Colt's Model 1915 Vickers Gun in .30-06

 After extended testing in 1913 and 1914, the US formally adopted the Vickers gun as the Model 1915. A contract was placed for licensed production of 125 guns by Colt, who had also taken contracts to produce Vickers guns for the UK and Russia. It would ultimately be the summer of 1917 before the first guns arrived for US Army use, and a total of 12,125 were made by the time production ended in September 1918 (in favor of the new Browning 1917 machine gun). Ten divisions of the American Expeditionary Force were equipped with Colt Vickers guns in .30-06 in World War One, and they gave good service on the battlefield. The are very scarce today because almost all surviving examples were sent to Britain as part of Lend-Lease in World War Two, and destroyed at the end of that conflict.

After Questioning The Constitution's Absolutism, Biden Creates Commission To Study Supreme 'Court-Packing'

Having refused to answer the question of whether a Biden administration would expand the Supreme Court (so-called 'court-packing') in mid-October, "we, the people" are perhaps closer to knowing the answer as to what happens next to the nation. 

As a reminder, when presidential candidate Joe Biden was asked by a reporter "will you stack the courts?" - he replied that voters "don't deserve" to know his stance until after the election...

And they're at it again.....

LONDON – Young people have hurled bricks, fireworks and gasoline bombs at police and set hijacked cars and a bus on fire during a week of violence on the streets of Northern Ireland. Police responded with rubber bullets and water cannons. 

The streets were calmer Friday night, as community leaders appealed for calm after the death of Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II's 99-year-old husband. But small gangs of youths pelted police with objects and set a car ablaze during sporadic outbreaks in Belfast.

Wait..... they didn't go through a background check first?

Wait..... I can buy guns over the iinternet?

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A Tennessee lawmaker says he plans to continue pushing for universal background checks despite a new state law allowing adults to carry firearms without a permit or a background checks.


“Without background checks we would have more felons getting guns,” said Stewart. “But the problem is, right now, our background check system has a huge loophole which is you can buy guns on the internet, in what’s called a private transaction without going through a background check.


I've yet to run across a site where I can buy a gun without it being shipped to an FFL, nor have I been to a local yard sale/marketplace website that even allows a person to advertise guns for sale.

Police Chief resigns after calling a spade a spade

The Minnesota police officer who shot and killed a Black man Sunday during a traffic stop, along with the Police Chief who supervised her and the department, have both resigned Tuesday after nights of rioting and looting rocked their community in the wake of the state's latest officer-involved shooting. 

In her resignation letter, Office Kim Potter wrote this without referencing the shooting: "I believe it is in the best interest of the community, the department, and my fellow officers if I resign immediately."

Shortly after the union announced Potter's resignation, Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott told reporters Chief Tim Gannon had also handed in his letter of resignation. The developments come after trouble broke out again during a second night of protests outside police headquarters in the Minneapolis suburb, CBS Minnesota reports.

Gannon's decision to step down comes after he was drawn into the backlash after his handling of a press briefing this week, where he made the mistake of characterizing a riot as, well, a riot.

Communicates using social media, then wonders how they got caught...

Four members of a California militia group associated with the anti-government “boogaloo” movement were indicted Friday on charges of conspiracy to obstruct justice in connection with a scheme to destroy records related to last year’s killing in Oakland of a federal Protective Services officer and the wounding of his partner, the U.S. Justice Department said. 

The indictment alleges that Rush, Blancas, Ybarra and Miksch, along with Carrillo, were members of the Grizzly Scouts, a militia group based in Northern California that connected via a Facebook group and periodically met in person for firearms training, federal prosecutors said.

It's a good thing they don't deliver welfare checks by mail anymore

A USPS mailwoman has been savagely beaten by two women who were accused of trying to rob stimulus checks from her van in Flint, Michigan. 

Footage shows the two women pounding the postal worker over the back of the head as they wrestle with her in the street, just yards away from a USPS truck which has a badly dented hood.
