Sadly, they control the future of information. Unless something changes.

A reader emails:

Go to google’s site, and enter “AR10”, and click the “Shopping” link. You’ll get numerous results as you’d expect, probably because Google as not figured out that an AR10 is an evil assault rife.

Now try it with “AR15”: “Your search did not match any shopping results”

They won’t even say that it violates their policy. They just make the information disappear.

Here are the links: AR-15 v. AR-10

Hit them in the wallet

So, Delta decided to yank benefits for NRA members. As such, the Georgia LG is blocking their tax exemption for jet fuel. To the tune of $50M.

A few things on the NRA bennies. Not a lot of members are aware of them. I never new I got a lot of those discounts. I did, however, use their life insurance. It was a good rate and reasonable coverage. But I never knew I got car rental and plane discounts.

And what were these companies thinking? Do they think the 17 year old kids and twitter bots harassing them will ever be customers? And do they think the NRA’s 5M members will continue use their services? Most will. Until NRA sends a notice out in America’s First Freedom and Shooting Illustrated. But then, I’m guessing they’ll lose some business.

But I see otherwise in the news!

Schools are safer than they were in the 90s, and school shootings are not more common than they used to be, researchers say

But that’s not the narrative.

Haven’t heard this one in a while

A supposed history professor trots out the old “the second amendment doesn’t say what it clearly says” bit. That bit of creation science thinking (developing your conclusion then working backward) has been debunked rather a lot.

The Trumpening

CNN:

President Donald Trump told a gathering of state governors on Monday that “we have to have action” in the wake of the latest US mass shooting and urged governors not to be “afraid” of challenging the National Rifle Association.

I think he needs to think before speaking.

And they should

Dems fear overreach as left presses assault weapon ban

Also, they went on a step further and pushed a bill that bans semi-autos that take magazines.

In an election year.

Glenn with some truth:

But since the point of gun control is to humiliate and grind down flyover people and demonstrate that the Ruling Class is ultimately the, well, Ruling Class not to control crime the appearance of submission is probably enough. Plus, a seldom enforced and often ignored law is ideal if you want to be able to target troublesome individuals later.

Yup.

Enforce the laws on the books

The Grassley Cruz bill does that. Though it should be done already.

Pragmatic

Why the AR-15 shouldn’t be banned. That would appeal to more moderate folks than my personal line of you don’t get a say.

A resurgence of the gun control movement

Sebastian:

Now, I do believe that social media has greatly enhanced the ability of a small number of determined activists to intimidate traditional companies who dont really get social media. But in 2008, they did not have even a small number of determined activists.

If you really want to annoy the other side, join the NRA. They’re running special discounts.

That didn’t go as planned

Florida gun show sees record attendance. Good.

I just ordered a bump stock because Donald Trump says I shouldn’t have one. Sure, that issue is a political loser for us. And it won’t break my heart provided we get something in return. But I’m the uppity sort that buys things people want to ban.

That ended well

The Florida shooting gets weirder and weirder

Two more students say CNN scripted the alleged town hall.

One names the names of those at CNN.

Now it’s alleged that four deputies hid while the shooting was going on.

Someone needs educate the photogenic kid who’s reading the gun control talking points about the powers of the governor. Of course, it’s because the governor is a Republican and the sheriff, who is at fault, is not.

Were school officials told to gun down on the number of arrests to get grant money? Looks like it. They were incentivized not to prosecute the shooter. Then he may have not passed the background check.

Pathetic

Law enforcement was aware of the Florida shooter. They were warned repeatedly and it sill happened.

An officer was on the scene when the shooting happened. He never entered the building or engaged the shooter. He’s resigned. Apparently, he took a position and radioed it in. Is that the protecting or the serving? Granted, it may have been a training issue as police, until recently, did tend to show up, secure the area, etc. But I don’t think that’s the case anymore.

Perhaps it is, then, a bit of projection that the sheriff is blaming the NRA for his department’s repeated failures. You, sir, are a clown.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent?

Attendees of the ridiculous town hall threatened NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch saying burn her. Good thing she had a security detail, who probably had guns, to get her out of there.

So, CNN had a town hall

I was unavailable yesterday because Junior was being honored by the, err, Honor Society. But I’ve been catching up.

CNN should be embarrassed over their town hall. But that requires some level of awareness that they don’t have. It was moderated by a guy who used to work for Handgun Control, Inc. The audience was stacked against the pro rights side. And basically consisted of kids, recently the victims of something horrific, hysterically emoting and virtue signaling. I mean, seriously, this is considered discourse? It was a disgrace.

A survivor claims CNN gave him scripted questions. The good guys say they were not informed of how things were going to go. Another survivor says CNN just wants them to promote an agenda, not actually opine. It was scripted.

It’s like the anti-gunners are running the black lives matter playbook.

Beware the metrocons

What he said.

Speaking of, the WSJ says republicans should not add reciprocity to a gun bill. Uh, no. I want something in return. I realized WSJ is similar to SJW but give me a break.

Life in the future

The square root sign looks like a gun. The police were called.

The future is stupid.

Now that’s funny

Heh:

Just last week, Congress was calling on Tide to change the design of the Pods so teenagers would stop eating them. This week, teenagers should determine gun policy.

And we shouldn’t base policy on the emotional reactions of freaked out victims.
