"While walking around our nation’s capital this morning I ran smack dab into the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms’ roving billboard o’ gun truths. For those of you who don’t know, the CCRKBA put this vehicle together to counter the Mayors Against Illegal Guns roving billboard o’ gun grabbing propaganda which states that 34 people are killed by guns in America every day. Something tells me the statistics aren’t really working in their favor on this one ..."

... "If we’re to follow Sgt. Stucky’s 'logic' to its inevitable conclusion, and if we accept that the place for guns is not the classroom, we must also accept that there is no place for guns in any public setting—at least by non-'Only Ones.' Because any danger 'unofficial' armed adults would pose on campus premises would apply to wherever they are." ...

"As has recently been pointed out here before, the momentum behind defensive handgun carry in Illinois is stronger than it has ever been in the past, with Illinois HB 148, the 'Family and Personal Protection Act,' having a real chance of passage. That would be a nightmare not only for Illinois anti-gun groups (which were already suffering from dwindling funding), but for national 'gun control' groups as well. Illinois, as one of only two states with no provision for legal concealed carry for private citizens ..." ...

"On March 29, 1911, the United States Government adopted the Colt .45 caliber semiautomatic pistol as its standard issue military sidearm. The instrument has served with distinction ever since. Though replaced as general standard in the mid-1980s with the 9mm Beretta M9, the 1911 .45 has remained in service with military pistol teams across the services – and with the Army’s Delta Force and the Marine Expeditionary Unit/Special Operations Command (MEU-SOC) – for the duration." ...

"A few years ago, I was struck with a nervous disorder. I spent most of 2007 and 2008 in excruciating pain, in and out of the hospital, undergoing test after test, trying to determine why my lower back and leg muscles would not stop twitching, spasming and cramping. I spent the better part of three years regaining my strength, teaching my legs and lower back how to work together again. I’ve come a long way since then, but I can no longer physically protect myself, my wife and my four daughters. One thing I’ve learned from this ordeal: buy a firearm that you can use instead of one that 'looks cool' or 'packs a lot of punch' . . ." ...

That is also why the Tiahrt Amendment had the support of the Fraternal Order of Police, the largest police organization in the nation. Simply said, it wanted to protect its officers."

Conservatives and militia leaders were offended when they caught wind of the 'plot' of an active shooter drill scheduled for a local school. 'Operation Closed Campus' was based on the idea of a racist high school student and his pal going postal over open borders. After the story hit the ‘net, officials backpedalled, backtracked, finger-pointed and weaseled. When the shitstorm reached its peak, those involved pulled the plug, allegedly due to a threat to enact the sim for real. Since then, we’ve unearthed the playbook for Operation Close Campus. ..." ...
