Mom, farm girl, and tea cup pistol grip aficionado:

Joni-Ernst-GunI like the bad girl image for a change.  I hope she wins, kicks ass and takes names.  I don’t know anything about her, but my initial impression is that she doesn’t come off as the usual sleazy politician type.

Despite the tea cup grip, I actually think the ad is alright.  Beats Bob Quast’s embarrassing gun related ad any day of the week.

Thoughts?

Does that mean the smug look is finally wiped off Senator Leland Yee’s face?

I hope so.  Although he probably won’t sleep well knowing all the criminals out there will still be committing heinous acts with 10 round magazines and bullet button equipped assault rifles.  *eye roll*

From the Gun Owners Of California Website:

We were made aware early this afternoon, directly by the staff of the Appropriations Committee, that SB 249 will not be heard on Thursday, as was previously reported.  They have decided to let the bill die, due to the enourmous pressure put on the Capitol by the pro-gun community led by Gun Owners of California!

Good riddance SB249.  Gun Owners Of California urges CA residents to contact state assembly members and politely let them know not to try such a move again.

Thoughts?

It’s OK for non-haters to hate Senator Leland Yee:

I’m not really into online petitions, because I don’t think they do much… but if you think anonymously putting your name down is going to scrap Senate Bill 249 then please by all means head over to StopSB249.org and sign up.

You can check out the previous discussion on the bill, which includes the CBS piece over on the previous bullet button ban post.

<— That smug grin should be banned from his face.

Thoughts?

HA HA So long:

  • Assembly Bill 1810
  • Assembly Bill 1934
  • Assembly Bill 2358

Check out the NRA site (HERE) for dumbed down descriptions each of those bills.

I’m glad that common sense prevailed (this time).

If he shifted any more weight to his rear foot he probably would have pulled the trigger and fell over.

The video is apparently from the Bi-Annual Knob Creek Machine Gun shoot in West Point Kentucky.

It’s hard to tell from the video, but the gun appears to be a suppressed MAC-10 or M-11 (chambered in 9mm as the description says).  The AR-15 stock kit is a nice touch.

I don’t follow politics at all, but Rand Paul seems to be every bit as interesting as his father.

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.
