Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
I see that things are so good in America that the Precedent can spend his time pushing for a new way to rank colleges. I’m glad all those troubles in the Middle East have been taken care of, too.

Along with Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the NSA and IRS imbroglios.

Just talked to Best Man who related an amusing anecdote.

His state rep -- who thinks that OH needs “more common sense gun control” had a townhall meeting last night in Kent. He said that normally these meetings attract 1-2 dozen folks; last night more than a hundred showed-up at a large coffee shop.

During the course of the meeting, said rep asked if anyone who was legally carrying would be willing to unload their weapon and place it on the table in front them. (She’s done this sort of thing before, so a number of attendees were appropriately prepared.)

42 individuals placed 65 weapons on the tables. Best Man had his normal carry weapon -- S&W 340 PD -- and his S&W 500 in a shoulder holster…which caused quite a stir. šŸ˜‰

State rep was so concerned with the number of weapons displayed, she (apparently) had her minion call the local gendarmes to check everyone’s CCWs. LEOs showed-up and Best Man was hassled over the 500 by typical cops who don’t know the law they’re paid to enforce. Fortunately, Best Man was prepared with copies of all relevant codes.

Unsurprisingly, no illegally armed scofflaws were identified; meeting did not last long after the po-po departed.

Heeeeeee!

Don’t know her position on voter ID, but would be surprised if your (and my) assumption in that regard were incorrect. Also doubt she’d treat her fellow legislators with the same disrespect she showed toward her constituents the little people.

Because “fsck you, that’s why”.

One of the cops wanted to know why Best Man owned a 500 and was told that was none of his business. Said goon than tried to intimate it was not considered a handgun and could be subject to confiscation; pertinent federal and state codes were waved in unionized thug’s face.

(It did not escape the attention of the CCW folks that the officer appeared to be blithely unconcerned with being an arrogant statist bully in the presence of so many guns.)

CDC Gun Violence Study’s Findings Not What Obama Wanted

The White House asked the Centers for Disease Control “to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.” We’re pretty sure that what the CDC found wasn’t what the White House was looking for.

What that study revealed, though, does not fit in with the media-Democrat message.

“Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals,” says the report, which was completed in June and ignored in the mainstream press.

So much for that “conversation” on gun violence.

Paddy --

Thanks for the link.

When I told ChipPerkyK about Best Man’s town hall experience re being questioned about why he needed such a large caliber gun, she told me if she were ever asked such a question that, being a woman and all, her response would be, “I’m compensating for my tiny penis.”

It’s amazing I found a wife so perfect for me. šŸ˜‰
