Gun Grabbers: Mind the “Terror Gap.” Again. Still.

The gun control lobby hasn’t taken well to their recent defeat in the U.S. Senate. They’re bitching and moaning and polling and promising to revive their dead background check bill. The anti-gun grumbling is, in the main, mainstream media misegos. The public has moved on. Why wouldn’t they? Miniature Schnauzers have a longer attention span (and I mean that in the nicest possible way to both man and beast). To keep the anti-gunners’ juices flowing, the gun grabbers have changed the subject. Dancing in the blood of innocents, again, still, they’ve used the Boston Marathon bombing as an excuse to return to the subject of the “terror gap.” Folks, we shot this one down more than two years ago. To recap . . .

TTAG Supports Disarmament

If this video wasn’t from the New Orleans Police Department I’d swear it was a fake. ‘Cause, you know, the New Orleans Police Department is so trustworthy. Also, every Martial Arts-based “How to Defeat a Gun” video ever posted on YouTube has the pretend bad guy jamming the gun right up to the sensei. Which makes it a whole lot easier indeed to kick the BG’s butt and take away his or her weapon. As happened here. I guess truth is as strange as fiction. Oh, and this website formally endorses criminal disarmament during a violent attack. Or maybe even before. That is all.

With all the political talk recently, I thought it might be time to break up the monotony a little in the form of a video of someone shooting one of history’s masterpieces. I was at the ranch this past weekend letting my mother shoot the Taurus Millenium G2 I reviewed last week. She loved the gun, but then asked if she could, “shoot this Garand she’d been hearing so much about.” Here’s my mother shooting my Garand for the first time. And loving it. She scores bonus points for making fun of the way Nick laughs at the 0:18 mark.
