The NRA stands up for citizens demanding the right to carry handguns for personal protection. Regarding the Second Amendment, apparently some assembly is required:

OLDSMAR –– A 26-year old man accidentally shot himself Friday in a bathroom stall at the AMC Woodlands Square 20 in Oldsmar, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies said Nathan A. Schrage of Palm Harbor removed his gun from a concealed holster and placed it on the toilet paper dispenser at the theater on Tampa Road. When Schrage attempted to place the gun back in the holster shortly before 2 p.m., the firearm accidentally discharged a bullet and injured his hand, deputies said.

Schrage has a valid concealed-carry permit, deputies said. No other movie patrons were inside the bathroom during the shooting, deputies said. Schrage was transported to Tampa General Hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

A movie theater is definitely the place where you will need a handgun for your personal protection. You never know when the person sitting next to you will be carrying some concealed popcorn.

In this country no other organization is more concerned about child safety, and no other organization is a more diligent supporter of Second Amendment gun rights than the NRA. Let’s see how that’s working out:

The Second Amendment is the law of the land. It ensures all Americans the right to protect themselves and to look out after their own safety. So, how’s that working out?

Good news, gun fans. Being mentally ill is no longer an obstacle to purchasing a handgun. We are all so thrilled:

Despite a mother’s plea, her mentally ill daughter was sold a gun — with tragic results

She called the police. Then ATF. After that, the FBI.

Janet Delana was desperate to stop her mentally ill adult daughter from buying another handgun.

Despite Mrs. Delana’s pleas, the pawn shop sold her daughter, Colby Sue Weathers, a handgun and a box of ammunition. Pausing only to purchase cigarettes, Colby Sue went to her father’s house, where he sat watching TV, and shot him dead. Another victory for gun rights advocates.

There’s going to be  one of these every Thursday. Keep reading.

And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.

The Second Amendment gives American the right to arm themselves for the protection of their persons. Responsible citizens are ready to respond when the government fails to do its job of protecting us. How’s that working out?

Three men were wounded in the shooting at a crowded bar in Olathe on Wednesday night and one of them later died.

A barman told local media a man used racial slurs before opening fire. Two of the victims, including the deceased, are Indian.

Adam Purinton, 51, has been charged with premeditated first-degree murder and the FBI is investigating a motive.

Of course, Purinton is one of the people not allowed to possess a firearm under United States law:

“They’re shocked,” said Raymond Horspool, who lives a few houses away from Purinton, of his neighborhood’s residents. Other neighbors told him the attack “seemed out of character.”

Purinton had lived in Olathe since 1998, records show. He was known by neighbors as a low-key fixture in the community, and as a regular of Austins who was generally friendly, said Horspool.

Well… I guess my previous statement is wrong. Purinton is exactly the person permitted to own and carry a handgun. It’s interesting how that works out.

The story is not over. I have one of these every Thursday. Keep reading.

And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.

The Second Amendment protects our right, as citizens, to arm ourselves for our protection and for the protection of our property. How’s that working out?

SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — A mother is accused of driving drunk with her five children in the car and pointing a gun at a semi truck on Interstate 35.

Crystal Blancarte, 30, was arrested Wednesday and charged with five counts of child endangerment, unlawfully carrying a weapon, theft of property and driving with an invalid license.

San Marcos police were called at 4:29 p.m. for a report of a black BMW SUV whose driver had pointed a gun at a semi truck on I-35 northbound.

It is becoming ever more difficult to distinguish responsible gun owners from the other 99%.

GunDebate-MyRightToProtectMyChild

The Second Amendment ensures American citizens have the right to use firearms to protect themselves and their family, and it is heartwarming to see this right being put to good use. Take the example of a grandmother in Tennessee:

Nellums, initially identified by police as the boy’s mother, carried her grandson outside and told officers that his 3-year-old brother was playing with a gun when he dropped it and it discharged. The victim was taken to LeBonheur Children’s Hospital where he was in non-critical condition for a gunshot wound to the arm.

Nellums told police that when shots were fired at her home, she grabbed her gun from her lock box and went outside. She fired shots into the ground to scare off suspects. She then put the gun back in the lock box, but forgot to lock it. Police recovered the gun and Nellums was arrested. She will be in court Tuesday on the charge.

Americans are cautioned to be on alert in these trouble times and to keep their powder dry.
