Virginia Politician Joins Ranks of Political Dumbassery

2 Comments

Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of stories about the burning stupid of politicians. There was Hank “Guam is capsizing” Johnson, who worried that the small island would actually tip over if we staged a military buildup there.

There was this moron Joe Salazar, who didn’t think women should defend themselves against rape with a gun, because they’re just too emotional and stupid to do so. Use call boxes and whistles, he told potential rape victims.

There was Sheila Jackson Lee, who thought the Democrats should write Executive Orders for the President.

There was Todd Akin’s blisteringly dumb “legitimate rape” comment.

There were Anthony Weiner’s numerous gaffes with Weiner Jr.

There was Sarah Palin’s “North Korean allies” gaffe.

And there was Corrine Brown’s historic speech on the floor of the Congress, “GO GATA!” which will forever go down in history as one of the most entertaining speeches on the House floor – one that never fails to crack me up.

The list of politician stupid is too long to detail, and frankly, there’s just not enough bandwidth to do it justice.

And recently, it looks like a Virginia legisleech is joining the ranks of the stupid.

In his efforts to relieve Virginia gun owners of their rights, Alfonso Lopez (D-umbass, Arlington) has introduced new legislation to ban high capacity magazines in the Commonwealth. In order to add gravitas… or just hysterical idiocy… to his proposal, Lopez decided to show just how “unsafe” the residents of the Old Dominion are with these evil high capacity magazines running around.

“Since 1931, federal law prohibits me from having more than three shotgun shells in my shotgun when I’m duck hunting,” he said. “That means that ducks have more protection than people in Virginia.

“Let me repeat that: Under the law, ducks have more protection than people in Virginia,” Lopez said.

Yep. Ducks are apparently safer in Virginia than humans, says Lopez.

Well, PolitiFact disagrees. As a matter of fact, they gave this claim their “Pants on Fire” rating, meaning if Lopez was any more off, his pants would double as an incendiary device used in controlled forest burns.

The very premise of Lopez’s claim is flawed. It’s legal to hunt ducks in Virginia. If you shoot one with a barred firearm for duck hunting, it’s a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum $500 fine.

It’s illegal to shoot people in Virginia with any firearm, except in limited instances of self defense.

The murder of person in Virginia is punishable by death or lengthy prison sentences. There’s no jail time for shooting a duck, even if it’s done with an illegal shotgun.

It’s illegal to even point a gun at another person in Virginia in a menacing way, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and a $2,500 fine. State law is silent about pointing a gun at a duck.

For his part, the idiot tried to walk back his lunacy, claiming that’s not what he meant, but PolitiFact points out that not only did he say exactly that “ducks have more protection that people” from assault gun violence, but that he repeated it to drive the point home.

I’m sure the ducks are worried.

Dumb PSA encourages kids to engage in felonious behavior

10 Comments

Ever wonder where stupid ideas come from? I’ve been following the #gunsense feed on Twitter for months, and I have to admit there are some incredibly stupid claims out there. I’ve seen everything from gun grabbers’ paranoid delusions about AR15s being evil killing machines to calls for SWATting of gun owners who choose to open carry their firearms.

But even I – as jaded as I am – couldn’t imagine this much stupid packed into one three-minute video.

The “PSA” was produced by some leftist twit named Rejina Sincic, and it’s filled with SO much wrong, it’s hard to imagine why anyone would ever want to promote this bit of stupidity.

It depicts a teenage kid in a nice, peaceful home with his mom, stealing – yes STEALING – a pistol out of his mom’s drawer (I suppose we should be grateful he at least practices good trigger discipline when he steals the firearm, places it in his bag and walks out with it). He then brings it to his properly diverse school, filled with tired, but properly diverse children. After class ends, this kid slams the gun down on his teacher’s desk and says, “Can you take this away? I don’t feel safe with a gun in my house.”

The last credit says, “Stop Gun Violence Now.”

Let me see if I have this right. A kid steals a gun from his utterly peaceful home, brings it to school, hands it over to another person (the teacher) all in the name of stopping “gun violence.”

How much criminal, felonious stupid can be packed into one anti-gun ass jerkery? My buddy Erin has a list.

0:15 – Burglary (kid entered his mom’s bedroom with the intent to commit theft)

0:23 – Robbery AND minor in possession of a firearm AND, depending on the state and the value of the firearm, grand theft

0:40 – Clearly, the kid has time to think about what he’s doing — it’s not a spur of the moment thing — so there’s probably some premeditation going on

0:46 – Bringing a firearm onto school grounds (Federal Felony!)

1:41 – Menacing 

1:46 – Transfer of stolen goods AND illegal transfer of a firearm (and, also notably, no Background Check performed on the teacher)

And let’s not forget that the kid is too young to be carrying said gun, let alone carrying it concealed, which requires a license in most states!

So this daft bint wants us to stop violence by promoting theft, violation of the “gun-free” school zone law, and the transfer of stolen property. Not to mention the promotion of fascist snitchery. “Go on, kids! It’s OK to commit multiple felonies as long as you rat your parents out to your teacher!”

Criticism of this lunacy, of course, was palpable, so this dummy decided to enlist the help of the CSGV – the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence – the horde of tyrannical douche canoes that sprouted out of the National Coalition to ban Handguns, whose goal is not stopping “gun violence,” but “licensing gun owners, registering firearms, and banning private ownership of handguns.”

She couldn’t actually refute any of the criticism herself, so she figured she would glom on to one of the most heinously, anti-freedom, anti-rights, anti-Constitution groups out there to help her spread her evil.

Don’t worry, Rejina. You’re now infamous for having made one of the most unoriginal, dull, dimwitted, and stupid anti-gun videos out there! Congratulations!

Thanks bunches, vagina voters!

Those of you alleged libertarians who went out and actively spread filth about Ken Cuccinelli during the last Virginia gubernatorial election because of the hysterical “OMG Cuccinelli wants to control my vagina!” meme gave us the corrupt scumbag Terry McAuliffe – I hope you’re happy. I know libertarians are supposed to give a shit about gun rights, so I hope they’re thrilled with McAuliffe’s efforts to destroy the Second Amendment in Virginia.

McAuliffe’s gun initiatives include proposals to:

  • Prohibit the possession of firearms by people subject to protective orders

  • Prohibit the possession of firearms by misdemeanor domestic violence offenders

  • Reinstate the one-handgun-a-month law

  • Revoke concealed-handgun permits for parents delinquent on child support payments

  • Close the “gun show loophole”

The Lautenberg Amendment already prohibits possession, transport, ownership, etc. of firearms by domestic abusers and those subject to a restraining order. And guess what! Any dillhole willing to beat up another person just because his nuts may itch that day will not be stopped by a piece of paper when it comes to purchasing a gun.

The unconstitutional, morally repugnant, and unnecessary one-handgun-a-month law was repealed in Virginia in 2012. Not only did Virginia not see an increase in gun-related crime after the repeal of this monstrosity, but these crimes actually had been on the decrease for a few years before the law was repealed, and continues to drop today.

Then McAuliffe wants to just cancel the Second Amendment rights of parents who are delinquent on child support payments. Now, having dealt with that situation, it’s revolting when a parent won’t support their children. But does that make said parent violent or dangerous? Will depriving them of their natural rights somehow reduce violence? The parent is broke, not violent, ferpetessake! So this is just another little chip off your gun rights.

And then there’s that nonexistent “gun show loophole.” It always boggles my mind when I see progtards drool that old meme. If there was indeed a gun show loophole through which criminals can easily purchase guns, wouldn’t they be purchasing said guns there in droves? Instead less than 1 percent of guns used in crimes were purchased at gun shows. Yeah, there’s a loophole. It’s called the black market, and it’s basic economics, which McAuliffe doesn’t seem to understand. The more you limit legal purchases of firearms and make the exercise of natural rights more onerous, the more people will simply purchase guns off the books. There’s a demand. There will always be a supply. I guess the War on Drugs taught him nothing.

But yes. The vagina voters from all over Virginia gave us McAuliffe. Corrupt, statist, arrogant, hypocritical McAuliffe, and now he’s going after the natural rights of Virginians.

Thanks, vagina voters. Thanks a pantsload. Enjoy your unregulated vaginas, because pretty soon, if T-Mac and crew have their way, you won’t be able to defend them with anything more than a back scratcher.

Let’s hope the Virginia GOP grows some testicles and ensures that Terry’s proposals swirl the drain with the rest of the turds.

More New and Pretty Stuff

It must be the Christmas season, because I’m getting new swag for my gun!

I know you guys remember the awesome holster my buddy Dennis of Dragon Leatherworks made for my M1911, right?

holster

 

Dennis also made me a pistol belt, which  love, and which I wear quite often, whether with a gun or without.

20130213-195013.jpg

Since Dennis sent me my belt, his business has taken a turn for the famous. Specifically, Dennis has not only designed a lunch box for one of the characters on NCIS, but he also designed a holster for the new NCIS: New Orleans.

bakula_valkyrie_02

Yes, that’s Scott Bakula wearing one of Dennis’ holsters – the Valkyrie.

bakula_valkyrie_01

Here’s a close-up. And me? I’m getting one in purple for my Glock 23!

I’m really excited about it, since currently, the Glock resides in an Uncle Mike’s – plain, black and boring. And I think it’s time I got something much more fun!

But that’s not all…

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but Dennis got his FFL a while back, and now his website not only has his custom holsters, but also guns, accessories, optics, reloading supplies… you name it, he has it! He even found me a revolver for the Redhead I was looking for and couldn’t find for a long time! And Dennis managed to put it on reserve for me with his supplier, so the Redhead will have a replacement for the revolver he loved that got really worn out a while back.

I’ve put a link to Dennis’ site on the right hand side of this blog, and I’m keeping it there. The site is beautiful, and ordering is super easy.

So please do check out my buddy’s site. Just click on the Dragon Leatherworks graphic on the right side, and check out all the cool stuff Dennis has!

Plus – you might get something before he becomes REALLY big and gets whisked away by Hollywood to provide exclusive holsters for TV stars!

 

 

 

 

THIS is why I carry a gun

A woman was sexually assaulted not two blocks from my house last night.

The victim told police that a man blocked her way and insisted that she kiss him in order to get past.

“Becoming increasingly concerned, the victim attempted to kiss the suspect on the cheek to placate him when the suspect grabbed the victim’s head and forcing a mouth-to-mouth kiss,” Arlington County Police said in a crime report. “As the victim was leaving, she was chased by the suspect who grabbed her by the arms before she could enter her vehicle. The suspect then forced one of her hands onto his crotch.”

First she tried to appease the scumbag, and then he chased her down to her car and forced an encounter.

Do you know what would have happened if this piece of shit tried that with me?

He’d have a .45 ACP hollowpoint hole center mass – and that’s if I was feeling generous. Because I’m thinking that hole would be better placed in the groin area.

Dear Ferguson “Protesters”

Not that I was surprised by your savage behavior after the grand jury failed to return an indictment of Darren Wilson but still, it’s pretty appalling to watch you fucking Neanderthals loot and destroy the property of innocent people merely because you disagreed with a legal decision.

The evidence didn’t bear out the testimony of your lying “eyewitnesses,” who are probably lucky they’re not being charged with perjury. Scientific evidence. Science. It doesn’t lie.

And because the jury chose to base its decision on the actual physical evidence presented, rather than the shrieking, screeching, race-baiting howls of cro-magnon barbarians, you decided you were entitled to either steal or destroy the property of others, who had nothing to do with said decision? To protest what you claim to be “injustice,” – even though the legal system worked as it was supposed to and the grand jury made its decision based on forensic evidence and witness testimony.

But no, that’s not good enough for you, because you were “ready for war” even before this decision was made public. You wanted to loot and riot. You relished the thought of sticking it to those who did you no harm, because of some imaginary “slight” to you from people whom you didn’t know. You saw this as an opportunity to cash in – to assuage your entitlement mentality – to punish others for your perceived slights.

You. Assholes.

You pernicious, barbaric, feral shitbags!

You were prepared for war, because no amount of evidence would convince you that anything but an indictment would be fair. You were prepared for war, because evidence didn’t matter to you. You were prepared for war, because your perceived slights were all projected onto this one case. You were prepared for war, because you wanted it.

Here’s hoping the peaceable citizens of Ferguson, MO – those who didn’t feel the need to “protest” by destroying the lives and property of innocent people – are armed and willing to ventilate your ignorant sub-human asses.

looting

You want war? You have no concept of it, and I’m fairly sure the rest of Ferguson – those who chose the high road and who chose to act like civilized human beings, and not like belligerent barbarians – is tired of your shit, and will fight back should you choose to victimize them.

You want war? You’re not going to like it.

You want war? You’d better not bitch when your ignorant asses get capped by those innocent people on whom you wage said war.

War is hell, and you’re bringing it down upon yourselves, assholes.

Love and kisses,

The rest of America

Florida State shooter

3 Comments

According to a police source, the guy who shot three people at Florida State University yesterday is Myron May. Here’s a profile. He was a lawyer who graduated from the university with a B.A. in economics in December 2005, and then proceeded to get his JD from Texas Tech University School of Law in December 2009.

The gun grabbers’ usual cacophony of “MOAR GUN CONTROLZ LAWZ” has already begun on my Twitter feed.

None of them can tell us which gun control initiative they advocate would have stopped this shooting.

FSU is a “gun-free” campus (and by “gun-free,” I mean the university disarms its students, in delusional hopes that crazed gunmen will also abide by their disarmament policies). So what are the gun grabbers going to do? Ban guns twice? Yeah, that’ll stop them.

Myron May was an attorney. Until September of this year, he was a felony prosecutor in New Mexico. Fairly sure he probably wasn’t a person who would have had a problem passing a background check.

From his Facebook page, it appears he lost his job as a prosecutor in New Mexico and moved back to Florida in November.

He was very religious, and eerily enough, here was his last Facebook post.

may

So what initiative would have stopped this guy, who quite obviously was out to commit suicide by cop? When ordered to put down his weapon, he fired at police instead, releasing a shitstorm of bullets.  He did not kill anyone. Two victims have been hospitalized. One has been released. It’s quite obvious the coward didn’t mean to kill anyone – just inflict enough damage to have the cops do what he was apparently too chickenshit to do.

So how would MOAR GUN CONTROLZ LAWZ have stopped this?

I’d love to hear some answers from those who advocate said folly.
