Rule 5: Girl with Gun

Israeli Bullpup version of an AR-15 with a long clip. Black dress optional.

The Ruger LCPII

A small ACP 380 that “you can put this in a wallet holster, a pocket holster, an ankle holster, you can carry it inside your waistband, you can tuck it into an off-body holster inside your purse or backpack, and it’ll fit pretty much any space you can dedicate to it.”

Small caliber, yes, which needs accuracy, but easy to carry every day.

Arm yourself

After the El Paso and Dayton massacres, it’s time to arm yourself. And start carrying daily and practicing weekly. Or else practice hitting the floor and low-crawling under a table or other protection.

Gun control is the argument of the day. But it doesn’t work anywhere, not in Mexico, not in Chicago. It just makes the pols feel good. And it won’t work here, either, especially not any misguided notion of confiscations.

A couple of quickly dead mass shooters might do the trick.

Rule 5: Girls with guns

Snubnose still popular

“But, in this day of semi-automatic pistols, it is wise not to overlook the tried-and-true snubnose revolver. They’ve been around for a long time and that is simply due to the fact they meet the defensive needs of a lot of folks.”

Now, if they just can get the aim-interfering, double-action trigger fixed, please?

Same guns, different owners

“Given the same ubiquity of guns, wouldn’t the most productive question be what, if anything, has changed since the 1960s and ’70s? Of course it would. And a great deal has changed. America is much more ethnically diverse, much less religious. Boys have far fewer male role models in their lives. Fewer men marry, and normal boy behavior is largely held in contempt by their feminist teachers, principals and therapists. Do any or all of those factors matter more than the availability of guns?”

And although the Virginia Beach killer was a black man, most of the killers have been and continue to be white men. There’s a question right there.

Sound of gun saves lives

An interesting take on the Virginia Beach shooter’s choice of handgun, one with a noise suppressor (a silencer, in Hollyweird’s inaccurate parlance) that bodes evil if it becomes a trend. “What saves lives? The sound of gunfire.”
