The technology behind the Tracking Point rifle really is pretty amazing, but at the same time, if you can reliably do this all day long, wouldn’t it get a little monotonous after the initial giggle factor wore off? Where’s the sense of accomplishment, like when I put 9 rounds (with one flyer) in a four inch circle at 200 yards in a crossbreeze with a .22LR? It’s neat to watch her go 4 for 4 out to 1000 yards, but if the technology is that reliably accurate, then is it good, or just expected? . . .
The wharrgarbl machine was in full effect shortly after California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed several of the anti-liberty bills on his desk this afternoon. The Courage Campaign (Who?) said “Governor Brown choose [sic] to put craven political considerations above the safety and well-being of California’s more than 38 million residents.” They went on to wave the bloody shirt of Newtown a bit before concluding with “This is the kind of cowardly behavior we expect from out NRA-owned elected officials in Washington, not from a California democrat who should know better.” That’s right, know your place, Governor. And consider the source.

A “no guns” clause in the new Minnesota Vikings stadium lease has the landlord scrambling to explain the reasons behind it. The Vikings current stadium lease has no such clause. State lawmakers are concerned that the clause could prevent gun-related groups from scheduling events at the venue during the offseason. A rep for the Minn. Sports Facilities Authority said the clause was inserted to ensure that any retail shops in the stadium would not be gun-related, and that outdoor-type shows would be considered on a case-by-case basis. “We did not intend to make a policy one way or another to allow it or restrict it,” she said. Then why is it in there?
The public hearing where embattled Gilberton, PA police chief Mark Kessler was fighting to save his job was halted abruptly Thursday night when a handgun belonging to one of his supporters slid out of its holster and crashed to the concrete floor. The gun did not go off, but officials were concerned about the safety of everyone in the crowded meeting room and elected to postpone the hearing. It will be rescheduled at the nearby courthouse, where guns are prohibited. The hearing is the last opportunity for Chief Kessler to rebut the charges leveled by the council, which he says were trumped up to conceal the council’s desire to fire him over the inflammatory videos he made in which he rails about the Second Amendment and against liberals.
