Article – The last big frontier

An article about folks moving into the neighborhood. And a nod to Friend Of The Blog ,Rawles.

ASKED by an out-of-stater where the nearest shooting range is, Patrick Leavitt, an affable gunsmith at Riverman Gun Works in Coeur d’Alene, says: “This is Idaho—you can shoot pretty much anywhere away from buildings.” That is one reason why the sparsely populated state is attracting a growing number of “political refugees” keen to slip free from bureaucrats in America’s liberal states, says James Wesley, Rawles (yes, with a comma), an author of bestselling survivalist novels. In a widely read manifesto posted in 2011 on his, Mr Rawles, a former army intelligence officer, urged libertarian-leaning Christians and Jews to move to Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and a strip of eastern Oregon and Washington states, a haven he called the “American Redoubt”.

Article – Armed men in body armor at Walmart tell police they were preparing for doomsday

A report of a car full of men in body armor with semi-automatic weapons brought Lexington police to the Walmart on Richmond Road on Saturday night. Officers found two men, one in body armor, a 20-year-old woman and a six-month old baby.

Lt. Jackie Newman said that when Lexington police officers got the three people out of the car about 11:15 p.m., they said they were preparing for doomsday and needed supplies. A 26-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman were in the car with their 6-month-old baby and a 19-year-old man, police spokeswoman Brenna Angel said Monday.

And that, my friends, is how derpes is spread.
Now, sure, other than the marijuana these guys didn’t do anything illegal…but, for the love of Crom, there’s a time and place to be kitted out and the parking lot of WalMart isn’t that place…(unless it really is the end of the world. In that case, carry on.)
It’s hard enough to survive the end of the world, its even harder to survive it when you’re locked up in a holding cell while the cops try to figure out if you broke any laws.
If you just bought a shiny new “black rifle” and some body armour, invite Cletus and Jethro to your doublewide to look at it…don’t meet them at the WalMart parking lot where the whole Jihadi-sensitized world can see you. Think, people, think!
