Bloomberg Redux

In the recent undercover firearms purchases made by Bloomberg operatives at an Arizona gun show, a lot has been said by the left and unfortunately some actual firearms owners. But what is not being said by many is, were the operatives citizens of Arizona. According to federal gun laws you must be a citizen of the state the purchase is made in to legally buy a handgun. So if indeed the Bloomberg operatives actually bought a handgun at this gun show then they are guilty of violating federal gun laws. When is a prosecutor going to grab this and run with it? Most likely never and few politicians have the balls to take on gun laws in general and when a tiny bigshot as Bloomberg is involved the odds go even further down. If you or I crossed a state line and bought a handgun and it was in the news as this has been, you or I would very quickly have a visit from those fine boys and girls from the ATF. So, does this lack of response by the USG mean that our government is too timid to take on the City of New York? This whole thing reeks. Were the filmed transactions made by an individual or a Federally regulated dealer? Were the "buyers" citizens of Arizona? Will any one call out Bloomberg over his illegal, out of jurisdiction, violation of federal laws, show boat act? Will Arizona? Maybe. Will the USG? What do you think? If the USG does get involved it will result in another violation of the Second Amendment and another nail in the coffin of freedom.

A Shoveling We Will Go...Again

I am now in the midst of another snow storm. This one is set to pound central Missouri. Currently we are near white out conditions and the temperature is in the 10 degree range and the wind is blowing 25 mph and up. The area I live in is on the border between those that are going to get 12-18 inches and those that are going to get 6-8 inches of powdery, wind driven snow. I can't imagine what the drifts are going to look like in the country. I have just completed round one of shoveling. I haven't even considered doing the shoveling at the other house yet. The city says with the expected snowfall they will be plowing a 4 freakin' feet high berm along the roads.....and the end of my driveways. Bastards! I applaud their snow removal efforts but since they claim to have the authority to fine me for pushing the snow back into the street, can't they at least clean out the ends of the thousands of driveways they fill with compacted snow? I mean I'm johnny on the spot when it comes to shoveling my drives and walks and I throw the snow back on my own property so can't they at least clear out the snow they place in my drive way? I usually end up clearing the end of my drive 3-4 times for one storm. I'm talkin' tons of compacted snow. The bastards.

Bloombergs Rats

As if Michael Bloomberg didn't have enough to do, he has now sent undercover detectives to a gun show in......Arizona! Where does he get off thinking he has any jurisdiction in Arizona? That's well out of his bailiwick. These rats are armed with concealed cameras and are baiting people into selling them guns after telling them they may not be able to pass a background check. The boys and girls at the ATF have asked Bloomie not to do this as it may interfere with ongoing investigations as well as reminding him of that whole jurisdiction thing. As a result of this and previous quasi illegal investigations by the Bloomies, many gun shows have a permit required stance. This pretty well cuts out the face to face citizen to citizen sales. Well let's see, what can we do about this? Here's an idea, keep your eyes peeled when at a gun show. If you see anyone that appears to be surreptitiously filming transactions call them out loudly, bust them on the spot. If they turn out to be reporters or even those wonderful folks at ATF, so what. Take what comes and get on with life. Just be sure to ruin their day and bring the rat bastards into the light. Oh, and this comes to mind now. Some folks think Bloomberg needs to be the freakin' President! What kind of juju are they smokin'?
