Fifty million dollars and this is the best you can get?



Fear driven by ignorance is usually unreasoning fear. Not the sort of thing on which common sense laws are built. And these “Everytown” people have certainly wasted no time demonstrating their ignorance.

H/T to Thirdpower.

BTW, for a beautiful takedown of Bloomberg, that veritable god of grassroots, go here.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Joel, re your April 14 post on your OSB deteriorating – if you can find a roll end or leftovers and don’t mind a high tech industrial look, Tyvek wrap will do a lot more for your comfort and preservation of the OSB than siding. You’ll need the Tyvek tape too, and a staple gun. The copycat products are not as good. Installed and taped correctly, Tyvek will totally block infiltration while preserving the OSB until you can put siding on. One or two coats of mismatch exterior paint or polyurethane before the Tyvek will seal the OSB. You will have the most comfortable, warm winters without heavy use of your wood pile, and cool summers. Wrapping my house (I’m in a very high wind, cold/hot environment) was one of my best decisions. It really works. See Backwoods Home articles by Dorothy Ainsworth where she shows Tyvek wrap installation on several structures.

    Wow. That ad is so amazingly bad in so many ways I had to spend some time poking around to see if it might be a parody.

    Design looks like it was done by a high schooler. Message is … what is that message, anyhow? But or lordy, lordy that cartridge …

    Thanks for the laugh, Joel. (Thanks for the linkage, too. But I’ll be laughing all day.)

    snicker, well at least they made the bore large enough to fit the cartridge.

    Quite possibly the stupidest thing I’ve seen in a long time! Just wow.

    “Quite possibly the stupidest thing I’ve seen in a long time! Just wow.”

    Agreed. And when you’re talking about the already-bottomless ignorance of anti-gunners, that’s really sayin’ something!

    Wow – I would totally be willing to put something together that’s at least twice as good as that for 100 million.

  7. Every time I see one of these astounding cartridge-firing whizbangers, I think of the scene in Hot Shots! Part Deux where ol’ Charlie, having finally run out of belt for his machinegun, simply picks up loose rounds out of a box and flings them at the bad guys, felling them all instantly. Awesome!

    The whole thing is worth the view (despite the video quality), but the classic moment in question is at about 0:55 on the timeline.

    ’bout like that, Bloomie?

    hmmm my firearm MUST be defective… it discharges the casing out the side while the projectile is released down range….!

    Heads up: Bob Owens says the ad is a parody:

    Yeah, with the antis it’s definitely hard to tell …

  10. Joel says:

    Aw, crap. Really?

    I hate being fooled by parodies, but this one is too subtle by half.

    Well, at least they have it coming out the correct end! 🙂

To the stake with the heretic!
