 Very few of those charged appear to be affiliated with highly organized extremist groups, and many are young suburban adults from the very neighborhoods Trump vows to protect from the violence in his reelection push to win support from the suburbs. [More]

Well, yeah, it's not like you get an Antifa Life Membership with a subscription to the magazine.

That's what we call "AP style."

We Have Only Ourselves to Blame

The War on Guns (Codrea) - Mon, 10/19/2020 - 14:30

 I am disappointedly surprised at the number of supposedly activist gun owners I see concluding the Honey Badger Intolerable Act is the fault of people "flaunting shouldering."

First off, as I quoted here, ATF itself advised a Colorado police department:

“[W]e have determined that firing a pistol from the shoulder would not cause the pistol to be reclassified as an SBR," ATF’s Firearms Technology Branch Chief replied. “Generally speaking, we do not classify weapons based on how an individual uses a weapon. FTB has previously determined that the firing of a weapon from a particular position, such as placing the receiver extension of an AR-15 type pistol on the user’s shoulder, does not change the classification of a weapon. Further, certain firearm accessories such as the SIG Stability Brace have not been classified by FTB as shoulder stocks and, therefore, using the brace improperly does not constitute a design change.”

Actually, that should be second off. I shouldn't need to tell anyone here what first off should be.
I really needed to restrain myself from indulging in a stream of obscenities in this one.

Make Trouble Find You

 If the left is willing to violently beat supporters of Donald Trump in a public setting when they don’t have power, how emboldened do you think they will be with the knowledge that the executive power to enforce the laws is in the hands of their allies? [More]

It seems to me the only places they do that are where they do enjoy political control. And 99% of the opportunities to do that could be eliminated if people who didn't have to be in those areas stayed out of them.

Because Telling Minorities You Have Lower Expectations for Them is Not Racist?

 Students will no longer be graded based on a yearly average, or on how late they turn in assignments.  [More]

Yes, why burden them with racist real-world expectations, especially when teachers union and administrative public trough feeders have enjoyed incompetence and nonperformance benefits for years?

Besides, how else will we build a militant sense of unearned entitlement?

Really Reaching for a 'Right-Wing' Boogeyman

The War on Guns (Codrea) - Mon, 10/19/2020 - 13:36

 The leader of an armed standoff with federal authorities at an Oregon wildlife refuge and his allies have exploited COVID-19 fears to build a dangerous network of militia members and other far-right factions, according to a new report by two groups that track extremism. [More]

You mean two leftists bedwetter groups templating off SPLC and ADL?

And what act of dangerous criminal violence has Ammon Bundy been convicted of again? Nothing, you say?

If anything, his caravan invaders advocacy makes him more a creature of the left in my book, or at least their useful idiot. I wonder how many of his reported 20,000 members know that?

expected better from Judy Thomas, too, and that's a pity.

What's This Country Coming To?

 Police say somebody in a small SUV started shooting at families Friday night, injuring seven people, including four kids. [More]

I'll go out on a limb here with the acknowledgment that I could be proven dead wrong: Tell me this was not gang-related, and probably committed by recent arrivals with cartel ties. That and shooting anyone this way is crossing the line, Chief Cost.

And while this will no doubt be fodder for those who want to disarm the rest of us, note the carnage could have been a lot more "successful" but for ""One of the workers at the stands saw this happen and returned fire at the vehicle," convincing the attackers to respond rationally by leaving.

What a Load of Poo

 A Key Largo man already facing felony charges over accusations he pointed a handgun at a group of people riding on a golf cart in his condo complex in May now faces an additional charge of owning a bump stock, a device that allows a semiautomatic rifle to rapidly fire almost like a fully automatic weapon.

Looks like there are plenty of "thanks" to go around...

How About 'Aiding and Abetting'?

The War on Guns (Codrea) - Mon, 10/19/2020 - 11:55

 The lawsuit accuses the city of harming local business owners by allowing the existence of Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP), a self-declared autonomous zone that was established and occupied by racial justice protestors from June 8 to July 1. [More]

See, presenting them as "racial justice protestors" injects editorializing into what is being presented as "news."

Let's hope the businesses don't become targets for revenge violence, or if they do, no one gets seriously hurt but the intimidation is enough to have the feds show they're serious about protecting federal court proceedings.
