As usual, I get more stuff built up than I can possibly comment on, and I want to keep my posts more proactive and less reactive. But here’s what’s going on:
Hey, a mass killing stopped by an armed security officer you won’t hear anything about in the media. It’s partly bias, but also partly “No slaughter, no story.”
Here’s how do to an incremental backup with xtrabackup for MySQL. See, I hate it when I get work and blog tabs mixed up ;)
John Richardson has a good line of argument to use against Obama. This guy has never given a rat’s ass about the American Economy.
A reader sent a link to this rule making petition, asking me about it. This is from Fall 2011, originally. It’s not new. It has to do with NFA trusts, and requiring individuals on trusts to go through background checks. It also would eliminate the CLEO signoff for individual NFA for making or transferring an NFA firearm or suppressor.
White House Misfires on Gun Control, from the… wait… the Boston Herald?
Generals and Gun Control. I guess military brass isn’t that different from police brass.
Tom Corbett has always had problems with Pennsylvania conservatives. Yeah, I’ve been too, but his refusal to politicize Sandy Hook, and standing firm against gun control erases any disappointment I might have been feeling. I’ll crawl over broken glass to help him out in 2014. Not having to worry as much about Pennsylvania is a tremendous help right now.
Who needs more than X rounds? Good thing there wasn’t two intruders. People who say that you don’t need more than 10 rounds watch too many movies and don’t understand how poor pistol rounds are at stopping bad guys. More here. Also, some people think shooting home invaders is horrible.
The guy on Biden’s task force had a son that was convinced of plotting a school shooting. Well, I guess he can at least claim direct experience with this sort of thing.
That was a lot, I know, but news is coming so fast I can’t really comment on it all, and I have a few more posts brewing in my head about how we got here, and what the left is hoping to accomplish and how.
