Shoo….

stupidity

Mark Zuckerberg has decided to speak up against President Trump.

 

He’s the president.  Get over it.

Yes, we should keep our doors open to “your tired, your poor, your huddled masses – yearning to breathe free.”  But get a grip.

Lest we forget, we are a sovereign nation.   Popular media and society at large, they forget.

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

And The DemocRAT’s continue… .

10.pngAnother push, to now ban all center fire ammo?

My dad, just a few years ago, started hunting with a crossbow.  Maybe he was prescient.

Seriously though, we are being governed by those that don’t have a clue.  Absurd.  Off their rockers.

Dems March Forward re M855 Ban… .

So, here they go, steadily legislating that which they do not understand. 10.png

“Any 5.56 round” is “a challenge for officer safety,” he said. Jones asked lawmakers to help in a review of a 1986 bill written to protect police from so-called “cop killer” rounds that largely exempted rifle ammo like the 5.56 because it has been used by target shooters, not criminals.

New worries.  Oh Boy.

Preaching to the choir of course, as none of them read this site certainly – but a ban on M855/5.56, becomes precedent to ban any center-fire carteridge.  Bet on it.  Bet the farm on it.  That is what is going to come if they rule-make in this fashion.

So, what to do.  Well, I donno.  You can comment – see other links for that and certainly do.  You can write your representatives – but with rare exception, they do little.  Both options, in this fight, are what must be done nonetheless.  But what else.  Again, I don’t know.

I do know doing something is better than doing nothing.  That, is why I say if you have any accessibility to your local political fixtures, senators, representatives, commissioners, mayors, and on and on:  start a discussion.  They are interested.  They will listen to you.  Well, at least here in the panhandle of Florida.

Engage with your representatives.

It’s Not Over.

10.pngNot by any measure.  The ATF basically said, “…hey, no mind, just forget about it.”  Only to yes, bring it up later, when politically convenient.

This is, by the way, a common maneuver, that, in law.  The period to comment expires later this month, and if you have not got yours in yet, consider doing so – for what that’s worth.  So, be vocal.  Post and write.  Comment.  Contact your representatives.  If you’re lucky, like I am, they are conservative and have some guts.

On the Futility of Micro-stamping.

jp-MICROSTAMP-1-articleLarge
Image, stolen from: Cheryl Senter for The New York Times

Mike McDaniel, at Stately McDaniel Manor, makes excellent arguments against micro-stamping – relevant as that case is being fought in California now:

So California has implemented a mandate requiring technology that either doesn’t exist or isn’t effective.  Progressives often legislate based on the way they think things ought to be rather than what they are, and this time, courts may have little choice but to strike down what is clearly nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt at an outright ban on an entire class of clearly constitutionally protected handguns.  

We can only hope.  Because this law, signed by then Governor Schwarzenegger in 2007, is not about crime-fighting.

Now, where did I put my file….
