AR-16D Rapidfire Nail Gun

New nail gun, made by Dewalt. It can drive a 16D nail through a 2 X 4 at 200
yards. This makes construction a breeze; you can sit in your lawn chair and
build a fence. Just get the wife and kids to hold the fence boards in place
while you sit back, relax with a cold drink, when they have the board in the
right place just fire away. With the hundred round magazine, you can build
the fence with a minimum of reloading.

After a day of fence building with the new Dewalt Rapid fire nail gun,
the wife will not ask you to fix or build anything !!!

Quote of the Day

From Kaveman on the latest Brady "Assault Weapon" regurgitation:

I read the whole thing last night and took a sip of vodka every time I spotted a lie. This morning, I woke up in my neighbor's yard naked and covered in what appeared to be a mixture of brake fluid and BBQ sauce.

The police said they would send me a video after they put it on youtube.

UMPC blogroll down

Yuri Orlov pointed out to me that the Unorganized Militia :Propoganda Corps blogroll has disappeared after what he says was a hacking attack on the site. I've e-mailed Linoge of Walls of the City to see if he knows what's going on.

Update: The site says "Sorry, we're down for maintenance. " and the blogroll seems to have re-appeared.

Scary Mentalities

On another message board, there was a discussion about tests to allow for voting. Most supports went along the ideas of 'current issues'. I brought up, assuming a fantasy world of no bias, a basic gov't test similar to the ones we took in High School and which all immigrants need to take would, in my opinion, help make voting decisions more educated. This since not all issues are considered such across the board while the function of gov't is a universal.

After some discussion on how would this 'guarantee' improvement, a claim I never made, a very vocal opponent stated that voting for someone based off of liking what clothes they wear was, and I quote: valid a reason as any other when you are exercising an absolute and unqualified right.

Barring the fact that voting is in no way an "absolute" nor an "unqualified" right (citizenship and not being insane or mentally retarded come to mind as just two 'qualifications' that are pretty universal) the idea that voting for someone because you think they're sexier than their opponent is equitable to understanding the issues and how they would affect society just plain scares the hell out of me.

Not that I'm really surprised that people think that way but that they'd announce and defend it.

'Gun Guys' funny.

Obama is pandering to the NRA according to Gonzo*:

Sen. Barack Obama panders hard to the NRA in a new ad running in Ohio, Pennsylvania and North Carolina according to Politico.

In the ad, the voiceover says that "Barack Obama supports gun rights, our right to defend ourselves, and the Second Amendment."

Obama has, unfortunately, taken the gun lobby's bait and framed his position on guns in terms of "rights" and "self-protection" versus fighting the lobbyists and special interests who control the agenda in Washington. Hmm, is that really "change we can believe in" Sen. Obama?

Josh Horowitz is working out of a broom closet w/ unpaid interns because he can't afford the rent and Paul Helmke is begging anyone, anyone at all, to bring up gun control so he can pretend he's doing his job as the Brady Bunch president. Even Barack "minor wording issues" Obama knows where the votes are when it comes to firearms nationally.

Hee Hee.

ACORN Voter fraud

Office raided in Vegas:

Nevada state authorities seized records and computers Tuesday from the Las Vegas office of an organization that tries to get low-income people registered to vote, after fielding complaints of voter fraud....

But it's not the first time ACORN's been under investigation for registration irregularities. The raid is the latest of at least nine investigations into possible fraudulent voter registration forms submitted by ACORN -- the probes have involved ACORN workers in Wisconsin, New Mexico, Indiana and other states.

In 2006, ACORN also committed what Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed called the "worse case of election fraud" in the state's history.

In the case, ACORN submitted just over 1,800 new voter registration forms, and all but six of the 1,800 names were fake.

More recently, 27,000 registrations handled by the group from January to July 2008 "went into limbo because they were incomplete, inaccurate, or fraudulent," said James Terry, chief public advocate at the Consumers Rights League.

While a different group in Ohio are shuttling people to polls to try and skirt residency checks.

Now who's associated w/ this 'community organizing' again?


Anti Idiocy of the Day

From our ever favorite Brady Sycophant 'Kelli' over on Huffpo:
You repeatedly bring up the state of NJ with respect to a semi-auto model 'Marlin 60' (& I'm assuming it's many, many variant) ~ which is considered even by some gunowners as not the most practical assault rifle for hunting (eg., it's "overkill").

Yes. The venerable .22 cal "Assault Gun". "Overkill" for hunting.

Behold the inner workings of the ignorant.

"Minor Wording Details"

Just as Obama dismissed wording that banned single-shot and Dbl barrel shotguns in the IL Senate, it just follows the pattern of "Assault Weapon Bans" throughout the nation as well as Illinois. It also shows that it takes people who actually know what they're talking about to make them fix it.

For example. California and copycat Denver both banned the "Encom CM-55" and "H-93" firearms. Neither of which existed. California fixed the typos in later modifications to the law while Denver just deleted the entire section of specific firearms (38-130 H ) after a lawsuit upheld the ban but told them to drop the list when many didn't fit the 'generic" definition.

McCarthy et al prove that they really have no clue what their talking about when they want to ban "things that go up" while Kennedy talks about banning 30.30 Winchester as "armor peircing ammo".

Intelligence tests are illegal for voting. How about ones for running for office?

There's a new acronym in town.

The former "Special Operations Section" (SOS), named so after the cries of the people they kidnapped and robbed, is allegedly being replaced by a brand spankin' new group of "Elite Only Ones" with a neat sounding title right out of a GI Joe comic. The Mobile Strike Force. (MSF)

The new leader of said "Strike Force" has an impressive resume. Let's see if he's up to playing Chicago politics w/ the likes of Jackson, Sharpton, Daley, and Weis.

Intimidation? Yeah, right.

Obama has his lawyers attempt to threaten TV stations and censor his opposition. The result. Ads in even more markets w/ another juicy little tidbit to add to it.

Fairfax, VA-Today the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) expanded its advertising campaign with the release of additional commercials further detailing Sen. Barack Obama’s long anti-gun record in battleground states across the country. The NRA-PVF commercials began airing Monday in Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Minnesota and Michigan....

In an attempt to suppress free speech rights protected under the First Amendment, Obama's campaign has threatened television stations to stop airing the NRA-PVF ads under threat of revocation their FCC licenses. NRA-PVF has provided documented evidence to support the statements about Obama's record in the ads.

Commercials may be viewed at

Obama and the Second Amendment

He says he thinks it 'creates' and individual right.

He hasn't always thought so as a member of the Joyce Foundation board.

I'm the NRA, You're the NRA, We're all the NRA

War on Guns has an update on the VCDL case against another township that can't figure out the concept that open carry is legal in Virginia.

The article he links to shows clearly that it doesn't take intelligence or common sense to be in politics:

Councilman Barclay C. Winn, who is a hunter, said the guns-rights group's actions are precisely why he won't joint the NRA - the powerful lobbyists the National Rifle Association.
Ah, so he won't join the NRA because of his problems w/ the VCDL? That makes sense. That's like saying :I have a problem w/ PETA so I won't join the ASPCA.

And this idiot has apparently been making decisions for the banking industry:

Riddick and other council members weren't aware of the financial settlement with Moore. "Before we issue another $10,000 check, we should go to the highest court in the land," he said.
Yep. Instead of cutting a quick check and trying to get your police to actually know the law, let's try and spend multiple times more on a lawsuit that you'll lose.

See, I might understand their ignorance if this was the first time this had happened. But this is the SECOND time the police had harrassed this same individual.

The VCDL is going to eat these guys alive.
