I am not willing to gamble my life or the life of my loved ones betting on that I will get the “nice” kind of Home Invaders.
--Miguel G on Gunfreezone

Movie Review: Stalingrad (Russian)

Stalingrad (2013) Poster

A mixed group of Soviet troops defend a key building (and the woman inside) against Nazi forces.

Russian movies are strange.  I've seen several and this one is no different. Cultural differences leave several places where you go "Why did they do that?".  Definitely helps if you have been in the military and/or know the history of the battle. No matter what though, it makes more sense than a French film.  The dubbing is fair but half the movie is still subtitled so it's worth it to watch in the original Russian. The special effects are really good and action sequences are fantastic for a non-US blockbuster. Technical accuracy of uniforms etc. were top notch.  



Thinking of adding this one to the collection.  4/5 stars

'He Was A Good Boy'

You can guess where this is leading...
(CBS) – A 13-year-old boy was killed and six others were wounded in a drive-by shooting Friday evening in the West Side East Garfield Park neighborhood, according to fire authorities....
 Walker’s aunt, Maribell Ruiz, says the teen would have been 14 next month. She described him as a studious teen and called his death senseless.
Unfortunately, it made perfect sense to some people.  According to 2CC:
And at the advanced age of 13, he already had 5 arrests, 3 of them for felonies. PCS, PCS with Intent, PCS/Manufacturing along with misdemeanors for Battery and Assault.....this kid was obviously a dope dealer and most likely the intended target along with one or more of his hooligan friends.
And on ABC we see part of the problem:
On Friday night, police said Samuel Walker was a documented gang member, but his aunt and multiple people in the neighborhood told ABC7 that's not the case.
So iow, the kid was slinging drugs on the corner and at the very least was associated w/ local gangs, some of which probably wanted that corner or didn't like the competition.  The family is in denial over his behavior.

This is the reality of most 'gun violence' yet if you look at the comments on places like the CSGV FB page, the big bad NRA are 'terrorists' and are 'killing children'.

Alan Gura Does It Again

CCW is coming to DC.
"In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny. Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional....."

With this decision in Palmer, the nation’s last explicit ban of the right to bear arms has bitten the dust.

BATFE is Racist and Incompetent

Next up in the news, water is wet and bears defecate in the woods.

This one sentence sums it up:  “The government is creating these crimes and then choosing who it’s going to target.”

Just another alphabet soup agency that needs to be disbanded.

Movie Review: Transcendence

 Transcendence (2014) Poster

Spoiler Alert

Activists w/ philosophical issues against advanced AI research decide to take matter into their own hands and start killing the researchers. One (Johnny Depp) barely survives but is failing. His wife manages to connect various areas of research and downloads Depp into a computer. When the terrorists attack to try and delete him, she uploads him to the net where he expands his capabilities exponentially, eventually setting up base in a small town where the locals become 'Transcended', healed of all ailments due to nano-tech and connected to Depp's mainframe. His wife begins having second thoughts and agrees to sacrifice herself in order to upload a virus which will result in the crash of every computer system on Earth. 

Acting and special effects were pretty good.  Story was engaging.  I found it ironic that the terrorists, in trying to save humanity, caused the deaths of hundreds of millions of people (not mentioned in movie) w/ the collapse of all communications, power, transportation, etc..  Had they not committed their attacks/murders, the two areas of research would not likely have been connected for many years and then in a sealed, self-contained environment, not uploaded to the net. Also, even w/ their attacks, they were sloppy and inefficient, which is why the wife was driven to save her dying husband. A guy managed to smuggle in a handgun w/ bullets coated w/ radio-actives and then only put one round in him?  Why not go w/ an explosive vest and take out a bunch more of the associated scientists as well?  Of course that wouldn't have made for a good movie though.

I enjoyed it. Definitely worth a watch but probably won't add it to the collection. 3.5/5 stars.

It's Election Season In Illinois, Shiny Distractions Aplenty

In order to pull attention away from the collapsing Illinois economy, the loss of thousands of workers from emigration and leaving the workforce (although that's marked down as a decreased unemployment rate), school systems in crisis, their constantly raising fees and taxes (see a pattern yet?), the dingbats in Cook County, supported by Gov. Quinn of course, have put forward a 'non-binding' referendum to ban 'Assault Weapons' on the upcoming ballot.

I'm sure my dead grandmother will vote early and often for this.

Just to show you how stupid the legislators in Cook County/Chicago are, this is part of the referendum "require universal background checks for firearm transfers".

Um, they've already done that.  They passed a UBC law for IL along w/ CCW last year. 

Of course the measure was supported 'unanimously' by the Chicago-crats on the board and the 'Republicans' INO's voted Obama, I mean 'Present'. 

There is a poll.

Why 'May Issue' Is Inherently Discriminatory

Because those that push for it discriminate.
Yesterday, after a three-year-long investigation, the federal government appointed a monitor to oversee the police department in city of Newark, New Jersey, after the U.S. Justice Department uncovered a “pattern and practice of unconstitutional policing” in recent years—including during the years that Chicago’s police superintendent Garry McCarthy served as that city’s top cop, from September, 2006 to May, 2011....
Among the Justice Department’s findings:
  • “Approximately 75% of reports of pedestrian stops by NPD officers failed to articulate sufficient legal basis for the stop, despite the NPD policy requiring such justification.”
  • “The NPD stops black individuals at a greater rate than it stops white individuals.”
  • “In more than twenty percent of the NPD force incidents reviewed, the force as reported appeared unreasonable and thus in violation of the Constitution.”
  • “The Internal Affairs Unit (“IA”) sustained only one civilian complaint of excessive force out of hundreds received from 2007 through 2012.”
And 'Streetlight' McCarthy has brought that same level of competence to the CPD which, along w/ Cook County and the state is facing hundreds of lawsuits for blocking CCW permits.
