Sooo… Yeah Friday, Sep 20 2013 

So I keep saying I’m going to post more regularly… and I keep not doing it… because important milestones in my life keep happening. Yeah, it may be a bit of a drag to my one or less readers, but they are more important to me than anything in this world. Here is the brief summary:

1.) There is now a Mrs. DWH! How awesome is that!!??!! Forgive me yet? No? How about:

2.) There is also now a DWH Jr.!!!!!!!!!! The most amazing, important, and wonderful thing I (we) have ever done right! He’s a week old now and I could not ask for a better son.

 

What have I missed? A whole slew of atrocities committed by “our” government. Obamacare is good enough for us but not good enough for them or, as it happens, our economy. More mas shootings in gun free zones, Chicago is still number one but they’re down murders are down from last year. You are still number one, just not as much number one as you were. That’s something to be proud of ain’t it? Here’s a hint. NO!!!

 

I had an interest in the past about the wrong direction our country has been moving in because I was concerned about how I (and my wife) would be affected in later years. Now I have my son’s entire life to worry about. You can bet I will be involved. You can bet I will be attentive (in between diaper changes), and reactive to the things our imperial leader is issuing forth. You can bet that I will be hammering the Establishment Republican Base at the same time. The “Hollywood For Ugly People” needs a new casting director, and I am willing to be a part of that. Are you? Will you do what it takes to better this country? Not for me, my family, or my son. But for you, your family, and your child. What we do today, right now, this very minute, this very second, is what counts. Everyday.

 

Let our children learn about freedom through their own experiences, not in history books.

Gun Death: Apathy!!! Monday, Mar 4 2013 

Yes that’s right… someone’s grandmother was ALLOWED TO DIE, and refused CPR by nurses at a home because it was against policy!!! WHAT…… THE…… FUCK!!??!! Let me say that again just to make sure I said it…. WHAT…. THE…. FUCK!!??!!

I would seriously like to know why that heartless bitch of a nurse is still breathing free air. I would like to know why her boss is breathing free air. Third times a charm… WHAT…. THE…. FUCK!!??!!

The above link includes the article and also includes the recorded 911 Dispatcher BEGGING AND PLEADING with the bitch, I mean nurse bitch that stood there and refused life saving efforts for someone’s family member. I think this qualifies as unconscionable. The bitch says it is against policy. POLICY??? WHAT… THE… FUCK!!??!!

What’s worse is the facility management is backing the bitch.

I feel so sorry for the elderly woman who had to lie there, incapacitated, and afraid.

I feel so sorry her family will know that she suffered.

I feel so sorry for the dispatcher who is likely traumatized from hearing someone refuse to help when they are a trained and licensed nurse!

But rest easy folks. No gun was used, it’s OK, there’s nothing to see here, these aren’t the deaths you are looking for. Go dance in the blood of others somewhere else.

From AP:

BAKERSFIELD,  Calif. (AP) — An elderly woman being cared for at a Bakersfield retirement  facility died after a nurse at the facility refused to perform CPR on the woman  after she collapsed, authorities said.

When  the 87-year-old resident of Glenwood Gardens collapsed at the facility around 11  a.m. Tuesday, a staff member called 911 but refused to give the woman CPR,  Bakersfield television station ABC23 (http://bit.ly/YQULm3 ) reported Friday.

In  refusing the 911 dispatcher’s insistence that she perform CPR, the nurse can be  heard telling the dispatcher that it was against the retirement facility’s  policy to perform CPR.

During  the exchange between the nurse and the dispatcher, the dispatcher can be heard  saying “I don’t understand why you’re not willing to help  this patient.”

An  ambulance arrived several minutes after the call and took the woman to a  hospital, where she was later pronounced dead. She has been identified as Lorraine  Bayless, a resident of the home’s independent facility, which is separate  from the skilled and assisted nursing facility.

The  retirement facility released a statement extending its condolences to the family  and said its “practice is to immediately call emergency medical personnel for  assistance and to wait with the individual needing attention until such  personnel arrives.”

The  statement also said a “thorough internal review of the matter” would  be conducted.

A  call to the facility by The  Associated Press seeking more information on the incident was not  immediately returned.

I don’t know about you, but I certainly hope there is a criminal act here and the punishment should fit the crime. Heartless, Apathetic, and… I can’t describe the disgust I feel.

UPDATE: It wasn’t a nurse. It was a “resident services director”, so replace all “nurse” and “bitch” sections of this story to resident services director and bitch. Thank you for your time.

The pen is mightier than the… Wednesday, Feb 20 2013 

no it isn’t. Unfortunately Colorado Senator Jesse Ulibarri obviously thinks they are. Obviously I think he’s a dumbass. A pen would be as effective against rape as the laws that are already in place. Oh wait… only law abiding citizens don’t rape people? Imagine that! I bet Jesse just wants you to have a pen handy after he rapes you (figurative?) so he can be prepared to sign autographs. I’m not a Colorado resident. Nor will I ever be. But I propose this:

Everyone send Jesse a pack of ink pens with a note explaining how gun owners are as concerned for his safety as they are their own. After all, he’s a human being too. A dumbass, but a human being none-the-less. I’ll be sending him a pack of Skillcraft pens this week.

His office address is:

Senator Jesse Ulibarri

200 E. Colfax Avenue, Room 339
Denver CO 80205

Just one last note to Jesse… Mr. Senator, stop being a dick. Granted it’s not required to commit rape in any form, but just stop being a dick.

 

All due respect (which ain’t much),

I’m Pregnant!!??!! Wednesday, Feb 20 2013 

Well sort of… Mrs. DWH is WITH CHILD!!! Yes, this means I (of all people) am going to be not just a Father, but a Dad! IMHO there is a vast difference. I have some good experience with children from age 2 and up (that sounds like a child safety thingy on a toy; DWH… Recommended for children ages two and up.).

Now down to business AND A FEW QUESTIONS FOR THE EXPERIENCED!

I am, in a word, Blessed, Excited, Happy, Overjoyed, and, well, you get the point. I have always been driven to be a family man. There is a certain sense of completion in it for me and while I hope for a boy to carry on the family name, I am also excited to have a girl. Even if that means I am going to prison, I have time to plan ahead ;). I have a problem though. I have all of the advice in the world in what to do for my loving wife which simply translates to, “What ever she wants”. I know I need to have thick skin in dealing with hormones. I was a medic in the Army and I understand the physical and mental changes which can come about during pregnancy and that it is different for each woman and each time for that matter. That said… I am looking for a book. One that addresses pregnancy from a Christian Male perspective. A Constitutional perspective would be nice. A Conservative perspective would be helpful as well. I’ve read books on pregnancy from (some) women’s perspective and, quite frankly, they seem quite biased. A whole book that says suck it up, you are male, it’s your fault, be a slave, wah wah wah, give her what she wants, take crap from her forever, you penis-slinging dream killer.

Now that everyone on the planet thinks I am a complete pig, let me say this. I clean the house, I take care of the laundry, I do the grocery shopping, I take care of the pets, and I see to it that Mrs. DWH has all of the support she needs. My family contributes as well during my work hours. I tell her she is beautiful because she is. I tell her I love her because I do. I tell her I appreciate her because it’s more true than I can convey in words. Her job…. Grow our baby. I’ll take care of the rest.

I am more cautious of EVERYTHING. I am more protective of everything I care about.

Apparently I am pregnant too. I’m hungry all the time, can’t sleep, uncomfortable in my own skin, have cravings, I am occasionally moody, and more. I am not trying to trivialize the circumstance, I truly am experiencing these things albeit probably on a considerably smaller scale.

I have simple dreams for our child right now. Be healthy, be good, be nice, be responsible, be yourself. Simple dreams with very complex solutions to make them come true.

Today, I focus on being blessed, and celebrating the coming of this child in God’s Glory. Tomorrow there will be more, and I’m looking forward to every moment of it.

 

With great awe,

ZOMG Zombies are real in Montana!!! Monday, Feb 11 2013 

Apparently someone hacked the KRTV Emergency Broadcast System in Montana and this was the result!

Yeah… Very Funny… Clever… Cute… AND Dangerous!

I’ll give you points for being original and using a good topic, but you get my douchebag of the day award for endangering lives and breaking the law. Clever, yet stupid.

Geronimo!!!! Wednesday, Feb 6 2013 

Yes folks…. I am taking the leap. I’m gettin honest. I’m taking the plunge. I’m settling down. Gettin hitched.

 

I’m getting married!!!! Tuesday! February 12th!

 

While the wedding won’t be much for pomp and circumstance, the marriage is what is important to both of us right now. A full-fledged ceremony will come next year, where I am honored to have WizardPC from Guns, Cars, & Tech as my best man.

 

When I proposed… I took her out to a little club. I know one of the members of the house band there. I asked him to get the band to learn a song for me. They did. I sang it and then I proposed. SHE SAID YES!!! I do not have the words to describe the honor, appreciation, and love that I feel for her.

Here’s a link to the song I sang…

“You Have That Effect On Me”, by Brad Paisley. (Tell me that isn’t a good song to propose with!)

What media Bias??? Tuesday, Feb 5 2013 

Linoge, over at Walls of the City, looks at Bill Stevens, a Newtown resident who has a daughter who survived the massacre there. But you won’t hear his story in the mainstream media. You won’t hear his logical input on CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, BSNBC. You won’t hear his talking points being voiced to the POTUS or his regime administration. You won’t know that he, despite the serious emotional involvement, can stand up and apply common sense to this atrocity and others like it. You can’t possibly know that he can see clearly that infringing upon our inalienable rights won’t do one single solitary lick of good or prevent one single unprovoked act of violence. In fact, the only thing you will learn is infringing on his rights, their rights, YOUR rights will only serve to increase the likelihood of that event being repeated with perhaps more atrocity.

Mr. Stevens,

A heart-felt thank you for standing your ground, defending the Constitution, representing the majority of Patriots, and pointing out that our children and everyone else deserve, and have the right to the same protection our elected officials and their families receive. Thank you for pointing out that this is but one example that shows our elected officials refuse to practise what they preach because they’re too busy looking for ways to apply the rules to the peasantry without having to follow the rules themselves. Thank you for your courage and your voice. You were heard. We are listening. Stay the course!

God bless you and Victoria,

Ohhh!!! A local Blogershoot perhaps??!!?? Monday, Feb 4 2013 

Oddball over at Guns, Cars, Tech is thinking about a possible bloggershoot in “our” area! I’m all in, schedule, family, life, work permitting ;).

 

DWH

So….. Tuesday, Jan 29 2013 

I’ve been busy. God has made MANY plans for me as of late. 1.) I will have a Mrs. DWH very soon (she said YES!!!). My favorite quote from her: “If it’s pointy, goes bang, or blows up… I like it!”. 2.) Working on many home repairs that are loooooooooong overdue. 3.) I am picking up where I left off with my firearms projects.

happily, I am back here at DWH and will be off the bench and back in the ball game. I’m not going to worry about what has happened in our once-great-government. We all know about it, and I’m only going to beat that dead horse if I know that the spatter will hit the responsible parties. I am forward focussed and determined.

Unfortunately for repairs and projects… I am a civil service employee… I have no money… if all of you want to see me and future Mrs. DWH living in a nice home and you want to see more successful projects completed with any expedience… send me your non-tax-deductible-donations.

I didn’t think so, but I figure the government can get away with it… why can’t I? Oh, I tend to forget that they are just like you and me… only better.

Get Ready for the Storm… Tuesday, Jan 29 2013 

… no, actually, a real storm!

It’s January. It’s Tennessee. And there is inclement weather en route. Keep the news on. Pay attention to your NOAA Weather, BUT the National Weather Service is reporting technical difficulties with that system so you will need an alternate source. Bad timing, but that’s the case.

Know your emergency plan. NOW would be a good time to rehearse that plan before the circus starts. Check and make sure your essentials are easily accessed and have your “go bag” ready. It might even be a good idea to have it where you intend to take shelter.

1.) Be safe.

2.) Be prepared.

3.) Stay ALERT

4.) Stay ALIVE.

5.) Be safe.

6.) Be safe.

7.) BE SAFE!!!

AFTER ACTION: I stayed up and kept an eye on the weather. My educated guess was spot on. As soon as the local weather station said my county was under a Tornado Warning the power shut off. I grabbed my flashlight, walked down the hall, woke up my future Mrs. DWH and we went downstairs to the basement and called the dog. Man’s best friend came down without reluctance and both cats were on her heels (yup, my cats come when you call them). The fish… they’re on their own. As we settled in downstairs, I lit the candle to conserve battery life and offered my future Mrs. DWH the chair. The dog and cats curled up together (they like each other… mostly) on her doggie bed, and we waited. And waited. Annnnnd waited. We noted some very strong winds and even stronger gusts, not to mention the periodic extremely heavy rain fall. The National Weather Service is investigating multiple “possible tornadoes” and two have been confirmed as EF0 tornadoes and there is a confirmed EF2 in a county not too far south of my home. We went back upstairs about an hour and a half later after all of the Tornado Warnings expired and the heavy part of the storm had passed. She went back to bed. I checked the house, put away candles and chairs, and conducted a quick internal and external inspection of the house. Then I, thankfully, was able to go to sleep when the power came back on about 30 minutes after the last warning expired.

Two hours of lost sleep is very inconvenient. So is death because we didn’t pay attention to those who know far more about severe weather than I do. I’ll take the two hours happily. I’ll take the pride that I own up to my responsibility as protector of my castle. Not just from an intruder or politician, but from all threats, be they foreign, domestic, or natural.

Folks, make no mistake, we were blessed last night. More so than some others. But part of that is because we have a plan and take precautions. “God helps those who help themselves”.

For your family’s sake….

Make a plan.

Practice a plan regularly.

Prepare to execute your plan.

It is a small amount of time for you to invest that can save an eternity for you AND you family.

On Castro… Monday, Oct 22 2012 

Has anyone noticed that the folks over at the Communist News Network are equally pushing the news piece about the election AND the news piece concerning the health of Fidel Castro? They’re practically doing a “feel good” piece on the former Communist Dictator of Cuba! But, as we all already know, they’re completely unbiased. Completely. Really… They are. I’m serious… Not really though.

You ARE the difference!!! Monday, Oct 22 2012 

The election for POTUS is almost upon us, and while the only difference between them and younger children this time of year is most kids take their masks off after they have collected their candy loot, it is time to hold ourselves accountable by voting our conscience. Whichever candidate you choose, your responsibility does not end once the lever is pulled. It ends with the next election. Hold your candidate responsible!!!

I voted… You should too. It’s that simple.

And so it begins… Friday, Oct 12 2012 

Imagine my surprise when I hear the following comments from the amazingly wonderful lady in my life. We decided to watch a movie at home and first decided on a horror film given the season. Then I suggested a James Bond film…

During the intro… “where are all of the women? There are supposed to be women in the opening sequence! Oh, there they are.”

“as long as I get to see people shooting and stuff getting blown up!”

After the movie… “I like guns… And knives… And hatchets, hand grenades, stuff that blows up and goes bang.”

 

She’s either a serial killer or my dream woman!!!

Today we managed to get her a Taurus Tracker 922. It has a 4″ barrel and comes with a .22lr cylinder and a .22 Magnum cylinder. I also obtained a Gen 4 Glock 19.

And so it has begun…

And the truth… Monday, Oct 8 2012 

… has set me free!!! Not too long after my last post (which was entirely too long ago, meh) I learned a great number of truths about my ex. Suffice it to say she’s a liar and a cheat. I’ve been done with it for some time. I learned to live again, and then God stepped in and blessed me with a wonderful woman that I hadn’t seen since high school. Good grief I am old! She’s Godly, beautiful, kind, giving, and so much more that I can’t even begin to contemplate fully. She is also into preparedness. Being a mother, she already has the idea and the basics are covered. We are working on organizing that a little more. I am definitely going to be back here regularly unless her cooking prevents me from moving, which is quite possible.

I am back to carrying regularly, and there has been a rediscovery of how Constitutionally free I truly am. 

More to come…. Very soon!

Tennessee HCP Stats: Winning!!! Saturday, Mar 10 2012 

Over at Legally Armed they posted how many Handgun Carry Permits have been issued and held in each of the 95 Counties in the State of Tennessee. They posted these in ranking (raw number of permits held). I decided to expand on that a little and compare the number of permits per county and what percentage that represents per county based on the 2010 Census of each county. One mathmatical consideration: This does not take into account any criminal population, minor child population, or other variable so the percentage for “Eligible Permit Holders” would be a little higher.

LAKE 282 7,832 4%

Our winner by percentage is Fayette County with 10% of their population being armed!!! Outstanding job to you country folk out there for observing your Constitutional Rights!

Our Loser is Metropolitan Nashville/Davidson County. Yes, our State Capital is rock bottom at 3%.

The statewide average comes out to (rounded up) 6% which places Davidson County at one half of the state average and Fayette at almost DOUBLE the state average!

While it is fairly obvious that the more densely populated counties have high HCP issuances, it is very nice to see a fairly good spread among one county and its neighboring counties. Even on a regional level (East/Middle/West) there is a fair amount of consistancy. I will leave the rest to more statistical minds to determine growth by county, and other details that would be great to see.

Hope this was an interesting read and that you enjoyed it and H/T to Legally Armed for the raw data!

Carry your gun, get your permit, and like my Dad always said, “Be nice” because a winner should always be nice. It shows good sportsmanship!!!

What I have missed…. Sunday, Mar 4 2012 

So I’ve been out of the blog due to the blahs and work for a longer-than-desired period of time and I keep hearing in the back of my head, “The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters!” so I will not offer any save, the past week has been a difficult one in the field of emergency management in Tennessee. We’ve had a few tornadoes, some of which caused fatalities across the state. It’s heartbreaking, but I, and many, many others have a job to do. There will be time for “decompression” later. 12 hour shifts, with altered schedules, and altered days off contribute to little time with family, the stress within the family due to lack of quality time, and the stress with coworkers for the increase in “quality time” and high intensity “battle rhythm” that changes, at times, on the hour. What I have missed…

School shooting in Ohio… which has been well covered from the likes of Weer’d, Wizardpc & Oddball, Linoge at WOTC, Uncle, and many more. Bottom line here is the kid was troubled, has a juvenile record, broadcast his intentions, and no one did a thing or took a hint that it would happen. While it makes him no less guilty, there are many more who are at fault.

New Madrid Earthquake… On 02/21/12 a 3.9 magnitutude earthquake was recorded by the USGS and CUSEC. Not a big shaker, but a little warning message for those in 5 state region who should be considerably more aware and have a rehearsed plan of action should a stronger quake occur. It is simply not a matter of if, but when. The USGS claims we are long overdue. Be prepared.

Politics… Second Verse, same as the First!

Severe Weather… Tornadoes in TN, KY, AL, GA, IL, IN, and OH. If you haven’t prepared a plan and implemented it, then you are wrong. Remember that your life, and the lives of those you care about are in a severe weather lottery. You could be the next big looser! I’ve mentioned it once already, but it bodes well to read Being Prepared for Tornadoes one more time. The state of TN lost three souls on Feb 29th. It’s a small number, unless you or someone you love is one of those three. Please have a plan in place. It may seem silly until you consider the alternative.

That about sums it up. No need to mention Joan Peterson or her little anti-rights minions. A leopard doesn’t change its spots… or stop the candle lighting blood dances. “Because you suck and we hate you”… Not just for HK anymore.

I hope you all were not directly affected by the severe weather events, or any other negative event, and that you all remain vigilant and safe,

P.S.: I have a friend who works outside and is extremely terrified of tornadoes due to past experiences. He would text me constantly on Friday asking if he was safe. I told him to take cover once. He did, wisely, and was able to avoid some small amount of disaster. Around 5:45 PM he sent the following text… “Getting dark again here what’s the word?” to which I replied… “It’s night-time dumbass.” Sometimes even a tornado can be humorous… DWH

Gun Death: Daughters… Sunday, Feb 19 2012 

I discovered this one over at Weerd’s blog and decided my comment over there was just snarky enough to repost over here. Here it is:

I am going to start the Coalition Against Hand Violence (CAHV) and fight as hard as I can, regardless of the facts, to ban all hands from the world, because hands kill people. They kill men, women, children, blacks, whites, and everyone else without discrimination. I am certain there will be resistance from the “right” because they think hands are a basic right even though the Constitution is out dated and the 6th Amendment just doesn’t apply anymore because hands were different back then. I don’t care that there are billions of law abiding citizens around the world that have hands that never kill people with them, because someday they might have an accident and use them to kill someone.

Of course that applies to everyone else. I will have body guards with hands to protect me and my hands. I will buy legislators who can exempt me when the laws pass. Before the laws pass I will invest all of my money in healthcare and cutlery.

Join me and we can end hand violence! All you have to do is cut off your hands and we can all get along and live in my happy little dream world. The weather is great here!

meh, nevermind… I like it here all by myself. I don’t think I could stand Joan Peterson liking the idea and tagging along. I still don’t like hand violence though.

I wonder how many people I could convice to cut off their hands, despite logic. I figure if the anti-rights goblins can try it with guns, I should be able to have some measure of success. It would be an interesting sociological experiment. It would make it damn hard for someone with no hands to light a candle wouldn’t it?

What Brady Thinks of Your Rights… Saturday, Feb 18 2012 

First, I apologize for using the words “Brady” and “Think” in the same sentence. I know these two words create a logical discourse.

The Brady Campaign has posted their 2012 scores for each of the 50 states (excluding DC) for “proper” gun laws for each state. The higher the score, the better for those who would subvert your rights under the US Constitution. For us the lower the score, the more we may observe our Constitutional Rights without fear of the heel of Big Brother’s Jack Boot kicking us in the head. I was honestly a little disappointed to see that Tennessee actually scored an 8. Yes, it’s a low number but it should be zero. Then again, that is also it’s own testament to our state’s politicians. We have a Republican controlled House AND Senate, along with a Republican Governor. Many of which ran with a conservative base. Did I mention they are politicians?

Something worth mentioning here is that California only scored an 81. That’s right, a high number, but think about how much the average California citizen’s Rights are subverted. Think about that for a minute…. Now that you’ve recovered from that cold chill running down your spine and that gut wrenching feeling similar to when your significant other told you “We need to talk”… The Brady folks think that level of subversion is only 81% from where they want it to be. What they want is total control via total dependency because they think they know what is best for you and they think you are too stupid to be burdened with making those decisions on your own. Looking at it from this logical perspective, the State of Tennessee is 92% away from total control and government dependency (whew). However, that perspective would also conclude that California is only 19% away from total control and government dependency.

This is all based on a scale which “works” as follows:

So they are perfectly willing to show us that they have their own personal interest in subverting the Constitutional Rights of citizens on a national scale. They are showing you a scoring system that indicates where and how they feel they have made progress in determining what is best for you without considering “you” in the process because you are too stupid to know what is good for you. It’s evident in their language (certainly not in their logic) how they wish to tilt the scales in favor of the criminal in order to prevent ever having to light a candle for one of them ever again because, of course, you are too stupid to matter. You don’t understand that protecting yourself, family, and others is just mean and wrong. You don’t know what’s good for you because the intellectual elite say so despite all of the facts that are contrary to what they know to be true. See for yourself:

Curb Firearm Trafficking (Maximum 35 Points) does not say “Curb CRIMINAL Firearm trafficking”. The “Gun Dealer Regulations” category implies that a dealer should be required to obtain a license to sell a gun to someone. However, no license is required for other objects which are as likely to harm or kill someone when used illegally or with negligence. Unconstitutional. Reporting records to the state? Why? The state government or federal government has no grounds here. This is merely a way for them to subvert anyones Rights to be “secure in their papers” under the 6th Amendment. No one should be required to turn over ANY documentation involved in their business or personal lives for ANY reason without probable cause that they are committing a crime. Unconstitutional. Mandatory reporting of theft of a firearm? If you don’t like it, and you don’t care if someone else took it then you should have discretion about reporting it. Police have discretion about prosecuting a crime and so does the district attorney’s office, so why should a citizen be any different? Like them, only better. Unconstitutional. Requiring at least one security precaution? Yeah, simple, if they’re acting weird or give some indication that they’re gonna do something bad… then don’t sell them a firearm, or a car, or a knife, or a baseball bat, or a cookie. You get the point. Unconstitutional. Inspections by police??!!?? Are you nuts! Firstly let’s go back to the 6th Amendment. It’s none of their damn business unless I am breaking the law or I have given sufficient probable cause. The police can inspect my gun after I have had the unfortunate occasion to use it to protect myself, family, or someone else. Otherwise… Unconstitutional. Limiting bulk purchases… because two is bulk in a month, right? It’s no ones business but mine if I wish to buy one firearm or 100 firearms in a month unless there is probable cause as defined in the 6th Amendment. Again, unconstitutional. Crime gun identification such as ballistic fingerprinting and microstamping…. doesn’t work, is very expensive to all parties involved, and isn’t necessary. While it isn’t unconstitutional as I see it, it IS ineffective and inefficient.

The Section “Strengthen Brady Background Checks (Maximum 40 Points)”  has one small hint of merit. Before you go and get your stuff all bunched up finish reading. I like background checks for all firearms sales excluding person to person sales. It is a way to do our part to keep firearms out of the hands of felons. That is to say it prevents felons from acquiring a firearm in any additional way than the illegal means in which they currently obtain them. That’s the only merit. If you want to buy a firearm, then you do a background check to make sure you’re not a felon. If you are, you can go to jail for the attempt. If not, then great AND THEN THE PAPERWORK IS NOT REQUIRED TO BE MAINTAINED IN THE INTEREST OF GOVERNMENT SNOOPING. Regarding person to person sales. I, personally, require a background check be conducted if I sell a gun to someone I don’t know. It’s for my piece of mind. I don’t, however, think that the government should regulate piece of mind. That is a moral obligation. Having said that, it still debunks the “loophole” crap that the anti-rights folks are all up in arms about. Otherwise, for the government to require it would be unconstitutional.

In the “Permit to Purchase (Maximum 21 Points)” portion of the Brady Thought control process they simply require you to get a permit (I’m sure it would be a “May Issue” permit) in order to observe your God-given Right to keep and bear arms. This is in every way, with no exception, unconstitutional. Again, there are some things here that make sence on a moral level, but not something that would support unconstitutional legislation. I would always hope that people who observe their Constitutional Rights under the 2A would be respectful enough of themselves and others by training in the safe practices of using, maintaining, and respecting firearms, but to regulate it with laws would be unconstitutional. A license to possess a firearm… we’ve covered that. I don’t need one for other Rights given to me by God himself, so this one should be no different. I don’t need a 3+ day waiting period for my 2A rights either. This accomplishes nothing but to successfully waste gas, time, and other resources in an effort to use this as a slippery slope to subvert our rights. Permits for ammunition are no better and equally unconstitutional. Ammunition is an integral part of a firearm. To regulate one is to regulate the other. neither is acceptable as they are both unconstitutional. Fingerprinting is unconstitutional also unless you’ve broken the law to an extent that requires such a thing. My fingerprints belong to me and you can not have them for your records because I am purchasing and/or legally using something you don’t like. It is unconstitutional because you are forcing me to give you part of my person for something that is legal to do when you have no probable cause under the 6A. That would be… wait for it… unconstitutional. Involving law enforcement. As I have stated before, I am not doing anything illegal, so it’s none of their business. I am not committing a crime and therefore it is not within their area of expertise. To require this implies that I “Might” do something illegal and the last time I checked we do not live within the script of the Minority Report and that makes it, say it with me friends… unconstitutional.

 Ammunition Regulations (Maximum 2 Points)  

have been covered here also. They are part of a firearm and are subject to the same requirements under the 2A, which is to say the government and the anti-rights crowd should be required only to back off and leave our rights alone. To do anything else would be, and has been, unconstitutional.

Ban Assault Weapons (Maximum 10 Points)

Assault Weapons Ban (Maximum 5 Points)

Large Capacity Magazine Ban (Maximum 5 Points)

Do I really need to go into how the so-called assault weapons formula has no realistic, accurate, or functional bearing on any firearms argument what-so-ever? Do I need to post the “barrel shroud” video? Do we need to discuss how there is no difference in the ammunition capacity of a magazine when being used lawfully and how restricting it only further victimizing the law abiding citizen? I didn’t think so. 

Child Safety (Maximum 7 Points)

Child Safety Locks (Maximum 5 Points)

Child Access Prevention (Maximum 2 Points)

Again, this has been covered in the moral obligation for the safety and use of firearms. Moral, not legal. Do we really need to discuss how this would be otherwise unconstitutional?

Guns in Public Places and Local Control (Maximum 8 Points)

No Guns in Workplace (Maximum 2 Points)

No Guns on College Campuses (Maximum 2 Points)

A business does not have the right, and neither does the government, to infringe upon my constitutional rights because they don’t want me to have a gun on what is publicly accessible, yet privately owned property unless they are willing to accept complete responsibility for my safety and well being while traveling to their property, the duration that I am on their property, and the trip back home. Even then, they can not give me back my life should I lose it, so any other argument is pointless in the face of the Constitution. The same can be said about a college campus.

Not A CCW Shall Issue State (Maximum 2 Points)

Law enforcement discretion when issuing CCW permits is again, outside of their realm, and further a slippery slope designed to subvert our rights. Not wanting a “Shall Issue” law simply implies that “May Issue” is the liberal attempt to secretly subvert your rights because the discretion would be up to the police and the liberal left, which means you won’t get one unless you were a campaign contributor. Even then those idiots that made a substantial contribution are buying into subverting their own rights under the constitution when if they supported the conservative, then they could do the same thing for free. The definition of idiocy and… unconstitutional.

No State Preemption (Maximum 2 Points)

Local control of gun regulations creates inconsistency which results in uneven application of the law in the state and federal government. That, by definition is pure and simple racism that is reflective of the Jim Crow laws, which by the way, were declared unconstitutional.

Extra Credit/Demerit

Extra Credit (2 Points)

 Extra credit for subverting our Constitutional Rights? Are you really that stupid that you would broadcast that on the interwebs? If you didn’t notice, the police are charged with disarming those who are not allowed to have firearms because they are felons. If you think that your laws would cause a felon to register a gun so the law could come pick it up, then I can stop now and change “we are winning” to “we have won” because you logic is quite the opposite, which makes you a complete and blithering moron.

Demerit

So we lose points (and become lesser in the eyes of the Anti… which I like) for not allowing doctors to ask about gun ownership and for not requiring a permit to carry and observe the 2A. Now those are two laws that I would encourage my representative to vote for. Why? Because those laws are CONSTITUTIONAL. They don’t violate anyone’s Rights. Imagine that.

 

 

On a separate issue, my post seems to have a bit of a mind of its own. There are some areas within this post that insist on being typed in Bold and I can’t convince it to do otherwise. Please accept my apologies for the strain on your eyes this may have caused.

I hope you have enjoyed the long read. It should compensate for my lack of recent posting.

Stay safe, carry your guns, use a holster, remember the four rules, never quit,

News Media, Earthquakes, and me… Tuesday, Feb 7 2012 

I am not a fan of the camera. Even if it’s for a good cause. That being said, it seems that part of my job description is that I may wind up on camera. Fortunately for me I don’t have to speak. This segment is for Earthquake awareness week here in the great state of Tennessee. It is the perfect example of what kind of emergency you need to prepare yourself and your family for. I will be writing on that when I am a little more conscious and alert.

Note: 200 years ago today an earthquake in the New Madrid Seismic Zone (estimated between 7.4 to 8.0 on the Richter scale) caused the Mississippi River to backflow for a time, and reportedly rung church bells in Boston, MA. Due to the geographic make up of the Eastern and Southeastern US a 7.5 magnitude earthquake will cause an estimated 8 times the amount of damage as the same quake in California’s San Andreas Seismic Zone. An earthquake of that magnitude will also travel significantly further in the Eastern and Southeastern regions of the US. So, yet another reason for Conservatives to leave the Memphis area, which will likely have a liquefaction rate of about 100%. In other words, it will be completely gone and probably have a high casualty and injury rate.

Additional Note: I am NOT telling you which one I am in the video.

TSA: Teaching People How To Spot Terrorists… Saturday, Feb 4 2012 

….bwaaaaaahahahahahahahaha…choke…gasp…snarf!!!!

At the Superbowl no less.

Like they have done such a bang up job of it. If it were a class teaching how to molest a teenager and arrest her mother for speaking out, stripsearch elderly grandmas, or identify an old west gun design on a purse, or conduct a cupcake threat assessment.

Maybe I’m just not supposed to understand. ***Facepalm***

And now for my 100th blog!!! Sunday, Jan 29 2012 

I was thinking to myself about four blog posts ago that I need to blog about something passionate and significant on my 100th post. I’ve been thinking about what that would be. I came up with this….

 

Beavis and Butthead in real life. That’s right. Someone not only made the real life style version of Beavis and Butthead, but also managed to auction them off for $14,000! That’s right, 14 large. Who, one might ask, would pay that much money for, well, that? A computer programmer in Tennessee no less.

I can’t help but think my good friend wizardpc has these stashed in his gun room. If he places them outside, at least it will keep the crows away.

Gun Death: Explosives Saturday, Jan 28 2012 

Student brags to police that he is smarter than the killers in the Columbine massacre. That’s why he told someone he was going to do it before he did it. Then he was caught and no one was killed or injured. Someone MUST have had a candle.
