BATFuckErs: Doubling = Full-Auto

From The Federalist:
"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in the world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them." -- George Bernard Shaw

# JPFO Alerts - Vital Warning to All Owners of Semiautomatic Firearms - marketing piece for a video ($17.76 on DVD or VHS) of the b.a.t.f.e. getting caught attempting to imprison a man by calling a malfunctioning semi-automatic rifle a machine gun. [jpfo]

First, you will see BATFE "expert" Michael Cooney - a man whose investigations and testimony might possibly have put dozens, if not hundreds, of gun owners behind bars - test firing Glover's supposed "machine gun."

Then you you will see Len Savage calmly do what any competent investigator would have done in the first place - disassemble the firearm and reveal that the "machine gun" was simply an ordinary semiautomatic rifle, assembled from aging parts, that would occasionally - and dangerously - malfunction.

You will see that the BATFE makes no attempt at any real investigation. Their "experts" have no firearms manufacturing experience, no engineering degrees, no rigorous protocols to follow. They have no forensic labs, no scientific method, no desire to discover the truth. You'll see that its "experts" not only know very little about firearms but don't even know the laws they're supposedly enforcing. You will see them caught in the act (just like a kid with his hand in the cookie jar) of doing the very things they've gotten away with all these years.

Had Len Savage not disassembled that firearm, the BATFE would almost certainly never have done so. The agency was prepared to put John Glover in prison - to make him a felon forever -- because he owned a broken gun!

# Claire Wolfe - New USB flash drive and CD-bootable Linuxes - Claire wrote this blog entry with a SanDisk Cruzer Mini USB Flash Drive and PCLinuxOS, a CD-bootable Linux. She links to a couple of other CD-bootable Linux distributions. Apparently, someone made her a slightly-customized version. Hehe. [claire]

But as is, at least two of these CD bootables could virtually replace a major installed Linux. Nice way to get somebody started on Linux without making the big commitment to install.

I'm going with PCLinuxOS, though. How could I resist? This is "The Outlaw Edition" and it opens with a revolver-bearing Tux.
