Ruling here. It's a long one, I haven't had time to read and outline it yet. But some courts can be inventive in getting around a law they don't like, and a skim sounds like that's the case here.

Mass Murder Prevented

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 15:27, Wednesday, 25 May

 Chicago, Ill. (1947)

05/18/1947: Three murderers attempted a robbery at a party of 32 people, which included a judge and his bailiff.  While the robbers lined up the women in the kitchen, the bailiff retrieved his pistol.  Another guest tripped one of the robbers; the bailiff shot one robber.  The other two robbers then shot to death the bailiff and another guest.

Federal Gun Licensing

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 15:24, Wednesday, 25 May

The Democrats are screaming for this.  Two questions:


1. What would a federal license have done in Texas?  He bought the rifles after his 18th birthday so likely a dealer sale with background check.  What else would a license do?  Show that he liked to wear black eyeliner?  So licensing will be transphobic?  He dropped out of high school?  Will graduation be required?  A full psychiatric evaluation would likely have raised flags but how many people have little eccentricities.  Some of them are throupled members of Congress.

2. "Like a driver's license." You mean available to anyone without public safety implicated crimes?  You mean with a safety test that only the dumbest fail?

Yes.  Like a driver's license.  Good anywhere in America.   Valid to carry, possess or buy any gun in any state.  I can rent a car at a...

Indian Land Dispossesion

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 13:02, Wednesday, 25 May

 From the manifesto of the Buffalo mass murderer:

By living in the United States, weren’t you an immigrant yourself? 

Yes, and it seems we immigrants seem to bring a whole host of issues. Although the land technically belongs to its native people, The United States now belongs to Whites because removing Whites from all of the United States is impossible. They are simply rooted too deeply into the land. The same thing applies with other White countries that are not in Europe.[emphasis added]

The rest of the manifesto is sort of environmentalist-nationalist.  Loudly, not a Christian or conservative.

I’d probably have said “progressives” rather than “Democrats” because some Democrats still think rationally about guns. ] The political left loves to paint gun violence as a public health crisis – an epidemic, according to the Biden administration – […]

The Dry Martini

by JDZ in Never Yet Melted at 13:39, Wednesday, 25 May

Bird Dog, on Maggie’s Farm, linked Roger Angell’s New Yorker 2002 tribute to the greatest of all cocktails, the Martini.

The Martini is in, the Martini is back—or so young friends assure me. At Angelo and Maxie’s, on Park Avenue South, a thirtyish man with backswept Gordon Gekko hair lowers his cell as the bartender comes by and says, “Eddie, gimme a Bombay Sapphire, up.” At Patroon, a possibly married couple want two dirty Tanquerays—gin Martinis straight up, with the bits and leavings of a bottle of olives stirred in. At Nobu, a da...

This almost went under my radar.  Brandon's Dept of Ed has declared that unless schools allow boys to use girls' bathrooms and showers and let faculty and staff cross-dress, then the school won't get any federal money for lunches, breakfasts, and snacks.  This comes on the heels of reports that showed how school closures and loss of access to school meals particularly affected poor students.

Control of food has always been in the tyrant's handbook and it looks like fed.gov is using it to force compliance on schools who really like to see kids get fed.  

The poor and girls are both going to bear the brunt of being pawns in this particular game.

The executive branch has been completely weaponized and is being used to circumvent the Constitution.

 Counting the Texas School Board association, who voted yesterday to leave the National School Board Association, the NSBA has lost almost half its membership (23 former members) for being government colluding asshats.  

And although they tried desperately to push it onto their former leadership, the whole Board of directors (or whatever) saw the letter and did not cry foul (maybe fowl would be more appropriate?) or try to stop it.

I note that Indiana's Association is still a member and wonder why.  Maybe I'll make a couple of phone calls...

If there’s a silver lining – or a “hoist with [her] own petard” ending to this, it’s that Brown is now a felon and prohibited by “law” from owning a gun for the rest of her life. [More]

After months of preparation, we are ready to go public with our explosive report on the ATF’s nefarious gun registry. After pouring over hundreds of pages of secret documents that we were able to secure through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we have found undeniable proof that the ATF’s registry – which they claim is only used to trace firearms used in crimes – is indeed a centralized and searchable registry of gun owners in total violation of the law.

Unplanned walkabout...

by Tam in View From The Porch at 11:21, Wednesday, 25 May

I've been shuttling an immunocompromised friend to medical appointments a couple times a week, so I figured it would probably be a good idea to stay current on shots, just to be on the safe side. Accordingly, I went and got a second Moderna booster yesterday.

My appointment was at the public lieberry at 42nd & College at 1130. The weather was lovely, so I walked to the 54th Street Red Line stop, arriving at five minutes after eleven, only to watch the southbound bus pull away just before I arrived.

"No problem," I think, "The buses run every 10-15minutes."

*glance at station monitor, which informs me the next southbound bus is 37 minutes out*

"Well, shit. I can walk to 42nd Street in 37 minutes."

So I did.

The bus, of course, whooshed past just as I was walking up to the library door.


There was a friendly rent-a-cop in a folding chair just inside the entrance, who greeted me and gestured me into the room where they were set up to augment my 5G reception.

The Texas Murderer

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 16:24, Wednesday, 25 May

5/25/22 Sky News reports he bought the two AR15 type rifles the day after his 18th birthday and that he worked part-time at a Wendy's.  I see about $1600 worth of rifles.   How does a Wendy's part timer save up that much money?


Other reports indicate that had been bullied in school and had a drug addicted mother.  Pretty typical modern family: drug addicted mother; no father mentioned; "free-range children."   I know it is not cool to say this but unless some of these destructive social patterns are disrupted, we will eventually lose.  Justices watch CNN.

There is a picture floating around purporting to show the murderer cross-dressed.  My first reaction is Fake. (Some reports describe his mental decline as including letting his grow out.  This could also be laziness, 1960s costume party, or organic version of a tinfoil hat.)    If you find a properly sourced version, let me know.

Why Not?

by Kevin in The Smallest Minority at 10:46, Wednesday, 25 May

A couple of years ago I answered a question over at Quora: Why did the Gun Control Act of 1968 fail to solve the issue of mass shootings?

In light of recent events, I thought I’d share my answer:

Mathematics.

Because a mass shooting requires only three things: A gun, someone willing to acquire, load, point and shoot the gun, and a group of three or more people other than the shooter.

There are, by several estimates, something between 300,000,000 and 500,000,000 guns currently in private hands in the United States. We have population in excess of 330,000,000 people. If 0.001% of that population meets criteria #2, they can get criteria #1. Every single day you’re probably part of criteria #3.

You’re looking at 3,300 potential shooters based on that off-the-cuff estimate.

Welcome to reality. Life is not safe.

I’ve read a lot of law, but I have not delved into the “Progressive Administrative State” as I should have. Excerpt:

The great mission of the early twentieth century Progressives was to transform our constitutional order without ever amending the Constitution itself. The intellectual leader of the movement was Woodrow Wilson. The fundamental idea was to replace the messy and contentious system of separated powers and slow bi-cameral lawmaking with a cadre of supposedly apolitical administrative “experts” who could run the country smoothly and efficiently.

The idea sounded rather benign to most people at the time, and probably still sounds benign to most people today. Who could be against having “experts” to run significant government agencies? But a hundred-plus years into this project, we have seen cancerous growth of vast administrative bureaucracies, outside the constitutional structure, and...

Arex Delta Gen2: How Gun Designs Iterate and Improve

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 09:27, Wednesday, 25 May

In firearms, as in really all technology, the market iterates and improves concepts over time. A novel new system – like the polymer-framed, striker-fired semiauto pistol – will never be perfect on its first introduction. Over time, as users and manufacturers gain more insight into the details of using and building the system, changes are made to improve it. At the same time, the cost of production comes down (especially after applicable patents have expired).

The Arex Delta Gen2 pistol is a really good example of this, I think. While offering no fundamental innovation, it is markedly better in all sorts of ways than similar pistols that preceded it. It has great handling, safe disassembly, near-universal optics compatibility, slim lines, light weight, and a good trigger. And it does this for a remarkably low price.

New York Mayor Adams Has A Problem

by Carl "Bear" Bussjaeger in The Zelman Partisans at 18:43, Tuesday, 24 May

He thinks it’s a problem with those lawfully carrying firearms.

If you are allowing people to carry guns, the good guys are no longer able to be distinguished from the bad guys because if you have a bad day, and you have a gun, that bad day can elevate to an argument.

There’s a tendency that people believe if they got a gun, ‘Why have it, if I’m not using it?’ That’s just the mindset of carrying a gun.

The problem here isn’t honest folks carrying guns. It’s Mayor Adams,

Adams believes that carrying a gun for defense means you’re suddenly going to snap, to start shooting because you’re having a bad day.

That’s called projection, Eric.

Projection is the process of displacing one’s feelings onto a different person, animal, or object. The term is most commonly used to describe defensive projection—attributing one’s own unacceptable urges to another.

Here’s a reality check, ...

100 years of Gummi Bears

by Borepatch in Borepatch at 13:56, Tuesday, 24 May

Haribo introduced Gummi Bears 100 years ago:

The first production plant was a copper kettle in his kitchen and his first employee was his wife Gertrud. He’d make hard candies and she’d deliver them on her bicycle. In 1922, Riegel invented a new confection: the Tanzbären, or Dancing Bear. It was a soft fruit-flavored candy shaped like a bear sitting on its hind legs, inspired by the sad performing bears that were so popular at the time.

 Interesting article which includes a bit on where the name "Haribo" came from.

True Blued - A Ruger Review

by Unknown in Home on the Range at 14:14, Tuesday, 24 May

Handgun hunters, pistol competitors, and cowboy action shooting folks are fans of the single action,  ideal for slow, deliberate shooting.  I was first exposed to them in the form of single-action revolvers while watching Westerns growing up. As a kid, I'd rather take a bullet than watch the Brady Bunch and the Partridge Family, which were what was "new" on TV when I was little.  So I'd curl up with Loony Tunes and new and rerun classic Westerns, with a few years of Gunsmoke and  Bonanza thrown in the mix.

The TV Western reigned supreme in the Fifties and Sixties. Unlike the post-war world in which they flourished, you could tell the good guys from the bad, and none of the guns were fu...

 The Archbishop of San Francisco put out the word that Nancy Pelosi should not get communion because of her increasing advocacy for baby-murder.  I think he was under the impression that she might, as a person who is very vocal about her religious status, give a two shits about what he said and would not present herself for communion.

He underestimated the fact that she believes her own press and feels she is above such edicts.

She went to the same Catholic church in DC that said it was okay for Biden to get communion and got her transmogriphied wine and bread there.

I don't know what the ramifications are for the priest who gave her communion.  The guy in charge in DC is a Cardinal and the guy in San Fran is an Archbishop (I think lower in the hierarchy).  Pretty sure even Pope Francis is on the same page with the Archbishop.

This might be the moment when the Church has to come off the fence.

What’s in a name?

by Sailorcurt in Captain of a Crew of One at 12:50, Tuesday, 24 May

This one made me laugh.

Apparently, an MLB player has been suspended for calling a black player on an opposing team “Jackie”.

Josh Donaldson was suspended by Major League Baseball for one game and received a fine for making “inappropriate comments” following an MLB investigation into Donaldson calling White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson “Jackie,” 

My first thought was “what moron would object to being associated with Jackie Robinson, one of the greatest baseball players in history?”

Then I read further and got to the backstory:

[in] a 2019 Sports Illustrated article…the White Sox star said, “I kind of feel like today’s Jackie Robinson. That’s huge to say. But it’s cool, man, because he changed the game, and I feel like I’m getting to a point where I need to change the game.”...

California water officials unanimously struck down a $1.4 billion plan to build a seaside desalination plant amid a water crisis sparked by megadrought and climate change.

The California Coastal Commission, which is responsible for protecting the state’s shores, voted Thursday to deny a permit to seawater desalination developer Poseidon Water to build a desalination plant in Huntington Beach.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom was among the supporters for the plan, which promised to produce 50 million gallons of drinking water a day. Steve Sheldon, president of the Orange County Water District, said the plant would make the county “drought resilient.”

Scream Fire

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 09:31, Tuesday, 24 May

You have all heard the old truism" You can't scream fire in a crowded theater.

I've heard it a lot lately, when commentators are complaining about people using their speech to highlight the failures of the Biden administration.  I've heard it a lot.  And as a general rule, that's true.  Using your voice to incite a panic will get people injured or killed, especially if you scream FIRE in a crowded theater.

Unless the theater is actively ablaze.

Lots of folks are saying that they could simply not believe that things could get this bad under Joe Biden.  A sputtering economy, cities awash in crime, a total lack of control at the southern border, soaring fuel prices, food shortages (baby formula??), the list goes on.  We have a president who seems to cascade from one disaster to another, and never really manages to solve one problem before two more crop up.

It is impossible to attribute all this to sheer incompetence.  And Joe told us yesterday that our economy was being transformed.  So, if it is not incompetence, it must be by design.

There's more data coming out and the media cover up is already up and running.  Almost two hundred children worldwide, have developed serious hepatitis.  Twelve children have died.  They're now trying to make a link between covid and a certain kind of adenovirus.  Neither one is known to cause liver issues.

However, the covid shots ARE known to cause liver issues, with DNA changes happening in livers within six hours of injection.  The 'scientists' are not really answering any questions about the injection status of these children.  

There is an internet hypothesis that the younger children were breastfed by mothers who were injected (as a side note, pregnant and breastfeeding women were left out of the clinical trials.  No data exists regarding safety for this cohort).

It occurs to me that one of the reasons they are trying to link this to covid so strongly might be due to the fact that the CDC, despite having any real data over efficacy or safety, has approved boosters for 5-11 year olds and shots for age 6 months to 4 years is in the works.

What About the 20 Gauge for Home Protection?

by Greg Ellifritz in Active Response Training at 06:49, Tuesday, 24 May

 

After seeing a  guest post about the need to have a self defense shotgun, several readers asked me questions about the 20 gauge.  Here is one:

 

“Nice article on the shotgun for defensive use. Good to see the old stand by’s discussed from time to time.

Reaping What they Sow

by Sailorcurt in Captain of a Crew of One at 13:05, Monday, 23 May

For decades now “climate scientists” have been making dire predictions, setting timelines and proclaiming that “tipping points” will be reached on some arbitrary date.

Of course those predictions never come to fruition and the tipping point dates keep getting moved back and back and back.

But after being indoctrinated from birth that the end is near, we’re killing the planet and if we don’t change our ways before x date, we’re all doomed, many of the younger generation seem to be convinced that it’s too late.

The problem is, if it’s too late, why bother?

I mean, if we’re past the “tipping point” and the planet is doomed no matter what we do, why give up a life of relative wealth and ease for nothing? Heck, we might was well live it up until the end right?

Which has the climate alarmists exclaiming “oh crap” and desperately trying to wave away the fact that, according to their past predictions, it’s already too late and has been for a lon...

You do know that aglets are the little plastic pieces on the ends of shoelaces that make it easy to put the shoelaces through the tiny holes in your running shoes (or in my case, walking shoes), right?  They never last as long as the shoelaces for me.  Once they have broken off, getting your shoelaces through the holes becomes downright impossible.  While trying to get the shoelace through the top holes this morning, I was inspired.  

1. Grab some small tweezers.

2. Grab the very tip of the shoelace.

3. Push it through the hole.

4, Grab the shoelace on the other side.

5. Release tweezers.

6. Pull tweezers out.

You may need to enlarge the hole with the tweezers first to get them through the hole.

Beautiful Perrin Revolving Carbine

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 09:27, Monday, 23 May

The Perrin was an 1859 revolver design originating in France, which was initially an open-frame, double-action-only system. It went through some significant improvements in 1865, including a single action mechanism and a fully enclosed frame for greater strength. The Perrin used a quite modern centerfire cartridge, albeit with a very thick rim (as one can see in the chambers of this example). In 1865, a carbine version of the Perrin was also introduced. It was proposed to the French Army as a military arm, on the basis of offering six shots to the one of the new 1866 Chassepot – but it was (not surprisingly) rejected. A few were sold to French officers individually, though.

The National School Board Association has 'apologized' for its (former) leadership's collusion with the DOJ and the White House (at least one person involved got a nice cushy gig with the Feds).  

The letter that they sent has started a new era of bringing the FBI and Dept of 'Justice' down on the heads of parents who are, in most cases, concerned and angry about what is happening in their public schools.

As horrible as the result has been (parents being labeled and treated as domestic terrorists), drafts were much worse--calling for the National Guard and military police to come and 'monitor' school board meetings.

In typical mealy mouth fashion, the NSBA promises to 'do better' going forward (how on earth could they do worse?).  But there's nothing that says that they are sending a new letter to the DOJ denouncing the original document, excoriating the ones w...

Preparedness Notes for Monday — May 23, 2022

by James Wesley Rawles in SurvivalBlog.com at 03:05, Monday, 23 May

May 23 is the birthday of George Lars Kellgren (born 1943 in Borås, Sweden), the founder and chief engineer of Kel-Tec. According to LeftistAgendaPedia: He designed many firearms earlier for Husqvarna and Swedish Interdynamics AB in Sweden. He moved to the US in 1979 and his original US designs were for Intratec and Grendel brand firearms. He founded Kel-Tec in 1991. On this day in 1934 the outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were killed by a pair of deputized former Texas Rangers and assorted local police, near Gibbsland, Louisiana. — Today’s feature article is a review written by our …

Wellco Military Boots, by Pat Cascio

by Pat Cascio in SurvivalBlog.com at 03:04, Monday, 23 May

One of the absolute best pieces of kit you can purchase is quality footwear that you can afford to buy. If you’re seriously into preparedness, and have any plans on bugging out – especially on-foot, then you need some really outstanding boots. I’m very particular when it comes to my footwear. I have been for most of life. I refuse to buy cheap Chinese-made knock-off boots. I don’t buy at the ten buck shoe store, nor any of the big or small box stores. While mainland China boots and shoes might look good, you’ll find out in very short order …

GTM Original, aka Gun Tote’n Mamas, continues its support for national women’s shooting organizations through funding and showing up. Two powerhouse shooting groups – Shoot Like A Girl and A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League – benefit from GTM’s belief in the mission to educate women shooters.

GTM is in its third year of a trusted partnership with Shoot Like A Girl (SLG2), a women’s shooting organization that offers a trailer – complete with a crew of certified instructors – that travels the US. The trailer comes equipped with Firearms Test Shots, where women can shoot either a 9mm pistol or a .223 rifle with the use of a military grade firearms simulation system and also, shoot a bow on a live archery range. Shoot Like A Girl also offers a store onsite, so that clients may have hands-on experiences with various firearms, bows and of course, GTM concealed-carry purses. The beauty of this storefront is that SLG2 appears in Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s parking lots across the country, and these stores also carry GTM’s fine line of bags within their walls, making it easy for...
