‘No One Wants To Take Your Guns,’ v. 06-24-2019

Filed under: Politics, Principles, Self-Defense — mikewb1971 @ 11:10 PM

This one is an oldie (dated Monday, 24 June 2019) but a good one, as it puts the victim disarmer attitude up front, where we can see it (and ridicule it!) —

YEP. I’M COMING FOR YOUR AR15

You heard me. No apologies. The same reason you don’t need a lion to protect your home, is why you don’t need a rifle that shoots at 3X the speed of sound and splits concrete like ice. It’s an unreasonable risk.

End the mass shooter era in America

But wait, there’s more!

Just about every time one of the DNC-affiliated victim disarmers spouts off with this sort of nonsense, there’s a “conservative” Republican who chimes in to offer support

Replying to @Nate_McMurray

As unpopular as it may be with my fellow conservative Republicans, I’m kind of with you on this.

I want us to always have the right to bear arms, has to be some limitations. I don’t want people to own hand grenades, or AR15’s with a bump stock and 100 round magazine.

Impeach the President?

I vote yes. While we’re at it, let’s impeach the Speaker of the House, the House Minority Leader and the Senate Pro Temp. In fact, let’s impeach every sitting member of Congress, their administrative assistants, the fat lady at the Dept of Education and every other bureaucrat making decisions on your behalf.

It’s time to throw the baby out with the bath water.

Book Review — Faith Seeking Freedom: Libertarian Christian Answers to Tough Questions

Filed under: Media, Philosophy, Principles, Reading — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:41 PM

BOOK REVIEW — Faith Seeking Freedom: Libertarian Christian Answers to Tough Questions

129 pages, by Dr. Norman Horn, Doug Stuart, Kerry Baldwin, and Dick Clark

FULL DISCLOSURES:

  • Kerry Baldwin has been a Facebook friend for several years now.
  • I don’t profess to be a Christian of any denomination or sect or whatever. Organized religion and I simply don’t do well together.

With those out of the way . . . .

Faith Seeking Freedom is easy reading, in that the authors don’t try to cram you chock-full of data and information and jargon, such that you would feel overwhelmed by it all.

When the authors cite Biblical content, they put the citation right there in the same paragraph as the point that they’re making, so you don’t have to keep flipping back and forth to the end of the chapter or the end of the book. This is probably for the best where electronic versions are concerned. Also, for those inclined to have a Bible nearby to check on the authors, it’s right there where you can compare and contrast the authors’ points against the Bible verse(s) itself.

The authors don’t attempt to take sides where the big divisions of libertarian thought occur, such as the minarchy vs. anarchy debate, or whether or not to be involved in the LP, with the exception of the abortion issue.

SPECIFIC POINTS

[Page numbers cited here are what listed is on the particular page. The actual pages on the PDF version that I used for this review will be that number, plus 10 pages.]

Chapter 2 (The Libertarian Basics, pp. 23-34) gives the reader a decent summary of the Non-Aggression Principle and how it applies to everyday life.

p. 26, part of the answer to Question #13 (How do libertarian Christians account for people who violate the non-aggression principle (NAP)?) takes on the minarchy vs. anarchy question rather well — the authors explain both sides without explicitly favoring one side or the other. (Disclosure: I personally lean towards the anarcho-capitalist side.)

p.39, Question #25 (Do libertarians believe any and every government is illegitimate?) also tackles the minarchy vs. anarchy adroitly, explaining both sides without favoring one or the other.

pp. 67-68 give a succinct and principled response to the “What about roads?” shibboleth.

OK, enough spoilers.

Do me a favor Do yourself a favor — Go and get a copy and read it for yourself.

SUMMARY

Faith Seeking Freedom is an easy-to-read, principled guide for Christians who are seeking to understand libertarianism, on par with Inclined to Liberty by Louis Carabini, The Law by Frederic Bastiat, or Down With Power by L. Neil Smith.

Go get a copy, read it, then tell your friends and family.

Want Total Freedom and No Responsibility? Be a Democrat!

Filed under: Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:33 AM

Apparently, being a Democrat makes you immune to the Beer Bug. Who knew?

This immunity doesn’t seem to discriminate between the lefty-fascist “progressive” kind, the “conservative” or “libertarian” kind or the Republican-wannabe Establishment kind.

The DNC’s nominee for First Crook, Creepy Joe, is a prime example of the last kind.

From Kamala Harris’ Twitter feed — 8:20 AM ⋅ August 17, 2020

In that picture, it’s plainly obvious that this is a gathering of more than five [5] people, and that they do not appear to be practicing any “social distancing” protocols.

As the TV pitchmen say, “But wait, there’s more!

In this second picture, it’s plain to see that not only are they not “social distancing,” but they aren’t wearing the idiotic masks that they insist that the rest of us wear any time that we step outside of our homes.

H/T Joseph L. Roberts — Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at 8:01 AM

It seems like Eric July called it last month when he [sarcastically] said in a video clip that “the virus is woke” and able to tell what your politics are, and only infect those who aren’t lefty fascist types of the sort that are working for the DNC, its affiliates and candidates.

After all, when you’re a lefty fascist whackjob, you can get away with just about anything, as Larry Correia writes:

Larry Correia

When a lone nut job maniac goes on a mass shooting, he represents all gun owners (even if his manifesto is all pro gun control). Even if he’s a raving left winger or has no coherent philosophy at all, he represents all republicans/Christians/white men/whatever group the left has a hate boner for this week. And the existence of this lone nut maniac irreparably taints half the population of America with guilt, even if they have nothing in common with him at all.

However, if somebody wearing a hoody and a ski mask, looting, burning shit, while chanting fuck the police and flying the hammer and sickle, gets caught on video beating someone with a baseball bat… HOW DARE YOU ASSUME THEY ARE ANTIFA?!? HE DOES NOT HAVE AN ANTIFA NAME TAG ON! WHERE IS HIS ANTIFA ID CARD? HOW DARE YOU SMEAR THESE INNOCENT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PEOPLE WITH THE ACTIONS OF A FEW BAD APPLES?!?

This may sound crazy, but just remember. If you are on the right you share collective guilt for every bad thing which has ever happened, even if it was done by people on the left. And if you are on the left, you are free from sin because you Care Harder.

On the individual level, if you are on the right, you are responsible for things that other people’s ancestors did 200 years ago. But if you are on the left, you aren’t responsible for what you are doing right now.

Also see this video clip, where the guy holding the gun on the woman in the car says (no way that I could have made this up) —

“I am not a cop, I will fucking shoot you. I’m a Democrat. I can shoot you because Democrats get away with everything.”

Taking Pictures or Video at TV or Movie Sets on Public Property is NOT a Crime

Filed under: Principles — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 8:05 PM

I saw this post on Craigslist about a month ago —

https://albuquerque.craigslist.org/vnn/d/albuquerque-pics-vids-at-movie-shoots/6921286643.html

Here’s the text of the post (Craigslist normally deletes posts 45 days after they’re put up) —

It is not illegal to take video or pics of movie shoots as long as you are doing from public property. Don’t let them try and tell you youre violating copyright laws because you cannot copyright real life. PINAC Photography Is NOT A Crime[1]. That is Robert Duh Niro in The Comeback Trail.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBsJVTCBTRc

Here’s the embedded video from the post —

Someone that looks like De Niro can seen standing to the left of the older orange car on the left side of the video.

It should be noted that not only was the photographer taking the picture from public property (somewhere in the Downtown area of Albuquerque), but that the set itself also seems to have been located on public property.

Someone needs to tell the producers and locations managers that if they don’t want the general public taking pictures or video of their stars or the set, then they should not use public streets as their set.

Just because you flash some cash in front of some Political Classholes, that doesn’t mean that you get to have exclusive use of public property.

Cash In With “Gun Control” AND Support the Second Amendment

Filed under: Events, Humor, Media, Politics, Principles, Resistance, Self-Defense, Technology — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 12:20 AM

Every gun should be a happy and wanted gun, adopted by loving owners who will care for it and feed it and make sure that there are plenty of other guns nearby to keep it company.

Still, most of the Political Classholes, along with their flunkies among law enforcement and the media, are working to part you from your firearms by hook, crook, or any other means available to them.

For example, this event in Albuquerque currently scheduled for Saturday, 13 July 2019, as advertised covered by KOB

APD to hold gun buyback event

The event in question isn’t a “buyback” at all, unless the City of Albuquerque or Bernalillo County were at some point in the business of providing firearms to private citizens — the people didn’t get them from the City or County in the first place, so the event organizers are not buying any guns back from anyone.

This is nothing more than a publicly-funded turn-in-your-guns-now-for-a-pittance-so-we-don’t-have-to-red-flag-you-and-maybe-kill-you-later scheme.

Most people don’t realize that this could be a way to make some easy cash at the expense of the victim disarmers and hoplophobes.

Simply shop the plumbing sections of Home Depot or Lowes. A hundred bucks worth of pipe and end-caps can be made into 400-500 worth of 12-gauge zip guns. I doubt that APD will be test-firing them before handing over the cash.

And making those zip guns is completely legal under New Mexico law. Selling them to anyone other than a federally-licensed dealer might put you afoul of federal victim disarmament statutes. Just remember to make sure that the barrel length is at least 18 inches (more like 26 inches, as the overall length of your hypothetical zip gun needs to be 26 inches), per the National Firearms Act of 1934.

(Will the Albuquerque Police Department or the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office be conducting background checks on anyone turning in their guns for pennies on the FRN? Signs point to “no.”)

What else does this bit of do-it-yourself “gunsmithing” do besides add some potential cash to your wallet?

It allows you to illustrate the utter futility and stupidity of victim disarmament statues.

When anyone who paid a bit of attention in high-school shop class (do they still have that in the taxpayer-subsidized, government-owned-and-operated indoctrination and daycare centers public schools any more?) can build themselves a serviceable shotgun for under 50 in about an hour, what does that do to the victim disarmament schemes of the Political Classholes?

Simple — it ensures that at least some segment of the population will almost always be armed, despite what the Classwipes want.
