Beware the 30-Magazine Clip

30 magazine clips: all ghost guns come with them standard. From :

Congresscritter Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) may no longer be the most comically clueless government hoplophobe to attack our precious Second Amendment liberties. Here is an attempt to translate the ignorant gibbering of California State Senator Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles):

Those 30-magazine clips are almost as ominous a feature as the Rep McCarthy warned us about:

These people don’t have even the vaguest idea what they are talking about, yet they have taken upon themselves the authority to determine whether you will be permitted to keep your firearms.

Starbucks: Does Banning Guns Invite Robbery?

Robbery

. It is that quiet time before the rush of Mom's and Dad's looking for their early morning caffeine jolt, and hours before the hipsters crawl out of bed to write poetry on the Mac Books their parents bought for them.

This is the time, where a Starbucks employee can drink his or her first cup of Joe, and brace themselves for the day to come.

One employee, let's call her Sarah, ran her eye over the new 'No Guns Allowed' sign hanging in the window. 'Surely, that will keep the guns out.' She thought to herself. A man dressed all in black sauntered up to the counter. He ordered a coffee, but already seemed to have the caffeine shakes. Sarah eyed him suspiciously.

When Sarah went to ring up the purchase at the cash register, the man jumped over the counter and produced a silver handgun in his right hand. 'Hey! Didn't you read the sign?' She yelled angrily at the gun brandishing villain.

Let’s regulate guns like we regulate cars

Today we’re going to do a little thought experiment and actually think this analogy all the way through.

Let’s examine the analogy completely, starting with gun ownership. Even at the sketchiest of pawn shops in America, here are the steps that I have to take to legally buy a handgun:

  1. Be over 21
  2. Fill out a 4473
  3. Pass a federal background check (NICS)
  4. Pay the shop

And that’s just the process if you live in free America. Plenty of states have additional restrictions like waiting periods and state level background checks. For example in Washington, a state with pretty decent gun laws, unless you have a WA CPL you have to wait an additional 5 days from when you purchase a handgun to when you can actually take it home. This is so the state police can make double plus sure that you’re not a badguy, despite having already passed a NICS check.

Now, here are the necessary steps you must take to buy a car:

  1. Have enough money.

Mind you, we’re not talking about driving the car, just like we’re not talking about carrying the gun. To do nothing other than buy a handgun and take it home, I have to jump through several hoops. If I’m 16 and I want to buy a car, all I need is money.

Boise police shoot dog, hit car in process

I've got some issues with how this went down.  There have been more and more dogs shot by officers in the news.  It's starting to feel like the reaction is to shoot first and ask questions later because, well, it's just a dog.

If the officer who turned and ran is in the K9 unit, he should fully know that the dog's instinct is to give chase, whether it's aggressive or playful.  He should have handled that better.

Was there no alternative than for his partner to fire (5 times?  Really???) on the animal?

So to be safe, keep my dog on leash, inside, or in the back yard; got it.  I'm sure that everyone's dog has gotten loose at one time or another.  Heck, it's even legal to have your dog unleashed on your own property.  If for whatever reason LEO's show up and enter the property, is it their duty to retreat if there's a dog?  If they turn and run, then shoot the dog when it chases them, who's to blame?

There used to be a time when I didn't worry about it much, but not any more.  I think this is a good reason for more training on appropriate escalation of force where someone's pet is involved.
