Amazong! CNN Makes An Effort To Get Sound Suppressors Almost Right

CNN Money is to be commended for an unusually fair report on ‘silencers,’ as they call Sound Suppressors.

That does not keep CNN from being among the least critical of the gun ban advocates, but it does show the outfit could get it right if they tried. So click on over for the miracle of a favorable link to CNN. The Alley will be here when you click back.

And by sundown CNN will air at least three anti-gun agitprop commentaries. Because that is what they do.

Arctic Sea Ice At 14,400,000 Km2 And Growing

Before I begin, let me point out the fact the Arctic S sea ice extent was at fourteen millin four hundred thousand square kilometers, 14,400,000 Km2, and growing yesterday morning. That is not a record for the date, but it is much more than one would expect with Asian power and industrial plants pumping out millions of tonnes of fly ash and soot, to be picked up by jet streams and given an express ride to points between the Sea of Okhotsk and Greenland.

All this, except the extent of the Asian pollution, was predicted between 1985 and 1992, along with a prediction that the next “grand climate minimum,” the next “little ice age,” would begin during the winter of 2016=2017. Which it many have. If we had an honest source of data, we would know before the first of May. Which brings up the subject of this post.

Thanks to a link left by WuChang, I see those who are supposed to keep an honest record of past climatic conditions have been caught out again.

Briefly quoting the Breitbart report linked above:

he award-winning scientist responsible for creating, collecting, and maintaining the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) data archive, John Bates, recently disclosed leading NOAA’s climate scientists violated the agency’s rules, rushing to publication data which had yet to be tested and confirmed in order to influence the outcome of the Paris climate negotiations in 2015.

For my part, this “news” is “olds” since I got on the internet in the mid 1990’s specifically for a couple of bulletin boards turned forums on subjects that interest me. One of those subjects was climate, and like many I was already aware that something was “rotten in Denmark.”

The name is interesting – but the fact that data was altered was known as early as 1995. And with our official source of climate data deliberately corrupted, it takes those of us with long memories to puzzle out what is going on. Such as the world wide heat wave of 1936, and the long and bitterly cold winters of the 1941 through 1948 period.

The forums o where professional and amateur climatologists, astrophysicists, and interested laymen shared opinion and comments are long gone, likely victims of political pressure. But there are still those of us who remember a big thermometer in the shade of a huge tree that read “one, two, five and one” to a a three year old learning his numbers.

Hopefully, somewhere in the bowels of NOAA’s offices there is an actual physical printout – or a hand written list, of climate conditions so the climate record can be restored. And also hopefully, that slow grinding mill in Washington will get around to appointing competent and disinterested administrators for NOAA and make a serious effort to restore the data.

Oregons Kate Brown: “End Gun Ownership Nwo”

I see Oregon’s Kate Brown, who had a major part in imposing Universal Background checks on Oregonians and ran the violent crime rates up, wants to “end gun violence now.” That would be interesting, that the overwhelming majority of gun crimes are committed with a stolen street gun that was beyond the reach of the law.

What Sister Kate really means is “Ban guns now, and leave Oregonians at the mercy of criminals.”

Brown will either run for reelection in 2018, or retire. Either way, it is time and past time for Oregon’s gun owning majority to persuade qualified candidates to stand for every office currently held by a gun hating Democrat. Because there is no way to cut crime with restrictive gun laws.

Bloomberg’s Gun Ban Propaganda Group Gets NBA Player for Spox

Braking News reports former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun ban propaganda machine has a new talker, an NBA player named Carmelo Anthony.

That is a ploy that has been tried before, notably by the late Handgun Control founder and one man band, Nelson Shields. Shields did nto have much luck, although I have been given to understand he left the family fortune badly diminished.

Bloomberg is one of Soros buddies, an “open borders advocagte,” an power hungry.

Bloomberg has the money to hire world class propagandists to think up new propaganda ploys and to rope in celebs. We have the votes and the facts.

If we get out and work, facts will trump filthy lucre from a scofflaw former mayor.

“What Percentage Of Gang Murders Involve Guns?”

Someone stopped by searching for “ercentage of gang homicides guns.”

First, guns are freely available to gangs and gang members, often for as little as $85 for a “police caliber” handgun with a full magazine. That factor alone would make the majority of gang related murders gun murders.

Further, the percentage of firearms facilitated gang murders varies from place to place, ranging from 80 to well above 90 percent, depending on location. Taking numbers from 35 American cities and averaging them, it appears 85 to 88 percent of gang related murders are committed with a gun.

ANTI-Gun Activists Claim Pricing Gun Ownership Out of Reach Is Not Gun Control

‘My Northwest dot com reports ANTI’s in the Washington Senate claim a bill that would price gun ownership out of the reach of all but the affluent is not “gun control.<. Briefly quoting the My Northwest report linked above:

One senator has introduced a measure that takes on the issue a different way, requiring liability insurance before someone can buy a gun.

Sen. Maralyn Chase (D-Edmonds) says people have to buy insurance for their homes, their cars, and other items, so having it for guns makes sense to her.

Chase insists her bill is not about gun control, but rather public and private protections.

After that whopper, Coats is further quoted in further lies, including the usual profession of support for the Second Amendment, I wonder if Coats intends criminals who commit almost 95% of firearms related crimes will buy liability insurance. The more so in that liability insurance will almost certainly be unaffordable – by intent.

Just how unaffordable that would make gun ownership depends, but generally, one percent of payoff value per year, or $1,000 for a mandatory $100,0000 policy would be “in the ballpark.” Obviously, a requirement for any meaningful amount of liability insurance would price gun ownership out of reach.

Bluntly, it is time for Congress to do its job and preempt the Democrats gun ban bills. And time for us to do our jobs and send ANTI-party members into permanent retirement.

Bluntly, the Republicans control the House and Senate, and President Trump says he is a friend of both the shooting community and of law and order. If The current Congress and President cannot preempt laws that send violent crime and mruder rates soaring, it is time we get a new Congress.

And if this situation continues past 208, it will be time for a new President as well.

“His Laptop Took A Bullet, So Now He’s A Gun Control Activist”

The Miami Herald reprots on someone whose laptop got in the way of a bullet, and as a result the man has the man has become a gun control fanatic.

But what the Miami Herald forgets to mention is why stray bullets were flying around to take out a laptop in the first place. Let’s take a look at the overall violent crime rate between 1960 and 2014 for a moment:

Look closely at the chart and you will see the United States violent crime rate was i a long, slow decline through 1963. Many things happened in 1963, but the only one that has any bearing on a sharp reversal of the violent crime rate was a gun control campaign that began on Thanksgiving weekend of that year.

That campaign ran from late November 1963 to December, 1968, when the Federal Gun Control Act of 1968 took effect. As you would expect, a law that is in effect for only two weeks does nto have a lot of effect on crime, but look at 1969, the first full year of GCA’68.

Between 1963 and 1973 there were five years of gun control campaigns and five years of Federal gun controls. And in 1963 the violent cimre rate was 16.2 violent crime sper 100,000 population.

After five years of a gun control drive, America’s violent crime rate was 298.4 per 100,000, a 77% increase as a result of a “moderate gun control (send the Army to confiscate all guns and make them into a monument to JFK) campaign.”

By 1973, the fifth full year of federal gun controls, the violent crime rate was 501.0, a 239% increase in violent crime in ten years of gun control publicity, and a 140 percent increase in violent crime in five years of Federal gun controls.

But that is from the relatively slow to react violent crime rate. Here is the chart for Homicide, the fastest category of crime to react to gun control laws:

As you can see, it is the same pattern, only faster to react to a restrictive gun law.

Now, if the media had been doing its job, the guy whose laptop saved him pain and suffering would be well aware of the fats – and would be a firm supporter of gun ownership and gun rights. But of course, you are unlikely to see the real facts about gun control in the Miami Herald.

Or in any other tentacle of the complicit media.

Aristotle Did Not Mention Weight Loss As A Feature Of Communism

Some 2,500 years ago a very smart amn named Aristotle took tiem off from teaching Alexander the Great the things a King should know that described the various political schemes.

In describing Communism, Aristotle’s conclusion was plain enough. If you think you have troubles, move to a country with a Communist regime, and have trouble squared. (Trouble multiplied)

Venezuelans are learning that the hard way, by living in another failed Communist regime.

But there is one benefit of Communism. The weight loss diet. If you are anxious to lose weight and think you can put up with the repression, move to a Communist State. Breitbart has some of the details at the link, above, and the Alley will be here when you click back.

And let me express my thanks to WuChang for the link. I appreciate all the help I can get.
