Hey, Colorado, you paying attention? You'd better.

The Outdoor Channel leaves Colorado.  As he notes, they're not a big business, but CO got a lot of promotion from them; what's losing that going to cost?  And
Obviously, part of this is due to our own commitment to the right to keep and bear arms, but it also reflects 3 lawyers' opinions that these laws are so poorly drafted and so designed to trap otherwise legal citizens into a crime (one of our attorneys referred to them as "flypaper laws") that it is simply too dangerous for us to film here.
If you think a lot of people don't pay attention to that, you're a fool.  Nobody wants to wind up in jail because some LE with hard-on for enforcement busts them on something that's either iffy or flat bullshit, but the way the crap is worded he can get away with doing it.

On to the People's Republic of Maryland:
New legislation is forcing gun manufacturing company Beretta to uproot and take their business elsewhere.
At the end is a fine example of the idiocy they're leaving behind:
One legislator stated: “Other than target shooting, the only other reason [for a semi-automic firearm] would be for self-defense… [Why would you need a] rifle that accommodates 20 rounds semi-automatic for deer hunting? … It’s only very infrequently that someone commits a crime with an assault weapon – why do you need one for self-defense?”
This one at least seems to recognize self-defense as something good; however, the rest of this...

Evidence of just how desperate Democrats are to make SOME kind of new restriction on our rights.
They'd hoped to shove their whole wish list through; now this.  keep yelling at the legislators.  Loudly.

And that's it for today at least.  More when there's time, whenever that is.

Tab clearing while I have a minute

Hey, he was doing abortions, so what's the problem with the homicides and stuff, right?

The new law that it advocated, indeed, is one of the most absurd specimens of jackass legislation ever heard of, even in this paradise of legislative donkeyism. Its single and sole effect would be to exaggerate enormously all of the evils it proposes to put down. It would not take pistols out of the hands of rogues and fools; it would simply take them out of the hands of honest men. The gunman today has great advantages everywhere. He has artillery in his pocket, and he may assume that, in the large cities, at least two-thirds of his prospective victims are unarmed. But if the Nation’s proposed law (or amendment) were passed and enforced, he could assume safely that all of them were unarmed.
That is from 1925.  And much thanks to Tam and  Roberta X for it.

What Columbia University considers a wonderful choice for professor: a domestic terrorist (communist, of course) involved in murder, robbery and plans for mass murder.

The People's Republic of New Effing York; where anything is an excuse to steal someone's guns.

That is one big damn spider.

Obama lies.  Again.

Because politicians are special and shouldn't have to obey the laws they pass.

Just like those fucking 'Democrats CARE' bumper stickers, taken to a new level.

Yeah, it's about crime, right...
"It had begun to do what we wanted it to do, which is to drive down the number of these guns over time," she said.

Not much today;

it's wet, and chilly, and I ache.  And things to do, so probably a bit thin on posting the next couple of days.
I will leave you with three things:
Three guys from WWII of the 'need a custom jockstrap' variety.

When the ACLU has a problem with your anti-gun-ownership bill, you've got problems.

More on the idiot 'clips vs. magazines' politician.

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

And the clown politicians in CT follow the New York model:

The press officer for the Connecticut House Republicans confirmed that the bipartisan bill formalizing these proposals will go directly to a vote tomorrow (Wednesday, April 3) under emergency certification, which precludes referrals to committees and public hearings. That means nobody gets to raise any objections, such as pointing out that the guns Adam Lanza used were registered to his mother. She qualified to own firearms under the old rules and there's no reason to believe the new restrictions would have barred her ownership of guns in any way.
These bastards really don't like having to listen to what the voters think, or giving the voters a chance to find out what the hell they're doing, do they?

Also, I'm curious how they intend to register magazines that don't have serial numbers.  Are the going to tell the cops to start engraving them?  Or do they just want another way to throw people in jail?
You'll notice that violations of the new Connecticut gun laws all seem to be felonies. Making something a felony is a modern legislator's way of puffing out his or her chest and saying, "I'm really serious." But, while there's no denying that being convicted of a felony carries serious inconveniences in penalties and legal restrictions, we're long past the point where making an act a felony stigmatizes it in any way. Harvey Silverglate famously estimated that Americans commit Three Felonies a Day in the course of going about their normal business. Connecticut residents, at least gun owners, may have to assume they've upped their daily felony allotment to four and just extend care to not be caught to more areas of life.
I'll bet Biden and Obama and Bloomberg have been spending money and influence like water down a drain on these clowns; I wonder just how much their integrity and honor(assuming they had any) sold for?

It appears Cuomo has problems

Between his ears, as well as the others.  All for wearing a Remington cap at the gate:
But once inside the Mansion, Tenney, a lawyer and mother of a 21-year-old Marine, was surrounded by a number of nervous Cuomo aides including Larry Schwartz, the governor’s secretary, who feared she’d defiantly put on the cap during Cuomo’s remarks. ”Larry put his hand on Claudia’s arm and said, ‘Are you going to wear that during the breakfast because if you are, we’re going to have to ask you to leave’,’’ said the witness …”
Note that this is a elected rep of a district being told she'll have to leave a breakfast visit at the Governor's house if she wears the hat; which, let us remind the bastard does not belong to him...
Well, let's rephrase: they'll 'ask her to leave'.  My question is, what if she did, and wouldn't?  Going to call the cops on her?  Oh, that'd go over REAL well.

Tesla is apparently run by bigots and hoplophobes.  Fucking idiots, actually.
Industry sources suggest that the reveal was supposed to take place one week later, at the NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway, but with the announcement that the National Rifle Association would be the title sponsor of that race, the federal government decided to move the announcement to Martinsville. "We aren't sure how many fans would be friendly toward alternative energy at an event sponsored by the NRA," said the source, "and we have to assume a large percentage of them will be armed."
Allow me to  inform you of two things, Mr. Source:
NASCAR fans aren't bothered by electric cars; they're bothered by crooked jerks using taxpayer money.  Build the thing on your own dime, and it works, they'll be interested.
Second, by your bigoted comments about the millions of members and supporters of the NRA, you've revealed what kind of fool you are.  So piss off.

"Who owns Obama would properly be who offers the most

when he thinks he needs it.  However,

Matt Bennett of Third Way wishes Congress could vote in secret because then he could buy votes without us nasty peasants getting in the way.

Screw you, Bennett, you want secret votes by government go to Cuba or the PRC.  Or some other socialist paradise.

Among the ways we're being screwed by the ethanol mandate.

Guy asks Kate Upton to the prom;

Upton responds with class, and that freaking progressive nutcase Marcotte can't stand it.  Joined in her search for female victimhood by Kat Stoeffel(whoever the hell she is).

Let's see, guy asks her out, she politely says 'no', and that means the guy victimized her... these people are so full of shit they should be standing in the fields to fertilize the crops.

Of course, this fits nicely with progressives crapping on blacks who don't follow the leftist line in all things.

This just in: ignore a lot of information and you, too, can blame white males for EVERYTHING!!!

At this point, I think Carrey talks out of his ass because his brain is so far up it.
No one in my employ is allowed to carry a large magazine and NO ONE IS ASKING ANYONE TO GIVE UP THEIR RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS, though it is in the vested interests of those who profit by gun sales to make it seem so.
And those who tell the dancing monkey that that's all he is?  Well, we're BULLYING!
Especially when we call him for the liar he is.

CO State Rep. Diana DeGette (D, of course) is such a- well, read it:
“The Congresswoman has been working on a high-capacity assault magazine ban for years, and has been deeply involved in the issue; she simply misspoke in referring to ‘magazines’ when she should have referred to ‘clips,’ which cannot be reused because they don’t have a feeding mechanism,"
If you're wondering what the hell is going through her mind, go read the whole piece.  It's worse than you may think.

And something I need to pay more attention to getting word out on: the current E-Mail Postal Match.

When we win, they win. When we lose,

Thoughts from Mr. James on what he's heard from folks in Europe.  Short version: They're hoping- somewhat desperately- we win and stop the gun bigots and hoplophobes.

Chris Matthews is a tool of the first order

Which was already known; just that deciding to change the definition of words, and the history, this was really points it out.

Apparently being a terrorist who helps murder people and hates America is just what you need to get a position at a university.

'Communists, old and new, fit a pattern; only leftists surprised'

Colorado losing lots of competitions; for some reason people don't want to put themselves at risk of being arrested due to those idiotic new laws.
Add this to hunters cancelling trips, and the businesses moving to better places, and the economic footprint alone is going to be very painful.

How many feminists does it take to kill an April Fool's Day post?

"That's not funny."

Want. might beat the Remington loads

Years of research and development have gone into these highly effective 12 gauge shells that can turn even Joe Biden’s double barrel shotgun into an instant anti-aircraft platform. Specially formulated propellant is capable of launching 9 pellets of depleted uranium rounds up to 1 km straight up into the air. With accurate shot placement, this armor piercing buckshot will disable vital systems on modern military drones. At minimum, the force of impact will disable navigation systems, but in over 60% of our field tests, the drones were incapable of remaining airborne after contact with our Anti-Drone Loads.

Why yes, I do

The EPA demonstrates once again they don't care what damage they do,

as long as they can force people to do what the clowns want:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency could soon issue a final ruling that aims to force oil companies to replace E10, gasoline mixed with 10 percent ethanol, with E15.

They don't give a rats ass the damage this would do all the way down the line.

That 'Bureaucrat, rope, lamppost' sticker is sounding better and better.

Of course it's from a college, and of COURSE a friggin' 'Diversity Committee' is involved.

A microaggression is a brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignity, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicates a hostile, derogatory, or negative slight or insult toward people of non-dominant identities. [Smith College]
Translation: ANYTHING said by ANYONE that makes ANY member of a protected species(women, homosexuals, muslims, Democrats and communists, etc.) feel uncomfortable or unhappy or hurts their feelings now has a Proper Name So We Can Deal With It.

I have to admit I don't kn ow who Duncan Sheik is,

just that- from this- he's another celebritute trying to get some publicity by threatening someone and insulting them.  And getting all upset when the threat is taken seriously.

Both from commenter Henick and Jennifer, got a link to this blog: The Law of Self Defense.  Haven't had time to check more than a couple of the entries, but seems to be some very good 'this is something you probably wouldn't want to do or say' information.

Hey, they're lucky; at least these cops didn't kick in the doors

and shoot the dogs.

Should D.C.'s food laws try to protect consumers and public safety? Or should they try to protect brick-and-mortar restaurants from competition?

D.C.'s restaurant lobbyists, along with many local politicians and bureaucrats, seem to think the government's job is to save the delis and diners, bistros and brasseries from the scourge of falafel trucks, barbecue buses and weenie wagons.

Why don't we trust most media?  Because CBS referred to this as  hundreds of mischievous teens:
What actually happened was that a mob of black thugs took part in an apparently pre-planned attack on mostly white shoppers in a mostly white and wealthy neighborhood.
Related, from Second City Cop:
All the local media outlets had to cover it - there were too many witnesses downtown to brush it under the carpet the way they did the entire summer of 2011 and early part of 2012. The Channel 2 website had over 3,500 comments at last count. National headlines were made everywhere.
We particularly enjoyed the comment by the woman who said she pays $17,000 a year in property taxes. You're getting ripped off lady. And Rahm? This is the sort of person who can afford to leave the city when it gets this bad. We're sure there are thousands more. You're going to be remembered as Mayor Murder - and the victim will be the City of Chicago.

There was a vote in the Senate the other day:
All Democrats an Independants, for some reason...

Why don't we trust that Obama respects all the Amendments?
“If you think that checking someone’s criminal record before he can check out a gun show is common sense, you’ve got to make yourself heard.”
There's apparently some argument that he misspoke and actually mean 'buy a gun at'; considering his past actions and words, I think he meant exactly what he said.

And why don't we trust most of the federal LE clowns?
No illegal explosives were found and no arrests were made, but considering the unprecedented arsenal stocked at one of the locations, the agents considered confiscating Myers’ weapons. “The idea at one of the locations was to take firearms, but they did not do that,” an ATF spokesperson said, according to
Did you catch that? Even though there was nothing remotely illegal going on, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Very Large Fires considered confiscating firearms anyway. Apparently only a senior agent had the brains to suggest they can’t steal property.
Or maybe the local Sheriff had to clue them in.

And we know we can't trust what we read about firearms in most media; they say things like a .323-caliber bolt-action rifle and A loaded 12-gauge shotgun was found in the glove compartment of the Honda Civic Lanza drove to the school with two magazines containing 70 rounds of Winchester 12-gauge shotgun rounds.
Hey, journalists; can you at least TRY to make an effort to find out what the hell you're writing about?
I know, silly question.

Another company leaving Colorado, and more gun-related business going somewhere else.
I wonder if those politicians trusting Bloomberg money and Obama influence to protect them are wondering if they shouldn't have listened to that clown Senator who told them 'don't read the e-mails or answer the phone calls, they're just telling you not to do this'?

Yes, it's started; yes, it's coming from a Democrat

The first effort emerged in Texas. Legislation proposed by Dallas Democratic Rep. Yvonne Davis would remove any sheriff or law enforcement officer who refuses to enforce state or federal laws

What's more, it would remove any elected or appointed law enforcement officer for simply stating or signing any document stating that they will not obey federal orders.

St. Louis mayor Francis Slay: fine with wanting to hand sovereignty over to the UN, not so good with answering questions about it.

Founders vs. Biden & Co.

"Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American... The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state government, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people" (Tench Coxe)

"I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for few public officials." (George Mason)

"The Constitution shall never be prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms" (Samuel Adams)

"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence ... From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that is good" (George Washington)
Windy notes that the above is considered apocryphal; so here's one that's not:
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government


“And lastly, but not least, the Assault Weapons ban and the limitation on the size of magazines, let me say this as clearly as I can: this is just the beginning. We believe that weapons of war have no place on our streets. That’s the message that the retired admirals and generals have spoken to us about. The comment one of them used was: if you want to learn how to use a semi-automatic weapon, join the United States military, but these are weapons of war, and we believe there’s no rational reason why someone would need a clip that can hold fifteen, twenty, thirty, one-hundred bullets, one-hundred rounds. We have to do more and we will do more.”  (Joe Biden)

Please note a couple of things in particular:
...if you want to learn how to use a semi-automatic weapon, join the United States military...
Got that? Now SEMI-AUTO firearms are 'weapons of war.
And he makes it plain that most standard-capacity magazines are too big to suit him.
No trust in the people, a serious fear and loathing of the commoners possessing arms; reminds me of something...*

"If I could have banned them all - Mr. And Mrs. America turn in your guns - I would have!" (Senator Diane Feinstein)

"When we got organized as a country, they wrote a fairly radical Constitution, with a radical Bill of Rights, giving radical amounts of freedom to Americans, it was assumed that Americans who had that freedom would use it responsibly. When personal freedom is being abused, you have to move to limit it." - (Bill Clinton)

"Gun registration is not enough. Waiting periods are only a step. Registration is only a step. The prohibition of private firearms is the goal." - (Janet Reno)

*"Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA, ordinary citizens don't need guns, as their having guns doesn't serve the State." - Heinrich Himmler

A serious kick in the balls is needed by the clowns in the DoD

responsible for this crap.
Assuming they have any.

Speaking of clowns with no balls, let's talk about that idiot Toure' and his slanders against someone he's not fit to sniff the dirty underwear of.

Want to improve things?  Close down every damned one of these fusion centers.
In trying to clear up the ‘misconceptions’ about the conduct of fusion centers, Arkansas State Fusion Center Director Richard Davis simply confirmed Americans’ fears: the center does in fact spy on Americans – but only on those who are suspected to be ‘anti-government’.
And if you ask who decides, and how, they'll put YOU on the list.
