Complaint Seeks Secret Service Compliance with Hunter Biden Gun FOIA Request

Thu, 04/29/2021 - 17:08
The agency is charged with improperly withholding records it is required by Freedom of Information Act laws to produce regarding its role in the case of a gun belonging to Hunter Biden. [More]It really shouldn't be up to citizens to have to drag sworn law enforcement employees kicking and screaming into obeying the law...

Runcie Getting Chance at Constitutional Justice He Would Deny to Gun Owners

Wed, 04/28/2021 - 10:24


It would be ironic indeed, if Runcie is convicted, to note that as a felon, he will become a “prohibited person,” forbidden by “law” to possess the guns he would deny to those of us who aren’t trough-feeding perjurers. [More]

High Apple Pie in the Sky Hopes

Tue, 04/27/2021 - 14:38

As regulars here know, I'm on limited blogging until further notice. That said, several of you have asked me what I think about the Supreme Court taking on the carry case 2A activists are all excited about and the antis are screaming "end of the world" over.

I've been disappointed so many times before, this pretty much sums up my sentiments:

Like the sign says, change my mind. Because I'd really like my pessimism to be proven spectacularly wrong.

CRS Report Informs a Go-Along Congress on Planned Biden ‘Ghost Gun’ Ban

Thu, 04/22/2021 - 05:55


The report also provides some nebulous “justification” political talking points, like  “it appears that the use of unmarked ‘ghost guns’ in shooting sprees, shootouts with police, and other crimes have also increased,” along with some anecdotal incidents to emphasize the point. What it does not do is quantify the scope of the perceived “problem” or qualify how such a rule change will do anything more than infringe on the rights of those inclined to obey laws. [More]

But if you object, guess what that makes you...

'Community Standards' Strike Again

Wed, 04/21/2021 - 09:33


[More -- and NSFW warning if you click on/enlarge this]

I went to the DC Metropolitan Police Department Facebook page looking for a potential photo for an AmmoLand article I'm prepping for publication and came across this. Interesting, that FB said my wishing everyone a contemplative Bill of Rights Day violated its "community standards" within minutes of it being posted, yet this has been up for three days.

I wanted to get this posted before they take it down. I wonder if the Secret Service knows...?

Riot Act Reading

Tue, 04/20/2021 - 18:24

I know I said for the time being, as my wife recovers, I'm going to limit blog posts to article announcements and the like. I'm breaking my own rule here, but this is, after all, my blog. 

I just got done watching the pre-ordained Chauvin "guilty" verdicts and I saw something I considered curious about CBS News' go-to guy for their after-action discussion, Lorenzo Boyd, the University of New Haven's VP for Diversity and Inclusion and CDO. I wonder how many noticed what I did on his bookshelf: 

That would be The Marx-Engels Reader:This revised and enlarged edition of the leading anthology provides the essential writings of Marx and Engels--those works necessary for an introduction to Marxist thought and ideology.Like I said, I just find the good doctor's literary interests and CBS News' choice of him as the reasoned voice of urban justice a mite curious, especially in light of "trained Marxists" heading up Black Lives Matter.
Eh, I'm probably making something out of nothing. It's not like "our friends across the aisle" are getting more brazenly in-your-face about their intentions, is it?
And no, sorry, this doesn't mean I'm back to blogging as normal, so please continue to hold back on newslink tips. I probably will, though, as time permits, add occasional posts like this when I see something that I don't see anybody else commenting on and happen to have a couple minutes to spare.

‘Aggressively Centric’ McConaughey May as Well Be a ‘Leftist’ on the Right to Arms

Tue, 04/20/2021 - 11:20


Supposedly adult Americans exercising their right of self-determination vote for celebrities based on all they know about them—which is generally “informed” by scripted, directed, optimally angled, and lighted images projected on a screen, and on the gushing praise of publicists. That they would cede great powers based on professionally-manipulated illusions speaks more to starry-eyed childishness than anything else. [More]

Ultimately, it's citizenship malpractice that gives political power to stage props like this.

Watts’ Tweet Reveals Racist, Sexist Motivation to ‘Replace’ White Men

Mon, 04/19/2021 - 11:34


Watts’ tweet introduces another chilling motivation, “replacement theory.” And that’s doubly curious because the “political left” smears and tries to discredit citizens who object to the Republic being culturally terraformed for political power. [More]

The useful idiots believe it's all about "gun safety."

I'm Back. Sort Of.

Sat, 04/17/2021 - 10:59
At least she got a helicopter ride out of the deal...

About that family medical emergency: My wife was in the hospital, the neurological intensive care unit. She's home now. She suffered a stroke. The good news is, so far speech, motor skills, and vision appear unaffected and the prognosis is hopeful. 

She was outside pulling dandelions from the yard, and when she came in she suddenly was slammed with a headache she equated with a hammer blow, followed by excruciating pain. We went to the nearby Cleveland Clinic hospital. A CAT scan showed some bleeding and they airlifted her to the main campus where they have more specialists. 

An MRI and angiogram, and several days of tests, concluded it was a benign perimesencephalic subarachnoid hemorrhage. Say that five times real fast. They determined there is no active bleeding, and she was told it is unlikely to recur. I guess if you're going to have a stroke, she says, that's the kind to have.

What this means for me is, with her being on ordered taking-it-easy for a while, I get to confirm exactly how much she does around this place by assuming those duties myself. 

The result, at least for the interim, is that when I do find time for internet stuff, I'll need to focus exclusively on my articles. That means this blog is going to have to be limited to my article promotions and announcements. I'm just not going to be able to respond to email or social media inquiries and newslink tips, at least for the time being. So please, hold off while I figure out how much time I'll have for the necessary things and how to best apportion it.

I would like to thank those of you who, reacting to Monday's post, sent prayers, best wishes, and offers of help. It's gratifying to think that what I do resonates with a handful of my contemporaries. As you can imagine, it has been an intense past few days that included no small amount of frustration at being powerless to help her and fearing the worst. 

For what it's worth, I don't blame the dandelions and will not be demanding any laws.
