Why would a conservative blogger ...

... say something like this?
There's little to no trust for most elected Republicans. And for good reason. 
Because of things like this:
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has decided her one and only priority is expanding her[] state's Medicaid program under ObamaCare and she'll veto all other legislation until lawmakers cave and pass it.
Republicans ... Whigs ... can't happen soon enough.

Oh yes, laws were broken ...

... but I don't think anyone will charge these Only Ones:
The investigation will attempt to determine why the LAPD's SWAT team, which has around 60 members, purchased over 300 specialized handguns from Kimber Manufacturing. 
Because those officers could personally benefit from the sale of those firearms, which means they were 'engaged in the business'. Without FFL's, I'm sure.

Move along, nothing to see ...

You think this ...

... will stop the decline?
At today's annual meeting of Time Warner shareholders held at the CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia, National Center for Public Policy Research Free Enterprise Director Justin Danhof, Esq. confronted Time Warner CEO Jeffery Bewkes over his company's bias and partisan positions regarding the Second Amendment.
 Hmmm ... probably not:
"Bewkes said he would strive to do better and that CNN's goal was to present the news in a non-partisan way." 
It's too bad that even when confronted with evidence that the media are failing, they simply double down.

So NOW it makes sense ...

... that Gibson was raided and not C F Martin:

Interestingly, one of Gibson's leading competitors is C.F. Martin & Co. According to C.F. Martin's catalog, several of their guitars contain "East Indian Rosewood," which is the exact same wood in at least 10 of Gibson's guitars. So why were they not also raided and their inventory of foreign wood seized?

Grossly underreported at the time was the fact that Gibson's chief executive, Henry Juszkiewicz, contributed to Republican politicians. Recent donations have included $2,000 to Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and $1,500 to Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.

By contrast, Chris Martin IV, the Martin & Co. CEO, is a long-time Democratic supporter, with $35,400 in contributions to Democratic candidates and the Democratic National Committee over the past couple of election cycles.
I know there are a lot of folks who believe that Gibson was guilty of some infraction of the Lacey Act, but it's moot now; faced with the full weight of the government against them, Gibson punted.

And who can blame them? The government can ride roughshod over any and all targets, for an unlimited amount of time.

Are we out of the awkward stage yet, Claire?!

Happy Memorial Day!

While you're eating your bbq and drinking your adult beverages, take a moment to thank the men and women of the armed forces who have given their lives for you and I.

It wouldn't surprise me at all ...

... if Bloomberg were found floating in the Hudson:
Mayor Michael Bloomberg cursed out the chief executive officer of a taxi company who won a court case against the city and pledged a post-mayoral revenge against the entire industry, the CEO and one witness said.

“[I will] destroy your [expletive] industry,”
Not at all ...

The time hass come ...

... to treat these advocates as advocates, and stupid to boot!
"Can you see in your mind's eye a way that this might not have been political, that this was a misguided stupid way to sort, but that they didn't intend it to be some kind of political attempt to harass the Tea Party?"
That was the monumentally stupid question Candy Crowley asked of Sen Rand Paul on Sunday.  Sen Paul is much more polite than I could have been.

If there was ever a good reason to deny unionization to public service employees ...

... the IRS scandal is it!
In the 2012 election cycle, the IRS union gave its money this way:
For the U.S. Senate:
Total to Democrats: $156,750
Total to Republicans: $1,000

For the U.S. House:
Total to Democrats: $391,062
Total to Republicans: $23,000
Giving money in a more than 20:1 ratio to one party (any party) is the very definition of a government agency that has become politicized.

And the IRS will be the enforcement for Obamacare ... we are truly fucked!

Is it time ...

... to shoot the bastards yet?

As the hearing progressed, gun-rights supporters grew frustrated at the legislators move to amp measures that would only pertain to law-abiding gun owners and not the criminals they aimed to stop.

In a particularly heated exchanged, 2nd Amendment advocate James Kaleda, 36, was asked to keep his comments relative to bills being heard. “I am on the bill. And I will be heard,” Kaleda said. But Committee Chairman Donald Norcross (D-Camden) called Kaleda out of order.

“This hearing’s out of order,” Kaleda replied.

Within moments, a visibly disgruntled Kaleda was forcibly escorted out of the committee headquarters by law enforcement.
Part of the reason that we gunnies have resisted calls for rebellion is the American idea that we can petition the government. So what happens when the government won't let us?

I make these comments about shooting and killing in an offhand way; I don't mean that we should strike willy-nilly. That said, I do favor a more ... physical ... approach to keeping our representatives in line.

In a just world ...

... it wouldn't make any difference:
But as court records and testimony have shown, the power tool companies have rejected the safety advance for another reason: They are worried that if a new way to prevent severe injuries became widespread, they would face a wave of liability suits for accidents involving conventional saws.
This story is about the SawStop brand of table saws; you know, the ones that won't cut into a hot dog.  But it goes to the way this country now thinks about anything that even a little bit dangerous.

In a just world, people would be held accountable for their decisions, and the fact that only one company makes a 'safe' table saw would have no bearing on those who bought 'unsafe' saws.

Alas, that's not the world we live in ...

I like it when ...

... we're able to turn the tables:
I like nothing better than to use the gun prohibitionist's own resources to send a pro-gun message to Congress. The Giffords-Kelly organization, Americans for Responsible Solutions, is now providing one such opportunity.
John took the pre-loaded and pre-addressed email to congressmen and changed the message to one more amenable to the gunnie position.

Well-played sir ... well-played!

Three kidnapped women had forced abortions ...

... via beatings:
So it does appear that if those bodies are found (or even if they're not-- witness testimony can establish the deaths) these guys may get the needle.
The needle is much too good for these fuckers. I suspect only the Chinese could keep them alive during torture for 10 years. SI think we should let them try, anyway.

Aaron's monthly opportunity ...

... for low-to-no cost shootey goodness!

A wise man once told me ...

... to be a good blogger, be a good commenter:
Even if you’re not explicitly into the God-thing, you must recognize the importance of humility in a civil society, i.e., “I want control only over my own affairs; I have no business trying to arrange yours, because I can’t possibly be that wise.” Or further, one must recognize that the human soul is sovereign and ultimately answerable to Nature’s God. At Cornell, I couldn’t help noticing that many of those who “killed God” did so to take His place as the Ultimate Moral Authority. “Don’t follow those Jesus-freaks,” they’d advise. “Follow me instead. It’s way hipper.”
Dicentra comments on Jeff's post on Waking the Dragon by Barry Snell. I agree with all of his points and would even add a couple.

I can't remember who it was who posted (maybe Robb Allen?), but the thrust was that the Left makes it hard to even have a moments' reflection after an atrocity like Sandy Hook; as soon as you log into Facebook or read the online news, all you hear is screaming and dancing in the blood of innocents.

Snell rightly calls the Left out on the reasons why we can't have a dialogue about guns, and it's all the Left's fault.

We already knew this ...

... but at least it's getting to be common knowledge:

Having just won their revolution, in which privately owned firearms played such a critical role, and mindful of the potential for their new government to potentially become tyrannical, the purpose of the Second Amendment was to make sure that the people of the United States would have the means to rise in revolt once again, should it become necessary.

That's what it's really about. It's not about hunting weapons; it's not about the "National Guard" (which isn't a militia). It's about everyday law-abiding citizens having the ability to resist a tyrannical government. And with that deterrent in place, we've managed 230 years without our government descending into tyranny (though it's come close).

And that's why Progressives hate it.
Yup ... nothing to do with controlling crime, that's just how they try to sell it to the public. Not that controlling crime is bad, it's just that gun control doesn't do anything to control crime.

Bad happenings on my mountain ...

There was a bike race in my area this weekend, and a fatality. The rain was terrible.

Some of the participants have the right perspective:
"The sport is not without risk, and unfortunately we had a fatality," said ride participant Joe Baird of Kentucky.
And Joe isn't the only one:
"Some of the times you think that maybe I shouldn't participate right now, maybe we should just throw in the towel, because it was really unsafe," said Raymond Jennings of Dallas.
 Maybe I shouldn't participate ...

The comments are the typical 'Bikes should stay off the road' vs 'We have Rights!. I won't get into that mud pit now, but at least the media in this case chose to quote some who displayed some respect for reality.

Vox points to ...

... the elephant in the room:
There will be war, whether anyone truly desires it or not. There has always been war and there always will be war, the arrogant pretenses of the totalitarians and their self-serving promises of peace on Earth notwithstanding. As Vegetius wrote: Si vis pacem, para bellum.  The Union cannot be saved because it no longer exists in the hearts of men.
Mike Vanderboegh talks about this possibility (nay, eventuality) constantly, and I sadly, agree with him. Vox has been talking about it more and more.

What's interesting to me is that there is a slowly-growing trend for bloggers and some editorialists to mention civil war as a more and more likely possibility.

I really hope it doesn't come to that.

I'll weigh in ...

... because some don't fully grok the implications:
Really hard to get too excited over this since the plastic gun hasn't been shown to last very long. - Ace's ONT
This is what those on the Right, but who are not gunnies always say.

Obviously they haven't heard about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

First, the ability to produce your own firearms means that gun control is most sincerely dead. Yes, it's a technology that needs to be developed but make no mistake, it will be.

Second, the ability to produce your own firearms, even a single-shot means that the government can never fully have the upper hand in any confrontation. They may have fire superiority but they will never win when those under their thumb can hit [Print] and at least give the feds problems.

The human animal recognizes the need to defend itself - some only look as far as the government for protection. Some of us look ... farther down the thought continuum.
