by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

I’ll have much more to say on the Texas shooting when more facts are in.

But until then, let me make one point to all you on social media and in in the MSM who are whining like two year olds that had their candy taken away for someone to “DO SOMETHING!”


Specifically, deal with the fact that being an adult means you, and only you, are responsible for your safety and self-defense.

As Texas Shooter Killed Unarmed Citizens, FBI Admits Armed Citizens Stopped 4 Recent Mass Shootings


by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

A week before the tragic shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, the FBI put out a report showing how armed citizens have prevented or stopped multiple mass shootings in just the last two years.

On Friday, a deranged teenager broke multiple gun laws—that were in place to prevent exactly what happened—and began shooting up Santa Fe High School in Texas. All the gun control measures in place did not stop a criminal juvenile from obtaining two guns and walking onto his school campus to kill people. What actually stopped him, however, was guns, lots of them.

The police officers responding to the shooting were all heavily armed and it was only because of their weapons that they brought in the shooter. Good guys with guns are what stop bad guys with guns.

Did Texas School Shooter Dimitrios Pagourtzis Have Links To Antifa Or Was He Just Copying Columbine?

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Not again. Yet another mass school shooting in America is making headlines all over the world, and this is another case in which the warning signs were there well ahead of time. Dimitrios Pagourtzis had been wearing a trenchcoat to school all year, he had posted violent and disturbing messages on social media, and he seems to have been obsessed with the Columbine school shooting. Unfortunately, nobody ever intervened, and the entire world now knows the name Dimitrios Pagourtzis.

An Active Shooter Open Fires on a Crowd. What Do You Do?


by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:

[Editor’s Note: A rising epidemic is growing in this country that no one seems to know how to quell. According to a recent study, there are more mass shootings in the United States than in any other country in the world. Equally as sobering is the fact that Americans tend to suffer from mental disorders more than any other country. Could this be coincidental?

While there is no universal definition of a “mass shooting,” one can surmise this country has a big problem and the numbers speak for themselves. Thus far, 2018 has seen close to 100 mass shootings occur across the country. The numbers are sobering to say the least and show that something is very wrong and has sprawled nationwide debates on every subject from gun control to protection.



from InfoWars:

An armed school resource officer saved countless lives Wednesday when he shot an ex-student who opened fire on the campus of Dixon High School in Dixon, Illinois.

Matt Milby, the alleged 19-year-old suspect, arrived on campus at 8 A.M. and began firing shots near the gym until school resource officer Mark Dallas started chasing him.

Another Possible School Shooting Stopped By Good Guy With Gun That You Won’t Hear About In The Mainstream Media

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

Officer Scott is a hero, but you aren’t going to hear that much about his heroism in the mainstream media because he actually stopped the bad guy with a gun.

On Wednesday, an armed male was shot by a school resource officer at a high school in Illinois.

As students and staff gathered at Dixon High School in northern Illinois, a 19-year-old former student opened fire on officer Mark Dallas. The officer then returned fire and wounded the young man before taking him into custody.

UN Quietly Advancing International Gun Confiscation

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

This is just one among a plethora of reasons why the UN should be abandoned by the united States. We should not keep it on life support. We should pull all our resources to it and any support for it, including housing the UN on our shores.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there is no gun control, there is only gun confiscation, and this is exactly what the United Nations is quietly advancing while other things take precedence in the news today.

Ruger SR1911 – 9mm Compact


by Pat Cascio, Survival Blog:

Ruger’s newest 1911 handgun is under review here. Ruger sure did it up right. Check out our findings.

The 1911 Handgun
The 1911 handgun has been around since, well 1911, in one guise or another. I don’t have the facts to back this up, but I suspect it is the best-selling model of handgun of all time, based on how many different companies have produced a version of it over the years. And, just when you think we have saturated the 1911 market, a new maker comes along or an established maker comes out with more models. There seems to be no end to what can be done with a 1911 platform.

Swiss Citizens Refuse to Comply with International Gun Controllers


from Ammoland:

As NRA-ILA reported on April 27, peaceful Switzerland is in the crosshairs of international and domestic gun control advocates who are intent on abolishing the idyllic nation’s tradition of an armed citizenry. Using the 2017 changes to the European Firearms Directive as justification, these foreign and home-grown forces are attempting to burden the tranquil republic with gun controls the Swiss people have continually rejected. However, as was pointed out in a recent Bloomberg article, many Swiss citizens are refusing to take this assault on their inalienable rights and national sovereignty lying down.

Australia’s Restrictive Gun Laws Working Nearly As Well As Chicago’s

by The Feral Irishman, The Burning Platform:

Many liberal concepts begin as well meaning “good intentions”. I believe a large portion of those peoples who consider themselves liberals do not realize that they are being led or herded in a direction where the true agenda is much more sinister than the “rallying cry” they have chosen to “follow” (i.e. gun control). I sincerely believe the people who are REALLY seek to disarm Americans (or any country for that matter) are people who have a vested interest in controlling and imposing their will upon those who are armed.

American Patriots Push Back Hard As Backlash Against Gun-Grabbers Escalates With 2nd Amendment Supporters Severing Ties With Anti-Gun Entities

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

Dick’s Sporting Goods put themselves right in the middle of a firestorm after the Marjory Douglas shooting in Florida by immediately announcing they would stop selling one of the most popular modern sporting rifles, which were still being sold in their Field & Stream stores.

They also made it company policy to “no longer sell firearms to anyone under 21 years of age,” and “no longer sell high capacity magazines.”

Despite customer backlash, and two separate lawsuits in Oregon and Michigan, over age discrimination, Dick’s then doubled down and announced they were “in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories,” rather than trying to return them to their manufacturers.

In early May, Dick’s then decided to make it very clear as to their anti-second amendment stance by hiring a gun control lobbyist group to pressure Congress to push for more gun control laws, including banning what they called “assault-style” firearms, which are modern day sporting rifles, pushing for a 21 year-old age minimum to purchase firearms, even if a state’s age of consent is 18, and to ban high capacity magazines.

Oregon Gun Ban Petition Meets MASS RESISTANCE

by Brock Simmons, The Gateway Pundit:

The Oregon gun confiscation ballot initiative, petition #43, has passed the first hurdle with the Oregon Secretary of State. After gathering 3400 signatures during the weekend of the “March For Our Lives” astroturf photo op “protests”, not even 1000 of the signatures were valid. In Oregon, 1000 “sponsorship” signatures are required for a proposed ballot initiative. They eventually got more signatures and turned them in on April 17th. After the signatures were verified, they were given a “draft ballot title”. In Oregon, during the “draft ballot title” phase, any elector (registered voter) can comment on the ballot title and argue for or against the title for a bevy of different reasons.

The little boy, Maverick, is seen in the following video as he pretends to shoot a rifle, even detaching and reattaching the magazine.

While many of the useful idiots who have fallen in lockstep with the likes of David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez, scared to death of guns and those who are armed, a recent viral video of a 4-year-old handling a rifle at the latest National Rifle Association convention in Dallas has captured the attention and hearts of people all across America.

The little boy, Maverick, is seen in the following video as he pretends to shoot a rifle, even detaching and reattaching the magazine.

Hunter Kendall Jones tweeted out the video, “This video is INCREDIBLE!! Parenting done RIGHT.”

I’m Getting On In Years
I sincerely hate admitting that I’m getting on in years, but I am. We all knew we’d grow old, but we didn’t know how fast it would happen. And, what comes with growing older is we tend to grow weaker in many respects. Body parts don’t work like they used to. I suffer from severe osteo-arthritis in my hands, especially my right hand, which is my shooting hand, and my trigger finger. Osteo-arthritis is caused by wear and tear, for the most part. I had to have my right hip replaced a little over a year ago because of this and a small birth defect on the head of the femur bone that accelerated the wear and tear. It has literally taken a full year to recover from the hip replacement.
