Links and snark

Quit blaming the hoodie. 1 adult, three kids killed. Three others injured in Baltimore. It's a good thing they have strong gun laws.

More gun control fail. Phuket even. Man shot in head, may have been suicide, police not believing it. I wonder where the gun came from.

Gun control fail, again. This time it's the NFA. the law sez you have to pay a tax to make these, apparently criminals don't follow the law. Who wudda thunk it?

New Haven teens getting in on the DIY action. No dogs were injured in the making of this news story.

Le Roy, NY has some strong gun laws. Apparently, though, you can make your own grenades, but it's still against the law. But wait, there's more "A long gun, also believed to be handmade or at least altered, was removed from the car about 8:45 a.m." I wonder how that one gets listed in the FBI UCR.

House invaded in the Gumlog section of Stephens County. from the report "...four subjects armed with handguns and long guns forced their way into a residence,"...and what did the homeowner do? "...During the incident, one of the occupants of the home was able to retrieve an assault rifle that he kept at the residence and subsequently shot one of the intruders." Whew, I'm glad there's a happy ending.

That's all, carry on.


  1. Bill- It's good to see you back fighting the good fight.
    Toni Preckwinkle proposes a violence Tax in Cook County.

    Unfortunately, the majority of criminals in Cook County who are responsible for gun related violence and crime will not be paying this tax. I'm just curious what my new tax burden will be for helping with medical care, for gang banger kids who shoot at each other. Good times.

    BTW- Still can't carry a gun in this state. Again, it's good to see you back.

    1. I've always been here, just not writing. Got injured a few weeks ago and was supposed to be on desk duty. I was confined to bed or chair and couldn't do either for more than 10 minutes so desk duty turned into home confinement. I'm nearly recovered now and figured I'd take the opportunity slap the antis around with the truth while I can. Next week I'll be back to work so blogging will be light, I'm sure.

      RE: violence tax. That's about the dumbest idea I've ever heard. Chicago already has a big problem with gangs buying cheaper cigs in Indiana and selling on the black market.

      Stupid politicians don't realize when you try to prohibit something, either by high taxes or out right prohibition, it only opens up job opportunities for criminals, and not in the tax paying job fields.

      Illinois should legalize recreational pot, I bet that would dampen some of the gang violence.

  2. Oh yes!! This was the thing I was searching for, pretty great…. airsoft guns
