A Win for the Good Guys...

FOID (Firearm Owners Identification Card) Ruled Unconstitutional In Illinois
...but short lived, I think. It's a District Court and Illinois.

They want all our guns...

...and they won't be satisfied until they get what they want.

Recently Read

It's been awhile since I last posted what I've read. This is what I'll admit since the last post.

Rewrite by Gregory Benford
A man dies and awakens in his sixteen year old body with a chance to live his life over again and again and again. Turns out he is not alone and some try to alter history to suit themselves. Well they all do but the bad guys push toward a nihilistic endgame. The hero resists them. We also get Robert Virginia Heinlein as side characters. I was initially reminded of Ken Grimwood's Replay, but the tone is different and really very different. It's been a long time since I picked up a Benford book. I may have to backtrack and read more. Highly Recommended.

Slayer by Kiersten White
I read somewhere that Fox was planning on rebooting Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I hope not. Modern Hollywood can't avoid f**king these things up. This book takes place in the Buffyverse of old kinda. It takes up after the 8th and 9th Season from the Dark Horse Comics. Buffy is there but very much a side character. It tells the story of the remaining Watchers and the last girl to gain the powers of Slayer before the end of magic. In a lot of ways it's routine but it was a fine light read. It you are a Buffy fan you will like it. Recommended.

The Sky Blue Wolves by S. M. Stirling
The last, maybe sorta, of the Amberverse Series. It wraps of the story adequately. It is standard Stirling which means excellent. Very well done but kinda abrupt ending. I think it was time to move on and Stirling realized it. It is a must read for fans of the series. If you haven't read any of the series start with the first. Fortunately for us, Stirling has moved on to new things.

Black Hats by Max Allan Collins
Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson versus Al Capone in New York City. A very nice what if novel of the 1920's. As I read I pictured Sam Elliot as Wyatt Earp. Highly Recommended.

The Storm by David Drake
The sequel to Drakes take on Arthurian Legend in The Spark. The older Drake gets the smoother he gets. Highly Recommended.

Voices of the Fall, edited by John Ringo and Gary Poole. this is the latest in Ringo's Zombie series. Ten short stories by authors such as John Birmingham, Dave Freer, Michael Z. Williamson, Sarah Hoyt. There is one by Ringo but it isn't the best of the bunch. I really like to see where Birmingham take his character in a novel. all of the stories are good. A few are excellent. Highly recommended.

Right Wing Terrorist?

The Left is all for blaming the Shooter in New Zealand on Trump and the Right, but When you look at his manifesto it seems he leans left far more than right plus there's that pro-gun control anti-Second Amendment thing he had going.
The Demented Politics of the New Zealand Terrorist
Why don't we just stop trying to blame his derangement on each other and put the blame where it belongs...on the evil git that pulled the trigger.

Quote of the Day

I've seen this quote in a couple or three places in the last few weeks.
You can vote your way into socialism, but you have to shoot your way out.
Most recently here. This is one of the many reasons we have a Second Amendment and a key reason the Left won't rest until there no longer is one.
