Buy a gun

I’ve said it a lot.

Memphis Mayor Herenton (who is not a member of mayors against guns) says:

“The streets of Memphis are very much like the streets of many major cities. Many of them are unsafe, so I urge the citizens to use an abundance of caution.”

Strong words. And here are a few more. “I do not favor vigilante justice. Not everybody should own a gun. But the Constitution does permit people to own handguns for their own protection.” Mayor Herenton has admitted one time that he carried a handgun, during a 1998 downtown rally of the Ku Klux Klan. “I am authorized to carry a handgun,” Herenton says.

And in the city of Greanleaf, Idaho:

After seeing the chaos of Hurricane Katrina, a city councilor in this tiny Idaho town founded by pacifist Quakers came up with a novel idea.

Ordinance 208, passed by the City Council on Tuesday, asks Greenleaf’s 862 residents who do not object on religious or other grounds to keep a gun at home in case they are overrun by refugees from the Gulf Coast.

Note: they asked. They did not require.

    In case they are overrun by refugees? Idaho? I’m not one for finding racism in everything, but come on.

    Well, now you’re being Idahoist.

    Seriously, displaced persons (or refugees or Tim or whatever you wish to call them) are what they are regardless of race.

  5. Sean Braisted Says:

    Oh, I’m certainly an Idahoist.

  6. Captain Holly Says:

    Oh, they’re afraid of refugees alright — those upper-class liberals fleeing the Socialist People’s Republik of Kalifornia. They come to small towns in Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and then promptly seek to turn them into a new version of their Worker’s Paradise (see Park City, UT and Ketchum, ID). The words “Gulf Coast” should actually read “West Coast”.

    Now HERE is a Law!!!!!!

    Because those that would propose gun “control” cannot overcome the fact of this ordinances success, therefore they choose to ignore it or hide the story as deep as they can.
    Those are just a few facts that those that propose gun control would like f…

    […] I mentioned yesterday that some unexpected folks were advocating it. Well, in Australia: A shooters’ rights group has called for Saturday to be a national ‘buy a gun’ day, drawing strong opposition from gun control lobbyists. […]
