WRIC is reporting that a woman in Chesterfield Virginia used a gun to shot her husband as he was attacking her. Witnesses reportedly corroborate the woman’s claim that she used the gun in self-defense. The man is apparently in the hospital and awaiting charges while the woman is not expected to be charged. “We determined there was a domestic altercation and the wife had acted in self-defense” said Chesterfield Police lieutenant RandyHorowitz. (h/t Guns Save Lives) WRIC Richmond News and Weather – If not for the firearm she used, how would this woman have stopped her attack? Without the gun
Everybody’s favorite fringe-left Senator of dubious heritage is back in the news today. As crazy as ever, Elizabeth Warren is now trying to figure out why our minimum wage isn’t $22 an hour. So, if you’re a low-skill worker who already can’t find a job with the minimum wage at $7 an hour rest assured that Warren is fighting to make sure you never find a job again. But, hey, at least Elizabeth Warren is consistent and pays all of the people who work for her at least as much as she thinks minimum wage should be. Oh wait, of
If any of you recall the end of the movie Thank You For Smoking the anti-smoking senator, named Ortolan Finistirre, tries to have cigarettes erased from old pictures & movies. He does so because he thinks it makes cigarettes look cool to young people. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has, basically, called for exactly the same thing with his ridiculous proposal to force store owners to hide their cigarettes from public view. In honor of Bloomberg’s decision to imitate satire I present you with this photoshop. And, in honor of Bloomberg’s itchy nanny finger, here’s this bonus photoshop.
One of the most obnoxious liberal talking points on guns involves the idea that guns, in and of themselves, cause gun violence. Apparently, as this argument goes, guns or “gun culture” cause law abiding citizens to transform into murderous nuts. In other words more guns must mean more gun violence. The argument was famously made by sports writer Jason Whitlock and forwarded by Bob Costas on Sunday Night Football after a player murdered his girlfriend and killed himself. According to Costas and Whitlock guns “exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than
In the wake of a gun control hearing involving the father of one of the victims of the tragic Sandy Hook shooting BuzzFeed, The Telegraph, and other liberal media outlets have resorted to deceptive editing tricks in order to smear gun owners. A video promoted by all of the aforementioned sites purportedly shows the “father of Newtown victim heckled by NRA supporters”. However, when the heavily edited video of Neil Heslin is compared to the raw video, available at Twitchy, it becomes apparent that important context has been removed from the interaction. Clearly the gun owners in the crowd are
I know that many journalists are looking at this from a perspective of balancing journalistic ethics against circulation numbers, especially in this post, but I’m coming from a different point of view. I’m far more concerned about the innocent gun owners that got doxed. What’d they do to deserve that? And, yes, the addresses published by the Journal News are public record. They shouldn’t be, but they are. However, these are real people with real lives who did nothing wrong to deserve having their names & addresses publicized like this. There are plenty of other things that the paper could have
James O’Keefe is back with another sting video. This time he and Project Veritas are embarrassing anti-gun journalists. Watch as the hypocrisy of many in the liberal media’s campaign against guns is exposed for all to see. Interesting… so, these anti-gun crusaders are afraid that if criminals know their homes are gun free because they don’t want to be caught defenseless against them? Guess they know how the rest of us feel now, huh?
Continuing my gun misinformation series from yesterday I think that it’s a good time to clear up the difference between semi-automatic and fully automatic firearms. It is one of the most basic pieces of information regarding firearms and their function, but it is also one that is apparently least understood by gun control activists. Even Bob Costas, who went on national television to advocate for more gun control just recently, clearly doesn’t understand what semi-automatic means. I’ve seen many people over the last few days repeat Costas’s mistake. These people try to sound reasonable and say they don’t want to
