Election

The mid-term election is TUESDAY, NOV. 6.  Mississippi has both US senate positions on the ballot. Please vote your freedom.

A nonpartisan “jungle primary” for the seat currently held by Cindy Hyde-Smith (R) will take place on the same day as the regularly scheduled election for the seat currently held by Roger Wicker (R).  PARTY AFFILIATIONS ARE NOT INDICATED ON THE JUNGLE PRIMARY BALLOT.

Regarding the jungle primary special election:

  • This just in from Mike Espy (D): “When we win this thing on Nov. 6, @BennieGThompson will finally have some help in Washington. #EspyForSenate #MSsen”
  • Bennie Thompson (D) is the worst gun grabber we have in Mississippi, and we certainly don’t want to help him.

Meanwhile, Chris McDaniel (R) tweeted: “As part of a McDaniel Red Wave Rally in DeSoto County, the event organizers are giving away an AR-15 firearm. Liberal snowflakes in Memphis are now melting with anger. Too bad! I own an AR-15, and I’m never giving it up.” @senatormcdaniel. McDaniel (R) is endorsed by Gun Owners of America.

Hyde-Smith (R) is endorsed by the NRA.

The Mississippi Republican Party has endorsed Judge Jeff Weill for Mississippi Court of Appeals.

Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D), who is endorsed by some gun ban groups, lied and said this week, “I’m not anti gun. My great-grandmother taught me how to shoot when I was growing up in Mississippi. … I don’t hunt because I mostly eat chicken and that seems mean.” (I don’t know what she means by that statement.) Abrams went on to say “I believe in a background check. I believe in a three day waiting period. I believe that those who commit domestic violence and stalking should not have access to weapons. I do not believe that weapons of mass destruction (sic) like the AR-15 belong in civilian hands.” Well pick one: either you’re anti gun or you DON’T want to ban guns and enact gun control for the law-abiding.

Litigation

NSSF is coordinating a class action lawsuit against Google in San Jose, CA, on behalf of persons or companies that “had its AdWords/AdSense account suspended or terminated by Google LLC between March 2014 and September 2017 based on the fact their websites advertised ‘any products that (i) were designed to injure an opponent in sport, self-defense or combat such as knives, crossbows and guns or (ii) which comprised any part or component necessary to the function of a gun or (iii) were intended for attachment to a gun’ in violation of Google’s dangerous products or services policy.” Our report states that you don’t have to be an FFL or live in the state of California to become a plaintiff.

In related news, GunBroker.com, com.gunbroker.android has been suspended and removed from Google Play due to a policy violation.

When prosecuting a man with Braced-AR-Pistol for having an unregistered SBR, ATF asked the judge to ignore its own findings. U.S. v. Wright, 3:18-CR-162.

Some young adults have filed a lawsuit challenging the federal law which bars FFL handgun sales to adults aged 18-20.

Liars

We note that the police radio traffic during the Pittsburg synagogue massacre last week included an officer’s report that the attacker was using “automatic weapons.” Lamestream media reported an “assault rifle.” Neither was true. The rifle in question turned out to be your everyday Colt AR-15 SP1, and he had some typical Glock pistols.

We also have an unconfirmed report that the Pittsburgh synagogue is a “gun free” zone. Probly shoulda told the killer that. Or maybe he knew.

A new study, “Emergency Department Visits for Pediatric Firearm-Related Injury: By Intent of Injury,” to be presented by author Shilpa Patel today at the 2018 American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference & Exhibition in support of its gun control efforts claims to be about pediatric injuries. But the study itself found that “the average age at injury was 18 years old” (The news release also claimed the mean injury age to be 18.), and claimed adolescents up to 21 years old. But medical convention names pediatrics as the study of CHILDHOOD diseases, and adolescents as ages 13 to 19. We also note that folks ages 18 and up can legally buy long guns from FFLs and handguns from other individuals under federal law. So the study is a lie. They do that intentionally so that the 18-21 year old adults’ data, which has a MUCH higher rate of gun injuries, skews the children’s data, in order to report a higher overall rate and prey on your sympathies. But we already knew that about the Academy. I also found it laughable that someone who doesn’t discriminate between “average” and “mean” purports to report data from a “statistical” study.

Another likely bogus study by Jill Greenlee, associate professor of politics and women’s, gender and sexuality studies (go figure), and several colleagues at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, found that fathers with first-born daughters are more likely to support gun control. My oldest is a daughter. She’s also a gun nut, as am I. But I wasn’t in their “study.” Or maybe I was, because I made sure that my daughter could control her guns.

Enemies

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto (D), one of Bloomberg’s illegal mayors against guns, reacted to the synagogue attack by stressing his erroneous belief that armed security is the wrong answer to attacks on vulnerable places of worship and stressed his stance against having good guys with guns in schools to protect teachers and students. But he kept his own armed police security detail. Peduto reportedly actually said, “I think we’re dealing with an irrational person who acted irrationally. And trying to create laws around that is not the way that we should govern,” but he then said gun control laws should be toughened. Because apparently he thinks irrational people who commit mass murder will become rational and obey gun laws. Or just take a look at what actually did stop the attack, and most every massacre, and do that, quicker.

Rutgers university praised Parkland students for pushing gun control, openly called for gun control, background checks, and bans, and openly vilified the NRA and encouraged votes for Democrats, while inviting Gabby Giffords to headline the opening of its Gun Violence (sic) Research Center.

Although I have no problem with allowing noncriminal, non-infectious foreigners to legally immigrate to the USA, I believe invasions should properly be repelled. A headline about the migrant caravan coming up Central America this week reads “Authorities say migrants carrying ‘guns and firebombs.'” Well so are we.

Another story reports that this week the US Border Patrol told Texas landowners along the US-Mexico border to prepare for a possible influx of “armed civilians” on their property as the migrant caravan moves closer to the US. But being that it’s Texas, USA, I’d assume all civilians are armed.

The ONLY reason this migration, and immigration generally, are controversial, is that 70-90 percent of them will vote Democrat. If their voting reflected the same split as we already vote, we would be having a whole different immigration conversation.

How the lamestream media manipulates you.

The American College of Physicians “favors enactment of legislation to ban the manufacture, sale, transfer, and subsequent ownership for civilian use of semiautomatic firearms…”

Nutball Hinds County, MS, prosecutor Adofo Minka (I’m not making this up) tells minorities not to vote, and agrees that “there are no good cops… all cops are bad precisely because of their choice to be cops.”

Meanwhile, the North Dakota arm of the Democratic Party is running ads on Fakebook (which is complicit) discouraging hunters from turning out to vote in Tuesday’s midterm elections. But what about all those Democrat gun banners who say “but I’m a hunter?”

Below is the gist of my letter dumping Bank of America as my credit card provider. Feel free to use it.

Bank of America
PO Box 2493
Norfolk, VA 23501-2493
Attn: Mr. Brian Moynihan

Re: Bank of America (BOA) Mastercard #

Dear Mr. Moynihan:

Enclosed herewith is the referenced card, unsigned, unaccepted, and unused. When BOA and Bass Pro Shops (BPS), who partnered for my previous card, parted ways, I got a new BPS-branded card at my request. I did not request this BOA card.

Since learning of BOA’s bigoted and likely illegal discriminatory practices concerning types of businesses and individuals with whom it does and doesn’t do business, and its push to circumvent the U.S. Constitution and federal laws in pursuit of those bigoted practices, I no longer do any business with BOA.

Sincerely,

Friends

Brownells is challenging its customers and supporters to collectively donate $100,000 during the month of November to equally support three non-profit veteran charities. Brownells will match that donation up to $100,000 as a part of its #Operation100k event.

The charities are:

  1. Special Operations Wounded Warriors, which provides outdoor experiences, retreats and assistance with therapies for Purple Heart recipients of the United States Special Operations Forces.
  2. Folds of Honor, which provides scholarships and educational assistance to the families of veterans killed or disabled in action.
  3. Mission 22, which is dedicated to raising awareness and enlisting support to eliminate veteran suicides.

Crooks

We have a report that travelers have been targeted by Philippine airport security staff who allegedly plant live ammunition in luggage in order to extort money.


When you don’t know the whole story


Massacre averted?

You may have heard about the attempted robbery and shooting thwarted by an armed customer at a Birmingham area McDonald’s restaurant. Some are calling it a mass shooting attempt. But our sources indicate that the restaurant was closing for the night and the defending customer was being let out of the locked restaurant when the event occurred, so probably the restaurant was nearly empty and probably there was no big crowd in jeopardy.

Army guns

US Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said of the proposed 6.8mm replacement weapon “It will fire at speeds that far exceed the velocity of bullets today, and it will penetrate any existing or known … body armor that’s out there.”

Well, if it’s the 6.8 SPC, nope.
