From Raleigh Constituent comes news of an evening Blood Dance at a popular local Bolshevik hangout– Quail Ridge Bookstore in downtown Raleigh.
On the daïs will be all the usual suspects: North Carolina Congressional Gungrabber David Price, Local Media Apparatchik David Crabtree and Psychiatric Humanist Dr. Assad Meymandi.
They assemble to discuss the UPSWING ???? in violence and mass shooting.
Naturally, John Lott et. al have not been invited or given a seat at the discussion table because this is a topic ONLY the Bolshevik ruling class understands or can discuss!
Pass the word……
Really Boston? An entire city suspends an ENTIRE DAY of economic activity so a small Army of Police can take their sweet time looking for ONE PERSON?
It is not like you all just got up to go to the beach for the day.
Noooo, you all cowered behind your locked doors like some weird Zombie Apocalypse was underway.
What? You don’t have locks on your doors? Well, turn on the TV, maybe a bulletin will instruct you how to lean a chair up against the knob so perpetrators armed with EXPLOSIVES can not get in!
That will solve everything!
Jumping Jimney Cricket! Even snow storms have not crippled the entire city for an entire day!
A day of shame that will live in infamy!
The Great Beantown Hysterical Panic Attack!
In the London Blitz of 1940 Winston Churchill’s Government demonstrated to the world how to prevail over brutal adversity while under attack from hundreds of pounds of aerial bombs on a nightly basis with a firm resolve to continue the conduct of ordinary daily business.
In the Million Moron Marathon of 2013 ObamaNation’s Government demonstrated to the world how easy it was for two vandals to inflict millions of dollars in economic damage to an entire city with nothing more than ordinary kitchen cookware!
What fools these Bolshevik Liberals be! To what low estate have they brought the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave?

BOOM! Mayor Bloomberg’s Gun Control Advertising Campaign bombs with the most irresponsible example of firearm handling possible.
To err is human, to really foul things up acquire a computer and if you seek to ruin things beyond all repair call a Politician. Especially an outfit like Mayors For Gun Confiscation, because they make their own case for incompetent leadership even as they demand more compliance with their ridiculous edicts.
Today’s episode involves the release of two ostensibly passionate pleas for more stringent regulation delivered by an actor who has probably never handled or fired a firearm in his life. The errors are so off-the-wall egregious as to be almost beyond the ability of rational men to catalog.
Newsbusters website makes a noble attempt:
Mr. Bloomberg’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, produced two ads featuring a man holding a shotgun, wearing plaid flannel with a camouflage cap and sitting on the tailgate of a pickup truck. While a child swings on a tire in the background, the man says, “I support comprehensive background checks so criminals and the dangerously mentally ill can’t buy guns.”
The ad does not specify if the man is an actor, but he violates all three gun safety rules taught by the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Free lance wildcat posters have already appeared on discussion forums:
And, of course, here at JohnJacobH the topic of actors with good trigger discipline and muzzle awareness has been covered recently with the example of young child actor Bill Mumy who handled firearms expertly at the age of seven back in 1961:
Or senior actor Tom Selleck, who has been unable to set a good example of proper weapon manipulation up to the age of forty something.

Back in the prelapsarian days when Free Republic was an active vibrant website for Conservative thought and action, many vigorous 2nd Amendment debates were conducted amongst highly gifted Freepers.
Tango Fox contributed above and beyond the call of duty with his detailed analysis of the history and origin of the 2nd Amendment. In one of my early posts I archived his work in a text format,CLICK LINK HERE but as the Free Republic Archives slowly disappear down the memory hole, important work should be preserved in as many ways as possible.
He detailed the one comma 2nd Amendment with a rich tapestry of documentation and commentary.
So, today, please enjoy and save these screen shots from the Pleistocene days of the World Wide Web.
Tango Fox, you are missed and your work is not forgotten.
Tango Fox further discusses the ONE COMMA 2nd Amendment’s value and Robert Bork in the comments section:
Every year, on the eve of hunting season , a small group of spunky pastors and their congregations challenge IRS tyranny with Pulpit Freedom Sunday. Has your congregation or Pastor joined the movement?
If not, why not? It is not too late to add your voice.
Since my Free Republic Champion (Copernicus where art thou?) has been AWOL for over a year I do not follow events at Free Republic as closely as I once did, but I have learned long time Freeper and author Travis McGee has put his money where his heart is and concocted an interesting Falun Gong saber -rattling exercise.
On March 1st his contemporary action thriller *Enemies, Foreign and Domestic* will be available for free download from Amazon in a maneuver called Operation #EFAD.
The idea is to pump up download numbers so quickly the book will rise to the top of Amazon’s Bestseller Index.
You can help in two ways:
1. Publish the link everywhere.
2. Download the book.
It is a good read, but even if you already have a paid copy download another one for friends and family.
This could be a useful Public Relations Coupe if it works as designed.
Since Free Republic now seems to be AWOL two additional links to help explain the EFAD concept:
Communiqué #1: D-Day Minus Seven, February 23
Want to join a beat-up old ex-Navy SEAL, ocean sailor and book writer on a real-world covert cyber operation?
I knew you did. So here’s the deal. The idea is a national clandestine psyop, using my first novel as a vehicle.
On next Thursday, March 1, Enemies Foreign And Domestic will be put into Amazon Kindle’s free library.
Where EFAD’s free download promotion will be different from those of the thousands of fantasy/romance/vampire novels currently offered on Kindle, is that I’m simultaneously coordinating a mass plan to ensure that Operation EFAD goes hyper-viral on all constitutionally-oriented, freedom-loving, and Second Amendment websites and blogs at the same time.
Or on at least on as many as I can reach, and that is where you come in. There are literally hundreds of patriotic websites and blogs, and I can only reach a few. You can reach them all, every last one. And then some. More about this in the next communiqué on D Minus Six.
Today’s video highlights an important distinction between actual military combat veterans (in opposite corners of the country) and the armed thugs who populate the United States law enforcement culture – the ability to carry out a necessary assignment with honor and dignity.
Most American citizens have never met the two most important people who have an inordinate unwholesome influence over the course of their daily life – the Police Academy Trainer and the University Law Professor.
For better or worse, the Academy Trainer and the Law Professor almost single-handedly determine the actual street level application of law.
So, for example, in the case of Law Enforcement, We, the Trampled, are burdened with the unfathomable concept of “officer safety” which cheerfully countenances the summary execution of family pets and sucker punched pedestrians on the slimmest pretext in the course of an ordinary encounter all because 9 out of 10 Police Academy trainers agree it is “a good idea”!
Or, in the case of the accredited Attorney-at-law, entire philosophical constructs of principle and theory are completely ignored by the Law School establishment in favor of ‘stare decisis’ and case law!
Which brings us to today’s video of a California Sheriff cold cocking a citizen without shame in full public view and the soldier who immediately spotted the violation of protocol embodied therein.
Unlike the modern patrol officer modern combat soldiers enter truly hostile and dangerous environments with a lawyer on each shoulder who eagerly await any opportunity to condemn them for any misstep -intentional or accidental. They accept the hazard as part of the assigned duty and perform fearlessly.
Compare that mentality to the “officer safety culture” which escalates the smallest encounter into a life threatening situation.
Thank you soldier for your service to our country both on active duty and off.
Coincidentally William Norman Grigg discusses virtually the same topic in his current column on the excellent Pro Libertate blog:
Anne Dekins was a loud-mouthed party girl — or at least, that’s what the arrest warrant suggested. Whatever she may have done in the past, Miss Dekins was quietly minding her own business when Officer Samuel Bray found her on the street and began to haul her away.
Dekins wasn’t inclined to go quietly, and she put up a struggle. Her cries for help attracted the interest of several armed men led by an individual named Tooley, who confronted Bray and demanded to know what he was doing to the frantic woman. The officer produced his official credentials and insisted that he was making a lawful arrest for “disorderly conduct.” When witnesses disputed that description, Bray called for backup.
Tooley and his associates ordered Bray to release the woman, and then took action to enforce that lawful order. After Bray’s partner was killed in the ensuing struggle, Tooley and his associates were arrested for murder. The trial court threw out the murder charge, ruling that the warrant was defective. Since the arrest was illegal, the court pointed out, Dekins had a right to resist – and bystanders likewise had a right, if not a positive duty, to assist her. The defendants were eventually found guilty of manslaughter, but quickly pardoned and set free.
By trying to enforce an invalid warrant, Bray “did not act as a constable, but a common oppressor,” observed the trial court. Tooley and the other bystanders were properly “provoked” by the act of aggressive violence against Anne Dekins, and their forceful but measured response – first demanding that the abductor release the hostage, then exercising defensive force to free her – was entirely appropriate.
Lawless violence against the helpless “is a sufficient provocation to all people out of compassion” in any circumstance, observed the court, “much more where it is done under a colour of justice, and where the liberty of the subject is invaded….” In fact, an act of that kind carried out by a law enforcement official is nothing less than “a provocation to all the subjects of England.”
For those of you concerned about the “State Of The Union” the last five minutes of this interview include the most uplifting comments I have heard in a while.
