Bank of America Hates Firearms Owners: Part II

B of A has responded to their dumping of firearms manufacturer McMillian Firearms.  If you are not familiar with the story you can see the email and read more details here.  Here is the statement from B of A's facebook page:

We want to let you know that we hear your comments and questions regarding one of our customers. While we cannot discuss the details of any individual client we work with, we can assure you the allegations being made here are completely false. Bank of America does not have a policy that prohibits us from banking clients in this industry. In fact, we have numerous, longstanding customers in the industry.

We are also extremely proud of our support of the US military and reject any assertion to the contrary. We count as clients many companies that provide for our nation's defense. We employ thousands of veterans, Guardsmen, and Reservists, and plan to increase our hiring this year.

To their credit B of A responded to my post with the above pictured tweet.  Not surprisingly, they didn't reveal who the other firearms companies are that use their services.  McMillan has posted a video describing the event and even challenged Bank of America to come forward and tell their side of the story. It will be interesting to see how this shakes out.

Act of Valor: Navy Seal Movie BAD ASS!

Nothing frustrates me more that poor weapons handling in a movie.  Never ending magazines, poor technique, curved bullets impossible shots, and the need to cock a weapon in a bad guys face are just a few of my pet peeves. 

The new movie Act of Valor movie is made with lightening, real lightening! real Navy Seals!  No joke, the Bandito Bros production company uses active duty Seals as actors and they can ACT and HANDLE A WEAPON!  These guys are true bad asses, and it shows up on screen.  I'm super stoaked on this film!  Visit their website here: Act of Valor




Negligent Discharge Compilation

I saw this video posted over at Tactical Fanboy; nice compilation of negligent discharges. 


Showtime's New Firearms Show

Showtime has a new show all about firearms called Lock N Load (not to be confused with History Channel's R. Lee Ermey show with the same name).  It is pseudo reality based show following a dude who works at a gun store/pistol range in Colorado called The Shootist.  Lock N Load showcases all sorts of Americans coming in to shoot and purchase firearms.

Here's the rub, this show is going to make gun owners (and purchasers) look like stereotypes for crazy, uneducated, hard charing, rednecks.  I have this sinking feeling that the folks who have surrendered their frontal lobe to television (for the purpose of making all their important decisions) will embrace the pyscho view of gun owners.  I'll have to keep an eye on this show to see how it shakes out...

California Fail: AB962

My name is Foxtrot, and I live in a failing state, the People's Republic of Kalifornia.  I'm sure you've heard all the glorious statics of my state including that fact that if my state were a country it would be one of the 10th largest in the world (that wiki stat could now be dated), and that we have great weather.  Most of the time I can tolerate the fact that:

  • The state's economy is collapsing, and jobs are nowhere to be found.
  • 50+ year old freeway infrastructure, not equipped for modern usage levels (read: MASSIVE TRAFFIC).
  • CCW (permit for concealed weapons) is damn near impossible for law abiding citizens in Los Angeles and Orange County to obtain.
  • Confusing poorly written firearms laws.
  • Immigration Problems
  • Uninsured non-citizen drivers (CA insurance companies have fixed this problem by making allowing law abiding CA citizens pay for "uninsured motorists insurance" which is in essence paying for someone else's insurance!)
  • Liberal corrupt politicians

When you hinder my right to purchase ammunition, by requiring a thumb print, limiting how many rounds I can purchase, and not allowing mail order sales I say enough is enough.  Despite the efforts of law abiding citizens urging Schwarzenegger to veto AB962 (I'd love to see that stats on many folks called in), Arnold thought it prudent to pass the bill.  What will this bill accomplish you ask?  Safety?  Hell no.  What people fail to realize is that criminals don't care about the law.  I know that may come as a shock, but is the truth.  Will this keep ammunition out of the hands of criminals (some of whom are not allowed to own guns)?  Doubtful at best.  My friends you must understand that AB962 will punish those who obey the laws.  I now have to go through a bunch of bulls*it hoops to purchase ammo as a law abiding citizen! 


Here is the official statement from Arnold:

To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am signing Assembly Bill 962.

This measure would require vendors of handgun ammunition to keep a log of information on handgun ammunition sales, store ammunition in a safe and secure manner, and require the face-to-face transfer of ammunition sales.

Although I have previously vetoed legislation similar to this measure, local governments have demonstrated that requiring ammunition vendors to keep records on ammunition sales improves public safety. These records have allowed law enforcement to arrest and prosecute persons who have no business possessing firearms and ammunition: gang members, violent parolees, second and third strikers, and even people previously serving time in state prison for murder. Utilized properly, this type of information is invaluable for keeping communities safe and preventing dangerous felons from committing crimes with firearms.

Moreover, this type of record keeping is no more intrusive for law abiding citizens than similar laws governing pawnshops or the sale of cold medicine. Unfortunately, even the most successful local program is flawed; without a statewide law, felons can easily skirt the record keeping requirements of one city by visiting another. Assembly Bill 962 will fix this problem by mandating that all ammunition vendors in the state keep records on ammunition sales.

As Governor, I have sought the appropriate balance between public safety and the right to keep and bear arms. I have signed important public safety measures to regulate the sale and transfer of .50 caliber rifles, instituted the California Firearms License Check program, and promoted the use of microstamping technology in handguns. I have also vetoed many pieces of legislation that sought to place unreasonable restrictions and burdens on firearms dealers and ammunition vendors. Assembly Bill 962 reasonably regulates access to ammunition and improves public safety without placing undue burdens on consumers.

For these reasons, I am pleased to sign this bill.

If this isn't proof that the People's Republic of Kalifornia is doomed I don't know what is... I urge you to continue calling and letting the dictators politicians of this state know that you disapprove of them punishing you as a law abiding citizen.  Let your friends and family know, your rights are no longer safe in this state.  It is time to act (caveat: in a safe law abiding manner) and I urge you to take a stand.
