Ronald Ritchie, Walmart Shooting 9-1-1 Caller. Called-Out.

Ronald-Ritchie-615x345Ronald Ritchie’s (Pictured) anti-gun ignorance resulted in the death of John Crawford (also not the brightest bulb) at an Ohio Walmart in early August.

Over at The Dana Show. 

Looking at the video, its plain – Crawford did not point the “gun” at anyone, no less at any children.  He was not acting aggressively.  He was fiddling around with a toy and got blown away by cops with a shoot first mentality – a state of mind fed to them by Ritchie.

Law Enforcement’s dramatic response:


No indictment for the officers, but clearly Ritchie “should be” culpable.  Whether he will be held to account, not sure.  But unless I am missing something, all Crawford appeared to do in the video is “threaten” a bag of kibble in the pet-food isle.

“Crawford was speaking on the phone in the Walmert (sic) to LeeCee Johnson, the woman who is the mother of Crawford’s two children. She later described hearing Crawford tell officers, “it’s not real,” immediately before the shooting began. A grand jury last week decided that the officers would not be indicted in the Walmart shooting death of John Crawford III.”

Ritchie’s interview with law-enforcement here,

Note where he says:

– He’s “absolutely” familiar with firarms.  Really?  Well, during the interview Ritchie submits that he was “right next to” Crawford.  Military experience?  Are you sure?  And you don’t know enough from your experience to ascertain that Crawford was carrying a toy?

–  Later, he at least implies that he knew this toy was out of its packaging.

–  He says that he thought the situation was getting “serious.”  Yes.  Was that before or after the surveillance tapes show Crawford in the pet-food isle, on the phone, laughing?

And finally, “if you’re dumb enough to point any kind of weapon at a police officer you get what’s coming to you.”  Hmm.  How about, “If you’re dumb enough to call police when you should know, Mr. “Absolute Military Absolutely”, the difference between a weapon and a toy, you get whats coming, to you.”

And of course, he changes his story. 

He can’t stop himself, apparently.

I think the best thing he can do, at this point, is Shhh.

The same advice holds true for media outlets and reporters.  I hope he keeps on talkin’.



FlaGunBlog has to have something about guns, right? Here ya go…. .

Went to a nice range in Jacksonville Florida recently some time ago…. .  Actually, Gateway Rifle and Pistol Club.

Their Website:

Did not want to hat-tip them specifically, but they have a nice set up.  Go check out your own local ranges, or them.

We were shooting a friend’s Socom M1.  Here we are set up and ready to go:

The M1 did not like softpoints:

My FIL did a little better (Edit- he may very well be watching – a lot better):

photo 3Lesson:  The M1 was heavy and expensive to run these days – but I still want one.  Why not?  If you can’t score one via any private market, go to CMP – and you don’t need a souped-up socom to have fun and shoot:

Check them out.  Or not.

Ebola: This Guy Has it Right.


Ebola-496366Over at NFO… .

My wife met me at the door today, to tell me the news.  I already knew it.

We now have a case of Ebola, in our country, here not because “we” brought it here as part of any humanitarian crisis.  He apparently flew here.  Lax boarders.  We used to take measures, at Ellis Island.

This is a problem.  Thank god this present patient has all the care that can be given.  He will likely live.  For how long… .
