A woman who was handcuffed by police while she was trying to rescue her kids at the Uvalde school massacre, said police are threatening her with an obstruction of justice charge to keep her quiet about their actions. Remember I said they would take the 5th if they go to court. There are a lot of really good cops out there, including at least a few at the Uvalde massacre. But these aren’t them.
And an armed neighbor who was chasing the Uvalde killer into the school as the attack unfolded was stopped by the Keystone Cops. Of course they didn’t bother to stop the killer.
I said that already.
- Dozens of them. Prevented by an armed citizen. Yes, it happens and not infrequently. But as I’ve said before it’s not much reported because that sort of story does not support the media’s mission of disarming and dominating you.
- A proper response. Butler County, Ohio, Sheriff Richard Jones says his office is offering free Conceal Carry permit classes for anyone who is associated with a school in the county.

The main difference between the 1960s and today, regarding massacres? Today we have both major mass media and the internet/tic-toc/instagram, etc., which are complicit in glorifying and promoting each tragedy and challenge the next sicko to exceed the body count and the media hits. It’s pretty much unheard of (so far) to have one of these massacres at a major media facility. That’s not because they’re gun free zones.
The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC)/FPC Law and the Second Amendment Foundation, joined by Rainier Arms, LLC and a private citizen, Gabriella Sullivan, have filed a federal Second and Fourteenth Amendment lawsuit challenging the State of Washington’s unconstitutional ban on common firearm magazines. The case is Gabriella Sullivan, et al. v. Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson, et al.
The parents of a 10-year-old victim in the mass shooting in Uvalde, Tex., and a staff member at Robb Elementary School are taking their first steps toward legal action against the gunmaker that made the semiautomatic rifle used by the killer in the massacre. The parents sent a letter to Daniel Defense seeking information about the Georgia based company’s “marketing to teens and children,” according to their attorneys. The letter sent to the gunmaker, obtained by The Washington Post, also asks Daniel Defense to provide communications with the Uvalde shooter. If filed, such a lawsuit will be a challenge to the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. (FYI, you don’t see a lot of “communications” between gun makers and end users, as they do not sell direct.) There are a few other similar lawsuits pending.
Action items to oppose federal gun control currently under way.
The U.S. House passed a comprehensive gun control/ban bill this week, but I understand it has little chance in the Senate. Keep the pressure on.
You can’t make this stuff up.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” – U.S. Sen. Majority Leader Charles Schumer (9 Prospect Park West, Brooklyn, NY)
Fake terms (lies)
I’ve said it before, but here’s a short list. These terms aren’t real things. Do not use them or accept their use. They are pejorative and not legitimate.
- Gun violence/murder/assault
- Assault weapons
- Assault rifles, when referring to anything not selectable to fully automatic
- Active shooter, or mass shooting, when referring to killers
- Common sense gun laws
- “I support the Second Amendment, BUT…”
- “I’m a hunter, BUT…”
- “No one wants to take away your guns…”
- “Sporting use”
President Shotgun Joe Biden now claims 9mm pistol bullets will blow your lungs right out of your body. He also continues to lie about the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN IS A LIAR. PERIOD.
National Public Radio – which now seems to have ditched that name in favor of NPR – claims the AR-15 is designed to blow targets apart, and that .223 rounds from AR-15s will decapitate human beings who are shot with them by others. Nope, not with a single round. That’s what chainsaw bayonets are for.

- More Biden felonies
- Hundreds of Top CEOs Urge Congress to Pass Gun-Control Legislation to Address “Public Health Crisis” (Just scroll down to the signatures/companies. I’ve never heard of most of them.)
- Governors opposing your right to defend your life
- McConaughey: Undersized knowledge meets oversized influence. Meanwhile, he has made a small fortune executive producing and starring in TV shows and movies using guns.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis vetoed $3.1 billion from the state budget, allegedly in retaliation to block a new state-funded practice facility for the Tampa Bay Rays baseball team after the team tweeted an appeal for donations to the gun ban group Everytown for Gun Safety. You go, Gov. DeSantis is also leading in presidential straw polls for the 2024 election.

What Doesn’t Work
- CDC: Gun Laws Don’t Reduce Violence
- Federal Government: 1994 “Assault Weapons” Ban Did Not Reduce Violence
- MSN Finds An Acorn
- Would proposed gun control measures reduce massacres? No. But it’s irrelevant anyway. Your civil rights aren’t justified by any measure of crime control effectiveness.
Questions, we have questions.
So someone wants to discuss gun control? Fine, let’s start with answering these questions. Then we can have a discussion.

Defensive Shotgun vs. AR
Full disclosure: I’m not an expert and I have both handy. But I always grab the shotgun for a bump in the night, unless I have reason to believe I will need long range capability.
Weapon Handling in an Active Killer Event
A few words about speed
“I don’t make fast draws. I pull my gun deliberately, aim carefully, and don’t jerk the trigger.” – WYATT EARP
“Fast is fine, but accuracy is final.” – WYATT EARP
“The most important lesson I learned from those proficient gunfighters (starting in 1871) was that the winner of a gunplay usually was the man who took his time.” – WYATT EARP
“Whenever you get into a ‘row’ (gunfight), be sure and take your time. I’ve known many a fellow to slip up for shooting in a hurry.” – WILD BILL HICKOK
“If you get in a gunfight, don’t let yourself feel rushed. Take your time, fast.” – CAPTAIN JOHN REYNOLDS HUGHES – Texas Ranger
“Levy downed his opponent, because he looked through the sights of his pistol, which is a very essential thing to do when shooting at an adversary who is returning your fire.” – BAT MASTERSON
Federal Premium’s new HEVI-Bismuth shot will be available in three 20-gauge and six 12-gauge loads. The pellets have a density of 9.6 g/cc, which is greater than steel loads. This “Hevi” stuff is the same density as regular Bismuth-Tin shot. Lead density is 11.34 g/cc. In addition, all loads will also feature Federal’s famous rear-deploying FLITECONTROL FLEX wad for tighter shot patterns and improved downrange performance.
Federal’s new Premier Bismuth uses the same Bismuth shot in four 12-gauge varieties including two 3-inch shell options, three 20-gauge options, and one option each for .410 bore 28-gauge, and 16-gauge.

It’s not “run, hide, fight.” It’s “fight, run, hide.” FIGHT and make HIM run and hide. – paraphrased from Mas Ayoob
“We must consider measures to protect schools with something more than an aluminum sign declaring the grounds as a ‘gun-free’ zone.” – NSSF
“In the aftermath of the Uvalde atrocity, a BBC producer asked me why an ordinary citizen would need an AR15. I suggested he ask a Ukrainian.” – Massad Ayoob
