A blog about firearms, self-defense, politics, hunting, personal responsibility and other topics that catch our interest by a couple from the frozen north, temporarily displaced to "Outside."
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”It is not enough to be pro-Second Amendment. You need to be pro-Bill of Rights. Everyone likes to say that the 2A is the ultimate gurantor of the others, but really, all of the core rights are interdependent. The residents of Corcord, Lexington, and other surrounding communities had to use their rights to assemble, to communicate, to have private property relatively secure from search, etc as well as their right to keep and bear arms.
[Re Occupy protestors] The typical argument I get from police officer friends that they were “breaking the law because they were on public property,” is a load of complete horseshit. What if the folks in Boston on 16DEC1773 had decided, “Well, standing on this street corner is against the law, so we’re going to just disperse like the soldiers/cops are telling us to?”
It is well understood that Holmes was wearing body armor. Why argue about the kind anyway? There is no point to it.The context is that Joan Peterson was discussing the "Batman" mass shooting. She was arguing that it was impossible for anyone to take him out as he was wearing body armor. Readers pointed out that no, he was not wearing a bulletproof vest. He was wearing a load bearing vest meant to carry gear which is about as bulletproof as a windbreaker. Clearly, reality does not impede on her world, however.
