Civil Rights Victory

Via Joe:

“[T]he Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals let stand a December ruling by a three-judge panel of the court that forces Illinois to adopt a concealed carry law, thus affirming that the right to bear arms exists outside the home.

As Joe notes:

This is a stepping stone to slap down California, New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Washington D.C., Maryland, and others that have “May Issue” permitting for carry. It may even enable nationwide Constitutional Carry.

Hooray for civil rights!

 

The Crazy Left and Their Self Defense Ideas

The Left wants you to defend yourself with anything but a firearm. Jay provides list and linkage.

A firearm is a tool. Yes, it can be used for “bad” things. Yes, it can be used for “good” things. In the end, what matters is intent and use.

I assure you, as my daughter gets older, I will not teach her that screaming and using a rape whistle while urinating on herself are appropriate self defense methods. I will teach her to use the tool that most effectively equalizes power differences.

 

But, If It’s Good Information…

Then why not leave it up? The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Department of Public Safety had 10 tips for women to prent rape:

1. Be realistic about your ability to protect yourself.
2. Your instinct may be to scream, go ahead!  It may startle your attacker and give you an opportunity to run away.
3. Kick off your shoes if you have time and can’t run in them.
4. Don’t take time to look back; just get away.
5. If your life is in danger, passive resistance may be your best defense.
6. Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating.
7. Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.
8. Yelling, hitting or biting may give you a chance to escape, do it!
9. Understand that some actions on your part might lead to more harm.
10. Remember, every emergency situation is different.  Only you can decide which action is most appropriate.

Unfortunately, UCCS no longer thinks that this is sound advice as they’ve pulled it from their website:

Why So Many Guns?

Guns Holsters and Gear has provided an excellent three-part series based on the question, “Why so many guns?”

Part I provides an overview of gun ownership and the various reasons for it.

Part II discusses handguns.

Part III discusses rifles and shotguns.

All three are good reads.

Contact Your US Senator!!!

Sebastian says the fight is shaping up in the Senate. I echo his call:

Every gun owner’s voice must be heard…STARTING WITH YOURS!!!

Call the Capitol Hill switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for your Senators by name. Or, email your Senators by going to NRA-ILA’s “Let Your Voice Be Heard” webpage.

He continues:

We are not facing the anti-gun crowd, save Bloomberg. We’re facing the left-wing of the Democratic Party, and they mean to destroy us. They are betting this trend is real, that the country will be increasingly urban, left of center, and more in favor of gun control. They are betting the farm that we’re on our way to extinction. Are we?

Do. Your. Part.

 

Getting Involved

Remington Golden Saber Black Belt Ammo

Well this looks interesting. Rather than jumping on the bonded bullet bandwagon, Remington simply bands the brass jacket to the lead core.

A lot of people like Golden Sabers. I wonder if they’ll readily accept this modification/improvement.
