    Q: I like using firearms, but I can’t stand the political paranoia many gun owners have? Does anyone else feel this way?

    A: I sure as fuck do not.

    It’s not paranoia when the bad guys actually are out to get you.

    Nobody wants to take your guns

    We Don’t Need Gun Control. We Need Domestic Disarmament

    Is there an anti-gun Presidential candidate?

    PROMOTER PAT DAVIS SAYS

    “These scooters are great … if you’re like me and live just a little too far out of Central to get onto public transit that’s accessed there.”

    WTF? Worst excuse for hypocrite Davis continuing to use his private pickup truck.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

  1. Posted to Facebook, Quora and Twitter

    Q: I live in fear that I will get shot and that doesn’t even seem surprising. Will the American government ever do anything about this?

    A: Maybe Medicaid can get you a prescription for chlorpromazine or some other psychiatric drug . . . . ?

    If you’re insisting that any level of American government should further infringe the pre-existing individual, civil, Constitutional, human right to own and carry weapons, as supposed to be protected by the Second Amendment (and various, sometimes stronger state-level provisions), well, millions and millions of us American gun owners will just have to tell you to go fuck yourself.

    NO, we are NOT going to meekly surrender liberty or property just so that you can “feel safe.”

    Most people don’t realize that this could be a way to make some easy cash at the expense of the victim disarmers and hoplophobes.

    Simply shop the plumbing sections of Home Depot or Lowes. A hundred bucks worth of pipe and end-caps can be made into 400-500 bucks worth of 12-gauge zip guns. I doubt that APD will be test-firing them before handing over the cash.

    The event in question isn’t a “buyback” at all, unless the City of Albuquerque or Bernalillo County were at some point in the business of providing firearms to private citizens — the people didn’t get them from the City or County in the first place, so the event organizers are not buying any guns *back* from anyone.

    This is nothing more than a publicly-funded turn-in-your-guns-now-for-a-pittance-so-we-don’t-have-to-red-flag-you-and-maybe-kill-you-later scheme.

    Every gun should be a happy and wanted gun, adopted by loving owners who will care for it and feed it and make sure that there are plenty of other guns nearby to keep it company.

    The electric “zero-emission” busses for Central aren’t yet ready for prime time (or any other kind of service), so you will just have to make do in the meantime.

    So the criminals using these devices didn’t bother to submit an ATF Form 4, set of fingerprints, a photograph, or to pay the ∅200 transfer tax?

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

  1. Posted to Facebook, Quora and Twitter

    Q: Where can I find information on firearms safety classes taught by Everytown for Gun Safety in my area?

    A: I’m still waiting for them to start those classes, too.

    Instead of using their billions to fund actual firearm safety classes and build shooting ranges where people can practice the skills that they learn in those classes, Bloomberg and Soros spend their time and fortune trying to render the pre-existing individual, civil, human right to own and carry weapons as null and void as they can, wherever they can, however they can.

    Instead, it’s the perennial boogeyman of the victim disarmers and hoplophobes — the National Rifle Association of America — that’s behind a lot of the actual firearms safety and proficiency training that goes on in America.
