I'm sorry y'all, but I just ain’t felt much like blogging lately. The things I WANT to say would land me in jail, and all else seems spurious by comparison.
I started a post this morning about the most popular Right Wing myths. We’ll see how that plays out. I fully intend to slam the hell out of the typical conservative worldview – that’s for sure.
On another note, I went to the rifle range this last Sunday and found it fatally infected with what I will call safety-itis. Safety-itis is the condition whereby all other thoughts of practicality, common sense, liberty, rights etc. are subordinated to the principal of no one must get hurt under any circumstances. It first found fertile ground in the mind of a mother somewhere, and in recent years has taken hold in society at large (to the eternal detriment of Liberty).
When I first went to this range about two years ago it offered a striking contrast to another range I had patronized for many years. That other range had an incident of a round going over the berm and striking a parked aircraft on a tarmac some two miles away. Management there went absolutely bonkers and put in place the most ridiculous set of rules imaginable, and in so doing destroyed any desire in yours truly to ever shoot there again. Now my alternate range has apparently gone the same sad route.
I guess the only solution is to buy a piece of property and build my own damn rifle range!
