Fitting Punishment

Here’s an interesting one:

A psychology student has been arrested for a hate crime after allegedly hurling anti-Semitic slurs at three Jewish children before spitting on one in Brooklyn last week.
Christina Darling, 21, was arrested on Friday and has been charged with aggravated harassment as a hate crime, endangering the welfare of a child and menacing [behavior].
In the video, the St Francis College student can be seen stomping up to an eight-year-old boy playing with two of his younger siblings – aged seven and two – and launched into an anti-Semitic tirade before spitting on him.
‘Hitler should have killed you all. I’ll kill you and know where you live,’ she yelled.

See, I don’t buy the “hate crime” thing at all, but spitting at someone is classed as assault, and a minor felony, ergo  this unpleasant little virago deserves some kind of punishment…

…which, under the reign of World-Emperor Kim would be that she be exiled for one year to live in Israel — Jerusalem, preferably.

The NYGovt could pick up the tab, which would be less than keeping her incarcerated.

News Roundup

All the news that’s fit to mock:

I was going to say something about Commie governments always giving it to you in the ass, but then I remembered that I have an appointment with my tax advisor next week.

thirty grand for a seat?

the actual headline has been edited for clarity.

asshole killed over six dozen people, and he’s up for parole?

oh, that climate change:  is there anything it can’t do?

you whiners wanted equality, you got it.  Sucks, dunnit?

given how all corporations are so woke these days, it won’t change a thing.

From the Dept. of Covidiocy:

Dispatches from the Homo Wars:

their property, theirs to decide how to dispose of it.  Imagine doing the same with Muslims

Caitlyn Jenner and Eddie Izzard were unavailable for comment.

clearly, some people are unaware of the meaning of the term “the late”.

    (no problem, toots) 

…live by the mamba, die by the mamba.

always call ahead [sic].

And speaking of sex-crazed parents, here’s self-confessed sex maniac Amanda Holden (50):



So I got this news via (see sidebar for link):

Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. Reintroduces the Marlin 1895 SBL Lever-Action Rifle

“We are excited to officially flip the switch and let our customers know that Marlin is back,” said Ruger President and CEO, Chris Killoy. “Since the move of over 100 truckloads of equipment and inventory back in November 2020, our engineering team took the 1895 through a complete design and production review focused on achieving the highest quality, accuracy, and performance standards. The end result is a quality rifle, produced using modern manufacturing methods, that consumers will be sure to enjoy and proud to own.”

This first model is just the beginning of the reintroduction of the Marlin brand and illustrates the improved manufacturing processes that deliver reliable, attractive firearms. These processes will result in the introduction of additional Marlin models, calibers and variations over the coming years.

All well and good.  Then comes this little sting in the tail:

Due to the anticipated strong demand and the limited quantity of Ruger-made Marlin lever-action rifles, Ruger encourages retailers to contact their distributors for availability and advises consumers not to leave deposits with retailers that do not have confirmed shipments.

Translation:  “We’re going to make these fantastic rifles again, but just not quite as many so that we can keep prices artificially high.”

And I bet they’re going to disfigure those “RM” Marlin rifles with that stupid and unnecessary Ruger warning that “guns are dangerous” (right-click to embiggen):

It’s enough to make you sick.

Not Even That

From Glenn, speaking about the latest offering from SIG:

I Do Like SIGs But This Seems More About Bling

Exactly.  They’ve discovered a market — the gadget-obsessed gun owner — and they’re milking it for all it’s worth.  And good luck to them, say I.

I don’t care for SIGs, because for some reason, I’ve never found a full-sized model that fits my hand as well as a 1911 or Browning High Power.  (And before you start making suggestions that all I need to do is try this model or that model, and all will be peace and love and kittens;  don’t bother, because I have.)

I fact, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the only non-1911 SIG I’d care to own is the venerable P210:


And the fact that I’d like to have one even though it’s chambered for the detestable 9mm Europellet should say it all.
