Quote of the Day: Tom McHale

A number of folks seem concerned about the sale of ammunition near homes and a restaurant that sells alcohol. I for one was glad to hear someone raise this issue because before now I didn’t realize that ammunition, left unsupervised, was prone to multi-day drinking benders. Heads up people!

I am laughing to hard to make sense. Go enjoy the rest of the article.

The Long, Slow Death Of The Gun Control Cult – Bearing Arms

Just 156 tired souls answered Bloomberg’s call to counter-protest the NRA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis held just miles from Moms Demand founder Shannon Watts’s home.

I know how sad of a protest it was, because I was there. I’ve attended wakes with more enthusiasm.

We are in a position that we have not been since probably before 1934 and perhaps even better. Astroturf cannot beat Grassroots in a world where  Gun Control no longer controls the flow of information.  We have more and more people coming into the gun culture and more people not interested in the gun culture but no longer afraid of it. The Narrative is hard to keep propped up when the alleged average Gun Nut is not the crazy Redneck hidden in the mountains planning to blow up a Federal building but Joe and Jane Nextdoor who you know for many years, watch games, go shopping with and send the kids to the same schools.

Yes, they are dying, but as Michael Bane said some weeks ago, that makes them dangerous animals capable of doing immense damage. We cannot turn our collective backs and we have to keep the pressure until they become dust like a bad guy from an Indiana Jones movie.

To this day, I still cannot figure why they could not simply follow the advice we gave them so many years ago: “Just leave us alone.”

Sorry for the lack of content

I had been suddenly flooded with overdue stuff that I scheduled in an almost big lump.

In fact, I just got back from a trip to the local office of the Social Security Administration, amazingly unharmed other than my nasal passages as it seems every brand of perfume and cologne was present and in full olfactory demonstration. I have to cigarette butts shoved in my nostrils to see if the nausea goes away.

So.. and while I get some lunch and get my brain somewhat functional,  leave you with this:
No idea what it is besides a bike


Out to Lunch

But since the Interwebs likes guns and shootings, a couple of pics of me shooting more than a decade ago as I started IDPA. Dashing fella!

Reloading on the ground is, shall we say demanding?
Taurus PT92-AF. And before you start mocking my selection, that gun NEVER failed at a match whole many custom 1911 kept farting away.

Dear @minasmith64 : Seriously, stop helping us.

This is an exchange that happened in Twitter. I saw this faked ad picture posted and I let the people know. I was amazed at the reply from the original individual:

Mina Smith 1

I intervened:
Mina Smith 2

I applied a wee bit of logic, not much as you don’t want to scare idiots..and it went downhill from there:Mina Smith 3She admits or at least acknowledges that the photo is questionable but does not care because of the message and she is in favor of being a scummy liar just like the opposition. But she has reasons:
Mina Smith 4Ladies and gents, I do not care how much you dislike the opposition or how much of a defender of the Second Amendment you think you are: We Do Not Need To Lie To Win.

We don’t need to make fake ads or come up with bullshit stats or wave a (fake) bloody shirt as we have truth on our side. If you cannot take the time to properly do research on our enemies and use their words and actions against them, just shut the hell up, watch Divorce Court, much on your Smuckers’ Goober-covered rice cakes and leave the rest of us do the work.

Seriously, Don’t help.

UPDATE: Mina is asking for proof instead of her providing the original screen cap. I found 2 more fake ads using the same rape theme and they are related to a fake/parody account:

fake account

fake account 2


But we have this words of warning from a President:

Gun Free Zones work wonderfully.

Gun Free Zone Venezuela:

venezuela mothers day
“Sister of one of the victims tells how he was killed.”

The title reads: 185 bodies taken to the morgue in eleven days.

And under it reads: Only on this past weekend there were 59 violent deaths (murders) in Caracas.

Down there the weekend is tallied as starting on 6 pm Friday night and ends on 8 am Monday morning so it was almost one body dropping per hour. And this is in a country with strict gun and knife control (Yes, they went British on that) and no civilian sales of firearms for the past 2 years.

What a nightmare.
