People might reconsider tailgating this guy:

Pretty classy.  The fake bullet holes on the rear fender are uncalled for though.  Stupid crap like that just brings the entire look down a notch..

I wonder if the same company makes those to fit a full size Glock on a sport bike? :P

The so-called open-carry movement took a hit today when the state Assembly approved a bill that would forbid anyone from openly carrying an unloaded handgun in public.

The Assembly approved the bill 45-25 with nine members not voting. It now moves to the Senate for consideration.

Ugh.. Brutal. I was hoping it would miraculously get squashed.

Fairbanks, Alaska – A woman wants a face-to-face apology from two Alaska State Troopers who detained her for 20 minutes after they spotted her walking with a gun in her hand.

Beth Allard is a certified firearms instructor and the daughter of Joe Nava, a prominent local gun-safety and gun-rights advocate. She was carrying a snub-nosed .38-special revolver while walking on a dirt road near her mother’s house.

Allard said she kept the pistol pointed down with her finger away from the trigger, a method she frequently uses while jogging.

Call me crazy, but I don’t think jogging with a loaded gun in your hand is necessary unless you are about to engage a target. I know someone is going to bring up the topic of bears or wolves, but really…. if that is the reason, she should be carrying something more than a .38 special.

Holsters are so cheap, she could pick up any number of styles that would still render the gun accessible to her within milliseconds.

If I saw someone jogging with a gun in their hand I’d assume that they were either chasing someone, or being chased by someone.

Another heads up for all you Californians who read the blog…

Wednesday May 12, the Assembly Appropriations Committee passed Assembly Bill 1934.  AB1934 now heads to the floor of the Assembly for consideration.

Source: NRA-ILA

Not good guys… Not good.

It’s your last chance to contact your Assembly Member and urge them to oppose the Bill.

A reader and frequent commenter Bryce who is a resident of California notified me that they are definitely trying to sneak this one in.  He says there is NO COVERAGE whatsoever on the local news stations. Very troubling.

In case you need an excuse to visit Starbucks:

Remember it only runs until May 16th!

Just when I thought I finally shook the Frappuccino monkey off my back, they pull this. :P

I seriously used to drink about 5 Venti double blended java chip Frappuccionos per week.  Realizing that not only was that habit costly, but also terribly unhealthy I switched to drinking decaf iced Americanos once or twice a week. Thank god my metabolism hasn’t slowed down.

Also, funny story… I walk into Starbucks today to take advantage of this deal, and it appeared that the large (oh excuse me.. VENTI) size got bigger.  I dismissed it as my imagination at work, but then I got home and did some googling.  The new Venti is called a Trenta, and is actually 31 oz. rather than the normal paltry 24 oz.

Looking at the Starbucks Frappuccino nutritional data page, I notice one glaring omission…

It appears Starbucks doesn’t offer this flavoring ( yet ):

Starbucks, the hearts of gun owners are already won… but please just impress us one last time and give us bacon syrup.

It would actually likely be disgusting, but that wouldn’t stop me from trying it.

For those thinking the Bacon Torani Syrup is another one of my clever photoshops – think again, it’s real!

But I digress… my point is, go enjoy a half price Frappuccino, and go armed.
