“No one makes a big deal of it, but if you’re a fly on the wall in any of their homes — I’ll tell you what: If you track the Confederate Army to the Dixiecrats, to the conversation of the Republicans, to the districts that were affected, you may be dealing with different labels, but if they were ever able to track down their ancestors, there’s a Confederate general in every damn living room."
— Charlie Rangel
So I spent the day looking for the Confederate general in my living room...under the couch, behind the television, in Pokkee-San the Tailless Manx's bowl...nothing...nothing, I tell you. Paging Stonewall Jackson! Where are you, dude?
Today was a bitch, and I didn't expect it to be a bitch. I expected to spend the whole day working on my Ruger SR-762, getting the Giselle 3-Gun trigger in, changing out a couple of other parts. Instead, it turns out that I'm a television producer, which actually requires me to occasionally produce television. Who knew? I also did cleared snow out of the Secret Hidden Bunker's driveway, but that was the fun part.
I'm trying to get the last episode of SHOOTING GALLERY 2014 to miraculously fall into place...it's another one of my nitwit ideas, recreate a scene from one of the greatest "gun movies" of all time, WAY OF THE GUN. I have actors...I have locations...I have guns...hopefully, by tomorrow, I'll have FX. Did you know blanks cost $1.05 apiece? I sincerely hope we can pull this off...it will SO rock!
I'm paying close attention to the savage wave of anti-hunting sentiment that is sweeping the Internet. Given that Matthew Inman is a brain-dead scumbag, it's a little frightening to see the crucifixion
of Melissa Bachman, who in fact has done nothing wrong, illegal or unethical. Indeed, as was the case of Mike Baker with Under Wild Skies. For years, we've said that hunters needed to stand with shooters; ironically, it's time for shooters to stand with hunters. An attack on one is an attack on all. An attack by a piece of crap like Matthew Inman on Melissa Bachman is no different than an attack on the ownership of ARs or .50 BMG Barrett rifles.
And speaking of pieces of crap, as I predicted years ago, the Interior Department is taking steps to force shooters off public land. The greenies in USFS have always had a hard-on against shooters, using whatever lies and misrepresentations they could come up with to shut down recreational shooting. It's going to get much worse...according to U.S. News:
Gun owners who have historically been able to use public lands for target practice would be barred from potentially millions of acres under new rules drafted by the Interior Department, the first major move by the Obama administration to impose limits on firearms.
If the draft policy is finally approved, some public access to Bureau lands to hunters would also be limited, potentially reducing areas deer, elk, and bear hunters can use in the West.
In our brutal battle with USFS' jihad a few years back, I predicted that the fight was a trial run for nationwide rollout. I was, unfortunately, right.
