The fight for relevance gets tougher as the years go by, as the former object of post-Columbine cultural indignation will attest . . . Marilyn Manson Aims Fake Rifle At San Bernardino Crowd, Calls It ‘Act Of Theater’ . . .
Shock rocker Marilyn Manson is defending his decision to point what appeared to be a fake rifle at a concert crowd in San Bernardino as part of his act.
Manson – confined to a wheelchair after an on-tour accident in September that left him with a broken leg – aimed what turned out to be a prop microphone at the crowd at the Glen Helen Amphitheater while being rolled around on stage as he sang “We Know Where You F—– Live”.
Photos and video of the stunt were posted to social media just hours after a gunman opened fire on a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, killing at least 26 people.
Pay no attention to the armed self-defender behind that curtain! . . . Mass shootings, irrationality, and why you shouldn’t bring a gun to church . . .
I am a conservative and a defender of the 2nd Amendment right to own weapons, and there are no doubt cases in which citizens who live and work in dangerous areas can make themselves safer through responsible gun ownership.
Packing in church, however, is not one of those cases. Despite wall-to-wall media coverage, mass shooting incidents are extremely rare: You are highly unlikely to die in one. Besides, civilians who think they’re going to be saviors at the next church shooting are more likely to get in the way of trained law enforcement personnel than they are to be of any help as a backup posse.

How does the ACLU count to ten? One, three, four . . . The ACLU Wants to Be the NRA, Without All the Guns . . .
The report suggested the ACLU adopt the NRA’s letter-grade system for political candidates, perhaps backed by a political action committee to support those who scored well. There was also great potential in civil liberties swag, everything from hats and t-shirts to encryption software endorsed by the group’s privacy experts and ACLU-branded Passover Haggadahs.
The main thing Romero envied about the NRA was how it leveraged a sense of identity to advance its political agenda. “The NRA is all about the gun lifestyle, everything from gun clubs and shooting ranges to fathers teaching their daughters how to hunt. We began to think, ‘How can we go from focusing on the head to focusing on the heart?’” he said.
One Benjamin buys a Comp-Tac holster for wheelchair-bound Americans, especially useful for customers who live in an open carry state . . . Wheelchair Holster
The wheelchair holster system uses Comp-Tac’s popular International Holster with a hex screw mount that allows it to be clamped to a wheelchair using two firm gripping clamp mounts that are adjustable to different bar diameters. System comes complete with holster and clamping assembly.
Although the wheelchair holster was initially designed for assembly on a wheelchair, it is compatible with many other mounting applications such as bicycles, motorcycles, ATV’s, etc. The possibilities are endless.
The International’s all-Kydex body provides a rigid material that is custom fit to each firearm and maintains its shape even with the pistol un-holstered.
The bills come after 26 people were killed this past weekend when a gunman opened fire at a church in Texas. It also follows the Las Vegas shooting, in which more than 50 people were killed at a country music festival in October.The state’s Senate majority leader said the recent shootings demonstrate the importance of this legislation, USA Today reported.
“Some have said it’s insensitive to bring up these issues now, but I feel quite the opposite,” state Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof (R) said.
“The recent events will allow us to look at how we can deter those who want to do harm. And responsible, well-trained, licensed concealed-pistol holders can be one of those deterrents,” he said.
