Dennis Rogers Owns a Gun Too!


It must be that time of the year! Raleigh Constituent arrives with a new tale of mischief and
mayhem from the Capital City of North Carolina…..

Dear John Jacob;

Remember Raleigh News & Observer Columnist Barry Saunders?

The celebrity cheerleader who never saw a gun control idea he did not embrace
unless it violated the JaneFondian precept of “Rules For Thee, BUT Not For ME?

His reputation as a gungrabber was, ahem, slightly tarnished when he let it
slip that he, in fact, owned a gun, but was not really heavily trained in
conscientious weapon manipulation.

It may be hard to remember Gun Control Barry because the News & Observer has
diligently scrubbed his gun control columns from the Internet.

(See for yourself GRNC LINK HERE )

Annnnnyway, the News & Observer has once again published YET ANOTHER gun control
homily and retired News & Observer Emeritus Columnist Dennis Rogers has stepped
into the cheerleader role on Facebook.

Dennis Rogers steps up to the plate with Facebook praise for Raleigh News & Observer Editorial:


EXCEPT for one small detail:

In 1998 Dennis Rogers openly admitted he kept at least one (or more!) loaded guns
around his house (WITH NO SAFETY).

Yes, Mr. Rogers joins the vast overwhelming majority of Democrats who were for an idea
before they were against it. (Known on the street as a flip flopper)


Gosh, I love this town!

Bemusedly yours,
Raleigh Constituent

You Are Welcome GRNC!


You are welcome GRNC! No need to thank us! We understand.

Wow! Grassroots North Carolina actually picked up a story first published here on the humble loveable blog of yours truly- JJH RKBA BLOG! CLICK LINK HERE

Thanks to Raleigh Constituent whose tireless reportage brings you, the reader, all the finest 2nd Amendment news available from the Tarheel State the JJH Blog was the first to publish LIBERAL DEMOCRAT Barry Saunders public admission he is a gun toting idiot, a danger to himself and others, and an unreliable adult.

BUT! THERE WAS NO CREDIT OR LINK to anything from here! SOB! It only took GRNC six days to notice what we noticed on May 30th! SOB! We do and We do and We do and this is the thanks We get! SOB!

At this rate it will only take another six years for GRNC to notice the 2nd Amendment has only one comma! After all, it has only been twenty years since they first became a public lobby. SOB!


But it is okay GRNC. We still love you and your stories of intrepid activism from North Carolina!
Even if you do not include us in your Snoopy Victory dance.

Barry Saunders OWNS A GUN!



More Restaurant Carry hijinks and hilarity from the Capital of North Carolina courtesy of correspondent RALEIGH CONSTITUENT:

Dear John Jacob;

You can file this under hashtag #bolshevikbegone or #bolshevikhypocrite.

Restaurant carry continues to roil the formerly placid waters of North Carolina’s murky backwater Communist Swamp.

You may remember last summer the current owner of the highest of high-profile DEMOCRAT Progressive Liberal watering holes learned to his horror and amazement his fellow travelers in the Bolshevik Community carried pistols in his restaurant for years whether it was legal or not.


This year another high-profile DEMOCRAT restaurateur was shocked when his new restaurant was robbed days after opening ceremonies which included prominent display of a “no guns” sticker on the entry door.

Roundly heckled on social media about a possible connection between “no guns” and “armed robbers” local celebrity eatery entrepreneur Greg Hatem declared he was mad as hell and offered a $2,000 dollar reward for the capture and conviction of the illiterate miscreants who failed to abide by the posted notice that declared his facility “gun free”.


But the BIG NEWS in this story is the revelation that Barry Saunders OWNS A GUN!

Yes, I repeat, Barry Saunders, DEMOCRAT card-carrying left-wing progressive local print columnist, who never saw a Bolshevik talking point he did not french kiss ad nauseam in multiple columns which (ostensibly) discussed a myriad variety of topics, OWNS A GUN!

He not only owns a gun but he owns it in Durham- North Carolina’s gun control capital!

Yes, in the course of chastising hecklers who dared comment on the travesty of a public no guns policy for a high traffic (and cash rich) venue Mr. Saunders revealed he once openly brandished a pistol as he chased a home invader from his apartment into the fair streets of the city! Not only did he brandish a gun but he clearly intended to shoot an unarmed man with premeditation! What “duty to retreat” restriction muddied his progressive thought process? Question: Did the perp wear a hoodie? Just curious, I say, just curious.


Can you say Bolshevik Jane Fonda Hypocrite? I thought you could! At least he is honest about the “ridiculous self” part!

Naturally, no discussion of the publicly correct, privately corrupt Mr. Saunders qualifications to possess, transport or use any implement of modern technology as beneficial as a bullet spewing mechanical device.

He clearly travels amongst the “rules for thee but not for me” crowd.

So if you meet him on the street be careful. That thing in his pocket does not mean he is happy to see you and it might just accidentally discharge! At least that is what North Carolina pinko’s tell the rest of us!


Gosh, I love this state!

Bemusedly yours,
Raleigh Constituent

School Teachers with guns! From a story by the venerable Ruth Woodman

Boy, one for the When I Was A Kid file for sure! Mayberry on steroids before there was a Mayberry! Travel now down the road to yesteryear and learn how things were in the good ole days! A tale of shootin’ and teachin’ and small town life. Oh yeah, did I mention there was prayer in school????

LawDog Commemorates 9/11

Read it! Whut he said. Wish I’d of said that or something similar!

Ten years ago I said if George W. was serious about National Security he would pass out fire hoses to neighbor Community Watch Teams if it was so important to throw money and infrastructure at the situation. More people would have learned more valuable skills in a few weeks better, faster, cheaper, as they practiced teamwork through (Fire) training drills than anything the Government has done in a decade!

Sadly it was not to be.


Tantalizing Excerpt:

Seems the Thing To Do Today is to remember what you were doing on this date, ten years ago.

Really? One tiny decade later? Ask me on the fiftieth anniversary. That’s a decent amount of time for commemoration.

Instead we should be remembering what we weren’t doing on this day ten years ago.

If that is not enough red meat for you head over to Frank W. James for an after dinner mint:



Some of us, me in particular, find these ‘security searches’, where ever they are practiced, so demeaning and so senseless that our blood pressure rises and anger management becomes not a term associated with others, but a condition similar in many respects to breathing.

My internal anger response is pre-programed and subconscious.

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.

Massad Ayoob- When I Was A Kid

And then there were four…..

No less than Massad Ayoob himself joins the “When I was a kid chorus” sung here at John Jacob H over and over and over again. Category Link HERE

While Mr. Ayoob frequently slides toward the fringe of the “reasonable restriction” crowd, his anecdote from childhood rings true with all the other childhood stories accumulated thus far.


Delightful Excerpt:

I grew up with firearms. By the age of nine, I had a .22 rifle, a shotgun, and a Winchester 94 deer rifle hanging on a rack in my bedroom. At the age of 12, I had a loaded Colt .45 automatic in the desk drawer in that same bedroom.
