Trotting Out A Dusty Old Canard

I got an email yesterday from the Brady Campaign. Now that in and of itself is not unusual. They are usually begging for money almost as frequently as Gabby Gifford’s American for Responsible Solutions.

No, what I found intriguing was the depths that these people will sink to in order to push their anti-rights agenda. I shouldn’t be surprised given how in the Paul Helmke era they tried to portray a young James D’Cruz as an unhinged kid who would shoot up a school. That would be the same Mr. D’Cruz who just graduated this month from Harvard Law School.

This time Dan Gross and his advertising minions are now labeling national carry reciprocity as “the Zimmerman Bill”. They say it will give felons, domestic abusers, and fugitives an open license to carry like that “criminal George Zimmerman”. Yes, they actually referred to George as a criminal even though a jury of his peers found him not guilty. This is outright defamation. I have met George, spoken with George, and have seen how his life will never be the same after he defended himself. He is not an evil man. He is merely a guy who was attacked by a wannabe thug with evil intent who had to defend himself.

There is another subtle message that the Brady Campaign is implying by bringing George Zimmerman into the conversation about concealed carry. The message is that concealed carry will allow whites to kill blacks with impunity. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth but then expecting truth from the gun prohibitionists is an exercise in futility.

I have reposted the Brady Campaign’s email below so you see for yourself the depths to which they will go.

It may seem all eyes are on Trump’s Russia drama right now, but the gun industry has stayed laser-focused on profits and pushing the myth that more guns make the country safer.

You and I both know that’s a lie. But their latest attempt to put guns in the hands of every American — no matter how dangerous — is perhaps their most outrageous yet.

Trump and the gun industry have pushed Congress to introduce the Zimmerman Bill — what they call “concealed carry reciprocity.” This dangerous bill would roll back gun safety laws in nearly every state, forcing states with strong state laws to accept anyone with permission or a permit to carry a concealed gun, including criminals like George Zimmerman. This bill would create a system with no standards, no rules and no borders.

If the Zimmerman Bill becomes law, states working hard to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people would be at the mercy of states that do nothing to stop felons, domestic abusers, fugitives and people who are a danger to themselves or others from carrying loaded, hidden guns in public.

This bill already has nearly 200 cosponsors in the House of Representatives. But we can stop it! Sign our petition opposing the Zimmerman Bill today and stand together for a safer country.

Thank you for all you do,


I’ll Definitely Keep Buying His Books!

Chicago-based author Brad Thor has written a number of thrillers which I’ve read. He was interviewed about his most recent book Hidden Order on a ABC-7 Chicago’s morning show Windy City Live. They also wanted to interview him because of tweets he had made the day before offering to buy George Zimmerman a new firearm. Thor was furious that the Department of Justice had impounded Zimmerman’s Kel-Tec PF-9.

As recounted in The Blaze, Thor had some testy exchanges with the interviewers who were somewhat aghast that he’d offer to buy Zimmerman a new gun.

A show panelist asked whether “it’s really a good idea to give George Zimmerman a gun back?”

“He’s not guilty!” Thor said. “And as a matter of fact don’t you think he needs a gun now more than ever with all the death threats against him?”

Co-host Val Warner questioned why Zimmerman would “even risk going through the same thing again” if he had another gun.

“That’s his decision, Val, it’s not for us to decide if we’re going to curtail his liberty or not, that is his Second Amendment right to possess a firearm, defend himself, defend his family, and it is not up to you, it’s not up to me, to decide what’s right for George Zimmerman. He’s an American citizen, he gets to decide what’s right for him,” Thor said.

Warner said it could be Zimmerman’s decision “after everything is over.”

“When’s it over? How much more does he have to go through?” Thor said. “There’s not a shred of evidence that he is a racist and yet the Department of Justice is freezing

I know from past interviews that Thor is a gun guy.  More importantly, I like his willingness to stand up for what is right. I’ll definitely keep buying his books.

“The Lynching”

PJ Media’s Afterburner with Bill Whittle gets it right in this video. It was not Trayvon Martin who was “lynched” by George Zimmerman. Rather, it was multi-racial George Zimmerman who has endured a figurative lynching by the media, the Department of Justice, and the dual racialist reverends – Sharpton and Jackson.

After having bought into the narrative that Trayvon was a misunderstood youth who got profiled by the racist Zimmerman because of the color of his skin and then murdered by Zimmerman, the media essentially stopped their investigation of any causal factors. These include the role of Trayvon Martin’s drug use, the role that divorce played in his behavioral problems, and, if you really want to go deep, the ambiguous place of young black men without strong male role figures in a historically matriarchal community. In the video below, Whittle takes the media to task for their false narrative and examines in some detail items that the jury was not allowed to hear.

Kudos To The Buckeye Firearms Foundation

You may have read that the Department of Justice has requested a hold by the Sanford Police Department on all evidence in the George Zimmerman case while they continue their so-called investigation into the case. This hold precludes Mr. Zimmerman from getting his Kel-Tec PF-9 returned to him. As such, he is being kept defenseless while racist vigilantes are calling for his murder.

The Buckeye Firearms Foundation has stepped up to get Mr. Zimmerman a replacement firearm and necessary accessories.

George Zimmerman has every right to get his property back.

And if Eric Holder chooses to deny Mr. Zimmerman that right, Buckeye Firearms Foundation will remedy the matter by purchasing a NEW FIREARM for him, including a holster, flashlight, and any other gear he wants.

This is about more than mere principle. Zimmerman and his family now face daily threats on their lives. More than ever, he has a right to defend himself against those who would seek to do him harm.

Gun owners must stand together and refuse to allow an injustice like this to go unanswered. If we choose to sit idly by while the full force and weight of the federal government descends upon a free man, it will embolden others to take liberties with our rights.

We know what some will say about this. We know we will be reviled for taking this stand. Our motives will be impugned and our words will be twisted. But that happens already. Those who work against our rights will always do this. It hasn’t stopped us before and it won’t stop us now.

We have created the Zimmerman Second Amendment Fund. We encourage you to donate whatever you can afford, $100 … $50 … $25 … even just $10. We will provide Mr. Zimmerman, who has no current source of income, with the funds he needs to replace his firearm, holster, and other gear. The rest will be set aside to fight similar injustices … and they happen all the time.

Because the Foundation is a 503(c)(3) non-profit, any donation you make will be tax deductible. The link to their donation page is here.

Other groups such as the Illinois-based Guns Save Lives have also stepped up.
