Things heating up in Virginia

in Of Arms and the Law at 18:08, Friday, 13 December

"Second Amendment sanctuary" resolutions have been adopted by 75 of Virginia's 95 counties, and and the anti-gun politicians are reacting. Proposals range from prosecuting sheriffs for violating their oaths of office (laughable) to sending in the National Guard (what could they do, even if they wanted to?).

Further proof that this is not about fighting crime -- it's a front in the culture-war, and those on the other side have now lost their minds.

Oysters!

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 15:56, Friday, 13 December

My buddy Termite brought us oysters.  Fresh oysters from the Gulf.  We melt some garlic butter in a muffin tin then add an oyster to each muffin hole.  Run it under the broiler for a bit, then take it out, add cheese and put it back in the broiler until the cheese melts.


We eat them on crackers, either saltine or ritz,, depending on your taste, .  A half gallon of oysters yields about four dozen and with the boys help, we made shot work of Termite's largess.

There's no substitute for legitimacy

by Borepatch in Borepatch at 07:35, Friday, 13 December

Against legitimacy is arrayed usurpation; against modest, single-minded, righteous, and brave resistance to encroachment is arrayed boastful, double-tongued, selfish, and treacherous ambition to possess. God defend the right!
― Charlotte Brontë
The global elites have been searching for an alternative to representative democracy as a source of legitimacy for two decades.  They haven't come up with a viable alternative.  Sure, the EU was successful in their keep voting on EU referendums until you vote the right way but that was only on the continent, and while it gave the EU political power it didn't give it political legitimacy.  Not legitimacy in the sense that we've come to think of it over the course of the 19th and 20th Centuries.

While the elites have generally been able to tamp down the opposition, the lid is starting to come off all over the world.

What Gun Control is About

by Sebastian in Shall Not Be Questioned at 07:38, Friday, 13 December

The Curly Effect:

James Michael Curley, a four-time mayor of Boston, used wasteful redistribution to his poor Irish constituents and incendiary rhetoric to encourage richer citizens to emigrate from Boston, thereby shaping the electorate in his favor. Boston as a consequence stagnated, but Curley kept winning elections. We present a model of the Curley effect, in which inefficient redistributive policies are sought not by interest groups protecting their rents, but by incumbent politicians trying to shape the electorate through emigration of their opponents or reinforcement of class identities. The model sheds light on ethnic politics in the United States and abroad, as well as on class politics in many countries including Britain.

Gun Control is effectively being used for this purpose by the Democrats, and it’s probably not as destructive to a blue enclave as redistributive policies would be, since gun owners are generally less common in the upper classes, and those that are can afford to get around gun control laws anyway. Sure, you’ll loose skill...

Anti-Vax

by New Jovian Thunderbolt in New Jovian Thunderbolt at 03:30, Friday, 13 December

That's me.

I go to my new doctor.  "Have you gotten your flu shot this year?"

Oh hell no, Doc.  Never never.  All that hassle and mild symptom reaction to the a damn this that is what?  5% effective?  No thank you.  Call me when it gets multi-spectrum.

"How bout a shingles vaccine?"

Please!  Yes!  Hurry hurry hurry!  I'm not CRAZY.  Gimme that shot!

My arm is sore right now.  Good.  Get the second one in March.  Grandma had shingles and she really suffered with it, the poor thing.

But I think it is still rational to avoid flu shots at this time.  And hope for an improvement or breakthrough.  Or when I get to be a little more frail as I age.  When that 5% makes more sense. 

The side effects are standard.  I get what feels like a punch-in-the-arm-bruise pain at the shot sight, and I always get the mildest of flu like symptoms.  Nothing going to bed early doesn't fix up in a trice.  And nothing bad enough to scare me away from getting a shot, unless that shot is useless, like flu.

Waiting for Christmas

by Unknown in Home on the Range at 04:25, Friday, 13 December

Sometimes waiting for something is the best part.

Christmas was like that as a child, the build-up to the big day, shaking the presents under the tree, many which had been rigged with marbles or rocks inside to throw us off. Mom would make a couple of different types of cookies every few days, something new to taste and try with a plate set aside with a sample of everything to eat after the Christmas meal.

It's not just Christmas - there are many events in our lives we anxiously await. The birth of a baby, a holiday, a wedding, awaited with great longing, then suddenly over, vanished as if an illusion.

A reply to Gun Watch

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 05:00, Friday, 13 December

An article published recently on Gun Watch, How judges ignore law and the Constitution on gun rights, was reposted by JPFO recently.

The article makes many good points about how Regressives and Tranzis (which the article calls “Progressives”) and Nazgul (judges) seek to twist their role and steal liberties away from people – all but the elite, of course. The writer challenges and answers the naive argument too many people make: we only have to get to the court(s) and present the plain and simple words in the Bill of Rights to them, and all the bogus, immoral, illegal, and unconstitutional gun control laws will go away.

Too many Americans believe what they were taught in civics class or even in grade school. “You will get a fair hearing and your rights are protected in the court system.” Right. Just like teaching children, “Mr. Policeman is your friend.” Tell that to hundreds of thouaands of victims of the so-called justice system, and tens of thousands of victims (or their families) of the police.

Huot Automatic Rifle: The Ross Goes Full Auto

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 05:27, Friday, 13 December

During World War One, Joseph Alphonse Huot, a Canadian machinist and blacksmith living in Quebec, designed a conversion of the Ross MkIII rifle to become an automatic rifle. The Ross was the standard issue Canadian rifle at the beginning of the war, and Huopt wanted to find a way to economically provide Canadian forces with an automatic weapon. His conversion functioned by mounting a gas piston onto the side of the Ross barrel, adding a large action cover and 25-round drum magazine, and a Lewis-style cooling shroud over the barrel.

In initial testing with Canadian forces, the Huot performed well. It was seriously considered for adoption, but had to undergo British testing and approval before that could happen. In British testing (by now near the end of the war), it was found to run well enough and have some positive attributes, but not sufficient to justify replacement of the Lewis Gun. It was reje...

Bread and circuses: the impeachment show

I’ve said very little about this pitiful reality show. And I won’t say much now – far more able people than I have written and spoken hundreds of thousands of words about this clown act. On a scale of 1 to 10, I rank it a zero.

Want to provide examples of the deterioration of the political life of these Fifty States? We now have more than enough for three-semester, nine-credit-hour class.

Let me repeat, for the record, that I am no fan of Donald Trump.

I have no doubt that he has done many things that (a) are “high crimes and misdemeanors” as contemplated by the Founding Fathers, and (b) “abuses of power” and “obstructing Congress.” Just as virtually EVERY president (starting with George Washington) has done. Time after time after time. Including violations of the Constitution, statute law (federal and state and local – even tribal!), and the law of nature and nature’s God.

Here's their website, where I see they're soliciting donations-- and also presenting "conservative consensus" quotes with no indication that the politicians who said them have any actual affiliation with the group.

So who are these guys? Because all Who.Is shows is a proxy in Panama.

This Image Tells It All

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 10:00, Thursday, 12 December

I see this image occasionally, and while it's true that our President does things, sometimes that seems to do more harm than good, it is illustrative to see how he is viewed by others.  The bigger take-away is how the media portays guns and their total lack of understanding of how firearms work.


Yes, gentle reader, he is using a revolver to shoot his own foot, and it is ejecting the brass of the spent cartridges.  The image is patently ignorant, yet these are the same people who want to tell us what guns we can have and which we cannot have.

Quote of the day—Oleg Volk

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 06:00, Thursday, 12 December

The recent terrorist event in the zoo previously known as Great Britain illustrated the unfortunate decline of that people. On the one hand, brave residents went after the perpetrator of violence with all available tools. On the other, the sole available weapon was a narwhal tusk in its original shape, not even fashioned into a proper spear. That’s Paleolith-level tool, no better than those available to Neanderthals.

Oleg Volk
November 30, 2019
Paleolithic Britain
[As I have not heard any whining from people in (formerly) Great Britain about a subject using such a tool for defense of innocent life is considered acceptable behavior. One has to wonder what it would take for these people to think it appropriate to use a more civilized tool.

I wonder if they are permanently stuck in the mindset of a subject as opposed to a free citizen.—Joe]

System Working as Intended

Of the 345,547 ammunition background checks performed, only 101 stopped the buyer because he or she was a “prohibited person” who can’t legally possess ammunition, according to state Department of Justice data. Yet another 62,000 ammunition purchases were rejected as well. Those people left empty-handed because their personal information hadn’t been entered into the state’s system, or the information on their identification cards didn’t match what officials had entered into the California gun registry database, which retail sellers must review when they do the ammunition background check.

Implications of defining "democracy" for 2019 and beyond

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 05:00, Thursday, 12 December

By Nathan Barton

In my last commentary on this subject, I did a brief analysis of ways in which the US Constitution is NOT democratic. And why the Democratic wing of the Regressives in the US Congress believe that to be the case, despite their frequent claims that the formerly united American union IS a democracy.

Of course, because of that, these people hate the Constitution and the government formed under it. Even though they have perverted that government and do so more and more. (With, of course, the active if less public cooperation of the Republicans.)

But perhaps, this deeply hidden but plausible belief may explain some current events and the behavior of some key persons.

We know that Speaker Pelosi does NOT consider Donald Trump to be a legitimate president, both because his election was influenced by the Russians (and Ukrainians, and everyone else Boris and Natasha are working for), AND because he was not democratically elected – he did not win the popular vote.

Maybe I’m Wrong

by Sebastian in Shall Not Be Questioned at 08:39, Thursday, 12 December

I’ve been saying the boogaloo will probably start in Oregon, but I might need to rethink that prediction, since it seems Oregon Democrats are smarter than Virginia Democrats.

Democratic Virginia Rep. Donald McEachin suggested cutting off state funds to counties that do not comply with any gun control measures that pass in Richmond. 

“They certainly risk funding, because if the sheriff’s department is not going to enforce the law, they’re going to lose money. The counties’ attorneys offices are not going to have the money to prosecute because their prosecutions are going to go down,” he said. 

McEachin also noted that Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam could call the National Guard, if necessary.

Easy Peazy

by New Jovian Thunderbolt in New Jovian Thunderbolt at 04:00, Thursday, 12 December

S&W have upped their M&P Shield EZ to offer a 9mm to go with the .380.

Intrigued, I am.  I've heard good things about the .380 version, and I'd get it to have something to introduce new shooters with, especially if they are older new shooters. 

I mean, I like the idea of the single stack Shield already.  I'm not in love with the concept, but it also doesn't drive me away. 

Plus, you never know when my own age will catch up to me.  Having this already in hand would be a help, in Maryland.  Neurological issues or arthritis could rear its ugly head.   

Huh, it's not a striker fired gun, apparently.  Internal hammer. 

The review make is sound a little snappy in the recoil department.

Robo Calls

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 04:22, Thursday, 12 December

We all get them, those infuriating calls that come across our telephones, trying to help us with Medicare benefits, or computer support, or a car warranty. 

Several years ago, I added our numbers to the US Do Not Call list, which never expires and which they routinely ignore.  The question, for me at least, is whether or not I'm talking with a machine, or a sentient person.  And yes, sometimes I'll wait to talk to a representative.  When I know that I have an actual, breathing human on the line, I start having my fun.  I curse them artfully, often using archaic terms, to call into question their heritage, intelligence, and sexual proclivities.  This practice helps me expand my vocabulary and use terms not commonly in vogue today.  Being fully retired, as I am now, this recreation helps keep my mind nimble and my soul amused.

One moron told me yesterday that he had no idea what a "catamite" was, so I told him that he should immediately seek a dictionary,, preferably a printed one, and study the English language.  While he was at it, he should look up coprophilia,  because I feared that he suffered from that condition...

When it comes to firearms safety, there’s a lot more than meets the eye. If there are firearms in the home, it’s important for both parents and children to not only learn about proper storage, but also safe handling.

The Mask is off

by Sheila Stokes in The Zelman Partisans at 03:58, Thursday, 12 December

I hear it quite often, “I’m not antisemitic, I’m anti-Zionist, I’m anti-Israel. Well, let’s just call that what it is, shall we? Horse-schiff. It is antisemitic.

There is one tiny Jewish nation, there are around 50 muslim countries not counting Germanistan, Francistan and Englandistan. No one seems to have a problem with this. Certainly the UN doesn’t. They should. When the UN replaced the League of Nations it agreed to take on all the League of Nations mandates and agreements. See, they were liars even back then. From Barry Shaw’s The View from Israel

The Europeans take no account of the fact that, prior to 1948, the so-called West Bank was Israel in territory that included Judea & Samaria, the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea down to Eilat.

They take no account that this was prescribed by the League of Nations (the forerunners of the United Nations) in 1922 in which they affirmed the 1920 decision of the Supreme Court of the League of Nations that “recognized the historical connection of the J...

California's new ammo controls...

in Of Arms and the Law at 15:47, Wednesday, 11 December

California requires a background check for ammo purchase, and the score now stands at 101 buyers properly rejected and 62,000 improperly denied.

It also limits your ammunition to that required by a gun registered to you. A Brady Campaign spokesman says that gives people an incentive to register, and she "argues it's critical to have an up-to-date registry of California's firearm owners so that law enforcement agencies can use it to remove guns from dangerous people. Under the state's "red flag" laws, Californians can petition a court to have police remove firearms from those threatening to harm themselves or others. The law was recently expanded to allow teachers, employers and coworkers to seek the temporary removal of firearms from the homes of people making threats."

In other words: the purpose of registration is to allow confiscation. Thanks for the candor

More on that volcano in NZ

by Firehand in Irons in the Fire at 16:47, Wednesday, 11 December

One of the best examples of this might be White Island in New Zealand. Off the northern coast of the North Island in the Bay of Plenty, White Island is an active volcano that is part of the volcanic arc that stretches from the Kermadec Islands to the north all the way to Ruapehu in the south. Most of the volcanic edifice sits underwater, but the main crater is above water, sitting out like a sentinel in the Bay. Boat tours of White Island occur daily from Whakatane, where tourists can go to the island and actually walk inside the main crater – which, in theory, is nothing more hazardous than taking a stroll through the Norris Geyser Basin at Yellowstone or Bumpass Hell at Lassen. However, unlike those locations, White Island has erupted recently – in fact, between 1998-2001, the volcano produced multiple VEI 2-3 eruptions and is one of the most active in New Zealand.

In the last three or four months, I have been making an effort to go out and shoot with strangers in public ranges either outside or the various indoor ranges in Michigan. It’s fairly easy to become comfortable shooting on private land with the same group of people. In an effort to break this trend, […]

I went out for a nice long walky this morning – the weather was perfect for it, no wind or rain, temp just cold enough to freeze the mud. No direct sun which isn’t so great for the batteries but at least you’re not overheating in your coat.

About that mess in New Jersey

by Firehand in Irons in the Fire at 08:06, Wednesday, 11 December

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said Wednesday morning that the gunmen targeted the market, with surveillance video showing them driving slowly through the city's streets before stopping outside, calmly exiting their van and immediately opening fire.

"We could see the van moving through Jersey City streets slowly," he said. "The perpetrators stopped in front of (the market), calmly opened the door with two long rifles - him and the other perpetrator - and began firing from the street into the facility."

Fulop stopped short of calling it an anti-Semitic attack, but officials now say the suspects were believed to be followers of the Black Israelites, a group that espouses hatred toward Jews. The group is also known for anti-government and anti-police sentiments.

New Jersey authorities are preliminarily investigating the incident as a case of domestic terrorism.
I'm curious as to why Mr. Mayor stopped s...

Acevedo says "we will continue to be vigilant in our processes and our systems and our audits," which implies that the Houston Police Department already was vigilant about potential abuses by narcotics officers. Yet the Chronicle found that the Narcotics Division had gone two decades without an audit. It also found that, despite an expert consensus that undercover officers should be frequently rotated to other assignments, 71 officers have served a decade or more in the Narcotics Division. Michael Doyle, a lawyer hired by Nicholas' family, says supervisors let the raid go forward even though they knew Goines had not properly documented his contact with the informant he described. Goines' belief that he could get away with inventing a drug purchase by a nonexistent informant does not speak well of the HPD's "processes."
He thought he could because he'd done it before.  God knows how many lives dama...

Quote of the day—Dean Weingarten

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 06:00, Wednesday, 11 December

Preventing a murder or suicide committed with a particular method is *not* a compelling governmental interest, because it is not clear if prohibiting one method will do anything to lower murders or suicides generally. It is arguable that prohibiting one method will lead to the rise of other methods. If preventing one method does not lower the overall rate, resources have been wasted and liberties narrowed to no effect. Thus, singling out one method becomes a matter of choice and preference.

Using the Orwellian phrases of Progressives is one of the easiest ways to lose an argument with them. If you cede to them the ability to define the words and terms of the language used, they win, mostly by default.

”Preventing Gun Violence” is not a Compelling Governmental Interest

I hang around with a few O-6s.  It's my age cohort.  Colonels and Captains.  Some of them Colonels are now Brigadiers.  Some of them infantry veterans.

It's an O-6 that commands Naval Air Schools Command at Pensacola Naval Air Station.

The O-6 I know, that would be in charge of maybe relaxing the rules?  "What do you think of allowing people on base to carry a sidearm around base in CONUS, Colonel?"

"Oh HELL no!"

They've SEEN men in the their 20's walking around with a weapon all the time.  And they don't trust them to do it unsupervised.  Now if they were with a 30 something senior NCO all the time?  They still wouldn't trust em to carry a weapon.

Are all O-6's of this kind of attitude?  I am sure not.  But a LOT of em are.  And with folks that are all for CCW and carry themselves.  They just would never allow it if their command required incident free days.  They don't trust them like that, and have seen the mischief they are capable of.&n...

Sanctuary Spaces

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 04:56, Wednesday, 11 December

The fist time that sanctuary spaces (city, county, etc) thrust itself into my consciousness, it was local folks rebelling against immigration law. (You know, like California did.) I thought then that it was silly, and sad, and a bit wrong-headed.  I still do.  The law is the law.  If you don't like the law, work to change it.

Moe recently, I see counties in Virginia declaring themselves 2A Sanctuaries in the wake of what seems to be a push to enact draconian gun laws in that state. I note that these laws have not yet been passed, and I hope that the political pressure that is being applied will be sufficient that they never see the light of day, but most pundits are declaring gloom-and-doom for gun rights in Virginia.  So, many locales are choosing sides.  Below is a map that is probably alreay out of date.

Defining “Democracy” and why the FedGov isn’t

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 05:00, Wednesday, 11 December

By Nathan Barton

Most libertarians and conservatives are aware that the Federal Government – the union of States – was established as a republic and not a democracy.  And of the distain (if that is a strong enough word) of the Founders for democracy.

What we apparently don’t really think about is that the Regressives, (Democrats and too many Republicans, Socialists, etc.) agree that the FedGov is NOT a democracy.  Despite their rhetoric to the contrary.

But their reasoning is totally different.

These “Progressives,” Tranzis, have no respect for the intent of the Framers or the Founding Fathers. And could care less about the Constitution, or their oath to uphold it. (Not that GOP leaders do, either – just in a different way.)

The Regressivist’ reasoning, however, is fairly simple. Look at the Merriam-Webster’s definition of democracy: “government by the people; especially rule of the majority.”

By this definition, the (un-)United States’ Federal Government is NOT a democracy.&nbsp...

XM-148: Colt’s Vietnam Grenade Launcher

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 05:27, Wednesday, 11 December

 

While the Special Purpose Infantry Weapon (SPIW) program failed to produce any successful rifles, it did become clear that the area-effect aspect of its requirements did have merit. This was spun off as its own program to develop a 40mm under barrel grenade launcher for the M16 rifle. Of the initial entrants, (Philco/Ford, AAI, and Colt), Colt’s CGL-4 was the most promising. It was moved quickly through development and 10,500 were ordered in January 1966 as the XM-148. Field reports quickly turned sour, though, and in May of 1967 the XM-148 was ordered out of combat use, to be replaced with the M79 grenade launcher. The idea was sound, but the execution needed improvement – which would come in the form of the M203 launcher instead.

Many thanks to Movie Armaments Group in Toronto for the opportunity to showcase this grenade launcher for...
