Bloomberg trying to buy Virginia

By, interestingly, not focusing on the gun issue. Likely because he knows it’s a loser.

But you’ll give away your position

Red dots vs. lasers for self defense pistols.

I have both. And like both. I have two carry guns with lasers, one red and one green. The green is better in the day time because it’s easier to see than a red laser. The red dot, to me, is also easier to see in the daylight. I do favor the red laser at night, though.

One more advantage of the laser is as a training aid. Find a shooter who has never shot with a laser before and let them try out your laser equipped gun. They’ll realize exactly how much that red dot on the wall sways and moves up and down.

Obama on guns

He says he’s not going to take your guns away. Just ban you being able to obtain anymore that he thinks aren’t appropriate.

Meanwhile, there are fewer gun crimes prosecuted under Obama than Bush. Well, that could make some sort of sense, after all. We have had some court cases striking down certain gun laws.

Someone is wrong on the internet

Sorry, Les, but you’re wrong. There is another one:

Knock, knock
Who’s there?
I ate mop
I ate mop who
LOL you ate your poo

Another joke that doesn’t translate well when written.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent?

And, also, not particularly bright:

Youre those fucking people that put guns in the hands of killers. Guns dont save lives, gun kill people, you stupid fuck.

No, fuck you. Are you going to fucking shoot me? Heres a better idea, you sick fuck: Why dont you shoot yourself!

Speaking of grassroots

Does Moms Demand really have 3M members? No.

But the sign says

People really think signs work.

Full metal icecubes

These look pretty neat. Sadly, I could never use them. I have this weird thing where I can taste metal that’s touched metal. If my fork touches my knife, I can tell.

Amish suing to buy gun without ID

Having an ID violates his religious principles. Need an ID to peaceably assemble, vote, get a job, and more. This could be interesting.

Judge dismisses charges for shooting down a drone

Good:

The next time something like this happens, they’re gonna refer to it, Merideth said about future cases involving drones. Now I don’t encourage people to just go out and start blasting stuff for no reason – but three times in one day, three times over the course of a year, six times total, over one property? That’s not right, that’s harassment.”

Heh: What, No “Moms” Discount?

That gun registry we don’t have

ATF has a huge storage facility

But police support gun control!

NRA ILA: California: County Sheriffs Sue Los Angeles over Ordinance Prohibiting Possession of Large-Capacity Magazines. More:

Now, 30 duly elected California Sheriffs, two law enforcement organizations, the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA), and several other individuals have filed a lawsuit seeking to invalidate the ordinance. The lawsuit challenges the magazine possession ban on legal preemption grounds, because California state law specifically allows for the possession of such magazines.

Tears of hippies

Ladd is butthurt that suppressors are becoming popular and the market is responding.

Who is the officer going to assault?

I guess the reporter didn’t get the memo that a self-loading, politically incorrect rifle belongs to the police, it’s a “patrol rifle“: Officer loses assault rifle while changing flat tires

Narrative

Shorter WaPo: No real relationship between carrying guns and crime, so you’re wrong to support it.

SAF getting their lawsuit on

From their website:

Plaintiffs challenging a so-called gun violence tax recently passed by the Seattle City Council have today filed a motion for summary judgment in their lawsuit, citing Washington States long-standing preemption statute which fully occupies and preempts the entire field of firearms regulation within the boundaries of the state. The motion was filed in King County Superior Court.

Speaking of “journalism”

That right there is one epic failure of editing or the profession.

Well, they already do that

Sen. Chuck Schumer demands that U.S. Army’s handgun supplier doesnt sell arms to dealers doing business with criminals

Except that headline isn’t reality (“journalism”), what Chucky wants is:

. . . that contract to include two safety provisions the winning bidder must develop “smart gun” technology, and must cut off business ties with the “1 percent” of gun dealers that sell guns to criminals.

Coming for the wookiee suiters

I blame the patriarchy

Man wins woman of the year.

Also, SJW FIGHT!!!:

Australian-born feminist Germaine Greer accused Glamour of misogyny in its decision to award Jenner its woman of the year award, noting that transgender women are not women and do not look like, sound like or behave like women.

DOJ closes investigation of IRS targeting people who are not democrats. No one getting charged.

And if you think Hillary’s email issues will result in something different, I’ve got news for you.

The most busted name in news

Headline: New laws force police to put guns back on the street

What really happened is that some states realized they could earn some extra police money by selling perfectly good commodities to the public.

So, it’s a thing again. For Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself)

The media is welcoming the fact the Democrats spent a few minutes during their debate discussing who wanted to ban guns and civil liberties more. During lunch today with some guys from LuckyGunner, we discussed this very thing. In the last few elections, the talk from the dems was “we respect your second amendment rights but . . .” and now, they seem to be embracing gun control. I pondered if it was because big money guys like Bloomberg had them convinced it was a popular thing or they were just whoring for the money.

At least they’re discussing it openly. Should make for an interesting election.

Hearing Protection Act

The NRA is standing behind a bill that would eliminate the $200 tax on suppressors and require buyers to go through a background check.

If we regulated cars like we did guns, everyone would have to drive with hearing protection on.
