I am the President and I Will Not Be Mocked! *seconds later the mocking begins*

Mr. President, you were totally asking for this photo of you “skeet shooting” to be edited the minute you told us not to do it. You know Americans, we are incorrigible and we really like our 1st amendment rights.

So this comment:

“This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photography may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggest approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.”

was sort of like waving a giant red sheet in front of the raging bull of conservative disdain.

What exactly did you think was going to happen?

Minority Report: Piers Morgan Style

Apparently Piers Morgan believes that armed guards or civilians should actually be Tom Cruise in disguise, able to stop a shooter before the shooter pulls and fires their gun.

Mother Jones doesn’t think that any shooting where the shooter has less than 4 victims is a “mass shooting”, but Piers apparently lives in the opposite extreme where, even if an armed guard foils the attempts of a 15 year old would-be mass shooter, it doesn’t really count as stopping the mass-shooting because 1 person was shot.

“REVEALED: Armed guard was NOT able to stop Atlanta school shooting,” Morgan posted via his official Twitter account. He then linked to a story with a headline that completely contradicted his questionable claim. “Armed guard disarmed teen in Atlanta school shooting, says police chief,” the headline read.

- The Blaze

One of these is not included with the purchase of a gun.

No one ever claimed that armed citizens or armed guards are sci-fi heroes who could stop crimes before they even happen. We don’t have pale, naked, bald psychics laying around in vats of water in our basements that alert us to when and where someone is going to commit a crime; contrary to what Piers seems to believe.

Gun Control: Contradictions Abound

QUICK! GET THAT GUN AWAY FROM HER, SHE’S A WOMAN, SHE CAN’T SHOOT THAT!

This week in stupid things that anti-gun advocates have said.

CAROLYN MCCARTHY: I will tell you, if you talk to professionals, hunters and certainly sportsmen, they’ll tell you that’s not the gun to use. A rifle is more accurate. It’s certainly easier for a woman to be able to do that.

- Breitbart

There are several glaring issues with this statement. Not only are AR-15 used for hunting and sporting, as well as home defense, but she seems to be making the claiming that an AR-15 is not a rifle. This alone proves that she knows absolutely nothing about guns and has no place being part of the debate about gun control. AR-15’s are most certainly rifles.

The Call For Common Sense Gun Laws & Other Such Silliness (Via The Conservative New Ager)

In amongst all of this brouhaha, there are some claims that we can all agree on “common sense gun control.”  And this sounds reasonable.  More strenuous background checks, preventing the mentally ill from getting guns, and the like.  Of course all of these measures must be implemented by the government.  You know the same government that gave the very guns it’s now claiming should be banned to Mexican Drug Cartels.  I’m sorry but I would give a schizophrenic a gun before I give a gun to drug cartels (with the schizophrenic you might have a 50/50 chance they won’t do anything, with the cartels you have a 100% chance that mass murder will occur).

But I do believe in common sense gun control.

Today’s Target Practice at the Tonto National Forest

Arizona Nation Forests aren’t like other national forests…it’s basically just sage, tumbleweed, rattlesnakes, quartzite, and lots and lots of cactus.

My sister, she is weird, but has really good aim with a .22

My dad teaching her how to fire the .38, I’m so proud. She really likes the revolver, even if it is less accurate over long distance.

While I see the necessity of handguns and will be getting my own soon, I really am more of a rifle girl.

 

By the end of the day she was getting more accurate with that .22, even hit the cans several times.

Not as good for target practice in the desert

My grandmas a bad-ass

Me and my sister ^_^

My sister suggested this

We figured it might piss off liberals

Law Abiding Citizens Are Not the Ones We Need to Worry About

For some reason people are finding it odd that gun owners are a bit peeved at having their names and addresses published.

“They haven’t done anything illegal, so why should they care.” they shout and I shout back “And that’s why we don’t want to be treated like a sex offender!”

I fully support the 1st amendment and the 2nd amendment. They are my two favorite amendments in the Bill of Rights in fact, but what The Journal News did when they published an interactive map of all the pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties in New York state, was an outrageous abuse of the Freedom of Information Act (FoIA) and a disgusting breech of journalistic ethics.

Yes, this is public information.

Yes, anyone can request it from their county office.

No, you should not make an interactive map of the names and addresses of people who legally own handguns for any variety of reasons.

It’s legal, but it’s a HUGE breech of ethics and any “journalist” who thinks it’s appropriate, needs to get some lessons in common decency.

Even former criminals are saying this was a horrible, horrible idea.

“That was the most asinine article I’ve ever seen,” said Walter T. Shaw, 65, a former burglar and jewel thief who the FBI blames for more than 3,000 break-ins that netted some $70 million in the 1960s and 1970s. “Having a list of who has a gun is like gold – why rob that house when you can hit the one next door, where there are no guns?

“What they did was insanity,” added Shaw, author of “License to Steal,” a book about his criminal career.

Frank Abagnale, who was portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2002 film “Catch Me if You Can,” and is perhaps the most famous reformed thief to ever earn a legitimate living by offering the public insight into the criminal mind, called the newspaper’s actions “reprehensible.”

“It is unbelievable that a newspaper or so called journalist would publish the names and addresses of legal gun owners, including federal agents, law enforcement officers and the like,” said Abagnale, who noted that he grew up in the suburban New York area served by the Journal-News. “This would be equivalent to publishing the names of individuals who keep substantial sums of money, jewelry and valuables in their home.”

(Fox News)

In other words, The Journal News just made the world a far more dangerous place for everyone to live in. Those who don’t own guns will now be at higher risk of being burgled and those with guns will be targeted by criminals who want to steal their guns, putting more stolen guns on the streets if these criminal entrepreneurs are successful.

Thanks, thanks a lot TJN.

Unsurprisingly, this is already causing problems for people in who own guns in these counties.

Consider who has these permits. Many retired police officers, who have criminals a plenty who would like to find them; survivors of domestic abuse, rape victims, and victims of stalkers who only purchased guns to protect themselves and feel safe in their own homes.

Now, thanks to this incredibly stupid “news” organization, these people’s names and addresses have been published for all the world to see.

“This one narcotics officer from Westchester County just retired. Dedicated his whole career to protecting the citizens of Westchester County and they can’t protect him now. He said I’ve never been so fearful for the safety of my family… This one lady whose been stalked for years in West Chester County. She finally found peace, two years without the stalker contacting her. Two days after that paper released her information she gets hangups all night long. She lives in fear, her and her three daughters.”

And now inmates in prisons have been telling guards that they know their home addresses, thanks to the map. (via Reuters)

Yes, Journal News, I’m sure you’ve made the world a much safer place by exposing the addresses of all us “bitter clingers”.

The first time an innocent civilian or cop is killed in their home and the criminal admits to getting the address from your publication, the first time a house that doesn’t have a gun permit is burgled and the burglar admits he cased houses NOT listed on your website, and the first time a person is shot using a gun stolen from the the home of a law-abiding citizen whose address you published, I want you to take a long look in the mirror and hold yourself accountable for your actions.

You might not have committed the crime, but you enabled it.

I hope you are proud of yourself.
