In Chicago

A partial victory in the case against their ban on gun ranges.

And, seriously, why isn’t this at yet! I’d have known this sooner. I keep hinting that their web guys should call me.

So, what caliber for drone?

NJ man arrested for shooting down neighbors drone.

Fence jumper

So, a guy with a pocket knife jumped the White House fence, ran across the lawn, got into a door, overpowered a female secret service agent, and made it all the way to the green room, where he was tackled. And only because an off duty agent happened to be there as he was leaving.

Now, imagine if, at that moment, it was a squad of men with rifles and handguns. They could have probably taken part of the White House. Couldn’t have held it, of course. But they could have taken it.

Grail Guns

I don’t really have one. I treat my guns as tools and don’t really collect them. But Jay has a couple. And so does Borepatch.

Good time to lobby or campaign for it

Oklahoma City beheading: Will jihad-style attack boost ‘bring gun to work’ laws? (+video)

The Vaughan Foods officer who used his gun to stop a beheading attack by a fired employee is protected by a controversial law affirming the right to bring firearms to work. Twenty-two states have followed Oklahoma’s lead.

Can DC cops find out if you have a carry permit from another state?

Well, if newspapers can, I bet they can too.

Man claims he was pulled over in DC because the cops knew he had a FL carry permit.


Newly armed police in China say they fear their guns as much as public

Dunno that I’d want people afraid of guns toting them around and enforcing laws. But it’s China.

But I read it on the internet

Universal gun truths

Get off my team

Range owner won’t allow Muslims:

Not all muslims are terrorists, but almost all terrorists in the world right now are muslim. Since you can’t determine by visual assessment, which ones will kill you and which ones will not, I am going to go with the line of thought that ANY HUMAN BEING who would either knowingly or unknowingly support a “religion” that commands the murder of all people who refuse to submit or convert to that religion, is not someone I want to know or do business with.

Well, how about:

Not all men are rapists, but almost all rapists in the world right now are men.


Not all black people are gang bangers, but almost all gang bangers in the world right now are black.

I’m guessing she’d get sued and lose over this. Anyway, I’m with Sebastian and Caleb that it doesn’t cast gun owners in a very good light.

Well, his radio spots sound like he’s citing the TEA Party

Tennessee Democratic Senate Nominee Plagiarized Almost Everything Written On His Website

But “al Qaeda has been decimated”

I suppose that if you go by the original definition of decimated . . .

Khorosan is al Qaeda. And ISIS or whatever they’re calling it this week was al Qaeda in Iraq or some such before that. At this point, the only reason to keep up with the name is political.

Sudden Jihad Syndrome triggered by getting fired?

The OK beheader was all jihad wanna-be on the face book.

And he’s being Trayvonned. The more recent pictures of him differ quite a bit from the stock image the press is running.

Crank call: Ronald Ritchie should definitely be investigated

John Crawford’s family wants to know why Ritchie’s 911 call doesn’t jive with what actually happened:

Crawford’s father and the family’s attorney said that Ritchie, 24, should be questioned by police over the discrepancy between the footage and his allegation, which he made about 80 seconds before Crawford was shot, and confirmed when asked soon after. Knowingly “making false alarms” is a crime under Ohio law punishable by a fine or jail sentence.

“He was the catalyst, if you will, in the whole sequence of events leading up to my son’s death,” John Crawford Jr told the Guardian. “It was a crank call. He excited the call, and exaggerated the call, and frankly it was just a bunch of lies.”

And they’ve lawyered up.

Fixed blade knives

Glenn is asking about which to get, in jest. I stuck with this folding knife because it’s just as fast and legal in more states:

Last video was OK but this one is less talky in a foreign language. And you can look at my butt. And it’s real speed and simulated slow motion!
