Reising Gun

21 June 21   “Cucumbers get more ‘pickled’ than brine gets ‘cucumbered’”   Design Engineer’s Proverb   The Reising Gun:   USMC had a paratroop unit during WWII, but it never jumped anywhere!   However, it was that unit that demanded an SMG (submachine gun) as well as the Johnson Rifle, as the Johnson’s barrel […]

Chaos!

17 June 21   “‘Anarcho-tyranny’ is a concept, where the state is more interested in controlling citizens, so that citizens do not oppose the overbearing political class (tyranny), rather than controlling real criminals (which might bring about peace and prosperity, and worst of all, dignity).   ‘Laws’ are therefore enforced only selectively, depending on what […]

Skewed view of “Freedom”

15 June 21   Perspective, from a friend in CA:   “The irony is represented by California’s pro-criminal Democrats’ skewed view of ‘freedom:’   1. Petty theft is now de-facto ‘legal’ in CA. Shop-lifters are never arrested, nor charged. Steal whatever you want. It’s ‘legal!’   2. Defecating and urinating in public is also de-facto […]

“Malicious Accuracy”

Things are looking up!

8 June 21   “You probably have some habit or practice that I would find disgusting. When your actions do not affect me, I will leave you in peace, especially when I know as little about the subject as you obviously do about firearms.   I ask of you the same courtesy.   I have […]

“Non-Violent” 911 Calls?

4 June 21   “Non-Violent” 911 calls?   Pro-criminal Democrats are now introducing (federal level) legislation to “incentivize” local communities to dispatch anyone, except police, to frantic 911 calls. Democrats are doing everything possible to keep their precious violent criminals from getting hurt!   Simultaneously, these neo-Marxists couldn’t care less about good and decent citizens, […]

“Disproportional?”

1 June 21   The UN “Human Rights Committee” has decided to establish a permanent commission devoted to studying and criticizing Israel’s “Crimes Against Humanity.” For starters, they’ve declared Israel’s military response to Hamas’ recent precipitous rocket attack as “disproportional.”   Curiously, they never get around to describing exactly what a “proportional response” might look […]

Spiritual Suicide!

28 May 21   When the “mainstream media” refer to “mass shootings,” we never get to know what kind of gun(s) was used. They know, but they won’t tell us, unless of course it’s an M4, Kalashnikov, et al, one of the ones they want confined to their political bedfellows, but banned from ownership by […]

Live From The Field

23 May 21   “There will have to be bloodshed; we will not dodge; there will have to be murder; we will kill, because it is necessary; there will have to be destruction; we will destroy to rid the world of your tyrannical institutions”   From “Plain Words,” published by Luigi Galleani, an American Communist/leftist/anarchist […]

Stationary Momentum!

20 May 21   “First, they’ll tell you that it will never work, and they can prove it.   Then, they’ll admit it does work, but they’ll argue that it is not important.   Finally, they concede that it is important, but then insist that they’ve know about it for years!”   Kettering   In […]

Do you remember what it’s like to be powerless?

18 May 21   This update, from a friend in Israel:   (1) “Yesterday, the general-in-charge of our ‘Central Command’ (includes the West Bank) issued a call for all firearms-possessors to be ready to defend against armed assaults, should Hamas convince Fatah Tanzeem to join the conflict.   There are arms that were given to […]

20th Century!

Us and Them!

15 May 21   “Money has no ‘homeland,’ and who are involved with finances, no ‘patriotism.’   Napoleon   From our southern border, and from Western Europe:   This from a friend and student in Europe:   “Our ammunition famine over here is much worse than yours!   Nearly all of S&B’s 9mm production is […]

Asleep at the Switch!

14 May 21   JRB represents a far-left (Marxist) political agenda that embraces mediocrity, in the name of “equality.” I can’t imagine why anyone is surprised!   In addition, he personally is far removed from being “in his prime.” He is weak and overwhelmed, mentally as well as physically, as both we, and our enemies, […]

Atlas is dying!

12 May 21   American writer and philosopher, Ayn Rand, was born in Russia in the first decade of the Twentieth Century.   She fled Leninist/Stalinist Russia in 1926, at the age of twenty-one, and came to America.   Here, she opposed the Democrat “nanny-state” from the beginning, and for good reason!   Naturally, she […]

“Badges” are coming back!

3 May 21   Western European update, from a friend there:   “Two months ago, the EU announced that they’re going to implement a ‘vaccine passport,’ that will be mandatory for travel across Europe.   The proposal has been accepted by EU’s Parliament, but with a ‘sunset provision’ that it go away after twelve months.
