Actor Adam Baldwin retweeted this message from the Twitter machine of @GunSenseUSA (hijacking Moms Demand Action’s @gunsense) with the above picture, which uses the First Amendment to debunk many of the assumptions and rationalizations the disarmament folks try to make about the Second Amendment. Your Lockdown of the Day™ comes from . . .
Baltimore, and it’s just painful. KIPP charter schools were locked down for more than an hour and a half yesterday after a child saw a man with a photographer’s tripod and thought it was a gun. Yes, it’s stupid, but you need to read the full article to get the depth of it, not just about this incident, but about the whole panic-inducing response of lockdowns in general. “Some students and parents criticize school officials for overreacting,” but the article disdains those criticisms. “The lockdowns now practiced by most schools in the country help prepare students psychologically because students know they are doing what will make them feel safe during a tense situation.” They quote a mental health specialist who says that the perception of what could happen can cause anxiety, but it’s all OK, because “Most students will bounce back to normal in a few days or weeks…”
The Second Amendment Foundation has won a permanent injunction in a case it brought against the State of New Mexico’s “citizens only” provision in its laws concerning concealed carry. U.S. District Court Chief Judge M. Christina Armijo issued an order on April 1 that says the New Mexico statute “violates the Equal Protection Clause” of the Constitution’s Fourteenth Amendment. She found that the law unfairly discriminated against permanent legal resident aliens in disallowing them the right to concealed carry. The ruling does not affect the concealed carry law as a whole, but only severs the “citizenship provision” from the rest of the statute.
From The Tactical Wire – Overland Park, Kan. – Uncle Mike’s, a leading provider of hunting and shooting accessories for more than 60 years, has introduced a new versatile tactical shooting bag for long range enthusiasts. The Uncle Mike’s Long Range Tactical Bag is designed to not only safely transport rifles to the range, but also converts into a comfortable shooting mat. With an overall length of 50″, the Long Range Tactical Bag is capable of carrying almost any long gun equipped with a scope and bi-pod. The soft-sided Long Range Tactical Bag is built with durable 1000 Denier fabric for long-term reliability and protection. After safely transporting a rifle to the range or competition, the Long Range Tactical Bag can be quickly converted to a 78″ shooting mat.

I didn’t see this until today, but Iraqveteran8888 posted this video on April 1st. Taking off the old standby of cleaning your guns when your daughter’s boyfriend shows up at the house, here’s “Five Guns To Scare Your Daughter’s Boyfriend.” They call it their “April Fools” video, but you know the best jokes always have an element of truth to them.
I especially like the suppressor idea.
