…Veterans are being discriminated against because of paperwork, among other things.
What a failure.

…as in mock the moron Senator De Leon, aka Senator McGunControl.

This guy is such a clueless liberal asshat that he should be fired for stupidity alone.

…very well stated.

…was a blast!

My brother came home from Afghanistan on the 11th of October.
We hit the desert two weeks after he gets back for a Shootfest!

This is the second one that I’ve done and it was even better than the first just by the volume of guns that we had out there.

We had a couple friends come out too, which is why there are so many guns.
One guy was responsible for just under half you see on the table. There are more guns, pistols were generally on hips.

What a treat this was!

Here’s the spread:

The weapons ranged from over 100 years old to modern day.
Here’s a couple more pics:

And yes, it is a .308 Lapua. This this is a tack driver.

Sweet doesn’t even come close. Hell of a rifle.

Another angle on the table.

It was definitely a fun day and a great way to welcome my brother home.

Welcome home Bro!

 

…says Interpol Secretary General.

Whaaaat? Say it ain’t so! Citizens protecting themselves with firearms?
Oh the humanity!

The blood baths! Oh, wait, there hasn’t really been any blood baths in places that allow their citizens to protect themselves. Who’d have thunk it.

Giving people the ability to DEFEND themselves IS a CIVIL RIGHT!

Being able to shoot back at assholes that are hell bent on murder and mayhem should be a no-brainer.

Armed Citizens May Be the Solution to Terrorism, Says Interpol Secretary General

By JD Tuccille

What do you do when terrorists turn from attacking well-protected government buildings and transportation centers in favor of anyplace that people may congregate? Specifically, how do you address bloody scenarios like the assault on the Westgate mall in Nairobi, Kenya by the Islamist group al-Shabaab, which killed at least 61 civilians? Well, the Secretary General of Interpol, the international police-coordination organization, says you either start providing “extraordinary security” perimeters around anything that might be a target, or else let people carry the means to defend themselves. Surprisingly, he seems to lean toward empowering individuals to take responsibility for their own defense.

In an interview with ABC News, Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said:

“Societies have to think about how they’re going to approach the problem,” Noble said. “One is to say we want an armed citizenry; you can see the reason for that. Another is to say the enclaves are so secure that in order to get into the soft target you’re going to have to pass through extraordinary security.”

…and debunking the liberal moron politician that doesn’t know shit about guns, or American history.
Share this with your friends. Hell, share it with your enemies too.

…since the People’s Republic of Kalifornia legislature is filled with a bunch of morons that think this is a good idea, here’s an expert in the field telling you like it is.

I hate this state.

Why Microstamping and Bullet Serialization Won’t Work

A firearm examiner dispels the myths of these common gun-ban schemes being pushed in states throughout the nation.
by C. Rodney James, Ph.D.

As an independent firearm examiner, the fact that I am paid by prosecution, defense or an individual makes no difference. I work for science. My job is to find out what happened. As one who works with law enforcement, I want the bad guys punished. I also want to see the innocent freed and the law-abiding citizen unmolested by government. As a taxpayer, I want my taxes spent wisely.

Working for a government subcontractor, I personally watched millions of dollars frittered away through bureaucratic ineptitude, always with the best of “stated” intentions. Living through this made a lasting impression. With the proposed schemes of microstamping and ammunition coding, I see a plan to destroy the American ammunition industry while invigorating crime from the organized level down to the street thug.

With microstamping and bullet serialization, we face the latest schemes to evolve from what has previously been referred to as “Ballistic Fingerprinting.” This idea was to create a databank of images of the rifling striae, or marks, on fired test bullets as well as breech face signatures impressions and firing-pin impressions on a fired cartridge case for all new semi-auto handguns—and possibly all new guns—sold in the United States. The idea would be to include these images for comparison with crime-scene ammunition evidence entered into the current computer system using the Integrated Ballistic Identification System IBIS, which is the actual hardware and software system used under the National Integrated Ballistic Identification Network NIBIN.

With IBIS/NIBIN as it now stands, the computers do a rough comparison of bullet and breech-face characteristics with those in the crime-evidence database and select images within the general “class characteristic” range, leaving the firearm examiner to look for a potential match of individual characteristics. If there is a probable match, the actual fired evidence is requested for a microscopic comparison to a suspected crime firearm.

Excellent article on the Trayvon Martin case.

Trayvon Martin’s Final Hour

By Jack Cashill

On the rainy night of February 26, 2012, neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman shot and killed an unarmed seventeen-year-old named Trayvon Martin. Three months later, a regular at the Conservative Treehouse blog known as Diwataman discovered the raw video of Martin’s visit to the 7-11 that fateful night and initiated arguably the best bit of blogging detective work since the busting of Dan Rather’s Air National Guard scam eight years earlier.

“I think Trayvon may know these three guys,” Diwataman commented in reference to a trio of hooded young men who entered the store almost immediately after Martin left. For a variety of good reasons, Diwataman labeled the guys “the three stooges,” and the name stuck. What Diwataman discovered quickly is that the blogger “noneyobusiness” had already come to the same conclusion. Together, they and other “Treepers” from the Treehouse — “People help each other out,” says Diwataman — reconstructed Martin’s final hour in a way that was wildly at odds with the scenario advanced by the major media but much closer to the truth. In all versions, the iconic bag of Skittles is at the heart of the story.

On March 7, 2012, in the first national news story on the case, Reuters led with the Skittles angle: “Trayvon Martin was shot dead after he took a break from watching NBA All-Star game television coverage to walk 10 minutes to a convenience store to buy snacks including Skittles candy requested by his 13-year-old brother, Chad.” Reuters attributed this information to Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump. “What do the police find in his pocket? Skittles,” Crump told Reuters. “A can of Arizona ice tea in his jacket pocket and Skittles in his front pocket for his brother Chad.”

‘Guns across the Border’ tells inside story of Operation Wide Receiver CI

‘Guns across the Border’ tells inside story of Operation Wide Receiver CI“Operation Wide Receiver,” a precursor to “Operation Fast and Furious” wherein U.S. guns were bought by straw purchasers and “walked” under the noses of ATF investigators into Mexico, has been the subject of numerous Gun Rights Examiner reports. The central figure in those reports was Mike Detty, a gun writer, a firearms dealer, and the confidential informant who literally risked his life over the course of years to do what he believed was right, only to find the obvious criminals weren’t the only ones he couldn’t trust.

Detty has written about his role in a book that’s so new it doesn’t even officially release until next Wednesday. “Guns across the Border: How and Why the U.S. Government Smuggled Guns into Mexico” tells his story in an easy to read narrative that’s nonetheless engaging from the outset, and that held me throughout.
