Recently Read

I just finished I, Ripper by Stephen Hunter. It has a couple of surprises at the end I wouldn't want to ruin for you, but it's an enjoyable book. Also read short stories by Vernor Vinge, Cookie Monster, and Sarah Hoyt, The Big Ship and the Wise Owl. Both are definitely worth reading.

'Cuz what they have already has worked out so well for them...

White House Suggests More Gun Control To Address Surge Of Shootings in Chicago, Baltimore, And New York City
...and it's not they can acknowledge the real problem:Democrats in charge.

Also Josh, there isn't a gun control law that was ever passed truly intended to keep guns from the hands of criminals unless you define criminal as law abiding citizen.

Kansas - Carry On Wayward Son

I got this in my head and it won't go away. I think it was a episode of Supernatural that kicked it off but I'm down lately and it kinda fits the mood.

A Day Late

Read this.

H/T to Tam.

And them there is this...

H.R. 2546: To prohibit the sale of a firearm to, and the purchase of a firearm by, a person who is not covered by appropriate liability
While this bill probably doesn't have a hope in hell of passage go ahead and call your representative and tell them to oppose.

Here we go again...

...because the usual suspects will not get a hint.
The Full Text of H.R. 2380, Another “Universal Background Check Bill”
Call your Congress Critters.

Here's my problem with this "trade deal" the GOP and Obama...

...are intent on shoving down our throats. It's classified. It's secret. It's one of those "we have to pass it to see what's in it" things, and we know how well that turned out with Obamacare don't we.
GOP turns to Tea Party to win trade powers for Obama

Bill Whittle: Be Prepared: Defense Against Terror, Hoodlums, & Disasters

Usagi Yojimbo #145

After three years Stan Sakai has resumed the regular continuity of Usagi Yojimbo. If you like comics it is one of the best out there. If you like samurai comics it is the best there is.

Buy and enjoy.
