It's Still a Prior Damn Restraint

Fri, 02/19/2021 - 10:06

 The Gun Owner Privacy Act protects the right to keep and bear arms by preventing the Feds from collecting data to monitor and log gun ownership in America. This legislation will give Americans legal recourse and the ability to sue the Feds and collect damages for records illegally stored. [More]

We weren't promised that with NICS?

And that brings up another point: The grabbers have for years been trying to push through a "Background Check Completion Act" that would eliminate the requirement to allow the transfer to proceed after three days of dithering. That means a "delay" could be indefinite, without triggering the appeal process.

Those who would tell us a deal with the devil is the only way forward always act shocked, shocked when the deal is "altered."

As for Rep. Greene, good for her but pardon my cynicism at her being able to actually get anything done with her own party treating her as toxic. 

And, of course, as long as the argument is about how to dress up a prior restraint, you'll note nobody but nobody, be it "staunch defender of the Second Amendment" politicians or rice bowl gun groups, is bringing up the one system that would make data collection impossible.

Ignorance is Not Bliss

Fri, 02/19/2021 - 09:39
Police said a mother is dead after her children found a gun inside her purse and accidentally shot her Monday inside their home in Cornelius. [More]This was presented as a counterpoint of sorts to my latest AmmoLand article.
Maybe it's me, but 25 and with five kids, along with a quick scan of a Facebook page that appears to be a match, strikes me as a person who made chronic problematic life choices to where it was just a matter of time and odds before catastrophe caught up. 
Anyone who thinks I'm saying this just to "blame the victim" is either idiotically or deliberately missing the point. I reject this tragic and utterly avoidable example as a valid rebuttal to responsible firearms ownership. If anything, it reflects on the "commonsense gun safety" subversives who demand avoidance and ignorance.

 When the new microstamping report was announced, Ammoland News reached out to a spokesperson with a simple question: “How many crimes have been solved, with perpetrators arrested, prosecuted and convicted, thanks to microstamping?” There has been no response so far, and Ammoland can find no reports or anecdotal evidence of a single crime that has been solved thanks to the technology. [More]


Some of us have been arguing that for years, but putting it in the form of a question like this and insisting on an answer is a good tack to take.

Pipe Dream

Thu, 02/18/2021 - 17:32

 The Mexican government called the top U.S. representative in Mexico on Wednesday to press for natural gas supplies as power cuts there have hit millions of residents. The White House said Thursday it was in discussions with Mexican authorities and Texas officials over Abbott's directive. Texas exports gas via pipeline to Mexico and via ships carrying liquefied natural gas (LNG) from terminals in Freeport and Corpus Christi. [More]

Wait a sec. I thought the Biden White House was against pipelines...

The Bad Place

[S]he called her past abortion the “best decision” she had “ever made.” In her latest comments made on February 5, she said the same thing. Abortion made her life a “million times better,” she said, while an unwanted baby can “f***ing ruin everything.” [More]

She seems healthy.

What is it about death cultists and their fixation on mandating that those of us who choose life be ordered vulnerable?

 Venezuela Turns to Privatization After Being Bankrupted by Socialism - After much pain and suffering, Venezuelan socialist leaders have conceded they cannot effectively run an economy. [More]

What's going on, a reverse Domino Effect?

Meanwhile, "our" politicians can't seem to collectivize things fast enough.

 Democrats introduce sweeping immigration bill with 8-year pathway to citizenship ...   the legislation would require a minimum of 10 Republican votes to defeat a Senate filibuster [More]

See why some of us have been harping on that last part?

In addition to the first part?

No thanks to idiots who don't know how to add?

Clark County backs McCarran name change to Harry Reid International Airport [More]

Who better than the terminally corrupt to represent Sin City?

I hope they spend a lot of money making the change.

That's when we start hammering on Wayne LaPierre calling him "a true champion of the Second Amendment" to trigger cancel culture frenzy. And maybe first bring up where he "praised" Barack Obama for being "light-skinned with no Negro dialect."

Zuckerberg said in July 2020: “I do just want to make sure that I share some caution on this [vaccine] because we just don’t know the long-term side effects of basically modifying people’s DNA and RNA … basically the ability to produce those antibodies and whether that causes other mutations or other risks downstream.

If that has not changed, what are "our leaders" doing?

That'll make up for those "travel losses"!

Which, of course, won't do Thing One for the health of America's tax cows...

Naturally, the standing army's Agin' Cajun wants the whole people disarmed. Or even his own people if they're not under direct deployment orders.
