-Land of the Free
The Bigmouth Tradition of American Leadership
[VictorHanson] To everything, there is a season.

America has always enjoyed two antithetical traditions in its political and military heroes.

The preferred style is the reticent, sober, and competent executive planner as president or general, from Herbert Hoover to Gerald Ford to Jimmy Carter.

#1  Lots of war criminals cited in that article: LeMay, Sherman, Grant, Lincoln. They would have hung...should have hung. So much for the Lieber Code or Geneva Conventions. Guess it helps to be on the winning side.

#2  First rule of law warfare - win. Winners get to write the history as well. BTW, there was no Geneva Convention the time of the American Civil War. Yet they only hung one of the Southern officers after the end, commandant of the Andersonville prison camp.

#4  All (true) morality is based on reciprocity - only an idiot (like Bush II or any other Pub Pol) can be polite to screaming, feces trowing, bandar-logs of the "cognitive elites".

#5  Two points:

1) Eisenhower: As his Presidential papers are declassified, we are discovering President Eisenhower had a hidden talent - he spotted small problems and prevented them from becoming big ones. He didn't have to handle many crises because he the crises never arose in the first place.

2) Patton's sure-handedness stemmed from his knowledge of weapons and tactics. Whenever he stopped at an American position, he would check out the machinegun and antitank positions. It is easy to be decisive when you have a solid grasp of the details.

On the other hand, he tended to ignore logistical matters, thereby ensuring that his troops would run out of gasoline in front of the enemy.

This Week in Guns, December 30th, 2017


By Chris Covert
Rantburg.com

The ATF has proposed a new rule regarding the bump stock, the device used in Las Vegas last fall to simulate full automatic rifle fire. I think if the rule is approved, the ATF will be sued and rule will be dropped.

I have an idea about regulating bump stocks: don't buy one. There - problem solved.

A news report from the UK Independent describes a New York leftist gun group, part of the Redneck Revolt network of leftist groups, whose intent is to protect minorities from Trump supporters by using firearms.

Much of the report is from the group’s founders, with little imput from anyone else. Commenters at Hershel Smith's blog point out that New York has draconian gun laws which can put a damper on the enthusiasm behind the new gun group. Because of that, Trump supporters can't get decent firearms in New York either.

Leaving aside for the moment the presumed nobility of their efforts to protect ethnic groups that did not ask to be protected, wouldn't it be easier to go with freedom? Ditch the 20,000+ gun laws in the US and let minorities decide how they will protect themselves?

Loads

Housekeeping notes:

Quarterly reports are out. Also included are price reports from a year ago. Not much to say about either except prices for ammunition have changed very little in the past year.

Also, the Used Gun of the Week was suggested by Besoeker.

Rantburg's summary for arms and ammunition:

Pistol ammunition prices were mostly steady. Rifle ammunition prices were steady.

Prices for used pistols were mixed. Prices for used rifles were mixed.

New Lows:

None

#8  From Silentbrick's link (and pic of the pencil necked asshole):
A 25-year-old man believed to be behind a swatting incident that led to a fatal police shooting in Wichita, Kansas, has been arrested in Los Angeles, officials say. He has been identified as Tyler Raj Barriss, who is known online as "SWAuTistic."

Barriss, 25, was arrested in South Los Angeles on Friday afternoon. He was taken into custody on a fugitive warrant, according to NBC News, but details about the charges he is currently facing were not immediately available.

Barriss, who has a history of swatting, was arrested in October 2015 and charged with making two bomb threats to ABC7 (KABC-TV). The first one happened on September 30, 2015, when the channel's studios in Glendale, California, were evacuated and searched by police.

The incident in Wichita began at about 6:15 p.m. on Thursday when police received a call stating that someone had killed his father by shooting him in the head. The caller further claimed that the shooter was now holding his mother, brother and sister hostage.

#16  Some out of state loser phones in an anonymous tip. With no other information whatsoever, local police break into a man's home and shoot him dead.

Doesn't this suggest something about the state of policing in this country?

#17  "Doesn't this suggest something about the state of policing in this country?"
There are plenty of recent examples.
Scared guy with a gun lacking training.
Training is the real issue when all is said and done.
Posted by: newc || 12/30/2017 17:39 Comments || Top||

#18  Since the guy is in California, and the victim is in Kansas, This is an interstate crime, and as such is a federal crime. There is a death penalty for capital murder.

The guy claimed since he did not pull the trigger, he's not responsible. What he is not aware of is that he used the SWAT as an weapon and as such he is fully responsible for the outcome.

As for the officer who did the actual shooting, he was most likely nervous (i.e. "the fog of war) and misunderstood the man moving his hands from his back as "drawing a weapon" and fired his gun without seeing an actual weapon. I would say that he violated the ROE. If he didn't (no such rule in place), then the entire SWAT team need to be disbanded until they received proper training.

At any rate, this was apparently a poorly trained SWAT team and should have never been dispatched.

This is an example of a 'Cluster F***'.

[DavidThompson] In which we marvel at the mental contortions of our self-imagined betters.

The year began with searing insights from the world of academia. Specifically, London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, where black student activists denounced objectivity as an "alienating" concept, and issued numerous demands, allegedly to challenge stereotypes of student laziness and inadequacy.

...February provided further illustrations of this fashionable malice, as when educators at the University of Cincinnati bemoaned the fact that their attempts to inculcate unrealism, dishonesty and pretentious racial guilt were still being met with pockets of resistance.

...Accessorising was an unexpected topic of discussion in March, when the crushingly put-upon students at Pitzer College, Claremont, California, informed the world that "winged eyeliner and big hoop earrings" are "an everyday act of resistance," and should therefore be the exclusive ornamentation of the slightly brown and radical.

...No less impressive were the attempts to "transform" middle-school children by making maths lessons "intersectional," thereby furthering the cause of "social justice." A process that entailed reducing the time available for humdrum things like trigonometry and using it instead to teach children to "subvert power," while scorning maths itself as a "dehumanising tool."

...In July, we once again witnessed the educational benefits of "an academic background in gender studies," and self-declared activist and single mother Jody Allard impressed us with her exemplary feminist parenting, and a determination to humiliate her own teenage sons, publicly and in print, for the sins of being white and male, and therefore, obviously, potential rapists.

...Our sexual horizons were broadened in September when we learned of the phenomenon of "ecosexuality" and the orgasmic delights of rock rubbing, tree licking and frottage al fresco.
