Dear @SFDB: You keep using those words……

Meet Rick:
SFDB Rick
Former blogger (Stuck on the Palmetto and South Florida Daily Blog) now plying his words in Twitter under @SFDB and former  troll of this blog. Rick is very much attuned with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s insurrectionist meme and thinks himself as a defender of the Government which is understandable within reason since he allegedly works for the FAA.  He is one of those Liberals that wax philosophically about the poor, the downtrodden and the need for equality while telling us about cuisine , exciting cars, noble spirits and travels. Basically the typical Lib that if he ever bumps into a homeless, he’d probably go into hysterics, demand an immediate tetanus shot and would burn his clothes.

Now, since I banned him from this blog, he asked me the following via Twitter:
SFDB Plot

 

This was a response of my previous post CSGV still does not get this country and I will proceed to give him an answer:


plot

 verb \ˈplät\

: to plan secretly to do something usually illegal or harmful.


 

Damn it Rick! Are you really that dense? What is so secret about what I write in my blog? I do not have a Members of Secret Plotting Society Log-In section, Do I? There goes the whole plot thing down the drain. Try harder next time!

Next:


over·throw

 verb \ˌō-vər-ˈthrō\

: to remove (someone or something) from power especially by force.


You mean like the stunt they pulled over Texas on Governor Rick Perry that even the New York Times (which I would almost be you are subscribed to the Sunday edition) said “appears to be the product of an overzealous prosecution.”?

Oh, I know in your hearts of hearts you mean if we all are gonna jump in our Rebel-and-Gadsden-Flag-Waving pick up trucks and storm the local FBI building whole shooting our Evil Black Rifles from the hip and shit like that? Nope.  Claire Wolfe said: “America is at that awkward stage; it’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.” but I am a bit more optimistic than that since (at least on the Second Amendment front) we have done wonderful things within the system which I know keep up at nights crying into your pillow.

After that long preview, let us get to titanium tacks, shall we?

Dear Rick: Just because a government is elected, that does not mean is immune to any criticism and even prosecution.  Just because they got the majority vote, does not mean they are infallible or incapable of wrongdoing or malice. Stalin was properly appointed to power by the Central Committee, Robert Mugabe was elected president of Zimbabwe over and over and over…you get the idea. Hugo Chavez was also elected and “given” extraordinary powers by the “people.” Juan Peron fucked up Argentina seven ways from Domingo but was elected and re-elected democratically. Hell, there are all kinds of sick dictators that arrived to power via the democratic vote but they could have used a fast and proper exit.

Now, are we in the same position as Argentina, Venezuela Zimbabwe, etc? No, The answer is that simple. Are we starting to head that way? Some  (a lot?) of us think so, specially those who lived in countries like that as we are hearing the same political BS,  implementation of programs and disregard for the rule of law and the rights of the citizens by those in power.

I know you guys keep calling it a democracy, but we are not a democracy, we are a constitutional republic founded by people who went against the legitimately instituted government of the time. Surprise! The Founding Fathers were insurrectionist! In your world, they would have to be arrested and sent to prison immediately.

So the question you should have asked was : Do you believe that Americans have the right of dispose of a government that has failed to follow the law, that have abused the powers derived from the consent of the governed and have engaged in other abuses and usurpations that may led to despotism? You betcha. It is up to the failing government to choose how they will be vacating the premises, because they will. It is our right to help them.

Castle Rock voters say authority to restrict firearms rests with them.

Castle Rock voters have taken away the town manager’s power to restrict the open carry of firearms in public buildings and parks, while insisting that any future decisions on gun restrictions in town of 50,000 go to a vote of the people.

via Castle Rock voters say authority to restrict firearms rests with them – The Denver Post.

If the name Castle Rock rings something in your memory, it might be the Supreme Court decision in Castle Rock versus Gonzalez confirming once again that Police have no Duty to Protect.

Apparently, most of the people of Castle Rock learned the lesson.

“No more gun deaths!: (Unless you happen to be a Gun Owner in which case do die slowly and painfully.)

Make no mistake, it positively infuriates me that small-minded, ignorant, intolerant people are incessantly trying to find ways to restrict, limit, regulate, or outright abolish the rights of law-abiding Americans, but I have never once wished death upon any of them, nor would I celebrate their deaths if that were to happen.  Disagreeing with people is all well and good, and animated disagreements are certainly to be expected, but I cannot say as though I have understood or will ever understand the mentality of wishing death upon those you disagree with.

via yes, “gun control” supporters want you dead | walls of the city.

If you ever wonder how come Germany descended into the bowels of moral hell in the 30s and 40s, you need not to look further but to the Opposition.

That is why we fight.

CSGV still does not get our Country.

They are throwing fits in the Book of Faces:

Yo Skippy! We are a Constitutional Republic in case you missed that civics class in school.

And since you guys appear to have forgotten:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

This insurrectionst proclamation brought to you by the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence.

 

SQUIB!!!

Via Concealed Nation, a video that should be shown to every new shooter:

Squibs are scary as heck. If you are very lucky and have a big hunk of steel as a shooting piece, you will ruin it but that is as far as it will go:

squib 2
That is 8 (eight) rounds inside the barrel. If the gun was a traditional six shooter…

However, if you are not lucky:

squib 3You have pieces of gun flying like shrapnel everywhere. You can do your own image search on that one.

As a reloader, I am well aware that I am at a higher risk for squibs than the average guy buying ammo at the local Wally World.  I take my reloading very seriously and will tolerate no distractions while on the press. That being said, I was not immune and had 2 incidents both at IDPA matches: The first one was so obvious, I stopped immediately, unloaded & proceeded to the safe area where with the proper tools I removed the bullet and returned to the competition.

The second squib that was scary as I did not feel it or hear it. Neither did the Safety Officer or the Score Keeper or anybody in the squad. The only reason that I did not have a magnificent KaBoom! was that the bullet only traveled so far down the barrel as making the full chambering of the next round impossible. When the next round failed to fire, I automatically did a malfunction drill (Tap-Rack) and when that failed, I repeated automatically. It was then when I stopped and we all realized the gun was out of battery but did not know why. The Safety Officer had me unload the gun and we took a quick peek inside the barrel where somebody with better vision noticed the bullet and called the squib.  It looked something similar to this:

squib 1

 

I left the line and a friend helped me remove the bullet. when it came out, we found out a chunk of what had to be half-burnt propellant attached to the base of the bullet.  Somehow during reloading a drop of some liquid or some other foreign substance had entered the case and altered the properties of the propellant.

That was it for me that day as I lost any confidence in the rest of the ammo. The good thing is I keep my batches to 200 rounds and bagged separately so I only had to reject about a 100 rounds left on that bag. They are now in the To-Be-Recycled can for whenever I feel I need to recover the components. We were very lucky indeed.

Lesson learned.

 

And the Antis lose it because a school can defend its students.

A group that seldom gets mentioned in this pages:

protest easy guns Texas schools armed teachers

And the post refers to an article in the HuffPo which on first view one can easily deduce where it is going:

protest easy guns Texas schools armed teachers huffpo

“Exponentially more schools have said, ‘Thanks but no thanks, we’d rather not have guns on school property,'” Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, told WSJ. “If you talk to most teachers and educators, their response is, let teachers teach and let law-enforcement officers do their jobs.”

Basically “We cannot have people with guns in a school in case some nutjob comes to kill our students. If something happens what we do is for people with guns to come late to the attack because that makes much more sense.”
