As an update to yesterday's post on the gun experts at the Chicago Tribune, they've issued a correction of sorts.

It's pretty funny itself. Take this, for instance:

In our description of the flash suppressor placed at the end of the gun’s muzzle, we said the device breaks up the explosion that results from firing the gun. We also said that “some find the suppressor controversial as it could also make the flash from a shot less visible, allowing a shooter to conceal his position.” One very knowledgeable and articulate reader took issue with that statement, as concealment is not the suppressor’s primary function — it’s a safety device to prevent fires. We never said it was the suppressor’s primary function, only that it conceivably could make a shooter more difficult to locate, which is why it’s controversial.

No. No. No!

The reason flash suppressors are "controversial" goes back to the definitional problem of "assault rifle" vs. any old semi-auto rifle and the original assault weapons ban.

According to the Dems, this is an assault rifle:

... and this isn't:

Both are centerfire, semi-auto rifles with detachable box magazines, but only one of them looks scary to liberals.

So in the original assault weapons ban, the Dems threw in a laundry list of cosmetic features that distinguished an "assault rifle" ... pistol grips, bayonet lugs, flash suppressors, etc. Any 2 of them, and you had an "assault rifle".

That's it. That's the source of the supposed controversy about flash suppressors. But bayonet lugs kill dozens every week. Google it!

5 Good Morning Morons. Today is Thursday, January 24, 2013. On this day in 1848 gold was discovered at Sutter’s Mill near Coloma, CA. CA exploded in the resulting gold rush. Just a few decades ago the FSA discovered gold in the CA Legislature which had been under total Democrat control. Now the anti-rush is on as the productive parts of CA leave and the free shit denizens from all over the country and Mexico move it. If it were not for the federal tit it would have already collapsed back to 1848 levels.


Damn, Andy sneaked in early.

20 "Flash Suppressors" do NOT make a firing weapon more concealed. They are full of shit. I don't know how good they are at preventing fires but I do know that a .223 round fired from a mini-14 laying prone under a tree with pine straw all around WILL set the pine straw on fire.

But what they ought to ban is that shoot sideways thing, where you rotate the handgun around so the grip parallels the ground, the gangsta grip.

27 The liberals do now that there are really no differences between the AR-15 and the Remington BDL as far as firing go. Their strategy is the same as it has always been. Incremental confiscation is that strategy. Otherwise known as the boiling frog method.


Implement the "ugly gun" ban this year. AFter a suitable period start a new "controversy" over the "sporting weapons" with semi-auto. Let that ride for a while and then go after bolt-action weapons.


Soon you will have all of them. This is why the NRA fights EVERY one of their grabs tooth and nail and we should support them in that. When someone says "reasonable compromise" do NOT believe it for a minute.

In puppah science related news:

Diet Shaped Dog Domestication

Dogs had four to 30 copies of the gene for amylase, a protein that starts the breakdown of starch in the intestine. Wolves have only two copies, one on each chromosome. As a result, that gene was 28-fold more active in dogs, the researchers found. More copies means more protein, and test-tube studies indicate that dogs should be fivefold better than wolves at digesting starch, the chief nutrient in agricultural grains such as wheat and rice. The number of copies of this gene also varies in people: Those eating high carbohydrate diets -- such as the Japanese and European Americans -- have more copies than people with starch-poor diets, such as the Mbuti in Africa. "We have adapted in a very similar way to the dramatic changes that happened when agriculture was developed," Axelsson says.

34 Morning!

Has anyone seen Zero Dark Thirty?

Originally, I was not going to see this film.. mostly because the producers were given unparalleled access by the Obama admin to info that should have been deemed sensitive.

But now, the libtards are apoplectic over the movie "condoning torture".. to the point that idiots like Ed Asner and Martin Sheen are calling for the film to be ignored for Oscars.

So, now it would please me to see the film do well, especially on Oscar night!

But that gets back to my question.. is it any good as a film?

BTW - the book "No Easy Day" by the Special Ops guy who was actually there is a fine book and a gripping account of that night.

47 Hello again, ‘rons and’ ronettes. And thanks for the morning briefing, Andy and Vic.

Over the last few days, I’ve told you about the Sunset Boulevard and Addams Family houses. This morning, after you’ve grabbed that second hot cup of coffee, settle down for a moment while I pass on the tale of another famous Tinseltown building:

If you're a fan of classic Hollywood or are familiar with the WWII home front, it's likely you've heard of the Hollywood Canteen. Located in a former livery stable at 1451 Cahuenga Boulevard (where a parking garage now squats), it was the brainchild of actor John Garfield, who noted that the majority of servicemen who were fighting in the Pacific theater came through Los Angeles and were, like all star-struck tourists, eager for a glimpse of Hollywood before shipping off to war. Gilbert thought that the Canteen would be a place for soldiers to have a free meal while they met and were entertained by the town’s biggest stars.
I tend to feel that, despite the claims that movies are subversive, “Hollywood” has always been, in its way, a conservative town, giving audiences what it thinks they want (actors and producers and directors, as people however, are a different story). In 1942, what the country wanted was assurance that we were all on the same team, pulling together to kick Hitler and Mussolini and Tojo's asses and that, despite their fame and beauty and money, Hollywood stars were just the same regular, patriotic, all-American folks as Uncle Sam's boys.
Garfield got the strong-willed Bette Davis to be president of the Canteen. She was the one who found the location, and she was the one who, by force of personality, strong-armed nearly everyone who was anyone to do their turn. Marlene Dietrich danced with the GIs, washed dishes and served at the snack bar. Fred MacMurray and Basil Rathbone were among an army of busboys, and Spencer Tracy signed autographs in between serving up hot cups of joe at the counter. Abbott and Costello, Edgar Bergen, Red Skelton, Kay Kyser and Eddie Cantor were among the entertainers who sang, performed and played their hearts out every night, and if you wanted to send one last letter home before shipping out, secretaries from all the major studios were on hand to take dictation.
Meltingly beautiful stars such as Olivia de Havilland, Greer Garson and Carole Landis were only a few of the leading ladies who joined the over 3,000 "hostesses" who made sure the boys in khaki (and white, and blue and green) wanted for nothing. Officially, none were allowed to give their last names, addresses or phone numbers to the soliders, nor were they allowed to date them. . .but if you happened to be just the kind of square-jawed, clear eyed, manly man that appealed to, say, Bette Davis (to pick the most notorious), the odds were pretty good that you'd end the night luxuriating in the bed of a movie queen.
There was happiness at the Canteen - while washing dishes, Hedy Lamarr met her future husband, actor John Loder, as he dried them. But there was sadness too, and not just in the knowledge that so many of these young men would never come home again. . .
The luscious Gene Tierney was a hostess there; twenty-two and pregnant, she was exposed to German measles, a disease which rendered her newborn daughter hopelessly brain-damaged. Years later, at an LA party, Tierney was asked by a fellow guest if she had caught measles after the two had met at the Canteen. When a puzzled Tierney (who, after her child's birth, spiraled into a deep depression and had attempted suicide on multiple occasions) revealed that she had, the woman went on to explain that at the time, she had been stationed at a nearby Marine Corps camp that had been swept by an epidemic of measles, but she had deliberately broken quarantine so she could go to the Canteen and meet her favorite star: Gene Tierney.
On November 22, 1945, the Canteen closed. It had, in the words of writer David Wallace, "been open every day for three years, one month and twenty-eight days. In that time, it fed and entertained nearly four million servicemen, giving out nearly three million packs of cigarettes, six million pieces of cake, 125,000 gallons of milk and nine million cups of coffee."

Hope you all have a wonderful day. And by the way, have you read my movie book, The Director’s Cut: A Theda Bara Mystery? It’s available on Kindle, at the Amazon and Barnes and Noble websites or through your local bookstore. Help a fellow Moron out, won’t you?

Most of the Repuke shitstains sounded as poorly prepared as the JEF does every time he opens his stupid yap. Maybe those gladhanding shitstains could've directed one of their multiple aides to stop fellating the big donors for an hour or so and do some real work for the country and find some decent questions for that fatassed grifter. And then maybe spend a half hour or so not getting blotto on the high priced booze and review them before they go in and pontificate sounding like the worthless fucking windbags they are. And fuck Boehner and McConnell for not exerting any fucking leadership on those dickholes. Every fucking one of those turds should be primaried and hopefully tossed out on their worthless asses.

And Vic, I agree with you so far as the military (though, were TFG to actually declare war on some country, I guaran-damn-tee you Hollywood would turn into Patriot Town USA). My point was only that, for all the cries about movies mainstreaming torture porn, pedophilia and homosexuality, they are, at base, about giving an audience what it thinks they want. They thought people hated W as much as they did, so we had the slew of anti-war movies, for example.

Neal Gabler's An Emipre Of Their Own: How The Jews Invented Hollywood describes this process re the early moguls like Mayer, the Warners, Zukor and Cohn.

101 @Captain Hate,

I no longer expect anything from Republican politicians, because the operative word is "politician."

By its very nature, politics doesn't attract the best and the brightest. Look at the average tenure of Senators and Reps. It's no different than a cushy Civil Service sinecure. And think about the mail carriers you know. Cocky, worthless ticks on the ass of America.

I have little hope that anyone we send to DC is going to do a fuckin thing to right the ship. The thing about crawling down in the gutter is that once they get there, the other rats convince them that it's actually a hot tub, because hey, isn't the water nice and warm? Fuck em. ALL of em.

102 I happened to catch Hannity interviewing Senator Ron Johnson in the car yesterday. He said the 5-minute format (designed by sexual predator Menendez) made it very difficult to get information. Johnson did a credible job being as how he's not an attorney or a prosecutor, which is what was really needed.)

I also think credit should be given to Rand Paul, who got to the heart of it by pointing out that she was not doing her job. And he did it forcefully.

McCain did tell her that her answers weren't acceptable, but he wasn't very good at sounding righteously indignant.

And again I ask, as I have for the last few months, WHERE ARE THE SURVIVORS? Why don't we have their testimony?

Similarly, where are the survivors of the Algeria massacre? They were (according to NPR ) airlifted out by US military. ANyone interviewing them? Our crack media, for example?

By the way, I was listening to Hannity because the station which carries Beck and Dennis Miller got bought by CBS and converted to sports talk.

I hope those RNC people finally get their heads out of their rears and realize we are in a really serious war with the left. We are being outflanked while they argue which faction gets to collect donations.

126 The luscious Gene Tierney was a hostess there; twenty-two and pregnant,
she was exposed to German measles, a disease which rendered her newborn
daughter hopelessly brain-damaged. Years later, at an LA party, Tierney
was asked by a fellow guest if she had caught measles after the two had
met at the Canteen. When a puzzled Tierney (who, after her child's
birth, spiraled into a deep depression and had attempted suicide on
multiple occasions) revealed that she had, the woman went on to explain
that at the time, she had been stationed at a nearby Marine Corps camp
that had been swept by an epidemic of measles, but she had deliberately
broken quarantine so she could go to the Canteen and meet her favorite
star: Gene Tierney.

And sure enough, when the left-wing radicals started the "War for oil, Bush lied, etc." people like Sean Penn were right there with him.

We NEVER got a good war movie out of the first Gulf War. We NEVER got a decent movie out of Afghanistan, even though that was supposedly the "good war." Why didn't we ever get a movie about the Special Foprces guys who had to ride horses into battle?

This is why I watch about 1 new movie a year, and it is usually something like one of the Narnia movies with my grandchildren. I just cannot support the industry which has been so hateful to this country.

Pointing out that they're functionally the same means that those moderates will at least stand with us to prevent making ALL semi-auto weapons illegal, and may even get them to realize that AR-15 or M-4 isn't nearly as scary as it looks.

And, frankly, no assault rifle "looks" as scary as a tactical shotgun, and most of those are pump-action.

145 Transformers is a pro-military/pro-American movie. YMMV on whether or not one considers it a good movie.


Actually, I liked how the government was portrayed in all 3 of the Transformers movies. The first one came out while Bush was president (or was being made then, I can't remember the exact timing), and the Feds were a very stylized version of the Bush Administration.

Revenge of the Fallen (easily the weakest of the three) and Dark of the Moon were both TFG Admin movies, and the appeasement/surrender-monkey aspect was exactly what one would expect from TFG. The only problem w/ the portrayal in DotM was that the high-muckity-muck government type was a girl, and we know the SCOAMT would never hire a girl for anything if he didn't have to.

147 There are "anti-war" movies and war movies that are "anti-America."

I don't mind the anti-war theme, per se. "Paths of Glory" is about as good as you are going to get. It wasn't necessarily anti-war, but it was an indictment of the incompetence and politicization of war by the French military and government (something that would haunt them again in May of 1940).

Shit like "Lambs for Lions," "Rendition," "Valley of Elah" were just total America-hating propaganda which died quick deaths at the box office.

172 So, on that teacher-sexually-abused-20+-students story that Vic linked-

Okay, that's horrible, and we obviously have an epidemic on our hands- one we need to do something about.

But (related) here in TX, there was apparently some teacher who has been arrested and indicted (don't remember the specific charge- indecency w/a minor, maybe?) for making out with his 16 y/o (female) student. I heard the story this morning, and had a thought, I figured I'd air it here.

We know that this guy will get the book thrown at him- he's already "suspended w/o pay" and will likely be fired long before any verdict comes back. But what if the roles were reversed? Would a female teacher be on unpaid leave, or paid leave, if she'd been making out with her male student? Would she get fired at all? Experience says the answer to both of those questions is "no."

And I wondered- isn't that sexist? Isn't it like saying that those women are just so weak they had no possible way to resist the uber-manliness of their pubescent charges? While the men, of course, are much stronger, and should control themselves.

Am I completely wrong here?

Not "RIFLE". Assault Rifle or Battle Rifle is already well-defined: a select-fire rifle capable of full automatic fire - a "machine gun". That definition needs no other qualifications.

The AWB proponents acknowledge, privately, that ASSAULT RIFLES are already strictly controlled by the NFA. Their goal to remove all other firearms from the hands of citizens focuses on Assault WEAPONs (the 'W' in AWB), which is a nonsense term deliberately used to confuse the uninformed regarding whether or not such weapons only belong in the hands of "authorities" (military, LE, etc.).

If we can't get these terms straight, we may as well just give up on correcting the media, let alone educating the general public regarding the nature of this manufactured controversy.

201 Was Walt a good guy? I've always assumed that he was but the way things go I wouldn't be surprised if all that was a crock of shit. Spielberg is a worthless fuck so I have no problem with stories about him.

Yes and no. I don't know of any real scandals attached to him. I do know of rumors of pedophilia, but the sources are notorious for scandal-mongering out of whole cloth, so I tend to dismiss them. He was very egotistical - the first thing animators at the studio were told was that if they wanted to see their names on the screen instead ofWalt's, they belonged somewhere else -virulently anti-union and prone to fits of anger. So not a total shithead, but not the first guy you'd want to have a beer with, either.

203 Well, honestly, none of them stand up to any critical review. The effects were nice, the action was fun, stuff got blown to pieces, and the good guys won. That's really all anyone should be expecting from a "Transformers" movie.

Indeed.I have fairly low expections for90% of movies, action or not. If I don't turn off the cynicism and bullshit detector, very few movies will be enjoyable.

This Accountability Review Board is a load of manure, too. It's run by one of Hillary's friends, so it is going to give the party line. And it did not recommend any real action.

Thanks for that feedback. I really want to believe Walt was a good guy and that the guys that want to tarnish him are the same fuckheads that want to destroy the Boys Scouts. The funniest story I've heard about Walt (which I'm sure you've heard too) was five years after he died he had all his top men show up in a theater with designated seats. A movie came on of him pointedly looking at each of them and giving them directions for the future as if he knew what they'd recently done. I found that creepily hilarious.

They are buying the destruction of liberty with the Republic's coffers and casual slinging of "racist."

244 15 Miss Marple,

It is protocol to thank a person for appearing. You can tell how much heat a person is under if the Congresscritters omit protocol if they are old school. The democrats of course are uncouth sons of bitches and the public doesn't know enough, or care enough that they can't be bothered to learn the forms, strictures, and traditions of our system of government.

Society has moved on, we have a generation coming up that has not been taught to revere our nation for its promise nor value the bounty handed down by our forebears at BEST, and many are now actively being taught that our nation is irredeemably flawed at its heart and unworthy of any respect at worst.

If the democrats are not using that Constitution or our history I'd like to borrow both, as much of the population as i can convince that venerates it to follow me and I'd like to "buy" some land off the "United States" and get to work maintaining freedom in a new nation here on some of this soil.

They've tilted the balance so hard that unless we get school choice through and can exert coercive force through commerce on the bastards to teach what we want the bill of rights is doomed.

I didn't know that story, CH, thank you so much! It actually sounds like something either Harry Cohn or David Selznick would do, too. Over the weekend, I'll see if I can dig out a couple of short Disney stories.

Now you may know, but others not, that the animators'private nickname for Walt near the end of his life was "Wounded Bear" because of his temper and hacking cigarette cough.

Pretty much, Cao Cao ran his economy about 5 times more efficiently than ANY of the other warlords. He kept his military forces under extremely harsh discipline not to molest the peasants' economic lives. Was he ambitious? Yup but he understood the Han had shot its wad.

Liu bei "humble man of the people" ran three regions economies into the ground and betrayed 3 bosses or allies depending on your POV. Stole the region he wound up making his own from another Imperial Cousin and felt he was entitled to rule "well uh because." I praticularly like that he spiked his son like a fottball to browbeat Zhao Yun one of his best generals for trying to save Liu bei's family.

Dynasties decline, hell nations decline.....look at EUrope and now us on our way.

I've never gotten the whole royalty thing, never seen the fascination the left has for deifying their leadership.

I loved and missed Reagan but in the end he was about 2 pages of our story just like every leader but FDR is supposed to be.

338 The whole assault weapon features dance was the result of Josh Sugarmann buying a copy of shotgun news, looking at pictures of rifles he didn't like, and thought looked scary, and then identifying the things that made them look scary.

Sugarmann was specifically going for cosmetic features. He wanted to separate evil black rifles from the herd, hoping that the Fudds would go along with it.

“The semi-automatic weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the
public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus
semi-automatic assault weapons — anything that looks like a machine gun
is assumed to be a machine gun — can only increase that chance of public
support for restrictions on these weapons.”

340 “Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open
the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray's
case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the
journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the
issues. Often, the article is so wrong
it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I
call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories. Paper's full of them.


In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple
errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international
affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more

Ahhh... But Dems ALWAYS judge on the color of skin... not content of character.... or in this case, how it looks, not what it does...

Its all about their 'perceptions'... just as in their Dividing people by Race...

342 You mean "Only flash suppressors can prevent forest fires"? Who'd a thunk?

343 340 Agree completely. More than a few times I've seen complete nonsense in the papers and online concerning stuff I do know about. Lots of science reporting is so light on details and dumbed down so far as to get it completely wrong. "Easy" local stories get names, dates, occupations, events, etc. wrong. The retractions posted in the papers probably don't cover half of it.

344 I have to disagree that the lower rifle, which looks like a Safari Grade II BAR to me, has a detachable box magazine. I think it has a 3 or 4 round en bloc clip which attaches to the bottom plate and swings up into the magazine of the rifle. Agree with the basic point that it makes no sensefor mean looking rifles toget banned while wood stocked, nice lookingrifles, even thosewhich shoot semi-auto, don't get banned.

345 "According to the Dems, this is an assault rifle"

No. The artificially concocted Democrat term is "assault weapon." "Assault rifle" is a military term of art that refers specifically to a sub-caliber or pistol-caliber MACHINE GUN.

Dems wanted to blur the distinction between these military small arms (themselves the core subject of protected 2nd Amendment rights) and similar looking rifles that are semi-auto only so they called the semi-autos "assault weapons," knowing most people wouldn't know the difference. The effectiveness of this ploy is confirmed by this post, even as it tries to expose the ploy. Doh.

346 "...we mistakenly labeled the gun’s sling attachment as a mount for a bayonet or grenade launcher."

Classic. Simply classic.

347 Here's a tip for cons from progressives
Cut down on the ANGER!! How DARE your criticize the actions of our President and Democratic Representatives of Congress?!!. Why can't you be as rational, thoughtful intelligent and progressive as we are, you moronic twits? Why can't you be as loving, thoughtful and as good at listening to opposing views as we are, you racist, gun loving yahoos?? All we want for you to do is SIT DOWN and SHUT UP UP!! for your own good and for the good of the country we love so much and you clearly don't. I don't want to have to tell you this again, but since you clearly can't GET IT and are intellectually impaired I will need to, I suppose. The things I need to do for my country are burdensome but being the civic minded person I am, I forge on ahead.

Until I have to try to knock some sense into you again, have a good day.

Best wishes,

Your progressive friend.
