Okay. I think it’s about time we start the outlaw offensive.

“Lefty Cesspool Blog Gawker Calls Gun Owners ‘Assholes,’ Publishes Names Of Everyone Who Owns A Gun In NYC…”

Leaving aside the fact that Gawker has now told those criminals interested in obtaining a fire arm which law-abiding citizen’s house to target for theft — while they’ve simultaneously told burglars or rapists which homes and citizens in NY are softer targets — let’s for the sake of argument just go with it:  Fine. Okay. Gun owners are assholes.

Let’s embrace that description. Learn to love it! Make it our very own!  Because though we may be assholes, we’re armed assholes.  Which is the best kind to be, I suspect..

And, so as to solidify that well-deserved reputation, we should begin taking affirmative steps to really showcase our assholery.   Publishing an interactive map of all Gawker employees with a mouse-over that reads, “Not an asshole:  this home protected by smug, sneering self-righteousness, and maybe a wine key,” is a good start.  But it isn’t enough.

The left seeks to de-humanize us.  And that’s preparatory.  History provides the referents.  We can no longer stand by and let ourselves be shamed.

Place your suggestions for how best to return the favor here.

  1. Clearly, a “fighting fire with fire” approach is warranted, specifically with regard to the recent doxxings. But that’s only a minimum.

    Trouble is, further escalation treads the boundary between legal and illegal; the last thing anyone should be doing is providing the Powers That Be an excuse to exercise police powers.

  2. publish names, home addresses, work addresses, and armed status regarding every person who works at gawker. maybe even their work schedule.

    for academic purposes, of course.

  3. theoretically breaking down their front door while they are at work and inviting the homeless in for a nice squat.

  4. gaa – they’re stupid over there.

  5. Pursuant your post below, pursuant my comment earlier that these assholes are violating their oaths, the answer is to forever demand their removal from office, and beyond that, to seek prosecution for betraying it, the Constitution, and the constituent.

    I am beyond fed up debating this shit on the terms well understood and dispensed with as an agreed condition of creating the contract nearly 250 years ago that grants you and I the right to do exactly what you wrote.

    Which is:

    Again: the militia is defined in the USC and many state constitutions. And between the “ready militia” and the “reserve militia” it subsumes all the citizenry, including children. That is, the people. Whose right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. As it says right there in the text.

    Nowhere is the text is there any mention of what one needs to hunt with. Although allow me to put this bluntly: the subtext of the amendment, insofar as it deals with hunting at all, is referring to the ability to put down oppressive rulers. Would-be tyrants who by force may try to subjugate free citizens.

    The conversation is over. Get the fuck out of office, and if you are not in office, you are not worth a second of my time. I will boycott your press and I will boycott you. I will treat you with scorn as the thief and coward you are. You are not fit for my company or my country and you are urgently invited to get out.

  6. I say we go nucular. Simply publish the names and address of all non gun-owners in a given area and label them “Weapon-Free Heroic Gun Free Zones” or something. Make out like it’s praise.

    But, at the very least we could do so for absolutely every member of the MSM.

  7. And, so as to solidify that well-deserved reputation, we should begin taking affirmative steps to really showcase our assholery. Publishing an interactive map of all Gawker employees with a mouse-over that reads,

    And so it begins. As does the mewling, which is quickly dispatched.

    While I understand the concerns of permit holders, I’d be more pissed about not being listed. This really is a “People You Probably Ought Not Fuck With” list.

  8. That may take care of itself, at least in the Urinal-News, Gawker cases.

    Seems they’ve outed a NY judge, who is mightily displeased.

  9. Americans, in general terms — for the generations now living — have not had need of a serious means of robust, speedy, covert communications employed in self-defense against whatever quarter. Certainly arms are needful in self-defense, yet, as Gulermo says his dad pointed out to him, our most dangerous weapon as human beings is our brain.

    So, our brains are the means by which we organize ourselves, both for self-defense purposes and for offensive purposes within any self-defense necessarily undertaken, and in organization we must communicate, sometimes under situations of dire urgency, yet without revealing those communications to the entities against which we fight. Firepower is necessary, in other words, but if that firepower isn’t marshaled to the right time and place, it may prove of little use at all in a given instance.

    I’m beginning to wonder whether we’re sufficiently prepared to think through the means we may be forced to obtain.

  10. Seems they’ve outed a NY judge, who is mightily displeased.

    Former prosecutor and judge Jeanine Pirro is livid. Is there an active judge? How many active judges are listed?

  11. Let’s tweet everything Google-able about John Cook!

  12. I am thinking the higher ups at Gawker need to have names, addresses, photos, description of autos, plates, anything publicly available or observable printed, published, tweeted, fb’d, put on flyers and stapled on telephone poles outside Section 8 housing, etc.

    Prominently remark that they are firearm free.

  13. Once again, threatening people who you know to be armed doesn’t seem like a smart move.

  14. Well, just to preempt any collectivist trash that may (will) make it that ALL gun owners are murderers and evil, let me say this. Should John Cook fall victim to his own assholishness by being murdered in any way, especially via the use of a gun, by somebody offended by John Cook’s asshollihsness, that would be a very bad thing and it was not deserved. Ok. Now, with that out of the way. Wow, John Cook is an asshole. Seriously.

  15. Lets publish a list of everyone who doesn’t own a gun or isn’t registered for a permit and lives in NYC. Names and addresses and phone numbers.

  16. Well? they can’t ID me, due to the unfortunate canoe/Nessie accident. I do believe we should out any employee of Gawker down to the illegal alien cleaning service. Won’t do any good, but it would be fun to see them squirm.

    And any thing that may not misbecome

  18. You left off the “boy”, Charles.

    It’s important.

  19. Firepower is necessary, in other words, but if that firepower isn’t marshaled to the right time and place, it may prove of little use at all in a given instance.

    I’m beginning to wonder whether we’re sufficiently prepared to think through the means we may be forced to obtain.

    This is important, something I touched on days ago when I asked “what will you do?” when they show up at your door demanding your weapons.

    It’s all fine and good to say you lost them, but after hearing it a million times they might grow skeptical.

    I’m thinking, in the spirit of the 2nd amendment, gun owners in their own states need to start organizing militias, under leadership allied with the various Sheriffs Departments. Now, not when they start knocking…

  20. Last week our AG publicly stated that we do not now require registration and we will never require registration of firearms. We also have open carry.

    Y’all need to move down here where it’s civilized

  21. Sdferr is right: we have to establish reliable means of communication.

    How do we do this. Ham Radio? Citizen’s Band Radio? Other types? I don’t know what to suggest yet, but maybe some of you all do.

    I don’t see the Internet as being a go-to method for the long term.

  22. It isn’t clear that any of our current means, barring very good encryption (and even then I wouldn’t know how to vet the efficacy of such things) are at all useful when the push comes to shove. The thing is, any serious resistance must be prepared in advance (in advance of what! and when! — well, that too is part of the problem), which simply means doing the thinking about it now.

  23. Sdferr is right: we have to establish reliable means of communication.

    How do we do this. Ham Radio? Citizen’s Band Radio? Other types?

    Look on Amazon. You can get a mini Ham radio for $40. I also picked up some Motorola walkie talkies, and then there’s one-channel walkies that are private.

  24. we could make fondue chocolate sauce and we could all have tasty fresh cut granny smith apples to fondue and let the prissy bloomberg whores have icky brown slimy apple pieces to fondue and when they complain we can say fuck off, assholes why don’t you go piss your fucking pants cause someone has a gun or something

  25. Best comment from that Weasel Zippers link:

    “I own guns because fuck you.”

    Just found my new motto.

  26. Once again, threatening people who you know to be armed doesn’t seem like a smart move.

    This. As I pointed out a while back (to Yelvie, IIRC), if they actually believed any of their BS that we’re a bunch of crazy kill-bots who just live to shoot someone, why in God’s name would they deliberately provoke us when we know where they live and work?

    They’re either liars, terminally stupid, or both.

  27. This is important, something I touched on days ago when I asked “what will you do?” when they show up at your door demanding your weapons.

    The real question isn’t what will you do when they show up at your door, but when they show up at your neighbor’s. We’re going to lose some people when they first kick this off, especially in blue-dominated areas, but are you then willing to go after not only the minions who came to your neighbor’s door, but the politicians and bureaucrats who sent them once you know they are moving. Or before.

  28. You can get a mini Ham radio for $40.

    Then you would need either (1) a ham radio license to operate legally, or (b) to wait until the collapse to operate illegally. If you’re a licensed ham your address is public record.

    Licensed hams self-police, and are on very good terms with OOs (official observers) when they detect unlicensed operators.

  29. -Thanks, Jeff for the suggestions.

    My main concern is for long-distance communications [beyond, say, ten or twenty miles] since we are scattered across the fruited plain.

    -McGehee: Of course, we would have to be unregistered ham radio operators. We’ve got to make it as hard as possible to know who we are and find us. That’s why I was wondering if there was a way to maintain communications when the government starts jamming [in more ways than one].

  30. Then you would need either (1) a ham radio license to operate legally, or (b) to wait until the collapse to operate illegally.

    I didn’t buy it to use it now.

  31. One problem with using radio is that the bands are finite, and after a collapse they’d be wide open and probably congested with unlicensed users.

    You’d need to set up an illicit traffic-handling system like the legit hobby has, and try to limit the passing of coded messages to short-range bands as they’re harder to monitor on a large scale.

    Use codes instead of encryption because ciphers on open radio are a big red flag to anyone listening; regular language that means something innocuous to casual eavesdroppers but something specific to sender and intended recipient, is more likely to succeed.

    Hypothetically speaking, of course.

  32. You’d want to avoid the legitimate traffic handling system because licensed hams keep records of traffic they pass.

  33. The idea of code phrases appeals and it did work in the ETO during WWII.
