Why do Libertarian Party candidates hate guns so much? That seems a valid, if unlikely question, first in the wake of the party’s nomination of an unapologetically gun control loving VP candidate. Now, the top of the ticket, Gary Johnson has displayed a jaw dropping lack of manners, not to mention arguable antipathy toward a replica historic firearm he was given as a peace offering. Gary Johnson Shoots Himself in the Foot: Throws Out Austin Petersen’s Gun. The Libertarian presidential candidate thought so little of the keepsake given him by his defeated primary rival, Austin Petersen, that he tossed it in a trash can (where it was later liberated and returned to Petersen). Who gets rid of (even a replica) gun like that? Who displays that kind of gracelessness? Who’s the lesser of three evils now? . . .

Cobbled together in Syria by militant groups fighting to overthrow the autocratic regime of Bashar al-Assad, they use an explosive charge at the bottom of a pipe to hurl a propane cylinder crammed with 40kg or more of explosives and shrapnel. A finned tail welded to the cylinder shields it from the launch blast and provides stability in flight. The Ahrar al-Sham brigade reckon the cannons can hit targets 1.5km away.”

Gunfire Is Reversing the Great Migration in Chicago – Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agitpropagators at The Trace ponder the fact that some 200,000 residents left the Windy City hellhole in the last 14 years…and the “journalists” blame the migration on “gun violence.” In context, of course. Like this: “There are many explanations for why blacks are leaving Chicago. Former residents cite higher taxes, failing schools, job losses, and even the weather as contributing factors for why they left. But one of the most prevalent complaints is violent crime.”
