Guns And Torts

BY Herschel Smith
6 days, 13 hours ago

Via Eugene Volokh.

Like Secretary Clinton, the supporters of the bills put before Congress to repeal PLCAA argue that no other industry enjoys the legal shield that the gun industry does — giving as counter-examples firms such as auto companies, pharmaceutical drug companies and even tobacco companies.

They are right to some extent …. [But] would there be widespread tort liability for gun companies were both PLCAA and state pre-emption laws all repealed?

The central argument I will put forward is that it is not easy to find good examples from other important industries of defendants being held liable for the sorts of cases that gun victim plaintiffs would like to win.

Take the motor vehicle accident problem. It is well understood that car companies make vehicles intended to be sold to ordinary drivers that are capable of going more than 100 miles per hour even though that is well more than the maximum road speed allowed. Surely the car companies know that some owners regularly drive faster than, say, 75 miles per hour and cause accidents because of their speeding. Product liability law today generally requires product makers to take into account foreseeable product misuse.

Does this make cars involved in very high speed crashes defectively designed? Although there is something appealing about this idea, I don’t see successful cases being brought on this theory, and given the record so far I’d be surprised if they were successful.

Next, I imagine that in today’s high-tech world motor vehicles could be engineered so that (perhaps absent an emergency) they could not be driven faster than the posted speed limit on the road on which they are currently travelling (and I assume that self-driving cars currently have and will continue to have this feature). Does the failure to include this speed-control function in all of today’s new motor vehicles make them defective so that the manufacturer would be liable in tort to victims of drivers whose speeding (at any speed) causes accidents? This too is an appealing idea, but I don’t see such cases.

It’s only appealing if you’re a nanny-state control freak.  As for cars engineered with governors, don’t give the progressives any more ideas for things they can regulate.

I’ll just remark one more time that the free-for-all hippie culture –love, peace and feel-good – which made its living complaining about signs and other such rules, believed in absolutely nothing and held to no morals or scruples.  Their empty minds became vessels for the poison fed to them, and within short order (one generation), the generation of free wheeling liberty became the cabal of controllers.

The sons and daughters of hippies are nanny-state, government-worshipping control freaks searching for the next thing to regulate so they can bring ubiquitous sameness and monolithic utopia to the world.

What The Main Stream Media Will Never Show Or Tell You About Antifa

The group’s website also seeks to abolish of gender and calls for its members to steal tools and lands so that it can build its own state, independent of the United States.  RAM also plans to build local “defense teams” and councils as well as national councils.

The group models its movement on the far left Rojava Revolution in Syria, and praises communism as providing a “foundation in communal and council based political organization and militant defense.”

A website video rife with anarchy and violence heavily hints at an armed revolution to destroy the government.

One of my commenters, Fred, said this.

I’m not a fan of genocide so this has my attention. The fact that I appear to be on the menu for genocide has my undivided attention. It should be noted that both the right and the left want Christians gone so I’m back to neutral. Events may dictate any number of things. If either side wants to hang me on a cross so be it but I ain’t nailing myself to it. People are going die, lot’s of people. As you and many commenters here have noted, Jesus was not pacifist pussy.

These guys will eventually be arrested – all of them.  They are nothing more than the shock troops for the deep state, just like the Sturmabteilung, and the Night of the Long Knives will come for them too.  But it behooves us to be paying attention to the cold winds, just like Fred.

The Republicans And Democrats Are The Deep State

BY Herschel Smith
3 weeks, 6 days ago

Via WRSA, Brent Bozell:

There is no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Put them together. They are the swamp.

Just as Republicans have the power to enact the agenda they’ve pledged in toto, so too do they now own the federal government, in toto. It’s no longer Obamacare. It’s GOPcare. It’s no longer crazy liberal Democratic spending. It’s crazy liberal Republican spending. It’s no longer socialist Democratic Party taxation, it’s socialist Republican Party taxation. All the legislation authorizing all these programs, all the graft, all the waste, all the obscenity, all the immorality, and where Planned Parenthood is concerned, all the killing — all of it is now formally authored by the Republican Party.

Ayup.  Nailed it.  And yet the GOP goes blithely along, thinking that all will be well.  Collapse is coming, a collapse in civility, a collapse of the economy, a collapse of order, and a collapse of liberty when the deep state begins to sense that it is losing control of things.

Be prepared.

The Erasure Of The Southern Heritage

BY Herschel Smith
1 month, 1 week ago

Roy Cooper has called for the removal of Confederate monuments on North Carolina state property.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper says Confederate monuments “should come down” and wants the legislature to repeal a law preventing state and local governments from removing them permanently and limiting their relocation.

In a message posted Tuesday on the website Medium, Cooper said North Carolina “cannot continue to glorify a war against the United States of America fought in the defense of slavery.”

This is worth a bit of discussion.  Before the war between the states, the understanding that it was a war “against the United States of America” presupposes the outcome of the war.  Or in other words, membership is said states was seen as the right of association, and secession was seen as the exercise of that right.

Furthermore, no one I know who really understands the war between the states thinks that it was fought over slavery.  In order to understand the thinking at the time, one must understand that slavery was on its way out, would not have lasted, and was effectively obsolete given industrialization.

My now-deceased professor, Dr. C. Gregg Singer, could quote sermons from R. L. Dabney and James Henley Thornwell virtually from memory, as well as many lesser known pastors in the South.  None of the discussions at the time had to do with preserving slavery, but they all pointed to whether the states could allow a centralized government to dictate to them much of anything seen as rightfully under the control of the states.

The notion that the war between the states was fought “in defense of slavery” is nothing more than virtue-signaling by Cooper, or else he is an idiot.  Reverence to confederate monuments has to do with a philosophy of decentralized government, not slavery, smaller government, not more control, reverence for time-honored institutions, and liberty from a quarrelsome, meddlesome government and ruling class.

Roy Cooper’s project in North Carolina won’t be the last you see of this.  Stone Mountain is next, and then CNN has an entire list of monuments they think need to come down, essentially all of them.  This is a war against what America was, and what the progressives want it to become, with the skirmishes (and ultimately the larger battles to come) being so much the better because it justifies more state control for the purpose of safety, security and stability.  You can see law enforcement in the role of national stability operations as we speak, and even aiding and assisting the transition.  The police will never say there isn’t a need for greater stability.

Now, enter the fake-conservative Rich Lowry, at National Review.

… his statue is now associated with a campaign of racist violence against the picturesque town where Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia. The statue of Lee was already slated for removal by the city, but the Battle of Charlottesville should be an inflection point in the broader debate over Confederate statuary.

The monuments should go. Some of them simply should be trashed; others transmitted to museums, battlefields, and cemeteries. The heroism and losses of Confederate soldiers should be commemorated, but not in everyday public spaces where the monuments are flashpoints in poisonous racial contention, with white nationalists often mustering in their defense.

[ … ]

For supporters of the Confederate monuments, removing them from parks and avenues will be a blow against their heritage and historical memory. But the statues have often been part of an effort to whitewash the Confederacy. And it’s one thing for a statue to be merely a resting place for pigeons; it’s another for it to be a fighting cause for neo-Nazis.

I have nothing to do with neo-Nazis, and my knowledge of the culture of the South, the lead up to the war between the states, and how my brethren in the South see their station in life now far surpasses anything Lowry could muster.  He’s just virtue-signaling as well, just like Cooper.  The good news for him is that this seals his place in the Cocktail parties in the beltway.  He can continue to drink with his progressive buddies in peace and respect.

The bracing news for the rest of us is that this battle is coming our way, and no one has the stomach to tell the truth about things, certainly not the fake conservatives inside the beltway or in Northeast.  Monuments are just that, symbols.  They are important symbols to be sure, but in the end they are still just symbols.  What’s significant is that they represent the first fruits of the war against Southern and conservative culture.  The progressives won’t stop with symbols.

Asset Forfeiture And Seizure Is Immoral

BY Herschel Smith
4 months, 2 weeks ago

Courthouse News Service:

A Cleveland security guard claims in court that the city has refused to return his guns that were used as evidence after he shot and killed a home invader, even though the case against the intruder’s accomplice is over.

Brian Bridges sued the City of Cleveland, Mayor Frank Jackson and Police Chief Calvin Williams on Thursday in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas, alleging violations of his Second and Fourth Amendment rights.

In March 2015, Bridges came home to find two men robbing his house. During the ensuing confrontation, Bridges fatally shot one of the invaders, Joseph Eason.

“The shooting was in self defense and was justifiable,” Bridges’ lawsuit states.

The other suspect, Anthony Akins-Daniels, escaped, but he was eventually found and arrested. He pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter for causing the death of his “best friend,” Eason.

Bridges claims Cleveland police unlawfully seized his property, “including a Glock 21 semiautomatic handgun, ammunition, holsters and a redcherry piccolo,” to be used as evidence in Akins-Daniels’ case.

Despite the fact that the criminal proceedings against Akins-Daniels are over, police have not returned Bridges’ guns, he says.

Bridges noted in his complaint that he is a professional security guard and has a license to carry a concealed handgun.

He sued for replevin and violation of the Second and Fourth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

Bridges seeks $20,000 in compensatory damages and $50,000 in punitive damages. He also wants an injunction to stop the city from “enforcing any policy and/or actions that infringe upon a lawful gun owner’s right to keep and bear arms.”

The temptation of any attorney is to play up the ideas that (a) he’s a “guard,” he (b) has a permit, and (c) he was exonerated.

None of those things matter.  What matters is that asset forfeiture and seizure, even if supported by existing laws, are immoral.  They reek of royal ownership of personal property, and thus don’t even consider that a war was fought over just such things.

The owners of property, even if convicted in court, should get a chance to sell their property, give it to their family, or otherwise dispose of it in any way they deem appropriate.  It’s theirs.  Their property doesn’t belong to the state, to the king or queen, or to society at large.

This is one reason I oppose the modern concept of incarceration, as well as the notion and phrase that any man has a “debt to society” that must be paid.  No man has a debt to society.  If he has stolen he has a debt to the victim.  If he murders, rapes or kidnaps, he should be put to death.

Here’s a quick note to lawmakers everywhere.  Get rid of asset forfeiture and seizure laws.  Men’s property isn’t yours.  It doesn’t belong to you.

Army Secretary Nominee Senator Mark Green Withdraws

BY Herschel Smith

He seems like a good, decent and honorable man.

Tennessee state Sen. Mark Green (R), President Donald Trump’s nominee for Army secretary, strongly believes that citizens should be armed ― and not just with any ol’ guns. They should be able to possess whatever weapons the military has, because an armed citizenry is the “ultimate checks and balances” against the federal government.

“The Second Amendment, while it allows citizens to protect themselves from other citizens, goes well beyond just allowing us to defend ourselves from a criminal,” Green said at a pro-gun rally in 2013.

“The men who penned and ratified this document gave us the right to keep and bear arms as an ultimate checks and balances against the federal government,” he added. “When considering magazine size and weapon type, comments like, ‘You don’t need a 10-round magazine to hunt deer’ completely misses the point of the Second Amendment.”

[ … ]

The Tennessee state senator also said that “the citizenry should be allowed to maintain whatever weapon the federal government has. If they can have an aircraft carrier, I ought to be able to have an aircraft carrier.”

He has withdrawn his name.

President Donald Trump’s choice for Army secretary withdrew his nomination Friday after mounting criticism over past statements he made about gays and lesbians, Muslims and other groups.

Mark Green, a Republican Tennessee state senator from Clarksville, pulled his name from consideration in a short statement Friday afternoon that said his nomination had become a distraction “due to false and misleading attacks against me.”

His decision came before confirmation hearings had even started for the West Point graduate and former Army medic — just four weeks after Trump picked him for the post.

“Tragically, my life of public service and my Christian beliefs have been mischaracterized and attacked by a few on the other side of the aisle for political gain,” Green said. “While these attacks have no bearing on the needs of the Army or my qualifications to serve, I believe it is critical to give the president the ability to move forward with his vision to restore our military to its rightful place in the world.

“Camie and I look forward to finding other opportunities to use our gifts to serve others and help make America great again.”

Once again, he seems like a very good, very decent and very honorable man.  I wish he were president instead of the jerk we’ve got who apparently wouldn’t fight the good fight to get him confirmed.  When I think of the Senate and House I think of a gaggle of demons, gargoyles and pit vipers, or perhaps the consortium of pigs in “Animal Farm.”

Color me unsurprised that Trump didn’t want to fight for him.  Color me unsurprised that the collectivists and God-haters wanted him defeated.  And color me unsurprised that he was gracious in his withdrawal.  Again, he seems like a very good, very decent and very honorable man.

Redneck Revolt Does Guns?

David Codrea:

“Gun-Totin’ Left-Wingers Demonstrate at the Arizona Capitol,” Phoenix New Times notes sympathetically. “Is Bloodshed on the Horizon?”

It’s a report about “openly armed to the proverbial teeth” supporters of the Phoenix John Brown Gun Club, self-described as “Working to stem the tide of reactionary recruitment within white working class communities, fight white supremacy, & build liberatory community defense.” That, in turn, references to Redneck Revolt (“Putting the RED back in redneck”).

Basically, their “philosophy” is communist and globalist, against private property, capitalism and sovereign nations.

Go read the rest of David’s article here.

I had seen this too and was planning on commenting on it, but I’ll dovetail my comments with David’s.  They are also self-described anarchists.  Anarchists my ass.  They are toting a few guns.  They got there by riding some vehicle, whether bus, car, or hippie van.  Those guns were made by gunsmiths who use lathes and programmable tool and die shops, and those vehicles are made somewhere by machinists and robots.  You’re only an anarchist if you reject all of that.  What they are is a bunch of hypocrites.  They are just pretend anarchists.  Like the rock and roll group who sings about the evils of “the man” and then hops on board the jet made by aerodynamics engineers to fly to the next concert.  Hey, here’s a note to the anarchists.  Find your own culture and leave mine the hell alone.  You’re not wanted.

It’s worse than that.  Take a look at this picture.

I see a gaggle of fat girls, hipsters and college drop-outs.  What do you see?  Do you have anything more scary than that, girls?

Anyway, all of that said I see no reason why, if they ever obtained power, these boys and girls wouldn’t want total control over every aspect of our lives, which is always the reflexive tendency of collectivists and state-worshipers.  And I see no reason they wouldn’t inflict pain as a means to their desired ends.

They should remember Herschel’s Dictum.  And that it doesn’t have to be with a .45 230-grain fat boy.  It can be with something a lot faster than that.

The Wheels Are Coming Off The Coverup: Note To FBI Agents, Now Is The Time To Come Forward

BY Herschel Smith

By now you’re aware that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes said that Trump transition team was under surveillance.  He was polite.  He said it was “inadvertent.”  We all know better.  He’s handing out bits and pieces of information in order to bait the field.

Meanwhile, I haven’t linked George Webb for a while but he’s still active.  He uses the Awan brothers to launch into a plea for more FBI agents to come forward with what they know about any number of things, from human organ harvesting to drug trafficking, from illegal surveillance to disclosure to unauthorized individuals.

George also paints a huge target on Andrew McCabe, which we all know needed to be painted.  For McCabe, listen carefully.  The grim reaper is calling.  Do you hear him?  He’s calling for you by name.  But I would add that unless Comey is fired and investigated, the deep state wins.  The Trump administration has not truly started unless and until Comey is replaced and investigated.  If Trump leaves him in place, I question whether he actually wants to be president.

Idaho Boy Sprayed By Cyanide Planted By U.S. Department Of Agriculture, Dog Killed

BY Herschel Smith
6 months, 1 week ago


POCATELLO, ID – The family of a teenage boy sprayed by a cyanide explosive that killed their dog is outraged they weren’t told the device was planted near their home, reports East Idaho News.

Canyon Mansfield, 14, went on a walk Thursday afternoon with his family’s 3-year-old yellow Labrador, Casey, on a hill behind their Pocatello home on Buck Skin Road.

“I see this little pipe that looked like a sprinkler sticking out of the ground,” Canyon told “I go over and touch it. Then it makes a pop sound and it spews orange gas everywhere.”

The orange gas was cyanide, and it sprayed into Canyon’s left eye and on his clothing.

The teen grabbed some snow and washed his eye out but then realized Casey was having problems.

“I look over and see him having a seizure,” Canyon said, holding back tears. “I ran over and he had these glassy eyes. He couldn’t see me, and he had this red stuff coming out of his mouth.”

Canyon ran down the hill and inside the house to his mother.

“He said, ‘Mom, Mom, there’s something wrong with Casey,’” Theresa Mansfield recalled. “We ran back outside and up the hill and by the time we got there, Casey had died.”

Theresa called the police and then contacted her husband, Mark, who is a medical doctor.

“I hurried home, and the first thing I did was try to resuscitate the dog,” Mark Mansfield said. “Unfortunately I exposed myself to cyanide and had no idea.”

It took hours after emergency crews arrived and help from multiple agencies to learn Casey had died from exposure to an M-44.

M-44s are spring-activated devices that release cyanide when they are activated through upward pressure or pulling. The US Department of Agriculture uses the devices to control coyotes and other predators.

“We didn’t know anything about it. No neighborhood notifications and our local authorities didn’t know anything about them,” Mark said. “The sheriff deputies who went up there didn’t even know what a cyanide bomb was.”

The Mansfields have lived in their home nearly 10 years and have never seen M-44s in their neighborhood. They say the one triggered Thursday was planted on the borderline of their property.

“We weren’t aware, and nobody told us,” Theresa said. “There was nothing posted up on the hill saying to beware or be careful.”

There shouldn’t have had to be notifications, as this should never have been done to begin with by the Department of Agriculture.  So boys and girls, I’ve seen a lot of dumb ass things by the government in my years, but this one takes the cake.  Let me introduce you to the most idiotic government program ever concocted by mankind.  Spring-activated cyanide bombs as a part of the war on animals paid for by your tax dollars.

This is bad, bad solution in search of a problem.  Here is a list of effective Coyote control devices, in order: 5.56mm / .223, .22 WMR, and 17 HMR (if you don’t want to shoot anything larger such as you would with a mule deer or moose).  As for federal government, you withdraw from any program like this, let the states handle their own animal control issues and make decisions when a herd, pack, drove or flock needs to be culled, and the state makes an announcement about renewed or extended hunting season so that the states can conduct scientific game management and herd control techniques with tags and bag limits.

If this even needs to occur.  Good Lord!  These are indigenous creatures, predatory of course, but there are many predatory animals in this part of the nation.  The state should be able to figure out quite well what needs to be done, if anything.  Automatic poison ejection devices aren’t even legal in warfare according to the Geneva convention.  Yet for some reason, bureaucrats and Forestry majors on the government dole and paid for by your tax dollars can decide to poison animals without so much as consultation with anyone around them.

I wish this family would consult a lawyer and seek remedy in court for this against the Department of Agriculture, but my guess is that any federal court would tip their hat to government employees and grant them immunity from prosecution of any kind.  Yet these are the sort of “intolerable acts” that caused our founders to separate from England.  I’ll write the Department of Agriculture and ask what statutory framework even allows this.  I doubt I will get a response.

In this case, the least we should justifiably expect would be to gut this worthless government department, deliver pink slips to them, and send them packing to find real jobs.  That something so simple got so out of hand is a tragic testimony to how out of touch and out of control the federal government is.  What could have been handled by hunters with pleasure and sport, perhaps with their own sons, redounded to a little boy being poisoned and his childhood dog being killed.

Good Lord.

Your Tax Dollars At Work: Producing Anti-Gun Myths And Propaganda

BY Herschel Smith
6 months, 1 week ago

There’s nothing quite like having to fund your enemies, is there?  Listen to U.S. District Court Judge Walter H. Rice.

I think open carry (and concealed-carry) laws, with all due deference to the Second Amendment, which I support…are dangerous to any community because of the epidemic of mental health issues throughout this country,” he said. “Putting guns in the hands of mentally incompetent people is a recipe for disaster.”

Lies.  And the only mentally incompetent person around here is you, judge Rice.  You moron.

Next up is a local politician – the top cop in Pelham – and I do refer to him as a politician, speaking out against constitutional carry in Alabama.

Palmer said the passage of the bill would require him to sit down and reevaluate the way Pelham Police Department conducts traffic stops.

“It puts the public and police officers at risk,” Palmer said.  “I believe in the second amendment for law abiding citizens.  I’m not trying to take away anybody’s rights.  I’m just trying to keep handguns out of the possession of criminals.”

Oh horse shit.  You know better than that.  The current system does absolutely nothing to ensure what you said, and I just think you’re whining about the loss of revenue.

So go ahead and sit down (or stand up) and have that conversation with your cops.  You shouldn’t be worrying over whether someone has a concealed handgun permit during stops or not.  That’s a false indication of your safety.

I’m tired of spending my hard-earned dollars so that government employees can concoct lies.
