Media Bias

Well the media now admits what we all assumed for a long time.

Journalists overwhelmingly support Democratic candidates.

Can this be a conflict of interest. Of course it is.....but don't expect real journalists to care....they are convinced that their personal feelings, attitudes and financial support will not in any way sway their reporting.....Dream on.....!

Bloomberg The Turncoat Again

Well America's Anti-Second Amendment mayor Bloomberg of NYC is now switching sides again.

First he was a Democrat, ...then he decided he wanted the NYC Mayor's he ran as a Republican.....Now he wants to be now he is switching from Republican to Independent status.

I predict...he will announce his run for the White House.....and that this will propel Fred Thompson to the White House.

No self-respecting semi-conservative could ever vote for this shallow, elitist, egotist, megalomaniac.

Gun Bill Moves Forward in Congress

Efforts to prevent the mentally ill from getting guns are moving forward in Congress.

All eyes are on this bill.

Will Senate Democrats let this bill get passed without ugly amendments?

Handgun Limits

Well, New Jersey is considering joining the ranks of 3 other states which limit handgun purchases to one per month.

So what's so bad about this?

Having lived with these restrictions for some time, I personally see no issues.

Buying one gun per month gives most folks the ability to defend themselves from most anything.

The reason for the limit - it may reduce straw purchase activity for illegal buyers (i.e., gangs etc.)

Is there any proof that this restriction is saving lives? I don't think so. But as far as handgun restrictions go, this one looks worse than it actually is.

Many argue that once in place the limits will change to "one handgun a year" or "one handgun every 10 years". Don't think we need to really worry about that.

And why not worry?

Because it politics. And most everyone knows that you can only push gun control so far before it becomes a political liability (Democrats know this).

When gun control running amok, is no longer a political time bomb....then worry...worry a lot.

Illinois - A State of Mind

I now have a better understanding of why CCW isn't happening in the state of Illinois.

Seems like Chicago liberals have a stranglehold on all Second Amendment issues.

So why have the good law abiding citizens of this state put up with this for so long.

Obviously, gun rights groups are so far ineffective in getting attention.

Perhaps their voices will be heard in the next round of elections. (Wait a minute....Doesn't that Obama guy come from that state?....Oh well.)

Mosin Around

Surplus rifles are sometimes surprising, in terms of history and accuracy.

The Mosin-Nagant 1891/30 is such a rifle.

Millions were made by Russia in WWII and they helped save the USSR from the Nazis.

No one will claim that this weapon is superior to a Mauser design. But it's very functional and exhibits decent accuracy.

I recently took my Mosin to the range shooting at 100 yds with cheap Wolf ammo.
This 5.5 inch black circle ended up with 9 shot within 3.5 inches. Not bad for a gun made in 1944, using standard Russian ammo. All shots were from a sandbag rest with iron sights.

You can get these guns cheap. Mine cost $69 with all matching serial numbers.

These guns are fun to shoot, inexpensive to own, and can be scoped for hunting.

Registration Mania in California

Well California here I come....or should the title of the song be California there I never go!

Seems, Calif. Pols think people need to be checked out when buying ammo and a detailed records need to be kept. For what purpose? Obviously no real practical reason, other than to make politicians feel good that somehow this will reduce crime?

I think its time to start a national registry of flaky people, those with superficial thoughts and behaviors, those that distort the national culture, those that inhibit clear thinking and overall civil behavior. I think we can start this registry in California and maybe it will save some lives.
