“Gun Death” More Freak Trees

So sad!

Authorities in Pennsylvania had identified the two young sisters who died in a freak accident after a falling tree landed on their moving car on Monday.

…Investigators said that two young girls died of blunt force trauma to the head and witnesses to the harrowing crash recounted how their eight-month pregnant mother, Ashley Lichty, 26, burst out of the passenger side of the car after the accident screaming, ‘My babies, my babies.’

Horrible! Of all cars to be crushed by a falling tree, it had to be the one with the pregnant mother and filled with kids!

A massive branch fell off the tree in front of my neighbor’s house in a thunderstorm. It blocked the road, and probably would have crushed any tree under it. It was a weak and heavy branch, soaked with rain and what tipped the tree over? A squirrel!

That was all it took. Thankfully for that incident nobody was hurt, but in this case, they were not as lucky.

My heart goes out to the family, and I wish them a speedy recovery from both their injuries and their horrible grief.

“Gun Death” Cars Again!

This time a baby is dead!

Arlington police are investigating the death of an 8-month-old baby boy in a stroller who was killed Thursday morning in a two-car crash.

The crash happened around 9:30 a.m. at the intersection of South Cooper Street and California Lane when a car and pickup truck collided.

Police say the pickup truck was heading southbound on South Cooper when it struck Daniel Bingenheimer, who was pushing his son, David, in a stroller and waiting to cross the intersection. The car involved was going northbound on South Cooper Street and trying to make a left on California Lane when the crash took place.

No call to ban cars, because “Progressives” who obsess about “Gun Death” need cars to drive around!

Listen to Aunt Joan!

Joan is giving us all some advice to adhere to!

The first question is why must people carry guns around wherever they go? They are obviously inconvenient when trying on clothes, going to the bathroom, sitting down to eat, packing for trips, while sitting in cars, and all of the other stupid and dangerous incidents I write about.

See? Just don’t carry those guns! It’s TOO DIFFICULT!!! Just don’t bother!

You know what else sucks? Seat Belts! They’re too much work, just don’t wear them! Also when you come to a red light or a stop sign just blow through it! Your time is valuable, don’t waste it waiting in traffic! Plus when you’re idling you’re killing mother earth with your car exhaust!

Oh and Condoms suck! Just don’t wear them, it isn’t worth it!

Now I can’t admonish Joan too much, she’s griping about some idiot leaving a S&W642 on top of the TP holder in a public bathroom! Seriously people! I carried a 642 for years, and now still occasionally carry my Ruger LCR .357, but I keep them in my pocket where it really doesn’t interfere even when I’m doing a sit-down operation in the public latrine. Still these guns are small and light, and I don’t see them as being much of an issue even if you carry it on a belt holster.

You need to think of all you are going to do while carrying when you pick your carry rig. It’s been a while since I’ve carried my 1911 because the days when I can carry I spend a good bit of time crawling on the floor after my daughter. This can lead to a gun jammed into your ribs if you have a shoulder holster, so instead I make a small sacrifice and carry a pocket gun.

Still that’s one reason why I love pocket and shoulder carry. It doesn’t matter where your pants are, the gun is still concealed. When I go to my Doctor’s I pocket carry. When it’s time to be examined I simply drop my pants to the floor and put them with my other belonging where I can see them and have control over them. No awkward conversations, no safety issues. I do weigh a few pounds heavier on the scale, but it’s a small price to pay for safety.

For those of you who do the larger guns on the belt, here’s a great video!

Joan and I agree that taking your gun off when you use the bathroom is stupid and dangerous. Her solution is to ban guns, and make carry illegal, my solution is more training and education.

Which is “Common Sense” to you?

More TSA Stupidity

Can we just fire them all, already?

Security workers at Orlando International Airport are being shown the District of Columbia driver’s license after one agent’s apparent confusion over its validity.

Cox Media Group television reporter Justin Gray was heading back to D.C. over the weekend when, he says, a Transportation Security Administration agent didn’t recognize his license.

The TSA agent asked for a passport, but Gray wasn’t carrying one. He said that after further back-and-forth, he realized the agent was not aware what the District of Columbia was.

Of course this little incident shouldn’t cloud the success rate of the TSA! They have stopped QUADRILLIONS of Terrorists and saved the entire global population 17 times over.

Oh wait we just pay them to sexually assault us and steal our stuff….

Disband the TSA YESTERDAY!

A Different Kind of Chipotle Open Carry

Heh

- A couple engaged in sex on the roof of a Newark restaurant Saturday night were arrested when an officer interrupted them, police said Monday.

Michael Suh, 38, of the 100 block of East Main Street, and Nicole Germack, 27, of the 100 block of Tyre Avenue, each were charged with indecent exposure, lewdness, loitering, resisting arrest and conspiracy, Cpl. James Spadola said.

Officers received several reports about 9:40 p.m. Saturday about two people having sex on the roof above Chipotle restaurant in the 100 block of East Main Street.

According to published reports, a man of that name resides above the restaurant and owns Mizu Sushi in that building.

When an officer arrived, he saw the pair engaging in sexual intercourse on the roof at the front of the building, Spadola said.

“The female was wearing a black dress that was pulled up,” he said, adding that he didn’t have any information on what the man was wearing.

The officer ordered the couple to stop, but they continued for nearly 20 seconds before disengaging, Spadola said.

When they were told they were being arrested, the couple ran to Suh’s apartment nearby where officers found them and placed them under arrest.

Well then there’s that!

The Dream

Been a little while since the “The Dream” popped up.

I was at my parent’s house alone with the baby. I had just put her down for a nap and thankfully she dropped right off without a fuss. I started hearing somebody rattling the front door handle. Odd but I didn’t think much of it until I heard it again…and again.

Odd dream event #1: I wasn’t carrying. I was fully dressed, it was the middle of the day, I was watching the baby, and I was in Maine, by all means I would normally have a gun on me.

Odd Dream Event #2: What I did have was this interesting little travel safe that seemed to be a massive combination of lots of features of several safes I’ve seen. Since it was “dream Me’s” Safe I opened it without incident, tho it felt like ages (really ironic when you have time dilation in a dream which is time dilation in itself!) but inside looked like the pistol case at the gun shop. LOTS of different pistols, none of them mine (Well except they were in “MY Safe” which I don’t really own) and all of them were as far as I could tell new and unfired.

I grabbed an XDm 45 and a spare magazine…except the spare was empty (who packed this damn safe?) so I grabbed a funky Colt CCO-style 1911 that was stainless with OD Green grips and stuffed THAT in my pocket.

I then started toward the front door and found that it was open when it should have been closed and locked. Whoever was rattling the lock had gotten in. I couldn’t see or hear anything so I retreated back to where the baby was sleeping. My folks live in a small house so if this dude was still in the house I knew he didn’t get past me, and if he got closer to me and the baby the muzzle of this big plastic .45 would be between us.

Then I saw him, oddly he had gone right back out the side door and was mucking around on the porch. The sun was just right that there were lots of shadows in the house but the porch had full sun, so I crouched behind a table (not great cover or concealment, but it had a tablecloth so it would give me a slight advantage in case he came in). I got a few glimpses of him as he rummaged around. Was a white male, slight build with shoulder length hair. He was just about to open the door back in when he gave that universal look of “I forgot something” and disappeared again.

Then I woke up.

Now here’s where my mind made it so I couldn’t get back to sleep. Odd dream event #3: I never checked the status of either of those strange guns. The spare magazine for the XD was empty, and there was a mag in both of those guns but I never checked either of them to see if they were loaded or did a press check on the chamber. Stranger yet, I couldn’t even tell you the condition of the 1911′s hammer. Had I stuffed a loaded 1911 with the hammer back into an empty pocket????

Seriously these are things I do to a fault! If I’m pocket carrying and decide to change from shorts to long pants or vise-versa, I’ll pull the pocket holster and gun out of my pants and set it down someplace I can see. I’ll change my pants, and before I put the gun back on I’ll drop the mag and check the chamber. Are there magic Gnomes that might sneak into the room and steal all the cartridges out of my gun without me even noticing? NO! But it takes a half-second to check for a loaded mag and a loaded chamber. Moreover, to stuff a single-action gun into a pocket without a holster and without at least making sure the chamber was empty or the hammer was on half-cock (not that I’d ever use half-cock on a 1911, especially this one which had all the modern appointments including a high-rise beavertail) just seems to scream that I hate my right femoral artery!

Also given that I’m not terribly familiar with the XD platform, while in real life the guns have an LCI and a cocking indicator, I didn’t notice either of those (hey I don’t even know if the hammer was back on that little 1911!)

Yeah my adrenaline was up when I woke up, but it only got worse when I thought that I might have been confronting an intruder with two empty guns.

“Gun Death” More Cars

Remember guns are NOTHING like cars!

A young couple has been killed by a car that collided with another vehicle before flipping over and hitting them as they took a romantic stroll on Saturday evening.

No word why the cars struck so violently, but even if it was a simple accident, this isn’t a “Gun Death” so why concern yourself! I mean people NEED cars!

Don’t Get It

I’m kinda a due-diligence gunnie. Most of the guns I own I’ve wanted for YEARS, or at least MONTHS of intense obsessing. One example is my CZ-52, a gun I rarely shoot, but because of the cartridge it shoots and it’s interesting history and mechanical action, as much as I don’t like this gun, I really do like it, and I won’t be selling it. A better example of a gun I knew I’d love is the Beretta 21A. I handled my friend’s in .25 ACP, and I was impressed, but I prefer a gun in .22 LR over .25, and doing a bunch of obsessive reading, a few months later when one showed up in my local shop I bought it, and it is one of my favorite guns.

With holsters I’m the same way. When I was waiting for years before I could get my carry permit I had plenty of time to think about how to hide a gun, and what worked best for me. I settled on pocket carry and shoulder carry, and SURPRISE I was right. The holsters that make up my Box of Holsters (TM) are the ones I’ve acquired for no cost over the years.

There is ONE gun I regret buying over the years, and it was my WASR-10, great gun, and the new owner is 100% happy with it, but it just wasn’t for me. I sold it and used the money to help buy an FAL which is the gun I should have bought in the first place.

This is all a round-about way of wondering why one would SELL a gun, then buy the same, or similar gun again. I’ll never buy another AK again. There are better examples of the Kalashnikov design, but in the end it just isn’t for me.

Have any of you done this? Maybe I just don’t have that impulsive gene. I mean I shot my first 1911 in 1999, and I’ve been obsessed with them every since, and still to this day a 1911 in .45 ACP is my favorite gun to shoot.

Same with the FAL, been in love with them for years, and while the SCAR 17 is a really cool gun, the FAL is still a favorite.

What say y’all
