Jan 14, 201306:16 AMBlaska's Bring It!

with David Blaska

Former Mayor Dave Cieslewicz must be disarmed before he kills someone!

(page 2 of 2)

What’s the matter with Texas?

Remember the busybody suburban New York City newspaper that published the interactive map of legal gun owners? (There is no way to map illegal gun owners.) Now they’ve gone and mapped the gun owners of the entire state of Texas. I reproduce it for you here. The red dot indicates location of gun owner. (H/T: The Big Empty.)

In a previous episode, your humble Squire ridiculed the NY Times for urging President Obama to pardon 5,000 convicted crack cocaine dealers.

The impossibly young Jack Craver, former blogger now teething at the anti-Capitalist Times, expressed surprise “that a self-proclaimed tea partier would be an apparent supporter of drug Prohibition (note capitalization). Is it because of the Progressive impulse to regulate, or is because AFSCME needs more members?”

Your humble Squire volleyed, “Richard Pryor said it best: Cocaine users want more cocaine. Crack users want to kill somebody.”

Master Craver parried, “And what do people with 50 guns want?”

Squire responds: “51.”

(He shoots, he scores.)

Requiescat in pace to my old editor at The Capital Times, Jerry Ambelang, age 83. A kind man and true Badger. His obituary.

I said Saturday night what I said after the Rose Bowl: “Darn, dang, heck, jiminy Christmas, shoot, dad-gummit, and consarn-it!”

Didn't the NRA tell you Obama was after our gun rights? Do you still think the NRA was fear-mongering?

I'd consider giving up a gun if Cizzy would give up his blog--or at least limit it to, say, one a month.

The next time the progressives query "Who needs assault style rifles?" or "Who needs 30 round magazines?" I think the appropriate response should be "Why do you need 1st amendment rights to free speech? You do not want me to own guns or magazines you don't like, I don't want you speaking nonsense that I don't like." Would the point even be recognized?

Dear Mr. Anonymous,
You obviously missed the class that taught critical thinking. The First Amendment is not analogous to the Second Amendment.
And yes, I would like to know your response to:
The next time the progressives query "Who needs assault style rifles?" or "Who needs 30 round magazines?"

The only response I have heard to that question is that the NRA needs the assault-style rifles and 30-round magazines for their shooting competitions.
