Chgicago's Anti-Gun Bullshit Gets Struck Down Again (And Rightfully So) And the Federal Judge Who Did It Is On Trump's Short List As A Supreme Court Nominee

Ever since the Heller decision Chicago has done everything it could to stop its citizens from exercising their 2nd Amendment rights. Every single time though, they get taken to court and they lose.

Every single time.

And its happened again. They never learn.

What a bunch of Assholes. LOLS!!!

Update To NY Gravity Knife Law Veto

Just to keep everyone in the loop, especially any NYC residents, regarding everybody's non-favorite Governor (who still thinks he has a shot at a Presidential run in 2020), good old Andrew "Angry Eyes" Cuomo.

Welcome To The New Year, Say Hello To The Same old Shit In NY

Courtesy of our illustrious Governor, Andrew "Angry Eyes" Cuomo!

If you refer to my post of 5 Dec,
See: http://wwwblackthorn.blogspot.com/2016/12/politics-strange-bedfellows-ans-archaic.html
you will see there was a bill to modify an old NY knife law that allowed Police, primarily in NYC, to arrest people in possession of one hand opening knives by calling them Gravity Knives (even if they weren't). After letting the Bill sit on his desk for months, at the absolute last moment of 2016, old Angry Eyes decided to veto the bill.
See: http://knifenews.com/new-york-governor-cuomo-vetoes-gravity-knife-and-switchblade-reform-bill/

However since the Bill was passed almost unanimously in both the State Senate as well as the Democratic party dominated Assembly, an override would be unstoppable.

My best guess is that Cuomo is counting on the override passing,at which point he can just say he did his job by vetoing the bill, and that there was nothing he could do.

As far as I'm concerned, as long as the Bill goes through, I don't give a shit what machinations it has to go through.

Especially since it's going to piss off The NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio. :-)

Liberals Buying Guns....

.... because the Trump presidency is going to bring about race war and societal collapse.

You can't make this shit up.

My favorite picture in the article is the one of the Liberal Gun Club with Their AR's and they've all got big grins on their face.

Stupid Gun Owner Of The Week Award

And it goes to this North Carolina homeowner whose aim (unfortunately for her)was apparently better than her decision making abilities.

Another hoople making life harder for the rest of us.

California Gun Store Owners Use 1st Amendment to protect the 2nd

Several gun store owners in California have filed for relief from a state law that bans them from advertising what they sell on the fronts of their stores

ie: No pictures of firearms are allowed.

Fortunately they found a Law Firm that knows their business. The decisions have not come down yet, but it appears as if the Federal Judges are ready to rule that the State law is a violation of the stores 1st Amendment rights.

Sometimes you just need to bring a lawyer to your gunfight.

This one Goes Out To My Niece In The Air Force

Any plane where you can shoot off one of the engines, half a wing, most of the tail and know that you're safe from ground-fire because the pilot sits in what is essentially a titanium bathtub that weighs over half a ton, is OK by me!

Because when you need a tank utterly destroyed by the ugliest jet aircraft ever fielded by the USAF, you gotta' have the A-10 Warthog.

Accept no substitutes!

Politics, Strange bedfellows, and Archaic Knife Laws in NYC

Under the leadership of Cy Vance Jr. as District attorney, police have for the past 5 years or more been interpreting a 60+ year old law designed to take switchblades off the street to lock people up for carrying something as mundane as a Swiss Army knife. Owing to the fact that the bulk of the arrests, and the resulting criminal records, have fallen excessively on minorities in the city, there has been a call for a change.
A bill has since wound it's way through the NY state Assembly and Senate was passed in June of this year. The bill was to modify and clarify the true definition of what a 'Gravity Knife' is or isn't. The bill has yet to reach the the Governors desk for signing.

There is pressure, mostly from the Mayor, District Attorney and Police Commissioner of NYC not to sign it. Gov. Cuomo has not taken a stand either way. In actuality it may not matter. The Bill passed both house with overwhelming majorities. The vote was 99 to 12 in the Assembly, and unanimous in the Senate, setting up even a veto for an easy override that would allow the Bill to become Law.

To me, the best and most interesting part of this is the odd collection of disparate parties that came together from various political special interest groups. And If I can benefit from an 'Identity Politics' based piece of legislation, I'm certainly not going to complain.

Interesting times indeed.
