Over 200 teachers to take concealed handgun class today in Utah.

Utah Shooting Sports Council
said it normally has a dozen teachers annually for instruction required to legally carry a concealed weapon in public places. The state's leading gun lobby decided to offer teachers the training at no charge to encourage turnout after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. 
Organisers who initially capped attendance at 200 were exceeding that number by today and scrambling to accommodate an overflow crowd.
That was fast. Turns out 2 states allow concealed carry into schools. Utah and Kansas. Not Texas? Say it ain't so! And where are all the Utah/Kansas school shootings if concealed carry on campus is so dangerous? Why are gun-free school zones like Connecticut chosen as the shooting location?

Blogger publishes interactive map of Journal employees who published map of pistol permit holders

They say that turnabout is fair play.

The Journal decided to play fast and loose with the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in the New York area in order to capitalize on the horror of the recent school shooting.

Bloggers strike back.

Jew Without A Gun - Lessons From The Los Angeles Riot

I am republishing my three-part series about the LA Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were trapped for several frightening hours. We were unarmed, helpless save for our wits. The police were conspicuously absent and the bad guys, frequently armed with heavy weapons, owned the streets. It was a defining moment in my life.

I’m reposting this series as a cautionary tale because the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre has sharpened the claws of the statist utopians, whose ultimate aim is to disarm law-abiding American citizens.

Just as Obamacare has nothing to do with health, and cap and trade has nothing to do with so-called global warming, anti-gun laws have nothing to do with saving children’s lives.

It’s just another opportunity for the left to centralize power.

Part One

Hollywood is Burning

Hollywood is on fire.

Karen and I lock every door in the house, shut tight the windows. We move through the house switching off all the lights.

Gazing from our bedroom window we watch orange flames lick at the darkness, pillars of black smoke climb into the sky. We can actually smell the acrid odor of burning rubber.

“Look how close they are,” says Karen.

“Just past La Cienega. Maybe eight blocks away.”

Karen gives me a long penetrating gaze:

“What do we do if they come here?”

My mind is racing away. The truth is we are defenseless. Unless I get crazy inventive like Dustin Hoffman in Straw Dogs.

“After this is all over,” I vow, “I’m going to buy a pistol.”

Karen says: “How about a shotgun?”

Read more here. --Worth reading, with car chase, screenwriter, Director's Guild Gala, Israeli tank driver, and Korean shop owners.
My own story from the 1992 L.A. Riots is that I was terrified. My boyfriend worked behind the counter in a gun store and drove straight to my apartment to deliver a revolver for my use. Who knew that he would arrive in a pickup truck laden with all manner of firearms stacked about 1-foot deep in the bed of the truck. Hey, what was he supposed to do, he responded. Wait for the rioters to loot the store? Uh, of course not. 

I stayed up all night sitting on the couch with that pistol in my lap, as my 2 young children slept in their bedrooms. How close did the riots come to my home? They looted my Costco.

Back From Bunni's House, The Sweetest Bunni Hutch In The World!

Yes, Bunni is as pretty as Ann Margret
I return home with my head held high because I have a closer relationship with a wonderful friend named Bunni.

And I return home with my heart dragging low, because Bunni is gravely ill.

On the bright side, Bunni is a beautiful woman, physically beautiful, with long red hair, clear pale skin, bright intelligent eyes and chiseled cheekbones.  She would still have a girlish figure, too, if her stomach were not heavy and distended with tumors. I hope the doctors can clear up the leg infection that leaves one foot redder and more swollen/painful than the other.

I expected to have the opportunity to help Bunni by getting things for her in the house and maybe even cleaning her house. Ha! Did she show me! Bunni is a consummate hostess.  Her house was already immaculately clean when I arrived. She then waited on me, bringing delicious hot tea while I lounged on her comfortable couch. And Bunni is a wonderful cook. She made a gourmet omelet for breakfast. I teased her that if she takes such good care of guests, she would have bloggers lined up down the sidewalk!

Kitteh kept an eye on me too, accompanying me around the house, and keeping watch over me as I fell asleep. After she saw me settled for the night, she went to Bunni to keep her company.

I sure wish I lived closer.

Bunni, I can't thank you enough for your fabulous hospitality and for your kind and supportive words. You are a true friend.

Liveblogging from Bunni's House

The day of my trip to visit Bunni is here! I had a great time visiting with her and Kitteh yesterday. I will go back today for another visit, depending on how Bunni recuperates from yesterday's activity.

Bunni is in good spirits, considering her condition. I am grateful that she is healthy enough today to have an out-of-town visitor like me and that we are able to spend this time together.  

As for Kitteh, I have to tell you how gorgeous she is in person. Her face is perfect. She was friendly to me the minute I walked through the door, rubbing up against my leg. She posed patiently for pictures and a video. And her coat is the softest, fluffiest cat coat I have ever felt. It feels like thick rabbit fur. 

See for yourself.

Fiscal Cliff, Oh Noes - Steven Crowder video

Michigan passes right to work legislation, Gov. Rick Snyder (R) expected to sign

Will wonders never cease. Just when the outlook for America looks darkest, as Obama's economic nuclear winter Fiscal Cliff scenario sets in, a ray of sunshine escapes from Michigan, of all places. Home of Detroit, unionized auto-worker wasteland.

Apparently, the Republican-dominated legislature yesterday passed two versions of right to work legislation in a lame duck session rapidly. This was to avoid damage to the capitol buildings of the type that happened in Madison, WI when the unions occupied buildings and destroyed public property in protest to legislation. The Michigan capitol was locked down. The proposed legislation would be impervious to public referendum, as it would be part of a million-dollar appropriations bill.

Republican Governor Rick Snyder voiced his support and pledged to sign the legislation that would give workers the opportunity to choose whether to be union members or not.

The legislation exempted public sector police and firefighters due to the dangerous nature of their work.
Right-to-work laws do not affect collective bargaining "except for taking away the union's ability to get a worker fired for not paying them (dues)," Vernuccio added.... 
Michigan State AFL-CIO President Karla Swift, in a statement posted on the United Auto Workers' website, said workers in right-to-work states make an average of $1,500 less per year and are less likely to have pensions or health care benefits. "The growth rate for right-to-work states before they adopted such policies is actually higher than the growth rate for these states after they adopted these laws," she said.
F. Vincent Vernuccio (of the Mackinac Center free market think tank) said the comparison was not a fair one. "They're comparing apples and oranges," he said. "When you factor in cost of living, workers are actually paid more in right-to-work states."
Angry union workers protested via social media.

Obama spokesman reiterated Obamas opposition to right to work laws.

Content Warning: one pic of Ann Margaret has an, er, wardrobe malfunction. Otherwise, this is a nice homage to a lovely lady. Who looks, if you believe it, like a young Amusing Bunni. I would say, having looked at Bunni's younger picture, that she most resembles a young Ann Margret.

Feinstein: "Well over 200" Threat Warnings Against Benghazi Mission

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said she has reviewed “well over 200″ threat warnings that applied to the Benghazi mission before the Sept. 11 attack that killed four Americans.

“Now, it couldn’t say at a certain time or on a certain day. There had been prior attacks. It’s well known, the attack on the British ambassador, attack on the Red Cross. They both pulled out for a period of time,” she said today on CBS’ Face the Nation.

The Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman also noted homemade improvised explosives that had been thrown over the fence in April and caused some damage to a wall, “which is not much, but it’s an indication.”
