Homemade Self-Defense

With efforts by the radical alt-left progressives to defund and dismantle police…


This is what the future for protection of innocents in this country looks like?


If you take away legitimate police and their efforts to protect citizens then this will force people to buy, build, and use even more weapons in their own self-defense.


Anarchy, chaos, lawlessness, and the wild west will be sure to take over as the new normal. 


We don’t need more out of control gunslingers, gangs, and vigilantism battling for our streets. 


Reform the police, protect the innocent people, and put the bad guys away. 😉

Don’ t Upset The Barista

Guns and Coffee on Smartphone.jpeg

Interesting sticker on this guy’s smartphone this morning:

“Guns and Coffee”


And the Starbucks mermaid in the center is packing two pistols in her hands, instead of the usual fishy fins. 


Now the good thing about this particular guy was that he was also wearing a lapel pin from a prominent law enforcement agency here in Washington, D.C., so that was comforting. 


I’ve heard about the economic trade-off (“opportunity costs”) between “Guns and Butter,” meaning how much we choose to budget for defense vs. civilian goods/social entitlements.


But this is novel–“Guns and Coffee”–I guess you can have your coffee and your 2nd Amendment rights as well. 


What happens if you haven’t had your coffee yet, does the little mermaid shoot first and ask questions later? 😉

Guns Are American

American Joe Gun.jpeg

So we can argue who exactly should be allowed to have guns in America.


But we can’t argue that the 2nd Amendment generally guarantees people the right “to keep and bear arms.”


Sure background checks are an important safety and security check to ensure we aren’t putting guns in the hands of criminals, terrorists, abusers, or mentally incompetent individuals. 


At the same time, people should be able to responsibly own and use them for hobby or self-defense. 


Some guns are even a work of art and not just a killing machine. 


Pictured here is an American Joe with etchings of USA and wings representing freedom and of course, the painting of the American flag for strength and patriotism. 


Not quite the golden AK-47 that Saddam Hussein sported, but nevertheless a beautiful and deadly .45 caliber one. 


With over 300 million guns in the USA, there is just about one for everyone. 


In America, there is a grand tradition of the Old West, but it’s also important to balance that with responsibility and safety. 😉

What Terror Attack?

Terror.jpeg

Haven’t we all heard it before…


Another terrorist attack, and there is an appeal for calm.


Radical Islam, no way…we can’t even say the words.


I’m sure we’ll hear the typical…that it was just a lone crazed gunman.


Forget that he avowed allegiance to ISIS.


And that he had previously been investigated by the FBI.


Also, that it is just 3 days since ISIS threatened to attack Florida.


We need the public to think there is stability and safety, especially right before the election.


DON’T ROCK THE POLITICAL BOAT!


The public is perceived as stupid.


Part of the echo chamber with the media. 


Feed them some crap about this being gun violence and attack the 2nd Amendment and call it a day.


The sheep will go back to their slumber and still vote for who the elites tell them to.


Over 50 DEAD.


Over another 50 wounded, many (or most) in CRITICAL CONDITION.


The WORST mass shooting in US history.


We’re tough on terrorism…keep repeating that.


Don’t flinch when the cameras are on you.


Make a remark that it’s because the enemy is angry about GITMO or Palestine or whatever.


In other words, it’s justified–we deserve it!


Close GITMO and resolve the Palestinian issue and all will be well in the world and there won’t be any more of this terrorist, murderous, violence against civilians, women, children, people at worship or at weddings or at funerals, or going to work in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, or on a bus or train, or sitting in a cafe or pizzeria or club.


Let’s stop more sanctions and release more money to Iran, the world #1 sponsor of terrorism.  


Let’s leave Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Yemen and more…all will be well.


Blood shed, treasure spent. 


Time to go home.


The enemy is not coming here.


Everyone rest assured. 


The unity rally after the attacks in Paris…we’re a no show. 


The attack in Tel Aviv last week…tell them to show some restraint. 


Orlando…forget about it, really–it’s over.


Let’s focus on the election now.


Tell them about glass ceilings and redistributing the wealth–they’ll eat that up.


Power, 4 years…maybe 8.


Citizens, sleep well…the Ambien is being carefully administered to each and every one.  Zzzzzz.  😉
