Jimmy Carter – an admitted gun owner – wants to ban “assault weapons.”
After committing an act of felinicide against his sister-in-law’s cat, maybe Jimmy should consider beating his own guns into a peanut combine.
While we're on the subject of guns, here's a little Tuesday morning gun porn (click images to enlarge)...
Here’s a 1923 L.C. Smith double-barreled 12 ga. shotgun. Old Paco bought this from a friend of his back in the early 1940’s, when they were both kids. The gun is still in great condition; note the glossy stock and the antique patina on the metal plate.
This is a Ruger Super Blackhawk that Ma Paco bought for Old Paco back when he was still chasing bootleggers (Old Paco gave it to me maybe 10 years ago). I’ve never fired this weapon, myself; I saw Old Paco shoot it once – one-handed - and I guess his grip wasn’t too tight because it kicked so bad that it sliced his hand open. He says he and the boys conducted some "ballistics tests" on it (i.e., went down to the junk yard to do some plinking) and that it would shoot a hole in an engine block. The action is still real tight, and that double-click as you pull the hammer back…well, I wouldn’t wanna be a burglar poking around in the dark and hear that noise.
