Double Dose Of Canadian Facepalm.

From the Nainamo daily News, we get this hard-hitting piece of journalism:
Nanaimo RCMP discover Soviet assault weapons
Routine investigation of shed near Nanaimo home uncovers pair of SKS Tula semi-automatic rifles.

Two Soviet-era SKS Tula semi-automatic assault rifles, a scooter valued at $3,000, and an estimated $15,000 worth of bicycles were hidden in the shed, along with a quantity of heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana. 

OK, I get that it was the lair were bad guys dropped their stuff and a bit of sensationalism sells, but for the love of Pete, I am sure that Canada has access to Google. Will a quick search about SKS rifles for accuracy’s sake would be so painful?

“If they fall into the wrong hands, now they’ve got a semi-automatic weapon,” said Sgt. Sheryl Armstrong of the Nanaimo RCMP.
“Or if some young child finds them and thinks they’re a toy, and there’s ammunition, look out.”
Guns capable of firing one bullet after another have been used in mass shootings.
“Any time you have something capable of firing more than one bullet (in rapid succession), it’s concerning,” Armstrong said.
“If you can fire off (multiple) shots just like that, it has the capability of harming more individuals than a single shot.”

Well, the Sherlock Holmes of British Columbia has spoken.  OK, Mr. Holmes does not deserve to be associated with Sgt. Armstrong who probably got her rank due to Politically Correct means and not because she is a master cop or even a Keystone one.  And I bet she is issued a single shot muzzle-loader dueling pistol for her patrols from the office to the ladies room and then on to Tim Hortons.

But that is not all. Apparently Darrell Bellaart, the “journalist” that probably managed to stop sucking Lord Calvert out of a straw to write this “article” was asked if he could make a correction on the obvious firearm mistakes.

His answer tells us a lot: Journalists are as dumb past Nord des Lignes than down here.

And yes, I ran out of Canadian references. I’ll save Sgt. Preston.

Oregon: Are Legislators subject to drug use checks?

My guess they are stoned out of their skulls and come up with stupid gun control laws. House Bill 3200 apparently classifies pretty much any modern firearm as an assault weapon and bans them. Same with those evil high-capacity ammunition clip devices magazines. orders registration, removal from the state, destruction or surrender of those eeevil weapons…so like the best hits of New York and Connecticut.

But they just don’t wanna be a cover band so they added safe storage provisions (which are yet undetermined so it mean anything goes for the Law) and this beauty:

The department (of State Police.. or Police State, not quite sure) may conduct inspections of registered owners of assault weapons and large capacity magazines to ensure compliance with the storage requirements of section 4 of this 2013 Act.

Not only we shall urinate on your Second Amendment Rights, we shall defecate on your Fourth Amendment Rights too! Sixteen Idio…legislators support this bill , no one will be present if there is a need to kick down doors to confiscate weapons.

Maybe they should go an pee in a cup?

Weird dream…

Still trying to digest it.

So I am with my wife back down south of the border and I am giving her a tour of my old Catholic School’s original location that has not been in existence since 1973 when we moved to a new location,  As I am telling her stories about those days as a youngster, I realize she has suddenly disappeared. Before I can even worry, a pimpled faced teen shows up with a jalopy of an old Ford sedan whose model I can’t figure, gets out and while handing me a note, tells me to get it.

I get in and open the note but I can’t make what it says. I noticed a black case on the seat and I picked up it to reveal a Glock pistol, model unknown…but somehow I know that it is not a 19 or a 17 and that it came from my wife. Not knowing what to do, I drive out of the high school and after three blocks I end up in a part of town I know is at least 15 miles from where I departed. I park in a high-rise condo tower and get out, somehow knowing that I must get to a certain apartment. I reach the apartment, the door is open and I get in. On a table I find another black box that holds another Glock. The markings say it is a Glock 64 (?) and it is just a tad bigger than a North American Arms .22 revolver and it actually has a magazine that carries 3 rounds of 9 mm. On the floor I notice what it looks like a 5 feet long black square tube but turns out to be a 250 round Glock magazine and I somehow now that it will work in the Glock 64 Deringer.

With these new items, I head downstairs where the original jalopy is now gone and I see  the same pimple faced youngster now dressed as a valet next to a production car that looks like a Le Mans race car (OK, I know where this one comes from, I watched Steve McQueen’s Le Mans not too long ago) I hop in and I realize that the windshield is not really a windshield but a screen as in TV/Monitor and I think “Now that is cool!” I also realize that there is another black box and yes, it is another Glock but this one in .357 SIG. Now I have an unidentified Glock, a Glock 64 that only exists in my disturbed head, a Glock 31 and a very long Glock Magazine.

I start the futuristic car, the screen comes alive with a full image of the outside and a Heads Up display of the car functions and gauges. Super cool! I drive off and I hit a speed bump which makes the screen go stupid and goes from outside view to daytime TV and then infomercials, then cable news, then some game show and keeps flipping like a speed freak was holding the remote.

I stop the car cussing the quality control of the manufacturer and as I am stepping out, I finally wake up.

That will be the last time I’ll have a sausage, bacon and cheddar biscuit before hitting the sack. And I don’t own Glocks.

It looked something like this but in a cobalt blue with gold lines

S.C. Rep. Harold Mitchell: “Don’t believe the hype” (Actually we don’t believe you.)

South Carolina Representative Harold Mitchel penned a letter to the editor saying that people were wrong about his bill:

Recently, I introduced H.4801 to correct one portion of state law that is being abused. The goal of my bill is to return to a more traditional standard concerning lethal force in self-defense.

Much of what has been said about my bill in recent news articles, media headlines and conservative radio talk shows has been false and misleading. Headlines using language like “Bill Would Repeal ‘Stand Your Ground’ ” and referring to “SC Gun Law” have misled voters and elected officials.

via Sunday’s letters: Don’t believe the hype | GoUpstate.com.

So I go to the bill he introduced and what do I find?

(C)    A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in another place where he has a right to be, including, but not limited to, his place of business, has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his ground and meet force with force, including deadly force, if he reasonably believes it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily injury to himself or another person or to prevent the commission of a violent crime as defined in Section 16-1-60.

In case you never seen this particular way of writing, in a proposed bill, any section that is “strikethrough” means it is to be removed from the law if approved. Underlined means to be added to existing law.

So, Rep. Mitchell’s bill actually kills Stand Your Ground but in his “twirly” little mind he swears it does not.  How does people like him live with their head held high? Oh yes.. no shame.

 

This is what Gun Control looks like in real life.

Twenty-year-old Yakiri was incarcerated in December for killing Miguel Angel Hernandez Anaya, who she says – along with his brother Luis Omar – kidnapped her, took her to a hotel, then stabbed and raped her. In a moment of struggle, Yakiri turned the knife on Hernandez Anaya, cutting his throat. He died later that same day. When Rubio went to the police to report the rape, she was charged with murder and held without bail. Those charges were reduced this week.

via Mexican woman jailed for murder after killing her alleged rapist in self-defense.

“But Miguel, damn it! She did not use a gun! Why do you call it Gun Control?”

Because if you have not figured out by now that Gun Controls is not about guns but about control, you need to wake the hell up and in a hurry. To have compliant subjects, they need them at the mercy of two elements: The State and the Criminals.

If a Government cannot control the possession of firearms, it makes its use, even something as basic as using them for self-defense, a crime.  The result is that you will be so concerned with the aftermath of an attack that you rather take your chances with the criminal than the State. And when you demand that the State step up and do what they are supposed to do which is to ensure your safety, they will respond in the affirmative in exchange for a bit more of you dwindling freedoms.

Ms. Yakiri will in all probability be set free, but the lesson has already been taught and absorbed by the rest of the population: We Are The Government and We Have The Monopoly On Defense and Violence. You shut up and hope the rapist uses a condom or is disease-free and lets you live.

The tool is not the important part, it is the self-reliance mindset that needs to be brought under control.  And that is why the Second Amendment is so thoroughly hated.

So what happens when Elite Warriors are sent back in time?

Alexander’s Bridge is a movie project by Panteao Productions in which a team of Army Delta Force Operators travel back in time and find themselves in the middle of the Civil War.


I am a sucker for Time Travel (big Quantum Leap fan) and one of the most understated movies of all times in my opinion was The Final Countdown where the USS Nimtz finds itself around Pearl Harbor just before the Japanese attack.

Panteao Production is doing the Indiegogo fund collection thing.  The name must be familiar to gun owners as they have one of the longest and coolest line of firearms training videos anywhere featuring the best of instructors in our field.

If you can help with the movie, do so.  Act of Valor was budgeted at $12 million, criticized and poopoed by the “experts and ended up grossing over $70 million. Hurt Locker, Oscar winner and delight of the critics only grossed $17 million.  Good war movies made by good people make money and do not insult warriors or ourselves.

And enjoy this clip from The Final Countdown:
