BLM in this case doesn’t stand for the Bureau of Land Management. Here it stands for another idiot Proggy group, Black Lives Matter.

NRA’s Colion Noir Has One Heck of a Message for Black Lives Matter

Dana Loesch had liberals curling up in the fetal position when she urged her fellow conservatives to “fight this violence of lies [referring to media bias and the Left’s prime choice of protest] with the clenched fist of truth” in an ad for the NRA. *Gasp.*

Ironically, Loesch, who was condemning violence and hateful, divisive rhetoric, was accused of inciting violence and declaring civil war. [snip]

Of course, liberals only want protect the First Amendment rights of those who share their opinions and fight for their cause. Anyone who disagrees with them or says something they don’t like should automatically be silenced, hence why the video’s narrator goes on to “demand” the NRA “immediately” remove its (constitutionally protected) ads.

Thankfully, NRA TV’s Colion Noir wasn’t about to let BLM get away with peddling these absurd claims about the Second Amendments rights organization.

In an episode of “Commentators,” Noir first calls out BLM for losing sight of its original mission and turning into “a weaponized, race-baiting machine, pushing the extreme liberal-Democratic agenda, calling everything and anything that doesn’t fit their agenda white supremacy.” [snip]

People who don’t like guns, should remember that they are tools and serve those who use them properly.

Florida Woman Stops Alligator Attack Using a Small Beretta Pistol:

This is a story of self-control and marksmanship by a brave, cool-headed woman with a small pistol against a fierce predator. What’s the smallest caliber that you would trust to protect yourself?

Here’s her story in her own words: “While out walking along the edge of a pond just outside my house in The Villages with my soon to be ex-husband, discussing property settlement and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 12-ft. alligator which suddenly emerged from the murky water and began charging us with its large jaws wide open. She must have been protecting her nest because she was extremely aggressive.

If I had not had my little Beretta .25 caliber pistol with me, I would not be here today!” 

Daily Insanity

From the Loons on the Left, one should expect this form of mental deficiency and true to form, once more up pops the craziness over GUNS.

As with other wild arm waving and a collective attack of painful hair, there isn’t any basis in historical news events to substantiate their position. So much for rationality.

Mayhem, Murder and Madness

to Hit Kansas July 1st

If you believe the Left, Kansas is set to implode in a rage of violence and bloodshed starting July 1st when a provision put place by the legislature four years ago goes into effect.

According to Leftist fear mongers, this provision will squelch free speech on campuses everywhere. Students will be afraid to speak due to the threat of violence from fellow students. Teachers will fear giving someone a bad grade because of the sheer violence that will befall them. Professors will no longer find refuge in their offices and are being forced to change their office hours or become unavailable altogether – some have even sought refuge in other states. Others have decided to stop teaching and are seeking alternative pursuits like research. One or two have opted for retirement.

Dark days are ahead for Kansas.

What could bring on such fear?

In 2013, the Kansas legislature passed a law requiring that local municipalities and buildings owned by the state either have adequate security preventing the carrying of guns inside the property or require that citizens be allowed to carry concealed firearms on such properties. It’s a simple concept, either allow citizens to defend themselves, or provide adequate security. These properties were allowed an exemption from concealed carry for four years, giving them enough time to make plans for proper security measures to be installed. Yes, you read that right. They had four years.

Although there is no single place to go for definitive numbers, the grand total of those who have made public announcements about their leaving state universities because of the concealed carry law is around a half-dozen. An article from the Manhattan Mercury, where Kansas State University is located, listed three academic staff and one other employee. At Kansas University, Jacob Dornan made a big splash with his announcement in March. At Wichita State, Deborah Ballard-Reisch announced her resignation blaming concealed carry on campus. That’s a confirmed five out of around 5,800 academic staff in the six state universities – hardly a mass exodus, especially considering several were of retirement age anyway.

Concealed carry on college campuses is allowed in ten states, the longest standing being Utah where students have been allowed to carry since 2004. In thirteen years, there should be plenty of incidents where hostile students confronted others with guns, or situations where the presence of guns has squelched free speech. Or how (insert emotional argument here) has happened. One can search for hours to try and find such incidents and will find nothing of substance. No injuries, no blood in the streets, no students confronting teachers over a bad grade. Nothing. Interestingly enough, there were no mass shootings on campuses that allowed concealed carry either. Hmmmm.

Using the “logic” from the Left, it should be easy to find instances in Kansas where their claims have materialized. Since some municipalities chose not to participate in the exemption, many municipal buildings have allowed concealed carry holders inside state and county owned buildings for the past four years. In that time- frame, there should be plenty of instances where angry confrontational gun owners pointed their pistols at frantic clerks over a driver’s license issue or a property tax problem. Surely, one can find a multitude of instances where these hotheads took their guns out of holsters and threatened innocent government workers. Can you guess how many thousands of times this has happened? Hundreds? Scores? Dozens? A handful? Any? That’s right, zero is the number. At least this author couldn’t find one, if it did happen.

This is more proof that college doesn’t educate and enlighten, but merely indoctrinates. More mindless, moronic masses of Millennials on parade.

GUNS!

That word strikes fear and loathing into the hearts of the State Owned Media and the Ordained Left. The mere fact that they haven’t been able to eviscerate the Second Amendment sends them into paroxysms of rage. And now this is coming to the fore, making their horror even worse.

Don’t Tell The Anti-Gun Media, But Black Women Are Starting To Learn How To Use Guns

We all know that female participation in gun ownership and shooting sports is up. Female gun owners are also lining up for their carry permits as well. The gun industry knows that women are the next big thing for their business. It’s no longer an activity or a right exercised solely by white men, which if often an anti-gun talking point to denigrate the Bill of Rights. In fact, it’s made the gun control movement’s work in the stripping of our Second Amendment rights all the more difficult. They will put forth statistics about how a firearm in the home makes it less safe, but people don’t care. They want to be safe and more often than not—voters will side with the notion that a firearm increases one’s security. For starters, no one likes to be told how to live and how to manage their own safety priorities, let alone being lectured by anti-gun wingnuts from the liberal bastions of America about it. Well, The Guardian reported that black women are beginning to line up to learn how to use firearms for their own protection. What started as a group of ten women in Georgia has grown into a “movement.”

It was a modest setting for the launch of a movement: 10 African American women sat on folding metal chairs lining the edges of a small, gray-carpeted room on the second floor of the Bullseye Indoor Range and Gun Shop in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
They nervously giggled as Marchelle Tigner began her lesson. Seven of them had never held a gun before.

“This is a movement, and it starts now,” Tigner told her students. Heads nodded.

[…]

Tigner, who lives in Savannah, Georgia, sensed that there was pent-up demand when she launched Trigger Happy Firearm Instruction in November. She found the Bullseye firing range near Atlanta and offered the class through social media, hoping for 20 students. But the class sold out in two days, so she expanded it to 40. Another class scheduled for 4 March sold out to 40 students in 24 hours; a third class for 30 on 18 March sold out in 30 hours; and so did a fourth on 19 March. Tigner’s now got classes scheduled through the end of May, including several in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

She said she’s surprised at the response her classes have received. “The growth of these classes – I never expected it,” she said. “It shows me how unsafe these women feel in their communities.”

[…]

I can confirm that more African American women are learning to shoot,” said Kenn Blanchard, author of Black Man with a Gun, a gun ownership manual. “I’m getting emails from places like Pennsylvania, Arizona, saying: ‘Hey Kenn, these seven ladies were shooting – look at their scores.’ That’s never happened before,” said Blanchard, who’s based in Maryland.

[…]

Nicholas Johnson, law professor at Fordham University and author of Negroes and the Gun: The Black Tradition of Arms, pointed to a 2014 survey showing that 54% of black people felt that owning guns did “more to protect people than endanger personal safety”, nearly doubling the 29% who said the same two years earlier. “I would not be surprised if it is stronger now, with the idea that the political environment has tacitly approved violent behavior,” he said. [snip]

Frankly, racists or no racists, it doesn’t matter. If someone is threatening you and your family with violence, then by all means do what is necessary to protect yourself and your loved ones. While I doubt that Trump’s win has been the harbinger for these racist incidents (we’ve always had moronic racists among us), I’m glad to see that more women are lining up to get trained in firearm use.

Still, there are some black women who tend to view those packing heat as Uncle Toms. Take Antonia Okafor, a campus carry activist and Independent Journal Review contributor, who said that black women are the ones who give her the harshest criticism for her Second Amendment advocacy.

“People don’t know me, or how I came to my beliefs,” she said. “My experience comes more from being a woman and being empowered through my gun.” And for women facing a life-threatening situation by a male assailant, a firearm is the greatest equalizer.
