A Timely Response

A nasty crime spree in my general area comes to a close.

Serial Killer Captured

Month long rampage across NJ and PA saw 10 shot, 7 killed

Oh wait, this never even made the news. Because almost everyone involved is black.

4 murders and 1 attempted murder in NJ (at the east end of Route 78)

A 22-year-old Elizabeth man has been charged with three homicides and one nonfatal shooting in Elizabeth on June 25 as well as the shooting death of his cousin the month before.
...
In Union County, West has been charged with the shooting deaths of Dennis Vega, 28, Jamil Payne, 29, Kelvin Nelson, 32, all of Elizabeth, who were killed on June 25 and the May 18 shooting death of West’s cousin, Michael Thompkins, 29, in the hallway of his Elizabeth home. West also is facing attempted murder and weapons charges in connection with the June 25 shooting of Richard Marte, 24, of Elizabeth. Park said Marte is recovering from his injuries but is expected to survive.

“We have never seen one individual commit this type of shootings spree, murder spree in such a short period of time in this county,” Park said Thursday during a news conference.
...
[Acting Union County Prosecutor Grace H. ] Park said Todd West was charged with murder and a number of weapons offenses after he was arrested this week in Pennsylvania in connection with two July 5 homicides in Allentown, Pennsylvania, where he has family and one in Easton, Pennsylvania.

3 murders and 2 attempted murders just over the border in PA, plus a series of early morning muggings. (where Route 78 crosses into PA)

Twenty-nine minutes after buying ammunition for a .38-caliber revolver at a Walmart, three men in a white sport utility vehicle opened fire early Sunday in Easton’s West Ward, the start of a bloody rampage that left three dead, authorities said Tuesday in announcing arrests.

Kory Ketrow, 22, was gunned down at 3:14 a.m. in the 1100 block of Lehigh Street as he walked home. Minutes later, about a mile away, one of the men in the SUV fired at a couple driving near Route 22 in Easton’s downtown, authorities said.

That couple was spared when the shooter missed his mark, but authorities said the spree of indiscriminate shooting was not over.

The men in the SUV made their way to Allentown, where they opened fire on Francine E. Ramos, 32, and Trevor D. Gray, 21, two Allentown residents riding in a car near Sixth and Greenleaf streets, authorities said.

Ramos crashed into the SUV in an attempt to get away, authorities said, but she was found dead in her car at 3:59 a.m. Gray died a short time later.

At separate news conferences detailing the violent crime spree, authorities in Lehigh and Northampton counties said they did not know why the three men arrested — one from Easton and two from New Jersey —fired at people randomly early Sunday morning.

“Based on the evidence, all of these acts, all of them, appear to be completely random,” Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin said Tuesday afternoon.

Robert A. Jourdain, 20, of Easton; Todd West, 22, of Elizabeth, N.J.; and Kareem Mitchell, 23, of Newark, N.J., were arrested Monday and face three counts of homicide in the killings, and two counts of attempted homicide in the downtown Easton shooting.

Jourdain and West also were charged in three Allentown knifepoint muggings that happened the day after the killings, police said. They were arrested when Allentown patrolmen chased them down minutes after the third Monday morning mugging. Mitchell turned himself in later that day.

That makes 7 murders and 3 attempted murders, for a total of 10 shootings. All by the same guy, with the same gun, although sometimes he had some help with him.

So what’s the public outcry? Stop selling ammo late night at Wal-mart.

Friends and loved ones of Kory Ketrow say they’lll advocate for legislation that regulates the late-night sale of bullets.

Ketrow, 22, of Easton, was fatally shot at 3:15 a.m. on July 5 as he walked home in the city’s West Ward.

He was a random victim who authorities say didn’t know his assailant, identified by police as Todd West, 22, of Elizabeth, N.J.

West killed Ketrow and two other people in Allentown with ammunition purchased at 2:45 that morning at the Wal-Mart in Lower Nazareth Township, police said.

“I think Wal-Mart should be held accountable,” said Rich Bader, whose family took in Ketrow the past few years. “I don’t understand what a young man 20 years of age is doing coming in to buy ammo at that hour and he gets it. It shouldn’t happen.”

Police say 20-year-old Robert Jourdain, of Easton, who is among three men charged in the three killings with West, bought the .38-caliber bullets used in shootings.

A spokesman for Wal-Mart couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Bader said he’s only just begun to rally support for a change in the law that would outlaw bullet sales at certain times. It would be called “Kory’s Law” and forbid ammunition sales between 10 at night and 5 in the morning, he said.

“I feel Kory didn’t die in vain. He died for a reason,” said Bader, who has a 21-year-old son of his own. “I believe the reason is we’ll be able to change some gun laws.

I feel bad for these people, I do. It’s horrible that these lives were snuffed out for no reason at all by some psychotic bastard. But if had had to wait another few hours to get more bullets, then the shootings would have just happened the next night. Most likely to some other people. And he’d still have more than half a box of ammo left, and who knows, he could still be out there on the lamb.  I’m not really sure that outlawing late night sales would do a thing, other than perhaps annoy some hunters somewhere down the line in the fall.

Gun Porn

Pedersoli’s White Hawk, The Indoor Rifle

An almost perfect idea

image

image

What it is, is a .177 caliber pellet rifle that uses #209 shotgun primers as a power source. So it goes BANG pretty well, and zips a little lead pellet along at about 700fps. More than fast enough to knock holes in paper from across the room. Powerful enough for mice and perhaps even rats.

It’s the concept that I like; the thing is marketed as an indoor rifle.

A break open muzzleloading light weight handy rifle with modern technical features and ideal for indoor shooting. The 4.5mm caliber barrel folds down by pushing a lever in front of the triggerguard. Ramrod is stored on the upper part of the barrel. Buttstock with checkered grip and black plastic buttplate and forearm. Stock is hardwood with a satin finish. 2 1/2” drop with 14 1/2” trigger pull. Barrel is 4.5mm (.177) caliber, blued. 17 3/4” in length, round - .570 outside diameter, rifled with 10 lands and grooves. This is a 1 in 15” twist. Has front sight - blued steel blade style and rear sight - blued steel open style. Ignition is percussion - 209 primer only. Features color casehardened receiver blued steel furniture. Overall length is 34 5/8” and weighs 3 1/2 lbs. Accessories include a steel ramrod w/brass tip threaded 5/32” and a brass brush. Recommended load is .177 BB. Average muzzle velocity is 690 ft/sec. Manufactured by Pedersoli/Italy.

image

About $400. From Pedersoli, so you know it’s a well made firearm.



Indoor rifles. Harrrummph.

But pellet guns fired by primers? Almost a great idea. How about taking it up a notch? Or up 5 notches? And moving outside of course.

How about a pellet rifle powered by those nailgun blanks? Heck, those yellow ones can drive a bolt into 5” of hardened concrete. Think what they’d do to a pellet!! Answer: a lot! And it’s already been done. The hotter blanks can push a little .22 airgun pellet at more than 2800fps, more than double the speed of a .22LR bullet (which weighs 3 times as much).  They don’t seem too accurate though, which is no surprise what with pellet gun vs rifle bore diameter differences, and lot to lot variation of nail gun blanks, which probably aren’t built to exacting pressure specs like actual ammunition.

So where do we go from there? Hey, how about real bullets in real rifles, propelled by nail gun blanks? And once again, it’s been done. But, and this is the nice but, but it’s a better solution. Swage down a slightly oversize soft lead ball, lube it up and load it into a custom made adapter cartridge, and even the mid power nail gun loads will push a 30gr chunk of lead at better than 900fps. And with an adapter, you can get one for every caliber. Naturally, the smaller the bore, the faster the bullet. But blasting squirrels and rats with an 80gr bullet in your .375 H&H safari rifle has to be a hoot.

See? This is why I reload. I don’t need to buy the adapter. Or the custom funky little rifle, even though it’s rather neat. Lubed round ball loads work in just about every rifle, and usually 5-8 grains of either Bullseye or Unique powder will get them up to suitable backyard hunting speed. In the larger calibers, these nearly silent rounds pack nearly as much power as a .357 Magnum pistol. They aren’t toys at all.

No Good Reason Necessary

Federal Judge Strikes Down DC’s Prohibitive CCW Law

Injunction issued against ‘good reason’ requirement for concealed carry permit

A federal judge has issued a preliminary injunction saying the District of Columbia’s new concealed carry law is unconstitutional.

The order, issued Monday by Judge Frederick J. Scullin, was the second decision in less than a year declaring the Washington, D.C., gun carry laws to be unconstitutional. In October of 2014, the same judge ruled that the district’s complete ban on gun carry was also in violation of the Constitution.

Scullin barred DC Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy Lanier from enforcing the city’s requirement that a person applying for a concealed carry permit must prove they have a “good reason” to need one. This requirement created a system where only those with police reports detailing violent threats against them could obtain a permit.

Critics said the requirement was the reason few permits had been issued thus far, and argued that it violates the Second Amendment.

The “good reason” clause was used to deny three men who wished to carry weapons in the District permits. The men—Joshua Akery, Tyler Whidby, and Brian Wrenn—joined with the Second Amendment Foundation to file suit against the city.

In Monday’s order, the court sided with the plaintiffs.

“This conclusion should not be read to suggest that it would be inappropriate for the District of Columbia to enact a licensing mechanism that includes appropriate time, place and manner restrictions on the carrying of handguns in public,” Judge Scullin said in his ruling. “The District of Columbia’s arbitrary ‘good reason’/’proper reason’ requirement, however, goes far beyond establishing such reasonable restrictions.”

Well of course. By DC’s failed reasoning, the only people who “need” a gun are probably already marked for death. So why issue them one, when it will probably cause some poor “misunderstood youth” to have his new career as an aspiring rapper cut short?

FAIL. And another BS law is soooo outta here. We hope.

Rights regulated by permits aren’t rights. They are permissions at best. And additional taxes. Temporary permissions.

Redefining The Term

D***** B**



Fake NYC gun shop opens up for two days to lure in customers to preach anti-gun zealotry.

Even in ultra liberal New York City, I’m amazed these assclowns didn’t get the crap beat out of them. Hourly.

A “gun shop” that suddenly appeared in the heart of Manhattan last week only to close its doors after two days was actually an elaborate ruse by a pro-gun control group that sought to lure potential customers in order to make their anti-firearms case.

States United to Prevent Gun Violence set up the “Guns with History Gun Shop” on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, and pretended to offer for sale guns used in high-profile crimes. The phony sales pitches were really part of a “social experiment”—pretexts for telling customers about the dangers of gun proliferation in unconsummated transactions recorded by hidden cameras, according to the group. In one such conversation, the bogus clerk shows a replica Bushmaster assault rifle like the one Connecticut State Police said Adam Lanza used in the Sandy Hook school massacre.

“Collectors love this one,” the actor states in a video the anti-gun group posted on YouTube. “Adam Lanza’s mom had this in her collection, too, until he took this and several other guns and killed her and then went down to Sandy Hook and killed 6 teachers and 20 innocent children. Twenty little kids…Gone like that.”

Pro-gun advocates called the effort a misleading stunt.

“This is a tasteless PR stunt designed to further an anti-gun agenda, and it’s out of touch with reality,” NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker told FoxNews.com. “As gun ownership has risen to an all-time high, violent crime has fallen to a 43-year low, and the firearm accident death rate has fallen to the lowest that it has been in over a hundred years. A clear majority of the American people support the use of firearms for protection and put more faith in gun ownership rights than in gun control.”

Another critic blasted the fake gun shop, calling it “the most disgusting and outrageous stunt” gun control “extremists” have cooked up to date.

...

The replica weapons displayed at the store bore tags linking them to specific crimes, while a sign in the front window beckoned passersby with a sign saying, “First-time gun buyer? We are here to help you.” Several purported customers were shocked when they learned of the stories behind each of the guns.

“A very handy gun,” the clerk says in another segment as he shows a 9-mm. semiautomatic to another customer. “Easy to use. It’s a great gun to carry in your purse, like that gal from the Walmart, her 2-year-old son reaches into her pocketbook, pulls it out, shoots her.”

That must have been the biggest and strongest 2 year old in human history. Actually, no, I’m not buying it AT ALL. The pistol was a S&W M&P Shield.  I’ve handled one. No way on earth a toddler could even pull the trigger, with it’s 6lb pull and 2 3/4” reach. No. Sorry, either she committed suicide or one of her older kids shot her, probably by accident, and everyone is playing “blame the baby” because they know nothing will come of it. Plus the damn gun has a safety, which has been shown to accidentally engage itself. That’s right, the safety turns on easily when the gun moves around in a holster. Look it up.

Time To Move. Right NOW.

San Fran Cops Honor 10 Year Old Boy

Fairfield police last week recognized a 10-year-old boy and his father for courageous actions they took in September, police said.

Nathaniel Biggs was visiting the Cordelia branch of the Solano County Library on Sept. 15 when he saw a friend put a semi-automatic handgun into a backpack. When Nathaniel’s father Jason picked him up at the library, Nathaniel told his father about what he had seen, and Jason called Fairfield police.

Officers responded and located and detained Nathaniel’s friend without incident. Officers also located the handgun and a fixed blade knife and a Shuriken in the backpack of Nathaniel’s friend.

Police said because of the information provided by Jason and Nathaniel, police were able to recover an illegally possessed and stolen firearm.

On the one hand .... gosh, isn’t this great, kid helps stop the violence, because #kidslivesmatter. And so forth.

On the other hand ... little nanny state do gooder sells out his friend. How old do you think a 10 year old boy’s friends are anyway? 10? Maybe 12? Certainly not 24. Not with a backpack doing homework at the library. The friend was 11. With a gun, and a big knife, and a throwing star. Do you think that kid is still in jail? Hell no. And have you heard the expression “stitches for snitches”? Wasn’t it great of the police to publicly honor the kid and for the press to run the story with his name and photo? Just in case friend 11 didn’t figure out who outed him?
{ psssst, hey dad - what time is it? Time to move son, right the fug now! }

Says the police: Without their involvement, the firearm would not have been recovered and the child would have continued playing with it, possibly with disastrous results. This is a perfect example of what can be accomplished when alert citizens speak up and partner with the police department. Together we can make Fairfield a safer community!

Sorry to rain on your parade, but if the kid also had a big knife and a ninja star, there wasn’t any playing going on. Kid had a 3 layer plan to either fend off or deliver death. There’s a serious, serious problem here of some kind. Gangs, criminals, bullying, abuse, something.

Not In My Country. What About In Yours?

Doing It Wrong: Gun Range Bans Muslims



In the five months since Jan Morgan banned Muslims from her gun range in Hot Springs, Ark., business has boomed and predictions of a lawsuit brought by federal civil rights enforcers have so far proved inaccurate.

Morgan, who claims keeping Muslims out of her Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range is a matter of public safety and not a constitutional issue, says she made the decision in September after two customers she deemed suspicious visited. She said their furtive behavior and cellphone ringtones of “Allahu Akhbar” prompted her to revise her range’s policies.

“We are dealing in lethal firearms,” Morgan told FoxNews.com. “I’m not going to let a Nazi shoot in here, or a Ku Klux Klan member in here, either.”

Morgan said she excludes those she believes to be Muslim based on their names. She says business is up, but she has gotten threats, which she brushed off.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arkansas also has petitioned federal authorities to do something about Morgan’s rules. [along with petitions from CAIR et al] Executive Director Rita Sklar told FoxNews.com Morgan’s claim the gun range was acting out of legitimate caution is a dog that doesn’t hunt.

“It’s discrimination based on religion, or, in this case, perceived religion and is a violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act,” Sklar said. “It isn’t based on that person’s behavior or anything they could reliably use that could be used to bar the person from the premises.”

Sklar also said that while the ACLU chapter has not heard back yet from the DOJ, her group would be “more than happy” to proceed with legal action should a client approach them.


What say you, fellow freedom defenders and Constitutionalists? Right, or wrong?



I can understand her viewpoint. And I can appreciate her “ends”, but I don’t think this is the right “means”. It’s a public range, open to the public. Her logic isn’t right ( and this is where you smart folks make a Logic 101 remark about de Morgan’s Rules, m’kay? ).

BMEWS Consulting has a solution, pro bono. Make the range a private club, and extend the membership opportunity to whoever you want, invitation only. Join now, lifetime membership, for just $5 to cover the cost of the photo ID card. Is that legit? Or does it put us in that Atlanta Golf Club situation with their Men Only rule? What’s your solution, or is it fine to discriminate against these folks based on their names? Names like Barack Hussein Obama actually. Hey, they all looked like overweight balding Christian white guys with glasses who smoke, if you ask me. That’s makes it Ok, right? Right??

What’s with the door? It took me an hour to cut a hole in door for a cat flap - with a power saw. Sell your guns and use the money to buy proper doors.....

I can see why Americans all want guns so much when they build their doors out of paper and houses out of wood. I wouldn’t feel safe in a place like that.

Magazine Capacity Limits Might Have Killed Him

Store Clerk Takes On 4 Armed Robbers

Shoots 2, the others ran



A Tulsa liquor store clerk took on four masked men during an attempted robbery earlier this week, shooting and killing two and helping bring an end to a serial robbery ring.

The four assailants entered Ryan’s Liquor at around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the Tulsa World. One of the men, 27-year-old Brian Powell, pulled out a handgun and fired a shot upon entrance and demanded money.

But the store clerk did not comply. Instead, he pulled out a semi-automatic pistol and fired it, hitting and killing Powell and 16-year-old Kevin Dobbs.

A Tulsa man seven months shy of ending his probation for a prior larceny conviction is one of two men identified by police as being shot by a store clerk during a failed robbery attempt Tuesday night.
...
Police also announced the arrest of two men, 20-year-old Lakeit Thompson and 17-year-old George K. Williamson, in connection with the botched robbery attempt, as well as “other robberies.”

Thompson was being held Tuesday morning on six counts of robbery with a firearm, as well as two counts of attempted robbery, two counts of felony murder and a number of traffic complaints.
...
According to his arrest report, Thompson has been connected by police to eight separate robberies, the first of which happened Dec. 7. The circumstances behind each robbery were the same — multiple suspects armed with weapons entering a store and leaving with money.

Williamson was connected to three alleged robberies, according to his arrest report.

There’s your new MO. A whole damn gang of career criminals attacks a store at once. Better start training to be the next Jerry Miculek.

And yes, the gang of robbers looked exactly the way you think they looked.

another voice heard …. hey Liam, you can always go back to Ireland. No guns there, are there?

Wunerful,wunerful.
Another foreign celeb, actor Liam Neeson has his say on guns in America.  Claims there kids being shot in schools every week.
That’s the quote anyway.


‘America has too many f****** guns’: Taken star Liam Neeson launches expletive laden tirade on gun control

The 62-year-old is famous for playing gun-totting father Bryan Mills in Taken franchise
He defended his on-screen role, saying movies were just ‘fantasy’

Neeson spoke out after being asked about the Paris terrorist attacks

He said his ‘thoughts and payers and heart’ were with the Paris victims

Was reportedly paid more than $20 million for Taken 3 - elevating him to the same pay-bracket as Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie
Taken 3 shot to number one at the box office over the weekend with a gross of $39.1 million
The ultra violent revenge franchise as raked in $630 million at global box office

By Steve Hopkins for MailOnline

But now the Irish-born actor and star of the ultra-violent Taken trilogy has thought it wise to wade into America’s fraught gun debate.

Speaking at a press conference in Dubai for the launch of Taken 3 on Tuesday, Neeson offered an interviewer his opinion of his adopted home’s attitude to firearms.

‘There’s just too many [expletive] guns out there,’ said Neeson, who is reputed to have been paid $20 million for the new latest Taken installment.

‘Especially in America. I think the population is like, 320 million? There’s over 300 million guns. Privately owned, in America.

‘I think it’s a [expletive] disgrace. Every week now we’re picking up a newspaper and seeing, ‘Yet another few kids have been killed in schools.’

Never mind the article and Neeson, read the comments following the article.
A number from the USA and some maddening ones from euros who think they know America. All still interesting to read as well as entertaining.

Facts Vs Feelings: Beat The Meme

“People Just Aren’t Buying Guns Anymore”



image



I ran across a little post that was a rejoinder to the leftist meme that American’s penchant for buying firearms had peaked. Oh it so ain’t so. All you have to do is look at the numbers and the facts.

While it may be the case that NICS reports are down for 2014, down a whopping “great” 0.5% that is, the 2014 numbers are still larger than 2005 and 2006 combined.

Also, the rise of concealed carry permits (CCW) issued is nearly exponential (annual growth rate now 8 times higher than in 1999 with more than 12 million current holders), and (surprise surprise!) nearly half the states allow CCW holders to avoid the NICS process. I didn’t know that! Plus the unknown but (probably also increasing) significant percentage of firearms traded between individuals. Both mitigate the value of the NICS numbers as the primary trend indicator (NICS is a background check run at a gun store prior to a firearms purchase. One check can cover the purchase of one or more firearms at that time. This also mitigates the value of NICS as an indicator.)

So no, it ain’t so.

law enforcement officials discussing their asset forfeiture wish lists

Blatant violation of Amendment IV of the Bill of Rights:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

“IF IN DOUBT … TAKE IT!”

That’s the advice in a slideshow presented to New Jersey prosecutors pursuing civil asset forfeiture cases, an obscure process which allows the government to take citizens’ property even if they have not been convicted or charged with a crime.

This is the kind of government that the Second Amentment was designed to allow us to fight against.

I always love anti-gun Democrats, Liberals, and Rinos, who always say the support ‘the right to hunt.’ In fact, hunting isn’t mentioned in the Second Amendment. Every time I’m a a rally or City commission hearing and I ask that… silence.

One Million Pounds-Feet




Test firing a reproduction bronze 24 pounder cannon, modeled on the guns found on the famous 1628 sunken Swedish ship Vasa.

A 24 pounder fires an iron ball 5 1/2 inches in diameter. A full charge of 16 pounds of black powder propels the cannon ball out the muzzle of this 9 1/2 foot long gun at 1650 feet per second.

Mass (in grains, of which 7000=1lb) times velocity (fps) times velocity (fps) divided by 450240 = pounds-feet of kinetic energy.

1,015,858.209 lb-ft, to be exact.

Given that the surface area of a hemisphere is 2πr2, a 24lb cannonball has 47.5 square inches of impacting surface to distribute that force. That’s over 21,379 pounds-feet of energy per square inch, which compares quite well with heavy rifles, whose bullets generate about 24,500 lb-ft/in2. But this is 24 pounds, versus 9/10 ounce. Momentum to spare. No wonder the ball blasts right through 2 6 inch thick oak planks without hardly slowing down.

Guns Are Too Complex For Some; Stick With Hickory Sticks

Jose Canseco Shoots Off His Finger

While Cleaning His Gun

“I didn’t know the gun was loaded”



Former major league slugger Jose Canseco blew his middle finger clear off his hand while cleaning his handgun at home in Las Vegas.

Jose’s fiancée Leila Knight tells TMZ Sports ... he was sitting at a table in their home cleaning the gun when it went off. She says he didn’t know it was loaded—and the shot ripped through the middle finger on his left hand.

Leila tells us 50-year-old Canseco is in surgery right now as doctors desperately try to save what’s left of the finger. She says the bullet tore through the bottom part of the finger and doctors have already said he’ll never have full use of it again ... even under the best of circumstances.

Worst case ... it may be amputated.

Metro police Lt. Mark Reddon says officers responded to a call of an accidental shooting shortly after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Reddon says the former Oakland Athletics outfielder told police he was cleaning his gun in the kitchen when it fired, shooting a finger on his left hand. He was taken to University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.

Canseco is a right-handed batter who hit 462 career home runs and was a six-time All-Star. He also played for Texas, Boston, Toronto, Tampa Bay, the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox during a career that spanned from 1985 to 2001.

Good grief. Ok, we’ll buy this BS for now. But they’d better come up with a better story if he suddenly needs to go to Betty Ford or some other clinic after this.



And for the rest of us, PLEASE don’t start your gun cleaning session by cocking the action and pulling the trigger. Remove the bolt, open the lever, drop the slide, slip out the cylinder, unhook the barrel ... all of these ways will take down even a loaded firearm without it going off.  Naturally, emptying the magazine and clearing the chamber - twice - is the best way to start, but for those of us best suited for a career of playing kid’s games, at least opening up the gun will almost always keep it from going off.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
