Good Trigger Discipline circa 1961

MattelGunHandle6

Seven year old Child Actor Bill Mumy put all the usual Hollywood ignorami to shame in this 1961 Mattel Commercial when he demonstrated excellent pistol handling and trigger discipline! Watch the Youtube video carefully. The little tyke fires the pistol and makes a conscious effort to keep his finger out of the trigger guard.

We discussed normal Hollyweird weapon proficiency in the Tom Selleck kerfuffle of 2011.

Just Say NO!

With the elevation of Etch-a-Sketch Romney to challenge ObamaNation maybe it is time for We, The Exasperated, to just say NO!

It was originally Nancy Reagan’s idea after all. Can you just say NO? Will you just say NO?

Maybe it is my imagination, but I seem to see a number of examples in my daily life where people have just taken a tip from the lawlessness of ObamaNation and assumed the cause of Constitutional Restoration without consulting their neighbors, or without asking authorities for permission or without any real concern for consequences beyond the message of resistance and necessary disobedience.

To judge from radio commercials for Tax Resolution Services (CLICK LINK HERE)a number of people have wandered off the 1040 Income Tax reservation without regret or apology. Even at the low, low, settlement price of a 10 or 20 percent payout, people cannot be persuaded to come back to the mother ship and sign ZEE PAPER!

It is a somewhat mixed message. On one hand enough people have quit filing to the point where very expensive commercials try to persuade them to come clean and on the other hand all the commercials in the world hardly seem to dent the outcome.

So how about it? Will the person you see in the mirror every day find something, anything to just say NO?

Will you burn your 1040 form?

Will you remove the license plate from your car?

Will you refuse to renew your drivers license?

Will you leave the little checkbox for race on some obnoxious form empty?

Will you refuse to volunteer your Social Security number just because some file clerk demands it?

Will you light a cigarette in a NO Smoking zone even if you do not smoke?

For Heaven’s sake just drive around the parking lot without your seatbelt fastened!

Anything to break the hypnotic trance of tyranny which suffocates us all!

Surely you can find some element of resistance to let the world know you have cast off the cloak of sheeplehood.

Do not ask me what I think. Do not ask me what I intend to do. YOU decide. All by yourself.

Remember the repeal of 1,000,000 statutes begins with a single dissident act.

When will you begin your march?

Really, it’s for the children…….

Nick Vujicic, Genuine Tough Guy

Would that Chuck Norris be so lucky to be as tough as this guy.

Even if you are a minority within a minority of a minority, you can take lessons from a guy who is literally in a class by himself.

As the venerable Colonel Jeff Cooper observed: “Humans use their minds to fight, weapons are just accessories.”

Every day of his life Nick Vujicic has used his mind to fight.

Never say never again!

When Wheelchairs Attack!

The way NC Gun Guy tells it, you are more likely to get maimed or injured by rampaging wheelchairs on the sidewalk than by the average garden variety mugger or thug! We report, you decide…..

Tantalizing Excerpt:
In just a few short years Raleigh NC has been invaded by a population of nitwits on bicycles, skateboards, motorized wheelchairs and even roller skates!

With total disregard for law, safety or ordinary common sense these knuckleheads ply the roads and sidewalks of the city and leave a trail of chaos in their wake wherever they go.

Mr.Spock Says Nuke The Arctic Icecaps!

Yee Haw!!!! …….. It’s on Youtube! ………. It’s on Youtube!

For YEARS I reminisced to skeptical associates about “IN SEARCH OF” –The LOST Episode!!

No less than Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock to you Trekkies) hosted a documentary style TeeVee show which featured a wide variety of strange topics back in the late 1970s/early 1980s.

With subjects that ranged from UFO’s to secret Ancient Egyptian technology the shows were a wacky mixture of fringe theory gossip and slick propaganda.

Arguably the slickest of slick propaganda dealt with….. (are you safely seated??) …. The Coming Ice Age!

Yes! Long before Al Gore, Leonard Nimoy was deeply enamored with climate change mythology, BUT from the Global Cooling Side of the Equation!

Frankly, Al Gore could take some lessons from a professional!

The Coming Ice Age begins on a hysterical note (complete with ominous bassoon in the opening tease) and escalates into pure panic in just twenty minutes (of broadcast time)!

After We, the Audience, have been lectured about perpetual snow in Mississippi, the collapse of food production in the San Joaquin Valley, the loss of grazing land in the mid-west; total crop loss in Kansas, Indiana and Idaho, and chiiiiildren freezing to death alone, hungry and in the dark….. the prospect of nuking the Arctic to melt ice caps seems down right reasonable!

And if that does not work, it might still be possible to spread black soot over large tracts of ice so the sun will melt it for us!

It is all very scientific, dontcha know!!

Really! A 20th Century Classic! Must-see TEEVEE!

North Carolina State University Rifle Team

Yes, there really are college level Rifle Teams! Yes, they really do offer college athletic scholarships!
Perhaps the day will come when it will be possible to watch them compete on the 2nd Amendment channel. (right next to the golf channel!)

Tantalizing excerpt:

Raleigh, N.C. — Deep inside the basement of Reynolds Coliseum, North Carolina State student-athletes are working on their shooting – rifle shooting.

NC State has the only fully-sanctioned, scholarship-level rifle-shooting team in the ACC. They are also fully coed with men and women competing against each other on a truly level playing field.

“If you look at the NCAA Championships, you’ll see roughly half men, half women,” said head coach Keith Miller. “Two years ago, TCU won the championship with an all-women’s team. First time that had ever happened.”

They may be the best team in the ACC no one has ever heard of – even on their own campus.

The Duty To Assist

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:

Excerpt:

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.”
