BrickArms: because even LEGOS need toy guns

Default post image

Every now and then I come across a really cool toy, that I just have to share with you. This weekend, I made it out to my local gun show and found a real gem- BrickArms.

My daughter’s BrickArms and LEGO Friends Collection

BrickArms is a small, family owned toy company specializing in original, custom designed LEGO compatible weapons and custom mini-figures. All toys are original, and they produce high quality, low cost toys that fit perfectly within the LEGO world. They truly are a “mom and pop shop”. The owner of the company, Will Chapman (based out of WA) has the help of his wife, 3 sons and his parents Robert and Sharlain, whom I had the pleasure of meeting at the gun show. Robert Chapman is a charming retired USAF fighter pilot and teacher, and Sharlain (M’s very own personal shopper), is a retired Occupational Therapist. They travel all over the country to sell their son’s fantastic and innovative toy accessories.

They sell (almost) exclusively at gun shows in the US, bringing over five dozen different Brickarms products to see, touch, play with and buy. And since Brickarms products are designed and manufactured in the USA, you can’t go wrong. They’re an inexpensive toy, that lets your child’s imagination soar!

If you’re interested in BrickArms, be sure to check out their website, Facebook page and Twitter! You can also catch them selling at the Tidewater Gun and Knife Show, at the Norfolk Scope, in Norfolk, VA, April 5th and 6th.  They will also be at Dayton, OH’s, Hara Arena the weekend of April 13th & 14th.  They will have an extensive line of Brickarms LEGO compatible weapons and mini-figures.  Custom figures will include Rambo, a SWAT policeman, desert terrorist, American soldiers in both green and tan uniforms, and German soldiers in a variety of uniforms.

WHIO-TV is at it again- Deleting Comments and Cyber Stalking to Protect Rapist

Default post image

I’ll be honest. I’m completely confused by WHIO’s recent actions. They aren’t answering any of my questions, and I’ve reached out several times. My previous post about this subject reached over 35,000 people and has been covered on countless blogs- so I feel that some updates are needed. A few days ago, Chad D. Baus of BuckeyeFirearms.org reached out to our local Sheriff to confirm his involvement with the Adam Project, and also confirm WHIO’s claim that convicted rapist Jerome McCorry is in fact endorsed by law enforcement. I’ll let you guess what they found. A whole lot of nothin’.

Mr. Baus heard it straight from the proverbial horse’s mouth- Sheriff Plummer removed himself from the Adam project three years ago and doesn’t support Mr. McCorry’s anti-gun message.Please take a minute to read Buckeye Firearm’s post about this.

WHIO lied again. Surprised? Not so much.

Then this afternoon, WHIO spoke out on their Facebook page when confronted with the claim that they’re deleting comments from their page about Mr.McCorry and their involvement.

So I hope you read that. They’re actually cyber-stalking their fans to confirm that they really are in their market. Disgusting. This is an issue affecting our entire nation. Shouldn’t everyone be allowed to weigh in? I’m sure they don’t delete positive comments when they’re out of their market.

What I find the worst though? Where are all the so-called “feminists”? This man was convicted of violence against a woman, WHIO-TV publicly supports him and they are silent. If this were a Republican or Conservative- WHIO-TV and every liberal female would be up in arms about it. But because it involves gun-control, they’d rather leave the victim in the cold and glorify the rapist. It’s sickening to see the liberal agenda being used to further gun-control while giving a rapist the stage.Of course a rapist doesn’t want guns- it’s going to make his crimes against women more dangerous!

Stand up for your rights. Stand up for women. Stand up for victims of rape.

Don’t stand for what WHIO-TV is doing.

WHIO-TV Endorses Local Rapist- the REAL War on Women

Default post image

*UPDATED IN THE COMMENTS. WE HAVE THE LIST OF LAW ENFORCEMENT THANKS TO A READER.

*MOST RECENT UPDATE CAN BE FOUND HERE.

This is one of those moments, as a blogger, where you have to get “dirty” for lack of a better word. I hate bringing negativity here, but this time, I’m making an exception.

One of our news stations WHIO-TV in Dayton, Ohio ran a piece on a gun-control demonstration at a recent gun-show. You can watch the video here. The man interviewed as the “gun-control advocate” was Jerome McCorry, a “Reverend” here in Dayton who runs the Adam Project. He’s also a convicted rapist. By Ohio law, he’s a felon. And by Ohio law, he isn’t allowed to posses a firearm. This lovely tid-bit of information was brought to my attention by Buckeye Firearms.

So I called WHIO out on their Facebook page, wondering what they were thinking. I have absolutely no problem with WHIO speaking with someone who is for gun-control (I’m not for gun-control, and I’m not going to discuss that further here either, so mosey on by if you’re looking for a fight) but interviewing someone for a TV segment who is a RAPIST is not the person to talk to about taking away someone else’s rights. He’s been there, he’s done that and he got the orange jump-suit to prove it.

WHIO’s response? Well, I’ll let you read that for yourself. Fair warning: have a puke-bucket near by.

WHIO TV Dayton Ohio calls rapist’s work peaceful and non-violent

I was shocked. How could they, the media, use their bias to influence their viewership? Why is WHIO claiming that a rapist is endorsed by our local law enforcement? This brings up a whole new discussion.Are women safe in Dayton? Are the police going to take rape claims seriously, if they are known by the media to endorse rapists?

But by the time I had heard about this, Dana Loesch (an amazing, influential woman with conservative views and nearly 100,000 followers- check out her blog here) had already been all over it on Twitter.So when I joined in, WHIO took notice. And then they responded:

whiotvtwitter 200x300

WHIO responds to us, by back-tracking

I wonder if WHIO thinks that his message was peaceful and harmonious when he was raping his defenseless victim?

And you know, my title is also a little biased on this one. Dayton Daily News and WKEF ABC22 FOX45 also interviewed this man, and failed to disclose his background. They all had a hand in this. Not one of them has made a statement.

Simply put, gun control is not about reducing violence. It’s about control. Just like rape isn’t about sex. It’s about control. Which makes sense for Jerome McCorry, a rapist, to be advocating for gun control. It’s up to our media how they portray an individual.

I just ask you, my reader to think of it like this: If this man was your daughter’s rapist, would you be happy to hear how he is portrayed in the media? I’m guessing not.
