rebuttals to "Gun Control"
The disgusting, lynch mob mentality that has arisen from the Trayvon Martin shooting case places us several notches towards race riots this summer. To the balanced observer, Zimmerman really does appear to have likely shot Martin in self defense. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and Barack Hussein Obama started babbling before all the facts were in. These collectivist droids seldom retreat from any lie ... they simply magnify it further.
If George Zimmerman is acquitted the fuse will light. Remember Rodney King? If you live in an urban environment, don't be stupid. Pay attention!
Already there have been brutal beatings of whites by blacks as "payback" for Trayvon's death. In a Maryland incident, although so far not directly related to the Trayvon Martin case, it is stretching credibility to assume that the Blacks were not powerfully motivated by the Florida incident. The leading police officer in that investigation claimed it was not a hate crime. Unbelievable.
To my knowledge, none of these attrocities has been labeled a "hate crime". Let's face it: had these acts of savagery been perpetrated by a pack of Whites on a hapless Black the sky would be falling. Special commissions, SWAT teams and aerial drones would be brought to the front, accompanied by a never-ending liberal media barrage.
By yourself, there is really nothing you can do to change the reality of this completely hypocritical situation. However, you can do certain things in the next several days that will empower YOU, should you be enmeshed somehow in the racist lunacy. No, I'm not just writing for whites or Hispanics. See JPFO' film "No Guns for Negroes".
In a recent JPFO article I advised the purchase of a pump shotgun and a hundred bucks of ammo. Total expenditure $400.
I'm going to now expand to suggestions for the second type of firearm you want to own: a "compact" 9mm pistol. Sure, we'd all like a custom big bore .45, but this article, like the previous one, lays heavily on BUDGET. That means the question of how much you get (ammo included) for what you have to spend.
The pistol you want to take a first look at is the Kel Tec pf9, ironically the same model semi-auto pistol used by George Zimmerman in the Martin shooting. (Kel Tecs are made in the USA, in Florida, so it is really no surprise that Zimmerman was legally packing one that fatal evening.) A friend of mine owns a Kel Tec pf9 and has put six hundred rounds through it with no jams. Ruger fans will praise the Ruger LC9, but I guarantee you that you will pay two hundred dollars more for that pistol ... if you can find one.
A Kel Tec will cost you somewhere in the $300 range. That leaves you a hundred bucks to spend on ammo. 9mm full metal jacket "ball" ammo is floating at about ten bucks per fifty box. Hollow point defensive rounds will cost you about a buck apiece in a box of twenty. You'll have 420 rounds of 9mm. You simply cannot beat this price unless you pack a .22 (which is still far, far better than nothing).
After you have run a hundred rounds of ball ammo through the pistol, you will load it with seven hollow points in the magazine and shoot them as fast as you can pull the trigger. If you get even one jam look for another brand of defense round. This is important. You must trust your defense round!
Again, 9mm ammo is cheap. The Kel Tec is cheap. And the pistol is very LIGHT. Lots of people have full size pistols, with very high capacity magazines, that they just don't carry because the gun simply weighs too much and is too bulky. The Kel Tec fits in your pants pocket easily. The small seven round magazines are convenient to stash in various other pockets.
If lunacy breaks out in your neighborhood, or while you are driving through an urban area you have a very significant "something" on your side.
If you live in a State that has "shall issue" concealed carry, get a permit immediately. If you are lucky enough to live in Vermont, Arizona, Alaska or Wyoming, with "Constitutional Carry" laws you are fine "packin'" right out of the gun shop door.
So, with a reliable pump shotgun, and a reliable compact pistol, you are covering a lot of ground. The pistol is added as your concealable weapon. Unless in absolute crisis situation, you will not be packing the shot gun. And if you are? You've got back up with the pistol.
Next time we'll look at the third gun you will want to own.
