Top Ten Gun Control Zealots Of 2014

As we look back on the year that was, 2nd Amendment supporters can see some good, some bad and some ugly.  The good being the movements expanding carry laws, the pick up of constitutional carry states, the defeat of Federal legislation to limit our rights. Then we have the bad.  The passage of Washington State’s I-594, the continued existence of NY’s Safe Act, the failure to remove Hickenlooper from the Governorship of Colorado. Of course we have the ugly.  Ghouls like Michael Bloomberg, Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety; with their hate speech, calls for violence against gun owners and over the top vitriol these individuals are truly ugly on the inside. With the year in review, who were the worst of the worst villains who sought to deny the rights of free people and were willing to shred the Bill of Rights in order to trample...

Stop Donating To The Wounded Warrior Project – They’re A Fraud

Update at the bottom During this Christmas and New Year’s season the gift of charity swells in the hearts of many.  And who better to benefit from that charity than those who have literally given life and limb for the freedom and liberty we possess today than the veterans who stood tall when their nation called on them? When people donate money they expect that the majority of it will go to the actual cause and not line the pockets of some corporate hack or grease the wheels to enable extravagant parties.  Unforunately, when it comes to the Wounded Warrior Project, the people who have been so generous with their donations have been bamboozled and the veterans in need have been placed, as one veteran put it, into a “dog and pony show.” For full disclosure, I have been against the Wounded Warrior Project ever since they came out...

Harrisburg Adamant About Keeping Illegal Ordinances On The Books

In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, a new state law going into effect on Jan. 5th, Act 192, dictates that any local municipality that has illegal firearm ordinances on the books will be financially responsible to those citizens who have their civil rights violated because of them. While a number of cities and towns are repealing their illegal gun ordinances so as to avoid both the persecution of the innocent and now the financial fallout of said persecution (the latter seemingly being the driving factor behind the recent compliance), Pennsylvania’s capitol of Harrisburg remains obstinate. Just to be clear, the illegal ordinances on the books of many municipalities are all ready legally unenforceable.  The new law though, gives the pre-emption in Pennsylvania teeth, allowing successful plaintiffs to force municipalities to pay their legal fees, expert witness fees, all court costs and any compensation for lost income when they are victims of...

Five Moments of Liberals Mocking Gun Owners via Foot in Mouth Idiocy

So as we near the end of the year it is no surprise that liberal gun grabbing zealots have said and done a lot of idiotic things to try and defend their losing arguments against the 2nd Amendment and those who believe in the right to keep and bear arms. But when it comes down to it, what the liberal gun control crowd really does with their hyperbolic blathering is reveal just how ignorant, intolerant and hateful they are. Our Friends at libertyunyielding.com has come up with a list of some of the most outrageous things muttered by rabid, mouth breathing gun controllers this year. In short order: Washington DC Police Employee Claims Second Amendment Was only for ‘When the British Were Coming’ Hillary Clinton Says Gun Owners ‘Terrorize the Majority of People’ New York Daily News Calls Second Amendment Supporter a Gun Nut, Gun Worshiper, and Zealot for winning...

Christmas Break For Bullets First

Hey faithful readers.  Just wanted to take a moment to assure you that Bullets First hasn’t gone anywhere. Just with the Christmas season in full swing and some inclement weather making my internet connection spotty I have been unable to write any new articles. As such, until the 26th of December I will be on holiday. Before I go, allow me to wish you the very Merriest of Christmas’s and let us remember that the season is more than just gift giving and commercialization. And after the family festivities draw to a close, when you go out with friends be it on Christmas or New Year’s…be...

Zero Tolerance Run Amok: Piece of Brass Gets Child 6 Month Suspension

In yet another example of hysterical political correctness knee jerk reactions, a student at a Kansas elementary school was suspended for six months because he happened to pick up a piece of spent brass that his mom had expended the day before. From Liberty Unyielding: The student, Camron Carlson, picked the casing up off the ground and placed it in his pocket when he accompanied his mother who was sighting in a rifle the day before, according to The Chanute Tribune. “Our family does a lot of deer hunting,” Camron’s grandmother, Mary Sue Carlson, told the Tribune. “This is hunting country.” Camron said that the following day it fell out of his pocket as he was leaving the restroom at school. Another student took notice and reported the incident to a teacher. Camron was eventually called into the principal’s office, which in turn called the boy’s mother, Deana Carlson....

The Argument For Being Able To Legally Shoot Crooked Cops

The 2nd Amendment was highlighted in the Bill of Rights to ensure that citizens have the right to defend themselves.  For some reason over the years that has gotten watered down to defending themselves against petty criminals but it extends passed that to be first and foremost a defense against a tyrannical government and those who would exploit their position at the cost of a innocent persons liberty. A case in point is a situation that occurred back on Sept. 30, 2011 in Missouri.   Jason and Laura Hagan, who home school their three children, were the subject of an investigation by Child Protective Services alleging that their home was messy.  Take a second to let that soak in.  They were under investigation for having a “messy” home.  If that were actually true, how many of us would be under investigation?  No.  From the looks of it it would seem...

This is What New York Crazy Bleeding Over Into Pennsylvania Looks Like: Raising Kane

When voters are suckered into voting for a candidate backed by billionaire gun hater Michael Bloomberg, they really shouldn’t be surprised when she makes it her priority to undermine the 2nd Amendment and follows lockstep with marching orders coming from the Bloomberg command center. Bloomberg backed crony, Kathleen Kane, is the Attorney General of Pennsylvania.  Kane, as you might have recalled in earlier articles here, received a PERFECT score from CeasefirePA, the local radical gun control group in the commonwealth.  In order to receive a perfect score, Kane would have had to answer that she is a little tougher than the Gestapo in her desire to stamp out the 2nd Amendment. Over the past 2 years she has went on a jihad against reciprocity agreements with other states, including Florida and Utah. But the greatest umbrage is that now she out right REFUSES to do her job. Allow me to explain....

It’s not paranoia when people ACTUALLY break into your house – Castle Doctrine

I’m a little surprised to discover this story comes from Montana but apparently gun control radicalism can sprout from any soil. In his home Markus Kaarma, 30 year old father of one, heard sounds of someone burglarizing his residence.   With his baby to protect Kaarma took out his shotgun and went to investigate.  There he found 17 year old German exchange student Diren Dede going through his garage.  Fearing for his life and that of his infant child from an unknown intruder in the night who may have been armed Kaarma shot and killed Dede. Sounds pretty cut and dry to me.  I mean, perhaps Dede forgot that he wasn’t in Germany and that Americans are armed and tend to take a less than hospitable view to burglars in the night. And that’s what Dede was.  He was a criminal, who broke into a man’s house at night in...

Trying to get a gun controller to follow logic is like…

Logic, what should be a salve for gun controllers terrified irrationality is one of the hardest things to get to sink into their radically un-American heads. They cling to any false statistic or fairy tail gun free zone bubble that they can in order to basically stick there fingers in their ears and say: “Nyah nyah nyah, I can’t hear you, nyah nyah nyah, guns are bad.” Basically, the same mindset a toddler has when you try to tell them why the need a good nights sleep. And just like a spastic toddler who will throw a tantrum and rage against trying to tell them something truthful and logical, so do the gun hating zealots throw fits. As William Buckley once so correctly pointed out Trying to get a gun controller to follow logic is like trying to teach an owl how to swim… Wait…WHAT?!?!?! This just in: Huh.  So...

Washington State, Enforce New Gun Law Fully and Mercilessly…No Really

My regular readers my see the title to this article and think I’ve lost it.  Let me assure you it isn’t so.  And if you are a gun control zealot thinking I am going support your ideology…well…have fun with that. Washington State recently, through a ballot initiative bankrolled by Billionaire freedom hater Michael Bloomberg, bamboozled the voters who were ignorant about what they were voting on and making them believe that ballot initiative I-594 would do anything to stop crime.  It won’t. What it will do is drive up costs, hassle gun owners and businesses and be an all around pain in the ass. That is why it must be enforced to the FULL extent of its power.  I want this law to be hammered home as it is written. Ah yes…as it is written.  You see, there’s the rub. When gun controllers get together in their confabs to...

Tactical Christmas Stocking For The Gun Lover In Your Family

I like to wait until my Thanksgiving dinner is fully digested before I start thinking about Christmas shopping.  So no, you will not see me fight tooth and claw with a herd of wild animals on Black Friday, and ESPECIALLY not on Thursday night.  In fact I put the notion out of my mind completely until now or else I would have written about this item sooner. The NRA has up armored the traditional Christmas stocking and is selling it online for $25. I have to admit, while my naysayers may think I live in a bunker with camoflauge netting and sleep upon a pile of sandbags, the reality is that I don’t go for the “tactical everything in my life look.”  Because of that, I can see something like this and appreciate it’s kitschy coolness. I mean, who WOULDN’T want a desert tan, tactical black or olive drab...

Girls Just Wanna Have Guns – A Documentary By Regis Giles

I first met Regis Giles while I was working as the Director of Media Relations with Gun Owners of America back in 2012.  To say that I have followed her career and rise as a leader in the 2nd Amendment movement and a strong female voice for the right to defend oneself against rapists and all forms of tyranny would be an understatement.  Regis, in fact, is the reason I joined up with the Liberty Alliance because a group that would count her in their number is a group that I want to be a part of. Regis takes the “Bullets First” mindset and runs with it full bore.  War on women?  To that Regis states that if you want to empower a woman, give her a gun.  I’ve no doubt a would be rapist looking down at the barrel of a .45 is more likely to soil themselves...

Defenders of Ferguson Threatened By Feds At Gunpoint

Ronald Reagan famously once said: “Government is not the solution to our problem…government is the problem.” I am therefore not surprised that white Oath Keepers were trying to keep the city of Ferguson from burning to the ground by protecting stores and property from being torched by out of town agitators and race baitors, the Obama administration mobilized the feds to shut it down.  I guess having armed citizens doing the job of keeping people safe was making the government look bad. From Liberty Unyielding: After a horrific night of arson, vandalism, and looting in Ferguson, Mo. last week following a grand jury decision, members of a militia calling itself the Oath Keepers have been arriving to guard over the persons and property the local police are unable to protect. The city initially welcomed the group’s assistance, but as word of their presence spread, state and federal politicians allegedly...

Armed Black Men Gather In Ferguson…To PROTECT White Business Owner

A group of black men, armed with so called “assault rifles” came together to protect a white owned business. Somewhere a liberal race baiting gun hater just read that and their head exploded. This is a story that you won’t hear trumpeted by the left wing media because it goes against their narrative and everything that they have spewed out recently. First and foremost, despite all the race baiting done by the Obama administration, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and others the people of Ferguson were not some nameless mob of angry black people looking for “justice.”  There were a great many who armed up in order to defend themselves and their property from out of town agitators who were looking for mayhem regardless of who would suffer. Queue to a gas station/convenient store owned by Doug Merello.  Merello happens to be white and since that has made you a...

Gun Sales ROAR as Black Friday Whimpers

After the initial reports, it seems that Black Friday sales fell below the level they were last year.  That is true for pretty much everything across the board.  Everything EXCEPT firearms. The irony is pretty amusing if you think about it.  You see, when an economy is sluggish, people have lost faith in the government, and hope for the future is bleak, people do not go out and melt their credit cards on Black Friday.  This is an indictment against the peoples faith in President Obama. How amusing it is then that the ONE sector that saw an overwhelming increase in growth was the one thing that Obama has hated and sought to undermine since the day he took office; GUNS. From Liberty Unyielding: The staggering number of checks — an average of almost three per second, nearly three times the daily average — falls on the shoulders of...

Afghan Woman’s Son Killed In Taliban Attack, Kills 25 Militants To Avenge Him

Hell hath no fury like a mother avenging her son. Reza Gul’s son Malalay was a police officer in the western Farah province. Bordering Iran it is not the safest place in the world.  While manning a checkpoint, Reza Gul’s son, along with his fellow officers were ambushed by Taliban militants. After hearing the battle and finding her son dead, Reza Gul, along with her daughter and daughter in-law took over the outpost and engaged in a seven hour long gun battle with the men who had killed her son. Of the incident she said this: “It was around 5 a.m. when my son’s check post came under the attack of Taliban.  When the fighting intensified, I couldn’t stop myself and picked up a weapon, went to the check post and began shooting back.” Note that she didn’t say she picked up the weapons at the outpost…she armed herself...

FSU Gun Free Zone Disarmed CCW Holder and Combat Army Veteran

Once again we see that Gun Free Zones do nothing to actually stop criminals with ill intent from shooting up a place.  The preponderance of examples of its utter failure has finally begun to sink in to the American consciousness and slowly but surely we are seeing places pull down those asinine signs.  One place that has been slow to adopt this sensible and logical approach is, ironically, schools of higher education. Oft times bastion of liberal academics who would place their own ideology over the safety of their students, they still erroneously cling to the idea that a 8×12 inch sign is going to stop a bad guy in his/her tracks. I thought these people were supposed to be educated. At Florida State University, a sign like that didn’t stop would be mass murderer from shooting up a library. Who it did stop was a couple of law...
