Did I forget?

To mention that while the gun banners are screeching for new laws and bans that this latest shooting has once again taken place in one of their vaunted "gun free" zones?

I for one, would like to see a different terminology used when referring to places that law abiding citizens cannot carry self defense tools.  I think we should begin calling them what they actually are:  Mass Murder Empowerment Zones or MMEZ.

Over the last 20+ years, with the exception of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting, every mass shooting in the United States has occurred in a "Gun Free" Zone.  Every one.  Yes kiddies, Ft Hood is an MMEP.  Concealed carry for self defense is prohibited on military bases and indeed on most federal properties unless you're an only one.

I would also ask businesses that do not permit employees to carry self defense tools while at work to at least be honest about it when hiring new employees.  You could handle it during the interview process by simply saying, "if we are robbed, we expect you to just cooperate with the criminal.  We know that sometimes, these criminals go ahead and shoot their victims anyway but, we're ok with that".  You could also just go ahead and warn the rest of us by posting a sign on your business that says something like "We do not believe in a citizen's right to self defense and we're ok with it if you get killed while working/shopping here because we don't think guns should be permitted anywhere".

For those of my readers who either live in Michigan or visit Michigan, I refer you to the links on the sidebar to your right to the link for the Do Not Patronize List of the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners.  The MCRGO is a great organization and has developed an up to date listing of the MMEZ's in Michigan.

Here We Go Again

There was another senseless shooting today.  An Elementary School in CT.  The reports I have received say 27 dead.  Horrible, senseless and of course, the gun ban crowd is already dancing in the blood

The calls for a new "assault weapon" ban are already coming from the frothing mouths of the gun ban groups and their idiot followers none of them even aware that "assault weapon" was made up by the gun ban crowd to help scare people....oops, I mean sheeple into joining the cause.

Would you believe that the anti gun crazies are even attacking Bushmaster on it's facebook page?  How fucking deluded are these people?  Yes, apparently a MSR was found in a car nearby but handguns were found with the shooter's body (apparently he assumed room temperature after shooting himself).  That info is from USA Today.  Please wander over to Bushmaster's Facebook page and show them a little love.  They should not be held any more responsible for the inappropriate use of their product than an automobile manufacturer should be held for the inappropriate use of theirs.

All that having been said, Warthog Control sends it's prayers to the friends and families affected by this tragic event.

Today In History

Well, one neat little bit of it anyway.  Imagine a bar room brawl with the lights out.  Naval Style.

Veteran's Day

I take a day like today and remember my time in the service and think of those I served with.  What we did, where we went, the things we saw.  All of them are some pretty amazing memories. 

I also remember those who have chosen to be in harm's way now.

Enjoy this day, honor those who no longer can and send a prayer to those still in harm's way.

It Was Good While It Lasted

243 years after it's founding, the greatest Republic in human history was murdered in it's sleep.  243 years of freedom gone with the pull of a voting lever operated by people that obviously haven't been paying attention.  People who care about nothing other than the "free" government cheese they use to feed their illegitimate children.  God forbid they go get a job and help pay for that cheese, they'd rather tax businessmen into poverty to provide it for them. They vote for people like this.

The only hope for survival now depends on a still conservative majority in the house, if they actually stand on their principals but as the old joke goes, you know a politician is lying when his/her lips are moving.

Now we wait on the next 4 years that they've given this person to see how much more destruction can be heaped upon the smouldering heap of ash that was a great nation.

This Is Cool

Veteran's Day is coming up soon, November 11 to be exact, and I just found a list of places that are honoring Vets with some pretty cool discounts. 

One of the reasons I decided to post this was that I noticed that there are some really useful Year round discounts for Vets that are offered by some places.

I think it's great to see Veterans get some of the recognition they deserve.  So, without any further fuss and bother, here's the link.  Patronize these places please.

Birthday Fun

Today was the big 50.

First some words of wisdom.  There is NO over the hill.  This is because there is no hill, it's a fucking cliff and there are no warning signs or guardrails.

First, Range Time

Then, a celebration of what ATF is supposed to stand for...WARTHOG STYLE!





Happy Birthday to me.

I found this too funny not to share.

WTF Moment

I was perusing some news articles when I ran across this ridiculous piece of shit:  http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes/top-stories/muslims-want-catholic-school-to-provide-room-without-crosses.html

OK, let me get to a few things here.  I just need to stop alternating between laughing and shaking my head.

I suppose since the mooselimbs are feeling all discriminated against that it's only a matter of time before they blow something up or set it on fire.  If Catholic University is going to hold the line against this stupidity, they may want to form both a riot squad and a fire department.  Just sayin.

I get particular entertainment out of this line: The Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights confirmed that it is investigating allegations that Catholic University violated the human rights of Muslim students for 2 reasons.

First, has anyone actually determined that Muslims are human to begin with?  Before you try to beat me up for that statement, take a look at their conduct over that last 15 or 20 years as covered by the news.  Riots, beheadings, torture, stoning women who are buried up to their necks, bombings.  This isn't what most of the rest of the world considers the behavior of civilized humans.


Second, it's a CATHOLIC SCHOOL you 7th century pedophile worshipping derpwaffle.  If you're offended by all of the Christian symbology, don't go to a Christian school.

In my opinion, the last group on Earth that should be making claims that their "human rights" are being ignored are Muslims.  Any judge that gets this case on his/her desk should laugh and then drop in it a trash can.  I'd have them in court long enough to say, you made the decision to attend a Catholic school.  No one made you go there, you chose it.  Since you chose the Catholic school, you also chose the environment in which you would live.  You cannot now come into this court and say, the University has to change for us.  No it doesn't.  If you regret your choice then choose to attend another school.

Warthog Control is back online with new high speed internet.  We'll get some new rants up shortly.

If you've been waiting, thanks for the patience.  If you're new, welcome.  If you never liked me anyway, well fuck you then.

Devoid of New

Yes, I know this has been a wasteland lately.  I hope that will change soon.  Home internet is currently non-functional and I am in the middle of a job change.

Warthogs Wrants lives but fresh entries are on hold for the time being.

Absolute Gold

More golden words from Brigid. Read them carefully and heed them well. You just never know.

Good Advice...But

I found this good article on things every gun owner should have but sometimes ignores. There's some information in there about how to carry loose cartridges if you're a single action revolver type or getting high quality hard cases to carry your rifles. There's a really nice bit about how every pistol deserves a holster and I really do agree with that. Get a reliable high quality holster for your pistol.

One thing the author missed and I want to touch on is more for folks like me who carry a semi automatic pistol like the 1911 or the XD.

MAGAZINES!

I found out the hard way that my 1911 hates 8 round magazines. Doesn't matter who makes them. Doesn't matter who's spring is in it. Doesn't matter who made the follower or what type it is. My 1911 hates, and I mean truly hates 8 round magazines. I need to use the standard old school 7 round magazines. Any type, style or manufacturer.

Thank the Gods I discovered this on the range and not under the black flag. When the SHTF is a really bad time to find out that your magazines aren't reliable or your pistol hates the magazines you have.

Those that love the Glock should know that Glocks have a nasty reputation for not functioning properly with magazines made by anyone other than Glock and some of those, especially the earlier models, don't work real well either. No matter what semi auto pistol you carry, make double damn sure your magazines function properly with your pistol. This isn't a suggestion my friends, it's an order.

Your life may depend on it.

The Annual Spring Weather Post

After the tragic events of a couple days ago, I feel the need to post the annual reminder.



If you don't have a weather alert radio, go get one, have it properly programmed for the correct SAME code for your community and leave it turned on.

Know where the closest shelter is. Have it stocked for 3-5 days of survival just in case you lose everything else.

Take a skywarn spotter class so that you can keep an eye on the weather while you're out and about. These are open to the public and will give you a real good idea what to look for. You don't need any special training or equipment to do this.

I may not be a meteorologist, but I predict that this storm season is going to be a real bitch. See to your safety and the safety of your loved ones.

R.I.P.

Andrew Breitbart. You will be sorely missed.

Please keep his family in your prayers.

Funny Stuff

Do you read Mausers and Muffins by Brigid? No? You fool, then you missed this gem.

The Barn Cat- The beltfed weapon of the hayloft (with a reminder of some of the rules of cats)

Cats are always loaded.

Be sure of your cat and what is behind it.

Never point your cat at anything you don't wish to destroy (especially furniture).

Keep your finger off the cat until you are ready to fire.

Valentine's Day

We all know that Valentine's day is rapidly approaching so don't forget to buy something nice for your significant other, if you have one. If you feel the need to send me gifts, .45 ACP and cash are always acceptable, LOL.

Ah but, the day couldn't be complete without some insanity from the gun ban crowd. I call your kind attention to this article. Take your time, I'll be right here when you're done.

Done? Good.

I think you already know what I'm going to propose but for those who don't know me too very well, attend please.

On February 14th, 2012, I would like for all freedom loving individuals across this great Republic to venture forth to their local Starbucks Coffee joint and spend some money. Buy a new coffee mug for your Mom, send some coffee beans to your sister, buy a couple of your friends a cup of coffee or a cappuccino. Why? Well to spit in the gun banner's eye, do you need a better reason?

Their plan is to do some financial damage to the business to try to coerce Starbucks into joining them on the gun ban band wagon. We should step up to mitigate that loss as a way of saying Thank You to Starbucks for accepting that in some places, you can carry a gun and for not discriminating against us.

I freely admit that I have absolutely no connection to Starbucks whatsoever and I doubt that they, as a corporation, are even aware of my existence. I also admit that I normally do not patronize Starbucks as I don't think their coffee is all that great and I do think it's overpriced however, I love a chance to spit in the eyeballs of the gun banners and I think our own little "Operation Thank You" in the face of a gun banners boycott will be both noticed and appreciated.

GO FORD

I just spotted this in the local news site. I thought I would share it, not only because I love and proudly drive a Ford, but also to show that Obambi's bailouts didn't really mean shit.

Blog Drought

I just realized what a desert this blog has become lately.

There has been a lot going on here at Warthog Control and most of it can be classified under NOT good. I will not bore you with the details.

2012 is off to a rocky start and the only thing I'm looking forward to as of right now, is that in November, we will be delivering a big fat pink slip to pResident JugEars and his band of merry thieves. I just pray for a real President who has actually read and understands the Constitution.

Just for the record, I am NOT voting for Romney.

Anyway, for those that were wondering, I am still alive and I still check in daily but the demands of real life have sapped most of my ability to write right now and most of what I see is far too depressing anyway.
