"How to use your rifle scope as a rangefinder."

"Many American households have a scoped deer rifle in them. Common calibers are .30-06, .308, .270, .243, and a variety of sporterized military surplus rifles from around the world. All of these rifles are capable as being used for 'designated marksman' functions. Let us assume that the excrement has hit the rotary oscillator, and you are now in some sort of leadership role of a rag-tag group of people. You find that you have a few SKS and Kalashnikov variants, an AR-15 or two, and several scoped deer rifles. What to do from here." ...

Truth be told, I grew up in a museum, surrounded by an endless parade of rare and beautiful objects. At first, it was African folk art: dark mysterious pieces that spoke of elemental emotion. Then American antiques: minimalistic masterpieces of unpretentious artistic aspiration. Then American crafts: compelling forms with exquisite colors and textures.

Aside from railing against a state that infringes on Americans’ god-given right to armed self-defense, how about this: if you have a gun you must be ready, willing and able to use it. To do that, you have to master the grieving process . . ." ...

"To many shooters, hitting something from the 1,000 yard line is like putting a man on the moon. It can be done, but it takes a smart person, specialized gear, and a lot of money. Of the two happiest moments of my shooting career, one took place on the 1,000 yard line at USMC Base Quantico with the ArmaLite AR-50 ... And the happiness didn’t come from the fiddy cal, the happiness came from the distance. With .50 BMG being just a bit expensive I decided to set out on a mission to see if $500 would buy enough gun to get rounds the full 1,000 yards and actually hit something at that distance, putting long range joy within reach of the average American shooter." ...

"I should acknowledge that there is a significant alternative to an originalist view of the text, and it is a view that focuses on the text as understood in light of the actual practices of the legal system today. The theory here is that the Constitution derives its force from the continuing consent of the governed, and that if our legal system — crafted as it is by elected officials and those appointed by elected officials — over time accepts some new meaning of a term, then that meaning becomes part of the constitutional framework." ...

Last Thursday, we looked at what is emerging as apparently the 'best' excuse the 'gun control' lobby can conjure up in order to absolve the BATFE of guilt for this murderous monstrosity: that because the Senate has refused to confirm a permanent BATFE director, the agency is 'leaderless,' and thus cannot help lurching from one folly to the next." ...

That the '70%' figure refers not to the total number of seized guns, but to the percentage of those submitted to, and successfully traced by, the [ATF], is generally ignored. The fact that according to the Mexican newspaper El Universal, fewer than a quarter of the recovered firearms were traced, meaning that fewer than 16% of the total number of recovered firearms can be traced to the U.S., is definitely ignored." ...

Submitter's note: Any license for a protected RIGHT (thus turning it into a privilege) is an insult to that right and is grossly illegal. Charging a fee for said illegal license is robbery and an insult added to the felony theft of rights. That being said, the current illegal ban on concealed carry in WI is far worse. This bill is an improvement in many ways. Never give up on constitutional carry (now a reality in 4 1/2 states - VT, AK, AZ, WY, and rural MT).
