CSGV finds out there are civilians with machine guns in the US. Panic ensues.

csgv machine guns

The Cult followers immediately began to tear their clothes and pour ashes on their hair:

Sheila Lechner Seems it’s also pretty easy to convert a semi-auto to full auto….. Another gun law loophole you can drive a truck through.
(Loophole: Something I don’t like and needs to be made illegal)

Joyce Wickizer Nielsen Good to know – will we be seeing them in open carry situations at restaurants anytime soon?
(Yes, cops have them)

Nana Kim Why does Joe Citizen need a fricken machine gun? Thanks NRA.
(Next the NRA is gonna be blamed for Global Warming and dandruff)

Kendrick Williams That’s just the amount that are registered. How many aren’t registered, or do I have to ask that to the manufacturers?
(Well, most are War Trophy gun and you really don’t want to know the estimate of non registered guns)

Dan Moore Time to limit gun numbers and ammo limits? Now they have smart guns. Maybe they should be required. The technology can be retrofitted. Since thousands of gun deaths are accidental, including most child involved deaths, requiring smart technology would make guns way safer. I am ambivalent about private ownership, but adamant about safety, especially the safety of those not involved in violent play with firearms.
(Jesus Dan,  you barely passed LEGOS in kinder-garden, didn’t you?

Adam Gagne The level of fear needed to purchase a machine gun is something I cannot even imagine.
(Actually the level of zeros in your bank account to buy one would scare you)

Vivi Gold I guess is for “hunting” , “sport” and “self defense”?…
(Have her attend Knob Creek would mar her psyche for the rest of her life)

Raymond Bradshaw How long before bazookas are available I wonder.
(OK, nobody tell him they are already available under Destructive Devices. Mortars too)

Alec Gevarter Which is why the assault weapons ban should be re-instated. Civilians don’t need machine guns. They’re too dangerous for what they offer.
(And we see the results of the well orchestrated Josh Sugarmann deception and the reason we can’t let them control the message)

We face dedicated and fanatical ignorance.  I don’t mind people who is not expert or even has no idea on a subject, but being purposefully  ignorant is a different matter.

Not that CSGV and its cult followers matter much…

Building the AK-47 magazine


Over-engineered? Yes. But they last forever. Some years back, I bought a bunch of “rescued” AK mags from the Balkan conflict, some in what appeared to be really bad shape and with dirt and even rest of vegetation inside. Some naval jelly, elbow grease and Krylon later I had a whole bunch of perfectly functioning AK mags. Only two of them were not recoverable and that was because the metal of the body was out of spec. Still I ended up with 2 spares sets of springs, followers and base plates.

Bearded Hipsters be Butthurt. (Language Warning)

She strikes again! Apparently An Open Letter To Bearded Hipsters did not fly well with some.

I made the statement that I am sexually attracted to beards. To those of you who pointed out that this is because I secretly want to sleep with my father, I thank you for your profound insight. You have saved me a fortune in therapy bills. I have done some deep soul-searching, and now realize I also want to sleep with the members of ZZ Top. And Santa Claus. In fact, as long as a man has a beard, consider my vagina open for business. I am also sorry for daring to write on my personal blog about my likes and dislikes. You are all right, that is a completely outrageous thing to do. I am humbled.

are they finally realizing the tide is not on their side?

Democratic state Sen. Loretta Weinberg, who sponsored the landmark 2002 law, said she would ask the legislature to drop the mandate if the National Rifle Association, a fierce critic of smart-gun technology, pledged not to stand in the way of the weapons’ development and sale. “‘I’m willing to do this because, eventually, these are the kinds of guns people will want to buy,” she said.

In response to questions about Ms. Weinberg’s proposal, the NRA issued a terse statement from Chris Cox, executive director NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “The NRA is interested in a full repeal of New Jersey’s misguided law,” he said.

Over No Lawyers – Only Guns and Money,  John Richardson says:

(Democratic state Sen. Loretta)Weinberg makes the same mistake that many in the gun prohibitionist community makes. She assumes that the NRA is a monolithic organization that merely needs to snap its fingers for gun right supporters to fall into line. That may be the case with the astroturf organizations that support gun control but it doesn’t work in a movement where you have genuine grassroots. The NRA is led as much by the grassroots as the grassroots is led by the NRA. In other words, they both exert influence.

But I have a different take: She may be scared.

Think about for a second, why would a Democrat from New Jersey  come forward and try to make some sort of deal with the NRA? They have the state locked tight in their power, they do not need to make any kind of concessions and they can pretty much tighten up more Gun Laws. So why the offer? Because if Illinois ended up having to open up and allow Concealed Carry after being taken to court and if history repeats itself, we will see more pro-gun legislation coming forward in the hopefully not distant future, Senator Weinberg may be looking at the writing in the wall and say “OK boys, we gotta figure out how to ride this monster wave. If we can strike some sort of apparent deal with the NRA, maybe we won’t be challenged in court”

Eventually New Jersey will have to face Federal Court. I also believe that the best way to shake the anti-gun legislature non-judicially is to get Nationwide Carry. Having pressure form both the voters and the court may make the difference.

Guns and Fashion? A Must-Hate Combination!

Ladies, we have a self-defense problem.

How do we carry our guns in our garter belts without an unsightly bulge?

Or tuck a derringer in the small of our backs without detracting from our derrieres?

I’ll tell you how.

via Firearms & fashion — how chic! – Chicago Sun-Times.

I love to see Gun Haters go so off the reservation that the fall into the biased & bigoted talk they accuse us of doing.  The author (Carol Marin) goes on relating events that have no possible connection like the death of a 14-year-old girl and the fashion show and even complaining that the $10 raffle ticket for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation apparently is not high enough…although I doubt she has ever contributed to that charity.

But you have to understand: They hate fashion shows as they portray women as beautifully wrapped pieces of meat for male consumption and they hate guns. A Gun Fashion Show? Apoplexy!

The true level of desperation is measured in the amount of shrill coming out of the Opposition.  And it is getting loud.

What does North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and Michael Bloomberg have in common?

Besides both being short dictators deluded with the idea they are gods, the both think that Stand Your Ground and people having guns is a violation of human rights.

  • “The U.S. true colors as a kingdom of racial discrimination was fully revealed by last year’s case that the Florida Court gave a verdict of not guilty to a white policeman who shot to death an innocent black boy.”
  • “Meanwhile, bills on easing arms control were adopted in various states of the country, boosting murderous crimes. As a result, the U.S. has witnessed an increasing number of gun-related crimes in all parts of the country and even its military bases this year. In this regard, the United Nations on April 10 put the U.S. on the top of the world list of homicide rates.”

And yes, both like to make stats up.
