Turns out the shooter in Virginia was a straight white guy hell-bent on starting a race war because of the riots in Ferguson. Wait, no, that’s not what I meant. He was a gay black man who wanted to start a race war because of the shooting in Charleston. “What sent me over the top • Read More »

“With national governments in collapse at the end of the XXth century, something had to fill the vacuum, and in many cases it was the returned veterans. They had lost a war, most of them had no jobs, many were sore as could be over the terms of the Treaty of New Delhi, especially the • Read More »

Mumbai: An attack by militant Islamists shooting randomly into crowds kills dozens and injures hundreds. Military and police forces were almost powerless to stop the rampage. Oklahoma City: A convert to radical Islam beheads one coworker and attempts to kill others, but he’s stopped by a good guy with a gun. Nairobi: Radical Islamic terrorists • Read More »

Daily Carry.

When I had my little misadventure last month, I was in the midst of testing out gear for a daily carry messenger bag to have near me no matter what. Something as simple as always having a ready and available source of water makes a big difference on a 2 hour road trip, and the • Read More »

How to fix the mess in Ferguson

August 14, 2014 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on How to fix the mess in Ferguson | Filed in: Crime, Current Events, Guns, History, Kevin, Military, politcs, Politics.

Think that dealing with a heavily-armed police force is something that’s happened only in a world of M4’s and MRAP’s?  Think again.  The English dealt with this same issue almost 200 years ago, and Sir Robert Peel laid out nine rules to help society and an armed law enforcement play nice together.  To prevent crime • Read More »

Ten new gun bills in the Arizona Legislature

January 24, 2014 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Ten new gun bills in the Arizona Legislature | Filed in: Arizona, Crime, Culture, Democrats, Guns, Kevin, Law, politcs, Politics.

There’s a lot of variety in these new bills: Some of them appear to advance gun rights in Arizona, some don’t really affect the status quo in any meaningful way, and some try to repeal the gains that gun rights have made in the past few years. Senate Bill 1063: Allows people to carry guns in • Read More »

Why are Canadian Environmental Protestors So Violent?

Man, if you think Canadians get upset over hockey, you haven’t seen them get upset over potentially making a ton of money from oil drilling.  They’re NOT protesting that they want money. They’re protesting that they’ll be making money.  No, I don’t get that either.  Dozens of shale gas protesters cut down trees and blocked • Read More »

What happens when you don’t get what you were (falsely) promised?

What happens when a man who promised to “fundamentally transform” America succeeds in only making things WORSE for a key group of supporters? What happens when a group of people who’ve been told their whole lives that they’re victims and that someone else is to blame for their troubles decides to punish their (alleged) persecutors?  Jack • Read More »

The sad legacy of the Navy Yard Shooting

September 19, 2013 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on The sad legacy of the Navy Yard Shooting | Filed in: Crime, Current Events, GOP, Guns, Kevin, Military, War On Terror.

Allen West is 100% correct here: We’ve just sent out a message to terrorists around the world that if they want to kill American servicemen, the place to do it isn’t Kandahar, it’s Kansas.  Real lesson of #NavyYardShooting is we've turned military installations into gun-free free-fire zones for attackers. Our enemies r watching. — Allen • Read More »

Remember earlier this year, when ammo couldn’t be found, and people were wondering why the Department of Homeland Security was buying millions and millions of rounds? The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reserves the right to buy up to 750 million rounds of ammunition over the next five years and currently has “two years worth” • Read More »

First, his ban on (some) sugary drinks was given an EPIC beatdown in New York State Court. Then, he financed Illegal Mayors Against Guns, which managed to change the gun laws of Colorado, but at a high cost for the legislators who backed his wackobird ideas.  Now, his policy of stopping and frisking minority yutes • Read More »

I hear a lot of grumblings these days from right-wing pundits about the militarization of the police, decrying the apparent need to roll out in full battle-rattle for every traffic citation.  Those same people turn around and applaud Sheriff Joe giving AR-15’s to his officers and mandating they have them with them on and off-duty.  • Read More »

Some interesting tidbits here. Normally, I’d say let’s wait for more info, but given the 2nd most dangerous place to be in Washington is between the President and a celebrity appearance (the first is, of course, to be between him and a tee time), it only makes sense that Obama would outsource managing the security • Read More »

When will Arizona’s mayors follow after their colleagues in other states? New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control group Mayors Against Illegal Guns is finding it hard to keep its membership up, thanks to dozens of resignations and lost elections over the last few months. Worse for Bloomberg, who has become one of the faces • Read More »

Earlier this year, I wrote,  If a politician, ANY politician, isn’t comfortable with you taking charge of defending your life, they’re not comfortable with you taking charge of your health care or your retirement or children’s education. If politicians want to be in charge of decided when and how you can keep yourself alive, they’ll • Read More »

Why not treat Detroit like the failed Third World dictatorship it really is?

Let’s do the rundown, shall we?  Single-party rule? Check.  Endemic corruption? Check.  Civil unrest and breakdown of public safety? Check.  Massive debt? Check, check and triple check. Failed attempts to revitalize the economy with massive government infrastructure?

Let’s review: Angela Corey was the prosecutor in Zimmeran case, who concealed evidence from the defense and has a long and inglorious history of overcharging and using her office as a political weapon. Lois Lerner was the head of the IRS’s non-profit division, piled regulation and regulation on top of conservative and “Tea Party” groups, • Read More »
