One-sided Shootout at Coronado Mall!

Filed under: Politics, Principles, Reading, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:08 PM

More “gun violence” at an Albuquerque mall on Thursday, 31 March 2022, as reported by the Albuquerque Journal, and reposted by the Journal to Facebook[1]

Five teens accused of beating at Coronado Center, by Matthew Reisen, Journal Staff Writer by Matthew Reisen, Journal Staff Writer

At least this time, no one seems to have been injured or killed as a result of shots fired.

Meanwhile, there have been several firearm-related homicides (involving shots fired at the victims) at other locations around Albuquerque — in the Downtown area, for example.

“Rbj Benjamin” posted a comment

Where’s our concealed carriers when you need them?

To which I replied

Concealed carry is not permitted on the property, per Coronado Center policy.

Blame Coronado for this one with their “No weapons allowed on site” policy, not concealed-carriers for their “failure” to be first responders to this incident.

And then there’s my follow-up comment

So when Ross and Morales were allegedly pistol-whipping the Fuddruckers employees, should that be considered “gun violence” (firearm(s) were involved) or “blunt-object violence” (no shots were fired at that time) ?

ONCE AGAIN, we see just how “effective” this sort of “No weapons allowed” policy is (it is NOT effective, for those too dense to understand sarcasm) in stopping firearm-related crime.

As for the “gun free” status of Coronado (and Winrock, Cottonwood, etc.), if someone is injured or killed by a criminal there, and that injury or death could have been prevented had the victim been armed, I hope the victim or their survivor(s) sue the property owners into non-existence.

Something not yet brought up: Ross and Morales are both under the age of 21. This means their mere possession of handguns was a federal offense. ANOTHER failure of the victim disarmament statutes.

Apparently, I made a mistake — per 18 U.S.C. § 922(x)(2)[2], Ross was legal in possessing a handgun.

Still, Ross’ alleged pistol-whipping of the Fuddruckers staff was definitely NOT legal, and would probably constitute battery, if not aggravated battery

30-3-4. Battery.

Battery is the unlawful, intentional touching or application of force to the person of another, when done in a rude, insolent or angry manner.

Whoever commits battery is guilty of a petty misdemeanor.

30-3-5. Aggravated battery.

  1. Aggravated battery consists of the unlawful touching or application of force to the person of another with intent to injure that person or another.
  2. Whoever commits aggravated battery, inflicting an injury to the person which is not likely to cause death or great bodily harm, but does cause painful temporary disfigurement or temporary loss or impairment of the functions of any member or organ of the body, is guilty of a misdemeanor.
  3. Whoever commits aggravated battery inflicting great bodily harm or does so with a deadly weapon or does so in any manner whereby great bodily harm or death can be inflicted is guilty of a third degree felony.

What’s the takeaway here?

The lessons to be learned from this incident are as follows:

FIRST, victim disarmament edicts, whether they are in the form of public-sector statutes and regulations, or a private-sector “NO WEAPONS ALLOWED” policy, don’t do much of anything to deter violent criminals from committing crimes.

If anything, they do the exact opposite — they make it easier for the criminals to victimize others.

Think of them as a sort of “workplace safety” code for the bad guys, making what are supposed to be “safe spaces” for shoppers and tourists into a  happy hunting ground for the crooks.

As the saying goes, “When seconds count, the cops are minutes away.”

But . . . but . . . what about the “NO WEAPONS ALLOWED” sign? Surely, those intent on committing assault, battery, robbery, burglary, and possibly murder will see that sign, and then leave their guns in the car, right?

Well, you see, the criminal element always seems to find that massive loophole in all of the various victim-disarmament schemes called “breaking the law.”

If they’re willing to kill you over pocket change, what makes you think that they’re going to obey your hoplophobic prohibitionary edicts?

As the saying goes, “When seconds count, the cops are minutes away.”

And the reality of it all is this: You are your own best defender. Sure, you can contract the task out to someone else, but that person wants to go home to their family, too. That person will put their own personal safety above yours, if it comes down to it.

    The only “problem” with this meme is that the rifle held by Jesus (the FN SCAR) will set you back 3,000, while a decent AR-15 / M4-pattern rifle can be purchased for under ∅1,000 MSRP.

    Which leaves you free to spend that other ∅2,000 on ammo and training.

    Help Yourself to an Abandoned Russian Tank? Why Not?

    Filed under: Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 12:50 PM

    A few days ago, Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty [RFE / RL] re-posted a video clip (“Ukrainian Tractors Versus Russian Armor”) on Facebook and YouTube

    So when the hoplophobes and victim disarmers start screeching “u think you should be able 2 own a TANK?!?!?!!!!!!” because you support civilian ownership and carriage of handguns and military-pattern rifles, you can simply point to those Ukrainian farmers making off with abandoned Russian tanks, BMPs, and trucks.

    Never mind that in the controlling precedent from American case law that “supports” their “argument,” United States v. Miller, Justice James McReynolds said that the National Firearms Act of 1934 was “Constitutional” because the sawed-off shotgun possessed by Miller didn’t qualify as a “militia weapon” protected by the Second Amendment because it didn’t have “military utility.”

    Never mind that the sawed-off shotgun could be said to have “military utility” as it was in military usage by American and ANZAC troops in World War I in the Western Front trenches. Or that many military and law-enforcement agencies have been using short-barrelled shotguns as breaching and entry weapons for close-quarter-battle stuff for the past few decades.

    Never mind that the AR-15-pattern and M4-pattern rifles that the hoplophobes and victim disarmers demand that you turn in for pennies on the FRN because they’re “weapons of war” are almost functionally identical to the M-16 / M-4-type rifles used by the U.S. Armed Forces should also be protected by the Second Amendment as per U.S. v. Miller.

    Never mind that in the same conflict that spawned the above-embedded video clip, the Zelenskyy Administration is handing out not only AK-pattern rifles and handguns (basically the same sort of rifles and pistols that the above-mentioned hoplophobes and victim disarmers want to take away from you) but also belt-fed machine guns and anti-tank rocket launchers to anyone who can carry them and is willing to use them to shoot at Russian troops.

    Side note: I have one simple question for the hoplophobes and victim disarmers who are so bravely cheering on the Ukrainian civilian resistance, yet are so insistent that American civilians voluntarily disarm:

    Why is OK for the Ukrainians to carry rifles, pistols, belt-fed machine guns and anti-tank rocket launchers, yet you have all sorts of problems with my owning or carrying my 9mm pistol here in the States?

    Actually, I suspect that there are several reasons:

    1. The Ukies are OVER THERE — several thousand miles away, out of sight and mind, with plenty of terrain features, the curvature of the Earth, etc., between them and the local Starbucks, where I, on the other hand, could be right outside that same Starbucks. No chance of them being “triggered” by the sight of armed Ukies.
    2. The Ukrainians are shooting at Russians, who are operating under the aegis of the 21st century Hitler, Vlad Putin. Trump isn’t a ready target for their ragefest, so they have to make do with Putin for the time being.

    And it seems, contrary to what the First Drooling Child-Sniffer said in 2020, American private citizens DID own not only cannon but also warships in the 18th and 19th centuries[1].

    The power of the sword, say the minority …, is in the hands of Congress. My friends and countrymen, it is not so, for The powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty. The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress has no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every terrible implement of the soldier are the birthright of Americans.
    Tench Coxe, Letter to the Pennsylvania Gazette, 20 February 1788

    Still, if you DO decide to get yourself any sort of tracked armored vehicle, have fun changing track segments and road wheels.

    THIS is Why I Own and Carry Weapons

    Filed under: History, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 11:08 PM

    Reiterating the title of this post:

    THIS is why I own and carry weapons wherever I can.

    I’m 51 years old. I’m too old and fat to do a strip-tease for some death camp guard in order to snatch his / her / xis / xer / zis / zer sidearm away.

    I’d rather have the option, at least, of taking out a bad guy with me as part of my going out of this plane of existence

    Hertfordshire Friends of Israel
    Sunday, September 22, 2019 at 4:00 AM

    Arriving at Auschwitz in 1943, Polish-Jewish ballet dancer Franceska Mann was ordered to disrobe for the crematorium.

    She took off her clothes provocatively to distract the Nazi guard, then snatched the roll-call officer’s pistol & shot him dead.

    She fired a second shot that wounded an SS sergeant. Other prisoners began a riot that was broken up when the guards opened fire with machine guns. Mann died on the spot.

    But she stood up to evil and went down with a fight!

    [Letter to ABQ City Council] Please OPPOSE O-19-82 AND O-19-83

    Filed under: Politics, Resistance, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 11:28 PM

    Date: September 21, 2020, 11:42 AM MST
    Subject: Please OPPOSE O-19-82 AND O-19-83

    Dear Councilors:

    I am writing to you in order to speak up against two pieces of proposed legislation scheduled to come before the Council today, O-19-82 and O-19-83.

    Ordinance O-19-82 will attempt to mandate secure storage of firearms.

    Ordinance O-19-83 seeks to create a city ordinance out of Keller’s questionable order banning firearms on city owned or leased properties.

    Both ordinances would violate the Constitution of the State of New Mexico, Article II, Section 6, which states:

    No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.

    A recent attempt to pass a non-binding resolution to repeal this seciton of the state Constitution failed in the council 5-4.

    Let’s make no mistake about it these proposed ordinances are in no way, shape or form about “gun safety” or “gun control”.

    True gun safety and gun control stem from the four safety rules, the seven fundamentals of marksmanship, and knowing what is and is not a legitimate target.

    If the people backing “Everytown for Gun Safety” truly care about firearms safety, then why aren’t they chipping in towards firearms safety training, as does the group they list as their archnemesis, the National Rifle Association?

    If Michael Bloomberg and the other multi-millionaires behind “Everytown for Gun Safety” truly cared about gun safety, they would put their millions behind the construction of MORE shooting ranges, and the maintenance of existing ones. They would chip in for the creation of DVDs and online video shows that provide instruction on the safe and proficient handling of firearms.

    Instead, all they do is lobby and agitate for more restrictive laws upon the pre-existing civil, Constitutional, human individual right to own and carry weapons, as supposed to be guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and Article II, Section 6 of the Constitution of the State of New Mexico.

    Rather, the legislation in question (O-19-82 and O-19-83) is more properly called “victim disarmament,” in that the people most likely to be affected by it are the people who have the most reason to own and carry firearms for self-defense — the little old lady or the paraplegic who lives alone in a bad neighborhood, the five-foot-nothing 100-pound woman being stalked by a six-foot 200-pound deranged ex-boyfriend.

    The bad people (the criminals, terrorists, and violence-inclined mental defectives) whom the proponents of this legislation say will be disarmed by it most likely will not be affected in the least. If they want access to a firearm, they will have it, by hook or by crook.

    You see, the bad guys have found this massive loophole in the existing restrictions on private civilians’ rights to own and carry weapons called “breaking the law.”

    There are already 20,000 to 25,000 existing restrictions upon the pre-existing individual, civil, Constitutional, human right to own and carry weapons, which are supposed to be guaranteed against State infringement by the Second Amendment and Article 2, Section 6 of the State Constitution. None of these anti-liberty statutes has stopped a bad guy from obtaining a firearm when they want it.

    Laws already exist that prohibit felons, domestic abusers, foreign terrorists, incurable drug abusers and alcoholics, and mental defectives from obtaining, owning or carrying firearms.

    Laws already exist that prohibit the use of firearms (and other objects) to harm other people (murder, assault with a deadly weapon, etc.).

    I think it’s safe to say that all these laws have done is keep honest people honest, the same way locks on doors do.

    Those who propose further infringements upon individual liberty aren’t truly looking to improve the human condition at all, but seeking more power over others for whatever reasons. No good will come from these infringements — no good has ever come from these sorts of laws, and no good ever will.

    As for the phrase “gun violence” —

    Why are not criminal stabbings or slashings with knives ever referred to as “knife violence” ?

    Why are hit and run murders done with cars or trucks never called “automotive violence” ?

    Why are attacks using baseball bats, pry bars, hammers and pieces of steel rebar never referred to as “blunt object violence” ?

    Look, no one is trying to take your government away. We just want to have an honest, open, adult conversation about common-sense restrictions on government. If we can save just one child from government violence, it will be worth it.

    Messing About with Article II, Section 6

    Filed under: Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:00 PM

    A few weeks ago, Albuquerque City Councilor Diane Gibson has gotten herself some no-charge campaign advertising, courtesy of the lamestream snoozemedia [1], on account of her calling for a State-level Constitutional Amendment to change Article II, Section 6 of the Constitution of the State of New Mexico from its current text:

    No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.

    — to something that gives municipal and county governments more leeway to enact victim disarmament statutes:

    No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons.

    Considering that the sorts of victim disarmament statutes desired by Gibson and her hoplophobe cronies only disarm those who need to own and carry weapons the most — the five-foot, hundred-pound woman who’s being stalked by her crazed six-foot, two-hundred-pound ex-boyfriend — and don’t actually disarm the criminal and terrorist types one bit, those of us who support and exercise the individual, civil, Constitutional, human right to own and carry weapons for “…. for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes ….” would prefer that IF Article II, Section 6 must be amended, that it should read like this afterwards:

    No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.

    “No one wants to take your guns,” NM v. 02-28-2020

    From page A15 of the Friday, 28 February 2020 edition of the Albuquerque Journal, we have not one, but two “gems of wisdom.”

    First, the writer labels anyone that owns or carries a firearm a “gun possessor,” and makes NO attempt to distinguish between criminal misuse of firearms and safe and proficient defensive uses.

    So drug testing for welfare recipients, or as a condition of employment is unConstitutional and a violation of rights, but perfectly OK if you want to purchase a firearm?

    Summing Up the Hoplophobes and Victim Disarmers in a Paragraph

    Filed under: Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:29 AM

    Today’s Albuquerque Journal, fresh from the driveway, has the following in the “Speak Up!” section of the Op-Ed page (A13)

    BACKGROUND CHECKS can help reduce mass shootings if they are combined with other strong measures. Close the loopholes and make purchases that are now legal, illegal. MY

    If that doesn’t sum up the hoplophobe and victim disarmer mindset, I don’t know what does.

    This is why I am not fond of the phrase “law-abiding” when used by right-to-own-and-carry-weapons advocates in relation to gun owners. The openly-stated intent of the victim disarmers is to make it more difficult and more expensive to own any sort of firearm in a legal manner.

    Y’all do realize that calling yourself a “law-abiding” gun owner while simultaneously sporting any “I WILL NOT COMPLY” graphics or signage is idiocy. For the very essence of “law-abiding” is compliance with every little asinine, ridiculous, burdensome edict put out by the Political Classholes?!

    Way to Start Off on the Wrong Foot

    Rather than talk about the innumerable GOOD deeds by black people over the millennia, the lefty-fascists would rather piss and moan about Whitey

    Meanwhile, Blackface Whitehood [1] continues with his plans to revive the victim disarmament aspects of the “Jim Crow” laws (most likely financed by Bloomberg and Soros) in Virginia.
