Let Joan’s crying begin

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.

I just made Joan Peterson cry

Long time readers of this blog will remember that I started blogging as a response to Joan Peterson at (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.

Someone made a video for me!

Watch the video.

Barron Barnett made this video based upon my comments when the kerfuffle started.

I just can’t help myself!

I try to ignore Joan Peterson. Too much crazy makes you crazy, but I followed a link on Sebastian’s Twitter feed and found the following

Some of these folks have no common sense. Take this Colorado man who thought it would be O.K. to show up at a showing of The Dark Knight with a loaded gun strapped to his waist for all to see. Yes it’s his right. But is it right? Why in God’s name would a gun permit holder want to display his gun in a movie theater showing that particular movie in that particular state? I’m sure the gun guys will say it’s because he has a right. Sometimes, dear readers, one must practice humility and restraint. People don’t like seeing openly carried guns in public places.

Let’s try that a slightly different way.

Some of these folks have no common sense. Take this Alabama woman who thought it would be O.K. to ride in the front of the bus for all to see. Yes it’s her right. But is it right? Why in God’s name would a black Alabama woman what to exercise her rights in that particular bus in that particular state? I’m sure the civil rights guys will say it’s because she has a right. Sometimes, dear readers, one must practice humility and restraint. People don’t like seeing openly defiant black people in public places.

Don’t try to read the rest of her post for facts, logic, or consistency. It will only make you stupid.  I do want to comment on this part here, though.

It’s time for a conversation, to say the least.

Joan, we’re having that conversation. You’re just not invited. We discussed your input and we decided that nothing was served by taking seriously the rantings of an obvious loony. We’re having a conversation and we’re collectively coming to the decision that most of the gun laws we have are completely stupid, so we’re getting rid of them.

UPDATE: MarkOfAFreeman proves once again that people aren’t much bothered by open carry. How dare he. He’s making Joan Peterson cry.

Chris proves that his cat is smarter than Joan Peterson

It seems that even Chris from Arma Borealis’s cat is smart enough to recognize that inanimate objects pose no threat.

One wonders how sad it must be to lose an intelligence contest with a housecat.

Why I call Dennis Hennigan “Denny Henny”

A funny tweet showed up when I was eating dinner tonight,

and I just had to respond.
You see, I don’t see her as “Pollyanna.” Pollyanna had an optimistic outlook. From Wikipedia
This clearly does not describe japete. A bowl cut statist moron, however…
I was trying to explain this to my wife, and figured out that most people don’t know who “Henny Penny” is. Henny Penny is the name of the chicken widely referred to as “Chicken Little.” You know, the one who’s always running about screaming “the sky is falling!”
This led to a discussion of Dennis Hennigan. He either is or is not the current Acting Director of the Brady Campaign. There is some question about this as Brady hired another gun hater to be their Director, but their press releases keep saying Dennis is their Acting Director.
I’ve been referring to Dennis Hennigan as “Denny Henny” for a while now. It’s not just an annoying diminutive of his name, but also a reference to the fact that he spends his adult life running around screaming “the bullets are falling, the bullets are falling.” You can all feel free to use my nickname for him.
I think he got hit on the head with an acorn one too many times.

Barron Barnett responds to Joan Peterson’s rant

After the gun grabber groups got PWND in their attempts to politicize the deaths of “gun violence” victims, they lashed out with all the fury you would expect from narcissists. Our old favorite gun grabber Joan Peterson accuses us of having “No Shame” because we polluted their mawkish ceremony by posting photos of our guns with candles in response to their candlelight vigils. The point being, candles don’t stop violence, being in a position to fight back does.
It’s too long to effectively summarize, so go read the whole thing.

Dear Joan Peterson, GFY. Signed Sarah.

The lady that everyone calls my blogmother, the gun control racket’s crazy aunt in the attic, Joan Peterson managed to get offended at the bunch of gun and candle photos posted by gun bloggers in response to the Brady Campaign’s insipid “Too Many Victims” whinge-a-thon.
The best response so far is from Sarah, at Cranky Chicks With Guns.
Read the whole thing.
Joan? You and your whole crew got Pwned. You got slapped silly in the blogosphere, on Twitter, and in real life.

Was the (reportedly now dead) Mt. Rainier National Park shooter a prohibited person?

The latest reports are that the jerk who murdered a Park Ranger has likely been found dead. If so, good riddance.

But was he a prohibited person?

Having a restraining order on you is a Federal bar to possessing firearms. Will we find out that he was a prohibited possessor for other reasons as well?

The media is playing up the “Iraq War Vet” angle. We all know that there are (pardon my French here) assholes from every walk of life. I don’t have any sympathy for people who murder others. I don’t care if you have PTSD or if you ate too many Twinkies. Your personal issues are of no consequence when you pull out a gun and kill an innocent person. Unless
he is responsible for what he did or failed to do.
I suspect that we will find, when it’s all said and done, that even if he was not formally a prohibited person, he will have done enough things that he should have been had anyone bothered to report his activities to the proper authorities. This is the exact same issue as we find in the murder of japete’s sister. Everyone knew that the killer was out of his gourd, but no one bothered to say anything. Now we listen to the narcissistic sister of the actual victim whine about how the law needs to be changed so that she can feel good about her lack of appropriate response at the time. We will likely find that had anyone bothered to do what was right, this jerk would have been either in jail or in a rubber room somewhere.

How stupid are anti-gun people?

Often we point out how little anti-gunners know about guns. We love to mock Carolyn McCarthy for her “shoulder thing that goes up” statement. The fact is, anti-gunners know little or nothing about guns. Would you let a person who knew nothing about medicine to regulate doctors? Or drugs?
Via Days of Our Trailers, we have this gem of an anti-gun comment on japete’s blog. You know, the blog that’s long on “woe is me” and short on any actual observable facts.
Bear in mind that this is her third comment on a very short comment thread, and the one immediately previous referred to gun owners as “gunloonz.” Apparently she is a follower of (or a sock puppet of) one of the most vile anti-gun trolls on the internet, JadeGold.
Let’s crunch the numbers.
Here’s her mythical “Cop Killer” gun
2800 Miles per hour is 4,107 feet per second
150 grams is 2,315 grains
The bullet from a Vulcan 20mm rotary cannon 1,030 meters per second and 102 grams, or
3,379 Feet Per Second and 1,574 grains
The bullet from my .243 Winchester rifle
3,000 feet per second and 105 grains
The bullet from my .45 ACP
850 feet per second and 230 grains
Perhaps this chart can put it into perspective for you.

The chart on the left shows the velocities and bullet weights of the different guns. The chart on the right is the muzzle energy of each gun in foot pounds.
I’ll make you a deal, honey. If I ever get a gun that shoots a 150 gram bullet at 2,800 Miles Per Hour and has nearly 87,000 Foot Pounds of muzzle energy, I’ll register it. Until then, leave the gun regulations to people who know what the hell they are talking about.
UPDATE: In comments, Joat suggests that we compare this mythical “cop killer” gun to an automobile. Let us imagine that japete drives a Prius. I am sure that the thought of her driving an eco-hairshirt doesn’t tax anyone’s imagination. Now let us imagine that she drives it down the road at 60 MPH.
No wonder we have to register cars. They are incredibly powerful machines. Far more powerful than my puny .45ACP!
