I’m all for this Gun Appreciation Day on January 19

But frankly, I’d rather seeing something like A Million Firearms March.  On heavily gun-controlled DC.  With the text of the Second Amendment plastered to placards and worn on t-shirts.

The nation can watch live on TV its mainstream national media and their cabal of leftist academic “experts” demonize the gun-fetishizing fringe extremists to set the rationale for its government turning a million erstwhile law-abiding citizens with natural and Constitutional rights into instant felons, all because they don’t have the same connections or agenda as, say, a David Gregory.

If nothing else, it would be clarifying.

Think Obama would call up the National Guard?  Set up check points and car searches around the city’s perimeters to prevent a massive redress of government by citizens demanding their rights be respected?

After all, it’s only a civil rights march if what you’re after comports with the left’s progressive agenda.  Anything else is a racist insurrection, and can be quelled by extra-Constitutional measures.  Like warrantless searches based on out-of-state plates on a car, for instance.

– at which point, if such a thing happens, I counsel you to declare yourself an illegal.  Then the po-po can’t touch you.

    I suspect fire hoses.

    You know, historical karma and all…

  2. Schumer Asks Gun Retailers To Stop Selling Guns While Congress Works On Legislation

    I’ll agree with Sen Schumer if, in kind, he stops breathing until we can get a handle on Climate Change.

  3. It’s love a million high-capacity magazine march – the kind that David Gregory brandished on MTP, so that the marchers could not be accused of pointing guns at the police. Would be interesting to see what type of “prosecutorial discretion” the DC DA would apply to the marchers vs. his friend Gregory (he tweeted that they don’t have the resources to prosecute everybody w/a hi-cap mag, you know).

  4. “Schumer Asks Gun Retailers To Stop Selling Guns While Congress Works On Legislation”

    Schumer puts on fuzzy rainbow wig, baggy pants, red nose, big floppy shoes, and rams a cream pie into his own face as he blindly feels around for the seltzer bottle with his other hand.

  5. Go here here to write to your Congress-critters.

  6. Unfortunately my Congress Critter is Lloyd Doggett and I have been trying to pick him off with by voting and occasional voodoo for years and years.

  7. “I like you, Jack. Well, maybe not. But I understand you.
    Let me tell you what’s gonna happen. This way you can prepare yourself. Soon there’s going to be a knock on that door and you will be called outside. In the hall there will be a man who outranks you. First, he’ll compliment you on the fine job you’ve done, that you’re making the world a safer place, that you’re to receive a commendation and a promotion. And then he’s going to tell you that I am to be released. You’re going to protest. You’ll probably threaten to resign. But in the end I will be released. The reason I’ll be released is the same reason you think I’ll be convicted. I do rub shoulders with some of the most vile, sadistic men calling themselves leaders today. But some of those men are the enemies of your enemies. And while the biggest arms dealer in the world is your boss, the President of the United States – who ships more merchandise in a day than I do in a year – sometimes it’s embarrassing to have his fingerprints on the guns. Sometimes he needs a freelancer like me to supply forces he can’t be seen supplying.
    So, you call me…evil.
    But unfortunately for you, I’m a necessary evil. ”

  8. Walmart hears Chucky.

    Wal Mart Is NOT Going To Order Any More Ammo

  9. if walmart could stand up to our fascist failshit freedom-raping federal government it wouldn’t really be fascism now would it

  10. All WalMarts geoff? I’ll check this out tomorrow when I go to town.

    Dudes are headquartered in Bentonville. What the hell?

  11. in that link it also says walmart is denying it

  12. Dudes are headquartered in Bentonville. What the hell?

    What percentage of Wal-Mart’s sales consists of firearms and ammunition? I suspect that it’s a remarkably-small number, which when measured about the potential grief this administration would give them for continuing to do so would make the choice obvious from a business standpoint…

  13. That piece strikes me as bullshit, and I’ve not been able to find any sort of confirmation for it.

    I mean…

    “As of right now Wal Mart is not going to be making any new orders of ammo because of the upcoming decision on the second amendment”.

    …really? Doubtful.

  14. This administration and its army of pinheads are going to give Wal Mart grief no matter what they do.

  15. What percentage of Wal-Mart’s sales consists of firearms and ammunition?

    Not all WalMart’s sell guns and ammo, so I’m not sure and I don’t feel like looking up their financials to find out. I can say that the WalMarts around here OK, MO, AK, KS sell guns and ammo and sell quite a bit of it. They don’t have the greatest selection, but lots of Mossbergs, .22s and cartridges for just about everything. Their prices aren’t all that competitive since we have a lot of sporting goods stores and straight up gun shops here that do more volume. They mainly cater to the lower dollar buyer and kids who are getting Daisy air rifles for their birthdays.

  16. The professional Left hates Walmart because their aren’t unionized and the hate everyone who would buy ammunition at Walmart for far too many reasons to list here. Sounds like getting Walmart to not sell ammunition hurts Walmarts customers and Walmart. A win-win for the professional Left.

  17. maybe baracky can get walmart to sell to the narcos in mexico

  18. …I’d rather seeing something like A Million Firearms March.

    Anyone have any theories on why conservatives don’t really conduct these kinds of rallies?

    Leftists will turn out in droves for the most inane shit. And, sure, in 2010 people gathered locally to confront their representatives and there was that clean-up at the National Mall featuring Glen Beck. But, as a rule, it seems conservatives are just averse to getting their mob on.

    I mean, you’d think our side would be the ones getting together at the drop of a hat whenever the feds start getting mission creep.

    This is a serious question. Something I’ve always wondered about but never really been able to put my finger on.

    Anyway, anyone want to school me, please do. Because I agree with Jeff on this. I’ll go one step further: I honestly think that showing up often, en masse, and pissed off is the only thing that’s going to keep the whole thing from falling apart.

  19. Ima definately ask about this tomorrow because I really don’t believe this to be true. The WalMart in my little town has at least 1000 square feet devoted to guns, compound bows and fishing tackle. There is a lot of Mossy Oak camping stuff and camo clothing, too.

  20. This is a serious question. Something I’ve always wondered about but never really been able to put my finger on.

    We have day jobs.

  21. This is a serious question. Something I’ve always wondered about but never really been able to put my finger on.

    Conservatives, by their nature, just want to be left alone. Proggs, by their nature, want to whine and scream and whoop and holler and make a nuisance of themselves.

  22. Not all WalMart’s sell guns and ammo, so I’m not sure and I don’t feel like looking up their financials to find out.

    They sell ammo here, but not guns. Same goes for MA and CT.

  23. I honestly think that showing up often, en masse, and pissed off is the only thing that’s going to keep the whole thing from falling apart.

    let’s hire the leftoid astroturf to protest for us. hire a bunch of former seiu “employees” to march on dc with “david gregory clips”

  24. They sell ammo here, but not guns.

    I wasn’t aware of that, Pablo. When I lived in PA I used to buy ammo at the range. $15 for 50 rounds of defensive ammo. Those were the days man.

  25. Insty speaks to the Walmart rumor: “Bogus.”

  26. Thanks sdferr.

  27. I suspect it’s just too much of a pain in the ass for them to bother here. Hell, they can’t even sell beer.

  28. walmart singing in the dead of night take these broken wings and learn to fly

    you were only waiting for this moment to arise I think

  29. Oh We’re Not Gonna Take It
    no, We Ain’t Gonna Take It
    oh We’re Not Gonna Take It Anymore

    we’ve Got The Right To Choose And
    there Ain’t No Way We’ll Lose It
    this Is Our Life, This Is Our Song
    we’ll Fight The Powers That Be Just
    don’t Pick Our Destiny ’cause
    you Don’t Know Us, You Don’t Belong

    oh We’re Not Gonna Take It
    no, We Ain’t Gonna Take It
    oh We’re Not Gonna Take It Anymore

    oh You’re So Condescending
    your Gall Is Never Ending
    we Don’t Want Nothin’, Not A Thing From You
    your Life Is Trite And Jaded
    boring And Confiscated
    if That’s Your Best, Your Best Won’t Do

    Leigh says January 14, 2013 at 7:02 pm:

    We have day jobs.

    Day jobs that pay the taxes (and the union dues) that underwrite the welfare lifestyle (or subsidize the paid vacation) that make the leftist doves possible in the first place.

    Conservatives, by their nature, just want to be left alone. Proggs, by their nature, want to whine and scream and whoop and holler and make a nuisance of themselves.

    Conservatives also tend to mind their own business, whereas proggs tend to believe that their business IS minding other people’s business.

  31. Now the link I put up is the original source of the story on Walmart. They are claiming that they have confirmed it with several people that managers of local stores are saying that they can’t order out of stock ammo.

    As Insty says Walmart corporate PR people are denying that any policy has been changed.

    Somewhere, someone is lying or at least shading the truth.

    I figure in 48 hours we shall know what transpired and who did what and for what reason. Lies are always done to benefit someone.

    As Insty put it:

    But the really bad news for Wal-Mart is that people found them believable.

    Or as I’ll say, “Lie down with dogs, get up with fleas, especially when you lie down behind closed doors.”

  32. Anyone have any theories on why conservatives don’t really conduct these kinds of rallies?

    Old story and it’s not just “conservatives” but gets to how the New Left took over the Democrats to begin with. From a piece in the 1972 Commentary magazine which I quoted from in a [now lost] pub piece I wrote.

    The fact is, however, that the purpose of the McGovern quotas was not to make the convention more representative of the Democratic electorate as a whole, but to favor the affluent liberals within the party and to diminish the influence of its lower-middle and working-class constituents.

    Those who take up the vocation of politics, as Max Weber insisted, first must have an extraordinary amount of free time. Such time is readily available to the suburban housewives and the subsidized students who have provided so many second-level leaders and foot soldiers to the New-Politics movement—and who, in practice, are the “women” and the “young” singled out by the McGovern quotas.

  33. Maybe relevant, maybe pure coincidence, but when I was at the local wal-mart this afternoon, I wandered over to the ammunition cabinet in sporting goods, just to see how picked over it was. About as I expected (for those of you who ignored the critics and went with a .380 for your CCW, I salute you).

    Also, two guys were busy (I now believe) disassembling it.

  34. Mob rule vs. rugged individualism. We are fighting an uphill matter from the start.

    As to Wal Mart and the ammo, they may just be scaling back until the supply picks up. Wal Mart doesn’t do empty shelf space.

  35. We have day jobs.

    Night jobs also cut into the available time for these sort of things. :-o

  36. As to Wal Mart and the ammo, they may just be scaling back until the supply picks up. Wal Mart doesn’t do empty shelf space.

    Very possible. It was a two section sliding glass front cabinet, one section for handgun ammunition, one section for rifle. Shotgun spread across the bottom shelves of both sections. Right now, they don’t need two sections.

  37. I’m going to do a tour, with my wife and friends, that day of all the gun stores in our area. Find something to buy at each if they have any stock left in ammo, brass, powder, primers.
