The Usual Suspects claim the AR-15 is rarely used as a defensive weapon

AR-15 Used To Repel Home Invasion, 30 Rounds Fired
The three home invaders claimed to be sheriff's deputies and kicked in the front door. One of the bad guys fired his weapon. Two of the residents responded with an AR-15 and a handgun striking the three home invaders. The bad guys fell to the floor and the residents retreated to a bedroom and called the police. The good guys were unharmed. the Score for the bad guys was one dead and two wounded. To the Usual Suspects: the AR is a perfect defensive weapon and you lie.

The Demons of Paris, by Eric Flint, Paula Goodlett, Gorg Huff

Honestly, with some of these collaborations I'm not sure how much Eric Flint actual has to do with them. This isn't a 1632 novel but the premise is similar in that a group of modern teenagers and their teacher finds them selves thrown back in time, 14th Century France, and adventures ensue. The twist is the transfer takes place when during the summoning of a demon to assist in the search for a serial murderer. It didn't really grab me. The story is slow paced. It was boring. Thus the question about how much Flint had to do with the actual writing of this book. He 's done better. Heck, his collaborators have done better.

Monster Hunter Memoirs: Saints by Larry Correia and John Ringo

There is nothing boring about this book. Standard Ringo. I traded off sitting on the edge of my seat with laughing my ass off. The plot? Chad saves the world more or less and that's all you need to know before you read it. I don't know that we will get more from Ringo but I can hope. Highly recommended.

Seriously?

A Parkland survivor went to the range with his father and posted on Facebook pictures of him shooting a gun. He returned to school to harassment by the school resource officers.
Then a third officer from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office walked in, and began asking me the same questions again. At that point, I asked whether I could record the interview. They said no. I asked if I had done anything wrong. Again, they answered no. I asked why I was there. One said, “Don’t get snappy with me, do you not remember what happened here a few months ago?”
He seems to be a respectful well behaved young man. I can almost see him biting his tongue to keep from saying "watching my friends die while your co-workers sat on their asses outside." Since he is a respectful well behaved young man, he didn't.

Donate...

...to a good cause.

A young lady came to the aid of a law enforcement officer who was in a struggle for his life against a suspect trying to get his gun. She shot the suspect. He later dies. She was cleared of wrongdoing by the local District Attorney, and now she and the Officer are being sued. The officer's Department will cover his legal expenses. She is on her own and needs help. You can help by donating whatever you can here.

This case is about more than the right or wrong of one party suing another. Imagine not being able to come to the aid of another person for fear of being sued, possibly to the point of bankruptcy. The case is about a person having the basic God-given right and the 2nd Amendment right to defend both yourself and others and without the fear of civil retribution.

Perhaps the worst choice we make, is not to protect our family, ourselves, or others when confronted with life threatening situations when we clearly have the power to do so.

The person in harm’s way needs to have faith that someone may come to their rescue in that moment of extreme need without fear of retribution.

7 Forces Driving America Toward Civil War

7) Gun Grabbing: Liberals have fallen in love with the idea of ignoring the 2nd Amendment and confiscating all firearms. The logistics of doing this in a nation with hundreds of millions of guns (many of which are off the books) when many police departments and tens of millions of Americans would not cooperate is seldom discussed. Another thing that seldom seems brought up is that large numbers of conservatives would see this as a prelude to the government’s use of force against the citizenry. When it is discussed on the Left, there seems to be an assumption that lone resisters might get into firefights with dozens of police or soldiers, as opposed to ganging up with other formerly law-abiding Americans to waylay gun confiscators, politicians and anti-gun activists at THEIR HOMES in guerrilla actions that would be silently applauded and supported by hundreds of millions of Americans concerned about their freedom. Confiscating guns is a dangerous and stupid idea that could in and of itself end our republic if a serious attempt were ever made to implement it.

Be Specific

I saw this comment to a tweet posted at the Say Uncle blog.
If we elect a new congress and we pass laws making gun ownership illegal for people like you, and the government comes to take your guns, what will you do?
What will you do? Be specific.
The question isn't what gun owners will do. The question is what you will do if only one percent of this country's 75,000,000 gun owners* tell you and your masters to shove it? Be specific.



*That number is based on numbers from 2013's General Social Survey and Gallup. I think the number is much higher. The survey assumes a gun owner is stupid enough to even answer the questions. I wouldn't. Why? Because of e. nitwits like Mr. "Be Specific" and politicians who piss on the Constitution every time they get a twinge.

For Your Information

DATE: April 20, 2018
TO: USF & NRA Member and Friends
FROM: Marion P. Hammer
USF Executive Director
NRA Past President

For years YETI Coolers have been a hot item for sportsmen at the Friends of NRA Foundation Banquet and Auction events around the country.

These Foundation events raise money to support youth programs and educational programs nationwide. The youth of America who benefit from these programs are the future hunters, hikers, fishermen/women, bikers, campers, wildlife photographers, mountain climbers, sportsmen/women and conservationists who will protect our natural resources and recreational lands.

Suddenly, without prior notice, YETI has declined to do business with The NRA Foundation saying they no longer wish to be an NRA vendor, and refused to say why. They will only say they will no longer sell products to The NRA Foundation. That certainly isn’t sportsmanlike. In fact, YETI should be ashamed. They have declined to continue helping America’s young people enjoy outdoor recreational activities. These activities enable them to appreciate America and enjoy our natural resources with wholesome and healthy outdoor recreational and educational programs.

The NRA Foundation is 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization.

In this day and age, information is power. We thought you needed this information.

Levon's War by Chuck Dixon

This seems like a wrap up for Dixon's Levon series. If so, I'm OK with that. Here, Levon made a promise when he was deployed to Iraq and now he return's to keep it. Dixon's prose in these novels strikes me as sparse but it works for this story. Read the series. It's well worth your time.

Though Hell Should Bar the Way by David Drake.

The latest of Drake's Lt. Leary series is as good as anything Drake has written before. This time Leary and Mundy aren't the central characters. Here Leary takes a former RNC cadet, forced to resign because of his father's crimes, under his wing. The cadet is the central character and the story is told in the first person. I w on't get into plot in that I don't want to ruin it for anyone who might pick it up, but it's good. In fact, I'd say I like this entry into the series more than any of the previous volumes. It's good stuff and highly recommended, but then, it's Drake.

Accidental Warrior by Colin Alexander

Every once in a while I just pull up Amazon and look for new authors and something new that might grab me. The synopsis for Alexander's novel reminded me of H. Beam Piper's "He Walked Around The Horses". Why?  A College Freshman seeking shelter in a storm suddenly finds himself in an alternate North America three hundred years after it was settled by royals fleeing a devastating European plague. So, no United States. No industrial revolution.  just a hodge podge of small  sovereign nations always on the edge of war. Into this is dropped, our American teen. What does not kill him makes him stronger, and he grows into the adult he wasn't.

It did grab me, and it was three dollars well spent. Good story. Well drawn characters. Good action sequences. I liked it and look forward to more. Highly recommended.

Two guys break into a house...

...and use a screwdriver to attack the homeowner. The homeowner defends himself with a knife and kills one of the intruders. Guess who gets arrested for homicide? In Great Britain, the homeowner.
Pictured: The pensioner, 78, arrested on suspicion of MURDER after 'stabbing armed burglar, 38, to death in struggle in his kitchen' when two intruders woke him as he slept next to his wife
Not the first time.

This kind of shit is what we in America can look forward to if David Hogg and the Parkland children and the big money backing them get their way.

I cite those celebrity assaults not because celebrities are more prone to wind up as crime victims than anyone else, but only because the measure of a civilized society is how easily you can insulate yourself from its snarling underclass. In America, if you can make it out of some of the loonier cities, it’s a piece of cake, relatively speaking. In Britain, if even a rock star or TV supremo can’t insulate himself, nobody can. In any society, criminals prey on the weak and vulnerable. It’s the peculiar genius of government policy to have ensured that in British society everyone is weak and vulnerable –from Norfolk farmers to Tom Cruise’s neighbor.

And that’s where America is headed if those million marching moms make any headway in Washington: Less guns = more crime. And more vulnerability. And a million more moms being burgled, and assaulted, and raped. I like hunting, but if that were the only thing at stake with guns, I guess I could learn to live without it. But I’m opposed to gun control because I don’t see why my neighbors in New Hampshire should have to live the way, say, my sister-in-law does–in a comfortable manor house in a prosperous part of rural England, lying awake at night listening to yobbo gangs drive up, park their vans, and test her doors and windows before figuring out that the little old lady down the lane’s a softer touch.

Children with Opinions

And back to the earlier point. Gun control's only philosophical argument is waving the bloody shirt. There are literally zero facts to support the claims, when any objective study is done. In fact, four of the most widely cited sources against gun control all started out in support, and changed their minds based on facts. (Wright, Rossi, Kleck, Lott)

So then the bleat is, "Who are you going to believe? Some researcher with an "Agenda"(Because obviously, there's zero agenda to taking weapons away from people), or the kids who were at the shooting?

Well, that's easy. It doesn't matter what a Tide Pod eater thinks. Especially when the ones being genuflected before weren't even at the shooting, they were in a completely different building. That's like saying. "I wasn't in combat, but I was on the base near where it happened and I talked to a bunch of shooters, so my opinion on what rifle to use is important!"

No, not really. Science matters. Opinion from a glory seeker who wants CNN coverage is not.

Those two narcissistic twits from Florida, one of whom admitted to being part of a group who bullied the shooter mercilessly, are utterly irrelevant on the subject of firearms.

And only a complete idiot even bothers to acknowledge they exist, much less waste any time listening to them. - Michael Z. Williamson
