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.
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.
why armed defense against college campus rape is a good thing,
new rules for carrying in Virginia state offices, and
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.
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.
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.
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.”
For 83 and a half years, my Dad has lived on this Earth. Nobody could tell him that he couldn’t exercise his rights as a man, even when they called him “nigger”. Even when they came at him with knives to kill him. There was no way that man was going to allow ANYBODY to treat him like he wasn’t a human being.
All that changed a short while ago. Four very evil people attacked my Dad. You know he’s a long-time gun owner, so you’d guess what would happen.
Unfortunately, at 83 1/2 years old and using a walker and a cane…he couldn’t get to his gun in time. Ten years ago, he would’ve gotten to it and stopped them. He has in the past, on several occasions. But this time….
This time…they got him. They broke his neck and left him for dead. Someone found him, and he’s quadriplegic, now on life support in the emergency ward’s ICU. He doesn’t have much longer on this earth.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE A GUN.
The antis want us all to be defenseless, like–unfortunately–my Dad was this last, final time. The antis want us to be helpless against evil people who might choose us as prey. Folks, when evil chooses you as prey, it is now up to you to defend yourself. The cops are minutes away. Your neck could be broken in seconds.
If we really have become such a degenerate society where this kind of evil can be visited on a senior citizen with a walker and a cane…DAMN RIGHT WE NEED GUNS!!
Dad, in your final moments of life, while you’re still here…this episode is dedicated to you. You taught me how to be a man. I love you and always will. And when your time does come, I will be at your side. I will be NOWHERE ELSE.
And those of you who would do such an evil thing…you’d better pray that I never, ever find you.
Now, why was I doing this? Notice the sign to my immediate right. It says NO WEAPONS permitted.
That’s right, our military recruiters are forced to work in a GUN FREE ZONE.
And we all learned how that worked out in Chattanooga, TN…when a terrorist decided to shoot and kill them.
Will our elected officials finally learn that our military members are…THE MILITARY?? And that they do in fact need guns for their defense?
Even the most virulent antis–Sarah Brady, Josh Sugarmann, Dianne Feinstein, etc.–say that the military and police need guns! Yet they disarm our troops when they’re the most exposed! They disarm them…even on their own military installations.
Not the best picture, but here you can see the problem.
Well, since they’re sitting ducks and thus cannot have armed guards…I decided to become one.
This was inspired by the fellow in Winchester, VA that started doing it. Thanks to him, who prefers that his name not be used, for the idea. And yes, as long as you don’t actually go inside armed, it is perfectly legal to do this. And the recruiters appreciate it.
We need to stop any copycat-wannabes, folks. If you have the time, and a gun, then I strongly encourage you to do likewise in your area. Don’t let another tragedy happen in your town.
Yes, it’s true, folks. We’re officially “wusses” for owning guns.
A Harvard professor said so. Therefore, it must be true! 😀
There’s some–oh, how did Senator John McCain put it?–ah yes…”wacko bird” of a professor out there. This so-called “researcher” seems to think those of us who’ve used a gun to defend ourselves from assault are–and I quote–“wimps” and “wusses”.
His name is David Hemenway, some guy who apparently “researches” at Harvard. And he’s engaging in preschool-type name calling. Wow.
Well, he was part of some “panel discussion” about how Gunz R EEEEEVIL and don’t really belong in the hands of Us, The People. After all, Granny Goodness knows better.
Why are we doing this now? We’re doing this because the not-so-good professor has surfaced again, recently, over at the LA Times, with his pseudo-science, on April 22, 2015. Yep, just under two weeks ago.
Looks like we’re taking on not just the Second Amendment, but also the First Amendment this time! We have two examples of violations of Liberalism, one by the Democrats, and one by the Republicans. Either way, we can’t allow stuff like this to stand, especially from our government officials.
We’re going to discuss why the BATFE’s proposed ban of M855/SS109 ammunition is just silly to do, even *if* they’re on decent legal footing to do so. And they just might be; we go into that.
We also take on some county officials in Idaho who wanted to officially proclaim the entire State of Idaho, a “Christian state”. Geez…have these folks never read the Bill of Rights? We’re going to discuss that, and given where this happened, I’m not too surprised, sadly.
Finally, let’s take a moment to reflect on a man who became iconic around the world. In both his TV/movie career and his real life, he advised us all to, “live long and prosper”. Leonard “Mr. Spock” Nimoy, may you rest in peace.
Politics and leverguns…kinda odd those two subjects would come together, huh? But we do it here.
The Virginia State Legislature is now in session. The antis, now funded by New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg and calling themselves, “Moms Demand Action”, are showing up now in force. They weren’t doing this before, and we’ll talk about that.
We’ll also talk a bit about what happened in a House Subcommittee hearing, which I attended. This is what you have to do to keep our Elected Officials in line, folks. In the process, I finally got to actually see Lori Haas, the self-styled “representative of Virginia Tech parents”, in person. I think you’ll enjoy this. 🙂
And there’s a new levergun in town, pardners! Seems I can’t keep my hands off of these things. We’ve discussed the Rossi 92 in .357 Magnum (also shoots .38 Special). Now I’m holding the .44 Magnum version (also shoots .44 Special). We’ll tell you how that went and how this .44 levergun compares to the Ruger 96/44 levergun.
In a future episode, we’ll talk about handloading for it as well.
Christmas has come and gone. The New Year, 2015, is upon us.
Last time, we began our case for Black Americans to arm themselves. This continuing notion that “guns are BAD!” among so many in the Black American community surprises me, because if history is any indication, Every Last Black Family could use a good .308 Winchester or .30-06 Springfield or something similar (8mm Mauser, 7.62x54R Russian, and so on).
This episode is Part 2 of my case for why this should be. And at one point in our history, it was. We’re going to talk about that, too.
All you good cops out there, who really do want to make a positive difference in the communities that you police, we need you to stand up and be counted. Recent events, and history, have shown that we need you now more than ever.
