You Started It

A young man with his pants hanging half off his butt, two gold front teeth, and a centimetre-thick gold chain around his neck; walked into the local welfare office to pick up his cheque. He marched up to the counter and said, "Hi, you know, I just hate drawing welfare. I'd really rather have a job. I don't like taking advantage of the system, getting something for nothing."
The social worker behind the counter said, "Your timing is excellent". We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur and bodyguard for his beautiful daughter. You'll have to drive around in his 2016 Mercedes-Benz CL, and he will supply all of your clothes."
"Because of the long hours, all your meals will be provided. You'll also be expected to escort the daughter on her overseas holiday trips. This is rather awkward to say, but you will also have, as part of your job, the assignment of satisfying her sexual urges as she is in her mid-20's and has a rather strong sex drive."
The guy, stood there, wide-eyed and mouth agape, and finally said, "You're fuckin' with me!"
The social worker said, "Yeah, well... you started it."

A hat tip to Bob C who sent me this one. 

All the best,

Took A Walk To My Local FFL Today... pick up some ammo. In NY state, when we order online, ammo was supposed to have been sent to a dealer instead of we untrustworthy peons receiving it directly, that as per the NY UnSAFE Act. Yes, I know, some dealers will deliver it directly because the part of the law requiring ammo be delivered to a dealer kind of went down the toilet. That was because it also required a background check each time you ordered ammo and NY state probably found out it was illegal to run federal NCIC or NICS checks on us just for ammo purchases (and I know that it is illegal for a fact). Still, some dealers refuse to send it directly to the customer and PSA, the dealer from whom I purchased my ammo, is one of them. The thing is though, I could not beat or match the price elsewhere for CCI Mini-Mags in the amount I ordered so I ordered from them.

Anyway, as I was saying, I took a walk from home to the FFL to get the ammo. The distance each way was 1.2 miles, not far by almost anyone's standards but maybe a bit of a hike for a fat boy like me. Then again, I often walk up to 4 to 5 miles in a day so for me in particular it was a nice stroll. It was even a nicer stroll because I was pushing my grandson, of almost10 months, in his stroller in front of me.

We got to the store and I told the proprietor I had something to trade for ammo and indicated my grandson. It was amusing, at least to us. He gave me my ammo, did not charge me the $10 the NY SAFE Act allows him to charge for the transfer (nor did he confiscate my grandson) and then held the door open for us but only after trying to get a rise out of RJ. (Ryan John - I am the only one who calls him RJ at the peril of my life cause my daughter hates it when I do so.) I made RJ laugh and all was well. The 2,000 rounds of 22LR ammo was dumped into the bottom of the stroller and off we went. The walk home was a little longer, maybe by 1/4 to 1/2 of a mile more because we stopped in a couple more stores and we had to go out of our way to get to the second of those but that was okay as I was enjoying it. By then, RJ was out cold so it did not matter to him how much further we walked.

So why bring him along to pick up my ammo? Well it was good incentive for me to walk instead of drive and I am somewhat of a fat body in need of some exercise and taking him for a walk got me going. It was also my way of introducing my first grandson to the world of shooting and to start to mold him as a stalwart of the RKBA (right to keep and bear arms). No, it meant nothing to his young mind today but maybe after enough trips like this with gunga gramps it will start to sink in by osmosis!

Pregnant Woman Runs Down Purse Snatcher... retrieve her purse. No not afoot; although, she tried to catch him on foot, then jumped into her SUV and literally ran him down with her vehicle. He was run down, injured and arrested and is being charged with charged with felony breaking and entering, larceny, and misdemeanor damage to property. The sad part is that the driver was also arrested and was charged with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon. (Source.)

Video source.

If it all happened as reported, I think that the alleged dirtbag thief got what I believe he deserved and it should have been left at that. While I believe it wonderful, I must advise anyone from emulating the woman who ran him down since it is not legal in any way shape or form to do what it was she was alleged to have done under the reported circumstances. I am sure (my opinion) she was aware of such but think it absolutely amazing how those raging hormones during pregnancy can affect a woman.

The saddest part is that he probably will sue her and win a large tort claim.

All the best,
