A very good idea brought to you by David Codrea of the Gun Rights Examiner. My congressman just got sent a request for an investigation. The link above not only tells you what to say but how to get the info on your Representative or Senator. Leave the Twitter alone for 10 minutes and rise hell in your district.
My DSL internet connection went Tango Uniform about a week ago. The folks at AT&T determined (after asking for the 1000th to reset the modem and for the same amount m telling them I do not have a modem but fiber optic) that the wire from my house to the distribution box/thinghie is damaged and has to be replaced. As usual, I got told different time-lines and the best repair scenario as supposed to be yesterday, but reality and the Union reared their ugly heads and I was given the firm date of sometime after the passage of the Health Care Bill or 10 business days, whichever they feel more like it. So, I might be reconnected back by the 7th of January or when my doctor gets permission from an ACORN-Health Care specialist to use gloves during my examination.
In the meantime I am forced to fish for free wireless connections or spend time in my local McDonald’s and being asked to leave for spending six hours with just an order of fries and a small Coke plus telling the little kids to stop making so much noise in the jungle jim.
The following is extracted from the article “A Patron for Shooters” by Carlo Stagnaro, ARMI Magazine, Milan, Italy, June 2003. For the whole article please visit the St. Gabriel Possenti Society.
After a battle that year in Pesaro, Italy, in which Giuseppe Garibaldi’s Piedmontese army defeated Blessed Pope Pius IX’s army, several contingents of the former left the main body of the troops, and proceeded to terrorize the countryside. About 20 of them entered Isola del Gran Sasso, where Gabriel Possenti served as a seminarian. When the noise from the ruckus caused by the gang reached the monastery, Possenti asked the monastery rector if he could go into the town to see if he could help the people. The rector said yes.
Possenti found the gang about to rape a young woman, and ordered them to set her free. When they refused to obey, Possenti yanked two pistols out of the soldiers’ holsters. (According to Mr. Paolo Tagini, who edits the Italian firearms magazine, Armi Magazine, the weapons likely were 1851 Colt Navy Model six-shot revolvers in .36 caliber or imitations thereof.) At that moment, a lizard ran across the road. Gabriel Possenti took aim, fired and killed it with one shot. Then, he turned his weapons toward the gang which, surprised and shocked, left the village.
Just now I had the WordPress write-a-post window open and ready to share with all three of you a funny happenstance last night at work when the phone rang. It was my Comadre from V-Land informing me that my Godson was shot thrice during a carjacking/possible kidnapping. The kid is OK (Kid? he is what? in his late 30s-early 40’s and with kids of his own) and by the grace of God and lousy marksmanship from the Bad Guys, he is back home with grazing shots to one of his nipples (Dude, radical piercing yo!), to the side of his abdomen and a full penetration to the fleshy part of his thigh. Nothing major was hit but he is in some pain… no shit.
According to the story, he was coming out of his girlfriend’s house at 9 pm (first mistake) in a very nasty area of town (mistake number dos) when he was approached by parties unknown who demanded his vehicle. He did what was supposed to do and handed over the keys of his 4×4 plus whatever other personal belongings he had. One of the Bad Guys started to pistol whip him and tried to force him into his 4×4 for a possible Secuestro Express (Express Kidnapping: It denotes kidnapping a person and forcing him or her to withdraw his bank account via ATMS or even maybe calling home and asking for a low to moderate ransom to be delivered within a very short frame of time usually under a day. About 50% of the victims are killed during this crime) Godson was smart enough to put up a serious unarmed fight but got shot in the process. The kid is not big, but he is about 0.07% body fat and willing to use muscle. The fight must have been good that the BGs left without a single good and Godson drove himself to the hospital to get treated.
Even tough the dumb sonofabitch had his head looking for blemishes on his prostate instead of acting smart and safe, he acted decisively when the time came and managed to scare the BGs away and survived the encounter.
No matter how much we scan and stay aware, there is the chance we may get bushwhacked and the only way to survive it is to act fast and with lots of violence. You cannot plan for every situation (ask Bill Hitchcock) but if attacked and the opportunity arises, counter attack with all your fury plus a ton you can borrow from anywhere.
“I’ve come to believe he (Clinton) needs a certain level of violence in this country. He is willing to accept a certain level of killing to further his political agenda.
The above quote sent shocks all over the media when it was published. It was called crass, uncaring, a lie, another example of the racism of the NRA, etc, etc, ad nauseum. I mean The Liberals-Progressives are well know for their Peace Marches, singing Kumbaya and raising white baby doves that come with olive branches from the factory. They would never resort to violence!….. except history proves otherwise. From bombing government offices in the 60’s to direct physical attacks against those who dare raise a opposing opinion, the Left will not give a damn about direct action and people getting hurt or killed because it will gather headlines that they will control since the Traditional Media are their political whores.
When a black man appeared in a anti Obama rally with a legal rifle and openly carrying a sidearm, The Media edited out to make it appear as it was a white guy and immediately played the race card and doomed assassination attempts against the President. However, when SEIU goons openly beat the hell out of a black conservative during a Town Hall meeting in St. Louis, not only Media was mum, but even the authorities dragged their feet for months before even making the appearance of investigating. Are you scheduled to give a speech in a college? You will be shut out by the Liberals-Progressives without giving you a chance to say the first word and take off stage by force. The First Amendment only applies to ideas approved by them.
Now what is all of what i just mentioned have to do with the opening quote? I mean, that is “healthy and sometimes a bit spirited protest” (yeah sure) but killing? I must be exaggerating. Well, you wouldn’t say so if you were facing the following “spirited” protest against Chancellor Robert Birgeneau’s house as reported by the Daily Californian.
Between 40 and 75 people marched to Birgeneau’s home near the northwest corner of campus at about 11 p.m. Friday night. Some wielded torches that were allegedly thrown at police, while others broke the outside lighting to the house, overturned planters, damaged “impact resistant” windows on the house and scattered garbage brought from a nearby student housing cooperative, police said
By the way, The San Francisco Chronicle regards this incident as just plain vandalism even though police arrested two people for assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer and a slew of other charges. I am sure the two “freedom fighters” are already released with the apologies of the court and the Officers will be properly remanded for sensitivity training.
Going back to my point. There have been no condemnation from the upper echelons of the Liberal/Progressives against this attack. Some mid level type have poopooed the events but everything else has been low key or ignored by the Big Media. The end result will be that some other bunch of idiots will try the torch thing again and the results may differ.
I am not going to lie here. If I am woken up in the middle of the night by the sound of crashing items through my window, I will arm myself. If when I peek outside I see and hear a mob chanting and sporting torches, the long gun will come out and rest assured the first imbecile that tries to toss one fire stick my way will receive a ration of ballistic counterpoints. Arson is a crime and if people are inside a dwelling, it is just plain an attempt of murder and thus lethal weapon is permitted legally and morally a mandate. I will shed not a tear nor feel remorse for the fool or fools that tried to burn my family and myself because I happen to have a different political opinion.
But I also know it will be played different in the Media. I will be seen as the crazy inbred redneck gun owner (It doesn’t matter if you are a Chinese Gay hairdresser, if you use a gun to defend yourself, you will miraculous transformed into a retard redneck) that took matters into his hands and instead of calling police, he exacted vigilante justice on a poor misguided soul who now will become a martyr for Hope and Change. In other words, some poor schmuck died but we can use him so Long Live the Revolution. Horst-Wessel songs/poem/blogs/films will be written/recorded/produced to commemorate his sacrifice and to prove once again that violence is not the solution and that if it wasn’t for my evil gun, the Poor Schmuck would still be alive and sucking resources from law abiding taxpayers.
So yes, they are willing to accept a certain level of killing to further his political agenda… as long as they are not their asses with the red dot painted upon.
