Six days. That’s all it took for Utah to send me a renewed Utah Concealed Firearm Permit. I applied for a renewal on Sunday and I received the new CFP in the mail today. That’s service for you. And the best part is that they renewed it for 5 years from the date of the original CFP’s expiration date, so I’m good until 5-18-2019.
When I think of Rockingham, I prefer to think of it as the home of a racetrack, not of things like this.
Police say a man is behind bars after officers found two women suffering from multiple gunshot wounds at 1315 Cauthen Drive in Rockingham.
Who does something like this?
Not someone like you and me.
Long time readers of this blog will remember that I started blogging as a response to Joan Peterson at CommonGunsense.com (no link for her) censoring her comments. Mostly I’ve gotten away from reading or even thinking of her. It’s better for my sanity not to be exposed to her. But today I spent $15.75 just to make her cry.
I just renewed my Utah CFP
So how does renewing my Utah CFP make Joan Peterson cry?
This is my North Carolina CHP reciprocity map.
And here’s the same map with a Utah Non Resident CFP added.
Will you look at that! For the princely sum of $15.75, I will may carry a concealed handgun in the state of Minnesota at any time in the next 5 years! And I didn’t even have to get out of my desk chair to do it because Utah makes it an easy online process to renew!
And now you know how $15.75 well spent can make a gun grabber cry for five whole years. For those who want me to actually travel to Minnesota, hit up my PayPal with some travel money and I’ll be more than happy to visit.

In the last couple of days I’ve had blog posts scraped and posted on Zahal.com without my permission. My feed says
The post (X) appeared first on An NC Gun Blog. If you see this elsewhere, please contact me. © 2008-2013 by the authors of An NC Gun Blog. This feed is for personal, non-commercial use only. Using this feed on any other site is a copyright violation. Scraping isn’t kosher.
I think that’s pretty clear. The douchenozzles at Zahar.com don’t seem to care where they get their content, relying on the “what are you going to do about it?” defense.
Here’s your answer. I’m betting that this appears on their site immediately after I hit post.
UPDATE: Here’s a screen shot of my post on their page
I had much a quicker response than I expected. I left a comment on the last post of mine that they swiped and got an email response.
I received you message “STOP Stealing my blog posts.” for http://zahal.com/what-happens-when-both-sides-make-a-list.
I put it with RSS from http://www.ncgunblog.com/2014/02/28/happens-sides-make-list/, I am very sorry that this makes a problem, please tell me what you like me to do, I can delete this post or I can credit you in addition to credits it has now.
Sorry for this.
You can immediately stop using my RSS feed to put content on your page. You can also immediately stop using the RSS feeds of other bloggers. I’m now going through your site looking for other bloggers and telling them what you are doing.
I did stopped and deleted the posts I was sure that is why they have RSS to other people will post their articles and link to their sites with full credits.
The result? The entire category has disappeared.
Looks good to me. Other bloggers should keep an eye out to see if any of their stuff appears here.
I’ve sincerely wondered about this. We know that the gun grabbers (at least the government sponsored ones) are making a list. Should we make a list as well? What are the ramifications of making that sort of list? Who would go on it if that list was made?
The reality is that so long as we are left alone, we won’t start any trouble. To mangle a phrase, “We like our Constitution and so we’ll keep it.” But what happens if the war is brought to us? What happens if the unthinkable occurs and someone really starts trying to collect guns? I’m relatively safe here in NC. But the people in Connecticut are facing a State Police who have said they will conduct door to door confiscations. Should they stay in their homes and go down one by one? Or should they take the fight outdoors where they can choose the battlefield and the time and the targets? In any case, it might get a bit sporty in Connecticut soon. And by “sporty” I don’t mean fun.
One person has made a list. It’s the list of all Connecticut politicians who voted for the gun ban. They are mad at him, but all he’s done is tell them what is going to happen to them. If you’re late to work, you don’t get mad at the clock. If the bullets start flying, they will fly both ways. This isn’t a threat, it’s reality. No one wants this, but if it is forced upon us, we’re not just going to lie down and die.
I’ve said for years that the police and the government depend entirely on our willing cooperation. If they don’t get that cooperation, they will never be able to rule us. We’re too well armed to be bullied. We have to be convinced. It’s almost as if Marko was right.
I know that the anti-gunners will point to this and call me a terrorist. That’s what happens to people who are rude enough to point out that they are living in a fantasy world. They enjoy the fantasy that if everyone submits to government authority that everything will work out nicely. And I’m a big old meaniehead for pointing out that their fantasy is not even remotely possible. No one likes the guy who reminds them that their fantasy isn’t real. The reality is that attempting to enforce this law or any other law like it will cost blood. That blood will not be limited to the people in uniforms that the politicians send. Maybe the only winning move in this game is not to play.
Some of you may know that I have a brother who lives in Northern California. I visited him behind enemy lines in October of last year. While I don’t really like Santa Cruz, he’s just found out that the Sheriff has decided to abide by the Peruta ruling and start issuing Concealed Weapon Licenses.
Here’s a PDF of the letter the Sheriff is handing out. The PDF is hosted by a local training company, but my brother went down to the Sheriff’s office and got handed the same letter.
You’ve got to read the process to believe it.
Phase One (to be completed by all applicants)
- Complete and submit a Standard Application for License to Carry a Concealed Weapon (Cal DOJ form FD4012). Do not include separate attachments for information requested within the application. Initial every page of the document.
- Based on current law, and in the absence of any applicable exclusionary factors, self-defense or personal safety qualifies as sufficient “good cause” for the issuance of a license. However, if the law changes in any respect, we may require applicants to supplement the “good cause” statement in order to retain any CCW License that has been issued based on the law in place at the time the license was issued.
- Submit three signed letters of character reference from individuals other than relatives.
- Submit proof of ownership and registration of each weapon to license for concealment.
- Submit two recent passport size photos (2” x 2”) of the applicant.
- Complete Live Scan applicant fingerprinting for CCW application (DOJ fees paid by applicant): http://www.scsheriff.com/Home/LiveScanFingerprinting.aspx or 454-3007 for more information.
Once the application package has been reviewed, the application will either be advanced to phase two or will be denied. In the event the application is denied, the applicant will be notified in writing.
Phase Two (to be completed only by those applicants successfully competing phase one)
- Participate in personal history interview.
- If directed: provide written evidence from a licensed physician that the applicant is not currently suffering from any medical condition that would make the individual unsuitable for carrying a concealed weapon. All costs paid by applicant.
- If directed: complete psychological testing by an authorized psychologist used by the Sheriff’s Office. The cost to the applicant many not exceed $150.00.
- Complete a 4-hour (minimum) course of training approved by the Sheriff’s Office. The cost of training is paid by the applicant directly to the approved trainer.
And you just know that the Sheriff will certainly direct everyone to get a Doctor’s note as well as a $150 psych eval. All of this just to exercise a basic fundamental right to bear arms.
Here’s a copy of the standard California CWL application.
So, on the plus side, Shall Issue CWLs in Santa Cruz, California. (75%-20% Barack Obama in 2012)
On the minus side, Fees, Fees, Fees! Because we can’t allow the masses to Keep AND Bear arms. That would be unthinkable!
I’m glad I don’t live in California.
