    Daley Disintegrating Into Lunacy-14


    Windy City's windbag mayor to circumvent Supreme Court when it rules Chicago's gun ban is unconstitutional.

    Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley is rapidly disintegrating into spiteful tyrant.    

    Confronted with the dawning reality that the Supreme Court will soon issue a decision that will make his city's gun ban unconstitutional, the Windy City's windbag mayor plans to circumvent the ruling and continue to allow only criminals to have weapons in Chicago.

    Shooting Feral Cats-27


    In many rural areas shooting feral cats is pretty standard procedure—though if you mention this to gentile suburbanites or hip urban-dwellers don’t be surprised when one of them drops their chocolate martini* and faints from shock.

    For people who pay attention to nature, the devastation feral cats cause among birds and other wildlife is no secret and the only reasonable way to control their numbers is by removing them from the population. (Should you decide to get serious about this work, I suggest you go out right now and get yourself a .220 Swift.) Not that other methods haven’t been tried or advocated.

    Criminalizing the Bill of Rights-10


    Debate over California bill outlawing open-carry of unloaded handguns has national implications.

    There is an interesting debate with national implications under way in California. The state's Assembly will soon ponder AB1934, a bill that could make it a crime to openly carry an unloaded handgun anywhere.

    This bill is a direct response to the growing, nationwide open-carry movement. And it is a classic tactic used by anti-Second Amendment fascists – criminalize the Bill of Rights.

    Elena Et Al-19


    Last week's initial surge in discussion about Elana Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court primarily focused on how little is known about a lifelong attorney who could become the nation's most pivotal justice for the rest of her life.

    What has followed in the wake of President's Barack Obama's May 10 Kagan nomination is speculation about how, among other things, her longstanding friendship with Obama influenced the selection.

    Gold-plated AK-47 (And Other Examples of Bespoke Taste in Narco-Guns)-7


    Actually, the very shiny gun here is an AKS-74U, from what I can tell—though slightly modified from the original design that was supposed to propel the people’s revolution to global victory during the Cold War.

    My favorite touch is the jewelling on the bolt carrier. It’s as if whatever poor gunsmith was tasked with creating this monstrosity were actually interested in trying to make something beautiful for Tony Montana Jr., or whoever it was who commissioned the work.

    My Favorite Gun Case-9


    I take guns on the road with me nearly every time I travel. Usually that means I’m hauling a bulky rifle case that weighs as much as Barney Frank. One of the many reasons I love hunting with handguns is that I get to pack my firearm in a case like this. This little unit from Storm—it is the iM2050 model—can hold a large framed 1911 or a revolver like my Smith and Wesson M29 .44 Mag. Mountain Gun with a 4-inch barrel and a couple magazines or speedloaders.

    Mayor Mc-Cheese-5



    Once again, it didn't take New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg long to exploit a failed terrorist attack to advance his own agenda. 

    Hizzoner was in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, May 5, lobbying Congress to adopt the “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009” -- H.R. 2159 -- sponsored by Rep. Peter King (R-NY) and -- S. 1317 -- sponsored by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ).
