Folks, We Don't Have the Votes.

Yet again the Court dodges the question of clarifying Heller. My interpretation is that we do not have 5 Justices willing to write an opinion clarifying that legislative firearms' restrictions will be analyzed through the lens of strict scrutiny. Sad. In fact, the opposite might be the case--there a...

Re: GA: "Jogger" chased and murdered

There is still quite a bit we do not know about this case. I assume the McMichaels gave detailed statements about the shots, where they and Arbery were located, what was going through their mind, what Arbery was doing, etc. All of that will be in the offense report that the police have not released....

Re: Ethanol free

Ethanol-free gas is the only gas I run in my three lawnmowers. Good stuff. Several lawn-mower mechanics recommend it too, especially if your lawn-mowers "sit" over the winter. They start right back up in the Spring when I leave ethanol-free gas in them over the winter. Not so much with ethanol gas--...

Re: GA: "Jogger" chased and murdered

Those guys should have been released on bail. They have not even been indicted and one D.A. looked at the case and refused to file charges.
I guess they cannot afford a good lawyer to file the necessary paperwork to get em out.

Re: Stimulus checks

I finally got through the "Get My Payment" site and entered my info this past week. IRS said they would direct deposit my stimulus money into my bank account and let me know when they did it. Sounded good. The next day I checked again and the site said they will mail my check on Friday, May 15'th. O...

Re: AC repair shock! There goes any stimulus check I may get.

Another 100 degree day in my part of west Texas. Ugh. Glad my AC works. My AC guy says most of the filters on the market will not prevent cat hair from clogging up condensers. Do I have to get rid of my cats? Several AC guys have told me there is "old" freon which is much more efficient and "new" f...

Re: Supremes Say NYC Gun Law is Moot

I think the "mootness" issue was simply an excuse to allow them to kick the can down the road. Too bad. They know at some point they will have to clarify Heller (rational basis, intermediate scrutiny, or strict scrutiny?) Maybe that California case on ammo restrictions will get to the Scotus some da...

Re: First Rattler of the Season

I snapped its rattles off yesterday and took a pic. I checked this morning and the raccoons had hauled its carcass off. Darn raccoons are good for something! Counted 11 rattles and a button.

First Rattler of the Season

So, a couple of hours ago I opened my garage door leading to my cement driveway to carry some trash out. I always look when I do that--and sure enough---there was a 4 foot diamond-back rattler stretched out on the driveway about six feet away ( a bad shot). I grabbed my .410 Taurus long gun/shotgun ...

Situational Awareness--Not Always Easy

So, today I was walking through the doors at the entrance to the Walmart and into the store when I turned my head to the right and behind me to talk to another old geezer. About that time I heard somebody say, "He is going real fast!" I turned my head back to the left and did not see anything. Someb...

What Joe Biden Thinks About Guns

From his own website:

Scary.

Many of us are not "one-issue" voters but you should think about what he is trying to do when you go to vote this November.

Re: Ballistol--Yellowish Paste?

I have never had a problem with Ballistol in the aerosol cans either. I wonder if I applied Ballistol in a needle-oiler to the hammer and trigger pins of my AR15 if that would cause them to gum up over time? I don't think I will try that experiment. I can reach those components using Ballistol's aer...
