USMC

Piers uses his usual buzzwords; “assault” “killing machines” etc… but surprisingly treats this guest with respect:

A sharp contrast from the Alex Jones mess.  Joshua Boston is the type of guy I’d like people to think, of and associate with the terms “gun owner”, “gun enthusiast”, or even “veteran”.  There is currently so much of a stigma attached to all three of those.

Marine-Joshua-Boston-USMCYou can read the letter he wrote to Feinstein, over at CNN.

Hell yea:

If you ask me everyone needs a KA-BAR.  I’ve got their classic USMC fighting knife with the leather sheath.

Nothing beats a good “making of” video…

Federal prosecutors said former Staff Sgt. Joel Cleve Miller, 40, was found guilty of possession of an illegal chrome AK-47 that he smuggled back from Iraq during a 14-month tour in 2005.  When he returned to his home in Hemet, he bragged to several friends that he smuggled the gun back after it once belonged to Saddam Hussein’s Royal Guard.

Full Story – HERE

As they say “Loose lips lose priceless AK’s and could end up doing 10 years in federal prison”.  Dumbass…

Is the issue more that it’s an NFA weapon? Or that he smuggled it back?  Or both?  I’m just wondering which is considered more serious.  Like if I was there and smuggled Saddam’s gold toilet seat back would I be in just as much trouble?

This is amazing:

I’d quote a line from it, but it’s all awesome. I really can’t get enough of “Shit ____ say” videos.

Brief Synopsis:

  • Katy Perry catches her boyfriend kissing some skank at his work, dumps him and makes a spur of the moment decision at a gas station to join the Marine Corps.
  • Hacks her hair off for some reason (not required for a female Marine, but more dramatic I suppose)
  • Wraps her boobs in tensor bandage (huh? Did she sprain one of them? Yea who knows… there goes 72.9% of the male viewers)
  • Dons Zinc colored American Apparel hoodie (Excellent choice… one of my favorites)
  • Trades in her clothes for a uniform
  • Gets reamed out by a drill instructor, likely for making herself look butch
  • Does some USMC training stuff all while maintaining fantastic trigger discipline

Meh.. i’ll take it.  That would really suck if you had to pull the charging handle back after every shot like she appears to be doing at 2:06

The multiple flashes of her “Ice” watch felt a lot like product placement.  Probably because it was. Pretty lame looking Rolex Submariner copy.

Nah not really.. just a poor logo decision:

Marine Corps scout snipers used the logo of the notorious Nazi SS organization while in Afghanistan in 2010, the service acknowledged Thursday.

We get it: Scout Sniper = SS … still what a terrible idea.

Full story at Marine Corps Times.

I hate to overuse *facepalm* graphics, so just know that the facepalm is implied.

Maximilian, the cartoonist that does Terminal Lance knocks it out of the park with this comic.
