Heard around the compound.

Missus: “Why is it taking you so long to come up with the list of materials?”
Me: “I have the list of materials, I am just trying to digest the price.”
Missus: (looking over the list) “That sounds about right.”
Me: “I know, it just irritates me to hell that a small roof repair costs as much as a brand new Daniel Defense AR Carbine.”
Missus: “Wait till you factor in the labor. That is gonna come up for about the same as an Aimpoint, a dozen magazines and a couple thousand rounds of ammo.”
Me: (See pic below).

 

Hunting over bait

I caught this video online of some private security fending off some Somali pirates from a container ship.

Not bad, needs more 50 cal.  A think a Barrett M82 throwing some API hate at those boats would be a really good deterrent.

Also, starting at 25 seconds in, the guy behind the camera starts bouncing some rounds off the railing he’s hiding behind.

Lesson: cover is important but watch your muzzle.

 

 

Distance is your friend

Two videos have emerged from the Antifa protests of Antifa using bike l9ks on the end of chains as impact weapons like a medieval mace.   They are easy to conceal, hit hard, and don’t attract as much attention as a stick.

And

That whack to the head sounded hard.  The guy was bleeding badly within seconds.   I wouldn’t have been surprised if he had a skull fracture.  That is potentially lethal.

I don’t go to protests. 

If you do, think about wearing a helmet.   A good DOT approved three-quarter motorcycle helmet would be my recommendation.

Helmeted or not, protest or parking lot confrontation over a door ding, DISTANCE IS YOUR FRIEND.   Don’t let someone that angry at you close enough to you.  The more distance they have to close before touching you, the more time you have to react.

Also, if somebody ever tried to hit me with s bike lock, I’m going to shoot them in the liver.  This is why I don’t go to protests, you can’t carry at them.

Bandying around Bans.

Sometimes I am surprised at the narrow mildness in our own side.

Putting aside the political ¬†blunderbuss shit discharge that would be, specially from a President that at least appears to be friendly to the NRA (and he is coming to the Annual Meeting, first president since Reagan), my question is “Why are you throwing around the word “Ban” like the Opposition? You would actually¬†ban and individual to attend a public event because a law you don’t like? Our business is the opposite!

Holy shit people! We are in a constant fight to get rid of all kinds of bans applied to the Second Amendment and the first thing you want to do is use ban the stuff and/or behavior you don’t like? Where is the effing consistency?

Once again around the block:¬†We are not in the business to ban shit we don’t like, we are in the business of removing bans from Constitutional Rights.

If you can’t process that, please step down and let the adults continue the fight. You just go ahead and ride the coattails.

Women, Fists, and Guns

Shannon Watts believes the future is female.

She has taken to Twitter and Facebook to boost her Feminist cred. ¬†She kicked off #Leggingsgate¬†with typical Social Justice Feminist flare about the sexualization of women, policing women’s bodies, etc.

She has made domestic violence and gun crime against women a cornerstone of Mom’s Demand Action.

She’s so woke in feminsim that having The Nuge go to the White House is a threat to women.

One would get the idea that Shannon Watts really cares about women.

She doesn’t.

She’s a Progressive Leftist and only pretends to care about women so long as it convenient to her cause.

When a doctor in Michigan was caught performing female genital mutilation on young girls, there wasn’t a peep from Watts or Left Wing Feminists. ¬†Why? ¬†Because the defense preferred for butchering little girls was “religious freedom for Islam.” ¬†So… crickets.

Well, the other pet group for Leftists right now is immigrants, especially illegal ones.

So what happens when a female immigrant manager in the Left Wing tech company Apple, gets the shit beat out of her by her silicon valley CEO immigrant husband?

A slap on the wrist.

A conviction for domestic violence comes with deportation. ¬† The Left can’t have that, for any reason, so Progressive locals aren’t convicting domestic abusers of the crimes the commit.

California pleads immigrants way down. ¬†New York City won’t hold them for ICE, and lets them go back to their families.

Apparently the danger to women isn’t the “boyfriend loophole” but the “non-citizen loophole.” ¬†All you have to do is be a shade of brown and not a US citizen and you can beat the hell out of your family and Progressives won’t stop you.

For all that Shannon Watts seems to care about domestic violence, she only cares about it when it is a white, American man slapping his wife around. ¬†Then she’ll nail you to the wall and take away every right you have… because feminism. ¬†Be here on a Green Card, or better yet illegally, and your wife can “walk into a door” as many times as you like and Left will have your back… because intersectional feminism.

Watts and her Democrat ilk don’t actually “give a shit” about women or domestic violence, only advancing identity politics.

If Watts does decide to run for office in Colorado, I beg someone who reads this blog form the Centennial State to ask Watts this question at a Town Hall:

“Ms. Watts, you believe that people convicted of domestic violence should lose their right to own guns as per Federal law. ¬†Do you also believe that non-citizens should be deported for a conviction for domestic violence as per Federal law?”

I want to see the answer to that.
