There's 'zero tolerance' ...

.
... and then there's zero tolerance:

A Cheatham County father says he had to take matters into his own hands when his daughter was constantly bullied. He's now facing charges for making threats but says stepping in was worth it.
My wife and I have had many discussions about this, and we've told our daughter in no uncertain terms that no one is ever to lay hands on her. If anyone does lay hands on her we've told her that they get one verbal warning before the gloves come off.

I just hope that she decides to take karate to learn some discipline, else I'll have to teach her from what I remember from my Marine Corps days!

Vox advocates raising the minimum wage ...

.
... as a means to protect America:
As a general rule, the Swiss are among the sanest of nations. If you are asking if they have gone insane, that is a good reason to assume you are missing something. Americans who are interested in salvaging any vestige of traditional America should push hard for raising the minimum wage to at least $20 per hour.
He notes that the immigration battle is to allow low-skilled (and therefore low-wage) workers into the US. If the minimum wage is $20 or higher,then those individuals won't even bother.

We're damned if we do and damned if we don't!

I feel for her and her battle with pain ...

.
... but I'm not sure I'd pick Whoopi Goldberg to be my spokeman:
“The vape pen has changed my life. No, I’m not exaggerating. In fact, her name is Sippy. Yes, she’s a she. And yes, I named her Sippy because I take tiny, little sips — sassy sips, even — from her. And with each sip comes relief — from pressure, pain, stress, discomfort,” Goldberg writes.
Now if it were a comedian with some sense, like Dennis Miller, it'd be ok. But Whoopi Goldberg is not the face I'd pick to represent marijuana users.

It is appalling to me ...

.
... that Boehner has any legitimacy left at all:
we’ll find out just how far the House is willing to go down this road in the name of getting their names on something with the word immigration on it. But it’s going to start yet another revolt among the conservative base if something like the DREAM Act makes it’s way through, and this one may start a fire too big for Boehner to put out.
John Boehner has done nothing, nothing to please conservatives; why should he start now?

Reynolds and Kates take the gun-grabbers favorite argument ...

.
... to its' logical conclusion:

We will not enter that debate in this Article. Instead, we will undertake what physicists term a "thought experiment." We will take as a given that the Second Amendment does what states' rights advocates say it does, protecting only the right of states to maintain organized military forces such as the militia and the National Guard, without creating any rights enforceable by ordinary individuals. We will then explore an issue that has been ignored even by proponents of the "states' rights" interpretation of the Second Amendment: If the Second Amendment grants rights to states, rather than individuals, what exactly are those rights, and what are the consequences for the Constitution and other aspects of state and federal relations? The answers to these questions turn out to be rather startling and likely will displease gun control advocates every bit as much as their opponents.
Nobody will like that outcome!

Miracle Max anylizes the A-10 ...

.
... declares it mostly dead:
The effort has banded together some unusual factions — budget watchdogs, soldiers and pilots, and high-ranking members of Congress from both parties — who fear that cutting the program would weaken defense and ultimately cost taxpayers. 
I thought about whether they might show up for sale, but then I thought, 'What good is a gun that can fly, with no gun?!'

I know that many don't want to hear this ...

.
... but this shit won't end until government officials start assuming room temperature:
Unbeknownst to the Barries, the previous owner had remodeled the cabin without permits. So Summit County commissioners voted to condemn the property for wiring and plumbing (even though the cabin has none) and filed for eminent domain. - See more at: http://proteinwisdom.com/#sthash.h6z6hTZR.dpuf

And after all; in the era where the government can force you to buy a product you don't want, how much less of a stretch is it top condemn the wiring you don't have?

Sadly, gun owners continue to be ...

.
... their own worst enemies:
A bill seeking to allow Tennesseans to openly carry firearms in public without permits has been defeated in a House subcommittee.

The House Finance Subcommittee voted 10-1 on Monday night against the measure sponsored by Republican Rep. Micah Van Huss of Jonesborough.
I don't know how to link to the Facebook post, but that's where the real comments are, and where we see the elitism that is the gun rights community.

"Open carriers get shot first."  "Concealed carry is tactically superior."  "You have to take a class so we know you're not an idiot."

I weep for our cause.

This idea ...

.
... has merit:
As a tense situation unfolds in Nevada, an activist from another western state has developed what he bills as “a helpful, if not a total ...outside the box solution” for “reining in federal employees.” Calling it “a useful tool for the states' took kit that should not be ignored,” Montana Shooting Sports Association President Gary Marbut has proposed the Government Workers Licensing Act to exert state authority over federal employees and to require training in rights to be part of their certification requirement.
And like all ideas that have merit, it will be disregarded. RTWT

Marbut notes that states have historically reserved  police power (and it's been upheld at the SCOTUS); it's my laymans' opinion that that is a viable attack on 922(o).

Call to Action!!!

.
If you live in TN, please contact your state representatives (the senate already passed this bill overwhelmingly) and ask them to vote to have HB2409 recalled to the floor to have an up or down vote, then ask them to vote Yes! You can find your rep here.

With friends like these ...

.
... who needs enemies:
"Anybody who wants to play like they're a cowboy with a gun out, to me, is maybe a little questionable," says firearm instructor Joe Cochis, at Shooter's Depot.
So now the bill in TN to remove handguns from the list of weapons one may not carry in public is bottled up in a house subcommittee, and a reportedly neutral governor now has reservations.

But not a peep out of the usual suspects; it's all been FUDDs. So, thanks for that.
