    We’ve had various politicians on “both sides of the aisle” of this shithole excuse for a state attempting to go after pit bulls. Yet another reason New Mexico is a FAILED STATE. Let’s just split it down the middle, give the west half to Arizona and the east half to Texas, get it over with once and for all.

    OK, so the GOPNM might implode from the stupidity of its current state chair. How is this a problem for those not amongst that 31% of the State’s electorate?

    Who doesn’t know who Carl Brutananadilewski is?!

    I set up the group in the original post of this thread to be used in combination with the page with 75-85 people listed as members there.

    For what it’s worth, I don’t seem to be able to do away with the group, so I reset it from “public” to “secret.”

    Blog and Facebook page for the LP of Valencia County (Los Lunas, Belen, Bosque Farms, Rio Communities, Tome, Peralta, etc.)

    We don’t know of anyone in those places that’s interested in the LP of late, but we’ve got some internet infrastructure in place for them if they do pop up.

GPCGC 15 October 2016 Open Carry March

Filed under: Fun, Networking, Organizing, Politics, Preparedness, Principles, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 8:52 PM (20:52)

Yesterday, the Greater Philadelphia Chinese Gun Club held an open carry march in the middle of Downtown Philadelphia

Now the hoplophobes and victim disarmers will portray such events as death and mayhem just waiting to happen, especially when participants are carrying that “weapon of mass destruction” known as the dreaded AR-15 (cue the doom-and-gloom music at the point, OK?).

Hell, there are some who otherwise support the individual pre-existing right to own and carry weapons that decry open carry events for nonsensical reasons. I’ve even heard such inanity from some who call themselves “libertarians.”

The fact remains that open carry events like these are the gun rights movements’ version of the leatherboys in the LGBT Pride Rally. They’re not harming anyone by just being there. If you don’t like them, no one is forcing you to associate with them or even to look at them.

What they’re doing is saying with their mere presence, “I’m here, what are you going to do about it?”

But alas, the GPCGC disappointed them by NOT behaving like the rabid hyper-zombies as depicted in 28 Days Later

 

YES, there was a significant law-enforcement presence at the march, but the cops weren’t decked out in riot gear or SWAT gear –

 

 

Probably because the march participants were too busy waving signs and taking pictures of each other to be looting local stores and destroying cars?

I’m almost tempted to move back to the Philadelphia area.
