“The SAFE Act isn’t the only example, but it’s certainly one of the ones that points the most to the fact that our government isn’t listening to the people, and we are the government,” said Sheriff Timothy Howard of Erie County, New York. “Do you want law enforcement people that will say, ‘I will do this if I’m told to do it, even if I know it’s wrong.’?” . . .
Space Cadet Mark Kelly is at it again, spreading complete falsehoods in pursuit of his anti-gun agenda. From his latest mailing: “If you or your family have ever visited an airport, courthouse, or even some hospitals and schools, you know that a metal detector can be the last line of defense between your loved ones and a criminal with a gun.” I guess I have a different definition of “last line of defense” than he does. But here’s the rub: If it’s currently illegal to have a gun that’s undetectable by a metal detector, but you were taking it through security to kill someone, would you care? Would it make any difference to you if it was no longer illegal to possess the gun?
An article over at PJMedia is titled Gun-Control Supporters Say Momentum Quietly Building to Get a Bill Through, but the text of the article seems to spend a whole lot more time talking about the failures of the recent gun control efforts. There is, of course, a quote from Pelosi repeating the extremely questionable “90% support background checks” figure, and another quote from the clearly delusional Dan Gross of the Brady clan who says “Momentum is on our side,” but on balance, it doesn’t look so bad. What say you? Who’s got the momentum at this point?
A Perinton, New York pediatrician has been arrested and charged with petit larceny after allegedly stealing lawn signs calling for the repeal of the NY SAFE Act. A resident saw her swiping signs from the yards of several houses and called police, who tracked the good doctor to her office, where they found several of the signs in the dumpster outside. A representative of the Shooters Committee on Political Education, the group that sells the signs, said there have been periodic reports of sign thefts, but this is the first instance of an arrest that they were aware of.
After a relatively long absence from his GLOCK torture tests, mattv2099 hits a doubletap, following up his recent deep fried Twinkie GLOCK with the peanut butter GLOCK 17. This will not end well, I’m sure.
Oh, and here’s a video twofer, since it’s the weekend, and the end of November. Back on Halloween, I promised you “No more pumpkins for a while.” Well, this video showed up on my list literally on Halloween, after I’d already chosen the Richard Ryan videos for the finale. Brought to you by Primary Weapons Systems, the same folks that did the absolutely hilarious TFL (Tactical Forearm Lengthener) video, this short video chronicles the kidnapping and murder of a couple of the festive gourds in old-school, grainy video style. It was too good not to pass along, even if I had to wait a month to do it in order to keep my promise.
I want a girl that keeps a PMAG in her corset. I could live without the eyepatch, though.
