings. A kid stoned out on prescription psychotropics was manipulated into gearing up with a gun and a gas mask, opening the emergency exit to let in a “partner” who shot up the place, then out of his fog he got a sense that this was not right and shot the shooter. The shooter left his gas mask behind, left a trail of blood to his getaway car, then disappeared FOREVER. That man had his exit planned before his entrance. He had cover in high places. […]

Explaining LR-130, and why it’s important to Montana

Our state has a great champion of our gun rights in Gary Marbut. He continues to work harder and smarter to keep the pressure on Montana government to respect our natural rights to self-defense and all that means. In this e-mail he asks supporters to take note and take action. He also asks us to share the information. So here it is. – Ted –       Important update on pending November gun rights ballot issue from Gary Marbut of Montana Shooting Sports Assoc., LR-130, which will need the supporting votes of all who care about our 2nd Amendment rights in Montana.   From: Gary Marbut <[email protected]>   Subject: Explaining LR-130, and why it’s important to Montana   […]

Virginia – It’s A TRAP!

Those who see a multitude of downsides with almost no up-side chance are doing our best to warn off the patriots who are blinded by the HOO-RAH chanting that surrounds them. Virginians have the momentum. The county-by-county victories ARE GREAT. Do not walk into their Pig Trap, run off their Buffalo Jump or whatever other metaphor clues you in to what January 20th in Richmond is likely to be. I am sharing links, text, comments here from sharp people who helped me step back from the HOO-RAH din to see the looming disaster. Be the Indian not the Buffalo- Bracken RICHMOND: THE MOTHER OF ALL BUFFALO JUMPS   I share the complete text below, complete with test of your “Pig […]

Pushback on VA Governor’s Plan

to Hire 18-officer Team to Enforce Proposed Gun Ban What we want to see is this “tough guy” personally enforcing his forced disarmament plan. If not the very first door he came to, at least one of the first three would TERMINATE HIS PLAN face first. Sadly, the people will accept him sending unthinking, just-following-orders proxies to enforce his dictates. NOT FAIR to any of the participants. Today’s news says this psychopath-in-charge wants to spend $4.8 MILLION DOLLARS to hire 12 sacrificial targets in order for the Virginia elites to instigate war against the Virginians. That comes out to about ONE DOLLAR for each Virginian they want to kill in order to remain in charge of Virginia. The dozen desciples […]

.22 rifle practice

Far and away the most popular rifle caliber on Earth is the .22 Long Rifle (.22LR). Ammo.com has numerous listings for under 4-cents per round, and as they correctly describe, “Easily the most prolific and well known firearm cartridge in the world, the .22 Long Rifle (LR) is great for plinking and small-game hunting. The .22 LR is also considered the best choice for introducing new people to the sport of shooting, due to its lack of recoil and low noise.” I will add the intuitive: inexpensive, wonderful training tool from cost of gear through expense to operate. You can defend and take small game with these, but far more importantly, you can learn to shoot and practice your shooting […]

Virginia status report

Neither side shows signs of backing down. The bad guys are censoring lamestream media across their state, but The Internet is still The Real Free Press – a lesson we had better keep in mind for future reference. The Virginia map of self-defense respecting counties that have passed gun control sanctuary laws and in many cases formed official county militias. As you will read in the contributed article below, law enforcement and military past and present are joining their countrymen in standing fast against the fascists. An intelligent response would be to publish the names, addresses and other relevant contact information about those who want to murder the peace-loving people of Virginia. Is there something morally superior about waiting until […]

mass shooting today in Fort Worth church

Less graphic than your basic TV or movie fare, but real dang clear on what happened. A thug walked into a church, pulled out a shotgun and started killing Christians. The mass shooting part – well, that was the shooter’s intent, but a concealed carry church goer reacted quickly, accurately and effectively… perhaps with divine accuracy, eh? The second victim of this mass shooting was the mass shooter himself … a third is in critical condition as of the time this report came to me. Thanks to a man taking responsibility for his and his community’s safety, there was no fourth, fifth, sixth… etcetera victim. When seconds count, police are only minutes away. Watch the top of the screen […]

An Open Letter to Women Who Want Gun Control

By Daisy Luther Dear Women Who Are Fighting for Gun Control: Please give me just a few moments of your time so I can talk to you, one woman to another. We truly do want the same things. This is not an attack on you or the things you believe in, but rather, a discussion of empowerment. I am sure that your heart is in the right place when you tell us that guns should be banned for the good of humanity. You see the aftermath of horrific events like the Pulse nightclub shooting and the concert in Las Vegas and you are horrified. I am too. You are convinced that the world would be a better place with no […]

major gun fight in Virginia

The population centers elected Democratic majorities in both the state house and senate along with a Democrat governor. Immediately after the election results were in one of the losers winners announced their plan to implement confiscation of all AR-15 rifles in the state. He forgot that a whole lot of Virginians live there. Here is a map of the counties that have now passed 2nd Amendment Sanctuary bills making gun confiscation illegal. Then there is Culpepper County: Sheriff promises to ‘deputize thousands’ if his state passes gun control A Virginia sheriff has vowed to deputize thousands in his county should the state government pass stringent gun control measures. The Culpepper County Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed to proclaim the county […]

anti-gun juggernaut shot down in Virginia

Big money and political tricksters turned Virginia from conservative to fascist. They couldn’t help themselves from doing a happy dance on the vanquished freedom lovers. Not so fast, Bucko. Your political trick did not bury the human spirit that quite apparently remains alive and well in the seat of the American Revolution. The victorious Virginia Democrat majority eagerly announced their state-wide gun confiscation scheme before they even took office. The Virginians fought back before the bewildered political snakes could even blink. Lovely show. Way-to-go-Jeffersonians. With a bit of luck mixed with good karma and strong human spirit, there will be repeats of this across the USofA.   Excerpts below. Click the links for the full Monty. This is the […]

naval academy shooting

Slick Willy, that paragon of virtue, made it illegal for our military men and women to have firearms where they lived and worked. This was to … uh … I dunno what problem it was solving, but fershur: when guns are outlawed only outlaws have guns Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani And so it goes on military installation after military installation. Gun free zones are FREE FIRE zones for whacked-out haters of our military personel … much like our schools since the DC Swamp banned guns there in 1990. Again, NO problem was solved, but very clearly one was created. So the latest manifestation of those sins was at the Pensacola Naval Air Station by a man whose ethnic origins, and even […]

mathematical proof that you need a gun

The pro- anti- gun argument is almost always proffered on an emotional level. Logic is not applied nor are logical arguments welcome by the disarmament fans. A man earning his livelihood in a math-dependent line of work decided to apply science to the argument between owning and not owning firearms. The results are interesting. He does not appear to be a “gun guy” or in any way enamored of the tools. It seems to me that he was intrigued by the arguments for and against and decided to apply logical mathematical tools to the question. One of the best bits in the article is this regarding the most reasonable disaster to prepare for: “… the best one to prepare for, […]

Who has my back?

A friend who rarely goes out unarmed was relating the attitude expressed by some in a hiking group of hers. Me, carry a defensive weapon??? Why should I, Jane has my back? (not her name) The question then becomes who has Jane’s back? Many of us are defensively armed for more than personal preservation. It is a civic duty, and obligation we feel for our community – both large and small. Could I watch a handful of thugs beat somebody to death? … and live with myself??? I know the answer is a lifetime of nightmares and recriminations about what I should have done. Yet I have no hopes of ever becoming a martial arts master … other than […]
