Unicorn Farts and Gumdrop Turds

We should ban guns because I don't like them. Then the world will be perfect.

*sigh*

Of course, that's why we win.

UPDATE: Reasoned Discourse strikes. Such strong convictions in their beliefs.

Violent Criminals Welcome; Gun Owners Need Not Apply

Just to show you how deranged gun control advocates are when it comes to firearms, take a look at the hypocrisy they show when it comes to ACTUAL criminals.

Now remember, these groups want firearm owners to be treated the same as violent criminals and sex offenders w/ registration, publicly available lists of ownership, warrantless police searches of homes, entered in medical records, etc. just to name a few ideas they promote.

But when it comes to those who HAVE broken the law, those who HAVE already shown they are or have been incapable of following society's norms, they should be treated w/ kid gloves so it can be 'fair'.

We see whose side they're on.

Anti-Gun Lobby AstroTurf Update

The Joyce Foundation Puppet New England Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership isn't content to run just one astroturf blog. Or even two. But THREE blogs* trying to smear firearm owners.

This is outside of their official blog and homepage which haven't been updated in over a year.

Info updated on Anti-Gun Primer page.

Brady Campaign Targetting IL Rep. Dold (IL-10)

They plan to dump $30K into an ad campaign (including their silly commercial) to try and get him to support a magazine ban.

Contact Rep. Dold and (politely) tell him the Brady Campaign does not represent the public.

Scheduling Fail

The weekend of Sep. 23-25th is the Second Amendment Foundation's Gun Rights Policy Conference and ISRA Annual Meeting in Chicago. (Combined)

The NRA is hosting a 'Club University' Sep. 24th. In Chicago.

And there's a whole mess of Events and Shows that weekend scattered throughout the state.

What to do? What to do?

I'm planning on attending the GRPC/AM w/ camera and netbook in hand.

My Organization is Better Than Your Organization

Sebastian and Lyle have opened up the proverbial can of worms over the history of the NRA and some manufacturers allegedly supporting federal gun laws in the past.

Well we know that there have been quite a few screw-ups over the years. Smith & Wesson tried to get a monopoly by signing on to Clinton era gun control. The NRA initially tried to derail Heller over the fact that the court as it stood when it all got started wasn't a definitive winner. Etc.

Yeah, most of them have screwed up at one point or another. So what do we do? Do we Zumbo every group/company that we disagree w/? Do we keep sending money/buying product if we disagree w/ them?

I personally spread the wealth around as much as possible. I'm a life member of both the NRA and SAF and an annual or more of the Illinois State Rifle Assoc. and Champaign Cnty. Rifle Assoc. I've had my issues w/ all of them and I let them know it when I do. If they don't listen, I put more of my support, both money and activity, to the others but it would take a lot for me to cut them out entirely. There are some groups I admit I won't even waste blog space on mentioning.

As for firearm manufacturers, I buy what I like. So far that hasn't come into conflict w/ politics or activism but one who openly works against my interests I will not buy from again w/o some rough music.

Whatever you choose to do, let it be useful. Don't just whine and kvetch about what a bad job "X" is doing. Go join/support another group and/or company and tell the ones you disagree w/ WHY, not just "You suck" or similar such comments that make you look like a fool. Then go out and keep up the activism. If you sit on your rear and let the groups do all the work, then don't complain about what you get.

Authorized Journalists in Action

WBBM CBS Chicago selectively edits a video to make a 4yr old out to be a future gang-banger. Watch the video to see what the boy really said.

This is how the media creates stories and controversy to generate ratings.

This Is The Gov't and Laws They Chose..

Games organisers and City Hall fear a backlash from the anti-gun lobby.
This is the result of the majority of English subjects choosing to restrict firearms. This is the result of listening to anti-gun fear mongering and hysterics. This is what they chose.

And this is why I'm a life member of the NRA and SAF and a member of the ISRA and CCRA.

International Support for US Gun Control

While the CSGV is tweeting over and over about the NRA's telemarketing calls regarding the UN Anti-Gun Treaty, IANSA is hosting 'gun violence reports' from US gun control groups that aren't even listed as members.

How many other groups are they directly or indirectly supporting?

But remember, it's all just conspiracy theories. No-one's really after your guns.

Brady Campaign Endorses Modern 'Black Codes'

In an effort to reduce firearm ownership, the Brady Campaign has endorsed 'intelligence tests' for licensing an enumerated right.

Yeah. That's been tried before.
