Gun Owners: “Not Without a Fight”

Max Lemus has released his new documentary, “Not Without a Fight.” See further info and the 4-minute trailer at the film website. A summary of the film is available from Paul Valone on In the film trailer, I noted there is some very appropriate NRA bashing. Gun people who continue to claim the NRA is supporting their ability to defend themselves are delusional fools. As one friend of mine said, the NRA is the world’s biggest gun control lobby.

On the same issue, I am currently reading Clayton E. Cramer’s Armed America: The Story of How and Why Guns Became as American as Apple Pie. I highly recommend this great book. The first chapter alone is worth the price (“Creating a Useable Past: Michael Bellesiles and Revisionist History”). Mr. Cramer tells all about the Bellesiles scam and how Mr. Bellesiles intentionally altered the quotes and dates of history, misquoted and misrepresented primary sources, and revised historical events to fit into his preferred thesis that guns were not a common characteristic of early American society. Cramer was intrigued by the claims made by Bellesiles and investigated his sources, which led to his uncovering of a startling case of falsely revised scholarship for the benefit of serving a pro-government, anti-gun ideological purpose. Cramer found himself so deeply immersed in purposeful exaggerations, lies, and distortions of history that he ended up writing this great book. Support Cramer’s great and important work, and, by buying the book. It’s only $11, and it’ll make a great Christmas gift.

    I fall into the camp as some of those in the trailer: My mind is with the NRA, but my heart is with JPFO and GOA.

    Like the Republican Party, the National Rifle Association is desperate for reform. If the NRA ever got its house in order, I think we’d see some large scale reductions in draconian federal and state regulations. Can you imagine an America without the BATFE? Or without the “sporting use” doctrine? Or the entire 1968 GCA? NFA?

    It could happen. GOA and JPFO are largely toothless because they are simply too small.

    That is precisely what it appeared like to me also. Using the fresh BATFE fiasco involving the WE M4 Gas Blowbacks, that is only additional bad media for Airsoft.
