news potpourri

I have an accumulation of interesting articles and links that just have not been given the time and attention to become complete posts here. It is time for some house-cleaning of those links before they get old. Here is the down payment on that project. More later. TTFN ———————————————————————————— FEINSTEIN ASSAULT WEAPON BAN OF 2019 [EXPLAINED] This horrible harpy is back with her favorite project: preventing honorable people from defending themselves from dishonorable, totalitarian governments. The Armalite Rifle platform (AR-15, AR-10) is now far and away the most popular design in the USofA with hundreds of producers offering every quality and option anyone could imagine. Interestingly, its use in crime is almost unheard of; statistically near zero. Protecting us is […]

left hook

The Sandy Hook school shooting hoax was, and still is used as a reason, an excuse to take firearms away from us. We need to solidly understand that the shooting story is and always was fiction, and such flimsy fiction as to be easily shot full of holes. A few things came my way recently that relate. I share this fresh-to-me information here. For one, the startling resemblance of the supposed shooter and the “kid” who became a national spokesman for gun control after the staged, fake school shooting in Broward County Florida … yeah, THAT Broward County. A few years older, but the same guy. Are there really so few sold-out actors they have to keep re-using them? Apparently […]

FBI Data Shows Armed Citizens Have 94% Success Rate Stopping Would-Be Mass Shooters Photo by Alien Gear Holsters. As the nation mourns the latest tragedy in “gun free zone” Chicago, a recent report compiled by Jacob Paulsen at ConcealedCarry.com shows that armed citizens facing possible mass shooters are able to stop the potential massacre 94% of the time. Paulsen’s study is inspired by John Lott’s consistent analysis of crime and gun laws.   While sourcing data from the FBI and giving a prefrace, Paulsen reports on ConcealedCarry.com: We thought it would be interesting to see if the overall percentage of events at which an armed citizen was present was increasing given the rise in concealed carry permit holders and gun owners nationwide. The data set is […]

smokin’ Feinstein

I am in one small way grateful to Dianne Feinstein. It was her election by the HUGE majority of people in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas that convinced me that I was okay; my state or residence was The Problem. Other than that one redeeming impact, she is a reprehensible person. The puddin-heads electing her term after term are one small step above. In the video clip below she brags about the horrid, worse-than-useless “assault weapons ban” that made ridiculous attachments to semi-auto rifles BAD while other attachments were okay. I turn you over to …

Good Guys With Guns

Progress Report 10 August 2018     Dear GOOD GUYS & GOOD GALS,   I am pleased to announce that STEPHEN WILLEFORD — one of the consummate “good guys with a gun” — gave us a great interview last week where he shared his story about the mass-shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on 05 November 2017.   If you watch the clip of Stephen’s story below, it should be clearer than ever why it is NECESSARY for individual Americans to “keep and bear arms” in places like churches, schools, concerts and other public spaces.  It should also be clear why citizens should be trained — as was Stephen Willeford, an NRA Member and former firearms […]

Good Guys With Guns

James Jaeger and Matrix Productions are well along production of an important, positive movie. I subscribe to his mailing list, receiving occasional updates and progress reports. The film crews have completed most of the interviews with The Big People who stand tall in defense of armed self-defense. There are a lot of work hours yet to go before we get to see this film. Meanwhile, he just sent this insightful explanation of how modern movie production functions, in particular how the financing and industry practices determine most of what the primary media outlets present… and how alternatives actually reach a significantly larger audience… and how that has already changed politics today. – Ted FINANCING CONSERVATIVE MOVIES Would the Founding Fathers […]

Good Guys With Guns

Progress Report 29 June 2018 Dear GOOD GUYS & GOOD GALS, I am happy to report that we have had four successful film shoots. One to Connecticut to interview WALTER REDDY, ROSIE HAAS and SHEILA MATTHEWS.

Stewart Rhodes and Pastor Baldwin’s interviews – which were done 28 June 2018 as scheduled – will be up at that URL in about 5 […]

guns, control, political climate

I assembled here several articles, excerpts and links on the topic of guns, shootings, disarmament and such. D.C. raises white flag in fight over 2nd Amendment While leftists all over the country, from Hollywood to Hillary Clinton, are hyping gun control in the aftermath of the horrific sniper attack on concert-goers in Las Vegas, the District of Columbia is raising the white flag in a court fight over that very issue, apparently hoping to limit what officials there would consider damage from an adverse ruling. It was a panel of the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia that rejected the district’s requirement that people prove to police they have a “good reason” to want to carry […]
