North Carolina’s Pistol Packing Chancellor – Go Wolfpack!


One of the more interesting Public Figure Concealed Handgun Permit Records to emerge from Not is that of North Carolina State University Chancellor James Oblinger.

While I think this is a good thing, I have to wonder how publicly and forcefully he has lobbied for his students and professors to have the same right to self defense and 2nd Amendment Protections he so obviously enjoys? Academic Freedom and all that sort of thing!

Not a topic on his official website that I can find. Maybe younger stronger eyes can spot it.



How about it Chancellor? Have you established a liason with Students For Concealed Carry On Campus?

Gold Standard Example Of New Hampshire Open Carry Activism

Still relevant after lo, these many years, from the Wayback Archives, watch Dave Ridley efficiently assert his right to Constitutional Carry in an extremely hostile environment

If you have not seen this video, watch it now.

It represents the Gold Standard of RKBA Activism.

The Free Staters had an off site recording system in place (Porcupine 411), were well rehearsed for any encounter of the official kind and properly educated some obviously uninformed Police.

We could all take a lesson from the Intrepid Free Staters especially if you fancy yourself a “three percenter” or “threshold of outrage type”. Consider this a training exercise for future encounters in the Aftertimes. It will not get any easier if you do not practice now.

Descriptive Summary:

Dave Ridley accosted by three police for doing something legal. Dave’s politeness is only surpassed by Russell’s outrage. See Dave’s latest adventure at

Searchable Concealed Carry Database. Find Public Officials With CCW Permits!


Does your Public Official have a Concealed Carry Permit? How about your neighbor?

Search this database and learn who is naughty and who is nice.

Note former FEDERAL PROSECUTOR and alleged Obama supporter George Mendelson carries personal protection because he is “in fear for his life”.

I guess We, the Peasants, have not the burden of such worries.

Another great Jim Shockey hunt on Youtube. Listen to the old timey musical score from a 1930’s movie dramatize the action. Now them’s there REAL production values. ( Another show with great music is SCI Expedition Safari. Somehow Mike Rogers has not made it to Youtube, but there are some brief clips on the Outdoor Channel Website.)

Rufus Hussey Beanshooter Man Video (Slingshot Guru)


David Codrea has come across a video of my hero, Rufus Hussey, Beanshooter Man (Slingshot Guru).

As a proud owner of a genuine Rufus Hussey Derringer Beanshooter, Serial Number 9xxx, in a nifty display case in my hallway, I am reminded everytime I see it humans survive and fight with their minds.

Weapons are just accessories.

Dauntless New Hampshire Free Stater Wins 4 For 4 In Court

Ivy Ankrom, New Hampshire Liberty Activist, successfully defeats Disorderly Conduct Charges lodged against her.

Tantalizing Excerpt:
Sponsor: – Manchester District Court judge delivers fourth victory to Grafton, New Hampshire liberty activist Ivy Ankrom. That means she’s four for four in her victimless crime trial.

Her novel defense? The Right to Keep and Bear Arms includes the right not to be armed, hence no disorderly conduct possible.

Ivy’s personal report in this comment:


Great Jumping Jehosaphat! Rush Limbaugh Agrees With ME!

Okay, I do not listen to Rush Limbaugh all 15 hours a week, in fact, twenty minutes a day is more than I can manage most days so maybe Rush pounds this topic on a regular basis and I just never heard it.

But sometime in the last week he touched on a subject frequently discussed in my neck of the woods, to wit: most people do not seem to realize they do NOT OWN their home.

They only have the right to live there for as long as they send a monthly payment for up to thirty years.

Thank you Rush! For some reason, if it comes from radio the observation has more validity than when I humbly bring up the topic in my small circle. Very nice. Very Good.

In fact, even if you do own your home you will be surrounded by people angry when they discover they do not own theirs.

Here’s the problem. In his own special half baked, half bassackwards, half-brain-tied-behind-his-back-just to-be-fair, Rush failed to drop the other shoe. (Again, maybe this is a common topic for him beyond the range of my ears most of the time.)

What is the other shoe? You do not OWN your money until the Government says you do, you do not even OWN your life until the Government or even A Government says you do.

Correct. Your Government, or ANY Government or non-Government Entity can and will seize your wealth, your life, your property should they so choose.

Thats right. THEY, the kakistocrats, will take your 401(K), your safe deposit box, your car, your crops or anything else that is glued down, nailed in place and painted over if it suits their purpose.

This is not some idle intellectual concept associated with collateral damage from some war or rumor of war.

Ask the people who had a safe deposit box at or near the Twin Towers what happened to their stuff.

Even better ask the women and children who had a year’s supply of food seized by armed Government Agents just two weeks ago in LaGrange, Ohio.

Or the hundreds of injured people in Mumbai, India.

Or listen to the unheard prayer of some small child as he or she was stabbed to death by a pitchfork wielding maniac because some Government Kakistocrat decided they were too incapable to have access to a firearm.

For the life of me, I can not understand why more people are unable to grasp the simple concept of boots-on-the-ground, immediate, self reliant, do-it-yourself self defense.

Perhaps it helps to explain the current state of dissonance most people exhibit when they realize George W., the Vote Freedom First President, is busy nationalizing all his crony capitalist’s companies with the wealth and work stockpiled in the United States National Treasury.

Enter the 2nd Amendment for the express purpose of relief in the dire circumstance of sovereignty over your life and the life of your loved ones in times exactly like this.

The 2nd Amendment says, very simply, the price Kakistocrats pay to seize your assets will exceed the value retained after said seizure. In other words, Mr/Mrs/Ms. Kakistocrat all the seized gold in the world will be worthless if you are too dead or crippled to enjoy it.

So Rush, if you want to really impress me talk about this.

You talk about cigars, you talk about golf, you talk about baseball, you talk about the Steelers, may be it is time for you to talk about the rifle scope you just zeroed, or your scores at a celebrity IDPA match. Maybe you could spend time to revel in the glorious vacation you spent on “North To Alaska” with Larry Csonka.

I remember the last time you discussed duck hunting way back in 1991(?). That did not go so well because you tried to ridicule duck’s intelligence and thus undermined the listeners in your audience who understood duck hunting.

But, gosh, it has been-what? 15-17 years? Surely in the interiem you have educated yourself more thoroughly and developed a deeper interest in the All American activity of hunting and shooting and 2nd Amendment Self Defense.

So how about it Mr. Limbaugh? A little airtime for the 2nd Amendment in the concrete (rather than the abstract) in these times of tumult and economic uproar?



Okay, Group Hug! Liberty Sphere Blog Needs Love!

David Codrea observes Liberty Sphere Blog just does not feel the love from all their hard work!

We have all been there, done that, and some of us (me) have burned the tee-shirt.

So, in the interests of solidarity and because there is a really good round-up of gun news from all over the web every day or so, I hereby post a link to Liberty Sphere both in this post and on my blogroll.

Now my question:

Will Liberty Sphere find my magnum opus: Trees Are Evil, They Deserve To Die worthy of linkage on HIS blog?

Just an innocent inquiry.
