SOTG 611 – Gun Games Can Kill You
(www.ipscnl.ca)

Sadly, we have another example of how gun games or playing games with guns can lead to an early grave. Professor Paul has addressed this issue before, but apparently not everyone is listening loud enough.

California gun owners can beat the rush by surrendering their magazine-fed handguns now. The groundwork is being laid for the next round of gun control legislation in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia.

Also, during our Quiet Time moment from SilencerShop.com, Paul has a recommended reading selection for you. We must read and understand history to understand what the future has in store for us.

The Latest: UPS Shooter Armed With “Assault Pistol” in CA: www.usnews.com

From www.metronews.ca:

Members of a Kamloops shooting range are in shock after a seasoned visitor from Vancouver accidentally shot himself in the torso this weekend during a competition Sunday.

A Facebook post from the Vancouver-based Canadian Tactical Cowboy Supplies identified him as Dr. Richard Cho, an experienced competition shooter and an International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC)-certified “Black Badge” instructor.

“Today the B.C. shooting community mourns the loss of a shining star,” the business said on its Facebook page alongside a photograph of Cho. “(He) was a husband, healer, athlete, teacher, student and all-around great guy.

“… We are truly in Rich’s debt. Our thoughts are with his wife and his family.”

Cho, whose name has not been officially released by authorities, was 50, according to a local RCMP spokesperson.

“There was nothing suspicious in the death so the case is now with the Coroner’s office,” said Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie in an email Monday. She said police responded around 1 p.m. Sunday.

“A man who had been participating in a pistol competition had lost control of his firearm and accidentally fired a shot into his torso,” an RCMP statement said. “Witnesses administered first aid immediately and the victim was transported to Royal Inland Hospital by BC Ambulance.

“Unfortunately, the man succumbed to his injury soon after.”

From www.studentofthegun.com/articles:

It’s happened again, another lone nut-job has murdered innocent citizens. No I’m not going to add to the infamy of this piece of human debris that is for some inexplicable reason still stealing oxygen from our planet. This week I add one more to the innumerable reasons why I am glad I don’t subscribe to cable television: 24/7 non-stop Useless Horror.

The never-ending news cycle depicting every aspect of the terrorist act committed in Aurora, Colorado serves no purpose but to horrify the citizenry and make them feel helpless. I suppose I should amend that statement, the terrorist act does serve a purpose for left-leaning politicians who feel that the peasants would be better off if disarmed. Or, is it the ruling the class who is better off if the peasants are disarmed?

Useless Horror
Is it cold or crass to refer to the incessant media coverage as Useless Horror? I think not. What use, other than to boost woefully low television ratings, does the story serve? Will the talking heads on network TV bring in experts to offer up positive solutions? Unless the answer is civilian disarmament or to increase the ever-expanding police state the answer is sadly ‘No’.

Even a Fox News commentator hammered on the fact that the killer “…had no hunting license, no concealed carry permit…and no ties to the police or military. Yet he was in possession of a semi-automatic rifle, a tactical shotgun and two handguns…and thousands of rounds of ammunition”. The unspoken inference was why should someone with no direct ties to the police or military be allowed to possess such weapons and ammunition?

Slow-Learner Syndrome
Amidst the clamor from the left that this incident proves the need for citizens to be disarmed few have mentioned that the citizens in Aurora, Colorado were already disarmed. By local ordnance it was “unlawful to carry a concealed dangerous weapon” in Aurora. Over and over again we bear witness to the abject failure of “Gun Free Zones”. And yet, like the clinically insane, they keep doing the same thing all the while expecting different results.

The answer from the elitist, ruling class and the useful idiots in their camp is always to address criminal horror by punishing the innocent. Hundreds of thousands of lawful American gun owners are now to be punished for the acts of the lawless and cowardly.

Despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, we are treated to so-called expert advice that we must “be reasonable” and accept even greater limitations on our liberty for the empty promise of an intangible security. Whether it’s an individual city, a state, or a whole country, every time the law-abiding give up their arms they become an endless supply of victims to vermin who operate quite happily outside the law. There is no shining example of a disarmed populace that enjoys a crime-free life, it is quite the opposite.
