As we are in the midst of gun show season

How about a public service announcement?


 Because everyone could use a good M1 Garand.

10-year-old shooter: "I want to be an inspiration"

I'd say she already is.

Apologies for linking to the Communist News Network, but it's where the video is.

FBI director to citizens: Let us spy on you

Encryption will “lead all of us to a very dark place,” FBI director says.

Citizen to FBI Director: Fuck off, you statist asshole.

Never been a big Apple fan, although I have owned and used some of their products.  They keep this up, I'm going to own and use a lot of their products.

Another new bullet design

(As found on Teh Facebookz)

But this one may have possibilities.  Made from solid copper bar stock, the Lehigh Defense Maximum Penetration are designed to maintain weight and shape while achieving deep penetration.   How deep, you ask?  Have a look for yourself.

It must hurt when someone sticks a finger in your eye

(Via Frugal Squirrels)

It seems that Everymom for Bloomberg's Safety (or whatever they're going by this week)  has once again botched their numbers when discussing crime statistics.  Work from the Crime Prevention Research Center shows that 92% of mass shootings between January 2009 and July 2014 took place in gun-free zones, rather than the 14% they cite.

92%.  For a practical purposes, that may as well be all of them.  And while correlation does not always imply causation,  it's just got to make you wonder if there is something behind those numbers.

It does explain why more and more folks I know are simply quietly carrying in places where they technically (legally in many cases as well) aren't supposed to.  The old saying "Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6" is ringing too loudly in their ears to be ignored, just like the gunfire in all those "gun-free zones".
