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!

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

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.


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


Prison Cell Concealed Carry

Thank Heaven it was only a .38 Special!

If it was a serious gun like Rick Perry’s Ruger .380, (CLICK HERE)someone might have gotten hurt!


Tantalizing Excerpt:

Jailers later discovered a .38 caliber, six-inch barrel revolver in the cell. It is believed that Ward hid the weapon in his rectum.

On Friday Ward will be taken to Onslow Memorial Hospital for possible injuries that may have occurred to Ward’s rectum.

Police say the gun was not loaded, but it was in operational condition.

Texas Tall Tale (With Dynamite!)

There was a time I would have taken this type of story with a grain of salt.

But then my buddies brother went up into the mountains to excavate a basement under his wife’s cabin retreat.

Yes, it did involve dynamite. Yes, hijinks ensued.

Seems when some people get around dynamite the crazy switch goes on in their brain.

So if this story is not exactly true, it should be, and it probably resembles something that actually happened.

Cops Shoot Cow


Good Grief! Tired of shooting dogs as they cower in their crates, Police have a new hobby –shooting cows with their issue sidearms.

Is it possible to humanely take down a 1500 pound cow with a Glock 40?

Maybe, with a precision shot to break the spine near the shoulder followed with a shot through the center of the head. Not exactly what this Cop did or tried to do! Sheesh!


A YouTube video of Gatineau police opening fire on an escaped cow has raised questions about their treatment of the animals.

Gatineau police said two cows were headed for the slaughterhouse when they broke free from a truck Thursday, leaving them no choice but to shoot them dead.

Chancellor Little Lord Fauntleroy Holden Thorp

2nd Amendment Blogs and message boards should be the primary source for everything anyone needs to know about anything. That is my story and I will stick to it!

Nearly two years ago here at John Jacob H RKBA Commentary we warned the public about the inept Chancellor Little Lord Fauntleroy Holden Thorp after his dismal defense of free speech in the matter of Professor Emeritus Elliot Cramer comments about necessary self defense.


Even before that particular contretemps Michelle Malkin expressed her concern about the level of adult supervision at the University Of Berserkley–Chapel Hill Division.


This time the good Chancellor Lord Fauntleroy Thorp has tangled with the taxpayer funded National Football League Farm Team Association, euphemistically known as collegiate sports (NCAA).

Call me crazy, but THIS TIME Chancellor Thorp’s kerfuffle may leave a mark. It is considered bad form for a chancellor to mess with professional football farm teams.

You were warned. Two years ago. Really.


Tantalizing Excerpt:

Many North Carolina fans wanted to know why the university fired head coach Butch Davis just nine days before fall practice began. Now, a group of UNC football supporters are looking into legal action against UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp and the university, according to Robbi Pickeral of the Raleigh News & Observer.

“I can tell you, everybody that we represent is furious about the timing of Butch Davis’ firing,” Brown & Associates attorney Don Brown told the News & Observer on Monday. “They feel like their investment was based on Butch Davis being the head coach … and the public reassurances over the past year that he would remain the coach. … They want answers.”
A group of UNC football donors are considering bringing a lawsuit against university chancellor Holden Thorp after his decision to fire head football coach Butch Davis.

Societal Singularity–Anders Behring Breivik


Sin·gu·lar·i·ty: a point or region of infinite mass density at which space and time are infinitely distorted by gravitational forces and held to be the final state of matter as it falls into a black hole

Long ago and far away I had an opportunity to talk to an old man, a survivor of WWII and
a member of the Axis Conscript Army from one of those little roll over countries of Eastern Europe – you know, Poland, Romania, Hungary

I asked him what he made of his experience in the 20th Century?

He answered in one word: “Amazement”.

To clarify he said: “One day you wake up and believe you will do pretty much what you have always done the way you have always done it. On that day you learn you will never again do any of the things you have always done in any of the ways you have always done them.”

The phrase did not exist when he spoke of his experience in World War Twice, but he clearly described the reality of SOCIETAL SINGULARITY- the change, in an instant, from a world you comprehend perfectly to a world unrecognizable in every aspect.
