Gun Grabber Round Up

We are moving quickly from tragedy to farce.

Update:  I forgot about the Congressional candidate who comes from a "gunny" family who decided to "destroy" her perfectly legal AR-15 rifle by turning it into a completely illegal AR-15 pistol via the trick of sawing through the barrel.

Since she cut the gas tube, it's no longer functional as a semi-automatic but it's a perfectly serviceable single shot.  Just work the charging handle after each shot.  Last I checked, she is now under investigation by the ATF.

I wouldn't get excited.  By now we all know there are two sets of laws in this country.


They dropped the mask a little too quickly, I'm afraid.  Naked Nazism still makes the neighbors talk.

This profoundly stupid idea has already been shot down by by James Woods,

You might have a little trouble getting Jewish Americans to embrace this look. Do you have some shiny jackboots and brown shirts to go with it? Guessing maybe you skipped history class while you were shilling for the @DNC.

Pity. I could have had a lot fun with this.


I have finally worked out a big chunk of why the Left rolled so hard after this shooting. Stoneman Douglas was a "rich kid's public high school".

You know the type.  The parents are upper middle class so they can't afford to educate their kids privately because they have over-invested in their houses.

(Parkland), (a)ccording to a 2016 estimate, the median income for a household in the city was $131,340, and the estimated median house value was $596,212.[10] Males had a median income of $103,942 versus $81,425 for females. The per capita income for the city was $56,793. About 2.0% of families and .4% of the population were below the poverty line, including 3.2% of those under age 18 and none of those age 65 or over.

Says a lot about this community, no? This is shooting took place in a school belonging to America's gentry class.

As George Orwell put it:

To belong to this class when you were at the L400 a year level was a queer business, for it meant that your gentility was almost purely theoretical. You lived, so to speak, at two levels simultaneously. Theoretically you knew all about servants and how to tip them, although in practice you had one, at most, two resident servants. Theoretically you knew how to wear your clothes and how to order a dinner, although in practice you could never afford to go to a decent tailor or a decent restaurant. Theoretically you knew how to shoot and ride, although in practice you had no horses to ride and not an inch of ground to shoot over...

The residents of this city see themselves as part of the elite. Hence the Election of Sheriff David Israel and his formation of a department of politically correct Barney Fifes.

This is the kind of town that produces people who go on to have careers at CNN, The Slate and (the other) Vox.

This shooting didn't happen to church people in Texas or Country Music people in Vegas. This was an attack against their own kind and in the heart of one of their safest of spaces.

I'm wondering how they are going to spin the veteran hostage/murder/suicide shooting. I'm about sick of the PTSD excuse. Maybe because no matter how hard the VA tried, I wasn't letting them pump me full of drugs on a false diagnosis. Ever notice its the Army that has disgruntled shooters, deserters, transgender freaks or muslim murderers?

I wouldn't defame Barney Fife like that--Barney would have run right into that school, fumbling for his single bullet as he went.

I stand corrected.
