G.G. sent this gem: Fusion center director: We don’t spy on Americans, just anti-government Americans. In related news, here is one Baltimore cop who has swallowed the whole SPLC party line: 10 tips and tactics for investigating Sovereign Citizens. Here he warns his fellow officers not to be swayed by Constitutional and court case citations. Incredible! (Thanks to C.R. for the link.)

Undoubtedly, a Darwin Awards Candidate. An important safety tip, folks: Most dynamic nylon climbing ropes have up to a 30% stretch factor, under load. Dynamic ropes should not be used for static rope applications, and generally, vice versa. And people who are unknowledgeable or bad at math should not engage in life-threatening hobbies. Our condolences to his family.

Here is the text of the majority of Connecticut’s new gun law package. When most of this idiocy presumably takes effect on July 1, 2013, it will make Connecticut one of the worst states in the nation. I hope that Connecticut gun owners as well as gun, ammo and magazine makers vote with their feet. There are a lot of gun-related companies there: Colt, Winchester, Marlin (which recently shut down after 141 years of operation in Connecticut), Mossberg, Sturm-Ruger, H&R, Stag Arms, A.H. Fox, US Fire Arms, Wildey, Shelton Ammunition, Okay Industries, Ronan/NHMTG, C-Products, Mec-Gar, PTR Industries (makers of the PTR91 clone of the HH91), G.T.B., and many more. I would not be surprised if a few of them end up relocating to the American Redoubt, or to other gun friendly states like Texas or Arizona. Perhaps it would be more practical to move closer by, to New Hampshire or Vermont, but we’d love to see an in-migration of pro-gun folks to the Redoubt!
