The Man Who Would Be King by Rudyard Kipling

Die Trying by Lee Child

The Last Centurion by John Ringo

I got the Kipling off of Project Gutenberg. I've read Kipling's poetry but never his prose. No Excuse, but I'll tell you Kim is on the list and I'll be going back to Gutenberg again soon. Damn good read.

This is the second of Child’s Jack Reacher novels I've read. The first was good but slow. This one had a faster pace and I liked it a bit more. I'll read more by him at some point.

Then there is Ringo. I read The Last Centurion when it came out in 2008 and really liked it then. His points on the Left were on point then and with Hillary running again it is now timely once more. If you haven't read it do. The link above goes to the Baen page for the novel with the first nine chapters free. Can't beat that.

Regina Spektor - “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” - Official Video (From Kubo And The Two Strings)

The movie is excellent. I'd have to say it is my favorite movie of the year so far. I cried at the end.

I like Regina Spector's cover of ""While My Guitar Gently Weeps". I like Regina Spektor. I'll admit the original Beatles' version has an attraction as well.

In Germany...

In the wake of a 2002 massacre in eastern Germany's city of Erfurt, where a 19-year-old shot dead 16 people, Germany tightened its firearms ownership law several times. It established a federal weapons registry in 2013.

The law now requires tight regional council supervision of licensed hunters and sporting shooters, psychological suitability tests, proof of the need to own a weapon as well as weapons and munitions expertise.

The minimum age is 18. The latest figures show that there are some 1.9 million gun licenses issued to sporting shooters, hunters and collectors in Germany, and some six million legally registered weapons. The number of illegal weapons is speculative.

These are the policies our own progressives would love to implement, yet these laws do no good. Weapons still find there way into the "wrong hands". For gun owners, that would be terrorists and criminals. For Progressives the wrong hands are anybody but theirs.

SJWs Demand 'Deus Ex' Video Game Not Let Gamers Make 'Immoral' Decisions
That's what normal people do. Instead, these SJW grumps insist the rest of us conform to their world view. I say no, and if the producers of that game don't say the same I suspect they'll have a flop on their hands. Their choice.

Fact Checkers my...

Fact Check Sites Covering for Hillary on Guns
Too busy making a case for their chosen candidate to actually pay attention to what Hillary is saying.
“The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.”

The King of Las Vegas by John Van Stry

I picked it up on impulse and damn was it a good read. Reminds me a bit of Dead Easy by William Mark Simmons. I'll definitely be reading his other novels. Highly recommended.

...and had his finger not been on the trigger...

Detective accidentally shoots self as police pursuit ends in crash
Also the police knew who he was and could have picked him up later yet chose to pursue him through town. The crook wasn't the only one who put lives at risk.
