Category Archives: self defense


skullI’m too busy today to actually blog properly, so I will direct you to my buddy Lawrence.

Lawrence is a lot of fun. He makes the best ass jokes of anyone I know. He and I think very much alike, although he tends not to curse as much as I do. He makes up for it with fart stories, though, so it’s OK.

Anyway, Lawrence has written a piece I consider wonderfully thoughtful, considering the topic is what he accurately calls “anti-think.” Here’s an excerpt.

Anti-Think hijacks ordinary thought processes and twists them in the opposing direction. Let us say a good and proper French Feminist is walking home late at night and she suddenly realizes her course has taken her a little too close to an Islamic ghetto. Think would cause her to change course away from the potential danger. Not-Think would cause her to ignore the thought and proceed on her present course, heedless of the consequences. Anti-Think would whisper in her ear and tell her that her fear is bigotry. So to prove to herself and the world what a good Feminist she is, she intentionally steers into the ghetto. Then, if raped or mugged, she might act as one woman raped in Haiti did and blame white people for it.

Anti-Think convinces these people that the greatest threat to, say, women’s rights is white males living in the United States. While, of course, bastions of Islamic fundamentalism are excused, and even celebrated as ‘liberating’ for women. Because wearing a massive black bag in the middle of the scorching heat is what freedom looks like. Whatever a sensible conclusion is, the Anti-Thinker will reliably choose the opposite view. “It can’t be the fault of the person who raped me,” says the Anti-Thinker, “the patriarchal conspiracy in a completely different country made this man to attack me.”

Do yourselves a favor, and give the rest a read. Well worth it.

To my LGBT friends and readers 

In the aftermath of yesterday’s horror in Orlando, I have a message for you. I posted this on my Facebook page, and I’m posting it here as well. 

ABSOLUTELY. Props to the late Ray Carter, who designed it as the logo for CeaseFear, the Seattle PP chapter.

To my LGBT friends – I know you still face prejudice, bigotry, hatred, and ignorance even in this day and age. I know many of you are still afraid to walk down the street with your partner holding hands and are still apprehensive about entering a public bathroom for fear of becoming a victim. I know many of you still face physical threats. 

I just want you to know I want you to be safe. I want you well-defended. I want you to have the tools and skills to protect yourselves. 

If you are in the VA/DC/MD area and want a partner with whom to go to the range, just ask. I’ll not only go with you, I’ll pay for your range time! I’ll go with you if you want to purchase a gun for self defense. I’ll help you learn how to use it safely and properly. I’ll help you get your CCW. 

I never want to see my friends trapped unarmed and terrified in a situation like the one in Orlando, begging for their lives and saying “goodbye” to their loved ones while waiting to die. I want you to have the tools to at least fight back against the prejudice and hate you face. I want you to live to see hatred and bigotry eradicated from this world. J want you to have a chance.
I want you to live. I love you all.

Self defense in the nation’s capital

story.dc.metroWe all know that it’s nearly impossible to carry a firearm for self defense in Washington, DC. We’ve covered that issue numerous times here, as well as the elitism and hypocrisy in the treatment of folks who unintentionally violate the city’s despicable, freedom-quashing gun control laws. This is not news.

What is news, however, is that the criminal savages in DC are getting bolder. There has been a rash of attacks in the city’s metro stations lately.

A couple was assaulted a couple of days ago for no reason in the Pentagon metro station.

Some teenagers were beaten on New Year’s day.

Another group of savages attacked a lone man in December – six of them vs. one of him.

A reporter was attacked by a roving band of females.

A man was stabbed to death on July 4 last year. And neither in this case nor in the one above did anyone lift a finger to help.

A gay couple was attacked.

A 69 year old man.

And yet, DC residents cannot defend neither themselves no others with the most effective tool on the market today – a firearm. Because as soon as the train enters the city, that concealed carry permit you have is just another worthless piece of paper. And in DC, the thugs know it. Not that I believe these punks are smart enough to deduce anything about the capital’s gun control laws and link them to defenseless victims. But I do believe they see themselves as untouchable, given the fact that passengers are too scared or too defenseless to do anything about them.

Enough is enough!

I’m not a big, brawny person, but I’m also no slouch in the self defense department. I commute into the city every single day, and I have made a personal commitment to fight with everything I have to help both my fellow passengers and myself, if the need arises.

It’s no secret that we are all disarmed, but frankly, a handful of teenage punks doesn’t stand a chance against the slew of passengers I see every day on those metro platforms.

So yes, I will beat anyone trying to victimize a fellow passenger to a bloody pulp. I will make sure they don’t get up again. And if I have to, I’ll toss one onto the tracks. I carry in Virginia, but if DC is going to insist on disarming me, I will make sure – one way or another – that at least one of the cretinous fuckbags winds up in the hospital or in the morgue.

It’s time to stop allowing these shitstick thugs rule the public transportation system here in the city, and I would hope that the rest of my fellow passengers are as fed up as I am.

If the city wants to prosecute us for taking the steps to protect ourselves – something the police here have not been able to do – so be it.

But these delinquents won’t stop until we stop them, so it’s about damn time we at least tried.

Glock Trumps Brick

The Detroit News reports that some loon tried to attack a pastor at a Sunday service with a brick.

“Tried” is the operative word.

Violence marred a church service Sunday when a man with a brick attacked the pastor, who whipped out his Glock handgun and fired several shots, killing the man, Detroit police said.

The pastor has apparently had issues with the brick-wielding derelict before, and the assailant has previously threatened the pastor with physical harm.

But guns don’t save lives, right?

Guns in churches are a bad idea, right?

Guns just make a bad situation worse, right?

The racist prick who attacked a church in Charleston, SC didn’t choose his target because of any lack of security, right?

“I don’t think the church was his primary target because he told us he was going for the school,” Scriven said Friday. “But I think he couldn’t get into the school because of the security … so I think he just settled for the church.”

It’s unfortunate that Reverend Clementa Pinckney, who was one of the victims of the killer’s racist attack, voted against allowing firearms in churches and other venues  as a member of the South Carolina State Senate.

This isn’t the only time a gun in church stopped an attack. Maybe things would have been different if someone – ANYONE – had a way to defend the congregation in Charleston.

They would have at least had a chance.

Thanks bunches, vagina voters!

Those of you alleged libertarians who went out and actively spread filth about Ken Cuccinelli during the last Virginia gubernatorial election because of the hysterical “OMG Cuccinelli wants to control my vagina!” meme gave us the corrupt scumbag Terry McAuliffe – I hope you’re happy. I know libertarians are supposed to give a shit about gun rights, so I hope they’re thrilled with McAuliffe’s efforts to destroy the Second Amendment in Virginia.

McAuliffe’s gun initiatives include proposals to:

  • Prohibit the possession of firearms by people subject to protective orders

  • Prohibit the possession of firearms by misdemeanor domestic violence offenders

  • Reinstate the one-handgun-a-month law

  • Revoke concealed-handgun permits for parents delinquent on child support payments

  • Close the “gun show loophole”

The Lautenberg Amendment already prohibits possession, transport, ownership, etc. of firearms by domestic abusers and those subject to a restraining order. And guess what! Any dillhole willing to beat up another person just because his nuts may itch that day will not be stopped by a piece of paper when it comes to purchasing a gun.

The unconstitutional, morally repugnant, and unnecessary one-handgun-a-month law was repealed in Virginia in 2012. Not only did Virginia not see an increase in gun-related crime after the repeal of this monstrosity, but these crimes actually had been on the decrease for a few years before the law was repealed, and continues to drop today.

Then McAuliffe wants to just cancel the Second Amendment rights of parents who are delinquent on child support payments. Now, having dealt with that situation, it’s revolting when a parent won’t support their children. But does that make said parent violent or dangerous? Will depriving them of their natural rights somehow reduce violence? The parent is broke, not violent, ferpetessake! So this is just another little chip off your gun rights.

And then there’s that nonexistent “gun show loophole.” It always boggles my mind when I see progtards drool that old meme. If there was indeed a gun show loophole through which criminals can easily purchase guns, wouldn’t they be purchasing said guns there in droves? Instead less than 1 percent of guns used in crimes were purchased at gun shows. Yeah, there’s a loophole. It’s called the black market, and it’s basic economics, which McAuliffe doesn’t seem to understand. The more you limit legal purchases of firearms and make the exercise of natural rights more onerous, the more people will simply purchase guns off the books. There’s a demand. There will always be a supply. I guess the War on Drugs taught him nothing.

But yes. The vagina voters from all over Virginia gave us McAuliffe. Corrupt, statist, arrogant, hypocritical McAuliffe, and now he’s going after the natural rights of Virginians.

Thanks, vagina voters. Thanks a pantsload. Enjoy your unregulated vaginas, because pretty soon, if T-Mac and crew have their way, you won’t be able to defend them with anything more than a back scratcher.

Let’s hope the Virginia GOP grows some testicles and ensures that Terry’s proposals swirl the drain with the rest of the turds.
