Who runs March for our Lives?

If they have all the grassroots, why is it I only see David “Media” Hogg on the TeeVee? Has anyone heard from his parents?

The left eats itself

The things progressives worry about: Is gun control movement too white?

The lawsuit will be a good one

Open Carry Texas founder arrested for carrying a gun.

Congrats

Shooting Illustrated hits a half million in the dead tree magazine market. As Tam said: If you read this blog, are an NRA member, and aren’t getting SI, you’re wrong. Fix that.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent?

Your death makes the world a better place.

Life in the future

Africentric Math. And I can’t get socks that stay up.

The future is stupid.

Factors against us

Sebastian lays out a nice list.

As for things working for us, the mouth noises being made about repealing the second amendment. I hope this trend continues. It works in our favor. Let them overstep.

“journalism”

That’s some “arsenal”:

Upper Darby police showed evidence they say they pulled from Suns bedroom, including a military-style ballistic vest, ski mask, military web gear with pouches to hold ammunition clips, a high-powered crossbow and arrows, a bullet loading dock for an AR-15 and AK-47, an empty box for a gun-making kit, 20 live round, ear protectors for firing, and a strangulation device called a garrote.

Now, a crossbow is “high powered”.

Ok, not really. I’m out. But here’s an ad for a Land Cruiser that’s been heavily armored.

The gunny side reacts

NRA’s political fund sees donations spike in February after Florida shooting. And you should join too. Or send them a check if you’re a member.

And NICS checks in February were the second highest ever. The previous record was 2016 when people thought Hillary would win.

Next you’ll tell me it wasn’t grassroots!

Turns out the crowd at the March from Critical Thinking was only 10% under the age of 18. And largely was middle-aged women.

Takes some getting used to

Pros and Cons of Handgun Optics. In my experience, the first couple of range sessions didn’t go very well. But afterwards, I got significant improvement seemingly all at once. YMMV.

Speaking of “journalism”

The WaPo:

One in five Americans wants the Second Amendment to be repealed, national survey finds

Gee, what other way could that headline have been written? Maybe four out of five don’t?

Kind of ironic

A rapper who performed at the March from Critical Thinking has a gun permit. And he was arrested in California for carrying a gun because it wasn’t a CA permit.

You want gun control? You got it.

“Journalism”

MSNBC host says he’s a member of the NRA. The NRA says no he’s not. Apparently, he confused marketing materials for membership with actual membership. And this guy is supposed to be a fact checker of some kind.

Quote of the day

I have nothing to add:

I don’t see the logic

Justice John Paul Stevens Is Wrong About the Second Amendment, Again

I don’t really understand Stevens’ piece. He says all those gun controls are hunky dory, much like he did in his dissent in Heller where he acknowledged an individual right to arms, but we should repeal the second amendment because reasons.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent?

After participating in the March From Critical Thinking, the brother of Reverend Al Sharpton was charged in a murder. The victim was shot by someone he was with. Aiding and abetting makes him culpable for the murder.

Welcome to gun rights

More African Americans are bearing arms due to threats of racist violence:

The National African American Gun Association, known as NAAG, has tripled its chapters from 14 to 42 since President Donald Trumps inauguration, as more people of color join gun clubs and refute the NRA. Some say they are defending themselves against racism and supporting a call to arms amid a civil rights struggle. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Simon Ostrovsky reports.

When it comes to racism, I think Trump is the least of their worries. But, still, always happy to have a growing demographic of gun owners.

Everything I don’t like is a loophole

Loophole” is just another word for “lawful”

Common sense for schools

The GA Supreme Court has ruled that students who act in self defense cannot be suspended for fighting.

Bumpity

Looks like the first attempt at a bump stock ban has been written up. They had to distort the law to do it. And after you read through the nonsense about the law, the section on the ban’s costs is amusing. And, no, current owners would not be compensated for destruction of property that is legal right now. But if that gets implemented, turns those owners into felons.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent?

A candidate for sheriff of Buncombe County wants to kill gun owners and take their guns. Well, come and get them.

So, there was a rally this weekend

Fortunately, the kids involved aren’t too smart and haven’t tempered their true feelings about gun owners like most democrats do. They wear the hate proudly. And let the facade slip away. Also, they’re litterbugs.

And that Hogg kid has no irony meter whatsoever. He’s upset that because of the actions of a others, he’s being having his rights restricted:

Its unnecessary, its embarrassing for a lot of the students and it makes them feel isolated and separated from the rest of American school culture where theyre having essentially their First Amendment rights infringed upon because they cant freely wear whatever backpack they want regardless of what it is

That’s his response to having to carry a clear backpack to school. Not one of those assault backpacks. And that would be the fourth amendment, Sprout.

I don’t do business with them

But if I did, I’d end any business I had with CitiBank.

There, we fixed it

Ah, commies. Via the Captain.

In Vermont

The house is backing “sweeping” gun laws.
