Happy Almost Friday Day, GN; owl be very glad when this week is over.

This is the first time I’ve seen burglary suspects’ descriptions include their underwear:

The first suspect is described as a black man in his late teens to 20s with a slim build, gray/brown boots, black pants, black hooded sweatshirt, orange underwear and white gloves.

The second suspect is also described as a black man in his late teens to 20s with a slim build, royal blue sneakers, gray sweatpants, black hooded sweatshirt, green/tan boxers and white gloves.

The third suspect is a black man in his late teens to 20s with a slim build, black and white sneakers, black pants, black hooded sweatshirt, royal blue underwear, and white gloves.

And then there’s this week’s Florida Man:

MIAMI — A homeless man with no arms is accused of stabbing a tourist from Chicago early Tuesday in Miami, police said.

Jonathan Crenshaw, 46, is accused of holding a pair of scissors with his feet to stab Cesar Coronado, 22, The Associated Press reported.

Criminy.

Hi, Fatwa -- happy Thursday, GN. I’m with you, Fatwa, on being glad when this week is done. Lately, M-F seems to be getting longer and longer.

Thanks for your impressions and information yesterday, Mac. I was really curious to see what you thought of the equipment.

Only in Texas: Pecan Pie Vending Machine. A 24-hour vending machine restocked daily with homemade full-sized pecan pies.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Mac -- thanks for your input on the DD milling machines. It will be interesting to see how flexible they become in the future.

Something to think about -- because of California’s micro-stamping law, no new handgun models have been introduced for sale in the state since 2013.

Hai, Sven and Paddy!

I was remiss in thanking Mac earlier for his thoughts re Defense Distributed’s gear, so “thanks, Mac!!1!”

Jeebus…I wasn’t aware of that out there. Hypothetical: could one legally purchase a post-2013 handgun in another state and then bring it into CA as one’s personal property?

Either way, the CA State Assembly, as well as certain City Councils and Boards of Supervisors, have way too many of the type of folks our Founders wanted us to be able to protect ourselves from.

Good question. You would have to be a resident of another state, purchase the handgun there, then move to California. At which time you would have to register the handgun with the State. While the state DOJ website is pretty clear about prohibiting the importation of assault weapons, it’s not very clear on importing for personal use handguns that aren’t on the list approved for sale.

Cheers, Paddy.

What a detestable state of affairs; Sacramento needs the disinfectant power of a thousand suns.
