Whenever a good guy with a gun chooses to take action there is always a chance the police might not know the good guy from the bad when they show up on scene. It's understandable in the heat of the moment. It's not remotely understandable when the good guy's clothing clearly identified him as a security officer.

'Nuff Said

Stan Lee, Marvel Comics' Real-Life Superhero, Dies at 95
I was looking at the pictures in comic books long before I started to actually read them. I "borrowed my brother's comics which were mostly DC. When I was able to pick up my own they were Marvel and on every one of them whether he was writing them or simply editing was the name Stan Lee. How much actual input he had in the creation of characters such as the Fantastic Four, Thor, Spider-Man, Hulk, etc, etc may be argued for decades. Hell, it is now. His influence on the comic industry can't be. Comics are a collaborative art form and he was the ultimate collaborator. In the end he lived his life and now he's gone. He lived a great life and he will be missed.

A Good Guy with a Gun

In Missouri, a man heard screams outside his house. He picked up his 9mm and investigated to find a man assaulting a women in a car. Her clothing was torn and he was strangling her. The man pointed his gun at the man and ordered him to the ground. He complied. Police arrived to take him into custody. Sometimes the mere presence of a gun solves the problem.

Some Observations on the Mass Shooting in California

With the mass shooting in California, Senator Feinstein again, while the bodies are still warm, calls for more gun control, since all the gun control in the State of California that we were told would stop such things didn't.

The MSM is harping on the fact that the shooter was a former Marine rather than the fact he was decked out like an Anitifa twat. Searching for a narrative I guess.

There is mention of the six off duty cops in the bar who were unarmed. This is as it should have been if they were drinking. If you are out on the town drinking your firearm should be at home. If they weren't drinking why were they unarmed? This could have been stopped at the start by one armed customer.

AND I do have prayers for the families of those killed by the aforementioned twat, especially for the Sheriff's Deputy who arrived on the scene and did his duty even at the cost of his life.

Uncharted by Kevin J. Anderson and Sarah A. Hoyt

Halley's Comet exploded sometime 16th century and magic was possible again. The down side was that North America was cut off from Europe so history branched off from what we know. Now in 1804 the Sorcerer Ben Franklin contracts Lewis and Clark to form an expedition to find a route to the Pacific to determine whether Europe can be reached the long way round, and there is evil magic afoot in the Western lands. They are tasked to investigate that as well. Anderson and Hoyt are both fine writers on their own and work very well together. It's a good read and I enjoyed it very much. I think it is potentially the first in a series. I hope so. It is good stuff. Highly Recommended.

Continuing Fight to Protect Second Amendment Rights, Attorney General Jeff Landry Leads 17-State Coalition Against Overreaching Gun Restriction

BATON ROUGE, LA – With federal court decisions impacting Louisiana people, regardless of where the lawsuits originate, Attorney General Jeff Landry is leading a 17-state coalition against a New York City gun restriction which threatens Second Amendment protections.

In an amicus brief filed today, General Landry’s coalition asks the United States Supreme Court to consider the permitting scheme’s burden on Second Amendment rights, the full extent of those rights, and the applicability of those rights to self-defense outside the home.

“The restrictive policies memorialized in New York City’s ‘premises permit’ scheme unduly burdens the Second Amendment rights held by all Americans,” said General Landry. “Criminalizing travel with a securely stored firearm creates an imbalance in our federal system that weighs against lawful exercise of the Second Amendment inside and outside of New York City.”

The terms of New York City’s pricey permit prohibit removing any firearm from the home with two exceptions, practicing at a range in the city or hunting in the state - and hunting requires authorization from the city’s police department. To remove a firearm from the home for any other purpose requires a separate, yet similarly expensive “carry” permit that is very difficult to obtain.

In their legal brief, General Landry and his counterparts argue that New York City did not show sufficient cause to burden citizens’ gun rights in their pursuit of crime prevention and public safety, both of which are frustrated by restricting licensed and trained gun owners from carrying outside their homes. This restriction has the practical implication of leaving thousands of firearms in unoccupied homes, where they are of no use to their lawful owners when faced with dangerous situations.

“The need for self-defense is not limited to the home and the right to possess a firearm should not be either,” said General Landry. “From self-defense to hunting, the lawful exercise of our Second Amendment rights should be fully supported.”

New York City’s regulation not only offends the Second Amendment and other constitutional protections, but it also poses a serious economic burden. “New York’s regulatory scheme discriminates against interstate commerce because it ‘deprives out-of-state businesses of access to a local market’ by forbidding its citizens from hunting and patronizing ranges outside the State with their own guns,” wrote General Landry and the others.

The 16 states joining Louisiana in the brief are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Michigan, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin through their Attorney Generals and Mississippi and Kentucky through their Governors. The case is New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. et al. v. City of New York et al.

New York's Sullivan Act has already been found constitutional by the Second Circuit in Kachalsky v. Cacace (2012), but hey, go for it. If we can get it heard by the Supreme Court, with it's slight realignment toward the right, who knows what will happen.

Just Because...

I also noticed this little tidbit of which I was unaware.
Judicial candidates: While judicial candidates are now (for the first time) required to identify their party affiliation, left-wing candidates for NC Court of Appeals and NC Supreme Court are unfortunately exploiting changes to election laws by registering as Republicans in order to split the Republican vote and place leftists in the courts. Please know which judicial candidates you plan to support before going to the polls!
Despite their protestations, the actions of the Left make it clear they have no interest in open and fair elections. If they did they wouldn't have to use these tactics to win. Then again, that may be sour grapes on my part that we didn't think of it first.

Go Vote.

Painted 'Comics' with 'Speech Bubbles' Found in Ancient Roman Tomb

Hundreds of illustrated figures — humans, animals and gods — appear in the paintings. Their poses demonstrate routine activities, such as harvesting crops and building a defensive wall, in a city that was a thriving center of commerce and culture during the second century A.D.

But the mural doesn't just contain pictures. Dozens of inscriptions appear alongside the figures; they describe the action in the local language of Aramaic (though written in Greek letters), and they seem to serve the same purpose as speech bubbles do in comics, the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) recently reported.

The point of divergence is Hitler invades Czechoslovakia before the British and French can roll over and give it to him for "peace in our time." It is to Turtledove usual quality which is way above average. If you like his stuff you will like this. Me, I'm still trying to decide whether I'll followup with the rest of the series. I'd also note that even at eight years old the publisher wants $11.99 for the Kindle edition. That's too high. Go to the library instead.
