I’ve been writing for The Zelman Partisans, and editing the weekly newsletter, for almost two and a half years. It involves reading a lot of news, commentary, and… BS. Every freaking day. A lot of the same BS. Every freaking day. The same lies, the same false claims; over and over and over and… Yeah. … Continue reading Taking their word for it
Suddenly, I’m not sure. Woodburn penned a column “explaining” his bump-fire stock ban bill, which was riddled with enough errors to prompt me to write to him. It was the usual tripe you see from the gun people controlling victim disarmers: bump-fire stocks turn rifles into automatic weapons, Mandalaly Bay the deadliest shooting in history, … Continue reading NH State Sen. Jeff Woodburn: Idiot, or pro-RKBA Mole?
Redacted warrants and affidavits for the Mandalay Bay shooting have been published. Sadly, the data dump is only from local Vegas LE. It does not include federal investigation information. That’s important because federal agents would be investigating violations of federal law like the reported fully-automatic weapon(s) that fell out of the official narrative once victim-disarming … Continue reading Vegas Warrants: More questions than answers
Now where did I see this predicted? Hawaii: More Anti-Gun Bills Introduced As previously reported last week, Senate Bill 2046 was introduced, aimed at criminalizing certain firearm parts, accessories and modifications. The trend continued this week as more anti-gun legislation was filed prior to the close of the bill introduction deadline. Please contact committee members … Continue reading NRA Hypocrisy Warning
Yes, it matters for RKBA. The LVMPD’s Preliminary Investigative Report (PDF) on the Mandalay Bay mass shooting has been released. If they expected this to silence doubters of the ever changing narrative, they screwed up. Do read it; it’s 81 pages, but that includes photographs and victim lists. I noticed little things. Early leaks said … Continue reading Mandalay Bay Preliminary Investigative Report
A comment was left on the post Commenting Now Open: Application of the Definition of Machinegun to “Bump Fire” Stocks and Other Similar Devices. Carl… do you actually think any rational explanation of anything will influence the bureaucrats? Do you think that any of them CARE in the least? If they were the least influenced … Continue reading Do they care?
As mentioned last week, the ATF has proposed a rule which would render bump-fire stocks, and trigger assist devices, “machineguns.” The Zelman Partisans opposed this when legislation was introduced to do the same thing, and we opposed doing it via bureaucratic fiat. Comments are now being accepted on “Application of the Definition of Machinegun to … Continue reading Commenting Now Open: Application of the Definition of Machinegun to “Bump Fire” Stocks and Other Similar Devices.
The Mandalay Bay shooting has left more questions unanswered than answered. And yes, it matters. It matter because numerous — and gross — violations of Constitutionally “protected” rights are being proposed to “fix” the problems that let that happen. 1. “‘Silencers’ must not be deregulated; they must be banned because what if the Mandalay Bay … Continue reading Vegas Questions; and why they matter
Once again, I indulged in my hobby of confronting less than accurate media reports. This one turned out considerably better than some, and Ed Palm deserves some kudos. I think I taught him something, but he set me straight on something, too. The ingratitude of the NRA Along the same lines, I’m sure it’s fun … Continue reading Teach something, learn something
While the current news cycle churns out reports about multiple bills to ban bump-fire stocks and other accessories, or to ban nearly all semiautomatic rifles, let us cast our minds back to the ancient — in lamestream media time — history to the event that prompted this round of Second Amendment infringements. Mandalay Bay Resort … Continue reading Ancient Mysteries
