Pumpkin Carving, the old fashioned way

Using traditional tools to create a two sided pumpkin.


Another one of those self defense stories that "never happen"

Our gun control fanatics are always telling us their morbid fantasies, about how a woman with a gun will just have it taken from her and used on her. Here's another one from the Quad Cities area from just a few days ago.

Of course they can't (or won't) differentiate the law abiding gun owner from the criminals, so all guns are icky and all gun owners are just knuckle dragging rednecks, directly related to the self acknowledged DU criminal, and "prohibited person" Hoyt, and pictured in his often featured family reunion albums.

For the last 4 years, my Concealed Carry classes have been running about 40% female. Roughly 1/4 of the women have never touched a gun, beyond maybe a Daisy Red Rider BB Gun or a .22 rifle on Uncle John's farm when they were 12.

"MOLINE, Ill. - An Illinois woman with a concealed carry firearm was able to defend herself after a man armed with a knife forced himself into her car, police say.

A man armed with a knife forced his way into a woman's car near South Park Mall on Sunday, according to a statement from Detective Michael Griffin with the Moline Police Department.

During a struggle, the woman's arm was cut. The armed man then forced her to drive him to a rural area of Rock Island County.

Once they stopped, the victim - who had a concealed carry permit - was able to get to her firearm, according to Griffin's statement. The armed man then ran off and the victim drove herself to the hospital, where police were then called."

Good thinking and training, she waited for her opportunity and thought through what to do. Also note worthy, she didn't have to fire a shot to escape, although she was absolutely entitled to by law. So, according to the gun grabbers, this doesn't count as a "defensive gun use", since no shots were fired.

Women, all kinds on women, are the fastest growing segment of new gun owners in the country. The South Side of Chicago or the suburbs of Washington DC.

"Safety concerns spur more black women in Chicago to receive concealed-carry gun permits"

"At first glance, nothing differentiates Vernetta Robinzine from passers-by in the Beverly neighborhood on Chicago's Far South Side. On a recent evening, like most people on a workday, she donned business casual attire with a loose, bright blouse. But her daily wardrobe includes something unseen that gives her confidence.

Robinzine, 51, is a gun owner with a concealed carry license. Since she received her permit in late spring, she carries her firearm wherever she goes. "It's like a part of me now," Robinzine said with a smile."

I'm gonna guess that Harvey Weinstein or his type, would have been pushing up daisies, if he messed with Ms. Robinzine.

And from another suburban mother.

Rahm and Chicago tax payers make another contribution to the Second Amendment Foundation

Nice to see a Democrat Mayor making another big financial contributions to the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) ... again. Hopefully they'll at least send him a nice T-Shirt, size x-small, trimmed with lace.

This time, a check for $590,000 to cover the legal fees and court costs for trying to ban all shooting ranges and gun stores from the city, via "cute" zoning law changes (Ezell II, yes, it's the second time they lost on the same case.)

All because the aldermen and idiot mayor either can't be bothered to read the Constitution, court decisions they lose ... or they just don't think the law applies to them.

So far, since 2012 when they lost McDonald v. Chicago, Rahm has signed checks for a total of over $5.4 million just for the winners legal fees and court costs to the SAF, NRA and the Illinois State Rifle Assn. because he and the aldermen don't think Supreme Court decisions apply to Chicago. Worse news for tax payers, there are 5 more suits in the courts that they will also lose.

What the city's legal costs were is not available and probably won't ever be made public. But they hired three large firms to handle the cases, all with multiple $400+ an hour senior litigators. Alan Gura beat them all like a red headed rented step-mule, (to mix metaphors).

But at least they sure made it safer on the CTA and the street, didn't they?

Makes you wonder how many Fireman and Cop pensions or School Librarians all the money they piss away on a lost cause would pay for? Wouldn't it be nice, if just once, when these weasels screw up like this, it came out of their pocket instead of ours?

Prediction: The left will overreach again on gun control and get nothing legislatively

I know; "But this time it's different!"

I see the usual lefties screeching for gun control again.

And as always, they start talking about one thing "just" UBC, Bump Stock bans, magazine limits, etc. but then they all get caught up in an crazed game of "one upmanship", to see who can propose the more drastic gun control laws. "I'll see your background checks and raise you a 7 round magazine ban".

They sow the seeds of their failure again and again in exactly the same way and they can't seem to figure out why it fails. Or they don't really give a shit, as long as it works as an issue for campaign donations.

Then, when their proposed Godzilla shaped Bill doesn't get out of committee, or dies on the floor, they bemoan how they just wanted some "common sense laws, for the children" and the people that oppose it, "want more dead children".

Of course that's right after their millions of fund raising e mails go out, asking for; "Just a $3 or $5 campaign donation for the children and to support their personal gun control fight against the evil minions of the NRA".

Feinstein already has had her initial proposal expanded to include a full semi auto ban. Pelosi is making speeches about how much she hopes for a slippery slope that includes UBC and a semi auto ban, etc.

IMNSHO, Bump Stocks will be wind up being handled by the BATFE changing their decision with a new letter, not the Congress weasels, and National CCW reciprocity will quietly be part of the compromise.

"58 Dead, 500+ wounded" - In Chicago we call that July.

Instead of joining the popular exercise of jumping to conclusions before facts are in, or making demands for new laws that will have zero effect on maniacs and sociopaths, I choose to point out the obvious.

And I'm not even gonna touch on Hillary's instantaneous stupidity; "This is no time for politics ..." ... so everybody just shut up and just listen to my failed political agenda again so I can feel relevant.

Chicago racks up those kind of numbers on pretty much any warm weather month, in fact September was 57 killed and 400+ wounded. 78% were African American, 17.6% were Hispanic, 2.7% were white.

But it's much easier for the national media to focus on the current "bright shiny object", than the steady loss of minorities in cities run by Democrats for decades.

The national media seems to have an aggressive blind spot over the steady stream of murders and shootings in Chicago, Baltimore, Newark, Oakland, et. al., or choose your favorite urban center.

The facts are, according to the FBI, we are at 40 year low for violent crime, much longer if you could deduct the urban centers mentioned above that all have a common thread.

I also find it ironic that, in less than 12 hours, the FBI can confirm that the shooter had no ties to Isis, but after more than a year, the same FBI still can't rule out any ties by Trump to Russia.
