Guided .50 cal bullets

DARPA’s Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) program recently conducted the first successful live-fire tests demonstrating in-flight guidance of .50-caliber bullets. This video shows EXACTO rounds maneuvering in flight to hit targets that are offset from where the sniper rifle is initially aimed:

Idiots

Presuming it’s real, a few morons:

Well, components anyway:

The Islamic State extremist group has taken control of a vast former chemical weapons facility northwest of Baghdad, where remnants of 2,500 degraded chemical rockets filled decades ago with the deadly nerve agent sarin are stored along with other chemical warfare agents, Iraq said in a letter circulated Tuesday at the United Nations.

A civil rights victory

A U.S. Patent & Trademark Officer examiner argued that AAC could not use the Statue of Liberty as part as part of its logo because the examiner was retarded:

Can’t register trademark with Statue of Liberty holding silenced gun because that would be ‘shocking, offensive and disparaging’?

So argued a U.S. Patent & Trademark Officer examiner, in refusing to register the mark. Fortunately — though more than four years after the application was filed, and nearly two years after the initial hearing on appeal — the decision was reversed.

In Chicago

Heh:

Highlighting increasingly dangerous conditions within the city, a new study published Monday by Northwestern University’s Department of Environmental Studies revealed that approximately 75 percent of the air in Chicago is now composed of bullets.

Socialist Democratic Federated Republic of Carbombya

The things you learn on the radio.

Carbombya

Apparently, the original Transformers cartoon featured a place near the middle east, with lots of camels and oil production. The place was called Carbombya. This is, of course, hysterical. And by “hysterical” I mean probably offensive to people with bugs up their asses.

Apparently, the place was offensive enough to Casey Kasem that he quit the show.

I had to share.

How Claiborne Richardson wants to be remembered

Bitter:

When the response by the prosecutor and the cops is to think, “hey, we should haul a 17-year-old boy to a hospital and give him a shot to force an erection so that we can take nudie pictures of him all hot and bothered,” it’s time they need to reconsider their choices in life.

Abysmal.

In MA

I thought they had all the gun control already but apparently they want more:

While H.4278 has been significantly improved in many areas, perhaps the bill’s most egregious provision, which gives issuing authorities discretion to deny firearm identification cards, remains in the current version of the House-passed bill. This discretionary provision has been somewhat limited compared to prior versions to require that the issuing authority can show “reliable and credible information that the applicant or card holder has exhibited or engaged in behavior that suggests the applicant or card holder could potentially create a risk to public safety if issued a card; or (ii) existing factors that suggest that the applicant or card holder could potentially create a risk to public safety if issued a card.”

Correlation

John Lott says that the murder rate drops as carry permits rise:

The study by the Crime Prevention Research Center found that 11.1 million Americans now have permits to carry concealed weapons, up from 4.5 million in 2007. The 146 percent increase has come even as both murder and violent crime rates have dropped by 22 percent.

Here’s a link to the study.

Guns, gangs, and supply and demand

Interesting bit on Chicago’s gang culture:

Another starling fact: in New York and most other big cities the gang members will throw away the guns as they are being chased but, in Chicago, where police confiscated over 3,200 guns during the first half of the year, they shoot back instead. The top cop says that is because “there is a greater sanction for the gang members to lose that firearm from their gang than there is to go to jail.”

In Chicago a gang member will fire back instead of discard his weapon because members face “severe beatings” and financial punishment if they lose their gun. “There are way too many guns. On any given weekend, our police officers take more guns off the streets than either New York or LA. It’s too easy for anybody to get a gun.”

If guns were easy to get, why would there be such penalties for losing one? Sure, there are other reasons they might do that but the first thought to come to mind was that they were hard to replace and, therefore, the risk of it being evidence outweighed that cost. As reader JKB, who emailed it to me, said:

The gang crime in Chicago is so bad they are violating the law of supply and demand. An op/ed in the Chattanoogan has the following quotes from the Chicago police superintendent.

Notice the “It’s too easy for anybody to get a gun”, which seems to indicate a large supply compared to demand. But the gang members shoot it out with the cops rather than throw away the gun because the gangs will exact a high price for the loss of the gun, which seems to indicate that guns are not easy to replace.

It just doesn’t make sense. Once a gun is discharged in the commission of a felony, it is known as evidence. Evidence is something the smart criminal tries not to keep on them. Throwing away guns is the cost of doing crime. Perhaps the Great Recession is hard all over. Guns are plentiful?, but hard for a gang to afford? Maybe private citizens in the gang areas are buying up the supply?

Isn’t there a big economics school in Chicago? Perhaps they should look into this failure of economics?

A. Barton Hinkle, who hopes to some day be The Barton Hinkle, writes: The Misguided Open-Carry Movement

And congrats to Brian Doherty, who managed to get beyond the first few pages of the revisionist anti-gun book called The Second Amendment: A Biography. Says Doherty of the book:

Yet in Waldman’s merely two sentences explaining what was at issue in the case that has defined the modern meaning of the Second Amendment, 2008’s District of Columbia v. Heller (I wrote the biography of that case, Gun Control on Trial), he seems strangely ignorant—or wants his readers to stay strangely ignorant—about exactly what law the case challenged.

I took the book to the shitter once. Once.

Pena v. Lindley Update

The SAF has filed supplemental briefs in the case.

A patent to disable guns within gun free zones

TrackingPoint has apparently filed for one:

TrackingPoint’s chairman John McHale applied for a patent (#20140182179) which describes an invention that can disable the trigger of guns, such as TrackingPoint’s smart rifles, if they are within school zones (1,000 ft. of a school), on the grounds of a federal facility or on the grounds of private business that bans private firearms.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
