Door Kickers*

Gun bans? 2nd Amendment repeal? All the rest?

Do you really want to kick in millions of doors because it’s possible someone might be well-armed?

When you don’t how many of what guns maybe they’ve got?

Because some idiot couldn’t be bothered to report a crazy prohibited person to NICS?

How much money do you think you’ll need to pay enough people to conduct warrantless raids in fear of tens of millions of well-armed residents?

I’d say, “Good luck with that,” but good luck isn’t what I’d be wishing for jackbooted stormtroopers.

* I’ve explained all this in rather carefully sourced detail elsewhere. This is for Attention Deficit Disorder “journalists” and snowflakes who have trouble with anything beyond 30 second sound bites.

Valentine’s Day Massacre

On February 14, 2018 something didn’t happen.

  • Fifty-five to one-hundred-twenty million gun owners did not commit mass murder.
  • Laws forbidding weapons in school did not work.
  • Laws forbidding the unlicensed carry of firearms did not work.
  • A background check did not prevent deaths.
  • School security did not save all the students.

Prior to that, more did not happen.

  • Since at least 2012, police did not arrest a disturbed person for multiple acts of violence, threats, harassment, peeping, and weapons violations.
  • Police did not Baker Act a “weird” “psycho,” making him a prohibited person unable to lawfully purchase a gun.
  • A school did not press criminal charges against a person who broke multiple laws against weapons, destruction of property, and assault.

“Authorities” did not do the jobs they are drawing taxpayer money to do.

So to you celebrity hookers, Z-list actors, Dimwit pols, Repugnant surrender monkeys, lying media, and the rest of the gun people controlling victim disarmers:


Stop blaming the fifty-five to one-hundred-twenty million gun owners who did not commit mass murder. Stop screeching for laws that infringe the human/civil rights of the innocent. Stop screeching for preemptively-prove-your-innocence prior restraint of constitutionally guaranteed rights, registration, and licensing with which the Supreme Court says criminals do not have to comply (look it up, dumbasses).


You want to blame someone for the Parkland dead? Try the school administrators and police who looked away. Don’t blame me or the other fifty-five to one-hundred-twenty million who did not do it, and who have proposed solutions.

Solutions that do not involve assuming the innocent are guilty, and criminals will obey laws.

Solutions that do not violate rights.

Solutions that would work.

Solutions that do not involve:

  • trying to figure out how many gun owners there are in that 55-120 million range.
  • trying to figure out who they are
  • trying to figure out where they are
  • trying to figure out how many guns there are, out of estimates ranging from 265 million to three-quarters of a billion
  • trying to figure out where the guns are
  • trying to figure out where to find the money to hire enough SWAT teams to kick in 125 million doors looking for guns
  • trying to figure out where to find the money to buy enough firepower and body armor to make the attempt marginally survivable
  • trying to figure out where to find the money to to buy caskets when it wasn’t enough

Perhaps the mouthy Kardashian Klan, Schumer(s), Feinstein, Grassley, Shannon Twatts, Bloomberg, et al will don jackboots and volunteer to kick doors for free. If not,

Common Sense Head Protection

Gabby Giffords’ Gun Control Group: Use ‘Ear Plugs’ Not ‘Silencers’
On Monday, Gabby Giffords’ gun control group Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS) tweeted that Americans who want hearing protection should use “ear plugs” not “silencers.”

Yeah, and victim disarming politicians who want to be safe should wear Kevlar helmets, not ban defensive tools.

There’s an easy question

Are Virginia gun laws to blame for gun trafficking in New York?

No. NY laws that effectively subsidize gun trafficking — making it profitable to buy guns at full retail price and smuggle them to NY — are responsible.

And here’s a question of my own for the victim disarmers: If the ready availability of guns in permissive [insert state of your choice] causes crime in your restrictive crime-ridden state, why doesn’t it cause crime in the firearms-source state?

Taxachusetts blames New Hampshire, NY blames VA (and everybody else). And we just look at relative crimes rates and blame the criminals in those other locales.

And that is WHY we mock you

Don’t mock liberals calling for gun control in wake of OSU attack
It is heartbreaking that 11 young people were injured in this incident, although I have not heard that any of their injuries are life-threatening. If the assailant had used a semi-automatic rifle, like the young (white, American) man in the church in South Carolina or the young (white, American) man in the theater in Colorado, we would be dealing with multiple deaths and dozens of injuries.

See? The moronic Landen says knife and vehicular injuries aren’t life threatening (which would come as a surprise to the CDC). And that if the asshole had used a “semi-automatic rifle” like Charleston’s asshole lots of people would have died.

Except the Charleston asshole didn’t use a semi-automatic rifle. He used a .45 caliber handgun, for which purchase he passed a background check.

And that, Ms. Landen, is why we ridicule you. You can’t get basic facts like weapons used, or laws in force, straight, and call for what already is while ignoring what isn’t.

You’re a dumbass.

Ayotte should be gone, but this isn’t why

NH voters hold Ayotte accountable for gun control votes
Just months after my mom was killed, the U.S. Senate was set to consider the Manchin-Toomey bill that would have expanded background checks for gun sales. I joined other gun violence survivors on Capitol Hill asking senators to vote for stronger gun laws. As a fellow New Englander, I tried to meet with Sen. Ayotte, but she never made time to talk to me.

Then she voted against the bill. In a subsequent constituent meeting in her office, Ayotte told me that expanded background checks would be a burden on gun store owners. That was her word – a burden. As if having my mother murdered in an elementary school was not a burden I will live with for the rest of my days.


Quite aside from the inconvenient fact that expanded preemptively-prove-your-innocence checks wouldn’t have stopped Some Asshole who murdered his his mother and stole her guns, Ayotte’s actions are mischaracterized.

They were worse.

In fact, Ayotte pissed off RKBA supporters by voting for cloture on the Gottlieb-Manchin-Toomey-Schumer victim disarmament amendment so that it could go to a vote. But when it did go to the Senate floor, she finally voted against in a pique of ire because Senate leaders wouldn’t let her further amend it to add even more restrictions based on mental health.

Ayotte was fine with the human/civil rights violations already in the amendment; she just wanted even more.

You know, he almost has a point there*

How can we reduce US firearm suicide rates?
Smart gun technology, such as fingerprint recognition, limits use of a gun to the owner and permitted users. Mandating that new guns use the new technology and instituting trade-in programs to replace old guns with safer ones can prevent a household’s firearms from being used for suicide by family members or others with access to the firearm.

If the Armatix iP1 is indicative of smart guns, mandating its use might reduce firearms suicide by ten to twenty percent on failures alone.

* For new readers: sarcasm.

Dear Creeps,

[Sent to Representatives Paul Ryan and Buddy Carter; and Senators Mitch McConnell, David Perdue, and Johnny Isakson.]

I am horrified.

I am horrified that _any_ elected official would even momentarily contemplate

1. Implementing universal background checks (better called universal preemptively prove your innocence checks) in response to terrorists who passed background checks (the San Bernardino shooter purchased his own guns, except for what he had a friend buy because he didn’t want anyone to notice how many he was acquiring; the Fort Hood shooter had purchased his firearm _and_ held a security clearance; the Orlando lunatic passed multiple background checks).

2. Implementing background checks in response to a lunatic who murdered his own mother to steal her guns. How anyone with two neurons to rub together would think an under-age murder would wait for his NICS check to process boggles my _rational_ mind.

3. Adding those listed in _investigative_ terror databases to the prohibited persons list. Those would be the same databases feeding the selectee/no-fly lists which have enabled the TSA to catch exactly zero terrorists. On the bright side, notoriously anti-rights Sen. Kennedy was on the no-fly list (along with lesbians, nuns, reporters, and at least one inconvenient wife of an immigration officer who wanted to be rid of her), so maybe all the senators or representatives stupid enough to vote for such thing will find themselves bereft of their own rights.

4. That apparently everyone in DC is totally ignorant of the definition of “infringe,” and none of you have dictionaries.

5. That your collective ignorance of the Second Amendment extends to the Fourth and Fifth Amendments.

6.And that seemingly none of you bothered to read that pesky Constitution before taking oath to uphold it.

In short, I am horrified that Congress is packed with ignorant, evil assholes of Soviet proportion, who find due process inconvenient.

I am ashamed that this country elects dumbasses who think shrouds are shoulder things that go up, Barretts fire heat-seeking bullets, the MCX is an AR-15, are incapable of differentiating between a clip and a magazine, that AR-pattern semi-automatic rifles are assault rifles, and that the .223 Remington/5.56 NATO — deemed too wimpy for deer hunting in many jurisdictions — is insanely powerful and lethal.

I am angered that such stupid people would use that ignorance to impose preemptive violations of human/civil rights on those who did not commit crimes like Sandy Hook, Aurora, or Orlando.

But I simply accept it as par for the course that you collective fools haven’t figured out that not only are criminals called that because they commit crimes like violating your little firearms rules, but that under HAYNES they cannot be required to self-incriminate by participating in background checks.

Perhaps by now you — or more likely a semi-literate staffer tasked with keeping you isolated from your irate constituents’ opinions –are thinking, “Oh, no; that isn’t me. I’m one of the good guys. I don’t do that.”

Great. PROVE IT. Introduce an Article I, Section 5, clause 2 bill of expulsion for those offensive oathbreakers who DO those things. Push it to a vote. Prove you at least _tried_. Until then, you are — at best — a morally bankrupt enabler, condoning those actions.

Yes, I know it doesn’t do anything but amuse functionally illiterate staffers, and get me on lists.

What rising rates?

Perhaps Comey should read his own agency’s reports.

FBI Director James Comey Deplores ‘Peculiar Indifference’ to Rising Murders Across Country
“Something is happening in America,” with “cities that have nothing in common with each other experiencing [an] uptick” in violence, Comey said at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, an icon of the civil rights movement.

Nationally, the murder rate is dropping to record lows.


True, there have been recent spikes in certain cities. But they absolutely do have something in common: decades of Democrap control and victim disarmament.

Speaking of misperceptions

See, us stupid RKBA types simply misunderstood the nice gun grabbers.

A common misperception about gun control
The hardliners seem to believe that opposing the unrestricted manufacturing and sale of guns is suspect if one wishes to be considered a true-blue American.

And with that one statement, we see that Mr. Cotto is completely ignorant of the very subject on which he would lecture us. Unrestricted? Seriously?

Let’s look at what it takes to manufacture and sell guns.

  • Get a federal license. Type 03 if you are just a dealer, but a more expensive type 07 to manufacture. Yet another license to manufacture “destructive devices.”
  • Get your state or local business license. Depending on state, you may also require a separate firearms dealer/manufacturer license. Expect to be required to install specified security and surveillance systems.
  • Build your firearm. Give it a serial number (permanently marked in ways strictly regulated, right down to font size and depth of the stamping/engraving).
  • There are safety requirements for modern-manufacture weapons. Expect to build in a firing pin/striker disconnect or block.
  • If there’s any doubt whether it might be a destructive device or Any Other Weapon, send a sample to the ATF Technical Branch for evaluation.
  • If the ATF determines it could be a machine gun, you can’t sell it to civilians at all. If it’s an AOW, purchasers will need a special tax stamp to get it.
  • States like California and Massachusetts have their own set of rules, so you need to send them sample guns for testing before you can market there. Better check all fifty states’ rules. You’ll probably have to test fire each gun and include a fired case in the box with the gun.
  • Truthfully, you won’t want to market anything in California, because new guns have to incorporate nonexistent “microstamping” technology.
  • That serial number? Permanently log it in records subject to ATF inspection. That log will include when you ship the firearm out to a dealer or middleman.
  • The recipient also has to maintain those records. Forever. If they go out of business, the records must be shipped to the ATF.
  • To sell to an individual:
    • Make him fill out a multipage questionnaire. The ATF wants to know his race.
    • Check his government-issued photo ID. If he doesn’t have one, no sale.
    • Run a background check on your customer; you are required to consider him a felon (or several other classes of “prohibited person”) until proven otherwise.
    • Once the background comes back clean, you can sell him the firearm (unless it’s a pre-’86 machine gun or AOW for which he has not yet obtained his tax stamp).
    • But… depending on the state, you can’t actually give it to him for several days. Mandated waiting periods, you know.
    • You might also be required to provide trigger locks and mental health information.
    • Oh, yes. You are required to be a mind reader, to ensure you can detect an unlawful “straw purchase.” Not all criminals will be as obliging as former astronaut Mark Kelly who publicly announced that he was making a straw purchase.
  • Now that you’ve sold that gun, don’t forget to update your bound book for the ATF’s inspection.
  • Brace yourself for ATF compliance inspections. Obama has issued an executive memorandum requiring the ATF to conduct even more of them.

Perhaps Mr. Cotto thinks the firearms industry is “unrestricted” because he heard Hillary Clinton say that firearms manufacturers are immune against lawsuits. He should have noted the “politician/mouth-moving” indicator.

The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act only provides limited immunity. They are liable for defective products, just like any other industry. They are liable for laws broken by themselves.

But they are not liable if they followed all the rules (far more than just those I mentioned already), built a product that operates correctly as advertised, and Some Asshole murders his mother to steal her guns that she purchased lawfully (see above procedures) to kill more people. (Background: The PLCA was passed after the family of a gangbanger murder victim successfully sued five firearms manufacturers for building the gun with which their punk was shot, despite the fact that the make and model were unknown since the firearm was never found.)

Once Mr. Cotto demonstrates more knowledge about firearms, industry, and the Second Amendment, I might be a little more inclined to consider his whining about my alleged misperceptions.
