# The Electronic Freedom Foundation had a funny April Fool's Day page yesterday. It's not there anymore today, but I mirrored it here (or click on the banner below). All the links on that page go to their real home page, just as it was yesterday on their site. [lrtdiscuss]

Bad Joke Advisory

# Edward J. Steele - Two Eds are Better than One - dated March 31, but reads like an April Fool's Joke. Mr. Steele is running for president. Hehe.

# Claire Wolfe at Backwoods Home Magazine - Miss Fitz' Guide to Guns, Part III: Ammo You Can Bet Your Life On - bottom line: use Speer Gold Dot, Remington Golden Saber, Cor-Bon JHP, Federal Hydra-Shok, Winchester Silvertip, Winchester Ranger, or Federal Tactical (sold only to cops).

If your state doesn't allow hollow-points -- which all of the above are -- a Hardyville gent named "securitysix" recommends the Federal EFMJ (Expanding Full-Metal Jacket). But then, he also recommends moving to another state. In Hardyville, our itty-bitty government wouldn't dare "allow" or forbid us our self-defense tools. We use what works best, whatever that may be, and don't allow bad guys any advantage.

Next up: Training to use your guns and ammo.

I remember watching both wounded WTC Towers on television and my first reaction was, "Those buildings won't fall." When they did, I couldn't believe it. After the airliners penetrated and jet fuel was burning (that couldn't last long), the buildings were quiet, motionless, and stable. Photos show that the fires were small and the dark smoke indicated that they were suffocating. Such fires could never bring the temperature up enough to melt steel. That's why no steel-framed building before the alleged 9/11 exception has ever collapsed solely because of fire.

Further, the South Tower was struck 17 minutes later than the North Tower, yet collapsed 29 minutes earlier. This is suspicious in view of the fact that the South Tower fire was much smaller (the plane hit the corner and dumped most of its fuel outside). The only explanation that fits all the physical facts is controlled demolition: internal explosions at various levels shattered the three buildings and rapidly collapsed them within 10 seconds, including the "mysterious" collapse of the 47-story, steel-framed WTC 7. The physical facts support a "politically-incorrect, engineering theory," if there ever was such a thing, at every turn. For example, rather than collapsing into broken pieces, 100,000 tons of concrete in the floors were vaporized into the dust we saw in the air and on fleeing people. That takes an enormous amount of energy. We're supposed to believe that a suffocating hydrocarbon fire high up in each Tower caused this? Physically impossible.

# Nicki Fellenzer and Angel Shamaya at KeepAndBearArms.com - APRIL FOOL: British Journalist Threatens Lawsuit Over Linking to His Crime Stories to Promote American Firearms Rights - this is not an April Fool's joke; the journalist who claims to be sicking his lawyers on KABA is the April fool. Nicki has a few more comments on it in this Publicola entry. [publicola]
