raid

During a house oversight committee meeting:

Clear-80-percent-Lower-ar15-ReceiverI can tell I like the cut of Massie’s jib, however LOL at the ATF ever destroying that list.  Like that’s going to happen.  Sure they might “destroy” it, but I can’t see them ever actually destroying it if you catch my drift.  If you missed the whole ARES Armor debacle you can catch up at the link.

Thomas Massie represents the 4th district of Kentucky.

Thoughts?

YouTuber TheRealTrippleB with a great video:

TheRealTrippleB-YouTubeDamn when someone is that good in front of the camera, puts that much effort into editing, and that much effort into making the video look so clean it’s so refreshing.  He had a lot of good things to say too… and the video was funny which automatically wins points from me.  His beard is legit too, so bonus points for that.

If you need to get caught up on the ATF Ares Armor raid follow that link.

I still see some buzz around the internet that the 80% lowers were somehow “illegal” because of the steps taken in the manufacturing process.  I really hope that’s not the case, because if it is that’s a pretty large oversight on behalf of the manufacturer.

Thoughts?

Crib notes:

ARES Armor sold around 5000 80% AR-15 Lowers… ATF wanted customer names (because California?).  ARES SAID piss off… then this happened on March 15th:

Yea they got all up in ARES Armor’s ass alright.  Ouch.

Deal-With-ItSummary: ATF will do whatever it wants to do.  Deal with it bros.

Some pictures and more information over at Dailymail.

I didn’t even realize they were in Oceanside, CA.  I was there with my family this Christmas a few blocks away.

Vigilant Spectre weighs in (not a fat joke because he’s actually quite trim now):

Assault-Rifle-Because-I-Am-BlackNot looking into the camera is so artsy, I love it.

Spectre is wearing the Restricted LE/Gov Use Only t-shirt from ENDO Apparel.

So what’s the deal guys… is this going to end well for ARES Armor?  For freedom as a whole?

Could this trailer be any more useless?

The film supposedly chronicles the events that led up to the raid and killing of Osama Bin Laden on May 2, 2011 by SEAL Team Six.

I normally like this type of movie, so I’ll have to see it.

Release Date: Dec 19, 2012

NYpost journalist Susannah Cahalan has some super secret 3rd party insider info.

Read the story at the NYpost – HERE

Mike M. alerted me to this story, and at first I didn’t see what the big deal was until he pointed out a number of inconsistencies:

Green lasers – Didn’t they originally have nightvision?  That would have lit it up making it useless.

Flashlights – Same idea as green lasers unless there was some IR filter on them I suppose.

US Navy m855 5.56 Predator ammunition – Mike says the m855 is the “penetrator” not predator.

SEALs missing their targets – The new account of the story makes them seem somewhat incompetent.  Also, is it standard practice to keep your rifle on SEMI when on a kill mission?  I just assumed you want to put maximum lead in the bastard as quickly as possible.

This looks like two possible things to me.  1) Susannah Cahalan is trying to make a name for her self by being the first to get this “REAL” story out there.   2) Former SEAL Team Six commander Chuck Pfarrer is trying to push his new book.    Wouldn’t all that information on the raid still be classified?  I highly doubt the U.S. government would be on board to divulge top secret information in order for a former employee to spice up his new book.
