Second Amendment Bits And Pieces Sporadic Updates Edition

It’s been a busy couple of weeks in the world of Second Amendment Radicalism And Armed Citizen Adventures. From the tragedy in Nashville that was thankfully cut short by law enforcement officers who know a thing or two - yes they still exist - to the signing into law of Florida’s much-debated and much-awaited Permitless Carry law, it’s been a pretty exciting couple of weeks out there.

And to top it all off, it seems the ever-unpredictable President Donald John Trump has been indicted on a whole litany of administrative charges, ushering in a new era of petty political warfare. Well, if they’re too busy indicting each other and arresting each other, they can’t cause problems for the people. I’ll take a deadlock any day of the week. But that’s beyond the scope of this blog.

But without further ado…

Is Florida Really The Gunshine State?

Florida has a robust firearms culture.

As has been recently discussed, there’s a very good chance that the great State of Florida will get some form of permitless firearms carry signed into law in the current legislative session. As of this writing, the Florida House has passed the permitless carry bill. We now wait for the Florida Senate. Of course, since Florida was and may still be an electoral battleground state, the usual histrionics from the harridans has ensued. Much like it did in 1987 when Florida became the first major state to institute a shall-issue concealed weapons permit scheme, the mainstream media is predicting the state will be knee-deep in blood, the Wild West, and that sort of thing.

Interestingly enough, the 1987 adoption of a statewide and state-managed shall-issue permit scheme is what led to Florida getting the moniker The Gunshine State

No Guns On Campus? Hah!

As of February 23rd, 2023, West Virginia’s SB 10, a bill removing restrictions on the carry of firearms on public university campuses in the state, has cleared the final hurdle in the West Virginia legislature. Governor Jim Justice (what a name!) has promised to sign the bill into law when it gets to his desk on March 1st, 2023. While there was some performative whining and kicking from some students at West Virginia and Marshall Universities, the campus carry bill has by and large seen little opposition amongst the population and their duly elected lawmakers…

Permitless Carry Bill Introduced In Florida

On the morning of Monday, January 30th, 2023, Speaker of the Florida House Paul Renner (R-Palm Court) introduced the latest attempt at Constitutional Carry (aka Permitless Carry) in the State of Florida. Known as HB 543 in legislative circles, the bill will remove the need for Floridians to obtain a Concealed Weapon Or Firearm License before carrying a concealed handgun in public. In his opening remarks, Renner stated that the bill gets “rid of the need for a government permission slip” to carry a concealed handgun in the State of Florida.

At first glance, this does seem to be what Floridians have been waiting for with baited breath for decades. With one of the only “red waves” being in the Sunshine State, Florida is primed for a Constitutional Carry bill to pass. Governor DeSantis has promised to sign if one reaches his desk, even. But, the devil is in the details…

The ATF Pistol Brace Rule Has Been Revealed

An SB Tactical arm brace attached to an AR-15.

After many false starts and delays, this past Friday, January 13th, the much-debated, maligned, and promised firearm pistol brace ruling from the regime of Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr was revealed to the nation. With the usual excuse of “public safety”, ATF director and noted bullfrog Steve Dettelbach announced this travesty. While drafts of the ruling circulated for months prior, few had any insight as to what the final contents of ATF Rule 2021R-08F would be.

To put it mildly, this isn’t a slow-pitch softball like the so-called “ghost gun” ruling was, it’s a full-on assault and exploitation of the firearms community in the US…

Someone Owning A Gun Doesn't Necessarily Mean They Support The Second Amendment

Things Fudds hate - suppressors, ARs, and drum magazines...

Yes, we’ve been down this road before. There’s always room for exposition and nuance though. Certainly, the existence of gun control and gun control supporters is a clear and present danger to free people and those who desire to be free. Whether it’s domestic enemies like Shannon Watts and Eric Swalwell or strange foreign smallfolk like Justin from Canada, those who seek to disarm others by the proxy of State violence are amongst the most vile people out there. That being said, what’s worse is the troubling sort that strike a pose like there’s nothing to it, purchase a firearm, and then openly advocate for more gun control. Whether it’s the Fudd down the street who shoots less than 100 rounds a year, or a panicky hypocrite who bought an AR15 during the recent unpleasantness, those in the fifth column near us Second Amendment Radicals are a troubling faction to say the least. They purchased a firearm, but they clearly do not support the Second Amendment

There Is A Gun Rights Organization For You

The Second Amendment acknowledges your inherent right to keep and bear arms

Despite the noise and outright lies from the mainstream media, firearms ownership in our nation has been consistently on the rise. While concrete numbers are (thankfully) hard to discern, the simple fact is that more and more people are joining the ranks of Second Amendmment Radicals and armed citizens. And it’s not just the stereotypical old fat white guy aka the OFWG anymore. Though to be fair the OFWG is maybe shoring up his stash of 5.56mm ammunition and maybe investing in another AR-15 or even an AK-style rifle.

The newest members of our raucuous and fun family are demographics typically not associated with firearms ownership. Women, black folk, LGBT people and so on. And beyond immutable characteristics, there’s a noted uptick of firearms ownership in ideological demographics not normally ascribed to supporting the Second Amendment. Yes, progressives, liberals, and even socialists are picking up guns for defense of self and community…

The Armed Citizen Response To The Greenwood Park Mall Shooting

After the fight is over, another fight begins...

At approximately 5:56 PM on July 17th, 2022, a deeply flawed and defective young person opened fire with a rifle at the Greenwood Park Mall in Greenwood, Indiana. While the attacker did accrue casualties, he himself was nearly immediately neutralized by 22-year-old Elisjsha Dicken, an armed citizen, who was at the mall shopping with his girlfriend. With his GLOCK pistol, Dicken engaged the attacker at an initial distance of 40 yards, successfully hitting him with 8 out of 10 shots fired.

Dicken’s actions prove that once again, a gun in the hand is better than a welfare queen government employee on the phone, if they even bother to answer or show up at all…

Michael Moore Wants To Repeal The Second Amendment

Being armed means you don't have to do what cretins like Michael Moore say.

In the wake of some tragic media-amplified events, the usual round of regime-approved stooges have been (again) making their thoughts on firearms confiscation known. Of course, it’s the standard talking points. “Ban Assault Weapons” (whatever those are), “Register Firearms”, “Close the XYZ Loophole”, that sort of thing. They have a cheatsheet, and they fall back on it as a matter of rote. Whether it’s out of conviction or just job security, the stooges do stoogelike things for the shot-callers in the regime. Of course, they themselves are armed, or have hired golems close at hand. But god forbid you want an AR-15. Apparently so-called “weapons of war” don’t have a place in citizen hands, despite the fact that the Second Amendment by the book guarantees us the right to have real weapons of war, i.e. an M4A1.

Some of the more wily stooges know this, and thus, they campaign for the jugular - the repeal of the Second Amendment. Along those lines, noted gravitational distortion and champion eater Michael Moore has published a screed calling for just that, the repeal of the Second Amendment. To be fair, this would be the correct procedure to enact gun control, but people like Mikey fail to understand the process and the consequences…
