I'm glad I live in North Carolina...

...and don't have to make the choice...
Al Franken is staying in the senate. John Conyers is staying in the House. Bill Clinton will die a free and wealthy man.

If anyone needs to rationalize a vote for Roy Moore, there it is.

“But what Roy Moore did is accused of is so much worse than what Al Franken is accused of actually did.”

...cuz I'm pretty damn sure if the choice was between Moore and the Democrat running against him, it wouldn't be the Democrat I voted for. This is the politics the Establishment has created. If they can live with it, so can I.

Unintended Consequences by John Ross

I read this book in the late 90's but hadn't felt the need to reread it. The book had a good story but dragged at times. Still does. Reviews on Amazon mostly complain that Ross could have used a good editor. I do agree but the technical bits that they complain about were what I liked best the second time around. It is long at 800+ pages. I do recommend it if you can find an affordable copy.

A Bipartisan Bill

Senators introduce bipartisan gun background check bill
I've not seen the actual wording in the bill but Feinstein and Murphy are involved and that makes it suspect. If they are involved they'll be something in it meant to screw gun owners. If I'm paranoid, it's the prohibitionists that made me so.

More on the rifle used to stop the bad guy in the Texas Church shooting

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

BELLEVUE, WA – As more facts emerge from the tragic Sutherland Springs, Texas church shooting, gun prohibitionists and their cheerleaders in the media are stymied in their efforts to exploit this case, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“The perpetrator’s rampage was stopped by a law abiding citizen, using an AR15-type rifle,” noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “The shooter bought his guns at retail and passed background checks because the military failed to forward his criminal records to the National Instant Check System. Now it is being reported that the gunman once escaped from a mental health facility in New Mexico.

“Isn’t it ironic,” he mused, “that a private citizen, who the anti-gunners would prefer to be defenseless, used a rifle that gun control extremists have tried to ban with the claim that such guns do not belong in civilian hands?”

Gottlieb noted that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told two different cable news networks that adding more gun control laws that penalize honest citizens and interfere with their right of self-defense is not the answer.

“We stand in agreement with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton who told both MSNBC and Fox News that Kelley had already violated laws against murder, so another gun law would not prevent this from happening,” Gottlieb said. “Sunday’s incident proves that the kind of gun controls advocated by politicians and anti-gun groups would have prevented the heroic actions of Stephen Willeford and Johnnie Langendorff, and may have allowed the shooter to continue his rampage.

“Mr. Willeford’s heroic intervention and his pursuit of the wounded madman, with Mr. Langendorff, is exactly what the Second Amendment is about,” Gottlieb observed. “They followed the killer and kept him covered with a semiautomatic rifle until lawmen arrived.

“America is blessed to have men like these,” he said. “But gun control extremists? Not so much.”

...and that answers THAT question.

The weapon that Willeford used to engage the nut job down in Texas "appeared to an AR-15".

Despite the fact that a neighbor with a gun engaged the shooter and saved lives.
A church shooting in Sutherland Texas was stopped after a local gun owner grabbed his rifle and began returning fire at the shooter, police announced Sunday.

I am curious as to what type rifle our good guy used to take the killer down.

The Sea Peoples by S. M. Stirling

This is the latest in his Amberverse series. You can't really read any of these books without starting on the first. After twelve or more books in the series, I found myself lured away to another book while reading this. I found my way back but, it may be getting a bit old. I'll still give this a recommendation and hope the next holds my attention more 'cuz Stirling on an off day beat most other writers.

More of the Same

The new bill amends the National Firearms Act, which regulated fully automatic firearms and outlawed new ones made after the law's implementation. "A reciprocating stock, or any other device which is designed to accelerate substantially the rate of fire of a semiautomatic weapon," would be added to the books.
Not just no but Hell no. I don't think they should ban bump stocks, but these bills they propose to regulate or ban bump stocks keep having vague language that can be interpreted to regulate or ban any upgrade to a firearm.

It's no different than the other shit they've proposed. Like I said, "not just no, Hell no."

Just a Thought...

Remember, according to the left, every Islamic Supremacist who commits a mass murder is a “lone wolf” who just decided, for no reason, to start killing non-Muslims one day. But Dylan Roof was absolutely the product of white Southern Culture and so all confederate paraphernalia must be immediately banned.
