Beautiful Spring Day!
Going to try and get in some road biking today! Also want to finish stitching my second Schofield revolver holster. I can use the 2 holsters on an old Kirkpatrick Leather money belt I haven't used in a while, but I have also cut the leather for a matching belt for the holsters. I ordered some unique conchos for the belt yesterday!
SayUncle notes that the Freedom Group has taken the preliminary steps with the SEC to go public. This is something we've all been predicting for a long while. When you start aggregating companies the way Cerberus has been doing over the last few years one of the few plays that made sense was rolling out a big public company.
The bloggers did an excellent job of covering the NRA Convention...be sure to check out Uncle, Caleb at Gun Nuts Media, my pal Joe "Boomershoot" Huffman, the Breda Fallacy (thanks for the dinner invite, Breda!) and follow their links.
I also note that the titular leader of the failed narco-state immediately to our south, a.k.a. Mexico, yesterday called on the U.S. Congress to reinstate the assault weapons ban. The best response to that pathetic leader's pathetic whining came from Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who said, "The Second Amendment is not a subject open for diplomatic negotiation with Mexico or any other nation.”
