The election is one month away.



Justice Scalia’s seat is vacant. Ginsberg is 83 years old, Kennedy is 80, Breyer is 78, and Thomas is 68. The other four are 56-66. The average Supreme Court retirement or death occurs around age 75.

These are 5 vacancies that will likely come up over the next 4-8 years. The next President will have the power to potentially create a 7-2 Supreme Court skewed in their ideology. If the next President appoints 5 young justices, it will guarantee control of the Supreme Court for an entire generation. And 7-2 decisions will hold up much more over time than 5-4 decisions which are seemed to be lacking in mandate.

Hillary has made it clear she will use the Supreme Court to go after the 2nd Amendment. She has literally said that the Supreme Court was wrong in its Heller decision stating that the Court should overturn and remove the individual right to keep and bear arms. Period.

No matter who else is running and how good or bad he is, if Hillary Clinton wins and gets to make these appointments, you likely will never see another conservative victory at the Supreme Court level for the rest of your life.

  • Forked-tongued Libertarian VP candidate. Don’t be fooled. Apparently today’s Libertarian Party is not the one we grew up with but is instead a liberal socialist party.


Last week the US District Court for the Northern Mariana Islands Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona declared unconstitutional the NMI’s firearm registration requirement, the ban on rifles in calibers larger than .223, the ban on assault weapons, the ban on transporting operable firearms, and the $1,000 excise tax.


Shopping malls are doing all sorts of things to “increase security” in the wake of recent mass shootings. But they’re not doing the one thing that will work. Remember, you are on your own, and the only first responder guaranteed to be there when it happens, is you.

It turns out that the heroic volunteer firefighter who tackled and detained the Townville elementary school killer last week was armed with a pistol, and reportedly faces up to 5 years in prison if prosecuted. One of the wounded victims, a 6-year-old boy, has since died of his injuries.

The 8 signs of terrorism

ISIS: Go Commit Random Knife Attacks in Alleys, Forests, Beaches, “Quiet Neighborhoods”

And before you behead them, soften them up with a baseball bat, says ISIS.


CAIR = Hamas (a terrorist organization)

It seems that after a vocally anti-gun “celebrity” (who I can’t make myself name here) was robbed in “gun free” France last weekend while her bodyguard was elsewhere, she and many other celebrities are increasing their ARMED security. Go figure. We have a report that she tried calling for help on her cell phone just before the robbery, but that didn’t work out too well. 6 minutes later it was all over, and 2 minutes after that, the bodyguard showed up.

PETA opposes hunting deer to control the population, because they say it’s cruel. They prefer to let the deer starve. Literally.

Big Brother is still watching you at gun shows. Just an observation: I don’t think you have to display a car license plate while parked not on a public street. Just sayin’….

Hinds County (MS) injustice system

Embattled Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith, who has been arrested for allegedly illegally aiding criminal defendants with their court cases, says in a different case that eleven (11) felony convictions is not enough to classify a criminal as a habitual offender. Hinds County Circuit Judge Bill Gowan agrees.

Biased doctors

A new survey published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences concluded that Democrat doctors were 66% more likely to tell parents of small children to get rid of their guns than Republican doctors, who instead preferred to ask about safe storage of the firearms.

Meanwhile, an ad from Dr. Dareld Morris in Florida says if you are a man thinking about voting for Hillary Clinton, you may need to have your testosterone checked.

“Most are not aware of the effect low T can have on your mental state. For instance your ability to focus and think clearly,” the radio ad states.


Another attempted home invasion in north MS (Lee County). 3 perps, one sent to hospital & 2 on the loose.

Head shot. “People better take those clown mask[s] off… before the coroner does.”

An Alabama homeowner was fatally shot while chasing two burglary suspects.

A rabid coyote attacked two women and their dogs last Sunday in Wolcott, NY. The second coyote attack happened on Main Street, and the ‘yote chased the woman and her dogs, biting her in the leg and trying to follow her inside before her husband was able to shoot it. It doesn’t sound like 911 would have been much help.

Bear (pepper) spray failure


But also in Montana, the rangers still prefer you use pepper, saying it makes the bear very uncomfortable, and that eventually the bear should get tired of picking on you. Of course we note that the rangers are armed with guns.


An unidentified man was negligently reloading a gun at a southwest Florida gun show last weekend when he negligently shot himself in the finger and another unidentified man in the foot, all with one shot.

USFWS hunting

The US Fish and Wildlife Service is moving forward with new hunting regulations to permit more hunting and fishing activities in certain national wildlife refuges. See Table 1 (page 37) for details.


Billy Joe Cross, an icon of wildlife conservation in Mississippi, has died at the age of 85.

A little old entertainment

Bass Pro Shops acquires Cabela’s

Our report indicates that Bass Pro Shops (BPS) has made a deal to purchase Cabela’s for approximately $5.5 billion. The deal is expected to close in early 2017.

So far, we see no mention of closing any stores of either brand, or re-branding of stores into Bass Pro Shops.

All Cabela’s CLUB points and BPS Outdoor Rewards points will be unaffected by the acquisition and customers can continue to use their credit cards as they were prior to the transaction. BPS intends to “grow the Cabela’s brand” and intends to honor Cabela’s customer rewards and “sees potential over time to expand the program in the combined company.” But BPS is already doing market surveys on possible changes to its Rewards and credit card programs.
