Taxpayer Money "Well Spent"!

“It’s a pretty good-looking group of citizens,” he said. “We didn’t expect any gangsters.”

Detective Bill Flannery, busy identifying the guns collected in Canoga Park, said he was surprised by “the number of guns that little old ladies are bringing in.” [link]

Did they really expect anything different? "Gangsters" realize they must use the gun as a means of intimidation.

Even one of their own replied they did not expect any "gangsters" to turn in guns. Aren't you glad that in the midst of this recession your tax dollars can be spent on things that help the community you live in? I sure am!

A Personal Apology

I would like to apologize to my regular and non-regular readers for last week's lapse of material. I had to be off on a job related training on short notice, and alas, I have no laptop as of yet. On a positive note, the training for my job was Aikido Control Techniques, which only expanded on my knowledge of personal defense.

Misplaced Lies of the MSM Regarding Guns in Mexico

Geez...what a title for a post, anyway, had to get the point across, and on to today's Gun Rights Examiner Column!.

Quote for the Day

The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people; it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government...lest it come to dominate our lives and interests. --Patrick Henry

More Things That Should Be Banned

Many of my regular readers know that I am always on the lookout for things that are potentially dangerous and deadly. I think I may have found something that should be on this list, but has been overlooked most likely due to its outward appearance.

"Memphis police are on the hunt for a woman they say used a baby as a weapon to fight off security guards during a shoplifting attempt Wednesday." [link]

Anyone else up for urging politicians to start some sort of exploratory committee to look into the banning of this potentially dangerous weapon?

Top 40 Reasons to Support Gun Control

Ran across this and thought it was funny. I will give you a short preview of what is on the list.

"2. Washington DC's low murder rate of 80.6 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control, and Arlington, VA's high murder rate of 1.6 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control.
9. When confronted by violent criminals, you should "put up no defense — give them what they want, or run" (Handgun Control Inc. Chairman Pete Shields, Guns Don't Die - People Do, 1981, p. 125).
12. The 2nd Amendment, ratified in 1791, refers to the National Guard, which was created by an act of Congress in 1903.
13. The National Guard, funded by the federal government, occupying property leased to the federal government, using weapons owned by the federal government, punishing trespassers under federal law, is a state militia."
