MIX: Meisei Story

I've noted before that I watch a lot of anime. The newest on my list is MIX. It is a story about two brothers, their sister and High School baseball. It has a nice dry sense of humor that appeals to me. The intro featuring the song Equal by Sumika is posted below followed by a concert version. Good stuff.

This one applies to more than gun rights. The Feds have to prove intent in serious regulatory violations. Here a guy overstayed his VISA and unbeknownst to him became a prohibited person. The Feds charged him for possession of a firearm and didn't care that he didin't know he was prohibited. Now they have to.

GRNC Alert: Senate Republicans to Gut Concealed Carry

Our GOP friends in the North Carolina Legislature are at it again. I guess it is considered being pro law enforcement to give the North Carolina Sheriff's Association whatever it wants even if it screws gun owners. Now they are trying to change our concealed carry laws from shall issue to may issue be allowing Sheriff's to deny a permit based on a lack of good moral character.

SHERIFFS GRAB POWER
TO DENY PERMITS



This is not a drill, and this is not a joke. Republicans in Raleigh are in the process of gutting NC’s “shall issue” concealed carry permit application structure...

Regarding concealed carry permit (CHP) applications, we are furious (yes, furious ) to be forced to announce that the Republicans you sent to Raleigh have snuck language into the Proposed Committee Substitute (PCS) of a bill that would, in essence, transform North Carolina from a “SHALL ISSUE” state into a “MAY ISSUE” state.

We at GRNC are incensed and you ought to be as well. As you know, GRNC engineered NC's "shall issue" concealed carry law in 1995. Since then, GRNC has been instrumental in greatly improving it with restaurant carry, limited school/campus carry and more. We're not about to stand by and watch a naked power grab by NC's sheriffs, aided by Republican senators, roll back all of our progress.

Are You of “Good Moral Character?”
Last week, in Raleigh, Republicans snuck new language into a PCS for Senate Bill S90("Protect Religious Meeting Places") (=H110), and it’s worth noting that, initially, S90 was not even written to deal with the concealed carry application process. It’s also worth noting that before the poisonous PCS, S90 was a promising pro-gun bill.

Yet, the PCS language strips “shall issue” status from the people and confers “may issue” power to your county sheriff. According to the PCS, a sheriff can deny CHPs by claiming applicants are not of “Good Moral Character,” the same shameful Jim Crow-era language that still exists on Pistol Purchase Permit applications, which GRNC has been fighting to eliminate.
And you’ve probably guessed already: there is no strict definition for “good moral character,” and truly, no definition would suffice in this context anyway. Therefore (and conveniently), lacking “good moral character,” grounds for denying a CHP, is an open-ended label that any sheriff could attach to any applicant for any reason.

Shifting Power from Citizen to Sheriff
Lest you wonder, “good moral character” has nothing to do with an applicant’s criminal history. Exhaustive, indeed intrusive, criminal and medical background checks, and (de facto) long waiting periods are already part of the CHP application process. The sheriff’s personal, subjective and nebulous analysis of your character can have no legitimate purpose. The only clear purpose of this language in S90’s PCS is to take power away from you, the law-abiding citizen, and hand it to your county sheriff to lord over you, so he can withhold your rights at will.

Perhaps you’re thinking, “Sheriffs would never use this new power to deny permits to qualified people.” Yet, if they’d never use their newfound power, why enshrine it in our state’s laws? It can have only one purpose, and if there is no intention to use it (now or later), it would not have been proposed as substitute language for S90.

What You Can Do
Are you prepared to live in a state that treats gun rights the way California does—like “gun privileges?” Are you ready to cede your Natural rights to your county’s sheriff, so he can ration them back to you as he sees fit? If not, please join other gun rights supporters in putting an immediate halt to this attack on your gun rights (from the Republicans no less!). Once again, we must remind these politicians who “brung ‘em” to the dance, and it looks like we’ll have to be more stern than usual.

Below, see how you can easily contact Senate Judiciary Committee members (and Sen. Berger) to tell them, emphatically, that any vote, indeed any support whatsoever, for S90’s Proposed Committee Substitute will be considered a severe and blatant anti-gun action!  


IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED!


    • EMAIL MEMBERS OF THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE: Use the copy/paste email list provided below and the copy/paste text provided under ‘Deliver This Message.  

    • PHONE REPUBLICAN LEADERS & YOUR SENATORThis is serious and so phone calls to committee chairs and to your own senator are just as important as sending an email message. Please use the phone numbers provided below to contact Judiciary Committee leaders. Also, please call your own senator (find contact details below). When you reach each senator's office, tell him or her:
      I am a gun rights voter, and I am enraged that Republicans are seeking to force a huge step backwards for gun rights in our state. The ostensibly pro-gun party should be ashamed to be identified as the party that introduced Senate Bill 90's PCS language, which would grant "may issue" power to sheriffs for Concealed Carry Permits, stripping citizens of the unalienable portion of unalienable rights. Any Senator supporting this PCS will be considered anti-gun, and will pay at the polls. Thank you.

  • ATTEND TUESDAY'S COMMITTEE HEARING: The presence of gun rights voters at this meeting is critical. Committee members must know that we see what they're trying to do, and that we're serious about stopping them. Please attend Tuesday's committee meeting. You may have an opportunity to speak, so arrive early in case you need to sign up. Find details below.
  • PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO GRNC: Help us fight gun control while we promote Second Amendment principles. Please CLICK HERE to contribute.

DELIVER THIS MESSAGE

Suggested Subject: "Don’t Gut Concealed Carry"


Dear Senator:

I have just learned of the Republican Party’s effort to transform North Carolina’s concealed carry permit (CHP) application structure from “shall issue” to “may issue.” I see that Republican senators have snuck language into S90’s Proposed Committee Substitute (PCS) that would grant sheriffs unchecked power to deny concealed carry permits to any applicant, any time, for effectively any reason. The PCS’s language, which poisons an otherwise pro-gun bill, allows a sheriff to declare that an applicant, any applicant, is not of “good moral character.” This is the same shameful Jim Crow-era language that still exists on the Pistol Purchase Permit application, language that ought to be removed (not added elsewhere).

Of course, “good moral character” has no particular definition, nor would any be satisfactory given the context. Exhaustive and intrusive background checks and (de facto) long waiting periods are already part of the CHP application process. The sheriff’s personal, subjective and nebulous analysis of an applicant’s “character” has precisely zero legitimacy. Clearly, its only purpose is to wrest power from the law-abiding citizen and hand it to our county sheriffs to lord over the citizens, so sheriffs can withhold Natural rights by fiat.

This is unacceptable! I am incensed that the members of the Republican Party would even consider such an anti-gun scheme. North Carolina is not California, it is not New York, and gun voters will not allow this state to transform into one of these states in the context of the recognition of the Second Amendment.

Be warned:
Any favorable vote, even the slightest measure of support for S90’s PCS, with its “good moral character” clause, will be perceived as a threat to every gun rights voter in this state, myself included. Do not doubt it, backing S90’s PCS will be recorded as an extreme anti-gun action!

Put a stop to S90’s anti-gun PCS now. I will be monitoring your actions on this critical matter through alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina

Respectfully,

X-Men: Dark Phoenix {2019]

Why is it so damn hard for Hollywood to adapt a property in the spirit of the original material. Oh, right, self-absorbed assholes. As a result we get crap adaptations like X-Men: The Last Stand and Dark Phoenix. I read Claremont's and Bryne's Dark Phoenix Saga in the late 70's. Even with Jim Shooter's interference with the ending, we got the story that arc that most embodied the X-Men. Great story, beautiful art, character arcs you wouldn't believe, with an emotional kick in the stomach at the end of the story. None of which we get in either movie. Both are crap adaptions. The makers picked out the bits that interested them and ignored the pieces that made the original story special. The Last Stand was and is a crap movie. Dark Phoenix was a crap adaptation, but as a movie it was okay. It was certainly better than X-Men: Apocalypse. It is not a waste of money unless you have any affection for the work by Claremont and Byrne. If you do, stay away.

Barack Obama Is Lying about America’s Gun Laws Again

‘Gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense. Anybody can buy any weapon, anytime without, you know, without much if any regulation. They can buy over the Internet. They can buy machine guns.’

I just bought a stripped AR lower today that I ordered over the internet from Palmetto State Armory for a really good price. They couldn't ship it to my address. They shipped to a nearby gun shop I designated. I had to drive to the store, present my identification and undergo and pass a NICS background check before I could pay the transfer fee and take it home. That experience proves the lie to every point made by our former President except the last. Buying a machine gun is expensive with a level of regulation designed to place them outside the reach of most gun owners. What our former President is actually talking about are semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15. They are not machine guns and he knows it. He calls them that to push an agenda...gun control.

I couldn't put it down until done. Levi is a fixer for the mob. He is miraculously cured of cancer the same day his wife is killed. he turns his back on the world and begins a ten year journey that begins in Japan and ends in Nepal only to find himself a target of the Russian mob and at the center of an international crisis. In the second novel he finds himself joining a war against the sex trafficking industry. I liked them both and recommend them highly. Hey. at $5 a hit, what's to lose?

n something that I find profoundly troubling when I’ve had this discussion before, I’ve had a Caring Liberal tell me that the example of Iraq doesn’t apply because “we kept the gloves on”, whereas fighting America’s gun nuts would be a righteous total war with nothing held back… Holy shit, I’ve got to wonder about the mentality of people who demand rigorous ROEs to prevent civilian casualties in a foreign country, are blood thirsty enough to carpet bomb Texas.

You really hate us, and then act confused why we want to keep our guns? But I don’t think unrelenting total war against everyone who has ever disagreed with you on Facebook is going to be quite as clean as you expect. - Larry Corriea

This new business plan has caused a dramatic drop in sales. I've gone from buying thirty plus comics a month to three. None of them are Marvel. I guess that's their plan for their films as well, but catering to the SJWs may or may not have that effect. While people who are fans Marvel comics are also filmgoers. People who are fans of Marvel films aren't necessarily fans of the comics. We'll see.

It's been awhile since I last posted what I've read. This is what I'll admit since the last post.

Rewrite by Gregory Benford
A man dies and awakens in his sixteen year old body with a chance to live his life over again and again and again. Turns out he is not alone and some try to alter history to suit themselves. Well they all do but the bad guys push toward a nihilistic endgame. The hero resists them. We also get Robert Virginia Heinlein as side characters. I was initially reminded of Ken Grimwood's Replay, but the tone is different and really very different. It's been a long time since I picked up a Benford book. I may have to backtrack and read more. Highly Recommended.

Slayer by Kiersten White
I read somewhere that Fox was planning on rebooting Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I hope not. Modern Hollywood can't avoid f**king these things up. This book takes place in the Buffyverse of old kinda. It takes up after the 8th and 9th Season from the Dark Horse Comics. Buffy is there but very much a side character. It tells the story of the remaining Watchers and the last girl to gain the powers of Slayer before the end of magic. In a lot of ways it's routine but it was a fine light read. It you are a Buffy fan you will like it. Recommended.

The Sky Blue Wolves by S. M. Stirling
The last, maybe sorta, of the Amberverse Series. It wraps of the story adequately. It is standard Stirling which means excellent. Very well done but kinda abrupt ending. I think it was time to move on and Stirling realized it. It is a must read for fans of the series. If you haven't read any of the series start with the first. Fortunately for us, Stirling has moved on to new things.

Black Hats by Max Allan Collins
Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson versus Al Capone in New York City. A very nice what if novel of the 1920's. As I read I pictured Sam Elliot as Wyatt Earp. Highly Recommended.

The Storm by David Drake
The sequel to Drakes take on Arthurian Legend in The Spark. The older Drake gets, the smoother he gets. Highly Recommended.

Voices of the Fall, edited by John Ringo and Gary Poole. this is the latest in Ringo's Zombie series. Ten short stories by authors such as John Birmingham, Dave Freer, Michael Z. Williamson, Sarah Hoyt. There is one by Ringo but it isn't the best of the bunch. I really like to see where Birmingham take his character in a novel. all of the stories are good. A few are excellent. Highly recommended.
