I get the sentiment

Ahem. But some of us did.

Life in the future

Tesla unveiled their new roadster, that can reach 60 in under two seconds, with an electric semi.

Speaking of failing to enforce gun laws

Richard Pollock:

A June 2016 Justice Department Inspector Generals report revealed that between 2008 and 2015 the U.S. Attorneys office considered prosecuting less than 32 people per year for lying on form 4473, the federal application to buy guns.

Seems the lack of enforcement is pretty systemic.

Turkey’s gun culture

Gun ownership has soared there. To be honest, this headline surprised me as I was unaware of their gun laws. Turns out, there gun laws are categorized as restrictive. Seems they have a lot of unlicensed and unregistered guns.

Another failure to enforce gun control laws

Noted gun expert Joe “handsy” Biden weighs in

He says the guy who shot the shooter in Texas shouldn’t have that kind of rifle. I kinda think it’s a good thing he did.

Another failure of gun control

The shooter in California (highest rated for gun control by the Brady Bunch) had been jailed and had a restraining order against him. mumble mumble enforce laws on books mumble mumble.

A bill to require the military to report domestic violence to NICS.

Take someone shooting

Because we have to get out from under mass shootings:

Invite people to shoot. Bring them to your clubs. Not a member of a local club? Join one. I dont care if they are a bunch of Fuddy Duddy old codgers. You cant change something from he outside, and we have to preserve those places to shoot for future generations. Familiarity is the immunization that will protect the second group from the first. Were not going to win this by sperging on the Internet (says the blogger). Get out there in the community and help build it.

Heh

If the Law Is This Complicated, Why Shouldnt Ignorance Be an Excuse?

I’m having a bit of an issue with the IRS. It seems that the social security administration reported to the IRS the wrong information regarding wages I’ve paid. So, the IRS took the reasonable step of threatening to seize my bank accounts. When they finally figure it out, they can get away with calling it ignorance.

I don’t get it.

Nolan Finley:

I went through the questions, starting with name, address, etc., and moving toward the serious business: Have you ever been convicted of a crime? Under a restraining owner for domestic abuse? Been treated for mental illness?

After the salesperson hit the send button, I noticed I had misspelled my last name. So I had to start over. And over. And over. And over.

Five times I tried to fill out the form correctly, and each time I noticed a mistake and had to start again from the beginning. Nothing makes me lose my mind quicker than technology. I was fuming. Muttering under my breath. Stomping my foot. Grimacing. And yes, cussing.

They didn’t sell him the gun, which he understands. But, honestly, is the form that hard?

Domestic abusers

South Carolina passed a law to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers. They’re not enforcing the law.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, a county commission is funding the police to the tune of $600K specifically to get guns from domestic abusers.

Seems like an awful lot of trouble: Suppressed revolver.
