New Yorks Gun Laws Just Get Weirder and Weirder

OK, I've been sick the past two days and this is the first interesting article I found when I finally got around to perusing the local news. This article starts off with a state reward for reporting people with illegal guns. It's apparently been in place for two years and has never been used.
But while that is point of the article, It's the last two paragraphs about NY's new magazine law (7 rounds) that is really interesting.
Now Cuomo says he's not backpedalling, but considering his falling poll numbers since he passed the SAFE Act behind closed doors with no input from the public, not only is this mumbo jumbo he's spouting now confusing as hell, but it sure as shit looks like backpedalling to me. Not to mention that it appears to be pretty unenforceable.

Now China's Getting On The Drone Wagon

Drones are cheap, easy to build, can carry a decent payload, and when they "swarm" like a bunch of locusts, they present a deadly, disposable threat.

Oh brother......

Blackthorns "Hypocritical Hoseshit Of The Week" Award

I know it's only Sunday, but technically that is the start of the new week. And while I should wait until later this week to make a final decision, I don't think this one is going to get topped.

You just gotta' love gun control people who say one thing and then do another.

TSA Finally Showing Some Common Sense...

..About knives on airplanes. But don't go beaking out your favorite Tacticool, Ninja Death-Master 3000 pocket clipped, one hand opener just yet.

First it was the phasing out of the backscatter -Ray machines, and now small pocketknives.

Will wonders never cease.....

"Detroit Breakdown, Motor City Shakedown"

Title of an old song by the J. Geils band, but apropos to the current situation in Detroit. The link below is an update on yesterdays news of the Michigan Governors decision to declare a financial emergency in Detroit. All the usual suspects are out complaining. I guess they already see their place at the feeding trough slipping away.
Well isn't that just too bad.

Are You Carrying? The Drones Will Know!

OK, thus makes 3 posts for the day. I'll leave you guys with this last one to chew on for the rest of the weekend.

Think Your Pump Shotguns Are Safe?

One never knows in 21st century America.

The Downward Spiral Of Detroit Continues

For anybody who has been reading this blog for any length of time, you know that I have been following the horror story that has become the City of Detroit for some months now. It appears that the State of Michigan is about to name a Financial Manager for the city.
As you also might expect, the crooks and assholes that have through theft, corruption, stupidity and incompetence helped bring what was once a major American city to it's knees, have begun running their mouths and screaming about this is unfair. It's not the American way, it's 'Dictatorship', it's racist!!!
Big surprise huh?
For the past 2 or three years they have worked out deals with the state to allow for some outside control and assistance, but the ingrained greed and arrogance of the elected officials have have prevented any meaningful change.
The fact is that after the decline of the American auto and steel industries, which essentially drove the economic engine of the region for so long, began in the late 70's and early 80's, Detroit has been on a downward spiral. Even the State doesn't know if this financial takeover of the City's finances will prevent the continued slow death, but the one thing that is certain is that all the half measures so far have not worked to date.

Let's see what happens.
