August 23rd, 2000; A Day That Lives In Infamy

For some reason, in August of every year, the DEMocrat RC Soles shooting story makes the blogosphere rounds. If blogospherists wish to recirculate August stories from the dog days of yesteryear, perhaps the heroic battle of Ashley Carpenter against insurmountable odds should be revisited? Repost some variation of this cautionary tale to your friends, family, email accounts, online forums! Always remember, never forget!

In memoriam: Ashley Carpenter, Age 9 and  John William Carpenter, Age 7

On August 23rd, 2000 a California Family bore the full force and fury of Liberal Democrat Rule when two small children were sacrificed on the alter of ruinous political gun control theory and law in an incident that has become known as the Merced Pitchfork Murders.

If you have not heard this story spend some time and learn today.

Heed the words of  Mary Carpenter, grandmother of Ashley and John William: “Do not forget the Carpenter Story-the Big Bad Wolf does not come to the front door and knock, he hides in the garage and jimmies the kitchen door lock with a butter knife.” “May you (Legislators) stand before God and man as my two precious grand-children’s killer if you pass any more gun legislation that will make me a felon should I own a handgun or any other gun for that matter.”

Repeat Ashley Carpenter’s tale around the campfire, at the dinner table, cocktail parties, bars, at family gatherings, sewing circles, Bible Study Groups and everywhere else.

Shout out her name at conventions, meetings and public gatherings. Whisper it in quiet places and solemn times.

Behold the handiwork of the Roe v. Wade Liberal Democrat Party. They will literally kill children to “save them”, before they are born and after.

Players Retreat: When Liberals Collide!

Another fine tale of mischief and mayhem from the Capital of North Carolina courtesy of correspondent RALEIGH CONSTITUENT:

Players Retreat: When Liberals Collide!

Dear John Jacob;


You may have heard back in July a Purse Fight Royale’ broke out here in Raleigh at Player’s Retreat- a vintage local eatery some 60 years old- in regard to the topic of Concealed Carry.


The fuss began when newbie red diaper Liberal City Democrats faced off with the only implacable enemy they really have here in North Carolina- local yellow dog Country Democrats. Needless to say when these two paws of the same weasel engage in a philosophical shadow boxing match hijinks ensue.


At least one Dummiecrat always limps away with a black eye and bloody nose; similar to the throwdown that just unfolded in the Colorado Recall elections.

For six decades Players Retreat has been the Southern Redneck answer to the Irish Pub; the British Tavern; the German Beer Hall; or even the Super Max Prison Cafeteria with a touch of Biker Bar or Longshoreman Waterfront Dive thrown in for some additional zest.


This fine establishment was founded in 1951 when Raleigh was a true sleepy little College Town with few alternatives for after work entertainment, so the PR, as it is known, became the venue of choice for everyone including the Governor; the White Shoe attorney crowd; blue collar workers and even incoming freshman from the campus of what is now known as North Carolina State University. A true egalitarian mix of all social classes.


Nowadays under the current management of one Gus Gusler the interior ambiance has remained remarkably unchanged from earlier times – right down to the boxy wooden florescent light fixtures with trademark red bulbs and open unshielded egg crate decorative grates that trap and hold every last greasy dust bunny loose enough to float up into the half inch squares.


Why a gooey hairball never drifts back down from these ancient fixtures into the admittedly excellent food and drink served by Mr. Gusler is just part of the mysterious charm of the place.


Mr.Gusler’s big innovation has been to gentrify the menu with a fine contemporary selection of local craft beers, an exceptional assortment of upscale sipping liquors and he will even serve his clientele “Watermelon Cucumber Gazpacho with Pickled Shrimp” at their request – a far cry from the hearty robust Bernie Burger with a side of fries and a cold bottle of Miller served as yesteryear’s daily special .


So that was the state of affairs in July when the situation got a little dicey because plucky 2nd Amendment Activists at Grass Roots North Carolina managed to push through a “restaurant carry” bill in the General Assembly to legalize possession of pistols in venues which serve alcohol provided the Pistol Permit Holder does not drink.


For some reason this legislation did not sit well with Mr. Gusler, and he immediately took to Facebook to issue a swift and draconian response. He threatened to install a metal detector at the entrance to his establishment!


And THAT is when the fur began to fly!


Come to find out some of his trusted Communist fellow travelers admitted IN WRITING to possession of concealed weapons in his establishment right under his nose for the past decade regardless of current law or statute!

PRFinalC
With their written confession in his possession Mr. Gusler did not hesitate to turn on his loyal clientele and publicly brand them as criminals!

PlayersRetreatPacking4A
The allegation of criminal behavior did not sit very well with said clientele and one clienteleee immediately and publicly reminded Mr. Gusler his establishment MIGHT be guilty of serving alcohol to underage drinkers and “overserving” patrons who may have already passed their limit of alcohol consumption.

PRFinalA

The shouting match stopped just short of summoning a code compliance visit from the Health Department to check overall sanitation and hygiene on the premises.


After all, good liberals must stick together and paper over their differences to let the good times roll!


Now outside observers of an inquiring turn of mind might notice a number of curious perplexities in this little Snafu.


Are there really Democrat Concealed Carry Pistol Permittees in North Carolina dumb enough to confess IN WRITING to the crime of weapon possession while intoxicated?


And if Democrats carry pistols while intoxicated does that not bolster the argument that criminal behavior cannot be legislated?


And if this conduct has occurred for over a decade without incident, does that fact not bolster the argument that weapons are not automatically evil and the root source of all bad things in the world? Could the truth be a malignant mentality is more likely to produce a malignant outcome than any physical object?


These and many other perplexities remain currently unresolved. And Players Retreat seems to have resumed normal operations for now.


But stay tuned. Who knows what new excitement tomorrow will bring?

Bemusedly yours,
Raleigh Constituent

Nuclear Suitcase Bomb 101

SuitcaseBombB

The venerable James Burke cut quite a swath through the intellectual history community circa 1978 with his thesis on the connection between widely separated innovations and their collective impact on Society.

Long before “preppers” and “survivalists” and “SHTF types”, Mr. Burke explained the thin veneer of Civilization in terms everyone could understand.

One of his eloquent pithy soliloquies is now available for your perusal courtesy of NC Gun Guy.

In the post Cold War era it is truly said when nuclear devices are outlawed only outlaws will have nuclear devices.

A few repairable examples of the relic described in the video are bound to be floating around somewhere and well within the budget of say, a George Soros, Bill Gates, Ross Perot or even some International cabal of terrorists- Taliban, Al Quaeda, North Korea or Iran to acquire, possess, transport, and deploy.

While I am sure the video example is a mock up or at best a trainer, the concept boggles the mind.

So while the Neville Chamberlains among us fret about new and better ways to visit devastation on the great unwashed masses with some fancy pants gun control restrictions, the clock ticks down on this neutered Society of ours.

Sleep well.

Tango Fox 1 Comma 2nd Amendment

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.

Brits Protest American Internet Censorship

American Legislative Tyranny is so out-of-control the British have begun to protest.

You know, England where they are subjects, not citizens, and under the thumb of the Official Secrets Act? Yeah, those British.

Seems at least one Brit is concerned about the implications of the Stop Online Piracy Act and provides some startling examples of how it will be applied with the aid of current examples.

His soliloquy is, of course, enhanced by that wonderful upper crust Monty Python accent that makes even the most droll topic seem somehow absolutely riveting – a good thing- since the people in the United States most likely to be immediately affected by this legislation would be, of course, your local gun blogger, 2nd Amendment RKBA Activist.

Yes, David Codrea would no longer have to plead with his readers to “share the link” because there would no longer be a link to share.

As far as the need to share this link, it has already gone from 2,000 + this morning to 255,000+ as I write this.

Thank Heaven for British diction! Enjoy!

Hoo Boy! I am sure this is just a typo from our devout Muslim Neighbors.

I am glad to see these people exercise the freedom of Speech guaranteed by our Constitution.

Since I am a self-described Provincial you can imagine my surprise the messages are in English and sound suspiciously like Democrat Talking Points.

Obviously a black flag operation perpetrated by evil Republicans on an innocent and unsuspecting Muslim Community!!

At least one contributor has labeled the original author as a MODERATOR on that board!

Snag a copy while you can!!

Has NC Governor Committed An Impeachable Offense?

(The Oath Can Be Found At Minute 6:45)

Direct Link to Oath CLICK HERE

Poor Beverly Perdue. She cannot quite get the hang of this State of Emergency thing.

Is it possibly because she is just another product of our Public Education System and is thus unable to read, write, or comprehend all those complicated legal terms and concepts? Only her grade school teachers know for sure. If you can find any willing to claim her as student.

In any case, a number of CCH holders in counties East Of I-95 are somewhat uneasy about the Governor’s whimsical interpretation of General Statutes and worry whether their local officials will interpret their Oaths of Office as arbitrarily and capriciously as the Governor.

So even if the Governor believes herself correct, the local Sheriff, Police, District Attorney et al may believe otherwise and there is NOTHING the Governor can legally do to alter their behavior and statute interpretation.

Over at No Lawyers, Only Guns and Money Mr. Richardson has already expressed his reservations about the current state of affairs. CLICK LINK HERE

So where does the Impeachment part enter?

Recall almost exactly a year ago the Good Governor essentially suspended Dove Season as well as the 2nd Amendment for the ENTIRE State in name if not fact because of anticipated damage from Hurricane Earl. Mostly it seemed to depend upon which Authority found their neck in the noose at the time.

In short, NC criminalized an entire class of citizens. Including me and my companion, each carrying a gun as we passed through NC, and doing so legally as far as we knew. Of course, unless the traveler was tuned to the right radio station at the right moment, they could not have known they’d just been criminalized, as we didn’t until we’d already passed through. This does not make me warm and fuzzy.

THIS YEAR the Governor attempted to learn from past experience and issued Executive Order 103. CLICK LINK HERE

Executive Order 103 included Section 7 – The Chinese Menu Clause. The Governor picked one law from Column A and one law from Column B and essentially said she would selectively enforce the laws she liked and ignore the laws she did not like. The best ObamaNation intellectualism replicated in North Carolina! CLICK LINK HERE or HERE

Section 7.
This order is adopted pursuant to my powers under Article 1 of Chapter 166A of the General Statutes and under Article 36A of Chapter 14 of the General Statutes. It does not trigger the limitations on weapons in G.S. § 14-288.7 or impose any limitation on the consumption, transportation, sale or purchase of alcoholic beverages.

Unfortunately, as per her Oath Of Office, that is not allowed and is thus impeachable as a high crime and misdemeanor.
