Quote of the day—AR15.com News

A chief aim of the Constitution as drafted by the Constitutional Convention was to create a government with enough power to act on a national level, but without so much power that fundamental rights would be at risk. It is quite obvious that limit has been overstepped, and electing Hillary would essentially re-create the same greedy, selfish, tyrannical government that the King of England and Parliament had back in the 18th century. Then she could begin dismantling the Constitution piece by piece.

I hope the FBI does their job, and that the DOJ does theirs. I hope that the evidence that was purposely deleted from the private email server makes its way to the American people, and that the establishment and its corrupt politics are eliminated. I still have hope that all is not lost in our federal government, but I have no confidence.

AR15.com News
August 15, 2016
[As gun owners I think the best that we can hope for from the November election is that Hillary is soundly defeated and the next president nominates judges who respect our rights. Hillary is extremely unlikely to be indicted let alone spend time in jail.

Discussing this with Sean Flynn a couple weeks ago he told me that he was of the opinion Hillary could be elected even if she was in jail and that only if her health problems manifested in her death before the election would we be able to avoid another Clinton presidency. I told him I thought her supporters would be willing to elect her corpse. He agreed I was probably correct. However there are much more successful political prognosticators than either Sean or I who claim the election is already over in a landslide for Trump.

The bigger issue of the Federal government exercising far more power than it was given by the constitution and infringing upon rights at such a broad scale it’s difficult to fathom appears to be beyond our reach through mere elections. I’m of the opinion our “best” hope for that is through the economic collapse of our federal government. It appears the collapse is inevitable but I see no clear path to something better arising from the ashes.—Joe]

SVRC action shooting match results

Snoqualmie Valley Rifle Club (SVRC) puts on USPSA like matches once a month during the summer (they wimp out from about October through March). I usually don’t go because I go to the steel matches at Renton on the same weekend. I could do both because the SVRC match is on Saturday and the Renton match is on Sunday, but I would rather not use up both days shooting. Two weeks ago I had other plans (helping move Barb’s son Max to Bellingham for college) on Sunday. So, I decided to shoot at SVRC for the first time in at least 10 years, perhaps 15.

I would rather they would run USPSA matches and report classifier results but they don’t and some of the stages didn’t quite match USPSA requirements and they don’t shoot any classifiers. But they were fun stages and to my surprise two guys I had met 20+ years ago at the Microsoft Gun Club were shooting as well. I probably see Sean Flynn two or three times a year anyway and Steve Morrow perhaps once every three to five years. But they were both there. They both reported they had not shot at the SVRC matches in something like a year or more and so it was quite a coincidence we all showed upon for the same match. We got into the same squad and were able to chat some before and during the match. It was nice to hang out with them.

Here are the stages. Some were changed slightly after I took the pictures:

Happy Feet 2

WP_20160910_09_35_09_Pro
Three Bills

WP_20160910_09_36_26_Pro
Ballistic Boogie

The above stage was a little odd in that you had to shoot the steel and the two outermost targets from between the barrels in the foreground (start position was “hands on Xs”) free style and shoot the rest of the targets strong hand only from behind each of the barricades. Magazine changes using both hands were allowed.

Everyone shows as shooting minor power factor even though many of us were shooting major. This is just one of the USPSA rules they vary on. Had I remembered this before the match I would have brought the ammo I use for steel matches, improved my times some, and tried to be more accurate.

Overall (including Open and other divisions) I came in 8th out of 35 shooters.

I knew I was shooting well. Several people commented that I was doing well at the time. And there were a couple Open division shooters in our squad who I knew to be good shooters and my times were close to theirs. But, I didn’t really expect to win my division. I have never come in first in any USPSA type match in this state before. I did make some mistakes. I can’t count as fast as I can shoot and there were three targets which required six shots on. On two of them I fired seven shots. And I almost forgot the mandatory reload between two of the targets which cost me some time. Then there was a difficult disappearing target which I fired at twice and only got one D-zone hit. I should have just skipped the target entirely and gone for a better time.

Still, I’m very pleased with the results.

I took video of Sean and Steve and told them about it after the match was over. Sean offered me $10 to delete his video (I declined). Steve didn’t seem at all enthusiastic about me posted his on YouTube so I didn’t do anything with his video either. I had some sort of problem with the camera on the stage Barricade Two Step and didn’t get my shooting of that stage. The other stages turned out okay though:

If you got me one of those shirts and I wore it to school, would you do a war dance on their desks if I got in trouble?

Xenia
January 1, 2006
Comment to Speaking of political correctness
The shirt in question:
[I’m of the opinion advocates for freedom don’t do enough “war dances”. We just want to be left alone and when someone or some group infringes upon our freedom the easiest way to be left alone is to let them have what they want. The confrontation required to assert our freedom and reclaim it is against our nature.

To the authoritarian exercising control over others and confronting people is how they get pleasure in their lives. Remember what Marthe Kent said:

And it is a thrill; it’s a high… I love it; I absolutely love it.  I was born to regulate.

When they are successful in infringing up on the freedom of others it gives them an incredible high and they want more. Their thirst for power will never end until people stand up to them and eliminate the pleasure they get from infringing upon our freedom. I’m thinking one of the new tools I’m going to put in my “tool box” when confronted by anti freedom people is to tell them because of their confrontation I’m going to donate another $100 to the NRA. And if they continue, I’ll start counting in $20 increments, $120, $140, $160… And perhaps for those who are particularly persistent I’ll tell them because of their attack I’m going to give away an “assault weapon”, without a background check, to a woman who will appreciate it. If they continue, start adding in the boxes of ammo.

Using logic and facts doesn’t have an impact on them. Pushing their emotional buttons will make it painful for them in ways that demonstrating they have little more than ignorance and a childlike belief system in imaginary solutions can’t.

Or as Glenn Reynolds is fond of saying (as well as the Obama administration) , “Punch back twice as hard.” They attack with rhetoric and I will counterattack with resource allocation to what they believe to be among the most effective and evil political organizations in the country. Their rhetorical actions will generate the possibility of real political  consequences.

In answer to Xenia’s question, over ten years ago, I asked what size she wanted, she got the shirt (obviously), she wore it to school, and I never had to do a war dance for her. I don’t know if she still even has her shirt but mine is one of my favorite shirts to wear when I go through TSA screening.—Joe]

Quote of the day—Jesse Winton

Consider, for instance, the fact that gun crime rates typically have not risen in regions when the number of concealed-carry permit holders increases. That point goes a long way to convincing millennials that the problem isn’t simply the number of guns, it’s who is holding them.

Moreover, it’s worth considering that during the two-decade period from 1992 to 2011, violent crime rates fell nearly in half in the United States while the murder rate fell dramatically as well. Why is that significant? Because it was a period when gun laws nationwide generally became less restrictive (notwithstanding the experience in several major urban centers).

For all the hysterical talk about gun violence in the United States, the truth is that our nation ranks relatively low in terms of gun murders per 100,000 people. It is impossible to reconcile that with the fact the United States leads the world in civilian firearms ownership.

[We need to keep changing the culture. It’s our best hope.

Someone at work came up to me yesterday and said, “It’s time to blow off some steam around here. Can you arrange some range time for a group of us to go to the range together?”

Uh, YES!

I reserved the training bay at West Coast Amory for us. I’m pretty sure there will be people who have never shot before attending as well as people with their own guns and former military and law enforcement people as well.—Joe]

Quote of the day—Sean Flynn

The emblem of “Stronger Together”, dating back past Roman times, is the fasces. “Stronger Together” is so central to their ideology that the Italian Fascists adopted the fasces (fascio in Italian) as the basis for their name and as a symbol of their movement. Note that being ancient and all that, the fasces has been used by many others for different purposes.

But that doesn’t mean I could resist composing this:

This could be a problem

The IEDs in New York and New Jersey may have been made with Tannerite. Forbes has an article about it:

First, to be clear, the name Tannerite is appearing in news stories attributed to unnamed law enforcement sources. Tannerite residue was reportedly found on the two bombs discovered in New York over the weekend. Other bombs linked to the suspect, Ahmad Rahami, who is now in custody, may have used different explosives. These reports may be wrong in part or whole.

The company that makes Tannerite is skeptical. Steve Yerger, an investigator for the company, says he has not been able to confirm with the FBI or other law enforcement agencies that Tannerite was in fact found in the New York bombs. What’s more, he says he doesn’t know how it could have been used.

In the company’s tests, says Yerger, Tannerite can only be detonated by the impact of a high-velocity bullet. A burning fuse, an electrical current, a hammer blow; none of those will work, according to him. There have been no reports that a gunshot was used to trigger the bomb that exploded in New York on Saturday.

I don’t believe that Tannerite can only be detonated by bullets. I would bet that a blasting cap of the correct type would detonate it just fine. Of course blasting caps are not easy to come by. But, still, I think an improvised blasting cap could be constructed that would do it.

There are a lot of people using Tannerite for recreational shooting. Certain people, mostly those afraid that someone, somewhere is having fun, have been trying to ban or put severe restrictions on Tannerite. But, prior to this, to the best of my knowledge Tannerite hasn’t been intentionally used to harm people or the property of others. People have done a lot of stupid stuff with it, but mostly they have hurt themselves and made messes they couldn’t clean up. If it was used in a terrorist attack, it could be a big deal.

But, of course, Amazon and the black market can easily supply what the free market can’t.

Quote of the day—TJ Martinell

A vital lesson from this gun control war is that the unless action is taken in the states themselves to nullify and resist unconstitutional federal gun laws, the threat will exist perpetually. Gun rights activists no doubt fought with the best of intentions and attempted to thwart gun grabbers at every turn, but their strategy demonstrated that despite victory after victory at a federal level, and even at a state level, the enemy eventually recuperates and makes another attempted assault on our right to keep and bear arms. The only way to neutralize the threat is by getting states to pass Second Amendment Preservation Acts.

Hillary/Kaine Book Not Even Suitable For Target Practice

From Stephanie:

HRCAmazRvw01

Weak, weak sales this week for Hillary Clinton’s new book, Stronger Together.
Co-authored with running mate Tim Kaine, and, presumably, a ghostwriter, the book sold fewer than 3,000 copies in its first week of release.

Undoubtedly, the Amazon reviews are an incredibly better read the the book itself:

“Makes a great fire starter for the woodstove.”

“I bought this book for target practice but every time I took a shot it fell over. It’s too crooked to even stand up!”

“I started to buy this book but after reading the reviews I picked up another box of 9mm instead!”

Quote of the day—Jonathan

“Assault weapon bans” can’t work mechanically, haven’t worked historically, and won’t work analytically.  Given that record of abject failure, why do “gun control” advocates continue to call for these pointless and ineffective bans at almost every opportunity?

Perhaps your safety is not actually their priority?

Quote of the day—Kim_Jung-Skill

It is bad for an imperfect government to be able to predict all crime. Some of the greatest steps forward in human history were only made possible by people being able to hide information from their government. If the church had access to Galileo’s research journals and notes we could be hundreds of years behind in our scientific growth. If the government had unlimited access to the networks of civil dissidents blacks may have never fought off Jim Crow. If King George had perfect information America would never have been a country. There is no government on earth that is perfect, and therefore there is no government on earth that can act responsibly with unlimited access to information. A government is unlikely to be able to distinguish between a negative and positive disruption to it’s social order and laws, and it therefore follows that an unlimited spying program can only hinder the next great social step forward. Don’t fear the surveillance state because you might have something illegal, fear the surveillance state because it is a tremendous institutional barrier to meaningful societal progress.

Boomershoot 2017

Via Stephanie:

PlayWithFireApril23

The direct link to sign up is http://entry.boomershoot/. There are still over half the shooting positions available. And it’s not all long range shooting. Friday and Saturday evenings are the High Intensity events which are from about 20 yards away. This is a rapid fire, chest pounding, event that lasts less than five minutes and results in the detonation of hundreds of targets. See the videos here.

These are the Clintons. If you’re a Clinton, you lie. It’s what you do. Expecting them to not lie is a fool’s errand. But given the amount of time the Clintons have spent in politics lying to the public–somewhere in the neighborhood of three decades–they really ought to be better at it by now.

Quote of the day—Paul Koning

The goal of the Illinois criminal legislature isn’t to fix crime. They clearly could do that if they wanted to, but they do not want to. Their actual goal is to disarm honest people, to render them defenseless against criminals, and to make the impact of crime worse so they will have more excuses for more invasions on the people’s liberty. What they deserve is not just being kicked out of office, but also being swiftly charged with, convicted for, and hanged for treason. Treason it is, because treason is waging war against the people or giving comfort to the enemy, both of which they are doing.

Quote of the day—Marshall Lewin

Whatever the case, the simple fact that politicians push this garbage when they know it won’t work—and when they already have everything they need to fight crime—is a disgrace. It’s a direct danger to your right to own a gun and ammunition with which to defend yourself and your family from the criminals that they refuse to control.

And the best way you can stop that dishonest and dangerous attack on your rights is to throw every one of these crooks out of office on Election Day this November.

The Truth About Illinois’ Ammo Serial Numbering Scheme
[I have nothing to add.—Joe]

Dear Hillary: Please Pander To Disabled Voters. You’re One Of Us.

The following is an open letter to Hillary Clinton from Stephanie:

Dear Hillary Clinton,

You cater to woman voters. Because you are a woman.
Why not pander to disabled voters? You seem awfully disabled.

Your team of medical professionals, armed security guards, and even a bollard can no longer prop you up without you still taking a fall.

Bollard

Seize the moment, Hillary. Please come out of the disabled closet. Ease our concerns about you falling: we urge you to use a cane, walker, or wheelchair.

Given your health history, you’re going to to keep toppling, again and again, whether you like it or not. You are, what they call, a fall risk.

That means when you were hospitalized 2012/2013 for taking a tumble, the hospital made you wear a bright yellow wristband emblazoned with, “FALL RISK”.

Wristbands

Those brandishing bands are standard hospital protocol, whether you’re a patient in a private, lavish hospital/hotel room at New York Presbyterian Hospital on the VIP floor (like you were a few years ago) or a patient-sufferer at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. It’s all the same.

You’re no longer an asset, Hillary, but are a tripping liability. The un-eraseable, un-wipeable truth about you is eternally stored in The System records. Everyone knows you’ll forever be a bright yellow wristband.

So embrace it!

Look, I know how it feels to overcome the stigma of using a cane, walker, or wheelchair. I started using a cane in my twenties; was prescribed a walker in my thirties. Now, in my forties, I sometimes use a wheelchair. Who cares?

You’re way older than me, and more than ready for at least a cane.

Hillary, you’re accustomed to an aid always at your side. A cane is essentially the same, but it’s a durable medical device, though you might have to pay out of pantsuit pocket for it.

Hillary, let go of the shame. An independent woman need not lean on a staff of 10-20 mostly men to prop her up.

Hillary, you can do it! Grab a cane! Rock a walker! You’d even look great in a wheelchair, I swear.

Be brave! Be bold!

Be logical: save taxpayer money by letting go of your hordes of health handlers. Reclaim your independence!

Join us, Hillary!

Stand together with We, Thee Disabled, who do not have private traveling doctors or nurses surrounding us, as you do.

Hillary, please, stand beside We, Thee Disabled, even though we don’t have armed security like you do, 24/7. Boo-hoo for us; lucky for you.

But good news: lots of us cripples carry concealed guns for self-defense, being that we’re such easy targets for thugs. Whatever you do, Hillary, please don’t disarm the disabled.

The point is, Hillary, you have so much going for you, what have you got to lose?

This is the perfect time to seize the moment, and, rather than hide your health woes, please grab a cane, step forward, and stand together.

Are you with us?

Sincerely,
Stephanie Sailor
