Reaching the wrong audience

July 24, 2009

I have enjoyed The Art of Manliness blog for a while, and particularly like the illustrations. I sort of figgered the other guys who read it were manly types… boy was I ever wrong.

So, today, Brett puts up a pretty good article detaining some of the best firearms for home defense.   Get a load of some of the comments from readers:

Do you want to have blood on your hands if an idiot reads your blog buys a gun and then hurts somebody?.   Everyday, 8 children and teens in the U.S. die of gun violence. Please be a bit more thoughtful next time… (Jimmy)

Must agree that this post left me feeling really uncomfortable.  .. in many countries, such as mine, obtaining firearms like these is nearly impossible – Thank Goodness! (Drew)

I’m not sure I like this blog so much any more, please write less about the best way to kill or threaten people. (Tom)

The best weapon for home defense is a phone. If bad people try to get in: call the cops.  (Pieter)

And these were just the first few responses.  Luckily, the tone improved immensely as I got further down in the comments.  Seems most of the girly comments were from Europe, too.  It’s a damn shame what’s going to happen to these people when the dead rise to walk the earth… or the next time the Germans come over the border!


Why you NEED another shotgun

June 22, 2009

Let’s face it, you’re not going to be successful at fighting zombies with a katana. I don’t care how many movies you’ve seen, learning to fight and win with any kind of edged weapon takes lots of training. Unless you’re going to spend a year of weekends studying the art of the blade, the first zombie to shuffle by is going to have you for lunch.

By all means, have a pistol and a rifle. You might get lucky and headshot a zed way out there with your .223, and a good pistol or large-bore revolver slows them down up close. But real zombie hunters know – it’s the 12-gage or nothing.

Can’t have too many, either. I keep one for myself and my wife, as well as one per vehicle. Pump shotgun, 12-gage, everybody needs a couple. Puts the dead back in Undead.


If Obama is as smart as they say…

March 1, 2009

Scipio‘s post “Our Fearful Master” led to some interesting comments the other day – among them a comment from “Checkers” which reads in part:

… I am around my fair share of deputies. None, in 18 years of my exposure to law enforcement personnel, would follow an order from the feds to begin confiscating guns…

I don’t think that’s a concern, Checkers.  The evil men who control Obama aren’t stupid enough to try a trick like that.  There are three hard, cold facts that all politicians know-

  • Wholesale gun confiscation will spark an immediate civil war.
  • Local police will not support such an action
  • Neither will the military.

Those who now control the government know that the quickest way to put an end to all their dreams is a detour down Gun Control Highway.  Yes, there will be further restrictions, don’t get me wrong, but a gun grab is off the table.  Opposition to Obama has coalesced quicker than anybody thought it would – it was a year before we got to this point with Clinton.  That sorry bastard admitted that it was the Assault Weapons ban that cost them the majority in ’94 and shut down the Utopian dream.

I expect Obama will take a much more certain path to socialism and slavery.

Can you think of any other thing that will cause the nation to rise up against those who would be masters?  Any one thing, or two things, that every patriot agrees on, and will unite them to oppose tyranny?

Anyone?

I would say that there is no single issue that can cause a widespread resistance.  Therefore, so long as they permit us to keep the security blanket of one gun, they will have their way.  Bring on the abortion mills.  Limit each citizen to one gun a month, a year, a lifetime.  Run up a gluttony of debt and let the welfare queens breed on the carcass of the hapless taxpayer.  Keep the borders open, let crime and criminals run rampant, shout down the preachers, hold kangaroo courts for anyone with the courage to call a turd a turd.

So long as the majority have TV, Pepsi, and a single muzzleloader, they can drag us all to the prison of utter governmental control without a struggle or a groan.

Buried in this NYT editorial about something inconsequential was this gem of Liberal thought: “…the anti-gun-control groups’ misreading of the Constitution as implying an individual right to bear arms.”

How the hell did we lose a war to these people? That’s so wrong as to be mind-boggling.

I hope that Vanderleun or Hawkins or somebody will show us how wrong it is – I’m too angry. If you can’t see why it’s wrong, then you deserve the chains you will surely wear.


Gun Control PSA

Now THAT is a Gun Control ad I’d love to see!


5.56 is too small

May 30, 2008

Apparently, complaints from the field have convinced the brass asses to review standard ammunition.

There’s a long and involved argument, with plenty of science and dull facts, about what we want munitions to do.  In my opinion, the threat of masses of Red Army infantry rolling across the plains of Hesse is pretty much over – we want something that will put a softball-sized hole center-mass of a hostile, and knock a pot roast out of the exit hole.  Gentlemen, say hello to my little friend .45ACP… and his big brother, caliber 30, design of ’06.

But keep the 5.56 in storage.  You never know when a billion Chinamen might need that kind of attention.


Hillary and The Revolution of 2011

May 7, 2008

A dark comedy, in three acts…

>August 2008- Chaos erupts at the Democratic Convention after DNC Chair Howard Dean allows the delegates from Florida and Michigan to be seated. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York is nominated on the twenty-third ballot.

>October 2008 – Ten days before the general election, former President Bill Clinton collapses at his office in Harlem. He is dead within minutes, and a doctor on the scene blames a massive cerebral hemorrhage.

>November 2008- After being down eight points in polling the day before her husband’s death, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton rides the sympathy vote to a narrow victory. Senator John McCain of Arizona, the Republican nominee, concedes the race at 9:38 PM Eastern.
