The new rules:
- Any time we receive a report on Facebook about a post promoting the private sale of a commonly regulated item, we will send a message to that person reminding him or her to comply with relevant laws and regulations. We will also limit access to that post to people over the age of 18.
- We will require Pages that are primarily used by people to promote the private sale of commonly regulated goods or services to include language that clearly reminds people of the importance of understanding and complying with relevant laws and regulations, and limit access to people over the age of 18 or older if required by applicable law.
- We will provide special in-app education on Instagram for those who search for sales or promotions of firearms.
- We will not permit people to post offers to sell regulated items that indicate a willingness to evade or help others evade the law. For example, private sellers of firearms in the U.S. will not be permitted to specify “no background check required,” nor can they offer to transact across state lines without a licensed firearms dealer.

Move along folks… nothing to see here. I’ll eat my words though when this time next year the report will come out that since these new rules were put in place, criminals found it very difficult to obtain firearms illegally and crime drastically decreased.
Follow me on Facebook and Instagram btw. I have been giving some books and t-shirts away on Instagram you’re missing out on if you’re not following.

Well that got swept under the rug and cleaned up in editing. Now we’re left with just a plain old bullet exiting the barrel:
Someone sent me the full old video in 720p, so I’ll put it in my “archives” along with the other classic removed videos I managed to collect.
Thoughts? Think someone got fired over that mistake?
Poor guns getting picked on by those mean mean boys:
Iraqveteran8888 x Talking Lead … some of my favorite internet gun guys right there. Talking Lead is a great podcast you should make sure to check out, the guys are naturals (The episodes are also up on iTunes).
1:30 – *PLAGH* dog slobber all over it!
After seeing the video I’m not entirely sure guns aren’t actually evil. I just believe the Glock and the AR-15 are just such a well mannered guns, they probably just knew better than to flip out and kill everyone in the room. Those particular firearms have a lot more to lose than say a Hi-Point or an SKS for instance.
Tune in LIVE here at 1:30pm CST:
What will he have in store for us? Ghost guns? Connecticut talk? High capacity assault clips? Shoulder things that go up? Maybe in an amazing twist he appoints me the new MFCEO? *Wildcard bitches YEEEEEHAW*
If you can’t tune in live, the video will be able to be played in full once his speech is over too. Let me know what you think in the comments.
VICE Motherboard always delivers with the documentaries.
Doug getting his hands dirty for a clean source of power… I like that. The documentary itself didn’t really say / show much, but at least it put this guy on my / our radar now.
His forum Coulter Smithing, actually looks really awesome I’ll have to check it out.
At the very least, how badass would micro nuclear reactors to power mobile devices be? That’s what I’m talking about.
A compilation reel of some guys that keep it real:
Damn I had not heard of most of them! Here’s the list:
Thoughts? Would operate with?
