Philly to small businesses: How DARE you defend yourself with bullet-proof glass!

December 08th, 2017 by Bookslinger

A Philadelphia city council committee wants small businesses to remove safety glass. Vote pending by whole council.


The reporter conflates a couple different issues, so I’m unsure if the real issue is the bullet-resistant plastic windows, or a licensing issue about selling individual cans of beer, and how the 30 seat threshhold figures in.  Snippet: (more…)

Hat tip to Ben Carson’s #iamaChristian.

October 03rd, 2015 by Bookslinger

Generally, I don’t like to jump on memes and follow a crowd.  I don’t like fads. I don’t like cheap shows of support or solidarity. If I participate in a meme, it has to be something I already believe in, and it has to be something that I can sincerely encourage others to do that is also for their good.  

‘Sides, being a “witness for Christ at all times and in all places”  is a good thing. In the gospel, actions are required in addition to words, but words are still required as part of testimony and witness.

I don’t know if Ben Carson started the #IamaChristian meme/tag, but his photo seems to be in the news. (more…)

I want to learn how to do this.

The frame-rate of the security video isn’t high enough to see the move in detail. But maybe I’ll consult with a martial arts instructor.

It’s an amazing presence of mind and confidence on the part of the intended victim. It had to have been a practiced skill. “If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear.”

A straight-talkin’ law man.

January 27th, 2013 by Bookslinger

This sheriff, in Milwaukee Wisconsin of all places, makes sense.

A Wisconsin sheriff has stirred controversy this week after releasing a radio ad urging Milwaukee-area residents to learn to handle firearms so they can defend themselves while waiting for police.

In the 30-second commercial, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. says due to law enforcing cutbacks, personal safety is no longer a spectator sport.

‘I need you in the game,’ he says.

More, with video, and 30 second radio ad/PSA.

Bringing a sword to a gun fight.

August 20th, 2012 by Bookslinger

This was not a corporate-owned store, but rather a family-owned franchise.

I hope they publish the security-camera video if there was one.

I Shot Him as Much as I Could

May 23rd, 2011 by Pecos Bill

I kin count on one hand the number a times I had a shootout in the shower. It’s a durn unusual tactical sitchieation. Plinkin’ away with a .22 ain’t a bad choice.

Walmart fires victim of felony assault

January 11th, 2010 by Vader

For defending himself.

I have a friend who runs the local grocery and calls Walmart “the Evil Empire.” Maybe he’s right.

But my experience is that there is considerable variation in how well individual Walmart stores are managed. Maybe this is just an egregiously bad one.

Bad Publicity

April 01st, 2009 by Man SL

I understand why Big Crime and their fat-cat publicists would push this sort of thing, but I have to think their advertisement will backfire with the public, who are, after all, a bunch of racists. They should have used a white criminal.
