Strands of Sorrow by John Ringo
It took a novel by John Ringo to break me away from the Gabaldon novels. I had thought he was done with his zombie books with the last one. Glad he gave us one more. Nice wrap up with a much more satisfying ending than the somewhat abrupt end to the last. Highly recommended.

Not only was the whereabouts of the meeting not announced until this morning but when the location was discovered and women who are for 2nd Amendment rights wanted to simply listen in on the conversation, they were kicked out of the meeting.H/T to Thirdpower.

Representative Flynn is licensed to carry and his voting record seems to be a mixed bag. A politician having a permit to carry has never been a bar to them voting to keeps guns out of the hands of the little people. I'd be curious to know his position on gun control in general.

While the FBI study discusses “mass shootings or killings,” its graphs were filled with cases that had nothing to do with mass killings. Of the 160 cases it counted, 32 involved a gun being fired without anyone being killed. Another 35 cases involved a single murder.Lies, damn lies, and statistics.
It’s hard to see how the FBI can count these incidents, which make up 42 percent of its 160 cases, as “mass killings.” They plainly don’t fit the FBI’s old definition, which required four or more murders, nor even its new one of at least three murders.

But ya know? Obama's last two anti-gun nominations were made when the Republicans had more than enough votes to filibuster those nominations into oblivion, and they didn't. There were Republicans who voted for those nominees. What makes you think it will be any different when or if GOP have a majority? I'm not convinced it will be. The past is evidence that it won't.

But The New York Times' headline on September 24 read: "FBI Confirms Sharp Rise in Mass Shootings Since 2000."If the number rises from one to two that a "sharp rise".
Lies, damn lies, and statistics.

Sources say he was in a classroom for a demonstration of how to break down and clean his service weapon. They say an experienced state police firearms instructor was handling a gun that somehow misfired.There is so much fail hidden in those two sentences, but I sorta suspect it boils down to a rule two violation and testing a recently reassembled weapon with a chambered round.
When you're teaching your students to break 'em down and put them back together maybe the best place for live ammo for both students and instructors is someplace other than the classroom. Just saying...
