What the National Guard flap tells us about Bloomberg (who btw endorsed Obama).

This is from yesterday, but it bears noting:

Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitz’s impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn — arguing that approving the Beep’s request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state.

“We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”

San Francisco Weekly: Covenant Copperheads*?

(Via AoSHQ): Here’s what we in the business call a pro-tip for SF Weekly Blog gun-grabber Joe Eskenazi: if you want to write a post that can be summed up as Owner of legal firearms plans to sue pig-ignorant Californian law enforcement officials for false arrests and temporary confiscation of said legal firearms, go right ahead.

But, for the love of God: if you’re going to try to scare your readers by showing them a chart of those terrifying devil boom-sticks known as ‘assault weapons’…

…use real ones, dumb[expletive deleted].  I don’t even play Halo and I recognized it as being from a game on sight.

California gun-grabber bill on Jerry Brown’s (D, CA) desk.

Your move, Governor Moonbeam.

The measure, aimed at an increasingly popular tactic used by 2nd Amendment activists, would make California the first state since 1987 to outlaw the controversial practice of publicly displaying a weapon.

The governor — a gun owner — has not taken an official position on the bill, passed by the Legislature last week. He has argued both sides of gun control issues in the past.

…because he’s going to have to make a choice now. California law currently permits the open wearing of unloaded firearms; this bill would eliminate such practices, despite the fact that an unloaded gun is pretty much by definition not a threat to anybody. But it does serve notice that there is someone out there who is prepared to respond to a threat, if necessary… and if people are worried that carrying guns might lead to gun violence: oddly enough, violent crime has gone down as firearms carry generally has gone up. Which should surprise nobody, but apparently still does. That’d be mostly people for whom guns are some sort of scary evil magical item, mind you. (more…)

#rsrh Good news: TX CCW licenses most up among AA women.

Very good news.  As the saying goes: God made man: Sam Colt made them equal. Which goes double for minorities and women, frankly.

Besides, if you’re in a state with a responsible Carry Concealed Weapon program – and they more or less all have to be; there are a lot of predatory gun-grabber lawyers out there – then you’re going to walk out of one of those programs with a pretty clear understanding of what a gun is, what it can do – and, more importantly, what it cannot do.  Put another way: how do I feel about encountering a black woman with a gun and a CCW permit?

Relieved.

WHY WOULD NINJA AVOID THE NRA?

[UPDATE: CORRECTION! CORRECTION! CORRECTION! AN ALERT READER POINTS OUT THAT GLENN REYNOLDS HAD IN POINT OF FACT SPECIFIED "EVIL NINJAS!"  I THUS APOLOGIZE TO GLENN REYNOLDS FOR THE ERROR, AND WILL NOW EXPIATE MY SHAME BY GETTING THE COFFEEPOT* READY FOR TOMORROW. - ML]

 

Surely Glenn Reynolds knows that ninja have historically been familiar with firearms for centuries; so clearly any good, patriotic American ninja would see no problem in belonging to the National Rifle Association – particularly since doing so would also help a ninja guarantee his Second Amendment rights.  Not to mention Concealed Carry… and, honestly: if you can’t trust a ninja to be responsible and careful about the weapons that he bears, then who can you trust?

I will readily admit that evil ninja would be well-advised to avoid the NRA, but that’s a different story altogether.

Honestly, I don’t know what Glenn was thinking, there.

#rsrh Ah, gun-grabbers.

It’s a bit of a trek to get to (from here to here to here to here to here), but this illustration of why people who get into religious* hysterics over firearms really need to actually learn something about them first is worth it.  I won’t spoil the joke; suffice it to say that the gun-grabber led with her chin, then followed it up with a Sam Katz move.

(pause)

OK, not really on that last one, but that was too good a campaign ad (?) to pass up.  It’s Canadian anyway, so it doesn’t really count.

I am a better person for having Glenn Reynolds point this video clip out to me.

Mass rape, murder in Georgi… no, wait, one of the ‘victims’ had a gun.

So that becomes One dead, one injured in foiled robbery/rape/murder attempt in Georgia. Via Fausta:

College Student Shoots, Kills Home Invader

…Bailey said he thought it was the end of his life and the lives of the 10 people inside his apartment for a birthday party after two masked men with guns burst in through a patio door.

“They just came in and separated the men from the women and said, ‘Give me your wallets and cell phones,’” said George Williams of the College Park Police Department.

Bailey said the gunmen started counting bullets. “The other guy asked how many (bullets) he had. He said he had enough,” said Bailey.

That’s when one student grabbed a gun out of a backpack and shot at the invader who was watching the men. The gunman ran out of the apartment.
