Get ready for the Hollerin’ : George Zimmerman not expected to face civil rights charges

The Justice Department is not expected to bring civil rights charges against George Zimmerman in the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, according to three law enforcement officials, despite allegations that the killing was racially motivated.

Can I get a “Duh!” please? Back when the whole racial BS “hang him!” started and the Feds had the investigators do their thing, the DOJ issued a terse memo saying that they were on it but they did not take cases of manslaughter and similar because those were only viable in the particular states.

I expect that this will be eventually picked up by the Social Justice Warriors and some screaming be done. It shall be interesting to see them bitching against Holder though.

Or they will blame Bush.

“Gun control has become taboo issue.” By Joseph Cotto

Decent people should not have their rights infringed on account of a troublesome minority. Surely, most of those who want to purchase a gun through the legal process are concerned about protecting human life or catching a few pheasants, among other wildlife.

Indeed, the sons and daughters of the Second Amendment are urban businessmen who walk to their cars late at night, battered housewives who fear that their estranged husbands might murder them, deer hunters who are trying to feed their families, movie stars who fall victim to the terrors of a violent stalker, convenience store owners who are at risk of being held up, and many more.

While the gun grabbers would not like to admit it, these Americans are the rightful inheritors of the Second Amendment’s legacy.

Pretty decent article and I will have to disagree with the end of it, but worth reading.

Old Mail Order Gun Ad. Not quite a custom revolver.

6 shot repeater


From what I read it is a real gun and not a make-believe. Talk about you cheap Saturday Night Special.  I am guessing it is a .22 cal short and I would not trust my life to that thing.  Interesting to see that it could not be shipped to California, New Jersey and North Carolina, but it could to New York.

The ad is from an early 1960s magazine that it got accidentally thrown out before I jotted down the detail. I do remember it was “Gentleman’s Magazine” of some sort with pictures of women that nowadays would be seen in the Saturday coupon ads you can find in the newspaper.
