Quote of the day—Jeff Knox

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 06:00, Sunday, 18 November

We’re all in favor of Pelosi pushing for votes on gun control. As we’ve often said, guns win, and we like having record votes. There is some valid concern that this president has demonstrated a willingness to “work with” the Democrats on a variety of issues, and his commitment to the Second Amendment has wobbled upon occasion. There are also a number of Republicans in both the House and Senate, who have proven to be unreliable on rights issues, and who are likely to break ranks with their party, providing cover for Democrats from conservative states who want to avoid going on record with an anti-rights vote.

Removing Blood Splatter

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 08:55, Sunday, 18 November

We are still finding blood splatter from when Rosie cut herself.  Some of it wipes away with a wet paper towel, especially on gloss paint and porcelain.  But on semigloss paint, you need to use a sponge with some rough surface, and do with the direction of the splatter.

If you are covering up a crime, I doubt this will fall the luminol test.


Ouachita Parish, La. (1876)
Before 11/29/1876: Several white men entered the Pinkston home to discourage Republican voting by Henry Pinkston, colored.  They gagged him, stabbed him, dragged him outside and shot him.  Then they cut his baby’s throat.  They shot Henry’s wife Eliza, and then one said to another “’I want some of that.’  They held my legs up, and jumped on me.”  Several of the other men raped her as well.  Then they attacked Eliza with an ax and knife, and knocked her teeth out.  (Fortunately, the ax head fell off the handle during the attack.)  During her testimony, she “unfastened her dress and exposed her breast, which was all cut up, and a most horrible sight to look at.”  She then fainted....

If the vote on the 2016 bill to manage wildfire area better was 75-0 in one house and 36-0 in another, how come the legislature didn't override Gov. Brown's veto?

Those Little Acorns

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 06:09, Sunday, 18 November

Joe wanted to know how big those little acorns are.  While I didn't do a scientific mass measurement, I'll admit that they are small, about a 1/2 inch sphere.  Here's one sitting on a common dime.


That's a mall acorn.  Now it's time to go outside, turn on the shop and start browning meat.  We're having taco soup for lunch and I want everything to simmer for a couple of hours before lunch.

Y'all have a blessed Sunday, and we'll talk later.

King County Customer Service

by Carl Bussjaeger in The Zelman Partisans at 07:52, Sunday, 18 November

In Washington state, some anti-gun busybodies have taken it upon themselves to force firearms dealers to post signs warning how “terrible” their products are.

King County to require warning signs at gun shops and ranges
The signs say the presence of a firearm in the home increases the risk of suicide, homicide and unintentional deaths to children.

Specifically, the signs must read:

“WARNING: The presence of a firearm in the home significantly increases the risk of suicide, homicide, death during domestic violence disputes and unintentional deaths to children, household members and others.”

Oh dear, we wouldn’t want people committing sui… wait.

in Of Arms and the Law at 09:27, Sunday, 18 November

Namely, if a person refuses to give up their firearms under a "red flag" law, could authorities enter their house and seize them... The Tenth Circuit just ruled in US v. Shrum, No. 17-3059. Defendant called 911 to report that his girlfriend, aged in her 30s, had suddenly died. (The autopsy found she'd ODed on meth). Police responded, thought the death unusual, held him for 11 hours outside the house, noticed that he had ammunition, determined that he was a convicted felon, and tipped off ATF which searched the house and found guns, ammo, and meth.

The 10th Circuit found there was a Fourth Amendment violation, going back to when police refused to let him enter his house for an extended period of time; that was a seizure. They had no probable cause to believe he'd committed a crime; at best they had a suspicion. There was no reason to believe he'd destroy evidence,...

Lessons of Ia Drang

by JDZ in Never Yet Melted at 07:49, Sunday, 18 November


Major Bruce Crandall’s UH-1D in the background.

Larry Kummer, at Fabius Maximus, identifies the lessons the leadership of both sides learned from the early Vietnam War Battle of Ia Drang (famously depicted in the Mel Gibson movie “We Were Soldiers” [2002]). Only one side’s leadership got the lesson right.

On 14 November 1965 the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) flew to the Ia Drang Valley of Vietnam, initiating the first major battle between the North Vietnamese and American armies. This marked our transition from advisers to direct combatants. There were two battles. One at Landing Zone X-Ray, where Americans under the command of Lt. ...

“Le Grand K” Retired – and a few other changes to the SI

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 06:22, Sunday, 18 November

The International System of Units (or SI – it did start in France) underwent some changes. Most people think of the bits they run into everyday as the metric system, and I know Americans hate the metric system. Why? Because they learned one thing, and believe they are incapable of learning something new.

Scientists just ditched the single lump of metal that defined the kilogram for 129 years for a better measure. Everyone is hung up on the kilogram, but there were several other parts of the SI units that were changed. I guess reporters aren’t too up on physics to know what those are. Some (maybe most) articles ONLY mention the kilogram. (More on that later.)

Scientists in Paris on Friday approved a change which will alter how a kilogram is defined, the first change to the system of measuring mass which has been in use since 1889.

So originally a kilogram was supposed to be the weight of 1 liter of water (1000, cubic centimeters) taken just at the freezing point. (O degrees Celsius, that is.) That was a nightmare. So in 1889, they cr...

Smoked Goblin? Aisle 5

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 06:00, Sunday, 18 November

Yet another failure of the victim-selection process. Man trying to rob Independence store is shot by clerk.

He shot at some customers in the store, shattering a door to a cooler. Then he pointed the gun at the clerk.

“The robber pulled a gun out and was threatening to shoot him,” said Derrick Wilson, a customer. “Before he got a chance, the cashier pulled out his and shot him instead.”

Under the “No honor among thieves” heading, the guy who got shot was dumped by a woman (the getaway-driver?) at a shopping mall. Cops took him to a hospital. He has been charged with ” attempted robbery and armed criminal action.”

Mexicans--Mexicans everywhere!

by Murphy's Law in Lagniappe's Lair at 05:45, Sunday, 18 November

Long hard day yesterday. Lot if steep hill-climbing on foot, weighed down with pack, rifle and heavy armor plate because the Mexicans we were dealing with on the other side of the border fence are always armed. They have a whole network of little shacks on the south side where their spotter sit 24/7 to watch US Border Patrol and anyone else (us) and every time you glass them with binoculars, you can see them glassing you back and there's usually a long gun in plain view. I'd love to put up the pics but unfortunately they'd disclose exactly where we're at and even give a good idea where we're observing from.

And they're not just on the other side. It's routine here to find sign indicating that spotters or scouts have been setting up on high hills well inside the US, also to watch us and guide their drug loads through. They've even found them on the hills up above our stations, set up to look down into our housing and vehicle yards. And it's easy to tell where the Mexicans have been, be they scouts, mules or just illegals coming to steal jobs, because they throw their trash everywhere without a second thought for the "pristine wilderness area" that we're operating in.

Neighbors Were Shocked

Good thing the teenager was disarmed, for her own protection, or someone might have been hurt. Oh, wait a minute…

British 1942 Prototype Simplified…Enfield?

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 02:00, Sunday, 18 November

This rifle will be sold at Rock Island on December 1, 2018.

In 1942, the British government instituted a development program to design a new simplified rifle to replace the No4 MkI Lee Enfield. The CSAD (Central Small Arms Department) came up with a design using a quite simple receiver machined form a small steel billet. It was a rifle wholly distinct form the Enfield, although both were chambered for the .303 British cartridge. The simplified rifle used a front-locking bolt, a simplified cocking piece, and had a magazine holding just 6 rounds. The sights were a simple 300/600 yard rear aperture, and a crude spike bayonet could be fitted either forward for use or rearward for storage.
The project never got as far as serial production, or even field trials as far as I can tell, and only a handful of prototypes were made.

Curmudgeon Blogging Not Allowed!

Guns Stolen (?)

by Jerry The Geek in Cogito Ergo Geek at 21:00, Saturday, 17 November

Somebody got into my house while I was asleep a couple of days ago.

They found a couple of handguns (a .38 snubby & a 9mm carry gun) out in the open on a bookshelf, and waltzed away with them.

 I had brought the guns out while I reviewing my firearms inventory, intending to make sure I had the recorded serial numbers. Started with the long guns, then got sleepy and just went to bed.

I didn't notice for a day that the handguns were not where I put them. I thought I had put them back in the safe (which was the reasonable thing to do) until I checked; they weren't there. And the front door was unlocked.

I checked with my landlord and he said only he and I had keys to my house.

My guess it that it was a target of opportunity ... but is someone checking my front door every night to see if I left it unlocked? (I "always" lock my doors, even when I'm awake and in the house. Maybe this time I forgot the check? I can't believe that.)   And as far ask I know,  my neighbors don't know that I own firearms.   How could they?  I never talk to them ... they move in and out of the neighborhood (all...

Red Panda is Judging You

The red panda at the Indy zoo has been elusive for me thus far. This is the best shot I've gotten. It was an impromptu zoo trip, and I was fortunate to happen to have been walkabout with the new-to-me Canon 40D and the 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens when we decided to go. (For the indoor exhibits I generally fell back on my iPhone 7 plus, because the decade-old DSLR's sensor and the slow-ish zoom just weren't up to shooting moving targets in the "Oceans of the World" building.)

Picking Acorns

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 08:58, Saturday, 17 November

Eaton Rapids Joe wants acorns from a water oak tree, and I happen to have one inn my front yard.  This morning is pretty, so after the dew lifted, I went outside to see if I could find a few acorns.  Yep, they're everywhere.  So, I got down on all fours and started picking acorns out of the grass.  After just a little while I decided that it was better to get down on my belly ad pick everything in a small area, then scoot over a foot and do it again.

So, anyway, I'm laying on my belly under that tree, sifting little tiny acorns out of the grass, and I hear someone holler at me from the road.  "Are you okay?"

"Yep", I reply, "I'm fine."  I get up off my belly, and dust off.  "I'm collecting acorns for a friend"

This guy is a neighbor, lives down the road, and he thought I had had a stroke or something.  So, I explained to him that Michigan needs acorns from a water oak tree.  We visited for a few minutes ad he went on with his morning, and I went on collecting acorns.  In another half-hour, vertigo had gotten the best of me, so I decided to call a halt...

BOLO

by SayUncle in SayUncle at 10:17, Saturday, 17 November

Newsweek:

Leaving a Rolls-Royce unlocked is a risky business, as Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside has learned the hard way.

According to 640 AM radio host Andy Slater, on July 5 Whiteside bought an M16 assault rifle, along with a rifle bag and a silencer, for approximately $50,000 from Johnsons Firearms in Miami.

After purchasing the rifle, the 29-year-old drove to the University of Miami for a workout and only discovered the rifle was missing when he returned home the next day. He immediately alerted the police and told detectives he had only been at the gun store before moving to the Watsco Center for practice and eventually returning to his residence in Miami Beach.

NRA vs. Cuomo: first round goes to NRA

in Of Arms and the Law at 10:22, Saturday, 17 November

The District Court for the Northern District of New York rejected Cuomo's motion to dismiss, finding:

""allegations of direct and implied threats to insurers and financial institutions because of these entities' links with the NRA, and the allegations of resulting harm to the NRA's operations, are sufficient to make out plausible First Amendment freedom-of-speech claims."

Among the "direct and implied threats" is one contained in a press release Cuomo issued in April stating, "I am directing the Department of Financial Services to urge insurers and bankers statewide to determine whether any relationship they may have with the NRA or similar organizations sends the wrong message."

USAToday has an article today that has some real value. They are calling it a wake-up call.

 If everything you own was destroyed today, where is your data? Your documents? Account numbers? Your pictures of everything from weddings to babies to funerals?

Here's the reality. If you don't have backups, it's not important to you. The more important it is, the better your backups are.

User files on my local hard drive? Once a week onto a portable drive. The scanned archive of 9,000 images that spans everything from tintypes of my great-great-grandparents to recent digital images of my grandson, organized into a genealogical structure, with documents and history? I have backups, off site backups, and three members of my family that live in other states have a very recent copy.

You can get a new car, even a new house, but some things are irreplaceable. It's impossible to ever know it won't be lost, all you can do is make it difficult.

Blogging has been little light for the past day or so. But you try being without electricity for 48 hours (or more actually). It takes a lot of time and energy to feed the fireplace, to keep the house heated.

And yes, I can actually heat my house with wood. When the power came back on, I had to raise the thermostat to be sure the furnace was working, because the fireplace (with insert) had heated the house to a warmer temperature than I usually keep it. So it’s possible, it’s just not very much fun.

The situation here now

by Murphy's Law in Lagniappe's Lair at 06:46, Saturday, 17 November

The media isn't saying much now but there are currently FOUR caravan groups on the way, comprising about ten thousand illegals , mostly fro Honduras, Guatemala and el salvador. The largest group is already in Tijuana, Mexico, about 5,000 of them, and pressure is building there as Tijuana doesn't want them any more than we do. The Mexican government is doing all that it can to move these groups directly to our ports of entry because that's easier for them than trying to turn them around. These groups are mostly male, totally without money or food, and they are stealing whatever they can unless Mexican community groups "donate" supplies for them. They have attacked Mexican police and government officials and boast about doing the same when they get here, wirth many talking about just breaching our ports of entry en masse and not even trying to ask for asylum. Many of them just want to try to overwhelm our border forces then try to get lost in our border cities before we can apprehend them.

Imagine thousands at once running through our checkpoints into San Diego or Nogales. That's the plan for many of them as soon as they all get here.

But despite that, there is something about my experience among New York’s literati that’s left a bad taste in my mouth. For all the predictable speechifying about “diversity” that I heard at cocktail parties and literary events, I became struck by just how politically monolithic this scene really is.

This is “CeLLOOPa” by the Piano Guys. It is from their 2016 album Uncharted. (When YouTube tells you the video is “unavailable” that’s because Alphabet corporation really, really hates the privacy extensions in your browser. Use the link above.)

And no matter the kind of music you like or listen to, you might consider buying an album from someone you like. People need to make a living if they are going to keep playing music.

A HUGE gun ban push in a few months after she gets the gavel.  Her or whomever.  But I am confident she will fend off challenges.

Of course.   This gun ban legislation, now, is as dependable as the sunrise.  It also, if it is the huge overreach they seem to be implying, doomed to failure in the Senate and by Trump's veto pen.

(If they were smart they'd go small ball with something passable and maybe trick Trump into signing it and thus hurting his 2020 chances.  IF they were smart...)

So.  Big flashy tyrannical bill.  January February time frame.  That means big panicky gun sales panic, maybe.

We see this coming months out.  Probable result: prices are going to go up.  Shortage are going to happen.  Slow motion train wreck we can see miles ahead of time.

Time to plan and act.

British World War One SMLE Sniper Rifle

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 02:00, Saturday, 17 November

This rifle is being sold at Rock Island on December 1, 2018.

The British started World War One without a sniper program, but were quick to develop one once faced with the threat of well-trained German snipers. The initial equipment used by the British was a motley collection of commercial hunting rifles, but by 1915 the government was issuing contract to mount mostly 3x and 4x telescopes on SMLE and Pattern 1914 rifles. About 10,000 scoped sniper rifles were issued in total during the war using a variety of scopes and mount types (a standardized pattern would not be adopted until 1918). The example we have here today is the most common type; an SMLE with an offset Periscopic Prism Company scope using a 5-screw mount assembled by the same company. Later in the war the offset mounts would slowly fall out of favor to the center-mounted scopes, which allowed better shooting at the co...

This week, we lost Stan Lee, Roy Clark, and William Goldman. Each dream weavers in their own right. My inner child wants to hide away with their creations, but I’m comforted in knowing that the joy they brought me can live on for many generations to come. Great power, and all that.

 

White Women Trying To Look Black

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 14:28, Friday, 16 November

A friend and I were discussing this earlier this week, ad I started to post on it.  Rachel Dolezal, for  example.  A woman who is white, trying to be black, or Indian (our lily-white senator from Massachusetts, for example).  There seems to be some cachet these days to be anything but white.  And I don't understand it. 

I thought that perhaps my own perceptions were seeing something that wasn't really there.  But, evidently, I"m not the only one who is noticing it.  Ann Althouse, for example.

"In a trend that is not new or surprising, white women seem to be adopting the features of black women on social media in their quest..." "... to develop themselves as models and influencers. 
I remember a time when light-skinned black women would attempt to pass themselves as white, assuming that some sort of advantage would flow from it.  I don't know.   The whole thing confuses me, mainly because we're supposed to be i post-racial America, the great melting-pot of the world, and ...

Walther Recall

I am cleaning out Fibber McGee's closet.  I found a collection of gas mask filters, which when I bought the masks were represented as Israeli surplus.  The markings on the filters are in German.  And apparently made by a company called Auer,  The connector is 30mm, and has a strong resemblance to this filter for a German WW2 gas mask.  This may just be a coincidence, induced by similar needs.

If the filters are WW2 era, then the masks, bought with these filters, probably are too, and thus valuable.  Can you enlighten me?

"Red Flag Law" leaves man dead

I wonder how those laws square with the Fourth Amendment? Unless the person on the receiving end cooperates, police must search the home. There's no probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. And a residence is at the core of Fourth Amendment protections. Would the courts uphold a search warrant based upon a relative's prediction that the homeowner is at risk commit a crime in the future, unless stopped?

Second Amendment Foundation: SAF, NRA FILE FEDERAL LAWSUIT CHALLENGING INITIATIVE 1639

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation and National Rifle Association have filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging gun control Initiative 1639 in Washington State, on several grounds.


The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. In addition to SAF and NRA, plaintiffs include gun dealers and young adults in the affected age group.

The lawsuit challenges the measure on the grounds that it violates the commerce clause by banning sales of rifles to non-residents, and that it unconstitutionally impairs the rights guaranteed by the First, Second and Fourteenth Amendments, and Article I Section 24 of the Washington State constitution by preventing the sale to otherwise qualified adults under age 21 of certain rifles.

For those unfamiliar, Choke Point consisted of bureaucrats in several independent federal agencies taking it upon themselves to shut legal businesses – such as payday lenders and firearms dealers – out of the banking system. Given the nature of the U.S. regulatory framework, this operation was easy to pull off.

Officials at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), for instance, simply had to inform the banks they were overseeing that the government considered certain types of their customers “high risk.” The mere implication of a threat was enough to pressure banks into closing accounts, because no U.S. bank wants anything to do with extra audits or investigations from their regulator, much less additional operating restrictions or civil and criminal charges.

It is now clear that these unelected government officials set out to harm law-abiding citizens. Yet many of the government officials named in these documents are still employed by the same government agency. Most of these folks work at the FDIC, and one has even moved up from a regiona...

Ivy King was the largest fission explosion tested by the United State. It was detonated on November 16, 1952. It was a 500 kiloton device, and unlike the Mike shot (which was 2 stories high, and weighed in at about 80 tons) could have been carried by the bombers of the day.

FAL Paratrooper 50.63

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 02:00, Friday, 16 November

This rifle is being sold at Rock Island on November 30, 2018.

FN introduced the paratrooper folding-stock version of the FAL rifle in the early 1960s, and it became a very popular addition to their rifle line. Since the recoil spring on the standard pattern FAL runs down the length of the buttstock, fitting a side folding stock required a redesign to the internal parts, moving the recoil spring in front go the bolt, inside the top cover. For this reason, standard and paratrooper lower receivers, top covers, springs, and bolt carriers are not interchangeable. In addition to those changes, FN developed the folding charging handle for these rifles and shortened their barrels to approximately 17 3/8 inches. The standard muzzle brake was used, and the standard handguards and folding bipod also fitted. The rear sight was fixed, with just a single 250m aperture.

SWATTING

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 18:00, Thursday, 15 November

Swatting is the recent mischief of placing a hoax call to police, telling them that an horrific crime is being committed, and then watching the mayhem from another location.  It's a despicable act, placing both the police and the people at the called-in address in great danger.

As a cop, when you respond to one of these call and "go in hot",  adrenaline pumping, hopefully someone is able to figure out quickly that it was a hoax call and no one gets hurt.    But, sometimes things go horribly wrong.  Like in this case in Witchita KS.
Most of the time, the police respond and figure out that nothing was going on before anyone gets hurt, but it doesn’t always happen that way.
Now, a man responsible for a fatal swatting call has pled guilty to 51 charges stemming from his actions.
Fifty-one charges?  That prosecutor was busy in the books.  I can think of a half-dozen charges I could cite for making a prank call that resulted in a death, but 51?  And as a part of a plea deal, I wond...

Season's Change

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 17:00, Thursday, 15 November

We had the first frost of the season this morning, with temps in the high 20s.  One small now flurry yesterday, which is unheard of in central Louisiana in mid-November.  The season's are changing, and I've even put the liner in my duty jacket, which doesn't normally happen till after Christmas.

One other change, is that I've switched from my summer vodka/tonic to my winter bourbon and coke. Y'all know that I love whiskey, but believe in moderation in all things, except loving a good woman, which should be done enthusiastically.

My to-to, day-in-and-day-out whiskey for mixing with coke (or diet coke, in my case), is either Jim Beam white or Evan Williams, whichever strikes my fancy at the time.  But I buy it in the transmission size.  You know, the big bottle.  When you turn it on its side, it looks like a transmission.

Reloading 357 Magnum On The Lee Classic Turret Press

by Mr. RevolverGuy in Day At The Range at 18:07, Thursday, 15 November

4 Hole Lee Classic Turret Press

Hi all I am Mr.Revolverguy and I am a reload-a-holic. In my previous video you watched me load 6.5 Creedmoor on a single stage press, which is how I do all of my rifle rounds. In this video I use a Lee Classic Turret press to load up some 357 Magnum. Having an affection for revolvers I tend to shoot a bit more of the 357 which requires a press with a little more throughput.

Stay tuned up next is 38 special on a fully progressive press.

Correction

Correction I mention I have had this press for 18 years. I was looking at the wrong receipt; this press I purchased in 2008 so it is 10 years old.

Economics

One of the better qualities is low cost caliber conversions with this press. Those calibers where you want to load a couple hundred rounds with minimal fuss with minimal investment this press is the one for you. A progressive press can add up quickly in a caliber conversion before you add in dies.

Digital Night Vision: Is It Worth While?

by Nicholas C in The Firearm Blog at 17:00, Thursday, 15 November

Actual night vision is typically rather pricey.

POTD: Shortest Barrel SMLE

My neurologist prescribed klonepin some months back to help the speech and swallowing issues that are side effects of the two strokes in 2015.  (Bihemispheric strokes often impair speech even for those of us lucky enough to be left-handed.) 

I have spent more than a week trying to get the neurologist's office and the pharmacy to coordinate refilling it.  It clearly helps the speech and to a lesser extent, the swallowing problem.  My wife, daughter, and son-in-law all said it helped, but I was not convinced.  Being off it for two weeks had persuaded me they were right.

Anyway, I finally did the long drive to the neurologist to get a paper copy of the prescription since emails and FAX machines were clearly the enemy.  When we reached the office, the prescription had finally reached the pharmacy.  When the receptionist asked what drug, she said not to say the name, but to write it down.  At which point my wife muttered "Gub."

Bumping off… REALITY

by Carl Bussjaeger in The Zelman Partisans at 13:12, Thursday, 15 November

I had occasion to review the status of the coming bump-fire stock rule today.

The basic lie about how bump-fire stocks operate is still there, naturally.

This rule is intended to clarify that the statutory definition of machinegun includes certain devices (i.e., bump-stock-type devices) that, when affixed to a firearm, allow that firearm to fire automatically with a single function of the trigger, such that they are subject to regulation under the National Firearms Act (NFA) and the Gun Control Act (GCA).

But the real fun part is down in “Anticipated Costs and Benefits.”

It is anticipated that the rule will cost $129,222,483 million in the first year (the year with the highest costs).

“$129,222,483 million”

$129,222,483… MILLION.

Kristallnacht 80 years later

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 13:02, Thursday, 15 November

By Nathan Barton

My apologies to readers and friends, that I overlooked the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Pogromnacht of 09 November 1938, just two days shy of 20 years after the end of the Great War, and one of the incidents in Germany leading up to the Second World War.

See the source imageThe Night of the Broken Glass, 09 November 1938.

The shock of this event is remembered to this day.  Back in the 1980s, and still today, streets that had been the scene of vandalism and looting (seen above in an unknown city) were still recognizable, though no longer housing shops owned and operated by Jews, who are virtually nonexistent in Germany today.

What If You Called 911 And No One Answered?

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 15:00, Thursday, 15 November

It is happening more and more around the country, as cities find it hard to hire people for 911 centers. Reaching 911 in Indianapolis can take minutes, not seconds.

A mother calls 911 when her child collapses and starts to have a seizure. She gets a recorded message telling her not to hang up, her call will be answered.

“I just sat on hold waiting for someone to help me,” O’Conner said. “It seemed like an eternity. I was terrified. I thought I was going to lose my daughter.”

She waited 6 minutes for her call to be answered.

A lot of truly bad things can happen in 6 minutes. You should have a plan as to what to do. Whether that is CPR or defend yourself from a violent attack.

Politicians are shocked that people won’t work hard jobs for pittance, just because that’s what the city if offering. (911 dispatchers can earn more in neighboring counties than they can in Indianapolis.)

Back to the Future...

by Tam in View From The Porch at 11:27, Thursday, 15 November

Currently underway is a 2,000-round test on a Ruger P89. The P-series Rugers had a reputation on the internet (Usenet rec.guns and later gun forums on the web) for being reliable, but those were the days when "flawless reliability" was a pretty nebulous thing.

It will be interesting to see how it runs and compare it to shooting newer test guns. Personally, I vastly preferred the 5906 I ran earlier this year to the P89.

It's worth noting, however, that the MSRP in the 1993 Gun Buyer's Annual for the Ruger was $410, which is a good bit less than the $672 Smith & Wesson wanted for a 5906 with fixed sights. (The blued steel and alloy 5904, perhaps a more direct comparison to ...

The Grand Realignment

by Sebastian in Shall Not Be Questioned at 10:09, Thursday, 15 November

Salena Zito has an article out in the Washington Examiner that’s worth your time. The whole notion that “The Republicans have lost the suburbs” is way overstated. If that were true, the Dems blue wave would have materialized as they expected, rather than being a historically ho-hum midterm performance for the party out of power. But that’s not to say I think the Republicans are playing all the right moves. The Dems are doing a far better job of selling to wealthy suburbanites than the GOP is doing of selling to working class voters. What you’re seeing now is wealthy suburbs shifting hard for Democrats, while working class suburbs that have been traditionally democratic are shifting more slowly.

The GOP will find its home not necessarily just with blue collar workers: there’s whole classes of educated, middle-class voters out there who are working professional jobs, but aren’t rich enough to afford the wild redistributionist schemes of the progressive left. We are...
