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.
