I always get a kick out of when people flip out over stuff like this:

In the coming days, Belcher’s actions will be analyzed through the lens of concussions and head injuries. Who knows? Maybe brain damage triggered his violent overreaction to a fight with his girlfriend. What I believe is, if he didn’t possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.

You can read Jason Whitlock’s article over at FoxSports.

This post was going to be alternately titled “One Nobody Quotes Another – People Flip Out” because I have no idea who either of the people are, nor do I even care slightly what their stance on gun control is.  That said, sports also isn’t on my radar so these two might be sports knowledge gods for all I know.   Really though, if that’s what Jason Whitlock “believes” then let him believe that.  If he is that stupid to think that a 6’2″ 228 lb. linebacker would have any trouble killing someone with even his bare hands if he wanted to, then I think he needs more of a lesson in physics and anatomy than anything else.

I suppose the main issue though is that rather than remaining neutral in the tragedy  NBC now gets painted with a brush of “shoving gun control down our throats”.  

All I know is I really wanna know what Ja Rule has to say about this whole thing.  hahha

This guy is in the f**king zone:

I’m so sick of that “my glock gives me confidence to live my life” bullshit tagline.  In my opinion, whoever came up with that should be fired immediately.

Why don’t big companies ever do anything fun just to troll?  It would have been a perfect opportunity at 0:27 to get a million views on this video by next week if dude would have just loaded the last round of his magazine in backwards.   But nooooooooo… i’m sure even if someone over at Glock’s marketing department got over his or her fear of rejection and suggested such an idea it would be laughed at for days considering the potential liability issues.  Sure enough someone would die in a self defense situation and then police would find the first round backwards… the family would sue glock for a kazillion-bajillion^infinity dollars and then the company would go under.

Out of the few ads of theirs I talked about before this one (see: here here and here), if nothing else this ad is at least not as corny.  Thank god they laid off the Adobe After Effects text effects.

These videos do a good job making normal shooting ranges look mundane.  I wish I knew these guys so I could come take a few shots.

Interesting to see, but kind of unsettling that such snipers actually exist considering the sheer volume of people packed so tightly in the area.   I guess they are counting on the crowd dispersing around any threats such as active shooters.  I wonder if the AR-15 in the 2nd video is giggle switch equipped?

The five female members of Texas Christian University’s national championship rifle team got a shout out from Obama on Monday evening at the NCAA sports champions celebration at the White House; “We’ve got the sharpshooters from the TCU rifle squad. Where are they?” asked Obama as the team members, standing near the camera risers, screamed. “I think that they may be able to give the Secret Service a run for their money.”

Obama told the TCU team members that he, too, practiced shooting with a rifle. “He said he practiced with the Secret Service,”

I don’t know he practices often, but it’s interesting to hear him acknowledge that he has shot with the Secret Service. Regardless, that is about the only cool thing I’ve ever heard him say.

Some hilarious stuff from Reddit user BattleHall:

  • President Obama is anti-handgun… because he knows that a handgun is only good for fighting your way back to your rifle.
  • Obama’s deep, dark secret isn’t that he’s a Muslim, it’s that he’s a gun nut. He has a prayer rug, but it’s embroidered with the image of John Moses Browning.
  • Obama scoffs at the 9mm vs. .45 ACP debate; instead his CCL authorized a tactical nuclear strike.
  • Sometimes, when he’s bored, Obama sends Sarah Brady anonymous gift wrapped packages containing a bottle of Hoppe’s No. 9.
  • After the election, he let everyone freak out and start buying up ammo because he was still sitting on a pallet of corrosive Bulgarian .380 that he got roped into buying at the Knob Creek shoot back in the 90’s, and he’s been trying to unload it for years.
  • In exchange for letting her plant an organic garden at the White House, Michelle has to let Barack keep his prized Dillon XL 650 in the West Wing; no single stage for him, he’s a progressive.

You know what the 1st Rule for a Gunfight is:

  1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.

“So Barack, who’d you bring?”

“The United States Marine Corp.”

“That’ll do…”

Jessie Abbate is a free agent.

No longer with Team Glock, the USPSA’s top female shooter is looking for a new gun company sponsor. While Sig and S&W are rumored to be looking at Abbate, no announcement was made at the USPSA Area 6 match.

I am curious why she is no long with Glock.  Could it be that her contract was up, and when she asked for a raise Glock wasn’t interested?

Seems kind of dumb of them to drop a winner, unless she was asking for a ridiculous amount of money.

Anyone know for sure what happened?
