Absolutely Amazing

ColtCCO has had a run of bad luck. You’ll recall a bit back an incompetent policeman body-slammed him for lawfully carrying a firearm because (and I am not making this up) said policeman thought he was in Ohio.

Then, he’s traveling. Gets pulled over and finds out the his handgun carry permit was revoked. He gets his gun taken. And is charged with carrying a gun with intent to go armed. Turns out, his revocation was a mistake and he has to work extra hard to get his gun back.

Well, in a continuation on the theme of the bureaucracies continuing to screw things up, he’s had his handgun carry permit revoked for, and I am not making this up, that charge for carrying a gun with intent to go armed that was supposedly cleared up.

Some guys have no luck at all.

    This sort of stuff is to be expected when we beg for permission to exercise our rights.

    Call me a nutcase or whathaveyou, just an observation.

    Now do you feel like throwing that revolution switch?

    “Some guys have no luck at all.”

    Markie Marxist sez: “With just a little bit of help from us communists! Ha! Ha! We own this country! He must not have heard about the Heller decision. The right to keep and bear arms is now the crime of gun possession. It’s official – the US Supreme Court said so. Exercising the right to keep and bear arms means forfeiture of the right to keep and bear arms. All your guns are belong to us!”

    And just think, these are the people that will be running your health care soon enough.

    Hey, what did you expect when you let the government decide who got rights and who didn’t?

    This is not bad luck. It was designed into the system. This is what happens when you ask for permission.

    I am curious: do you carry a firearm without a government-issued permit/license, straightarrow (assuming you do not live in a state where permits/licenses are not issued)?

  7. straightarrow Says:

    I haven’t carried in a long time. But at one time for a period of many years, no matter where you saw me, you could safely bet I could reach a firearm without shifting my feet. I did not ask permission then, if I start to carry again I will not ask permission then, either. Much of that time was when it was illegal to carry almost everywhere.

    I live in a state that allows very restricted open carry, and much more liberal concealed carry. So, the options are available to me. However, I don’t ask permission to speak, write, or protect my home and loved ones. I will not. I will do what I think I should when I think I should when it is my right to do so.

    On this question, there is no doubt that it is my right. Words mean things. “Shall not be infringed” are some of my favorite words.

    I have been asked by an acquaintance who happens to be in law enforcement if that was a hill I was willing to die on. My answer was “Yes, it is also a hill I am willing to kill on.”

    Let me clarify one thing. No sane man wants to actually desperately need a gun, no sane man ever wants to harm another, no sane man would allow someone else to make him helpless because no man needs you helpless unless he has evil designs that he cannot accomplish against a man prepared to defend his life, loved ones, property, and rights.

    And no sane man makes an issue of being armed. If he does it properly nobody ever knows he is armed. No sane man allows himself to develop an overbearing or bullying attitude because he is armed, and in fact, should be much more tolerant of others so as to avoid conflict that could lead to tragedy or outright obscenity.

    Case in point, I was once set upon by three young men in Longview, Wa. who had already attacked and stomped three other construction workers on our project( one at a time). They hospitalized all of them. I was armed at the time. I never considered using the pistol, nor reaching for it, nor brandishing it to scare them. They made a mistake with me that they did not make with the other three. They let me see them coming.

    It turns out that they weren’t very good at what they did when surprise wasn’t on their side, so I just beat the hell out of them. Because a gun introduced into that situation could have ended the life of some stupid young man or men for no real good purpose as I never was in fear of being killed or seriously hurt. The price just would have been too high, for me as well as for them. They took the lesson they learned to heart and there were no more ambushes for the remainder of the job. All around a very satisfactory end to it all. Though I had some pretty good whiskey bruises on me and an ear that looked like a catcher’s mitt for a couple of weeks, it beat the Hell out of having to live with killing someone just for being stupid.

    Just got to add this. It might have helped when partway through that interminable 10 or 15 minutes I started laughing so hard tears rolled out of my eyes.

    I think they thought I might be crazy, but I couldn’t help it. You’ve never seen anything funnier than a 6′ 5″ tough guy scream like a girl before I even hurt him very much. The other two guys were taking a lot of punishment and not a peep out of them. Just struck me funny how he screamed. Still does.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
