Coming Right Out And Telling Us What They Have Planned

Idiot mouthpiece John Kerry telling us the plan.

The ticking time bomb of Africa's population explosion coupled with the West encouraging overbreeding by Africans by providing them with food and medicine is going to lead to a real life The Camp Of The Saints soon down the road. Something similar will happen in Central America and both the U.S. and Europe will be swamped by a tidal wave of mouths we can't feed.

We have reached a "Bond villain explaining his entire evil plot before killing 007" levels of coming right out and saying it.

Life Is Too Short To Shoot Ugly Guns

Speaking of the NRA Annual Meeting, I was watching a video from Classic Firearms. They go every year and visit various booths so the reps can shill their new stuff. Classic Firearms has over one million subscribers on Youtube so they are a significant channel. 

Something jumped out at me. Most of the gun companies spent 3-5 minutes talking about their stuff. CZ spent almost 7 minutes with Classic and seemed to have some cool new stuff. Glock? They managed to talk to them for almost a whole minute and to say they were less than inspiring or engaged is an understatement. 

The last time the Classic people interviewed someone from Glock they didn't even get into their designated area, just talked outside of their booth and the guy only talked about Glock trivia. Nothing about their products. 

When we were at the Annual Meeting in Indy, the Glock area was huge and had a number of sales reps. All of them when we were there were clumped together talking amongst themselves instead of bothering to talk to potential customers. It was incredibly off-putting. I guess they figure that since most police departments buy Glocks and they are incredibly popular that they can just coast along, selling guns merely because of force of habit.

The whole Glock shtick irritates me. "Glock perfection", what a crock of shit. 

I don't know of many people who have their Glock with all of the OEM stuff and it is pretty common for people to replace basically everything from trigger to barrel to sights on their Glocks. At that point is it even really a Glock anymore? 

Don't get me wrong, Glock makes a perfectly serviceable firearm. They are reasonably reliable and accurate and of course have a zillion accessories because they are so ubiquitous. But this ain't the 1980s. My dad always would say "revolvers don't jam" as his rationale for why he didn't own semi-auto handguns and there was a time when semi-autos were more prone to jamming but today? A semi-auto from a reputable manufacturer that you take the most basic of care for just isn't going to jam. In other words, there are lots and lots of options when it comes to handguns that are functional, reliable and accurate. 

For me, Glock's are the Honda Civic of firearms. They might be functional and reliable but no one is excited about getting a Civic. 

For example, the Glock 19 is one of the, if not the, most popular handgun in America. It is relatively compact and has a 15 round standard magazine. The Gen 3 model looks like this....

It probably looks familiar because every single Glock looks basically like that. Some are bigger, some are smaller but they are all essentially the same thing. An ugly hunk of plastic with an ugly slide. It has all the charm and class of a cinder block. As I saw someone comment elsewhere on social media it is dependable and rarely fails but you can say the same thing about a steel bucket.

On the other hand, here is the CZ 75D PCR.

As I mentioned in a prior post, I own one and love it. The dimensions are similar.

The Glock 19 is 7.36" long, 1.26" wide and 5.04" high. It weighs 23.63 ounces empty.

The CZ 75D PCR is 7.24" long, 1.38" wide and 5.03" high. It weighs 27.05 ounces empty, due to the aluminum frame versus the Glock polymer frame.

So about the same size and slightly heavier (4 oz). 

For my money, the Glock is ugly and utilitarian. The CZ is aesthetically pleasing with style and class. Sure some people don't like hammer guns but I do and even if you don't like the CZ's style there are a ton of other striker fire polymer handguns out there that are just as functional and reliable as the Glock 19 without being so damn ugly. The Sig P320 Nitron Compact or the new Springfield Hellcat Pro or....well just know that there are lots of guns that do the same thing as the Glock 19.

This is just a personal rant, get whatever you like and learn to shoot it well. Imma just saying that life is too short to shoot ugly guns.

Honest Question (Not Really)

The NRA Annual meeting is this weekend in Texas and while I have little use for the NRA, I did enjoy going to the annual meeting when it was in Indianapolis pre-pandemic. Acres upon acres of guns. Of course The Big Story out of Houston is that the NRA convention is going on right after the completely coincidental mass shooting in Texas occurred this week. A number of entertainers dropped out of scheduled events, including Larry Gatlin and Mr. Monetizing Patriotism Lee Greenwood.

According to Lee Greenwood, a man who has cashed in on White American nostalgia with his one sappy song to the tune of millions of dollars, an AR-15 just randomly killed a bunch of kids.

"The unfortunate shooting in Texas took place at a very bad time. And for me to go and play at the NRA just days after the shooting would be an endorsement. And people would then deem that as, I like this weapon. And obviously, that weapon killed kids. And I just couldn't go," he told hosts Brian Kilmeade, Pete Hegseth and Ainsley Earhardt. 

That weapon killed kids. Not the tranny fruitcake who actually pulled the trigger. What a fucking dolt.

Anyway, the convention has attracted a whole gaggle of freaks and weirdos to protest against the NRA being in Houston, having their convention this week (scheduled years in advance) and for the NRA's tepid support of the Second Amendment. The photos are what you would expect....

The homely chick holding up the "Pro-life?" sign apparently thinks that men need to fill out a 4473 and submit to a background check before depositing a load in her uterus. I would actually support such a regulation, we already have more than enough ugly and stupid people in America. 

This story from Breitbart about the protests is vintage Breitbart Normiecon....

Oh no, a White person said something mean to a black person! That makes it doubly horrible and worthy of a dedicated story. If you read Breitbart for any reason other than the luls, you are wrong and should feel bad.

That brings me to my question:

Where are these protesters the rest of the year? Why do they only show up in a safe location to scream at normal people who happen to support the NRA?

According to the Gun Violence Archive, over 140 children ages 0-11 have been killed by gunfire in America so far this year plus an additional 516 "youths" ages 12-17. 

Just in Chicago alone this year 18 minors have been murdered and another 68 wounded.

Where are the protesters standing around on the sidewalks in Chicago holding signs decrying the violence in America's poster child city for gun violence? Why are these crowds of White liberals not demanding that gangsters in Chicago and Baltimore and Philadelphia stop shooting each other and kids who happen to be standing nearby?

The answer is obvious and self-evident. You can hold signs outside of an NRA event and screech obscenities at the attendees and nothing will happen to you. If you go in the places where the vast majority of gun violence occurs? You might become a statistic yourself. Check this out from Chicago:

Asian reporter Tricia Takanawa just doing her job filming a live report about gun violence in Chicago when one of the usual suspects in gun violence walks behind her and points a gun at the cameraman. At 7 o'clock in the damn morning, homie is out getting him some coffee and waving his gat around at Asians. The first thing I thought of when I read the story was this....

That is why homely White women hold up signs outside of the NRA annual meeting instead of in places where gun violence actually occurs. When I was at the annual meeting in Indy there were thousands of people packed into the convention center, probably 80-90% of them concealed carrying and there were no reports of gun fights breaking out. Why? Because NRA members are not the people who commit crimes in America.

The statistics are probably not really available but it is a safe bet that the total number of murders committed by members of the NRA in any given year is in the single digits and quite often zero. When you look at the people attending the annual meeting, I would bet almost 100% have never been convicted of a crime in their life.

NRA members are by and large middle class, middle age or older, Normiecon White people who carry their smart phones in leather belt holders and wear New Balance tennis shoes (I also wear NB because I have exceptionally wide feet). You would be hard pressed to find a subgroup of American more law abiding than that population. Many of my friends and family growing up were/are NRA members and they were and are decent people with families, jobs and a life. People who stand around protesting an annual meeting? Likely none of the above.

The answer to the question I posed is simple: the people protesting the NRA annual meeting either don't really care about gun violence or know so little about the issue that they think that the NRA is the problem in America when it comes to gun violence. Probably more of the latter than the former because as mentioned America is full of stupid people. My assumption is that most people who are anti-gun activists have given almost no thought to the issues and simply are parroting back what they are told by people who know damn well that "universal background checks" or "high capacity magazine" bans or "red flag laws" will do nothing to stem the tide of gun violence and they simply don't care. 

The whole thing is silly enough to make me almost want to renew my NRA membership. Almost. Maybe if they get rid of Wayne LaPierre and the rest of the senior staff.....

That Sound You Hear?

Is the last bit of plausibility in the argument for only allowing the police to have guns.

The school shooting in Uvalde is quickly shifting from being about the shooter and more about the response from local cops, or more specifically the utter lack of a response. Various reports indicate that nearly an hour lapsed between the time cops were dispatched and the shooter was neutralized, and not even by the local PD but by a random Border Patrol agent who used a borrowed shotgun from the barber who was cutting his hair when he heard about the shooter.

While I am not sure what all transpired, it does seem like the cops are acting a bit guilty and defensive. When kids act that way, it is a sure sign they did something wrong. I assume the same is true here. What is worse are the pictures and accounts of parents being forcibly restrained from going in to try to stop the shooter.

It is unimaginable that while children are being murdered, adults would stay outside and especially cops. I have zero real training, shooting for fun and practice not counting as real training, but even if my own kids weren't in that building I would hope I would try to do something. 

It makes one wonder why we spend all of this money on police, giving them military equipment and delegating the authority to use lethal force when they stand around outside because they are apparently afraid to go in. Thanks to BCE for the link:

According to Texas Department of Safety Lt. Chris Olivarez....

Police initially said that the gunman barricaded himself inside the classroom and that they had trouble gaining access to the room, and one unnamed law official anonymously spoke out to say SWAT teams had to wait for a different school staff member to bring them a key to the class. 

'At that point, if they proceeded any further not knowing where the suspect was at, they could’ve been shot, they could've been killed, and at that point that gunman would have had an opportunity to kill other people inside that school.

'So they were able to contain that gunman inside that classroom so that he was not able to go to any other portions of the school to commit any other killings,' Lt. Olivarez said. 

Again I understand being scared but that is your fucking job. I thought it was understood that you are given these guns and that training with the expectation of putting yourself in harms way for the sake of others. There is a reason that we (used to) honor cops, soldiers and firefighters. They put their lives in jeopardy on our behalf. 

If nothing else, this should end the line of argument about civilians not needing guns because the cops are armed. More and more cops are not doing much with their guns and training. Some of it is understandable, who wants to intervene when blacks are rampaging and you could be the next Derek Chauvin for just doing your job. But in cases like this and Parkland, it seems that more cops are just running out the clock to get to their pension and have little interest in the sort of self-sacrifice we expect and assume from them.

What many of us have always known is that cops are not "first responders" in many cases. We are. If someone breaks into my home, sure we can call 911 but in the time that it takes for the sheriff to show up a lot of bad shit can happen and I for one am not interested in seeing how bad it gets before the cops show up. I am my own first responder. If my house is on fire, I will call 911 but make sure to do everything I can to get my wife and kids out even if it means losing my own life. I am not waiting for the fireman to show up to tell me what to do.

Something else to consider. Most normiecons are slavishly devoted to "Muh thin blue line" and backing up the cops no matter what. I think this might really damage that, along with crap like Waco, Ruby Ridge, the unlawful incarceration of the January 6th protesters, etc. Cops today, at least a growing percentage of them, are not the same sort of cops we think of from our youth. There are still good cops but the ratio seems to be shifting away from good cops and in favor of bad or at least mediocre cops.

Faith in law enforcement is one of the last hold-outs of institutional trust and it is high time it is abandoned. Everyone needs to understand that there are no institutions left that are not opposed to heritage Americans. NONE. The sooner people figure that out, the better. It just sucks that it took 19 little kids getting killed by a tranny for people to start to figure it out.

Speaking Of Bootlickers

Here it comes. Much of the GOP political class has quietly been waiting for a tragedy to give them cover to do what they wanted in the first place, disarming the American people. Apparently Cocaine Mitch is sending John Cornyn to be his representative in signing away our rights.

Eugene Stoner: Uber-Nazi!

Check out this gem from Twitter....

Who is this dipshit?

Just in case you forgot how stupid "journalists" are.

The ratio is something to behold and it is just climbing.

That is close to a 97% reply to like ratio. Wow. 

Anyway, I have read some stupid fucking shit online today but that one wins.

Bootlickers Of America Unite!

Whenever there is a high profile mass shooting that at least partially fits the proper profile (racially motivated, involved an "assault rifle", shooter was White or can be lightened to look White in pics, etc), the usual suspects come out of the woodwork demanding more gun control. You can assume that they have a whole file of talking points ready to send out in fundraising emails as soon as news of a new shooting breaks (unless the shooting is just black people shooting other blacks)

Liberals waiting for a juicy mass shooting

It is simple politics. The dirty secret of lobbying groups is that many of them don't want their particular issue to get better or be resolved. They depend on scaring the people on their fundraising database into continually sending more money. If the threat of gun control suddenly disappeared, the NRA would lose a ton of revenue and then how would they pay for Wayne LaPierre's suits? I assume most people working for the NRA really care about gun rights but I bet a lot don't care beyond keeping the donations flowing. The same is true for Everytown and the Brady Center or whatever they are calling themselves these days. The goal is to keep the cash flowing. This is true for most organizations from non-profits to churches. 

Someone else usually shows up when something like Buffalo and Uvalde happen: the bootlickers who claim to be /ourguys/ but then demand that we allow ourselves to be disarmed. They tend to be on social media in various gun groups and I have seen a ton of them this week. Their posts are always the same.

One, the appeal to authority and common ground:

"As a veteran..."

"As someone who owns an AR-15..."

"As someone who concealed carries...." 

And of course...

"As someone who supports the 2nd Amendment...."

This is followed by the inevitable "but" and then what they claim is common sense and reasonable.....

"Maybe 18 year olds shouldn't be able to buy AR-15s...."

"Maybe AR-15s should be regulated as NFA items...."

"Maybe waiting periods would be a small price to pay to save one child...."

These bootlickers are far more dangerous than Diane Feinstein types who openly talk about confiscation because they pretend to be just like us. I assume many of them are sock puppet accounts who pretend to be gun guys but are run by anti-2A leftists. On the other hand, many really are gun owners who are just fucking stupid. They are basically women with beard and NRA hats, driven by their emotions. 

The rest of us know how this would go. 

Step one, we go along with something like raising the age to purchase a rifle to 21 because of the children.

Step two, the new law does nothing to stem the flow of shootings, since most happen in urban areas, are committed by black men with handguns who are usually already prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Step three, a new tragedy unfolds and we get the same demands for "something" to be done. 

Step four, even stricter rules are imposed on us even though no one thinks it will actually help.

Rinse, repeat until we get to a total ban on civilian ownership of firearms.

A head-on attack is easy to see coming and rally the troops in response but the subtle undermining of our united front by a fifth column? That is really dangerous and if you are on social media and in gun groups, you need to jump on these people with both feet. 

When we lose our 2A rights, and believe me we will, it will be a combination of demographic displacement and bootlickers in our own ranks that will doom us.
