One more 7th evening,

and yeah, I'm ready to crash.  Here they are:

If the asshats running the Senate were honorable, and not trying to sneak crap in,

why would they do this?
As the Senate passed a gun control bill this week with fifteen Republicans siding with Democrats, Senator Rand Paul noted that no one had time to even read the legislation because it was “assembled in secret.”

“Unfortunately, this legislation was assembled as many are — in secret, absent well-placed leaks to journalists,” Paul tweeted, adding “There doesn’t appear to be a willingness or time provided to read, understand, debate or amend this bill.”
In a further interview Paul noted “They didn’t even give us the actual bill to vote on it. They gave us a blank piece of paper and said, ‘Vote on this and trust us as to what the legislation will be when it comes forward and trust that there’ll be an actual amendment process.'”

Lying, corrupt, anti-rights hacks.

Now that I've made my statement for the evening, it's time to ease down,

sit a bit, and distribute the current data models.

Off & on this afternoon and evening I've been watching some of the left lose

what little of their minds they have left.

I've been watching politicians who either forgot they took an oath, decided it wasn't important, or never intended to keep it.  Damn every one of them.

If there are serious attacks and arson and such, and that asshole Garland and his crack-brained boss try to downplay it, I don't think their party will like the results.

Some of the reactions to Thomas telling people "You don't get to choose not to obey the Constitution",

which is causing enormous amounts of hysteria and bullshit.
MRCTV host Brittany Hughes slammed Hochul’s point, responding, "And the only politicians at that time were men. Your point?"

"If Kathy Hochul's security detail doesn't set an example by switching to only using muskets first... then she can f--- right off," Washington Times columnist Tim Young tweeted.

Former Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller asked, "Will the criminals rampaging freely across New York be going back to muskets as well?" He then posed another question to Hochul’s point, "Also, out of curiosity, what medium is Hochul using to broadcast this message and did it exist in the 18th century?"

From part of Thomas's decision:
Thomas wrote, “the constitutional right to bear arms in public for self-defense is not ‘a second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees.’ McDonald, 561 U. S., at 780 (plurality opinion). The exercise of other constitutional rights does not require individuals to demonstrate to government officers some special need. The Second Amendment right to carry arms in public for self-defense is no different. New York’s proper-cause requirement violates the Fourteenth Amendment by preventing law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their right to keep and bear arms in public.”
Anticipating the reactions of the three justices who reflexively and predictably dissented (Will these people ever surprise us? Or is that just left to the conservative majority members?), Thomas’s historical recitation noted the ways that gun laws were misused, writing that even in the Dred Scott decision, “Chief Justice Taney … recognized (albeit unenthusiastically in the case of blacks) that public carry was a component of the right to keep and bear arms—a right free blacks were often denied in antebellum America.”

In other words, denying gun rights or creating a test that’s too onerous is racist.

That part's got to be making the leftists scream.

I'd suggest reading some of Alito's response to the three Justices having vapors over the decision.

And this bullshit from, among others the Do'J':
The DOJ also issued a concerning statement, again not saying that they would uphold the decision but saying they “disagree.”

Read USDOJ's statement on #Bruen and then ponder the fact that in the Senate gun bill the DOJ will fund the grants enabling the development and enforcement of "red flag" laws in state capitols. They are not interested in protecting your constitutional rights.

It isn’t up to the DOJ to disagree — it’s supposed to be an objective, non-political entity enforcing the law. They’re not supposed to be making political comment. Why are they commenting at all on this? And are they saying they won’t enforce the law or act in accordance with the decision?

Some point, the Do'J' is going to pay some real price for bullshit like this.  Hope I'm alive to see it.

So Pelosi blew a 0.082% two hours after the accident;

That sumbitch was drunk as hell.

PT, no problem, push things a bit as always do

Leave, bit tired, no problem.

Get home and sit a bit, and "Holy crap, do I have to get up?"

On the front of that bipartisan "Screw the 2nd Amendment and other rights" bill,

No, I haven't had time to try to read the damn thing.  Among the crap in it appears to be
If ATF decides to write a new letter, and declares 'Any selling of firearms is business', you'd have to have a FFL to sell something.  I'd bet this is them looking to kill gun shows.

Companies hiring would be able to run applicants through the NICS system.  Can you say 'violation of various things'?

All the money and support for red flag laws that ignore due process.

Yes, if this piece of shit were passed and signed, it'd be in the courts almost immediately, and it'd still be doing huge damage.

I swear a bunch of Stupid Party members want the Evil Party to stay in power.

This is actually pleasant to hear

The Supreme Court on Thursday issued a 6-3 decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, expanding gun rights for the first time in more than a decade.

The majority opinion, authored by Justice Clarence Thomas, held that New York’s “proper cause” requirement for obtaining a concealed carry license violated the Constitution because it “prevents law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their right to keep and bear arms.”

Ah, the lamentations of the leftists- including the three Justices- are sweet to hear.  And it's not just New York every state with this kind of crappy law is, appropriately, crapping in  outrage.

Someone on radio said that the People's Republic of NY is insisting they won't obey this; I wonder if the first suit is already being filed, or if they're just waiting for NY to actually violate it?

I should have a chance to try something out this weekend,

if I do I'll tell you about it.  In the meantime, I really need to do more cleaning.  The house isn't too bad, except for the worktable being kind of covered and I'm not sure where to put stuff.  And it's stuff I actually use.  Ah, I'll figure out something.

Now to some of the outdoor stuff before it heats up.

To the surprise of no one, this idiot* gun control bill

is crap, it won't make anybody safer, it pushes 'Red Flag' laws with no definitions, restrictions, or punishments for people who knowingly make false accusations, and there's a lot of fuzz in this pile of words to make it really dangerous to honest people.

As expected.

Yell at the congresscritters in the House, and yell at the Senate as well.  The chickenshit R's who're leaving office won't listen, the others just might.  Even if yours is a D, it can't hurt.

*Yes, I know, they're all idiotic

This is one of the verses that particularly stands out right now

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "Stick to the Devil you know."

The man was right.

Speaking of another bunch of bureaucrats who need to become unemployed,

Two questions:

1. Why in the hell does the National Institutes of Health have its own police department? What part of seeking “fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability” requires police power and guns? Are they going arrest that fundamental knowledge?

2. And why the hell does the NIH refuse to tell an arm of Congress — their boss — how many guns and how much ammo it has?

There are a LOT of agencies with their own police and/or SWAT teams, including the bloody Dept. of 'Education'.  Everyone involved in approving that crap should be fired for criminally overstepping their boundaries and wasting taxpayer money.

Remember the rape gangs in Britain,

referred to as 'grooming gangs', apparently because the truth bothered them?  Oh, more comes out.
The ring-leader of a notorious grooming gang in Rochdale was employed as a welfare rights officer at Oldham Council, a damning report has revealed.

A major report, commissioned by mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham, said police and the local council failed to protect some youngsters from sexual exploitation but concluded there was no official cover-up.

Because nobody gave an actual order, so officers and council who wouldn't do anything for fear of being called 'racist' were not an OFFICIAL cover-up.

Speaking of,
Despite “legitimate concerns” from police and the council in Oldham of the far right capitalising on the issue of grooming by predominantly Pakistani men, the authorities in the town, which suffered race riots in 2001, did not shy away from tackling the issue, the report said.

But the authorities did fail some children, the report concluded.

Well, no shit. Apparently they're still so worried that the 'far right' pointing out a disturbing fact that that's a bigger concern than children being raped.

Despite multiple concerns being raised about him and his arrest for the sexual assault of children, police failed to tell his employers.
I effing guarantee you it was the 'Someone might call us racist!' crap again.

(formerly)Great Britain, indeed.

Oh, holy shit, this just gets worse

That said, the latest news from the investigation into the shooting looks very bad for the law-enforcement officials responding to the scene. Tony Plohetski, an investigative reporter for the Austin-American Statesman, tweeted a picture showing police stationed outside the classroom where more than a dozen children were murdered. The officers, armed with rifles and at least one ballistic shield, were in the hallway near the classroom at 11:52 a.m.—58 minutes before they breached the locked classroom, and 19 minutes after the gunman entered the school. At 12:03 p.m. a second officer with a ballistic shield arrived, followed by a third a few minutes later.

“Investigators believe this is significant because it indicates they had more than enough firepower and protection to enter the classroom before they did,” wrote Plohetski. “Officers were growing impatient far sooner: ‘If there’s kids in there we need to go in there,’ one said on body camera video.”

And their chief is calling for more weapons because 'all we have are pistols'...

And on the dead scumbag, still lots of questions, one of my favorites being "Where the hell did the kid get the money?"

Putting this up mostly so I don't lose it

Tam said it was a very good piece on the problem with a number of the 'ban/restrict guns' arguments, and she was right.

First Father's Day since Dad died;

it's odd.  Not 'fall to your knees and grieve', but odd.  And his death date's next month.

Throw in health crap, and if it wasn't for the meds I'm taking I might get drunk.

I've got nothing

I actually want to talk about, maybe inspiration will strike later
