Just Because...

I'm a big Frank Cho fan from his Liberty Meadows strip. His comic book work is OK. I'd be better if he would finish a project once in a while.

It is what they do...

Lie.

What alternative reality do these people live in?

They say they want a conversation...

6 Reasons Your Right-Wing Friend Isn’t Coming To Your Side On Gun Control
Gun control advocates don't want a "conversation". They want gun rights advocates to sit down and shut up. If we don't we are evil. Kinda like the "conversations" in an abusive marriage. So, the answer is no.

It is what they do...

The anti-gun, anti-Trump media is claiming Trump made it easier for the mentally ill to obtain guns when he rolled back an Obama era regulation that deprived people who "received disability payments from Social Security and received assistance to manage their benefits due to mental impairments" from possessing firearms. Here's Reason Magazine's fact check on that false claim.
No, Trump Did Not Make It Easier for Mentally Ill People to Buy Guns

Yeah, it is.

It is what they do...

Lie. They being Everytown and the politicians and fellow travelers who parrot them.
18 school shootings in 2018?
The real numbers aren't bad enough for them. They have to pad them.

That's Funny...

From the land of the perpetually offended...

Ignorance on display
Atorney General Sessions referred to the Anglo-American of American Law Enforcement. The snowflakes went ape shit 'cuz it's Sessions and thye seem to be ignorant of the simple fact that American jurisprudence/law enforcement is derived from English common law and English traditions. These people open their mouths and the rest of us are supposed to be impressed that stupid comes out.

Guns of the South by Harry Turtledove

I've lost count of how many times I've read this alternative history/science fiction novel. Some time after his defeat at Gettysburg, a guy in camo shows up at Lee's encampment and makes him and his army an offer he can't refuse; the AK-47. It's more a time travel story than alternative history but fans of both will love it.

The Mote in God's Eye by Jerry Pournelle and Larry Niven

A classic military science fiction and first contact novel. I've read it at least three times and have enjoyed it each and every time. The Empire of Man makes contact with an alien species for the first time and must decide whether they present a threat to humanity. If you haven't read it, you should. It has held up well over the years. As collaborators Pournelle and Niven are my second favorite writers. Heinlein, of course, comes in first.
