Obviously the little guy didn’t figure these techniques out on his own… interesting nevertheless:

You can read the full story at forbes, and check out Marc Tobias’ Youtube Channel for lots more videos on the topic.

Calling these “Safes” as the article does is actually a misnomer, because these are obviously more like “lock boxes”.  The 2003 Vancouver, WA accidental (negligent?) self inflicted shooting of the 3 year old was terrible, but no matter what the official report says I’m still skeptical that the gun wasn’t accidentally left out in the open where the kid saw it.  I’m sure the fact that the “safe failed” means no criminal charges, whereas admitting to leaving the gun out probably amounts to criminal negligence?  A terrible thing for the family to live with either way.

If you want to see more yet on the topic, check out a previous post I made on hacking firearm lock boxes from a past DEFCON hacking conference in Las Vegas.

A DHS-funded video gives tips to survive a shooter:

As far as I’m concerned it’s all valid advice, BUT… they never even mention firearms as a valid means of defense.  Seems like meeting an aggressor that has a gun WITH a gun would be the most valid option.  Oh wait… you’re supposed to wait for the tactical response team with guns to plan and enter 30 minutes later right? *eye roll*

Just use a piece of shit lunchroom chair or a fire extinguisher to incapacitate the guy LOL.  Yea, because that’s worked so often in the history of active shooters.

Keith points out the reason for this stupidity at the 1:00 mark.  This video was filmed in Houston, TX and like many locations scattered throughout the country they like to disarm people for no particular reason:

I think i’m going to register in a Tactical Fire Extinguisher course, or maybe get my Open Chair Carry Permit.  You know… just in case.

VigilantSpectre makes an “Official Statement”:

Our official stance toward the endo blog is that its author knows little about firearms. He is a safety nazi drone that probably stores his weapons locked and unloaded. He craves attention and receives it by perpetuating falsehoods on the material that he fails to understand. He does not grasp reality, is a poster child for the brady campaign, and as far as we are concerned is not to be paid attention. We also consider the trolls that frequent that blog to be lumped in with the author.

That was from the comments on their latest youtube video.  Priceless…

Keep DERP alive in the gun community guys…. keep it alive…

I believe with VigilantSpectre we stumbled upon one of those rare cases of a group that is so dumb, they actually think they are smart.

Hopefully one day i’ll be able to understand the point of your videos.  That’s what you’re all about right?  Education?

Now if you’ll excuse me I have a lot of work ahead of me drafting some new Assault Weapons Ban verbiage for upcoming Brady Campaign speeches.  Oh shit, that slipped out…

When life gives you no money for a real holster:

You have to improvise.  This got me thinking… with the right type of flip flop you could have a ghetto NY Reload holster.  If you can’t steal one of your wife/girlfriend’s flip flops then hit up payless and cop a pair. This will either give you a backup holster to have on hand in case the 1st one breaks… or better yet carry 4 guns and call it a Detroit Reload setup.




There is so much bad information in this video:

When O’Reilly got worked up the first time, I was just wishing that guy he was talking to was going to say “U MAD hahha that would have been priceless.

60,000 rounds LOLOL OMG…

The man speaks from his ivory tower surrounded by armed guards:

I don’t understand why the police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say we’re going to go on strike, we’re not going to protect you unless you the public, through your legislature do what’s require to keep us safe. -Michael Bloomberg

For a second there I was hoping Bloomberg came to his senses and was going to finish his sentence with “Unless you the public learn how to protect yourselves”.  That would have made more sense…
