June 21, 2017 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on How easy is it to buy a gun online? | Filed in: Guns, Kevin.

Well, it depends on what online gun store you use and what you’re looking for. First off, let’s dispense with the myth that buying a gun online means you don’t have go through a background check. Wrong. Every new gun you buy online, every single one of them, has to be shipped to a dealer • Read More »

Jon, Todd, Steve and myself started Exurban League ten years ago today. What a long, strange trip it’s been. I live in Florida now, and this blog is pretty much shut down. Todd and Steve don’t blog (never really did, to be honest), I’m writing over on my gun blog and a bunch of other • Read More »

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.

Four guys were hanging around a coffee shop on a Saturday morning in 2006, solving all the world’s problems in just a few hours. We’d known each other from college, and all of us shared a passion for technology, Christ, our families, and our country. Oh, and Salma Hayek. Her too. We decided to start • Read More »

This day, we fight.

Hold your ground! Hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers, I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. • Read More »

Todos ellos se parecen a él

Apparently, Donald Trump doesn’t know a whole lot about foreign policy. I, for one, am shocked that a narcissistic Manhattan real estate mogul can’t be bothered to learn the very basics of the world outside of the Five Boroughs before running for President. Or, you know, not. HH: All right, last question, I want to • Read More »

Is this a head desk or a face palm

Or maybe both? Left-leaning “news explanation” site Vox has trouble differentiating between the National Rifle Association, the largest firearms safety training organization in the world, and the National Recovery Act, a ruthless system of wage and price controls created to help introduce socialism into the U.S. Note to Vox: Guns and butter is just a • Read More »

Well there goes the narrative

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 »

There’s a new report out from a former F-35 test pilot, blasting the military’s latest and “greatest” jet fighter’s ability to do, well, anything. The F-35 jockey tried to target the F-16 with the stealth jet’s 25-millimeter cannon, but the smaller F-16 easily dodged. “Instead of catching the bandit off-guard by rapidly pull aft to • Read More »

Another “Mohammed Cartoon Festival” is in the works, this time in Phoenix, Arizona. Unlike the last one, which was held on the property belonging to a Texas educational institute and therefore “gun-free,” (funny how the jihadists didn’t get that message…), the organizers of this festival are encouraging participants to come armed.

I wholeheartedly endorse everything Frank J. Fleming talks about in this article, 5 Rules for Victory in the Culture War. I watched “Christian culture go from something that was *almost* accepted by the mainstream (The Jesus Freak movement) into something that is openly derided and mocked by the trendsetters and culture mavens of our society.

A Tea Party Wedge into Silicon Valley?

Kudos to Orrin Hatch for taking the message of free markets to those who thought that Obama was pro-free enterprise and are now jaded enough to try something new, like freedom. Small to mid-size companies are attractive targets to patent trolls because they don’t have the resources to defend themselves in court. And no fledgling • Read More »

Just about a year ago, the Nigerian Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapped, raped and sold into slavery an entire school of 12-15 year old girls, due in large part to their Christian faith. The reaction from the Obama administration was swift and self-righteous: It immediately asked millions of Twitter users to express their outrage • Read More »

Michael Bane went off on Obama/Holder/Sharpton/et al’s current machinations to re-make America in their own image, and I chimed in.

Another tradition soon to be lost

December 3, 2014 | By exurbankevin | 1 Comment | Filed in: Democrats, Kevin, Law, politcs, Politics.

It is traditional for ex-Presidents to stay out of the spotlight after their term(s) in office are over and let the next President have his/her shot at things without someone second-guessing their decisions. Does anyone REALLY think that our current Narcissist-In-Chief will follow that tradition, rather than jump into the spotlight and try to make • Read More »
