DONE: import jcomments into K2 JComments

UPDATE {prefix}_jcomments SET object_group = 'com_k2'
where object_group = 'com_content'

I get asked about Springfield quite a bit and it has been awhile since I inquired. They are always very prompt to reply.

Springfield currently offers the LE discount only to LE or Military Instructors. We hope to someday have a program in place for all NRA instructors but we do not at this time.”

I did remind them that S&W and Ruger offer programs.  So, hopefully one day!

Back after another hack :(

 

*** If you are reading this you are on the NEW site (currently in testing)! ***

Welcome!!

 

 


 

Hi,

The site was hacked again, I was notified by my ISP (at least they gave me a chance to remove them before shutting the site down this time).

Sorry that we down briefly today - I also found some questionable files and had to clean them up - reverting to backup. I will be accelerating the site's move to Joomla.

Thanks for your patience.

Original article: Gun ownership does not make women safer from the Boston Globe

This is an example of showing that a study will prove exactly what you set out to prove.

First they attack the statement that a woman with a firearm can defend herself. In fact, they even go as far as to say that they have discredited its possibility by citing a particular study.

However, the study doesn't have anything to do with women owning a firearm!
Instead the study actually says that women, who are around more people with firearms are more likely to get harmed by a firearm. hmm...no  mention of the rates of firearm ownership by women though.

Is that like the study that concluded that if you own a firearm, that you are more likely to get shot with your own firearm?

"The presence of a gun is the biggest risk factor for domestic violence deaths among women.”
Really? The "biggest" risk factor? So, if a woman knows someone with multiple firearms (gasp!) is she exponentially more in danger? Right. It's the gun(s), not the person - got it.

The article also strikes me as sexist in its implications that a woman cannot handle a firearm. In me experience, that is simply not true.
