Reason #4,237 why we go armed in public

(Via the Drudge Report)

18-year-old wants-to-be-famous bad guy walks into a restaurant and shoots a mom and her daughter who are celebrating a birthday. On his way out the door, an armed citizen drops him, ending the problem permanently.

Thus endeth the lesson.

The inversion continues

I have tried to keep off of politics on the blog lately, with the exception of the gun thing, which I'll never lay off of. But reading this John Nolte piece on "How Donald Trump Killed Off the 1960s" just made that bell in my head go "DING!"

When you stop and consider it, the world really has turned itself upside down in many ways. No matter what theory of history, if any, you subscribe to, it's an interesting time to be alive.

Personally, I'd rather it was boring as hell, but that doesn't seem to be an option. Maybe it never has been.

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”

That statement, attributed to Rahm Emanuel, mayor of the gun-controlled paradise of Chicago, takes on new meaning in light of the news that Obama-ear Education Secretary Arne Duncan was emailing Emanuel for advice on pushing the gun ban agenda in the days following the Sandy Hook school shooting--literally before the victims funerals.

There's a reason we call it "dancing in the blood of the victims".

As Michael Bane has said so many times, "The mask is off."

Okay, Now I Actually Do Want To Take Your Guns

This is what many/most/99% of anti-gunners want, and why even hypothetical discussions of alternatives run into brick walls on both sides.

Not as if it's a surprise, I guess. But I always have this foolish and unreasoning hope that humanity should be better than it apparently capable of being. Too much Star Trek as a kid, I suppose.
