Perhaps it’s because we expect you to check facts?

Adam Weinstein is butthurt that people who support gun rights expect him to do his job and get the facts. I mean, I understand it can be difficult to know what you’re talking about but you seem capable of research since you can put words on the internet. He refers to it as gunsplaining. A term which should be given the same level of credibility as mansplaining and white privilege (i.e., none).

If you’re advocating for a policy change of legislation, it helps to know what the fuck you’re talking about. And you don’t and that makes you look like a hack.

Well, we saw this one coming

I’m sure this will go well:

Department of Justice moves to ban bump stocks, classifying them as ‘machine guns’ under federal law

One would think that this would be something the Congress would have to do. But now that we’re ruled by unelected bureaucrats, that’s not required. And the president told them to do it.

Well, OK: Mango Used As Weapon In Bellevue Assault


But I doubt it will go anywhere: Yes, The ATF ARE Investigating The Dumb Anti-Gun Virginia Candidate Who Sawed The Barrel Of An AR-15

Very cool

Watch a quick shot in super slow motion:


I’m skeptical

The Justice Department wants more money so ATF can process NFA paperwork faster. And I’m sure the always think forfeiture crowd will only use the money for that.

In California:

A Rocklin High School teacher is on paid administrative leave over her views about the national school walk out. The teacher says all she did was open up a debate about the politics of the protest in her classroom.

Sounds like a good lawsuit to me.

Gun Violence Restraining Orders

Publicola is none to pleased with the Metrocon Fortnightly’s embrace of GVROs. Neither am I. Due process and all. I’m also not a fan of NRA’s apparent embrace of something that is different but mostly the same. But Sebastian is correct that means the NRA has calculated that it will likely lose that fight.


So, Denver banned bump stocks. Now, they’re surprised no one is turning them in.

Nocks volley gun

Not a fan of 1911s err 2011s, but that gun looks snazzy.

And I’m back

Didn’t follow the news. Didn’t care. Playing catch up. Saw this in Miami and thought it was cool:

Sorry about that

Out of the country where weed is the norm and bank regs are lax. Be back Mondayish. Talk amongst yourselves.

With their wallet

Membership in gun rights groups is up. The local press reported last week’s gun show had a record turnout in both vendors and attendees. After a bunch of teenagers threaten NRA members and gun owners in general, this is the result. Good.

Good for him


An Oregon man filed suits Monday claiming Dicks Sporting Goods and Walmart discriminated against the 20-year-old when they refused to sell him a rifle.

What about a 20 year old single mom who wants a rifle to protect her home?

And after they ban guns

Knife crime is up in London. Obviously, they must do something about it.

Enforcing the laws on the books

New Gun Bill Would Mandate Reporting of Buyers Blocked by Background Check:

A bipartisan group of senators today unveiled legislation requiring federal authorities to notify state law enforcement officials when a person barred from purchasing a gun attempts to do so.

Shouldn’t they maybe inform the ATF?

About those companies distancing from the NRA

Delta sold a reported 13 tickets for the NRA discount. And for their stance, they’ll likely lose a lot more business.


I laughed

The usual suspects are behind the supposed groundswell for gun control coming from the kids in Florida.

IIRC, it was an after thought by the Army.

I chuckled a little

Walmart will no longer sell rifles to those under 21. Dick’s Sporting Goods will no longer sell “assault rifles” which is kind of surprising because if they were selling “assault rifles” that would have been illegal.

FedEx didn’t abandon the NRA but issued some silly statement supporting gun control. So, I kind of laughed today when FedEx delivered my bump stock.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent?

Students Participating in Gun Control Walkout Are Arrested After They Throw Rocks, Damage Cars


A bill to ban bump stocks.

Will they ban 3D printing too?

Nifty. Not certain how it works.

6 ‘Absolute Truths’ Preached by Gun Snobs. I laughed a bit.

But narrative!

The Florida shooter used ten round magazines because 30 rounders wouldn’t fit in his bag.

And his gun apparently jammed:

The weapon and bullets were not high quality and were breaking apart,

Anyone know the brand?
