Guess I'll have to make time to go to Florida and train some militia again.

History rarely exactly repeats itself. It does, however, often echo. "The time has come to change the tones of submission into tones of defiance."
Whatever may be your decision, my ground is taken. I have declared it everywhere. It is known over the state and out of the state—over the line in the North, and over the line in the South. I don't respect this law—I don't fear it—I won't obey it! It outlaws me, and I outlaw it, and the men who attempt to enforce it on me. I place the governmental officials on the ground that they place me. I will not live a slave, and if force is employed to re-enslave me, I shall make preparations to meet the crisis as becomes a man.
Whaaat? Is global warming going the route of Al and Tipper's marriage? NASA Admits That Winters are Going to Get Colder…Much Colder.
"If these scientists are correct, we are heading into a period of bitterly cold winters and much cooler summers. Imagine year after year of ‘polar vortex’ winters that start early, finish late and deliver unprecedented cold across the country. Cool wet summers will affect food production, as will floods from the melting snow when spring finally arrives."
Casey asserts that there is mounting evidence that the Earth is getting cooler due to a decline in solar activity. He warns in his latest book, Dark Winter, that a major alteration of global climate has already started and that, at a minimum, it is likely to last 30 years.Casey predicts food shortages and civil unrest caused by those shortages due largely to governments not preparing for the issues that colder weather will bring. He also predicts that wickedly bitter winter temperatures will see demand for electricity and heating outstrip the supply.
This reminds me of the scenario in John Ringo's The Last Centurion.
And I can still hear Minnesotans for Global Warming playing "We All Need Some Global Warming."
"The country's going to go nuts, because they're going to see it as a move outside the authority of the president, and it's going to be a very serious situation. (Y)ou could see instances of anarchy. You could see violence."

Don't they EVER learn? Will Judenrat Sebastian and the NRA repeat their inaction on the Holder nomination with his replacement?
The question then becomes who will have the guts to lead that fight? The newly-empowered Republican leadership? A national gun rights advocacy group like NRA, which wields power to score confirmation votes?Based on past experience, don’t expect either to act unless gun owners demand it of them. Don’t expect gun owners to do that unless they know about these concerns. And don’t expect them to know unless gun owners who do take it on themselves to tell them.
What David is referring to is this piece of cowardly prag foolishness from 2009: The Holder Battle and the NRA.
There will be times when it is necessary to fight with no hope of victory, but members should ask themselves whether they’d rather have NRA go down swinging trying unsuccessfully to defeat Holder, enhancing the paper tiger meme, or whether they’d prefer NRA preserve its political capital to defeat gun control bills?
Ah, yes, and we know how well Holder turned out. Again, there is NO NRA INACTION that Sebastian won't apologize in advance for. What a cowardly suckass.
"Our preemptive surrender shall not be questioned."
Gun rights advocates have for years been understandably contemptuous of "Fudds"--hunters who cannot be bothered to fight against attacks on gun rights, as long as their hunting guns are left alone. Fudds have even been known to actively participate in the attacks so-called "assault weapons," "high capacity" magazines, etc., presumably hoping that by feeding other gun owners to the crocodile first, they can avoid the jaws forever. The rest of us know better. Anti-gun politicians also get useful cover from the Fudds, when they argue that, "You don't need an 'assault weapon to hunt deer"--as if that makes banning the most effective militia arms acceptable.
Judenrat Sebastian at "Shall Not Be Questioned" has a brilliant solution to Bloomberg's initiative offensive: Preemptive Surrender.
Sebastian, the NRA's favorite "pragmatist" defender on the Internet, has discovered to his consternation something that David Codrea reported back in August: Bloomberg's targeting Nevada with another ballot initiative.
And what is Sebastian's solution? Why, compromise, of course. He writes, "Develop a more acceptable compromise bill that implements background checks upon change of title, but without the registration component, which is far more dangerous."
This tracks with many things he has said for years. Long-time readers may recall this gem:
As a member, I expect the National Rifle Association to fight gun control in the 111th Congress. If they have to get down on their hands and knees and kiss Harry Reid’s rosey red ass as part of a deal to stop a gun control bill, I’ll buy them the lip balm.
The rank-and-file firearm owners in Washington state are lining up to risk arrest to defy the new law and Sebastian is trying to cut deals that preemptively surrenders the issue in another state. In fact, there is a group in Nevada organizing to oppose Bloomberg. But does Sebastian support them? Oh, nooo. He'd rather sell them out ahead if time as a "strategy."
No wonder the Lairds of Fairfax love this guy. There is nothing he wouldn't compromise on, as long as it's someone else's rights and the dues money keeps flowing. One wonders what it really is that Sebastian refers to when he names his blog "shall not be questioned." Is he referring to his cowardice? Well, there you are. I certainly don't question THAT.
Sebastian at Valley Forge. "Are you sure, General Washington, that we can't compromise our way out of this?"

Although recently set back at the national polls, Democrats could still dominate the legislative agenda on guns and other crucial issues for the next 10 months if the Republican leadership allows a long-term continuing resolution to pass, Gun Owners of America warned members Monday in a national action alert.
I will have something on Connecticut more later, though.
Ben Shapiro highlights the latest anti-firearm propaganda: "'Innocent Targets' Used To As Fodder For Anti-Gun Crowd." Now, I looked at these and it struck me that THIS is precisely the message that we need to send to the Connecticut State Police. "Hey, CSP! Want to be a bully boy for Commissar Lawlor's gun confiscations? Then understand THIS is who you will be targeting."
Now I'm not saying we should buy these particular targets. But since, in good guerrilla fashion, we should be using the resources of the enemy to achieve our purpose, and xerox machines make the creation of propaganda easy, why not make our own messages and post them where CSP cops can see them along with the message above? Heck, if you want to really personalize it, use a picture of your wife and kids.
"(W)e’re not going to get change in this society unless white people are just a little bit afraid." Not everyone in Ferguson is up on that "deep abiding love" thing. Plus, some sage advice.
Meanwhile, "The Black Rebels group claims it is offering a $5,000 reward for anyone with information on (officer) Wilson's whereabouts and $1,000 each "close family" member located since many of them are in hiding. The Black Rebels leader, Zulu Gaddafi, confirmed that those rewards are serious business and will be paid."
And we have this sage advice: “If you do not have a gun, get one and get one soon. We will not be able to protect you or your family,” he wrote. “It will be your responsibility to protect them. Our gutless commanders and politicians have neutered us. I’m serious, get a gun, get more than one, and keep one with you at all times.”

Will try to get a fresh start tomorrow.
A complaint for declarative and injunctive relief was filed Friday in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Plaintiff Ryan S. Watson, acting individually and as trustee of the Watson Family Gun Trust, is suing Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Director B. Todd Jones in their official capacities for administering, executing and enforcing “statutory and regulatory provisions [that] generally act as an unlawful de facto ban on the transfer or possession of a machine gun manufactured after May 19, 1986.”
