They will rage on against the rights of people like you and me to own firearms while ignoring the fact that the large majority of murders are done one at a time by criminals. They’ll love to have another statistic to add to the list of dead bodies they blame you and me for, but they will never admit that the real problem is criminals murdering people as part of their business plan.
As reported at Days of Our Trailers and others, Coloseum Software asked for a one day, “Don’t Sell Guns” day in January. They have since “recanted.” I sent them email and received this response, posted in full.
Backlash. That should tell you all you need to know about how the Newton School Shooting won’t change the essential calculus of the Gun Rights debate. The gun grabbers whine and cry on TV and on Twitter, but the real economic pain is brought by gun owners.
I just don’t get it. Every time something bad happens we have one more self-Zumboing. You’d think that they would learn. Our rights are not up for sale, for trade, or even discussion.
So we have a convicted felon retrieving “his” rifle and only stopped from using it by an elderly family member who is himself a convicted criminal, if only a misdemeanant. Another family member says he was mentally disturbed.
Why is everyone so offended? Look at what he’s been taught. Google NC Department of Corrections and look him up in their criminal database. He’s been convicted of illegally carrying a concealed weapon, possessing stolen goods, resisting an officer, marijuana possession, assault on a female, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, felony DUI “impaired instruction,” felony resisting an officer, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He’s committed all of these crimes yet he’s spent not one day in prison for them. He must understand that we just don’t care what he does. If we cared, if it bothered us, if we were outraged that he would act this way we would have thrown him in prison and left him there.
He is probably bewildered that anyone cares how badly he mistreated his dogs. No one gave a damn about how he mistreated all the people around him, so why would he imagine that we would care about the dogs?
So official NC GunBlog Girlfriend, screen siren Michelle Dockery, is now 31 years old. That’s old, but only by idiotic Hollywood standards. I turn 43 here in a few days so by my standards she’s just now growing up.
Your publicist is still failing in his or her duties. I’m not getting regular updates about you, and I’m especially not getting any photos of you. Your publicist could be assured of getting a once a week mention of you in a major (well, kinda minor actually) and well-respected (I hope) English language sports related (shooting is a sport!) blog. This is crossover appeal territory. Getting your photo in fashion and “socialite” magazines is easy work. Getting your photo and info about your life in front of the men who might otherwise avoid your film and TV work is a coup of the first order. My email is on the page “Blog Policies including Reciprocal Links and email address.” Please have the publicist email the photos with me along with a photo release. I won’t violate other people’s copyright.
Stop by here before Christmas. We can celebrate our birthdays together. If you’ll pardon my saying, you look like you could use a few slices of cake.

The reports out of Newton are starting to coalesce into a story instead of a pile of wild speculations. In all of these stories we eventually hear about the heroes. The people who ran towards danger instead of away. The people who shielded others at the risk of themselves. The ones who got their charges to safety when all around them was chaos. (From the National Post of Canada)
We have been systematically trained in society to be passive and let the “authorities” handle it. We have been asked to be victims who await rescue by the agents of a benevolent state. Yet we ignore the fact that the agents of the state were already there. I maintain that if you don’t trust the teachers and the principal with guns, you shouldn’t trust them with your children. This principal proved she could be trusted with the children. It’s sad that our society makes her prove it by getting murdered instead of allowing her the tools she needs to win.
