California and the irrational fear of cosmetically dangerous weapons!

Ironically, this felony arrest for having an evil pistol grip and an even ‘eviler’ flash hider took place on the eve of Memorial Day. The very holiday where we take time to celebrate and reflect on the sacrifices of over 1.5 million Americans who died defending the rights and freedoms that you can be arrested for enjoying in California.

Bravo coppers…

Your citizens will now sleep safe, knowing that while you’re confiscating scary weapons with non-lethal features, their children only have to worry about wading through ankle deep mounds of human feces, lines of homeless tent cities, and discarded needles to get to their plastic straw free school zones in your fine, upstanding state.

By the way, I got curious as to what CA’s Law Enforcement Code of Ethics is. It seems pretty standard, but obviously meaningless for those who are sworn to uphold it. .

Code of Ethics

AS A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation, and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the Constitutional rights of all men to liberty, equality and justice.

Well….

You’re doing a terrible job at fulfilling your oath, but a terrific job at supporting the tyranny of your elected officials.

Congratulations, you fearsome law dogs.

On the subject of my book. I’ve been contacted by a small publisher. It was rather ego-flattering, except after digging in a bit more into the books they’d published I was pretty let down.

The reviews for their books appeared good, at first. Then I noticed they were 5 star reviews from the exact same four people, and the other reviews were either sketchy, or brutal in bashing the story and editing.

So, on we go down the long path to publishing.

My current plans are to give traditional publishing a solid year in hopes of getting on somewhere good. (Looking at YOU Baen!) In the meantime, I’m going to keep writing the sequel, and outlining the next few books… as well as passing my current novel around to anyone interested. The more feedback the merrier, and I didn’t write this just to keep it all to myself.

(If you’re interested, here’s the link to the first four ‘chunks’: RAWR! Pew! Pew! Pew!)

Anyways.

Freedom ain’t free. And California will probably never be.

That’s not an earthquake you’re feeling…

It’s the rumbling of tens of thousands of standard capacity magazines rushing across the border into California by the dump truck load.

After NINETEEN YEARS, the ten round magazine limit has been overturned. Californians who own guns (Seriously – WHY do you live there?), can now own standard capacity magazines again. Praise Jesus and Buy Cheap/Stack Deep!

(I think Magpul just hit their sales goals for the year this week alone.)

If you haven’t read the court order – it’s one of the most savage things I’ve read. The  order ends with this:

“This decision is a freedom calculus decided long ago by Colonists who cherished individual freedom more than subservient security of a British ruler. The freedom they fought for was not free of cost then, and it is not free now.”

Honorable Judge Benitiz. 3/29/19.

** The Democrats of California are fighting back though. There is a ‘STAY’ injuction on the overturning of the ban. As of today, April 5th at 5PM – The ban goes back into effect. Anything purchased prior is grandfathered in, even if it hasn’t been delivered yet.**

Shaun King’s a tool, Candace Owens Rocks.

I’m trying to spend less time on Facebook these days. Because it’s a colossal time suck of stupidity. I can’t count how many times I’ve posted something political in nature, and minutes later thought, “Naw, screw it.” Then deleted the post because I don’t feel like arguing about it. As the saying goes, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make them drink.

But occasionally I come across something worth tossing my two cents at.

Behold, Shaun King, douche-nozzel extraordinaire!

A quick google searched proved that there was a lot of news on these two officers, and it proves what should be obvious, Shaun King is a racial tension flaming butthole who is trying to make this political.

Both officers were shot with FIVE other officers of differing races. And they weren’t selectively shot and killed because they were black, they were shot because the perp was a hell-bound creep who sexually assaulted foster children and didn’t want to go to jail.

Race doesn’t mean anything in this example. Shaun King is taking their sacrifice and abusing it by turning it political. Screw that guy.

As for the War On Police, it’s not just about police being killed in the line of duty. It’s about the lack of political support of officials who will automatically assume an officer is guilty because of the color of his skin without due process or even knowing the most basic of the facts. They’ll destroy a officer’s career while spreading misinformation, flame tensions into riots and protests to destroy peoples homes, businesses, and harm each other, all because it helps their career or re-election.

THOSE people have a common political affiliation. And it ain’t Republican.

In other news, I’ve recently been watching the greatness of Candace Owens. She’s a smart cookie and don’t take no crap from stupid folk. This video is fantastic, and the wild-eyed white lunatic reminds me of ‘Jamm’ from Parks and Rec.

In other… other news, this is groovy:

Bullet-scarred Bible saved the life of a WWI soldier. 

The Bible belonged to Private Leslie Friston, a nurse with the Royal Army Medical Corps, Sky News reports. Blinded and suffering from respiratory problems following a gas attack in 1917, the then 23-year-old soldier was recovering in a makeshift hospital bed when a German plane machine-gunned the building. The bullets passed through the building’s tin roof and two hit his Bible, which was on Friston’s bedside table.
