Journalism

Headline: East Tennessee congressmen vote against domestic violence bill

What the bill really does: authorizes funding for programs to help prosecute cases of sexual assault and domestic abuse and provides assistance for victims of the crimes

See, domestic violence = money. Or something.

Self-righteous, political song lyrics that are stupid

Rage Against the Machine’s Down Rodeo

Yeah I’m rollin’ down Rodeo with a shotgun
These people ain’t seen a brown skin man
Since their grandparents bought one

Yes, no one in California has seen a brown skinned man. And, you know, California being the slave stat that it was . . . oh, wait. Or did a bunch of southerners move there? Those southerner’s grandparents probably weren’t around during the slave days. Just sayin’.

Going on offense

They’re trying that in Florida. At the federal level, NRA should go on offense as well. Probably been long enough they no longer have to play nice-nice. I’d have someone attach national concealed carry to every gun bill that makes it anywhere near the floor.

Evil

Yeah, pretty much

Mayor Against Guns

Under fire for exorbitant costs to have security detail hang out with him in bars while he hangs on women who are not his wife.

Like you and me, only better

NY gun ban to be amended to exempt film industry.

In potential assault weapons ban news

A good review of some of the goings on in the senate: ‘Assault Weapon’ Banners Still Can’t Say What an ‘Assault Weapon’ Is. Hand guard, barrel shroud? What’s the diff?

Also, Feinstein says weapons she doesn’t approve are unnecessary ‘personal pleasures’. My rights to free speech and religion are also unnecessary ‘personal pleasures’.

And in boycott NY news

Wilson to stop sales. So does GunUp.

Magpul allows distributors to continue sales to NY. Not like they can stop.

I’m glad to see some companies stop sales there but not all are going to. So, stop eating our own over this.

Speaking of NY

They ban guns then have an expo featuring all those guns.

UnSAFE

This ought to be good: State Supreme Court wants NYS to show good cause that gun law is constitutional

The thing about NY’s law is that it is so onerous, it will definitely be struck down in part and possibly in its entirety.

Obviously, compensating for the size of her penis

58 year old woman pulls gun on home invader and he leaves.

Rally ’round the family

Largest gun rally ever: 12,000 showed up.

AR-15 facts

Make the TV news. I’m impressed.

Guns in parking lots bill to the governor

And he will likely sign it.

Also, mention this bill that has nothing to do with the CT shooting and Newtown at the same time. That’s journalism!

So long, Tactical Car

Me: I’m selling my favorite thing today.
Father in law: Your kids?
Me: No, my car.

I no longer need Tactical Car, which I love. The objective realization that it took up garage space I needed, I paid insurance for a car I drove twice a week, and a few other factors led me to decide to sell it. And so, I will turn over the keys to the new owner tomorrow. Here it is with the vehicle I now mostly drive reflecting off of its awesome blackness:

Suck exhaust note, hippie.

Suck exhaust note, hippie.

I’ll miss zero to sixty in five seconds, how awesome everything from This Darkened Heart to Jessie’s Girl sounds through the Bose sound system, the way it accelerated like you were on a horse that just got slapped hard in the ass, and taking turns at high speed.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, we need some high speed moments alone.

Wired: The AR-15 Is More Than a Gun. It’s a Gadget
