Speaking of journalism and guns being boring

The Paper of Making Up The Record has a bit where they poll “experts” and the electorate on what gun controls they would be happy with. Surprising no one, they discovered most people support all the gun control. As to their supposed experts:

Our expert survey asked dozens of social scientists, lawyers and public health officials how effective each of 29 policies would be in reducing firearm homicide deaths, regardless of their political feasibility or cost.

Did you think maybe try a gun or gun law expert? You know, someone who really is an expert in this field?

Interesting new suppressor design

Delta P Design Brevis II Ultra Silencer: It’s one piece and is short and fat. I’m curious about the internals of this thing.

I do wonder how you could clean it.


One problem with journalist and democrat (but I repeat myself) arguments for gun control is that they are boring.

First a twinkie

Now, a pineapple as a suppressor.

Can they make the bullet trail look like a rainbow too?

In what apparently is not a joke, the US Army is asking for biodegradable ammo that has seeds in it to grow plants. I suppose when you’re out there shooting people in the face for a living, it’s good to be environmentally conscious.

The request is for grenades and tank rounds. This may actually be a decent idea but I question their priorities.

Hearing protection act introduced

The American Suppressor Association:

The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is pleased to announce the reintroduction of the Hearing Protection Act (HPA) by Rep. Jeff Duncan (SC-03) and Rep. John Carter (TX-31). This historic piece of legislation, which was originally introduced by Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) in the 114th Congress, will remove suppressors from the purview of the National Firearms Act (NFA), replacing the antiquated federal transfer process with an instantaneous NICS background check. The HPA also includes a provision to refund the $200 transfer tax to applicants who purchase a suppressor after October 22, 2015, which was the original date of introduction.

The hysteria is already starting from the democrats and the press (but I repeat myself).

Sebastian has a post on making the case for the bill. You know, there are rules about the noise level a person can be subjected to while on the job. And this is for the safety of the workers. Suppressors fit the bill for that. And I’d like to see a suppressor only indoor range.

Well, which ones wouldn’t you?

Twinkie as firearm silencer

Would the Twinkie require a tax stamp?

If they are right, why lie?

The Brady Campaign to Make Sweet, Sweet Non-Profit Money said over 200 people were shot the first day of the year. Only, they lied about it.

News you can use

How Not To Get Killed at the Airport.

I’ve mentioned before that I carry some things that can by used as weapons when flying. I like the padlock idea as TSA restrictions no longer allow me to carry certain sizes of hygiene products. Some good suggestions there. I also recommend a few zip ties in case, well, you know, you crack someone upside the head and they needs restrained after.

I have no problem with this

Gun silencers are hard to buy. Donald Trump Jr. and silencer makers want to change that.

And, of course, the other side has to lie and call 22LR “high powered”

The Hudson H9

Hudson Manufacturing has released a new gun with a new design. The concept being to take all the good stuff people like about 1911s (trigger and grip angle) and the good stuff people like about Glocks (everything else) and mashing them together to make one good one. With a low bore access (at first I thought that was a laser or some such):

Price seems a little high for the target market. I’d like to get my hands on one to play with.

California DOJ Inadvertently Discloses Personal Information of Firearm Safety Instructors


Last week, the California Department of Justice (DOJ) Privacy Office began mailing letters like this one to certified Firearm Safety Instructors. The letter states that on October 14, 2016, DOJ inadvertently disclosed the name, date of birth, and California Drivers License and/or Identification Card numbers of potentially every single DOJ certified Firearm Safety Instructor in California to an unknown requestor. DOJ allegedly discovered the breach on October 27well over two months agobut is just now notifying individuals.

Mass shooting at Fort Lauderdale Airport

I don’t comment on these types of things at the onset because everything you hear in the first few hours is almost always wrong.

In what could be a mass shooting designed to prove how dumb gun control laws are, one known wolf, as far as I can tell, did the following:

    Boarded a flight with a gun checked in his baggage. Though initial reports said he had the gun on the plane. I doubted that, otherwise it’d have been more deadly to start popping off on the plane.
    Once he landed, he went to the bathroom and loaded up his gun.
    Then proceeded to shoot people in the head.
    And he went there specifically to carry out the act.

Like most mass shootings, it occurred in a gun free zone. Most airports allow carry in the non-secure area but Florida doesn’t.

The gun used appears to be a Walther PPS. The PPS holds between six and eight rounds. The gun is legal in NY, MA, and other states with arbitrary gun laws because it holds less than some number of runds. It is, however, not legal in California because of legal mumbo jumbo. The guy had to reload at least two times, but probably three.

And he was known to the authorities:

In November 2016, he walked into an FBI office in Anchorage claiming that he was being forced to fight for ISIS and was sent to a psychiatric hospital.

FBI spokesman George Piro confirmed he was evaluated by the FBI while living in Alaska.

He did go to our office in Anchorage, but he did not want to commit harm, the agent said. He voluntarily entered our office and was interviewed by agents of the office. He was turned over to local custody and then taken to a local hospital.

So far Santiago-Ruiz has no known connection to terrorism, with the exception of this photo showing him wearing an Arabic keffiyeh and pointing a finger in the air a symbol ISIL militants for their cause.

So, you can commit a mass shooting with guns oppressive states decide are good guns. And our national security apparatus didn’t keep tabs on a guy known to be a bit off his rocker.

But one more gun law or government program will stop this sort of thing, right?

There ought to be a law

Sheriffs will not enforce NV expanded background checks.

Hopefully not a disappointing direction

But it is the Republicans. Where is Gun Politics Going?

What he meant to say was

James Yeager then: All guns should be Glocks.

James Yeager now: All guns should be polymer-framed and striker-fired and we can just call them Glocks.

But they have all that gun control
