A Los Angeles, California sheriff's deputy pleaded guilty to violating an 80 year old federal law (The National Firearms Act, 1933) that restricts ownership of rifles with barrels less than 16 inches in length. This is one of the few laws that old of any kind the federal government actually enforces.

Following near record shattering shootings in Chicago, a city with one of the most draconian gun laws in the nation, a Chicago police official, Garry McCarthy, has demanded even more gun control. Gun control has worked very well in Illinois, if your goal is to have young black men shoot each other in large numbers.

Researching the latest Bundy ranch episode has consumed my time, so I made note of very little from last week.

The left's fever swamp is brimful of creeps demanding dead men and women at the Bundy Ranch. Crazy f*ckers.

Loads.
