Quote of the day—Bill de Blasio

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 06:00, Tuesday, 18 September

What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. And I would, too. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of history that have elevated property rights and wealth to the point that that’s the reality that calls the tune on a lot of development.

Trigger Go-Fast

by New Jovian Thunderbolt in New Jovian Thunderbolt at 03:30, Tuesday, 18 September

So bumpstocks and whatnot are illegal in Maryland.

But the law is written such that ANYTHING that makes you able to pull your firearm's trigger faster is the same thing as a having a bumpstock and now a crime.  Well a crime after October 1st.

Put some molybdenum grease on your sear-hammer engagement in the 1911?  FELONY!

Put some gun oil on the BOLT of Grampa's pre-64 Winchester .30-06?  You can go mariginally faster cycling that bolt.  FELONY!

Like most gun laws in Maryland... heck most laws, of any flavor...  they are poorly written and subject to all kinds of misinterpretation.  Which is why I'd never avoid jury duty for anything.  ~cough-nullification-cough~.

Shhh, don't tell any Maryland DA's my real name.   They will dump me in voir dire.

So, if in Maryland, and someone at the range that looks like he might be a cop asks you if you put any oil on your pistol, tell that guy to go pound sand down a rathole.

I recently wrote a piece for The WON about running with a gun, and there is another piece of that self-protection mindset that we should make sure we cover: storage. Part of carrying a gun when you run, walk, hike, or otherwise leave your house and chose to be armed is securing it when you return home.

Government is inefficient even when it is trying to be efficient.  Marcel Bich (creator of the Bic ball point pen) saw that clearly:

We are fiercely anti-technocratic. The way to keep the price of beef down is not by government price regulation, but by producing beef efficiently. 
Technocracy is a widespread disease today. Starting at the top with the ENA (Ecole Nationale d’Administration ), it reaches all levels. It is particularly attractive to French people, Cartesian by nature. It results in a large number of administrators and organizers, but when it comes to rolling up your sleeves and doing the actual work there is nobody. Technocracy results in high production costs and, much more critical, low morale among employees who become discouraged and bored with their jobs in which they cannot take any initiative. By placing confidence in workers, employees and executives, everything becomes simpler. Contrary to popular belief, private enterprises have a greater chance of success today than they ever did. As proof, just look at th...

Teaching Liberals English

by mzmadmike in The Sacred Cow Slaughterhouse at 21:47, Monday, 17 September

 

The more educated among you may recall that a "faggot" is a bundle of sticks.

In early English boarding schools, the term "faggot" (later shortened to "fag") became applied to the person who gathered the faggots for the fire. This young man also performed numerous other menial tasks. Laundry, boot blacking, even occasionally toilet seat warming.

Eventually, the meniality of these tasks (deemed to be "women's work" in an historically sexist society), and this position, was the source of the term applied to effeminate men believed to be homosexual.  But that is a recent invention, and certainly not the only definition of the term.  Fagging continued in British boarding schools as recently as the 1970s, and I would suspect persists clandestinely.

Now, you can assume that the faggot would be a lower classman, typically also small, and definitely not from a family with money or status.  If you're warming someone else's toilet seat, you're pretty much the low man on the scrotum pole, and certainly not the kind who's going to mount any kind of effective resistance.

And thus, most modern young liberal protesters, regardless of their sexual orientatio...

Book Bomb! Empire of Silence

A Book Bomb is when we pick out a deserving author who could use a publicity boost, and get as many people as possible to buy their book in the same day on Amazon. The more people who buy, the higher it goes in the sales rankings. Once it gets on some bestseller lists, that gets it in front of even more new eyes. Success breeds success, the author gets new readers, and most importantly, the author GETS PAID.

Today’s Book Bomb is for my friend Christopher Ruocchio’s debut novel, Empire of Silence.

Other than the dubious claim that blue states don't pass gun control in the wake of mass shootings.  Which...  is hilariously false.  Given New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, California  all passed gun control measures and do so regularly.   Even Vermont and Florida passed gun control.

Birds Head Grips

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 15:32, Monday, 17 September

The era of the 1870s-1890s was a remarkable period on many levels, not the least of which was the rapid progression of firearms design.  I've been doing a little bit of research, and found some interesting stuff.  The first one is here:

The 1877 Colt Double Action Revolver
by Ed Buffaloe
Most likely, the Colt Double Action revolver of 1877 was a response to the introduction of the Webley Bulldog pistol in 1872, which was already being imported into the U.S. by late 1873.  The Webley was a double action pistol with a two inch barrel, the original version of which held 5 rounds of .44 center fire ammunition.  It was well received in the U.S. because it was well made, reliable, concealable, and relatively cheap compared to a Colt or a Smith & Wesson, plus it was “self-cocking,” advertised (in later years) as being able to fire five rounds in three seconds.  This gun almost demanded a response from the premier American gun manufacturers.

Is Dianne Feinstein the Most Corrupt Senator in the United States?

Probably, but that is a pretty high bar.  You realize that we're talking about Democratic senator?

I didn't realize until early this morning, but this whole Kavanaugh debacle smacks of the Anita Hill allegations about Clarence Thomas.  History may not repeat itself, but it surely rhymes.  This is straight out of the Democratic palybook.

Feinstein sat on that letter for months, had plenty of  opportunity to bring it up, and waited till the 11th hour to make the stunning revelation.  The accuser is a piece of work as well.  She also had plenty of time to make those allegations.  From what little I've read, the woman in question is a PhD professor of something-or-other at a California university.   She is certainly educated enough to know that there is a time limit on everything.   In most wedding ceremonies that I've attended, there is an admonition to the witnesses to "speak now, or forever hold your peace".

Trump Hatred Never Stops!

Lewis told officers on Sept. 2 that four teens confronted her about 11:15 p.m. the previous day as she drove home on Jackson Street and told her “she didn’t belong here,” police said Saturday. Lewis also said the teens shouted “Trump will make America great again,” LeBrun said at the time.
She now admits she made it up.

Ukrainian or Russian Partisan Modified MP40

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 06:27, Monday, 17 September

Some collectors hunt for firearms which look perfectly new form the factory, and others prefer arms that show lots of evidence of use and history. Well, this is definitely one of the latter type – this 1943 production MP40 submachine gun has a terrible finish, most likely as a result of being buried for a period of time. It also has a crudely fabricated and attached brass-catching bag. The muzzle nut is missing as well – possible just lost, or possible removed to attach a suppressor along with the brass catcher.

There is no way to know for sure, but the evidence all taken together suggests that this is a weapon captured and modified by Soviet or Ukrainian partisans during the latter years of World War Two.

Thanks to the Association of Maltese Arms Collectors and Shooters for providing this unique submachine gun for video!

We received a measured 6.9" of rain and had wind gust that topped 30 MPH. No trees down and no power outage, although it did the "on-off-on-off-on" dance a few times.


In the local area, there are a few trees, mostly dead or diseased, that have come down, along with minor flooding and a number of power outages. I imagine there is also some roof damage here and there.

I'm grateful for my blessings, and pray for the safety and well-being of those who have been grievously affected by the storm.

Lies, Damned Lies, and the Brady Campaign

by Tam in View From The Porch at 07:29, Monday, 17 September

I've just made the phone call to KEH and now I'm waiting on them to call me back, so I suppose I can tell the story in public now...

"So, I had posted on my blog a couple weeks ago about how I wanted a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens for shooting action stuff and indoor sports and such, but they were too expensive. 
Well, one of my blog readers emailed me and said he had an older non-stabilized Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L lens that he'd sell me for $250. Even these old ones are bringing $600 on eBay, so it was very generous. Because lens is more important than camera, I took him up on the deal. 
I stopped shooting Canon several years back. I still had the Canon 20D in the house, but I'd given it to Bobbi, and it's an APS-C camera, and this lens deserves a full-frame sensor.  On a lark, before shopping for a Canon-to-Sony adaptor, I went to go see how much the oldest Canon full-frame bodies were going for used.

Wyatt Earp on gunfighting

by Firehand in Irons in the Fire at 06:51, Monday, 17 September

When I say that I learned to take my time in a gunfight, I do not wish to be misunderstood, for the time to be taken was only that split fraction of a second that means the difference between deadly accuracy with a sixgun and a miss. It is hard to make this clear to a man who has never been in a gunfight. Perhaps I can best describe such time taking as going into action with the greatest speed of which a man’s muscles are capable, but mentally unflustered by an urge to hurry or the need for complicated nervous and muscular actions which trick-shooting involves. Mentally deliberate, but muscularly faster than thought, is what I mean.
Today we'd say 'trained reflexes' I believe.  Some interesting reading.

Which reminds me of something.  Great-grandfather on Dad's side, among other things, rode the cattle trails from Texas to Kansas three times, and over his life witnessed a number of gunfights.  One day Dad and a friend took him to a movie, a western.  Came out seriously upset about the gunplay, short version: "It doesn't work that way...

Or the connected "Do you know how bad we look to the world?" and other such bullshit.  One of the many reasons I don't give a rats ass, from 9/12 and our European 'betters':
Night fell and morning broke before I managed to get off that floor to answer my phone. On the other end I heard my boyfriend’s voice, chanting frantically:

Two more towers! Two more towers! Two more towers!

He and his friends were having a party, celebrating the attack on America. He called to invite me, and to this day I have never felt such intense shame.
Yeah, they were 'one with us'.  Until they realized we were actually going to DO something about it, then they turned.
A few weeks later, that beautiful creed had already been forgotten. The one time my country could side with the U.S. was when America was on its knees, but when it refused to...

Ford said the schoolmate jumped on top of them, which somehow allowed her to escape.

Health Insurance Coverage

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 05:25, Monday, 17 September

I saw claims about what percentage of Americans have health insurance, but I have learned that when you see claims made with which you agree, it is always best to check the original source.  The Census Bureau gathers data on poverty, family income, and insurance coverage. You may recall Re. Nancy Pelosi (D-LaLaLand) claiming that record low unemployment levels being not meaningful because so many Americans were injured by alterations to Obamacare.  Those changes happened in 2017.  The Census Bureau reports:
At the same time, the number of people without health insurance coverage and the uninsured rate were not statistically different from 2016....
The percentage of people without health insurance coverage for the entire 2017 calendar year was 8.8 percent, or 28.5 million, not statistically different from 2016 (8.8 percent or 28.1 million people). Between 2...

Masculinity

by New Jovian Thunderbolt in New Jovian Thunderbolt at 03:30, Monday, 17 September

From an article about a liberal that wants to learn how to hunt. And good for him.

"These are not the best of times to declare one’s pursuit of manly ideals. Masculinity, or at least the toxic manifestations of it, has much to answer for."

Why not?  I don't see a problem with it.  Nor do my work and friends and family.  And plenty of them are liberal.  Maybe you need to stop hanging around folks that think like that, buddy.  There is something wrong with keeping your head in that place.  Some loss of faith in the very civilization from which you spring.  Hell confidence in your very humanity.

Also, he mentions the liberal gun club.  Frustrated lefty gun enthusiasts that don't want to restrict magazines, ban AR's, or be associated in ANY WAY with the NRA.  But the only difference with their postions and the NRA is that they really don't have a problem with a nationwide...

Solve the Problem Before You Need Your Gun

by Greg Ellifritz in Active Response Training at 04:12, Monday, 17 September

Written by: Greg Ellifritz

 

I was reading a news account of a defensive gun use yesterday when I was struck by two things.

 

Before I get to my insights, read the short article: Armed Portland Woman Fends Off Flasher High on Crystal Meth.

 

The article talks about a woman who drew a firearm after a man followed her home, forcefully entered her house, exposed himself, demanded a sex act, and then stole money from her before fleeing.

 

This man was a robber, rapist, and home invader.  Yet the news article characterizes the man as a “flasher.”

 

How many people read just the title and thought “drawing a gun on a flasher seems a little extreme” without getting the whole story.  It’s my guess that the news outlet chose that particular headline just to create a specific negative reaction.  While drawing a gun on someone who merel...

What’s The Opposite of “Broken Windows” Policing?

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 05:49, Monday, 17 September

The de-policing of Toronto. TORONTO POLICE MODERNIZATION: The way forward or a step backward?.

You could also title this post, “How to do less, with less.”

Of course the plan in Toronto (known as “The Way Forward”) was supposed to make the police more efficient.

But since it was unveiled in 2016, the service backed away from responding to many lower priority calls, most recently burglar alarms, in an effort to take pressure off frontline cops who spend their days bouncing around from one radio call to the next because they are constantly under-staffed.

They don’t respond to stolen cars, or cars broken into. They don’t respond to burglar alarms. They don’t really respond to retail theft. And gas theft? Clerks are told to file an online form. (Well, they do eventually show up for retail theft, it can just take 10 hours or so.)

Exterior urethane, really. Couldn’t decide on a third color for the back door and finally decided I liked it the way it was, except the original varnish was pretty much gone.

So first thing this morning I sanded down the outside surface, which took the door pretty much down to bare wood. Then over the course of the day I hit it with two coats…

Why I Carry

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 06:04, Sunday, 16 September

There is this piece, over at The Week, where the author opines that police officers in America should not carry guns on a routine basis.  The article sounds like parody in places, but I believe that the guy is serious about his hypothesis.  Or, at lest he believes that he is being serious.

What would happen if American police officers carried whistles instead of guns and dressed in old-fashioned blue uniforms instead of outfits that make them look like they are about to ask us how long we've had these droids? Would the country descend instantly into a chaos of looting, arson, and mass murder?

Ugh.

by Tam in View From The Porch at 06:50, Sunday, 16 September

I really didn't want to go out there and walk this morning, but I guess that's part of it, the doing of things you don't want to do.

I'm debating going to the range today and grinding out more round count on the Wilson EDC X9. I need to finish that up and start writing it up so I can get started on the Autumn of DA/SA.


The Coast Guard relieved a man from rescue duty during the Hurricane because he made the "OK" sign.


Don Surber comments:
In America in the year 2018, burning the flag is acceptable speech while flashing an OK sign is not.
I would add that it is not OK for the officers to throw their troops to the wolves.  The Coast Guard has tried for years to be considered a fifth branch of the military.  They have not learned that loyalty is earned.  The hierarchy that allow this has disgraced their entire service with their cowardice.  They need to go.

It’s for the children…

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 05:00, Sunday, 16 September

By Nathan Barton

Child abuse is a serious, deadly problem in this country.  Consider this:

Not long ago, a NINE year old killed himself in Denver. He was bullied because he decided (and announced) that he was homosexual.  (Or maybe transgender.)

We discussed this already, so you may recall the TEN year old punished for being respectful to his teacher in North Carolina. (He said, “yes, ma’am”)

These are a couple of recent examples of child abuse.  In the “public” (government-run, tax-funded) schools.

But there is more:

On the purely political side of things, we find a few nasty things. I have a separate commentary to be published about the abuses of children related to saying the Pledge of Allegiance.  (To be published.) But let us talk about the growing “police” (military) occupation of public schools, and...

Book Review: Collector’s Guide to the Savage 99 Rifle

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 06:27, Sunday, 16 September

Savage is an often under appreciated gun company, and the Savage Model 99 a rifle often not given the credit it is due. How many other firearms can claim to have been in active production by their original company for 103 years, with more than a million examples made? Well, for those who are interested in collecting the Model 99 (or its earlier iterations, the Model 1895 and Model 1899), David Royal’s “Collector’s Guide to the Savage 99 Rifle” is the sole and definitive source of information. He carefully catalogs all of Savage’s model designations, factory options, production dates, serial numbers, and other such details. It is not a book with a lot of outside context, and thus not much of a general-interest read – but for the serious Savage enthusiast it is indispensable.

9/14/18 Watts Up With That shows a picture of Anderson Cooper talking about how severe the flooding is from Trump's hurricane.  The problem is Cooper is in three feet of water because he is in a ditch.  His cameramen are on the road--not in three feet of water.

9/14/18 Real Clear Politics:

In an interview with Hugh Hewitt on Friday, Bob Woodward said that in his two years of investigating for his new book, 'Fear,' he found no evidence of collusion or espionage between Trump and Russia. Woodward said he looked for it "hard" and yet turned up nothing.

Yeah, it’s tough competition. The Cobray Terminator is still pretty damned bad, and probably remains the worst shotgun.

But in Ian’s revised opinion, the overall champion Worst Gun in the World may well be the USFA Zip .22. It’s not only a piece of plastic shit that doesn’t work, it managed to bring down an otherwise reputable gunmaker.


Cruz intern charged with possession of unregistered ammunition.

Yup, right next door.  Six miles from where I sit.  What this sounds like is Cruz had words with someone and the cops were called and took notice.  Well, that call is on the log, and they are certainly gonna look for something.  And something they found, so downtown one of the loud arguers goes.  Happens to be a Texas boy, interning for the Senator.

Most people from Texas might find it odd NOT to find ammo in someone's car.  In fact, this boy from the Maryland suburbs has a box of 9mm in the car that's been there a week and a half.  No gun, mind you.  Just the box of American Eagle 115 grain.

And I'd not think twice about venturing over the line into DC.  Because I rarely do things that would involve the police.  But that's not smart.  Someone could rear end my truck and bingo, police response.  An over zealous cop might notice the red box on the blue seat.  Now I am cross threaded with the ...

Zip 22: Shooting the Worst Gun Ever

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 06:27, Saturday, 15 September

Today, may the good lord help me, I am taking the Zip 22 out to the range for some shooting.

Note that while it actually worked remarkably well right up until it jammed solid, on the second range trip when we went back to get the high-speed footage, we literally could not get two rounds in a row. We did get a couple neat high-speed malfunctions though…

A big thanks to reader Matt for generously loaning me the gun to film!

An analysis of where anti-Antisemitism comes from.  I was pleased and surprised to hear him label National Socialism as a progressive movement, and showing how their "exterminate the Jews" program was in part derived from the rise of evolution.  Much was not new to me; if you took my Western Civ class you would already know some of it.

And this video about Jewish ideas changed the world also largely appears in my Western Civ class.



I was slightly concerned that he seemed like he was ignoring that the impact of these values on the West and Western-influenced cultures was because Christianity absorbed them, and retransmitted the, but he did get to that at the end.

I have long noticed in reading 19th century newspapers descriptions of crimes against the Indians that are clearly sympathetic to them and hostile to these crimes.  Example: 4/28/1849 Placer [Cal.] Times:

It is not long since an Indian ranchoria near Bear Creek was pounced upon by a small party of whites, and twenty-five of the unsuspecting inmates, of both sexes taken and cruelly murdered.
As the article explained it, this was revenge for thefts committed by other Indians in the area.  A few murders by Indians had led to indiscriminate slaughter of Indians by whites.  The editorial counselled against this refusal to limit retribution on actual guilty indivi...

Whatever they had planned, I don’t think they wanted this outcome. St. Augustine homeowner defending himself shoots, kills intruder; Four suspects charged with murder.

If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed homeowner.

Five people traveled and ended up in the home of an armed homeowner. One of the five was shot and died. The other four are in custody.

An affidavit for arrest warrant says four people have been charged with first degree murder because the shooting death happened during the commission of a felony.

The four are also charged with robbery.

The homeowner has not been charged. The investigation continues.

Chicago is Setting New Record for Murders This Year
CHICAGO, June 3. Already known as the “crime capital of the nation,” Chicago is setting a new record for murders this year. Figures made public today by the Chicago crime commission showed there were 170 murders committed In the first five months of this year—an average far above one each day for the 151 days. The month of May, with 37 murders, exceeds any other similar period with the exception of the 1919 race riots, since the crime commission was organized, January 1, 1918.

Urban Liberal With a Gun

Urban beta-male Oliver Staley decides to dip a liberal toe in the cold, masculine, right-wing waters of the field sports, getting himself taken out as an “apprentice hunter” deer hunting with a shotgun in Northern New Jersey. His goal? Becoming a “liberal hunter.”

I wanted to become an all-American man. So I learned to hunt. …

I’m painfully aware of how much I conform to a stereotype of a Northeastern liberal. I’m a journalist. I drive a Subaru. I recycle assiduously. But I also bristle at being pigeon-holed and having my identity determi...

No Wonder They Passed.

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 09:00, Saturday, 15 September

I'm sure that many of you noticed that Senator Diane Feinstein (hank, spit), the Democrat from California (that doesn't narrow it down much, there are a lot of moonbats in California), sent a letter to the FBI that someone else sent her, regarding some alleged misconduct regarding Brett Kavanaugh, in the dim past.  As details trickle out, it seems that this is about some very vague allegations. 

The FBI passed, and referred the matter to the White House, probably for a raft of very good reasons.  We learn this morning that one of those reasons might have been that Feinstein (hack, spit) redacted the name of the woman before she forwarded the letter to the FBI.

I've been a cop for many years, and I was an investigator in past assignments.  If  an investigator doesn't have a complainant, he doesn't have anything.  If you don't have a victim to interview, you have nowhere to start.  Feinstein gave them nothing.

I suspect that this whole accusation is a huge nothingburger.    From the v...

Another Harbinger of Autumn

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 08:26, Saturday, 15 September

Mowing grass this morning, at the base of the white oak out front, I noticed a red spider lily trying to bloom.


So far, we've had a wet September.  It has, in fact, not rained o this acre o two days of this month.  This day, the 15th, might be the third day this month that we haven't gotten rain.  But, today ain't over yet, so we'll see.

However, spider lilies are a sign of the season, and mine are jumping up.

Story here.

"Recorded machete attacks have increased fivefold in the past three years, to the point that police now deal with an average of 15 incidents involving the broad, sword-like blades each day.

Incredibly strict firearm controls appear to be doing little to stem soaring rates of gun crime, too, with London seeing a 44 per cent rise since 2014 -- but even though this is occuring despite Britain boasting some of the toughest anti-gun laws in the world, politicians hope increasing restrictions on knife sales can help tackle blade crime.

With calls to ban kitchen knife sales on the basis that domestic food preparation does not require chef-sharp tools and stores voluntarily taking knives off the shelves, the United Kingdom already takes a much stricter approach to sharp objects than most other Western nations, with authorities earlier this year arresting a man for carrying a potato peeler in a public place "without reasonable excuse"."

I have two dogs.  I love them.  I love my dogs a lot more than I love socialists.  So let this be a warning:

If you implement socialism, causing me to end up on $10 a month in wages so I can’t afford to buy dog food for my dogs.  I will not abandon my dogs.  I will grind your socialist voting ass into chopped meat and feed you to my dogs.

Forget coffee cups that say “Liberal Tears.”  You will end up in a old coffee can marked “Comrade Brand Dog Chow.”
Although the parasite meat should probably be inspected for any other parasites.
