Enemies within

As I was considering what to write about this week, I came across a blaring statement of ignorance about the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and the second amendment.

To start, we'll just take a look at this specific excerpt: “This is a purpose-built weapon with no sporting applications to speak of.” I will include the entire "in context" explanation by the editor of Recoil Magazine below and I believe after reading this, you'll find it even more repugnant.

The need to justify a 'legitimate purpose' to own a firearm is absurd on it's face. The furtherance of that by means of a "sporting application" flies in the face of history and all logic.

We must dispel the lie that is referred to as "sporting purposes".

First and foremost, people have a Right to defend themselves. Period. There are no sporting purposes to self defense. The Right to defend yourself is unlimited. You have as much of a Right to defend yourself against 1 assailant as you do a dozen or one hundred.

Today the most effectual means of self defense are firearms. Tomorrow it may be a light saber or laser firing weapon. You have the Right to defend yourself. You may believe that Right comes from your belief in that The Creator has bestowed that upon you or perhaps you view it as a natural Earthly right or simply because of the second amendment to the Constitution.

Regardless of where and how you believe you have that Right it is something we all have.

As Samuel Adams said: “You have rights antecedent to all earthly governments; rights that cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws; rights derived from the Great Legislator of the Universe.” Simply put, you have it and no man (or woman) has the authority to rightfully take that from you.

So we can clearly see, "sporting purposes" is a classic strawman argument. The enemies of Freedom, Liberty and self defense cannot argue with reason and logic, so they lie and they create false definitions and dichotomies to try and justify their indefensible positions to disarm us and leave us defenseless in the face of criminals, terrorists and tyrants.

While a classic revolver may be sufficient to stop a lone criminal, a standard (deemed 'high' by our enemies) capacity pistol may be better suited to dark alley confrontation with a few adversaries.

Likewise a riot or civil unrest situation such as the LA Riots (where shop owners used AK-47's to defend themselves) to the events in the south during hurricane Katrina where citizens used everything from bats to handguns and so called "assault" rifles to defend themselves and their neighborhoods.

You have the Right to decide how best to defend yourself. After all you don't have a Right to something if someone can put all sorts of absurd conditions or restrictions on it.

While not it's current position the United States Supreme Court has ruled in the past (when it held true to the Constitution and not to public opinion or politics) that a 'right restricted is a right denied'.

While H&K's MP7A1 may be better suited to repel a foreign military invasion or government turned tyrannical, that certainly doesn't make it something a "civvie" shouldn't own.

Quite the opposite in fact if you actually support the second amendment: "Necessary to the security of a free state". They certainly aren't talking about a deer rifle for hunting or handgun for self defense against a random thief or rapist.

Which ever firearm(s) you decide is (are) appropriate to protect and defend yourself, your family and your country is ultimately up to you. You have that RIGHT and when it comes to Rights, please refer to the founding fathers and how they felt about them.

As I mentioned earlier, here is the attempt by 'Recoil Magazine" to justify their position:

H&K MP7A1
“Like we mentioned before, the MP7A1 is unavailable to civilians and for good reason. We all know that’s technology no civvies should ever get to lay their hands on. This is a purpose-built weapon with no sporting applications to speak of. It is made to put down scumbags, and that’s it. Mike Cabrera of Heckler & Koch Law Enforcement Sales and veteran law enforcement officer with SWAT unit experience points out that this is a gun that you do not want in the wrong, slimy hands. It comes with semi-automatic and full-auto firing modes only. Its overall size places it between a handgun and submachine gun. Its assault rifle capabilities and small size make this a serious weapon that should not be taken lightly.”

I would urge you, if you have a subscription to recoil magazine to cancel it. Don't support a company or organization that doesn't support your Rights. This isn't a random contributor, it is the editorial staff and by default the official position of Recoil Magazine. They also had time to backpedal or correct their original statement, instead they really let their position shine through.

The enemies of freedom are numerous enough, we don't need them within the gates as well.

UPDATE:  9/11/2012

RECOIL Magazine issued an apology two days ago.  Today on 9/11 they "Liked" this comment made by one of their readers on the RECOIL Magazine Facebook page.

It would seem that the anti-2nd Amendment views of their editor are not his views alone.  Someone in charge of their Facebook page made mistake of pouring fuel on the fire by "liking" this comment which mirrors the opinion of the original article that got RECOIL into this mess to begin with.  Apparently their apology was a ruse to try and silence the outcry by the firearms community.

To make matters even worse, when people started pointing this out to others on their Facebook page and tempers once against flared, RECOIL Magazine removed the Like in an apparent effort to conceal their views once again.



UPDATE:  9/12/2012

H&K has issued a statement that contradicts RECOIL Magazines version of events.  H&K is denying they made the comments about the MP7A1 not being suitable for civilian ownership.  It seems the only people left holding the bag here is RECOIL Magazine and their efforts to blame a sponsor (H&K) for their own anti-gun comments has backfired on them.
"Some readers have misinterpreted a recent feature story in RECOIL magazine as a reflection of HK policy. Heckler & Koch has a long presence in the US civilian market and throughout that time has been an ardent and passionate supporter of the Second Amendment and the American civilian shooter. This will always be the case. The contents, opinions, and statements expressed in that feature story are those of the writer, not Heckler and Koch’s. Additionally, the writer and RECOIL magazine have issued a clarification and apology for the ill-chosen words used in the story.

The HK MP7A1 4.6 mm Personal Defense Weapon mentioned in the story is a selective-fire product (capable of "full automatic” fire) and is currently restricted to military and law enforcement agencies by BATF. HK-USA has previously researched introducing similar commercial products, chambered in 4.6 mm, but it was determined that the final product would not have enough appeal or be legally feasible.

— Heckler & Koch USA"

UPDATE:  9/13/2012

Jerry Tsai has stepped down.  He released the following statement on the RECOIL website.

It is with deep sorrow that I announce I am stepping down as editor of Recoil, effective immediately. 
It is very difficult for me to walk away from something I helped create, something that I loved doing, and something I firmly believed would appeal to a fresh new generation of gun enthusiasts, but I accept that the comments in my story in the current issue have made my position as editor of Recoil untenable. 
With that said, Recoil is bigger than any one person, and if my departure will allow Recoil to continue to grow and engage gun enthusiasts, then stepping down as editor is clearly the right thing for me to do. 
I accept I made mistakes, and I apologize unreservedly for calling Recoil’s support for Second Amendment rights into question. 
While I understand the passions aroused over this incident, the deeply hurtful words from some of my fellow gun enthusiasts have been painful to endure. I hope now we can all move on. 
Finally, I would like to thank all those who have supported me over the past few days. These are the people who know me to be at heart a passionate gun enthusiast whose dream was to make something bold and new in firearms media. 
Jerry Tsai

  4. "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms..disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one." - Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria, Criminologist in 1764. That was 230 years ago. -Thomas Jefferson

  5. Considering we have subgun matches nationwide, I would have to say it has a "sporting application."

    And Heckler and Koch gave up on making rifles for the civilian market a while ago because of the ridiculous restrictions they were forced to adhere to not only by the US, but by their own government. I'm sure if they could produce those as is for non-LEO/.mil consumption they would; but as it stands, the vast majority of items they make require significant work arounds to be able to be imported.

  8. I don't see this as "infighting". What we have is a editorial staff that subscribes to the elitist attitude that police are a special class of citizens and we, the good citizens of the U.S., aren't to be trusted with the same firearms they are.

    The bigger problem that this article highlights is the fact police are arming themselves like a military. They've not only become more militaristic, but they've also adopted the military mindset of "us vs. them". They no longer view citizens as the people they serve and protect but rather they look at citizens as enemy combatants that are to be distrusted and controlled.

    The editor that wrote this article refers to people other than LEO's and military as "civilians". The truth is that LEO's are civilians too. But the editor doesn't think so, he sees himself as being military. That's a major problem.

  9. Sorry boss, he has a point. This type of gun is more dangerous in the hands of a inexperienced gunman with an attitude problem than it is in the hands of a miltary trained professional. Yes americans have every right to own weapons... but not EVERY one is responsible in that ownership and gun makers certainly realize this. And choosing to write an extensive blog about a second amendment supporting magazine editor over say a constitution abolishing politician (although you could be here all day with that) STILL is a smidgen of infighting.

    1. What would make the Mp7A1 any more lethal in the hands of citizens than say a FNH P90? You do realize FNH has sold a civilian legal version of the P90 (PS90) to lowly peasants like me for about a decade now, right?

      With the PS90 having been on the market for so long, please tell me, where is the atrocious body count we could expect from such a lethal device being sold to average citizens? Where are all of the reports of LEO's being mowed down by P90's by unruly and not to be trusted average citizens?

      The editor of Recoil Magazine is no more a member of my community than Dianne Feinstein is.

    2. Agreed MAC, I have an FNH PS90 SBR as my home defense weapon and for as long as that firearm has been availible to the public I have not read a single article ever listing it as being used in a crime of any kind. The only people that fear firearms in the hands of law abiding people are criminals and tyrants. Semper Fi.

  10. Ronnie Barrett has the right idea, he will sell NO firearm to a law enforcement agency that a civilian can not buy. Ronnie Barrett is a TRUE American firearm manufacturer.

  11. It also seems that Travis Haley gets it. This is from his Facebook page today:

    "The Haley Strategic Partners team was disappointed to learn of an article and later, public comments, made by a editor at Recoil Magazine which indicated certain weapon systems were not suitable to be possessed or operated by responsible members of the American public. We take issue with this.

    At Haley Strategic, we choose to train responsible citizens, law enforcement officers and military profe
    ssionals in our courses ranging from basic to advanced Disruptive Environments. In short, we help Americans prepare. Weapons systems are tools. Tools built to preserve lives in life threatening situations. There is no reason to prevent responsible citizens from utilizing any tools that will improve their odds of surviving such an event.

    We take this very seriously. Every person in at Haley Strategic believes that, as Americans, it is our responsibility to be prepared, both mentally and physically, for worst case events, whether they happen to ourselves and our loved ones, or innocent people caught in an unfolding tragedy.

    As such, Haley Strategic Partners will indefinitely suspend all advertising and collaborative efforts with both Recoil Magazine and RecoilWeb.com."

  12. ITS Tactical gets it as well:

    "Thank you for purchasing RECOIL Magazine from ITS Tactical. In this issue (page #35), Editor Jerry Tsai chose to utter statements that were contrary to our core values here at ITS and we will no longer be carrying future issues until we hear from Source Interlink Media (RECOIL's parent company) publicly on their stance and future direction without Mr. Tsai as Editor.

    We have invested a lot in RECOIL, both financially with our advertising dollars and purchasing issues to distribute. In light of Mr. Tsai's comments we've since cancelled future plans to advertise or distribute.

    ITS Tactical, along with many of our friends in the industry are left to recover from the damage that Mr. Tsai has caused. We will continue to sell the copies we have left of the magazine, as there's no way for us to recoup the financial burden created.

    By having purchased this magazine, you're still supporting the advertisers in this issue who were all caught off guard by Mr. Tsai's comments and thought we were supporting a like-minded organization.

    The official stance of ITS Tactical surrounding the RECOIL controversy is posted here: http://itstac.tc/NV495P I encourage you to read through my thoughts, as I address the original issue and Mr. Tsai's original rebuttal on the RECOIL Facebook page.

    Thanks for your continued support,

  13. As a law enforcement officer I find the statements of Recoil magazine repugnant. The editorial staff clearly does not have a firm understanding of the second amendment or the rights of the American people. Law enforcement officers are not a special class of citizens. Our job is to serve the public through protection of their rights and their lives. A better armed and trained public makes my job easier. I applaud the Military Arms Channel/Sturmgewehre , Travis Haley, and ITS Tactical. To all those who are defending Recoil, stop it. Stop excusing the inexcusable. It is simple, SAY WHAT YOU MEAN AND MEAN WHAT YOU SAY. The editorial staff had a chance to correct the record (it would not change my view) but they didn’t. They reaffirmed their anti-freedom stance. There is no room for an anti-gun gun magazine. There is no room in this community for bleeding hearts that oppose freedom. Lastly, there is no room in this cop’s mailbox for Recoil magazine.

    1. Thank you for your comments. It's important for others to see that not all LEO's view themselves as military or special class citizens. I have good friends that are LEO's and they too are repulsed by such attitudes.

      What the anti's fail to realize is that the police can't be everywhere all the time. When Mr. Thug comes knocking it's you vs. him. The vast majority of the time the altercation will end before the police can get there. That means you're responsible for your own safety and well being until help arrives and there's a darn good chance help won't arrive until the altercation has already ended. The police can help of course, they can get you medical attention, stop further threats, apprehend the suspect, and of course take reports so the DA can press charges and get a conviction. However, your life ultimately rests in your own hands.

      Armed responsible citizens are law enforcements best friend. Example:

  14. We can add Magpul to the list of companies that have pulled their advertising:

    "Recently, the editor of RECOIL magazine wrote comments regarding who should and should not have access to certain firearms, as well as comments meant to clarify his initial statements. We at Magpul were severely disappointed in the apparent position of the author and by the comments themselves. We have been asked to provide a response to these comments and a statement regarding our intent to continue or discontinue advertising in RECOIL.

    At Magpul we consider ourselves proponents of a culture of personal responsibility, where individual liberties are the true roots of our passion. Firearms are tools that can be an expression of those liberties, and more importantly, the guardians of them. When we were presented with the opportunity to support a new publication, called “RECOIL”, that had a different look and feel, we were on board. We had hopes that the broad appeal and fresh look of a publication of this type could be a big help in getting more people involved and interested in firearms and firearm freedoms issues. We welcome all who enjoy or appreciate firearms for any lawful purpose, as greater numbers strengthen our cause. We also want to partner with those who share our appreciation of the true struggle we are in regarding our Second Amendment freedoms.

    Due to concerns about content and true motivation, we allowed our support for RECOIL to expire, with the current issue being our last, until we could determine if we were truly speaking the same language. The recent comments and subsequent clarification made by the editor of RECOIL are completely counter to our position here at Magpul. These statements proved that there is an apparent gap between our values and those of RECOIL. As such, we have chosen not to continue or renew any advertising support for RECOIL magazine unless and until we are convinced at some future point that this publication truly shares our values and has the best interests of Magpul and our customers in mind.

    We sincerely hope that the outpouring of Second Amendment support as a result of these comments can continue with as much strength towards educating existing and potential new shooters about the importance of firearms rights and in contacting elected officials to preserve those rights. We look forward to future efforts to reach a broader audience through individual effort, and perhaps through an appropriately focused publication, to continue growth in the number of Americans who enjoy celebrating our Second Amendment heritage."

  15. Bravo Concealment also pulls their support:

    "Over the weekend, a justifiable firestorm exploded over the comments of an editor of RECOIL magazine regarding firearms access and ownership in America. The BCM and Bravo Company USA teams share the outrage of the firearms community and will not support any organization that so directly opposes the core principles our company and country was built on.

    "Like we mentioned before, the MP7A1 is unavailable to civilians and for good reason. We all know that's technology no civvies should ever get to lay their hands on. This is a purpose-built weapon with no sporting applications to speak of."- Jerry Tsai, editor of RECOIL Magazine.

    This statement echoes those of the extreme left wing, big government anti-gun zealots, who argue for magazine capacity restrictions, "assault" weapon bans, and the effective repeal of the 2nd Amendment. It also shows a very profound and fundamental misunderstanding of The Constitution, American history, absolute power, and human behavior.

    The founding fathers made the right to keep and bear arms second only to the freedom of speech in the Bill of Rights. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, George Mason, Samuel Adams and so many others, labored tirelessly to create a new nation with laws free from the tyranny of the old country. A place where the government would represent the people, not repress them.

    As Americans, we have the luxury of living in a developed society where we can develop ourselves through education and critical debate. We have a responsibility to question ideas and confront issues that we have a stake in as citizens of this nation, be that the rights of yourselves or the rights of others when threatened by the state. Firearms are, first and foremost, a tool to secure your life and the lives of others, against any aggressor.

    The people at Bravo Company USA and BCM support responsible civilians having access to the same tools of Law Enforcement to effect the same ends. Securing and defending ourselves, our loved ones and innocent people if the situation arises.

    As of this time, Bravo Company USA and BCM cannot continue it's support of the publication. We have asked the editors to suspend our web ads while we continue discussions with the management and staff about a satisfactory resolution to this situation."

  16. Jim Fuller of Rifle Dynamics throws his $.02 in:

    "The Recoil Magazine Blunder

    I have received a lot of questions about the recent article from Recoil magazine. In the interest of fairness Recoil did an article on our 502 rifles earlier this year. I meet and spent the day with Jerry Tsai and his photographer for the article.

    · Jerry really screwed this one up, his original statement was out of line and his rebuttal was no help and likely made the situation worse. I was very disappointed when I read it and have spent the weekend thinking this through while watching the gun community’s reaction.

    While I don’t know Jerry Tsai very well in the time I spent with him during the interview, it seemed he was rather new to the gun industry and for lack of a better term was “A very excitable boy”. Jerry is from Ca. so I have a little insight into his “gun mindset” being a former Ca. resident myself. There are many Ca. gun owners due to the environment they live in become kind of recluse or in some cases embarrassed to admit they use firearms. This mindset opens the door for people to make stupid statements like Jerry’s. Believe me the Ca. school system hasn’t taught much about the constitution for many years and has actively brainwashed the population very effectively.

    While I can’t excuse Jerry’s comments I can understand where they came from. I personally think Jerry was parroting the HK reps opinions without the experience/education in the industry to see the fallacy in that kind of thought process. HK has been know in the past to be very elitist when it come to civilian gun ownership.

    The gun community’s reaction has been strong as it should be, we should not tolerate this when we have to fight almost daily to keep our God given rights. On the other hand I am a firm believer in not actively hurting another gun industry business, as there are those who have tried to hurt my company, although not for the same reason. At RD we specialize in the most politically incorrect gun in history and have taken flack for it from my fellow gun owners and the general public. Yes I have had long time gun owners and very squared away warriors who don’t run AK’s say to me there’s no need for “that gun” in our society. So this mindset while it is not voiced a lot does exist in the gun community.

    As far as Recoils future, IMO Jerry Tsai needs to step down as editor and find someone who can repair the relationship with the gun community (if possible). I was a fan of the magazine before they ever did an article on RD. I like the format and look of the magazine and think it is a refreshing approach, I just hope they can do the right thing and repair the damage they created.

    Time and public opinion will tell."

  17. Silencerco chimes in:

    "Recently we were made aware of some disturbing “Editorial” comments on behalf of Recoil magazine, concerning the illegitimacy of a certain firearm ( and by extension, an entire class of firearms) for “sporting purposes”.

    We feel these comments are counterproductive and are certainly NOT reflective of the opinion of Silencerco/SWR or the American shooting public.

    Original Recoil Text:

    “Like we mentioned before, the MP7A1 is unavailable to civilians and for good reason. We all know that’s technology no civvies should ever get to lay their hands on. This is a purpose-built weapon with no sporting applications to speak of. It is made to put down scumbags, and that’s it. Mike Cabrera of Heckler & Koch Law Enforcement Sales and veteran law enforcement officer with SWAT unit experience points out that this is a gun that you do not want in the wrong, slimy hands. It comes with semi-automatic and full-auto firing modes only. Its overall size places it between a handgun and submachine gun. Its assault rifle capabilities and small size make this a serious weapon that should not be taken lightly.”

    The statements made by the editorial staff and others interviewed for the article were so poorly stated, factually inaccurate and so misrepresentative of the core values and beliefs of our company and our mission, that we have written the editor of Recoil magazine and asked him to discontinue all scheduled advertising for both Silencerco and SWR products.

    We sincerely hope that the owners of Recoil will get a strong message from the shooting public and all reputable manufacturers that our people will not tolerate the mindset behind those statements. We urge you to make your opinion known to recoil and their advertisers.

    Thank you for your continued support of our company, our sport and our collective right to keep and bear arms."

  18. Panteao Productions is out too:

    "I learned today about the article in the latest issue of RECOIL magazine on the HK MP7A1, or more specifically the comment within the article by the editor pertaining to who should own an MP7A1. I also saw the follow up in their Facebook page explaining their reasoning behind the editorial.

    Panteao Productions has a very clear position when it comes to the Second Amendment. We do not agree with the opinion of the editor from RECOIL magazine and I am personally very disappointed that he would make such a statement about what he views as a firearm that should not be getting into the “wrong hands”. I would have expected that kind of ignorant comment coming from someone not in the firearms community or from one of the anti-gun organizations.

    Until such time that the staff of RECOIL magazine changes their view on firearm ownership and the Second Amendment, Panteao Productions will be discontinuing all scheduled ads in their print publication and website and requesting that all Panteao video content be removed from their website.

    I hope that someone at RECOIL magazine steps up and issues a formal apology to the firearms community. They have a great concept for their magazine and it would be a shame to see it go away. The ball is in their court with regards to how they handle their mishap.

    Thank you for your continued support of Panteao Productions.

  19. TNVC drops their support:

    “Those willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.”
    - Benjamin Franklin

    As military and law enforcement veterans, we at TNVC are staunch supporters of the 2nd Amendment and believe the government has no right to restrict or infringe on the rights or law abiding U.S. citizens’ ability to own firearms of any type. To think otherwise shows a clear ignor
    ance of the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and everything this great nation stands for. Like many of you, we were taken aback by the words printed in Issue 4 of RECOIL magazine:

    "Like we mentioned before, the MP7A1 is unavailable to civilians and for good reason. We all know that's technology no civvies should ever get to lay their hands on. This is a purpose-built weapon with no sporting applications to speak of."- Jerry Tsai, editor of RECOIL Magazine.

    We take great offense that a defense industry publication would let something like this go to print. The 2nd Amendment is clearly not about allowing citizens to own guns for “sporting purposes” or “hunting.” It is to allow the citizenry the proper arms in which to defend itself from an oppressive and tyrannical government that aims to strip the population of its rights; something so eloquently illustrated by the U.S. War for Independence. The difference between an armed population and an un-armed population is the same as that of a citizen of a country and subject to a ruling class.

    When TNVC was originally approached by RECOIL before the launch of their first issue, we had very high hopes for the publication. It was unlike any other magazine in the industry and was likely able to capture a whole new audience, showing them the culture of firearms heritage that we hold so dear. Its great potential was equaled only by its rapid fall from grace when three sentences laid waste to their solid foundation.

    We at TNVC have invested a lot in RECOIL, both in time and dollars spent advertising. And, we are extremely saddened to see such a promising publication implode due to lack of judgment and/or understanding of the firearms culture in which this great nation is founded. It not only let us down, but our founding Fathers, and all who have given the ultimate sacrifice to insure our America is the last hope of freedom.

    Because of our core beliefs and support of what is right, we cannot continue support of a publication that does not have a clear black and white understanding of the 2nd Amendment and the principals on which the United States is founded. To this end, as of today, TNVC Inc will cease further advertising and sponsorship with RECOIL magazine until such time that we believe their staff fully appreciates the magnitude of the 2nd Amendment.

    Sincerely,
    Victor Di Cosola, Owner
    TNVC Inc."

  20. Mission First Tactical also drops advertising:

    "At Mission First Tactical , we are well aware of the statements made in RECOIL magazine by the Editor in regards to the article and susequently to the follow up attempts to clarify. We were deeply dissapointed being staunch believers in a clear interpretation of the 2nd Amendment.

    We initially had high hopes for RECOIL magazine as a new and fresh look to the industry, but as stated so frequently
    with great power comes great responsibility.

    Due to this we feel it necessary to suspend our advertising till such time we are satisfied that proper steps have been taken by RECOIL and Staff to move beyond and demonstrate their clear understanding of the gravity of their statements.
