Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri is not happy.

Not at all. His comments about Open Carriers have made the rounds down here in Florida and the reactions have been negative.

It is only 2:24 but full of goodness. Trey Gowdy lays it hard and heavy while the dumb DHS idiot does nothing but Barbie smile.

These are some screen captures I did over the week, but they really did not amount too much as to write a full post about them.

I wanted to make a comment on Miguel’s last post but as I thought about it, the subject became more of a post in and of itself.

In an interview, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said “What I’m observing is that it’s tragic that in the immediate aftermath of a series of high-profile mass shootings people feel like they have to go out and purchase a gun.”

About getting old and dying as a couple.

The Missus and myself were watching some TV show where the wife was gravelly ill and in her deathbed, she begs the husband to continue living to the fullest. You know the script.


A right not a privilege

The governor of Connecticut has decided not to issue gun permits to people on the no Fly list.

I can’t wait for this to go to court.

The Supreme Court punted on the Highland Park AWB case.  I’m glad they did.  The court has bowed to too much public pressure recently.  I think SCOTUS woukd have upheld the AWB because of San Bernardino and not the law.

But this is to far beyond the pale I don’t think it can be ignored.  Denial of a right without due process.  But there is another issue here.  Having to apply for a permit and pay money to exercise a constitutional right is wrong.  I see permits to own no different than a poll tax.  If this goes to court, it might likely be the end to permits to own.  

This is a fight worth fighting.

Checking the news over lunch I see that the legislature of Illinois is trying to figure out how to fire Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.  This is in response to protests calling for his resignation.  This comes only a week after the firing of Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy for covering up criminal activity by the CPD.

Surprised to hear that when CBS News put together a list of the 30 most heavily armed states in the country Arizona didn’t make the cut? So were many gun advocates, some of whom are calling out the network for releasing what they say is an inaccurate and misleading story.In a recent article with no byline, CBS writes: “As America reels from yet another mass shooting, inevitable questions resurface about gun laws and the nation’s pervasive firearm culture. Here is a look at the 30 states with the most guns per capita, according to the ATF’s National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record, and 2013 data from the U.S. Census Bureau.”

One assumes that assault rifles were picked on because they are particularly lethal. Key attributes that make them so include accuracy at range, rapid-fire capability and, most importantly, fearsome ballistics. In their most common calibers – 7.62 and .223 – these weapons discharge bullets whose extreme energy and velocity readily pierce protective garments commonly worn by police, opening cavities in flesh many times the diameter of the projectile and causing devastating wounds…

If you are an old fart of my generation and do not get goosebumps, you are probably dead.

This is one of the songs I wanted to hear her singing since I first knew about her back in 2009. Check her original music in iTunes and download at your own pleasure, you will not be disappointed although I am partial to “Train Go By” and “Sugardaddy” from her first album. I am downloading her latest so you are gonna have to wait till I am done enjoying it.


So, How old is your future attacker?

An arrest has been made in the case of a New York Rabbi who was murdered in North Miami Beach back in 2014.
According to Miami-Dade Police, 15-year-old Deandre Edwin Charles was arrested early Wednesday morning, after a 16-month long investigation.
Sources said the teen, who was 14 at the time of the crime, went on a robbery spree throughout Northeast Miami-Dade and North Miami Beach when he ran into Rabbi Joseph Raskin. Raskin was walking to a Synagogue, on that Aug. 9, Saturday morning, not carrying any money. Charles, who is accused of shooting Raskin to death got away empty handed.

It was from Clint Smith that I heard “You don’t know what your attacker looks like” and that is the truth. If we make a mental composite of what we think who a bad guy can be, we are setting ourselves for adding extra time to our reaction gap.

It is the aggressive action and not the image that determines our defensive posture and reactions. Book…cover…judge.

Guess who else have problems saying “Islamic Terrorists”?

Your friendly Gun Control Groups won’t even use the word terrorist!


And the Prez punted….

Mon, 12/07/2015 - 06:00

Basically he went through the motions and said nothing new. I think he spent about a minute covering both the No Fly/Terror list and “assault weapons and that “we” must do something about them. I know that lots of people were worried about Executive Orders, but the Prez had many of them brutally reversed in court on other issues of less clout. Having an Executive Order about gun reversed by the court would be a stain his ego would not stand in my opinion.


This is why you can’t take them seriously.
