So as for our new President, I really could care less. There are silver linings to Trump’s election, but I’ll probably save that for The Squirrel Report.
Still there IS cool news, Massachusetts has chosen to end the war on drugs, at least as far as pot goes.
Also Michael Bloomberg attempted to buy Maine and Nevada pushing background check referendums. Maine rejected Bloomberg, and showed him that no matter how much money you spend in a VERY small state, the American People can’t be bought!
Nevada unfortunately will now have Universal Background Checks, but that only passed by a margin of just over 10,000 votes!
This election will be getting Mikey to do a Cost benefit analysis!
I’ll leave you with this, I saw this ad just before I went and voted….
The Home Alone drop is a parody, but the ad was JUST that insane!
With everyone “On Assignment” this week, Erin and Sean have created a fun-sized episode about why you should join the gun community and go to events. We’re a unique, welcoming bunch, and it’s given us so much that we want to share it with you. So get involved just by showing up and having fun!
So why is it that women can’t just carry guns in their pockets? Beth gives tells us the story of a “helpful” male trainer who didn’t stop to think that maybe he wasn’t as helpful as he thought he was.
What kind of person tries to kill a cop with a stolen car? Sean takes a look.
THE INTERNET IS DOWN! THE INTERNET IS DOWN! …well, maybe not. Barron explains how a botnet made it impossible for many to access the websites they needed most.
In the Main Topic, Sean and Erin take a look at that very interesting question: How many guns are really in America?
Sometimes a story is so big that Tiffany can’t cover it in only one show. She jumps back to the ‘Good Samaritan’ story to talk about how a reliably anti-gun journalist had a decidedly non-typical response.
When your survival is on the line, the people you surround yourself with can make the difference between life and death. How well do you know them? Erin tells us that now is the time to get to know them well.
Either Maura Healey just can’t seem to see reason, or she just loves to see herself getting the Patented Weer’d Audio Fisk™ treatment. This time she’s on Boston Public Radio.
Beth talks about teaching firearms classes for women, what she gets out of it, and why women come to her classes.
Sean takes a closer look at the killer in a murder-suicide at Forsyth County Medical Center.
Barron is back from his epic family vacation across the West. What tech tools did he use to make his trip easier?
In the Main Topic, Sean and Erin discuss the intersection of depression and gun ownership, and why the “No guns for the mentally ill” argument can be used against non-crazy gun owners who just need to see a doctor now and then.
Hurricane Tiffany is back home after a whirlwind tour of New York City and San Antonio, Texas. Strap in as she tells you of her amazing adventures being our best ambassador EVAR!
Are you feeling SAD? Does less light in the winter months cause you Seasonal Affective Disorder? Erin talks about what you can do to fix it.
It appears that Dan Savage likes getting smacked around by Weer’d. He’s back for another Patented Weer’d Audio Fisk™.
Our plug of the week the NSSF’s website WhereToHunt.org
James O’Keefe exposes EXACTLY why Democrats are so opposed to Voter ID laws.
Back when I was a kid I had a friend who’s family didn’t own a TV set, I also knew a kid who’s family didn’t have a telephone in their house.
Today my 90 year old Grandmother has gone her entire life (and likely WILL go her entire life) without owning a cellphone or a personal computer of any sort.
Now I say those things to point out there are social oddities. There are exceptions, but only a few, of people in society who don’t own a television set, don’t have a cell phone, and who don’t have a personal computer of any sort (including smartphones and tablets); but these are oddities.
Hell I have a relative who works in a state welfare office, they deal with HOMELESS people, and they have smartphones. Some of them are so destitute that they don’t have a service or data package, but they still pull them out when they can get free wi-fi to play games and go online!
Even all of these common household items are rare compared to a state issued ID. Those welfare people? They have to show ID to collect. You need an ID to drive a car, you need an ID to board a plane, you need an ID to board Amtrak or interstate bus services. You can’t rent an apartment, a hotel room, or get a job. You need an ID to buy booze, Tobacco, and in some states marijuana. (Please note that many of the recreational/medical marijuana laws are NEWER than Voter ID, and the same politicians who are arguing AGAINST voter ID laws, are voting for marijuana sales ONLY with a positive government ID!
And because it’s a gun blog I will note that you cannot buy a firearm without a positive photo ID…PERIOD! You of course need ID to fill out a 4473 at a gun shop, but also try doing a private sale ANYWHERE without the other person asking for your ID. It won’t happen, even when ID isn’t stipulated in the law specifically, somebody selling a firearm is beyond stupid to not ask for ID. It’s a federal felony to sell to somebody who is not a resident of your state, and EVERYBODY has a state ID, and they have it with them RIGHT NOW, so why not ask for it.
And lastly, Democrats are the party of subsidies! If you can’t afford medical treatment, the government will pay for it. If you can’t afford a house, the government will pay for it. Now Democrats are talking about footing your college bill. Here if Massachusetts if you were poor the Democrats would give you a fucking CAR!!
There is nothing too extravagant that the Democrats won’t give you for free out of the pockets of people who get off the couch and go to work…..well nothing except a photo ID, and they are ALARMINGLY cheap. In Maine they’re FIVE BUCKS! For that price you just need to have the balls to COMPLAIN that a sawbuck is too steep and I’d give you the damn thing for free out of my pocket! In Massachusetts where EVERYTHING is more expensive….it’s still only $25 bucks, and don’t tell me with a subsidy program the Mass RMV couldn’t waive some of the graft and get it so the state is only paying $5-$10 for it!
No, Democrats oppose Voter ID laws because it gets in the way of them cheating at elections, and they can’t have that!
