We got off lucky on ice the other day,

not too much and it was melting by afternoon.  Still wet and chilly out there this evening.  Happily, there's some data to look over.
































Well, this company won't be getting any money from me

From GFZ:
One of the more notable ones involves X-Products CEO James Malarkey stating that he believes “gun ownership is a privilege.” The statement was part of a detailed Facebook post on his personal page detailing a plan for a licensing system for gun ownership.

Recoil Web

Go read the post and then come back for final thoughts.





Speaking of wastes of oxygen, "This. Is. CNN."

Haab told Carlson he wanted to go "speak [his] part" and "open eyes" to a few things he thought could make the situation better. Haab said the network was dishonest and that is why he decided not to attend. He also said he was directed to "stick to the script."
"She had actually said that over the phone that I needed to stick to the script," Haab said of the CNN producer.



CNNs Cuomo is the idiot pushing the BS story of "I bought a AR15 with an expired ID!".


"I didn't keep anyone alive, but I went home safe

so I did a good job."
“He believed he did a good job calling in the location, setting up the perimeter and calling in the description (of Cruz),” said the union official, Jim Bell.
You're a miserable waste of oxygen, and you really ought to shut up.

'Good job' my ass.



So, let's go down the list:

The EffingBI blew it, twice.
The school blew it, multiple times.
The Sheriff's Office blew it, multiple times.
We find out that the deputy who was ON DUTY AT THE SCHOOL stood outside while people were being murdered.
We also find out that
The sheriff’s deputy who did “nothing” while Nikolas Cruz killed seventeen people also refused to share information on Cruz with state social services during a 2016 investigation into his home life.

But the NRA and the gun were entirely responsible.  Right.

At this point my contempt for those who blew it, and those slimy bastards using these kids to score political points, knows no bounds.

If you want to know just what kind of people we're facing,

this should cover it






"Who cares about that 4th Amendment shit, and the 2nd doesn't count at all!  I want searches and seizures surveillance and executions to properly enforce legislation I want!"
With zero understanding of what'll happen to her and her friends when the precedent is used against them.

For that matter, I wonder if she has any historical understanding of what socialist utopias used this kind of thing to control people?  Nice company she wants to keep.







Amateur astronomer first to spot a supernova,

which is very cool.  However, their description of his job...
Victor Buso is a locksmith. He spends his days fiddling with locks and keys...
Fiddling.  Right.

"We don't understand why you're so mad at us,

we only care about the children!"
Documents released in December through litigation by school-choice advocates showed that lawyers with the American Civil Liberties Union and Disability Rights Wisconsin had prodded federal prosecutors to go after the program, which enables low- and moderate-income Milwaukee parents to use taxpayer-funded vouchers to send their children to private schools. Nearly 30,000 students participate in the program.

According to the documents, the liberal groups opposing vouchers coordinated media strategy with the feds and submitted questions that Justice turned around and posed nearly verbatim to Wisconsin education officials. In addition to suggesting that the program was violating the Americans with Disabilities Act by denying access to disabled kids, the groups promised to drum up additional complaints. Their efforts appear to be why Justice kept the inquiry open for four years even though federal and state officials asserted from the start that, even if the unproven charges were true, they were not legally empowered to remedy them in private schools.
"But we CAN screw people around and use our power this way.  For The Children."


Oh, this is going to work out well.


But Trudeau wants to welcome jihadists back to Canada...


It being rather difficult to have a conversation

with people who think you're a child murderer and terrorist, and who insist that first you must earn their respect by doing what they demand, the answer is simple:
No.

No, we won't surrender a basic right because you disapprove.  No, we won't crawl to try to earn the 'respect' of people who despise us.  No, we won't crawl before people who want us dead.

Screw you.

As has been noted:
You demand we give up the 2nd Amendment.
No.
Your move.
And be damned sure you want what happens when you try.

In case you're needing some ammunition in arguments with leftists,

gun bigots and hoplophobes, let's collect a few things.

Yes, Obama was lying* when he said "This doesn't happen in other countries."
We're not even at the top of the list.


Larry Correia's magnificent piece on the subject.


"You want to repeal the 2nd?  Then try it, you screeching clowns.  See what happens."


'6 Reasons Your Right-Wing Friend Isn’t Coming To Your Side On Gun Control'
Note: screeching that your(probably former)friend is a bloody-handed child murderer for not agreeing with you works just as well as calling him a racist for not liking Obama.


How to Create a Gun-Free America In 5 Easy Steps
Warning: even if you get through #4, 5 is going to be a bitch.  And you really won't like the side-effects.


By the way, while you're screaming about racists and such, consider the background of your gun-control ideas; you want to talk about racist and bigoted...


This very good piece by Kevin Baker.

These give a good start.

*Ignorance is also possible, but I doubt it.

I'm giving something a try

If you're looking for ammo, the Ammo.Com link under 'Gunny Stuff' in the sidebar now gets me a credit if you buy a bunch. 

So, being no less ammo needy than anyone else, take a look at their stuff if you're shopping around.

The failures of the authorities just keep piling up

It’s a move away from so-called “zero tolerance” policies that require schools to refer even minor misdemeanors to the police. Critics call it a “school to prison pipeline.”
Under a new program adopted by the Broward County School District, non-violent misdemeanors — even those that involve alcohol, marijuana or drug paraphernalia — will now be handled by the schools instead of the police.
Cruz was banned from carrying a backpack at school after bullets were found in his backpack. Cruz was expelled from MSD last year after a fight with his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend.

Apparently, at least in some cases, they consider starting a fight to be 'non-violent'.

Idiots.  Surrounded by idiots.

They bitch about being called fake news

when they do crap like this...

"You want fake news and flat-out lies?  CBS News is for you!"

Why is it the people who yell "RACIST!" the most

do the most hanging around with racists?


"...but for China, there was either some sort of misunderstanding or the country intentionally caused a scene."
Intentionally.  The wanted to see how far they could push.

"Spare mag: yea or nay?"

I come down on 'Yea', but you have to decide for yourself.

I was going to write something else on this, but I'm too bloody tired; maybe I can come up with some clever words on the subject tomorrow.

"Sweet Marx, Trump made it easier for mentally-ill people to buy guns!"

No, he didn't, you idiots.

Of course, part of the problem is the asshats think that owning or wanting to own a gun makes you unfit to have one.  They'd have fit very well in the Soviet Union psychiatric program.

It's February, and the weather goes back & forth;

which makes it nice to have some data to review if it's a not-so-nice evening.

































And now, back to things more interesting than politics; more specifically

what I get to play with a bit.
No, it's not mine.  Dammit.  But I get to put some rounds through it.  We'll see how that goes.

The Professional Journalists of CNN

Call Ted Cruz names for 'not showing up to talk'.  Except he DID, and they didn't air it.

Also,


Not exactly the collusion with Russia story the Evil Party's been pushing, is it?
The Russian operatives sought to “promote discord in the United States and undermine confidence in democracy” by organizing the protests, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Friday.

Mueller’s indictment confirms what legal representatives for both Facebook and Twitter told a Senate panel on Oct. 31 last year: that Russian operatives sought to harm America by undermining public confidence in President Trump’s election.


Georgia, what the hell has happened to you

that this hasn't already been dealt with?


The caring, compassionate left in full display again

Parent of a murder victim happens to have a Trump shirt on.  And gets blamed for the murder, along with the NRA, the Stupid Party in general, etc.

After the past few days of 'liberals' doing this, they can one and all go to hell.  And take their 'compassion' and 'caring' with them.
