You cannot long rule an armed people, right? Well, EO 13662 has something to say about that:
Do you have a Russian manufactured AK style rifle or shotgun on order, or were you thinking about purchasing one? Not any more! Today, the U.S. Department of The Treasury has announced the president’s latest executive order (Executive Order 13662),slapping more sanctions on Russia for the Ukraine crisis. Today, the OFAC (The Office of Foreign Assets Control) is introducing sanctions targeting specific persons or entities. Among the names listed in these sanctions is one very familiar to almost all of us gun owners: Kalashnikov Concern and Izhmash R&D. Of course, Kalashnikov manufactures the original AK variants and Izhmash manufactures AK variants under the Saiga name. Below is the exact wording of this specific line item in this sanction:
Yeah, I think you’re going to want to read the rest of that, and maybe click the link.
Over the last few days, I’ve heard a few things that gave me those “Really? Fucking puhleeze” moments.
Let’s start with this one:
A Florida jury awarded a widow $23.6 billion in punitive damages in her lawsuit against tobacco giant R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, her lawyer said.
Cynthia Robinson claimed that smoking killed her husband, Michael Johnson, in 1996. She argued R.J. Reynolds was negligent in not informing him that nicotine is addictive and smoking can cause lung cancer. Johnson started smoking when he was 13 and died of lung cancer when he was 36.
Two things here. 1, that warning has been on the cigarette pack since before this dude was born, right? The consumer had been warned, and the ads, and TV shows, and medical warnings, and all that shit have been there forever. And B, there is no way in fuck that this person could have been reasonably expected to make that kind of money within his lifetime even had those warnings not been in existence since God was a boy… WTF? This is insane.
And speaking of insane, What about the fellow that… wait a minute:
A man serving a 15-year sentence for the 2010 robbery of a Newport, Delaware, pizzeria has filed a lawsuit against the restaurant, claiming the employees used “unnecessary” force against him when they tackled him and beat him after he produced a handgun and was taking money that did not belong to him.
Nigel Sykes made his way through the back door of Seasons Pizza just before 8 p.m. on Nov. 30, 2010. In his complaint, which was filed last year from prison, Sykes openly admits that he robbed the pizzeria, almost making out with $140.
But as Sykes neared the door to make his getaway, employees of the pizza place banded together to stop him from getting away. Apparently one employee grabbed Sykes from behind while other employees wrestled the gun from his hands. An accidental discharge occurred, narrowly missing an employee and striking a trash can instead. The bullet hole ridden trash can still remains in the restaurant to this day, marked with the name of the employee who was almost hit by the blazing bullet.
Really? WTF has this country come to? There is a lesson to be learned from this, and that is S3. Shoot, Shovel, Shut up. If this actually goes anywhere, where will it go from there? Is this the “wealth redistribution” program they want? What, if you’re in such bad shape you have to rob someplace for money to survive on, then the government will take that money from your victim and give it to you anyway?
Okay, got that off my mind.
Share your thought as to the meaning. This has been around for about 6 years in one form or another, but this is the one I have seen over the last few weeks. I’M not going to say what it says to me, your comments as to the meaning please:
Much sound and fury, signifying nothing.
And he’s as fed up as any of us!
Ovomit and it’s regime are why the 2A was included.
