Got a call today from Dan Roberts, father of very young competitive shooter, Shyanne Roberts. Maybe you saw her testimony against yet more gun grabbing laws in her home state of New Jersey.
She and her father were recently on Fox and Friends, talking about when it’s appropriate to teach firearms safety to children. Naturally, Dan and Shyanne felt that earlier was better than later. You know what they say, “If you don’t teach your kids about guns, who will?”
Dan makes the statement at about 3:15 that “Firearms safety, education, and familiarization was pretty much standard in elementary schools.” Naturally, the clowns at CSGV, in yet another bit to remain relevant in a world where Michael Bloomberg’s minions get TV interviews and Ladd Everett is in danger of having to sell a kidney to buy a Windows 7 compatible office computer, attacked Dan’s statement as “Revisionist History.”
So, the facts so far. Shooting happened INSIDE the home. Please note that the “Make My Day” pejorative is generally applied to “No Duty To Retreat” laws, which by definition do not occur inside homes. One is almost never obliged to retreat inside a home.
once the “victim” in this case entered the house with intent to harm someone inside, it’s a whole different game.
Here’s a basic rule to keep in mind. Even when you are drunk, don’t get into fights. Even if the guy is taunting you, don’t get into fights. And most especially, never pursue a person into their own house. Because when he shoots you to death, he’s right and your not only wrong, you’re dead.
So raise your hands if it surprised you when Michael Bloomberg announced the reconstitution of his anti-gun empire into “Everytown for Gun Safety” that Tom Ridge, former Governor of Pennsylvania and purple state RINO was on the “advisory board.” I was a bit surprised. Not that he was willing to play nice with gun grabbers, but that he was willing to be so open about it. Well it turns out that even Tom’s flexible principles don’t bend far enough to accommodate the pint sized former New York mayor.
He’s playing it off as a “I didn’t know what I was getting into,” sort of situation, but can anyone with half a brain pretend that he didn’t know Mikey is a gun grabber?
“I’m cool with the anti-gun efforts. I just object to how Mike is going to spend his billions to campaign against Republicans on the gun issue.”
Ridge is a RINO. He’s owned by the establishment Republican party, so he dares not cross them. Unless he pleases the power brokers in the establishment, he’ll never get another cool government bureaucratic job. But note how it’s not the anti-gun part that bothers him. That couldn’t have been a surprise to him. It’s the “expected electoral work” that he balked at.
So if you’re tempted to sing and dance at Mikey losing Tom Ridge on the first day of the NRA Convention, don’t. Ridge is not on our side. Quitting Bloomie’s anti-gun cabal doesn’t change that.
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.
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.
Well, let me be the first to wish for her eventual recovery. Many times people on the Left post ill-considered wishes for the deaths of their political enemies. Rest assured that Ms. McCarthy has my best wishes for a very long, long, long life. I want her to have to live through us demolishing the unconstitutional and wrongheaded gun control laws she worked so hard to prop up. When we are all free to open carry AR-15s in Central Park, NYC, I want her alive to see it.
I once got Representative McCarthy to send me a campaign sticker. Somehow both the bumper sticker and some 230gr. +P HydroShok bullets ended up at the range at the same time. This seems like a good time to re-post it.
The recent ruling repealing the ban on Federal Firearms Licensed gun dealers in Chicago is an obvious statement of the facts. If you can’t buy a gun, you can’t possibly exercise your right to keep and bear arms. Only a complete moron would argue otherwise. In fact, the reason that gun sellers are banned in Chicago is to prevent as many Chicago residents as possible from keeping and bearing arms.
Wow. They just put it out there, don’t they? They don’t try to hide their hatred of gun ownership at all. All the previous gun ban groups have tried to downplay their hope that purchasing a gun should be as near impossible as can be arranged, but Moms Demand Action, a wholly owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc. comes right out and says it.
Every single firearm transfer in a Federally licensed gun store in Chicago would occur only after the person buying received an Illinois Firearm Owner’s ID (FOID) card AND the federally required background check. This is exactly what Moms have been Demanding. Yet even this is too “liberal” for them. The thought that an ordinary Chicago resident could wander into a gun store, waive his State issued FOID at the guy behind the counter, and be sold a functional firearm just horrifies these women.
They think that at the very least, you should be required to get in your car and drive to the suburbs to buy your evil slaughter tool. Too poor to own a car? Don’t have public transportation that will take you to the evil slaughter tool pushing salesman? Too bad. Moms Demand Action, a wholly owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc. says no guns for you.
They don’t just hate your gun. They hate your freedom as well.
1. “Violent” misdemeanor? They plan on taking away a fundamental civil right based upon a misdemeanor? Of course they do. Never mind that the majority of murders are committed by people with FELONY criminal records. For them, gun ownership and self defense are privileges extended by the state. And since they are not natural civil rights, the State can take those privileges away. No. If it’s serious enough to lose your fundamental civil rights over, it’s serious enough to be a felony.
2. Your civil rights taken away based upon the unsupported word of a woman to a judge in a legal proceeding where you are not even invited to defend yourself sounds more like the workings of a Communist show trial than it sounds like the faithful following of the Constitution, doesn’t it? The problem is that this is already the law. If your wife wants to divorce you, she need only tell a judge that she’d like a restraining order and you’re banned from possessing a firearm in the State. You don’t even get to appear at the first hearing to defend yourself. It sounds like a nightmare to me, but it’s embraced wholeheartedly by the gun ban crowd.
3. Again with the misdemeanors taking away your civil rights. If it’s serious enough to warrant taking away civil rights, it’s serious enough to be a felony.
The best part of this is how they skip over the problem of enforcement. We see “felon in possession” charges punished with 9 months to 18 months in prison. We never see actual hard time. Do these people ask for the serious criminals to get serious jail time for their crimes? No. Whenever something bad happens they run to the nearest podium and demand more restrictions on the people who didn’t do it.
Go home, (Former) mayor Bloomberg, you’re drunk, on power.
It’s sad, but in my experience, journalists are generally not much better than transcribers for press releases. They just copy/paste whatever press release they get without bothering to exercise even a modicum of critical thinking.
Umm, guys? You’re already the same group. Moms Demand Action, a wholly owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc, can’t “join” Illegal Mayors Against Guns, another wholly owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc, any more than my big toe can “join” my foot.
I ended up visiting the anti-gun Moms Demand Action, a wholly owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc’s “Memorial Service” and fundraising event in Durham. I visited for about 30 seconds. Here’s how the News and Observer puts it.
I didn’t make any sort of a disturbance, nor would I have made one, especially inside of a house of worship. I think it’s projection. The Left enjoys disrupting events, so they probably can’t imagine that we wouldn’t return the favor.
I should point out that we were talking about violent crime in general, not Sandy Hook in particular when I pointed out the most violent crimes are committed by people with previous convictions.
Here’s the video.
Moms Demand Action, a wholly owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc, is calling their current fundraiser/blood dancing effort “No More Silence,” but they don’t want to hear from anyone with a differing opinion.
The ladies at Moms Demand Action, a wholly owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc. are spending this week whining that they aren’t getting enough attention. Saturday the 14th is their big event, where they will ring bells in churches and “demand” “action.” I guess they believe that because they are moms that we’ll sit back and let them take away our rights.
Ban on all private transfers. Given the previous attempts, that means they will criminalize me handing my rifle to my friend who will use it to teach my wife to shoot.
Since the leader of the Moms seems to think that anything that will allow you to shoot 10 rounds in a minute is an “Assault Weapon,” I would assume that they mean to ban everything, along with all of my pistol magazines.
Registration of all ammo sales so they can track them. If you don’t think that will include components for reloading, you’re a fool.
They will unilaterally require the redesign of all firearms to add “safety features” that no one who has a firearm actually wants. Like expensive and useless “smart” guns that will price poor people out of the self-defense market.
Ban guns in restaurants, stores, and basically any public place.
This one’s actually pretty funny. They don’t have the manpower (or Mompower) to match us out here in the state capitals.
I’ve got news for the Moms. I already have a mom. And she has a Glock 19.
