Meanwhile in Sarah Brady Paradise: Shooting Sheep edition

There are lots of slurs upon people of Scottish heritage alleging abuse of sheep, but the Welsh usually only abuse Englishmen. Here’s a crime that would outrage the Scots to no end and cause them to do the unthinkable, ally with the English!
Don’t worry that you can’t pronounce the town names. I’m not sure that the Welsh can either.
The pistol pictured at the link is a silver revolver, with ivory colored grips and is claimed to be “similar” to the gun they are looking for. Not explained is how a “man” and a 12 year old boy would come into possession of a handgun on an island ruled by a government that bans all handguns.
Clearly the ban has some holes in it. If even two idiots out to shoot some sheep can get a banned weapon, I think we can say that gun control is a total failure.

More gun crime in Wilmington

It looks like Friday was a busy day for gun toting thugs.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty attached to my gun, and even if cops were going to arrest me I wouldn’t throw it into a bush.
Oh, so that’s why he chucked it. He wasn’t supposed to own it, much less carry it.
The Sportsman’s Club has a bar, obviously, and Thursday night (til 2 am Friday) is Karaoke Night. This means that it’s totally illegal to have a gun there. No guns in places that serve alcohol. The gun grabbers will hail this as yet one more reason that you and I can’t carry in Applebee’s.
Yeah, one more law will fix this problem. Sure.

Meanwhile in Michael Manley Paradise: Melt Them Down edition

I’ve pointed out the extreme nature of the Jamaican gun control regime before. So how exactly are they having so many problems?
One of the highest, but not in the “civilized” world according to the bigoted anti gunners who regularly tell us that the US has the highest in the “Western Industrialized” world. Racism?
There’s more
I’m guessing that it never occurred to the authorities to freely distribute the guns, including the old military and police weapons, to the honest citizens of Jamaica. We wouldn’t want the hoi polloi to be able to defend themselves.

Scrape some cash together for a guy who needs it

I posted about a guy in Des Moines who spent about 4 months in jail waiting for trial in a self defense shooting. They stuck him with such a huge bail amount that he couldn’t possibly pay it. He was evicted from his apartment and everything inside was put on the curb to be stolen. He got exactly the sort of treatment you’d expect in a state that doesn’t have a Castle Law.
Here’s your chance to give him a little something to get him back on his feet.
Sitting on my countertop, between both of the Netflix envelopes, is an envelope with a check for Mr Lewis. All three will go out in the mail Monday morning. Please consider doing the same.

Two school lockdown leads to arrest

The gun grabbers are always whining that we need to “think of the children.” So is this the sort of thing that is bothering them about gun owners?
So some gun owner was shooting up the place near a school?
Once again we see that when laws get broken, the person at the center of it all has a history of breaking the law.
So tell me, which is the rational response to criminals breaking all the laws we already have? Should we make another law for them to break? Or should we just throw them in jail and leave them there?

Meanwhile in Sarah Brady Paradise: Paralysed for Life edition

Since guns are extremely tightly regulated in (Formerly Great) Britain, how did this happen?
 So gang members, looking for other gang members, shoot innocent kids. How’s that different than what we have here? I mean aside from the fact it’s totally illegal for the honest shopkeepers to shoot back in (Formerly Great) Britain, I mean.
This is the world that the gun grabbers want you to live in. No less terror, just less ability for you to defend yourself. They call this “civilized.”

NCGV, Lies, Half-Truths, and the Anti-Gunner Way

You know, the gun grabbers are almost a bad parody of “The Chicago Way” in the Untouchables. We pull out facts, they lie harder. We point out problems with their argument; they change the subject and scream louder.

The latest hobby horse that North Carolinians against Gun Violence Ownership are trying to ride to relevance is the “Child Access Prevention” bandwagon. You see, it’s not that people do bad things, it’s that people don’t “properly secure” their firearms! Here’s their latest Tweet, the first in 8 days and only the 6th this month


NCGV breaks their radio silence to try to dance in the blood of a child shot in a school in Washington (AC*) when an 8 year old brought a gun from home and negligently discharged it from inside his book bag.


Wow, that puts a really different spin on things, doesn’t it? We have a drugged up convict mother in possession of what the child says is the father’s gun. The mother wasn’t “irresponsible,” she was a criminal! The father has what appear to be domestic violence protective orders against him. Are both of them prohibited persons? Are either of them legally allowed to own a gun?

Here’s the problem. If you have people who are barred by law from possession of a firearm, pissing and moaning that they didn’t “properly secure” that firearm is focusing on ants when elephants are stomping you to death. They also ignore that the child seems to be saying that it’s ok to bring a gun to school to solve a personal issue. Looking at his parent’s criminal records, I wonder where he learned that? They think that “One More Law™” will fix an already wildly dysfunctional family.

This goes to show you that the gun grabbers don’t care how they have to lie, cheat, and steal in order to violate your Second Amendment rights. They will do and say anything, and avoid, cover up, or just flat ignore reality to get what they want.

You start to wonder, though, if they even bother to read the whole story before they comment. They are always handing us the rope we use to hang them.

Sampson County shooter caught

I posted about the two Sampson County people who got shot, one fatally. Well the cops have caught their suspect.
Surprise, he’s NOT a felon.
But with all the other charges he’s been convicted of it looks like it’s only be accident that he’s never been convicted of a felony.
So let’s see, a criminal, shoots two other criminals, one of whom dies. And this is somehow the fault of the law abiding gun owners? Who wants to bet that the gun grabbers will tell us that this all can be fixed with yet more ineffective laws that only affect the law abiding?

Meanwhile in Dermot Ahern Paradise: BMW Machine Gunned edition

What kind of gun control misses the obvious law banning machine guns? I mean, if you’ve gone and made it near to impossible to buy regular weapons, you’d think that machine guns would be really tough to get a hold of, right?
Of course, if it’s already a crime to own a gun, you might as well have a machine gun. It’s not like it’s any MORE illegal.
It also seems that Ireland follows the same “if you’re a criminal, you’re more likely to get shot at” rule that we do.
Sounds like a pleasant fellow. Hard to imagine that anyone would want him dead.
