David Codrea Questions For NRA. Rots O’Ruck Buddy!!!

David Codrea thinks there should more transparency in NRA Board Elections.

Really? In the oldest Gun Control Organization in the country?

The NRA has been AWOL longer than most of us have been alive.(Click link here:http://www.nrawol.net/ )

The NRA, always there when you do not need them and never there when you do.

For what it is worth, tantalizing excerpt here:

As a start, I’d like to see each candidate for the BOD specifically answer the following questions, adapted from a questionnaire I have sent in the past to political candidates who claim to be pro-Second Amendment. I’ve done this for the past four years in a row, and have no real hope that this year will finally be the one to make the big difference. But we need to keep chipping away at the apathy, and perhaps if enough of us join in and demand candidates answer somebody’s questions with completeness and candor, we can begin to effect real change.

Bug Out Kit In A Milk Jug

This is a pretty neat idea if you need to have essentials available at various locations and do not want to go to the trouble to purchase commercial kits which may or may not be stocked with the items you need.

Not a substitute for better preparation, but certainly useful for fishing boats and cars and remote locations.

Definitely customize to your individual requirements.

Australia Smokey The Bear Is Evil And Needs To Retire!!!!

One of the earliest discussion topics here on the JohnJacobH Blog has been about Wildfires and Tree Worship and the generally insane attitude of contemporary culture toward the wilderness and even ungroomed undergrowth in urban areas.

There is a separate category for these posts:


There is the excellent post Nine Myths About Forest Fires:


And yet, the annual damage from monster fires increases.

Australia is the latest to learn the horrific consequences of misplaced environmental compassion:

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Bushfire expert David Packham at Melbourne’s Monash University has blamed green groups, saying their opposition to controlled clearance in forests known as burn-offs had allowed leaves, bark and dead wood to build up for decades, providing fuel for the fires.

“Elements of the (green) movement are behaving like eco-terrorists, waging war against proscribed burning and fuel management,” Packham, a former supervisor at the government-run Bureau of Meteorology, told The Australian newspaper.

Sydney Morning Herald columnist Miranda Devine also railed against “greenies,” who she said had stopped politicians and bureaucrats from taking steps to reduce the fire hazard with their insistence that forests remain pristine.

“If politicians are intent on whipping up a lynch mob to divert attention from their own culpability, it is not arsonists who should be hanging from the lamp-posts but greenies,” she wrote.

Homemade Guns Save Villagers In Bangadi,Congo

It is inaccurate to call these “homemade” guns.

They are really craftsmen or artisan or even jobshop guns. Do they have the fit and finish or capacity of even the crudest Western jobshop gun? Probably not.

Do they do the job required of them? Apparently so.

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Jules Zunga, who says he’s been making guns for nearly 50 years, shapes the stock of a shotgun as he works in Bangadi, about 40 km (25 miles) from Congo’s border with Sudan, on Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2009. In this remote northeastern corner of Congo nearly 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) from the capital, the residents of Bangadi have successfully driven off two attacks by the Ugandan rebels who have killed at least 900 people since Christmas.

Update To The Update On the Michael Bane Gunsafe Saga

Michael Bane has apparently achieved closure on the Cannon Gunsafe debacle.

While I have many thoughts on the topic of gunsafes and their deployment and use, if I talked publicly about those thoughts I would have to resort to permanent rendition for anyone who overheard.

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Fair question…why did I choose Liberty Safes?

It’s one of those “wisdom of crowds”…things. Out of the hundreds of emails I received in the wake of the problems I had with my Cannon Safe, more of you guys overwhelmingly recommended Liberty Safes than any other brand. It wasn’t even close, either. At least one person who had had trouble initially with his Liberty lock still unconditionally recommended Liberty because of the high quality of their customer service, “and I called ’em some ugly names, too!”

Yes, It Is True! GoodCopNews!

Truthfully, I enjoy a salacious evil cop story as much as the next guy.

But I admit I am a little surprised at the amount of traffic my little post from last August about the demise of the BadCopNews Website has generated in the ensuing months.

It is my #1 most frequently viewed post even with some built in fudge factor for the rather quirky WordPress Click Counter.

What makes this a paradox is the simple fact some of the most passionate knowledgable advocates for liberty, the 2nd Amendment and a Constitutional Republic just happen to be……surprise!—- Ex Cops.

So, in the interest of fair, balanced, precise and accurate reportage I list here four of the best Ex Cop Liberty Advocates. (With more to be added as they come to my attention).


Norm Stamper is featured in the Reason Youtube Video. He reviews the horror of the War On Drugs,which as 2nd Amendment Activists have learned to their alarm,is actually a War On The Constitution and the Bill Of Rights.

Stamper is a cop who saw it all during his 34 years on active duty. As Police Chief of Seattle from 1994 through 2000, he was in charge during violent World Trade Organization protests in the Emerald City.


Heartland USA is the website of Greg Evenson, a former Kansas State Trooper who is very outspoken about the implications of Martial Law and the War On Terror.


Greg Evenson is an award winning Kansas Lawman and former Kansas State Trooper.
He is author of The Sovereignty Papers and has completed two inspirational singing CD’s “Hymns from the Heartland” and “After the Storm.”

You may visit his website at http://www.theheartlandusa.com to get your copies of this and other materials offered by Greg. See the NWV central advertising banners for ordering information, also. Greg may be reached at his website on the Radio page for a scheduled speaking or concert date as well.

Also the author of “THE QUEST AND THE QUARRY”–a southern novel of the hunt. Firearms columnist for LOUISIANA, NORTH & SOUTH CAROLINA, and MISSISSIPPI SPORTSMAN.

Update #1!

I cannot believe I left Sheriff Richard Mack off this list!

Sheriff Richard Mack was the first sheriff in America to file against the Brady Bill. Over the next several years he began looking beyond that one unconstitutional measure to realize that all of the rights of Americans were at risk.

To protect our rights he decided to speak out, calling all law enforcement officers to their duty. That duty will always remain to uphold the Constitution and secure the rights of ordinary Americans against all aggressors, especially their own government.
