Assault Weapon Bans: A Solution in Search of a Problem

Again, analysis regarding the AR-15 — the so-called “weapon of choice” of mass shooters — produces less-than-impressive numbers. Between 2007 and 2018, 173 people were killed by mass shooters using an AR-15, according to a New York Times analysis — roughly, 15 per year. (For perspective, 13 people die per year from vending machines falling on them.) The fearmongering regarding this weapon becomes even more apparent when one considers the estimated 8 million AR-15s currently in circulation — the vast majority of which will never be involved in a crime.

Pass of Fire by Taylor Anderson

This is number fourteen in the Destroyermen series. The war with the Grik is closer to the end but on the Dominion front things are heating up. It's all good, but remember you can't start this series here. You have to start with book one, Into the Storm, otherwise you will be lost. Honestly, with most series this long I start to get tired of it and hope the author has an end in sight. As it stands now, this one is good enough to just keep on going.

New The Far Side Coming

The Best News in a Long Time: The Far Side Is Coming Back
I have fond memories of the comics strips, comic books, television, movies, books I read growing up. That would include strips like The Far Side, Calvin and Hobbes, and Bloom County that I read as an adult. I was still growing up then. What I have found is that in many cases the fond memories don't translate to the present. I loved The Wild, Wild, West as a pre-teen. I tried to watch it again when a friend loaned me his DVD collection a few years back. All the magic was gone. Dennis the Menace as I knew it as a child, Pre-teen, and teen does nothing for me now. The first two years of the strip on the other hand are as good as anything Bill Watterson did in Calvin and Hobbes. The second run of Bloom County never touched the first run. I decided I'd rather keep the fond memories so I don't go back to read or watch the old stuff that much any more. I hope I don't fell that way about The Far Side relaunch.

Remember the applause.

About time.
At least he's honest?
One is long. The other is short. Read them both as they are much better at this stuff than I am. The point of both is that Democrats exist among lies because if they told the truth only bat shit ideologues would support them. "we don't want your guns" or "you can keep your doctor" are standard fare here. Lies. It's what they do. Now Beto has spoken "truth" and we know where we stand. Right leaning gun owners have always know what the endgame was but others were in denial.

No denial now.

They want to take our guns.

They aim to have them if at all possible, so get your ass out there and call your representatives and tell them where you stand. If you wait until the election to vote it may bee too late.

"Remember the applause".

Salt the Earth

I am so tired of this shit.
NRA Sues San Francisco After City Declares Group a Domestic Terrorist Organization

NJ Governor Issues Troubling Executive Order On Guns

Sue them. Sue them. Sue them. As others have said, "punch back twice as hard". Practice the same lawfare they practice against us. Drain their coffers. Destroy them economically, then salt the earth.

...or what he's talking about.

When it Comes to Gun Control, Beto Has No Idea What He Wants
Let's face it. Beto the Wonder Boy, says whatever he thinks the hard Left wants to hear. Too bad for him they don't care any more and his wife's money don't buy the votes it used to.
