Morning Chuckle. Or Yuckle.

cowboy

An old cowboy walks into a barbershop in Moose Jaw, Wyoming for a shave and a haircut. He tells the barber he can’t get all his whiskers off because his cheeks are wrinkled from age. The barber gets a little wooden ball from a cup on the shelf and tells the old cowboy to put it inside his cheek to spread out the skin.

When he’s finished, the old cowboy tells the barber that was the cleanest shave he’d had in years, but he wanted to know what would have happened if he had accidentally swallowed that little ball.

The barber replied, just bring it back in a couple of days like everyone else does.

Colorado Gun Companies Keep Promise and Leave State

Posted on May 6, 2013 by Dave Jolly 

Last month I reported that two firearms related companies had made announcements that they were leaving the state of Colorado due to the anti-gun laws the state had passed. Three companies had vowed to leave the state: Magpul, Alfred Manufacturing and HiViz.
The companies were being courted by a number of states that are proud of their gun-friendly laws, but the Colorado companies were being rather secretive as to where they might be heading. That is until now.
HiViz Shooting Systems, formerly located in Fort Collins, manufactures various parts for a number of weapons, some of which are now outlawed under Colorado law. They have just announced that are moving their entire operations to Laramie, Wyoming. In their announcement, HiViz stated that their decision on Laramie was partially due to their gun friendly laws, but also due to certain tax advantages and it is an hour away from their Fort Collins location, allowing most of their employees to make the drive and continue to work for them. Ground breaking for their new facility is expected to take place this summer.
Magpul Industries manufactures high capacity magazines that hold 30 rounds. Their magazines are now illegal in Colorado and they said that they would not stay in a state that outlaws their product. According to recent reports, Magpul has already started production in another state, but that location is being kept under wraps until after the NRA Convention being held in Houston.
All I can say is that I’m glad these companies are following through on their threats, even though it has to cost them a pretty penny to move their operations. I just wish more firearms related firms would leave their states that have passed anti-Second Amendment legislation.        More HERE!!!

State nullification laws threaten feds with felonies on gun controls

by Joel McDurmon on Jan 22, 2013

The Save America Foundation has collected data for the following report:

Texas, Florida, South Carolina, Missouri, Indiana, Tennesee, Oklahoma, North Dakota, New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have proposed legislation to either jail federal officials who violate the second amendment or to nullify federal laws to control guns within state borders.

Notably, the bills for Missouri and Florida threaten public officials, including federal agents, with felonies and jail time if they attempt to enforce certain federal gun control measures. The Missouri bill reads in part,

“Any official, agent, or employee of the federal government who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule, or regulation of the federal government upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is owned or manufactured commercially or privately in the state of Missouri and that remains exclusively within the borders of the state of Missouri shall be guilty of a class D felony.”

Florida’s likewise:

Any official, agent, or employee of the government of the United States, or employee of a corporation providing services to the government of the United States who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the United States government upon a civilian-owned firearm, a firearm accessory, or  ammunition that is owned, sold, transferred, or manufactured commercially or privately in Florida shall be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, shall be subject to imprisonment for not less than one   (1) year and one (1) day or more than five (5) years, a fine of not more than five thousand dollars ($5,000.00), or both.
