Yeah ...

... right:
Deputy Tyler Brockman was on another call on River Road before investigating a field party further down the road where Ramsey was located. One thing led to another, and that's when officials say Brockman fired four shots, killing Ramsey.
So, Brockman was already going to a call (an accident, which he blew off) when he saw someone suspiciously walking down the road, interrogated  that individual, found out about a 'field party' down the road, went to investigate (leaving the accident call the rub some dirt on your owie), spoke top one driver, let him go, then said something to Ramsey when he somehow wound up on the hood and pumped four rounds through the windshield.

Because he's in fear for his life.

More interesting is that the officers' microphone (that's hooked up to his dash cam system) just happened to not be working. Somehow. We're having the company that made it look into it.

Fat lot of good that'll do; an investigation by the people who depend on sales to those very same law enforcement agencies.

Oh, and the internal police investigation? Well, Officer Brockman said the magic words: 'I was in fear for my life.'

Deputy shoots farm dog in the back of the head ...

... gets fired. Good:
A sheriff's deputy in northeast Texas has been fired for shooting a farmer's dog through the back of the head in an incident that touched off condemnation around the world.
He claimed the dog was 'charging' him.

The dog was an Australian cattle dog, long-used by ranchers of all kinds to help control animals. They're also protective. But shouldn't a deputy in a rural community be more sensitive to the culture of the citizens around him?

I know I'm going to sound terribly naive ...

... but I've got questions.

My local SOT (Liberty Suppressors) recently posted on Facebook that ecen though the eFile system for forms 1 and 4 was down, paper applications were still being processed. I asked the question 'Why does it take so long?' and was rewarded wiht a reply that you pay the tax first, and therefore there's no need for the ATF to hurry. I responded thusly:

AFAIK, the NFA imposes no more in depth background check than what a NICS check would show. Even if you allow for running fingerprints, I received my first GWL in 4 days, including running prints (corporations and trusts have no prints to run) and my renewal was less than 10 (likely because we have the new high-speed low-drag cards).

From it's inception, the NFA passed constitutional muster because it was a revenue (tax) measure (the constitutional dilemma was even discussed in hearings before passage); registering NFA weapons was just a means to collect the tax. I've not read the NFA thoroughly but I don't remember that the ATF is required to conduct an anal exam on applicants. They're only there to 1) register the item 2) collect the tax and 3) send the stamp.

If this is the case, then the correct procedure would be 1) go see David with money in hand 2) David runs NICS check to verify ability to own firearm and 3) take documentation of elegibility to the post office and pay the tax, wherein the post office either stamps your documentation while the ATF sends a stamp or gives you a stamp (they used to do that, ya know).
What am I missing?!
I know that the NFA was somehow 'reconstituted' when the GCA '68 was passed, but I've still not seen where the ATF is authorized to do the anal search.

I mean, in 1933, if you wanted a machinegun you bought a machinegun. In 1934 if you wanted a machinegun, you paid the tax and then bought a machinegun. So why is it different today?

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:
 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.
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.

I am sad that I'm not well-educated ...

... else I could graciously tell people to kiss my ass:
What was initially intended as an honor has now devolved into a moment of shaming. Yet the slur on my reputation is not the worst aspect of this episode. More deplorable is that an institution set up on the basis of religious freedom should today so deeply betray its own founding principles. The 'spirit of free expression' referred to in the Brandeis statement has been stifled here, as my critics have achieved their objective of preventing me from addressing the graduating Class of 2014. Neither Brandeis nor my critics knew or even inquired as to what I might say. They simply wanted me to be silenced. 
That should leave a mark, but I doubt it will.

TN takes a step ...

... towards constitutional carry:
 The state Senate has passed a bill to allow Tennesseans to openly carry guns without a state-issued permit.
The chamber voted 25-2 in favor of the bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Mae Beavers of Mt. Juliet.
But don't worry all of you FUDDS out there ... Haslam will veto.

I was trying to find something ...

... when I came across this:
The ammo was CCI Blazer ammo I got for $18 for 500 rounds.
Yeah, that was in 2011. Ah, to have a time machine!


Whole lotta this ...

... going on:

A man in San Antonio walking home with a rifle on his back gets tased and arrested after being told he's free to go.

Yeah, it's at night but if it's legal to carry openly then it's legal to carry openly.

I suspect that the DA will drop the charges so that preemption can't be challenged, though surely Open Carry TX could bring a suit to have it challenged. Either way the message is clear: carry openly and you should expect to be harassed.

Undeniably ...

... logical:
We will revive them (Crusade and Inquisition) before we will abandon our faith. And while we would prefer to live with both Christian and traditional Constitutional values, if we are forced to choose between the two, we will choose the former without even thinking twice. (Editor add)
Vox is in a whole 'nother intellectual sphere than I, but I never fail to see the logical consistency regarding the trajectory of modern tolerance.
