Zimmerman and the Aftermath

Ok, I have to get in on this. I’ve been trying not to but I can’t keep silent any longer. Needless to say, I’m thrilled for Mr Zimmerman. He was a victim of caring about his neighborhood. The man was on the neighborhood watch in a crime ridden area. Did he sit on his couch and, figuratively, give his block the bird? Nope. He made sure he could defend his home and then set out to help others. The man should be commended but instead the President of the United States is speaking out against him.

The media, the president, and the Jesse Jackson crowd have turned this into a racial issue where there wasn’t one. It’s become a “Get Whitie” parade. Has anyone even told999032_447355755372020_1313739665_n these morons that Zimmerman is Hispanic? Is there anyone even attempting to have a little common sense? Not on the left. They even insulted the man by calling him a “white hispanic”. What the hell is that about?

For the worthless left wing, I’ll say this once…so pay attention. This is NOT a racial issue.

Like many of you, I’ve read the comments of the pro-Trayvon¬† protestors. Sorry, but not being a bigot and looking at all people like they are….people….and not a skin color alone is enough. How about you get off your lazy asses and do something with your lives. The only one holding you back is you. You get treated with the respect you EARN.

That’s all I’m going to say about that.

Now, let’s get to the real heart of this issue. This has nothing to do with anything the mainstream media is telling you about. This is a self protection issue, plain and simple. This isn’t about Trayvon or Zimmerman. This is about whether a man has the right to stand up to the crime in his neighborhood, do so within the confines of the law, and if needed protect his life.

Did Zimmerman have the right to patrol his neighborhood? Yes. Did he have the right to carry a gun? Yes. Did he have the right to tell some punk kid to get away from his ZIMMERMAN-SMILING-600x417neighbor’s homes? Yes. Did he have the right to, and was it legal to, shoot a kid bashing in his brains? YES. These are the only issues of this case. It doesn’t matter how much pigment is in anyone’s skin. According to Florida law Zimmerman did absolutely nothing wrong, he never should have been put in jail, and this never should have went to trial.

The fact of the matter is that you have the God given right to protect yourself. This isn’t governed by race, creed, or sexual orientation. None of that crap matters. Every human being deserves the right to defend themselves from harm. They deserve to protect the ones they love or even perfect strangers from harm. When you have a pot-head of any age and any skin color trying to bash your head in…you have the natural right to protect yourself even to the point of bloodshed.

This case is about the right to guard your life. The media portrayed Trayvon as a teenager out for a snack. What they refuse to tell you is that there was THC in his system. That means the kid was either high or had been earlier. We all know that dope does mellow you out….but also makes you paranoid. So we have a paranoid kid trying to stay out of the rain and a well meaning guy too stupid to stay in his car. It’s a recipe for disaster.

When did the advent of civil rights change to mean that because you’re black that you deserve special rights that only the white man doesn’t get? Everything I learned about Martin Luther King said that he wanted men to be judged by WHO they are, not what color their skin is. I think he would roll over in his grave if he knew what was going on today. He wanted the black community to be able to retain dignity as human beings and not be down trodden because of having more pigment in their skin than another man. Having his daughter call the Zimmerman verdict “it’s ’63 all over again”….I think he would be ashamed. He wouldn’t have wanted a guilty verdict on an innocent man simply because the case also included a black kid. I would even go as far as to say that had there been a guilty verdict it would have been a national tragedy for civil rights because if all men don’t have equal civil rights then none of us have them. I would have said that in ’63 and I’m saying it now. If only a privileged class has civil rights then they don’t exists.

Look, do I think Zimmerman did everything right? No. What no one outside of the firearm community realizes it but Zimmerman was being tried in two courts. Both of his peers. One, in a court of law. The other in the eyes of the shooter’s community. As far as how Florida law is written…he did nothing wrong. However, in the court of his shooting peers…he’s guilty of stupidity. We’re just lucky that they haven’t made stupidity illegal…yet.

Let’s do our homework, let’s get training, and know we’re legally in the right if we ever have to defend ourselves. My hope for all of you…is to NEVER need to use your training. Stay safe.

Ask Gundoc

gundoctor1.jpg

Yes…for this one I an resurrecting the first graphic I made for this blog back in 2007.

Recently I was asked by Politics and Guns podcast to have a regular spot on the show. What is it, you ask? To do exactly what I am most qualified to talk about. It’s your chance to ask questions of the world famous Gundoc. All questions will be addressed…to a point. Nothing dirty….I know everyone wants a piece of the Gundoc but let’s keep on topic here.

So I’m asking you, my personal audience, to email Brian with any gun or gunsmithing questions you may have. We will make this a weekly spot as long as we have questions coming in…and as long as we come up with worthwhile topics to speak on. I would really like this to be a permanent thing but that depends on all of you. I have a blast putting these spots together and want to keep it up so let’s hear it folks. Hit me with your best questions.

Send your questions and feedback (I’m a feedback-monger so let me know what you think of the spot) to Brain’s email (brian@politicsandguns.com) and we’ll rock a podcast spot just for you.

Is the Media Coming Around???

The question needs to be asked. For the last 5+ years we’ve been pounding the pulpit trying to get their attention. Now with the IRS scandal coming out we have some of the liberal media questioning their own stance. First off…I love it. It’s about freaking time but is it enough to wake them up? Take a look;

Even Piers Morgan? The British backstabber actually starting to see a crack in his logic. So, let’s hear it…are we seeing a small wake up? I’m really hoping so. I won’t get my hopes up too high but it seems like they are at least asking themselves some questions. If they will do these things to certain groups should I really trust them with my rights? Once again it’s about time they stopped regurgitating the talking points and did their jobs. After all it’s the job of the media to ask questions and report findings of those questions. Not to get too excited but I think we may be seeing a small ray of sunshine.

Stupidity of the Left on Gun Control

Breitbart has an article out that I have to comment on. I didn’t even get past the headline without blood shooting out of my eyes. Yes the duct tape is firmly wrapped around my head just to keep from exploding.

The face of Stupidity

The face of Stupidity

Here’s the thing Sen. Boxer, known anti-gun wacko, thinks that bringing our guns on camping trips is a “national security threat”. I really don’t have any clean words about that statement. Not a single one.

Senator, I have a wake up call for you. Terrorists, by nature, aren’t concerned with the law. If they want to take out a dam they aren’t going to do so regardless of what anyone thinks. Targeting a bunch of families camping and target shooting isn’t the way you fight terrorism. Sen. Boxer…you don’t have a clue. The stupidity of your statements are mind boggling. You can’t keep calling law abiding citizens the problem without repercussions. Unfortunately, I don’t think the people voting you into office have any more working brain cells than you do. So I’ll just say this…until you educate yourself about terrorist tactics and the difference between those and the common family that enjoys shooting…just zip it. You’re just making a jackass of yourself and we’re tired of hearing it.

Photo shoot locations

I’m in the middle of trying to find a good location to get some photos of our rifles. It’s not only time to update the website but to get some uniformity with the pictures.

There’s only one problem…I’m really picky. I know the look I want. I know the emotion I want to invoke. Finding a location that fits that is the problem.

Any suggestions on who to contact or of locations you think would look great, please let me know.

Wrong Direction

We all know that we, as a country, have been heading slowly down the wrong path for decades. I have to default to my own personal realm. For thousands of years of human development there has been one thing, one set of skills, that has been the definition of a man. That one thing being the type of weapon he carried and his skill with it. If he was caught out among others without it he was thought less of a man. From a caveman’s club to a Celt’s sword, to an American Minuteman’s Pennsylvania Long Rifle everything about him has been focused on the symbol of his power. This symbol told everyone around him the most important parts of his soul. The strength, the focus, and the honor to protect.

Today we demonize our children and make weapons a matter of terror. We catch them with toys and make them so afraid of ever coming in contact with the real thing that gun control will a useless point in the decades to come. If they can’t legislate it away they will simply make our children too fearful of handling, much less owning, them in their life time. If no one wants to own a weapon then the market will fall out from underneath them and only enough will be made for the police and military. Without fear of an uprising the government will be free to inflict anything they want on the populous.

Read this story

This story sickens me. Why are we arresting children, #1? And if we even need to go further than that then why are we arresting them for a BB Gun? Last time I checked they made them FOR children. Sure they are tools to, responsibly, teach young children to shoot and that’s not a bad thing. The whole article is making a monster of the boy.

“A seven-year-old brought a pellet gun to school, oh my God!”

Seriously….? A full grown adult had that quote to say? IT WAS A PELLET GUN. Do people even know the difference between this and a real gun? The difference in

This is the typical pellet pistol. Some BB pistols are fairly realistic but the article specified a pellet pistol.

This is the typical pellet pistol. Some BB pistols are fairly realistic but the article specified a pellet pistol.

lethality? Oh, wait. That doesn’t matter because we now arrest kids for having an “L” shaped Poptart that could look like a pistol.

“I’m surprised in someways but not in other ways. I was just kind of hoping that 7-year-olds would be a little more innocent than that, or maybe he was just being innocent and thinking that this is cool,” said Cameron.

Cameron…I’m only going to say this once so pay attention, Scooter. When I was a kid a pellet/BB gun wasn’t cool…it was AWESOME. That hasn’t changed. That hasn’t changed.

I will always be proud to be an American. I will always be proud of this country’s history. But I am DISGUSTED with the people of this nation today.

Mainstream Media

We live in a world where the American media think they have a monopoly on morality and information. They are completely comfortable with telling us that it’s the community that owns our children and not the parents. They are equally cozy in not reporting important things or in cheering for the Boston bombers to be white Tea Party members.

Everyone knows those crazy people with their wives and kids, flying American flags, and singing the National Anthem are the real terrorists…not the poor persecuted Muslim boys just trying to get an education…right? If we say anything contrary to that then we’re racist. Really….is that the best you’ve got? If we don’t agree with you then you’re going to call names? What are you a bunch of 5yr olds? You going to throw a school yard temper tantrum too?

This is the kind of crap we put up with. If we have any kind of national pride then you’re a right wing extremeist. How about screw you MSNBC. Take your garbage and cram it.

As it turns out having an idea of who to look for would have been helpful.

All it takes is a couple questions. Who hates us the most? Muslim Extremeists. Who has threatened to blow up sporting events? Muslim Extremeists. Who do we know that uses roadside bombs as a normal tactic? Muslim Extremeists. So how is it racist to take a look at what we know, match up a group of people that fit that profile, and see it as a starting point to find the ones that did any crime? I don’t care if the crime profile fits white males or asian females or a specific religion it gives you a starting point to find the bad guy. So once again the liberal media can suck it.

Look at it this way. It doesn’t matter what the situation is. News outlets like CNN or MSNBC is looking for a way to blame it on those that don’t agree with them politically. It has absolutely nothing to do with what is factual. They did nothing but lie to the public on the gun debate. They simply demonized anyone that would dare to disagree with them on firearms. They’ve gone from seeking out the truth and reporting it to having an agenda and spreading propaganda to achieve their desired outcome.

The entire thing disgusts me.

Manhunt for the Bomb Suspects

I have just a couple things to say about what’s going on today in the manhunt for the final bomb suspect. I have to be critical here and I hope don’t offend any law enforcement involved because I think these guys are heros.

First off, they have Watertown on lockdown. I understand this reaction. It’s both good an bad, like everything in this world. You see if the flock is in danger you pin them up so they are all in one place and you have one area to protect. This also makes them easy pickings of there are more than one wolf endangering them because you can only fight off so many at a time.

So having “Sheeple” on lockdown does the same thing. The streets are clear which makes it easier for the “Sheepdogs” to do their jobs. It’s a lot easier to find someone running the streets if the streets aren’t crowded. It’s a simple tactic.

It also further endangers the flock. How you ask? Well, you have an entire city full of people locked inside their homes without guards. The Sheepdogs are all out running the streets looking for the wolf. This gives the wolf a chance to kick in a locked door and do bodily harm to the Sheeple inside because they’re pinned up and vulnerable.

Now, what would I do differently? This one I really don’t know because there really aren’t a lot of options here. Either you have crowds people for the suspect to hide in, schools for him to possibly blow up, or you suspend civil liberties for the duration of the manhunt. My heart goes out to the law enforcement of Watertown. They have a very difficult job to do and really only one way to do it.

If this was happening here what would I do personally? I wouldn’t do a lot different. I would keep my kids home from school. I would never be more than five feet from a weapon and would have multiple with me. I may even see that my family (if there was time to organize this) go to a trusted friend outside of the city while gathering a few other trusted friends to Crusader HQ. I have the unique responsibility to make sure that none of the weapons I happen to be working on fall into the hands of the wolf. However, to be completely truthful, I don’t like those options either. This is a really tough situation.

Lastly all I can really say is this….GET HIM BOYS. Find this bastard and give him a double tap for me.

No Small Victory

Yesterday we had a victory for gun owners nation wide. The bill proposed by Toomey was killed by a margine of only six votes. We may have snaked in this win but I’ll take it.

The Unheard

There is another side of the gun debate that isn’t being heard. In fact it’s a side that isn’t even being given a voice. Sure, we hear from the left and their grandstanding on the graves of the fallen. We hear from the right and a few of them actually standing up for the Constitution. We hear from the NRA and GOA and their fight for gun owners and the Second Amendment and that’s great.

Let’s face it. They couldn’t care less who their agenda effects. Their only goal is control over the people. If we won’t simply submit to their sense of morality then they will force it on us. It’s evil to it’s very core. The Devil sits back, wrings his hands, and laughs at this entire debate. Either the liberals get every ounce of their proposals passed (giving them total control over the country) or they get just enough passed so they can claim a victory (because the R.I.N.O.’s caved in claiming the safety of our children. Last time I checked my children’s safety was MY job and not that of some ancient bureaucrat in D.C.) and they have their foot in the door. No matter haw you look at it they win.

What we aren’t hearing from is the manufactures, their hundreds of workers, the companies making accessories for these weapons and their thousands of workers, the companies that publish the gun rags or their writers (often freelance writers), the trainers, or the thousands of families that depend on the paycheck from these industries for food and shelter. Where is their outcry? Where is their voice being heard? The quick answer is that they aren’t heard. It’s not that they are silent it’s just that they aren’t being given credit as part of the industry.

Gadsden_flag_GrungeWe have the right to exist. We have to right to make a living the way we see fit, withing the confines of the law. That law being the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. Inside that realm no man has the right to restrict what we do. We build a lawful product so as far as I’m concerned…Congress, state or federal, can get bent. We are in the pursuit of our own happiness the way we see fit. I really don’t care if they don’t like it either. There simply is no room for debate. I don’t want to hear anything about having to keep the children safe when we give them the answer (as trainers and security professionals) and they dismiss us as though we remain muzzled. I, for one, will not remain silent.

So, let’s hear from those of us in the industry. Don’t be afraid of these liberal chumps. Be proud of who we are. We are the firearms industry. We are those who have already been standing up for our rights as Americans. We just haven’t told Washington WHO we are. The NRA and GOA are doing a great job but they are standing up for the Second Amendment as a whole. NO ONE is standing up for our right to exist. If we don’t…who will?
