  • Nothing Fishy About Trout (Dave Barry)

    I don't know about Idaho, but the fishing last September in Yellowstone was poor because of the drought, and the fishing in Pennsylvania last month was poor because of the excessive rains.

    I wonder if Dave Barry was fishing in Yellowstone three years ago: there was a guy fishing in the Firehole River at one of the geyser basin areas who was obviously more interested in looking good than fishing good. He was finely dressed in the newest vest, waders and hat just a few yards from a pedestrian bridge where he would be seen by all who passed -- casting repeatedly to the opposite bank where hot water from the geysers flowed steadily into the river. On second thought, it might have been John Kerry.

    LOL! Thanks for posting this, it made my morning.

    So much truth actually:

    Many experts agree that the reason Europe has become an intellectual wasteland is that all of the industrious and motivated European citizens had the good sense to emigrate to the United States over the past 100 to 150 years.

    "The cupboard was left bare, so to speak," notes respected historian Dr. Peter Sanvorth. "While the best and brightest of the Old Country found their way to America's shores, left behind were buffoons like Jacques Chirac and madmen like Adolf Hitler.

    Hmmm-- Kansas is not the state I expected to have a problem with this.

    I could be mistaken, but this is something a governor could lose her seat over.

    Kansas, although overwhelmingly Republican, is pretty evenly split between moderates and conservatives. They spend all their money battling each other in the primaries so that when the general election comes the RATs have more cash. Many of the moderate pubbies here would rather vote for a RAT than a conservative, so we end up with Sebelius as governor, although the previous gov, a RINO, was not much different: he also vetoed CC and was re-elected.

    The Sludge Report

    After just two weeks on the air, Air America Radio, the fledgling liberal talk-radio network featuring Al Franken, Janeane Garofalo, and that really loud woman from Florida, appears to have encountered serious cash-flow problems.

    Stop the presses!!! There’s nothing more exciting than half a story from a third hand source!!!!

    Insiders tell SLUDGE, that the reason the network was pulled off the air this morning in Chicago and Los Angeles, the network's second- and third-largest markets, was because, the owner of both stations, Arthur Liu of Multicultural Broadcasting, said, the network bounced a check and owes him more than $1 million! The run-on sentence, tortured grammar and the exclamation point clearly means it’s true!!

    Only it isn’t.

    Normally we’d let this go because “habitual liars” like Drudge are laughable, and ridicule is our business.

    But  Arthur Liu --- not funny. He lied to us, he ripped us off and now we’re chasing him down with a pipe wrench. It’s a metaphor.

    Here’s what really happened:

    This Liu-ser was ripping off our boss Evan Cohen big time (he can’t do that, that’s our job). Evan found out about it and he stopped payment on a check to keep Liu-cifer from ripping him off even more. You can touch Evan for the occasional meal or drinks but a million bucks is crossing the line. And if we ever get low on cash, we can always call Barbra Streisand. Or any of the
    Baldwins. Except Stephen.

    So we got screwed, Liu’d, and tattooed. How Liu can you get? In Liu of payment. Liu’d and lascivious behavior. These write themselves. What we’re getting at is that we hate him.

    So now everyone’s saying we’re going down the dumper in Chicago and Los Angeles, but what they don’t tell you is that we’re still on in Portland. And we OWN Portland. And let’s not forget Riverside and Plattsburgh. And New
    York.  And streaming on the internet. And XM. And Sirius. Actually we’re fine.

    So cool your jets. Air America Radio isn’t dead, we’re in court and we’re going to slam Liu’s head in a car door. Another metaphor. We hope to be back on the air tomorrow or the next day in those markets.

    In the meantime, why don’t you give Arthur a call at (212)966-1059.

    Arthur Liu, I wouldn’t show your face around here.

    Or Riverside. Or Plattsburgh.

    Sebelius vows veto of concealed carry



    TOPEKA — Gov. Kathleen Sebelius said Friday she would veto a bill allowing residents to carry concealed handguns.

    “I am not a fan of conceal-and-carry measures, and while I haven't seen the final bill, unless there's something in it I don't understand, it would be my intention to veto it,” she said at a news conference.

    Supporters of the measure had hoped that Sebelius, a Democrat, might let the bill become law without her signature. The governor said that wouldn't happen.

    Sebelius said she hadn't seen any evidence that Kansans would be safer under such a law.

    “Our crime rates are better than any of the surrounding states with conceal and carry,” she said.

    Lawmakers adjourned their regular session Friday. It takes a two-thirds majority in each chamber to override a governor's veto.

    Supporters of the bill say they probably will mount an intense campaign over the next three weeks to persuade lawmakers to override her veto when they return to Topeka on April 28.

    However, they agreed it would be difficult to get 84 members of the 125-member House and 27 members of the 40-member Senate to override.

    When the bill passed Thursday, it tallied 28 votes in the Senate and 78 in the House.

    “We haven't decided one way or the other whether to try to override a veto,” said Rep. Candy Ruff, a Leavenworth Democrat and the bill's main supporter in the House. “There will be too many Democrats who will jump off. There will be too many of them who voted for the bill who will not cross the governor. It's that simple.”

    Under the legislation, a $150 license issued by the attorney general's office would be required before a handgun legally could be carried secretly. A license holder would have to be at least 21, a U.S. citizen and a Kansas resident.

  • Triggering Memories At the NRA Museum, Tommy Gun Devotees Can Zero In on a Classic

    03/22/2004 10:52:28 AM PST · 8 of 8
    TroutStalker to neverdem
    Thompson himself didn't invent the gun (though he did invent the term "submachine gun"). He found a moneyed investor (Thomas Fortune Ryan) and thereby raised the capital to assemble a first-rate design team. But the two primary engineers -- Oscar Payne, of the unschooled genius type that also figures prominently in firearms design, and Theodore Eickhoff, a gifted mechanical engineer -- surpassed even their sponsor's grandest hopes. They invented a classic.

    I met the sons of Payne and Eickoff at the NRA convention in Kansas City several years ago. They were displaying together for the first time in public the pair of presentation Thompsons the DOD had made and engraved with their fathers' names to honor their work.

    I'll have to find the pamphlet they had that they both autographed for me, as well as a pic I took of the two of them with the firearms.

    Several years ago, I fired a Thompson at the Gun Store in Las Vegas. It handled exactly as I expected it would.

    I gotta move out of Kansas to a state where I can own one of those babys.

  • Missouri Supreme Court Upholds Constitutionality of Concealed Carry Law

    02/26/2004 3:24:25 PM PST · 53 of 70
    TroutStalker to Missouri
    From the Kansas City Star:


    Concealed weapons OK in Missouri, but not Jackson County




    The Kansas City Star

    JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri Supreme Court ruled today that most Missourians can apply for permits to carry concealed guns, but denied that right to residents of Jackson and three other counties.

    However, the court's ruling in the contentious, decade-long battle over hidden handguns strongly suggested that a future lawsuit could block handgun permits in the state's other 110 counties and the city of St. Louis.

    The Supreme Court voted 5-2 to overturn a lower court decision that had declared the state's new concealed weapons law unconstitutional. But, in an opinion written by Judge Stephen N. Limbaugh Jr., the court found that the new law violated the state Constitution on other grounds.

    The high court's decision found that the cost of issuing permits violated the Constitution's Hancock Amendment by imposing an unfunded mandate on county sheriffs.

    But the court ruled that it had evidence that the costs of issuing permits exceeded state funding only in Jackson, Camden, Green and Cape Girardeau counties. Therefore, the law regarding the issuance of concealed-gun permits is unconstitutional only in those counties, the court ruled.

    The question of whether the permits are an unfunded mandate in other counties requires proof on a county-by-bounty basis, Limbaugh wrote. The court, he said, would not speculate about those costs and would not take up the issue of whether counties could voluntarily absorb the cost of issuing the permits.

    In a dissenting opinion, Chief Justice Ronnie White wrote that the law should be held unconstitutional statewide because all counties will incur increased costs.

    The law, enacted last September when the General Assembly overrode Gov. Bob Holden's veto, allows county sheriffs to charge applicants up to $100 for a permit to carry a concealed gun. But the law also allowed the money to be used only for training and equipment.

    The Supreme Court ruled that the fee did not cover the costs of issuing the permits, which include additional personnel and the $38 charged by the Highway Patrol to check fingerprints and perform a criminal background check.

    “Although some of the increased costs may be incurred for training and equipment and properly reimbursed from the (application fee), substantial costs may be incurred for other purposes, as well,” Limbaugh wrote. “If so, there is an unfunded mandate.”

    Advocates on both sides of the issue called the decision a victory.

    Richard Miller, a Kansas City lawyer who represented people challenging the law, said the decision means that all it takes is one person in each county to challenge the law. No county can avoid incurring significant costs in issuing the permits and the court has held that such costs are unconstitutional unless they are reimbursed by the state, he said.

    “If counties start issuing permits, there is a plan to (challenge the law) if we are asked by any citizen in those counties,” Miller said. “We have the right to ask for costs and attorney fees from any county that loses. So (county officials) should be very careful about incurring unnecessary expenses before they attempt to issue any permits.”

    Rep. Larry Crawford, the Centertown Republican who carried the bill through the legislature last year, said the decision simply allows some counties to choose not to issue permits to their residents. But residents of other counties who have permits will be able to carry concealed guns statewide.

    In addition, the court found constitutional a provision of the law that allows anyone over the age of 21 to carry concealed weapon within the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle.

    “We always said the car carry provision will take care of 90 percent of the people who want a concealed weapon,” Crawford said. “It will send a message to criminals that they ought to go to Illinois where citizens can't carry a (concealed) gun in their cars.”

    Missouri's concealed guns law at a glance


    Associated Press

    Key elements of Missouri's law allowing most adults to seek permits to carry concealed guns:

    APPLICANTS

    Missourians at least age 23 may apply to their county sheriff for a permit to carry concealed guns. Based on Thursday's Missouri Supreme Court ruling that otherwise upheld the constitutionality of the law passed last year, permits aren't required to be issued in four counties that argued to the court that the permit process was an unfunded mandate: Jackson, Cape Girardeau, Greene and Camden. An applicant must be a U.S. citizen and either live in Missouri for six months or be stationed in the state with the U.S. military. Applicants must undergo state and federal criminal background checks and pay $100 for a three-year permit, with a renewal cost of $50.

    DISQUALIFICATION

    Permits are denied to anyone who has been charged with or convicted of a felony; convicted of a violent misdemeanor; or twice convicted of driving while intoxicated in the previous five years; dishonorably discharged from the military; is mentally incompetent; or is believed by the sheriff to be "a danger to himself or others."

    TRAINING

    Applicants must complete an eight-hour training course on handgun safety and marksmanship, as well as the safe care, cleaning and storage of firearms. The course must include a live firing exercise during which applicants must hit a silhouette target placed seven yards away with at least 15 of 20 shots.

    LOCATIONS

    Concealed guns are prohibited in police stations, prisons, courthouses, hospitals, airports, amusement parks and sports arenas that seat at least 5,000. Guns also are prohibited, unless those in charge grant exceptions, at schools, colleges, child-care facilities, churches, casinos and bars. Concealed guns are allowed elsewhere, unless private property owners conspicuously post signs prohibiting them.

    VIOLATIONS

    People with concealed gun permits who carry weapons into off-limits places cannot face criminal charges but can be asked to leave. If they refuse to leave, law officers can cite them with a $100 fine for the first offense. A second offense within six months is punishable by a $200 fine and a one-year suspension of the permit. A third offense within a year results in a fine up to $500 and a three-year revocation of the person's concealed guns permit.

    RECORDS

    Applications for concealed gun permits are closed to public inspection, and sheriffs are barred from releasing the information.

    VEHICLES

    Missourians at least age 21 can conceal guns within the passenger compartment of their vehicles without having to satisfy any of the requirements for carrying a concealed gun.

    IIRC, the law also allows for both residents and non-residents over the age of 21 to possess a concealed firearm within their vehicle without a CCP.
