Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. Oh an “economist “ lecturing us on history….. nuff said, except bleep bleepin bleep bleep.

  2. The Economist is a leftist rag just like the NYT. Except they’re Brits, so it’s worse.

    1. There was a time when I picked up a copy at the airport before heading off on business travel. It was always a bit left-leaning, but I valued their economic and political analyses.

      Then during the Trump campaign, they went and pushed the lever hard left, right to the stops. Suddenly whether an idea made sense or not, economically speaking, if it was from the Trump campaign or from the right in general, it was a Bad Idea, Never Work, Don’t Do It.

      I haven’t picked up a copy in about five years now.

      1. As soon as they endorsed Obama in 2008, I dropped it like a hot coal.

        What was refreshing about the Economist was their (almost) evenhanded treatment of the political spectrum. The Economist was, to my knowledge, the only major news outlet that had never endorsed a political candidate. During 2008, their coverage of politics went for (almost) evenhanded to leftist. And that endorsement was too much for me.

        Have not read it since.

  3. In colonial times in the New World, anyone who had enough money could buy a musket or pistol from any one of the plethora of gunsmiths who crafted the firearms in their little shops. Game was plentiful in those days, and very much needed for food and pelts, especially on the fringes of settled land. To imply that a permit was needed by frontiersmen is ludicrous in the extreme.

  4. I have nearly an entire history of gun control laws until the 1930s and this is horseshit.

  5. “Gun owners, the truth is we may never know who fed the Constitution into this shredder…”

  6. A British, ostensibly economic, journal lecturing Americans on firearms, our history and Constitution. Somehow ignoring what happened when the British Army tried to seize the muskets, cannon, and gunpowder stockpiled in Concord, Massachusetts. Hint, the British Army got chased back to Boston with their collective tails between their legs, and more than a few corpses left along the way.

    1. Almost as much fun as a non gun owning Manhattan dwelling corp lawyer lecturing my cpl holding, just-bought-an-AR-at-gun-show spouse about “the gun show loophole”.

      He JUST missed a beer stein skull ringing. Not due to the disagreement, but due to simply how arrogantly stoopid he was. “FOCUS.” (Fook Off ‘Cuz You Stupid”)

    2. Indeed. I really like Oleg Volk’s image for that particular event, with that particular message.
