Gun Store Shootout

 There was a big shoot out at a local gun store last week. A man walked into the store with a loaded weapon. He was politely asked to leave and unload. He started to leave but then turned and started shooting, killing 2 people in the process. As you can imagine, all the guns carried by the staff came out and the shooter became the 3rd victim. In the melee, 2 other people were wounded.

It has become very difficult to find out any more information. There has been nothing about the motivation or mental state of the shooter and you only get crickets when you try to find out how many rounds were fired and which rounds hit which people. 

It seems to me that if you wanted to commit suicide, opening fire in a gun store would be a good way to do it.

Cancel Culture in the Big Easy

 So the New Orleans city council plans to re-name some 37 streets, parks and other civic monuments that had been named for Civil War figures. What I wonder is how Google Maps, Waze and other GPS aps are going to keep up with the name changes. Will the data base have both names or will people not be able to find the new street because the software only knows the old name? What is the cost of all these modifications? 

And as I said before, why do we still have things named after signers of the Southern Manifesto?

Concealed Carry Requalification


After 8 hours of lectures I was in a hurry to get done. That's my excuse for the fliers.
