Boxer Tactical Daily Digest 6.8.16: Democrats Evolve, Jungle Love, and Load Bearing Equipment

Hillary-Clinton

Jacob Sullum at reason.com writes, “Contrary to what Clinton claims, an understanding of the Second Amendment that lets politicians impose whatever gun restrictions strike their fancy, including outright bans, is anything but ‘a nuanced reading.’ Clinton’s deliberately evasive approach to this issue contrasts with the positions taken by the Democratic Party’s platform in the last three presidential elections. In 2012 and 2008, Democrats said, ‘We recognize that the individual right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans’ Second Amendment right to own and use firearms.” In 2004, they promised to ‘protect Americans’ Second Amendment right to own firearms.'” So is Hillary’s new approach to civil rights the hope or the change? . . .

Smart-gun advocates seek market change – “The group wants members of Congress to encourage federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to engage gun manufacturers on developing smart guns as part of the contracting process. Manufacturers have been loath to get into smart-gun technology because of boycott threats by gun buyers and gun-rights groups, which see smart guns as potentially leading to other kinds of gun restrictions.” Translation: let the government go first…with your tax dollars.

A suppressor-ready jungle carbine: “MKS Supply, LLC, Dayton OH June 2016- Inland Manufacturing’s new American made Jungle Carbine brings back the neat looks of the original 1944 and 1945 WWII combat carbine with the added appeal that the barrel thread is 1/2-half-inch x 28 so the flash hider may be removed to fit a (legally registered) aftermarket sound suppressor or silencer if so desired.”

City Council approves police review funds in heated meeting – “(Madison, Wisconsin) Ald. Samba Baldeh, 17th District, said based on the chief’s comments, he did not feel safe with (police chief Mike) Koval sitting behind him during the meeting with a gun. ‘I really resent the inference that you thought that someone sitting behind you with a gun was going to be a clear and present danger to you,’ Koval said in response.” Seventy-seven square miles surrounded by reality.

NFL is investigating Aqib Talib, who may have broken Texas gun law – “Dallas police are saying Talib was the victim of an ‘aggravated assault,’ but Mike Klis of Denver’s 9News wrote earlier this week that Talib told people close to him that he had accidentally shot himself. WFAA in Dallas reported that Talib told police he was with friends in Hamilton Park when the shooting occurred. ‘I heard a single gunshot and fell to the ground,’ Talib told investigators in the full report, obtained by the TV station. ‘Everything was a blur and I was too intoxicated to remember what happened.’”

    I see Madison has not improved since I left. Great place to go to school, terrible place to live.

    1. avatar SD3 says:

      Nah, it was a pretty douchey place to go to school, too. 20 years ago they were already neck-deep in “herstory”, womyns studies, and “every man is a rapist” horsesh!t.

  2. avatar Geoff PR says:

    You out-did yourself with that pic of the HildaBeast, TTAG…

    EDIT –

    Since commenting on the previous blog post of that woman singing an ‘intellectually challenged’ anti-gun song doesn’t work, I’ll leave my comment here:

    “And she only knows three chords…”

      Looks like something that lives in a hut that walks around on giant chicken legs

      1. avatar Jim Bullock says:

        Nice.

        The rest of the legend fits, too…

      2. avatar Winterborne says:

        Hey, you’ll hurt Baba Yaga’s feelings, comparing her to that . . . thing.

  3. avatar jwm says:

    Load bearing gear, like a flak jacket and helmet, are things I never want to wear again.

    1. avatar Anner says:

      Could make for an epic pocket dump of the day.

      1. avatar jwm says:

        Some of the pocket dumps look like a LRRP loadout. Not some dude running to the 7/11.

    2. avatar Michael says:

      If I need to carry that much gear, bullets will already be flying around the country.

  4. avatar Another Robert says:

    The Dems have not changed. Their platform language re preserving or protecting 2nd Amendment rights were lies

  5. avatar ColdNorth says:

    Darn, I read “jungle carbine” and thought someone was coming out with a new Lee-Enfield No. 5 Mk I.

    1. avatar mp says:

      Nutnfancy recently reviewed an Inland M1…not very encouraging…

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        Nutnfancy doesn’t look bad after his, er, I mean, *her*? sexual reassignment surgery…

        1. avatar Joe says:

          That’s his wife…

  6. avatar Rusty Chains says:

    That picture really captures the spiritual essence of the most despicable and corrupt politician in modern America.

    Oh and I would avoid Inland Manufacturing since they appear not to know that the standard thirty caliber threading should be 5/8 by 24, as well as reports I have seen that they are less than highly reliable.

    1. avatar rosignol says:

      My only quibble is with the word ‘most’. IMO, she’s married to the holder of that title.

      1. avatar Rusty Chains says:

        Her husband is a serial abuser of women, which certainly makes him a criminal. But she raised corruption to new heights by using her office as the top official as the US State Department to extract hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes from foreign countries, now that is real corruption!

        1. avatar Ing says:

          Don’t forget all the great work she did in discrediting her husband’s many victims.

    2. avatar Anner says:

      CVA also did that on their single shot 300BLK. It works if you use a thread adapter, but it’s not pretty.

  7. avatar Cucamonga Jeff says:

    Nutunfancy reviewed that Inland rifle. Apparently it’s a loser.

  8. avatar 16V says:

    Sorry guys, the new color and font give me a genuine headache. I tried to suffer through for 10 minutes, it only got worse.

    Maybe I can reset my monitor or something, but until then, it’s been fun since (almost) day one. All good things and what not.

    1. avatar OMGun says:

      ^ Hmmm…
      Gotta say, I’m feeling it also.
      New scheme/layout reminds me of the crappola ads that pepper this (and many other) site(s).

      RF, How ’bout a feedback topic post on this?
      No guts, no glory.
      Whatever ya do, DO NOT become the R51 of the interwebz.
      It is your place after all.
      But if the new changes chase peps like bad 30.06 signs…

      Nothin but luv n respect to TTAG.

      1. avatar Stinkeye says:

        I second the motion for a feedback post on the site changes. I’ve been withholding any criticism since I figured there would be an “announcement” post at some point today, but that never came to pass.

        The site redesign appears to have fixed some of the performance issues, but if we have to give up a good-sized chunk of the site’s readability and usability, I’m not sure that’s a smart trade.

        But hey, Ghostery is only reporting 9 trackers being blocked instead of the 14 or so from the old site. That’s progress.

    2. avatar BDub says:

      Yeah, I have to agree. Would be nice if there was dark version t toggle on.

    3. avatar GunTotinDem says:

      I’d like more than a picture and a title on my iPad before I click it

  9. avatar MiniMe says:

    Gross.

    Ze goggles, they do nothin’!

    Photo caption: “Quick, Mrs Clinton, show me the face Bill makes when interns are performing clandestine desk ops…

  11. avatar Wilson says:

    “the Low Vis Battle Belt adds both comfort and versatility for quick reaction elements, personal protection details, and the prepared citizen.”

    The “prepared citizen” that needs 60 rounds of 5.56, a pistol and an IFAK on their person just to leave the house either lives in a really shitty neighborhood or has paranoia issues.

    1. avatar BDub says:

      …and that’s all before we even get to criticize the magazines for being pointed the wrong way, if you want to get at them quick.

  12. avatar Rimfire says:

    Agree that the new look site is not for me, too styled and weird, for lack of a better word. I much preferred the OLD TTAG look. This is murder on the eyes…

  13. avatar Tom in Georgia says:

    The people have spoken, Rob! We’re begging you in fact. Please, if it only saves one pair of eyes….

    Tom

  14. avatar FormerWaterWalker says:

    I’m OK with the new look-and it’s working MUCH better(so far). Yeah go back to red(BTW because you DIDN’T have an easily viewable paragraph or 2 I didn’t bother clicking on one story). Bring back the lead-in…

    1. avatar Mr. 308 says:

      This. I don’t like the colors myself, but I don’t really care about colors. Make it whatever color you like.

      It’s the functionality change I don’t like. I’ve looked a few posts over but going forward I just won’t be visiting the page. I am not going to click into each post to see if this is something I want more information about each and every one. Or to put that another way, I read the lead ins so that I knew what posts I had no interest in and could thus ignore. I won’t be clicking into each post to learn that information, and that makes the main page much less interesting to me.

      Hope you rethink this one.

  15. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    The low vis battle belt is appealing for a bug out belt. I’m seriously liking it.
    I’m going to have to check it out. Mostly because the picture shows rifle mags held backwards. That looks like awkward reloads.
    This would go nicely behind the back seat of the truck as a “get home” belt.

    1. avatar VTaero says:

      The mags are set up for the “beer can” style of rifle reloading. It is used by Travis Haley in the magpul instructional videos, Chris Costa uses the pistol style orientation.

  16. avatar Bob in Calif says:

    Please, PLEase, PLEASE stop with the pics of the beast. Doing my last check of the page before bed and I don’t care for the nightmarez.

  17. avatar anonymoose says:

    Wait, why would they thread their M1s for 1/2×28 instead of 5/8×24 for .30cal devices? Are they working to bring back the .22 Spitfire? I can understand them wanting to use 9mm cans for availability, but the (American) industry standard threading for 9mm long guns is 1/2×36 to prevent people from accidentally using 5.56 devices, and a lot of recent 9mm SMG cans can use 5/8×24 adapters to work on .300 Blackouts.

  18. avatar Stinkeye says:

    That belt is “low vis”? Maybe they mean from earth orbit, ’cause up close under a shirt that mess is going to look like you’re trying to hide two colostomy bags and a motorcycle battery.

    1. avatar BDub says:

      Thanks, I needed that laugh.

  19. avatar Aerindel says:

    Wow…the new layout is ugly.

  20. avatar MamaLiberty says:

    The supersized headlines and larger pictures are not a good replacement for the paragraph or two describing them… Bring those back, even if you must reduce the size of the headline. Ad block and ghostery continue to work just fine. 🙂

    And yes, please, no more pictures of Hillary. What a disgusting thing to contemplate at breakfast time… or any time!

  21. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

    I’m with everyone on the new color scheme, it strains my eyes. No Bueno!

  22. avatar Anonymous says:

    Hillary looks like she’s dropping a deuce in that picture.

  23. avatar LHW says:

    BRAIN BLEACH!!!!!

  24. avatar Roger Cain says:

    Hillary is one butt-ugly woman. Alcohol and hard drugs are the only logical explanation as to how Bill had sex with her.
