Dial 9-1-1 and Die

How many times have we heard the gun grabber “If you’re in trouble, just call 9-1-1” screed?

How many times have you been told “You don’t need a gun. The police are there to protect you” from the anti-rights crowd?

So what if you call 9-1-1 and get this fetid bag of cunt drippings?

A 911 operator is accused of hanging up on people calling for help.

Investigators say that Crenshanda Williams had thousands of “short calls”, lasting less than 20 seconds.

In one call, a security guard reported drivers drag racing. Moments later, investigators say that Williams hung up. The recording captures her saying “aint’ nobody got time for this. For real.”

Williams reportedly told investigators she often hangs up on callers because she didn’t feel like talking with anyone at the time.

According to this report, at least one of the emergency calls she hung up on resulted in the shooting of an innocent woman during a convenience store robbery.

911-secondsMost of the 9-1-1 failures are not that egregious, but the problem is they do exist. I would submit that most 9-1-1 dispatchers are not disgusting pieces of detritus like this one, but dedicated professionals. But no one can deny there is a wait time for police action, and in that time, a violent criminal can fire multiple shots or fatally stab their victim, even if the police get there in minutes! These stories are heartbreaking.

Lives are forever changed or snuffed out, while victims wait for help that at best can arrive within several minutes and at worst in hours. What is it that gun grabbers always say? “If it helps save one life…”

So if it helps save one life, why should anyone be forced to rely on others to defend them?

I also realize that there are cretinous ass drippings who do call 9-1-1 because they can’t reach their pizza, or their boyfriend failed to give them oral, and while any system can be abused, there’s no excuse – NONE – for hanging up on an emergency call, because you don’t feel like talking or think it’s not worth your precious time – for which taxpayers pay you, bitch!

But back to my original point.

Next time some gun grabber tells you to just call 9-1-1 and wait for the police to arrive, just remember: You don’t have to rely on others – be it corrupt 9-1-1 dispatchers or slow police responders – for your life.  You have the right to defend yourself with the most effective tools available.

Act like your life depends on it, because it does. Because it really does.


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.
