“History is written by the victors.”

July 12, 2018

I started reading this at Yahoo, and could not help but to remember the things that I had been taught in school. Not simply the historical items but also the ethical implications on a historical level (yes, it is “a” not “an” check your MLA!)

Much of this I grew up seeing, if not actually participating in. As well as seeing the consequences of such actions. That said? This huge indictment of the United States is an empirical example of Historical Fallacy that also left out some of the truly egregious examples of our history.  Little mention was given to what went on with native Americans, both good and evil. Not a whisper about the slaughter of my ancestors, and other incidents that led to The War of Northern Aggression such as selective taxation. The list goes on…

And so, whether we like it or not it is indeed a truism that “History is written by the Victors,” complete with warts and all…

Let us never forget the utter international embarrassment that was the obama either.

Give them an inch, and they will take a mile!

Regarding ATF’s Proposed Rule on the “Bump-Stock Type Device”
[Docket No. 2017R–22; AG Order No. 4132– 2018]

Copy and paste into the ATF comment page: 

I am opposed to any regulation on bump stocks.

These proposed regulations would declare a “bump stock” to be a machinegun because it allows the gun to fire more than one shot “by a single PULL of the trigger” — that is, by a single volitional function of the finger.

But federal law, at 26 U.S.C. 5845(b), defines a part as a “machinegun” ONLY if it is designed solely and exclusively to allow the gun to “fire more than one shot … by a single FUNCTION of the trigger.”

To state the obvious, a finger is not the same thing as a trigger. And, while a bump stock is in operation, the trigger functions separately every time a round is discharged.

So these regulations are proposing a radical change — as they effectively define a gun as a machinegun even if the trigger resets for every round that is fired, so long as the finger only pulls the trigger once.

While bump stock devices will now be treated as machineguns under these regulations, they also raise serious questions in regard to AR-15s and other semi-automatic rifles — as they are now on the brink of being designated as machineguns by the next anti-gun administration.

In the past, one had to fundamentally change the firing mechanism of a semi-automatic firearm to convert it into a fully automatic firearm.

But now according to these regulations, a bump stock is a machinegun — and it can “readily restore” a semi-auto into a machinegun, simply because the gun owner can effectively fire the weapon continuously with a “single pull” of the trigger. This would invoke the statutory definition for a rifle, which is classified as a machinegun (26 USC 5845(b)).

It won’t matter that a gun which is being bump fired has not been fundamentally altered.  AR-15s will be on the brink of extinction once these regulations go into force.

These regulations dismiss Second Amendment protections, by appealing to the Heller court decision. But the Constitution trumps the Supreme Court — so when the Second Amendment says that the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed,” any limitation of the right for law-abiding citizens should be treated as unconstitutional.

The Stupid runs deep…

June 9, 2018

It appears that there are still politicians that can’t figure out the difference between a full auto weapon, and a semi-auto. Some are in fact so just plain ignorant that they believe that the magazine (the clip for those that are like them) actually make a weapon full auto.

Aside from that they keep calling the National Sell Out Association a radical organization…

Seriously, if gun owners were the problem that they are made out to be? There wouldn’t be any of these traitors to their oaths left alive, period.

Mayhaps a national support your Bill of Rights day should be held where every single anti freedom and / or Liberty politician should be held accountable, and at the end of the day they all. Each, and every one of them start leaking copious amounts of red bodily fluids..? One can only dream of such justice sadly.

The Worst of the worst..?

June 2, 2018

The worst of the worst? Based upon what..? The economy? A total obama made disaster. Say what you want but every move he made, or allowed caused the worsening of a bad thing. National Defense? Are you kidding, I mean really is there any question at all? Really..? Race relations? While far from perfect (are they anywhere in the world?) he sent them to a time that precludes my lifetime. That included Watts 1, 2, and 3. Selma, Birmingham, and the rise of the Klan, and Nazi movements in the 60’s. National respect? Self respect was a joke, and is still in recovery mode. International respect was bought, and paid for by the obama. More than once… Climate change? He has to still be in cahoots with All Gore’s money making scheme because man made climate change has been exposed as exactly that, a money making scheme. National safety, do we really need to go there? He, and his minions supplied Mexican cartels with weapons hoping to raise the ire of the American people to the degree that they would call for totally un-Constitutional restrictions, if not outright bans on personal weapon ownership. The opium epidemic was totally under his reign of terror as well. Need I really continue..?

Some thoughts on the contemporary political correctness of the day

May 30, 2018

If gun owners were the problem things would be different in many ways.

David Hogg would be bacon.

Tar and feathering would  be considered as an alternative for the various politicians when putting a bullet between their eyes only if they were seriously young, and seriously stupid. But only considered.

People would be thought of by the content of their character rather than the equipment between their legs, or the letters that follow their names.

Education would be education, not indoctrination.

Public service would be an honorable vocation not a career.

This is a short list…

Memorial Day…

May 27, 2018

It’s Memorial Day. A day for solemn respect for those that gave all for us to be able to live the lives that we do.
Sure, have a BBQ, drink beer, and so on. But don’t do it for yourself. Do it for those that cannot but gave it all so that you can.

Some people ask…

May 26, 2018

Several people have asked me why I keep the blogroll on the side unchanged. The simple answer is that I do it for memorial reasons. Don’y care for that? Then don’t look.
