    More Knife Pics

    The Cold Steel Voyager landed yesterday. A medium-duty blade, that's heavy on performance.

  4. "Hearing Held In Challenge To Virginia’s New Background Check Law" https://bearingarms.com/cam-e/2020/07/03/hearing-challenge-va-background/ "Thursday’s hearing was on a request for an injunction preventing the law from being enforced while it’s challenged. Even if the judge in the case refuses to grant the injunction, the case itself will likely continue. It’s worth pointing out that Judge F. Patrick Yeatts, who presided over Thursday’s hearing, did rule in favor of GOA and VCDL in an earlier challenge to the closure of an indoor range in Lynchburg under Gov. Ralph Northam’s coronavirus executive orders. Yeatts ruled that the governor overstepped his authority in ordering ranges to close, violating Virginia state statute in doing so. Northam didn’t appeal the judge’s decision, and shortly afterwards indoor ranges across the state were allowed to reopen with certain COVID-19 safeguards in place. We’ll soon learn if Yates believes that Northam and Virginia Democrats have similarly overstepped the bounds of the state constitution with their background check law, but regardless of its constitutionality, Attorney General Mark Herring can’t and won’t defend its enforceability. I’ll be shocked if there are even a half-dozen charges for violating the background check law in the next year, because the law is simply nearly impossible to enforce. As I mentioned, background checks are required on all private sales of firearms, but not private transfers. If you want to give your brother a shotgun for Christmas, no background check is needed. If you want to sell him a shotgun, on the other hand, you’re required to go through the background check process. I suspect that anybody who might be facing charges of selling or buying a gun without using a gun store and the NICS system will simply argue that it wasn’t a sale but a transfer. Unless prosecutors can prove that money changed hands, they simply won’t have a case. Even if transfers were included, there’s no centralized registry of who owns what guns in Virginia, so there’s no way to know how many times a firearm might have changed hands once its been sold at retail. At some point, Democrats in the state will introduce a gun registration bill making that very argument, but even if it too passes, good luck trying to enforce compliance."

    It Seems ATF Behind Ghost Gun Hysteria

    https://bearingarms.com/tom-k/2020/07/03/atf-behind-ghost-gun-hysteria/ "The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, also known as the ATF, is not exactly a favorite agency to gun owners. Of course, there’s a lot of reasons why, and not just because they’re in charge of enforcing gun control laws. It’s because they’ve been caught doing some pretty hinky stuff through the years and none of us appreciate it. Their latest escapade may well be in trying to gin up hysteria regarding so-called “ghost guns,” or homemade firearms that are perfectly legal for law-abiding gun owners to build and use. However, these guns ultimately exist outside the ATF’s control, which makes them a problem. Yet for months, we’ve heard over and over that these weapons were a major problem. Over those same months, I’ve been questioning just how big the threat actually was. After all, without numbers from which we can judge things for ourselves, it’s hard to tell what they mean when they say “growing threat” or something similar. I mean, just one of these guns showing up at a crime scene last year but finding two and scenes this year is a 100 percent increase, but it doesn’t really constitute a crisis. On Thursday, though, we got a glimpse at this “crisis”. From what we saw, it’s not. Even the ATF’s numbers aren’t that alarming when you consider the areas involved. And yet, there’s reason to believe the ATF is behind the rhetoric."

Tuscaloosa City Councilor Sonya McKinstry said students hosted the parties to intentionally infect each other with the new coronavirus, news outlets reported. McKinstry said party organizers purposely invited guests who tested positive for COVID-19. She said the students put money in a pot and whoever got COVID first would get the cash…. Tuscaloosa Fire Chief Randy Smith confirmed the incidents to the City Council Tuesday. The department thought the parties were rumors but Smith said after some research, the department found out the parties were real. “We did some research. Not only do the doctors’ offices confirm it but the state confirmed they also had the same information,” Smith said. Smith didn’t say whether actions would be taken against the students. He also didn’t say which schools the students attend."

    Walmart to make 160 store parking lots into drive-in theaters

    I'll skip the 'Wally World Drive-In Theater". You would make way too much of a target of opportunity, and be shot-dead.
  8. https://www.redstate.com/nick-arama/2020/07/03/father-whose-teenaged-son-was-killed-in-seattle-autonomous-zone-gets-surprise-call-from-trump/ "Good for Trump for calling this dad who really needed to know someone in officialdom cared. How kind to reach out to this grief-stricken dad. Trump had been calling for the zone to be shut down from the beginning, knowing it was going to be a problem. Too bad the mayor decided to pander to the leftists and didn’t listen. Even after finally having the police clear the zone, she praised the weeks of “peaceful protest” there. This didn’t need to happen. The mayor, the city and the other folks in the zone owe this father a lot of answers as to why his son is dead."

"Drive-Ins have been a signature program for Tribeca since we started the Tribeca Film Festival 19 years ago after 9/11,” Jane Rosenthal, CEO and co-founder of Tribeca Enterprises and Tribeca Film Festival said in a statement Wednesday. "But now, the Tribeca Drive-In is much more than a fun, retro way to see movies — it’s one of the safest ways for communities to gather. We are thrilled to partner with Walmart to bring more people together around the shared cinematic experiences that Tribeca is known for." The move comes as several summer movies, including the live action "Mulan" and the next James Bond installment, "No Time to Die" have had their release date pushed back due to COVID-19 concerns."
  10. https://www.q13fox.com/news/seattle-city-council-expected-to-pass-largest-tax-on-businesses-in-seattles-history “Right now they are trying to survive rather than expand and make a lot of money,” Eugene Wasserman with the North Seattle Industrial Association said. Wasserman said imposing a new tax right now will have detrimental impacts to jobs and recovery. “There is a real recession here and the council needs to recognize that,” Wasserman said. The majority of Seattle City Council members said the more than $300 million budget shortfall due to COVID-19 is why Teresa Mosqueda’s tax measure should pass. “We know this bill alone will not close the gap that we need,” Mosqueda said. Mosqueda said they can start investing in immediate COVID-19 needs and also earmark funds for housing and homelessness. The money needed immediately will come from the rainy day fund." Once again, the liberal imbeciles are extracting, heavy tribute from the hapless business-owners in Seattle. To assuage their own pro-marxist foolishness, and inane policies.
  11. https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/07/independence-day-and-woke-revolution-bruce-thornton/ "Today, however, the recent shift of the Democrats to their progressives and Marxist wing has put the authority and power of Congressmen, Democrat Party leaders, governors, mayors, city councils, media, corporations, sports teams, and entertainment industries on the side of rioters, vandals, and looters. The outfits behind this disorder, whether the self-proclaimed Marxists of Black Lives Matter, or the juvenile anarchists of Antifa, have with near impunity added widespread violence to illiberal tactics like “cancel culture”: the vandalism of public monuments and proscription of cultural artifacts; and the shaming, silencing, and ostracizing of dissenting voices. The alleged “crisis” of racist police targeting black males for slaughter is in fact a specious pretext for this disorder, a Reichstag Fire for justifying a revolutionary political agenda to “burn down this system and replace it,” as a BLM honcho put it recently. This legitimizing of an illiberal political ideology and violent tactics by civic, business, and cultural leaders now threatens to dismantle the Constitutional order and American civic identity of which American exceptionalism and political freedom are the fruit."

Walz’s office estimates the cost of the damage to more than 1,500 businesses in Minneapolis and St. Paul at over $500 million." "How about: no! Fugg-you too, while your at it!!"
  13. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/protesters-block-mount-rushmore-road-trump-event "One group parked three vans across the road and removed the tires from two of the vehicles to make it more difficult to remove them. Several demonstrators climbed on top of the vans chanting “Land back!” The sheriff’s office said attendees had been told to arrive early and should have been past the roadblock by the time the standoff began. However, the Rapid City Journal reported that some motorists who had tickets for Friday evening's fireworks show were unable to get through the protests and were standing by their cars watching the standoff. The Journal also reported that law enforcement in riot gear as well as members of the National Guard had declared an unlawful assembly."

    Elk Are Now Racist?

    I would love to line-up some these bums, in my sights. To dumb, willfully ignorant, and violent to live.

    Going to National Parks Is Racist, Declares ABC News

    Whenever I see that poor fool shuffle-out on the stage, I'm constantly amazed at the phony hype.
