So…

Today I swung my front door wide open and placed my Remington 12-gauge semi-auto shotgun right in the doorway.  I left 9 shells beside it, then left it alone and went about my business.

While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail; the boy across the street mowed the yard; a girl walked her dog down the street; and quite a few cars stopped at the stop sign near the front of my house.

After about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was still sitting there, right where I had left it.  Imagine that! It hadn’t moved itself. It certainly hadn’t killed anyone, even with the numerous opportunities it had been presented to do so. In fact, it hadn’t even loaded  itself. How weird!

Well you can imagine my surprise, with all the hype by the Left and the Media about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people.

Either the media is wrong, or I’m in possession of the laziest gun in the world.

The United States is third in murders throughout the World.  But if you take out just four cities, i.e., Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC  and New Orleans, the United States is fourth from the bottom, in the entire world, for murders!

Do you like facts? These four Cities have the toughest Gun Control Laws in the U.S.  All four of these cities are controlled by Democrats.  Just imagine if you were to subtract out St. Louis, Baltimore, New Orleans and Detroit, all politically Democrat enclaves!

The USA might otherwise be the safest place on earth!

It would be absurd to draw any conclusions from this factual data – right?

Well, I’m off to check on my spoons. I hear they’re making people fat.

In other news, there are some arguments about shot placement…

  1. If guns were responsible for violence, then gun shows would be bloodbaths. Rifles – Shotguns – Pistols – Revolvers – Ammunition – High Capacity Magazine – Folding Stocks – etc. etc. All in one location, with thousands of people of all ages, nationalities, religions.

    When was the last mass shooting at even one of the dozens (hundreds ?) of gun shows you can recollect. I cannot recall even one. A few ‘idiots’ forgetting to check the chamber and an AD happening – yes. But mass shooting – I got nothing.

  2. Sounds like your shotgun is as well behaved as my firearms are. Must be the upbringing they had. A couple years ago we had our first homicide in the county in about 20 years when one meth head ran over another. Obviously we need a ban on assault Buicks.

  3. I noticed that you couldn’t find enough pieces of the artillery target silhouette to take a photo. 🙂

        • Only if you’re using Copperhead or another PGM. Otherwise the arty target is * over there *. Oops, winds aloft again?

          There is also the Order of St. Barbara for artillery and its ordnance. Saw one of the awards; very nice recognition and suitably impressive parchment.

  4. You needed to add an All the above choice to your shot placement picture they are all appropriate to the duties of the troops
    involved.

  5. You’re definitely not woke.

    Smear some black grease on your face before you go out next time. If somebody asks you, “who do you think you are?” Tell them you’re the gun grabbing Prime Minister of Canada.

  6. All- I see y’all are as bad as I am… John- Arty/NGFS is the definition of close enough for government work… LOL

  7. As much fun as those statistics may seem to be, well, statistics lie.

    We don’t know how many murders happen in any African nation because, well, Africa.

    Mexico? Where people, whole families, small towns just disappear? Yeah…

    Venezuela?

    Columbia, still, where the drug lords are getting active, again?

    The Philippines? Where open fighting in the streets of some cities has approached real war level, even before the Army is called in?

    If all the people executed by ISIS weren’t murdered, what were they?

    And… Sweden, that isn’t counting victims of grenade attacks as murders. Yes. Grenade Attacks. When was the last time there was an actual hand grenade explosively used in These United States?

    Or, well, Communist China. Where the only news that is allowed to come out is, well, what they want us to know. Yet we hear rumors of actual wars over viable females available for weddings (Gee, almost like that stupid book “Handmaiden’s Tail.”)

    And Russia? Still lots of problems between their organized crime groups and various separatists and terrorists. But those don’t count.

    And England? Jolly good place to get killed, acid attacked, stabbed, run over, blown up, gassed, murdered, sold into slavery, etc.

    As usual, France sees what England is doing and goes, “Here, hold my w(h)ine,” and tries to out-stupid England, and in this case, France is succeeding. (We haven’t had priests murdered during church services, yet. But France has…)

    We actually don’t have a gun problem, murder problem, theft problem, violence problem, crime problem, if we discount the actions of a small group of 13% of the population. A group that mostly consists of young males and females between the ages of 14 and 25.

    Get rid of, or get control of, that small percentage of that percentage, and, overall, our crime issue would mostly dry up, leaving us with the drug issue and a few other things to now occupy our polices’ times.

    Was I subtle enough?

  8. American Rifleman arrived today. The cover is… a scary black shotgun, and a handgun. And we all know, only scary black guns kill people.

  9. “Either the media is wrong, or I’m in possession of the laziest gun in the world.”
    The media is wrong and your weapon is only going to work when you use it (kind of like a hammer). Texas is being invaded by California and New York (thanks Gov Perry). Leaving the front door open is dangerous.

    • DW – we could ‘probably’ deal with those coming in thru the front door – it is all of the ones sneaking in thru the back door (and windows and coal scuttles) that are the real problem.

  10. I have an intuition that the graphic does not accurately represent the actual theory of the machine gunner. I mean, wouldn’t you drop the the guy the first time you swing across, and not bother going back because he is down, and you have other targets? Asking seriously, because I know I do not know.

    • BRF – I’m not a machine gunner – although I have shot more than a few – seems like their mantra should be “ventilated until eliminated” – works for me anyway 😉

  11. All- Thanks for the comments, Bob- I ‘think’ it’s rounds until he goes down is their mentality…

    SPQR- LOL

  12. On a serious note: The machine gunner theory is the right answer. Only in the movies does the defensive shooter see where his/her rounds land. In real life, bad guys wear clothes and attack when the light is low. The only way defensive shooter will know that they made any hits at all is when the bad-buy assumes the prone position and becomes a good, bad-guy. The only person who is going to see the shoot-n-c target is the coroner.

  13. You are one funny person.
    Some of your comments just kill me.
    I like it very much.
    Oh yes, Merry Halloween to you this year and your family and friends.
