Quote of the Day – John Klein (4/19/2013)

They’re going to think I’m inactive at church.  I have an Appleseed this Sunday, Boomershoot next Sunday, and USPSA the following Sunday.  I think I’ve found a new religion.

Quote of the Day – Joe Huffman (4/18/2013)

Yes. It was shameful that so many people put so much effort into attempting to infringe upon a specific enumerated right. This forced millions of other people to put their own effort into stopping that attempt. The entire country, especially the politicians, had important other things to do and we had to take time out to fight the statist scum.

Joe Huffman – Quote of the day—President Barack Obama

April 18th, 2013

[QTFMT.  I spent a lot more time over the past 4 months defending my rights and civil liberties than I should have had to.  I could have invested that time elsewhere but instead I had to fight to the best of my ability to protect my rights and those of my future children.

The good news is we won this battle.  Apparently Obama is guaranteeing that there will be a round two.  Good luck with that.  You’ve now placed a target on a large number of your senators backs and midterm elections are always moving closer.  Nice of you to force other politicians to fall on your sword for idiotic policies Mr. President.

Now pardon me while I go spend some time with friends and family like I should have been the past 4 months. -B]

Can we at least pass a law requiring all TSA agents pass a doctor’s exam certifying that they are free from the malady of rectal-cranial inversion?

[If that were to happen there would be no one left in the ranks of the TSA.  I fail to find the fault with that policy. -B]*

If I had known this would come from those mags, I would have purchased them for that sole purpose.

[The magazines in question can be seen here.  Screen shot is below, though it’s worth clicking over just to read the whole debate it started (I will include the best part).


You can probably already guess who the problem child was in that threat of comments.  Read through them the debate was interesting even if honestly it fits the script I’ve seen 100 times.  Seriously I don’t know how they do it but I swear every “debate” goes through the exact same evolution. The kicker though is during that evolution they always do the same thing at one particular point.


And that folks, ended the debate.  Seriously, he stayed quite after that.  Though there is one other comment that frankly had me laughing my ass off.


I think Matthew’s final observation there nails it.  I gave plenty of counter anecdotal evidence along with information he could independently verify.  Instead he alluded to the idea that John and I are compensating for something.  Yup, that’s the sign of the winning argument there. –B]

Quote of the Day–Sebastian (3/21/2013)

Likewise, the gun rights debate is actually not about guns, but is rather a personhood debate, derived from the fairly common and historically pervasive American notion that the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right of citizenship and personhood. The right to defend one’s home, one’s life, and one’s liberty is deeply rooted in our sense of personal autonomy, self-reliance, and in our relationship with those who govern us, or who would claim to govern us. It is just as much about a right to our own corporal integrity and dignity as it is to many who support abortion rights.

Quote of the Day – Sebastian (3/19/2013)

The passage of SAFE in New York, the bills currently in Congress, and Colorado should be a wakeup call that they will pass whatever they can get away with. Gun control must go the way of the temperance movement.

[I couldn’t agree more.  It disturbs me no end that people are bitching about Google Glass and the dangers posed while walking around with their smart phone.  Yet at the same time they turn around and say we should throw more money and technology at something like this and then say with a straight face it could never be used for evil.

Yeah tell me, how many houses were robbed thanks to the database of gun owners created by that New York newspaper?  Tell me, how many houses will be robbed by the state when the state legalizes the theft of a particular piece of property by members of the state?  How many people will be killed in that process and in the aftermath as they try and create their “utopia”.  Thanks but no thanks, I’ve seen this movie before.   -B]

You can’t logically argue someone out of a position they didn’t logically argue themselves into.

It is often not worth the time to argue, it is however worth the time to shine a light on their stupidity and ignorance.  Some may improve themselves and learn from the adventure, others may not.  It is always worth the time to present them the opportunity.  At that point they can indicate their attitude and you can just note the response for future reference.  -B]

Quote of the Day–Joe Huffman (3/8/2013)

I want to see the day, perhaps 20 years from now, when people are brought to trial for the crimes they are committing today. By the advocating the infringement of the specific enumerated right to keep and bear arms they caused the foreseeable, needless, injuries and deaths of tens of thousands and they should be brought to justice for that.

Joe HuffmanConspiracy to Infringe

March 7th, 2013

[I’m glad I’m not the only one with that line of thinking or that dream.

It becomes increasingly more and more obvious that many of those who clamor for “mandatory training requirements” often don’t want training to be provided in schools.  It’s obvious they aren’t actually interested in educating people but creating a method to infringe on the rights of others.  For that reason anyone who argues for “training requirements” to exercise a right should have their advocacy used against them at their trial.  –B]
