FBI Bought and Paid For?

Another comment I read recently on Huffpo regarding FBI UCR numbers:
The reports indicate statistics, especially during the Republican administration, were skewed so that crime stats appeared lower than reality and accurate reporting would show. Corrections and updates are being worked on. Stay tuned.

That the NRA influenced political reports during the last nine years to help skew gun stats, misinterpret, is likely. Money and political clout count for a lot in our nation today. How much does it cost to lie?
Now, it being Huffpo, I would normally just put this down as the deluded ravings of another ignorant PuSHer. The reason it caught my attention, though, was that our occasional troll made the exact same claim a few months ago. He stated he couldn't remember where he read it. The recent poster has so far refused to provide the source. This leads me to believe it's from some gun control group press release or 'report'.

Has anyone else heard this or point to where it came from? Assuming it's true, that is, and it's not just two deranged minds coming up w/ a similar fantasy.

Dennis Henigan Asks "Why"?

Starbucks Sticks To Its Guns. Why?

Simple Dennis.


4+ million NRA members

>100K Brady Campaign supporters.

Do the math.

The Bill of Rights...

Citizens...have the right to work
Citizens...have the right to rest and leisure.
Citizens...have the right to health protection.
Citizens...have the right to maintenance in old age, in sickness, and in the event of complete or partial disability
Citizens...have the rights to housing.
Citizens...have the right to education.
Citizens...have the right to enjoy cultural benefits.
Citizens...are guaranteed freedom of scientific, technical, and artistic work.
Citizens...have the right to take part in the management and administration of state and public affairs and in the discussion and adoption of laws and measures...
Every citizen...has the right to submit proposals to state bodies and public organizations for improving their activity, and to criticize shortcomings in their work.
..citizens...are guaranteed freedom of speech, of the press, and of assembly, meetings, street processions and demonstrations.
...citizens...have the right to associate in public organizations that promote their political activity and initiative and satisfaction of their various interests.
Citizens...are guaranteed freedom of conscience, that is, the right to profess or not to profess any religion, and to conduct religious worship or atheistic propaganda. Incitement of hostility or hatred on religious grounds is prohibited.
The family enjoys the protection of the state.
Citizens...are guaranteed inviolability of the person. No one may be arrested except by a court decision or on the warrant of a procurator.
Citizens...are guaranteed inviolability of the home. No one may, without lawful grounds, enter a home against the will of those residing in it.
The privacy of citizens, and of their correspondence, telephone conversations, and telegraphic communications is protected by law.
Citizens...are obliged to protect nature and conserve its riches.
It is the ... duty of promote friendship and co-operation with peoples of other lands and help maintain and strengthen world peace.

Sounds wonderful right? A nearly perfect society. There's some qualifiers however:

Enjoyment by citizens of their rights and freedoms must not be to the detriment of the interests of society or the state, or infringe the rights of other citizens.

Citizens' exercise of their rights and freedoms is inseparable from the performance of their duties and obligations.

It is the duty of, and matter of honour for, every able-bodied work conscientiously in his chosen, socially useful occupation, and strictly to observe labour discipline. Evasion of socially useful work is incompatible with the principles of ... society.

Citizens...are obliged to safeguard the interests of the...state, and to enhance its power and prestige.

Translation: You can do anything you want as long as it 'benefits society' as determined by the State. If you don't agree and do what the State says, all your rights and freedoms are null and void.

This is the Bill of Rights as included in the 1977 Soviet Constitution.

Alot of the same rights that certain groups are demanding here, normally the same groups that would support the removal of the one that's missing from the list above. So how close are we to having those qualifiers codified in the US?

Being one with Nature...

Sorry I haven't posted in a while but I've been spending every waking moment of my spare time the last few weeks stuffing mags in anticipation of carrying in our National Parks. I live just a hop, skip and a jump from a couple and I didn't want Feb. 22nd to come around and find me unprepared, and yes, I have alot of spare mags.

So I decided to take Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday off so I could enjoy complying with the new law.

Went something like this...

Monday morning I woke up in a drunken stupor, which is par for the course so a quick trip to Starbucks was in order. Got a mocha with a shot of Hazelnut and some coffee cake for the extra sugar rush I was after. After pissing in the potted plant in the corner next to some guy who smelled just like I had crapped my pants, I whipped open my black trench coat, unholstered my Carbon-15(with the 120 round drum) and started waving it over my head like the American Flag while trying to slur my way the Pledge of Allegiance. I couldn’t remember most of the words so I just replaced them with some impressive cussing, some trademark worthy racial epithets and a few armpit fart noises for emphasis at the good parts.

I started dancing a jig and touching my naughty place while espousing my true love for the mermaid in the logo when a small turd launched out of my pant leg and hit the top of the menu behind the counter. It stuck for a sec and kinda slid down all herky-jerky like before losing grip on the bottom molding and fell slow motion style onto a tray of scones.

Someone in a green apron asked me to leave. Being the “turn the other cheek” kinda guy that I am, I turned for the door while yelling something about writing the corporate HQ and thanking them for such a great product.

On the way to the National Forest Park, I shot 2, 3, 75 road signs just to limber up and get in the mood. I used the Taurus Judge with the itty-bitty .410 because I deplore vandalism as I define it. I mean, my taxes paid for those signs; I can shoot ‘em if I want.

Lady luck smiled on me that day, evidenced by the fact that within 100 feet of crossing the border into the park, a Bald Eagle just sat on a fence post, scanning for vermin. I slammed on the brakes, causing an accident and broke out the 30.06 since we was talking big game now.

Bald Eagle absolutely exploded. My developing chubber was reward enough, but when I saw that round pass through and take out a migrating California Condor, ricochet of an ancient petroglyph and then lodge in the temple of a Park Ranger as he was explaining the virtue of Smokey the Bear to a bunch of Girl Scouts?

Well, that was Heaven for me.

The camping spot I had used last year was occupied by a bunch of nuns so I shot them all. Nuns are usually quite conservative but they readily hike up their habits and show a little skin when they try to run.

Since the cooler was full of cheap beer, I didn’t pack any food, but poaching was as easy as firing at anything that moved. First thing to fall was a bull elk with trophy antlers. I nibbled around the edges a bit but I didn’t want to fill up on one critter when I already had 17 other species piled up around the campfire I had built out of dead nuns.

It’s nice to get away from the concrete jungle once in a while and enjoy the simple pleasures in life but now that it’s legal to punch holes in the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, I might have to travel out east and destroy some historical landmarks. Learning about history is a hobby of mine, but destroying it one FMJ boat-tail at a time will always be my passion.

Make no mistake, this is how they view us. Keep that in mind.

A Man's Murse

The netbook is ungainly in the laptop bag and backpack when I'm not carrying anything else or just small stuff. What it fits in nicely is an over the shoulder range bag.

I'll leave it up to the readers. Which patch should I put on it for its premier at IGOLD? Take the poll on the side.

Precipitous Losses?

A regular PuSHer over on Huffpo is trying to delude himself that gun control is charging forward,the NRA is dying, Heller will be overturned soon, and McDonald will be a win for the Brady Campaign.

I did say he was delusional.

One of his main arguments was the old VPC myth of the decreasing gun owners. He described a drop of 10% of households over a course of 40 years as 'precipitous'. Never mind the fact that the total numbers have increased over the same time period.

Anywhoo, that got me to looking at the Gallup poll again. It had a difference in households and total of nearly +10% in 2006. That's over 10 million households and people more than the NORC report. Looking at the historical numbers, the Gallup poll does not show a consistent drop like NORC but a cyclical rise and fall between 40 and 50% +/- and a much larger amount of 'No Opinion'.

I'ld say that's more than your normal sampling error.

Throwing Sh!t on the Wall Hoping Some Sticks

The gun banners are really spooked by Mcdonald and are throwing every nonsense gun bill they can up in the Illinois House and Senate. Bunches of them are exact copies of eachother hoping one or two might sneak on through. More licensing for dealers, semi-auto bans, private sale bans, microstamping, you name it.

Just to be clear, there are some good bills listed as well. Some are CCW related but there's a smattering of others as well.

Time to start writing your Senators and Congresscritters if you haven't already.

Shotty Fun

Friend of mine and I headed over to a local gun show so we could pick up the new toy he bought yesterday, a Charles Daly Field Tactical 12ga. Of course we then had to take it out in the lovely weather to try it out.

Old Koolaid containers color the snow most nicely when hit w/ a slug.

The camo jacket I was wearing must have been really effective since not a single photo of me shooting turned out.
