I do not think it means what you think it means Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Emphasis mine. I’m cool with Bloomie wasting his money, which is exactly what this will do. However, the hilarity is that he thinks he...

Sean Caranna says Thursday March 27th 2014, the Florida Sheriffs Association (FSA) openly testified against Second Amendment rights to the Florida House Judiciary Committee saying, “In our opinion, there is a difference between owning a firearm and carrying one concealed on your person. Owing a firearm is a right; carrying it concealed is a privilege; and it is a privilege that is earned…” That last sentence is going to be the death knell for the ban on open carry here in Florida.

A guy pens a letter to the paper calling gun owners “Irrational”. Then, without the slightest bit of irony or self-humility says this And, although I don’t have documented evidence to prove this, it seems that the more guns a person owns, the more irrational he/she becomes. So, we now understand how really perilous owning a gun is and we have decided not to get one. Our intellect is too important to us to take the chance of corrupting it through gun ownership.

Miguel is reading through the MAIG emails so you don’t have to. My favorite part is someone asking Mark Glaze if he read an article in the NYT and he replied “I gave them the memo”. For all the effort, for all the money, for all the celebrity endorsements and man hours they put into this, they have very, very, very little to show. Meanwhile, we continue the real grassroots effort and are still moving the ball forward.

There is nothing wrong with pointing out the racist roots of gun control. In fact, it is an effective means of arguing our points since gun control didn’t start off as a way to ‘lower crime’ but rather a way of keeping ‘the other’ from being legally allowed to defend themselves. However, I do want to remind people that while the original intent of the laws was to keep guns out of hands of minorities, intent is non-transferable.

Anti-gun math. Look, I realize it’s poor wording, but for Pete’s sake, if you say “the number of children killed by guns has doubled every year since 1960” and only one child was killed in 1960, you are saying there would be 9,007,199,254,740,992 kids dead in 2012 (2^53). Thank goodness only one child died in 1960 otherwise we’d have over 18 quadrillion children die this year.
