Gun owners: Anything but Fewer Guns


I live in South Georgia and I have a gun collection.
I have them because I like them and I can own them.

At the same time, the right to own a gun is not absolute, nor should it be.
Children who will be around guns should be taught how to handle them, as I was.
In that light, the 4-H S.A.F.E. (Shooting Awareness, Fun and Education) program
is a perfect example of taking children who know nothing about firearms and teaching
them safety, ethics, responsibility and how to enjoy the shooting sports through
actually shooting guns. S.A.F.E. covers shotguns, BB rifles and pistols and .22 rifles.

JROTC programs in high schools around the nation promote shooting sports with
competition air rifle teams. Another great shooting education effort, endorsed and
supported by the federal government, is the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP).
These and more educational programs at the local level will teach children the truth
about guns. The CMP endorses the JROTC shooting programs and hosts an annual
national competition.

That's all fine, but all the training in the world wouldn't have stopped the insane bastards
from shooting up Tucson and Colorado and that Sandy Hook school in Connecticut.

The ONLY thing that could prevent mass shootings by the insane is fewer assault weapons.
You can't tell when a sane 20-year old is losing his sanity until he shoots 50 people.

The trick is limiting the damage he can do by banning assault weapons
and limiting the bullets in a clip.

Or, we could just talk about it until the next mass shooting.

Mom Shoots Asshole Intruder
Becomes Inspiration to Gun Nuts


A Georgia mother who shot an intruder at her home has become a part of the gun control debate,
with some firearms enthusiasts touting her as a textbook example of responsible gun ownership.

Melinda Herman grabbed a handgun and hid in a crawl space with her two children when a man
broke in last week and approached the family at their home near Atlanta, police said. Herman called
her husband on the phone, and with him reminding her of the lessons she recently learned at a
shooting range, Herman opened fire, seriously wounding the burglary suspect.

After Donnie Herman told his wife police were on the way, he started shouting:
"She shot him. She's shootin' him. She's shootin' him. She's shootin' him. She's shootin' him."
"Shoot him again! Shoot him!" Donnie Herman yelled. He told the dispatcher he heard screaming,
but he seems to get increasingly worried when he doesn't hear anything from his wife.

Melinda Herman told police she started shooting the man when he opened the door to the crawl space.
The man pleaded with her to stop, but she kept firing until she had emptied her rounds.

The NRA tweeted a link to a news story about the shooting, and support poured in from others online,
hailing Herman as a hero. The local sheriff said he was proud of the way she handled the situation.

First, a shot of Chinaco for the brave lady who protected her herself and her kids.

Second, seems to me this hurts the NRA.

Melinda Herman just proved you can defend your home with a simple handgun.
This lady didn't need an AK-47 with a hundred-round clip to get the job done.

Nobody needs an AK-47 with a hundred-round clip.
Can the Left figure a way to list the facts and win this argument?

Gun Appreciation Day Is Jan. 19
Shoot someone to show your love of guns

Saying they're following the example of last year's racist/sexist Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,
"gun rights" handjobs announced today that they're calling on like-minded Americans to visit gun
stores, gun ranges and gun shows on Jan. 19 in a show of unity they're calling "Gun Appreciation Day."

It's no coincidence that the 19th is Saturday of the weekend when Obama will be sworn into office
for a second time. Organizers say the date was chosen "to send a message to Washington two days
before Obama's second inauguration." They're worried about what they see as the "Obama's
post-Sandy Hook assault on gun rights."

Subject: Folsom Prison Blues


You asked an interesting question about Johnny Cash.  Some things to know about him:

1.  He never spent time in jail.  Maybe one night in Georgia for possession of large quantities
     of drugs and attempting to bribe the sheriff, maybe another night or two due to his drug
     addictions that led to the breakup of his first marriage.

2.  As far as I have been able to tell, he was only in Folsom Prison once -- to give a concert. 
     Nonetheless, his song "Folsom Prison Blues" was popular and many inmates were sure
     he could only write such a true-to-life song if he had been incarcerated.

3.  He is never known to have shot anyone; that line about shooting someone just to watch
     them die sounds like a line from one of his songs.

4.  Although he consistently avoided politics, many of his songs--in particular,
     "Man in Black"--are unabashedly liberal.

5.  There are stories that he originated Elvis' famous line, "Thank you.  Thank you very much."

Can Christie save the GOP?


A pair of polls out this week shows the dire state the GOP finds itself in — and a way out
of the wilderness, should Republicans choose to take it.

Poll No. 1: Rasmussen Reports found that Teabagger views are at a new low. Only 8 percent
of likely voters considered themselves teabaggers, down from 24 percent in 2010. According to
Rasmussen (which has a pro-Republican bias), unfavorable views of the movement topped
favorable views, 49 percent to 30 percent.

Poll No. 2: Fairleigh Dickinson University found that 73 percent of New Jersey voters approved
of the job Chris Christie, is doing — near his all-time high. Even 62 percent of Democrats approve
of Christie, as well as 69 percent of racial minorities and 70 percent of women. The top would-be
challenger to Christie in November’s gubernatorial election is trailing him by 33 percentage points.

Yeah, go ahead and put ALL your eggs in the Christie basket.

What's he going to run on, the it's-time-to-deny-ourselves-instant-gratification platform?

Or maybe he'll run on the we-need-to--tighten-our-belts platform?

I don't know why we're not getting any bids on this fine Native American art.
I've been to galleries in Santa Fe, Scottsdale and Sedona and trust me, this is quality work.

Subject: fund-raising with art

Bart --  Interestingly, the past couple of days I'd been thinking exactly what
Mario the Photographer suggested so I attached a couple of photos for you: 

A black and white and a colored drawing -- pick one or use both if you wish.

People tend to be more attracted to color but I prefer my black and whites. 
I sell my drawings for $200 to give you an idea of the value I place on them.

Hope this idea brings in some cash for you...

Is Al Franken Bulletproof?
GOP seems afraid to run against him


The National Journal today is out with a look at the 2014 Minnesota Senate race.

The newsiest bit is former senator Norm Coleman (R-Handjob) making clear he wants
no part of a rematch with Franken after Franken kicked his crooked ass in 2008.

And in fact, Coleman seems to think Franken will be pretty hard to beat:

“You can’t play handball in an open field. At this point there’s been no candidate,”
said Coleman, “He’s been pretty much invisible. In that sense he hasn’t created a
lot of enemies. I don’t know if that’s his strategy, but it’s a pretty good strategy if it is.”

The list of potential, formidable candidates is short.  Coleman categorically said he wasn’t
going to run against Franken in 2014, denying the GOP one of its best-known possible challengers.

Coleman’s candid take is on-point, in that for the GOP this is all about getting a qualified challenger.
But there aren’t many that come to mind.

Franken deserves re-election for making rape illegal again
after the Bush bastards legalized it when they invaded Iraq.

Bart, the car is a 1962 Rolls Royce, featured in the mid-60s show "Burke's Law," starring Gene Barry.
 Bruce in NM

I watched an episode of Burke's Law the other day.
Some lady fainted and Burke gave her some brandy (instead of water) when she woke up.

She asked where he got the brandy and Burke replied, "From the bar in my car."

Classic - made me think of Sam Kinison.

I have no way to reach you to thank you - so I'm trying this.

That was a very nice gift - we bought chocolate with it :)

Know Your Classics

Bart, that quote is from John Steinbeck's East of Eden.
Amazing book, amazing movie.

Steinbeck's family were friends of my great-grandparents.
He was a bit of an outcast in his own family, and definitely
an outcast in Salinas because his characters were thinly veiled
exposures of locals. In EofE, Kate is one of the most compelling
villains in all of literature.
