Wikistrat Predictions For 2016

I like this site. They have a habit of looking at situations and coming to reasonably accurate conclusions. The attached link goes to a PDF of their thoughts on the coming events of 2016.

Happy Fucking New Year everyone! :-/

Kurt Russell on Gun Control & The No-Fly List

I've always liked Kurt Russell. Another one of the few actors in Hollywood who aren't hypocrites that go around making a fortune of of blood and guts action movies and then talk shit about gun-control in their spare time. The following link goes to an interview he gave when the reporter started talking about the current efforts by the administration to automatically put people on the no-fly list on a no=buy list for guns. No proof or due process required on the part of the same bureaucrats to prove anything, and if it there's a mistake you have to get a lawyer to find out if you're even on the list, and finally spend a fortune and go through hoops to be removed after you've proven you don't belong on the list.

I'm guessing this reporter wasn't expecting the response he got.

Gun News That Didn't Make The News

First, the Bad;

The Supreme Court Declined to take up a case that would have challenged an assault weapons ban in Illinois.

As I mentioned at another forum I belong to, declining a case is not a loss. It is a setback but also allows for a future case from another jurisdiction with better merits to be made at a later date.

Now the Good;

As usual the anti-gun democrats attempted to use the latest terror attack in San Bernardino as an excuse to add a number of gun control measures to an economic bill.

It didn't work.

You win some, you lose some. The anti-gun right crowd started hammering away in earnest back in 1968 after Bobby Kennedy was killed. They lost a bunch but they didn't quit and eventually succeeded in getting some pretty onerous legislation passed at the local, state and federal levels all across the country. If you're a gun owner in this country and you want to roll back any of these laws and enact more protections for your rights it's real simple.

Just do what the anti-gun rights crowd did and keep at it. There have been more legal successes for gun-rights in the last 7 or 8 years then there have been losses. Vote, organize, donate and don't quit.

It really is that simple.
