“We’re not political,’’ said one determinations staffer in khakis as he left work late Tuesday afternoon. “We people on the local level are doing what we are supposed to do. . . . That’s why there are so many people here who are flustered. Everything comes from the top. We don’t have any authority to make those decisions without someone signing off on them. There has to be a directive.”
"There may come a time when California gun shops may have only a dozen or so new handgun models for sale. Or, perhaps, none. Think that’s an exaggeration? California still has no less than 46 civilian disarmament bills floating around in the Sacramento legislature. It’s a slave state for sure."
What really has people upset about Wilson’s plastic pistol is the absence of permission inherent in the project. The idea that people might own something as dangerous and personally empowering as a firearm without society’s permission is what has always given gun-control advocates the fantods. That’s really what we talk about when we talk about guns: the power of the individual in relation to the collective, and the extent to which each of us needs to live by the permission of the rest. That argument is going nowhere, in all senses of the word.
Magpul Industries, an Erie, Colorado, based manufacturer of firearms accessories, announced today that it has joined 53 Colorado County Sheriffs and other plaintiffs in filing a lawsuit this morning to invalidate gun control measures recently passed by the Colorado legislature and enacted by Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper.
Stinking federal gun cops lose a round. Homer Helton finally gets his firearms back after acquittal on BS charges.
"Homer Helter's guns back home at his store after released by ATF." And here's the original story from the end of March: "Homer Helter returns to operating store, veterans call him 'hero of Naples'"
A former Philadelphia police officer once hailed as a hero and given a seat next to the first lady at a speech by President Obama has been arrested and charged with rape and other crimes.Authorities allege that former officer Richard DeCoatsworth left a party with two females early Thursday and took them to another location, where they allege he produced a handgun and forced them to use narcotics and engage in sexual acts.
This is in addition to Dickinson’s AB 760, which would impose a five cent tax on every round of ammunition sold in California. Ironically, the tax would be more expensive than the actual bullets. If Dickinson’s bill passes, the cost of bullets in California will go through the roof.
Back in my Benedict Arnold period, we had lots of jokes about anarchists. One I recall was -- There's two anarchists sitting at the kitchen table making Molotov cocktails when one asks, “So, who are we going to throw these at?” The other gets a disgusted look on his face and replies: “What are you, a stinking intellectual?” In the fistfight that results, the kitchen blows up, taking the two anarchists with it.
The link was sent to me by a reader with this disgusted comment:
So much for the seriousness of this idiot; he can’t even concentrate on a mission or objective. So he’ll sell out his bleepin’ precious gun insurrection for a momentary high. Next week he’ll sell out the dopers for the shooters, or maybe the butt jockeys. It’s really all about Adam and His Magic Ego, isn’t it Adam?
Good question. It strikes me that the man is, at least, fundamentally unserious about the deadly-earnest task he has proposed to lead. If all he was risking was his own ass, well, that's one thing. But it isn't.
