Self Defense

First Responders – Susan The Bruce shows us the Progressive view

by Skip March 22, 2015

From the March 2015 of America’s Freedom (p.39, emphasis mine): In the United States and other nations, more and more people are recognizing that victims have the best chance of survival when they can be the first responders. First Responders.  We usually think of these folks as heros – and they are, no doubt.  But they […]

Just for Susan The Bruce: Liberals just don’t like real equal protection

by Skip March 22, 2015

The Cognitive Dissonance is strong with this one.  Over  at Steve’s post (“NH Democrats Put a Price-tag on Rape“), well known NH Progressive blogger Susan the Bruce decided that she wanted to start a flame war with the premise that women should NOT be able to protect themselves against bigger, stronger male n’err-do-wells with what the […]

When a State Senator called a female activist’s statements about the right to self defense “half-baked” we took him to task in print at GraniteGrok.  When Saturday rolled around it was only natural that we would continue to have fun at his expense on the podcast.  Listen to the entire Podcast here Follow us on […]

Senator Hosmer claimed he’d help domestic abuse victims. He LIED.

by Kimberly Morin February 11, 2015

I don’t know how I happened upon this but back in 2012 I wrote an article about the ‘Most DEPSICABLE political flier in the 2012 election cycle‘.  It was an ad for Senator Hosmer sent out by the vile Ray Buckley (now we know who Hosmer is parroting when he was condescending, sexist and rude […]

You know, the same Democrats who refuse to speak up for the rights of Muslim women are the same ones disarming American women. I don’t think that’s a coincidence.

Stupidity Personified: I’m not sure that a can of Spam will hurt as much as a bullet

by Skip January 15, 2015

This is about the stupidest idea I have heard in the area of self defense (ok, just period) especially in the case of an armed bad guy attacking a school (or any other soft target).  Serious – slowly throwing canned grocery items by middle schoolers at someone firing 9mm, .45, or .223 back at them?  What […]

by Skip December 26, 2014

Stupid is as stupid does.  22 year old dead stupid (reformatted, emphasis mine): A woman in Memphis, Tennessee, answered a knock at her door at around 6:20 p.m. on Tuesday. When she opened the door, she found herself in a potential life-and-death situation.  The suspect, identified as 22-year-old Nico Carlisle, reportedly forced his way into the […]

This almost happened to me….

by Skip August 9, 2014

I live in a more rural area in Central NH – certainly not a city or “in town” that isn’t quite what I would call “suburban” and we get fairly few strangers out here – and one day, the dogs started barking up a storm.  A rather burly young guy was coming up our pathway; […]

Comment Board Doodlings:
Israel Didn’t Scorch Enough Earth In Gaza!

by Mike August 6, 2014

Reacting to a borderline anti-Semitic piece on ZeroHedge (normally a good economic blog) which lamented Israel’s scorched earth tactics without context, I penned the following: The inhabitants of Gaza deserve what they get, and they haven’t been punished enough yet. Given a vote, they chose terrorist overlords instead of a government. Given aid, those overlords […]

An excellent roundup of discussions on Israel’s self defense and surgical strikes vs Hamas’ cynical use of human shields on I’ve been advocating for years that the point of original of each rocket or missile be turned into a smoking crater – if Hamas kept their rockets and military depots away from homes and […]

Did California Politicians Kill Those People or Was it The Brady Campaign?

After SandyHook, California added 11 new anti-gun bills into state law. California, the land of rich liberals who have a lock on power, gets an A- for Gun Control from the Brady Campaign.  Not sure how they rate on knives or BMW’s but guess what they get an F in? It’s understandable that the grief-stricken […]

The Democrats promised that if you disarm, the government will protect you, but they lied.  Six more people are dead and thirteen injured (in Santa Barbra), all of whom either believed the government’s lie, or were prohibited from arming themselves as a matter of policy.  They followed the rules, and in return they were injured […]

So what is Mayor Bloomberg getting for his $50 million anti-gun campaigns?

by Skip April 21, 2014

You know, you just can’t make this up!  First he announces his new anti-gun umbrella organization, Everytown, and it immediately gets “repurposed” immediately on social media as Rick points out here.  One would think that for $50 Mil, somebody would have thought to secure that FB page (and at least the state level ones) and […]

Goin’ Down In Georgia – Gun Restrictions Squashed!

by Mike March 25, 2014

Just Peachy! Lawmakers in Georgia ALMOST scored a bullseye by striking down many restrictions on gun use, licensing, concealed carry, and self defense. Both Hose and Senate passed a sweeping reform bill, HB60 by almost 2:1 margins, sending it to Governor Nathan Deal’s desk for almost certain signature. Here’s the list of changes – but […]

A pizza delivery woman thwarted an armed robbery attempt at a house off Rosehill Road on Thursday by producing a weapon of her own, Fayetteville police said. Ashley Marie Hurd, 26, a driver for Domino’s Pizza, took the order to a […]

DNC Suggests Advertising Your ‘Victim Status’ to Criminals

Thumbnail image for DNC Suggests Advertising Your ‘Victim Status’ to Criminals

The DNC has magnets you can put on your car that inform anyone who can read, and can still afford a car, that you are not a Republican. Speaking for myself, at least, I’d like to thank the DNC for letting criminals know who is most likely to be an unarmed, crybaby, pajama-boy-esqe victim-in-waiting.   It […]

It is not because men have made laws, that personality, liberty, and property exist.  On the contrary, it is because personality, liberty, and property exist before hand, that men make laws. … Nature, or rather God, has bestowed upon every one of us the right to defend his person, his liberty, and his property, since […]

Gun store ad for a company that sold to and is now doing business as Impact Guns in UT. But this gets the point accross, no doubt about it. Share it with a liberal beta male.  They’ll need to go home early from their job to work through their “feelings,” assuming they are actually working […]

One of the best questions you can ask a low or no-information voter who has bought into the progressive anti-gun mantra, after you point this fact out is, “who protects you if the police have no duty to do so?” That will get you a look and a half, mouth agape.  What subterfuge is this? […]

I’m always looking for connections… Democrat Rep Piper submitted an LSR to empower government to arbitrarily seize guns based on the state’s perception of intent.  By state I mean any authority, local, county or state. Given that this party, that being the Democrat party, is prone to abuse the police state simply because you disagree […]

On Tuesday a new anti-self defense law will take effect in Maryland.  The law bans 45 types of firearms–current owners can keep the ones they already own (for now), and limits magazines to 10 rounds.  Most of the weapons are (I beleive) rifles, AR’s, you know, whatever looks scary to a Democrat.  But a number […]
