Forty Days and Forty Nights and now Neale's Gun Rant Number Forty

This week, Neale explains the idiocy of California's "microstamping" law, some more legal silliness in New York, but some optimistic news from Missouri, the land of Mark Twain, Robert Heinlein, T. S. Eliot, and Vincent Price.   And he finishes up with a Mama Liberty story. This week's illustration is, again, from "Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C3" (特例措置団体ステラ女学院高等科C3部 Now, I'm running out of gifs of cute anime girls firing guns.

Neale's Weekly Gun Rant Volume 40
by Neale Osborn

Attribute to L. Neil Smith's The Libertarian Enterprise

Joining Ruger in their boycott of California sales, Smith and Wesson announces they will no longer sell their handguns in Ca due to the ridiculous "microstamping" requirement. [Link].

On January 22nd renowned gun maker Smith & Wesson joined Sturm, Ruger, & Co., by announcing it would cease California sales of its semi-automatic pistols due to microstamping requirements that went into effect last year.

Ruger made the same announcement earlier this month.

Microstamping is a requirement that each firearm be fitted with a special firing pin that leaves a fingerprint on a bullet casing which differs from the fingerprint of every other firearm. In other words—every one of the wildly popular Smith & Wesson M&P .45 semi-automatic handguns would have to be manufactured in such a way so that no two of them left the same mark on a shell casing.

The cost of doing this would be incredibly high to manufacturers, and would be a cost they would have to pass on to consumers in higher prices.

Moreover, the result of doing this would be yet another gun registry—every gun sold that met microstamping requirements would have be to registered so that the government knew who owned the gun that left that fingerprint.

I hope they stick with it and refuse to sell to LEOs, as well! Fuck Kaleeforneeeyah!

My (hopefully soon-to-be-ex) state of New York has gone the next step. [Link]. Effective January 15, all sellers of ammunition will have to be registered with the state. And as soon as the database is set up, all ammunition sales will require a federal background check.

If you buy ammunition in New York State, you may soon need to undergo a background check.

The New York Safe Act will require retail sellers to do background checks and record sales once a state database is established and operational.

The state database is currently under construction. Last week, a federal judge in Buffalo upheld the New York SAFE Act, but did throw out the provision that limits magazines to seven rounds.

"You will not be able to purchase ammo and have it shipped to your home anymore. It will have to be shipped to a Federal Firearms Dealer. We have to record the sale and do, according to this letter we just received, a background check every time you purchase ammo," said Chuck Sherwood, owner of Timber Creek Sportsman Shop.

As of January 15th, all sellers of ammunition must register with the state. Also, all ammunition transfers in New York must take place in person, including internet sales and they must be facilitated by a New York state ammunition seller.

This crap has GOT to be stopped!

You have GOT to listen to this jackass to be able to believe it!! [Link]. Note—"Ghost gun" is a new Victim Disarmament Gang term for a gun with no serial number or made using a 3D printer. Next, just listen to his mash-up of gun terms and outright blatant lies. Just for starts—he claims the gun fires a thirty round magazine (NOT that he gets the terms for magazine and rounds correct) in half a second. That's faster than a Vulcan Minigun. An Uzi, with one of the fastest cyclic rates around, can hit 800 rounds per minute if tuned properly, can fire 6.67 rounds in half a second. To meet Mr. Idiot's claims, the "assault style weapon" he is holding would require a cyclic rate of 3600 rounds per minute—which ONLY the Vulcan Minigun can reach, and it needs 6 barrels, an electric motor to spin them, and, Predator to the contrary, is NOT man-portable. Ennyhoo, listen to Mr. Idiot, an be prepared to laugh. Then start crying—because we actually LOSE battles to jackasses like him!

I watched the video. [Link]. I cannot, for the life of me, see ANY justifiable reason to shoot a man on his stomach in the floor. it is a cold blooded murder by a cop. And I bet there are surveillance cameras in the area that had a better view that will back that up........IF they haven't been erased already.
Missouri is working to nullify federal gun laws. and that's a GOOD thing! [Link].

Like last year's version, the legislation would also allow designated school personnel to carry concealed weapons in buildings. Another provision would let holders of concealed gun permits carry firearms openly, even in municipalities with ordinances banning open carry. It would also lower the minimum age to get a concealed weapons permit to 19, down from 21.

But Nieves' bill is less specific about which federal laws it seeks to nullify. It removes references the 1934 and 1968 gun control acts while keeping generic references to fees, registration and tracking policies that "have a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership" of guns and ammunition by law-abiding citizens.

DAMN!!! This guy makes a LOT of sense! [Link]. Watch this and bring some sense in the world. DON'T be the gazelle after de-horning!

From Mama Liberty. [Link]. True stories of armed defense:
The evening was advancing much too quickly for me and I regretted staying in the city so long, then was dismayed to find that I was running low on fuel. I pulled into an old station in a small town just east of Custer, South Dakota, ran my credit card and started the pump. There were no other cars in the lot, and only a single clerk in the mini-mart.
Scanning the area, as always, I noticed a man come from behind the building and start to walk toward me. Continuing the scan, I saw another man coming toward me from the opposite direction. He seemed to be trying hard not to look at me, but failed badly. I was immediately on full alert and turned my head to see the other person. He was now within my 20 foot "danger zone" and maintaining eye contact as well. I put up my hand flat out with a command to stop. He just laughed and said, "Give me some money, lady."
Read on to see what happened next....
Methinks this rant be done, Gentle Reader. Until next time....
