Incendiary Video of the Day: ‘Is Tropical’ Music Video Edition

Kids these days. When I was their age, we wrote, produced and filmed a series of home made movies, too. Spy action flicks and evil possessed babies. We also walked fifteen miles to school. Up hill each way. And we liked it! This was way back in the pre-video tape (not to mention music video) days. We used Super-8 film and some decent editing. And our special effects consisted of a mouth full of ketchup and a cigarette tucked in a plastic gun barrel to simulate smoke.

Singing Barney Songs Risks Justifiable Homicide

[

Just jokin’ witch you. Although I do have a T-shirt that says “I survived my child’s Barney phase.” Anyway, this is the infamous video of a Mexican teacher calming her kindergarteners whilst drug thugs attempt to shoot each other outside the classroom. This she does by singing a version of If All the Raindrops, a song popularized by the purple dinosaur.

Lucky Gunner aimed to not disappoint when they promised the destruction of several vehicles via heavy artillery. While the aim of the re-enactment operators of the Sherman Tank could have been a little more spot on, they still got the job done; with a little help from some guys whistling Dixie. The end result: total annihilation of a Dodge Caravan, a Blue Bird School Bus and a by-standing sedan. As one RSO quipped to me following the destruction, “They had it coming” Guess he hates mini-vans too.

Paper Shocked, Shocked! to Find More Guns Mean Less Violent Crime

Willfully incredulous. Factually obtuse. Pathetically doofus-like. It seems there’s no end to the number of mainstream journalists who are (or, at least, profess to be) surprised by the correlation between…

Why We Need the Second Amendment: UK Edition

[

In a previous post, I linked Mexican gun control to the country’s descent into lawlessness. More than a few members of TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia considered my post both simplistic and misleading. Correlation does not equal causation. Gun control is merely one factor amongst many in Mexico’s misery. It is not the factor. I disagree. But I admit that my post failed to make that argument. In fact, it didn’t make any argument. It was the equivalent of that hamster-based car ad: you can deal with this, or you can deal with that. I need to explain how you get from this (the right to keep and bear arms) to that (the collapse of democracy and the loss of liberty). For that, let’s turn to another westernized country where I have more direct experience: the U.K . . .

In the great 1911 vs anything else debate, a critical fact is often lost: reliability isn’t that important. It is, but it isn’t. In other words, if you buy a good quality 1911 and treat it well, there’s no reason it shouldn’t go bang when required. If you’re a pistol owner who likes to treat ’em mean and doesn’t keep ’em clean—whilst shooting the living snot of your weapon—you’re better off buying a polymer pistol. And so the QOTD: how reliable does your gun have to be, given that you’re probably not taking it to Iraq or the Congo anytime in the near future? Is too much reliability not enough, or are you more “realistic”?

Gun Review: MilKor M32 MGL Shoulder-Fired Grenade Launcher

When you absolutely positively have to blow something up, accept no substitutes. Opt for a shoulder-fired grenade launcher. South Africa’s MilKor produces a fine example of the breed: the M32 semi-automatic…

In other videos on his channel, cokeman2423 begins his firearms-related stupidity with a simple instruction: DON’T DO THIS . . . FAGGOT. The unnecessary epithet indicates the level of intellect in play. cokeman2423’s being ironically PC. He clearly doesn’t care that his “work” encourages impressionable gun owners to replicate or one-up his “experiments.” Gun safety is everyone’s responsibility. If you’re going to show off, it should be done in a safe setting under controlled conditions. Not just for your sake, but for the sake of your viewers. In other words, gun safety is an idea. Anyone who does dangerous things with a gun in public is denigrating that idea and helping spread another one: the average person is too stupid to keep and bear arms. They aren’t, but cokeman2423 is. In that sense, his “humor” hurts us all.

Cell Phone Gun on the Chain Gang

Like everybody else, I receive a lot of chain emails. Some of these emails are a cheap and decidedly ineffective replacement for a missing sense of humor. Some are designed to elicit an emotional response from cute puppy “awws” to scantily-clad women “wows.” Occasionally I also receive emails designed to foster fear and paranoia, from secret conspiracies (exposed!) to lost freedoms (police state!). The latest fear-mongering electronic missive told of a cell phone that’s actually a 22- caliber weapon . . .
