Christmas presents from my dad
Apparently, it’s illegal for folks to carry pepper spray in Canada. Some folks with clear heads are trying to correct that. You’d think that would be a no brainer, right? Nope.
Are the detractors stating that bad guys might use the sprays to attack the innocent?
Maybe they’re concerned that folks might over react and spray someone because they got into an argument?
The argument against is that legalizing pepper spray is evil and wrong because “places the onus on women to defend themselves rather than focusing on addressing and preventing gender-based violence,” and is “offensive to women.”
That’s right. It’s evil because we should just teach boys not to rape, and then we’ll live in a magical world of peace. Oh, and it’s offensive to think that you might want to be prepared if some droog’s treatment doesn’t work.
I can’t even.
I now have a TV that has no buttons on it, the remote has no number pad, but I can control it with my phone.
Living in the future is weird.
So… apparently there was a shooting yesterday at an intersection I’m at almost daily at the beginning of rush hour. For reasons still unknown, a misunderstood gentleman with multiple active warrants decided to fire from his car at the car next to him, striking the driver who’s now in critical condition.
This intersection is a few blocks from me. My bank is at that intersection. My wife was late to our TaeKwonDo class because she left about 30 minutes after the incident, and got stuck in the traffic back up caused by the investigation.
The area of town I live in is generally considered a nice working class area. Not the richest neighborhood by a good bit, but an area where folks don’t think twice about letting there kids walk down the street, etc.
Oddly enough, I was just telling someone that there’s no where where crime doesn’t happen, just where the percentages are different. Just a friendly reminder to keep your eyes open out there.
In no particular order…
That’s about all I have time for right now.
Haven’t shot it yet, but I’ve been gathering parts for this for the last few months and it’s finally range ready:
Hopefully I’ll be able to take it out on Friday.

[Since a number of folks shared this post I made on Facebook, I feel like I should repost it here]
If you’re wondering why pro-gun folks are so mean and do everything that they can to stop “common sense” measures like assault weapons bans*, look no further than Massachusetts. They’ve had an AWB that mirrored the Clinton era federal AWB on the books basically since the federal one expired.
The state AG recently decided to officially interpret that law radically different than anyone in the 20 years of its existence has done so. To the point that she’s basically declared any semi-auto rifle or pistol to be illegal in her state. The good news is that she promises to not go after anyone that owned said items before she made this declaration. Of course, this isn’t her saying “oh, that one’s legal,” it’s her saying “we won’t prosecute.”
So… without a single piece of legislation being passed, thousands of people woke up to discover that they now possess items that very well could get them hit with a felony charge.
Yeah… that’s reason to trust the other side.
*there’s lots of reasons that AWBs are stupid on their own merits, but that’s not the point here.
