What do you guys think? . . .
Tuesday, a controversial gun rights advocate is expected to speak about sexual assault charges he’s facing.
30-year-old Cody Wilson, well known for trying to post 3D printable gun blueprints online, was extradited from Taiwan after Austin police filed an arrest warrant against him.
Officers said Wilson paid a 16-year-old girl he met on an adult website to have sex with him. After they collected evidence, including surveillance video of him with the teen, police filed an arrest warrant for Wilson, but Wilson was not in the country.
He had flown to Taiwan on September 6, for what reason officers can’t be sure, but they said Wilson was tipped off by a friend of the victim that he was under investigation.
Commander Troy Officer said this on Wednesday, “We also know that Mr. Wilson missed a scheduled flight back to the United States.”
He’s right, you know. (Check out the video above. YES, that’s Tedra Cobb speaking in the video.)
I am deeply disturbed and upset. I have recently seen the coverage about Tedra Cobb’s advocacy for a gun ban. As a responsible gun owner, I believe there is room for sensible gun reform. However, taking away my guns when I have done nothing wrong is way over the line.
I know that many people throughout the north country hunt in order to put food on the table for their families. Surely, Tedra must know this, which is why she couldn’t say it publicly. A vote for her would be a vote against our north country values and way of life.
It’s narrated in that velvety Colion Noir voice, sprinkled with jokes, music references and various other esoteric references as you would expect.
I’ve decided two things after watching the video… 1) I’m going to check if the NRA is hiring / delete past blog posts and tweets where I no doubt cooked them … and 2) I’m going to keep telling myself owning multiple vehicles is too much of a pain in the ass with all the care they require if they you actually drive them a lot. I’m going to completely ignore the fact that if you’re not a broke boi like myself you just have the dealership arrange a flatbed guy to come pick up the car and take it in for maintenance, and when it needs a wash every couple days (to keep looking extra glossy just to constantly let these hoes know) you have the man with the mobile detail van just stop by the high rise… have the concierge buzz him into your private parking and he does his thing while you’re asleep. Some of you are probably asking yourselves “I don’t get that flatbed to dealership thing…”, and my answer to that is when you’re ultra rich you obviously don’t have the time to waste on stupid shit like oil changes, preventative maintenance, warranty recalls etc… so they just come and pick up the DB11 and you drive your Range Rover Velar that day.
From blogger Andrew Tuohy over at Omaha Outdoors…
Recently, the New York Times published an article about California’s latest attempt to crack down on gun owners: ammo control. Certain California cities have long required dealers keep records of ammunition, and next year that will be a statewide rule, along with background checks for ammunition purchases. California is also pushing for microstamping, a requirement that firearms create tiny imprints on fired cases which would identify from which gun they were fired.
With a near-total focus on the anti-gun side of the debate, the Times reporter made the effort out to be a no-brainer. After all, isn’t it working already? California law enforcement has arrested felons and seized guns based on records from ammunition purchases!
Politicians have pushed for massive taxes on ammunition – and comedians have, too.
Like all well-intentioned yet ill-thought-out laws, these attempts ignore one very important factor: demand. If people want ammunition, other people are going to find ways to sell it to them.
Well, that’s one way to react to your NFC North standing…
Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen was reportedly detained and taken to a hospital for an evaluation after he allegedly threatened to shoot up a Minneapolis hotel.
Griffen, a three-time Pro Bowler, made threats about “shooting up” the Hotel Ivy on Saturday, law enforcement sources told FOX9. Griffen was seen pacing around the lobby of the hotel and a dispatcher said the suspect warned he would shoot someone if staff didn’t let him into his room, KSTP-TV reported.
Griffen agreed to leave the hotel after police arrived and no weapon was ever brandished, according to multiple reports. He was briefly detained, but never arrested.
The trial should be interesting…
As the Florida man at the center of a fatal “stand your ground” shooting in July was freed on bond Monday, hundreds of pages of sheriff’s documents were released — shedding light on his mindset during the tragic encounter.
According to the documents, one witness told a detective that the gunman, Michael Drejka, appeared “more angry” than remorseful and immediately justified the shooting to those who watched what unfolded at the Circle A convenience store in Clearwater.Bystander Robert Castelly said Drejka was muttering to himself: “‘I just shot someone. What’d you think was gonna happen? He shouldn’t have ran up on me.'”
Another witness, Vicki Conrad, said that she didn’t hear Drejka say he shot someone, but that after the incident she was struck by his behavior, according to the sheriff’s department documents.
“His demeanor was, you know, uh, like, proud,” she said in a transcript with a detective.
“I don’t want to put words in your mouth, but like didn’t care? Is that what you mean?” the detective asked.
