Canadian provocateur mocks American Gun Freedom Icon.

My Questions about The Connecticut School shooting for Journalists covering it.

Tell me what part the state might have played in the commission or prevention of the event.

Remember how The Second Amendment discusses something about a well regulated militia?

This is beyond retarded and who ever made it is a moron. You need to identify yourself to buy ammo. I dunnno where anyone got the info that you didn’t.


What does that matter if the whole world knows that James Holmes bought his ammo in Colorado and you don’t identify yourself, let alone where you live?

Univ. of Colorado to segregate dorms for students with concealed carry permits

Do those damned Second Amendment zealots have any sense of decorum?

What I know about guns.

I fired a couple of 9mm weapons at a range on a trip a few months ago to Las Vegas. What I forgot that I’d see was muzzle flash from the pistol. What surprised me about the rifle was how there was so little kick - it didn’t jolt in my hands like I thought that it might. Knowing that I went in there to find out what these instruments to kill do, I came away with the sense that guns don’t give a person firing them a sensation commensurate with their designed purpose: to kill.

A special picture for today, for people who can only count to “two” by twos when they think about the U.S. Bill of Rights…for people who think that they need guns to protect themselves from their government.

‘Trayvon Martin’ gun range targets sold out in two days

sinidentidades:

A person selling gun range targets modeled after slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin says that their “main motivation was to make money off the controversy.”

WKMG’s Mike DeForest reported on Friday that the unidentified seller told him that the targets “sold out in 2 days.”

“The response is overwhelming,” the seller said.

While the item appears to have been removed from GunBroker.com, a cached version of the page was still available at the time of publication.

Photos of the item, which was titled “10 Pack Trayvon Martin Targets,” showed crosshairs over a hoodie similar to the one Trayvon Martin was wearing when he was shot by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in February. The figure has a bag of Skittle in his pocket and is holding what appears to be a can of iced tea, similar to what Martin had purchased before being gunned down. The pack of 10 targets was being sold for $8.

“Everyone knows the story of Zimmerman and Martin,” a description on the targets reads. “Obviously we support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug. Each target is printed on thick, high quality poster paper with a matte finish! The dimensions are 12″x18″ ( The same as Darkotic Zombie Targets) This is a Ten Pack of Targets.”

The seller’s ID was listed as “hillerarmco” from Virginia Beach, Virginia. A website by the same name is registered to Hiller Armament Company in Virginia Beach, but the associated phone number had been disconnected.

Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara told WKMG that this type of “hatred” just makes his client’s defense even more problematic.

"Call Now: Stop the Open Carrying of Handguns in Public

Later today, the California Assembly will vote on important legislation, AB 144, to ban the carrying of openly displayed handguns in public.
“Vote ‘YES’ on AB 144: Stop the Carrying of Openly Displayed Handguns in Public.
Those who carry exposed handguns in public are not required to undergo any training, and they may even be prohibited from possessing a firearm! This puts our families and communities at risk.
Help us pass this important measure that will put an end to the open carrying of handguns in public places in California."

Why? what is so unsafe about it? Most people who carry openly are more than qualified to carry, and often get stopped by the police to make sure the ARE allowed to carry. stop trying to take peoples fucking rights away. — Asked by razimob

First, thanks for posting my original post in your question. It kept me from having to look up my post.

Perhaps it would have been better for you to have used Disqus because it’s evident that you stepped right over the line about AB 144 that says Those who carry exposed handguns in public are not required to undergo any training, and they may even be prohibited from possessing a firearm!. Now the everyone in the Tumblrhood knows that you’re…um, a bit impulsive. Further, people walking around the guns is just plain intimidating and hostile to others — call me a pussy libtard©, but I’m in that group. I don’t get warm fuzzies from guns…sorry.

Next you assert Most people who carry openly are more than qualified to carry, and often get stopped by the police to make sure the ARE allowed to carry. Where? You don’t have any information about yourself on the home page of your tumblr that says where you live - so I can’t even take a swipe at your experience. I have memories of visiting 12 other states in the Union (Arizona, Idaho, Texas, Utah and Colorado being states most likely to have right to carry laws that I’ve visited) and live in California. In all places, I’ve seen armed guards with open side arms, but that’s all I’ve seen of private individuals carrying weapons. Now, were one to suggest that the San Diego Police Department walk up to people out of any kind of uniform to check persons qualified, I’d have some concerns because some really bad apples have been uncovered here in town. I know that most of the force is professional and embarrassed by that, but now that the City has budget problems, I don’t want to add one more task on their shoulders.

Next you demand that I stop trying to take peoples fucking rights away. Wanna talk about rights? Talk to me about the Establishment Clause and how religious zealots want to have prayer in all schools or how they want to ban same sex marriage or how the zealots want to deny women any kind of health care just because some people suggest that women shouldn’t make grave, autonomous decisions about what they can do with their bodies. Tell me about the War About Terror© and the War About Drugs© which have been used as a pretext to deprive citizens of their personal privacy and a justification to be capricious about who is given justice and who is not. Tell me about the likes of Rick Perry twisting the 10th Amendment to suit their own petulant desires. Tell me about how money is corrupting our electoral system, devaluing our vote. That’s the short list. Not going to talk about the Bill of Rights as a whole? You want to talk about Second Amendment rights only? Well, some citizen you are!

Another thing that I’d bet that you’ve never heard and you’ll scoff at, but there are some people like me who read the Second Amendment and don’t read it bifurcated as you and, say, the National Rifle Association does. We read the Second Amendment to affirm the National Guard (the militia) for states alone. Damn good thing that we never got elected to congress or sit on the Supreme Court, eh?

Really, thanks for giving me an opportunity to rant about how single minded so many Second Amendment advocates are. I’ve run out of patience for people who won’t put it in context with other rights so many Americans blabber about cherishing. Just remember, because you think you need a gun to defend other rights that you think you understand make you a lesser asset to the republic and weakens the republic. None the less, you’re completely invited to surprise me and show me how wrong I am about all of this (like your ACLU card with your NRA card or something) in a disqus comment to this. But please, please, please - let’s not reblog this pissing match and keep the content on everyone’s dashboards fresh.

Thank you.
