Pathetic

Law enforcement was aware of the Florida shooter. They were warned repeatedly and it sill happened.

An officer was on the scene when the shooting happened. He never entered the building or engaged the shooter. He’s resigned. Apparently, he took a position and radioed it in. Is that the protecting or the serving? Granted, it may have been a training issue as police, until recently, did tend to show up, secure the area, etc. But I don’t think that’s the case anymore.

Perhaps it is, then, a bit of projection that the sheriff is blaming the NRA for his department’s repeated failures. You, sir, are a clown.

‘It’s a Parkland, Florida, Every Two Days’

Talk at CPAC of ending the war on some drugs.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent?

Attendees of the ridiculous town hall threatened NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch saying burn her. Good thing she had a security detail, who probably had guns, to get her out of there.

So, CNN had a town hall

I was unavailable yesterday because Junior was being honored by the, err, Honor Society. But I’ve been catching up.

CNN should be embarrassed over their town hall. But that requires some level of awareness that they don’t have. It was moderated by a guy who used to work for Handgun Control, Inc. The audience was stacked against the pro rights side. And basically consisted of kids, recently the victims of something horrific, hysterically emoting and virtue signaling. I mean, seriously, this is considered discourse? It was a disgrace.

A survivor claims CNN gave him scripted questions. The good guys say they were not informed of how things were going to go. Another survivor says CNN just wants them to promote an agenda, not actually opine. It was scripted.

It’s like the anti-gunners are running the black lives matter playbook.

Beware the metrocons

What he said.

Speaking of, the WSJ says republicans should not add reciprocity to a gun bill. Uh, no. I want something in return. I realized WSJ is similar to SJW but give me a break.

Life in the future

The square root sign looks like a gun. The police were called.

The future is stupid.

Now that’s funny

Heh:

Just last week, Congress was calling on Tide to change the design of the Pods so teenagers would stop eating them. This week, teenagers should determine gun policy.

And we shouldn’t base policy on the emotional reactions of freaked out victims.

Bumpity

Bump stocks are all the rage again since Trump told the DOJ to make up some laws to ban it. Slidefire’s site is still down, due to volume. I confess, I went over there to buy one just have it. Sebastian with some common sense:

So what do you do? Call on ATF to undertake rule making, where you can control the process under a friendly administration, and make sure whatever comes out is narrowly worded. Also, since its regulation, rather than law, its much easier to change.

And the opposing view, advocating that congress should take it up.

Of course, a ban is not going to eliminate them in the era of 3D printing.

When the NRA and ACLU agree

No, Trump Did Not Make It Easier for Mentally Ill People to Buy Guns

Common sense gun safety

Sarasota County Sheriff:

My recommendation is for the school to consider implementing a quasi-school security program that puts retired law enforcement and military veterans on Sarasota County campuses. Members would be contracted through the schools however, our agency will be made available to put them through the proper training. I have spoken with the superintendent who agrees this can be a win-win for everyone.

An idea that may actually work.

A thing your “we must do something about guns” friends on Facebook need to watch

This is very well done. Although, he seems to have gotten the term “assault rifle” (which is actually a thing) confused with “assault weapon” (which is made up):

Too many great quotes to list. But this made me laugh:

It’s very hard to subdue a home intruder with your dick.

We have facts. They have dick jokes.

Hoplophobia

A city has banned guns at a Civil War enactment. It seems they’ve allowed it in the past and now are not. They asked them to use wooden sticks instead.

They’re already there

The mayor of Dallas, butthurt over something, wants the NRA to not have its convention there. I’m guessing NRA membership in Dallas is pretty high.

Attack the money

An effort to get financial institutions to not do business with the gun industry.

Waiting period challenge goes down

California’s waiting period was denied cert at the SCOTUS. Thomas dissented noting the second amendment is a constitutional orphan.

Trump directs DOJ to ban bump stocks

Seems to me this would require passing a law:

Just a few moments ago I signed a memo directing the attorney general to propose regulations that ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns

Related: Slidefire, a maker of bump stocks, seems to be having website issues. They appear to have DDOS protection enabled.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent?

A billboard was vandalized to read “Kill the NRA”.

Eleventy

Despite all the hemming and hawing from the press and democrats, the US is ranked 11th in mass shootings. Or 12, depending on which metric.

The internet for the last week

SJW: Let’s ban all guns!

Gun Nut: Uhm, no.

SJW: Ok, let’s ban the ones that look scary!

Gun Nut: Also, no.

SJW: WHY WON’T YOU COMPROMISE WITH US!!! YOU’RE EVIL AND WANT CHILDREN TO DIE. THERE’S BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS !!!!111ELEVEN

Interesting

A gun dealer has been found guilty of, well, lots of things. Seems he conspired with some police to get department letterhead to procure machine guns for them. And there are laser sights only available to law enforcement? And that’s an FDA reg? Anyone know anything about that.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent?

They want you dead. They just lack the fortitude to do it themselves.

Republicans react to Florida shooting

Prominent republican donor says Republicans should pass a ban on guns to keep getting money. Given his history of backing the losers, meh.

Trey Gowdy supports banning bump stocks, even though one wasn’t used in FL.

The idiocy does need to be mocked. Just yours.

John Kasich:

If all the sudden you couldn’t buy an AR-15, what would you lose? Would you feel your second amendment rights would be eroded?

I’d lose my freedom and my rights would be eroded. Now, go away.

Trump open to improving background checks.

Moms need to get more demanding

They only have about 3,000 members.

Lying to score cheap political points

The left and the press (but I repeat myself) claimed the shooter was trained by the NRA. But it’s not true.

Russia! Russia! Russia!

13 Russians indicted for trolling on the internet. They bought most ads after the election. And they tried to help Stein and Sanders.

Yup

Preach. But instead some advocate acting in the emotional way when the facts aren’t all out.

True enough

Editorial: Thoughts and prayers wont stop these mass shootings

I don’t think thoughts and prayers work that way. Of course, what’s also true is that your calls for gun control won’t stop mass shootings either.

They only know the one song

Another mass shooting. Another with warning signs. This time they were ignored almost completely. And the press and the left (but I repeat myself) are in full gun control advocacy mode. There have not been 18 school shootings this year.

It’s a repeat of the last one. Lots of calls for “action” but no real definition of what “action” would be.
