His is something sci fi if it’s more powerful than a 44 mag.

Here’s the technical details as specified by L. Neil:

  • 4 times as powerful as a .44 Magnum projectile
  • Half the size of a Smith & Wesson Model 29
  • Can be constructed by unskilled labor using manual tools in 60 minutes with 5 bucks worth of materials
  • Very durable if built from steel or titanium
  • If made from plastic, is disposable and undetectable by metal detectors

Most of the “sci-fi” (pronounced “skiffy”) type devices (lasers, railguns or coilguns, or plasma projectors) that people are building at home are either way larger than a Model 29, or way less powerful, and almost always cost more than 5 bucks to construct. Also, they all require quality tools and a working knowledge of electronics. Plus, the schematics for such devices often are multi-page, considering the details involved.

Most if not all of them are not at the point where they can be used as actual weapons, as described in L. Neil’s article.

Speaking of weapons, do you know what L Neil is referring to in Sunday’s article? [1]

I’d like to know the details myself. It sounds like some sort of 12-gauge pistol, or several .410 shotgun barrels arranged in a pepperbox configuration.

Dear Mike —

I greatly enjoyed what you wrote for us today[1]. I love philosophy related specifically to hardware. Wish I were confident that an AR-15 drum magazine would be reliable.

I’ve read that drum magazines in general lean towards unreliability. I haven’t had any personal experience with them (yet).

I hated the Beretta. No first-hand knowledge about the P320. You know me; I’m not fond of 9mm in general, although I have some.

I’ve never fired any of Beretta’s weapons, nor any of SIG’s. I am willing to give them a tryout, though. (I am definitely in “try before I buy” mode where firearms are concerned these days.)

The 9mm of today isn’t the 9mm that Paul Mauser created in 1902. People have been killing other people with it for over 100 years now, so it’s not entirely bad.

An interesting twist is that the eco-fascists’ insistence that ammo manufacturers stop using lead (a lot of them are also victim disarmers, so this was an attempt to shut down the ammo industry) has caused some ammo companies to produce solid-copper projectiles.

Since copper is considerably lighter than lead, putting the same powder charge behind it as you would behind a slug with lead in it is going to yield significantly higher muzzle velocities.

What was the formula for kinetic energy, again? 1/2 x m x v^2

(The Soviet-era steel-core ammo was an attempt by the Soviets to save a few rubles, and also yielded higher muzzle velocities, such that the F-Troopies tried to ban it as “armor-piercing.”)

I also wanted to tell you that I believe the Glock 22 may be the finest sidearm ever in produced by Mankind. Mine is actually a G23 Gen4, and it is my constant companion.

I am also wanting to try out the Springfield XD, the Arsenal Strike One, among others.

I also share your view “Of course they’re weapons if war, you retarded dirtbag — a war against me that you started and continue to wage! What else did you think James Madison had in mind?”

Nice Coxe quote, too.

Madison in Federalist Paper #46 is good, as well as Thomas Jefferson’s stuff.

Mike,

Just declare yourself to be a sanctuary ‘citizen’ and you will be exempt from all of Keller’s crap. (BTW, I like your name for him.)

The stores can declare themselves to be sanctuary businesses and can keep using plastic bags.

That reminds me — I need to pick up a couple of 80% AR-15 lowers (one for 5.56 x 45 mm caliber, and another for 7.62 x 51 mm caliber).

I want at least some of my weapons to be the way Keller & Co want their voters — undocumented.

What Keller and his fellow eco-fascists don’t realize is that “single-use” plastics can have multiple uses — cleaning out litter boxes, tossing trash, caching items for later use, etc.

Once Upon a Time, I Proposed a Skit . . . .

Filed under: Dark Side, entertainment, Humor, Media, Politics, Principles, Viewing — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 8:54 AM (08:54)

Back in the 1990s, a few of us Old Drunken Old Irrvelivent types were talking about potential skits for our public-access television presence (The Weekly Sedition, New Mexico’s Consumer Advocate, etc.).

One of the ideas that I came up with was to have two people sitting side by side at a table or desk, wearing black BDU-type shirts, black balaclava-type face masks, and black K-pot-type helmets. Something like this (minus the embroidery, web gear, weapons and chest plate) —

On the front of one of the helmets, there would be painted a rather conspicuous donkey. On the other, an elephant.

While sitting there on camera, our two TV stars would crack jokes and reminisce about how much fun it was to go after church groups, people wanting to be left alone, gun show promoters, and other “undesirables,” using lethal force, explosives, armored vehicles, and airstrikes, etc.

Such a skit might be considered “tasteless” (especially by the “You can’t say that!” crowd), but seriously, folks? How can signing off on such behavior, even implicitly, in the most roundabout fashion, be considered “tasteful” ?

Balderas and Lujan-Grisham, Not Sheriffs, the True Lawbreakers

Filed under: Politics, Principles, Resistance, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:30 PM (18:30)

Recently, Attorney General Hector Balderas sent a letter to 26 county sheriffs stating that, “As law enforcement officials . . . we do not have the freedom to pick and choose which state laws we enforce,” in reference to the “universal background checks” mandated by the newly-passed Senate Bill 8.[1],[2]

So why is that Balderas is himself choosing to ignore existing State law, specifically Article II, Section 6 of the Constitution of the State of New Mexico:[3]

No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.

Maybe I missed the amendment to the State Constitution that repealed Article II, Section 6? I don’t remember seeing such an amendment on the ballot during the 2018 election.

Never mind that actual criminals and terrorists won’t bother at all to go through a background check through a federally-licensed dealer, as mandated by SB 8. They’ll steal them, or get someone else to buy them, or whatever. You see, they have discovered this massive loophole in SB 8 (and other such laws) called “breaking the law.”

Balderas also said that “the taxpayers of your city or county assume the financial risk of your decision to impose your personal views over the law.”

How much liability will Balderas, Lujan-Grisham, or the legislators who pushed SB 8 assume should someone denied a firearm under color of SB 8 be injured or killed after the fact, say by a deranged ex-spouse?

Most likely they will assume zero liability (don’t bother trying to sue them on this — they will invoke “sovereign immunity”[4]) and skate away from any responsibility. After all, it wasn’t one of the Political Class that was killed or maimed, so who cares, right?

Most likely they will assume zero liability — If you sue them on this as they deserve, they’ll invoke “sovereign immunity” — and avoid any responsibility. After all, it wasn’t one of the political class that was killed or maimed, so who cares, right?

Mike,

It’s worse than that, neither MLG nor Balderas have a bond so they are NOT governor and attorney general, respectively.

Dana —

Thank you for your input.

I fully support ejecting both Baldy and Loogie-Gruesome from their present offices, and barring them from being seated in any other office.

Still, I recommend reading Down By Law, by the late, great Victor Milán before filing any litigation.

Santa Claus on “Benevolent Government” — Ron Paul’s 2017 Christmas Message

Filed under: Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 10:39 PM (22:39)

Ron Paul
Friday, December 22, 2017 at 7:35am

Government is not Mother Teresa.

It’s not “caring,” or “compassionate,” or “humanitarian.”

It doesn’t “help” the poor . . . . It multiplies them.

It doesn’t “run the economy” . . . . It destroys it.

It doesn’t “spread freedom” . . . It squashes it.

Government is violent force.

Either that force is chained down by a Constitution, or like a fire, it’ll spread and burn down everything in its path.

Rex’s Latest Inanity

Filed under: Blogging / Writing, Philosophy, Politics — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 6:04 AM (06:04)

OK, folks, I’m writing to comment upon Rex May’s latest bit of inanity to “grace” the e-pages of The Libertarian Enterprise

http://ncc-1776.org/tle2013/tle735-20130825-02.html

Whatever TLE readers think of Rex’s cartooning talents, let’s face it – his abilities with creating content in the prose format are . . . somewhat lacking.

In fact, they’re mostly copy-and-paste jobs from other people’s blogs and sites. The article linked to here is a prime example of this.

In the first paragraph of last week’s “article,” he just about brags about his emulation of the Joe Biden’s research and writing techniques:

“This could get complicated, so bear with me. First, I did THIS POST a few days back, and note that I didn’t write it—It’s mostly a reprint from John Craig’s blog, HERE. That’s clear? Okay. Now, Vulture of Critique has reacted very cleverly and incisively to John’s clever and incisive post which I cleverly and incisively reblogged, thus”

By the way, this is how Obama created Obamacare. He didn’t develop it on his own – he simply copied and pasted it over from Romney’s plan in Massachusetts, courtesy of Jon Gruber, the MIT economics professor who helped Romney with it in 2005 / 2006.

Thus I ask the staff and readers of TLE :

Is this sort of thing really necessary?

What exactly is the mission, the raison d’etre, for TLE ?

How does publishing copy-and-paste jobs from a white nationalist / conservative camp follower further that mission?

Is TLE jumping the shark?

WTF?! (TLE LTE)

Filed under: Humor, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:39 AM (05:39)

Current mood: cranky

To: Ken Holder, L. Neil Smith

Neil / Ken –

Just now (Saturday, 6 October @ 1:15 AM), I saw the message in my inbox that TLE #691 was up on the web, so I went to check it out.

What did I see when I scrolled down a bit?

A cartoon by Rex May of Romney spanking Obama like a little kid.

I was under the impression that TLE was above this sort of WWE-style cheerleading for the DNC-vs-RNC dance of death that plagues us every two years.

When the (fascist) Democrat fights dirty and cheats, we’re supposed to jeer, yet when the (socialist) Republican pulls the same sort of dirty tricks, we’re supposed to cheer. Because, we all know, the Republican is the “lesser of two evils” good guy.

Anyone who has been reading TLE and similar media outlets for any length of time has no doubt seen numerous examples of stupidity, evil and insanity instigated by Republicans. But they’re the “lesser of two evils” bunch, correct?

For what it’s worth, I watched what’s been politely called a “debate” and saw the two clowns stammering out their “talking points” while making excuses for their track records and trying to score points on the other with witty one-liners.

Most of these one-liners were the same old, tired bits that we’ve all heard before from them, courtesy of the lamestream snoozemedia.

Still, I was quite amused that gun-grabber and health-care socializer Slick Willard had the audacity to talk about “free enterprise” and invoke the Declaration of Independence.

This is the same Slick Willard who supported TARP as signed by Bush, supported cap-and-trade for CO2 emissions, supported the GM bailout . . . . Need I go on?

About Mittens’ earlier promises to “repeal and replace Obamacare” – last Wednesday night he revealed exactly what he wants for the “replace” part of the scam – RomneyCare as implemented in 2006 in Massachusetts.

Here’s the funny part about this nonsense: he implied that he wants RomneyCare to replace ObamaCare, yet RomneyCare is what Jon Gruber (the MIT economics professor who helped RMonster put together the plan in Boston) pitched to the Obama Administration in 2009 as a template for Obamacare.

Meet the new bullshit, same as the old bullshit.

At first I was thinking that this was a bait-and-switch scam, but it’s more like the shell game that con artists play on the street – the ball, which was something like free-market health care, was nowhere to be found under any of the shells.

OK, this is the part where Rex starts behaving as a Romney-roid (think hemorrhoid, minus the rationality and principles) by screaming that I must want Obama re-elected, “If your not with us, your with Obama!!!!” that sort of thing.

Bring it on.

And if this sort of thing continues, then it’s probably time for a new front-page cartoonist on TLE. Let Rex peddle his Romney-porn somewhere else.
