How Soon Before the Colanders and Autogyros?

New Yorkers are dumpster diving for food. Manhattan residents are increasingly concerned about safety. Meanwhile, guns are being drawn on fellow citizen in New Jersey (I don’t know how this happens, they have such strict gun laws).

Do you think perhaps the people of New Jersey and New York may stop for a moment and decide whether it might be beneficial to make it easier for good people to protect themselves? Ever notice how no state that is prone to getting hurricanes have particularly strict gun laws?

    Ummm, you mean other than North Carolina?

    Florida you have to hide your pistol as if it is something to be ashamed of.

      North Carolina and Florida’s gun laws are nothing compared to New York and New Jersey, or any of the New England states that aren’t VT, NH or ME.

        Pre- Bateman vs Purdue, you couldn’t carry a gun during a state of emergency in NC.

    No autogyros. The Lord Bloomungus says they cause global warming.

  3. Actual Facebook post from a good friend who just managed to travel from her job (she works at a veterinary hospital) back to her apartment in Harlem:

    “Oh dear god this city is bonkers. Honestly kids, be safe. It’s getting a bit crazypants out there.”

    Haven’t managed to get through to her to get the lowdown but she’s been living there for many years and not much fazes her other than having only the Cold Steel folder I gave her rather than the firearms that she has to store at her parents home in PA.

  4. And meanwhile Bloomberg is more concerned with endorsing Obama and talking about global climate change.

    According to the report I read:

    The people are involved in fist-fights; the POLICE are drawing guns to stop the fights.

    No. At least not for now. The Anti-gun culture is now so pervasive that I do no not think that the anti-gun left will protect gun owners.

    There really aren’t many good people in NYC anyway. I hope they get zombies.

    • Scott says:

      Dude, 8-12 million zombies will not be good for the rest of the nation.

      I get the sentiment though, and I live here.

    Heard somewhere in the military that even civilized people are just 7 or 8 meals from anarchy. The subtext was then Yugoslavia and what those good people turned into.

    I know we all like to talk a good prep game. The fact those NYC people have no pouches of tuna fish or chicken laying around is an exercise in denial.

    That acknowledged, I’ll say it again: if you are a city dweller, then your “prepping” is limited to finding ways out of the city and going somewhere else. Staying is not an option. The rest of us in the hinterland…we got options. But even with vastly more options that an urban dweller, I got my limits. At some point, the family and I are outta here.

    During the tornados last year, guy tried to loot a gas station here in HSV. Owner was waiting inside and caught the guy in the face with a load of 00 Buckshot.

    A reporter from our local rag asked if there would be an investigation. The police chiefs answer was “Investigate what? The guy was somewhere he shouldn’t have been and paid for it. If you don’t want to get shot, don’t loot.”
