Heads Will Explode Across Chicago

Apparently the Editor at the Chicago Tribune took a day off:

How to shoot a gun if you're a kid

GAT Guns in East Dundee started offering these classes about a year ago because parents wanted to bring their kids in to shoot, manager Randy Potter said.
Another store — On Target Range and Tactical Training Center in Crystal Lake — offers a class to children ages 7 to 11 on firing .22-caliber rifles. At GAT, the children are trained on pistols.
The handwringing doesn't come until the end of the article.  I can hear the aneurisms popping in the offices of the Joyce Foundation from here.  Various anti-gun groups have equated events like this, no matter how controlled or safe, to child abuse.  My youngest just turned 7.  When the weather clears a bit more, I'll be taking him out for his first active range time.  He can't wait.

Brady Frivolous Lawsuit Fail

Another one of their lawsuits designed to harass firearm companies has failed and they're going to have to pay legal and court fees in response.  Their argument was that an online retailer should know the mental state of their customer.  They don't say how, just that they 'should'. Here's the real part though:

the Defendant’s knowledge of the risks posed by their products in the wrong hands and (v) common sense, lead to the undeniable conclusion that the Defendants knew, should have known, or knew that it was substantially certain that selling Holmes dangerous materiel would create a foreseeable risk of death or injury.
 “Defendants should have known that the accused killer posed a risk with guns, thousands of roundsof ammunition, a 100-round drum, body armor, and tear gas, as would have been evident in a traditional sales transaction involving human interaction”
So iow, bulk ammo dealers should assume that anyone buying ammo in bulk is going to go on a shooting spree and that retailers should have a detailed list of everything their customer owns.  That's their argument. This is the real mental statel of 'gun control', to assume that firearm owners are just ticking time bombs waiting to have enough stuff to go around killing people. 

And they wonder why the PLCAA was passed.  Every lawsuit the Brady's file should end this way until THEY are the ones bankrupted.   So far no mention of this on their FB page.

Karma

So someone throws a bash as a 'going away' party for a guy going to serve time in DOC.  They advertise it all over the internet.  A bunch of Chicago thugs show up and start shooting up the place.

So I'm going to take some shots in the dark on this (pun intended):
Celebrating a criminal and his lifestyle
Betting there was lots of alcohol/drugs involved (along w/ serving minors)
Gambling

No FOID's, CCW, or any form of legal possession of firearms

Anyone else see how else this can divest from the anti-gun narrative except that three of those shot will be touted as 'child victims of gun violence' w/o presenting any of the details?

Update: from a Brady email:   Show them that you care about the 48 children and teens who are shot by guns in our country every day.

Just like the poor innocent souls above.

Normal Chicago Weekend Headline


Four Dead, At Least 13 Injured in Weekend Violence 

A few of the residents are starting to get a clue instead of blaming the NRA:
Chatman’s mother, Patricia, read a poem she wrote for her son.
“I didn’t think it was right to live your life so reckless. Now I’ve got to live with this necklace,” she said.

Movie Review: Cinderella (2015)

 Cinderella (2015) Poster

Went w/ a school field trip to watch this movie and have been looking forward to it for some time. I wasn't disappointed.  This is, for all intents and purposes, a live action version of the classic 1950's Disney animated film with less focus on the mice although they're still present and semi-sentient. The visuals of this movie were jaw-drop stunning.  The evil step-mother and step-sisters you hated the moment you saw them and the sisters' screechy voices just added to it.  Cate Blanchett turned her performance of Galadriel on its head by being a heartless widow driven to advance by any means. Overall it has the same youthful innocence that the live action Peter Pan did.

About the only thing I wasn't sure about was the casting of Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother.  IMO it just didn't fit w/ the rest of the caricatures.

Definite rental for the kids and very likely a purchase.

4.5/5 stars.

Irony

Article touting poll by anti-gun group on how much people oppose CCW 'without a permit' uses a picture from a pro-CCW rally numbering about 5,000 attendees on the same day that same group was in Springfield.  

 CARRY

I just find that bizarre and encouraging at the same time,

Why they would use that picture I still can't figure out.  I mean I know that they have manipulated photos of Bloomie's Notown group's rallies numbering about 200 folks, mostly paid shills since there is no 'membership'. Baffling.

And then think about the poll itself.  CCW W/O a permit.  They're reduced to fighting CCW W/O A PERMIT.  That's how much they've lost.

Speaking of rallies and the slow collapse of gun control,  in an email received from the Brady Bunch, they tout their last 'success'... The first and only nowhere near "Million Mom March" rally in Washington DC.  15 yrs ago.  A year and a half after their  "single largest national demonstration in support of sensible laws to save kids in our nation’s history!"  the organization had collapsed, was looking at an investigation for tax fraud, and merged w/ the Brady Campaign.

More .@CSGV Slander

So a guy who's happily married and runs a pro-rights organization of hundreds, if not thousands of actual members is apparently a social misfit w/ no friends:

Ferretguy1

Unsurprisingly, their own misfits crawl out from under their bridges to continue the verbal diarrhea.

Christopher Buttner is he a pedophile

Not to far away from openly calling for firearm owners to wear some sort of symbol on their clothing so everyone can recognize a sub-human.
