Eli sent us this video link where a “20-Something” with apparently mixed feelings about guns journeys into the wilderness to unleash his Inner Charlton Heston: Shooting the Biggest Guns Money Can Buy – The Big Sandy Shoot. BTW, that shoot looks like a lot more fun (and a lot safer) than attending a Saudi wedding.

B. in Idaho sent an interesting article about Syrian militias competing.  B. noted:  “It is notable that one militia that was built up over the course of two years was taken over by hardliners in just one day.  Munitions and all!  Reading that immediately reminded me of the averted conflict that you described in your first novel between Todd Gray’s militia and the Troy Templars.”

Buz Mills (who heads Gunsite Academy) forwarded this: Joe Manchin will fight back against the NRA with TV ad. Buz had these comments: “Let me make sure I understand this situation:  The kid killed his Mom (illegal), The kid stole his Mom’s guns (illegal), The kid stole his Mom’s car (illegal), The kid carried the stolen guns onto school grounds (illegal), The kid broke into a school (illegal), The kid killed 26 people (illegal).  Now just how would this new proposed legislation have prevented this act by a crazy SOB?  Suppose he had driven the stolen car into 26 children out on the playground (illegal.)  Would we need legislation like this to inhibit the purchase of a car?  I do not think so.  This is nothing but grandstanding to get reelected, this has nothing to do with making America better or safer!  Senator lets try again, just one time for America.”
