A couple of my friends have asked if you could move the event closer to the US-Canada border, so that we could shoot across the border rather than having to cross it ourselves.

I think that’s a really cool idea! It might even be an act of war or something. How much fun would that be?
But, it’s not really practical because the production and storage facilities are not mobile. And finding a suitable location might be tough. Washington State is out because of the onerous laws. Idaho doesn’t have a very long border with Canada. This would make it less likely to have a place I could rent on both sides of the border. Montana might have a place, but I don’t know their explosives laws.
But, if I had the time those are all solvable problems. Unless it really is considered an act of war.—Joe]
Boomershooters will get it.
If you don’t, you might want to figure it out.
Chris: We thought we bought a stool. We’ve been sold one leg of a stool. Now they are trying to sell us the other two legs of a stool and I think I’ve got a stick up my ass. What do you think?
Devin: I think I would rather not sit down.
This looks like it should be a good product:
It’s definitely a good ad.
San Francisco recently passed Proposition H, which bans the ownership of guns in homes and businesses.
I for one am comforted by the fact that San Francisco has taken this safety measure. Now when some big dude meets you along a dark street, you’ll know that it’s not a gun in his pocket. The downside of course is that he’s really happy to see you.

IMAO Time Machine: Proposition H – A fun look at gun control
[Note the phrase “Time Machine” in the title. Proposition H was passed 14 years ago on November 8, 2005.
While this quote has a high humor value it has a lot of truth in it.—Joe]
Via Chris Loesch:
Don’t worry. It’s only CGI. The real thing is still classified as Top Secret and won’t be released for field work until Beto is elected President.
In reference to this.
Amusing even though I doubt Beta boy has this much awareness of, well, anything:
Yesterday I saw this sign on a door:
I was struck by all the ambiguity. How many different plausible interpretations are there? Here is my first cut at the set:
- No guns allowed beyond this point unless you go through the revolving door.
- Long guns and pistols are okay but no revolvers may pass through this door.
- Do not use this door, use the revolving door, because of revolvers.
- Revolvers must be taken through the nearby revolving door.
I’d be ok with Beto trying to take guns if he promises to do it personally.
I see two ways this working out:
- He uses his own money to “buy back” the guns at a price people are willing to sell.
- He attempts to confiscate them from unwilling owners and he is arrested, prosecuted, and goes to prison or a mental ward.
Regardless, it’s pretty funny to think about.—Joe]
Apparently @TheBabylonBee is now hard news. I wish them the best in this new phase.

It is, of course, a reference to Beto saying that as POTUS, if given the chance, he would demand a “mandatory buyback” of all privately owned AR-15s.
I agree with Knox. The Babylon Bee has been a great satire site and I will miss the humor. But if the skill they have demonstrated continues in their new endeavors they will do well and I also wish them the best.
At a recent shooting match I asked a few people what they would do if Beto got his way. The near universal response was a laugh and them saying something similar to, “What AR-15s? I don’t have any AR-15s.” Also mentioned was something to the effect of a “Tragic boating accident.”—Joe]

Mit diesem genialen Trick kann man leicht einen Schokoriegel in ein US-amerikanisches Kino schmuggeln!
With this ingenious trick you can easily smuggle a chocolate bar into a US cinema!
That’s very clever! I might try that sometime. However, I’d leave a round in the chamber and have a spare magazine on my belt for a quick conversion to full functionality.
Can gun-owners be faulted in believing when a liberal man marries a liberal woman, it’s a same-sex marriage?

Henny Penny Builds A “Safe” Gun
[While probably not strictly true it’s certainly directionally true.—Joe]
I have it on good authority that conflating Special Forces with Special Olympics in the presence of a half dozen or so Spec Ops people has the potential to be hazardous to your health.
The person who tested this hypothesis told me he was concerned he might be killed for couple of minutes. He managed to talk his way out of the situation without injury but does not recommend others attempting to repeat the experiment.
To the best of my knowledge the reverse conflation has not been tested. I would like to suggest this is a new field ripe for original research with a lower potential for health hazards.
It would violate ex post facto constraints but we can fantasize about it. And it might be fun to suggest it to your local SJW.
I probably like this more than I should.
Some ignorant anti-gun people seem to think the AR in AR-15 means “Assault Rifle”. Some trolls deliberately say that just to get people worked up and to waste their time.
I’d like to definitely set the issue to rest with this post. The AR in AR-15 does not mean “Assault Rifle”.
Here, for present day applications, is the definitive definition of what AR means (given appropriate legal constraints):

Liberals Unable To Pass Background Checks Necessary To Buy The Guns They’ll Need To Take Guns Away From Law-Abiding Gun Owners is satire, but most of the points are completely valid. For example:
“And I know it’s gonna work,” Harris said, “because we’ll be taking guns away from law-abiding citizens. Obeying the law is what they do. It’s not like we’re trying to take guns out of the hands of criminals.”
