“The paradigm that government should have a monopoly of small arms implies the surreal normative postulate that citizens—or, rather, subjects—should be treated as the Jews were in Nazi Germany.”
– Stephen P. Halbrook,
“Rome remained free for four hundred years and Sparta eight hundred, although their citizens were armed all that time; but many other states that have been disarmed have lost their liberties in less than forty years.”
― Stephen P. Halbrook,
Publisher’s Note: I am a non-voter and not a fan of any inhabitant of the Offal Office but I have to admit, I am impressed with the peace efforts pursued by The Amphibian right now with his trip to Singapore to meet with the nK communist leader. No one has used this simple hands-on approach to trying to bridge the gap. I wish he would do the same with Iran after calling the ball in the Middle East and bring all the soldiers and other American mischief machinery home to real jobs in America.
In other news, if you want to know just how amazing it is to be alive today, go to a Dollar Store and spend half an hour looking around at a bounty no communist country could match. The free market in America manages to deliver this in spite of a government regulatory regime of monstrous proportions that soils and shits on everything it touches. I can just imagine the riches available to every human once individual industry is untethered from the statist shackles.
I would also recommend that every polling place in America replace the lever in the booth with a phallic lever and ask the voters to use their mouths to select their new masters. It would make the experience more authentic and reflect great things to come.
You now have six months and counting of opportunities to plus up your stores and munitions until January comes if the Grand Old Politburo manages to fuck themselves out of power in the November Plantation Owner Selection contests across the nation. The Collapsitarian (h/t to Skip, the Village Armorer) Party has yet to get off the ground but I may just become a voter again if SMOD and Cthulhu manage to top that ticket in 2020.
Yes, we have been experiencing regular outages.
And yes, I have reading more Halbrook lately.-BB
Herschel posted a video of a man successfully injecting lead in his junk through an ND entirely of his own making. The usual suspects started to blame the carry modality; in this case, Appendix Inside the Waistband (AIWB) carry.
I can’t account for the reason for the ND or what pressed the trigger.
When I don’t OC, I do carry AIWB. I have no other way for my body-type to do so because dedicated IWB holsters don’t conceal well and I don’t want to have two sizes of pants in my closet.
Kydex holsters in the waistband prepositioned can be very dangerous carry options for the reasons this gentleman apparently demonstrated. As with all things gun, you practice to perfection and repetition the little shit. The engineering profession teaches you that attention to detail is the secret sauce for success.
You never re-holster a weapon without checking the magazine and a chamber check. You clean them regularly on a schedule. You don’t put a Punisher symbol on the back plate. You wear it everywhere so it becomes second nature and you are not fiddle-fucking with it. Even at home.
You either live with guns or use them every now and again. I decided to live with them both at work when I served in the Legions and at home and out and about. I am strong hand right.
