Gun Thread (4-14-2013)

The NRA 500

Asshat CT Senator Chris Murphy agitated against Fox's broadcasting the NRA 500 from Texas Motor Speedway.

This picture Laura Ingraham tweeted sums up the attitude of the Texan NASCAR fans towards that:

Chris Murphy's referring to the "extreme nature of the NRA" is particularly irritating. I'm the NRA, and I believe the second amendment means what it says. If that makes me an extremist in his eyes, so be it.

Meanwhile Down In Texas

The NRA Annual Meeting will be held in Houston next month, and Governor Perry is inviting gun manufacturers from all over the US to set up shop there.

Davy Crockett clearly had Chris Murphy and people like him in mind when he said, paraphrasing, "you can all go to hell, and I'll go to Texas", and that same spirit is alive and well there today.

Gun Of The Week

(answer below)

Marksmanship Award

Gun Of The Week - Answer

That's the Winchester Model 1912 (or "Model 12") pump shotgun. Over 2 million of them were produced in the 50+ years it was made, and the Model 12 set the standard for all the pump shotguns that followed.

Project Appleseed

Bob Owens frequently mentions Project Appleseed, and it looks like fun. I'm planning to attend one of their MA events soon.

Headline Of The Week

The WaPo really goes out on a limb here: Gun debate in Senate likely to feature amendments to weaken or strengthen laws

All kidding aside, one "weakening" feature they mention ... national CCW reciprocity ... would be a nice condiment for this crap sandwich.

Gun Control In Chicago

The bad guys have no problem getting guns and the good guys are left to fight them off with baseball bats. Well done, leftists.

A shop owner in Logan Square was shot trying to defend his store, fighting off robbers with just a baseball bat.

The good news is that shop owner is in good condition, after as many as nine shots were directed at him.

This is the history of gun control in a nutshell. All it's good for is disarming the law-abiding and making them more vulnerable to criminals.
