Man Bites Dog....

With Hollowpoints

After a dog owner lost control of her pit bull in Lewiston, Idaho, the dog ran off her property and attempted to attack a husband and wife out walking their dog. Recognizing the threat, the husband drew a pistol and shot the animal, ending the attack. The pit bull was taken to a local veterinary clinic, but later died.
Following the incident, Lewiston Police Department Captain Tom Greene made clear to local media, “If you’re in fear of your life, fear of your safety, and there is a well founded fear, you are able to defend yourself.” The pit bull was known to authorities, having been labeled a level one dangerous dog after it tried to attack a woman in 2011.

Ignorant AND Stupid..Dorm Segregation Seperating Gun Owners From The Rest Of The Students

The University of Colorado may want to check with its law professors on this one. The university system is releasing new Plessy v. Ferguson-like rules that would segregate its gun-owning students from the rest of their peers.

The university system is apparently planning to house students who have Right-to-Carry permits in separate dormitories on its Boulder and Colorado Springs campuses. Guns would be prohibited in other dormitories, as well as at football games, concerts, and other ticketed events.

The university's action is akin to the response of the District of Columbia Council to the Supreme Court's ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008). Miffed at having its beloved handgun ban struck down as a violation of the Second Amendment to the Constitution, the council adopted new gun control laws not covered by the Court’s ruling.

In the Colorado instance, the university is carving out a very limited exception for student permit-holders to comply with the Colorado Supreme Court's ruling that a total gun ban on campus is impermissible.

Kudos to the editorial staff of the Colorado Springs Gazette on this subject.  On Tuesday, the paper pointed out that mass murders typically take place in so-called "gun free zones."  "Given these observations," the newspaper said, "it is beyond belief that members of the Colorado Board of Regents have indulged a publicity stunt that establishes new 'gun‑free' zones on college campuses. Their actions could get students killed. . . . Don't think for a moment they are just trying to protect the young students from violence. They are grandstanding at the potential expense of safety."

Ya know, it isn't the guns or the gun owners that liberals fear, but the possibility of being ruled WRONG on anything. They know best, and to disagree with such sage know-it-alls should trigger (whoops!) a death sentence. Which is precisely what they are leveling upon the innocent by morphing them into defenseless sheep. And of course Colorado has long been a bastion of liberal stupidity, so why is this newsworthy.

Oh, and sorry about my problems with links lately. The new and improved Blogger has difficulties importing them. The above story was taken from an NRA email.

Stimulus Money Used To Fund Obama We-Love-Green Commercials

The Labor Department paid out hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal stimulus funds to a public relations firm to run more than 100 commercials touting the Obama administration’s “green training” job efforts on two MSNBC cable shows, records show.
The commercials ran on MSNBC on shows hosted by Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann in 2009, but the contract didn’t report any jobs created, according to records reviewed recently by The Washington Times.
Spending reports under the federal Recovery Act show $495,000 paid to McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations LLC, which the Labor Department hired to raise awareness “among employers and influencers about the [Job Corps] program’s existing and new training initiatives in high growth and environmentally friendly career areas” as well as spreading the word to prospective Job Corps enrollees.
The firm ultimately negotiated ad buys for “two approved spots” airing 14 times per week for two months on “Countdown With Keith Olbermann” and “The Rachel Maddow Show,” according to a project report, which listed the number zero under a section of the report asking how many jobs had been created through the stimulus contract.

NO ONE in their right mind would find this puzzling because that is precisely how Chicago gangsta-politics works.

Steal, keep on stealing until you get caught, then look for someone with enough juice to get you out of hot water.

Marines Switching Back To 1911

Not that my Marine Corps ever really adopted the popgun Beretta, but at least now they don't have to cobble together reliable .45 ACP's.

In recent years, the Marine Corps has been building its own .45-caliber pistols at a facility in Quantico, Va., using parts from existing inventory of Model 1911 pistols and other commercial parts, said Barbara Hamby, spokeswoman for Marine Corps System Command, which orders guns for the Marines. The government, however, hadn't bought new handguns from Colt for decades. That changed this month with the first order of up to 12,000 Colt pistols, starting with 4,036 right away

Letters...We Get Letters...We Get Lots And Lot Of Letters

 Anyone know anything about

Received an email from them and am wondering if this is nothing more than yet another spam/and or viral attack. Since my email gets hacked once a month or thereabouts, suppose I'm becoming gun shy. Then again, there's a  person I think I know who recommended a comment I made there a while back. If it's you, you know who you are. If it's not you, then who am I. One thing I do know for a fact is I'm not the gardener I once was.

Simple yes or no will suffice.
