“Gun control can render a populace incapable of doing a damned thing about a totalitarian and subjugating government. Gun control can keep average human beings defenseless, and thus easy prey for those who are stronger, faster, or more ruthless. Gun control can create the unfortunate unintended consequence of making the police forces unprepared for armed resistance, and thus more likely to take casualties when encountering it. But when it comes to its publicly stated goals, gun control is doomed to failure from the very outset, whether its supporters are willing to admit it or not.”

But, wow, do I want one of those tomahawks:

Harlan Whitman designed the Instinct Tomahawk as an evolution of the many generations of tactical tomahawks that came before. He grew up in Missouri with an artistic Mother and […]

now doking

If they can import this little bugger to the United States (doubtful, given our idiotic importation laws), and if it is in any way "affordable" (even more doubtful, given the class it is competing in), and if it actually manages to live up to its advertised specifications ("divine intervention" levels of doubtful), I will happily swallow (most of) my complaints about electric cars and plop my butt down in the one-and-only front seat of a […]

browncoats have bucks

By now, my readers should be more than aware of the fact that I am a proud Browncoat – I missed Firefly when it first aired on Fox, but on my parents’ urgings, I found the DVDs, and I am pretty sure I watched the entire series all the way through once I started.  And then found time to watch it again.  And have since watched it more times than I probably care to count.  […]
