8 Stubborn Facts

Via Ace:

Here are eight stubborn facts to keep in mind about gun violence in America:
  1. Violent crime is down and has been on the decline for decades.
  2. The principal public safety concerns with respect to guns are suicides and illegally owned handguns, not mass shootings.
  3. A small number of factors significantly increase the likelihood that a person will be a victim of a gun-related homicide.
  4. Gun-related murders are carried out by a predictable pool of people.
  5. Higher rates of gun ownership are not associated with higher rates of violent crime.
  6. There is no clear relationship between strict gun control legislation and homicide or violent crime rates.
  7. Legally owned firearms are used for lawful purposes much more often than they are used to commit crimes or suicide.
  8. Concealed carry permit holders are not the problem, but they may be part of the solution.
Each of these facts is firmly based on empirical data. Here’s a deeper look.

Nothing we gunnies didn't already know.

More Authentic?

When making the zombie green baseplates, I ended up with left-over black bases.

Since real bakelite mags have a black base, does putting a black base on my bakelite dyed AK PMAG's make them more authentic?

It's a pure aesthetics question.  Does it look better with a black base?

Looks Like We're Awake Now

The Constitutional Review Commission has tabled the anti-gun suggestions:

I'd like to think it's because you can bake cookies in the room holding their email server, but that's just me.

Email 2 To The CRC

You may notice that there was a shooting in a high school in Maryland.
The location is significant because Maryland has all of the gun control mentioned in these proposed amendments.
You might notice that gun control failed to prevent the shooter from starting his attack.
You might notice that it was an active response from a Student Resource Officer firing back that ended the attack.
It was not banning a common type of gun.
It was not forbidding the ownership of certain sized magazines.
It was not the gun-free zone of the school.
It was not universal background checks.
It was not gun registration.
It was a good guy with a gun returning fire.
Shall we focus on what works and abandon what doesn't?

Making Our Point

School Shooting In Maryland.

Bad guy with gun is stopped, literally, dead by good guy with a gun firing back.

So far the only fatality is the scumbag bad guy.

Maryland is a gun-free victim zone in public schools.

Maryland also has a checklist of things that are on the gun-control wish list.

They have an assault weapon ban.

They have a, sort of, ban on magazines larger than 10 rounds.

They have, for handguns, permits to purchase, registration and universal background checks.

Never mind the fact that the shooter was 17.  Underage to buy any kind of gun from a dealer.

The only thing that worked is what we pro-gun people have been saying works.

Maybe it's time to stop listening to the gun grabbers?

No.  It's past time to stop listening to them.

Good News Everyone

It's good that the age to buy a gun was raised to 21 and the waiting period extended to all firearms sales.

Otherwise someone might have gotten shot.

It's not the guns.

It was never the guns.

It's not even about murders.

Back Up Fail

Is anyone else having trouble backing up their Blogger?

Mine gets to 25-28mb on the xml file and says, "Failed.  Network Error".

This is on all my machines and with all browsers.

Back In Your Closets Faggots!

Can't have the faggots spread their deviance to the unsullied, can we?

Gods forbid that anyone new be brought into the gun community!

Wanna bet blogs be next to be chopped?

Further Adventures In 922r Compliance

The East German Magazines are now safe to use in my Tantal.

The body, follower and floorplate make this magazine too dangerous to use in my rifle if all three are present at the same time.  But replace any one of them is replaced with one made in the USA, suddenly the entire firearm is safe to use.

And it's such a gigantic change...

There's no reason, it's just the law.

The floorplate is also the part least likely to ruin the natural function of a reliable design.

Is This How It Felt?

Watching the huge anti-gun rallies.

Listening to anti-gun people wishing me dead.

Reading about what I should do to conform to the new laws.

Is this how it felt to be Jewish as the National Socialists took power?

For some reason I am struck with a scene from the German miniseries, "Generation War".

One of the POV characters is Jewish and his father is a tailor, busily sewing a yellow star on his clothes, saying something to the effect that he's showing that they are Good Germans, everyone will see how good they are because Good Germans obey the law.  This will make everything all better!

I read a few pro-gun sites that remind me strongly of that father.

It's very worrisome.

Body Count

How many children have to die before you listen to the people who actually own guns and know what they can do?

How many children have to die before you listen to the people who actually study how to defend themselves from armed attacks?

How many children have to die before you listen to the people who are experts in this field?

How many children have to die before you blame the people actually responsible rather than a deodand or a scapegoat?

Just For The Record

If you're going to invite me to be on your blogroll as a "contributing source" or are requesting I put you in my sidebar blogroll...

At least make your fucking reply topical to the post you're replying to!

I don't generally post about whom the president hires and fires, so asking to be linked in a post where I'm talking about a speculative alternate history's adoption of a particular scope mount and linking to a post about McCabe being fired is just ign'ant!

If you're on the sidebar it's because I enjoy reading you.  When I stop enjoying it, you go away.

It's that simple.

Yes, I have tiers of enjoyment, but that's either because I don't like that you make me think or that you keep posting bullshit, but have the occasional diamond worth reading.

Go with the answer that makes you feel best.  Trust me.

But you're there because I want you there, not because you offered me more traffic.  Not because you want more traffic.

This blog gets 600-1,000 hits.  I'm betting 3/4 of that is bots.

That's what you're wanting to link yourself to.

I ain't no Tam with a rabid following or an Erin with a carefully nurtured and realized presence.

It's just me and my stream of consciousnesses.

I'm not even a Caleb leveraging an attempt to be the biggest douche into actually BEING the biggest douche!

HR 5103


This does two huge things to the NFA enthusiast.

First it cranks up the $200 taxes to $500 and the $5 taxes to $100.

Second it increases the tax annually by tying it to the COLA.


It increases taxes on importers and manufacturers and ties increases to COLA.

Then it makes a pistol based on a rifle that still uses rifle ammo an NFA item.

It doesn't have many cosponsors, but that could change quickly.

Since it's NFA stuff, there's no national organization with our backs.

Start haranguing your Congress Creatures!

Hat tip to The Firearm Blog, who also give a shining example of how to correctly give an alert like this.  As opposed to some parties I've mentioned earlier this week.

Picatinny And The Cold War

In the prime timeline, our timeline, Poland adopted a Picatinny rail as part of the Karabinek wzór 1996.

Rail sections are common on Russian guns now.

The question for our alternate history T2K timeline:

Would the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact adopt P-rails if the Cold War had continued until the mid to late 1990's?

Operative Phrase

Even if you're a useful idiot; you're still an idiot.

Welcome back Blue!

War On The Impoverished

Florida's new gun owner restraining order is a war on the impoverished.

Let's say you are subjected to such an order.

The accuser isn't on the hook for the administrative costs or fees.  Want to bet that there's transportation and storage fees for your guns while your mental health to own them is evaluated?

Never mind the 3-5 thousand bucks that a Baker Act three day stay will run you.  Hope you weren't using Obamacare for your health insurance!

It infuriates me that we've created a system for some anonymous neighbor to harass a gunowner out of being a gun owner from constantly paying medical bills and admin fees.  Let alone the likely loss of employment from taking time off to be evaluated by doctors and attend hearings.

Sure, they have language that makes it a crime to knowingly make a false statement but, as been noted before, that case law as pretty much nullified the language they inserted into the law.

That means your anti-gun neighbor can break you with impunity.

The goal of this appears to be to drive us into the closet and at least hide our ownership if we won't be ashamed of it.

We are the new faggots of society.

Are They Public Records?

Is there a way for us to obtain the count of calls, letters and emails to our congress creatures?

I am wondering, after seeing this, if the response was even remotely balanced.

We gun owners tend to be pretty responsive to a call to hit up senators and representatives.

What was the ratio of "stop this stupid shit" to "we love this stupid shit!"

They repeated, over and over that they'd gotten thousands of messages supporting both sides.

Was it 3 thousand thousands versus 100 thousand thousands?

Again With The Reading

The problem with Fix-NICS isn't the bill to fix NICS.

Many of the issues that are being cited as being part of fix-NICS are actually problems with having a NICS at all.

When you start digging, it's complaining about people being denied their rights already, under the current laws.

Forcing the subsidiary governments of the US to report more accurately their lists of prohibited people doesn't change the underlying law that's unjustly denying the rights to people already.

But for some reason the critics of fix-NICS aren't even trying to get that part fixed while another part, that's undeniably broken, is.

Dismissive Tone

There's an old joke:

How many psychologists does it take to change a light bulb?

Just one, but the light bulb has to really want to change!


That one of the biggest concerns is veterans with PTSD.

How best to say it but, "bitches please."

In the first place not every veteran gets post traumatic stress disorder.  Even vets who went to combat and saw some serious shit.

There's a percentage that never feel a moments remorse, regret or guilt let alone get traumatized by what they've seen.  The law of small numbers says that, although it's a small percentage, there's lot of veterans who just aren't affected by the experience negatively.

The percentage of people who get PTSD is larger, but still not the majority of veterans.  There's a ton of variables with it.  Some people are predisposed to be extra traumatized, some people would be fine but repeated exposure wears them down.

The good news is it's a well known and well understood condition which is fairly straight forward to treat and cure.


As with all psychological trauma, the patient is key.  They have to want to get better.

Psychology isn't like normal medicine in this regard.  A broken leg will tend to heal whether the sufferer wills it or not.  Cuts and bruises too.

But just like how you can keep moving the break to prevent the bones from fusing, keep cutting the same place or beating the same lump... a mental patient can keep themselves from getting well.

Good news, again, is this is well understood with regards to PTSD and there's methods to subvert a reluctant patients efforts to avoid getting well.

The patient who manages to successfully evade effective treatment is a vanishingly small number even with the percentage multiplied by a huge number of candidates.  It also tends to accompany issues that were only brought to the fore by the trauma; which aren't so readily understood and treated as the triggering PTSD.

I think that the real worry from the gun control crowd about combat vets isn't that they're ticking time bombs waiting to go off at any moment.  They're land mines.  Carelessly stepping on them is what causes the explosion; they don't just "go off".

Illegal Search And Seizure

I've harped on this before, but let's go again.

People who want to ban guns are full of arguments, and since there's so much case law defending the 1st Amendment, it's difficult to make comparisons with the 2nd Amendment because there's a dearth of case law. Though all but one Supreme Court ruling on the 2nd is decisively "standard model".

Let's talk about another oft abused amendment that's also part of the Bill of Rights.

The fourth.

Let's apply some reasonable and common sense restriction to 4th Amendment rights, which would make law enforcement's job easier, and see if you would like to live under such limits.

You cannot be secure in your person, house, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures until you are 21.

You must wait 5 days before preventing a law enforcement officer from performing a warrantless search of your home and seizure of your papers and effects; unless you've obtained a home privacy permit or passed a homeowner's safety class.

That sure would make it easier for the cops to bust people, wouldn't it?

Why don't you back that?

I'd also like to point out that the little ex parte protective orders portion of Florida's new law is a blatant 4th Amendment violation. A judge so orders isn't due process.

Cultural Appropriation

Sa lá atá inniu chaithim oráiste.
Caithim oráiste orm mar níl mé Gaeilge. Is Scots / Béarla mé.
Ó, Paddy? Glac an fálta agus cuir na píopaí amach.

Numbered And Marked

Since I have embraced the evils of long chain polymers...

And Rit Dye...

I've numbered my PMAGs.  And many of them are quite colorful.

Got in my sand baseplates and dyed them a nice Zombie Green and marked in the numbers with a paint marker.

To fill no need at all, I bought a windowed sand PMAG.

And dyed it foliage green.

While I think the windowed magazines are kinda neat I'm sort of at a loss for what use they really are.  I've heard lots of explanations that kind of make sense, but I'm not convinced of the utility.

But neat is enough for any gun purchase!

This actually isn't my first dyed window PMAG.  I have two more, in purple.  Even Harvey has one in flat dark earth.

All of my PMAGs are the Gen 3 types, Harvey's are Gen 2 MOE.

Marv's been an enthusiastic user of the windowed types since they first came out.  He even went so far as to convert a metal AR magazine to have a window, it works fine!

No Erich It Isn't

Here's the text of S. 2135.

It's neither pro-gun or anti-gun.

It doesn't create any new categories of prohibited people.

It would, however, have stopped at least two of the shootings that got us that shit pile from Tallahassee recently.

If you're getting your information from Gun Owners of America, you are being misinformed (best case) or lied to (worst case).  View with a weather eye anyone saying GOA is superior to the NRA in protecting our rights.

It's not a long complicated bill at all.

It didn't take long to find the text or to read it.

Can You Tell Me What's Wrong With This

If I were running the company that owns this site, I'd have my online marketing guy feeling very uncomfortable in my office.

I Remember Why I Stopped Reading Now

Because of the advice on how to run my local politics that doesn't work around here.

If the recent passage of The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act was a one off; that would be excellent advice.

The problem with the tactics as laid out in the link above is that we have been doing that!

What started us doing what is suggested was the utter inability to get any movement on carry rights while even IOWA made advances.

We managed to change a few names, but it appears that the indoctrination into The Party makes them forget who brought them to the dance.

What now? indeed.

What we need to do is bleed them.  Do the primary challenge that nukes their chances and might hand it to the other side.  To show them that we're willing to take the risk of a Dem getting the seat because we can't count on the Republicans any more.

They have to either fear us or owe us.  I prefer fear because they're a bunch of ingrates.

This Is Exactly What I Was Talking About

These two discuss what's in the recently passed (14Mar18) HR4909.

I dare you to find any part of this bill that does what they think it does.

Text of HR 4909.

Are they merely ignorant or is this deliberate misinformation?

But they've proven they're not doing any due diligence on pending legislation, so I suggest not using them for information.

'Nam Pile

Playing with my camera on this fine March day.

Openly Concealed

I am wondering about the fine points of legality.

Many European holsters completely encase the pistol so that no part of the firearm is visible.

Is that concealed?

In Florida you can print to your heart's content... as long as the gun itself has a layer of something between it and eyeballs.

It's almost tempting to get one of those holsters and wear it around empty and see if any attention is paid at all in a state where open carry is illegal.

I think I will file this under "don't draw attention to yourself."

It's The Same Thing

I've read a couple of people who're celebrating the lock to Daylight Savings Time.

They love how there's more daylight after work/school.

Do you know what would have the exact same effect?  Going to work an hour earlier in Standard Time.

Demand that from your boss!

I'm willing to bet that nobody will, because that's getting up an hour earlier!

It's a mind game, actually.

Getting up at 6 in Standard Time is exactly the same as "sleeping in" to 7 in Daylight Savings Time; but people think they're getting an hour more sleep...

It's because they're letting a clock determine their life, really.

14 March 2018

Indeed Let's!

Treat guns like cars!

Anyone can buy any kind of car they want, provided they have the money for it.

Anyone can buy a car in any state.

Anyone can import any kind of car from overseas as long as it's not used on public roads.

Cars are only subject to the myriad of regulations if you use them on public roads.

You only need to register and insure them if you use them on public roads.

The minimum age to get a license to operate a car on a public road is very young (14? 16?), with supervision of a licensed adult.

Your Card Has Been Declined

You cannot seriously explain bad reviews of your movie are due to racism in the same week that Black Panther breaks a billion dollars in receipts.

People pay to see a good movie and will tell others to see it.  They often go to see it twice (or more).

People pay to see a bad movie and will tell others to avoid it.  They very rarely sit through it again.

Phew! That's A Relief

It's a good thing that Florida raised the age to buy a gun from 18 to 21.

Otherwise someone could have gotten shot!

Except he's 17...

Aaaaaaaaaand it's Islam.


Time Shift

With Florida poised to enter Atlantic Standard Time come November, I wonder how many businesses are going to keep on with the time change.

The reason I wonder is businesses on Central time do most everything at the same time as Eastern.

Central time goes to work at 8, where Eastern goes at 9.

The news is on at 10 in central where it's on at 11 in Eastern.

But due to the time zone, they're happening at the same time.

For touristy stuff, local time will suffice, but I wonder about places that are part of an out of state network.

Staying on Eastern and observing the daylight savings time changes makes sense and adds less complication.


The other thing I would note is that if even half the pressure put on Marty Daniel and Daniel Defense was put on wavering politicians there would be no debating Fix NICS, a new AWB, or age restrictions. The fight would be over and we would have won.

From this post.

Today A Library Burns

Stephen Hawking has died.


Either I just don't learn or I have too much hope.

One should not watch TV shows that one loved as a child.

Nine times out of ten your adult mind will rebel against the simplistic plots, acting, sets and special effects where your childlike expectations were MUCH lower.

Childhood nostalgia is something to be cherished, not something to be impaled on adult reality.

I'm presently hurting myself with Space Academy.

Doing these steps out of order can land you in jail.  Real jail.  Federal Pound You In The Ass Prison type jail.  Felony shit.

Good For The Gander

I have a counter proposal to this.

YouTube Reform changes we need in my opinion.

1. Be at least 21 to buy a camera.

2. Go through a 6 month minimum course (similar to a drivers license course).

3. Professional Mental Heath evaluation.

4. Ban computer and electronics shows now!

5. 30 day wait period after purchase to receive camera.

6. 3 day waiting period before filming an event.

7. 15 day waiting period before posting a video to the internet.

I assume I will have their wholehearted support.

Florida Statute 790.222

Bump-fire stocks prohibited.

A person may not import into this state or transfer, distribute, sell, keep for sale, offer for sale, possess, or give to another person a bump-fire stock.

A person who violates this section commits a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084. As used in this section, the term “bump fire stock” means a conversion kit, a tool, an accessory, or a device used to alter the rate of fire of a firearm to mimic automatic weapon fire or which is used to increase the rate of fire to a faster rate than is possible for a person to fire such semiautomatic firearm unassisted by a kit, a tool, an accessory, or a device.

This "clearly" worded portion of the Florida Statutes is what makes it illegal to have a bump-stock here in Florida.

There's been a lot of freaking out over "a conversion kit, a tool, an accessory, or a device" portion of this law.

I think if we can get it to court we can prove that's Constitutionally vague.

I also don't think we're going to see much, if any, prosecution for something that isn't a bonafide Slide-Fire® or their competitors.

We might get some prosecution from someone getting giddy with it and doing traditional bumpfire and somebody in the DA's office noticing the Geissle trigger group.

But without someone doing pretend auto-fire there's nothing to attract the cops.

I know that at my trial, if any, I'm calling Jerry Miculek to the stand and have him show that I was firing far below what an unassisted, unaltered semi-auto could do.

Putin Proposes To Eliminate Nearly All Of My Readers

Who'll read this blog then?


Tonya the Tantal has evokes familiar feelings.

I am most reminded of my very first rifle.

A Mini-14.  A 181 series, if I recall correctly.

I chose it because it had a Choate combination flash-hider/front-sight/bayonet lug already mounted and a pistol-gripped folding stock.  Not the same stock as Skeezer and FuzzyGeff got from Choate.

The Tantal has the same basic feel to it.

Similar weights too, my Mini was tubby.

I'm a bit amused because my goal with the Mini was to get as close to my dream girl as I could; a Galil.

Galil's then, as now, were ridiculously expensive.

Well I've finally gotten a Galil equivalent here.  .22ish caliber, bipod, folding stock, based on an AK...

Odd that I kept circling this drain and finding the Galilesque.

Dear Gun Rights Advocates

It's a shame that it's come to this:

When you go off on a tear about what a law is going to do, would you be so kind as to quote the section of the bill?

Otherwise you sound like a loon when someone actually reads the damn thing and finds no passage pertaining to the thing you're panicking about.

My favorite by far has been how parking tickets will be making you a prohibited person if fix-NICS is passed.

Dearie, if you've unpaid parking tickets you're already a prohibited person.  Fix-NICS just means you're going to be caught now.

It didn't create a new class of prohibited people, it just created an incentive for State A to mention the bench warrant for unpaid tickets so that State B knows and won't sell a gun to this fugitive.

It's been repeated over and over now by more than one source that Fix-NICS is gun registration.

How?  Show me the text of the bill that causes this or shut the fuck up about it.


If it's there, I want to see it so I can complain to my congress creatures.  If it's not there, I don't want to look like a moron complaining about something that isn't so!

Sadly I think a lot of this falls under a failure to do ones own research.  Taking Gun Owners of America's fund-raising emails (for example) at face value has proven, to me, to be a bad plan.

Screaming that a bill contains something that it doesn't means that I can't trust your opinion, don't it?

12 March 2018

Not Period Correct

Not my rifle.  That's an RS Regulate AK-311M lower mount, AKML upper mount and a Primary Arms Micro Dot.  Not cheap at $361 total, but very usable!

I'd prefer something with some magnification so the AK-310M with more rail space, AKOG and a Primary Arms 3x ACSS scope for a whopping $453!  Cheaper than a real ACOG, I guess.  For $30 more I could step up to 5x.

Modern optics are not cheap.

Period for the gun is a 1P29, this is a 4x scope that's already calibrated for 5.45 and is $550 from Kalinka and $450 to $500 on ebay.

The ride height is better on the modern.  The looks are more appropriate for the 1P29.

I Give You The Player Character

The average PC with a light weapon loadout.

Almost Paranoia

I find I stop myself from saying, "Do you realize how stupid it sounds to say, 'You can own this, but you cannot buy this?'" with regards to guns under Florida's new gun control student safety law.

The reason I stop myself is the fear that the response will be, "Holy shit!  You're right!  They shouldn't be allowed to own this either!"

I am waiting for the first parent of an 18 year old who gives their offspring a gun being charged with making a straw purchase.

11 March 2018

I Looked It Up

The only amendment in the Bill of Rights more neglected by the US Supreme Court than the 2nd is the 3rd.

If it were neglected for the same reasons I would rest much easier at night.

I Want It Back

If it sticks, come November, Florida will not "fall back".

That means the hour that the government stole last night will be gone forever.


Just The One?

It suddenly occurred to me that I only own one rifle which would have been banned by an AWB that came that way from the factory.


All of the AR's start life as bare receivers.  One wasn't even a firearm when I started.

Both the AK's weren't complete rifles on delivery.

I'm just into DIY, I guess.

Looking back, my current FAL is the only one I've ever bought complete.

The Mini got transmogrified.

The Daewoo got a thumbhole delete.

The L1A1 was a bare receiver.

The Polytech M14S got its flash-hider fixed.


Tinker states the rights guaranteed to us by The Bill of Rights apply to people as young as 8 and onto government owned school property.

It also states that such rights cannot be disruptive to the education process.

Because the 1st Amendment is fully incorporated by the 14th Amendment, this applies to state, county and municipal governments as well as the Federal.

Well, legal eagles, time to sharpen your pencils and stock up on legal pads.

Since the age limits appear to be low and apply to schools, then it should be simple to use their own ruling to show that someone conceal carrying is non-disruptive to the education process and since the rights apply to youngins that someone who's 21+ with that CCW is provably old enough.

We have precedent!

We need to keep repeating that unpopular rights are the most important and needing of protection.

We need to keep demanding that the 14th incorporate the 2nd as it has incorporated all of the other amendments of The Bill of Rights.

Isn't This Interesting

Young Joeseph Gobbels has started wearing an armband inspired by Tinker v Des Moines Independent Community School District?

What part of Tinker is he supporting?

The part that says the Bill of Rights applies even to people as young as 8?

The part that says the Bill of Rights extends onto school grounds?

The part that says that while a 13 year old has 1st Amendment rights on school grounds, that speech has limits in that it can't disrupt the education process?

Or is he trying to say that his right to free speech has been in some way restricted while being plastered on every media outlet there is?

Or is he protesting something else and daring someone to demand he remove the armband?

You can't tell with Reichsminister Hogg.

10 March 2018

Damn It

I screwed up again!

I made my Karabinek wzór 1988 clone on the wrong day.

Interestingly I didn't make a gun.

Nodak Spud made the gun.  I took delivery on February 20.  I assembled it into a functional state on March 3.

Now I'm spent and don't have any clue about what to do on BAG day!

That's just a month and five days from now!

I guess I could aim for a Polish pistol to go with the Polish rifle, they're even cheap.

$220 gets a C&R eligible P-64.  $230 plus background gets a P-83.  Both in 9x18mm Makarov, which I do not stock.

There's so many other things I wanna do.

Like get some new stocks on that Colt Woodsman Challenger.  That's $90 right there for walnut, more than the gun cost for OEM brown plastic.

Decisions decisions...

Gun Owners Are Not The New Niggers*

We are the new faggots*.

How many years was being gay equated with being a child molester?

Now being a gun owner equates to being a mass murderer.

The good news is we've got the gay rights playbook for recovering our right to keep and bear arms.

Like the gay rights movement, we've got people who're quite comfortable being in the closet and whom are terrified that coming out and being open about being a gun owner will destroy what small freedoms they presently have.

Accommodating the demands of the people who think you should be ashamed doesn't get you more rights, it gets you fewer.

That's what we're doing right now by laying low after every shooting.

We've got to get off our asses and get to rallying and chanting.

We've got to demand "gun day" from Disney.

Do you honestly believe you have fewer rights than a homosexual?  A woman?  An African-American?  The elderly?

Do we have the same rights?  By law we do not, despite our rights being specifically mentioned in the Federal Constitution and most state Constitutions.  Despite sexual orientation, gender, race and age not being mentioned at all.

We've got to get out there and show them that we vastly outnumber the teensy minorities whom have already gotten their way by force of unity.

Let's pick a day and hit those capitols!  December 15th is appropriate, but the weather will be teh suxxor most places.  It works best if we pick a day where the weasels are in session.


*Yes, I said the dread inflammatory and derogatory words.  Sometimes you have to use the actual terms rather than dissemble the meanings of those words by being extra polite so as to not offend.  The actual words are used here to illustrate the hatred expressed towards innocent gun owners on a daily basis.

If you don't recognize why I say niggers it's from a quote, "Gun owners are the new niggers . . . of society" by John Aquilino.  Except for this quote fragment there's scant information about Mr Aquilino out there.

PS: This post is about gun rights, not about homosexuals who've been accused of being child molesters.  Comments along that tack will be deleted.

Remember What I Said About Grudges

Here's someone nursing one:

If you haven't "known" Ricky since he sicc'ed Angela Corey on George Zimmerman even after the police and the local DA said there was no "there" there, you ain't too bright. He's just another filthy piece of Koch-sucking Rove Republican swill. A wannabe Shrub, tryin' hard to be Jeb!! II.

Do you know where "Law Enforcement" live in your neighborhood? Do you know their schedules? Do you know their spouses' schedules? I do. These "laws" are only worth as much as the Blue Wall says they're worth. If there is no Blue Wall, then one can deal with the Elite appropriately at one's leisure.

 He's also begging for some ex parte action from the new law.

Talk about "ain't too bright"!

The new law doesn't distinguish between a real threat and hyperbole.  But the ex parte warrant will say that he threatened both LEO and their families in addition to a veiled threat towards politicians.

As Ambulance Driver says, this law is about silencing dissent.  That there is a none too bright way of dissenting if you don't wanna get actively silenced.

Let's All FUCKING Panic!!!

We lost one.

Not as big a one as it could have been.

Not near as big as an AWB would have been.

We can panic or we can get to work.

Put band-aids on our boo boos, dust ourselves off and work to fix this.

It's not impossible.

The wheels are going to come flying off this legislation next session when they realize they're going to have to pay for it.  The budget was already tight as a drum and there wasn't no $650 million slack in it.

That's where we can start in on suggesting cheaper solutions.

The bump-stock portion is likely constitutionally vague.  But someone needs to be busted with a bump-stock to start it through the courts.  The other things that "increase the rate of fire" to "mimic full-auto", the panic about this is purely theoretical.  Calm down.  That mimicking full auto thing is our lever on proving that all those theoretical speed improvements are not what we're panicking over.

The three day wait is machts nichts.  It's also the easiest part to nuke once we get the other side calmed down.  Notice they needed fresh corpses to get that?

The 21 age for sales is eventually going to get nuked as well.  The silliness of an 18 year old being allowed to own a gun, but not buy a gun will eventually break this down.  Especially once an 18-20 year old gets murdered for a lack of a gun by some psychotic boyfriend that the cops had been systematically ignoring.  We're going to have to learn the steps of the blood dance.

Lead with your left...

The Byzantinian rules for arming the teachers is going to eventually lead to campus carry if we keep at it.  Someone is going to ask how many teachers have been armed and when a clumsy shop teacher has enough fingers to count them, someone is going to say let's skip paying for it.  That's where we bring in the self-funded CCW carrier plan!

We're going to have to decide on a t-shirt color and design and get that fucker up on cafe-press or something and we need to take a couple days off at the start of next session and DEMAND our rights back.

This shit got passed with about 100 people all dressed alike crying in unison.  We didn't get enough notice to beat those numbers as fast as this was passed, but if we cost them a couple days of business at the start of the next session from disrupting business and trapping them in their offices because they can't get past the press of bodies, we might remind them that we're still here.

We need to start the process of primary challenges to all the pricks that voted for this.  It doesn't matter how great they were otherwise.  You put down a previously good dog when it bites you, they've bit us and need to return to private life.

It won't be a small job, but it's a doable job.  Let's get on it!

PS: running and hiding in some other state won't work.  The pricks spread.

Alles En Ordnung

If you want to use Godless Commie magazines in your Godless Commie parts containing rifle, you have to change some parts around.

I'm one short with the magazine in it's original Godless Commie configuration.

So it's either swap out the gas piston, which is a ton of work, or swap out magazine parts.

Followers and floorplates count for one each.  I have followers for four and floorplates for four more coming; so all of my magazines will be compliant with the onerous burden of 922r.

Please Oh Please

Nothing will come of it though.

There's no mens rea in any of these malum prohibitum laws.

The Kindness Of Strangers

Reader Vickersguy from Oriental, NC sent us a package!

Four "bakelite" magazines from Die Deutsche Demokratische Republik with pouch and three "Circle 21" magazines from Bulgaria.


Based on the design of the pouch, I think the East Germans were using the same basic load as the Poles.  One mag in the gun, three in the pouch with four strippers.

Well That's New

Yesterday over 200 people linked in here from Facebook.

On a blog that gets, on average, 1,000 hits a day that's significant.

Now I wonder whom linked to me from Facebook, since it's a generic m.facebook.com link-in.

That's What The Uniform Is For

To the LEO who was defending the policy and procedure of establishing a perimeter while an active shooting mass murder was happening and only entering the building once sufficient force and organization was marshaled; on the grounds that entering piecemeal would cause confusion and endanger their fellow LEO's to being shot by mistake by other LEO's.

Why do you think you're wearing that fancy get-up with a badge and shit?

Why do you think it doesn't look like everyday clothes everyone else wears?

It isn't just so the oppressed masses common citizen can know from which font the authoritah flows.

It's so you can identify your fellow officers at a glance.

You guys so dearly love to play dress-up-like-a-soldier and you missed one of the basic things of soldiering?

Never mind that despite your worry about confusion, that a single person shooting back stops these things dead in their tracks.

What really worries me here is I have a goal that anyone will be able to carry legally right into that school as long as they're legal to own a gun.  Not just specially licensed and sanctioned employees of the state.

If you can't tell your uniformed buddies apart from the terrified victims and the murdering bastards... what chance do I have of being identified as a good guy and avoid being shot?

I want the procedure for that.  I want to know how to coordinate with law enforcement in an established way because in all likelihood, if I'm shooting back at the bad guy; I've been there the entire time while you're just arriving much later.

You don't even pretend to want to establish such rules.

That alone should frighten anyone with a carry permit.
