Crazed concealed carrier kills woman for telling him to stop shooting?

I’m sure that the usual suspects will be all up in arms about this incident of gun violence

So he’s out in the street, shooting his gun. A lady tells him to knock it off and he shoots and kills her. So is this proof that so-called “law abiding citizens” can’t be trusted with guns?
Oops. Maybe that’s why the gun grabbers aren’t raising a stink. Yet another felon demonstrating his total lack of care for the lives and safety of others.

Robbing with a dangerous weapon

Another robbery in Fayetteville,

I don’t know about you, but if I was out with my buddies and said, “Hey, let’s stick this dude up,” they’d haul me off to the cops themselves. So what kind of people do this sort of thing?
The second suspect doesn’t seem to have a criminal conviction record. In any case, he was hanging out with two felons, he probably knew what he was getting in to.

Meanwhile in Sarah Brady Paradise: Genuine Terrorism edition

I hate the IRA. I hate them the same way that I hate Al-Qaeda. If I had my way they would all be rounded up, gut shot, and allowed to bleed to death.
One gets the impression that this was the sort of thing that US gangs do, a sort of initiation. Go do something terrible to prove your commitment.
Left unexamined is how a country that bans all handguns and most rifles and shotguns still has an armed terror group running about. Isn’t gun control supposed to stop that? Or is it just designed to prevent the honest citizens from shooting back?

Why is far Leftist “Progress Ohio” running a fake Chardon school shooting memorial website?

Ladd Everitt and his band of far leftist anti-gunners have been spamming Twitter with exhortations to “leave a note of support” at what appears to be some sort of memorial website “RememberingChardon.com.” Prompted by a tweet from @spartywrx, I decided to Whois the website. Here’s what I found.
So the owner of Remembering Chardon is Progress Ohio. Like pretty much anything with the word “progress” in the name (except for Progress Energy) Progress Ohio is just another astroturfed far left organization. Read their website and see what amounts to a laundry list of Leftist causes.
So why is an extreme leftist (albeit one that tries to appear “responsible” rather than violent) website running a “Memorial” website for a school shooting? I think it’s just a way to collect emails to add to their mailing list. The Left as a group is anti-gun. The leader of CSGV, Josh Horwitz, wrote in his book that guns were a threat to Progressive politics.
While we try to believe that the various leftist groups out there are independent, the reality is that they are just one big group. A political hydra with many heads in many issues. The anti-gun lobby is just one face of a much larger group.
Feel free to use the number and the email address and ask Bret Thompson of Progress Ohio just what the heck he thinks he’s doing with his fake memorial website. If you want a real memorial, go here.

Murderer comes from criminal family?

If there is one article of faith around this blog it could be summed up in the following phrase,
Leopards don’t change their spots
This works both ways. Obviously I believe that those who have proven that they are on the wrong side of the law are extremely unlikely to suddenly decide to walk the straight and narrow. The other side is that those who are law abiding as a matter of habit will not suddenly turn into monsters. That was the whole point of my “felons behaving badly” category. The anti-gunners are always pretending that people like you and me are going to “snap” and murder people with our “loaded, hidden firearms.”
So what are we to make of the school shooter* in Chardon yesterday? A young man from a good family, with a bright future and all the prospects in the world? Umm, maybe not.
Even his mom got into the act
He even had a criminal past
And he wasn’t actually a student at the school he shot up.
According to the interviews being conducted, the people he shot up were students waiting to take the bus to that “alternative” school. We should be clear that “alternative” does not mean “magnet.” Alternative is the more PC way of saying “Reform School.”
The thing that’s pissing me off about all the chatter on Twitter (I’ll rant about Twitter later) is that people keep popping off about “bullying.” Let me go on record now with my armchair diagnosis. The shooter is a psychopath. Not a crazed axe murderer blibbering about voices in his head movie-type psychopath, but a real, walking, talking, DSM diagnosable psychopath. I think he’s no different than the other famous psychopath school shooter who everyone pretended was a bullying victim. There is some speculation that he shot one guy after his ex-girlfriend started dating the new guy. This is the sort of behavior a psychopath would think made sense. We’ll have to wait and see, but keep in mind. Sometimes people are outcasts and loners because they are so damaged that no one in their right minds wants to be friends with them. Remember who the above linked psychopath’s friend was, a depressive, revenge minded teen.
I think that in the end we will find that this murderer is another of those severely damaged people who grew up without a conscience. I think we’ll find that he sees others as objects to be used in any way he sees fit. I think that in his mind, killing people that refused to give him his way made sense. And worst of all, once everyone starts telling about him, the problem will look so obvious that we’ll all wonder why no one did anything before this point.
* I have a policy of not naming people like this. They generally want fame, and I plan on denying them their infamy. Let them die in obscurity.

Hitting and running

No matter how stupid the crime, when you get to the bottom you usually find that the perpetrator had a track record. Case in point.

He got hauled in for something like six different hit and run accidents one right after another. It seems that he mistook Fayetteville for one big bumper car arena. Not that this should surprise you, but alcohol was involved.
So is this a case of the bottle turning a normally good man bad?
Nope. He was a criminal already, from beating up women to selling drugs and running from the law. I suggest that his punishment be 10 minutes with each of the victims. Victims may elect to work together or separately, and may use any weapon up to and including axe handles. No sharp edges please. No sense letting him get off quickly.

You’d think that a country that basically bans civilian ownership of firearms would have less gun crime.
Hmm. Good thing that the husband isn’t allowed to own a pistol. He might have shot the attackers and saved everyone a lot of trouble. Even if he’d legally owned a shotgun, he’d have had to open the safe, get the shotgun, open the locked container with the ammo, load the shotgun, and go outside. Then he’d have been arrested. In most places in America, we are within our rights to roll out of the house with an AR-15 and shoot people assaulting our wives. As long as you don’t hose down the neighborhood, the cops would be much happier finding the perps dead on the street than having to search for them.
If the choice is Cowboy justice and total civilian disarmament, I’ll take the (fictional) Wild Wild West anytime.

That wild eyed radical Mike Vanderboegh is making sense again

I know, I know. He usually makes a great deal of sense, but the lefty whiners can’t acknowledge that. Here’s his latest.

Super-Secret sneak peek at the rifle barrel you all want

In addition to being your blog host, I moonlight as Deputy Assistant Shop Monkey at Templar Custom.

Here’s what I spent my Sunday working on.

This is the new prototype barrel from Templar. It’s an integrally suppressed AR barrel. The idea is that a barrel that is 16 inches overall, but has a suppressor built in would not require you to register your rifle as a Short Barreled Rifle.
The barrel will still be subject to a $200 tax stamp for the suppressor, but the rifle itself will be a normal AR-15. Couple this with Templar’s FastRail quick change barrel system and you can run a standard unsuppressed barrel normally, and in about 5-10 minutes, swap it out for this suppressed barrel.
The barrel will be 17” overall, including the outer tube. Overall length with the stock collapsed is 34”. This is about the shortest you’re going to get without springing for another $200 SBR tax stamp.
Bob is still assembling the gas block, but he hopes to test fire it soon. Video when we get it running.

Northlake Mall shooter captured

Back on 6 February, someone decided to shoot a guy at Charlotte’s Northlake Mall. CMPD have finally caught up with their suspect.
Unsurprisingly he is not what you would call a law abiding citizen.
He’s bad enough that even the newspapers outed him as a thug.
When you’re bad enough that the reporters got to the trouble to find your criminal record, you’ve really pissed them off.
My wife says that Northlake Mall is a ritzy sort of place. Maybe they are pissed that the violence marred a “nice” place. News flash: Criminals are not great respecters of boundaries, either moral, legal, or geographical.
