Dissecting Hollywood’s latest plan for demonizing law-abiding gun owners, Part 2 of 2

No More Gun Bans!We continue our dissection of Hollyweird top bosses’ latest plans to try to paint lawful gun ownership as somehow a bad, socially unacceptable thing.

It further turns out that these new plans of theirs are incredibly ironic and even hypocritical.  We’ll go into that, too.

This is Part 2 of the 2-part series.

True Liberalism demands that we honor and fully support the entire Bill of Rights, folks.  All of it.

Dissecting Hollywood’s latest plan for demonizing law-abiding gun owners, Part 1 of 2

No_guns.svgThey never seem to stop, do they?

I just found out, thanks to the good folks at CalGuns, about Hollyweird’s latest plan to demonize us, meaning law-abiding gun owners.  They see that the courts aren’t going their way.  So, they’ve now turned to using their control of media to portray us as socially unacceptable.

Sad, but true.  They’ve even got a list of “suggestions” of how to portray us.  Here it is.

Constitutional Carry = Safest State in USA

Constitutional Carry =
Safest State in USA

You should read these “suggestions”…because I’m going to dissect them and explain to you where and why they’re wrong.  This needs to be done, just like with David Hemenway and his distortions earlier.

Folks, there is absolutely nothing “Liberal” about disarming the law-abiding public.  There just isn’t.

As if on cue, West Virginia overrode a gubernatorial veto and now has Constitutional Carry!  That makes them the seventh state to follow in Vermont’s lead, for a total of 8 states.  Perhaps Virginia will also return to Constitutional Carry soon.

This is Part 1 of a 2-part series.

Defense against campus rape, carry in Virginia state offices, and why Black lives do matter

Legalize carry for all of us!

Indeed…legalize self-defense carry nationwide!

We’ve got three things to talk about here:

  1. why armed defense against college campus rape is a good thing,
  2. new rules for carrying in Virginia state offices, and
  3. what’s going on with this “war on cops” narrative I keep hearing.

A listener sent me his account of when he was attacked in Texas.  He wasn’t sure if he was going to live or die, as he was unarmed and essentially helpless.  He’s lucky to be alive.  You will hear his account of how he felt.  I’m pretty sure this applies to rape survivors as well.

There are new rules for carrying in offices owned or operated by VA State executive branch agencies.  Basically, you can’t anymore.  This is Executive Order #50, put out by current Gov. Terry McAuliffe (“McAwful?”).  No matter how he tries to frame his action, it doesn’t even qualify as a solution looking for a problem, and I will explain to you why.

Finally, we had yet another incident of racism from a White police officer toward a Black man, a part of the Black Lives matter movement.  The now-former officer was subsequently fired from the force.  This incident inspired a discussion of what’s going on and what police officers generally can do to help the issue.  Yes, all lives do matter…INCLUDING the Black ones.  Let’s not forget that.

When the Black lives matter as much as the White lives, then ALL lives will matter.

When the Black lives matter as much as the other lives (especially including White or “Blue” lives), then “All Lives Matter” will finally be true.  May that day come soon.

Here’s an example that illustrates the problem, from my own hometown of San Francisco, California.  WARNING:  some of the language you will read in the below link is rather offensively racist and bigoted.  But we can’t shy away from it, either.  We’ve got to confront it head-on.

We can’t give up, folks.  When the Black lives matter as much as other lives do–especially including White and “Blue” lives, then “All Lives Matter” will finally be true.  May that day come soon!

 

Episode 45: The “Deal” on Virginia Reciprocity…and Building a CMP M1 Garand!

It’s been a little while.  Given what happened in October (see the previous episode), I hope you all can understand why.  If anyone could possibly be the “poster child” for the need to carry, my Dad–the now late C. Terrell Prude’, Sr.–would be it.

But he wasn’t alone.  You’ll also hear the story of a young lady who really needed a gun recently.  Fortunately, there was a Good Guy With A Gun (me) to help her out of a very bad situation.

Speaking of carry…let’s talk about “The Deal” that was hammered out and signed into law recently, regarding carry permits and reciprocity here in the Old Dominion (that’d be Virginia, folks).  It seems that Atty. General Herring’s action caused enough of a firestorm that the McAuliffe Administration had to back off, and quickly.  Not only are we getting reciprocity back…it’s coming back in a new and improved form!  Liberty won this time, folks, because We, The People did our jobs.

And now…let’s talk about a symbol of that very liberty.

Just last week, I attended the CMP’s Advanced Maintenance Class for the M1 Garand rifle.  In three days, I learned how to build a complete, fully functional

This is my rifle! There are many like it, and THIS ONE IS MINE!

This is my rifle! There are many like it, and THIS ONE IS MINE!

M1 Garand.  I know it’s functional because I tested it out on the CMP’s extensive rifle range afterwards!  🙂  This class is a wealth of information, and when it’s all done, that rifle is yours to keep and take home with you.

That’s right, I build my own M1 Garand!  There are many like it, and this one is truly MINE!

Liberty is our best friend.  It is this nation’s life, and there can be no more potent American symbol of the defense of that freedom than this rifle.  It is indeed, “the greatest battle implement ever devised.”
