The Tate Reeves (R) for governor campaign reminds us that his opponent, Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood (D), opposed Mississippi’s Castle Doctrine law. We also noticed that he also calls himself the chief law enforcement officer in the state. But it’s ATTORNEY general, Jim. The last I heard, attorneys are officers of the courts. That’s the judicial branch. And guess what? Right there in the MS Constitution it has the Attorney General in the Judicial branch. Law enforcement officers are in the executive branch. Do we really want a governor or attorney general who does not understand this?
I, and undoubtedly many of you, have been falsely accused by leftist snowflakes of being paranoid or fearful, and thus arming ourselves in order to work up the courage to leave our houses. We of course know better. Now a new study (language warning) conducted at Florida State University finds that gun owners actually report fewer phobias and fears of becoming a victim than non-gun owners, and that “There’s little evidence to suggest that gun ownership is an effect of fear.”
I’m not a psychologist, but I know crazy when I see it. Here are the three possible reasons for the politically correct to make their accusations:
- They are extremely naive and unrealistic.
- They are simply evil and want you defenseless so they or their preferred gestapo will have easy control.
- They themselves are fearful, including fearful of taking responsibility for their own safety. To admit that self-preservation is a good idea for us is to admit that they are incompetent at taking care of themselves. Unwilling to admit that, they instead claim that there is no reason to be careful or prepared (so they can happily live in the utopia of their twisted minds), and therefore anyone who is prepared is to be put down as “paranoid.”
One wonders if these same people buy life (death) insurance, other kinds of insurance, fire extinguishers and smoke alarms, first aid kits, etc.
FBI’s 2018 Uniform Crime Report
Here’s the page on murders. Note the number using rifles of any type compared with other weapons.
Also, the number of violent crimes committed in the United States continues to drop: “In 2018, violent crime was down 3.3 percent from the 2017 number. Property crimes also dropped 6.3 percent, marking the 16th consecutive year [that] these offenses declined.” This while CCW licenses are at an all-time high of 18.6 million.
Mass attack & “active shooter” stats & strategies
Strategies. READ THIS.
“In every active shooter attack in the U.S., when there has been an aggressive, armed person who saw or heard the attack when it started, they’ve been able to stop the shooter 100% of the time.”

Anti-gun Leake County, MS, Sheriff Greg Waggoner has announced his pending retirement. Waggoner was employed as a conservation officer/supervisor with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks (MDWFP) beginning in 1976, until he was elected sheriff in 2000. At MDWFP, Waggoner supported the Department’s outlawing the hunting of turkey, waterfowl and nighttime varmints/predators with firearms and loads of the hunters’ choice. During that debacle, it was promised that the Department would not again attempt such a thing — a promise that was soon broken. It was also alleged by his former MDWFP coworkers that he illegally ran for sheriff while still employed by the MDWFP, in violation of state law (MCA 49-1-19).
“The contributors to the NRA are responsible for all the mass killings that are taking place with guns and ammunition provided by the gun industry, which is partnered with the NRA!” — San Francisco nutball Lynda Carson
Dept. of Idiocy
Just in case we have a reader who doesn’t know, generally:
- Don’t shoot folks trying to break into unoccupied buildings or vehicles.
- Don’t shoot anyone who is not presenting a serious and immediate AOJ (ability, opportunity, jeopardy) threat.
- Don’t shoot at folks who are leaving (see previous item).
- Call 911 or a non-emergency police number if appropriate as soon as reasonably possible, not as late as possible. If a gun was brandished, threatened or used by either party, or there has been an assault or felony, call the cops.
- Don’t tamper with or dispose of evidence.
Leading UK cutlery manufacturer Rayware has developed kitchen knives with rounded ends which makes it “impossible” for an attacker to stab someone. I guess they don’t have files or grinders in England. Try rubbing them on your skulls, you knotheads — that’ll turn ’em pointy quick enough.
Researchers at UC Davis have found in a broad study that there is a “disturbing connection” between alcohol use and “gun violence.”
I guess they’re gonna try to ban alcohol now.
CBS/60 Minutes just plain lies. And so do all the other major media outlets, including your local TV and newspapers. Do your own research.
Shotgun Joe Biden claimed this week that more Americans are dying from gun violence than “anything else happening.” However we note that homicides and suicides combined make up less than 3% of all deaths, with heart disease and cancer responsible for nearly 60% of deaths per year. Out of the top 100 causes of death, the CDC ranks accidental firearms discharges at #100 (.pdf document), firearms homicides at #107 and legal intervention (by all methods) at #109. Salmonella is #1. Must be that new non-racist math.
The Only Ones
A 33-year-old NYPD officer was engaged, with other officers, in a violent struggle with a suspect last week when some of the officers fired 10 rounds, two of which struck the first officer, who had also fired 5 rounds. The first officer and the 27-year-old suspect were killed. That’s the second “friendly fire” fatality for NYPD this year. There have also been nine NYPD suicides this year.
An unidentified off-duty St. Louis police officer accidentally fired a shot into the ground while chasing two suspected shoplifters outside a suburban shopping mall. The officer said he squeezed the trigger because he was startled.
A federal grand jury has indicted 39-year-old Air Force Master Sgt. Michael Reimers, of Las Vegas, on two counts of distributing a controlled substance, one count of engaging in the business of dealing in firearms without a license, and one count of selling a firearm to a prohibited person. Authorities allege that MSgt. Reimers, who is stationed at Nellis AFB, sold an unidentified amount of cocaine and more than 50 grams of methamphetamine from July 2019 to September 2019, and illegally sold an AK-47 (sic) 7.62mm caliber rifle, a .25 caliber handgun, and a 12 gauge shotgun without a license — the shotgun being sold to an illegal alien.
Three police officers and a police administrator were killed and at least one other person was wounded this week in a knife attack by an alleged “Islamic convert” police employee at the police headquarters in Paris. The attacker, reportedly using a ceramic knife, was eventually fatally shot at the scene. Good thing they have gun control and gun free zones.
You don’t need a gun. Just call 911.
NRA tax status
Capitol Hill Democrats are asking the IRS to investigate the NRA due to its alleged election meddling. The NRA is a tax-exempt social-welfare organization under section 501(c)(4) of the federal tax code. It also has affiliated entities that are tax-exempt under sections 501(c)(3) and 527 of the tax code. We note that a 501[c] entity – such as Second Amendment Foundation and the NRA Foundation may engage in litigation but may not influence legislation nor support candidates. A 501[c] entity – such as NRA and NRA-ILA – may lobby for or against legislation but may not support candidates. A 527 entity – such as NRA-PVF and other PAC’s may support candidates. None are required to pay federal income taxes but only donations to a 501[c] are tax-deductible.
Mississippi’s Extravagant Extravaganza?
Online MS Hunter Ed course
The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks is offering an online interactive hunter education full certification class on the agency’s website for residents ages 16 and over.
The class certificate can be presented as a digital or paper copy to license vendors to purchase a hunting license.
Residents who are under 16 who take the internet course will also have to attend a three-hour classroom course before being certified.
Mississippi law requires that everyone born after January 1, 1972 must complete a hunter education course before purchasing a Mississippi hunting license. Licenses are generally required for hunters ages 16 and over.
Classroom courses continue to be offered around the state.
More acreage available
The US Fish and Wildlife Service is expanding hunting and fishing opportunities at 77 National Wildlife Refuges and 15 National Fish Hatcheries, accounting for 1.4 million additional acres being opened to sportsmen.

Good video. ~14 mins.
English. Learn it.
The word is “binocular,” not a “pair of binoculars,” which means two binoculars. The prefix “bi,” from the Latin bini, means double or two. Add it to “ocular,” from the Latin oculus, meaning eye, and you’ve described a two-eyed instrument. A binocular.
Dick’s Sporting Goods (DSG) is selling eight of its 35 Field & Stream branded stores to Sportsman’s Warehouse (SW), who will re-name them as SW stores. DSG is also expected to remove hunting gear from all the DSG stores (125 more this year) and sell the remaining 27 Field & Stream stores. We hope that SW and any other buyers will have fantabulous success selling black guns at those locations.
