assault weapon

California is the frontline in the civil rights battle between public safety and the 2nd Amendment:

This is a kickstarter project with a goal of $65000.  If after watching the video you’d like to support the project click on the embed to the left and get your credit card ready.  The minimum pledge is $1 (or $10 if you want an HD download of the film).  The deadline to show your support is October 5th.

If you want to subtly show your disgust with the gun laws in California, pick up a California Flag “No Right To Bear Arms” t-shirt from ENDO Apparel.

Think the film has potential?  I like the idea of a project such as this, but if it’s just going to include interviews with some people and then a lot of derpy classic news clips I’ve seen a million times (and can see still on youtube) then I don’t really see the point in wasting my money or time.

If a $10 pledge included a “shoulder thing that goes up”, i’d likely go for it. ;)

Senator Yee, fighting against law abiding gun owners:

“What I am proposing is to essentially prevent any mechanism that would allow the conversion of an assault weapon into a way that you can fire these magazines upon magazines without effort” -Senator Yee

I have two questions:

  1. How often are what the media likes to call “Assault” rifles used in violent crimes in CA?
  2. What percentage of  “Assault” rifles in evidence right now have bullet buttons or fixed magazines?

I’m pretty sure I already know the answer to both questions… but i’ll humor Senator Yee and support his ban if the answers turn out to be “Very often & most”.

Full Story – HERE

The initial restriction, and this new bill about to be put forward is a typical example of bullshit that does nothing but further inconvenience the law abiding.  Go interview 100 gang members and ask them what they think of magazine capacity restrictions, adjustable stocks, and shoulder things that go up.  I’ll save you the trouble and let you know in advance you’ll get 100 guys laughing in your face.

Thoughts?

This kid totally does not give a shit that he’s talking to the president:

That’s what I love about kids.  Some adults on the other hand are so fake and annoying….. There were like 30 of them in that room, acting like Obama was doing something groundbreaking.  OMG OMG he’s pumping a bicycle pump!! *continuous camera shutter noise*  How “regular guy” of him *continuous camera shutter noise*.

The marshmallow gun was only a single shot… no sign of high capacity marshmallow assault clips or shoulder things that go up… so it’s probably safe from a ban for now.  That is until this kid hits highschool and decides to shoot down a police helicopter.

Thoughts?
