Local election stuff

I early voted today. Not sure what this means but I asked the poll worker what turnout had been like. She said it was the largest turnout for the first day she’d seen.

The next thing I noticed is the local talk radio ads. There are all manner of ads for Marsha Blackburn that aren’t ran by her campaign. All of Phil Bredesen’s ads are ran by his campaign. Not sure what that really means, either. Other than PACs are favoring Blackburn.

Another NRA attack

Someone is advocating the Boy Scouts ditch the NRA and start their own firearm safety program.

Get your popcorn

The Brady Campaign to Cling to Relevancy is suing the FBI because a mass shooter passed their background check.

I don’t know who to root for here.

I hope he does something about it

Reason:

Trump Slams Very Unfair Drug Sentences

The presidents comments could improve the prospects for federal penal reform.

But mass shootings are an American thing

An attack at a college kills 19. Unpossible. Russia has all those restrictive gun laws.

First, there was Glock the book

And now, Glock the movie. Some interesting tidbits in the article.

Knife Bleg Update: Initial impressions of the Emerson Commander

After mulling my options, I went with the Emerson Commander. It’s a quality knife. The blade is very well made and feels less, I dunno, Samurai-swordy than the Spyderco. It opens smoothly either by using the Wave or with the thumb. A few pros:

Good weight for a knife that large.

I like that it’s constructed with Phillips head screws instead of those little torx/alan types that, when they are small enough for knife construction, tend to strip.

About the only con I have with the knife is that the body is not tapped for screws so that one can move the carry clip for left pocket carry.

Sears

Tam laments their recent demise.

As a kid, we got their catalog twice per year. And my sister and I would argue over who got it first. See, we’d thumb through it, take a pen, and mark the toys we wanted for Christmas. I spent many, many childhood hours looking through those catalogs, imagining how awesome Christmas was going to be.

Lying to win

Senator McCaskill is running for reelection. She supports all the gun control. Only, she doesn’t want to tell anybody that because it’s a losing issue:

People just cant know that. MO Sen. McCaskill Hides Agenda Including semi-automatic rifle ban from Moderate Voters, Staffers Reveal in Undercover Video it could hurt her ability to get elected.

Well, OK

Police can’t shoot unlicensed dogs

Unless it’s coming right for them:

A federal appeals court ruled today that Detroit police didn’t have carte blanche to shoot a woman’s dogs during a drug raid simply because they weren’t licensed.

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed and remanded a lower court ruling in the case of Nikita Smith, who filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Detroit Police Department after a narcotics raid left three of her dogs dead. A federal judge dismissed Smith’s lawsuit last year, ruling that her dogs, because they were unlicensed, amounted to “contraband” under the Fourth Amendment.

Papers, please.

But nobody wants to take your guns

Eric Swalwell, U.S. Representative from California:

We should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons.

Say when, Sprout.

LA Passes Ordinance Requiring City Contractors To Disclose NRA Ties

This is shameful.

More Bredesen

The Free Beacon:

A top spokesman for the Tennessee Democratic Party’s effort to get Phil Bredesen elected senator has said he views “white male” gun owners as “the biggest terrorist organization on the planet.”

And we’re supposed to be the racists.

Elizabeth Warren is 1/1024th Indian. Maybe.

And the jokes are funny. Trump should donate 1/1024th of the million to her charity of choice.

Was it an assault woodwind?

Cops get called about a man carrying a rifle. It was a bassoon.

And “assault woodwind” would make for a great band name.

I have nothing to add.

Sorry about that

Been away. The State of Tennessee had decided that you don’t know how to adequately divert storm-water. So, they have to teach you how to do it. So many words spent just to say “plant grass” and “use silt fencing”.

The smartest woman in the world

I wish Hillary Clinton would just go away. Funny how losing Republicans tend to but not Dems. But I digress.

In a world where a Bernie bro shot hundreds of rounds at Republican lawmakers*, seriously injuring one; Rand Paul was beaten up by a Democrat; someone attempted to stab a republican; and democrats are rioting in the streets; she says:

You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,

She may be right. Only not for her party.

Rand Paul is concerned that someone is going to get killed.

* Funny how that one didn’t really get wall to wall media coverage.

Most of us call that reloading

The NYT calls it DIY ammunition.

Another product created by stupid gun laws

The Remington V3 Tac-13. It’s a 13 inched barrel shotgun that doesn’t require going through the NFA process.

Shotty v. Carbine

Tam has some wise words on the topic. I’m likely to go with carbine and it’s not that I think shotties are bad. My shotty is too long. And, at casa de unc, I have a sooper seekrit area where I keep an AR-15 accessible within a few seconds but you’d never know it was there. And my shotty is definitely too long for that location.

I’d like to see comparable rifle and shotgun data.

I concur

I, too, have never gotten the appeal of horror movies. Mostly, because I don’t really dig the gore and because I get so mad watching them when the characters do something irretrievably stupid. And most horror movies would be over in about two minutes if someone had a gun.
