Firearm violence in TN

The TBI has released a report, notably that there’s been a near 25% increase in firearm related offenses.

Boom. Head not shot

A man goes deer hunting with a .50BMG (Why, I have no idea). He takes the shot at the deer and misses. But the deer still dies. Yikes.

I have been successfully marketed to

Apparently, everywhere I look a company called UNTUCKit has been marketing to me. They make casual shirts designed to be worn untucked. I mean, you can tuck them if you want. But they’re tapered a bit differently and aren’t too long when not tucked. I am not certain if, as part of their marketing plan, the online ads targeted me because I’m a gun person and Google ad services would know that. But the idea intrigued me a bit. A lot of gun folks wear something akin to what Tam calls “the gun burka.” Or dress like, as PDB* called them, tactical hobos. You know, oversized shirts, shoot me first vests, etc. And I was one to wear a button down shirt untucked regularly.

Anyway, I finally bought one. And wore it out on my birthday. And then I bought five more. I like them. I bought a basic white shirt. And a few flannel shirts. And some other patterned shirts. They look great, hide my gun and hide my Clinch Pick. They look decent with a jacket and are well made shirts.

But make sure you size up. That was one of the first complaints I saw at Amazon on them. So instead of a large, I got the XL.

You can get them at Amazon or their website UNTUCKit.com.

* Peace be upon his blog.

Update: They do not appear to market to gun toters openly. But they probably should.

An M&P15 Sport shot until it catches fire:

Life in the future

From Netflix:

The one were still scratching our heads about, the person who watched Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl 365 days in a row (streamin me timbers?). An impressive feat, especially as the average member watched around 60 movies on Netflix this year.

I’m not sure what worries me more: that I now know that or that Netflix knows this about someone.

The future is stupid.

New strategy

Moms demand something or another have a new strategy: Running for office.

The shocking thing about the piece is that the Moms claim to have 70,000 members.

The house passes reciprocity. Every body freak out.

Ah, the PSH is flowing. And I’m smiling.

First up, Governor Cuomo:

The appalling House vote for concealed carry reciprocity puts all New Yorkers at risk. This legislation would let individuals from out-of-state convicted of certain crimes carry hidden, loaded weapons in New York, in violation of New York’s much better, safer law. Only the NRA could propose something so ill-considered, dangerous and vile.

Lies in bold. Next, we have Bob Menendez (D-Ranged) threatening to break the law by unlawfully arresting those who would legally carry in his state.

And the MA AG has a whopper:

Reciprocity may be next deadly loophole in our nations gun laws

Look here, Sparky, I don’t have a fancy law degree not is profession in the law, like you. But a law is not a loophole.

Ah, the sweet, sweet tears.
