Looks like self defense to me.

In Edmonds, Washington early Thanksgiving morning a mother was awakened by someone pounding on the front door. She call 911 then took her pistol and went to investigate. She found a young man at the front door. He tried to force his way inside and she shot him. He is is currently being treated at a local hospital, and the matter is under investigation.

H/T to Dave.

Quote of the Day

And these illegal aliens are willing to do the work that Americans will no longer do — namely, vote Democrat. - Howie Carr


That's the frickin' problem with the GOP*. They're afraid the Dems and their media lickspittles will call them mean.

*...and they're more interested in maintaining power than doing the Right thing and when you really think about it they're just as statist as the DEMS and they believe they know how to spend your money better than you and they're really the little socialist party of the U. S. A. rather than the big one and...

Zero Tolerance

What "Educators" do instead of think.
Milford fifth-grader punished over pretend gun
It's no wonder our school systems are in the sad shape they're in with guys like this running the show.

It's what they do.

Cherry pick the data or lie.
Problems with the Washington Post’s and Huffington Post’s “more guns, more crime” claims
It's the same thing either way. Doing it for a cause don't make it right.

There was this poll on executive amnesty by NBC...

...and it looks like ain't nobody happy with the President's threatened action. Do ya get the feeling that the Evil Party is driving the bus full throttle toward the abyss with El Presidente at the wheel? Now if only the Stupid Party will get the hell out of the way.


Key issues report and Giuliani endorsement add to gun owner concerns with Lynch

As for actions on guns, determining Lynch’s sympathies is indirect, but nonetheless not too hard to divine. She supported anti-gun Hillary Clinton, and then anti-gun Obama in their bids for political power. Earlier, she had supported David Dinkins for Mayor of New York, helping enable his lookalike “assault weapon” ban. And speaking of former Big Apple mayors, Rudy Giuliani, naturally described by “progressive” publications as a “staunch Republican,” gives her a thumbs-up.
Nothing surprising here. Obama isn't going to nominate anyone any different than Eric Holder. That in itself should give gun owners reason enough to oppose her nomination. People are also known by the company you keep. The company Lynch keeps place her the likes of prohibitionists like Obama and Holder. That's reason enough to oppose her nomination.

The likelihood of the establishment GOP providing any real opposition is little to none. Just saying...

This is what I do know. They won't do squat if you if gun owners don't let you Senators know where you stand. The same is true of the NRA. you sit this one out and gun owners lose. So, write, email, call your representatives. Call, email, write the NRA leadership. Let 'em know how you feel.

No Bias Here

Media covering up Bloomberg hand behind Nevada background check group
Nevadans for Background Checks is a front group for Everytown which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg. They are not grassroots. They are astroturf but the media outlets either ignore it or bury in the story hoping people won't notice. Lies by omission are still lies.

More Prohibitionist Bulls*#t

Director Jessica Solce's new documentary, No Control, premieres November 15 and carries a clear message: "There [are] limits to every right... articulated in the Constitution," and gun rights should be no exception.
I believe the Supreme Court placed the limit on our right to free speech at the equivalent to yelling fire in a crowded theater. So it would seem to me that any limits on my Second Amendment rights should be the equivalent. Right? Say I can't take another human life except in defense of my life or that of another. Outside of that limitation I should be able to do what I damn well please with my property as long as my actions don't harm another or their property. Right?

Instead I have to undergo a background check [a NICS check at the very least] to purchase a firearm. There are limits on the types of firearms I can own. There are limits on who can purchase a firearm. There are limits on where I can carry a firearm. There are multiple intrusions on my Second Amendment rights at the local, State, and National level. Those intrusions are called limitations Ms. Solce. The fact is the shear number of regulations and limitations on a my right to bear arms would send a you and other Leftists into a screaming shit fit if that same level of regulation was placed on the rights you hold precious.

Gun rights already have an insane level of regulation on them but that is not enough for you and other prohibitionists because limitation isn't your goal. Abolition is.

Next on Bloomberg's agenda...

One-Percenters Aiming For Universal Background Check Initiative In Nevada
As much as we like to make fun of Bloomberg and gloried in his earlier defeats, he's not a stupid man and we ignore him at our own risk. We can't match what Bloomberg and his fellow billionaires are willing to spend. I'm not sure what the solution is other than support your local gun rights groups and the NRA and GOA with your time and money. Anyway, both John and Sebastian have thoughts on the matter.

A win, of sorts.

The Ninth Circuit and the right to carry guns: Good-bye Peruta, hello Richards and Baker
The title pretty much says it all. The Court told Cali AG Harris and the Brady Bunch they couldn't intervene in order to petition for a rehearing on the case. That's good, but a couple of other cases are in the queue dealing with the same issues. This is the Ninth Circuit. God only knows the outcome. Nobody else does/

Oh Really!

"The Second Amendment Was For When The British Were Coming"
So DC has this new concealed carry law that makes it impossible to actually get a permit. The need for 18 hours of training that doesn't yet exist is, I'm sure, only one of the many roadblocks that exist in the law. The biggest is that it's "may issue" and I can't see the DC Police Chief giving anyone the OK unless forced to.

Another law suit is in order and it sounds like Alan Gura already has it in the works.

It's kinda funny sometimes how quickly the tables turn.

Went the day well?
We died and never knew.
But, well or ill,
Freedom, we died for you.

John Maxwell Edmonds (1875 - 1958)


Yesterday afternoon I went into the house's crawlspace in search of a leak and found a pinhole in a copper pipe. No problem to fix. Well, it shouldn't have been. By the time I finished today around two o'clock I'd repaired the pipe, the well tank's pressure gauge, the water filter, and replaced the hot water heater. Even after all that and the time involved, I'm still glad I didn't call a plumber. Time I got plenty of. Money I don't.

Uh Huh

After Harry Reid, the GOP Shouldn’t Unilaterally Disarm
I've hopes that the GOP will exhibit a backbone, but past experience being what it is...

So much for the claim that “Nine out of 10 Americans support [expanded] background checks”

With what may turn out to be a 50-to-1 spending advantage ($9.5 million to what appears to be a couple hundred thousand ($1.7 million was spent on another gun initiative)), the initiative passed with just less than 60 percent of the vote. What this vote implies is that even under ideal circumstances with a massive campaign spending advantage and picking a liberal state where they thought that they would do well, slightly less than 60 percent of the voters supported the initiative.
Unfortunately, all they need is 51% to get their money's worth.

A suggestion for the Stupid Party

If voters really wanted people who would work closely with Obama and other Democrats to “get things done,” they would have just voted for more Democrats.
I could give a crap less if things get done if it's the wrong things getting done.

Fixed it for you.

A seven-year-old girl has been injured after a police firearms expert accidentally negligently discharged a gun during a demonstration.
The discharge of a weapon requires the interaction of a finger and a trigger. Keep your bloody finger off the trigger and the firearm won't discharge. NOT an accident.

Smells like BS to me

Mom Claims To Have Found Ammunition In Her Preschooler’s Halloween Candy
She claims to have found four Milk Dud boxes containing .22 rounds in her kid's treat bag. Kid got said treat bag at his/her preschool. No body else reported their kids getting any .22 rounds and boy are the other parents pissed. You know how hard it is to come by that stuff lately?

Like I said...bullshit.

A Second Helping of Schadenfreude

The Morning After...

So are we any better off today than yesterday?

Looks like the margin of fraud will keep Malloy and Hickenlooper in office. The Billionaires won in Washington State, but we already knew that money can buy elections as long as it's enough money. I'm sure Bloomberg learned a lot from his fellows in Washington State. My question is how much of their money are they willing to part with. At least anti-gun Brown was kicked to the curb in Maryland of all places.

Republicans took the Senate. This is a mixed blessing at best. They'll screw us in a heartbeat the moment they think they don't need us any more. Wait, let me rephrase that..."the moment they don't fear us any more." Remember these are establishment Republicans. They suffer from the "I know better than you do" delusion of their Democrat Progressive brethren.

I worry the question isn't whether we'll be fucked but when.
