Wonder how long it'll last...

Internets are back up at the house... for now...

Madison 5 Update

From WCI:
We plan to file the federal lawsuit against Madison tomorrow.

In addition to WCI as an organization, our attorneys have suggested that our case has better standing if we add some individual WCI members as plaintiff's.

Because of the memo that the Madison Police Department issued, our attorneys maintain that there has been a chilling effect on the ability of WCI members to exercise their right to carry in Madison for fear of police harassment/unlawful detainment.

If you live or work in Madison and are concerned about getting detained/unlawfully searched/firearm seized during a non-consensual stop, please contact me asap.

Being added as a plaintiff means that you would be listed on the official complaint. You would not need to speak to media at all (in fact we would prefer you do not) but you may at some point be deposed during the lawsuit so that we can prove that Madison's unconstitutional policy of detaining people merely because they are OC'ing is infringing on people's right to carry.

Please send me an email asap if you live or work in Madison and are reluctant to carry their for fear of unlawful police contact.

Ow... my pride...

At least that's how the Brady Bunch feels.

Apparently Jon Stewart hurt Paul Helmke's fragile feelings. I guess Stewart was on Oprah (I didn't watch it... and I can't bring myself to sit her and watch it...) and said something along the lines of-
that if all the guns were gone that there would be "a 100,000 percent increase in school bludgeonings"
Some people just can't wrap their heads around the fact that tools are just tools and that some people are just prone to violence, regardless of the tools on hand.

I so called it.

Magpul Dynamics is coming out with a new DVD set, and it's the one I've been asking for since the first Carbine set.

That news just made my day much better.  (Telephone and internet's been out at the house for three days or so due to the flooding. Of course I've been working all weekend, so I haven't really noticed.)

Monster Hunter Vendetta
