So the shooter was muscle, a mere trigger, who was his handler.

Miss Marple 2

Buccaneeer, I figure the wife, who has conveniently disappeared, after telling everyone he was gay.

Question: could one get a husband's phone, text to a gay web site, then delete it so husband doesn't know? Very disturbing that he was posting while shooting, but then the French perrp was posting his crime on Facebook while in progress.

Captain Hate

Have they found Omar's whore wife yet? Until she and his father are under arrest all talk of gun control should stop.

From previous thread on dog rolling behavior:

I've been told that rolling in a scent or rubbing it on them was an instinctual behavior they got from wolves. Apparently the reason is to take the scent back to the den to the others and relay information about what they've found.

If true, it's interesting that after all of the years of domestication, they still have that impulse. If only they knew it would lead to more and more baths they might give it up!

Captain Hate

Today must be dog bath day because Teddy got one today.

We really really need rain in NE Ahia, all the promised storms have disappeared, which hasn't stopped the dimwits who run the local parks from cutting the grass so short it looks as parched as mid August.

Captain Hate,

What if she has been disappeared.

Tell her the private escape plane is waiting, take her up and then shove her out the door. Sharks do the rest.

No tracking, no tracing, no arrest, no one to connect her to ISIS or whoever was behind it.

In case this was some other crime disguised as terrorism, I would look to see who benefits from the death of each person in that nightclub.

For example, what if one guy in there was the heir to a fortune, but in case of his demise it goes to someone else? If he were shot by himself, suspicion would fall on the heir.

If the guy is one of 49, who is going to check on that? What if the wife was in on it?

I would be checking every single victim and survivor for things like that.

As I have hounds and foster hounds, I'm always interesting in their noses and attraction to scents. Dogs are individuals, even within the same litter. I've had some that were so scent driven, they could not be trained to ignore it once they were "on it." I've had others that just enjoy walking and looking around and only occasionally put their noses down.

My current foster (a black and tan coonhound) never looks up during a walk. He put his nose down and smells every inch of the trail. (he may have some bloodhound in his DNA.)

I'm in awe of the cold noses that some SAR dogs have - can track an old scent even after rain and much time has passed. They say Bloodhounds have 300 million scent receptors - the most of any breed.

Will it ever be possible turn around the view of those who insist on calling Islam a 'religion of peace'? It's anything but peaceful and merely latent in its brutality, until an Imam instructs its followers to commit jihad! If Americans hadn't cooled culturally to their Judaeo-Christian roots, practicing Islamist's would never have been allowed to enter the country. Islam is totally incompatible with our principles of individual liberty and freedom.

Our founders knew of Muhammad's Quran and the sinister verses therein. They were historically familiar with Islam's cruel and bloodthirsty acts of conquest down through the centuries. They would be aghast at our utter stupidity.

I've read that the Arabic word that is translated to "peace" more accurately means "submission".


BTDT, the problem is which Christian roots? What one group of Christians thinks is evil, for example, enabling people to break laws, another group of Christians thinks is holy compassion.

Just as an utterly pedantic tidbit, Eugene Stoner the brilliant inventor for Armalite [division of Fairchild] developed first the AR-10 in 7.62 NATO as an alternative to the heavy and bulky M-14.
His associate then scaled the AR-10 down to the AR-15 in 5.56 NATO.

As it happens the Ruger Mini-14 is just a scaled down version of the original M-14, scaled down by the very same dude who was responsible for the AR-15.
His name escapes me at the moment.

Quick question, re: projectiles: I was trying to compare the muzzle energy of a .223 versus a revolutionary war musket, and I'm seeing ~1,500 foot pounds versus ~60. That doesn't seem right at first glance. Any other gun dudes (or dudettes) have an opinion?

-Left unmentioned - rather than substituting a Glock handgun for a scary looking black rifle, a determined killer could simply buy a semiautomatic rifle that does not terrify Dianne Feinstein.--

Yeah, like the one below that shoots calibers from .243 Winchester [somewhat more powerful than a 5.56] to .338 Winchester Magnum [vastly more powerful].

From the dead thread. I have no prior knowledge of that site on the GPS blocking/diverting, but I think there is a lot of truthiness lurking in the context.

Beasts,
Figures I see for a 5.56 NATO are ~1,300 f/p muzzle energy.
My calcs on a Brown Bess musket ball of 545 grains at 1,000 fps comes out around ~1,500 f/p of me.
Musket ball is 1/3 as fast but 9 times as heavy.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Agreed M/T. Like I said I have no illusions about the vast technical strides the Chinese, Russians and others have been making while we shoot Hellfires at sand fleas and worry about making sure our APCs have biofuels and our transgendered infantry get to squat over the girls latrine trench.
The sidebar of that site was all far left whack job stories so who knows how much was truth and how much outright Iranian propaganda.

BeenThereDoneThat

cheerleader @ 3:09 -Christianity doesn't force anyone to believe or to submit under the threat of the sword, as does fundamental Islam. It's all voluntary. Believer's instructions, support and advice are included in the Holy Bible, Yes, there are groups of modern day 'Christians' who misinterpret, or mostly ignore the Bible. The left has infiltrated many denominations and watered down the gospel to the point of their not being Christian any longer. These churches are simply 'of the world' - they cater to the present culture, without enlightening, correcting, or teaching biblical truths. They are no longer true to their ministry or calling. The Bible teaches: Know thy enemy - leftist churches are EMBRACING the enemy!

That's why as many denomination memberships are declining, Bible study groups and non-denominational Bible churches are growing. People long for the real stuff...

--Spurred by Orlando Shooting, G.O.P. Senator Offers a Gun Control Compromise--

Can someone identify a single mass or serial shooter who was on such a list?
Orlando? Nope.
San Bernardino? Nope.
West Virginia? Nope.

Sandy Hook, Santa Barbara, Colorado Springs, Charelston, etc? Nope.

If by some freak chance a mass shooter wannabe is denied a gun through a NICS check is there any person who believes they would not find or steal one?

Googling, found at thefiringline.com:

A Brown Bess loaded with 80 grains of Fg powder and a .69 caliber ball (494 grain) has a MV of 809 fps & ME of 718 (fpe). At 100 yards it's 680 fps and ME 507.

From the Lyman Blackpowder Handbook a Brown Bess with using FFg powder and shooting a 545 grain .715" ball produces the following:

W/20 grs of powder, MV 341 with ME of 141 fps.
W/30 grs, MV 455 w/ME 250 fps.
W/40 grs, MV 569 w/ME 391 fps.
W/50 grs, MV 662 w/ME 530 fps. Energy @ 100 is 410 fps.
W/60 grs, MV 754 w/ME 687 fps. Energy @ 100 is 531 fps.
W/70 grs, MV 817 w/ME 807 fps. Energy @ 100 is 616 fps.
W/80 grs, MV 879 w/ME 934 fps. Energy @ 100 is 700 fps.
W/90 grs, MV 943 w/ME 1075 fps. Energy @ 100 is 782 fps.

For Father’s Day, my wife is getting me a Mec 600 Jr. 12ga press so I can reload shells for skeet shooting.

Of course, you're right, Iggy. I was thinking in terms of Ephesians 6:11-12

11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

*And it's important to pray for all Muslims as well. They have been greatly deceived.

SBW, nice tool! I use one of these. Note: you shoot faster than you can reload. If you fill a bunch of cases over the winter, you can almost keep up with shooting in nice weather.

When I was a kid--way back in the way back--I would plink at cans with an old octagonal barrel lever action Marlin Model 39. Dad had it for 20 years before I was born, so the rifle was on the order of 30 plus years old when my brother and I used it.

If I recall correctly the tube magazine held something like 20 LR .22 caliber bullets. Of course you had to work the lever action and pull the trigger for each shot. And it dodtake a while to load the magazine. But if our Gay ISIS Caballero down there in Orlando had a Marlin .39 and a Glock, he could have done just as much damage. And that dear old Marlin Model 39 wouldn't scare Di Fi. OTOH my Dad did kill an elk with it. So there's that.

James D.

From clarice's link @ 5:40

I know this was commented on the other day, but it's simply monstrous and deserves to be emphasized again:

On Wednesday Goldberg wrote that in Obama’s view, discussing radical Islam is counterproductive because it harms the moderates who need to stand up to the radicals.

“Obama,” he wrote, “believes that [a] clash is taking place [not between Western and Muslim civilization but] within a single civilization, and that Americans are sometimes collateral damage in this fight between Muslim modernizers and Muslim fundamentalists.”

Why is EVERY SINGLE GOP POLITICIAN AND PUNDIT not shouting about this at the top of their lungs? You have the President of the United States talking to a friendly, compliant journalist and saying that the deaths of American citizens - the people he has sworn an oath to protect and defend - are merely "collateral damage" in a war being waged between factions of a foreign entity. And he is OK with this. He does not see it as a problem, or a crisis.

The 49 people died in Orlando are just "collateral damage" in a fight that is not ours, but which is being conducted in part on our soil nonetheless. And the President of the United States is just fine with that.

And yet, all the GOP seems to be able to do is criticize Trump for speaking a truth about Obama that Obama himself has BRAGGED ABOUT in interviews.

That single quote, just in itself, is grounds for impeachment, and frankly a prosecution for high treason. But we have not heard ONE FREAKING WORD about it from anyone in the supposed opposition party.

to say I am disgusted, and enraged, would be a massive understatement.
