…isn’t that the NSA is breaking laws and violating the privacy of nearly every person on the planet.
It’s not that I think Snowden is a traitor (I don’t).
It’s that Snowden was far from being the only one who knew what the NSA was doing, yet all but one did nothing.
It’s that the American public at large
I don’t know what the deal is with politicians. They’re smart enough to trick everybody into voting for them, yet whenever they open their mouths stupidity reigns. But fortunately for the great state of California, state legislator Kevin de León is an exception to the rule.
While talking out of his donkey (that is to say his ass) he makes a bold and perfectly reasonable argument that something called “ghost guns” should be banned because if you load them using a “30-caliber clip” they magically become capable of firing at the completely insane rate of 3,600 rounds per minute.
Back when I was much younger — and, as a result, much more foolish — I owned and rode a motorcycle. It wasn’t the fact that I rode motorcycles that made me foolish. It was the fact that I thought I was somehow exempt from the cliché, “You ride ‘em, you wreck ‘em,” or, more commonly, “It’s not if you’ll be in an accident, but when.”
My ignorance of this warning resulted in not properly preparing for the day that I would be in an accident myself. As a result, when I did have an accident, I was wearing safety gear but was not prepared with how to deal with a last-second cut off, the result of bad judgment from a typical four-wheel driver. Now I have to forever live with the consequences of my failure to prepare by losing the use of my right arm.
I don’t intend to make the same mistake with firearms.
Spend enough time around firearms and you WILL experience accidental and, quite likely, negligent discharges. Many YouTube gun channels have
In the east, many states have already fallen to tyranny, New York being the most obvious example. But here in the west, save for California, we’ve been holding out fairly well.
But of all the western states, if I had to choose the next to fall, I would not in a thousand years have thought Texas would be it. Though my personal experience is by no means scientific and can hold no related conclusion, it certainly seems like I hear more stories like this coming out of Texas than I do coming from California. And that honestly shocks me.
This is relatively old news, but the addition of two dash cam videos plus the recent judgment against the man being illegally detained and arrested in this video brings new perspective. And that perspective (at least my perspective) is that too many
So Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder recently made his backwards attitude regarding gun control very public during an interview with some surfer dude… well, not just ANY surfer dude. This was Mark Richards, four-time world surfing champion.
Of course, by Dianne Feinstein’s standard, Mark’s interview doesn’t count as journalism, so I guess we can just go ahead and ignore it. But I’m one of those weirdos that believes in a free press, so let’s go ahead and take a look at this, shall we?
You’ve no doubt heard of the Mozambique drill. But what about the Stuzambique drill?
If you’ve never heard of it, that’s because I just made it up. But I’ll give you a hint as to what it entails. The Dim Mak (death touch) is a secret martial arts move that can supposedly kill a man with a mere touch. Well, the Stuzambique is not a Dim Mak. It’s more like a, um, well…
Why is it that every game of Truth or Dare I participate in seems to end up like this?
BECAUSE I REFUSE TO LOSE!
Seems like I’ve read this warning in every firearm owner’s manual I’ve looked in, but it’s worth reminding. Always, ALWAYS inspect each round that you load into your magazines, clips, etc.
If you hang around guns long enough, you’re going to come across a bad cartridge. Most of the time the defects are minor and might not even cause any sort of problem if you miss it. But sometimes, well, just take a look…
After being delayed several months, Sig Sauer finally started shipping their recently announced P227.
As soon as Sig announced that they were shipping this bad boy, I went on the prowl by calling half a dozen gun shops in Utah. After several weeks, I was finally able to find one at Get Some Guns & Ammo. Unfortunately, Get Some is some 270 miles away from me in Orem, Utah. Fortunately, I travel to Orem once a month for business (actually my wife’s business, but I always go with her for support).
So, what do I think? Well, you’ll just have to watch my
