Desperately seeking relevance . . . Can’t stop, won’t stop! Shannon Watts puts Bass Pro Shops in her crosshairs – “We know this will come as a huge shock to you, but Moms Demand’s Shannon Watts has a big ol’ bee in her bonnet. The object of her ire today? None other than Bass Pro Shops. Their sin? Liking a tweet from NRA News urging support for rape survivor and Second Amendment activist Kimberly Corban (who, by the way, handily schooled Watts just yesterday).”
Poor Shannon, things just aren’t going her way . . . Moms Demand Action Founder Lies About NRA – “On Wednesday, Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action, an anti-gun group, got herself tangled up in lies and obfuscations as she tweeted a response to Kimberly Corban, who was raped as a 20-year-old student in 2006 and has since become a passionate advocate for gun rights.”
NC GOP leader shows off an AK-style rifle ‘Christmas gift.’ Some aren’t impressed. – “N.C. Republican Party executive director Dallas Woodhouse caused a stir on social media this week when he posted a picture on Facebook and Twitter in which he’s holding an AK-style semi-automatic rifle. ‘Best Christmas present ever !!’ Woodhouse wrote in the post. The post has drawn hundreds of comments, some of which praised the GOP leader for exercising his Second Amendment right to own a gun. ‘Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition! God bless you!’ one person wrote.” Bet he doesn’t shoot his eye out.
Sheriffs won’t enforce Nevada gun law after opinion – “The next steps for proponents of expanded gun background checks in Nevada are unclear after a legal opinion that for all intents blocks a voter-approved initiative set to go into effect Sunday. What is clear is that the Background Check Act to require a federal database check of private party gun transfers will not be enforced. That’s according to Nevada sheriffs.” Oh well.
Could Amazon stop a Ron Swanson with a gun? A new patent for drone protection shows the retailer is trying – “We’ve all thought about it after learning about Amazon.com’s ambitious effort to fill the skies with its unmanned delivery drones. What happens if someone tries to take one of these flying merchandise-hauling contraptions down? The idea was famously touched upon in an episode of NBC political comedy “Parks & Recreation,” when stanchly libertarian Luddite Ron Swanson (played by Nick Offerman) shoots a delivery drone with a hunting rifle.” Actually, we’re pretty sure Ron used a shotgun. In any case, we’d guess a load of Remington Hypersonic #2’s will defeat whatever Amazon may be cooking up.
