Speaking of tyrant wannabes, we have the Mayor of Chicago:

To wit: Although there are no gun shops in Chicago, a top mayoral source tells Sneed that Rahm has ordered Police Supt. Garry McCarthy and the city corporation counsel’s office to begin using the “city’s own authority” to stem such gun sales by shops outside the city.
Go ahead; I want to see just how much the city of Chicago, the police and you are sued for. And I tend to think claiming immunity won't work; let's see, knowingly ordering police to go OUTSIDE THEIR JURISDICTION to arrest people?
I can hear lawyers licking their chops at the idea of going to court over that kind of crap. 

These people really are corrupt power-grabbers, aren't they?

Why people think vegans suck

And not in a good way.
Part 1 and Part 2


And more frikkin' joy of the season, coming from the mid-East:

Two days after a mysterious explosion at a Hezbollah weapons depot in southern Lebanon, the Kuwaiti website Al Jarida is reporting that Israel bombed the site because Syria had transferred missiles there that were capable of being equipped with chemical warheads. The missiles had been moved into Lebanon from Syria in the last several months and were being held inside warehouses owned by farmers in the area.
If true, the Israelis must be cover the area with every asset they've got trying to pin down locations; this is the kind of thing they do NOT want the Palistinians stockpiling.

Speaking of weather scares, currently for OK the NWS is saying
yet the summary page for the area shows 20-30% chance of anything.
Covering their bases, I guess

I had to run to the store earlier, and went by the nearby Wally World just to check:
Lots of shotshells, 'standard' hunting/target rifle ammo.
Lots of .40S&W.
Lots of .22 Magnum and shorts.
NO .22lr.
No 9mm.
NO .45acp.
NO .223/5.56.
NO .308/7.62.
You can tell which cartridges/guns people worry about most.  Or just want to send a message with most.

Speaking of messages, I rather doubt congresscritters aren't taking note of the sales levels, and just what's going fastest(rather pointed message, that).  Still, give them the word anyway.  Even if you have a gun-bigot Rep or Senator; they may not like it or say anything, but the more they get, the better the message gets across.  Lots of these bastards, for all their posturing, consider keeping themselves in that taxpayer-supplied office the #1 Priority Of All.

Guess what? It wasn't the NRA that called BATFE a 'jack-booted group of fascists'

first: it was a Democrat congressman named Dingell:

"If I were to select a jack-booted group of fascists who were perhaps as large a danger to American society as I could pick today, I would pick BATF. They are a shame and a disgrace to our country."
-U.S. Congressman John D. Dingell (Democrat from Michigan), 1980

"The consequences of the behavior of the BATF in these kinds of cases is that they are not trusted. They are detested, and I have described them properly as jackbooted American fascists. They have shown no concern over the rights of ordinary citizens or their property. They intrude without the slightest regard or concern. Now, if you want a more recent event, take a look at what they did in Waco, TX. Is that a defensible event? Scores of Americans were killed because of ineptitude by BATF acting under legal process, as they said, and that whole matter is going to be suppressed after scores of Americans have been killed because of the ineptitude and crass misbehavior of the BATF."
-U.S. Congressman John D. Dingell (Democrat from Michigan), February 8, 1995

The NRA quoted him in a letter, and every journalist and gun bigot around accused them of sliming all federal lawmen; they either didn't know who said it, or didn't care(probably both).  And if they did know, they'd have hated to acknowledge such words from a Democrat.
So if someone brings that up, remind them who actually said it. And why.

And note what Tyrant Wannabe Cuomo wants

in the People's Republic of New Effing York:
 Cuomo indicated the state will likely force some kind of permit process on owners of semi-automatic “assault weapons.” In addition to generating revenue and expanding the size and reach of government, the effort will allow the state to confiscate the weapons of citizens who do not comply. “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it,” the governor said.
"You will surrender your property, or we'll jail or kill you" is what it boils down to. They really want to be Stalin, don't they?

That Marine in a Mexican jail for a bullshit firearms charge?

He's being released.
I'm guessing, as our Clinton/Obama-controlled State Dept. showed itself unwilling to do squat(big surprise, right?), there was so much pressure from the general public that the Mexican government decided to get rid of the headache.

Y'know, if video had shown a terror suspect in a US facility chained to a bed, the SecState and everyone else would've had fits; but a US citizen and Marine in Mexico?  They didn't give a crap.

"Why would you want to carry a gun while out in the woods?"

LaPierre refuses to bend over and grab ankles: professional journalists outraged.
Which means he did it right.

On magazines, pointed to by Sebastian:
Hey Guys,

I wanted to take a minute to shed some insight on the magazine situation if i can. First of all I wanted to offer an apology for the situation that Pacs and anyone else encountered with magazines being "In-Stock" and Backordered moments later. Cedjunior had it correct, the demand for magazines actually exceeded the ability for the system to keep up with the volume that was being ordered. They way that our website works is that inventory is fed from our ERP system directly into the website in "real-time". Unfortunately, "real-time" is the amount of time that it takes for the transactions to work both ways. During normal circumstances, it is nearly instant. However, we've been receiving orders at such a pace that these transactions have gotten slower. We absolutely apologize again, we definitely don't want that ever to be your experience.

To shed some more light on the magazine situation at present, it really has been unprecedented in the last 5 days. (Edit - Sorry guys, meant 72 hour period) we sold the "average demand" equivalent of about 3 1/2 years worth of PMAGS, and and an even greater amount of our Brownells magazines. We're working like crazy to get these orders to you as quickly as possible.

We're working directly with Magpul daily to forecast out the next couple of months deliveries. Magpul is focusing their efforts on the BLACK magazines, so we're limiting backorders to only Black for now.

On the Brownells 30 and 20 round magazines, we're still flowing those into the system daily, and are producing those at 100% capacity as well. We ordered more material yesterday that will allow us to up production again in the coming weeks.

Our apologies for the delays! We'll keep working as hard as possible to get these going and will keep you updated always. Let us know if we can do anything at all. - JC
Hehehehe... Sarah Brady & Co. must be depleting their electrolytes, with all those tears falling.

And while we're distracted,

some of the dirtbags in Congress are attacking another part of the Constitution.

Once again, I find myself having thoughts like "C'mon, just one little meteor, during the next Joint Session... is that so bad to wish for?"

Another excerpt from Correia's post

Think about it. You are a violent, homicidal madman, looking to make a statement and hoping to go from disaffected loser to most famous person in the world. The best way to accomplish your goals is to kill a whole bunch of people. So where’s the best place to go shoot all these people? Obviously, it is someplace where nobody can shoot back.

In all honesty I have no respect for anybody who believes Gun Free Zones actually work. You are going to commit several hundred felonies, up to and including mass murder, and you are going to refrain because there is a sign? That No Guns Allowed sign is not a cross that wards off vampires. It is wishful thinking, and really pathetic wishful thinking at that.
True, every word.
If someone wants to post their store or other business 'No Weapons' because they don't like them, so be it; you have the right to do that, and I have the right to take my business elsewhere. But please, don't be such a fool as to actually believe that your little sign will stop someone with evil on their mind.

Speaking of which:
Last night took son to a local Mexican place called Chileno's.  Hadn't been there in a while, so the big red 'No Guns' sign on the door was a shock.  I'm guessing they stuck it up after the open-carry law passed, which is annoying to say the least: no sign for all the years previous, and now this.

So I've written to them, asking why; we'll see what they say.  Under different circumstances I'd have taken him somewhere else upon seeing that.

Standard leftist doctrine: "Don't blame him, YOU

twisted/changed/overemphasized what he said!"
Nozzofast, Guido:
Now, if you are aware of what Loomis actually did, you know it wasn’t just one Tweet (“head on a stick”) that got him in hot water.
As Professor Donald Douglas has explained, before Loomis deleted his Twitter account, it “was practically flooded with blood from all the violent tweets and retweets he’d been sending out.” Unless you consider Tweeting “Fuck the NRA” and re-Tweeting messages about “fuckers” deserving to be “beaten to death” to be appropriate forms of expression for an assistant professor of history, this meltdown was . . . well, arguably problematic.
When I said that the mentally ill should be in institutions, public universities weren’t the kind of institutions I had in mind.
 Oh, but they fit in so well there...
So the operative principle is clear: (A) it would be a crime against human liberty for Erik Loomis to be denied tenure at the University of Rhode Island merely because he’s a demented kook, and (B) no fair trying to talk back to Commissar Farley and the LG&M politburo.
Intimidation,” anyone?

 Never forget what we're dealing with:
The exchange, during which Pratt remains admirably calm, pretty accurately reflects the general tenor of the current gun control debate, with raw emotionalism and invective pitted against skepticism and an attempt at rational argument. I am not saying that every supporter of gun control is a raving bully on the order of Piers Morgan, or even that Pratt is right. (You can judge that for yourself.) But proponents of new gun restrictions are countingon emotional appeals for victory, which is why they insist that action must be taken immediately, before the grief and outrage provoked by Adam Lanza's crimes starts to fade.
And they've got to be bleeding from the anus in outrage that, instead of falling into line, people are buyingA lot.  And don't think "WE MUST BAN!!!" is the best idea.

Why are leftists, gun bigots and hoplophobes so violent?

In which AOL proves it doesn't know what the hell it's talking about, but wants to play anyway.
Second, we're joining with 750 mayors and other leaders in the Demand a Plan campaign to ban high volume assault weapons and require criminal background checks for firearms. This is a sensible idea and is in line with our commitment to family safety.
For anyone who might wander by who doesn't know, 'high volume assault weapons' is a phrase that really doesn't make sense, and if you go to a store to buy a firearm, YOU'VE HAD TO GO THROUGH A BACKGROUND CHECK FOR DECADES.
AOL, you can't even get credit for trying when you put up crap like this.

That nasty little twit Piers Morgan, who lies a lot and insults when presented with facts,
A: Doesn't know what the hell he's talking about, and
B: Seems to go with the standard gun-bigot theme of wanting to yell ONLY about deaths involving firearms; it's like being stabbed or beaten or strangled to death just doesn't count...

First, it appears Thacker and Wintemute are first-class lying

academic hacks.
'Ethicist' my ass.

You wouldn't blame a dog for overeating; you blame the owners for overfeeding him. Nor do you blame a dog for biting a neighbor. You might punish him, but the punishment is training, not a recognition of authentic responsibility on the part of the canine. And the way that you think of a dog, is the way that the left thinks of you. When you misbehave, the left looks around for your owner.

More personal note, son is not only back from Afghanistan, but arrived- on time- today on leave.
Came in late afternoon, and when I brought up dinner it took about three seconds of deep thought to say "I want Mexican.  Real Mexican."  Apparently what's available up in Tacoma isn't bad, but just doesn't quite measure up.

Can't remember where I ran across this link the other day,

but it's interesting.  Short version:
Most cops & troops think Obama would be a fool to sign an executive order banning anything.
Most say not only would they not enforce a confiscation order, they wouldn't register or turn in their own.
Overall opinion: fastest way to stop a mass-shooter is a honest citizen with a gun.
Actually attempting forced confiscation would ignite a civil war in much of the country.

His ending is 'maybe Obama WANTS a civil war, to give himself dictatorial powers and have the UN send in troops for 'humanitarian' reasons.'
General opinionating by me: Well, if he really was that idiotic, just how many UN troops would want to put on their blue hats or helmets and start trying to 'pacify' the US?  Assuming they'd be allowed in(just how much havoc could a few trained people cause to ships or aircraft bringing them in, for instance?)
And how many would survive?
I doubt very much that he's that stupid(some of his nutcase socialist followers might well be).  And I really don't think the UN would have much luck in gathering up forces to move into the US(outside, say, NYEffing City, for instance), and those who did just might have a change of opinion after a while(ever read Freehold? Imagine the UN in that story without any logistical or tech advantage. And outnumbered)

Quotes from Correia's post

About Mumbai:
That’s not my point this time however, I want to look at the response. These ten men shut down an entire massive city and struck fear into the hearts of millions for THREE DAYS. Depending on where this happened in America it would have been over in three minutes or three hours. The Indian police responded, but their tactics sucked. The marksmanship sucked. Their leadership sucked. Their response utterly and completely fell apart.

In talking afterwards with some individuals from a small agency of our government who were involved in the clean-up and investigation, all of whom are well trained, well practiced, gun nuts, they told me the problem was that the Indian police had no clue what to do because they’d never been taught what to do. Their leadership hated and feared the gun so much that they stamped out the ability for any of their men to actually master the tool. When you kill your gun culture, you kill off your instructors, and those who can pass down the information necessary to do the job.
How many of us looked at the pictures of terrorists basically walking around killing, no fear of response?  Read the words of people who wrote "If only I'd had a gun!"?

And on what the hoplophobes and gun bigots have done to ensure it'll happen here*:
Don’t think that we are so far off here. I recently got to sit down with some fans who are members of one of the larger metro police departments in America. These guys were all SWAT cops or narcotics, all of them were gun nuts who practiced on their own dime, and all of them were intimately familiar with real violence. These are the guys that you want responding when the real bad stuff goes down.
What they told me made me sick. Their leadership was all uniformly liberal and extremely anti-gun, just like most big cities in America. They walked me through what their responses were supposed to be in case of a Mumbai style event, and how their “scary assault weapons” were kept locked up where they would be unavailable, and how dismal their training was, and how since the state had run off or shut down most of the gun ranges, most of the cops couldn’t even practice or qualify anymore.
So now they were less safe, the people they were protecting were less safe, the bad guys were safer, but most importantly their leadership could pat themselves on the back, because they’d done something.
Quote I originally saw at Uncle: "Gun control is what politicians do instead of something."

*That's not what they think they're doing, but it is.

I went by H&H range to take care of a couple of things, and

'busy' is understatement.  'BUSY' is more like it.  The firing lanes seemed to be cycling along well, but there were lines in front of all three guys running NICS checks.

After finished what I needed to do I took a walk over to the sales side:
Three AK variants still on a rack.
NO AR variants, new or used.
OUT of all AR mags.
I think someone said they were out of .223/5.56 ammo.
I don't think the Democrats and gun bigots and hoplophobes are getting the results they planned on/hoped for.

Also, a post on gun control from Larry Correia; go, and read

Rep. Himes(D-Gun Bigot-CT) demonstrates one of the standards

of the gun bigots: someone doesn't fall into their line, insult them.  Preferably in a vile manner.

And then Himes comes out with this:
Himes rejected Perry’s remarks yesterday, insisting that “there is absolutely no justification for weapons that were made for the explicit purpose of killing lots of people quickly to be in the hands of civilians.”
 Well, I know a lot of people would be very happy to have M4s and subguns taken out of the hands of the police(especially the SWAT teams), so-
oh, wait, he doesn't think cops are that lesser of the species known as 'civilians', so it's OK for them to have weapons for the explicit purpose of killing lots of people quickly; after all, that's what cops are supposed to do, right?

Someone should show Himes that quote from Commander Vimes:
 It always embarrassed Samuel Vimes when civilians tried to speak to him in what they thought was "policeman."  If it came to that, he hated thinking of them as civilians.  What was a policeman, if not a civilian with a uniform and a badge?  But they tended to use the term these days as a way of describing people who were not policemen.  It was a dangerous habit: once policemen stopped being civilians the only other thing they could be was soldiers.

Of course, soldiers are under the command of the government, not the citizens; and it just might be that Himes likes that idea.

Because I'm sick of the other stuff

"Write today. Call tomorrow.

Show up next week."
Yep.  Get hold of your congresscritter and- politely- raise hell about the gun bigots and hoplophobes dancing in the blood and trying to tear a piece out of the Bill of Rights.


So Obama is crying about the children, while his minions

were doing this:
A gun that “may have been purchased by” the Assistant Special Agent in Charge for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm’s Phoenix Field Division has turned up at the scene of a cartel shootout in Mexico, Ranking Senate Judiciary Committee Member Charles E. Grassley told Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz in a letter today.
In a follow-up to Grassley’s letter, Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News confirmed “that an FN Herstal pistol recovered near the crime scene in November was originally purchased by … Gillett. “Gillett acknowledged he once owned the weapon in question, but says he sold it in Phoenix sometime last year after advertising it on the Internet,” Attkisson wrote, adding “He declined to provide the name of the man who bought it…”
Additionally, in a much-overlooked story from years earlier, “street agent” Gillett had been tied to another “gunwalking”-type operation in Minneapolis, where “more than 150 guns flow[ed] into the Twin Cities underworld” during the Clinton administration.
 Have to wonder, is anything on all this in the documents Holder refused to turn over and Obama wants sealed under executive privilege?

Ok, dumbass, your ability to equate adults

and firearms to kids and rocks is both amazing, and insulting.
Second only to your building of strawmen.

B: as Tam once said, "Go piss on an electric fence, hippie."

I should note: the friend who found this also had the link to the original post; I think some of the comments actually drained brain cells out of my skull.  That level of stupid, it hurts.

"But it was leaking that made Obama look good,

so you expect us to actually do anything about it?"
And it comes out AFTER the election; isn't that amazing?

Attention RWPP dirtbags and morons who like to scream about slavery in this country that ended about 150 years ago being an excuse for crap: THIS is what you should be yelling about.
Of course, the people taking and keeping slaves nowadays mostly aren't white and European; they're the kind of people the RWPP clowns excuse from all kinds from crap because of colonialism and so forth.  It would make the clowns uncomfortable to come out against People Of Color on anything, it seems.
Kind of like the feminists who demanded "Something must be done!" about the way women were being treated in Afghanistan, yet they shit rabid raccoons when Bush DID do something(was it that they didn't actually want something done if it involved non-PC violence, or just that someone they didn't like do it, I wonder?).

Which brings up another thought:
Slavery in the American south screwed with labor markets and caused all kinds of problems, same as what's noted near the end of the article.  Same crap is happening due to illegal aliens in this country; they're willing to work for wages others won't, which causes some employers to hire them cheap, which screws with the labor market and throws all kinds of other costs onto the states and federal government.  And I consider a lot of the politicians helping the illegal alien lobby for the sake of influence, votes and damaging the US to be the moral equals of the bastards in the 1800's who defended slavery in the south.  The only difference is the illegals could leave any time they want, but the dirtbags are making it worth their while to stay here and cause problems, paying them off with OPM.

Usually I try to refrain from bad language, especially when speaking of the current Oval Office occupant.  However, in this case:
Screw you, you miserable little socialist bastard.

Speaking of socialist bastards, one of the big proofs of how badly our .gov is broken is that this idiot is still in office and wasn't prosecuted and thrown out of the House for what she did.
Also that a bunch of people are such fools that they'll keep voting for her.

How badly did Clinton's State Department and Obama's other minions(and probably he) screw up?  This bad.
4 Americans, including an Ambassador, are dead and there will no “disciplinary action” recommended? So it was a total clusterfuck and no one in authority stepped up to deal with it because, that’s how business was done. Shrug.

 Another celebrity idiot who doesn't understand that the interwebs is FOREVER!, one way or another.

Just spoke with a friend who was ordering bullets.  Not loaded ammo, bullets.  The company he called is ten days to two weeks behind on shipping.
For bullets.
He said something about lots of people being backed-up, and was told that a customer who'd come in to pick up an order mentioned going by the Cabala's and Bass Pro in(I think) Reno, and the lines of people waiting to buy firearms, ammo and associated stuff were, well, amazing.
Something I'd like to see someone ask Obama: "Mr. President, considering the numbers of people buying guns, magazines(y'know, you call them 'clips'?) and ammunition, most of whom say flatly they will not surrender them, how many people are you willing to see killed or imprisoned in trying to enforce any ban that might be passed?"
Can you imagine his thoughts?  And what he might say to try to talk around that?

Dr. Helen had a link to this the other day.  One of the comments had two things I responded to:
...stricter laws are required... Also a federal data base for all people taking medication associated with mental health must be set up and those taking medication forbidden from legally purchasing weapons....
 Over here in Greece it is almost impossible to own a weapon except a shotgun for hunting and very few can have a handgun. Rifles are totally illegal. Our problem here is that the government doesn’t have the money to field a larger police force and criminals rob banks, stores, homes and anything else using fully automatic AK-47s! We are outgunned by criminals. It’s the total opposite of what is happening to the U.S. Slowly we are approaching the same problem from the opposite side.
 First, ANYBODY taking ANY meds for a mental health matter?  So if someone is going through a bout of depression and is prescribed a med, they lose their 2nd Amendment rights?
I don't think so.
Not to mention the "Who sets the standards?  How?" and all the holes just waiting in that mess.
On the last, I said that the situation he describes in Greece is just one more case in which honest people are mostly or completely disarmed while the bad guys have no problem getting whatever they want; that doesn't exactly help his 'stricter laws are required' statement.

I just got this by e-mail from Cheaper Than Dirt:
Cheaper Than Dirt! recently announced that it was temporarily suspending online sales of firearms pending a review of its order processing and procedures. Well-known for its ability to process and ship orders within24 hours, online sales have skyrocketed to a point where it may take up to 72 hours for firearms and other items to ship.

"In light of recent events, we believe it is prudent to review our policies and procedures to ensure we can continue to provide the products and firearms our customers demand," said Chief Operations Officer Roberta Wilson. "We will resume online sales once we update our process and continue as we have always done by shipping firearms only to FFL dealers."

Ms. Wilson closed with, "As a long-time supporter of the Second Amendment, we will continue to serve the needs of the firearms community while ensuring our unsurpassed level of quality and customer service."

While at the doctor for my annual violation

this took place:
Doc, at end of some questions: "And do you have your guns secured?"
Me: "I'd say that's nobody's business."
Doc, with slightly-surprised look: "Ok, I'll put down 'Prefers not to answer.' " Saw my look, "The AMA wants us to ask this."
Me: "The AMA can kiss my ass."
Doc: "Well, I won't put it that way."
Me: "Send them a note with it put that way, with my name on it!  I don't mind."
Doc: "I know you don't."

To anyone from the AMA who might read this, I'll repeat: you can kiss my ass.  You need to worry about things like actual health matters and bad docs, not screwing with people's ownership of arms.

To the Connecticut State Police:

Bite me, you arrogant little shits.
Facebook is suspending user accounts that question the official narrative behind the Sandy Hook school massacre, following a warning by Connecticut State Police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance that “misinformation” posted on social media sites could result in prosecution.
 Tell you what, Vance, let's see you threaten to investigate and prosecute the various media outlets who've published bullshit under the heading of 'news' before you start threatening people for questioning the Official Story.
And fuck you.

And fuck YOU, Facebook, for knuckling under to this.  Or willfully cooperating, whichever it is.

On a lighter note,

And, for today's music,

And, borrowed from various sources,

One of the little exchanges on Facebook* the last few days

 included this.  Backstory: in response to various "Don't you care about the children?" and "It only happens in the US!" and "We don't have a violence problem here!" from someone in (fG)Britain I'd posted some links to Brit news sites talking about the huge increases in violent crime in general and crimes involving firearms in particular
 I dont think britan has a serious gun problem at all, nor here in ireland, but we dont have a gun culture here, i have been to america many times and i know for a fact that the rest of the world thinks america has all these shootings because there are too many guns floating around plain and simple. Sorry..i know its a sensitive subject with some of you but thats just most peoples veiw over this side.

My response:
On the primary there, to put it bluntly, I don't give a rats back end what 'the rest of the world' thinks.
Second, ignore the links, ignore the information, go ahead; it doesn't change the facts.

Britain once had a gun culture; your government worked hard to eradicate it, and they've mostly succeeded; along with making self-defense pretty much a crime for which you can go to jail; why in the name of any deity you might care about would we want to follow you down that path? As to 'the rest of the world', does that include all the countries with violent crime rates that dwarf ours? Governments that rule, instead of being ruled by the people? The UN that wants the commoners disarmed because it'll make them easier to give orders to? There are reasons that a lot of us tell 'the rest of the world' to go take a flying leap, and this is just one of them.

That right to arms we defend, our views on it, started from English common law(that which your government has trashed in many respects); that you've given it up, to me, does not say good things about you.

Which wound up leading to 
 Aw for fucks sakes dude. Gimme the excuse for killing innocent kids. It's always in the states! There is no excuse. NONE!
 Which rather pissed me off:
Ok, I'm a bit tired of being polite: where the effing HE#LL do you see me making an excuse for ANY MURDER, you clown?
And, again, you ignore the mass shootings and other killings in Europe, in Finland, in China and other countries; 'always in the states' my ass.

 Which caused him to accuse me of making it a slanging match, followed by
Do you cry cos most of us are deeply touched by these murders

 I read that, and came within a fraction of telling this simpleminded bastard exactly what I thought of him.  In detail.  With full use of Language Practice.  
Instead, I kept it clean but did tell him- in polite terms- what I thought of that crap and his thought processes.

While back I decided I was going to stop being nice about such garbage; I'd keep the language in bounds but I would no longer give any ground to seem nice, or 'reasonable' by their definition.  
It really pisses them off.

*I know.  But it does let me keep in touch with some people.  And piss off some who need it.

Can anyone find the statement from the Brady weenies (updated)

in which they said 'the real reason behind the assault weapons ban was to get people used to the idea of a gun being banned because of the name', or term, something like that?  Was said after the Clinton ban sunsetted.

I remember reading it, but can't find it right now.

Update: Kevin listed a couple of others in comments, including one that proves that Krauthammer, smart as he is, has a very nasty victim-disarmament impulse.  And, over at his place, he had this from Judge Kozinski:
 All too many of the other great tragedies of history - Stalin's atrocities, the killing fields of Cambodia, the Holocaust, to name but a few - were perpetrated by armed troops against unarmed populations. Many could well have been avoided or mitigated, had the perpetrators known their intended victims were equipped with a rifle and twenty bullets apiece, as the Militia Act required here. If a few hundred Jewish fighters in the Warsaw Ghetto could hold off the Wehrmacht for almost a month with only a handful of weapons, six million Jews armed with rifles could not so easily have been herded into cattle cars.
My excellent colleagues have forgotten these bitter lessons of history. The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed - where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

And BATFE and DoJ and Obama and everyone else connected with Gunwalker

just keep lying and covering-up.
Another weapon from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agency's controversial Operation Fast and Furious was recently recovered at a Mexican crime scene, CBS News has learned. Congressional investigators say the crime scene was likely where a recent shootout took place between reported Sinaloa drug cartel members and the Mexican military, in which Sinaloa beauty queen Maria Susana Flores Gamez and four others were killed.
 And they just somehow 'forgot' to mention this to Congress.
And I don't doubt they'll keep beating the horse of 'saving the children' and 'gun safety laws' in large part to distract from this and the other crap they've done.

Also, while Obama is shedding tears and demanding to do something:
Beneath the expressions of grief, sorrow and disbelief over the Connecticut school massacre lies an uneasy truth in Washington: over the last few years the Obama administration and Congress quietly let federal funding for several key school security programs lapse in the name of budget savings.
Government officials told the Washington Guardian on Friday night that two Justice Department programs that had provided more than $200 million to schools for training, security equipment and police resources over the last decade weren't renewed in 2011 and 2012, and that a separate program that provided $800 million to put police officers inside the schools was ended a few years earlier.
 Doesn't fit the narrative, does it?

If you believe ANYTHING coming from the NYEffingTimes

without checking every detail, you're a fool.  Or a willing dupe.
The NYT is not “perpetuating myths,” it is consciously and knowlingly lying with malice aforethought in an effort to push through various gun ban and confiscation laws which it greatly desires.
To pretend that they are making error in good conscience is the myth that needs to be destroyed here. None of the facts Carney so painstakingly lays out here – and this is only the ten thousandth, or ten millionth, time these facts have been carefully and publicly, pointed out – are hard to come by. In fact, if you are honest, they are impossible to avoid.
The NYT is not honest. It knows full well the truth of the matter, and it knows full well that it tells lies rather than the truth.

Liberal 'courage' from a college professor(Erik Loomis is the clowns name):
Blame someone for something they didn't do, and call for their death.
Insult people who repeat your statement.
Claim you didn't mean what you wrote("Death isn't necessary, imprisonment for life is").
Talk about how brave you are for facing the 'right-wing intimidation effort'.

You know that saying "When seconds count, the police are minutes away"?
“Police and other first responders arrived on scene about 20 minutes after the first calls.”
 Too much distance, too many things going on; I've spent most of my life around LE, working with/around cops.  Most are good people doing the job, but you cannot count on them being right there when you call for help.

Clinton claims she can’t testify for Congress on Thursday because she fell down over the weekend and got a concussion. Maybe so, but thus far no one’s seen a medical report. What’s more, it’s the second time Clinton has put off crucial congressional testimony about the murder of a U.S. ambassador and three other U.S. officials by Islamist terrorists in Benghazi, Libya, last Sept. 11. The previous time, she had more pressing business, tasting wine in Australia and checking up on East Timor.
It looks like avoidance of responsibility to preserve her own political viability.

On the "Why are gun bigots, hoplophobes and Democrats so violent?" front,
On Sunday, we reported that liberals on Twitter called for the murder of NRA members. One of those making the calls was identified Sunday as John Cobarruvias, a blogger, Democratic precinct chairman in the Houston area and a member of the Texas Democratic Executive Committee.
“Can we now shoot the #NRA and everyone who defends them?”
he tweeted.

After reading about the tweets on another site, Yvonne Larsen noticed a familiar name.
“Among the selection of tweets advocating for the murder of NRA President Keene and all NRA members was a name familiar to me; probably familiar to many readers of Houston’s Liberal blog sites,” she wrote at Big Jolly Politics.
Larsen said she “pasted a screen shot from the Freedom’s Outpost story in case NASA employee and Democrat Precinct 699 Chair John Cobarruvias of the Houstonblog Bay Area Houston tries to delete his tweet.”

 Yeah, it's an uphill climb.  Couple of days ago a couple of guys, one from England, one Ireland, insisted how peaceful and non-violent it is over there with handguns banned, etc.  So I posted links to Brit news sites talking about the huge rises in violent crime in general and crimes involving firearms(up to and including subguns and grenades, let us remember).  The response?  "I don't think we have a problem."  "That stuff happens in America, do you know how bad you look to the rest of the world?"  Etc.  Screw the facts presented, "I don't believe it."

Oh, and I was informed that being unwilling to agree with them and calling them on the matters was being insulting, starting a slagging match*, etc.

Yeah, liberals and progressives LOVE minorities;

as long as they belong to the right party. Otherwise,
Let's remember, these are the same people who called Powell a house negro(when the didn't use the nastier word), who slimed Condoleezza Rice in horrible ways, yet claim to be the most loving, kind, welcoming people around.

Screw the bigoted crapheads.

Yeah, there are resemblances to Stalin's Mouthpiece

and a bunch of our current crop of SEFR*.

How many of these clowns have been caught slanting new, editing video or audio, flat-out lying?  Over and over, usually in service to a politician or political view(or both).

Duranty would be proud.

A fine response to the French socialists:
 The prime minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, described Depardieu's behaviour as pathetic and unpatriotic at a time when the French are being asked to pay higher taxes to reduce a bloated national debt.
"Pathetic, you said pathetic? How pathetic is that?" Depardieu said in a letter to the weekly newspaper le Journal du Dimanche.
"I am leaving because you believe that success, creation, talent, anything different must be sanctioned," he said.
Seems the socialists are outraged that a bunch of people who've succeeded are taking the option of moving out of 'Punish The Rich' France(kind of like Maryland and other states here) rather than pay the "We won't let you keep what you earned" taxes.
 "Who are you to judge me, I ask you Mr Ayrault, prime minister of Mr Hollande? Despite my excesses, my appetite and my love of life, I remain a free man," Depardieu wrote.
First, I'd say that those 'excesses, appetite and love of life are PART of being a free man, and nothing to apologize for;
Second, I'd still like to know of the President of France, rich bastard himself, is paying the 75% tax?  Or is there some way out of it for the 'more equal than others' bastard?

Let's remember, while Bloomberg & Co. are lecturing us

about the need to be unarmed(while surrounded by police and private armed guards), Bloomberg is the jerk who told the elderly to turn off their a/c during a bloody hot summer because 'the room will cool down quickly when you turn it back on', while he had city employees build a frame in which to mount a room a/c so it could be set up in his cars' window, because 'Mayor Bloomberg doesn't like getting into a hot car.'

And then you get to his hypocrisy on food, while he stuffs himself on what he lectures others not to eat.

And note that bit in the first food link, public safety people being laid off, but Hizzoner adds cooks to the mansion payroll.

That anyone listens to this hypocritical little socialist at all is due to the media and a bunch of nanny-state jerks who love having a billionaire mayor pushing their line.
