Quote Of The Day

“If you are a bad guy and come into our schools with a gun, or any other kind of weapon, with the intention of causing harm to our faculty or children, our Deputies will eliminate you immediately.” — Putnam County (TN) Sheriff Eddie Farris

Oh man, am I the only one who got the Warm & Fuzzies from reading that?

Likelihood of a school mass shooting in Putnam county:  zero.

Things I’d Like to See #3,453

Whenever I see a headline like this:

Thousands of gun control advocates are expected to rally Saturday in Washington, DC, and across the country in a nationwide “March for Our Lives” protest following the deadly mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

…what I would really like to see is a counter-protest of, say, ten million gun owners descending on Washington D.C. — no funny stuff, just an immense crowd of people holding hand-painted signs saying non-contentious things like “We Love Our Second Amendment”, “First And Second Amendments — Our Two Pillars of Freedom” and “Over 1 Million Violent Crimes Prevented Each Year By Law-Abiding Gun Owners”, etc., so that for once, the world can see the depth of our support for the Second Amendment.

But we don’t do that, do we?  And by our silence, we give the stage to the gun-confiscators and -controllers, and the world says, “See?  See?  Even Americans want gun control!” when in fact we don’t.

And when some crackpot like Michael Moore thunders:

“Repeal the Second Amendment. Repeal the Second Amendment.”

…we just chuckle, because we know that such a thing would require a two thirds majority in both House and Senate, and a three-quarter majority of all the states — ergo, it ain’t gonna happen.

In the near future.  But further down the road?  You sure about that?

Overheard

…at the gas station yesterday:

“If these fuckers don’t do something soon, they’re gonna need all those Guardsmen around the Capitol.  And I ain’t kidding.”

I report, you decide.

Dept. Of Righteous Shootings

Don’t you just love it when tough old broads take care of much-younger assholes in a righteous manner?

A 70-year-old woman said she fired a warning shot after a stranger walked into her home Sunday afternoon and wouldn’t leave, before ultimately shooting him. The man died at the hospital.

Right on, Gammy.  Although the warning shot was an unnecessary precaution… still:

Dept. Of Righteous Shootings

Here’s how to be merciful:

A DeKalb County, Indiana, homeowner opened fire on four alleged robbers around 6 a.m. Sunday, killing two of them.

WPTA reports that the homeowner was asleep in his house when his dog’s barking awoke him. He then “saw three people in his home, later identified as 42-year-old Tabitha L. Johnson, Dylan Morefield…[and Rameica Moore].”

The homeowner claimed two of the people threatened him, allegedly holding a gun to his head.

After allegedly gathering a number of things to steal from the homeowner the robbers demanded money. He wrote them a check and was then able to get his hands on a shotgun and open fire.

His shotgun blasts killed Morefield and Moore.

He then walked Johnson outside the home at gunpoint, where he found a fourth alleged robber and held that individual at gunpoint as well.

Of course, he should have been able to whack all four;  but hey, I’ll take felony murder for the surviving goblins.

LOL looks as though you need more than four people to rob a house in rural Indiana…
