Blago's on his own

As his attorneys quit his impeachment case.

Poor baby.

UM Patch Prototype

As was noted, a new patch is being designed. Here's the initial design:

A few tweaks are still being worked on (including bottom wording) but this is the general idea.

These are the final designs.

Thoughts? Comments? Pre-Orders? :)

World War 2 Veterans: Viva Italia

US Army Intro to Italian Language Manual TM 30-303 circa 1943:

A very important little document which assisted in leading up to this:

Detroit Free Press. June 5, 1944.

AK's, RPG's, and Grenades! Oh My!

As has been reported, more PSH in regards to Mexico and guns.

Basically we have two options.

1) There really are gun shops that are selling RPG's, Grenades, and AK-47's by the hundreds to the Mexican Drug Cartels. The thousands of legal firearm owners in TX,AZ, and NM just can't find them.


2) The 'reporters', assuming they actually go to the shows to 'investigate', see dummy grenades, Prop RPG-7's w/ inert rockets, and semi-auto AK-47's and are unable/unwilling to tell the difference. The heavy weapons the Drug Cartels are actually using are coming from the corrupt Mexican military and Drug Cartels south of their border.

Which seems the more likely answer?

Getting the Word Out

Our very own author of Armed and Safe is now the columnist for the St. Louis Examiner Gun Rights.

Congrats buddy.

OK. This is Seven.

By the latest count.

Passaic, NJ Mayor Samuel Rivera
Frank Melton, of Jackson MS
Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick
Birmingham, Al Mayor Larry Langford
Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon
Jeremiah Healey of Jersey City

Are joined in their fine club of indicted and/or convicted MAIG mayors by Racine, WI Mayor Gary Becker.

I'm going to have to start another category if this (hopefully) keeps up.

UMPC: The Next Generation ?

The UMPC patches have been so popular that two additional orders have been necessary to keep up w/ the demand.

That being said, some expansion is in the works. I'm looking at UMPC Lapel Pins and variations on the UMPC patch. Pricing would be around $3.50 - $4.50 ea. for the pins.

Patches are most likely going to take an infantry model with wording to be determined. The quill and Propaganda Corps would be removed w/ the traditional crossed infantry muskets added behind the Gadsen. A graphic for this is in works.

UPDATE: Latest prototype patch here

So basically I'm asking the community to tell me what they'ld be interested in. Would you like UMPC Lapel Pins? What kind of wording would you like on the new patch? Two polls are being added to the side for your input. If you can't or are unwilling to leave a comment, feel free to contact me at

EU with a Clue

The current president of the EU stated:

"The conflict has been going on for 60 years and I don't have any illusions, I don't think we are going to see a resolution tomorrow. Above all we need to try to reduce the violence and obtain a ceasefire," Mirek Topolanek told the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

"But at this point I am fairly sceptical that we will achieve it very soon."

Seems the Czech Republic can actually elect politicians that don't have their heads permanently inserted into their rectums.

Who knew?

Philadelphia is now in New Jersey?

Bryan Miller convinced a bunch of religious leaders to ignore his regular violations of the 9th Comandment in order to try and follow the Brady Bunch's failed measure at enlisting church figures to push gun control.

Beyond the usual anti-gun nonsense, here's the part I find entertaining. Bryan Miller has castigated me on his blog and deleted comments for referring to activities in Pennsylvania. His quote:
I am the ED of Ceasefire NJ, as in New Jersey.
So Philly must have been moved by an earthquake or some sort of divine intervention then if Bryan is active in PA politics.

Or else he's just full of crap.

The Grass is Always Greener..

"Maximum" Mike Sullivan has resigned as director of the JBTOTA* aka BATFE.

Now what are we going to get as his replacement?

*Jack-Booted Thugs Of The Apocalypse.


First day of classes. Wore my NRA jacket and Arcola Guns and Ammo hat.

Three people started conversations with me about various gun related issues.

It works.

Illinois Sportsmen

I'ld like to welcome the McHenry County Sportsmen's Assoc. to my list of Gun Sites. McHenry County was the first of the 'Collar Counties' to pass the Pro 2A Resolution last April due in no small part to the advocacy of these individuals.

They contacted me wanting to buy a whole mess of UMPC patches that they plan to give away to members who are active in writing to their congresscritters, letters to the editor, etc. I was happily able to oblige them.

Keep up the good work guys.


After a quick Spring, the fruits shriveled on the vine.

Durbin, the senior senator from Illinois, talked to Burris to congratulate him, he told FOX News. Reid was to do so later in the day, according to Reid spokesman Jim Manley.

"I congratulated him and he was stunned," Durbin said.

What a Para Cheaters

The Ten Bloggers who rigged the voting to get themselves into the "Weekend At Blackwater" Contest now are being exposed nationally for their fraud.

Even though I had more integrity than to pad the numbers to allow me to go, thanks to Sebastian, Bitter, Todd Jarrett, Para-USA, Blackwater, and DownRange TV for all the hard work in this.
