Odds ‘n Sods:

Some disjointed thoughts from the Emergency Management of the Oso Mud Slide. Some things worked, and some things didn’t. Those of you involved in Emergency Management may be able to pick up a few things from a non-fire related incident. – R.J.

ATF’s purchase reporting requirement gives lie to ‘military features’ test. – B.B.

Holder announces task force on ‘homegrown’ terrorists – B.B.

HJL adds: I have concerns over this administration’s willingness to declare domestic violence perpetrators “terrorists”. Case in point, the Feds still won’t call Army Major Nidal Hasan’s assault on Fort Hood a Terrorist Action, yet a drunk neighbor who pulls a shotgun on a father teaching his daughter how to ride a bicycle is somehow “terroristic”? Do we not have those backwards? It seems to me that the Feds are minimizing the human aspect of its own citizens and emphasizing global citizenship. If it quacks like a duck, waddles like a duck, and looks like a duck, let’s just call it a duck. Nidal Hasan was a terrorist, and this man’s neighbor is guilty of drunken domestic violence. I suspect the government’s perceived confusion over the issue is related to their militarization of the local law enforcement. It’s a whole lot easier to fire your weapon upon a terrorist than it is to do so upon your own brother or neighbor.

Another police intervention gone wrong: Minneapolis police used Taser on pregnant woman. – R.B.

I’ve seen this video before (or one similar to it) sent in by T.P., but while we are still under a shortage of .22LR ammo, it’s good to watch to remind us that CCI alone produces 4 million rounds every day from its Idaho plant. The U.S. Government is not a significant consumer of .22LR ammo, showing that we are our own worst enemy when it comes to the ammo shortage. The law of supply and demand is in full force.
