Another Tragedy...

...more useful idiots.

“Why did Chris die? Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA. They talk about gun rights. What about Chris’s right to live?” the father passionately continued. “When will this insanity stop? When will enough people say, ‘Stop this madness!’ We don’t have to live like this! Too many have died. We should say to ourselves, ‘Not one more!’”

No.  Chris Martinez died because he was in a gun free zone, deprived of his natural right to defend himself by craven Liberals, where a known and dangerous psychopath knew he could inflict as much as harm as possible on unarmed victims.

Ironically, Richard Martinez is such an useful idiot he nullifies his attack on gun rights in the same paragraph by mentioning a right to live.  If a person has a right to live, then he must have the right to defend his life, otherwise it's not a right.  And if an attacker has the potential to use a firearm, that person also has the inherent right to use a firearm to balance the level of force used against him.

Two More Student Suicides

The Standley Lake High student who self-immolated passed away a few days ago.  He had burns over 80% of his body.

In this morning's news is a report of two suicides at a local high school (Douglas County).

It's not the guns folks!  Nothing can stop a person who is truly intent on killing himself.  Nothing.  Likewise, only force can stop such a person from trying to take others with him as we saw at Arapahoe High School back in December.

It's time to take a good and hard look at the Liberal Re-education Camps.

Read between The Lines People!

Last week Andrew Cuomo opened his mouth to talk about his feelings in regards to Conservatives...
“Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

Being that these beliefs describe almost all Conservatives, and are actually not the slightest bit extreme, Conservatives responded with predictable outrage.

"Pro-assault-weapon" simply means you support the Second Amendment's original purpose; to balance the power of government that also has "assault weapons."  Is Andy giving up New York's assault weapons?  Didn't think so.

Local High School Student Self-Immolates

Yesterday a local high school student attempted to kill himself by setting himself on fire in the school's cafeteria...
Standley Lake High School in Westminster will remain closed on Tuesday, but counselors will be available after a 16-year-old boy set himself on fire in an apparent suicide attempt.
Authorities say the boy was burned over 80 percent of his body and is in critical condition at a local hospital.

When I first heard about this on the radio I couldn't believe my ears.  These are the things that happen in third world countries gripped by despair and tyranny not the United States.  Standley Lake High School is in a solidly middle class suburb of Denver not a hopeless war-torn nation.  This was a 16 year old student with his whole life ahead of him!  16!!!

There is a lot of speculation on why this happened and I think we'll have to wait to know the full truth.  Many are saying bullying is to blame.  Well, school aged children have always been bullied and I can't recall a single case of self-immolation as a result.

Something is terribly wrong with young people in America.  Something has changed.  Incidents like this should give us pause.  And by pause, I mean, life should not simply go on without addressing what is happening.

Do We have a Gun Violence Problem?

Or do we have a Liberal violence problem?
The Denver metro area is reeling from yet another "shooting" at a local high school.  The "shooter" shot a student in the head before taking his own life.
My thoughts and prayers are with Claire Davis who is currently in a coma, her family, and her friends.  I cannot imagine what they are going through at this time.
That said, we have to understand why this is happening and I'm taking note of some similarities between these "shooters."  Many of them have direct connections to Liberal organizations or identify strongly with Liberal ideas.  Ironic since Liberals will quickly blame Conservatives and Conservative groups for the violence--which in turn only further incentivizes it as a means to vilify Conservatives (yes, this Liberal-attempted-murderer even supported gun control).

Time for Civil Action?

No, I didn't mean uncivil, but civil as in civil court.

The promise of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) was to lower health care costs and increase accessibility.  High costs and less accessibility claimed lives as people had to make tough choices and were denied expensive care.  Thus Liberals proclaimed no one had a moral case to oppose Obamacare.  This argument demonstrates that Liberals understand the connection between high costs and suffering/premature death.

We Conservatives pointed to history, common sense, and mathematics arguing that Obamacare, being a collectivization of the health care system, would create resource scarcity and actually drive up the cost of care/decrease accessibility.  We were called racists, bigots, homophobes, and sexists.  We were told we hated women and children.

Well, we were right.  And we don't hate women, children, minorities, gays, or any other identity group--in fact Obamacare will prove to disproportionately damage those groups (and we warned about this too)!

A Lesson in Natural Consequences

And an apolitical one at that!

This is the local story of two dogs that were shot dead last Thursday night.  What some people see as a case of animal cruelty others see as a case of natural consequences.

Before I go any further let me state, for the PETA people, that a do not condone the killing of pets.  The issue here wasn't the dogs, it was the owners.

It all started months ago when the owners, the Lubliners, started getting complaints about their dogs' frequent barking.  They ignored those complaints.  The neighbors then turned to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office (DCSO) for help.  The Sheriff's department has charged the Lubliners twice with animal nuisance.

Supporting Opinions on "Gun Control" is Violence

Couple of items to share that back up my previous post "Gun Control" is Violence.
First, Jeffrey Shapiro gives us the data and first hand experience that, once again, demonstrates that "gun control" costs lives...
The gun ban had an unintended effect: It emboldened criminals because they knew that law-abiding District residents were unarmed and powerless to defend themselves. Violent crime increased after the law was enacted, with homicides rising to 369 in 1988, from 188 in 1976 when the ban started. By 1993, annual homicides had reached 454.


Since the gun ban was struck down, murders in the District have steadily gone down, from 186 in 2008 to 88 in 2012, the lowest number since the law was enacted in 1976.

"Gun Control" is Violence...

...and promises of "gun control" are threats of violence.  Behind every gun control advocate's argument is a desire to harm millions for the supposed goal of saving hundreds.  The ones that know this have a hidden agenda that they dare not share for it will expose their evil nature.

I put "gun control" in quotes because the end-game isn't reasonable restrictions on firearm ownership but rather an all-out prohibition or disarmament.  Liberals have made this perfectly clear in places in Washington DC, New York City, Chicago, etc... where they use taxpayer dollars to prohibit taxpayers from utilizing their sacred, Second Amendment protected, right to keep and bear arms.  A right that has been re-affirmed by every high court that has ruled on the matter including the recent Heller case.

In spite of promises that disarmament will prevent violence, here are the reasons the exact opposite is true...

Colossal Error

The media buzzing about Rep Todd Akin's statement this week--and only because he has an (R) behind his name.

But Akin didn't screw up nearly as bad as the "Conservatives" and supposed Christians who have rushed forward to vocally support abortion in cases of rape.  These hypocrites are the ones we should be discussing.

Chief Gun Grabber Exposed

Something phenomenal happened this week and was mostly missed in the media (as usual):  the leader of the statist effort to ban guns was honest.  No, not in what he said, but what he did.

"New York City Mayor MichaelBloomberg doubled down this week on his call for more gun control following theColorado massacre – suggesting police strike until additional laws are passed."

Now, let’s back up for a second...  We are told by gun control advocates that their agenda is necessary even if it saves just one life.  We are told that the cost of our Second Amendment isn’t reasonable if it unjustly takes just one life.  Obviously this is part of an impossible test for gun rights created for one purpose; completely eliminating private gun ownership.

So how many people would be robbed, raped, and murdered in Bloomberg’s nation-wide police strike?

...that’s how the Left sees tragedies like those that happened Friday morning in Aurora. 

These active shooter events are emotionally exhausting.  After the grief comes anger.  The most frustrating aspect is the vacuum of personal safety created by strict gun laws, an incompetent government that promises us safety but constantly fails to provide it, and an army of useful idiots (Century Theatres [owned by Cinemark] has a no guns policy even for lawful concealed carry permit holders).  And as if the actual shooting wasn’t bad enough, the coalition of gun-grabbers and government “officials” can’t even let the blood dry before they start using this as an opportunity.

Gun Control

Some say that gun control is broken, but that actually isn’t true.  Gun control has done exactly what it was intended to do—disarm the law-abiding public (and nothing more).  A criminal who is about to commit a violent crime with a gun doesn’t care about gun control laws to include magazine restrictions, barrel lengths, types of weapons, pistol grips, bayonet lugs, or actions.  A CRIMINAL DOES NOT CARE.  And thus, gun control does nothing to limit crime while the unintended consequences (empowering criminals) far outweigh any benefits.  This is a well-known and documented fact which is why support for gun control has dramatically decreased in the United States while the agenda of Leftist gun-grabbers becomes more apparent.

The Assault on Self-Defense

A little reported event occured this weekend that should have the attention of every American.  Congress actually debated revoking your right to self-defense.  No, they didn't offer an Amendment to the Constitution; they instead sought a way to bully states into striking down "stand your ground" laws having the same outcome without the due process.

Self-defense is a natural right.  Period.  There is no legal debate to be had here.  Self-defense is also a moral act as individuals have a duty to avoid harm and preserve their lives which in some unfortunate situations requires a level of force.  Pragmatically, self-defense is necessary in a civilized society as a means of de-incentivizing crime via natural consequences.   And the collective benefit of such acts is demonstrated when comparing crime rates in populations that acknowledge this natural right v. those that do not.  It bears repeating that America's crime capitals have the most gun control.

Handgun Selection: Overview

I am posting this advice as I have been asked by several people in recent weeks for advice on purchasing their first firearm. The reader should assume there is always more detail and information available than what is contained in this post—I am going to try and keep this as short and to the point as possible but it is a lot of information.

Anyone interesting in getting introduced to firearms should take classes from a qualified instructor. The local gun shop can be a great resource and the NRA is also be helpful.

If there was ever a time in the history of the United States to own a gun it is today. Right now. The idea that a weapon will be made available to you, in the event of emergency, and you’ll be able to use it is limited to Hollywood movies and fiction. The threats to our Second Amendment rights are numerous and growing.

The handgun (pistol) is the most versatile self-defense (SD) weapon available. If you can only own one gun, or are getting into guns because you want a SD weapon, the handgun should be first on your list. By no means should you stop with handguns either, but this post will deal only with handgun selection and it will be limited to semi-automatic handguns as they are the most capable for SD.
