It's what they do.


In Washington State...

Supporters of I-594 claim 80% of prison inmates obtained guns through private transfers, but according to the U.S. Department of Justice statistics from 1993-2011 and again in 2013, 77% got them through “fencing, drug dealers, burglary, or other on-the-street illegal black-market operations.” Opponents say this law won’t have any effect on criminals getting guns.
You'll notice here that the prohibitionists provide a statistic to prove their case but neglect to provide details that would show their statistic is utter bullshit. Like I said, they lie. Here it is by omission.

The other issue here is we have billionaires supporting gun control with large cash donations. Billionaires that have no need to own a personal weapon for self-defense because they have protective details armed to the teeth. Gun control is for the little people. Hypocrisy is for the rich.

Surprised it hadn't happened sooner.

'Cops' crew member dies after being shot by police officer who was aiming at robber during filming of reality show
And oh the lawsuits we'll see. Any Police Chief who lets a reality show film his officers during shift gets what he deserves.

A Kangaroo Court

There's a simple solution to this problem.

NYPD brass to cops: Stop using Kahr K-9 semi-automatic pistol as an off-duty gun
TRAIN your officers to keep their damn finger off the trigger until they're ready to shoot. OK it is NYC. Maybe it's not so simple.

That's what I got for you.

In Luzerne County PA, two thugs tried to rob a guy.
One suspect pointed a gun at the victim and said, “What do you got for me?"
The victim knocked the thug's gun aside and showed him his own semi-automatic pistol. The thugs ran.

This is what gun control...

...will do for your state.

Police and "military style weapons".

NYT poll: 65% of whites, 80% of blacks say police shouldn’t have military-style weapons
The issue I have with militarization of the police isn't with the toys they have with one exception which I'll get to in a bit. The problem is the police are paramilitary organizations and too many emphasize the military rather than the para. Police officers call the people they serve civilians like they themselves aren't. They see themselves as better than the people the serve. That's the core problem with this militarization of the police. I have no problem with law enforcement using armored vehicles to provide cover for officers during a riot. Same for semi-automatic rifles, military grade body armor, or helmets.

I do have a problem when departments use SWAT teams armed with these items to serve search warrants that are no more high risk than crossing the street. The problem isn't the equipment the local police have. It's the attitude that comes with it, and that's the militarization of which we need to be wary.

Which brings me to that exception I spoke of earlier. I DO have a problem with police having automatic and/or select fire weapons when the local population can't or they are so regulated that it is next to impossible for us "civilians" to get them. If I can't have a magazine that holds more than ten rounds they don't need them. If they need some item to defend themselves then an argument can be made that the "civilian" population needs them as well. Whatever regulation I'm subjected to should apply to the police as well, because they aren't above us. They are us.

Now THAT'S funny.

Not so much the picture as this headline.

If ISIS Beheaded A Golf Club Obama Would Bomb Their Ass Into Oblivion


It's what they do.

They lie.

Media Matters, a fully owned subsidiary of the Democrat Party and the progressive cause, says Bloomberg doesn't want to ban your guns because, well, he says so. They ignore his actions which say otherwise. That ignorance is purposeful and so a lie. No matter.  No one outside the Left's True Believers pays them the slightest attention anyway.
