Monday Motes With Meanings

You gotta laugh: Video footage from February 3 at “The Range 702” in Las Vegas, Nevada. Gun range video shows a convicted felon entering a concealed carry class and attempting to steal a handgun, then attacking officers who were called to the scene and ultimately being shot to death by an officer and three attendees of the concealed carry class. When caught he brandished a screwdriver and began repeatedly stabbing a female officer in the head and neck. Officer Andrew Nguyen and three employees of The Range 702 then drew their handguns and opened fire on the culprit. The seasoned felon was struck by 14 rounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.  This guy really failed in the “victim selection” category.

It was only matter of time: A Christian politician in Finland will face a court process for speaking openly about her views on homosexuality and the Bible. Päivi Räsänen.a medical doctor who was Finland’s Interior Minister between 2011 and 2014 and a leader of the Christian Democrats, has been charged with three hate crimes against homosexuals. The Prosecutor General said she has made statements that were “derogatory and discriminatory against homosexuals” and “violate their equality and dignity”. Therefore, they would “overstep the boundaries of freedom of speech and religion and are likely to fuel intolerance, contempt and hatred”.  No freedom of speech against protected classes.

What do they know we don’t: Aside from a couple of executive orders, Joe Biden’s plans to pass major gun control legislation such as the confiscation of scary-looking rifles seems to be going nowhere fast at the moment. But there are other ways around the 2nd Amendment.  One idea is to impose a massive tax on ammunition, another scheme would require background checks for the purchase of ammunition. It is said every time a Democrat is elected, you might want to consider going out and stocking up on ammunition as a precaution. And based on the sales figures being reported by gun shops around the country, plenty of you are doing just that already.

On the same subject: Can anyone explain these .gov firearms and ammunition purchases?

  Department of Energy: approximately $50,000 worth of M-16 fully automatic rifles.(Full auto, that’s a waste of energy.)

  General Services Administration: approximately $16,000 in shotguns and Glocks. (What, that’s like 4 of each.)

  Bureau of Reclamations: approximately $697,000 for firearms and ammunition.(What the heck is the Bureau of Reclamations?)

  EPA: almost $70,000 for ammunition

  Smithsonian: approximately $42,500 for ammunition.(Gotta protect those…ewhatevers.)

  the Forest Service, National Park Service, Office of Inspector General, Bureau of Fiscal Service, as well as Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshals, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. $426,268 on hollow-point bullets. Specifically HP ammunition. (The latter three, sure, but the Forest Service, National Park Service, and Inspector General’s Office?)

  Bureau of Engraving and Printing: approximately $100,000 on firearms. (Why don’t they make their own, like they do dollars?)

  U.S. Mint: almost $180,000 for ammunition. (no wonder it’s almost a buck a shot.)

  Bureau of Fiscal Services: approximately $672,000 on ammunition and firearms (Bullets for bean counters?)
