Stupidity has no bounds! (me)
Lowell, Massachusetts is going to require gun permit applicants to write an essay to explain why they’re exercising their Second Amendment rights.
(via Lowell Sun):
A new firearms policy will go into place despite a final plea from gun-rights advocates Tuesday for looser restrictions.The policy requires anyone seeking a license-to-carry to take a gun-safety course. Anyone applying for an unrestricted gun license must state in writing why they should receive such a license, and to provide additional documentation, such as prior military or law-enforcement service, a prior license-to-carry permit, or signed letters of recommendation.
Critics who spoke Tuesday, and who’ve blasted the policy before, made one last attempt at persuading Police Superintendent William Taylor to make it less onerous on applicants.
“I will never write an essay to get my rights as an American citizen,” resident Dan Gannon said.
Taylor did agree to work with one resident, a trained firearms-safety instructor, to help shape a training course applicants will be required to take. The trainer, Randy Breton, strongly criticized Taylor moments earlier for what he said was intentionally expensive training to dissuade anyone from applying for a gun permit.
“It’s beyond ridiculous,” Breton said of courses he looked into. One costs $1,100 over five days, and another doesn’t offer any sessions through the rest of the year in Massachusetts.
Police Superintendent William Taylor has been bequeathed the authority to unilaterally set the firearms policy. Hail to victory! Ignore that shredded document in the corner. Certainly ignore the gentleman in the picture with the white wig, looking down at you. He ain’t smil’n.
That’s right, if you have the honor of living in Lowell, Mass., you get to pick and choose what parts of the US Constitution suits you. Nothing like a little government sanctioned income discrimination. Don’t have $1,100 bucks sitting around in the sock drawer? Too bad for you and no gun for you.
What’s next, a $1,100 dollar poll-tax?
Geez, what a bunch of East Coast whack jobs.

The above is a picture of my new M&P 15, manufactured by Smith & Wesson. This is my review of this weapon. I have had several thousand hits on my review of the KHAR 40 and 😄 40. So I have decided to review some of the other weapons in my arsenal of democracy.
I DO NOT ADVERTISE. I DO NOT TAKE ANY CONTRIBUTIONS FROM READERS OR CERTAINLY NOT MANUFACTURERS. I REVIEW WEAPONS THAT I HAVE PURCHASED WITH MY OWN MONEY.
The M&P 15 shoots the Soviet block 5.45 x 39 round. I chose this weapon over the 5.56/223 because, frankly, the round is (was) a hell-of-a-lot cheaper. I purchased my 15 in November of 2008, ditto for the ammo. I bought 10,000 rounds at .19 cents per round. Most of my ammo sources are now over .26 cents.
The price gap between the 556 and the 545 has narrowed, but still make sense for you to choose the aforementioned.
Regarding ballistics, there is some good source material on the web, but you will find that side by side comparisons between the 545 and 556 are very comparable. This post is a work in progress and I will post data as it comes available (let me know what your experience was.)
If you have fired the 556 then you have fired the 545. After the break-in period, I have had no problems with the weapon. I did have 2 failures to feed in the first 200 rounds. But my buddy who purchased the exact same weapon had zero f.t.f. problems – just my luck.

This is what happens when you sit back on your ass and let liberals shred your rights and laws.
England, sadly, you are getting the government you deserve.
