You're know by the friends you keep.

Kay Hagan's friends support gun control and so does she.

Good guy with gun stops mass killing.

In Oklahoma, a knife wielding former employee channeling ISIS beheads a fellow employee and starts on another before getting shot by the company CEO. The media keeps emphasizing the CEO was a "reserve sheriff's deputy" as if his use of force wouldn't have been legitimate had he not been. The deputy part means he probably completes whatever annual training is required to maintain his certification but beyond that who knows. I guess it's just hard for the media to simply admit a good guy with a gun solved the problem.

H/T to Uncle.

Eric Holder is resigning as Attorney General

Not that it matters. His replacement will simply be a different face with the same agenda.

Oh, and one guess as to who Obama will nominate to the Supreme Court next should such an opportunity arise.

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

That'll do.

I guess dismissing the charges was too much to ask for from a New Jersey prosecutor.

Billy Johnson: Paranoia

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Yeah, well...

Kay Hagan wants the attack ads to stop.

Well Kay, stop 'em. Your fellow travelers are responsible for them too.

Fixed it for you.

“During the execution of this (federal search) warrant, one of the officer’s weapons discharged officers discharged his weapon,” reads a statement issued by Attorney General Joseph Foster.
Contrary to what Attorney General Joseph Foster might wish, those things don't discharge themselves. It takes a finger on the trigger. The officer either intentionally shot the grandmother when he saw her move or he had his finger on the trigger and pulled it when her movement startled him. Just saying...

H/T to Firehand.

Finger to Nose. Wiggle Fingers.

Republican Party to Tea Party Conservatives, “Shut Up and Give Us Your Money”
So Karl, you've been doing your damnedest to depth charge conservative, non-establishment, Tea Partyish candidates, and your best has been pretty damned successful. Now your establishment GOP candidates aren't getting the donations they need to compete against the better funded Democrats, and you want our help. Right?

[crickets]

It's what they do.

Lie.

Bill Whittle: Bush Lite

Friday, September 19, 2014

The truth is not in them.

David Chipman, a spokesman for Mayors Against Illegal Guns which lobbies for an expansion of background checks for people buying guns, said the PGF "is not your grandfather's hunting rifle used for sport and recreation this is a weapon designed to kill with precision."

"This technology potentially enables any two bit criminal to operate with the skills of a highly trained sniper," Chipman said.

If they can come up with the $22,500 to buy it you twit, and once again we come to that unpleasant fact you guys refuse to acknowledge. Ya know, that long guns are rarely used in crimes. A rifle is not the weapon of choice for most criminals unless by criminal you mean gun owner.

Oh, and then there's this gem.

"I'm very much in favor of the password protection, but if the user opts not to utilize password protection this product gives shooters a better accuracy than, on average, most cops," Fineman said. He said the target accuracy of most police is three out of ten.

"To think that private citizens that are not trained could shoot better than 3 out of 10, it's scary," Fineman said.

Wait. You mean it doesn't scare you that police only hit the target three out of ten times?

Here's what scares me. A chief executive of a pro-gun control organization pulls a statistic out of his ass and the journalist doesn't even question it.

Then I guess it must be so...

...because a Bloomberg/EveryMoms study says it is...
Study: Online gun sales open market to buyers who would fail a background check
...and they're above reproach. Riiiiight.

Blood Dancing

Long guns kill half of all law enforcement officers in Pa
This time it's in the blood of two murdered PA Troopers. Then there the usual lies and misinformation. Classy bunch ain't they?

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Yep.

Ah!

The case of the mystery virus

That had to have hurt.

Telling the truth, that is, but don't count on it to last. The prohibitionist mantra is now "universal background checks".

Yes...

Is Eric Holder Trying to Protect the IRS?
...but only because the trail leads straight to the Oval Office. If not for that Lois Lerner et al would already under the wheels on the bus.

But I'm supposed to leave my gun at home?

Shots Fired During Panera Restaurant robbery
Again, the hell you say.

Yeah I know, the store was closed and the store was robbed while the manager was accepting a shipment. It still goes to show bad guys don't pay any attention to Everymoms' wish for a gun free world, and they never will.

Buying Elections

“We have had in this country a flood of very, very dark money coming into this nation’s political system,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “Radical billionaires are attempting to buy our democracy.”
Yeah Harry, but the Koch Brothers aren't the billionaires we need to be worried about.

H/T to John.

That's actually pretty damn funny.

Harry Reid is mad that Republicans didn't obstruct his bill
The bill has no hope in hell of getting the 2/3's majority it needs to pass but by advancing it to the Senate floor for debate it mucks up Democrat campaign strategy. Harry's now hopping mad. That's a win by any definition.

He will never live this down.

Think Carter and you get banzai rabbit. Think Obama you get the Ninth Hole. Choosing golf over foreign policy will follow Obama to his grave.

A Virtual School Bans Guns

Seriously.

A student sent an email to an instructor using an avatar with a firearm on it. The instructor told him it was a violation of a yet to be written policy.

Ah, the joys of educational fuckwittery.

Bill Whittle: President Coward

It's what the the prohibitionists do.

Lie.

The funny thing is they do it so badly it's blatantly obvious to anyone with an IQ greater than a cucumber or a politician.

Case in point.

Whatever

So Kroger essentially told the Demanding Moms to pound sand when they demanded they change their policy on carry in Kroger stores. The response of the wholly owned subsidiary of Bloomberg was $1,000,000 in print ads against the chain.
The group, a campaign of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety, is running print and digital “homepage takeover” ads in half-a-dozen newspapers criticizing the gun policy at grocery retail chain the Kroger Co.
Newspapers huh? That's money well spent. Who reads 'em anymore? If they were buying time on the air I might actually be worried.

I've a new addiction.

As you might have noticed, I like comic books and strips. I also like the original art from same. Most are out of my price range but I've picked up a few here and there recently. Most of these images were from the sellers so the quality varies.

Sunday Afternoon at the Range

I have a Nikon FM I've had since about 1980. I like old fashioned film but now thirty some years later I finally ungraded to a Nikon D3100. I still like film but I gotta admit digital is very convenient. I took it to the range yesterday to play. It's going to take me a little while to get the hang of it but out of about 65 pictures I found a few that I liked.

That's Funny
