What could possibly go wrong?
Wake up to texts from family asking if I was OK. Turns out, a train derailed about 2.5 miles from the house with some nasty chemical spill. Details here. Local yokels, be careful out there.
I view AR-15s the same way I view Glocks and M&Ps. They’re just guns. They’re not pretty and don’t require babying. But I went to a new (to me) gun shop in The City (My The City) called Bill’s Outpost and they had some ARs with wooden furniture. They were gorgeous. You can see a color photo here.
Bloomberg’s anti-gun group tries to take credit for gun industry lead fixes to the NICS.
Not only will the TSA open your bags and take pictures of the contents to post on twitter, the feds will later steal your money because you must have been up to something.
Given that he recently announced his aim of running for president, he needs some pro gun bona fides:
Acting on his commitment to ensure a fair application of the states gun laws that respects individual rights to possess firearms and that also protects public safety, Governor Christie today took action to make commonsense changes to New Jerseys gun regulations that ensure victims of domestic violence or violent crime, or those living under a direct or material threat, have their firearms applications processed quickly and without delay.
Has he pulled a Mitt Romney yet and went out and bought a NRA life membership?
Democrat Leland Yee plead guilty. He was the anti-gun politician who offered to broker the sale of machine guns and rockets.
Republican presidential hopeful Rand Paul planned Tuesday to court donors from the new marijuana industry, making the Kentucky senator the first major-party presidential candidate to publicly seek support from the legal weed business.
Paul’s fundraiser at the Cannabis Business Summit – tickets start at $2,700, the maximum donation allowed for the primary contest – comes as the marijuana industry approaches its first presidential campaign as a legal enterprise.
Meet the next generation of gun owners. Pretty good piece, I thought.
M&P Shield commercial, takes a shot at Glock:
Sebastian posits that most people, even gun nuts, do not carry at the beach. And that the Tunisia beach massacre could be a terrorist template used here.
I always have a gun with me at the beach. Because the beach usually has a bunch of drunk people on it and thinks can go tango uniform in that type of scene. I do so by using this maxpedition bag which has a place just for a gun. It’s, obviously, off-body carry. While I don’t like the off body carry, it has its places. I’ve also stored them in the side pocket of a cooler. I tend to make sure I clean the gun when we get back in town due to salt and sand and general beachery.
After a search of the white Pontiac, police did not immediately locate a weapon, but Cook noticed the woman had her hand inside her pants and called Lt. Dawn Westerfield to the scene. Westerfield discovered the barrel of a loaded .38-caliber Colt revolver protruding from the woman’s vagina and removed the handgun, which had three spent rounds, the report states.

And, generally not paying attention to the news, the Supreme Court decided to important cases. They declared, using the 14th amendment, that there is a constitutional right to gay marriage. I’ve long supported gay marriage but this seems a bit of a stretch in terms of their actually being a “right to marry” in the first place.
Up next, in a twist of reasoning and a 6-3 vote, they’ve upheld Obamacare (now SCOTUSCare) by saying the law doesn’t mean what it says but it means what people think it means. Or something.
I’m actually surprised at how neither case surprised me. Yeah, you heard me. But in these cases, as with the Bruce Jenner and this Confederate flag non-thing, I find myself more fascinated at the reaction of the culture more than the issues themselves. Everything from the gloating to the people I see on facebook praying for God to overturn the supreme courts. Interesting times.
He’s not for it. Unless it’s at the state level. Or something.
Yeah, pretty much.
Bloomberg’s anti-gun website is up and running. This should be entertaining. They’ve taken a lesson from other anti-gun sites and do not allow comments.
Yup, you read that right:
Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
