Seattle homelessness spending tops $90 million:

In 2015, the year former Mayor Ed Murray declared a state of emergency over homelessness, Seattle budgeted about $50 million to address the crisis. Four years later, Mayor Jenny Durkan’s recently released budget proposal calls for about $90 million in homelessness spending next year, and Seattle’s City Council is looking to add more.

homelessness-Three-years-WEB

It’s a extremely basic lesson of economics. If you subsidize something you will get more of it. By making it easier for people to live with little or no income more people are tempted to go that route and to move here from other places....


Congress cannot ban rubber bands (well they could but I do not think Staples would allow it), but they can ban semiautomatic rifles.  Banning bump stocks is certainly less burdensome to gun owners than banning semiauto rifles.  Time to stockpile hefty rubber bands!

The complaint is here.

And amazingly, YouTube has not taken it down.

Darn: Amazon does not seem to have woodland camo rubber bands.

The Trumpening

by SayUncle in SayUncle at 13:45, Tuesday, 18 December

So, Trump’s DOJ unilaterally and unlawfully banned bump stocks. This could be done by congress, I would think. But I don’t know that this will stand. In other news, if you have a bumpstock, you’ll be a felon in 90 days if you don’t turn it in or destroy it.

So, where’s my national reciprocity and hearing protection act I was promised?

Nunchucks

From rapes to arsons to guns, Florida’s school districts are hiding countless crimes that take place on campus, defying state laws and leaving parents with the false impression that children are safer than they are.

Many serious offenses — and even minor ones — are never reported to the state as required, an investigation by the South Florida Sun Sentinel found. A staggering number of schools report no incidents at all — no bullying, no trespassing, nothing.

Federal court declares New York ban on nunchucks unconstitutional

A federal court says New York’s ban on nunchucks, the martial arts weapon made famous by Bruce Lee but prohibited in the state for decades, is unconstitutional under the Second Amendment.

The more things which declared protected the easier it is to make the case than things just a little bit “up the ladder” are protected also.

It’s sad we have to start so low in some jurisdictions but it’s good we are getting decisions in our favor.

Bump-Stock-Type Devices now banned

by Carl Bussjaeger in The Zelman Partisans at 10:27, Tuesday, 18 December

Acting AG Whittaker signed the rule today.

I will be posting more, after I’ve read the entire 157 page document.

So far, the ban appears to rest on this:

The ruling determined that the phrase “single function of the trigger” in the statutory definition of”machinegun” was best interpreted to mean a “single pull of the trigger.”

They transferred the “definition” of machinegun from the device to the user.

It's rather typical of modern-day rulings in that it takes 32 pages to say this.....

Mountains rise up one side, and cliffs drop precipitously down the other, often hundreds of feet to the Parvati River below. The milky blue waters, named after a benevolent Hindu goddess of fertility and devotion, seem inviting but can be a powerful, violent force.

The Canadian gun-ban debate may prove instructive for Americans looking to avoid the consequences of hasty, emotion-driven gun legislation. Three lessons can be gleaned, with each highlighting the pitfalls of a distorted national conversation and the ineffective legislation it breeds.

Lesson 1: A failure to recognize past failures dictates calls for more restrictive legislation.

Lesson 2: Politicians prefer grand gestures over measured policies.

Lesson 3: Long term and secondary consequences are rarely considered.

A lot of us in law enforcement love to make fun of the FBI.

 

The Bureau is famous for hiring people who no aptitude for law enforcement who bumble round and screw up everything but are respected bureaucrats. If we’re honest, we can also cite FBI agents we’ve met who are very squared away and a credit to the profession. I think we’ve all wondered how one agency can be occupied by so many people at the extremes.

Florida cops get “Stand Your Ground,” too

by Carl Bussjaeger in The Zelman Partisans at 04:00, Tuesday, 18 December

The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that “Stand Your Ground” (SYG) self-defense protections extend to police officers, as well as civilians. I’m going to make two points about this.

1. DUH!

Police officers are persons, too. Of course they’re entitled to the same rights as any other person. That’s a no-brainer.

2. This police shooting was not a SYG situation.

SYG — despite common mischaracterizations in the anti-rights media — is not a “shoot first any time you panic” defense. All it does is two things.

The first: If you are in a situation in which you would otherwise be allowed to use defensive force, you don’t have to try to outrun the bad guy — or his speeding bullets — before defending yourself.

The second: By invoking SYG, the defender no longer has to prove his innocence. It becomes up to t...

Ammunition Evaluation: Ethiopian .30-06

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 05:27, Tuesday, 18 December

Century International Arms has imported a quantity of Ethiopian ammunition, and asked me to do a video on it. So, I have a three-part evaluation here: appearance and packaging, live fire testing (including velocity and consistency), and teardown and bullet weight consistency. This ammunition was produced (as best I can tell) at the Emperor Haile Selassie Ammunition Factory, established with Czech technical aid in the late 1940s in Addis Ababa. This ammunition is all headstamped 1977, made for a variety of American surplus rifles and machine guns acquired by Ethiopia including the M1 Garand, M1917 and M1919 machine guns, and M1918A2 BAR. I received this ammunition packaged in 15-round loose boxes as well as in M1 Garand en bloc clips and bandoliers.

Velocity:

I tested velocity using a .30-06 M1917 Enfield rifle (barrel length 26 inches). Measurements were taken at 10 feet from the muzzle, with a sample size of 15 rounds fired. I found an average...

Old Cast Iron

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 16:56, Monday, 17 December

I've been looking at cast iron cookware sites recently, ad a couple of nights ago decided to look at our personal collection, which is mainly a using collection of Lodge cookware. There is nothing wrong with Lodge cookware once you get past their current practice of pre-seasoning their cookware, which feels about like a truck bed liner.  Some of their earlier stuff is very slick indeed, and Belle had some pieces hanging int he rack which were crusty, from decades of cooking and baking.  With her permission, I decided to clean them using the oven cleaning method.

Using the oven cleaning method, you basically put the pieces into your oven and set it on the automatic cleaning cycle.  When it cools the cookware is clean, with all the crusty bits reduced to ash.  Wash it thoroughly and re-season it, ad it looks as good as new.  I did that, and sure enough, it worked fine.  I put them in the oven last night, and when I came home from work today, I washed them, and did one re-seasoning.

"Stupid Is as Stupid Does"

by Jerry The Geek in Cogito Ergo Geek at 15:35, Monday, 17 December

You may recall Forrest Gump saying that line.

But now New Jersey has decided to compound their institutional stupidity:

 Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik slammed New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy over a gun law that bans off-duty officers in the state from carrying magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition. Kerik tweeted a leaked memo to law enforcement signed by Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo, which said violating the law would result in a fourth-degree crime.
NJ cops are protesting this law, on the grounds that it puts them at a severe disadvantage when they encounter criminal actions during off-duty hours and are required (by their terms of service) to intercede when possible.

The cops are also uncomfortable because the laws reduces their ability to defend themselves as "private citizens".

Understanding Climate Data made easy

by Borepatch in Borepatch at 09:08, Monday, 17 December

As a full service climate skeptic blog, I chew on a lot of the science so I can present what's going on in an easy to digest manner.  This leads me into the actual temperature data sets pretty regularly which quite frankly is where the action is.  When you actually look at the data it becomes immediately clear that the science is anything but settled.  The planet may be warming, but if so there are some very unexpected things that remain unexplained.  To me, this is the biggest source of skepticism, and it's a skepticism that's entirely justified.

As a starting point, here's a good discussion about temperature measurements.  It's a bit thick going if you're not a science nerd like I am, but let me boil this down for you.  The weather stations that feed data into the climate databases.  For the USA - and actually most of the world, really - this is the Global Climate Historical Network, or GHCN.  You can get you a copy here.

Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo issued a memorandum to local police officials on Dec. 13 reminding everyone that the prohibition of the possession of large-capacity ammunition magazines also applied to off-duty law enforcement officers.

“The statute now provides that law enforcement officers are not permitted to possess large capacity ammunition magazines, i.e. magazines capable of holding more than ten (10) rounds of ammunition to be fed continuously into semi-automatic firearms, unless while on duty or traveling to or from an authorized place of duty,” the memo read.

“This statute applies to all law enforcement officers, including those subject to on-call status. Violation of this statute constitutes a fourth degree crime,” the memo continued.

This is a long video – 20 minutes or so. But it is pretty good. And it highlights a couple of important lessons.

So the county (or city) had a plan. Call people via robocalls to tell them to evacuate. They never anticipated evacuating the whole town. The system was overloaded. And then the phone lines started to burn. They never used the Emergency Alert System (radio and TV). They never used the Wireless Alert System (Cellphones). Both of those are run by FEMA, which says no alerts were passed onto them.

The lessons?

First, FEMA says have a radio to listen for instructions from your local authority. But if the local authorities aren’t going to communicate via radio, what the hell is the point? How many of the hand-crank-charged AM/FM/Weather band radios have been s...

Judges Behaving Badly

Your Tactical Training Scenario- Castle Doctrine

by Greg Ellifritz in Active Response Training at 04:00, Monday, 17 December

Written by: Greg Ellifritz

 

Let’s talk a little bit about “Castle Doctrine”. In this case, the homeowner shot an intruder who was unarmed and may not have been a true lethal force threat. Despite the shooting of an unarmed man, the homeowner will likely not be criminally charged. Here’s how it works….

 

In general, in order to shoot someone (regardless of location), you need to have a reasonable belief that your attacker is going to kill you or cause you very serious injury. Each state abides by these basic guidelines, but every state generally has a different term for “serious injury”. In Ohio, serious injury is called “serious physical harm”. Other states call it: grievous body injury, grievous bodily harm, or grave physical danger. All of them have separate legal definitions, but they mean pretty much the same thing. An injury that causes maiming, disfigurement, broken bones, or is likely to land you in the hospital wo...

Godzilla: The 2014 Edition

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 05:44, Monday, 17 December

I love a good monster movie, but the 1998 version of Godzilla was SO bad, I passed on the 2014 version. It was a mistake. Turns out it’s a pretty good monster movie. And a VERY good Godzilla movie. Aside from the original Japanese Gojira from 1954 – which if you can find a version (NOT the Raymond Burr, American Movie Industry monstrosity) is worth a look – this might be the best Godzilla movie ever. Most of the 1950s/1960s Godzilla franchise were just awful. (Though there was some humor in the series. More on that below.)

It appears that this interview of Strzok took place on July 19, notes of the interview were drafted the next day (July 20), and the 302 was approved and entered into the FBI’s files on August 22. The question obviously arises: Where is the Flynn 302? FBI procedures would have called for a report within a few days of the interview. It is not that there wasn’t one for seven months. For now, it looks like none has been produced at all.
Gee, the EffingBI- again- not even following its own damned procedures.

An Abby Normal Christmas Letter

Abby Normal the Lab here.  I know Mom doesn't blog about me like she did about Barkley but I am a big part of her and Partner in Grime's life since they adopted me from a high kill shelter 4 years ago. I was old and sick and had borne tons of puppies, and when I couldn't make money for my previous peeps they just got rid of me. After a 12-hour round trip car ride I had a new home and it's the best place EVER (BACON!!!!! Poofy Bed!!!!! Sleeping inside where it's warm!!!!!)

The outdoor lifestyle reality series – “Eva Shockey’s Outdoor 101” – is slated to launch on Monday, December 17, 2018 on Facebook Watch at 9 p.m. PT. The six-episode series chronicles the adventures of acclaimed outdoor enthusiast, conservationist and author Eva Shockey and her family as they traverse her adopted home state of North Carolina.

 

“I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results of our work with Facebook Watch. When we set out to develop the digital series, the aim was to create content that spoke to a community of outdoor adventure seekers and build an ongoing social dialogue about the world outside,” said Shockey. “Through ‘Eva Shockey’s Outdoor 101,’ my first foray into lead hosting duties, I want to mobilize and motivate my millennial peers to enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer. And I want to showcase how much fun it can be to raise a future nature-lover in the process!”

The KSTP “Bump Stock” Memo Finally Appears

by Carl Bussjaeger in The Zelman Partisans at 16:26, Sunday, 16 December

About that mysterious memo obtained by KSTP, which was being sent to law enforcement and FFLs… except no FFL had seen it, and which I’ve been trying to get from them since December 4th: I finally got a definite reply from KSTP’s Beth McDonough, who broke the story.

The memo at last. Um…

Well, at least one page of it.

McDonough said that she only had one page.

Boy, I was feeling rich when I went to town yesterday. By the time I was done replacing the (nearly new) rear shocks and a coolant hose on the Jeep, not so much. But the rules of synchronicity have always been that I don’t always get what I want but what I need usually comes around if I keep my eyes open. In this case, a cash windfall arrived a few hours before I learned I needed to spend more money on the Jeep. So I’m not bitching. The busted shock is fixed (I’ll get to the other one probably tomorrow if the weather holds) and a leaking coolant hose is replaced.

The Tree Is Up

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 13:00, Sunday, 16 December

Belle ad I decided to put the tree up in the barn this Christmas, since that's where the festivities will commence.  She had the grandsons get it out of the attic today, and superintended the installation.



That tree took up half the living room.  It looks a whole lot smaller in the shop.  But, after Christmas, it will go into storage in the shop.  It's never going back in the house.

I shot film pretty consistently all through 2015 and then it sorta ground to a halt.

I don't develop film at home because there's not really any way to do so here at Roseholme Cottage. It's a tiny frame structure completely devoid of windowless interior rooms, and even the basement has glass brick windows along the long walls. I could use a dark bag and tanks, but that's a pain.

Anyway, what happened was that as that year drew to a close, I'd built up a backlog of around a dozen rolls of exposed film, plus a couple test rolls loaded in cameras, and I was like "That's it. No more film shooting until I reduce this backlog."

To send them in to The Darkroom, I need to pull out my little portable printer (which I'd bought for more or less this purpose), print out my order form, stick it in the little film mailer along with up to four rolls of film (the most that fit in one mailer) and send it off.

So discovering that Robert's could do it on-site was a revelation.

Without thinking, I dropped the stuff off and, as though I were back at one of the photolabs where I worked when Bush the Elder was still POTUS, breezily answered "...

Mind you, she does a good job of making some pretty esoteric science understandable to the layperson, but some might be intimidated by the very concepts. (One might be tempted to turn on closed captioning, due to her accent. It might help, but I think they used a speech-to-text app, and it gets thrown off by homophones which aren't valid, due to... her accent.)

Everything I was told to fear about being openly gay has become a reality in being openly conservative. The fear of being fired, harassed, called dehumanizing names, bullied, and denied access to public life (even violence) are all realities I face today as a conservative.

By the very nature of the left’s views on what constitutes “hate,” I am incapable of freely expressing myself on any public forum without very careful editing and presentation. I never truly experienced hate until I came out as a conservative.

Figured I better rattle this thing to see if it still works. It's been an interesting couple of months, but not necessarily interesting in a blogging manner.

Once fall arrives, many of our weekends are taken up by college football. Those events do lead to some opportunities to enjoy a good drink and cigar, as mentioned here. Although the games and tailgating events are fun, they do conflict with shooting events. To my chagrin, it's been over two months since I was able to shoot a match. Even more regrettable, even a quick trip to the range is a nearly month old memory at this point.

I've had a few work-related trips of late as well. Those do take time away from the more pleasurable activities. On the bright side, those trips also offer opportunities to enjoy interesting food...

Twenty years ago our founder, Kim Reynolds, identified a huge difference in the numbers of women climbers vs men and their roles in climbing.  Particularly in ice climbing, she noted, “ As I watched the sport of climbing grow, I saw few women taking the lead in this seemingly intimidating activity.  I saw an opportunity for women to learn from other women and gain the confidence needed to become proficient, self-reliant climbers and climbing partners”.

The Man Who Saved Christmas (Music)

by Borepatch in Borepatch at 10:20, Sunday, 16 December

OK, Christmas music didn't really need saving (other than when the Puritans ruled England and its American colonies in the mid 1600s and banned Christmas).  But William Sandys put together the first modern collection of Christmas Carols in his 1833 book, Christmas Carols Ancient and Modern.  Published just as the Victorian period was getting under way (the Victorians were famously sentimental about Christmas, among other things popularizing the idea of the Christmas Tree), Sandy's book made famous the core of what we recognize as Christmas Carols: God Rest You Merry Gentlemen, The First Noel, I Saw Three Ships, and Hark the Herald Angels Sing.

Here is a little playlist of Sandys' collection.  Yeah, he didn't really "save" Christmas music, but he sure wrote it all down.

The Human Remains of Skeleton Lake – Visible Only when the Ice Melts.

From Quora, a pretty interesting story.

In 1942, H K. Madhawl, a British forest guard in Roopkund, India made an alarming discovery (despite the fact that there had been reports of bones on the lake shore since the mid 19th century). At an elevation of 15,750 feet, near the bottom of a small valley, was a frozen lake absolutely full of skeletons. Roopkund Lake, in the state of Uttarakhand, India, was a six-foot-deep glacial lake that typically remained frozen year round.

What he saw up there confused everyone. At first, i...

If you make money available to .gov bureaucrats, they will spend it, for fear you will take it away in the future. Report rips expensive decisions in California wildfire fight.

California wildfires have been on my mind since I ran across some videos that offered more information about the Camp Fire than I was getting from the media. (See my post on that at this link.)

This report covers a review of fire suppression efforts for a fire in Big Sur two years ago, known as the Soberanes Fire.

In the first week, the blaze destroyed 57 homes and killed a bulldozer operator, then moved into remote wilderness in the Los Padres National Forest. Yet for nearly three more months the attack barely let up.

The Soberanes Fire burned its way into the record books, costing $262 million as the most expensive wildland firefight in U.S. history in what a new report calls an “extreme example of excessive, unaccountable, budget-bustin...

But this video is troubling:



This video says 300 rounds in two minutes as a series of bursts. If this was being done with a belt fed, why stop firing?  He would not have exhausted his belt.  Most of these sound like 5.56mm, not 7.62 NATO.  The later bursts are very inconsistent--not what I would expect of a beltfed weapon, but a bump stock used by someone now tired.

This video provides an explanation of how they work.  How you would distinguish this from a belt fed by sound eludes me.

who has a meme that's basically "Guns are for weak people, you're wrong if you think otherwise."  Which is stupid on its face for a variety of reasons, but Burkhead has his own response for a lot of people:
Yes, guns are tools for the weak.  They are what give the weak a fighting stance against aggressors who are stronger than them.  If you really think that worshiping the strong over the weak is a good thing, I have only one thing to say to you:

Crack open a history book.

If, however, you think that justice demands that the weak, faced with a violent encounter, to return safely to their loved ones then you can’t ask for a better option than to allow them to be armed, to be armed with weapons that do not rely on strength or lifelong dedication in developing skill.

Terrorists kill Israelis? No mention of terror. Israelis kill terrorists? No mention of terror. Just poor Palestinians. Guardian headline omitting ‘terrorists’ sparks outrage in Israel.

Website of Britain’s left-wing Guardian paper says “Israelis and Palestinians killed in West Bank violence” without stating that the Palestinians were terrorist gunmen who deliberately targeted Israelis • Israel is fighting back against biased coverage.

But then the Guardian isn’t known for its balanced, unbiased coverage.

Meanwhile, In the Socialist Paradise of Venezuela

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 05:44, Sunday, 16 December

This also highlights what a REAL group of refugees looks like. U.N. estimates two million more Venezuelans will flee their homeland in 2019.

First the why. Why are so many people (as much as 17 percent of the pre-collapse population) leaving the country?

Eduardo Stein, the joint UNHCR-IOM special representative for Venezuelan refugees and migrants, said Venezuelans are fleeing their home due to hunger, insecurity and lack of access to basic medical care.

And what does a group of refugees look like?

“They are families, women alone, children, young boys and girls, all in conditions of extreme vulnerability,” he said in a statement. “All of them saw no other option than to leave their country — sometimes walking for days — seeking to live in dignity and build a future.”

Not like the “migrant caravan” or the “refugees” who literally invaded Europe over the past few years – both groups where mostly, predominantly male.

“Greater reliance on autonomous systems and unmanned platforms makes a great deal of sense, given the small size of our military,” says Malcolm Davis, a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.

Frank Iannamico’s new book on the Smith & Wesson Model 76 submachine gun is in fact a book about much more than just the Model 76. It begins with several sections on earlier S&W 9mm carbines, like the 1940 “Light Rifle” and 1945 SMG. These sections taken alone are the most informative material on these guns published anywhere, to the best of my knowledge. The book then continues to discuss the history, development, and variations of the Swedish M45/B submachine gun, aka the Swedish K (including the Egyptian licensed copy, the Port Said).

Ah HA!

Simple renewal.  $25 for non resident.  If you do it online it;s $25.75.  I have to send them a picture of my home state's CCW permit IF my home state honors the Utah permit.  Maryland does not.  

Heh.  Maryland could start to honor Utah resident permits...  That would really be a wooden shoe in the millworks for folks like me.

Today, I received an invoice from FedEx for $258.61 for a shipment because my Discover Card declined the charge.  The invoice is made out to Clayton Cramer LLC.  I have no LLC. 

The shipper is listed as Antonio Ruperto, 1100 Charlotte Ave., San Jose, CA 95124. 

This 15 pound package was Overnighted to Kazeem Omotayo, 12011 Westbrae Pkwy, Houston, TX 77031.  That name....Nigerian prince, perhaps? 

Lifelock says that I should make a police report to the Houston Police.  San Jose Police would make more sense to me.  So my question: Will San Jose Police Department consider credit card fraud worth their while or will higher priority crimes (like thinking badly of the transgendered) take precdence?

Bill of Rights day!

December 15!

I was in DC during the Bicentennial of the Constitution (1987-89) and during what should have been the bicentennial of the Bill of Rights (1991). The first got big play, a commission headed by Chief Justice Burger, celebrations, etc.. The second was virtually ignored. My guess at the reason was that DC is of course a company town, the company is the federal government, and the Constitution is what gave that company power. The Bill of Rights ... well, it was nice but not really that important.
