  1. I’m doubtful of anything ever coming out of such an action myself, particularly in a confrontation with a government entity. I do, however, take satisfaction in making it crystal clear that I am not in agreement with these infringements on my freedom. The likelihood is greatly diminished by the fact that I refuse to go to these places except when forced to!
  2. Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone, Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die, One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
  3. I suspect that he stayed it in anticipation of Bruen. Now he has the ammunition to bury the ban!
  4. email in your browser HELP FUND OUR LEGAL EFFORTS BELLEVUE, WA — The Second Amendment Foundation is cheering Friday’s 71-page ruling by a federal district court judge striking down, for the second time, California’s ban on so-called “high-capacity magazines,” and suggests this will affect similar ban in other states. U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez handed down the 71-page ruling, noting in his decision, “Removable firearm magazines of all sizes are necessary components of semiautomatic firearms. Therefore, magazines come within the text of the constitutional declaration that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Because millions of removable firearm magazines able to hold between 10 and 30 rounds are commonly owned by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes, including self-defense, and because they are reasonably related to service in the militia, the magazines are presumptively within the protection of the Second Amendment. There is no American history or tradition of regulating firearms based on the number of rounds they can shoot, or of regulating the amount of ammunition that can be kept and carried.” “We are delighted with this ruling,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “The decision affects Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s defense against a lawsuit challenging a similar ban in his state, which is also in the Ninth Circuit, as well as bans in other states. Ultimately, we expect this issue will have to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.” As explained by Judge Benitez, “Because the State did not succeed in justifying its sweeping ban and dispossession mandate with a relevantly similar historical analogue, California Penal Code § 32310, as amended by Proposition 63, is hereby declared to be unconstitutional in its entirety and shall be enjoined.” “This is the second time California has tried to defend this ban,” noted SAF Executive Director Adam Kraut, “and the second time Judge Benitez has ruled against the statute. California clearly does not get the message about the Second Amendment.” The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 720,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.
  5. Gorgeous!! But at this time in my life, the ‘41 Willys is probably a better investment!!
  6. Widder! Got yer back, brother! Otherwise we’ll get TW ta’ throw bail fer both of us!! Locally, I won’t carry any more guns that would normally stay in the car and I don’t leave my carry weapon in the car except at greates of need. Even my doctors allow personal carry! I don’t enter places that require that I disarm, voluntarily. I had to go to the courthouse the other day to file some paperwork. I wore a Black Gold Shootout shirt, my NRA ball cap, and my open carry holster, empty, in whilst Schoolmarm sat in the car with my sidearm! Traveling, I have secure storage for spares.
  7. In my younger days, I had the opportunity and privilege of riding with officers and being involved in a high speed chase. It was an experience! The police have numerous tools to deal with high speed pursuit, BUT!! they don’t have ESP or any other precognitive powers. They have procedures and operational guidelines for almost every situation and training that is, in most cases, thorough and ongoing. I got this opportunity because I had, on more than one occasion, successfully evaded pursuing officers, even with their use of radio and helicopter/aircraft both in cars and on a motorcycle. In each of these instances, it was on sparsely populated roads/streets with little or no traffic and no one was injured and no property, except the pride of the officers involved, was damaged. Two things in my favor. One was that I knew many of these officers and my father was one of them, although he was no longer involved in day to day operations. The other was that my only offense was evading pursuit! I got caught a few times when the situation became dangerous enough that I wasn’t willing to risk pushing my own luck or that of those around me, and once when I crashed my vehicle into a rocky ditch. You can’t win ‘em all. On one occasion, the judge fined me heavily and placed me on probation. On another, the Trooper was so impressed that I had terminated the chase on my own when conditions became too dangerous, after easily outrunning him to the point of disappearing, he testified in my defense! These events happened long ago, when the world was a better place. I was lucky! I got that ride because a judge decided that I should see the other side of high speed pursuit! Evading pursuit still happens! All the rules and all the equipment available can’t always prevent it and in today’s world it’s often not worth the risk to chase down the new breed of offender, except where the public would be endangered more by letting that culprit go on. AND NO!! Many of these fools today will NOT slow down or try to blend in because of those very same radios and aerial surveillance platforms. The question remains, who should make the decision and at what point and under what circumstances should that decision be made! In most cases the decision is as likely to be wrong as it is right!
