Quote of the Day–Joe Huffman (05/10/2013)

In the mean time an enraged narcissist who didn’t get his way with the legislature could conceivably apply the regulations to people posting YouTube videos on how to grip your pistol.

[Go read’s Joe’s post on the breakdown of how they’re attempting to apply ITAR regulations to stop our culture.  This isn’t a joke either folks, it is quite literally that simple, I just didn’t see how they could grossly apply it over anything firearms related. 

Well evidently some congress critter with a cranial rectal inversion, or more likely placing an Easter Egg, has created hell for us.  I’m not sure how we’re going to fight this one, but fight we must.  This is how they will destroy freedom and those who agree will support the tactics as long as it isn’t being used against them. –B]

SSCC Jacksonville

A 40-year-old Jacksonville police officer with a history of DUIs since her 2004 hire was charged Tuesday with five counts of driving under the influence causing damage as well as multiple hit-and-runs, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Why does this one make the whole count.

Undersheriff Dwain Senterfitt said he had fired Jones after a DUI investigation in 2011, but an arbitrator reinstated her. Senterfitt said he is frustrated she was rehired and is now under investigation a third time.

That’s right, you can’t fire corrupt cops who disobey the law.

Because a DUI is only a problem when the person in question isn’t a cop.

The Best Publicity in the World…

This has to be the biggest piece of publicity for an item ever created yet it didn’t even come from the company that created it.  Instead it came from our own government.

The Department of State, Bureau of Political Military Affairs, Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance, Enforcement Division (DTCC/END) is responsible for compliance with and civil enforcement of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2778) (AECA) and the AECA’s implementing regulations, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 C.F.R. Parts 120-130) (ITAR). The AECA and the ITAR impose certain requirements and restrictions on the transfer of, and access to, controlled defense articles and related technical data designated by the United States Munitions List (USML) (22 C.F.R. Part 121).

The DTCC/END is conducting a review of technical data made publicly available by Defense Distributed through its 3D printing website, DEFCAD.org, the majority of which appear to be related to items in Category I of the USML. Defense Distributed may have released ITAR-controlled technical data without the required prior authorization from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), a violation of the ITAR.

It’s worth noting that there is an exemption that Defense Distributed falls under but the bad news, for the government anyway, this will have the opposite effect by causing more people to grab it than you desire.

If/When I receive a take down notice validating the position of the State Department I will have no choice but to pull it.  Tonight I will be burying it behind a page that will require you to state that you are a US Citizen to download it under penalty of perjury.  I’ve already added a line disclaimer stating as much.  You can still get the files through this post.

Honestly I think this is a bullshit call and is merely an attempt to instill fear in the people and only serves to delay the dissemination of information.  Doubly so when you consider the ATF and Eric Holder violated ITAR during Fast and Furious.  No, you can’t stop the signal.

Quote of the Day–A Girl and Her Gun (5/9/2013)

For all their concern, not a single one of them has expressed an ounce of sympathy to me. I dare say neither my brother nor I matter to them at all. But, they will include his death in their numbers to justify how evil guns are. They will use his death as one in a long line of emotional stories to manipulate the emotions of others and frankly that pisses me off. The only time this “friend” has ever spoke to me about my brother’s death was today and that was all of 5 words. The rest of the 6 paragraph email was about how wrong I am and how guns are bad and I should be sharing my brother’s sorry as a cautionary tale. Outside of the “I am thinking of you” sentence the rest was about the evil I am spreading(albeit probably out of being so naive) and how if we can save just one life…blah, blah, blah. She has not bothered to stay in contact with me, so she doesn’t know that I was attacked or that guns play a vital role in keeping my life safe, but of course my life doesn’t matter. My life isn’t part of the plan. What I do day to day has not mattered to her at all. Just today. Just the day Allen died. Her line saying “thinking of you” just doesn’t feel sincere for some reason.

A Girl and Her GunMay 8th

[First go read her whole post.  It’s an enlightening view of the behavior of those on the other side.

It’s what we all knew, but they took the blood dancing and grief cutting to a whole new level.  Seriously what the hell was the point of that woman sending that email other than to cause pain, grief, and misery.  I am of the firm opinion that people like that are eternally miserable and insist on spreading their misery to others.

One of these day’s I’ll get around to writing up some of the other reasons I haven’t been writing as much lately, but suffice it to say, I don’t like spreading grief, pain or worry.  There’s a little over 6 months left in this year and I’m sure I can figure out some way to rock the rest of it like a boss.  I’m waiting for the all clear and then I’ll explain why.  Some in my inner circle know, but honestly I don’t want everyone and their mother worrying about it.

All I have to say is that overall her response is why I love A Girl.  She was considerably kinder than I would have been had someone send some pile of garbage like that to me.  Hell I remember fighting the urge to bitch slap the woman who told me that allowing my dad to undergo his cancer treatment is what killed him.  Had I been a better son I would have convinced him to do alternative therapy…  She knew nothing about when it happened, what cancer it was, nothing, she just heard my dad passed away from cancer while discussing treatment types.  She took that moment to try and cut into me and lay grief on me as if I was responsible.  After the 10 minute frothing rant was done where I chewed her up and spit her out verbally in front of a room of 20 people.  So loud mind you that no one else could hold a conversation she got up and walked out.  She didn’t speak to me for the rest of the weekend and everyone who saw it didn’t dare broach the subject of what exactly was said because it was obvious it was inappropriate.  I don’t think she even dared to call out my call sign on the radio for even normal traffic.

Some people love misery and they take great pride in making other people miserable.  If you try and make me miserable, I will drag you down, chew you up, spit you out and say **** you while sporting the bird.  Why?  Because I have no need for someone that miserable when I have an awesome family and an awesome group of friends.  Real friends that will support me at the drop of a hat, even if we’ve never met face to face.  The don’t send me an email out of the blue claiming to care while trying to say that I was somehow to blame for their decisions.  That I’m some how to blame for their decided use for an inanimate object.

And when you look at life when you have family and a group of friends like I’ve got; life’s pretty damn good! –B]

Long day’s at work lately and I’ve been busy starting up the last few sites on the server.  No I didn’t forget.

SSCC Orange County

Another officer trying out to move to IMPD.

An Orange County deputy was arrested for DUI late Sunday night after he rear-ended another car.

The Florida Highway Patrol said Deputy Kevin Meyer was in uniform driving an unmarked sheriff’s office truck.

Why is this one on the list? 

According to Orange County sheriff records, this was not the first accident that Sgt. Meyer has been involved in while driving a patrol vehicle.

In 2006, he received a verbal reprimand for losing control of the vehicle and causing an unknown amount of damage.

He’s on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.  Interesting, LNI has a mandatory drug test for any work related incident yet he refused to blow.  Why didn’t they just fire his ass?

State Sponsored Criminal: Kevin Meyer

Because always make sure if you’re going to get smashed, do so while wearing your uniform and in a vehicle owned by the taxpayers.

Quote of the Day – Barry Snell (5/8/2012)

I’ve come to realize after the Sandy Hook shooting that the reason we can’t have a rational gun debate is because the anti-gun side pre-supposes that their pro-gun opponents must first accept that guns are bad in order to have a discussion about guns in the first place. Before we even start the conversation, we’re the bad guys and we have to admit it. Without accepting that guns are bad and supplicating themselves to the anti-gunner, the pro-gunner can’t get a word in edgewise, and is quickly reduced to being called a murderer, or a low, immoral and horrible human being.

[And that right there is the honest truth.  Those on the other side of the “debate” aren’t interested in debate.  The view us as the devil incarnate and that our rights don’t matter.  To them we aren’t human, we’re sub-human, merely because we own an inanimate object that many of us use for self-defense.

It’s why over time I have lost just about all patience with those who would take away our rights. –B]

Freedom of Speech and the Right to Arms…

I am morally aligned with the following quote from John Adams:

If men through fear, fraud or mistake, should in terms renounce and give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the great end of society, would absolutely vacate such renunciation; the right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of Man to alienate this gift, and voluntarily become a slave.

I also consider the right to self-defense and with it the right to keep and bear arms an essential natural right.  It is for that reason I am hosting the Defense Distributed file pack (by clicking this link you certify that you are a US Citizen within the United States under penalty of perjury) here(Upon advice from good friends, this has been removed, just see this quote for details.) (warning almost 500MB).  For details on why only US citizens may download these files, please see this post.

Many people seem to be lost on the real meaning of the Liberator Pistol.

That pistol is not meant to be a replacement for your standard side-arm.  I honestly don’t see 3d printing replacing standard firearms production.  The point of the Liberator is allow those to arm themselves that would otherwise be rendered defenseless by their government.  It is not designed to be used repeatedly over and over, it’s use is designed much the same as this pistol.

300px-M1942_liberatorYou have one shot.  It is not to be used at a far distance.  It is designed as a last-ditch when you have no other alternative.  One shot you think may not be effective, but that man you just killed sent by the state who was trying to kill you, he has a gun too right?  One much more effective than the one you just used.

The point of the Defense Distributed’s pistol is to at least give a tool to help better even the odds for the person being abused by the state and prevented from defending themselves.  It is not a magic talisman, it is merely a tool.  A tool which can help level the playing field and give a disarmed people a fighting chance to save themselves.

There’s a reason our federal tyrants are so afraid of something like this.  It guarantees that no matter what they do, the people will always have access to some sort of arm.

I will maintain that link and create alternate servers if necessary to do so.  It is a natural right of the people to be armed for their own defense.  Any person who opposes that right is not my friend, but my enemy wishing for my enslavement or death and I will fight back. As Linoge said, “You Can’t Stop the Signal.
