How a Card Carrying Liberal Professor Became a Card Carrying Liberal Armed American

A liberal is a conservative who hasn’t been mugged yet‘.
Well, not quite.
As you’ll hear in the vid, Yamane didn’t get mugged, but was quick to understand the jeopardy he had placed himself in and decided to do something about it.

7 years (this week) and 700 posts ago, I started this blog. Initially, I wrote largely for myself. Somewhere along the way, people started reading what I had to say about guns and gun culture. More people than I could have imagined. This gives me confidence that I have something to say about the topic beyond the small group of scholars I am accustomed to talking to as a professor.

My confidence was tested in April when I had the opportunity give the lunchtime talk at the National Firearms Law Seminar in Indianapolis. More than anything I’ve written or said, “Gun Culture 2.0, or How a Liberal Professor Became an Armed American” offered a very personal perspective on how I got into guns and the study of gun culture. I also discussed some of the many lessons I have learned on my journey.

Two stunning revelations on Russia hoax investigation yesterday from DC super-lawyers Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova

Washington, D.C. super-lawyers Joe DiGenova and Victoria Toensing have consistently been ahead of the news on the course of the unfolding scandal of spying on the Trump campaign and administration.  Appearing last night on Lou Dobbs’s Fox Business Network show, the two law and marriage partners revealed that the DoJ inspector general has already concluded that the last three of four FISA warrants were illegally obtained.

Moreover, with the revelation from John Solomon that that “[n]ewly unearthed memos show a high-ranking government official who met with Steele in October 2016 determined some of the Donald Trump dirt that Steele was simultaneously digging up for the FBI and for Hillary Clinton‘s campaign was inaccurate, and likely leaked to the media,” Horowitz is re-opening the investigation into the legitimacy of the first of four FISA applications.

Yes, both POTUS & VPOTUS will pander to us gunnies.
But we find the President not as fine a friend as we might hope.
This ordering the redefining of what an automatic firearm conversion device is, by mere fiat of an agency,  is something that can and will comeback to bite us in the seat of the pants one day.
I understand the horror of the legislative alternative that was staring us in the face, and the odds that it had the votes to pass. But unless Trump’s judicial appointees come online for a stricter understanding of just what ‘shall not be infringed’ means in relation to current laws and regulations, we’re not going to like what we’re going to have to deal with.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) called on lawmakers and activists who argue that fossil fuels are “immoral” to “stop using them today.”

Man kills suspected robber during sale of PlayStation in north Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Houston police say a man who was trying to buy a PlayStation shot and killed a person he was meeting up with for the sale.

According to police, the buyer used an online selling app called “Let Go” to arrange the deal.

Police say a 46-year-old man was waiting in his car in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Greens Parkway around 10 p.m. Tuesday.

He told investigators that a man wearing a mask walked up and pointed a rifle at him, so he pulled out his own gun and started shooting because he thought he was going to get robbed.

The suspect was shot and killed.

The buyer was a licensed concealed carry holder. The district attorney will decide on potential charges.

“The left is so determined to try to paint America as a source of white supremacy when, in fact, there is virtually no institutional support for these handful of kooks (with crap-for-brains. ed.) that are insane. They are violating the very premises of Western Civilization.”
