Mitt Romney: Just as bad as Trump.

Unlike Barack Obama, Mitt Romney has had the opportunity to vote on a gun-rights related issue and voted the wrong way. Let's take a trip into the past:

Romney signs off on permanent assault weapons ban.
Governor Mitt Romney has signed into law a permanent assault weapons ban that he says will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on these guns.

"Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts", Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony on July 1 with legislators, sportsmen groups and gun safety advocates. "These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people."

It seems that in 2004, Mitt Romney suffers under the same wrong-headed beliefs that Barack Obama had in 2008 ( and more than likely still has).

Walmart to bring guns back.

Guns and ammo are returning to the shelves of hundreds of Walmarts and the blood of innocent children will run through the streets... Or not. This is a good move for Walmart that will help restablish them as more of an American company and less of a purveyor of cheap Chinese crap. It also debunks the VPC's continuing delusion that gun ownership is on a decline.

Personally, i'd never buy a gun at Walmart. I'd rather my gun money go to local gun stores that reinvest that money into ranges, 2nd Amendment advocacy, and education. Plus the cynic in me knows that Walmart really cares nothing about the 2nd Amendment and everything about money. They'll have guns in their stores just in time for the 2012 election season and perhaps the Obama Gun Rush Part Deux.

Self-defense comes to the workplace.

Oklahoma governor signs bill that expands self-defense rights.

Business owners, managers and employees soon will be able to defend themselves when they have a reasonable fear they face death or great bodily harm.

Gov. Mary Fallin on Monday signed into law House Bill 1439, which expands the right to use deadly force when in fear of imminent peril of death or great bodily harm. It takes effect Nov. 1.

Rep. Steve Vaughan, the author of the measure, said he filed the bill partly because of a pharmacist who has been charged with first-degree murder after shooting a masked robber six times in May 2009 inside an Oklahoma City pharmacy.

You now have the same right to self-defense at work as you do at home... Unless you work in a school, federal building, or any other government mandated Gun Free Zone. It's a start though.

This is why you lock them up. Part VII

Two British tourists shot dead in a Florida ghetto:

Shawn Tyson, a 16-year-old drop-out from a special needs school, has been charged with killing the pair.
He lives just 100 yards from the site of the murders and had been released from youth custody for allegedly firing a gun at a car only 12 hours before the killings.

More lives lost because of our catch and release criminal justice system.

Colin Goddard may or may not not be a coward, but he is a liar.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Weapons created "by the military for active war zones" are not being sold to the general public, thanks in part to the National Firearms Act and Hughes Amendment.

It looks like Colin will fit right in with the Brady Camp. He's already engaging in their trademark twisting of reality.

The newest Professional Victim.

Oh my. An attack on an anti-gun blogger. Did someone shoot her? Punch her in the face? Drive-by bayoneting? Assault clipping? Nope. It was something much more vile.

Someone said something about her.... On the intertubes. Oh the huge manatee! *clutching pearl necklace*

Remember folks:

The irony of Gun Free Zones knows no borders.

As many as 20 pupils are feared dead after a gunman opened fire in a primary school in western Rio de Janeiro.
"There is blood on the walls, blood on the chairs. There are 15 to 20 dead I think," said De Macedo, who was covered in blood. "I've never seen anything like this. It's like something in the United States."

Yes. It is like something in the United States where we also have the dreaded "Gun Free Zone". I wonder if like the United States, Rio also has those little signs with the gun crossed out, declaring that the rule of law is used to enforce defenselessness within their schools?

"...this is not journalism. You don't ensnare people."

Vivian Schiller, ex-CEO of NPR:
Schiller called O'Keefe and his practice of undercover stings an "abomination," and said, "this is not journalism. You don't ensnare people. You don't entrap people with hidden cameras...I don't know what this is, but it has nothing to do with the kind of journalism that i know."

Yet it was journalism when Ms. Schiller's NPR was reporting on Bloomberg's hidden camera antics.

Would you like cheese with that whine, Ms. Schiller?

A sniper with a "high-powered semi-automatic rifle".

It may not be April 1st, but that won't stop the fools in the press. Ignoring the obvious problems with the picture vs the actual gun used in the crime, one has to wonder what their definition of a sniper is.

According to the article, the police were close enough to hear the sniper's spent shells hitting the ground. After doing a bit of experimentation by dropping an empty 7.62x39 shell onto a concrete surface, on a relatively quiet day, with no gunfire or police radios blasting in my ear, i've determined the maximum distance you can hear an empty shell drop is approximately 30 yards. Hardly a sniper shot.

So apparently, a sniper is anyone with a rifle. Is it no wonder newspapers are a dying media?
