Over the last few days, one can hardly spray coffee through their nose without hitting a monitor containing a story about self-proclaimed anarchist and communist neo-hippies talking about how they’re going to “overthrow” capitalism or some such. For a hilarious and extremely ironic example, see the second clip over on Hot Air featuring some hippie chick selling things to overthrow the capitalism by which she is raising money.
But, yea, I just thought I’d take this opportunity to pass along a friendly bit of advice to any misguided hippies who might pass through while googling for news about capitalism’s inevitable demise. Before you “take up arms” and start your “combat training” in order to wage civil war against us eeeevil capitalist pig-dogs or whatever, there’s one itsy bitsy detail you should probably keep in mind:
We have all the guns.
And we’re buying so many more that you’ll be lucky to find a handful from your local shop without getting on a two month backorder list. It might be worth pointing out that if your pals in Congress and the White House had their way, there would be no more arms for you to take up against us. But, then again, communist rich kids aren’t known for their ability to recognize irony..
Anyhow, as I said, this is friendly advice, so don’t take it as a threat. Most of us eeeeevil capitalist pig-dogs would much rather discuss things *gasp* peacefully until your head hurts from the sudden collision with logic. If, however, you really intend to take up arms and start a physical fight, know this:
We will finish it.

For the last few months, the current Looter in Chief has been telling us that low taxes which let people keep and spend more of their own money is somehow “giving” money to the “rich,” and that only government can create jobs by spending trillions of dollars it doesn’t have but plans to steal from the “rich” later. So how are they spending the “stimulus” money which they claim is supposed to help “main street” instead of the eeevil, rich corporations? Well, it appears that a few billion will be going to help Microsoft build a bridge connecting two of their parking lots.
Or, in other words corporations making jobs = “trickle down” economics and “failed policy.” Raising taxes and creating a Federal Ponzi scheme where the money is filtered through the pockets of politicians, bureaucrats, and lobbyists to accomplish the exact same thing = “Change You can Believe in!”
Can someone explain to me the difference between Bernie Madoff and President Obama? I mean, aside from the fact that Madoff’s victims willingly gave him money but the taxpayers are coerced at gun point..

SayUncle blogged that nobody seems to know what kind of weapons were used in the Alabama shooting. Some are saying fully automatic rifles were involved. Others are saying semiautomatic. One source said it looked like an AK-47, but that it “could have been an M-16.” How one can possibly confuse the two is mind boggling.
But, yea, despite (or perhaps because of) the confusion, the Brady Campaign to Promote Gun Myths couldn’t resist dancing in the blood and spreading disinformation. And once again, they’re lying about the SKS being an “assault rifle.” No matter how many times they say it, it’s still a lie. And are they seriously implying that a “38 caliber handgun” is a “military-style semiautomatic assault weapon” now too?

Just read on arfcom that some guy driving through Massachusetts to Maine got pulled over and cops searched him because they saw a gun case in his truck. Pants-shitilarity ensued.
An 18-year-old city resident is in a Massachusetts jail after state police said they found an arsenal in his truck.
ZOMG an arsenal!! Everybody panic? Oh. Wait. He only had two guns, some knives, and a set of brass knuckles. But not just any guns..
A Bushmaster rifle with a night scope and pistol grip.
Eeeek! A night scope and a pistol grip?! We’re all doomed!
Then there’s this:
The trooper ordered him out of the truck and patted him down — which turned up several rounds of ammunition, including a .50 caliber rifle bullet, and a knife, police said.
A single .50 cal bullet? Was it a whole cartridge? Or just the pointy bit? And, umm, what exactly is so scary about a round with no rifle to put it in? I’m betting it was probably inert and attached to a a key ring..
But, yea, if you really want to fill up your PSH bingo card, click here.
State police said troopers found a 16-inch Bushmaster assault rifle,
16 inch “assault rifle?” Umm, okay. Is that supposed to scare us because it’s too big or too small?
a Remington 12-gauge shotgun with a pistol grip,
Oh noes! Another pistol grip! hide the women and children!
seven 30-round magazine ammunition clips seven 30-round magazine ammunition clips and several boxes of ammunition.
Magazine ammunition clips? Did his truck have a high powered automatic manual transmission gear shifter too?
The assault rifle and the shotgun had both been modified and each gun was equipped with laser sightings, the paper reported.
Modified with laser sighting?! Well. That’s it. I’m heading to the bomb shelter and waiting for the Apocalypse! The guy might be able to blind me if I stare at his lasers too long! That’s even scarier than Lite-Brites!!11!1one!eleventy!
Huizinga was charged with marked lanes violation, possession of a large-capacity firearm, possession of a firearm, seven counts of possession of high-capacity feeding devices, possession of a dangerous weapon and unlawful possession of ammunition.
Now that seems a bit redundant. What’s next, charging him with being charged with a crime? Then charging him for the crime of being charged with being charged of a crime?
Huizinga could face federal charges, including transporting guns across state lanes and not having a license to carry firearms, the paper reported.
That’s funny. Federal law protects transporting firearms across State lines if the original and destination States don’t have ridiculous laws like, say, Massachusetts. Well, they’re supposed to anyway. This should be an interesting test case.
Oh, and, err, there’s no such thing as a Federal license to carry firearms. Good luck charging him with a non-existent crime.

Looks like CBS couldn’t resist jumping on the Mexican “assault weapon” banwagon.
“Half of what we seize, 55 percent are assault rifles. And this is what gives these groups this intimidation power. Over 17,000 assault rifles, throughout the last two years. Two thousand and 200 grenades, missile and rocket launchers. Fifty caliber sniper rifles,” the attorney general explained.
I must be going to the wrong damned American gun shows or something, as there’s never any missile launchers laying around..
But, yea, even though Pelosi and Reid have said no to a new AWB, and the Senate added an amendment to another law which overturns DC’s gun laws, I still think they’ll try to slip a new AWB by later. The reason? It seems odd to me that Carolyn “Shoulder Thing That Goes Up” McCarthy hasn’t submitted a new one by now. Isn’t that usually like the first (and only) thing she ever does? If I were a betting man, I’d wager that they’re waiting for some event (some cartel shooting up an American town, for instance) which they can use to bludgeon opposition in the House and Senate.

There’s a war going on south of the border involving vast, criminal organizations who seek to control the trade of drugs which are completely illegal in the United States. Said organizations are “employing automatic weapons and grenades” which are practically illegal in the United States. But the rocket scientists in the Obama administration think the solution is to ban certain cosmetic, ergonomic, and safety features on semi-automatic rifles?
Seeing as the cartels already ignore the bans on smuggling, drugs, grenades, machine guns, assassination, and mass murder, why exactly are they going to obey this ban? And, err, how exactly would that even change anything when they’re already using automatic weapons and grenades which have nothing to do with the proposed ban? Isn’t that a bit like banning attack hamsters in order to prevent vicious dog bites?
And why is the guy who just called us all cowards so eager to surrender one of our Constitutional rights because of gangsters in another country..

ACORN has apparently begun breaking into homes and planting their proverbial flag..
“This is our house now,” said Louis Beverly, ACORN.
And on Thursday afternoon, they literally broke the foreclosure padlock right off the front door and then broke into the house, letting Hanks back in for the first time in months.
Since they think this is a legitimate act of civil disobedience, I suppose they wouldn’t mind if someone were to kick in the door to one of their offices and claim it..

In a speech today before his henchmen at the DOJ today, our illustrious Attorney General said the United States is a “nation of cowards” because we won’t talk about race or something. This is quite rich coming from a guy who helped send (and cover up for) other people to die and kill because he soils his pants at the thought of guns in private hands. Or helping to send (and cover up for) a heavily armed tactical team to kidnap a seven year old in order to ship him off to be a propaganda tool for Castro. Or, well, you get the picture.
If Holder really wants to talk about race, he should start by explaining why he’s so fanatical about pushing an anti-gun agenda based on Jim Crow, slave codes, and Nazi laws. However, like most of his radical friends, he’s probably more interested in bleating about “feelings” than having any serious discussion involving facts and reason. Were we to have an honest, non-sugar-coated discussion here, one might argue that Holder is nothing but an Uncle Tom.
But that would be sinking to their level. Oops.

They’ll call it a “12-caliber gun that can pump four bullets with each squeeze of the trigger” first. At the same time they expect you to believe that “nobody wants to keep you out of the deer woods.” Though I suppose you could still go into whatever the hell “deer woods” are with an assault branch pointed stick..

It would appear that NY Governor Patterson has picked a gun loving, tax hating, Blue Dog to replace Hillary in the Senate. And Carolyn “Shoulder Thing That Goes Up” McCarthy is pissed! I’m not sure if this is what President Obama had in mind, but it’s the kind of Change that gives me Hope.
While I generally disagree with even the Blue Dog Dems (and most Republicans for that matter) on Federal intervention into other areas outside of their Constitutional powers, I don’t mind politely discussing things with them as long as they’re not trying to disarm us so they can force it down our throat. So, yea, more Dems like this please.
