Life through the eyes of a gun-loving, redneck rivethead from the country trying to live the libertarian dream in the not-so-big city.

How Not To Pocket Carry

Gun charge dismissed against Rhode Island Rep. Petrarca.

It seems the Representative managed to discharge a pistol in his pocket while fishing for his keys.

Remember these best practices if you choose to pocket carry.  The negligent discharge you prevent may be your own.
  • Keep your booger hook off the bang switch.
  • Use a holster.
  • Put your keys in a different pocket than your pistol.

Update On Libel Of NRA

I recently pointed out a libelous image on the Protest Easy Guns Facebook page.

As much as I would love the full credit of the dishonest commentary in that photo to lie with Protest Easy Guns, they are simply fans of the offensive insinuation presented in it.  The image was created by one of Canada's esteemed "authorized journalists," a political cartoonist, Aislin, from the beloved fourth estate.

Swiss Doctors Sell Out CItizenry

Doctors in Switzerland are being used to push for prohibitions on the storage of militia arms in homes. There is a linked video at the the article where the camera crews visit some citizens ad ask to see where they keep there militia rifles.  My favorite response is from the sensible man who refuses.  Hopefully common sense will prevail, and this disingenuous measure will fail.

A linked photo gallery has some choice photos of Swiss shooters that spans numerous decades.  There is a heartbreaking photo of some Schmidt-Rubin carbines being turned in for destruction.

H/T to the global gun-grabbers @ TheIANSA for tweeting the link.

When Kinder Eggs Are Outlawed

When Kinder Eggs are outlawed, only outlaws can eat Kinder Eggs!

According to the CBC article:
U.S. authorities have banned the candy because they come with a plastic toy inside that could, if eaten, choke a small child.
Maybe parents shouldn't be letting their kids eat the toy inside the Kinder Egg.

The resentment I feel right now toward the nanny-staters and the perpetual dumbing down of America can only be soothed by ovate German chocolate goodness with a toy surprise inside.

Protest Easy Guns Libels NRA

The normally pathetic and illogical pleading of the anti-gunners has ramped up to despicable frenzied levels in the wake of the recent tragedy in Tuscon.  Their output has devolved into a blood orgy, the likes of which is normally reserved for zombie films.

Never known for letting blatant lying interfere with their tyrannical agenda, unrepentant gun-grabbers, Protest Easy Guns attempt to imply a connection between the NRA and the unhinged assassin of Chief Judge John M. Roll via a tastelessly edited photo on their Facebook page.

I am incensed to say the least.

Why Do They Hate Education?

The Detroit News published a pretty impartial article on open carry.  It mentions an educational children's book written by Brian Jeffs, titled "My Parents Open Carry."

Since the press skimped on the PSH, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Ownership stepped up to spray their usual hysterics.

The Original Only One Loses Lawsuit

The original "Only One," former DEA agent Lee Paige, had his lawsuit against the DEA dismissed last week in federal court. If you aren't familiar with the incident that kicked the "only ones" meme into overdrive and led to Paige's failed lawsuit, the preceding link has the video along with their post.

Hopefully Lee won't shoot his mouth (or his his foot) off in the future.
