Gun Thread (2-23-2014)

Happy 5.56mm day

Retired Liberal Wishcasts A New Constitution

I presume John Paul Stevens doesn't see a need to revisit lifetime judicial appointments, but he'd like to tweak the 2nd Amendment a bit. His version would read:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.

I'm sure the left is oohing and ahhing over this, but Stevens' suggestion is pretty funny when you bump it up against the existing U.S. code.

(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.

(b) The classes of the militia are—
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

Looks like John Paul Stevens wants to disarm women who aren't in the National Guard, transgendered folk and oldsters to me. Teh H8R!!

Now about that lifetime appointment ...

Detective that claimed “we don’t have time for this” before killing 90-pound teen is indicted for voluntary manslaughter

These judge+jury+executioner incidents seem to be happening more often these days, but the cops always seem to get away with little or no punishment. There appears to be at least a slim chance for justice in this case.

Gun Of The Week - Answer

That's the Bren Ten, the gun the 10mm Auto cartridge was designed for. Its claim to fame was being the sidearm of Miami Vice's Sonny Crockett and was a hot commodity in the mid-1980s. I had one on order myself, but the company folded before it was delivered. Its return to production has long been rumored, but I'll believe it when I see it.
