Have a friend who insists "Obama hasn't done anything to attack gun ownership,

so why is the NRA always scaring people about Obama? It's just to raise money!" Pointing out Obama's past words and actions apparently doesn't count because "He hasn't actually DONE anything on this as President", etc. Except
In a rash attempt to deflect attention away from himself and his own irresponsibility, Holder let Congress know that the Obama administration is still working toward the day when it can reinstate former President Bill Clinton’s so-called “assault weapons” ban. According to Holder:
This administration has consistently favored the reinstitution of the assault weapons ban. It is something that we think was useful in the past with regard to the reduction that we’ve seen in crime, and certainly would have a positive impact on our relationship and the crime situation in Mexico.
It’s difficult to follow Holder’s logic here, but it goes something like this

Sent this to the friend; wondering how he'll respond.

The CSGV also dances in the blood of attackers, if they think they can twist it to make the actual victim look like a bad guy.

A .380 revolver? Something new to check out.

Across the pond: "You don't want your daughter being injected with this contraceptive device? Too bad, we think it's a good idea so screw you."

Let's see... costs same as a Volt, gets 50 mpg, 0 to 60 in 4.5? Damn, I want to see one of these!

Loud bang on a window just now; happily, unlike that dove a few years back, this bird didn't crash through the damn thing.

Crap, this sounds like something out of Hot Fuzz:
As the probationary officer from Sussex Police searched for suspects, the camera operator radioed that he had seen someone “acting suspiciously” in the area.

But he failed to realise that it was actually the plain-clothed officer he was watching on the screen, according to details leaked to an industry magazine.

The operator directed the officer, who was on foot patrol, as he followed the "suspect" on camera last month, telling his colleague on the ground that he was "hot on his heels".

The officer spent around 20 minutes giving chase before a sergeant came into the CCTV control room, recognised the “suspect” and laughed hysterically at the mistake.

Oh, for bleep's sake...

You may already be a member!

When I start seeing machinegun nests at the local bank and Blackwater teams around ATM's, THEN I'll start taking Anti's claims of 'spiraling gun violence' seriously. I have no plan, however, to let myself be as vulnerable as the Mexican people though.

Dave Perry: a gun bigot who hits ALL the talking points.
And Perry? Fuck you.

You might remember all the 'food pyramid' crap over the years, with it becoming, a couple of decades ago, 'Stop eating meat and eat lots of carbs', etc. Now... The excuse for the change is "There's too much salt", not a word about what so much carbs does to a lot of people.

Firehand. This is my first visit to you place. Saw your "Patches, we need patches!" comment, earlier, at my place, and then noted your link to that post in your most recent post (and thank you for that).

Just wanted to let you know I stopped by, and that I'll bookmark you for reading.

Thanks again, Firehand.

Hot Phuzz?

The same guys did a follow up that's set in the US: "Paul"

I think it's better than phuzz

The shops in Ireland are full of "The Guard", haven't watched it yet, but certainly intend to.

Paul trailer:

and Ice Age 4 comes out this summer, I need to borrow a child for that, we were the only couple without one in the Cinema for 3. I still got a sharp elbow for laughing at Scrat escaping from domesticity though.
