Packin' for the 'pocalypse: Several readers have sent me letters with this theme: "Due to the erroneous Mayan prophecy date of December 21st, 2012, there is a strong possibility of some self-fulfilling prophecies on an individual level, such as suicides, murder-suicides, mass-suicides, or people 'going postal' in public places." They recommend that everyone that has a CCW permit or that lives in a Constitutional Carry state to fully exercise their right to carry (and pack a few extra magazines) between now and December 31, 2012. That sounds wise to me!

G.G. sent this: Congressman calls for ban on 3D printed guns. Note that only the lower receiver is printed in plastic. The upper group (the part that takes the chamber pressure) is all alloy and steel. So the "invisible to metal detectors" claim is utter nonsense. Also note that the leftist editors of BoingBoing conspicuously omitted the congressman's party affilliation and home state. No great surprise that he is a Democrat from New York.

H.G. flagged this: Taking the Table to the Farm: Portraits of Radical Off-the-Grid Living. (Warning: One photo has frontal nudity. I guess this journalist missed the day they taught photo cropping.)

Decidedly Dangerous Dingbats Department: Pelosi Accuses GOP for Lack of Concern for Kwanzaa. Well, let's see...The First Amendment is supposed to make the government silent, neutral, and butt-out-ski about religious practices, so why does she have so much anguished concern? Congress shouldn't promote any religion, in particular. And does she realize that this is an entirely fabricated religious practice, to boot?
