Knowing when not to shoot

Here’s a good idea from Defender88 at the NRA’s Shooting Illustrated:

“Buy a stack of man size silhouette targets.
Take 1 and make a large x across it.
Indicating this is a Non-Threat target.

“Staple the non-threat across the front of a standard threat target. Cover 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 of the threat target. Practice moving and shooting and hitting the threat (say head shot) without hitting the non-threat. At different distances.
Find out what your real capabilities are, under ideal conditions. Considering how you would feel in hitting a non-threat : Wife, kid, by-stander.
Try making a head shot, while moving, with one hand, etc.
Then consider it will be 10x harder in a real fight.
One thing more important than knowing ‘when’ to shoot is knowing when ‘not’ to shoot.”

And, having practiced, being ready to employ your knowing.

The Hildabeast wants your guns

It’s one thing to support gun control.  It’s another to make it the centerpiece of a floundering presidential primary campaign.  But Hillary Clinton wasn’t finished when she latched onto the idea of opposing the NRA as a means of diverting the nation from the humiliating scandals and poll results plaguing her own bid to succeed Barack Obama. First, she announced to her wealthy supporters that ‘the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment,’ which demonstrates her opposition to the individual right to keep and bear firearms, including handguns, for self-defense. Now, however, she’s gone even further and echoed President Obama’s references to Australian and British style gun control.

It’s highly unlikely the Democrats’ soon-to-be presidential nominee would have the guts to try and confiscate the guns of millions of law-abiding Americans. Even if it were possible, which she would soon find out that it isn’t.

She’s probably just lying, something she and her consort Slick Willie are noted for. But you never know. She’s also bat-shit crazy in a party of bat-shit crazies.

Why I joined the NRA, a continuing series

I like their scorched-earth defense of the Second Amendment, which an otherwise good book I’m reading (Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun) contends is counterproductive. The author claims the NRA tries to keep gun owners fearful of losing their right to “keep and bear” a gun, which brings in new members and subscription payments to keep the NRA in business.

I think the NRA is right on target, especially when Leftist Democrats are in power, as they are now, since they like nothing better than to ban things they disagree with and to invent new regulations for Americans to obey. And Barry clearly fits the mold of a gun-grabbing bigot.

The more that guys like King Scold use tragedies like Newtown to blame the gun instead of the shooter, the more support the antigunners get. Recent polls suggest it’s only a matter of time until gun-rights pols will be looking over their shoulders to see antigunner opponents gaining on them.

So the more the NRA attacks such methods, the better the chance of avoiding new gun restrictions. I loved their recent ad underscoring the hypocrisy of the 1 percent, such as MSNBC’s David Gregory, who send their children to private schools with armed security while they refuse to support it for the children of the 99 percent.

NRA: Barry an “elitest hypocrite”

Hey, no kidding. This is a good video the NRA (of which I am a member) has produced on armed security in all schools versus only those for Obozo and the rest of the 1 percent.

But don’t be misled by the WaPo’s remarks at the link  (and probably the rest of the Democrat-controlled news media) which only confirms that Barry’s kids are protected by Secret Service (when they’re not out whoring). Their private Sidwell Friends school has armed guards for all its students.

School security, a trend still waiting to happen

On this supposedly peaceful Christmas day, which it usually is here at the rancho, the Nightmare before Christmas lingers. As well it should.

Mr. Boy told us that, in the days following the Newtown massacre, there were three armed security men patrolling the grounds of his middle school up the street. Mrs. Charm figures they needed three because the school has portable classroom buildings outside the main building.

I doubt very much the three armed men will be there when school resumes after Christmas break, however. The school district, top-heavy with administrators like so many educational institutions these days, couldn’t afford such extra spending for long.

Meanwhile, the “come-and-get-em” signs, otherwise known as “gun-free zone” announcements, still decorate the entrances which are said to be locked now but, again, for how long? Have noticed word that Utah has school teachers who carry concealed weapons, at least one Texas public school district does and a New Jersey school district is talking about it. UPDATE: So is state government in Arizona.

No clamor for change here yet that I’ve noticed and I don’t really expect any in liberal Austin where antigunner Democrats rule the roost, though the city pols officially are called non-partisan. Sure. Ours was the only city in Republican Texas to vote for Barry.

Despite the NRA’s good advice on the subject, at least one Texas Dem “leader” has suggested that NRA members who don’t support gun control should be slain. Uh, that would be me, but I’m not worried. The man’s mouth is bigger than his brain. Only fools and cowards make public threats.

Pundit Charles Krauthammer calls out popular video games in which players shoot people over and over again. He’s referring to the Call of Duty war games, which Mrs. C. and I have forbidden Mr. B. until he’s sixteen. We do allow him the Halo shooter game because its targets are monsters. Not a small difference to my mind, even if they are cartoons. None of us attends the Hollywood bloodbaths that pass for movies these days. I’d certainly support banning them, but their makers are Democrat donors, so we can forget that.

Home schooling may proliferate now, pundit Peggy Noonan thinks (behind the WSJ’s fire pay wall), when parents realize that the likes of the Texas Dem “leader” will block any attempt at more school security. While the elite’s own children are protected.

Not that Dems have much influence elsewhere in Texas, but our concern is here, where they do. But home schooling is out. Even if I was qualified, which I’m not. So we’ll wait and see. I’d be happy if they’d take down the damn “hunting preserve for children” signs. It would be a start.

Gun Ban Barry

Barry’s campaign lawyers are trying to ban these National Rifle Association ads. You might want to check them out, just in case they succeed. ABC’s Jake Tapper certifies the truth of this one.
