To the “Gang” at JPFO: November 22, 2012

Posted by Administrator in : Politics , trackback

When I opened my e-mail this morning (yes, even on Thanksgiving Day), I came across a message from Ammoland.com, a site I generally find interesting. But this particular morning, I was surprised and delighted to find the following contribution from my very own favorite pro-gun organization, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.

I’ve been associated with this organization, founded by my friend, the late Aaron Zelman, for at least 15 years, and this, in my opinion, is the best outreach effort I’ve seen the group mount.The hypocrisy of Hollywood is there for anyone to see and despise. Indeed I first wrote about it when the viciously anti-gun Australian actor Rod Taylor was filmed fighting a duel with football player turned actor Jim Brown, using _chainsaws_.

I don’t know which of my friends and associates at JPFO pulled this off, but it’s just the thing we need to kick off a year that will see the dirtiest and most frantic attempts ever to rob us of our fundamental human right to own and carry weapons.


Thanks, friends!

Having just seen “Skyfall”, I agree with you. So-called smart guns have been around for quite awhile.

Happy Thanksgiving, Neil! Remamber that the Pilgrims celebrated T-G only AFTER they ditched their solialist pact, and finally had enough food.

Actually, the chainsaw fight in *Dark of the Sun* (1968) was between characters portrayed by Taylor and actor Peter Carsten. It was broken up by the Jim Brown’s character.

Best use of “smart guns” was in the Ted Quantrill series by Dean Ing. If the wrong person tried to fire the gun the trigger broke their finger. Meant for use by special agents, government hitmen in a post Apocalypse America.
Government hit men and a President who reserves the right to put the whack on whoever he pleases. a crazy Heretic Mormon if I remember right. I thought the other guy won the election.

If I have a choice (and as far as I can see, I do, since it’s my wallet), I’ll never own a gun with an electronic safety or triggering mechanism, or a key lock safety. A gun you can’t use because of a dead battery or misplaced key (or because, under stress, you can’t manage to dial a combination you remember perfectly) is worse than useless; it makes you waste time you could have spent getting to or improvising a usable weapon.

I rather like the safety on my Mosin Nagant 91/30 rifle: pull back the cocking piece and turn about 45ยบ counterclockwise, then let down. The cocking piece (and attached firing pin) is then blocked *by the receiver wall*, and in the process both trigger and bolt are locked. The only down side is I have to release the safety to unload the rifle, but that’s not a big problem…

A working brain may not be available to minions of the state. Gun locks are desirable and useful if and only if you are in a situation where unauthorized persons have access to your weapons.
