Anti-gun ‘Tampon Run’ game puts messy spin on blood dancing

... "'Instead of holding a gun, the runner holds tampons, and instead of shooting enemies, the runner throws tampons at them,' Gonzales and Houser explain in the instructions for their game, which can be played at TamponRun.com. While not exactly 'blood dancing' in the accepted understanding of the term as it applies to anti-gunners, perhaps 'virtual blood waddling' would be more fitting in this case." ...

... "'[T]he court finds that defendant [ATF] did not breach the Settlement Agreement, but did breach the covenant of good faith and fair dealing,' Senior Judge Francis M. Allegra noted, characterizing Dobyns' ordeal as 'Kafkaesque' with no-nonsense candor revealing he is not at all pleased with government conduct. 'Based on the breach of the covenant, the court finds that plaintiff [Dobyns] is entitled to damages in the amount of $173,000. The court further finds that defendant is not entitled to recover anything with respect to its counterclaim.'" ...

"Opponents of the 18-page gun control measure, who are planning an Oct. 18 rally in downtown Seattle – Murray’s front yard, as it were – might contend that it is impossible to have an 'honest' discussion with people backing I-594.

"Good free-floated hand guards make for good gun experiences. Finding a good one can be a little tough, though, and there are certain things that can really irk you, as I pointed out in my Strike Industries review. Specifically, I look for a few things when reviewing a free-floated hand guard (FFHG). First, ease of installation. If a mechanically-minded guy with a vise, action block, and a torque wrench can’t do it, that’s a big downer. Second, it needs to mate to the receiver like it was born there. Third, it should be light weight. And last, it should provide a nearly seamless top rail for accessories. I found the ODIN Works KMod Forend fits the bill across the board . . ." ...

"It was less than a year ago that the Brady Campaign ... was dealt a significant blow when their high profile lawsuit against Armslist was summarily dismissed for being the dumbest thing the judge had ever seen. The crux of their case was that Armslist had provided the meeting place for an illegal firearm that was sold and later used in a murder, and the Brady Campaign wanted to 'hold them accountable' for not stopping the sale. In the end, their lawsuit was so flawed that they had to beg the court to ignore the law to let the lawsuit continue, something that didn’t happen. Fresh off that stunning victory, the Brady Campaign yesterday launched a new lawsuit on equally tenuous grounds, this time aimed at an ammunition distributor . . ." ...

"Those of you who read the New York Times may have felt a bit shocked on September 12 if you read 'The Assault Weapon Myth' by Lois Beckett. In it, Ms. Beckett admitted something that may have made you feel like you have stepped into the Twilight Zone: 'assault' weapons – those dangerous, murder weapons about which the gun grabbers have been hyperventilating – have been nothing but a Democrat ploy to politically define a category of guns and ban the scariest-looking of the lot."

"There’s no longer any denying that the latest wave of gun control activism has passed. Following the Sandy Hook shooting everything was on the table, and the usual gun control extremists managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory once more by over reaching and proving that they really have no idea what they are doing. It’s taken two years, but it seems that not only has gun control fever gone back down to 'normal' levels (at a national level, anyway) but gun rights groups have made some major gains. With the typical gun control targets no longer proving as fruitful, I suspect that we are about to see a shift in tactics to focus on the new 'low hanging fruit' . . ." ...

"However, in recent days, an article from ProPublica and a 'study' from The Center for American Progress indicated that the gun control establishment is shifting away from advocating for semi-auto bans and towards background checks/registration. The 'coincidence' of these publications appearing days apart hints at what might be public relations scheming, rather than a genuine shift in viewpoint." ...

"With little fanfare, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2012 amended its Form 4473 — the transactional record the government requires gun purchasers and sellers to fill out when buying a firearm — to identify buyers as either Hispanic, Latino or not.

For instance as many as 9,000 African Americans are murdered every year. Ninety three percent of these are perpetrated by other blacks. In 2005, 49 percent of all homicide victims in the U.S. were black. Shouldn’t we recognize mental illness is responsible for 79 percent of recent of mass shootings?
