Just remember, they don't want to take all your guns

(Via the Drudge Report)

Yeah, right.

Here's something we can do to help our brothers in arms in Colorado.  Start writing to the state and local chambers of commerce, and tell them that you've always enjoyed coming to Colorado to hunt in the past, but due to their new gun laws, you won't be able to do so in the future, and that you'll be going to Wyoming or Nebraska or wherever instead.

So what if it's a lie?  They lie about us constantly.  Time to turn the tables, and nothing--even a lie--should be off the menu at this point.  Hit them in the purse--or at least make them think it's going to hit them in the purse.  Let the local businesses start to put pressure on their elected idiots and let's see what happens.

World fails to end

So, the sequester cuts have kicked in, and so far...zip.  The sun came up, cops are on the job, Mrs. Freeholder is still employed teaching school and I still feel crappy with minor improvements.

Just about what I figured.  Time for the next manufactured crisis.

Crazy Joe

Everyone's favorite funny uncle, Crazy Joe Biden, is dispensing more wisdom about the use of firearms in a self-defense scenario.

“Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” Most people can handle a shotgun a hell of a lot better than they can a semi-automatic weapon in terms of both their aim and in terms of their ability to deter people coming. We can argue whether that’s true or not, but it is no argument that, for example, a shotgun could do the same job of protecting you. Now, granted, you can come back and say, “Well, a machine gun could do a better job of protecting me.” No one’s arguing we should make machine guns legal.

"...just fire the shotgun through the door."  OK, don't need to go through the rules violations on that one, I hope.  And in a number of jurisdictions, that will also get you arrested.  Obviously, Joe learned everything he knows about guns from Hollywood and Internet firearms forums.

Oh, by the way Joe, I'll argue all effing day long that machine guns should be legal.  Just for the record, you dufuss.

blarg...gack...snort

Again, apologies for a continuing lack of bloggage.  I have been fighting (as has Mrs. Freeholder and Son; Daughter has been insulated by distance) some unholy spawn of an upper respiratory creeping crud.  It starts as a cold, then settles into a sinus infection that wants to grow up to be bronchitis or walking pneumonia when it grows up.  The stuff is made of of equal parts suck, fail and yuck.

As a buddy of mine in high school once said, "I feel like Death sucking on a cracker."

It's also proving to be intractable.  You think you're over it and  a week later it's back again.  Mrs. Freeholder is on her third bout since just before Christmas, I'm on my second since mid-January and Son goes to the doctor today.  The doctor and pharmacist are probably going to freaking Jamaica or somewhere, and my money is going with them.

The worst of it is that we all have to keep going to work or school, unless we run an actual fever, which happens occasionally.  But by the time we complete that task, we're pretty much done for the day.  We do well to eat and get the basic household chores done before collapsing.  Hell, I need a nap to get to the bed so I can sort of sleep.

I don't know how long to warm weather, and I'm always wary of "wishing my life away" as my Dad said, but it can't get here soon enough.  Not going to be really soon however, the weather forecast is for more cool/cold/wet weather for at least another week.

In the meantime, I''ll nag you to go beat on the Congresscritters, and judging by the news from many states, you'd better start on the locals as well.  Gun grabbers, as with rust, never sleep.

Stand on your rights

(Via SurvivalBlog)

Sorry I can't embed this one for you folks (assuming I could get Blogger to cooperate, which is becoming problematic), but go here and see the police get schooled on what gives them the ability--or in this case, lack of ability--to stop someone solely for being armed.

Another gun-grabber gets powned

Most entertaining.

Obviously not getting the message

(Via The Drudge Report)

There is a group of 4 "bipartisan" Senators who think they're going to bargain away our civil rights.

Have you written your Senator this week (especially if it's one of these 4 asshats) and given them a loud and long "NO!"?

And a word to the NRA--at least one of these morons carries your "A" rating.  You might want to get in touch and make it really clear to him that he can go from "A" to"F" in a hurry, at least if you want to keep all your members happy-happy.  I guarantee you that my future contributions depend on it.  Don't backslide into your past of back-room dealing--make it clear that this one is a bare-knuckles brawl.
