Well, it seems the BATFE has declared shenanigans

(Found on Facebook--How the dickens is it I'm finding out everything gunnie on freaking Facebook for crying out loud?) is reporting that the boys in F Troop are playing fast and loose with Administrative Procedure Act as well as the Constitution.  While we've never been able to nail them on the Constitution thing, we may actually stand a chance on the Administrative Procedure Act--by Ghu that's bureaucracy, and that's important, dammit!

It seems that a month before the BATFE announced their desire for a "framework" to declare M855 ammo as armor piercing, they decided to go ahead and remove the exisiting exemption for it from the 2014 ATF Regulation Guide (published in January, 2015--how's that for government efficiency).  Yes, they banned it before they asked for public comment.  Under the Administrative Procedure Act, that's not kosher.

No one is quite sure what this action means.  Is M855 production now illegal?  Or is the ATF's ban illegal?  Or are both illegal?  Yep, an already confused situation is now even more confused, and not amazingly, it took a government agency to do it.

The BATFE is out of control.  It has been for some time.  Republican law makers, it is time to dance with the ones what brung ya.  Reign the BATFE in, hard, now.  Reform this nation's bullshit gun laws, now.

If you, like those of us in North Carolina, have a "rabid dog with a bad attitude" state gun rights group (waving at you, Grass Roots North Carolina), join it and get active.  They're doing a lot for you at the state level.  At the national level, Gun Owners of America and yes, you haters, the National Rifle Association are the ones leading the charge.  You have to take the price of a few boxes of ammo and join up with all of them.  Stop worrying about being on some "list" (you already are) and get over getting the junk mail.  Join up.  Get active.  Donate money (lobbying costs money).

It's time and past time that we grab whoever needs grabbed wherever they need grabbed and put the fear of the voters into them.  It's our rights, our freedom, our guns.  I don't know about you, but I've been fighting this battle in one form or another for 30 years, and I'm tired of fighting the same battle over and over and over.  I'm ready to see this one put to bed, at least for a few decades.

They're giving us the chance.  Let's not pass it up.

It made Mother Jones want to hurl, but it made me laugh like hell

The leftist portion of the legacy media gets bent when Breitbart points out that numerous spree killers and spree killer wannabes, including the Gabby Giffords version, obtained their guns after passing a NICS background check.

Because, you know, background checks and more background checks are going to reduce crime.  And the Tooth Fairy brings you money when your baby teeth come out.

You'll note that I've stayed off politics for a good, long while

But I simply can't let this one pass.  The comedians in Washington DC have fed me one straight line too many.

The House voted Tuesday to fund the Homeland Security Department through the end of the budget year, ending a protracted standoff that centered on objections to President Obama's controversial immigration actions.

The House voted 257-167 for the legislation, which includes no immigration provisions, and was carried over the finish line with mostly Democratic votes. In a statement late Tuesday, President Obama said he would sign the legislation as soon as it reached his desk.

The US House, with a majority of its seats held by Republicans (you remember them, they're the clowns with the "R"s after their names) couldn't manage to stop the Democrats (they're the clowns with the "D"s after their names) from handing their guy in the White House a victory.

Well of course not.  Because, as I have said time and again, the Democrats and the Republicans are different sides of the same worthless slug of a coin.  If this doesn't demonstrate that to you, then I don't know what it will take.

Oh sure, they doing what we want on the M855 ammo ban, because they know will absolutely will vote their asses out of office over that--it's happened before.  But this?  No one--not one effing elected official--has lost his job over allowing more illegal aliens into the country.  Not that they shouldn't have, they just haven't.  They know this and they're willing to roll the dice that this will hold true this time.

So, America.  Just how long are you willing to put up with the best government money can buy?

Silence, please
