Some More Info on Thousand Oaks

Considering the MSM, this isn’t a terribly anti-gun article. At the only gun shop in Thousand Oaks, fearful residents decide it’s time to buy a gun.

I stopped writing about mass shootings, because immediately after an event it is all speculation. Well, that and the Democrats doing the Gun-control Dance. But this article had some information that I find interesting.

Overall this is an interview with a gun-store owner and some of his customers on a given day. With a few quotes from a guy who runs training at a nearby range.

As new customers cycled through the store, the constant chatter—besides general expressions of hatred for the shooter—was about the six unarmed, off-duty law enforcement officers who were reportedly at the bar during the shooting. Their lack of weapons was a presumed consequence of a California law barring firearms in bars.

Six members of law-enforcement disarmed for everyone’s protection by the Democratic legislature/governor of California. How’s that working out for you?

The other piece of info that is completely expected – the neighbors are shocked to discover that they do live in the Real World™ where crime can, and sometimes does, happen.

Residents have long regarded this city as a serene little community forty miles away from the crime and blight of Los Angeles. But the shooting this week drove home a creeping feeling that the outside world is encroaching on Thousand Oaks.

The guy from the training center had a few words about the “closeted, gun-owning liberals” who would NEVER admit to being an evil gun-owner to their liberal friends. Because gun-owners are evil in the eyes of the liberals.

The reporter ends with a quote from a 12-year-old (who wasn’t in the store, but was skating around the parking lot).

He chimed in with his opinion on gun control. “No matter how hard they make it to get a gun, they’re going to get one,” Ethan said. “I’m a kid and I don’t know anything but I know that.”

Segregation of the Sexes Comes to Sweden

Because coed music festivals are not safe. Women cheer as Sweden’s man-free music festival kicks off.

Matilda Hagerman laughs with her friends as she queues at a man-free music festival, which kicked off in Sweden on Friday in protest against a wave of sexual assaults at festivals in recent years.

Think about that last part of the quote: “in recent yeas.” It’s almost like something changed in the past few years.

This seems like a victory for Sharia. Because the authorities don’t want to be xenophobic, they ignored attacks at first, then down-played them, but in the end did nothing concrete. And so spaces are now segregating for safety.

Knyckare told AFP that the MeToo wave exposing sexual assault unveiled “serious problems” in Sweden, one of the most gender equal nations in the world, at not only festivals but several institutions.

This is The Local. They are so far to the Left they can’t see the center anymore. So while they talk about “safe spaces” they don’t mention when those safe spaces became necessary, or any of the attacks from previous festivals – only in the abstract.

So is this progress, or a massive step backwards?

Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed Back At It

Turns out the ruling against Defense Distributed said he couldn’t give the file away indiscriminately. So he will sell them. Man Behind 3D Gun Files Spoils The Left’s Celebration Over Ban With Major Announcement.

“This judge’s order, stopping us from simply giving things away, was only an authorization that we could sell it, that we could mail it, that we could email it, that we could provide it by secure transfer. I will be doing all of those things, now,” announced Wilson.

Proceeds from the files will go for legal fees.

You can get all your 3D printer files (and other files) at DEFCAD.COM, where you can also buy 80% lowers and a Ghost Gunner.

The 30-year-old said he’s “happy now to become the iTunes of downloadable guns if I can’t be the Napster,” but added that it was somewhat “regrettable” that state attorneys general drove him into the commercial space.

Citizens Must OBEY The Police Or Be Destroyed

The previous posting wasn’t the only instance of cops shooting law-abiding citizens. Battlefield America: The Ongoing War on the American People.

This is what a state of undeclared martial law looks like, when you can be arrested, tasered, shot, brutalized and in some cases killed merely for not complying with a government agent’s order or not complying fast enough.

The linked article has a litany of incidents involving police shooting/tasering/brutalizing people because they could not OBEY fast enough.

James Madison warned about the dangers of a standing army. The police have become that militarized force, in some cases terrorizing the citizens, in some cases killing them with immunity. (So-called limited immunity, which never seems to be too limited.)

You can see that previous post at this link.

Which Party Is All About Violence?

A big hint should be all those guys running around in masks. Democrats: The Party of Hate.

The Left doesn’t disagree with the Right. The Left hates and wants to destroy the Right.

This is what your friend or relative who votes for Democrats is actually voting for — political violence against anyone who disagrees with them, so that Democrats are free to commit assault in the name of “social justice,” to deny the constitutional rights of citizens who vote Republican.

This is in relation to an incident in California, but the attitude – giving a free pass to folks who commit violence against Republicans – is not limited to California.

Thank an Educator

First Amendment Rights SurveySince “Educators” are the reason there’s so little education. Shock Survey: 40% Of Americans Cannot Name A Single Right Guaranteed By The First Amendment. (Clicking the image will take you to the linked article. Then you need to age down.)

Because if you know what your rights are, you might be willing to defend them. But if you don’t know, then you won’t just stand in line when they want to abridge free speech, outlaw guns, have unreasonable searches (for a good reason!), and accept the unlimited expansion of government power.

When asked to name the freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment, only one person was able to name all five. 2% of respondents were able to name the right to petition the government for redress of grievances; 12% were able to name the right of peaceful assembly; 13% were able to name freedom of the press; 15% were able to name freedom of religion; and 56% were able to name freedom of speech.

40% got everything wrong.

Do you think this is just an unfortunate turn of events? Hardly. Destroying knowledge of what this country stands for is a key part of the strategy for destroying this country. “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action.” ― Ian Fleming. (Hat tip to Weasel Zippers.)

Defense Distributed And Legal Action

In what was a completely expected reaction by the Left, Defense Distributed was ordered by a judge in “Western Washington” (How deep blue is Seattle?) to have the data on 3D printing guns, that was on the site, taken down.

While I tried to parse how I feel, I think the best response is just to post a link to how you can help support the legal action to restore both our First and Second Amendment rights. Join DD Today.

LEGIO is Defense Distributed’s political and technical fraternity; the primary sponsor of our research and development. Legionnaires do more than “protect” the Second Amendment. They fund its direct, material expansion with Defense Distributed.

Because nothing scares the Left so much as Liberty.
