Traveling

I am still in California.

The whole place has not gone into the ocean yet.

I got that going for me!


Travel: San Francisco

I'm on business travel this week in California. It's a good trip because I get to see my Brother that lives here. Stay at his house, eat his food and drink his wine!

Here are a few observations so far.
  • Going places and not being able to carry makes me itch.
  • TSA security only took me 10 minutes total.
  • I don't even have one pocket knife.
  • Old school 737 with lots of leg room. No one in the middle seat!
  • No TV. No wifi.
  • I thought the millenials were going to get Kuntzman PTSD.
  • Peopl constantly worry about the fires and Earthquakes.
  • There are Bug out Bags by all the exits in my brothers house.
  • I will never get a good sleep pattern here.
--So there will not be much shooting content this week. Like a lot of weeks.

What to do in stead of something

Don't Profile Islamic Radical Terrorists Males Between 18-35.
Imaging that the sex offender list was managed like the Terror Watch list.

"Mr. Johnson looks really creepy to me while he's walking that little dog, officer." The he goes on the list.

That is basically how people get on the Terror Watch list. NO Due Process.

So why would these fools in congress even consider something that would in never stand up in court. Why would they waste millions and millions of tax payer dollars on a complete non-started?

Because they can look like they are doing something in stead of actually doing something.

--How about deporting foreign nationals that are on the Terror watch list? Start there. 

The Problem with the No-Fly-List

This issue is basically one of due process.

There is no transparency with the way people end up on these lists.

This is the worry. Suddenly all NRA members are put on the list. Hillary has called the NRA her greatest enemy. This administration has used the IRS and other agencies to harass conservative groups. Why not use the TSA to mess with gun owners.

There are hundreds of stories of people that landed on the no-fly-list and their nightmares of trying to get off it. Everyone remembers Senator Ted Kennedy being denied a flight because of the no-fly-list.

--I believe in due process. Even for assholes.

 

Developing Narative

The liberals heads are spinning as more details regarding the Orlando Killer are revealed.

Now there are reports that he was gay.

Why are Progressives choosing Islam over the LGBT community?

To me it doesn't matter what his sexual preferences or confusions may have been.

Radical Islam is the author of this event.

There will be another flaccid attempt at gun control that will get no where. But I think there may also be an effort to censor the Internet. That is a bigger worry. Liberal Fascists want to control the media more than guns. We see it already. Talking about, more specifically, criticizing Radical Islam will get you banned on Facebook.

--Will ignorance abounds...


Reminder

I need some peace today
As the Gun Control Machine knocks the rust off and begin to spin up I just want to remind the world of a few things:
  • A bad guy with a gun was stopped by good guys with guns
  • Radical Islam hates the LGBT community
  • Gun Free Zones are soft target magnets for evil
  • Blaming the gun is like blaming the airplane after 9/11
  • This was the worst attack by Radical Islam since 9/11
 --So angry today. Apologists for Islam, please stay out of my line of sight.

Orlando, Pulse, Quotes

I woke up this morning to find that the worst attack on the US by Radical Islam since 9/11 happened overnight.

Everything is pissing me off. Quotes are light this week:
  • Islamic apologists
  • People that blame the NRA
  • Blaming guns not people
  • Gun Free Zones
This was Jihad. It was an act of war.

A right is not what someone gives you; it's what no one can take from you.
- Ramsey Clark, U.S. Attorney General

Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for the government but illegal for the citizenry.
- Thomas Jefferson

Government is a disease masquerading as its own cure.
- Robert LeFevre

Nations Gun Show

I am planning to go to The Nation Gun Show today.

They have a new Website!

I am going early because I'm in search of a case of Subsonic .300 Blackout. Last time by Saturday afternoon it was almost all gone.

I expect it will be very crowded and sales to be brisk.

If you are considering an AR of any kind, I recommend you buy it now. Not because Clinton might get elected.

--Because, you know... Zombies...


Gun Porn

A friend emailed me this pic. I don't have any details but is sure pretty! It's an AR15 SBR in 5.56mm with an EOTech and a suppressor.



Trains in DC

The DC Metro subway system begins a major series of repair work work this week.

This mean there will be slower service, bigger crowds, more stress while commuting and I fear more violence. They plan on extra police, but if thugs decide to take it up a notch and start shooting, it doesn't matter.

This will also mean more traffic on I66 and longer daily drives for me.

--More coffee...
