What we need is...

Some common sense Branch cutter control.

A man with a history of domestic violence was charged with attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed his girlfriend with a branch cutter, seriously inuring her early Saturday on the South Side.

Obviously, the proliferation of these assault branch cutters must be stopped. We need to look at ways to close the hardware store loophole that allows these dangerous weapons to be accessed easily. We call for a 5 day waiting period and branch cutter registration to stem the tide of this violence.

Another of the Greatest Generation Gone

I bumped into this this morning. The greatest generation in American history is leaving us. What will this nation become when they're gone? Look at what it has been allowed to become while they're still here.

Preparedness Part Deux

I often stick a little something in here about the art of being prepared. My readings at War on Guns by David Codrea revealed this link and I think it might be worthwhile to go check it out and read through the material there. Free is everyone's second favorite F word.

Take A Look Around

Yep, posting got all slow again but that's why I have so many exciting links in the ol blog roll. There is a place that you can go to learn all kinds of cool stuff.

Over at Brigid's, you have a nice little primer on basic reloading without spending a ton of money.

Always a good read at the Anti Idiotarian Rottweiler.

KABA keeps you up to date on all the important gun news.

Tam lets you know where the cool kids gather, and when.

So even though I may not be writing every day, I'm certainly reading and you should too.

Fire Letterman

I would like you all to go support this:


I have never thought the man was the least bit funny plus I think his band sucks, but what he said about the Palin family goes so far beyond the pale that it makes one sick.

May History Never Forget Your Valor

65 years ago today, Allied troops stormed the beaches at Normandy. Approximately 10,000 of them paid the ultimate price for freedom. The survivors are fewer now and getting fewer everyday.

To them I say: May History Never Forget Your Valor.

Speaking of valor, I would like to point out that today is also the 67th anniversary of the Battle of Midway. Today specifically being day 2 and the day where the last air attacks took place claiming the IJN Mikuma. This was also the day that the I-168 topedoed and sank the Destroyer Hammann and heavily damaged the Carrier Yorktown, which would finally sink on the 7th.

Late Again

I just now remembered that it is past time for a little feature that has become a tradition here. The early Summer/supposed to have been done in the Springtime, preparedness post.

Here's a site you might be interested in for basic supplies. Nitro-Pak.com it may sound slightly paranoid to you but take a look around where you live. Jobs are disappearing, taxes are going up, there was just a Jihadist attack in Alabama. You maybe used to laugh, or at least smile and shake your head, at the folks that espouse preparedness but maybe you want to look at this subject again.

It's not just this kind of stuff either, have you checked the batteries in all your flashlights and smoke detectors? Have you tested your weather alert radio? Is your storm shelter up to snuff? Do you have 3 days worth of basic survival supplies on hand in case of a tornado or a flood or a hurricane?

Too many people focus on that thing called TEOTWAWKI, but what about a short term disruption in normal life? Are you ready?
