RIFLEMAN'S JOURNAL - MAY 2019
The World Sucks
Encore l'Project Gunwalker?
Back here I hypothetically asked, "Mr. President, Bryce Williams was an active supporter of yours. Do you feel any responsibility for these murders, given your racially-divisive policies and rhetoric?" YEAH, LIKE THIS. IT'S NOT REPUBLICAN NRA MEMBERS WITH MAGA HATS SHOOTING UP SYNAGOGUES AND NOBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT THAT.
And like this also. Remember just a few days ago when I asked whose fault it would be if that drunk-driving illegal immigrant whom a judge and officer of the court helped to escape had gone on to run over a toddler.
A disarmed and defenseless population is a prerequisite for real socialism.
Because they really do hate us so much they want murderers and terrorists to vote for them instead.
And that's not hyperbole.
To which dot Michael G. connects, "Dehumanizing those they oppose: An environmental group at Cal Poly posts a hit list of names and locations."
Among other Nazi-like activities on college campuses.
Truly, Don't Go to College. It's a terrible place.
Immigrants Contributing to Society? Or just another weekend in California?
Well anyway, Immigrants Contributing to Society.
GOVERNMENT "HEALTH" "CARE" WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG
In my fictional future history I postulate the decline and fall of the Catholic Church. Michael now asks, "Is the Pope Catholic? A lot of theologians are seriously wondering."
Said Pope is also kind of committing an act of war against the United States of America.
Michael also sends, "Eric 'Nuke 'Em' Swalwell proves he never read Constitution: Tweets out that the Constitution never used the word 'women', as if he has made a compelling fine, but doesn't know it never used the word 'men' either."
In Lighter News
Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends, Lawsuit against Armslist fails in Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Years ago I wrote "He guided the shuttle to a smooth landing in a grassy clearing easily large enough for a hundred such vehicles. They got out, the houndosaurs frolicking and happily gronking at their feet, their polished scales casting thousands of miniature rainbows in the sun." With, “The cargo sold,” he said, comming the data from his 'puter to Daisuke's. “The whole cargo. I reckon that will cover the port fees.” The wiry nikkei from New Israel, normally the definition of reserved decorum, actually made a little happy-noise when he read his display. Gnoppan raptorhide, sparkling with thousands of reflective scales, was quite the fashion among bootmakers in Texas, New or old...." And, "The Nikar were a reptilian race, the second alien species discovered by Humans, vaguely humanoid in shape and size, with powerful, clawed, three-digit hands, larger and less-prehensile toes, and a long, very-prehensile tail. Prrg had a face like a foreshortened crocodile, yellow slit-pupil eyes under protective ridges, and dark gray scales highlighted with two thin but sparkling red racing stripes from crest to tail-tip; his ethnicity was drab compared to most of his people." I'm feeling better about writing that now.
Michael G. sends, "Be a rooftop Korean: 'Some duties of a citizen should never be outsourced. If you are an able-bodied adult, it’s your duty to know how to stop the bleeding and give CPR until the pros who do it for a living arrive. And it’s your duty (and right) to defend yourself, your family, your community and your Constitution. With guns – effective guns....'" Aaand that's not Lighter News because the mobs really are out to get us and I have no way out of this horrible place. "Ban them? We should insist non-felon adult, able-bodied citizens own them and become proficient with them...." Trying to do my part toward that goal.
Not unrelated, he follows with, "WaPo article says Allies just as bad as Axis in WW2. Because they weren't perfect, according to the author's standards, and all non-perfection is equally bad. And Freedom Toons thought they were making a joke."

Way back here I wrote "Should we rename the nation's capitol? Tear down a few monuments? Give Yorktown back to the British?" And there we are.
Their way does work... for the real goal.
Which is REAL SOCIALISM.
Got yer May Day commemoration right here.
Again and again I tell you to think about the kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself.
A while back I ventured into race relations and now this happens. Not. "Racist". If. It's. True. Which is not unrelated to:
More analysis of the Armslist Wisconsin case. First and Second Amendments.
An important increment in Florida.
In my fictional future history I postulate technology to keep food fresh for a very long time. Working on part of that.
The place where Europe used to be....
Sharyl Attkisson has been described by some on Our Side as the Last Real Journalist.
Because there really is a concerted and deliberate effort
to misinform everyone about everything
and to silence anyone who points that out.
I grew up poor, with parents on food stamps back when they were actual stamps, and I seem to recall this sort of thing being the law at the time but now they can get cash from ATMs and spend it on $600 sneakers in which they can fall asleep in a wheelchair on the sidewalk between this slum and the bus stop from work and I'm not making that up I should have got a crappy cellphone picture gods and demons how I hate this horrible place.
Entertainment rot spreads both ways.
Second Front action in Ohio and as always I demand jail time or a noose for any hypocritical thief-with-a-badge who ever "confiscated" an "illegal" knife, and for any prosecutor-persecutor or unstable-freak-in-black-robes who upheld such bigotry.
In the wake of Fairfax's dirty laundry, some observers have pointed out opportunities for other groups to gain ground. Gun Owners of America appears to be paying attention. Years ago I made a long series of quarterly payments to become a life member of the National Rifle Association. GOA's is the same $500, with comparable payment options. Hmm. And their email alerts are free.
In Norman Borlaug-related news, Michael G. sends, "High yield farming better for the environment than organic farming: 'Agriculture that appears to be more eco-friendly but uses more land may actually have greater environmental costs per unit of food than “high-yield” farming that uses less land, a new study has found.' And how soon are the authors of this study turned into unpersons? Oh, and Roundup isn't a carcinogen."
Speaking of commissars vanishing, Michael follows with, "Reality based scientist takes over AOC climate hearing. Turned out one of her trained seals wasn't a trained seal."
Couple years back I wrote "On the floor nearby he saw the answer, a discarded polymer sabot for a subcaliber, high-velocity penetrator, probably tungsten or the like." That is by no means a new idea.
TrumpKeepsHappening which is good because I came real close to quitting the kennel-of-retarded-dogs today (and I haven't had a car of my own for more than two years fml).
Even more monopolistic censorship is expanding to overt discrimination. How long until the dogs and firehoses?
Which is not unrelated to Michael Z. Williamson's observation of a highly contagious disease.
Immigrants Contributing to Society which segues to
Michael G. sends, "Citizen stops homeless man from setting fires in LA." But that's not Lighter News because "Unless there is a change in the approach to homelessness, Californians better hope that citizens like Richard Lazenby remain in the state. We will need more heroes." While California is going to great lengths to drive every decent, civic-minded person out of the state.
Michael follows with, "Guess who the attacked MAGA hat Asians were? North Korean defectors! I guess that's appropriate, the ones who hate MAGA want to turn America into North Korea." Note also: "Just days before President Trump met with Kim Jong-un in February, North Korea announced that it was facing a food crisis. Daily rations were cut and it was reported that 41 percent of North Koreans were undernourished." And not long ago I wrote "The People's Establishment of Lanos had drawn into itself as well, their economy collapsing, their lights going out, and systematic cannibalism now an evident fact. There were images of the camps and slaughterhouses, and - like the communists of Old Terra - pyramids of skulls."

Second Front action in Texas and as always I demand jail time or a noose for any hypocritical thief-with-a-badge who ever "confiscated" an "illegal" knife, and for any prosecutor-persecutor or unstable-freak-in-black-robes who upheld such bigotry.
In my fictional future history I postulate dueling as a Constitutionally-protected right. I'm far from the first to have that idea.

Immigrants Contributing to Society (with backlash)
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Unintended consequences: Whaddaya know, poorly thought through, knee-jerk environmental regulations probably will make things worse. Whoever could have seen that coming?"
Michael G. observes "There's no CNN bias to fake news: 'CNN covered the January controversy surrounding Nick Sandmann and his fellow Covington Catholic School students 23 times, yet thus far hasn’t covered footage of children at a Philadelphia Islamic center reading poetry about chopping off heads.'"
Followed by, "David Hogg orders everyone to stop using correct legal term."
With, "Code Pink stops pretending they are freedom loving patriots trying to keep USA out of war."
Which segues to "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."
And then I got out of bed and
went back to work.
And then I could not tolerate one more day
of being trapped in a van with morons
who shout in one ear while coughing in the other
and now I'm unemployed again.
I'm good at things I don't like and
I like things I'm not good enough to do for a living.
A couple hours later I got an email
from my only real friend at that place,
commiserating and saying he hates it too.
It helps to know it's not just me.
I'm not wrong. People really are that bad.

Discrimination and lies in Montana of all places.
Michael G. sends "Midwest flood victims thank green justice policies. Now they get to live in the land of submarines."
With, "Ted Bundy exemplifies white privilege. Because he was lionized, says a college professor from the end of the political spectrum that lionizes vile criminals and murderers." They really do hate us for the color of our skin.
They really do hate us
and want us to die.
And to rape our children. Burn the government schools.
None of that is hyperbole.
Their way doesn't work and ours does.
Second Front action in Arizona and as always I demand jail time or a noose for any hypocritical thief-with-a-badge who ever "confiscated" an "illegal" knife pair of sticks connected by rope, and for any prosecutor-persecutor or unstable-freak-in-black-robes who upheld such bigotry.
NFA increments in Arkansas.
FFL reform too, or not.
It's not paranoia if Big Brother really is watching us. Or committing mass fraud against us. Or both.
Nor is it paranoia if they really are treating us like the National Socialists treated the Jews.
Don't go to college. It is a silly place.
Couple years ago I made my first OpEd video and yes, a would-be genocidal dictator wants the nuclear launch codes.
Michael G. sent that and follows with, "Imaginary Air Force officers support gun control. According to PA state legislator Brian Sims, when he isn't attacking pro-life people."
Which flavor of violent psychosis we have seen before.
Michael adds, "Medical kidnapping: More Child Protective Services abuse in America."
Increments in Indiana.
ON THIS DAY
So I've got around to watching The Orville and while its production values are high and it even has its quality moments, there's also a lot of entertainment rot expressed through checking all the social-justice boxes. For example, season 2 episode 12, "Sanctuary", deals with a race of humanoids whose culture has developed around a single, male, gender, and the rarely-hatched females are surgically converted to male in infancy. In this episode, fugitive females develop an interstellar underground railroad to rescue females and colonize a hidden planet, which is then discovered and risks subjugation or destruction by their government. Now, classical liberals and minarchists and republitarians and suchlike would say, "Let them go and leave them the heck alone," but I can't help pondering how the people who write and produce this, the actors who portray it, are the same people who bash Israel and wave banners for "Justice for Palestine" and turn both eyes hypocritically blind to the way Islam treats females, very much including widespread female genital mutilation, while accusing the rest of us of "Islamophobia". To which dot connect, I recently acquired copies of the extended Lord of the Rings trilogy and made the mistake of reading the Wikipedia page for one of the lead actors, in which I learned he supported Bernie Sanders. Like that James Hodgkinson guy who tried to murder a bunch of Republicans. It is no longer possible to separate entertainment from entertainer, or fellow-travelers from each other. I will paint with a broad brush because it is not Republican NRA members with MAGA hats shooting up congressional baseball games, or schools or workplaces or concerts or movie theaters or gay nightclubs. My Side is the one that does not have innocent blood on its collective hands. Which segues to:
In monopolistic censorship news, Michael G. sends, "Tracking violence by the Left violates Twitter's terms of service. 'The left is violent!' 'Pics or it never happened.' 'Okay, here are the pics!'
'Those pics violate our terms of service, so we are erasing them and your account. Now that there are no pics, it never happened.'"
Followed by, "John Lott restates the obvious: That the way to stop church shootings, and other mass shootings, is a populace that bears arms." "We can no longer ignore the fact that these mass public shootings keep on occurring in those small, isolated areas of right-to-carry states where permitted concealed handguns aren’t allowed" and whose fault is that?
IT IS NEVER ONE OF OUR KIND. IT IS ALWAYS THEIRS.
To which dot connect a state representative fomenting and facilitating the exact same kind of hatred and violence.
Which is still not hyperbole.

Lest that be seen as Godwin or hyperbole, Michael G. sends "Paper: Professor Bias May Deflate Conservative College Students' Grades. Shocked face."
Don't go to college where they hate us and want us to die and openly fantasize about exterminating us.
Immigrants Contributing to Society Vibrantly
Blogbrother SMLE Fan points out ever-spreading entertainment rot. -And just last night I finished watching the extended LotR trilogy. I actually did read the books once, decades ago.
Burn the government schools child-molestation factories
Michael also sends, "The school shooters who will be portrayed as the real victims." And used as excuses to violate the rights and steal the property of everyone who isn't shooting up the schools.
All the political violence in this country is from the left, against the right. Including this horrible place.
That's three different images, here is a convenient single file.
Michael G. sends backlash in the schools?
When establishment entertainment rots, we have to make our own. -Which I am also trying to do if-you-find-this-fictional-future-history-entertaining-please-consider-a-charitable-donation-through-the-PayPal-buttons-on-the-top-or-bottom-of-most-pages-on-this-site-thank-you.
Michael G. starts with, "Berkeley student gov. wants non-citizens to vote in elections. The training ground for the population replacement movement." "...[M]any of the same individuals who moaned about foreign interference in our 2016 election are all too happy to extend the franchise to individuals who bear no affiliation to the United States...."
Got yer election meddling right here.
Michael follows with entertainment rot: "Law and Order rewrites reality to make conservatives the bad guys. In other words, it's a day that ends in 'Y'." With anti-Semite sauce. And the low-information voters with a TV remote in one hand and an EBT card in the other swallow it whole, blame the jooooz for whatever went wrong in their life, and shoot up another synagogue, and then the lying anti-Semite establishment media will blame me.
Jews need to defend themselves because nobody else will defend Jews.
And as if on cue the New York Times defends a subliterate misogynistic third-worlder with a badge.
Likewise, Colion Noir nails Joe Biden. Who will still get millions of sheeple to vote for him.
The other day I called the government schools child-molestation factories and this horrible place proves me right, again.
The place where Germany used to be....
"Zuckerberg is literally copying Stalinist Russia." Which segues to:
Campus and Second Front action in Iowa.
Repeating, Prohibition Will Always FAIL and there's always another way.
Badass o' the Day.
None of these mass shootings has been committed by a Republican NRA member with a MAGA hat. Michael G. sends more data on the latest: "The father of one of the alleged STEM School Highlands Ranch shooters in Colorado is a serial felon and illegal immigrant from Mexico."
AND NOBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT THAT.
Democrats are the party of terrorism and genocide. Any Jew who is not armed is a moron. Any Jew who votes Democrat is suicidal.
Ongoing monopolistic censorship
Michael G. sends, "Oberlin trial demonstrates higher education rot. And our self declared elites' drive to tyrannical power over the rest of us. 'What became quite evident on the first day of testimony, however, is that the school seemed to perceive that they ran the town of Oberlin, and that the town was supposed to do what they were told to do.'" Oberlin Police Officer Victor Ortiz: “I didn’t see anyone trying to calm the students down at all” and what exactly are YOU getting paid for?
Followed by, "Johns Hopkins protesters FINALLY arrested. Their months-long sit-in was tolerated but when they chained the doors shut and covered the security cameras it was a step too far." Not Lighter News because "Not sure how much deterrence the arrests will have on future action since they aren't pressing charges against anybody." Yeah what are we paying cops for?
With - remember about a month ago when some TV show I never watch portrayed and advocated open political violence against, mainly, white people. Michael now sends, "Entertainment rot, civility division: CBS show kills off expy of Trump admin official by SWATting him. The SWATters are the group the main character belongs to. Think there's any chance she'll realize 'We're the baddies' and do something about it? Me neither."
It's not paranoia if they really are out to get us.
And, "Human Rights requires the admittance of the children of ISIS. That's the argument being made in EU court." What could possibly go wrong.
As for living in caves, wearing grass skirts, freezing in the dark and dying of the common cold at age forty, Michael sends, "Living on grass: Now the warmists don't want to just roll back the industrial revolution, they want to roll back the neolithic agricultural revolution."
Streisand Effect at the arms shop.
The gun culture is vastly more tolerant and inclusive than so-called "liberals" pretend to be. Adding Armed Equality to my front and links pages.
Michael G. sends, "Norway's Health Minister: Eat whatever you want. 'Norway’s new minister in charge of public health said this week that adults did not need government lectures about what to put in their bodies....' When she was Immigration Minister she said Norway didn't need a bunch of immigrants, especially from repressive uncivilized societies. Signs of sanity returning to Norway?"
I've never served in the military, except for three misguided months thirty-odd years ago in Air Force ROTC learning that the military and I would be better off without each other, but I approve of this. TrumpKeepsHappening?
Speaking of the military, OMG LARRY CORREIA IS WRITING DOCUMENTARIES
Michael G. sends, "U of Minnesota offers illegals, 'dreamers' scholarships." While the rest of us are stuck with soul-crushing debt.
Followed by, "In Britain, no jail time for Islamist who threatened mass murder." While British subjects who complain about it on Twitter are fined and jailed.
With, "A call for Jexit from college: 'American universities are openly breaking their bonds with the Jewish community by embracing active discrimination against Jewish students and rejecting their intellectual, emotional, and moral attachments to the values of equal human dignity, universal rights, critical inquiry, and rational thought.... Paying for teenagers to be subjected to this kind of rejection and abuse is an act of communal self-destructiveness that we would be smart to eschew.' Not just Jews, anyone who upholds the ideals of the Declaration and Constitution."
Brainwashing factories, I have called the government schools, and Michael sends, "Brainwashing children works. I wonder if anyone has written any papers like this about gun control, rather than climate change?"
It's not paranoia. They really are out to get us.
Michael G. sends, "Idaho repeals its state regulatory code. Not on purpose, the legislature was squabbling so much they didn't get around to reauthorizing the regulatory code. Oft evil will evil mar. 'Previously, each rule the governor wanted cut would have had to be justified as a new rulemaking action; now, every regulation that agencies want to keep has to be justified. The burden of proof has switched.'"
Comeback o' the Day.
And then I got out of bed and
looked for another job.
Nobody in this horrible place wants to hire
a 51-year-old white straight male conservative
and I have nowhere else to go
and no way to get there.
I repeat, any Jew who is not armed is a moron and any Jew who votes Democrat is suicidal.

Thoughts on the AR/M16 family evolution, which is still a tangled mystery. Some rather learned discussion in comments. Anyway ponder this during your next build and don't use your rifle as a prybar for poop's sake.
Epic hypocrisy. Accusing others of what they are doing themselves. And Project Gunwalker will echo for years.
The two sides in our cultural divide have fundamentally different views on the existence of natural rights and the role of government. There can be no peace between people who want to be left alone and people who cannot leave others alone.
"No elected Democrat has come out and condemned Sims publicly. Think about that."
Think about this also, as Michael G. sends, "Hepatitis A up 300%. Spread by drug abuse, homelessness, poor sanitation and failure to vaccinate. All things the left favors."
Among other contributions to society.
Michael follows with, "Portland State U president resigns under fire. He spent too much money, other colleges could turn out just as reliably-left-wing drones at lower cost." Oh, and seven months paid vacation, note. Remember that as you struggle with soul-crushing student-loan debt.
Which segues to, "Harvard holds graduation ceremony for students in country illegally. But don't call Harvard a fifth column anti-American enemy institution."

F*** New Zealand again.
I repeat, different cultures are different. Racism is not my fault. It is theirs. I'm not the one who's "racist" if they really are violent criminal thugs incapable of civilized behavior.
More on the upcoming SCOTUS action with national implications.
Michael G. sends, "Push back, or futile posturing against migrants in Austria? It depends on how much teeth it gets in practice. Do those who violate it receive actual punishment, or is it, 'We order you to follow our rules, and if you don't we will order you again.'"
Blood libel and Baghdad Bob-level lies.

Speaking of which, Michael G. sends, "U of Colorado/Colorado Springs settles with conservative group: Christians will not be prevented from requiring their leaders to be Christians. And the university will pay the groups legal fees for fighting for their rights."
With, "SJW shocked that actions have consequences. It would take a heart of stone not to laugh."

Range dayyyy would again have been more fun if my eyes and/or glasses were in better condition. I only took Precious, my first AR build, presently configured thus, with a Holosun red-dot, a Leapers/UTG 3x magnifier with quick-release side-swing mount, and backup flip sights:
A friend took me to a range where I had a chance to sight-in this carbine for the first time in... probably more than two years. Which was good because the sights were way off and something might be actually wrong with them, as evidenced by the rear sight being all the way over, minus a very few clicks:
That was at the end of the session. Before reaching that point I had to dismount the upper, sandbag it, and boresight the old-fashioned way just to get on paper. The result really screws up the co-witness:
But eventually, with the red dot and magnifier, I was in the neighborhood of the center of the target at 100 reportedly 92 yards. I actually did this without my eyeglasses, using cheap uncorrecting safety glasses instead (because wear eye protection when shooting, always), since my aging eyes are getting more farsighted, where they used to be nearsighted, to a point where I could probably drive on public roads without glasses, though I wouldn't like it:
Which is going to have to do for now. Hopefully, if I get income again, and find an optometrist I can a) afford and b) won't call a death-squad-in-government-costume if I start talking about sight radiuseseses, I can stick with single-vision glasses, because bifocals will really screw up iron-sight rifle shooting.
The Holosun HS403GL is a 2MOA red dot which I got on sale a while back for about $120 online. It seems nice. I've read the manual and understand the very minimalist controls. Without eyeglasses and with the magnifier adjusted for focus, it gave a very clear and pleasant red dot at 92 yards, with no fuzz or multiple images. Nothing wrong with that at least and if I needed another it would be high on the list.
Meanwhile, I have my suspicions about the sight problem, and I hope I'm right because if not there's something wrong with the $120 red-dot instead. Years ago I changed the gas block, from the traditional front sight base to a Yankee Hill aftermarket type. Then it turned out the rail on that gas block was not the same height as the upper receiver's rail, so I had to add a Yankee Hill riser block. Now the front sight is the third level of that construction, and something could be misaligned at any of those levels:
And it is not the same set of folding sights I used in my last 3-Gun match - which I think I still have and could just put back on. I suspect and hope this set of sights is off somehow, which would be a much easier fix than something wrong with the dot or the rails. Another possibility is the gas block is still not quite square with the receiver rail, which can also be fixed if necessary - I would remove everything from the rails, leave the riser block in place, loosen the gas block, and place the upper on as flat a surface as I can find in the hovel, jiggling until the gas block and receiver rails seem square, then retighten the gas block. That's more work and a touchy job and I don't want to do it.
Additionally, Precious currently uses the Rise Armament RA140 trigger, which is far better than what usually comes with a lower parts kit, but I don't want to buy from that company anymore because of badgelicking - see yesterday's thoughts about "police week". Now it turns out this individual trigger has a very shallow and somewhat inconsistent second stage, which is not conducive to precision shooting, and while I'm no G. David Tubb, I know I don't suck with a rifle and I like to hit things on purpose so Good Triggers Matter. I have a McCormick trigger group laying around which I may put in its place, though that was meant for another project.
Another thing: the friend had a Ruger American bolt-action rimfire, and it was discovered that the transparent magazine does not fit the synthetic stock, while a conventional older-style 10/22 magazine works perfectly:
The transparent one is evidently enough hundredths of an inch wider to jam in the magazine well, while, as illustrated, the other magazine snaps in and drops out exactly as it should. Both magazines are Ruger manufactured and marked. So if you're having this problem, it's not just you.
Grumpy Cat has passed away. I type this with FluffyTux in my lap.
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "In the 'not clear on the concept' department, model protests sexual objectification of women by posting nude photo of herself." Which is not Lighter because racism and hate.
To which dot connect, CJ Pearson points out genocidal racist hypocrisy.
Which segues to thoughts on abortion, with thoughtful discussion in comments. Which I have also pondered.
Really a lot of hate in the government schools.
Which is not unrelated to, sometimes corporations are evil. Among my lottery fantasies are taking over good companies and relocating them out of hostile states, and buying out bad companies like Converse and Nabisco for the sole purpose of shutting them down, or at least flushing them out.
And Don't Go to College, Chapter MMMMMDCCCXI.
And stay the f*** out of Canada in any case.
F*** New Zealand compare and contrast with news from Israel below.
Living in caves, wearing grass skirts - they really mean it, as Michael G. sends, "CA bureaucrat almost proposed internal combustion ban. It was in the draft of her speech, but she didn't deliver that line."
Yes, Fudd, that means your annual duck hunt too.
RINO backstabbing in Texas-of-all-places and if the Lone Star State ever does regain Constitutional Carry I might f***ing walk there I hate this horrible place so much fml.
Please explain in small words how this makes me "racist". Would you want to live on the other side of a wall from these people?
It is not and will never be Republican NRA members with MAGA hats slaughtering each other in Chicago
Think about the kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself.
Which segues to, still more on the upcoming SCOTUS action.
The Constitution says "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion" and Michael G. sends TrumpKeepsHappening.
You know... Israel has never been a free country either - which I have also pondered - but some people are trying to fix that. Do click through for the video.
Michael G. sends, "And they said we were paranoid. Apparently we weren't paranoid enough: 'After mapping the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa accounts on the social network Twitter, Dr. Eoin Lenihan found that many journalists from major publications such as The Guardian, Vox, and more had a direct working relationship with the Antifa members.'" And Twitter will delete his account in 3, 2, 1....
"...[L]aw-abiding Americans who own guns are not the problem" and nobody wants to talk about that.
Michael G. sends, "In Oregon, when a man is school security. There shouldn't be a school security officer, security should be a distributed responsibility of every adult at the school. That having been said, this shows what happens when the security officer is an actual man and not a time-serving bureaucrat who coincidentally has vestigial testicles." Ah, so that's why Every Siren In Town was screaming past this place yesterday. It happened about a mile from here. '“We all couldn’t process this,” [Senior Alexa Pope, 17] said.' Well whose fault is that, when your brain shuts down and you just sit there staring until the monster kills you. Throw the f***ing chair. And of course, "...[P]olice split students into groups and were checking them individually to ensure they weren’t a threat." Treating victims like criminals. Because that's all they know how to do. With their government monopoly of violence.
Second Front action in Texas. More.
Well, now I remember why I changed the backup flip sights on Precious: the previous set was shaped such that the 3x magnifier could not flip over with enough clearance. Years ago there was a big complicated plan to get a Very Particular Gas Block for this build - which I did eventually but which has gone to another project instead. This product might be an alternative solution - the forward sling mount can be added to Magpul or M-LOK slots, like this. The problem might also be as simple as getting that Yankee Hill block properly squared to the receiver rail - just a degree or two, difficult to see by eye, could make that much difference with the Ridiculously Tall Sights on an AR. At least I have the Holosun, on the actual upper receiver rail, which was a factory build several Black Fridays ago, sighted to minute-of-mob at a "hundred" yards. Not to the standard of accuracy I desire, from five Appleseeds and dozens of CMP matches, but it will have to do.
Now if I only had income. From a job. Which didn't surround me with uncivilized morons.
