#Enough w/ the Faux Outrage

The Brady Campaign to Keep on the Lights posted this:
 and all the outrage follows on how horrible it is and how the NRA are terrorists blah blah blah. 

So where's the Brady Campaign marching down the street w/ their hundreds of thousands of followers?

Where's Shannon Watts and her million$ of marchers? 

Where are the Giffords?

Where is Ladd Everitt or Josh Sugarmann? 

Where is BLM?

Where is Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?

Where is Obama to proclaim all his 'sons'?

Where are ANY of the so-called 'leaders' of the anti-gun movement?

They're playing golf or sticking dildos on posters or screen printing prisoner orange shirts to help pay the bills.  IOW they're nowhere near the violence nor will they ever be.

Range Therapy

Talked to my mom today. She told me a story I had not heard before. 

Shortly after we lost my dad to a work accident, I bought my mom a gun to keep in the home since she was now alone and the neighborhood had been going downhill.  Since she was inexperienced w/ them, I took her to the range to get her familiarized enough w/ it so she could use it in an emergency.  She didn't do bad.  Not great but well enough that she could use it.  

She told me today that what was going on in her head that day was all the usual things that one experiences after a loved one's death.  Anger, sadness, fear.  All those wonderful emotions that sap the will from a person's life.  

What mom did is what many of us enthusiasts know about.  She took out all those negative emotions on those pieces of paper at the far end of the range.  The concentration of lining up the sites.  Feeling the recoil of the firearm in her hands.  The flash from the barrel.  The perforated targets we pulled back to the line.  

She told me it took all the anger and sadness out of her and she felt good again. 

That's something the other side will never understand.

Grassroots vs Astroturf Cash


So the Giffords’ Bloomberg funded anti-gun group ARS merged with the Joyce funded Law Center to Prevent Gun Ownership. They then made a big push in Illinois to legislate gun shops out of business through taxes, fees, bureaucracy , and mandates. They were joined by several other ‘grassroots’ anti-gun organizations located in Illinois that basically consist of a PO Box and some more Joyce Foundation money (ICHV and “People for a Safer Criminal” specifically).

The sponsor of the bill attached it as an amendment to a ‘shell bill’ that was titled about illegal waste dumping. I’m sure you can all see how clearly that relates to firearms. The anti-gun groups tried to take a page from the ISRA and Illinois Carry playbook and file ‘witness slips’, an online form that one can state support or opposition to a measure. Even after all their push, they were outnumbered in ‘witness slips’ 5:1 + (amend. 1- 5017:985).

As the amendment was questioned and criticized, new amendment after new amendment followed, rushed through rigged ‘committees’ as assigned by anti-gun Rep. Mike Madigan, six in total so far. In each and every case, the witness slips showed massive opposition against the bill, the 4th 1433:93, the latest amendment at 393:16. This, during the height of the workdays and all the nonsense being rushed through the legislature. Firearm rights advocates continued to rally in opposition while the anti’s diminished to mostly paid professionals like Colleen Daley, Mark Walsh of the ICHV and Ron Holmes of ARS.

‘Polls’, as shown again in the crapumentary “Under the Gun” keep touting that ‘gun owners want more gun control’ but when it comes down to actual voting or shows of support, it’s the complete opposite. It must be that ‘silent majority’ again as they try to prove their negative.

The only times ‘gun control’ can win is when they dump millions of dollars into it and lie to the public.

Update:  A 'protest' against the favorite bugaboo of Chuck's gunshop turned up about 6 anti-gun protesters to over 30 pro-rights folks (alerted to such by a night before email from the ISRA/IllinoisCarry)

@CSGV's Ladd Everitt Takes Selfie at the #NRAAM

So apparently Ladd Everitt of the CSGV snuck into the NRA annual meeting and took a selfie (NSFW).  One of the commenters took offense:


Truly a beautiful statement as they then proceed on deleting dozens of comments that don't toe the party line to go along w/ the countless people they've blocked/banned from their FB page.  That's 'all voices' in their world.  

I truly hope that their partner organization continues their efforts.  It truly shows the mindset of the PuSH'ers.  We have facts, evidence, and millions of actual members.  They have d!ck jokes.

Mules

I've been a little muse-less on the next session of Ancient Dread so filler is some resources I've been using.

The party was going on an expedition through the jungle and needed supplies since it was unknown how much they would be able scrounge/hunt along the way.  W/ much research and some GM hand waving, a general rule of thumb was created.  For three people, three mules would be needed to carry two weeks or so of food and water w/ about 50lbs of room for additional supplies.  For every additional mule added, one more would be needed for water.  For an arid environment, twice as much water (hence double the water mules) would be needed.  A healthy mule can carry about 250lbs of gear so the breakdown would be such:



3 mules 3000gp

Mule #1: Water 1
8    4 gal casks    32 Gal    256 lbs  96 gp
1 month oats/grain 1lb/day 25lbs  15 gp

Mule #2: Water 2
8 4 gal casks 32 Gal 256 lbs  96 gp
1 month oats/grain 1lb/day 25lbs  15 gp

Mule #3: Food/Gear
1 #1 Rak Pac 40 lbs 100gp
5 Rac Pack 1a food refill 110 lbs 200 gp
200’ 800lb rope  28lbs 50gp
1 month oats/grain 1lb/day 25lbs  15 gp 


Again these are based on averages and 'rules of thumb'. Adjust as necessary.
