In the aftermath of the non-issue in Virginia, I have a few notes.

Before we get started, even the actual left media agrees with me that "liberals" are racist: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/08/white-liberal-racism-why-progressives-are-unable-to-see-their-own-bigotry.html

First, VCDL does this every year. If you don't know who they are, or that this is an annual event, you're not qualified to hold an opinion. It's a (sort of slightly) free country, so you can express your opinion, but anyone educated should laugh at you.

Here's some examples of the idiocy I found where idiots hang out, meaning Twitter, but also a bit on Farcebook.

"Most of the protesters are white!"  Most of Virginia's population is white. But go ahead and ignore the many black, Chinese-American, Hispanic, and other patriots who where there. I guess they're only "marginalized" when they're on your side, otherwise, they don't exist.  If you're racist, that is.

"They're all racists!"  Hey, you're the people who elected Governor Blackface Whitehood, and are having extra state police work on MLK day, AND requiring city and county police to do so, too.  But everyone else are racist? Cool story, bro! I hope you're convincing yourself.

"GOA is just a group for white gun nuts."  So you're completely ignoring their communication director, Antonia Okafor. https://gunowners.org/antonia-okafor/

Well, okay, racist.

Oh, here's some more: 

 /></p><p><img src= 

There are thousands more, if you care to look, and don't MARGINALIZE them.

"Haha! These gun nuts are mostly fat and ugly!" Fatshaming and Lookshaming. Very liberal. Also, body armor literally adds 35 lbs, plus bulk for cold weather clothing.

"Why aren't they at work?"  It's a holiday. Lots of them have it off, or took a day off. Did you forget it was Dr Martin Luther King, Jr Day?  If so, it's probably because you're a racist.

"Hey, it's illegal to wear a mask!"  They're wearing the same masks the police wearing, because it is cold. Somehow, you never complain about this when it's your terrorist Antifag buddies doing it.

"Wow, they're wearing military clothing!" Actually, in that picture, those are Carhart coveralls used in cold weather by people who actually work for a living, including city workers, construction workers, and line workers. You know: All the working class people you elitist liberal cocksuckers like to pretend don't exist, or if you acknowledge they do, that they're stupid because they don't have a degree in Agenda Studies.

"The police weren't taking them down like they do other groups!"  Gee, it's almost as if being armed causes the government to take you more seriously and its agents to be reluctant to get force turned on them. And of course, they were completely peaceful. If only we could make that work for, I don't know, MARGINALIZED COMMUNITIES.  It worked for Malcolm X.

"March to the nearest recruitment center." A huge number of them are vets. Also, nice endorsement of the military industrial complex and police state. Sieg Heil, you fucking Nazi.

"There were very few police present. Because they're white." Actually, there were THOUSANDS of police present, but since these were decent human beings, not the sort of subhuman shit who beat people with bike locks, throw milkshakes at them like 1950s racists, set things on fire, or attack cops, the police didn't need to do anything. Once again you're proving the point:  The very diverse group you insist is only "white males" is a largely peaceful group. For now.

"Haha! These people aren't scary at all!" Thanks for admitting it. So why do you want to restrict their rights and piss them off?

"All this over background checks!"  That is about the most monstrous lie possible, and this is going to take a bit:

Let's start with non-gun laws, since that might actually affect a liberal pinbrain: They're proposing that recall require 25% of ELIGIBLE VOTERS on a petition. Not actual voters or even registered. So, more people than ever actually vote for a candidate.

They're proposing an 8 year term for their pet governor.

They're proposing the same racist bullshit that "black people don't know how to get voter ID"--the same ID everyone uses to drive, buy smokes, and buy beer, so they can pack more illegal votes in. There's literally no reason to oppose voter ID, as is used in every civilized nation, unless you're a racist trying to pack an election...for that 8 year governor. (And keep in mind, at some point, a Republican might become governor, and then the problem is the other way.  Of course, expecting "liberals" to even comprehend what a second order effect is, much less predict them, is like expecting a pig to grasp calculus.)

The governor was able to claim "social media comments" as a "public emergency," and declare 14 acres of empty public ground an "emergency shelter" where no weapons were allowed.  The courts refused to stop this.  At this point he can literally declare the entire state such.

There's a bill that calling a public employee and obscene name would constitute a "threat." So if you inform Governor Blackface Whitehood of the fact that he's a cocksucking Nazi piece of shit, you'd go to jail.  Hey, Demorrhoids prove they want the First Amendment gone, too.  Awkward. Except, of course, there has NEVER been a Demorrhoid who supported free speech. They want free speech for THEM, but not for anyone who might disagree with their Nazi ideology. (Yes, if you belong to the Democratic Party, you ARE a fucking Nazi, and you ARE a fucking racist piece of shit.)(And almost certainly Anti-Semitic, too.) (I've proven this before: https://www.michaelzwilliamson.com/blog/index.php?itemid=489 https://www.michaelzwilliamson.com/blog/index.php?itemid=473 )

And see the opening note.

Nevermind "background checks," they proposed banning several categories of firearms, which does in fact constitute, "Taking the guns," and massive restrictions on a right, and have already cancelled their recognition of 25 states' reciprocal licenses to carry. What those states should do is cancel recognition of VA driver and marriage licenses.

Possibly the scariest is a "voluntary" list to be a non-gun person, which if you violate, constitutes a crime.  If you don't want a gun, just don't buy a fucking gun.  Why sign up to make yourself a criminal?  To address this, we need to consider what "voluntary" means.  It means a lot like "elective" abortion.  In most cases, you can "elect" to abort, or either die in childbirth or give birth to a poor creature that dies in agony.

You'll "volunteer" to be a non-gun owner who can be charged as a criminal if you do when your employer, or their insurer, tells you it's a condition of employment to "reduce workplace violence." (It won't. If you believe it will, you're fucking stupid. And don't bother arguing, I know more about this subject than you do.)  You can  "Volunteer" to not own guns or volunteer to starve.  Or when the divorce judge tells you custody depends on "volunteering" for this list. Or the traffic court.  Or the school you wish to attend.

Then they'll trumpet that X% or X number of Virginians "voluntarily" don't own guns, as if that matters for the practice of a right. (How many of you have ever actually written a letter to your Congressleech? Does that mean free speech doesn't exist?) They'll use that for marketing elsewhere.

Also, the bill would make it a crime to let someone on the list handle weapons.  So this will be used to harass and arrest honest people who get entrapped.

A bill that would require ANYONE selling guns or ammo to ensure EVERY employee can pass a background check. Now, this sounds reasonable, but is in fact already federal law...for people who actually transact firearms.  But what this would mean is that WalMart couldn't just designate five people in Sporting Goods as the FFL section, cleared by ATF, as they do now. Literally EVERY FUCKING EMPLOYEE down to the night janitor would have to pass a background check.  Which of course means the store will stop selling guns. Which of course means inexpensive guns will be less available to minorities and marginalized communities at risk of violence.

Note that last:  Literally EVERYTHING the Demorrhoids push for is a long game to get back the slaves we forcibly made them give up in the Civil War. They want minorities poor, helpless, and dependent on the government. Any minority who forgets their place is scorned as an "Uncle Tom" or "Sellout" or even "House ni__r."  Such tolerant, peaceful people Demorrhoids are.

So, yeah, go ahead with your racism, lies, and hatred about everyone involved in a peaceful protest.

But, since we know you're the fucking Nazis now, expect to get treated like fucking Nazis next time. Hopefully the guillotine won't be in effigy: 

 /></p><p><strong>  Noted for next time. We'll bring live ammo.

"Better luck next time!"  Oh, don't worry, cockbag. Next time, we won't make that "peaceful" mistake again.

You are the racists, you are the liars, and we know who you are.

~~~

But let's be honest:

The ballot box failed. The soap box is irrelevant when the left controls the media. The courts have said pretty much any gun control is A-OK, and SCOTUS has refused to hear the appeals.

And a bunch of guncucks paraded around and did nothing after the Delegates proposed stealing their property and installing themselves for life.

It’s been time for the Ammo Box since the 18th Amendment. We need to just admit that 95% of gun owners are pussies, and the 5% who might start something know the 95% would go Full Virtue Signal, and turn them in while shrieking, “They’re not law abiding gun owners!” The number of cucks online insisting, "Well, why don't you start it?"  Even if I could, what would be the point? You'd play their game.

The building was empty. You could have stormed the building, set up shop peacefully, and had the crowd outside bring you pizza and beer, and still been there, forcing the Nazis to hold their legislative session in a conference hall, humiliated before the world.

You could have separated the barricades from inside or out, and put 20,000 people inside the barricades, no violence, just civil disobedience the way Ghandi intended. Go where they say you can't. Say what they prohibit.

Hell, if the badly outnumbered cops looked itchy, you could have made it very clear they were being disarmed for their own safety and sent home.

Nope, you paraded around and did nothing, told everyone how peaceful you were, not like the fascists at Antifa, and made it clear you'll politely line up for the box cars when it's time.

NEWSFLASH: Antifa has gotten city, county, and state governments to accept their actions and intentions, ban conservatives, refuse to arrest their agitators, and even refuse to prosecute their criminals who have beaten or shot at people.

And you...proved you'll do nothing. So yet more restrictive bills were proposed this week in VA and almost every other state.

But NEXT TIME for SURE!

There wonΓÇÖt be a revolution. TheyΓÇÖll take your guns. YouΓÇÖll suck the Nazi cock. YouΓÇÖll swear you love it.

I fucking despise you, too.

Just caught a bunch of pages and videos on this.

You can buy these from me, too, but Amazon carries them at the same price.

Here's the idiot myth on every single page:

"The back isn't a good saw."

"The primary use of that knife, the reason it was designed, was as a general purpose escape tool from the wreckage of an aircraft. You could punch a hole in the fairly thin skin of the craft and saw your way out. ItΓÇÖs a fairly specialised knife that can work as a field knife but itΓÇÖs not the best choice for a general purpose knife."

No, it fucking isn't.  If the plane is that fucked up, you're not getting out. That's a load of bullshit up there with the myth of, "You can't legally use a .50 cal against troops, but you can use it to shoot their web gear," and "Mattel made M-16s." The knife is stowed in a kit under the seat. You're not getting it out in time to do any cutting. If it's a fighter, you're ejecting. If it's a cargo/transport/bomber, there's a half dozen different ways out of the plane-every hatch, ramp, window, port and door is an egress.

"Hey, the guys need a tool to cut through the fuselage."

"How about a metal shear and a springloaded punch?"

"I guess, but I was thinking of giving them a knife."

"A knife?"

"Yeah, to punch a hole in the plane and saw their way out."

"Like you'd do with a spring-loaded punch and a metal shear?"

"Yeah, but a knife!"

No one is going to cut their way out, and 7075T6 aluminum is rather tougher than you think it is--they use it for M-16 receivers.
 
The saw isn't a very good saw, but it's a combinaton file/rasp (and not a very good one, but better than not having one).  It's for shaping wood, cutting rope, abrading roots, whatever you might need a non-slicing edge for. The knife is used for everything you use a knife for on the ground. You know: Camping and surviving while waiting for Pararescue to recover your butt.

I'm waiting for someone to insist what it really needs is a launchable spring loaded blade "like the Spetznaz used" as a "last ditch weapon."

And the CQC6 "Quartermaster" knife wasn't used for "prying open crates and hammering the lids," either. As dumb as the Army can sometimes be, they DO know what hammers and prybars are.
 
Jesus Christ, you people are stupid.

I just acquired a wall thickness gauge to assist with my addiction to classic shotguns.  Before you shoot something a hundred years old (or even fifty), you want to ensure it met proof, hasn't been reamed, compare chamber specs to the proof marks, if any, determine chamber length, load, and wall thickness. For example, 12 gauge shotguns might be spec'ed for anything from 2" all the way to 3.75" long shells, and while the longer chambers can take the shorter shells, the inverse is most definitely not true. Then, have the barrels been filed and refinished?  The bore polished?

And given the investment some of these represent--we're talking guns that come in their own custom fitted luggage with their own monogrammed accessories, and a label that notes the maker was "By Appointment to Her Majesty" (Queen Victoria) and about a dozen princes and dukes, you damned sure either pay someone to check the gun over for you, or get the tools to do it.  So I dropped $600 without thinking twice.

I had some problems learning to calibrate it, because I was way overthinking things. A call to the manufacturer cleared that up, and I was good to go.

What you need to know is that shotguns have most of their propellant impulse inside the chamber, and don't need barrels as heavy as rifles do.  So the recommended minimum wall thickness for a shotgun is .020".  Below that you really shouldn't shoot it, and should consider replacement of the barrels, having them relined, or sleeved.

The conversation with the guns went like this:

Stoeger, Brazil: I am a tactical shotgun! .020" doesn't allow for extra heavy loads or crashing through doors.  .035" is much better.

 width=

Williams and Powell, Liverpool: These barrels were replaced in 1954 after 70 years of honorable service. The new ordnance steel barrels are proofed at 3 tons pressure and have a minimum thickness of .028".

 width=

Luciano Rota, Italy: Pfah.  Leeway is good.  .030" will remain reliable, and it's easy enough for anyone with muscle.

 /></p><p>Westley Richards, London:  I am 141 years old, and after being refinished, my double twist Persian damascus bores are right at .027, with one eroded ring at .020.

 width=

Robert Faller, Freiburg: (Drags off cigarette.) Ze English are wimps! A gun is a tool for MENSCHEN!  There's that one thin spot from wear, down around .028", but otherwise these tubes are .035" to take hunting loads worthy of the Black Forest.

 width=

Mortimer, Edinburgh:  (Sips single malt.) Damned right they are. Old school percussion guns with laminated barrels are .040", in case the whisky causes you to lose track of the charge.

 width=

W&C Scott & Sons, Birmingham: (Leans back on cane.) You kids are all wankers.  Not only am I 10 gauge and laminated, I'm walled at .045". Do you want to dance? Or do you want to bloody shoot? 

 width=

Henri Pieper, Liege: (Pulls out pipe, blows huge cloud of smoke.)  Va te faire foutre! I am a professional and there are no chances here!  Three bar twist laminate barrels.  Walls are .050" up to .070" and threaded into a solid steel monobloc, which I patented. You have improved the pressure curve of your modern propellants, you say?  DO YOUR WORST! Phallicly stuff your nitrocellulose shells into my 137 year old chambers, and pull the trigger.  PULL THE TRIGGER! Pull it, ta chatte! BE A MAN!

 width=

So, yeah, some of these old guns are fucking tanks. The myth that you can't possibly shoot old guns at all, and if you can, you have to use half loads, is BS.

The inability of the internet generations to use 10 seconds of their search engine of choice is pretty pathetic.
 
From Wikipee, who's rarely unbiased, but in this case managed some basic facts (Infogalactic is better):
 
Under current law, all male U.S. citizens between 18ΓÇô25 (inclusive) years of age are required to register within 30 days of their 18th birthday. In addition, certain categories of non-US citizen men between 18ΓÇô25 living in the United States must register, particularly permanent residents, refugees, asylum seekers, and illegal immigrants.[2]
~~
The illegals better run. I need popcorn for the Demorrhoid reaction.
~~
 
In February 2019, the male-only military draft registry was ruled to be unconstitutional by a federal district judge in National Coalition for Men v. Selective Service System.[52] Following the ruling, the Selective Service's Legislative Liaison Jacob Daniels told reporters: "Things continue here at Selective Service as they have in the past, which is men between the ages of 18 and 25 are required to register with Selective Service. And at this time, until we receive guidance from either the court or from Congress, women are not required to register for Selective Service."[53]
~~
That was your guidance from the court. At any point you attempt to implement, you'll be shut down.
~~~
The Selective Service System considers the term "male" in the federal law to refer to the sex observed at birth, so trans women are required to register, while trans men are not.[54]
~~
Yeah, I need popcorn for the GOP response now. And the Demorrhoid freakout that transfemales might actually have to be treated like males. Basically, neither side has any intellectual consistency on this.
~~
First draftees are inducted: According to current plans, Selective Service must deliver the first inductees to the military within 193 days from the onset of a crisis.[75]
~~
After the President asks, and a Congress determined to fight everything he does agrees (good luck with that). Though they might do it just to be able to blame him. Because The Demorrhoids excel at fucking their own people in the ass to make a point that didn't need made.
 
And then you have to train them to do something useful.  And make sure they're reliable and not going to sabotage anything, which even volunteer millennials have done to high profile (That little bitch Bradley Manning for example).
 
So, at least a year. 
 
There are zero foreseeable future conflicts in which that timeframe will ever be relevant, and it's much cheaper to offer bonuses than fight the lawsuits or convene the boards, especially when a bunch of recruits never actually make use of the benefits in the first place.

So I'm going to disagree with a friend on a board that Selective Service is "Alive and well."  It's a barely breathing, corpulent relic that serves no purpose and exists due to the bureaucracy's inability and unwillingness to ever euthanize a terminally ill patient.

And speaking as a retired vet--we don't want the pathetic kind of untermenschen who need to be ordered to backfill support roles we can fill with reservists, retirees, civil service, and contractors for cheaper per-slot costs.  And we sure as shit don't want you pretending to be line troops. If you could pass the physical training. Which most of you soibois cannot. So bleat on Twitter, drink your energy drinks, eat your junk food or "organic" bullshit, watch your Youtube, and play CoD.  And otherwise keep quiet. The men will handle this.

And let's look at the history of these protests:

Rescue run to Grenada: "ZOMG! DRAFT!"
Dig out a guy in Panama: "ZOMG! DRAFT!"
Several debacles in the Balkans, Africa and Caribbean under Bill Clinton: INFORMATIVE SILENCE.
Expedition to Kuwait: "ZOMG! DRAFT!"
Operations in Iraq: "ZOMG! DRAFT!"
Operations in Syria under 0bama: DEAFENING FUCKING SILENCE.
Angry tweet about NK. "ZOMG! DRAFT!"
Single fucking missile on a legit target. "ZOMG! DRAFT!"

It's a childish protest bleat.

EDIT: in response to that last:

In response to my snarking commentary on hemorrhoid pussies shrieking about a draft, 
some liberal shithead called
Rebecca Anne Smith said: I strongly doubt that pattern exists anywhere outside of Mr Williamson's memory and that of people equally effected by bias confirmation.
Me: I strongly doubt you have a clue what you're talking about.

Nixon ended Vietnam and the draft, but somehow gets blamed for the war started by Truman.

Carter reintroduced Selective Service. Now, which party was he?  Oh, right.

I moved to the US in 1978, and was SERVING IN THE US MILITARY from 1985-2010 and watched nearly every minor operation lead to Demorrhoid pussies shrieking about a draft.  Except from 1993-2000.  The Balkans never happened and we don't still have troops there (except it did and we do) and "Clinton ended that war and brought the troops home" except they're still there.  Mogadishu never happened.

From Bush down, officials say there'll be no draft--but makings are there WAR IN THE GULF
https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/bs-xpm-1991-01-20-1991020013-story.html


Charlie Wrangel re-introduced a draft in 2003, shrieked to the press that Congress was considering a draft and it was all Bush's fault. No one else supported it, and his grandstanding stunt died in committee.


"Sooner or later, the government will need a draft to fight a longer or larger-scale war, or to maintain a permanent occupation force in Afghanistan, Iraq,"
https://hasbrouck.org/draft/draftandwar.html (which also contains the liberal lie that the Mujahideen became al Qaida)

"Widespread fears of a new draft crash selective service system."
https://www.militarytimes.com/flashpoints/2020/01/05/world-war-iii-trending-on-social-media-crashed-the-selective-service-website/
 
The earlier ones are not easily found online, but I remember plenty of people railing about them both in person (including a couple of my alleged "educators") and in the press.

So anyone thinking otherwise can take their OWN selection bias and fuck themselves with it.
