I just discovered that Repack Boxes (one of our very generous Writing Contest prize donors) has added several new varieties of die cut cardboard cartridge boxes to their already diverse product line. The new types include: .30-06, .303 British, 7.62x54r, .44 Magnum, 10mm, and 12 Gauge. The new 12 gauge shell box is cleverly designed to fit in a standard M16 30 round magazine pouch. New customers can get a special 15% discount at checkout by using the coupon code “NEW”.

The old saying the cops are 3 minutes away when you need them? They were there, then fled 3 minutes away when the shooting started! – D.F.

HJL’s Comment: An old news clip from the L.A riots, but a good reminder that you are pretty much on your own when things get really bad. Note: This video clip is on Facebook, but no account is needed to view.

  1. Responding to “It’s not elites vs. populists. It’s cities vs. the countryside.” All I can say is “Wow” How many times and different ways can the media say rural American is ignorant, backward, and lesser in all ways than the city population. Every single attribute attributed to rural populations has been put into a negative connotation. Even the fact we are closer to Nature – this is apparently a negative. Once again we are clinging to our guns and religion because apparently we still aren’t as evolved as those enlightened city people. Give me a break.

  2. Responding to the Koreans defending the jewelry shop led me to this Youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26ToSKdfeRY in which the local press was surprised to see a Korean man armed with an Uzi. Their response was, “That sight must concern the police and National Guard.” My response to that was, “They’ve got to be on the scene to be concerned.”
