Your Range Report for a Christmas Eve

What to do on Christmas Eve?  Well, like millions of others I had to do some final shopping, so I did hit Wal Mart, which was not as crowded as I thought it might be, except for the toy department, which, or course, is where I needed to shop. Anyway, before the shopping, I decided to take an opportunity to visit the gun range, and I am glad I did. I decided to shoot the usual 100 rounds with my Sig p250, and shot further than the last time, when I went between 7-11 yards. I spread my shots from 9-15 yards, with over half from 12 yards or beyond, except for my last magazine, which I just fired as rapidly as I could from about 6 yards. Anyway, like last week, I went for as much speed as possible, gun up, on target, fire. I am really used to the double action trigger now, I have the reset point down, and it showed in my shooting. 

Out of 100 rounds, I had 96 in the 8-10, not quite as good as my 98 out of 100 last time, but I put 87 of those in the 9-10 rings, better than last trip’s 75, and I had about 40 of those in the 10 circle, it is hard to tell exactly since a good portion of the 10 ring was gone. So, overall my best day of shooting. I was darned proud of myself. Then I came home and watched this guy, Max Michel  who captains the Sig Sauer shooting team

At age 31, Max Michel is a legend within the world of competitive shooting. A three-time World Speed Shooting Champion, six-time USPSA National Champion, and three-time US National Steel Champion, Max is a dominant force in pistol shooting sports. Born and raised in New Orleans, LA Max began shooting when he was just 5 years old. In 1999 Max joined the famed USAMU’s Action Pistol Team and served in the U.S. Army for 10 years as an Army shooter and trainer. Max is also the current captain of the Team SIG SAUER shooting team. Today, Max is recognized worldwide as a top tier athlete and instructor.

18 shots, and two reloads in under 5 seconds? DAMN! 

Here is the best advice for a new shooter

 

Three Blacks Beat White Couple In New Orleans; Responding Officer Refuses To File Report (Video)

Police Not Interested In Brutal Beating On Tape – WorldNetDaily

A couple’s early-morning walk in the world famous French Quarter of New Orleans turned into a nightmare when they were beaten savagely by three black attackers in a horrifying scene that was caught on camera.

.

Then it got worse: The responding police officer decided it wasn’t worth filing a report.

According to the local CBS affiliate, the three perpetrators surrounded, verbally abused and then attacked the two victims as they walked through the French Quarter around 6 a.m. on Saturday.

The woman was punched in the mouth, while the man was tackled and had his face stomped as he lay helpless on the ground. The male victim suffered a concussion and a severely broken jaw that required surgery.

The video, despite breaks, caught most of the action leading up to the violence. It shows the two victims, both white, crossing the street as they are stalked by three young, African-American males who then surround and strike them.

.

.
After a break in the footage, the two victims are shown, clearly hurt. The surveillance camera also picked up their friend, who flagged down the obstinate officer for help and talked with him for about six minutes.

The officer is never seen getting out of his vehicle in the footage, but police officials stated to local media that he got out of his car sometime during his response.

Despite the evidence shown in the video and the report of the victims’ friend to the responding officer, the policeman ruled the call “unfounded” and didn’t write a report of the incident.

The officer, who was about to go off his shift at 7 a.m., even told the friend who detailed the crime to him that there was “zero” chance of the assailants being caught.

Police have since changed their tone and are now investigating the incident, but the victims’ families still believe the police are not doing enough.

The suspects are still on the loose and police have released the surveillance footage in the hope that members of the public will come forward to identify the suspects.

To Colin Flaherty, the award-winning journalist and author of “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” the incident is an all-too-familiar sight in the country today.

“Black mob violence is severely underreported in this country,” Flaherty told WND. “This is just the latest example. The cop did not investigate. Did not file a report. This also happened recently in Green Bay, where a mob attacked two off-duty policemen. And it happened this summer in Minneapolis, where a black mob robbed and beat a local radio personality. Police did not take a report and even asked him what he expected being in that part of town. One witness said the police even called the man a ‘pussy.’

“This happens a lot. And I hear about it in emails. And read about it on new sites throughout the country,” Flaherty added.

Oh but of course, Super Bowl blackout was caused by…………..

…….Global warming! And the only solution? More government!

Forward on Climate: The Climate Cliff - Ed Markey, Daily Kos

For two years, the nightly news and the morning papers have been filled with scenes that look like they’re straight out of a blockbuster movie. Waves crashing over sea walls as stronger storms lash our coasts. Trees ablaze as wildfires scar our forests. Crops withering as unrelenting drought and heat parch our farms.

Climate disruption is costing American lives and livelihoods. In 2011 and 2012, America endured 25 weather disasters that totaled $1 billion or more in damages 2012 was the warmest year on record in the continental United States. We suffered the most widespread drought since the Dust Bowl, record wildfires that engulfed neighborhoods, and superstorm Sandy, which killed more than 100 people and could cost taxpayers  $60 billion. [...]

I have also been fighting the GOP effort to build the Keystone Pipeline. Tar sands oil is some of the dirtiest crude oil on the planet, and the pipeline ends in a tax-free export zone in Port Arthur, Texas. Keystone XL would make American the middleman between the dirtiest oil on the plant and the thirstiest markets willing to burn it. Our country and our climate will assume all of the risk, and what we will get back is higher gas prices in the Midwest and more pollution in our atmosphere.

We also need to get smart about smart grid. It wasn’t Beyonce’s amazing performance that blew out the power during the Super Bowl, it was an aging energy infrastructure. If Thomas Edison was alive today he would recognize our current grid. No one should be in the dark about the necessity and the opportunity of building a new energy backbone.

Republicans don’t want to talk about climate change, but Mother Nature keeps interrupting their other conversations. It’s time to not just talk about the challenges that we face from climate change, but to do something about them.

Right now, we’re hanging off the climate cliff by our fingernails, with the weight of the fossil fuel lobby pulling us down.

Buffoon! I love how these climate change salesmen act as if forest fires and storms are new phenomenons somehow

America has a gang problem

Not a gun problem, but a GANG problem. Daniel Greenfield mows down the Liberal case that more gun control will reduce our murder rate

Chicago’s murder numbers have hit that magic 500. Baltimore’s murder toll has passed 200. In Philly, it’s up to 324, the highest since 2007. In Detroit, it’s approaching 400, another record. InNew Orleans, it’s almost at 200. New York City is down to 414 from 508. InLos Angeles, it’s over 500. In St. Louis it’s 113 and 130 in Oakland.  It’s 121 inMemphis and 76 in Birmingham.

Washington, D.C., home of the boys and girls who can solve it all, is nearing its own big 100.

Those 12 cities alone account for nearly 3,200 dead and nearly a quarter of all murders in the United States. And we haven’t even visited sunny Atlanta or chilly Cleveland.

These cities are the heartland of America’s real gun culture. It isn’t the bitter gun-and-bible clingers in McCain and Romney territory who are racking up a more horrifying annual kill rate than Al Qaeda; it’s Obama’s own voting base.

Chicago, where Obama delivered his victory speech, has homicide numbers that match all of Japan and are higher than Spain, Poland and pre-war Syria. If Chicago gets any worse, it will find itself passing the number of murders for the entire country of Canada.

Chicago’s murder rate of 15.65 per 100,000 people looks nothing like the American 4.2 rate, the Midwestern 4.5 or the Illinois’ 5.6 rates, but it does look like the murder rates in failed countries like Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe. To achieve Chicago’s murder rate, African countries usually have to experience a bloody genocidal civil war or decades of tyranny.

But Chicago isn’t even all that unique. Or the worst case scenario. That would be New Orleans which at an incredible 72.8 murder rate is ten times higher than the national average. If New Orleans were a country, it would have the 2ndhighest murder rate in the world, beating out El Salvador.

Louisiana went red for Romney 58 to 40, but Orleans Parish went blue for Obama 80 to 17.

St. Louis has a murder rate just a little lower than Belize. Baltimore has a worse murder rate than South Africa and Detroit has a worse murder rate than Colombia. Obama won both St. Louis and Baltimore by comfortable margins. He won Detroit’s Wayne County 73 to 26.

Homicide rates like these show that something is broken, but it isn’t broken among the Romney voters rushing to stock up on assault rifles every time Obama begins threatening their right to buy them; it’s broken among Obama’s base.

Read the rest, Greenfield points out the problem very well. Liberals can whine all day about “getting the guns” but they should be focusing on “getting the gangs”

A breakdown of the Chicago killing fields shows that 83% of those murdered in Chicago last year had criminal records. In Philly, it’s 75%. In Milwaukee it’s 77% percent. In New Orleans, it’s 64%. In Baltimore, it’s 91%. Many were felons who had served time. And as many as 80% of the homicides were gang related.

Chicago’s problem isn’t guns; it’s gangs. Gun control efforts in Chicago or any other major city are doomed because gangs represent organized crime networks which stretch down to Mexico, and trying to cut off their gun supply will be as effective as trying to cut off their drug supply.

America’s murder rate isn’t the work of the suburban and rural homeowners who shop for guns at sporting goods stores and at gun shows, and whom news shows profile after every shooting, but by the gangs embedded in the urban areas controlled by the Democratic machine. The gangs who drive up America’s murder rate look nothing like the occasional mentally ill suburban white kid who goes off his medication and decides to shoot up a school. Lanza, like most serial killers, is a media aberration, not the norm.

National murder statistics show that blacks are far more likely to be killers than whites and they are also far more likely to be killed. The single largest cause of homicides is the argument. 4th on the list is juvenile gang activity with 676 murders, which combined with various flavors of gangland killings takes us nearly to the 1,000 mark. America has more gangland murders than Sierra Leone, Eritrea and Puerto Rico have murders.

 

From the some people should be beaten with a stick file

This story is almost unbelievable, I say almost because there are people stupid enough to do something like this!

NEW ORLEANS - The Quicky’s convenience store in Mid-City takes its parking lot rules seriously. Very seriously.

About 4 p.m. Friday, New Orleans paramedics rushed inside the store for a man with a life-threatening medical issue.

They worked on the patient with chest pain, put him inside the vehicle, then started to speed off.

The paramedics “heard a loud noise,” and the vehicle came to a screeching halt, according to Jeb Tate, spokesman for New Orleans Emergency Medical Services.

The medics stepped out and found a boot on their ambulance.

Convenience store employees allegedly put a restrictive parking boot on the ambulance. And now it was stuck.

The paramedics were perplexed.

Tate said the ambulance had its emergency lights on the whole time.

Store employees didn’t want to talk about it. They declined requests for comment.

Apparently one of the employees took the boot off. The tire was left flat.

And so the paramedics and the man with the emergency waited.

“We actually had to delay that patient’s care by calling another ambulance out here to come transport this patient,”Tate said.

Good Freaking Grief! Of course this is New Orleans we are talking about, so….

Your Marxist Moron of the Day is

 

Melissa Harris-Perry for this gem

MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry stressed during an interview with the Washington Blade last week that voter suppression efforts continue to impact transgender Americans.

“They don’t look like what their photo IDs are,” she said from New Orleans. “So if they are self-presenting in front of an election official and they have an ID that says male or female and they’re sort of gender self-presenting in a non-conforming way, of course you end up with the possibility of shame or embarrassment or not being believed to be who you are.”

Excuse me while I slap my self………OK, better, this quote shows two things. First, stupid should hurt. Second, this proves that the Left has FINALLY reached the bottom of the voter ID laws are evil barrel.

 

Some college football notes

 

Week 2 of the 2012 season is past and it was quite a week. Everyone should offer up prayers for Tulane safety Devon Walker, who broke his neck Saturday

 

Doctors say they will need to operate soon on Tulane safety Devon Walker, who is in stable condition after fracturing his spine in a head-to-head collision with a teammate during a weekend game in Tulsa.

Tulane University’s athletics program said specialists treating Walker at a Tulsa hospital placed him in traction after Saturday’s injury and are treating him for a lot of swelling to the neck.

“The current plan is for him to have surgery in the next one to two days,” said the statement released late Saturday, hours after the New Orleans team opened the Conference USA portion of its schedule against Tulsa.

Tulane’s team doctor, Greg Stewart, told The New Orleans Times-Picayune in a report published online Sunday that the player had some feeling in his arms and legs and that the possibility of paralysis was still unknown.

 

Awful, I hope he recovers fully. 

 

My Gators looked shaky in the first half vs the Aggies, but, the defense clamped down in the second half, and first-year starter Jeff Driskel seemed to mature as the game went on and Florida topped A&M 20-17

It was over when: Clinging to a 20-17 lead with 1:30 remaining, Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel raced for 21 yards on a bootleg to ensure the Gators would not have to give the ball back to the Aggies. Florida took over at its own 14 with 3:12 remaining and managed to grind down the clock on a seven-play drive consisting of all run plays.

Game ball goes to: Driskel. He was far from spectacular, but the quarterback was mistake-free in his first start for the Gators. Driskel was absolutely drilled to the tune of eight — repeat, eight — sacks. But he hung in to complete 13 of 16 passes for 162 yards, and while the Florida offense was far from fun to watch, Driskel took care of the ball and made clutch plays when he had to. In addition to the game-sealing run, Driskel connected with tight end Omarius Hines on a beautiful 39-yard throw to set up the go-ahead touchdown. 

 

The other newcomer to the SEC, Mizzou, led Georgia 17-9, and then the roof fell in

 

Aaron Murray hit Marlon Brown for two of his three touchdown passes, the second for the go-ahead score as the Bulldogs recovered from a shaky start with 32 second-half points that spoiled Missouri’s SEC debut in a 41-20 victory Saturday night.

The Bulldogs (2-0, 1-0) trailed 17-9 early in the third quarter before turning Missouri’s SEC debut into an unsatisfying initiation for the Tigers (1-1, 0-1) and a sellout crowd of 71,004 clad in yellow and waving yellow pom-pons.

 

In other news there were upsets, as Wisconsin fell to Oregon State, Oklahoma State was blown out by Arizona 59-38, and most shocking #8 Arkansas was upended by Louisiana Monroe

 

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Kolton Browning reminded the nation that Louisiana-Monroe is no stranger taking down the Southeastern Conference.

Browning accounted for 481 yards of total offense and four touchdowns Saturday night, including the game-winning scramble in overtime, to help the Warhawks (1-0) rally from a 21-point deficit for a 34-31 win over No. 8 Arkansas.

The win is Louisiana-Monroe’s first over a ranked team since joining the FBS in 1994, and it is the school’s first over an SEC team since defeating Alabama in 2007. The Warhawks are 4-34 against the SEC, with their only other win coming against Mississippi State in 1995.

 

For all the scores, including Michigan barely surviving Air Force, K-State thumping the Canes 52-13, Penn State losing another tough one, and Arizona State crushing Illinois go here
