A good primer on the history of the 2nd Amendment

I think the video is a wonderful hour long history of the 2nd Amendment. Tom did a similar talk at Phreaknic last year, which I saw making the rounds among gun bloggers and can be found here. I probably should have been one of the folks posting it considering that I’ve been attending and/or helping […]

Southern Illinois shooting complex to shut down “indefinitely”

Sad news for folks on the Illinois side of the border near St. Louis. Apparently, the budget fight that the state’s legislature is currently having that has made news because they’re refusing to pay out lotto winnings (which, yes, has resulted in lawsuits) has spread to closing of state run venues. Specifically, the World Shooting […]

Kilted to Kick Cancer: So You Want to Wear a Kilt?

Before I get into it, I want to remind people why I’m doing this. This month is Prostrate awareness month, and I’m participating in Kilted to Kick Cancer. Last year, we raised $13,000 for research, and want to beat that this year. If you’ve got some extra cash, please follow that link and tell them […]

It’s that time of year again!

Hold on… It’s already the 3rd? How did that happen?

Well, I’m sitting here in Atlanta for Dragoncon, so I’ll make this brief. As you probably remember from previous years, September is prostrate cancer awareness month, and I will be once again participating in Kilted to Kick Cancer!

Last year, we raised $13,000 to the […]

Gotta love it.

Don’t you love how you have to spend the first part of the argument with a left winger arguing that yes, Obama and the Democratic party as a whole wish to ban guns.

I had a rather lengthy Facebook thread where that was the argument.

Active Shooter Near Me

Looks like someone decided that shooting folks at the movie theater is cool thing to do, and did so down the road from me.

This is still a “developing story.” At this time, we’ve got cops surrounding the place, and there’s reports that the SWAT team is responding.

Here’s what we do know:

The shot(s) […]

Oh, this stupidity again.

A while back, I wrote about the stupidity of Metro Nashville’s opinion that they can still ban guns at concerts in parks because… uh… going to a concert isn’t recreation.

Well, the state Attorney General has put out and opinion that states that no, they can’t do that.

Nashville Metro’s Legal Director’s response? “We’re going […]

Well… I guess there is interest

Well, that’s at least the second person to ask me if there’s going to be a Bidet Shoot 3 this year, so… I guess I should try to figure something out.

Of course, it won’t be this month, since next weekend is the only weekend in June I’m not already doing something, and I’m not […]

What do we have here…

Shameless self promotion!

If you’re the kind of person interested in scifi conventions, I’m the gaming director of a convention called Hypericon on the weekend of June 19-21 in Nashville. It’s currently only $30 for weekend, which includes access to a con suite with great food for the weekend.

If you’re interested, and wish to get a hotel […]
