Sony Pictures Caves to North Koreans as Cinemas Remain Gun-Free Zones


As you no doubt know, Sony Pictures Entertainment pulled the release of The Interview after North Korean hackers threatened to murder movie-goers. “The world will be full of fear [if you release the picture]. Remember the 11th of September 2001. We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time. (If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.) Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.” I’ve got one word for the Sony execs . . .

36 Heckler & Koch G36’s Seized In Iguala, Mexico

Heckler & Koch G36 wgere it shouldn't have been (courtesy forum.nationstates.net)

Back in January 2011, TTAG reported that box-fresh H&K G36’s had found their way into prohibited areas of Mexico. We wondered if when the guns would “seep” to the cartels. borderlandbeat.com reports that we’re not the only ones making that connection, now, in light of the 43 murdered students in Iguala. [Full report after the jump.] This will do nothing to help the German gunmaker, rumored to be up for sale thanks to financial difficulties. In fact, we’ve heard that the Freedom Group is interested. Meanwhile, in Mexico . . .

UK Politician: “All Gun Owners Should Kill Themselves”

Gun control is a fact of life in the former land of hope and glory. They lost their right to own a gun ages ago, traded it for almost ubiquitous surveillance and the warm comfort of the security state. The UK has become a continuous race to the bottom in terms of gun control legislation. It’s like looking into the future of America, if Michael Bloomberg and Vivek Murthy get their way. Recently there was a news report about a game keeper in the UK committing suicide, and while most people commented on the tragedy of the situation, there was one UK politician who celebrated the unfortunate event, and even went so far as to proclaim that in his opinion all gun owners should follow suit and kill themselves. No, really.

Are You Putting the Second Amendment at Risk?

Second Amendment

This article originally appeared at libertybriefing.com. It’s republished here with permission.

By Jeff Siegel

I’m not sure what’s worse … left-wing anti-gun zealots or irresponsible gun owners. As an unapologetic supporter of the Second Amendment, I have no patience for rules or regulations that trample the rights of U.S citizens to keep and bear arms. This is unwavering for me. There’s no middle ground. That being said, I also have no patience for gun owners who don’t respect firearms . . .

What Caliber for Escaped Cow?

548f2f3ecdaba.image

Reader Richard Ashcraft writes:

On Friday our town was terrorized by Betsy the barbaric bovine before being put down by one of Pocatello’s finest. However she managed to ram a few cars, “nearly” caused a few accidents and put many lives in danger before the police could arrive. Sunday, four more crazy cows made a break for it. I think these incidents raise some good questions in relation to concealed carry and gun rights . . .

A Bad Day At the Range Beats a Good Day at Work

image1-2

With my chores and do-list finally done, I set out to gather my gear for a relaxing few hours at the range. It’s Sunday, but my local range rarely has a crowd and I’m looking forward to finishing a gun review for my favorite gun site. I grab two long guns. One is a shotgun I’m writing the review on, the other is my latest acquisition, an FN PBR in .308. I throw a crapload of shotgun ammo in a big bag, and grab a box of nice American Eagle 168 grain OTM for the rifle. I’m just going to shoot 10-15 rounds for a first shakedown of the rifle. Cleaning kit, muffs, plugs, spotting scope, and my all important steaming cup of coffee. Rich, dark Italian roast . . .

WA Deputy Sheriff: MRAP Protects Against “Constitutionalists”

Regular readers know that TTAG is wary about linking to anything coming from infowars.com – especially as we just asked you if we should delete Loony Tunes conspiracy theory comments from our comments section. The video above overcame our reticence. The unidentified Spokane Valley [WA] Sheriff above clearly states that his peeps need an MRAP to deal with the threat posed by “constitutionalists” and “a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition.” I don’t know about you, but the NSA does. And they know I’m guilty on both counts – although I’d like a legal definition of “lots” to see if I qualify for a visit from my friendly neighborhood SWAT team. TTAG tipster RA has this to say about that . . .

Incendiary Image of the Day: Do You Think She Wished She Had a Gun?

sydney15n-1-web

I hope this image is incendiary to all the citizens of Australia who enabled civilian disarmament, leaving themselves defenseless against criminals, crazies and terrorists. I hope it’s incendiary to the American antis who use any example of “gun violence” to lobby for limitations on Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. But no, it won’t be. Not in the way I’d like. Now that the attack is over (police stormed the Sydney cafe), the American and Australian antis will use this incident to continue their crusade against common sense armed self-defense. So I find this image and its inevitable aftermath incendiary. You? [h/t PetitionForRedress]

OMG! A Prop Rifle! In a School! OMG!

seahawk2tst

“I think that’s negative. That’s not probably supposed to be. I think it’s not proper, it’s improper to have guns in school,” proclaimed Neptune Middle School parent Armando Vega when informed that eighth grade teacher Gema Evans had illustrated a history lesson with – gasp! – a prop rifle. Thankfully, not every parent staggered toward the fainting couch when they heard the news. As parent Maurice Dellafano pointed out, “It’s just a prop. No big deal. Can’t fire, so who’s it going to hurt?” So no biggie, right? Well . . .

D.C. Museum Features Charles Whitman’s Rifle

Screen Shot 2014-12-13 at 3.09.20 PM

“On Aug. 1, 1966, Charles Whitman killed 16 people and wounded 32 more in Austin from atop the University of Texas Tower. Whitman, a former marine, terrorized the campus for 90 minutes, killing students, pedestrians, and unborn children with pinpoint accuracy.” You probably knew all that. But did you know that in addition to the National Portrait Gallery, the Air and Space Museum, the Vietnam War Memorial the Museum of Natural History and the Newseum, Washington, D.C. is also home to the Crime Museum? That’s probably the only place where it might make sense to display Witman’s rifle . . .
