MYOB



H/T to Kevin.

A Firearms Instructor shot himself...

...in the thigh during recert training at the S&W Academy. He's with the UN. He's French. He doesn't know to keep his finger off the trigger. 'bout says it all.

H/T to Tam.

Bombshell: DOJ Considering Elimination of ATF
I'm not sure what replaced it would be any better, and you can rest assured the ATF would be replaced. Rather than 450 agents canned I'd rather see the management and their bosses [that'd be you Holder and your boss in 2012] given the boot. Anyhow I'll believe it when I see it.

H/T to Uncle.

The Silencer

Donate to the Second Amendment Foundation...

...through the United Way. John has the scoop here. Heh. I haven't donated to the United Way in years mostly because I don't care for my money to go to organizations of which I disapprove and I've always felt I can spend my money better than UW. This is a pretty good way to give those organizations the finger and help a good cause.

Offered without comment because...

...some things should be blatantly obvious even to a College Administrator.
'Firefly' and Anti-Fascism Posters Get Professor Threatened with Criminal Charges on University of Wisconsin Campus

The ATF was not only allowing...

...straw purchase to take place. They were buying the guns with taxpayer money and selling them to the cartels themselves. What next?

H/T to David and Mike.

Home Defense

In Hope Mills, North Carolina two men tried to break into a townhouse and were fired on by the 21-year female occupant. The two home breakers fled. There is no indication that she actually hit either.

According to the news story, this was the first time she had ever fired the gun. Here's hoping the young lady gets some training and practice. Maybe next time she'll hit what she aims at.

Old "666"



It's an old posting from Theo Spark, but it deserves reposting at every opportunity. Enjoy.

The five stages of freedom...

...by Clair Wolfe.

Working toward stage number five with varying success. Maybe hoping is a better word. Gotta stop falling for the latest flavor of political bullshit or maybe I'm just fooling myself and still firmly in stage number two [Shrug].

The sky is falling...

Apparently a six ton satellite is coming down but that's alright because the odds of it actually hitting anything of importance are slim to none.

The way my luck's been going lately I figure I'm deader than hell.

In Canada...

Right to self-defence under assault
But it looks like there is push back from the Canadian courts, so maybe all is not lost.

Heh

From Larry Correia's and Mike Kupari's Dead Six:
I collided with a fat, bloated slug of a man. He glared stupidly at me with little pig eyes and tried to push his way into the relatively dry elevator. “Hey, you’re bleeding,” he said nasally in American English as he pointed at my robes. “What happened in here?” Not seeing any guards looking in my direction, I grabbed him by the throat, yanked him into the car, broke his nose with a head butt, kneed him hard in the crotch, and then slammed his face repeatedly into the wall. He collapsed in a whimpering heap in the shell casings and broken glass.

Nonchalantly as possible, I stepped into the indoor rain and pushed through the chaos. Carl magically appeared at my side. “Wow, you really kicked Michael Moore’s ass,” he whispered. I turned back briefly. It had kind of looked like him . . . Naw.
The ARC is out now and the paperback release is on September 27th.

UPDATE: Just finished it. Good stuff. I highly recommend it.

Police Shoot Bystanders

San Francisco police officers fired on an armed suspect and miss the suspect but hit bystanders. The suspect was taken into custody unharmed. If the officers knew there were bystanders in the line of fire and fired on the suspect anyway they were negligent as hell. I suspect a lawsuit will follow. On the other hand it may simply be the officers couldn't shoot for shit.

Cello Rock?

Also a Sweet Child of Mine cover.

More fodder for the iPod.

Is it just me or is kinda hard to look like a bad ass when you're toting a cello around?

Your Ghost - Greg Laswell



I was watching the second season of Dollhouse and found this. I think I missed it the first go round. Works best for me with the Dollhouse visuals.

I went to pick up my weekly...


...dose of comic books and was pleasantly surprised to find the first issue of Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 9. Whedon is writing the first arc and overseeing those he doesn't write himself. If I can't have more Buffy on TV this will do.

Dark Horse is also giving us the further adventures of Angel and Faith with the first issue of Angel and Faith. Whedon is the 'Executive Producer". In that it's from the same publisher as Buffy I expect good things from it.

And if that's not enough Dark Horse is also continuing the story from Dollhouse. Whedon's brother and sister-in-law are doing the writing chores.

If I can't have new Joss on TV then this will have to do.

Guns I want.

Here's a latest meme via Sean.

1911 - Remington's R1 will do.

M1 Garand - Had one and had to sell it.

Remington 870 Tactical - Had one and had to sell it.

Lee Enfield No. 4 Mk. 4 - I like this version. I want it in .308 rather than .303.

M&P in 9mm and .40 cal.

Probably lots more if I gave it any thought, but those would do.

Reading...

Bye Bye, Baby by Max Allan Collins. It's the latest in the Nathan Heller series, and I've been waiting years for Collins to give us another Heller tale. This time Heller looks into the death of Marilyn Monroe. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Coincidentally, Netflix delivered The Last Lullaby today. It's based on Collins' novel The Last Quarry. The novel is top notch. The plot isn't really that original. A hitman falls for his target. Trouble ensues. But Collins has a way with his material that makes it very readable and enjoyable. It's crime fiction at its best. The movie on the other hand has gotten mixed reviews. I liked the book enough to give it a shot. Again, I'll let you know how it turns out.

Bloomberg has begun a campaign against HR.822...

...the National Reciprocity for Concealed Carry. His argument is State's Rights. Where is your concern for "State's Rights" when you're pushing for, say, a Federal ban on high capacity magazines or another of your favorites, Mikey? Fucking hypocrite. Sebastian has more here.

From the Left Coast...

The California legislature has passed a bill banning open carry of unloaded handguns. All that's required for passage is Governor Brown's signature. He'll sign. It's California.

H/T to Jeff.

There will be blood on the streets...

...or in the dorms or in the ...

Not as a result of concealed carry. Hasn't happened yet despite the screaming and gnashing of teeth by anti-gun twits.

Also, it's a right not a privilege.

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission...

...is holding public hearings through September 28th on new regulations many of which pertain to handguns. The one of primary interest, H8, would allow...
...individuals who possess a valid concealed handgun permit to carry that handgun on wildlife conservation areas, boating access areas, fishing access areas and game lands, except for these game lands (and any boating or fishing access areas on them) which are exempted at the request of the landowner
John has more detail here. If you can't attend the public hearings you can comment online here.

Strange Tales #138

Jack Kirby did the layouts for the cover but John Severin finished the art. If I had to choose between the two Severin would win every time.

Gunwalker, Fast and Furious, Gangwalker.

All it's ever been about has been justifying gun control.
Likewise, what Codrea has dubbed as “Gangwalker” appears to be another attempt to provide guns to criminals in order to generate more gun crime and then more calls for gun control.

... turned out to be a bit further away than anticipated. Tile's down and grouted. We'll seal it in a day or so. Father-in-law has fled to points South. Can't say that I blame him.

NASA Issues a Valuable Reminder: ‘Apollo 18′is Not a Documentary
I'm not sure which is worse. That anybody could mistake Apollo 18 for a documentary or NASA would feel the need to remind people that it's not.
