gun

This happened.   Obama said it’s easier to get a Glock than a computer or book:

Holy, Al Sharpton is abrasive.  Anyway, regarding the Obama statement… I don’t know why some gun owners keep pretending (in the face of criticism like this from Obama) that guns are not EXTREMELY easy to get through some avenues.  Colion Noir even went so far as saying “I could walk to a library right now and get a book”… Yea and you’d have to SIGN UP FOR A LIBRARY CARD (last time I checked).  Sure buying a gun from an FFL is more of a pain in the ass, but why bother denying that private sales are perhaps the easiest thing on earth in most states?  This is the exact info cut as pasted from the ATF’s own website:

What recordkeeping procedures should be followed when two unlicensed individuals want to engage in a firearms transaction?

When a transaction takes place between unlicensed persons who reside in the same State, the GCA does not require any record keeping. An unlicensed person may sell a firearm to another unlicensed person in his or her State of residence and, similarly, an unlicensed person may buy a firearm from another unlicensed person who resides in the same State. It is not necessary under Federal law for a Federal firearms licensee (FFL) to assist in the sale or transfer when the buyer and seller are “same–State” residents.

There may be State or local laws or regulations that govern this type of transaction. Contact the office of your State Attorney General for information regarding any such requirements.

MrColionNoir-ENDO-New-York-ReloadIn my opinion denying or not mentioning that private transfers are indeed as simple as getting a book or a computer shouldn’t be done.  I realize Colion Noir only had about 4 minutes, but when both sides of a debate don’t give the full info on something this is where problems and arguments happen.

Jimmy Kimmel got a hold of a exclusive video:

Police-forget-gun-bathroomMeh, mildly funny but predictable.  Seemed like they needed something to fill time.

Police do seem to have a problem forgetting their guns in bathrooms from time to time though.  I just quit talking about stories like that because they aren’t at all interesting.

If you haven’t done this… bro do you even operate?

Qualifications: Thick operator beards.

Buck Yeager talked about this in the past too, so I’m not surprised at the results.  Decent thing to know I suppose, even though most of you will probably not be in a hand to hand gun tussle with someone holding a loaded handgun.  Notice I said “most of YOU”… yea I operate operationally in operations so I do this kind of thing on the reg, it’s really not even a thing anymore.

Reporters print one up then take it on the Eurostar train from London to Paris:

Eurostar-Train-3D-Printed-Gun

Two reporters passed completely unchallenged through strict airport-style security to carry the gun on to a London to Paris service in the weekend rush-hour, alongside hundreds of unsuspecting travelers. The gun produced by the reporters was split into three pieces and concealed in the clothing of two reporters who bought standard class tickets to Paris.  They did not attempt to smuggle the firing pin or bullet for safety and legal reasons, but small metal items could be easily concealed.

Full Story – DailyMail

OOOOOOOOOOO that’s going to have lawmakers and security over there pissed off.  The reporter in the pics took a page right out of the “It’s not cool unless you have your finger on the trigger” book haha.

It has been mentioned before, but since that train existed one could have easily brought a piece of pipe and a nail on it which could also fire a .380 round and no one was shitting a brick over that.

In related Liberator news, MegaUpload scumbag Kim Dotcom who I thought was a huge proponent for internet freedom removed the weapon files from his servers because they are “scary”. *eye roll*

The start of this talk is suspiciously identical to Buck Yeagers “Three Battles monologue“:

Both guys take credit… who originally came up with the list?  Sure it’s entirely possible two separate people could come up with the exact same idea, I just like to get to the bottom of this type of stuff.  Yeager’s video was released October 30, 2012 and this new video was released yesterday November 16, 2012.  On Yeagers facebook page he has a post he wrote on Feburary 5, 2012 which also deals with the three battles.

Is this a standard talk that instructors give to students at training classes?

00:30 – “I actually like to break it down…” is not what people normally say if they aren’t taking credit for what they are about to say.

Brannon does go into a whole bunch of stuff that isn’t in the Yeager video after that initial part.

Note: No Buck Yeager approved pic in this post because I have the sneaking suspicion he would not approve.

Thoughts?
