It Depends Upon What the Meaning of the Word 'Originalist' Is

How Scalia Botched Heller and Let the Left Undermine the 2nd Amendment [More]
I've pointed that out before.

I've also repeatedly pointed out that we can expect no truly fundamental change unless there's a credible "or else" attached to a demand. And that until our major gun groups get serious about the real intent of the Second Amendment, the erosion will continue.

Much Ado about What, Exactly?

The War on Guns (Codrea) - Wed, 01/15/2020 - 10:54

A northern Michigan radio show host is helping to organize a push in Michigan’s 83 counties to adopt resolutions affirming Second Amendment gun ownership rights, but the reach or perceived overreach of those resolutions could vary by location.[More]
So most of them will be "full of sound and fury. Signifying nothing"?

What kind of tale is that again?

We're the Only Ones Red-Flagged Enough

Morris is heard on body camera footage of the incident asking Jeremy Holmes to drop a knife he’s holding 36 times within two minutes. Jeremy Holmes is heard asking police to shoot him. When Morris began to holster his weapon so that he could stun Jeremy Holmes, Jeremy Holmes charged at him. Morris, along with Fort Collins Officer Erin Mast, fired their guns. [More]This actually works in our favor and bolsters the evidence that such orders can be initiated by the vengeful and crazy. 
At least it would if they followed through and charged the mother.

Who Really Didn't See This Coming?

The War on Guns (Codrea) - Wed, 01/15/2020 - 10:22

With GOP support, Florida Senate panel backs closing gun show loophole [More]
By making "lesser of two evils" excuses and urging everyone to heed the voice of "pragmatism," GOP backstabbers and squishes have been rewarded for betrayals instead of punished. Had some prominent examples been made just a few times decades ago, followed by repeat examples when warranted, the line would be toed if not out of principle then out of self-preservation.

Instead, the longterm was sold out for the short term and we got phony "A" grades for conmen whose actions never lived up to their pledges. Did anyone really think most Republicans actually supported us, as opposed to had to suck up to us? And once they see they don't need to, did anyone really believe such creatures would stand by us?

You don't need to lobby real leaders to do what's right. They're already out in front of it and leading the charge.

Laura Gerken, daughter of Lucas County Commission Pete Gerken, was arrested Thursday night protesting outside the Huntington Center, where President Donald Trump spoke. [More] "Commissioner"? And speaking of "real reporting," I don't suppose mentioning ol' Pete is a Democrat would be relevant? Or who she learned to act that way from? And again?

You just gotta wonder about the guy who made a career of giving companies incentives to move overseas being perceived as the champion of the workers while he attacks the guy bringing jobs back in.

2A*C3

The War on Guns (Codrea) - Wed, 01/15/2020 - 09:27
2A*C3 is a community investing in creating command, control, and communication in support of defending second amendment rights. [More]I get invites all the time but I can't join groups on social media because I only use it to publicize the articles I write. There's no other way for me to get the word out there and after a full day -- and they are full days and then some -- there is just no time left for me to engage any deeper.

That said, having spent 16 years in a past life producing directives for a defense contractor specializing in satellite navigation and communications, I fully agree with the concept being promoted, and have, on occasion, advocated using social media "for C3I purposes" instead of "trivial" ones.

A quote would be in order:

"Communications are the nervous system of the entire SAC organization, and their protection is therefore, of the greatest importance. I like to say that without communications, all I control is my desk, and that is not a very lethal weapon." Gen. T.S. Power, CINCSAC, May 1959
I encourage you to check 2A*C3 out and invite them to keep me apprised of significant developments they are working on.

A Great First Step

The War on Guns (Codrea) - Tue, 01/14/2020 - 13:58

“I like that they’re making an attempt to close these loopholes at gun shows,” said Kate Kile, the leader of the organization’s Tallahassee chapter. “It’s a great first step.” [More]Or as I observed 20 damn years ago when they were floating that same tired-at-the-time lie:
But for the gun controllers, that’s not all bad– because based on results, each tragedy provides a new opportunity to exploit, a new press conference to hold, a new law to enact, or a new lawsuit to file. They’ll propose further restrictions under the bald-faced pretense that it’s "a good first step." They won’t tell you that there are already over 20,000 gun laws on the books at the federal, state and municipal level that are consistently ignored by all but the law-abiding.

"A good first step…" the clueless segment of our victim pool populace will drone back at the proposal of law number 20,001.

"One helluva good first step– keep ‘em coming!" agree illegally armed criminal predators, emboldened with each new law that renders their prey increasingly vulnerable… [Via Roger J]

Enforce Existing Intolerable Acts?

The War on Guns (Codrea) - Tue, 01/14/2020 - 13:18

With the 2020 Illinois General Assembly session about to kick into full gear (with gun control being a centerpiece), there is something that needs to be addressed. This will be a timeline of the FOID/CCL system and how not using funds intended for it and not following up on FOID revocations for violent offenders turn into tragedy. It will also show how legislators pass the blame (and cost) on to innocent legal illinois gun owners. [More]So their thesis is that "gun control" works?
And we should demand the state do its job?
