CSGV: Can't Handle The Truth Edition.

I was over at the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) Facebook page and noticed a comment from one of their, umm, what do you call people that comment on your Facebook? We'll go with Facebook commenter. This commenter, Marche, commented that she copied a pasted a comment by someone else. Her copy/paste was, in part:

Airport security breach thwarted by...counting

Apparently the security is so lax at San Diego International Airport, that a man bypasses TSA screening and boards plane with no ticket.

Wait, what? Yep, you read that right.

Hours after being released from jail, a man walked through an emergency door at San Diego International Airport, onto the tarmac and sat down on a United Express plane Tuesday, according to San Diego authorities.

But, there's more

La, Chicago, more La, tab clearing

I've got a few minutes waiting on a phone call and I thought I'd clear out some tabs.

La is doing some mighty fine work. Their state legislators were apparently upset that they didn't make it to the Baldwin Top Ten. When it costs as much as it does for a CCW and takes forever to get one, you lose points, me personally, I don't have one because I don't need one, or want one, but the fine citizens over in Louisiana that do want one have to wait, and wait, and wait and when I was doing the scoring for the Baldwin Top Ten gun friendly states, this cost the state 10 or 15 points, I forget. Anyway, SB 303 has passed committee, the House, the Senate, another committee and it looks like it is headed to the Ballot for the good people of Louisiana to vote on it. For those that don't know, SB 303 is a Constitutional amendment that declares that the right to own, purchase, possess, use, transport, etc. is a fundamental right and any laws prohibiting these rights must pass strict scrutiny.

Chicago has finally realized that they have a gang problem. Yes, those thugs that are criminals that don't register their firearms with the local government seem to be a problem.

What do they plan on doing about it?

On Tuesday, Emanuel and McCarthy outlined their strategy for dealing with Chicago’s gun violence — including improved intelligence on gang activity, increased efforts to rid communities of the “cancer” of liquor stores where much of the violence occurs, and ridding the streets of guns responsible for so much of that violence.

1. Gather intelligence on gang activity.
2. Rid the city of liquor
3. Rid the streets of guns.

I'm sure by "ridding the streets of guns" he's talking about increasing the fees to register firearms, or for a gun owner to possess TWO separate firearm owner cards, because, you know, all the street gangs these days are registering their firearms.

Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy noted:

70-80 percent of the shootings are gang related and that “4 percent of the population drives 90 percent of the violence in the city.”

So, the other 96% must the law abiding citizens that actually adhere to the law, and the ones that are punished by having to abide by the strict gun control laws.

Heading back to Louisiana, some ass wipe introduced a bill that would make it a crime to discharge a firearm within a 1000 feet of a residence in unincorporated areas of the state. Yes, it would have been against the law to target practice in your own back yard. The bill got struck down, but this is what the anti's mean when they talk about stronger laws, they mean MORE laws. You see, La already has a law that makes it a Felony to discharge a firearm (or do anything with anything) when it's foreseeable that it may result in death or great bodily harm to a human. You can find that in La RS 14:94(a). You see, it's already against the law to discharge a firearm when it's dangerous to other people, but MORE laws would make it even more illegaler. Well, not quite, because HB 204 would make it a misdemeanor.

I have a gun range on my ranch. It's set up near the house, but we fire away from the home (I don't want to be shooting toward my home, do I?). A law like this would make that a crime. I suppose they'd prefer someone in my situation fire toward the home. Dumbasses.

Still no phone call, but that's all I've got for now. What do you think about the LA law?

Another anti gun blogger, more lies

So, some nasty jack something another has a blog, and seems to be in some three way partnership with Joan Peters and Baldr O(something) for promoting each other's blogs. In the event you didn't know, Joan and Baldr are gun haters and anti-rights enthusiasts.

Back to nasty jack. Nasty (as I'm sure his fiends call him) wrote a post bashing the NRA so this let's us know his position on gun ownership as well. In his post he Lies when he says this:

Wayne LaPierre has served as the NRA head since 1991 and during his reign has produced the loosest gun laws ever enacted in the U.S., perhaps the world, which have resulted in a rapid increase in gun deaths.

More TSA Rat Bastard Asshattery

I hate the TSA. This agency is an abomination to the 4th Amendment. They're clueless, worthless, and useless. Dumbasses.

We've all heard or read about the TSA storing millions of dollars worth of useless equipment, but apparently they're not happy with having equipment just sitting around in warehouses, now they want to spend another $3M on toys such as Ipods, Iphones, and Ipads. I wonder if someone within the TSA is related to an apple store owner.

John Pistole changed screening for children under 12 last fall so they could leave shoes on and avoid, in most cases, invasive pat downs, but then hires a Catholic priest who was removed from the ministry over sex abuse allegations. Yeah, that'll make it easier on the kids.

Of course, TSA Rat Bastards don't limit their groping to the kids, they like to feel up cancer survivors and make them remove their prosthetic breast, while standing in line. Dumbass Rat Bastards.

When asked what the problem is, Pistole agreed that it's a lack of training. No, Dumbass, it's because the entire agency has their heads up their asses, oh, and they hire sex offenders who like to feel up kids, and grandmas, and Congressmen, oh, and kids. Dumbasses

Let's go back to private security and shut down this dumbass agency.

What about the homeless and 2A rights

In DC v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia and for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the protections of the Second Amendment also apply to the states.

What about the homeless?

Alaska, cars used in suicide more often than reported

The original title of this post was "Analysis of VPC's Car deaths V Gun deaths" but read on to see why it was changed.

The Violence Policy Center (VPC) has graced us with yet another 'study' (and a neat little graph) about motor vehicle deaths v firearm deaths and claim: Gun Deaths Outpace Motor Vehicle Deaths in 10 States in 2009 New Analysis Shows (I guess guns are still safer in the rest of the US)

2A proponents often bring up motor vehicle deaths when some anti-rights crybaby brings up the unintended deaths by firearms. These unintended deaths arise out from accidental and negligent discharges, whereas motor vehicle deaths arise from accidental and negligent motor vehicle crashes.

(very interesting graph after the jump)

Dennis 'give em bats and knives' Henigan would be proud

Dennis A., give 'em bats and knives to kill, Henigan Vice President, Brady Campaign should be proud of his work.

Washington Post is reporting that a woman was stabbed to death, but wait, DenHen get's a twofer for this one, she was pregnant. I wonder how Denny will explain to the family that these deaths don't count as much as a 'gun death'.

NYPD has tax payer funded private security

Yeah, you read that title right. Apparently their stuff is more important than the stuff of the citizens of New York, so now they have private security in their locker room, all funded by the tax payers. I wonder why they don't post security details at everyone's homes that were broken into, or had things stolen.

NYPOST Cops’ house louse

Instead of hitting the streets, cops are being paid to patrol an NYPD locker room.

Because, apparently, their stuff is more important than the stuff of the citizens of NYC.

Suicide, gun ownership and rates

The anti-rights establishment has set a metric, or a unit of measurement, of violence in the United States. They call it 'gun death' while turning a blind eye to the rest of the violent crime. In this unit of measurement they count suicide by gun and claim "30,000 people are killed every year by guns". A more honest statement would be that 30,000 people are killed every year by being shot, either by themselves or by someone else. The antis claim that having a gun in the home increases the risk of suicide 90% - 460%. (Wow, that's a huge spectrum from 90 - 460).

More Illinois gun control fail.

via thegunwire

Chicago Sun Times: Felon charged with selling 47 guns to federal informant

A convicted felon is charged in federal court with illegally supplying 47 guns to an informant who secretly recorded the transactions on the South Side.

But, but, it's illegal for a felon to receive or posses a firearm. "WE NEED STRONGER LAWS" the antis cry. I never did understand this 'stronger laws' thing. Do you change the law to read "it's extra illegal for a felon to posses a firearm"? No, what the antis mean is that they want MORE laws. What we have here is a prohibited person that didn't follow the law. Not only did he not follow one law, but he failed to obey MORE laws. You see, in Illinois, before taking possession of a firearm, the potential buyer must posses a firearm owner identification card (FOID).

Ladd Everitt (CSGV) now says SYG is ok.

Ladd Everitt (above, with something suspicious pointing at his head), continues with his histrionics in his latest drivel: Why ‘Stand Your Ground’ is really ‘Kill at Will’

What do you call a law that allows a person to shoot and kill another human being when they could otherwise walk away safely?

You see what he did there? He's portraying a potentially life or death situation like a day at the beach.

But, of course, Zimmerman had been carrying a gun and following — some would say stalking — young black men in his community for months before he ever encountered Trayvon Martin. He even notified police when he did so. More important, however, is the fact that Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law removes an individual’s duty to retreat from a conflict in public even when he can safely do so.

Gun control groups prove gun control doesn't work

The vast majority of national gun control groups call for assault weapons bans. Today, we are taking a look at why.

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) states:

Some assault weapon features, like pistol grips, second handgrips, or barrel shrouds, make the gun easier to hold with two hands. This allows the shooter to spray an area with bullets without taking careful aim, and to control the gun without getting burned as the barrel heats up.

CSGV lethal force is ok for some, not others

I get back to my office and look at twitter to see a conversation going on between a few people and CSGV about Zimmerman/Martin and of course, I have to chime in.

The leading statement was:

Wrong, you only need fear "great bodily harm," NOT death.

There are few things that are more harmful than a woman being raped, so I asked:

Pro-Gun Control may be Mental Disorder

The reaction from the gun control crowd to incidents of gun use is sometimes reminiscent of the pants shitting hysterics that you'd sometimes see from a 13 year old school girl when some life altering event, like her hair 'not doing right', is on the verge of destroying her life.

Histrionic: \his-tree-on-ik\: essentially it's intentional over reaction or over acting, but also.

Histrionic personality disorder: 
Histrionic personality disorder is characterized by a long-standing pattern of attention seeking behavior and extreme emotionality.
...sometimes dramatic, they have difficulty when people aren't focused exclusively on them. People with this disorder may be perceived as being shallow, and may engage in sexually seductive or provocating behavior to draw attention to themselves.

People with HPD have a high need for attention... exaggerate all of their behaviors and emotions, crave stimulation and usually make a big deal about nothing.

Let's see some reactions or, over reactions as the case may be.

To Cache or not to Cache

Cache: noun \kash\

1 a : a hiding place especially for concealing and preserving provisions or implements
  b : a secure place of storage
2 : something hidden or stored in a cache

I've wondered, what makes a collection of weapons a cache of weapons? According to the above definition, it must be hidden, secured, or something hidden or stored in a hidden or secure place. It seems, to the Main Stream News Media, a cache of weapons is a great headline and two or more weapons. My goodness, I must have an arsenal then. On to the news.

Just a little bit of Snark today

So much for the safety of Gun Free Zones. Second woman shot at Md. Church is on life support, not because she might live, but so that she can donate organs to others.

I think maybe the Chinese are helping to buy those 68,000 guns heading to Mexico. What's next to exercise your rights, retina scans?

According to Dennis 'give 'em all baseball bats and knives' Henigan, getting beat to death with a baseball bat is far better than getting shot to death. Hey DenHen, here's a twofer fer ya.

TSA still terrorizing and sexually molesting Seniors. Hey TSA you can SUCK MY ASS. If you don't like that, come arrest me, I dare you.

TSA taking $2,400 bribes to let drugs through. I wonder how much it would cost to get a bomb through.

More CSGV deception

It seems that the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has been on an advertising blitz regarding the Second Amendment debates back in the 1780s. Their claim is that openly carrying handguns was never debated regarding the Second Amendment. (They also cling to their interpretation that the 2A only refers to militia service and we all know that's been settled at the Supreme Court level).

Individuals carrying handguns in public was never so much as mentioned in debates over 2nd Amdt.

Avoiding the Truth: CSGV edition

Apparently CSGV likes to tweet what they think is the truth, but when confronted with the actual truth or they have no spin, they'll drop the subject, tuck their tail and move on.

CSGV "The government's FIRST and most important duty is to protect the public. Without that, there is no government"

Bill Baldwin "LULZ, government has no duty to protect individual, only public in general per SCOTUS. get a clue CSGV"
