Seven Years and Counting

Huh. It passed me by. Too much else going on lately, I guess. November 25th was this blogs seventh anniversary.

Assumptions can kill you.

A couple in South Carolina arranged to buy a car off Craigslist and went to meet the seller at a gas station. turned out the seller was a armed robber. He pulled a gun on the couple. He kept his attention on the guy. They guy's girlfriend drew her weapon and shot him dead.

False assumptions will kill you. As Bob noted, "the fastest growing segments of gun ownership are young, urban and female."

H/T to Bob.

The silence speaks volumes.

The City Council for Los Angeles passed a ban on standard capacity magazines. No one is allowed to own or possess magazines holding over 10 rounds except, of course, the Council members themselves. They gave City residents sixty days to turn them in or face arrest.

The sixty days have expired and not one magazine has been turned in. Not one!

Never let a crisis go to waste...

Obama Attempts To Exploit Colorado Shooting, Calls for “Assault Weapon” Ban
Fortunately for us it mostly falls on deaf ears or those of his fellow travelers. Still, be afraid. Be very afraid. He won't give up.

Do I hear an AMEN!

Which they'll never get as long the centrist RINOS are in charge.Ya know, Establishment.

Recently Read

Fate of the Union by Max Allan Collins & Matthew V. Clemens.

The second in a series but I haven't read the first yet. A political thriller of sorts and the protagonist and a female FBI Agent pursue a murder mystery that turns into much more. Collins is a consistent writer and I can't say I ever read anything by him I didn't like. I liked this. I'll be loading the first in the series into my Kindle and reading it in the near future. Oh and fair warning, if leftish politics bug you, this may as well.

Colion Noir: The NRA and The FBI Terror Watch List Response

Rationalizing the stupid.

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said Monday that blocking Syrian refugees from entering the United States would impair the ability of police officers to connect with the Muslim community.

Clinton, who wants to import thousands of Syrian refugees, told reporters in Reno that it would look bad not to let in Syrian refugees, and that might inflame Muslims against law enforcement.

“If you’re in law enforcement, … you want the people in the communities that you are looking to get information from to feel like they want to help you,” Clinton said at a Nevada roundtable. “And if the message from people who are running for president, for example, is that we don’t want to take any Muslims whatsoever, that’s not good for law enforcement.”

“Let’s not be casting this broad, negative rejection of everybody who might be Muslim. That is not smart to protect ourselves. And I want people to understand — that is a law enforcement issue,” Clinton added.

In what universe does that make any sense? Maybe she is saying if we don't let the Syrians in we'll piss off Muslims and that will put the lives of Law Enforcement at risk? So they are at risk whatever we do. Pissing off radical Muslims is a daily occurrence, and we shouldn't bend over for fear of any specific group. The status quo is preferable to increasing the risk by inviting ISIS in hidden among the refugees.

'Cuz, why the **** not?
