Idiocy

by New Jovian Thunderbolt in New Jovian Thunderbolt at 03:30, Thursday, 21 June

Another idiot gun control law designed to make it harder to be involved with firearms in any way in California.

Start regulating gun parts.

Obviously an attack on the gun culture to make it easier later to muster the support to ban guns because fewer people will thusly be around to defend firearm keeping and bearing.

How does this even work?

I guess like Magazine bans work now.  MidwayUSA won't ship me an 11 round magazine to my house in Maryland because the state says so and MidwayUSA doesn't want to get cross threaded with Maryland.  And I understand that position, and all other vendors. 

I guess they won't be sending Timney Triggers to Sacremento or La Jolla is this new law passes over there.

And it's less simple to go to Nevada or Arizona to get a new 1911 sear than it is for me to head off to Pennsylvania or Virginia. 

But the banners are playing the long game.  They hope to get to PA and VA, too.  Some day. 

We gotta defeat these monsters.&nbs...

Last month I discussed some of the reasons why your place of worship should consider having a church security team. You can read that article here. In the time since that article was written, there have been several more news stories about churches that have been impacted by violence. One such story happened at The House of Refuge Church in Kansas City on May 21, where a greeter was wounded by gunfire during a church service. The shooter entered the church and fired multiple times, striking the greeter in the head. The greeter then fell through a window into the sanctuary. He was treated at a hospital for what, thankfully, have been described as non-life-threatening injuries.

Risk Assessment

Individuals who are criminally oriented will pick a “soft target” when possible. They will go for a location that is easy versus a challenging one. Obviously they don’t want to meet resistance, so they’ll size up the target ahead of time. The church security team’s job is to make their church a “hard target,” meaning one that makes criminals less likely to pick that church.

I fear that heat buildup may be shortening their life so I bought a USB powered fan which far exceeds my expectations.

The spider and diagonal holder I bought was inexpensive, and for good reason.  It was supposed to be for a 4.5" OD tube.  It was closer to 5", because one of the legs was substantially longer than the other two.  The diagonal holder was made of some unrecognized black plastic, likely nylon.  Its design was essentially identical to my aluminum diagonal.  I could probably have modified to meet my needs, but much of that time and frustration can be used to finish machining my design which is quite similar, although easier to make.  Why pay for sloppy work?

Medaite reports on ABC's breaking news that Trump associate Manafort has pled guilty to 5 counts of manslaughter.  ABC probably should plead guilty to five counts of truth murder daily.  CNN needs a life sentence.

So, the question that I keep asking Californians is, "Why do you stay and feed your taxes to the Beast?  This is a great time to take your $500,000 equity in your 3 bedroom, 2 bath house and move somewhere like Idaho where you can buy a very big house for that money and live on the return of the rest."

Recently received the following email, with exciting news…

Hello and good day.

My name is Edward, and I am contacting you for partnership by
reason of the significance of your Nationality, which concerns
claim/transfer of Approximately 21 Million US D0llars ia a fixed
deposit account left by a deceased Boss and Friend for onward
sharing between you and I in a ratio to be agreed.

Kindly get back to me as soon as you receive this email for
complete details as time is of the essence giving that we have
less than 2 month period to achieve this.

Regards

Edward.

Can’t wait! So jazzed. I understand there will be some small enabling fees, but after that nothing can possibly go wrong.

Seriously, I understand people actually fall for this shit. They also say you can’t con an honest man…

Small Person and the IIncredibles.

by mzmadmike in The Sacred Cow Slaughterhouse at 19:12, Wednesday, 20 June

Today we took Small Person to her first real theater movie.  Separate vehicles due to schedule.  There was a lengthy line for popcorn, meaning 5 people, and verrrrrrry sllllloooow servers.
 
As we went down the corridor, she saw all the lit up promo signs and I think she knew it was a theater. We went into the IMAX and she got very excited, sat still, started munching a tub of popcorn half her size, and watched the trailers.
 
There's a short film before the main feature, and it was a very dark, touching film about parenting. I was surprised that Small Person, a week into age 4, grasped it and was sobbing. She is amazingly empathetic.
 
IIncredibles II was a hit. It goes right into the action, keeps a good pace, and was on the whole spectacular until near the end, where the characters are stupid about what they obviously need to do until right at the right moment.  A non-spoiler comparison is a character who needs a gun, clobbers the bad guy, and leaves his gun behind, until they find the "right" gun two scenes later. As right as everything else was, this was spoilingly BAD.
 
All the chara...

Photos of Illegal Alien Detention Centers from 2014

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 20:03, Wednesday, 20 June

Remind me, who was in the White House in 2014? Here Are The Photos Of Obama’s Illegal Immigrant Detention Facilities The Media Won’t Show You

I have tried to stay away from this topic, because like so much else, the discussion is insane.

Photos of border detention facilities from the Obama-era, taken during 2014, look nearly identical to the ones taken during the Trump era.

You never see them, however. Here they are, taken in 2014 during a media tour of Obama-era detention facilities in Brownsville, Texas, and Nogales, Arizona.

We don’t see the stories from the Obama administration, because the current kerfuffle is the answer to “What do we do, now that the Russia probe is imploding?” Which is a stupid question on its own.

Just click thru for the photos.

Blogger strikes again

by The Freeholder in The Freeholder at 17:46, Wednesday, 20 June

Yes, I know, I really ought to get off Blogger. I'm guilty of taking the path of least resistance here, but I suppose I'm going to have to give it more consideration, and sooner rather than later. Because this place just keeps getting better and better. Every. Time. I. Turn. Around.

Normally, Blogger will send me an email when I have a comment awaiting moderation. At some point, something fritzed, and by sheer accident I just found 7 comments, some over 30 days old, awaiting moderation. Merde.

They're all now moderated and posted. On behalf of the Google behemoth, you have a sincere "We don't care, we don't have to; you're the product and we give you this crap for free, so what do you want?" On my part, sorry about that.

As for me, I'm going to see if a setting got untwiddled. If that isn't it, I'll simply have to remember to look every couple of days for comments.

What caliber for grizzly?

by SayUncle in SayUncle at 13:59, Wednesday, 20 June

9mm, apparently. Scroll down.

It growled and started wildly thrashing around, still basically on the feet of my clients. My next shot hit it in the shoulder and it began twisting and biting at the hits and I continued firing as fast as I could see vitals. Five shots later it turned into the brush and I hit it again and it twisted and fell 20 feet from us!

Shot placement and lots of them.

AR-15 Sales

Bloomberg: Why Gunmakers Would Rather Sell AR-15s Than Handguns

I found this particularly interesting:

For every 100 newly manufactured guns sold in America, according to industry estimates, as many as 35 are modern sporting rifles that are variants of the AR-15. But that portion of the market accounts for a disproportionate amount of gun-industry profits.

Rough-In

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 13:16, Wednesday, 20 June

Sometimes projects take a lot of time in planning and you really don't see it come together for a while.  Such is this bathroom/outdoor kitchen project I'm working on.  For the past two days, I've been doing a lot of prep and planning, going through the plans step-by-step to make sure I didn't forget anything.

Today, we made progress, although it's hard to see .  We did a lot of carpentry and started roughing in both water and sewerage.  It's all kinds of work that has to be done before you can do the things that really show.

We added the final stud wall, got the toilet set up and did the carpentry that is necessary for the toilet installation.  Tomorrow, I'm going to rough-in the fresh water plumbing, and make lists of what I need for the electrical installation.

Whether you learned about Philip Zimbardo’s famous “Stanford Prison Experiment” in an introductory psych class or just absorbed it from the cultural ether, you’ve probably heard the basic story.
Zimbardo, a young Stanford psychology professor, built a mock jail in the basement of Jordan Hall and stocked it with nine “prisoners,” and nine “guards,” all male, college-age respondents to a newspaper ad who were assigned their roles at random and paid a generous daily wage to participate. The senior prison “staff” consisted of Zimbardo himself and a handful of his students.......

The number of Americans seeking Social Security disability benefits is plunging, a startling reversal of a decades-old trend that threatened the program’s solvency. It is the latest evidence of a stronger economy pulling people back into the job market or preventing workers from being sidelined in the first place.
The drop is so significant that the agency has revised its estimates of how long the program will continue to be financially secure. This month, the government announced that the program would not run out of money until 2032, four years later than its previous estimate last year. Two years ago, the government had warned that the funds might be depleted by 2023.

Wikipedia:

Bombings increased significantly in 2015, with Swedish police investigating around 100-150 explosions. There were over 30 explosions reported in the Swedish city of Malmö alone by August 2015, up from a total of 25 in all of 2014. Malmö police have consequently warned about undetonated grenades in the city. According to Swedish police, the use of hand grenades in crime is unprecedented in all comparable European and non-European countries, and the only countries with similar characteristics are those with warlike conditions.

The Dominican Republic Gets Mausers, 50 Years Too Late

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 06:01, Wednesday, 20 June

This Dominican Mauser is coming up for sale here.

The Dominican Republic is one of the few Central and South American nations which did not buy Mauser rifles when they were the top of the line military armament available. Instead, the Dominicans waiting until the 1950s, and bought surplus long and short Mauser rifles from Brazil. Using their newly built arms factory in San Cristobol, they refurbished these Brazilian Mausers by scrubbing them of all markings, giving them a heavy new dark finish (including the receivers, which were originally in the white), varnishing the stocks, and remarking them as Dominican Republic property. Some were also rebarreled to .30-06 from the original 7x57mm, but apparently only a minority of them. Some of these were subsequently used, and some just went right into storage until ultimately sold as surplus and brought into the US.

This might possibly be the most inane thing I've read online all week, if not all year. In a Letter to the Editor in our local bird cage liner, entitled "Police need more clearly defined rules of engagement"...

All police departments should have very clearly defined rules of engagement, with an emphasis on the use of non-lethal devices, i.e., Tasers and rubber bullets, before guns are discharged. And they should all have their body cameras turned on.

Perhaps you remember a time when the police always fired a shot in the air and shouted “Stop! Police!” before they shot at someone. What has happened to this idea? I haven’t heard it mentioned for years, nor have I seen it used in any of the videos showing police shootings.

Is “protect and serve” still in effect as police forces become more militarized?

Armed Self-defense Stops Arson

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 07:00, Wednesday, 20 June

...

And surprise, surprise. He remains a violent criminal. Revealed: Gunman who opened fire on festival-goers before cops shot him dead was a gang member on early release from prison having been convicted of MURDER

A shooting in Trenton that left 22 injured on Sunday may have been prevented if one of the suspects wasn’t granted an early prison release for murder, and an additional sentence for racketeering during his incarceration.

In 2004 he was sentenced to 18 years for his role in a murder. (He was 17 in 2004.) He got an extra 6 years for racketeering while in prison, related to gang activity. But he was reformed (or something) and so was on the street.

But what we need are more gun laws, to make it even more illegal for a felon to possess a weapon or attempt mass murder. Or that’s what New Jersey’s governor thinks.

Because keeping violent criminals in prison would be socially unjust. Or something.

  2. DeLisle style new made bolt action rifle, left handed. .45
  3. S&W M&P
  4. .22TCM/9mm single stack Armscor 1911
  5. CMP vintage Colt 1911. 
  6. Hudson H9
Well the first two have a long long lead time.  And a CMP vintage gun...  Not feeling it right now.   Same with the Armscor .22TCM.

That leaves an M&P or H9.  I'll see where my mood lies when I get to the gon sto.  H9s should be gettable in Maryland by now.

It's been so long!

2018 Practice Session #15

by Greg Ellifritz in Active Response Training at 03:49, Wednesday, 20 June

My friend Claude Werner recently wrote an article where he postulated most shooters don’t do any real structured practice with their firearms.  They plink or play, but they generally don’t perform drills designed with realistic standards in order to improve performance.  In the article, Claude talked about sharing details and photos of his practice routines to give novice shooters an idea about how they might better spend their practice time.

 

I think that is a wonderful idea.  I plan on sharing the drills I shoot in my weekly practice sessions.  Hopefully, you will get a little value out of my posts and come up with some new drills to make your own practice sessions more effective.

There isn’t really a standard recipe for the ideal Syren ProStaffer, but these 3 ladies have what it takes to promote the Syren brand of shotguns.  Some of the things they have in common are a great attitude, big welcoming smiles to everyone they meet, a love of our guns and shotgun shooting!  As we keep moving forward, we are adding ambassadors geographically and with Victoria Powell down in Georgia, Jennie Kate Conley in Tennessee and Dorothea Clevenger in Pennsylvania, we are spreading the Syren message far and wide.

Who is in charge?

by tpolnathan in The Price of Liberty at 05:00, Wednesday, 20 June

By Nathan Barton

Bear with me: this is going to start on a religious note, but we’ll soon get to the political and societal side of things.

More and more, as I study the Bible and religious matters, by myself and with others, I ask myself and others a very simple question.  “Who is in charge?”

Simple, but important.  Both in religion and in society and politics. Whether discussing matters with a “Christian” or a Muslim or a Jew, LDS or Christian Scientist or Jehovah’s Witness, or Jainist or even Zoroastrian, many questions and issues boil down to that.  If you believe in God, and you believe the holy books of those groupings of religions (none of which is monolithic), you believe in a Creator, and the question is both critical and simple.  The being which makes something is in control of what it (He) makes.

Almost all religions claim that they believe God (or gods) is in charge.  But do things actually work that way?  Who is actually, practically, in charge?  The prophet? The pontiff? The denominational officers?  The pastor? The women’s aid society? Who claims to speak for God?  W...

How wonderfully hypocritical

by tpolnathan in The Price of Liberty at 22:59, Tuesday, 19 June

By Nathan Barton

Ari Armstong, a libertarian Republican in Colorado, just published his latest Colorado Freedom Report, discussing the response of the Colorado congressional delegation to the hot political fad of the month, trashing the Donald for the policy of separating parents and children when they jump the border.

He makes many excellent points, and the topic deserves more comment.

I really appreciate the sort of research and report Ari did, on the delegation’s responses. As I told him, it is heartening to see that they ARE responding, mostly appropriately.  Even Senator Ken Buck’s response is better than I would have thought, seeing how he’s such a big law-&-order type. (He is a GOP type from Weld County.)

But as I told Ari, and others, it is too bad that they didn’t do anything about this sort of abuse back in 2014.  I guess the guy squatting in the White House then was given a pass. (I don’t suppose it had anything to do with his Tranzi cred...

Kim

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 16:54, Tuesday, 19 June

Greatest bartender in the world, she worked at the Fiddler's Green, the junior officer bar at Knox.  Kim was a slight, Korean woman.  She always wore tasteful clothing, and her bartender skills were legendary.  She know what everyone in the room was drinking.  And, trust me, Cavalry and Armor officers are exuberant drinkers.  Three hundred fools in her bar, and she knew what ever one of them was drinking.

One night in 81 I came in after three days in the field, teaching Guard soldiers tank gunnery..  I was parched, I was tired, and Kim was ready to serve.  Normally, I drank bourbon, but i told her I was ready to switch horses.  I wanted something different.  And I was hungry.

Kim looked at me with her inscrutable Asian eyes.  "You wanna vodka tonic, and a Ruben sandwich".  It wasn't a question, it was a statement of fact.

I trusted Kim.  She had been taking care of junior officers for many years.  "Okay", I told her.  "Vodka tonic and a Ruben sandwich."

I came back to Knox in '86 for the career course.  When I walked  into the bar, Kim looked at me, her eyes n...

Home invasions

I don't want to belabor this subject too much; I know we've gone over it before. However, this one happened in a nearby small city, so it has perked up my situational awareness antennae just a tad.

High Point man charged with attempted murder in connection with home invasion

The fact that there was a home invasion in that particular small city doesn't surprise me; the place has been know for violence since before World War II. My Dad was stationed for a short time in another nearby city and they weren't allowed to go there as it was "off limits". The common name for the place? "Little Chicago".

Here's the part that I want to draw your attention to, good and hard:

"Witnesses told police that five armed men forced their way into the home and began shooting."

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today warned sponsors of anti-gun Initiative 1639 via a demand letter that their campaign “is utilizing unreadable petitions in violation” of state law, and demanded that this be corrected to “conform to the legal requirements.”
Olympia attorney Shawn Newman, writing on behalf of the two Bellevue-based organizations, noted, “The petitions for I-1639 have the proposed measure printed on the back of the sheets in such fine print as to be unreadable… Use of fine print is unconscionable.”
State law mandates that initiative petitions “have a readable, full, true, and correct copy of the proposed measure printed on the reverse side of the petition,” Newman’s letter warns.

Facebook and Google seem very powerful, but they live about a week from total ruin all the time. They know the cost of leaving social networks individually is high, but en masse, becomes next to nothing. Windows could be replaced with something better written. The US government would fall to a general revolt in a matter of days. It wouldn’t take a total defection or a general revolt to change everything, because corporations and governments would rather bend to demands than die. These entities do everything they can get away with — but we’ve forgotten that we’re the ones that are letting them get away with things.

Villisca, Ia. (1912)
Jun. 9, 1912, Joseph Moore, his wife Sarah, their four children and two visiting children were murdered “by a fiend who crushed their skulls with an ax.”  An “itinerant minister” was charged.  The Iowa Attorney-General “sought to commit” the minister “to an insane asylum, a step which would bar the prosecution of any other person suspected of the crime.”  Relatives of the victims claimed that the wrong person was being tried; in response, the Iowa legislature passed a law prohibiting public discussion of the crime, leading to an “injunction against J.N. Wilkerson, a detective, whose four years’ investigation of the murders cast suspicion on a prominent state senator.”  The public meeting by Villisca residents took place in Omaha, Neb., instead.

If it seems like I haven’t been around much except for spacefiller posts it’s because I’ve been dealing with bad things.

But all in all he seemed to have a happy life.

The young rebellious Sontag.

Nicholas Frankovich notes that youthful rebellion against stodgy, inhibiting norms and standards is great fun, until you find the fences are all down, the norms and standards have disappeared, in politics as in the arts.

Susan Sontag established herself as a public intellectual through original and incisive essays in which she exalted avant-garde over high culture in the 1960s. Late in her career, in the 1990s, she began to have second thoughts. “It never occurred to me that all the stuff I had cherished, and all the people I had cared about in my university education, could be dethroned,” she explained to Joan Acocella of The New Yorker. She had assumed that “all that would happen is that you would set up an annex — you know, a playhouse — in which you could study these naughty new people, who challenged things.”

CZ Makes a 45 for the Americans: the CZ-97B

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 06:27, Tuesday, 19 June

This pistol is up for auction at RIA on June 23.

Introduced in 1997, the CZ-97B is a .45ACP caliber addition to CZ’s line of globally popular handguns. However, the 97 has some substantial mechanical differences from the CZ-75 line. Most significantly, it locks on the front of the chamber and the ejection port instead of having locking lugs cut into the top of the barrel and underside of the slide. It also has a threaded and removable barrel bushing, unlike the 75s. This is an early 1998 production example, with wooden grips, no front slide serrations, and a solid front sight (newer examples have thinner aluminum grips, front serrations, and a fiber optic front sight).
The CZ97 has never been particular hot or popular, in large part I suspect because of its overall size coupled with a 10-round magazine. During the AWB when it was introduced in the US (and I’m sure the US is a prima...

So, to set the stage, it's important to understand the toilet tissue arrangements at Roseholme Cottage. We use only the best: Charmin Sensitive, the Cadillac of bumwipe. This is stored in an under-counter cabinet down at the far end of the galley kitchen.

If someone is fetching a replacement roll from there and notices we are down to three or four rolls left, they push the appropriate Amazon Dash Button, and a fresh case is summoned to the front doorstep in two days' time. Three, tops.

Anyway, yesterday morning, Bobbi had done her morning puttering-about and headed out the door to physical therapy. I was home alone when my morning coffee had its salutary effect on my still-sleepy digestive tract.

I got up and ambled into the bathroom, only to be greeted by a toilet paper roll with maybe three squares on it.

Not being Sheryl Crow, I ambled with rather more urgency toward the aforementioned kitchen cabinet, only to realize with dawning horror that it was empty.

By this point, my innards were starting to get a little insistent.

Fortunately, there was the latest shipment of toilet paper, still sitting in its case lot box...

It's a trick question, of course - a Trillion dollar "War on Drugs" has led to illegal narcotics for sale on every street corner and an epidemic of overdose deaths.  But let's do a thought experiment here.  The left loves their fantasies of rounding up all the guns, so just how long would that take?

A few months back I ran the numbers and the answer is 3 years.  And that was with all sorts of assumptions about how gun owners would just chill out the whole time.  Whatevez, bro.

Eric Raymond comments on a new article that made the same calculation, and came up with a pretty similar number to what I derived (hey, the numbers are the numbers).  But he did some calculation on the expected rate of violent resistance.  The numbers are pretty stark:

There’s a different way to slice these numbers. Applying...

“Poor people own guns. The elite have bodyguards.”  So opines Daniel Greenfield at FrontPage Magazine.

Feelings about gun-control range widely on both […]

How about 'Yes'?
Item: The report “did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative decisions we reviewed.” Ha, ha, ha.

As Andrew Klavan observed, that is simply inspector-generalese for, “No one confessed or left a paper trail.”

No, Kimberly Strassel was right in her recent column for the Wall Street Journal: the IG report is dripping with evidence of political bias. It’s just that it deploys the evidence like a troupe of players on the stage and then tells you that the burglary you just saw enacted might have been the innocent parson out for a stroll.
And the longer the clowns keep claiming "Oh, the Bureau is just great!  No real problems!" and so forth, the worse it'll be.

Cops and EMS Workers Behaving Badly

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 06:00, Tuesday, 19 June

Because people who are handcuffed and/or strapped to a gurney need to be sedated. Or something. At urging of Minneapolis police, Hennepin EMS workers subdued dozens with a powerful sedative. Welcome to the police state, where the cops can have you drugged for no reason.

This is only one incident in which the use of a sedative is very questionable. Where the result was that the person drugged stopped breathing.

In a separate case detailed in the report, police sprayed an intoxicated woman in downtown Minneapolis with mace, and she appeared to have an asthma attack. The woman, who was not actively resisting police, asked for an asthma pump. Instead they handcuffed her to a stretcher and gave her ketamine, the report said.

Shortly before the body camera video cut out, an EMS worker asked, “What does ketamine do to asthmatics?”

In this case, it stopped the woman’s breathing, according to the report. She was resuscitated later at the hospital.

Because apparently asking for medical assistance – in ...

In my younger years, I couldn’t wait for winter’s arrival. The first big snowfall meant making snow forts, sledding, or even hitting the ski slopes.

Either way, it’s a pain, literally!

Someone recently stumbled upon a way to estimate firearms ownership in America; a method which I don’t recall seeing used in any published research.

Real estate listings.

It seems a great many online real estate listings with interior photographs show numerous firearms, racks, hunting trophies, reloading equipment, and other direct and indirect indicators of firearms possession, presumably lawful since listers are comfortable with posting the images publicly.

This was a narrow sample of America: single-family dwellings in rural portions of a specific state. But examining a wider selection might be fruitful.

Some advantages of using real estate listings for such an estimate include:

  • Listings can show geographic distribution down to the neighborhood (but it might too cumbersome to go below the county level).
  • Other studies have associated geographic location with political leanings; this could cross-referenced to suggest a firearms ownership/politics correlation which is usually assumed.
  • Likewise could a demographic (race, ethnicity, etc.) be more accurately established.
  • Asking/sale prices may be a pro...

Police say a group of individuals began following a couple through a Kroger grocery store in metro Atlanta Friday afternoon, according to Fox 5. Police say when the group followed the couple outside hoping to either rob or carjack them, the parking lot turned into a battlefield.

What gang’s colors does the governor wear?

by Carl Bussjaeger in The Zelman Partisans at 16:05, Monday, 18 June

About that Trenton, NJ art festival shooting…

Right off the bat, I assumed it was gang related. And that’s just what the cops are saying.

I figured the shooter(s) would be prohibited persons already. And, at least, the dead one was; felony manslaughter, shot a guy to death.

And I assumed guns would blamed. Yep.

So Gov. Murphy thinks criminals sentences are too long. The dead asshole had been sentenceed to 18 years on the manslaughter charge. He picked up an additional 6 years for helping run a gang inside the prison. 2004 (year sentenced) + 18 + 6 = 2028.

Under ol’ Murph’s new policies, the scumbag got an early release in February of this year. Whereupon he apparently went right out and got another gun, somehow bypassing as those New Jersey laws that apply to the honest, non-criminal folks.

Seems Murph also defunded a post-release employment assistance program that supposedly helped reduce the recidivsm rate. Murph apparently thinks a life of crime is dandy.

Now, Jersey alr...

From CBS News:

"The footage shows Mexican congressional candidate Fernando Puron posing for a selfie with a supporter after a campaign debate last Friday, when a man walks up from behind, raises a gun and fires at the back of his head.

Puron was running on an anti-cartel platform which made him a target in Piedras Negras, which borders Texas.

He is now one of 113 candidates and politicians who have been murdered in Mexico just since last September, when the election cycle started. Fifty relatives have also been killed and 132 politicians, mostly at the local level, have been threatened."

Admittedly,  diamonds in sewage most of the time.  I do not remember the article, but it was about "sex" vs. "gender" with one idiot claiming Victorians created the word "gender" so they could discuss what sex they were without using the naughty word "sex."  A few comments on, someone complained about the tired conversation about pronouns.  Someone else claimed that somewhere on the Internet there were videos of pronouns having sex.

I’m not surprised at the lack of them, to be honest, for a couple of reasons…

a) If I were ever forced into that situation and could possibly fade away without my involvement becoming known I would do so, and so I expect would any sensible person. Too many people would want my head, probably including every responding cop.

b) On occasions when it does happen and the “civilian” gun owner is known to the cops and the press, the impulse of most “news” outlets would be to kill the story. After all, we’re very authoritatively told about the “good guy with a gun” scenario, “This has never happened. Data shows it doesn’t happen.” And those who control the “data” would like to keep it that way*. Look what happened with the mass shooting in that Texas church last year. For some reason ...

About Parole Conditions

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 14:36, Monday, 18 June

Speaking about the goblin in Trenton, Daave says:

And the room temperature bad guy had been paroled even though he had committed, and been convicted of, a separate felony while in prison.
Speaking as a 20-year parole officer, it's hard to know the thinking of a parole board.  They are often motivated by things that we on the street don't consider.  But, on every parole certificate I've ever seen, there is a prohibition on firearms.

In Louisiana, for example, the parole conditions say in part:
5. I shall not have in my possession or control any firearms or dangerous weapons.
Over the course of my career, I arrested a lot of goblins for firearms possession.  I'd arrest immediately on a violation of parole, then refer the offense to the District Attorney to see if he wanted to press new charges for Poss Firearm by Convicted Felon.

The parolee would always be sent back on my violation, but I never once had a DA file new charg...

Time to Light up the Switchboards

Gun control on the move in Pennsylvania. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Bloomberg is going to be relentless, and given how squishy Republicans in this state have been getting, I would not count on anything. Give your lawmaker a ringy dingy or drop him a line somehow to let him or her know you oppose gun control, and these bills specifically.

NRA makes it easy. If you don’t have time, hit their “Take Action” link. But personal contact is always more effective.

And as to the solution to the problem you think you see: That has to be social and cultural, just as it was with the “problem” of liquor leading up to and during Prohibition, and as it is for marijuana and other recreational and potentially pharmaceutical drugs.

Which, as you might recall, also became “epidemics” because ignorant idiots insisted they knew the answers, until experts finally talked some sense into them.

Now please be quiet, the adults are talking.

New Jersey To Gun Owners: Hand Over Those Magazines Or We Could Throw You In Jail

The law, signed by Gov. Phil Murphy on Wednesday along with five other new gun laws, gives New Jersey gun owners who currently possess ammunition magazines exactly 180 days to either surrender their ammunition magazines, permanently modify them to only accept up to 10 rounds, or transfer them to somebody who is allowed to legally own it such as those living in most other parts of the United States.

If someone in New Jersey is caught with a magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds after the deadline is passed, it will be considered a crime of the fourth degree which carries up to 18 months in prison and up to $10,000 in fines or both.

“Those things? Yeah, I had some but I sent’em all to my cousin in, um, Kansas. Yeah. That’s the ticket.”

Shooting in Trenton

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 07:00, Monday, 18 June

It seems that over the weekend, there was a mass shooting in Trenton, NJ.  You probably won't hear about it from the mainstream media.  It doesn't fit the narrative.

It seems that there was an art and music festival, and some gang-bangers had a beef with each other.  The main shooter (who is now room temperature) was a parolee, who had spent time in prison for murder.  The police knew that trouble was brewing, and was trying to close the event when the shooting started.

One dead, 22 injured.

This wasn't some deranged white guy with a rifle, this was gang violence with handguns.  It is probably the most common violence (except maybe domestic violence) that large cities have to deal with.  Bad guys with guns show up at a place where people gather to celebrate.

One dead, 22 injured, but don't expect to see politicians lining up to do interviews.  Don't expect to see high-school kids calling for new laws.  Don't expect to see senators holding committee meetings.
It doesn't outrage them, and it certainly isn't news...

Britain Goes From Trainer to Competition: the No 8 Mk I

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 06:27, Monday, 18 June

This rifle is coming up for sale at RIA on June 21.

Initially intended to be used only by the British Army (the Land Service), in 1950 the No8 rifle’s role was expanded to cover all three services. Unlike the other trainers made up to this point, the No8 MkI was designed as a target and competition rifle, instead of a service rifle reduced in caliber. It has a heave barrel, a nice trigger converter to cock on open, and a heavy competition type stock. Adopted in 1948 or 1949 (sources differ), a whopping 76,000 were ordered and manufactured by BSA and Fazackerly – they remained in service until finally declared obsolescent by the British in 2014.

Rivanna IDPA Match

by David in Musings Over a Barrel at 05:37, Monday, 18 June

Too many conflicting commitments and other activities have prevented me from getting to the monthly IDPA matches at Rivanna since last February. This weekend, I was finally able to get there, and despite much time spent on the road lately, I was looking forward to rising early and hitting the match.

Attendance was a bit lighter than usual, just 31 shooters, but that also meant a quick morning of shooting with little down time. We shot the four stages in just over 2 hours.

The first stage had us starting in the middle of a wall, the shooters choice of which direction to go at the buzzer. Groups of two or three targets, along with some non-threats, were found at four shooting positions. Despite the stage walls and cover positions being symmetrical to either side, the target positioning was not. That made stage plan awareness all the more critical. I was relieved to shoot the first "get over the nerves" stage clean with no points down.

The second stage was an "L" shaped course. The init...

Pentax marketed the Q-series digitals the same way. Ironically, the teeny 110 film negatives are the same size as a Micro 4/3 image sensor, which is much larger than the little 1/2.3" sensor chosen for the initial Q models. (The later ...

Damn. Now that's a vicious dog

This stupid.

Moped robbery gangs are throwing off their helmets to escape being chased by police.

Officers are following an ‘unwritten’ health and safety rule that means their career is at risk if they endanger the thugs by pursuing them.

Dozens of officers are already being investigated for their driving during chases.

As a result, Britain faces an epidemic of ‘pavement pirates’ who believe they are untouchable.
"These thieves and thugs might get hurt if you chase them when they have no helmets, so let them go."  Yeah, that's going to work out well.

What If You Called 911 and Nobody Came

Meanwhile in the Socialist Paradise of Venezuela….

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 06:45, Monday, 18 June

The oil industry – the country’s last support – looks to be pushed over the edge. Workers Flee and Thieves Loot Venezuela’s Reeling Oil Giant.

Workers in the oil industry were high-paid, and it was an important support for the government so it got what it needed. But when hyperinflation hits, it doesn’t matter how high your salary is, it will be worthless next month, or the month thereafter. So finally even the oil workers are heading for the exits.

Desperate oil workers and criminals are also stripping the oil company of vital equipment, vehicles, pumps and copper wiring, carrying off whatever they can to make money. The double drain — of people and hardware — is further crippling a company that has been teetering for years yet remains the country’s most important source of income.

The last time I checked, the volume of oil shipped from Venezuela was down substantially and falling. The government wants to increase shipments by 1 million barrels per day, but people are leaving because a months salary won&#...

Harvard Discriminates Against Asian Applicants

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 06:00, Monday, 18 June

Because affirmative action, or something. Harvard and Affirmative Action

Either racial preferences are wrong, or they are not wrong. But it seems that Harvard’s take is that they are only wrong depending on who they hurt or help.

The Journal described what has happened: while alumni interviews tended to give Asian-American applicants the highest aggregate scores, Harvard’s admissions officers “assign Asian-Americans the lowest score of any racial group on the personal rating.” One could easily see if Asian applicants received only the second highest scores that it might simply be an inadvertent disparity. But when alumni interviewers give Asians the highest scores, and the university’s employees give them the lowest, it becomes difficult to believe anything other than someone in the administration has ordered lower scores.

So is Harvard saying that prejudice against Asians is OK? And whatever Harvard is trying to say, are other universities saying the same thing? [Hat tip ...

On The Subject of Calling 911…

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 07:09, Monday, 18 June

This isn’t a case of them not receiving the call, this is just Toronto suffering from a lack of resources. Toronto police response time under fire after Parkdale murder scene left unattended

It was apparently 90 minutes before a car was available to be dispatched. (The call came in as assault in progress.) At 90 minutes the victim had already died.

Calling 911 is fine thing to do, but in this case, even though they believed an assault was in process, there was no one to respond. If you believe that calling 911 is the answer to all of your problems, what are you going to do when there is no one available to respond? I know most large cities, and probably even some smaller cities at times have a lack of resources.

Now the Toronto Police Department is facing cuts, so the cynic in me thinks that some degree of slow-down may be in service to the “Stop the Toronto Police Cuts” campaign. But they may actually have a point too.
