Comment issue

Seems a few folks’ comments are getting gobbled up by my spam filter. I try to monitor it but, frankly, I get so many spam comments per day, it’s difficult to keep up with. So, if it happens to you, it’s not personal. But let me know. One hint is stop using the word socialism. Because it contains the name of common ED drug that spammers like to spam about.

Fake news

Anti-gun hack responds to criticism of his fake news with more fake news.

Like that time we banned drugs and there was no more overdoses

Heroin overdoses surpass gun deaths.

This is why you should practice drawing a gun

Watch as this guy almost puts a .45 caliber hole in his hand:

Stay calm when driving

A guy in Knoxville was in some sort of traffic dispute. He shot and killed the other person involved and then shot and killed himself. The shooter had a carry permit.

I can imagine getting upset at other drivers. Getting upset enough to shoot one, not so much.

Speaking of “sufficient common sense gun safety laws”

Congress has launched a Congressional Second Amendment Caucus. They are looking to pass pro-gun bills and undo several decades worth of erosion to second amendment protections.

Gun salesman of the century has regrets


If you ask me where has been the one area where I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied, it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on Earth in which we do not have sufficient common sense gun safety laws

You never proposed any. You proposed gun control that has been proven ineffectual everywhere it has been tried.

The AP:

Gun-rights backers vow to ‘go on offense’ during Trump years

Firearms enthusiasts who embraced Donald Trump’s campaign and his full-throated support of the Second Amendment are expecting a sweeping expansion of gun rights under his administration and a Congress firmly in Republican hands.

Among their priorities: eliminating gun-free zones at schools, reducing requirements for background checks and ensuring that concealed carry handgun permits from one state are recognized everywhere in the U.S.

It’s from LaPierre’s statement I mentioned before. I don’t see the hearing protection act mentioned.

I’m skeptical


The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said a buckle attached to a thigh holster likely contributed to a deputy accidentally firing his gun.

In early November, a Fresno County Sheriff’s Deputy was in the area of Church and Gearhart Avenues when his gun fired while still in the holster — injuring the deputy’s leg. The deputy was treated and release from the hospital the same day.

Investigators with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said the equipment was inspected and tested. They believe a part of the buckle got caught between the trigger and the holster, causing the gun to fire.

What sort of buckle would be near a holster?

This seems neat

So, Sandy Hook Promise made some silly video that implies reading gun magazines may be a sign you’re about to go on a mass shooting. Well, it looks like they stole it from a filmmaker who isn’t too happy about it. He even did a side by side comparison:

Making gun sales great again

People figured after Trump won the election that there would be a drop in gun sales. Turns out, not so much. Record sales on Black Friday was one indication. And now, this: We thought Trump’s win would slow gun demand. It hasn’t

Gays, women and minorities seem to be a factor in this trend.

So, it’s like voting then?

A court rules that photo ID can’t be required for a handgun carry permit.

The dumbest journalism you’ll see today. And maybe for a while

Rachel Polansky has a rather hysterical piece with this catchy title: NBC2 Investigation: Legally buying guns you can’t legally carry

I know, right? Ok, look here, hon. People buy hunting rifles. And buying a handgun doesn’t mean you’ll carry it. Reading further, I’m guessing she’s one of those people, who are often journalists, that equate permits to carry with registering or whatever. I mean, this person says some really stupid stuff:

The NBC2 Investigators have uncovered a flaw in Florida’s gun checks system.

300,000 people legally bought guns in Florida in the last four months. Only 100,000 people got their licenses to carry in the same time frame.

What does that mean for the other 200,000 people? Do they already have their licenses? Are they illegally carrying?

The NBC2 Investigators found out no one knows for sure because two different state agencies handle Floridas gun buying-and-carrying process.

Watching the video, all of the journalists are stupid. And reading the reporter’s website, wow. Being a journalist on TeeVee apparently does not require the ability to think or, you know, do some fucking journalism.

The future of the gun rights movement

An open thread. I think the only thing that is a certainty are supreme court picks. Everything else depends on a Republican congress that usually ignores gun owners once elected.

Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act case

A gun shop has agreed to pay out $2.2M:

Delana filed her lawsuit after her daughter, Colby Weathers, bought a gun at Odessa Gun & Pawn Shop and used it to kill Tex Delana, her father and Delanas husband.

Delana had called the store on June 25, 2012, pleading with it not to sell a gun to her daughter. Weathers had bought a gun there previously and later attempted to commit suicide. Delana gave the store manager her daughters full name, Social Security number and birthdate and told him, Im begging of you. Im begging of you as a mother, if she comes in, please dont sell her a gun, her lawsuit stated.

Despite Delanas plea, the store sold Weathers a gun and ammunition. She shot and killed Tex Delana within the hour. Weathers eventually pleaded not guilty to murder by reason of a mental defect or disease and was committed to the care of the Missouri Department of Mental Health.

Interesting. I am not a lawyer but I can see the case for actual negligence here. Any opinions?


Well, better later than never.

Handgun recommendations for new shooters

Chris has a look at the issue. Obviously, it’s dependent on what the new shooter wants the gun for. If they want a plinker, one for defense, hunting etc. But I tell everyone who is new to guns and wants a handgun for self defense the same thing. Get a Glock. In 9mm. The G17 or G19 are both fine. The 17 being the big one and the 19 hitting the sweet spot for carry. If you’re limited to ten rounds by state law, then the 26 is fine, though not optimal.

Get a Glock. In 9mm.

If you don’t like its non standard grip angle and want better stock sights, get S&W M&P. In 9mm. I prefer the M&P’s grip angle. I have both.

Trump’s staff and the second amendment

What Trumps Staff Picks Mean For The Second Amendment. Hopefully, he’ll remember the support he got from the NRA and let gun rights go on offense, unlike past Republicans who pander to gun rights folks during election and then forget about them after it’s over. Like Democrats do with minorities.
