Special Operations Surveillance Aircraft circling Richmond

Friday, January 17th, 2020

So, there’s going to be the lobby day in VA where 130K people are going to show up. And a USAF surveillance plane is circling the area. All coincidental, I’m sure.

More on the ATF at Richmond gun shows

Friday, May 5th, 2006

The NRA has a nice round up, including some letters given to those who were investigated (possibly illegally). You should read it all and contact your representatives. A taste: The BATFE representative failed, however, to fully answer far more serious concerns about the bureauís tactics, such as the strategies it used to target some gun […]

Richmond Gun Show ATF Hearings

Wednesday, February 15th, 2006

The Brady bunch says it’s OK to break the law if we’re going after those evil gun dealers and their evil gun shows. Actually, I made that up since the Brady presser says nothing about the fact the ATF violated the law during this alleged abuse. Go figure. They have to lie to win. Nothing […]

Pictures that contradict the narrative. What I Saw At Lobby Day In Richmond The Best ‘White Supremacist’ Minority Protests Someone showed up with a guillotine.

VA Lobby Day

Monday, January 20th, 2020

The rally went off without issue. Media hardest hit. Even when an alleged “infiltrator” tries to kick off the violence. A telling thing in the pictures here and here. Positive interactions with the police. Didn’t see any antifa guys doing that. Speaking of, sheriffs showed up to protest for the good guys. And so much […]

The NRA handed out 1,000 standard capacity P Mags: EMERGENCY AIRLIFT: @Magpul_HQ sent us 1,000 30 Round PMAGs to hand out tomorrow in Richmond to NRA members who show up to fight Northams extreme gun ban!

Don’t dig the rig but . . .

VA senator open carries to the chamber: The first-term senator a fan of government transparency and opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment said she wore the gun following an incident Monday in which Capitol Police were called after immigration-rights supporters confronted Sen. Dick Black, R-Loudoun. Chase said she always carries her gun in concealed fashion […]

Speaking of stupid technical gun laws

Monday, February 5th, 2018

This is pretty ridiculous: Zhao was arrested because he allegedly attached a 30-round magazine to a rifle. He was allowed to own both the gun and magazine, but when they were combined, the rifle qualified as an assault weapon prohibited to people with Zhaos visa status. Oh, Virginia, what has happened to you?

Today, in bad gun handling

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

French sharpshooter injures two after he negligently discharged his gun. He also shot himself in the foot. Sounds like a little too much booger-hook on the bang-switch. A VA lawmaker left his handgun unattended in a meeting room. As if that wasn’t bad enough, he also loses points for off body carry and not having […]

Because it was only about guilting lawful gun owners

Monday, January 30th, 2017

The Richmond Times Dispatch: A new state law designed to expand background checks at Virginia gun shows has resulted in only one person being denied the purchase of a weapon at 41 weekend events during the first six months of the initiative, which required $300,000 in funding to hire three new state police employees. Time, […]

You mean people don’t want to pay extra for government involvement?

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

Shocking news: Only 21 voluntary background checks performed on private gun sales so far at 23 Va. gun shows And this: Despite the low number of voluntary checks, Virginia Public Safety Secretary Brian J. Moran said in a statement that he was encouraged by the results and will continue to remain steadfast in educating Virginians […]

That’s why it must be mandatory!

Voluntary background checks not popular.

Firefighter who flunked physical requirement for job but got the job anyway: Probationary firefighter Choeurlyne Doirin-Holder injured herself Monday while conducting a routine check of equipment at Queens Engine 308 in South Richmond Hill. Getting off the truck, Doirin-Holder missed a step and landed on her left foot, suffering a fracture, sources said. It was […]

The decline of media

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Ok, two things: First, the Richmond Times Dispatch just fabricates out of whole cloth some new meaning to castle doctrine laws stating that it will let people shoot first and ask questions later. Second, I guess it’s hard times that the paper is publishing on tumblr?

Retaliation

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

A bit back, a tea party had their lawful protest and paid taxes on rights err permit fees. The city didn’t charge those fees to the Occupy Whatever folks. So, the Tea Part asked for a refund. Soon after, they get a notice they’re going to be audited.

Media Watch

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

Two stories that caught my eye. Richmond Times Dispatch criticizes the Violence Policy Center’s bogus statistics. And the Washington Times: In Oklahoma City the previous week, an armed citizen singlehandedly stopped an attack that surely would have resulted in a multiple-victim public shooting. The media gave the event scant attention. The scene went down when […]

Crazy idea

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008

Instead of passing all these gun controls, try aggressively prosecuting those that commit violent crimes with guns. Seems to work: By 2007, Richmond had dropped off the list of the top 25 most dangerous cities. This in a state with some of the most liberal gun ownership laws in the country.

Another gun case

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

Buried quietly at the bottom of this article on warrantless searches, I saw this: In the second case, the court will consider Randy Edward Hayes’ argument that the government was wrong to charge him with violating a federal law barring people convicted in domestic violence cases from possessing firearms. In 1994, Hayes pleaded guilty in […]

Gun Registration

Remember, they tell us it’s not a precursor to confiscation: A heavy afternoon rain blurs the sky as three black sport utility vehicles pull up across from a one-story stucco house on Pinole Valley Road. The man inside just turned 60 and recently was placed under a psychiatric hold as a suicide risk, says one […]

Record Numbers

Monday, February 4th, 2008

Seen at TP’s: The Brady’s crow “Virginia (01/21/2008): Record Numbers Attend Advocacy Day in Richmond” To bad for them that twice as many of our side showed up. Nowhere near “record numbers” for us.

Speaking of ATF troubles

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

I just listed some, but here’s another: The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives no longer routinely checks the addresses of some buyers at gun shows after being accused of slowing sales at a show in Richmond in 2005, the Justice Department reported yesterday. And your tax dollars at work: The U.S. attorney’s office […]

Webb says it was his gun

Monday, June 18th, 2007

Jim Webb’s staffer was arrested and detained for illegally having a gun in DC. There was question about whose gun it was: A senate staffer working for James Webb was busted trying to get a pistol into the senate building. It was the senatorís gun. I guess the senator was taking advantage of the recent […]

Times Dispatch: Airline officials told the two Richmond bounty hunters it was OK to bring their weapons aboard. Then, they had the two arrested. Now, an Arizona jury has told Southwest Airlines to pay Thomas Hudgins and Leroy DeVore a total of $9 million in damages. More: They checked with airline officials over the phone, […]

The lies they tell

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006

Pennsylvania is becoming the center of the gun control debate. Seems the antis are pushing their wares non-stop there: Pennsylvania lawmakers held a special session on Tuesday to discuss 94 initiatives to tighten the state’s relatively loose gun controls in an effort to reduce gun crime. The two-day meeting was attended by the mayors of […]
