Virginia whiteboy rap.  Everyone meet “Mini Thin”:

Hold-This-Lhaha whoa that’s terrible.  Creepy too.  Really makes me not want to visit West Virginia.

2:26 – “I ain’t scared to say it these dudes are wack / fuck every white rapper who tries to act black” <— WHAT?  So Mini Thin is oblivious to the fact he just dissed himself?

If you find you can’t get enough of Mini Thin, or you want a creepy Confederate Flag Jason hockey mask ($23) by all means hit up his website and buy everything.

Thoughts?

According to two witnesses, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia took fellow Justice Elena Kagan out for a lesson in skeet shooting at his shooting club in Virginia last week.

Full Story – HERE

Interesting… Seems odd that a story vouched for by two witnesses without and pictures would be published everywhere. Not that I don’t believe it happened, I would just like more proof.

Sounds like a great opportunity.  By the sounds of it, you don’t even need to live in Virginia to take advantage of the offer, since non-residential permits are available.   All you need is an .edu email address.

I encourage all students, faculty, and staff of colleges and universities to take advantage of this offer.

I applaud Students for Concealed Carry on Campus for making this happen,  and wholeheartedly support their cause.

Remember you only have until Midnight until April 10th, if you want it for free.

As always, I recommend the book by Massad Ayoob (pictured left) for anyone that wants to read up on concealed carry.

Roanoke, Virginia – A J.C. Penney security guard followed a shoplifting suspect to the mall parking lot and fired a single shot in an effort to stop him. The man was detained until police arrived. (Source)

No word on whether the Segway sustained any damage. :P

A definitely case of Paul Blart Syndrome.

Why the heck does a mall security guard have a gun anyway?  I didn’t think mall security had guns anywhere in the country.  My guess is it was probably his personal weapon which he carried regardless of his employer’s rules.

He likely caused a shitstorm of problems for himself, all because he was too proud to let some scumbag take some insured goods that were not even his.  Was it really worth it?

The weapon will recoil backwards and to the weak side of the grip.  This sideways motion can move the weapon off the target.  It is helpful to tilt the weapon to the weak side from 45 to 90 degrees (it will vary with the shooter).  The recoil-induced motion will then more nearly stay within the target outline.

More on why the FBI chose the m1076 10mm back in the 1990’s – HERE

Anyone have a scan of the original training manual, or any other manual to verify this?

68 years ago, on Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese war planes attacked Pearl Harbor, the forward base for the United States in the Pacific, effectively drawing the United States into war with Japan.  This picture of the sinking battleship USS West Virginia, illustrates the extent of the physical destruction.  The crew of the boat in the foreground is attempting to save sailors in the water.  The sinking of the USS West Virginia resulted in the death of 106 crewmen.

Read the official battle report, submitted on December 11, 1941

Never forget those who died… never forget those who killed them.
