The Lie That Just Won’t Die

Just in case you entertained the thought that the Fox News channel was a conservative media outlet. They are not. At best, they are center-slightly left. Compared to the other bullshit networks, that makes them look like crazy right wing extremists, but the reality is otherwise.

Right now Fox has 3 talking head newsbabes on, arguing over whether an autistic 14 year old should be suspended over a drawing he made. Probably of a gun or something, I didn’t catch the whole story. Talking head blond is arguing that Zero Tolerance “levels the playing field” and makes all kids equal, regardless of age or physical/mental ability. Not a single one of them realizes that Zero Tolerance is a total draconian crock of shit designed and enacted only to allow far-left leaning school administrators to do their jobs without a single lick of common sense. “Conservative” Fox News, “fair” and “balanced”. And they couldn’t buy themselves a clue if they were covered in $100 bills.

A 14 year old autistic boy was suspended and charged with a felony over a picture he drew in school. The child’s mother said he was in a special needs class when he drew a picture of two stick figures, one of which was holding a gun.

The right response, of course, is “What kind of numbnuts chickenshit assholes run this school system? All the school systems? And since when is free expression through art considered terrorism and not a First Amendment expression? Zero Tolerance is liberal bullshit and always has been. And now they’re busting autistic kids? They oughta be flogged right down to the bone.”


But onto the other never ending lie ...



Fox News EXCLUSIVE:

Toy Gun Sold in U.S. Can Easily be Converted to the Real Thing



Here we go again!!

Felons, illegal immigrants and all others banned from buying a gun in the United States have a new alternative if they’re looking to get their hands on a firearm: Just buy a toy.

A FoxNews.com investigation reveals that a popular recreational pellet gun can be converted easily to a real semi-automatic weapon. And while the federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is already aware of the issue, these “toys”—new, top-of-the-line airsoft rifles—continue to be sold throughout the country.

When the ATF seized a shipment of 30 of these guns in October from a port in Tacoma, Wash., it said they could be “readily convertible” to machine guns. But gun experts called that claim absurd and said the ATF was overstepping its bounds.

Now one of those critics is reversing his position, saying at least one airsoft manufacturer has taken the quest to be authentic a little too far.

“The airsoft can be converted to an AR-15,” firearms manufacturer Leo Gonnuscio told FoxNews.com after testing the make and model of airsoft guns seized by the ATF.

Having concluded that several other airsoft guns could not be converted to fire real ammunition, Gonnuscio said he was surprised to find that he was able to to transform this particular gun to the real thing —and with “minimal work,” because its bottom half, or “receiver,” is so similar to an AR-15’s.

To make the airsoft receiver function just like an AR-15’s, Gonnuscio said, “All you have to do is drill one hole.”

And once that’s out of the way, the rest is even easier. The AR-15 receiver is the only part of the semi-automatic rifle that is given a serial number, and is the only part that is regulated. All the remaining parts of the real thing can be purchased by anyone – any kid, criminal or terrorist.

But as semi-automatic weapon, Gonnuscio said, “It may not last forever, but they’ve got a gun to get the job done that they were assigned to do, and nobody knows the wiser.”

The ATF has made no reported moves to regulate or seize any more of the airsoft guns, which continue to be sold in stores around the country, and it appears to be bowing to critics and reconsidering its stance on the guns’ convertibility.

“We’re having to take a serious look at this, so it’s just something that we’re reviewing, and I’m hoping we’ll have some information that we can make available to the public certainly very soon,” ATF spokesman Drew Wade told FoxNews.com.

But firearms expert Len Savage said the ATF is taking a “serious look” at the wrong issue—or, more specifically, the wrong part of the gun.

The reason it’s possible to make these airsoft receivers function as real receivers is that all an AR-15 receiver does is hold the gun together, Savage said. So with enough gun knowledge, almost anything can be made into a receiver.

“There’s a line of AR-15 firearms out there where the lower (the receiver) is made entirely of injection molded plastic … It could be made of cardboard and scotch tape,” he said.

What a crock of shit.

I ran several posts a few months back on this very subject. I contacted the damn company and they had their guys try and fit real parts to the toy receiver. Result? The parts didn’t fit. It was far more than “just drilling one hole”. The internals could not be made to fit or function, period.

And if it IS the case that “almost anything” can be made to function as an AR-15 receiver, what happens now? Will 4x4 hardwood timbers be banned? Will duct tape be required to come with a serial number? Will we need Class III permits to buy our daughters a My Little Pony doll? Give me a frickin break.

If these guys, “firearms expert” Len Savage and “firearms manufacturer” Leo Gonnuscio, are correct, then let’s see what they built. Show me the gun, show me the steps, show me the thing firing. And do it all with “minimal effort” as the law demands, even if that “minimal effort” is 8 hours in a machine shop run by a gunsmith as the interpretation of the law someitimes actually allows. Otherwise STFU.

Leonard Leo Connuscio works for Kind Mountain Gunworks in Cornelius Oregon, where he is known for his work on H&K firearms.
Gun maker Len Savage has been in trouble with BATFE before, and felt at the time that the government was getting even with him for some court testimony of his that they didn’t like. Is what we’re reading here today his attempt to get back in the fed’s good graces? I’d say it was a definite possibility. Which makes his testimony quite suspect ...

AND FOX NEWS DID NOT LOOK INTO EITHER OF THESE GUYS IN THE SLIGHTEST.

Fair and Balanced? Not really. Actually Conservative and pro-2A? Not in your wildest dreams.

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
