Not very scientific

Or all that American: White men are stockpiling guns! Specifically, rednecks. Forget all those stories about African Americans and women being the fastest growing demo for guns and carry permits.

I’d suggest faster rocks

Well, OK:

Students in one Pennsylvania county will be armed with rocks in case of school shooting, superintendent says

How about putting some folks in there who have machines that can throw rocks at about 1,300 feet per second?

The internet of things

So, YouTube/Google banned instructional gun video uploads. So, InRange TV is uploading their stuff to PornHub. Heh.

The party of smaller government

Republicans passed a $1+ trillion dollar spending bill. The president signed it. The bill funds gun control.

How’s that repealing Obamacare, National Reciprocity, HPA, and other stuff coming since the Rs have both houses and the white house? Oh, right. I guess Trump is part of “the swamp” now.

Obama: Let’s get the highest national deficit in history!
Trump: Hold my beer.

Go forth and be clueful

And interesting survey of 100 Rangemaster certified instructors and what and how they carry.

Monopolies of information

YouTube is targeting the gun culture. So is Reddit. But Reddit is small potatoes compared to Google. This action from Google will impact the next generation of shooters in that they won’t have access to information. And there could be fewer of them.

So, regulation is coming? Government has busted monopolies before.

The Stoner Machinegun: A Navy Seal Remembers

From one of my favorite, though rarely updated, blogs Arms of the 80s:

True

BJ Campbell:

There is no clear correlation whatsoever between gun ownership rate and gun homicide rate. Not within the USA. Not regionally. Not internationally. Not among peaceful societies. Not among violent ones. Gun ownership doesnt make us safer. It doesnt make us less safe. The correlation simply isnt there. It is blatantly not-there. It is so tremendously not-there that the not-there-ness of it alone should be a huge news story.

What stops a mass shooter?

And what doesn’t.

Heh: Harambe peep sights.

True

After taking a CCW class on Instagram:

Public education

Students suspended in NJ for posting pictures of guns on social media with the caption “fund day at the range”

We should really bring back tar and feathers.

And Fix NICS wouldn’t have stopped this

The Daily Wire:

On Wednesday, acting FBI deputy director David Bowdich testified during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that former President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice forced the FBI to delete over 500,000 fugitives, who had outstanding arrest warrants, from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Fugitives from justice are prohibited persons.

The TSA at work

They are apparently searching digital flights on domestic flights.

Unpossible

Using guns for security in a school will get people killed. In this case, a would be mass shooter was killed.

Clinging

The Brady Campaign to Cling to Relevancy is propping up some poor family for disappointment and, maybe, financial ruin with a frivolous lawsuit.

The last time they did this, it ended badly for the family in question.

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.

Assault mango

Well, OK: Mango Used As Weapon In Bellevue Assault

Good

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:

Impressive.

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.

Doubleplusungood crimethink

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.

Shocking

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

Gun Porn

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:
