Deal Alert

$25 off Dewalt purchases.

Via Wizard, who says he doesn’t know drills.

I like Dewalt just fine however, the one I use mostly these days is this Bosch Drill/Impact Driver set. The battery life is pretty amazing, which is important to me. And it’s on sale. Cheap. Every once in a while, you can snag them for under two bills at Lowe’s.

One freaked out victim shaming a politician is not a political movement . . . it’s a blog post

The NRA is at the end of its rope, while they have blood to dance in. Or something. Yawn.

Criminals and gun control

They’re all for it

Democrats want to get rid of the Tiahrt amendment

Of course, they do. This, though, is one I would actually worry they could pull off.

Gays with Guns: A Growing Subculture?


A convicted felon supports gun control. Of course!

You can’t teach kids they have rights

If you do, how will they grow up not thinking the government is the end all, be all:

A Batavia High School teacher’s fans are rallying to support him as he faces possible discipline for advising students of their Constitutional rights before taking a school survey on their behavior.

Hey, those point things on a tactical flashlight do stuff.

The Fire Hedgehog: 88 PPSH SMGs mounted in the bombay of a Tu-2

The Fire Hedghog is just what the title says. It was 88 PPSH submachine guns each with a 75-round drum magazine mounted in the bombay of a Tu-2 used for strafing ground targets. This, although very unlikely, would be so cool as an option in war thunder.
