ATF to shut down gun store

Over a paperwork error rate of 2.8%

The times they are a changin’

The AP:

Republican presidential hopeful Rand Paul planned Tuesday to court donors from the new marijuana industry, making the Kentucky senator the first major-party presidential candidate to publicly seek support from the legal weed business.

Paul’s fundraiser at the Cannabis Business Summit – tickets start at $2,700, the maximum donation allowed for the primary contest – comes as the marijuana industry approaches its first presidential campaign as a legal enterprise.

The “Gadget”

Expect an announcement Friday.

What caliber for shark?

Sebastian posits that most people, even gun nuts, do not carry at the beach. And that the Tunisia beach massacre could be a terrorist template used here.

I always have a gun with me at the beach. Because the beach usually has a bunch of drunk people on it and thinks can go tango uniform in that type of scene. I do so by using this maxpedition bag which has a place just for a gun. It’s, obviously, off-body carry. While I don’t like the off body carry, it has its places. I’ve also stored them in the side pocket of a cooler. I tend to make sure I clean the gun when we get back in town due to salt and sand and general beachery.

More hoo-hah carry


After a search of the white Pontiac, police did not immediately locate a weapon, but Cook noticed the woman had her hand inside her pants and called Lt. Dawn Westerfield to the scene. Westerfield discovered the barrel of a loaded .38-caliber Colt revolver protruding from the woman’s vagina and removed the handgun, which had three spent rounds, the report states.

ATF official under investigation

For accessing personal data of other employees. If they’ll do that to their own, imagine what they do with your data.

But Obama says that only happens here

Gunman kills 37 in Tunisia. And in France, a beheading and explosions.

And, generally not paying attention to the news, the Supreme Court decided to important cases. They declared, using the 14th amendment, that there is a constitutional right to gay marriage. I’ve long supported gay marriage but this seems a bit of a stretch in terms of their actually being a “right to marry” in the first place.

Up next, in a twist of reasoning and a 6-3 vote, they’ve upheld Obamacare (now SCOTUSCare) by saying the law doesn’t mean what it says but it means what people think it means. Or something.

I’m actually surprised at how neither case surprised me. Yeah, you heard me. But in these cases, as with the Bruce Jenner and this Confederate flag non-thing, I find myself more fascinated at the reaction of the culture more than the issues themselves. Everything from the gloating to the people I see on facebook praying for God to overturn the supreme courts. Interesting times.

Jeb Bush on gun control

He’s not for it. Unless it’s at the state level. Or something.

On culture

Yeah, pretty much.

Bloomberg’s anti-gun website is up and running. This should be entertaining. They’ve taken a lesson from other anti-gun sites and do not allow comments.

National reciprocity

The NRA is pushing for it:

The head of the nations biggest gun rights group urged Congress Friday to pass legislation to allow gun owners to carry concealed weapons across state lines.

During the second day of the Conservative Political Action Conference, Executive Vice President and CEO of the National Rifle Association Wayne LaPierre said its time for Congress to act and pass the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act.

The four rules

They prevent this sort of thing: A Knoxville woman suffered accidental gunshot wounds to her leg and hand Tuesday afternoon when a man she was with showed off the weapon to a friend, according to the Knoxville Police Department.

It applies to throwing axes too:

Marriage equality: Sharing a felony

In New Jersey, a man was denied a gun permit because his wife is a convicted felon, accused of domestic violence. Well, he shouldn’t be allowed to vote either.
