MamaLiberty, RIP

I heard yesterday, on Gab, from a Wyoming neighbor of MamaLiberty, that she passed, succumbing to the cancer that she told us was quickly progressing.

I wept. Then I went out for a walk, to breathe. When I passed the local flower shop, I knew what to do. I plan to press those flowers when they start to fade, and frame them as a reminder of an old lady who I never met in person, but who I love more than I knew.

Mama Liberty walked her talk.

Rest in Peace, sister.

GOV 2018 Vermont Candidate Report

Gun Owners of Vermont has published their 2018 Vermont Candidate Report, rating each candidate running for election in November on their stance on guns. For us one-issue voters, it makes the choices very simple.

I saved a copy here.

Thank You Jacob at Wideners

I received an email reporting on a broken link on this site. I get these fairly often. They're mostly nonsense about some ancient blog post, which I keep broken for historical accuracy. But this one was about a link in the sidebar of every page, with the John Lott quote. So I fixed it.

Thanks to Jacob from Widener's Reloading & Shooting Supply.

thementalmilitia.com server upgrade

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Sun, 29 Apr 2018 14:54:17 GMT  <== Webmaster stuff ==> 

I upgraded the Ubuntu on https://secure.thementalmilitia.com to 16.04, and it all went off without a hitch, but the forums showed a blank page.

This was due to SMF using a deprecated and as of PHP 7.0 defunct PHP API for MySql databases. I found a compatibility patch, and that fixed the problem.

The forums are now working under Ubuntu 16.04.

Server Updated to Ubuntu 16.04LTS

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Fri, 27 Apr 2018 12:52:26 GMT  <== Webmaster stuff ==> 

With the release of Ubuntu 18.04LTS, I have upgraded the server for this web site to Ubuntu 16.04LTS. I feel no need to follow the bleeding edge for a stable operating system, but 14.04 will only be supported for another year, so it was time to go to 16.04.

Stopping School Shootings

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Wed, 28 Mar 2018 10:59:11 GMT  <== Politics ==>   <== RKBA ==> 

Want to stop school shootings? Cold? A gun locker at every high school, secured by the local national guard. Daily classes for every student with parent permission, and guard approval, preparing them for armed response.

Twenty trained, rifle-wielding 17-year-olds could stop even a team of invaders.
