What May Be

Supreme Court Vacates Large-Capacity Magazine and Assault Weapon Bans in a Preview of What's Coming Next
As expected, post Bruen a lot of cases are going to have to be reconcidered by the lower courts under the new guidelines. This article gives you a preview. I, personally, think the liberals on the lower courts will just find a way to apply struct scrunity to their advantage. The goal is still too screw gun owners. We will see.

More Mostly Peaceful Protests

Pro-Abortion Protest Turns Violent: Lawmakers ‘Held Hostage’ In Arizona Capitol
It's going to be a long summer as carries on in a manner that makes the J6 crowd look peaceful which they mostly were. Funny how they are mostly peaceful only when the Left carries them out. Had the Court upheld Roe Pro Life adherents would have held a silent vigil without any of this nonsense and still cleaned up after themselves.

HeroesCon 2022

One day at a convention the size of HeroesCon clearly isn't enough. This was my third time there and I should have known better.

I hit Mike Grell's table first off and commissioned the above and got some art and a book signed. Next was Don Rosa. This time I cam prepared to get a drawing. He particular about who he gives them to: fans only. I qualified. I'm not realy a Duck fan, but I am a Don Rosa Duck fan. I then I found myself in the line for Walt Simonson for three hours with some realy nice people. That's still a big chunk of the day. Simonson was the only artist there I found who was doing sketches for free as long as you provided the art board. Nice guy. He apologized because he had to take breaks. Then it was off to find Wayne Vansant were I purchased a lot of neat art. Really great guy to talk to. He has a new Battron book coming out next year. He showed me the proofs. Looks great. It was a hit and miss for getting stuff signed the rest of the time. I did pick up a nice Usagi drawing from Michael Dooney, and a few other odds and ends from others. The Chris Claremont line? Too long. Took a pass.

There were some artists who seemed to be rarely at their table, but, all in all, a lot of really nice guys. It did feel rushed though. Next year, two days events allowing.

It Makes No Sense.

It makes no sense that it’s illegal for someone under 21 to buy a handgun or even a beer, yet can legally buy an assault weapon. My amendment is a commonsense fix with broad public support that should receive bipartisan backing and I hope that it’s allowed a vote. - Sen Feinstein
It makes no sense that someone under the age of 21 can serve in the military and vote but can't buy a handgun, drink beer, or smoke tobacco. You are an adult at eighteen or you are not, and you can do much more damage with an uninformed vote than with beer, tobacco, or a gun. Case in point: Congress on any day that ends in Y.

And That's a Win

BREAKING: Supreme Court Issues Landmark Ruling Solidifying Gun Rights
Amid the bad news a burst of sunlight. "May issue" permitting got the boot. I haven't read the decision yet but that's the gist as I understand it. All the right people are butt hurt so that's a good sign. We have a win for the good guys. Now those pesky lower courts will do their utmost to undermind it.

UPDATE: We got strict scrutiny. That, hopefully, will deal with those pesky lower courts and their intent to undermind the Second Amendment. Last, nice of the Court to release this before those f**kers in the Senate vote on their gun bill.

Tim Sale RIP

Damn, damn, damn.

Tim Sale passed away today. I first saw his art on the Theives World graphic novels then Billi99. He then moved on the DC and Marvel. I was hoping to meet him at HeoresCon this year but he dropped out, and now we know why. His death is a damn shame. He has over his career brought so much joy to his fans. Rest in Peace sir.

The Stupid Party - Guns Edition

A surprise: Senate group reaches deal on gun control package
I do not understand why the Republican party must continually choose defeat when victory is just around the corner if they stay pat. This framework on gun control will produce no positive results. It gives Chuckie Schumer a win and alienates gun owners. That places potential victories in November at risk if supporters of the Second Amendment sit out the election. Maybe not the politically expedient supporters of the Second Amendment,  but those that believe they have rights not subject to governmental whim will. If I can't trust you to protect one enumerated right, I can't trust to protect the others. This position gains you nothing but the appreciation of Democrats and left leaning independents, maybe, and they aren't going to vote for you anyway no matter what you do. Why alienate your supporters? Wait. I forgot. You're the Stupid Party.

Amazing Ghost Stories #14 - Matt Baker Cover Art


A friend of mine owns a used book store/comic shop in Durham, North Carolina called Books Do Furnish A Room. I listed this comic on eBay for him a couple of days ago. The bidding quickly took it to $1026. We were surprised. He bought it years ago because he likes the pre-code horror. The cover was nice but he wanted to read the stories inside. The cover is actually beautiful work by Matt Baker. Baker was one of the first African-Americans to find any success in the comic book field. That and the fact he draws such beautiful women are a couple of the reasons this comic attractive to comic book lovers, and, specifically, comic book speculators. I like it because it is damn beautiful work. Enjoy.
