The Devil You Know

Wed, 11/11/2020 - 12:26

" ...Nancy Pelosi does not have the votes to remain as Speaker of the House." [More]

Look for someone more competently ruthless and less drunk.

What We've Got Here Is ... Failure to Communicate

Wed, 11/11/2020 - 12:17

 A Holt High School student had an unloaded handgun and a magazine with one round of ammunition in his backpack Tuesday morning. [More]

What's that say about public education, when a teenager can't even read a pictorial "No Guns" sign?

 History scholar seeks to reclaim medieval period from white supremacists - Middle Ages were not ‘a predominantly white culture’ [More]

True, in every place but unconquered areas of Europe... And why single out one race for being provincial in that era,  unless there's a revisionist agenda at play?

Funny, this Ho doesn't call Mongol conquerors "yellow supremacists"...

There When You Need 'em?

Wed, 11/11/2020 - 11:57

Reminder: if you live in #VA07 you need to know that Rep. Spanberger just found 14,000 votes for herself on a flash drive when she was behind in her race. Totally normal. Nothing to see here. Who doesn’t have ballots on a missing flash drive, right? [More]

I'm unfamiliar with VA voting law and procedures-- without physical, auditable ballots with unique numbers that could be matched against the website tallies, how would fraud work?

Missing an Important Distinction

Wed, 11/11/2020 - 11:41
I take exception with the "modern era" finding "that relative black homicide rates increased with relative black gun ownership." [More]

Ownership is a legal and moral term. I submit that a comprehensive study will reveal that the majority of guns used in such homicides are possessed, but not owned. 

When even "our side" doesn't get that, it lets "their side" group all of us in with the aberrations.

Journalists for Censorship

Wed, 11/11/2020 - 11:22

Key detail in this @NYMag story on the pro-censorship movement inside NYT by its own employees: NYT tech reporters were angry that the anti-censorship posture of NYT editors would impede their campaign to pressure Silicon Valley to censor more robustly  [More]

The DSM, doing what it does best... And remember, with "progressives," every day is Opposite Day.

Violent People, These 'Commonsense Gun Safety' Folks...

 Andrew Cuomo on President Trump: 'If I wasn't governor of New York, I would have decked him. Period.' [More]

Jeez, talk about advancing a hot-headed Mafioso stereotype...

And "Biden says he would 'beat the hell' out of Trump if in high school."

Reality demonstrates such an attack would warrant an armed response. And remember, when they talk about doing things to Trump, who they really mean.

Now come on, give 'em your guns.

Popularity Contest

Wed, 11/11/2020 - 10:58

 “The Legislature has created a regulatory scheme that prevents people from buying handguns that are widely available and popular in the free market outside of the State ... California’s new and expanded handgun ban is unconstitutional because it prevents law-abiding people from purchasing the common, modern firearms they have a right to under our Constitution.” [More]

If popularity is the issue, federal bans on new technology will forever deny it to us. And precedents have been upheld that the availability of alternatives for "self-defense" can be used to deny what is currently available.

"Common use" was intended to cover "ordinary military equipment [that] could contribute to the common defense.” 

Wake me when somebody with the resources fights that legal battle.

Yes, I know, any affiliation with the newsraper of record should raise an eyebrow, so take this as just another resource and heed the caveats that estimates and breakdowns "might be off."

 “Look, we’re going to be the bad guys in this, the police department. They’re going to be mad at us over this, and we’re fine with that. I just want to make sure everybody understands that..." [More]

Funny, how with all the "Defund the Police" sentiment going around, this guy seems to welcome the prospect of alienating citizens.

Wed, 11/11/2020 - 10:23

Record Amount of Gun Control Legislation Introduced on First Day of Bill Pre-Filing for 2021 Texas Legislative Session [More]

They won't be the only ones. Look for a full-scale state and federal assault come January if the presidential election goes the establishment's way. And look for a "gun-free zone" mass shooting with a "weapon of war" to weaken a critical mass of "Republican resolve."

For the Greater Good of Justice!

Wed, 11/11/2020 - 10:15

Owner of SUV spray-painted with racist and homophobic graffiti facing insurance fraud charges - Swastikas, the N-word, KKK and profanity against Black Lives Matter were spray-painted all over the car.  [More]

Imagine that.

And a New York courts just let him out two-and-a-half weeks ago on two "illegal" (sorry, "undocumented"!) handguns and other charges? Let's see-- at 18, he could make bail and afford a BMW. Yep, sounds like one of the "underserved" and "disenfranchised" to me.

Well, That's Not Good

 "The defendant purchased the rifle for Mr. Rittenhouse to use. Mr. Rittenhouse was 17 years old at the time and, therefore, was not legally able to purchase the rifle for himself. The defendant was aware of this fact," the criminal complaint said. [More]

Of course, that has nothing to do with whether or not Kyle committed murder or acted in self-defense. This is about optics.
