TRENTON, N.J. - New Jersey will hold its first bear hunt in five years this December to thin a growing black bear population that wildlife biologists say is increasingly coming into contact with suburban New Yorkers.
Wildlife officials will issue as many as 10,000 hunting permits, anticipating a kill of 500 to 750 black bears out of an estimated population of 3,400. A similar hunt in 2005 killed 297 black bears, down from 328 killed during a hunt in 2003.

I know a good idea for an episode of Jersey Shore when I see one. Can you imagine arming all of them with rifles and telling them “Go shoot some bears”?
Edmonton, Alberta - Two Edmonton artists are shocked that part of their internationally renowned work, The Gun Sculpture, was subject to censorship at a United Nations exhibition in Vienna this summer after pressure from the Chinese delegation.
The 4.5-tonne sculpture, welded together from deactivated guns, landmines and ammunition, has been shown in many countries, including at UN headquarters in New York in 2001, and has never run into problems, said artist Sandra Bromley, who built the sculpture with Wallis Kendal.
And cue the deep “purpose” statement…. now:
The sculpture — which includes 7,000 small arms, all of which were used in conflicts around the world — is a statement about the history of guns. The victims’ photos are designed to “reflect the impact of guns, the human loss,” she said.
Actually the meaning of this does make a lot more sense than lots of the meanings that artists normally have.

Looks like the Borg cube, but with guns! I need to get some large scale gun art such as that for decoration.

I posted about Steve Lee a couple of times in the past (HERE and HERE) because of his “I Like Guns” song.
This video and song has a different tone to it though. Steve seems VERY sedated in this one … Maybe those oppressive Australian gun laws are getting the best of him?
I thought the original “I like Guns” song was catchy, and the video was neat to watch. This song though is just flat out depressing… excuse me while I go finish off my bucket of Coldstone ice cream while sobbing and reminiscing of a time when gun laws were not so restrictive.
For the love of god, cheer up Steve.
While I’m picking apart the video, I figured it was worth mentioning I thought it was odd that at 1:55 min he takes his cocked revolver (finger on the trigger) and points it at the roof while singing and not paying attention. Then the next scene after that he’s shooting at metal popper targets from probably about 5 yards away, where he hits his first target.. then blatantly puts the next shot high into the (particle board?) backstop. Not that it’s a big deal that he missed (I miss all the time), I just thought it was funny to include in the video.
Dismounted Soldiers often carry heavy combat loads that increase the stress on the body leading to potential injuries. With a HULC exoskeleton, these loads are transferred to the ground through powered titanium legs without loss of mobility.
Gotta love technology. Might as well just go one step further and in case every soldier in an IronMan style climate controlled bulletproof suit; I’m sure that’s coming.

The first episode of the Cat Shit One animated series is out, and blog reader Adam S was awesome enough to send it over for me to check out.
Here are my thoughts on it:
- The animation and physics are incredible… It’s basically like a grownups version of Toy Story, but with animals and guns.
- The camera angles in the animation are really neat as well, and really add to the viewing experience.
- Sound effects and music are top notch.
- One discrepancy I did note, is that the rabbit’s hearing protection is always at the side of their face, not where their ears are… not a big deal though.
The main rabbit character “Packy” has what looks like an m4, but it takes AK mags… a lot of people think that was a mistake, but it’s not. The rifle exists and is made by Knights Armament Company, model: KAC SR-47
Not that much happens in this 20 minute first episode, but I’m sure the story will develop more in the remaining episodes.

Buy the first 3 graphic novels on Amazon if your interested here:
Have any of you guys seen it yet? If so, what did you think?
In case you’re wondering where shes from… she was the Playboy “Playmate Of The Year” in 2007.
Hahahah she did NOT like that flame thrower. She really seemed to have fun shooting everything else though, and actually seemed to hold her own for the most part.
