One of the things you get told all the time by anti-rights bigots is that regular people have no need for guns because the cops can protect them. Who’ll protect you from the cops then?

TMI
Had an invite to go play in an F35 Cockpit Demonstrator at Lockheed. Sadly, as a contractor, every day I take off can put a hurting in my paycheck since I’m now hourly. 6 months as a contractor then I roll full-time. Hopefully all the cool things I’m missing right now will pop up again ‘round that time.

I don’t know how much credit to give to this concept that Obama is really planning on implementing gun control “under the radar”. Really. How do you think you can push something secretly by telling people you’re going to push something secretly? In my opinion, the gun control forces are dumber than a box of thumbtacks and the Obama administration is just playing them for the suckers they are. Nothing like telling a group “Oh, I have your interests at heart and I’m going to do something sneaky...

Congratulations to the winners of the Lucky Gunner “Bestest Gunnie Bloggers” contest. I’m jealous that I wasn’t able to attend the shindig this weekend. Technically I could have gone, the new job is working out well and while I’m a contractor and taking a day off puts a huge dent in my paycheck, we’re financially stable enough to absorb it. However, at the time, it just made more sense to forgo the trip and hope for another shot some other time. Because I wasn’t going, I didn’t push my own...

I served for 8 years in the United States Marine Corps, in both active and reserve duty. I joined during the tail end of the first Gulf War and while there were several skirmishes around the globe during my time, I never saw combat, mostly due to the units I happened to be attached to were just coming back. So to my brethren who drew the short straws and helped protect this great country of ours with their lives, I salute you. Happy Memorial Day folks.

Joe Huffman’s Quote of the Day from 1995 The bottom line is that Florida's concealed-carry law puts guns into the hands of criminals. It is ironic that the gun lobby's 'model' concealed carry law is designed to actually reward criminals who plea bargain, a practice that the gun lobby's rhetoric routinely and vehemently condemns. Under the Florida law, Patrick Purdy, perpetrator of the 1989 Stockton, California schoolyard massacre, and the gun lobby's poster-boy for the evils of plea...

Glue Gun Used in Workplace Assault Police in St. John's expect to lay charges in a workplace confrontation that involved an unusual weapon: a glue gun. Notice what they got right here – the glue gun was a weapon. Not because of its design, but its use. Even though the designers of the glue gun intended their product to heat up glue and deliver it via a gentle squeeze of the trigger, intent is non-transferrable and thus someone with ill intent could use it in a nefarious way.

But tomorrow will be my last day of the ‘unexpected, unpaid vacation’. I start on Tuesday working with some of the brightest minds in the area which will be a challenge in and of itself. I’ll have to get the hang of posting at night with the timestamps for the next day so that there’s stuff for you peoples to read. Thanks for hanging out with me during my downtime.
