SAF Taking MAIG to the Woodshed

Second Amendment Foundation press release:

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today has filed a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request with the City of New York for all records relating to Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, after newspaper allegations that city resources have been used for MAIG’s gun control efforts. SAF is being joined in the request by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and Tom Gresham, host of the nationally-syndicated “Gun Talk.” “It was bad enough to learn via CBS News that the MAIG website was being hosted on a city-owned server, and administered by city employees,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, “but it also appears that a special counselor in the mayor’s office was sent to lobby in Nevada on behalf of MAIG’s gun control agenda.” . . .

Nice group. Only the camera was focused on the target, not the shooter. If you’re in a [modern] isosceles stance using a proper grip and practicing rigorous trigger technique you should get a tight group with your eyes closed. Literally. Provided no one’s shooting at you. In an actual gunfight you should be moving and then shooting. Or shooting then moving. Or moving and shooting. This during The Mother of All Adrenalin Dumps. All of which decreases the likelihood that a defensive shooter will adopt a “proper” stance or grip or slowly squeeze the trigger. In fact, judging from YouTube DGUs, most people in a defensive gun use point shoot (i.e. aim without sights). Which could very well make XS Big Dot sights a better bet for most people; they help point shooters point in the right direction. Right or wrong?

This Sunday, Snoop Lion a.k.a., Snoop Dogg, a.k.a., Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. will perform at the Black Entertainment Television Awards (having been rejected from the White Entertainment Awards’ affirmative action program). No coincidence, then, that this interview promoting Snoopy’s No More Guns single just dropped. It’s the perfect BET PC pick. At :56 into this installment of Gangsta Rap Confidential, the Top Dogg attempts to charm The People of the Gun. Are you against guns? “No definitely I’m not against guns,” the Doggstar assures. “People who know how to use them and professionally understand the dynamics of guns and why you use them and to protect themselves and to protect others should always have that privilege.” Right. “But what I am against is violence with guns.” ‘Cause people who protect themselves with guns shoot love. Anyway, can’t wait to see the props . . .

Kel-Tec PF-9. I’m more interested in his holster set-up. How did George Zimmerman manage to extract the gun while on his back? How visible would it have been for Trayvon Martin if Zimmerman was on his back, given that the defense counsel mentioned the possibility of a gun grab by the teen. How easy would it have been to remove the gun at that angle?

Well of course Red Jacket Firearms is messing around with an anti-aircraft gun. You do know that RJF was deeply involved in Project Babylon (building Saddam Hussein’s super guns) and that they’re shooting the next season in Syria, right? I don’t think I’m supposed to talk about the railgun in the RJF In Space original movie quite yet, but, uh, oops.

It’s time for ostensibly republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to piss or get off the pot (as the Brits are wont to say) re: the raft of post-Newtown civilian disarmament bills sitting on his desk awaiting his signature. Or veto. Here’s the updated list of gun ban bills passed by both the houses of the New Jersey legislature, incorporating the three passed yesterday. Note: nj.com provides the description of the bills (e.g., the .50-caliber rifles is the most powerful weapon ever created by hand of man), not me. Oh and there are 12 more headed down the proverbial pike.
