Reason # Infinity to carry a gun – Crazy people. (Also – Don’t go Full Hero during a Mass Shooting.)

‘Carry at All Times’: Video of Random Woman Stabbing Boy in Front of Parents Shocks Gun Owners

First off – You need to watch this video.

Second off – The title is wrong, this should shock everyone, and if you love your family, you should be concealed carrying anyways.

Historically speaking, the world has always been full of vile, evil, crazy people willing to inflict pain and hurt on others. And just because we’ve got indoor plumbing doesn’t mean that thing’s ain’t changed none. There’s only a thin veneer of civility on top of society, and it could be argued that’s been weakened with the current state of vitrol amongst our politics, the pathetic shape of our mental health institutions, the lack of father figures in homes, and the influence of social media.

But if you are carrying a firearm, you could have done something other than flail about pathetically like the child’s father in the video.

You could have shot her during the confrontation or you could have tried to detain her afterwards.

Personally, I’m not above shooting her in the back as she’s walking away. If that gets me arrested, I’ll smile for my mug shot. But I’m not about to let someone walk away after stabbing my kids.

But I’ve always been the sort to figure, if they’re willing to do this to me and my kids, when will they stop?

Answer – when they’re incapacitated.

Now, comparing this to the mass shooting that just happened in Texas on how a concealed carry holder should act…

I read this recently at Survival Blog and found it to ring true.

Some Counter-Mass Shooting Wisdom

SurvivalBlog’s Editor-At-Large Michael Z. Williamson chimed in with this letter that he received from a friend who is a former SADF trooper, in South Africa:

“Handguns are better than bare fists but that’s about it. Shooting it out with someone who is armed with a carbine sucks beyond belief. I speak for experience since, unlike a whole pile of the Internet blowhards, I’ve actually done it. As have numerous cops in other [bad places]. Ask any of them if a pistol would be their first choice if they had to do it again.

Having said that, the problem with long guns is how are you going to carry it? Go back to your vehicle and fetch it? Not going to work in reality. Carry it around in a bag or under a coat? Statistically it’s probably not worth the trouble.

As to the little Suarez gem about being seen as an accomplice if you are armed with a rifle (Obviously you should be armed with one of his red dot pistols because of wallet mining) that’s BS. The cops have been given a report of an active shooter. Anyone waving a weapon around be it a rifle, shotgun or a sidearm is going to be seen as a possible suspect and treated as such. Why? Because plenty of other weapons are used by active shooters.

A lot of police work is a game of imperfect information. Even if the report said man with a rifle, no cop in his right [expletive] mind is going to go “Oh look a guy with a pistol he must be a CCwer and I can safely ignore him, in-fact I can safely expect him to help”, to do so would be folly.

And as to the re-conceal bit. That may take timing you don’t have. I know the latest fantasy of the red dot “offensive pistol” crowd is that they will snipe the [bad guy] across the mall with their awesome skills. Maybe they will, but maybe they won’t. Bad guys don’t want to die either. If the shot is less than perfect, there are more than one shooters (remember you are also playing a game of imperfect info) or anything else aside from what you hope for you will attract fire and maybe get into a protracted firefight. At that point there is no more concealing after taking care of business.

In South Africa, during a cash in transit heist, an armed private citizen engaged the robbers with his pistol killing one. Problem was he engaged them from behind the cover of a car. Why is that a problem you ask? Because it was a car with one of them in it, assumedly a getaway vehicle. The occupant simply got out and blew the good Samaritan’s brains out. Remember it’s a game of imperfect info! A single private individual has even less of it that cops with radios and such.

Personally, I would not directly engage, unless I was in the perpetrator’s immediate vicinity or immediately threatened by an identifiable threat, some of those are better off eliminated proactively. Given the option, I would take my spouse and or family members, seek hard cover and the safety of a defensible position and wait for a decent opportunity. If the active shooter goes Mumbai style and comes looking for more targets that’s when you take the [hostile] out.

I realize that’s not being “sheepdogish” and such. But if you want to go full [hero] and charge on the sound of the guns, to die a good death then go for it. I guess someone else will look after your family and the people you saved families won’t be giving a [care] either. Life is hard, simple as that. Your immediate duty is to you and yours, [expletive] the rest. Of course its different if you are responsible for more people’s lives, for whatever reason, but most normal, family people are not.

As I’ve said before most people are not trained to clear a house, let’s not even talk about waging urban warfare in a [expletive] Shopping Mall.”

 

Stay safe friends. Practice shooting often and write diligently. 🙂

 

We should be air lifting guns and ammunition into Hong Kong.

First rule in Democracy – Never, ever, EVER, give anything or anyone to the Communists. British PM Margaret Thatcher really screwed up when she gave Hong Kong back to China. You are giving people to evil. That is subjecting them to tyranny.

Second rule in Democracy – When someone wants freedom, when someone is willing to stand for freedom, to beg and plead for it, to risk their lives for it, then they deserve it. It’s downright chilling to watch Hong Kong protesters flying our flag, singing OUR anthem, and begging for our help to stave off the mainland Chinese Communists. This ain’t a bunch of middle easterners who hate us, our way of life, and our involvement in their politics. This is a bunch of people who’ve retained a small amount of their freedoms from Britain rule and are bound and determined to keep them and they are begging for our help.

Third rule in Democracy – The spread of globalism should always be neutered when possible. We should be building our military up in preparations of the defense for Hong Kong.  In the meantime, we should be air lifting pallets of rifles, PMags, and ammunition into that city to give the protesters (who are now being labeled ‘terrorists) a chance to not go silently into the night. Thousands of ironically named communist ‘Peoples Liberation Army‘  troops, vehicles, and equipment are already being staged!

If they invade it will be a massacre of biblical proportions.

We should be praying, arming them, and preparing to come to their defense.

So Epstein ‘offs himself’ eh?

I don’t think we can even jokingly call this a conspiracy anymore. It seems more and more to be a murder of sorts.

Well….

Is it murder if you kill a pedophile?

Or is it simply a clean up on aisle four?

Anyways, I digress.

Here’s what we know.

  1. He seemed intent on living when he spoke to his lawyer last. (Surely this guy hoped to make a deal considering the people he knew?)
  2. Both guards were asleep for three hours, instead of checking on him every thirty minutes as required. (BOTH? Sleep over, Cell Block A)
  3. Prison records were falsified by same guards.
  4. His cellmate was moved, which allowed Epstein to be housed alone, which violated the jails procedures.
  5. Shrieks were heard from other inmates coming from his direction.
  6. He ‘strangled’ himself by kneeling with a noose made of bed sheets. (Not in a ‘kick out the chair from under me, no backing out now!’ method, but a ‘I’m going to keep self-choking myself until I pass out and die’ method.)
  7. He had multiple broken bones in his neck that are sometimes found with strangulation homicide victims.
  8. The cameras weren’t working. (Gee – really?)

Ain’t all that just convenient?

Now, maybe no one actively murdered him. Maybe they simply removed him from suicide watch and waited for nature to run its course. Or, maybe someone slipped in and actively offed the guy to make it look like suicide.

Either way – No big loss to society.

Except that with him dies lists of names of people who should also be hung. And it’s a shame we won’t get to see those folks kicking and twitching anytime soon.

I just received my first FB Achievement medal!

By being tagged for ‘hate speech’…

Generally speaking, I don’t post about politics on FB much anymore. Or on this blog.

Honestly, it’s because I’m tired of the division and tired of Trump’s winning. I’m also tired of arguing with people who are frothing crazy and irrational and driven by hatred for Trump. Look, you can have your own beliefs, that’s fine. But as a human being, you owe it to yourselves to educate yourself, to challenge your beliefs, and correct them as you discover grow, learn, and discover facts and reasoning’s.

And I’m not saying, “Oooo, Republicans are always right and Democrats always wrong!”

Not true. Republicans suck also. As I mentioned in my last post, read the comments sometime in a Fox News article – it’s cringe worthy to read what ‘my’ people have on their minds. And there are plenty of wimpy Republicans who support gun control, abortion, high taxes, etc. Such as John McCain. He was terrible and I wrote about that when he died.

But the reason I posted that comment to FB is because every single Democrat at the Presidential debate with a podium denounced Trump as a racist every chance they got.

Which means all 63,000,000 voters who supported Trump are racist as well by default.

Correct?

Either we are racist and support his racism, or we are tens of millions of ignorant fools who unknowingly elected such an evil man, and you folks are the shining beacons of all that is good and just in the world here to enlighten us and offer trinkets and other free things…

Which is it? We’re stupid? Or racist white supremacists as well?

Either way, you want our votes.

So, I think my statement is pretty accurate.

Trumps rhetoric doesn’t incite me to violence.

But the leftists call for banning firearms and confiscating them by force surely does.

#YoureADaisyIfYouDo

That aside, the fact of the matter is, mass shooters are evil scumbags. Both sides of the political spectrum have whack jobs waiting to fall from the crazy tree. No one side has a monopoly on bat-poop insane dirt bags.

If you doubt me, and you’re a conservative/libertarian like me, read the comments on a Fox News articles sometime. It’s every bit as frothing insane as the comments on a CNN article bashing people on the right.

The difference with mass killers now, compared to the past, is that these scumbags are more aware of how to play a biased media and divided country by ‘playing the part’ by simply following certain people on social media, posting conflicting statements, and knowing that their actions will be scrutinized and nitpicked by douche nozzles looking to score political points or push an agenda.

And if you’re one of these political hacks who breathlessly awaits the announcement of a shooters race or victim’s race/political identity so you can pounce on the ‘DESTROY THE NRA!’ bandwagon… or conversely, the ‘LIBTARDS R THE WORST!’  you all suck. You’re part of the problem. You play right into the hands of the killer who seeks to not only kill but sow discord and discontent.

Stop being stupid.

And for those of you who think confiscating firearms are the solution, and there’s a lot of people out there who want to do it by force.. people who literally want to have police kill me because I own firearms… you’re a bunch of clowns and you’re going to get good people killed. I feel like I’ve argued against gun control my entire adult life, and I’ve grown bored and tired of it. Simply  put – numerically, if you confiscate 99% of the 400,000,000 firearms in the U.S, you’re still going to have 4 MILLION guns in the hands of some very pissed off people.

So maybe we should find real solutions.

Like much more mental health services, fixing society’s self-centered/glamour/social media fame complex, bringing fathers back into their kids homes, and bringing God back into the center of American life.
