With a song even:

The list in question:

  1. Be realistic about your ability to protect yourself.
  2. Your instinct may be to scream, go ahead!  It may startle your attacker and give you an opportunity to run away.
  3. Kick off your shoes if you have time and can’t run in them.
  4. Don’t take time to look back; just get away.
  5. If your life is in danger, passive resistance may be your best defense.
  6. Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating.
  7. Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.
  8. Yelling, hitting or biting may give you a chance to escape, do it!
  9. Understand that some actions on your part might lead to more harm.
  10. Remember, every emergency situation is different.  Only you can decide which action is most appropriate.

ENDO rape prevention list:

  1. Shoot rapist.

Keep Calm And Carry One T-Shirt

Girls please just Keep Calm And Carry One, that’s the best measure.  I actually really don’t see why there was such a big deal made about the original list, besides the fact that rape is understandably a touchy subject.  As far as I can tell, the point of the list was basically “get away, or try and stop it by grossing your attacker out.”  I remember hearing tips like that for years and although I don’t pretend to know the dynamics of that type of situation, it seems to me like a woman’s options are quite limited if they are not armed.

Thoughts?

I believe that right is protected by Amendments 2 and 3.1415926:

UPDATE: Oh Snap! An even more hilarious video where everyone has guns:

LOL @ StudentsForGunFreeSchools.org  If I was still in university i’d “get involved” and become a campus leader just to troll them from the inside.

I really don’t see the problem with video #2. All the guns were aimed at the one guy that started it all… isn’t that what the police would do if they were there?

I love how their slogan is “Armed with knowledge not guns”.  Wouldn’t the knowledge we gained from incidents like Virginia Tech suggest that guns are the quickest way to end a massacre? 

Oh wait… but if guns were “illegal” on campus, that means there’s not even a chance that criminals would be carrying, right? *eye roll*

Originally formed in 1883, HSC was disbanded in 2003 because of a lack of student involvement. In October 2009, a group of students went on a shotgun trap outing with the Harvard Law School and became so enthused about the sport that they decided to revive the organization.

The club immediately began organizing group outings, target practices, and open classes, which were wildly popular on campus. Within two days, 140 campus gun enthusiasts had signed up for their course “Handguns 101.” With so much student interest, the club leadership decided that the time was ripe to apply for a status upgrade to an official club sport.

Always good to see schools breaking the mold and doing something different nowadays when it comes to guns.

The five female members of Texas Christian University’s national championship rifle team got a shout out from Obama on Monday evening at the NCAA sports champions celebration at the White House; “We’ve got the sharpshooters from the TCU rifle squad. Where are they?” asked Obama as the team members, standing near the camera risers, screamed. “I think that they may be able to give the Secret Service a run for their money.”

Obama told the TCU team members that he, too, practiced shooting with a rifle. “He said he practiced with the Secret Service,”

I don’t know he practices often, but it’s interesting to hear him acknowledge that he has shot with the Secret Service. Regardless, that is about the only cool thing I’ve ever heard him say.

Some hilarious stuff from Reddit user BattleHall:

  • President Obama is anti-handgun… because he knows that a handgun is only good for fighting your way back to your rifle.
  • Obama’s deep, dark secret isn’t that he’s a Muslim, it’s that he’s a gun nut. He has a prayer rug, but it’s embroidered with the image of John Moses Browning.
  • Obama scoffs at the 9mm vs. .45 ACP debate; instead his CCL authorized a tactical nuclear strike.
  • Sometimes, when he’s bored, Obama sends Sarah Brady anonymous gift wrapped packages containing a bottle of Hoppe’s No. 9.
  • After the election, he let everyone freak out and start buying up ammo because he was still sitting on a pallet of corrosive Bulgarian .380 that he got roped into buying at the Knob Creek shoot back in the 90’s, and he’s been trying to unload it for years.
  • In exchange for letting her plant an organic garden at the White House, Michelle has to let Barack keep his prized Dillon XL 650 in the West Wing; no single stage for him, he’s a progressive.

You know what the 1st Rule for a Gunfight is:

  1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.

“So Barack, who’d you bring?”

“The United States Marine Corp.”

“That’ll do…”

Why didn’t they offer this at my University?

Not like I didn’t do it anyway, rather than selling the books back to the university bookstore for a ridiculously low amount.

Sounds like an awesome way to introduce new shooters to the wonderful world of guns, and start the summer off with a bang.

Pretty sweet that the $20 fee includes the use of the firearms, hearing protection, eye protection, and NRA certified instructors. I wonder if you bring your own ammo, or if they have it for sale there?

The Ohio University 2nd Amendment Club has a crude website set up if you are doubting their existence.  The book shoot is announced on the events page.

Pretty funny counter poster with Levar Burton.

Two 9 millimeters, plus loads of bullets — 300 of them — and holsters to go with them, somehow got on board an Egypt Air flight out of JFK on Tuesday night. No one knew anything about the guns Mohammed Ibrahim stashed in his checked luggage until they were discovered in Cairo.

Ooops.. someone at the TSA is going to get in trouble for that one. Interesting how a University professor would try and pull a stunt like that… you’d think he would be smarter.  Plus if he’s traveling to another country I believe he would have to get a temporary import permit from that country, and an authorization to export from the U.S. …. maybe he had all those, but figured his work was done and didn’t bother to take the last required security steps at the airport?
