Unless you’ve been away on a retreat since before Christmas, or perhaps been abducted by aliens, you’ve probably noticed that the debate over “Gun Control” has been front & center in the news for months now.
The reason behind the flood of stories is terrifyingly simple: the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary. Twenty children and 6 adults lost their lives that day. Innocent victims of a deranged man, who, reportedly targeted THAT school because of revenge over incidents of bullying when he was a student there. A plan made more possible by the fact that Mr. Lanza KNEW the school was a Gun Free Zone, and he’d be met with little-to-NO resistance.
That last little tidbit seems to have been conveniently FORGOTTEN by President Obama, Senator Reid, et al. And, in the true “Alinsky” fashion of never letting a crisis go to waste, the Left has made this tragic event the focal point of their attack against the 2nd Amendment:
“A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
And attack, Obama-&-Company have done.
A mea culpa: I completely missed this video when it originally came out, back when the New York state newspaper (the ‘Journal News’) published the names and addresses of pistol permit-holders in Westchester and Rockland counties.
No matter. It’s just as pertinent today, illustrating perfectly the tremendous hypocrisy exhibited by Leftists/Statists when it comes to what THEY claim to “believe” in.
Posing as “Citizens Against Senseless Violence,” O’Keefe and company visited the homes of anti-gun journalists employed by The Journal News in New York and the Star-Ledger in New Jersey.
They also swung by Touré’s place and paid a visit to the ol’ Eric Holder homestead. Each household was asked to display a yard sign with the words “This Home is Proudly Gun Free.”
It’s no secret that I’ve been an NRA member for many years, even though I’m not exactly your typical gun enthusiast. I simply appreciate the idea of being able to defend both myself and my family.
Joining the NRA seemed like the natural thing to do, and I’ve always been happy with my decision.
But their ad campaign which floods my mailbox all year has always had room for improvement. It’s fine and all, but never exactly got me any more excited or motivated than I already was about the 2nd Amendment. And while Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre seems to be a nice man and a decent speaker, he also occasionally goes over the line rhetorically and ends up shooting himself in the foot (sorry, I couldn’t help myself…).
You have likely heard of some of the more ridiculous gun-related stories from the past week:
Welcome to the new ‘tolerance’.
These events prompted Maryland state senator J. B. Jennings to introduce “Senate Bill 1058 – The Reasonable School Discipline Act of 2013″. Courtesy of the Daily Caller:

Anytime that someone says the Left is so good at messaging, I laugh. They’re even more hapless than the GOP can sometimes be. The difference is that when the Left says something dumb, their media friends don’t repeat it. Ever.
And as if by request, the Rocky Mountain state decided to give us TWO examples which will never, ever appear on the NBC Nightly News. Here’s the first one:
Yes!! You don’t require a gun, because if someone tries to hurt you, you always have the option of whipping out your trusty PaperMate® pen to fend off your attacker.
Maybe Democratic State Senator Ulaberri thinks that’s what they meant in the old westerns when someone said “Draw”…?
And as bad as that was, this next one is possibly even worse.
Another entry in the “discussion” on guns, with the Left’s mask publicly starting to slip. Regardless of which side you’re on, if you’re honest, both men showed the artifice of the Left’s argument. There is nothing in their proposed gun ban that, logically, can’t be extended to other guns.
Which, by the way, was my point from this post earlier.
Lefties want to ban ALL guns, & all this talk about “this” rifle or “that” magazine size is bull-puckies…

Camel’s nose, meet tent:
The Daily Caller (Washington, DC): California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein staged a dramatic press conference Thursday on Capitol Hill with 10 weapons at her side and unveiled legislation instituting a government ban on more than 150 types of firearms, including rifles, pistols and shotguns.
Flanked by other anti-gun liberal lawmakers, including New York Sen. Chuck Schumer and Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, Feinstein announced the introduction of the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2013.”
The legislation being pushed by Feinstein — who has long history of calling for gun bans — would prohibit the sale, transfer, importation and manufacture of certain firearms.
