The Jenner Thing

Jonah Goldberg: “[T]here’s something gloriously perverse in celebrating someone’s courage to boldly smash sexual categories and then, in the same breath, castigating them for reinforcing gender stereotypes. If men are to be free to become women, surely they get to decide what kind of women they want to be. The first word in Vanity Fair is, after all, ‘Vanity.’ The Sports Illustrated swimsuit models seem very happy to be paid lots of money to be objectified by the male gaze. Who am I to judge? … On most days of the week, liberals are fond of claiming that Republicans are ‘anti-science’ on everything from global warming to evolution. Well, last I checked, biology hadn’t been declared a branch of the humanities. Bruce Jenner was 65 years old when he decided to be a she, but that’s not why Caitlyn can’t have a baby. Figuratively speaking, removing the spigot won’t change the rest of the plumbing. That’s not patriarchal oppression talking. That’s science. And no matter how fluid gender may or may not be, the biological category of ‘female’ isn’t going away anytime soon.”

For this RED Friday, let’s take a look at our favorite subject, GUN CONTROL!

When a home burns down in your community, it probably makes front-page news in the local paper. When a homeowner uses a fire extinguisher to put out a kitchen blaze before it spreads, it may not make the news at all. An incident prevented isn’t seen as an incident. This is why, when the topic of gun-free zones comes up, we need to write letters to the editor and call in to the radio talk shows to spread the truth. – Masaad Ayoob

This is just a quick peek at the well written article on American Handgunner titled The False Hope of Gun Free Zones. I suggest you go read the whole thing.

Remember Everyone Deployed Friday

Good Friday to you! It’s the end of another week, the start of another weekend, and in most of the country there will be cold weather. Except here, it’s supposed to be in the 70s all weekend. I know, it’s a rough life, but wait until summer time and I’m complaining about the heat …

I did something this morning I haven’t done in a really, really long time – I’ve added a link to the sidebar. Please be sure to visit Active Response Training for news and updates on – well, Active Response Training. The articles will get you focused on keeping yourself and your loved ones safe, which, in this day and age, is of very high importance.

Have a safe and relaxing weekend; I’ll be honoring a Viet Nam vet this weekend at his final posting.

Troubling Red Friday

I was just sitting at my computer at work, and during my break I happened to open up Facebook. Wonderful tool, Facebook. Lets you know the minutia in everyone’s lives. Well, everyone with an internet connection and a Facebook account, anyway.

I ran across a story that had me doing several things at once: Laughing out loud (coworkers think I’ve lost it), crying in frustration, shaking my head in wonderment, and mourning the death of Common Sense. Yes, you’ve seen the meme that says CS died a while ago, but this confirms it:

“It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, ‘Hey, folks, leave your guns at home,’” Theresa Nolan, principal of Tinley Park High School, told the SouthtownStar.

Nolan stressed that she is very concerned with “safety and security” and concerned that, somehow, someone could wrongly interpret an image of a gun emblazoned with the universal sign for prohibiting something.

“I think the general public will be alarmed by it and wonder if people have been allowed to bring guns to school in the past,” Nolan also fretted.

She said she would prefer “something more subtle.”

“You can’t look at this (sticker) and not think about Sandy Hook,” the principal added.

You can read the article for yourself here.

First off, let me assure you I am very much a supporter of Gun Control. Use two hands if you need to, but be in control of your gun at all times. Second, people SHOULD be reminded of Sandy Hook every day – and Aurora, and Columbine, and the Maryland Mall – all places where guns are prohibited, unless you are going to kill lots of people, then you can bring your guns to these target-rich environments where NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO DEFEND THEMSELVES.

We, as a country, have decided that the best way to keep our children safe and educated is to isolate them on open campuses with no weapons allowed.

This is stupid.

Let me also assure you that when my family is near me, they are protected.

Period.

You may interpret that any way you want to.

And yes, I am very pissed about the Progressive’s constant attack on the Second Amendment.
