Gun Safety: An Unsurprising Finding

Stately McDaniel Manor

Those of us that have been paying attention know that accidents involving firearms are not only far more rare than anti-liberty fanatics claim, but the number of such accidents have been declining precipitously for the last century. We also know this is particularly remarkable, because while the accident rate has been dropping, the rate of firearm ownership has been skyrocketing, particularly during the Obama years, with a push at the end due to fears of a Hillary Clinton presidency. This may seem to some to be irrational, until one realizes Clinton actually ran on gun control and promised to work “every day” she was in office to destroy the Second Amendment. Firearms sales records were being set virtually every month, and with the election of Donald Trump, the firearm industry is experiencing something of a sales slump, however, far more people, including liberals and women, who never considered owning firearms…

Picturing the Expanding Right to Bear Arms

Changes have taken place with laws, but the bottom line remains, “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”, despite what some trainers salivate for training requirements. 2A remains the one and only bastardized amendment, and very arguably, I could find due cause, to bastardize every other amendment.
Twelve state are Constitutional Carry, and there is no escalation of idiocy beyond what already existed prior to Constitutional Carry. Under advisement to lawmakers, I would suggest concerted efforts to elevate IQ levels above the temperature that beer is served. Firearms are not the problem, limited intelligence, remains the problem.

Gun Culture 2.0

I wrote recently about the dawn of the era of permitless carry, as a nascent stage in the expansion of gun carry rights following the normalization of shall issue concealed carry.

Of course I am not unique in observing this expanding right to bear arms. Over many years, Rob Vance has graphically depicted this and John Richardson has shared Vance’s graphic on his blog, No Lawyers Only Guns and Money.

The passage of permitless carry in New Hampshire and North Dakota has prompted the release of the latest graphic showing blue (permitless carry) continuing to grow and red (no permits issued) continuing to shrink.

Note that the graphic depicts the % of the US population that lives in states covered by different laws. It does not speak to how many or what proportion of the population carries concealed or has a permit.

It is interesting to…

Robber Tries To Commit Robbery With Gun Magazine, Gets Slapped

The perp still gets charged with Attempted Robbery.
“The taking of property by fear, or force, or intimidation.”

Give Me Liberty

H/T Bearing Arms.

This clown is fortunate he did not win the Darwin Award. 

This robbery might have actually worked in New York City or San Francisco, but was met with utter contempt by a pizza shop employee in South Carolina, where most folks know the difference between a firearm and a magazine.

A man tried to rob a pizza place on Ocean Boulevard Tuesday night by pointing a gun’s magazine at the employee, but the employee slapped it out of the suspect’s hands, according to a Myrtle Beach Police report.

Police responded to the location at about 10 p.m. Tuesday night and spoke to the employee, who said he saw the suspect and asked if he needed help. The report states the suspect then pulled out a magazine for a firearm and pointed at the victim, telling the victim to give him everything he has. The victim then…
