Jack is Back (Again)!

OT: Cross post from other thread.

Anyone know if PUK had any thoughts on Thatcher and her time as PM?

Rob Crawford
As irrational as the rest? Really?

Yes. They're all irrational.

What makes a "bayonet lug" so dangerous? And a "grenade launcher mount" is useless without a grenade launcher and the grenades for it -- items that fall under the 1930's era NFA and require massive fees, permission of local law enforcement, and opening yourself to periodic (no warrant needed) searches by the BATFEIEIO.

And that's just to get permission to BUY them. Then you have to find them...

there is nothing crazy about wanting to feel good, and it has a tiny chance of doing some good.

Utter crap. It has NO chance of doing any good. Do you think a lunatic who spends YEARS planning his gotterdamerung, as happened with Newtown, won't get what the weapons he wants the same way drug gangs get theirs?

Liberalized concealed carry -- or open carry -- has more chance of doing some good, and infringes on no one's rights.

henry

But that is not the target audience for a magazine ban.

Law abiding citizens are the target here.

In a home defense context the defender has ample opportunity to prepare.

Right, home invaders always call for an appointment first.

What is very unhelpful is searching for rationality where there is only an emotional appeal to increase government power.

James D.

"There's nothing crazy about wanting to feel good." I agree with that.

But there is a LOT crazy about passing complex, restrictive, unconstitutional, unenforceable laws guaranteed to have unintended consequences, to feel good.

Rob Crawford

BTW -- there's no Constitutional right to "feel good".

Rick Ballard

Henry,

Mrs. Richard C. Blum saw the immediate aftermath of the termination with prejudice of George Moscone and Harvey Milk. As a committed member of the oligarchy, her fear is arguably justifiable. It would be surprising if the lawlessness exhibited by the upper trash was not emulated by the population as a whole and even more surprising if violent reprisal against connected thieves such as Don Corzione do not become more commonplace.

Will the assassinations of prosecutors by 211 Crew be emulated by the Mexican Mafia? What type of contracts will our modern condottieri accept?

Mrs. Blum's gut spasms in the United States Senate are completely understandable if the possibility of a just reward increases.

matt

Okay, so Hollywood has a large percentage of the dope smokers and muddle mainlining on zombie movies and vampires and werewolves and aliens and evil super villains (well, we do have Kim Jong Un - "f*#k you, Hans Brix!).

Does one really think a .223 will take down a zombie or an alien wearing super duper armor?

I am worried that we need to defend ourselves against those threats. They're going to take some real hardware to kill.

Maybe this is the way we have to phrase the argument.

Captain Hate

These points are all moot until we hear what emerges from the damaged brain of Saint Gabby and the oxygen starved grey matter of her former astronaut husband.

daddy

I suppose it's already been mentioned somewhere in the threads this morning, but no harm done by congratulating Clarice on this mornings Instalance.

Well deserved, Clarice! You got a "Yep."

bgates

"ineffective" is not synonomous with "irrational"

You're saying that it's not necessarily irrational to pass legislation that can't possibly attain its stated objective?

lyle

Is Toomey about to cave on "reasonable, common sense" gun control? I thought he was a Tea Party fave.

jimmyk

Anyone know if PUK had any thoughts on Thatcher and her time as PM?

No doubt, but in any case, I suspect the two of them are having a beer with Reagan now, so to speak.

jimmyk

Here's one from PUK:

"It's as if Thatcher had never existed." [DoT]

For British feminists,she didn't.Mention Margaret Thatcher and there is an instant replay of the bedroom scene from "The Exorcist". I think most of them would like a female Prime Minister, as long as it isn't another woman.

Not sure if this works:

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--A ban on high capacity magzaines may not be Constitutional and may not be enforceable, but even Mr. Rosenberg concedes that a higher capacity magazine makes a gun more effective for home defenders or the police. That leaves him with the unconvincing position that a high capaicty magazine increases the defensive value of the gun but doesn't increase its offensive value.-

Perhaps his argument is that law abiding people will be the ones who will tend to lose their high capacity defensive magazines while lawbreakers will continue to obtain and use offensive high capacity mags.
Seen in that light, which is the light of the real world, his argument is convincing and rational.

I said in an earlier comment that my only interest (principled or practical) is that the result be that it enhances of keeping the House and Senate out of Dem hands 2015. Given that objective, IMO the best play at this point for conservatives is to agree to expand background checks to most of the 10-20% not covered, (but still exempt family transfers and loans), in exchange the law is clarified to relieve legal gun owners from unnecessary hassles/delays they now suffer-- then pass that in the House and Senate. Let the Dems have their Senate vote (after a Cruz/Paul filibuster info mercial about liberty) on assault weapons and magazines AND LOSE in the Senate. I think this is the best play because it keeps the faith with law abiding gun owners who go through background checks now-- and it drives a wedge between the Dems and a major support group of their's-- the gun grabbers. Indeed, Obummer may veto something like this b/c of the damage it would do with the gungrabbers.

Re: The imminent bankruptcy of the publicly funded Electric Car company Fisker.

I know 2 Chinese outfits are trying to buy the company at penny's on the dollar, but the idea that makes me chuckle is some American entrepreneur wanting to buy the collapsing company so that he can stick in fuel burning Corvette Engines into the Fisker auto-body.

It would be comical if our $192 Million in Taxpayer funding of that idiotic Green Project actually wound up producing gas-guzzlin' sports cars.

And Lou Dobbs had an interesting comment on Megyn's Show today.

He said he keeps hearing about the Government picking Winners and Losers. Well he says he has asked the Treasury and Energy Departments to please advise him on the "Winners", because his research has been unable to find a single "Winner" picked by the DOE. He says losers are all over the place, but not a single winner he can find.

Another US Diplo murdered over the weekend--what is John Effin' Kerry and Obummer doing about it? 2 Diplos murdered in 6 months -- 2 were murdered during Bush's 8 years, before that was Buckley in lebanon in 1984, before that 2 during Carter's term. What are we doing about the murder of our Diplos by Jihadists during the past 6 months?

daddy

So you're 02:40 was the same clip as at your 02:39.

No big deal. It was worth watching twice, and worth commenting on 3 or 4 or, with what the hell's going on with Typepad today, maybe even 5 times.

This headline in todays ADN startled me:

PETA apologizes to Iditarod musher over dog death accusation

Wow!. That'd be a first.

But then when you go to the story, down in Paragraph 4 you get "the rest of the story."

Drobny's attorney threatened to sue if PETA didn't retract its original accusation, and the organization did so Friday.

Please bgates, please become our ADN editor.
