Media Coverage

by New Jovian Thunderbolt in New Jovian Thunderbolt at 03:00, Friday, 16 November

A paper presented to the American Psychological Association found the number of mass killings, rampage killings or “mass shootings”, may be doubled by irresponsible media aggrandizement of mass killers. The desire for fame was found to be one of the main motivators of these rampage killers


Yeah!  So there! Stupid media outlets making things worse.

Wait.

Oh crap!

I'M a media outlet, of a sort.

No, I'm probably fine.  I don't glorify or inflate the infamy of a shooter like other outlets do.  And I 'publish' advocacy to maybe not have Victim Disarmament Zones to give victims a chance and perhaps act as a deterrent to bad actors.  A recommendation irresponsible media outlets don't boost.

FAL Paratrooper 50.63

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 02:00, Friday, 16 November

This rifle is being sold at Rock Island on November 30, 2018.

FN introduced the paratrooper folding-stock version of the FAL rifle in the early 1960s, and it became a very popular addition to their rifle line. Since the recoil spring on the standard pattern FAL runs down the length of the buttstock, fitting a side folding stock required a redesign to the internal parts, moving the recoil spring in front go the bolt, inside the top cover. For this reason, standard and paratrooper lower receivers, top covers, springs, and bolt carriers are not interchangeable. In addition to those changes, FN developed the folding charging handle for these rifles and shortened their barrels to approximately 17 3/8 inches. The standard muzzle brake was used, and the standard handguards and folding bipod also fitted. The rear sight was fixed, with just a single 250m aperture.

It’s nice to see the NRA and SAF working together.

From the Second Amendment Foundation web site:

SAF, NRA FILE FEDERAL LAWSUIT CHALLENGING INITIATIVE 1639

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation and National Rifle Association have filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging gun control Initiative 1639 in Washington State, on several grounds.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. In addition to SAF and NRA, plaintiffs include gun dealers and young adults in the affected age group.

The lawsuit challenges the measure on the grounds that it violates the commerce clause by banning sales of rifles to non-residents, and that it unconstitutionally impairs the rights guaranteed by the First, Second and Fourteenth Amendments, and Article I Section 24 of the Washington State constitution by preventing the sale to otherwise qualified adults under age 21 of certain rifles.

SWATTING

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 18:00, Thursday, 15 November

Swatting is the recent mischief of placing a hoax call to police, telling them that an horrific crime is being committed, and then watching the mayhem from another location.  It's a despicable act, placing both the police and the people at the called-in address in great danger.

As a cop, when you respond to one of these call and "go in hot",  adrenaline pumping, hopefully someone is able to figure out quickly that it was a hoax call and no one gets hurt.    But, sometimes things go horribly wrong.  Like in this case in Witchita KS.
Most of the time, the police respond and figure out that nothing was going on before anyone gets hurt, but it doesn’t always happen that way.
Now, a man responsible for a fatal swatting call has pled guilty to 51 charges stemming from his actions.
Fifty-one charges?  That prosecutor was busy in the books.  I can think of a half-dozen charges I could cite for making a prank call that resulted in a death, but 51?  And as a part of a plea deal, I wond...

Season's Change

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 17:00, Thursday, 15 November

We had the first frost of the season this morning, with temps in the high 20s.  One small now flurry yesterday, which is unheard of in central Louisiana in mid-November.  The season's are changing, and I've even put the liner in my duty jacket, which doesn't normally happen till after Christmas.

One other change, is that I've switched from my summer vodka/tonic to my winter bourbon and coke. Y'all know that I love whiskey, but believe in moderation in all things, except loving a good woman, which should be done enthusiastically.

My to-to, day-in-and-day-out whiskey for mixing with coke (or diet coke, in my case), is either Jim Beam white or Evan Williams, whichever strikes my fancy at the time.  But I buy it in the transmission size.  You know, the big bottle.  When you turn it on its side, it looks like a transmission.

Reloading 357 Magnum On The Lee Classic Turret Press

by Mr. RevolverGuy in Day At The Range at 18:07, Thursday, 15 November

4 Hole Lee Classic Turret Press

Hi all I am Mr.Revolverguy and I am a reload-a-holic. In my previous video you watched me load 6.5 Creedmoor on a single stage press, which is how I do all of my rifle rounds. In this video I use a Lee Classic Turret press to load up some 357 Magnum. Having an affection for revolvers I tend to shoot a bit more of the 357 which requires a press with a little more throughput.

Stay tuned up next is 38 special on a fully progressive press.

Correction

Correction I mention I have had this press for 18 years. I was looking at the wrong receipt; this press I purchased in 2008 so it is 10 years old.

Economics

One of the better qualities is low cost caliber conversions with this press. Those calibers where you want to load a couple hundred rounds with minimal fuss with minimal investment this press is the one for you. A progressive press can add up quickly in a caliber conversion before you add in dies.

My neurologist prescribed klonepin some months back to help the speech and swallowing issues that are side effects of the two strokes in 2015.  (Bihemispheric strokes often impair speech even for those of us lucky enough to be left-handed.) 

I have spent more than a week trying to get the neurologist's office and the pharmacy to coordinate refilling it.  It clearly helps the speech and to a lesser extent, the swallowing problem.  My wife, daughter, and son-in-law all said it helped, but I was not convinced.  Being off it for two weeks had persuaded me they were right.

Anyway, I finally did the long drive to the neurologist to get a paper copy of the prescription since emails and FAX machines were clearly the enemy.  When we reached the office, the prescription had finally reached the pharmacy.  When the receptionist asked what drug, she said not to say the name, but to write it down.  At which point my wife muttered "Gub."

Bumping off… REALITY

by Carl Bussjaeger in The Zelman Partisans at 13:12, Thursday, 15 November

I had occasion to review the status of the coming bump-fire stock rule today.

The basic lie about how bump-fire stocks operate is still there, naturally.

This rule is intended to clarify that the statutory definition of machinegun includes certain devices (i.e., bump-stock-type devices) that, when affixed to a firearm, allow that firearm to fire automatically with a single function of the trigger, such that they are subject to regulation under the National Firearms Act (NFA) and the Gun Control Act (GCA).

But the real fun part is down in “Anticipated Costs and Benefits.”

It is anticipated that the rule will cost $129,222,483 million in the first year (the year with the highest costs).

“$129,222,483 million”

$129,222,483… MILLION.

Kristallnacht 80 years later

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 13:02, Thursday, 15 November

By Nathan Barton

My apologies to readers and friends, that I overlooked the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Pogromnacht of 09 November 1938, just two days shy of 20 years after the end of the Great War, and one of the incidents in Germany leading up to the Second World War.

See the source imageThe Night of the Broken Glass, 09 November 1938.

The shock of this event is remembered to this day.  Back in the 1980s, and still today, streets that had been the scene of vandalism and looting (seen above in an unknown city) were still recognizable, though no longer housing shops owned and operated by Jews, who are virtually nonexistent in Germany today.

What If You Called 911 And No One Answered?

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 15:00, Thursday, 15 November

It is happening more and more around the country, as cities find it hard to hire people for 911 centers. Reaching 911 in Indianapolis can take minutes, not seconds.

A mother calls 911 when her child collapses and starts to have a seizure. She gets a recorded message telling her not to hang up, her call will be answered.

“I just sat on hold waiting for someone to help me,” O’Conner said. “It seemed like an eternity. I was terrified. I thought I was going to lose my daughter.”

She waited 6 minutes for her call to be answered.

A lot of truly bad things can happen in 6 minutes. You should have a plan as to what to do. Whether that is CPR or defend yourself from a violent attack.

Politicians are shocked that people won’t work hard jobs for pittance, just because that’s what the city if offering. (911 dispatchers can earn more in neighboring counties than they can in Indianapolis.)

by Tam in View From The Porch at 11:27, Thursday, 15 November

Currently underway is a 2,000-round test on a Ruger P89. The P-series Rugers had a reputation on the internet (Usenet rec.guns and later gun forums on the web) for being reliable, but those were the days when "flawless reliability" was a pretty nebulous thing.

It will be interesting to see how it runs and compare it to shooting newer test guns. Personally, I vastly preferred the 5906 I ran earlier this year to the P89.

It's worth noting, however, that the MSRP in the 1993 Gun Buyer's Annual for the Ruger was $410, which is a good bit less than the $672 Smith & Wesson wanted for a 5906 with fixed sights. (The blued steel and alloy 5904, perhaps a more direct comparison to ...

The Grand Realignment

by Sebastian in Shall Not Be Questioned at 10:09, Thursday, 15 November

Salena Zito has an article out in the Washington Examiner that’s worth your time. The whole notion that “The Republicans have lost the suburbs” is way overstated. If that were true, the Dems blue wave would have materialized as they expected, rather than being a historically ho-hum midterm performance for the party out of power. But that’s not to say I think the Republicans are playing all the right moves. The Dems are doing a far better job of selling to wealthy suburbanites than the GOP is doing of selling to working class voters. What you’re seeing now is wealthy suburbs shifting hard for Democrats, while working class suburbs that have been traditionally democratic are shifting more slowly.

The GOP will find its home not necessarily just with blue collar workers: there’s whole classes of educated, middle-class voters out there who are working professional jobs, but aren’t rich enough to afford the wild redistributionist schemes of the progressive left. We are...

Okay, lots of fun stuff going on currently.

Book Stuff

The eARC for House of Assassins is available now (see the last blog post for details) and the regular release (hard cover, eBook, and audio) will be in February.  So maybe now people will quit giving Book 1 one star reviews on Amazon because “I’d abandoned the series” (ironically said review was posted while Book 2 was already available for preorder on that very website).

The anthology of sci-fi and fantasy themed noir stories Noir Fatale edited by me and Kacey Ezell was turned in last month, and will be coming out in 2019 also.  I believe in August.

This rule is intended to clarify that the statutory definition of machinegun includes certain devices (i.e., bump-stock-type devices) that, when affixed to a firearm, allow that firearm to fire automatically with a single function of the trigger, such that they are subject to regulation under the National Firearms Act (NFA) and the Gun Control Act (GCA). The rule will amend 27 CFR 447.11, 478.11, and 479.11 to clarify that bump-stock-type devices are machineguns as defined by the NFA and GCA because such devices allow a shooter of a semiautomatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger. Specifically, these devices convert an otherwise semiautomatic firearm into a machinegun by functioning as a self-acting or self-regulating mechanism that harnesses the recoil energy of...

New #NeverTrump Attorneys Group

by JDZ in Never Yet Melted at 09:10, Thursday, 15 November

The Times yesterday applauded the arrival of a new anti-Trump Legal Group founded by conservatives.

[M]ore than a dozen prominent conservative lawyers have joined together to sound a note of caution. They are urging their fellow conservatives to speak up about what they say are the Trump administration’s betrayals of bedrock legal norms.

“Conservative lawyers are not doing enough to protect constitutional principles that are being undermined by the statements and actions of this president,” said John B. Bellinger III, a top State Department and White House lawyer under President George W...

Donald Trump Improved

Some poster on Reddit came up with this makeover for Donald Trump.

In early 1861, after Lincoln’s election, a little girl famously wrote to him, telling him he’d look better with a beard. Old Abe responded by growing one, proving the little girl right.

Taking grooming advice from a member of the public was good for the first Republican president, and it’s bound to be even better for the most recent.

The “How Dare You Live Without Me” Attitude Got Him Killed

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 07:19, Thursday, 15 November

And since Oklahoma has a “Make My Day” law, this will likely be ruled justified. TPD: Woman shoots ex-boyfriend who forced his way into her home.

The homeowner told officers her ex-boyfriend knocked on her front door. When she opened it, he pushed his way inside her house.

The woman told police he physically assaulted her, so she grabbed her pistol and shot him.

He is in a local hospital. He will have to answer some tough questions when the doctors are done with him.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Quote of the day—Jen Zamzow

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 06:00, Thursday, 15 November

Anyone serious about building consensus on gun policy needs to be slower to judge and quicker to listen to those who disagree. I understand why gun-safety advocates might not want to listen to those who are skeptical of gun-safety laws. People are being killed in their places of worship and kids gunned down at school; this kind of crisis can make people feel they don’t have time for dialogue.

However, listening to those who are resistant to gun-control laws is more than just a sign of respect. Understanding what motivates people can help us come up with better solutions that are more likely to stick. Instead of focusing on what motivates us, we need to ask what motivates them. We don’t all need to take the same path to get to the same destination. We can get more people to the destination if we can find a path they’re willing to take.

The Murder of Kashoggi

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 06:33, Thursday, 15 November

The Saudi government is prosecuting the killers.  11/15/18 New York Times:

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor said on Thursday that he was requesting the death penalty for five people suspected of involvement in the killing of the Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi at the country’s consulate in Istanbul.
Speaking to reporters in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, a spokesman for the public prosecutor said that the 15-man team sent to confront Mr. Khashoggi had orders to return him to the kingdom, but after he resisted they decided on the spot to kill and dismember him.
Some have suggested that this might have been an internal effort to embarrass an increasingly modernizing government (about to reach the 18th century). Their version suggests angry and incompetent.

Believe All Women!

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 05:30, Thursday, 15 November

11/14/18 Daily Wire reports on a Tampa cop fired after a woman he pulled over claimed a sexual assault:

The woman, according to Escobar, York’s attorney, refused a full medical exam and would not give blood and urine samples. She insisted, oddly, that they focus on her underwear and a tampon she was using at the time of the alleged incident. The tampon was never found.
A DNA swab of her underwear, taken from the front material, found York’s DNA. Normally this would be the nail in the coffin for someone accused — and at first it looked that way for York. But his attorneys argued that the DNA — known as touch DNA — could have gotten on her underwear some other way. You see, touch DNA refers to the skin cells one leaves on an object after they have touched it. York’s attorneys argued the woman rubbed her driver’s license (which York had touched during the traffic stop) on her underwear to transfer the DNA.
Her story to investigating officers kept changing.  Worse:

Members from the International Women’s Fishing Association met at the Islamorada Fishing Club Sunday, October 21st for their annual Islamorada Backcountry Tournament Captain’s meeting.  Twenty-two women traveled from as far north as Wisconsin and some from Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Islamorada. The three-day tournament format where 2 different anglers fish together per boat with different local Keys fishing guides each day. This year tournament director Kim Clement added a new Fly Division where ladies that entered could only fish Fly tackle. Six ladies entered in this division with 3 designated local fishing guides that specialized in Fly fishing.  869 fish were caught and released throughout the three-day event. Anglers could only count 5 per species for scoring so more fish were actually caught and released making it to be some great fishing in the Keys!

Self-defense is Legal in Georgia

But then I always suspected that it was. Police: Deadly shooting at Atlanta park was self-defense.

North China Type 19: The Improved Nambu Pistol

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 02:00, Thursday, 15 November

This pistol is being sold at Rock Island on December 2, 2018.

The North China Type 19 pistol (not to be confused with the North China Type 19 rifle) is an improvement on the Type 14 Nambu pistol design which was manufactured in very small numbers in Japanese-occupied China late in World War Two. With shipping connections between Japanese troops in China and the Japanese home islands cut off by US naval activity, plans were put in place to expand Japanese-run arms manufacturing in China and the Type 19 pistol was part of those plans.
The two major improvements to the Nambu design that the Type 19 incorporates are a solid frame with a disassembly lever in place of the removable trigger guard, and a redesign of the manual safety to be much more ergonomic. The magazine retention spring was also wisely discarded. Two distinct types of these pistols are known; one ver...

So Of Course, There Are Calls For Crossbow Control

In that place where Great Britain used to be. A pregnant woman was shot in the stomach by a crossbow. Her baby managed to survive.

Politicians are calling for regulating crossbows, because blaming the guy who killed her is so 20th Century.

Sana Muhammad was shot and killed by her ex-husband, Ramanodge Unmathallegadoo. He’s in custody.

Guns. Knives. Now Crossbows. Soon pipes, sticks, and cricket bats. What will they do when they discover you can kill people with your hands and feet?

David Yamane always seems to have some insight. Recent events indicate that cops could use some of the insight. It’s Not About the Shoothouse, It’s About Decision-Making with a Gun/

The line that forms the title to this post is about the fact that everyone in his class shot a picture of an under-cover police officer. It brought to mind the shooting in suburban Chicago, where a cop shot an armed security guard, and the shooting in Aurora, Colorado, where cops shot an armed homeowner in his own home. (The homeowner was hard of hearing, and couldn’t hear the cops. The only thing he pointed at them was a flashlight.) There are other examples of course.

Although clearing a structure with a rifle and a partner in search of a hostage in a terrorist bomb making facility is an unlikely scenario for me, I was easily able to substitute my own more realistic (even if also unlikely) scenarios as I reflected on my runs through the shoothouse. For example, I come home from a trip and find the door of my house kicked in and my wife i...

But the Rules Aren’t Supposed to Apply to THEM!

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 15:34, Wednesday, 14 November

Only the peons should have to follow the rules. (Maybe they’re more like guidelines.) Hollywood, amid fires and looters, finds its pro-gun side.

So some folks in Hollywood – who’ve been impacted by the fires – are deterring looters in the traditional way.

“PDC Posse,” a group of gun-toting men who’ve taken it upon themselves to defend properties affected — read: nearly destroyed — by the Woolsey Fire by warning, via a posted sign, “Looters will be shot on site! PDC Posse.” And maybe these guys were all pro-Second Amendment prior to the tragedies of fire ravaging their homes.

Funny how they don’t think self-defense should be available to the peons in Flyover Country.

As summer starts heating up, scientists just published the coldest temperature ever recorded on Earth. During the long, dark Antarctica winter temperatures dropped low enough to resemble other planets.

The temperature they measured? A stunning negative 144 degrees Fahrenheit (-97.8 degrees Celsius). At that temperature, just a few breaths of air would induce hemorrhaging in your lungs and quickly lead to death.

The temperature was recorded using satellite measurements in the middle of Antarctica during the depths of winter where the sun never rises. These findings, recently published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, are close to the theoretical coldest temperature Earth can get down to.

Something to keep in mind

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 07:53, Wednesday, 14 November

Washington state law has some interesting things to keep in mind:

State law defines malicious harassment — a felony commonly referred to as a “hate crime” — as intentionally injuring, damaging property or threatening someone “because of his or her perception of the victim’s race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or mental, physical or sensory handicap.”

In Seattle a misdemeanor malicious harassment law extends those protections to include gender identity, homelessness, marital status, political ideology, age and parental status.

Let’s play “Find the School Shooting” again

Caveat Emptor, Baby

by Tam in View From The Porch at 07:25, Wednesday, 14 November

Colt's New Line single action solid-frame pocket revolvers are an affordable relic from the days of the Old West, especially considering what Colt's larger revolvers go for.

Most I've run across aren't working, and it's rarely worth the effort to try and get one running, but they're neat little paperweights all the same.

Colt made them for a few years in several different calibers: .22, .30, .32, .38, and .41, all rimfire. The reason they stopped making them was so many companies blatantly ripped them off, selling them cheaper than the quality guns from Colt.

Rand Tells Off Nietzsche in Heaven

Gerard van der Leun, now a refugee burned out of his home, with the loss of everything, by the fire that swept over Paradise, California, is in Chico and reports that the good people of that town are acting like real Americans.

Near closing time in the men’s Clothing Clearance Corner on the first floor of Penny’s at the Chico Mall, a young girl is replacing the piles of tossed clothing left by the numbed shoppers from Paradise frantic for cheap basic clothing. Some of them are camped in tents somewhere close by the mall; for how long nobody knows. But this young, quietly lovely girl is putting the Cloth...

Catch and Release?

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 09:00, Wednesday, 14 November

It’s possible he was out due to “credit for time served,” but I would bet he was on parole. (Or it could be both.) Police: 1 man behind 2 carjackings, 3 burglaries, shooting in Nashville.

Stanton is a convicted burglar and car thief. He received a six-year prison sentence in July 2016. He had just gotten out of jail in August 2018.

Theft, carjacking, and a felon with a gun. Bets on whether the District Attorney turns him over to the feds for the federal gun-charge? (My bet would be no, since having the feds prosecute someone doesn’t help the DA get reelected.)

Real Guns Of Fallout: 10mm

Quote of the day—Jeff Snyder

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 06:00, Wednesday, 14 November

If resistance to gun-control laws is based on guns, or the enjoyment of guns, rather than our inalienable right to life and the sovereignty of the people, if we are consistently perceived as concerned only that we be left undisturbed to enjoy target shooting, hunting or collecting fine firearms, if, in fact, that is all that we do care about the resistance by an angry few will likely prove futile, and we will lose — not secure — the right to keep and bear arms.

Jeff Snyder
2001
Nation of Cowards, The Line in the Sand, page 161
[This book should be required reading in school. And since it is not every gun owner must be strongly encouraged to read it.

I can open the book to any page and easily find something worthy of a QOTD. Sometimes there three or four QOTD are clearly available on a single page and even the titles of the essays alone can qualify as a QOTD. It is an amazing book.—Joe]

Red Flag

by New Jovian Thunderbolt in New Jovian Thunderbolt at 03:00, Wednesday, 14 November

So, many of you saw that my state of Maryland killed a man over the red flag legislation.

That's what happens.  Law is deadly force.  Don't pass a law, legislators, unless you are fine with someone getting killed over it.   And now someone, predictably, has. 

One of 114 'warrants' served for this sort of thing.  Someone goes "Hey so and so over there is kinda iffy, better take his guns away."  One in 114 times that someone gets killed for it.  So far.  It's only been around for 40 days or so.  Started being enforceable 1 October.  That means more than one a day.

So, what does it take to get your doorbell rung at 6 AM?

Can Shannon Watts, who doesn't know me from Adam's off ox, read my Twitter and do "this guy likes that Sharp as a Marble's guitar tweets too much.  Kinda scary.  I better have the Maryland State police raid his house."

As soon as the hubster said he wanted to go to Colorado Springs, Colorado, for a class reunion at the “Blue Zoo,” aka Air Force Academy, I began making plans … not what to wear to class events, such as dinners and a football game, but how in the wide world of sports can we see the Olympic Training Center? Fortunately, The WON has a great relationship with the USA Shooting Team and its public relations folks. I reached out to Jessica Delos Reyes, associate director of media and public relations, and she invited us to visit her onsite at the US Olympic Training Center. And then, she invited us out to see the Nationals, being held at a range outside of the Springs, where the team’s shotgun athletes competed for points to secure a berth in the 2020 Games in Tokyo.

A photo will tell a lot more than a few words, so enjoy this gallery featuring our nation’s fine athletes, the team behind them and the wonderful facilities they use for training. As someone said to me, “No one here is going for the silver medal.”

The NRA’s response to the American College of Physicians trotting out its same old recommendations of infringing on the Second Amendment rights of Americans after the Thousand Oaks mass murder has ignited a social media firestorm. DRGO was asked for a comment on the matter by the Wall Street Journal, which predictably gave our voice […]

ran across this at Ace:
...I do not believe that this poor guy was shot because he was Black; I think he was shot because the cops were out of control and didn't use what little cognitive ability they may have. "Oh look! Guy with gun! Let's shoot him!" Four other people were shot, and it doesn't sound like the bad guy was the one firing, so that means the cops shot five people. Impressive!

The problem now is that "this business is already out of control." Policing in America is broken, and I see no rational solutions being suggested by anybody. BLM wants cops out of Black neighborhoods, and that is moronic beyond belief. Ignoring the fact that most Blacks are not insane...they want the police around...that will not fix the problem. And Whites are killed by cops at approximately the same rates as Blacks, so it's a fallacious argument anyway. But reflexive support for the police is a very shortsighted reaction too. All it does is embolden the crooked or arrogant or power-mad cops who are the lawbreakers, and reinforces the status quo, which is unacceptable.

Busted

Bowie Jane has a life story that sounds like a TV drama. For a while she was a lawyer by day (barrister actually, in the UK), and a DJ/singer at night. (Bowie Jane is not the name on her law-school diploma!) But the most recent info I can find on that is from 2013, so she may have put the law career on hold as the singing takes off, and she is in the US more.

I said bad things about S.W.A.T. but one thing they did get right is the music. Well, they got it right some of the time. (Even a busted clock is right once in awhile.) This is “Busted (S.W.A.T.

Self-defense Is Legal In Chicago

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 06:30, Wednesday, 14 November

Who would have thought it? Shooting of 59-year-old man in Austin ruled self-defense.

An investigation into a shooting that fatally wounded a man Sunday night during a domestic-related altercation in the Austin neighborhood has been closed after investigators determined it was committed in self-defense.

And that determination has been made at lightning speed.

Apparently it was a domestic violence thing.

Roth Haenel Model 1899 – The First Semiauto Sporting Rifle?

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 04:00, Wednesday, 14 November

This rifle is being sold at Rock Island on December 2, 2018.

While Karel Krnka and Georg Roth were in the process of developing the M1907 pistol, they diverted slightly to apply their patents to a fancy sporting semiauto rifle – the Model 1899. Produced and marketed by Haenel, the 1899 was a long recoil, rotating bolt design chambered for the German 8x45mm cartridge (approximately a 150 grain bullet at 1800 fps). The rifle was very expensive, selling for $150 around 1900-1905, ad this was probably the largest single reason why it failed to be commercial successful. At the same time, a very nice bolt action sporting rifle could be bought for $40-$50, and a brand new Winchester 1897 shotgun for $27. There is a question of whether the 1899 was the first commercial sporting semiauto rifle available, and unfortunately I don’t have the data to conclusively say. The patent dates are 1...

Is Anyone Really Surprised?

by Sebastian in Shall Not Be Questioned at 06:53, Wednesday, 14 November

The new Dem house is going to make gun control a priority. Here are the stakes: next time the Dems control everything we’re getting gun control out the ass. A new and worse ban on “Assault Weapons” is almost a guarantee. And yes, this will give the GOP an excuse to take us for granted and not do anything for us.

We’re back on the defensive, folks. How do you people who laughed Bloomberg off feel now?

For those of you in Montana: have you lost your minds? We can’t afford a state like Montana having a guy like John Tester in the Senate. I can’t believe Montana has been californicated to that degree. You can do better. Now we have six years before we get another shot at him.

Beer, In Comments

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 20:48, Tuesday, 13 November

Kamas Kid says:

Grainbelt was big up here. My Grandpa had a bunch of signs and paraphenalia with the logo on it when he owned a bar. I was watching an old football game on youtube the other day and they had a bunch of commercials for Schaefer Beer. I tried some once, and it wasn't for me. I remember my parents drinking PBR and Old Milwaukee when I was a kid.
In early 1976 I moved to Fort Knox, KY to attend the basic course for armored officers.  I remember Shaefer beer.  It was available at the Class 6 store for $16.00 a keg.  Shaefer was the beer that was served at company parties.I have helped to float several kegs of Shaefer beer.  One beer that I always thought tasted like stale horse-piss was Blatz (the fire-brewed beer).  But, my father-in-law, a Cajun, came up to visit us ad fell in love with it.  He took a couple of cases home and insisted that I bring it to him when I came home on leave.  I never understood his affection for that beer.

H.R. 7115 “The Instant Felony Hobby Act”

by Carl Bussjaeger in The Zelman Partisans at 11:31, Tuesday, 13 November

And so much more. Officially, the short title for this mess is “3–D Firearms Prohibitions Act,” but I stand by my version.

(a) Banned hazardous products.—Notwithstanding section 3(a)(5)(E) of the Consumer Product Safety Act (15 U.S.C. 2052(a)(5)(E)), the following shall be considered banned hazardous products under section 8 of such Act (15 U.S.C. 2057):

(1) A firearm receiver casting or firearm receiver blank or unfinished handgun frame that—

(A) at the point of sale does not meet the definition of a firearm in section 921(a) of title 18, United States Code; and

(B) after purchase by a consumer, can be completed by the consumer to the point at which such casting or blank functions as a firearm frame or receiver for a semiautomatic assault weapon or machinegun or the frame of a handgun.

(2) An assault weapon parts kit.

(3) A machinegun parts kit.

The End of PBR

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 08:00, Tuesday, 13 November

Pabst Blue Ribbon is a beer I remember well.  It was the brew of choice for my old friend Junior and he always had a six pack in his fridge.  I understand that nowadays it's a hipster beer (and one of the low-end bargain beers.  But, it had a following, but now it's in a lawsuit with MillerCoors over production capacity.  It seems that MillerCoors is brewing Pabst beer.

MILWAUKEE — Pabst Brewing Company and MillerCoors are going to trial, with hipster favorite Pabst contending that MillerCoors wants to put it out of business by ending a longstanding partnership through which it brews Pabst’s beers.
I know that nowadays it is fashionable to get into partnerships or for a strong company to buy a competitor outright, but it seems to me that if you're a major player, it's not a good idea to let a competitor control your production capacity.

But, the brewing industry is just like every other industry.  Beers come and beers go.  Who remembers Schlitz, Falstaff, or Pearl?

I'm a cat person; have been for 35-ish years. I seem to have a knack for getting most of mine to some seriously ripe old ages. We had to have Ethyl, a little spitfire of a cat, euthanized about 14 months ago at the age of 19 because of kidney failure.

We knew she was suffering from the disease, but we were doing as much as she would allow to support her. And then she just crashed, and the blood test said "Time, please". As we always do, we brought her home and she's buried with 2 others (Ricky and Fred) off to one side of the back yard.

We, the undersigned, ask that you contribute today to this pro bono GoFundMe effort to help five time Emmy Award-winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson finance her landmark lawsuit against the Department of Justice for the spying on her computers after she reported honestly but negatively about the federal government and the past presidential administration.

Witnesses say Roberson was wearing his uniform, including a hat emblazoned with the word "security," and was holding a firearm he was licensed to carry ... "Everybody was screaming out 'Security!' " Harris told WGN. "And they still did their job, and saw a black man with a gun, and basically killed him." [More]
Oops.

So why is it black "leaders" overwhelmingly demand a monopoly of violence, where the police they fear are the "only ones" with guns?

*And yeah, it's a real word.

Author Gary Kleck debated former Brady Center CEO Paul Helmke about gun laws and self defense at a Soho Forum in New York City. Topics included background checks, printing 3D guns, arming school officials, and large capacity magazine clip bans. [Watch]
I'd mentioned it earlier.

Some things just aren't up for debate as far as I'm concerned. John Parker didn't offer to discuss things.

Stan Lee: Dead at 95

by JDZ in Never Yet Melted at 07:41, Tuesday, 13 November

Wikipedia:

Stan Lee (born Stanley Martin Lieber; December 28, 1922 – November 12, 2018) was an American comic book writer, editor, and publisher. He was the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, and later its publisher and chairman, leading its expansion from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation.

In collaboration with several artists—particularly Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko—he co-created fictional characters including Spider-Man, the Hulk, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Black Panther, the X-Men, and—with his brother, co-writer Larry Lieber—the characters Ant-Man, Iron Man, and Thor. In doing so, he pioneered a more complex approach to writing superheroes in the 1960s, and in the 1970s challenged the standards of the Comics Code Authority, indirectly leading to it updating its policies.

Remington Stun Safe Slaughterhouse Gun

Remington Stun Safe Slaughterhouse Gun (1)During one of the recently ended Rock Island online auctions, there was a rather unique consigned firearm which RIAC also published a video about. This unusual Remington rifle was designed to be used in slaughterhouses. Such guns are known to exist in many variations, however, the Remington Stun Safe is quite interesting in terms of the amount […]

The major gun safety groups like Brady have done very little to promote a technology approach. … This we “believe” is because of a small group of naïve well-heeled idealists on the left don’t want a safer gun to be the solution to gun violence. The idealists on the left, who supported the New Jersey mandate, and right have prevented a pragmatic solution for a long time.

Like your Ferrari, a halfway decent 1911 needs oil.  Some of them fancy modern plastic jobs can and do run like a hippy from soap with nothing at all in the lube department.

But what say it's the Zombacalypse and you are fresh out of FP-10 Shooters Choice.  And you like to apply the usual 3 drops, every day, before turning in after a hot and dusty work filled day.

What can you use if you are out of branded gun-erl?

I wouldn't hesitate to use 3-in-1 oil.  Or Singer sewing machine oil.

A Dunkelweizen and A Smoke

We headed over to 1781 Brewery on Sunday afternoon. I was interested in trying the Dunkelweizen I had seen mentioned on their Facebook page. After getting my beer I also checked out the humidor in the brewery picked up a Crowned Heads Le Carema cigar to enjoy as well.



Although the beer in the picture above seems to have a reddish tint with the sun shining through it, the beer was actually dark reddish-brown in color. The flavor profile had a creamy, malt base with a touch of roasted bread. At just 4.7% it was an enjoyable mid-afternoon libation. The rich leather and creamy notes of the smoke made for a ...

Christine Corkell is a Syren ProStaffer who shoots a Syren Tempio Over/Under 12 gauge and also, a Syren L4S 12 gauge semi-automatic. She lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and has been competing in Sporting Clays since 2008 and in Master Class since the fall of 2016, the highest level available in Sporting Clays. She can often be found with her friendly champagne lab, Savannah, and husband, Charlie, at competitions on the Eastern Shore and throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Unfortunately, she has been having issues with her eyes and has not been able to shoot since June of 2018, so I asked her some questions about her eye problems and what, if any, solutions she has to continue her shooting in 2019. She’s in her mid-50s and wants other ladies (or men) to know what to do if they experience the same symptoms.

by Tam in View From The Porch at 05:20, Tuesday, 13 November

So, I have an unusual habit when I'm on the road for gun school.

In the hotel room I leave the TV turned on to one of the cable news channels with the volume down at a level where it's audible but non-intrusive. I leave it on while I'm writing or working in Photoshop or reading, and I'll leave it on while I'm sleeping.

Originally I used CNN or CNN Headline News, and it was ostensibly because I wanted to keep tabs on current events while I was on the road.

At some point a few years ago, I started alternating channels on alternating nights: MSNBC Friday night, Fox News on Saturday night, then back to MSNBC, lather, rinse, repeat.

Both networks, of course, shed all pretense of objectivity years ago and now deliver the news with a naked partisan slant: infotainment, or perhaps current events presented as professional wrestling spectacle.

What's interesting is how far they've diverged; it's to the point where it's like I'm getting news reports from parallel universes.

Which is what made this headline funny:

...

Our nation just witnessed two California tragedies, back-to-back: The mass killing of a dozen party goers at the Borderline country bar, and the Camp Wildfire rapidly marching toward three dozen deaths with hundreds missing.  I’m experiencing a double dose of frustration because I am at a loss to conceive of a solution that guarantees against […]

but the physical damage very often doesn't hit the asshats behind the screwing.

Example: power company wants to clear trees near power lines that are/can be a threat.  Response from idiots:
Some members of the Save the American River Association and the American River Parkway Coalition and others are fighting to stop PG&E from cutting down what they estimate could be 100 cottonwood and oak trees near a major electricity transmission line that runs through the parkway near Discovery Park.
...
“We do not think that process and planning should be thrown to the wind in a panic over the global problem of dealing with wildfires in California,” the river association’s Betsy Weiland said. “What is the real fire risk here?”
In the current fires, more than 40 dead, huge damage, and the enviroweenies are bitching- again- about doing ANYTHING to help in the future other than getting rid of people.

Also, asshats, your fires are not a 'global problem', other than idiots like you around the globe effing things up.

In (formerly Great)Britain,

by Firehand in Irons in the Fire at 06:38, Tuesday, 13 November

During the first six months of the year, police recorded 39,332 knife crime offenses -- a 12 percent increase over last year, according to the Office for National Statistics. Other violent crimes, including murder and robbery, also increased by double-digit percentages.
...
The true tally of knife crimes is likely even higher than ONS' figure, given Greater Manchester Police data was excluded by ONS because a review of its figures found they undercounting offenses. If those figures were included, the total of knife or sharp instrument offenses across the U.K. would climb to 41,884.
I'm sure someone will inform us that this isn't that bad because 'at least they aren't using guns!'

And, gee, I wonder why they were undercounting?  And doesn't that sound familiar...

He's suing the school and the female.
A former student who was expelled for sexual misconduct just four days before graduating is suing the University of Chicago for allegedly violating his due process rights.

That the accused student, "John Doe," has chosen to sue his accuser, "Jane Roe," is indicative of the serious, malicious actions he ascribes to her. According to Doe's lawsuit, their relationship was entirely consensual, and Roe did not dispute that. After they broke up, they continued to have sex, and those encounters were all consensual as well. Roe did not allege wrongdoing until her friends—to whom she had trash-talked Doe, and promised to stop seeing her ex—discovered she was still sleeping with him. She then claimed Doe had engaged in nonconsensual sex with her after she had passed out.

New Jersey’s “Catch and Release”

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 06:00, Tuesday, 13 November

It was supposed to keep “low-level” criminals out of jail if they can’t afford bail. It wasn’t supposed to free murderers. NJ Bail Reform Strikes Again: Judge Frees Fair Lawn Woman Accused Of Shooting Man In Face.

Police were shocked to learn that a Fair Lawn woman charged with attempted murder after authorities said she shot a man in the face was released from jail over the weekend.

Not sure this is what the law intended, or maybe it is just poorly written. But is this a good idea?

In the words of Second City Cop (on Chicago’s situation)

Welcome to the world of Zero Consequences. We hope you enjoy your stay at Ground Zero.

The MSM is Screaming about this story. I found one article that has his off-duty status listed in the headline. This isn’t it. Texas firefighter shot to death during fight after party. Though they at least note that he was off-duty in the first paragraph.

Investigators say a Houston-area homeowner has fatally shot an off-duty firefighter after both attended a party and later got into a physical fight.

Several other stories only get to the “off-duty” fact about halfway, or more, through the story. The only good explanation is that the MSM is trying to paint this as an attack on a firefighter doing his job. It isn’t. (They just can’t stand the idea that a state actor might be answerable to an average citizen for his actions, even while off-duty.)

It’s worse. This off-duty-firefighter-otherwise-known-as-a-Private-Citizen went to someone else’s home – someone he had a disagreement with earlier – apparently with the intent of continuing the disagreement. Things did...

Triggered SJWs Screaming in Three, Two, One…

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 05:05, Tuesday, 13 November

Who wants to take bets on which side of the political spectrum suddenly is not interested in science? Women really are more empathetic and men more analytical, biggest ever study shows.

In the biggest ever study examining differences between the sexes, scientists have concluded that women really are more empathetic while men are more analytical and logical.

Most of that article is behind a pay wall, and like all elements of the Mainstream Media – even the part that isn’t to the Left of Chairman Mao – the are interested in clicks, and sales, and revenue. So it is a little provocative. (But they got me to click!) An article that is not behind a paywall, is perhaps not so over-the-top. Largest ever study of psychological sex differences and autistic traits.

MC58: A USMC Semiauto Trainer 22 for the M14

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 04:00, Tuesday, 13 November

This rifle is being sold at Rock Island on December 2, 2018.

When the USMC adopted the M1 Garand in 1942, they decided they would like to have a new semiautomatic training rifle in .22 rimfire to go along with it. Eugene Reising, working for Harrington & Richardson, promptly produced a semiauto .22 LR version of his military submachine gun to fulfill that role, designated the Model 65. This rifle had a stock and barrel sized to duplicate the handling of the M1, and a nice aperture sight as well. By 1945, between 6,000 and 10,000 had been sold to the military, and total sales would reach about 18,500. After the war, H&R attempted to make the rifle more popular on the commercial market as the Leatherneck, Model 150, and Model 151, but sales were tepid.

In 1958, the USMC contracted for another quantity of the rifles, as they were adopting the M14 at that time. Several minor chan...
