Keep me in your prayers.
Don't try this at home. It should only be tried in public by tax-paid, uniformed people who claim to be professionals. Only One provides a safety lesson.
From Herschel Smith: "Yea, I’ll bet he wanted to go home. Listen to me very carefully so that you don’t act like the man in the article. If your gun is falling and you have a round chambered, do not ever try to catch it. Ever."
Minutes into the meeting a man among the onlookers stood and moved to open the hall door, letting in an armed and armored force of the Bryan Police Department, the Brazos County Sheriff's Office, the Kerr County Sheriff's Office, Agents of the Texas District Attorney, the Texas Rangers and the FBI. In the end, at least 20 officers corralled, searched and fingerprinted all 60 meeting attendees, before seizing all cellphones and recording equipment in a Valentine's Day 2015 raid on the Texas separatist group.

Putin promises to personally investigate the assassination of his most effective political enemy (I guess he's going to hire Eric Holder to get to the bottom of it just like he did with Fast and Furious).
Is this the "reset button" Hillary was talking about?
Radical Rhinoplasty. Michael Bloomberg's Mother's Nose Job. Getting the old gal ready to go break some more laws.
A close-up of Charlotte Bloomberg's lockwork, in all her naked glory.
So, today I went over to my good friend and favorite gunsmith Len Savage in Heard County, Georgia with a mission: to submit Mrs. Bloomberg to a complete check up with a view to get Charlotte ready for the campaigns to come as we go back to Washington state to break Bloomberg's Law -- again.
With the assistance of Ramsey A. Bear, we stripped the old lady down for her physical and discovered, among other things:
** Her barrels had been previously cut down from a longer length (originals could have been as much as 36") and one of them was dented.
** she was looser than a goose with dysentery in her lockup. She positively rattled. The girl had obviously been around several blocks and probably fired with modern smokeless ammunition. The metallurgy was incredibly soft by modern standards. Someone had risked getting blown up at some time in the past.
** Her forearm wood was badly split and cosmetically very poorly repaired, but seemed like it would hold together for a while longer.
** She needed, and got, a good cleaning. We also used Brownell's OxphoBlue to darken her complexion a bit, but not, a Ramsey observed, "as dark as Mike Bloomberg's heart." We also left all of her wrinkles and warts intact. She earned those honestly.
** There were apparent bloodstains on the wood around the lockwork and blood pitting on the lockwork itself, prompting R.A. Bear to ask, "Why Mrs. Bloomberg, what HAVE you been up to?"
The important thing was to make her functional, within the limits of her flawed metallurgy, either with brass black powder shells or perhaps (and this may be in her immediate future) .410 sleeves. I was criticized by a couple of brave Anony Mouses that I was trying to evade arrest with a wall-hanger. So that was Priority Number One.
Then there was the business of the previously lopped-off and dented barrels. Ramsey suggested, "I think the old bitch needs a nose job. It'll make her handier in a tight spot, anyway." So that is what we did.
Here is the new Charlotte with her lopped-off nose, immediately after the rhinoplasty:
Of course we wanted to keep everything out of the Randy Weaver error zone, so the barrel is now a nice 18.75 inches.
Here she is as seen full length, cleaned up, tightened up, and fully functional and ready to go out and break Bloomberg's Law again:
And here I am, posing with the old girl and the result of her rhinoplasty.
I think I'll send the tip to Mike along with an explanatory cover letter.

In his speech Friday before the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Md., National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre discussed a host of issues impacting gun rights, declaring they all depend on each other. Curiously absent from his speech was any acknowledgment of the danger amnesty for illegal aliens with a “pathway to citizenship” would pose to continued government recognition of the right to keep and bear arms.
Having run out of ammunition, the ATF asked the Davidians if they could retreat. The Davidians held their fire and let them go.
So these quacks and sharks are interested in reducing injuries and deaths? They ought to start with the Number One Cause, instead of escalating tensions between those demanding freedom be surrendered to a monopoly of violence and those who, if forced to choose between obedience or resistance, will not go gentle into that good night.
Readers of this column are familiar with the story of Brian Aitken, a gun owner arrested and convicted after moving in New Jersey with his lawfully-purchased guns. While his sentence was commuted by Gov. Chris Christie, Aitken’s personal legal problems have been far from over – not only does he remain a “prohibited person,” forbidden now by law from owning guns, but of greater concern to him is reestablishing legal rights to be with the son he has been separated from and has not seen in six years.
