Halbrook presents lessons of Nazi 'gun control'

This is an important lecture with much fascinating and useful information. One note for those who may, after watching, be disappointed that Halbrook does not make a big deal about -- and actually is not particularly supportive of -- ascribing Nazi motives to latter-day Lagerführers: He is a scholar, whose work must be accepted in academic and legal circles, and once you go from being a researcher/recorder to ardent, agenda-driven polemicist, those doors get slammed rather quickly and permanently. His value is where he's at doing what he's doing, presenting honest findings.

Lawmaker says BLM was ‘completely insane’ on Bundy standoff

Republican lawmakers on Thursday criticized the Bureau of Land Management’s handling of the April standoff with Clark County rancher Cliven Bundy, saying tensions could have been eased by local authorities rather than the BLM’s use of heavily armed agents. “Whether Bundy was right or wrong, was the BLM’s response reasonable? Anyone watching that unfolding fiasco can answer it was completely insane,” said Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., who added that guns should be taken out of the hands of federal land managers.

Anniversary: The murders at the Moore's Ford Bridge, 25 July 1946.

The 1946 Georgia lynching was a quadruple killing that took place in the northern part of the U.S. state of Georgia in the summer of 1946. Done on a bridge in Walton and Oconee counties between Monroe and Watkinsville, the case attracted national attention. While the FBI investigated in 1946, it was unable to prosecute. New publicity in the 1990s led to a new investigation, but the case has not been solved.

Praxis: "You need a lever-action rifle."(?)

I don't own a lever-action rifle, nor do any of my immediate family, although I did reload and put back a crate (300 rounds) of .30-30 for Matt just in case he ever runs into one (or to hand out to the neighborhood good old boys in the event of a zombie apocalypse). D.W. Smith at Bearing Arms says everybody needs one. Here is the case he makes:

Media Matters Twists Reality to Monger Fear of .50 Caliber Rifles

"Fox News Accidentally Exposes Recklessness Behind NRA's Defense Of A 'Battlefield Weapon,'"

Dems* want gun bans for 'suspected terrorists,' no standard of evidence for list

A Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human right of the individual, and these people demand the power to take it away without a conviction, without an indictment, without an arrest or formal charges, and now without "concrete facts" or "irrefutable evidence." They seem more than a little confused as to who the "terrorists" here are--perhaps a mirror would help.

Musical chairs in the propaganda ministry.

More from the perfumed princes of the Mandarin class.

Some senators, including Harry Reid, rarely go home; other senators do it constantly.
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., maintains an impressive travel schedule, though one made possible in part by throwing money at the problem: He spent nearly a million tax dollars to have a private plane available in order to make 119 trips in three years. That put Schumer in third place in the Senate travel rankings.

Don't count your tyrannies before they're hatched.

Democrat Sen. John Walsh plagiarized War College thesis

Scratch a socialist, get a communist. Ousted State Senator John Morse Launched Committee to Restrict Recalls.

Gosh, what interest could these groups have in shutting down recall efforts? Could it be that these groups are trying to maintain their stranglehold on Colorado? Or, is it just that John Morse is super bitter? Since the ballot initiative was struck down by the Colorado Supreme Court on a technicality, Colorado may never know.
