So Much for Lobbying

It's not like they actually believe people who have proven themselves unfailingly peaceable are going to start anything.That's just talk for the media to amplify and gin up hysteria.

Only One Arrest

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 14:53
A 21-year-old Richmond woman was charged Monday with wearing a mask in public following the gun-rights rally in Richmond. Police said a Richmond officer warned Mikaela E. Beschler, of the 1100 block of North 34th Street, on two earlier occasions that day to adjust the bandanna covering her face. [More]Absent from all reports I've seen is whose "side" she is on.  "Bandanna" kind'a suggests something...

Regardless, that'll teach her not to presume to claim "Only One" entitlements.

If he is prohibited from even touching a gun, I’d be curious to see if the one he’s holding on that album cover is a real one or a prop. [More]

What Difference Does It Make?

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 13:24

Clarification on the estimated turnout for today's rally: the division is closer to approximately 6,000 people on Capitol Square and 16,000 outside the gates. [More]I'm being told it was more like 50,000, so the difference is significant. The question now is "Why?"

[Via Mack H]


"Official" counts for events like this are always hard. The capital police estimates say 22,000. EM Ed Levine guessed "50,233" :) and another member used the same software the park police used on the mall to count people density from helicopter photos and his software says between 50,000 - 100,000.

So Much for 'For the Children'

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 13:14

Lisette Johnson, a Richmond resident and a survivor of domestic gun violence who advocates with Everytown for Gun Safety, said the photos of people gathering at the Capitol with firearms triggered traumatic memories of her own assault, when her husband shot her in front of her children in 2009. (Her husband, Marshall E. Johnson, took his own life that day, police said.) [More]So according to this account, she "was in the process of ending the relationship after years of described abuse"...?


So she knew full well he was violent but she nevertheless left her children in that dangerous situation rather than doing the responsible, adult and parental thing of getting them away from him? And her "solution" is to make the rest of us vulnerable?

Forgive me for having conflicted sympathy.

We Don't Want Your Kind Around Here

“Go back to Iowa, you go back to Ohio,” he said during a speech in Harlem. “New York City belongs to the people that was here and made New York City what it is.” [More] If I may be so bold, being but a hick from the sticks: "...the people that were here..."

I guess we don't dare repeat his own words back to him. And we all know that retired elite "Only One" Eric has something we, the backwoods slackjaws kind of take for granted?

What Better Way to 'Celebrate' the 'Gun-Free' NFL than a 'Mass Shooting'?

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 11:43

A Facebook post showed the club was hosting a celebration party after the Kansas City Chiefs won the AFC Championship.[More]Maybe the club needs a clear bag policy.

Thank goodness there was a good guy with a gun/security guard to stop the perp. No word yet on if he was a white nationalist with an AR-15, but it's looking doubtful, which means there will be no national-level media exploitation.

Rain Check

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 11:38

Fletcher wants to add something.

We're perfectly capable of evaluating this problematic president against a field of outright traitors without painting an opportunist as something his actions tell us he's really not. And as for "DESTROY[ing] our Second Amendment rights," they might destroy Fairflacks', but mine will take a bit more effort.

Good rule of thumb: Don't talk to your members (your employers) like they're idiots. Then again, maybe those are the ones persuaded by such appeals.

In fairness, when I started out, I went through my starry-eyed NRA evangelist period before I started noticing and then examining all the disconnects.

Sentence First — Verdict Afterwards

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 09:15

Domestic abusers are not law-abiding citizens, Governor. [More]True. But in order to be called that, they have to be charged, tried and convicted, with full due process every step of the way. Otherwise, the system of justice respectful of rights that these weasels demand to be discarded has always presumed the accused to be innocent.

Where else do we stand things on their head, and for whom? And what would that do to equal protection?

How telling that the Kansas City Star Editorial Board is comprised of a bunch of totalitarian-minded and absurd red queens.

It doesn't matter what you call them: "Authorized Journalists," "real reporters," "Fourth Estate Fifth Columnists," the DSM...  the only question is how many are just useful idiots as opposed to willfully malignant.
