Can’t stand the pot sub-culture – Still glad CO legalized it and hope the rest of the world soon follows. Key point I think pot laws and most drug laws are paternalistic. They are a vehicle for the majority of society expressing their distaste for a certain lifestyle, in the guise of helping the wayward find a better way of living. But we really ought to respect other citizens as adult, free human beings. And freedom means the freedom to make mistakes, or, if not mistakes, to make choices the...

It is impossible to speak in such a way that you cannot be misunderstood.  ~Karl Popper, Unended Quest You and I know what the 2nd Amendment means. We’ve read the founding fathers’ papers, we understand their intent, and there is no confusion as to what they meant. Court case after court case saying the complete opposite, our opponents are still convinced the 2A is only for state controlled militias and possibly blowing Bambi’s brains out. So, given the Karl Popper quote above, how would...

A harmless drone was dropped at the feet of the German chancellor during a meeting. These UAV are cheap, easy to make, easy to control, impossible to regulate, and are powerful enough to carry a small explosive device. Our military use UAVs to carry some pretty hefty armament. These things could be used for very limited, and targeted attacks. The future is interesting. Scary, but interesting.

To protect my family from this. Seriously. Watch this video, but keep anything sharp or shooty away because I’m lucky I was at work when I saw it, otherwise I’d have punched the monitor while screaming. Very little can get me riled up like this, but that’s a direct threat to my children. Claiming that they do not ‘belong’ to me or my wife comes with the implicit understanding that you can just come and pick them up at your leisure. My children are not property, but they are mine to raise as I...

Got a note from a friend of mine here in God’s Waiting Room (aka Florida) about a run in with the popo that her husband had. She wants this story out there for the world to see Dan got pulled over by a statie today because he didn't get over into the middle lane fast enough when passing their vehicles and a car they'd pulled over. The trooper asked Dan if he had a weapon in the car, and of course Dan said, "Yes, I'm a CCW holder and my pistol is locked in the glove compartment." The trooper...

We seem to be eating them. I agree with Barron. By lumping all gun companies into “With us or against us” based on their sales to LEO’s, we’re doing the exact same ‘Zero Tolerance’ thing we bitch about schools doing. Not every company has that luxury. Not every company can even entertain the idea if they’re publicly held (when you’re not protected by the Progressives, laws are applied harshly). But the one that has been a thorn in my side are the attacks on Alan Gottlieb. For fuck’s sake folks,...

An anonymous call is made that a mother is allowing her children to play outside unsupervised (*gasp!* THE HORROR!). Police show up, arrest the mother for child abandonment and sends her to jail… leaving the kids without a parent to supervise them. Honestly, I think that’s one of those times you thank Officer Friendly for showing up, grab your kids, walk inside and lock the door. Part of a cop’s job is to use that wet mass of neurons between his or her ears to determine if the call they...

I would hope that most of my readers are familiar with Jeff Goldstein of Protein Wisdom. Jeff has been one of those bloggers who have been instrumental to my political arm of this blog. Jeff is both entertaining and thorough. Jeff has made quite a few enemies over the years, including death threats to his family and has armed himself appropriately. Jeff is one of those people who the enemies of freedom are more than happy to bully into silence, and recently, he has experienced ‘hassle by cop’...

When the fire is one of freedom, you want it to spread. NRA is alerting members on two bills proceeding in Pennsylvania. One is a bill to give some teeth to our preemption provision, HB1523, sponsored by Daryl Metcalfe. This bill does not go nearly as far as the Florida law, but at least puts the municipality on the hook for legal fees and damages. HB45 was an amazing piece of work. Illegal gun laws dropped off the books on their own accord and even Miami folded like a cheap lawn chair...

But Larry Correia says is much better As for all of the people out there on the internet having a massive freak out about the government potentially damaging something they love… WELCOME TO THE PARTY. You think this is something new or unusual? Nope. This is just about a topic that you happen to be familiar with. If you fall into that camp, I want you to take a deep breath, step back, and examine all of the other issues in the past that you didn’t know jack squat about, but your knee...

Miguel over at Gun Free Zone has a twitter conversation with one of the Occupy Wall Street goons. What said goon tells him is nothing short than chilling -@anarcosocialist You guys want to tax “the rich” 90% of what they make. So what happens when “the rich” stop generating revenue? -@GunFreeZone the vast majority will fall in line the others will be forced to keep working. its very simple -@anarcosocialist what do you mean they can’t? How are you gonna force them if they don’t...

Seems to be a common, lefty view. Anyone who doesn’t believe exactly as you do should be rounded up and ‘reeducated’ Many times I’ve riffed on a dark, delicious fantasy about rounding up Tea Bagger types and sentencing them to green re-education camps for minimum one-year terms. Now, maybe it’s selection bias, but the right leaning web sites that tend to call for similar things are considered kooky by even the right leaning folks. For the left, this seems to be a common thread. Notice...

Or 20 cops will taser, pepper-spray, zip-tie, and beat you Dayton police "mistook" a mentally handicapped teen-ager's speech impediment for "disrespect," so they Tasered, pepper-sprayed and beat him and called for backup from "upward of 20 police officers" after the boy rode his bicycle home to ask his mother for help, the boy's mom says. I’m getting sick and tired of all these stories like this. I’ve gone from wanting to be a cop to developing an...

It’s almost a cliché in the gunnie circles that “The Second protects the First”. I’m a firm believer in the saying because there’s a lot of truth to it. Dr. Suzanna Gratia Hupp once said How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual… as a trustworthy and productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised, and taken care of. Unfortunately, I think this goes well beyond politicians....
