Saturday steaming bowl of Skeet

Old Trooper sent this photo from a link at Weekly Standard which says that the White House released this photo this morning. Is it just me, or is that a LOT of smoke coming out of the muzzle? And I’ve never seen a barrel ported that far back, or in that direction and the smoke coming out of the port doesn’t seem to correspond to the smoke coming out of the muzzle. He seems to be shooting a little low for a target that should be in the air, like a bird, not on the ground like Punxsutawney Phil.

DC: In DC anti-gunners appear immune to gun laws

It is becoming increasingly clear that anti-gun advocates, media personalities, and politicians are completely immune to the laws they insist the rest of must abide by, at least in the District of Columbia.

While average citizens and veterans who have served our nation with distinction see their lives ruined, prosecutors repeatedly turn a blind eye when the person breaking the law is espousing an anti-gun agenda.

It all started with David Gregory. Despite being warned by the Capitol Police that he could not possess a normal-capacity magazine inside the District of Columbia, he did so anyway.

OOOOH!


Submitter's comment: What did he do -- put smoke pellets from his Lionel train set down the barrel? There's obviously no recoil happening. It sure looks like a posed photo, or Photoshop.
And I don't think Vladimir Putin has anything to worry about in the heroic portrait competition.
 

PA: Gun flap cancels 'Pennsylvania Crossfire' taping

Could this be the end of "Pennsylvania Crossfire"?
The long-running current events show, which airs on RCN, Service Electric and Blue Ridge cable stations, may have taped its last episode because of a dispute over guns.
According to show producer John Brinson, a camera operator complained when guest Manny Kapelsohn, an Upper Macungie Township attorney and firearms instructor, brought two pistols and a semiautomatic rifle to the RCN studio in Bath on Thursday.
The guns were meant to illustrate a discussion of gun rights in the wake of the school massacre in Newtown, Conn., and the Obama administration's proposals to ban certain types of rifles, armor-piercing bullets and high-capacity magazines.

A former Navy Seal who went on to write a bestselling book chronicling his life as the US's most prolific marksman has been shot dead at a gun range in Texas.
Police said Sunday that the body of Chris Kyle was found by officers responding to an incident at the Rough Creek Lodge in Glen Rose the previous evening. Chad Littlefield, a 35-year-old friend of the war veteran and author, was also killed at the scene.
In a statement, Sergeant Lonny Haschel said Eddie Ray Routh, 25, of Lancaster, had been charged with two counts of murder in relation to the double shooting. The alleged gunman was found at his home just hours after the shooting, having earlier fled the gun range in a pick-up truck, it is claimed.

The author and former Navy SEAL who was one of two men slain at a Texas gun range was the defendant in a defamation lawsuit by former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura.
Ventura sued "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle in federal court in Minnesota over a portion of the book that claims Kyle decked Ventura in a 2006 bar fight over unpatriotic remarks he claimed Ventura made. Ventura, who's also an ex-SEAL, says the punch never happened.
Kyle's Minneapolis attorney, John Borger, says he's "shocked and terribly saddened" by Kyle's death. But he tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press ( http://bit.ly/VxpqAw) it's "way too early" to determine how it will affect the lawsuit.

Kyle was sued by former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura over a portion of the book that claims Kyle punched Ventura in a 2006 bar fight over unpatriotic remarks he claimed Ventura made. Ventura says the punch never happened and that the claim by Kyle defamed him.

MD: Why the AR-15 is most-wanted gun in America
Submitted by: D. Smith

The phone rings again at Pasadena Pawn and Gun, and a familiar question comes down the line: “Got any ARs?”

The answer is no. Pasadena Pawn and Gun, a gun retailer and pawnshop 15 miles south of Baltimore, is pretty much sold out of America’s most wanted gun, the AR15-style semiautomatic rifle. Since the massacre in Newtown, CT., in December, the AR-15, the military-style weapon that the police say was used in the shootings, has been selling fast here and across the nation.

Before Newtown, the rifles sold for about $1,100, on average. Now some retailers charge twice that. At Pasadena Pawn, on the wall behind glass counters of handguns, are three dozen or so AR-15-style rifles. Dangling from nearly every one is a tag that says “Sold.”

A 25-year-old Iraq war veteran charged with murdering former Navy SEAL and "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle and his friend turned a gun onto the pair while they were at a Texas shooting range, authorities said Sunday.
Eddie Ray Routh of Lancaster was arraigned early Sunday in the deaths of Kyle, 38, and Chad Littlefield, 35, at a shooting range at Rough Creek Lodge, about 50 miles southwest of Fort Worth. ...
Capt. Jason Upshaw with the Erath County Sheriff's Office said Routh used a semi-automatic handgun, which authorities later found at his home. Upshaw said ballistics tests weren't complete Sunday, but authorities believe it was the gun used in the shootings. Upshaw declined to give any more details about the gun.
 

Universal background checks would strip 18-20 year olds of handgun rights

Lost amidst the clamor for universal back ground checks are a lot of important details. One of those details, besides the issues of who will pay for universal background checks, and how will such checks be precluded from turning into a registration scheme, is the fact that simply making firearm background checks “universal” would have to effect of denying the right of 18-20 year olds to own a handgun, even in their home.

. . .
So how in the heck would the introduction of “universal background checks” strip 18-21 20 year olds of their constitutional right to own a handgun in their home? That’s easy – because believe it or not, the Gun Control Act of 1968 requires 18-20 year olds to buy handguns privately.

. . .

A conservative estimate of the cost of imposing universal background checks onto Americans would thus arguably be somewhere between $489 million and a $1.04 billion. Philip Van Cleave, President of the Virginia Citizens Defense League opposes pushing the federal background check system and its’ costs onto private sellers . . .

Moreover argues Van Cleave,

“universal background checks would not have prevented any of these recent tragedies,” pointing to the mass murders committed by Seung-Hui Cho . . . Anders Behring Breivik . . . Jared Loughner . . . James Holmes . . . and Adam Lanza . . . who all either passed, or could have passed, dealer background checks to buy guns.

Police used a stun gun to arrest a man armed with knives outside Buckingham Palace on Sunday as throngs of tourists gathered to watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony there.
Scotland Yard said the man, thought to be in his 50s, was spotted carrying two knives outside the central gate of the London tourist landmark. He did not threaten other people at the scene, but when challenged by police he acted aggressively.
Officers used the stun gun on him and took him to a London police station, Scotland Yard said. No one was injured.

Submitter's comment: Were either of the knives fully automatic or semiautomatic?

Heading toward a Starbucks on the pricey side of town, Rob Farago is packing. The Glock 30SF lives on his right hip, holstered under his jacket, with 10 rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber. Backup ammo is in another pocket.

Farago didn’t used to be a gun guy. He was a car guy. He had a popular blog called the Truth About Cars. He sold it in 2009 and searched for a new consumer topic, landing on guns.

He’s full of skeet! Gun owners lampooned President Obama as Elmer Fudd yesterday after the White House released a photo — in the middle of a fierce national firearms debate — of the commander-in-chief shooting clay targets at Camp David over the summer. While the president’s shooting skills were being mocked, his own gun-control allies privately fretted that Obama risked being ridiculed as a phony for suddenly trying to portray himself as a friend of sportsmen and hunters. Or, conversely, that he was glorifying the use of guns.

Decorated Iraq war veteran Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL and "American Sniper" author, was shot and killed at Central Texas gun range on Saturday. Here's the legacy he leaves behind:
NAVY RECORD
Kyle enlisted in the Navy in February 1999 and was discharged on November 2009, military records show. During that time, he served four tours in Iraq received 14 different awards and decorations, including two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, and two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals.
"I didn't do it for the money or the awards. I did it because I felt like it was something that needed to be done and it was honorable. I loved the guys," Kyle told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in 2012.

“'They are waiting for the ankle monitors to get in for the release. United States Probation is getting them,' it was explained."

"What this means is, the only reason the father and son have not already been released and must wait until at least Monday to be able to rejoin their family, is because those holding them are unable to comply with the judge’s order, and made no preparations anticipating the likely potential that a prosecution relying on suppression of evidence to win convictions might be overruled."
 

Why is government stockpiling guns, ammo?

Is the U.S. government getting ready for a war we don’t know about?
And, if that’s why Washington is stockpiling massive amounts of ammunition (hollow points, by the way), why is Homeland Security doing the buying instead of the Defense Department?
I have some theories.
Many of you will remember a story I broke a long time ago – about presidential candidate Barack Obama’s little-noticed announcement that, if elected in 2008, he wanted to create a “civilian national security force” as big, as strong and as well-funded as the Defense Department.

NY: Gun law debate heads to Ontario County committee

The ongoing debate on how to prevent gun violence in New York while not infringing on the rights of residents is headed to an Ontario County committee. At its Feb. 5 meeting, the Ontario County Government Operations and Improved Methods Committee will consider a resolution written by Seneca Supervisor John Sheppard that opposes the enactment of the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013 and calls upon the New York State Legislature and Gov. Andrew Cuomo to rescind the legislation. Enacted last month, the law governs ownership of assault-style, semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines and requires background checks for ammunition purchases, among other provisions.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Some people think that the Second Amendment is an outdated relic of an earlier time. Doubtless some also think that constitutional protections of other rights are outdated relics of earlier times. We The People own those rights regardless, unless and until We The People repeal them. For those who believe it to be outdated, the Second Amendment provides a good test of whether their allegiance is really to the Constitution of the United States, or only to their preferences in public policies and audiences. The Constitution is law, not vague aspirations, and we are obligated to protect, defend, and apply it. If the Second Amendment were truly an outdated relic, the Constitution provides a method for repeal. The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser." --9th Circuit Court Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, dissenting opinion in which the court refused to rehear the case while citing deeply flawed anti-Second Amendment nonsense (Nordyke v. King; opinion filed April 5, 2004)
