One of those nights

that we have study materials

About damn time this started happening

A top FBI lawyer who fabricated evidence in a federal spy warrant against Trump campaign affiliate Carter Page is expected to plead guilty to federal charges brought by U.S. Attorney John Durham. Kevin Clinesmith, who is expected to admit to deliberately fabricating evidence in a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant application, used to spy on a former campaign affiliate of President Donald Trump, was a top attorney in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Office of General Counsel (OGC) and a key agency attorney under fired former FBI Director James Comey.

Before I hit bed, a Scene from the Range

In case you'd never noticed, 10mm tends to be a bit more expensive than, say, 9mm or .40S&W.  Yes, our price is higher than some places you'll find on Ammoseek, at least until you add in the shipping.

So your comments about 'gouging' and 'theft' were not appreciated.

PS: I saw one of your targets.  You need to go back to a .22 or 9 until you can manage to shoot smaller than dinner plate-size groups at 20 feet.

Sincerely, etc.

Now that the big news has been dealt with,

study materials are in

This is a serious 2nd Amendment win against Californicated

A federal appeals court on Friday overturned California’s ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines, ruling that the prohibition violates the Second Amendment

“Even well-intentioned laws must pass constitutional muster,” Appellate Judge Kenneth Lee wrote for the majority on the three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, adding that California’s ban “strikes at the core of the Second Amendment — the right to armed self-defense.”
There's a lot more, but it's too late and I'm too tired to get into it further.  Except to note that a bunch of California politicians, activists, and bureaucrats(yeah, I know, lots of overlap) are crapping their pants.

Well, she's a socialist, and camps are one of their big things

“Mandatory quarantine will apply to both new cases and, if necessary, close family members who might be at risk.”
Well, what would you expect from a country with an actual censorship office?

Tab clearing

"The peasants are revolting, please make them stop!"

Control freaks and idiots.

The Mayor of Chicago helped this happen.  I wonder how she'll try to blame it on Trump?
Also, if you think attacking a Ronald McDonald House is 'protesting' you're an idiot.

But it's all justified because 'protesting', right?

Worst Hitler Ever.

Idiot politicians and bureaucrats.  If you're running into their paywall, the important part:
In an email to employees sent out on July 31, the head of Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources not only reminded employees of Gov. Tony Evers’ mask order going into effect on Aug. 1, he also said that every DNR employee must wear a mask … even while on a teleconference.
The reason behind the directive is even sillier than the directive — if that’s possible:
“By wearing a mask while video conferencing with the general public, we visually remind folks that masking is an important part of navigating the business of natural resources during this tumultuous time,” Sheridan said.

"Screw standards and the kids, Race Is Everything!"

Been thinking about this for a while:

Drive throughs are dangerous places.

If you're in a line, leave enough space between you and the vehicle in front that, if you have to, you can get around them.

Keep an eye on what's happening around you.

Do you carry?  Be sure that, if you have to, you can draw it while in the seat.

Especially some places, this crap is going to get worse.

Chicago, barring a miracle, is so screwed

you can see the threads from here.

Armed bad guy gets shot.  Immediate BLM riot including vehicles to carry 'protesters' to and from, to ram storefronts, and trucks to carry away the loot.

They wind up raising bridges around the area to try to isolate it, and as of this morning apparently the cops are checking ID before letting people into that part of town.

And I'm sure there will soon be a statement from the Mayor blaming Trump and other states not having the kind of gun laws she wants.

Seattle, where it's not enough to be a Woman of Colour in a position of power,

you have to be one who does what she's told and shuts up, or else.

Wonderful, isn't it?

A: In Africa, you're on the menu.

'In addition, they were given no adequate advice by their guide on the particular risks that night of camping in that location.

'This is astonishing when the tents were set up at a location which we understand was known to be frequented by lions and other wild animals at night.'
Go to Africa to see the animals, shocked- SHOCKED!- that 'the area was known to be frequented...'

Bloody hell.

Yeah, mass shootings that don't adhere to the Approved Narrative™

don't get much publicity.  For some reason.

"You people in the suburbs, and you people in

Cousin Fuck County* don't have anything to worry about, you're stupid to talk about riots."
Yeah, right.

*Yes, this is how  a clown described anyone outside a major city worrying about such matters.  They just don't learn, do they?

If this much of the animal kingdom thinks you're tasty,

maybe you should stay away from things for a while.

If you're hearing some of the annual shrieking and whining about how evil is was to end the war in the Pacific

by dropping those two nukes, give them this.  It's a PDF of 'Thank God for the Atomic Bomb', and explains why.

And you might note to them that, due to findings after the surrender of the Japanese having more planes(being set up as kamikaze) and first-line troops(fully equipped) in the home islands, the earlier casualty count estimates had to be upped.  Drastically.

One note:
On the other hand, John Kenneth Galbraith is persuaded that the Japanese
would have surrendered surely by November without an invasion. He thinks
the A-bombs were unnecessary and unjustified because the war was ending
anyway. The A-bombs meant, he says, “a difference, at most, of two or three
weeks.” But at the time, with no indication that surrender was on the way,
the kamikazes were sinking American vessels, the Indianapolis was sunk
(880 men killed), and Allied casualties were running to over 7,000 per week.
“Two or three weeks,” says Galbraith.

Two weeks more means 14,000 more killed and wounded, three weeks
more, 21,000. Those weeks mean the world if you’re one of those thousands or related to one of them. During the time between the dropping of the
Nagasaki bomb on August 9 and the actual surrender on the fifteenth, the
war pursued its accustomed course: on the twelfth of August eight captured
American fliers were executed (heads chopped off); the fifty-first United
States submarine, Bonefish, was sunk (all aboard drowned); the destroyer
Callaghan went down, the seventieth to be sunk, and the Destroyer Escort
Underhill was lost. That’s a bit of what happened in six days of the two or
three weeks posited by Galbraith. What did he do in the war? He worked
in the Office of Price Administration in Washington. I don’t demand that he
experience having his ass shot off. I merely note that he didn’t.

Good. Because when you try to invade someone's home,

you should be made to feel 'unsafe'.  Because you're a damned criminal.

Scene from the range

I spent yesterday dealing with a veritable frikkin' rainbow of people showing up to buy guns, buy ammo, practice, get advice on guns and ammo.

This  includes people from other states who were passing through, saw the sign, and "Maybe THEY have some 9mm/40/whatever!" and stopped in.  People with lots of different melanin contents and accents.

Those clowns insisting all gun owners are old, fat, white males are either hugely ignorant, or damned liars.  I suspect a mix, but I know a lot of them are liars.

And Biden just announced(again) he wants to ban 'assault weapons', whatever the hell he defines that as.  Oh yeah, that's going over well.
