Gun Rights and Mental Health - The Blaec Lammers Case

Here is an excellent article from the Kansas City Star which highlights one case in particular in which the NCIS system failed to address the mental health condition of one particular gun buyer with less than noble intentions.

How do we implement the reporting of mental health cases that are deserving of being added to the NCIS system and therefore denied the right to purchase firearms?

And who names their kid Blaec? Is it too difficult just to spell it the right way? As in Blake. Come on people.

Unit Public Affairs Representative

Well, as it turns out all this blogging and photography has led to my appointment as my Unit Public Affairs Representative. The previous Public Affairs guy is getting out of the army and the Colonel had taken notice of my work as my Battery Public Affairs Rep. So, they moved me up to Headquarters and I am now the Liaison NCOIC and Unit Public Affairs. Now I get to take pictures for the army!

This Weeks Funny Gun Pictures

The endless supply of funny gun pictures on the internet never ceases to amaze me...

True, there isn't a gun in the above photo. But a viper is as deadly as a gun and well, it's a funny photo.

Don't move, or the fish gets it!

There's Something About the Look of an Over and Under

I have my heart set on adding a decent over and under shot gun to my arsenal for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that I no longer want to be the guy at the skeet range shooting with a side by side 20in coach shotgun. And there's just something awesome about the classic look of a quality over and under like the photos below. My first will probably be a CZ woodland or similar.

Awesome 1911's - Black Knight vs White Knight

Check out this sweet pair of extremely unique 1911s. As you see, one represents the white knight and the other the black knight. I have no idea who made these or where you can find them but I'll continue doing some research and report back with an update.

UPDATE****  Found this site where I think this pair originated -

Old School - M60

You don't get much more bad ass than this. Old school Vietnam photo of a GI carrying an M60 with a belt of ammo while smoking a cigar. Much respect to all of our Vietnam vets!
