A few things caught my eye this morning.
First, I was amused by an faux pas from the loony anti-gun deranged Left which made wild claims about possible after market customizations of an AR-15 rifle system. HERE
In a tweet, USAToday said that the Texas Church Massacre nutjob could have modified his rifle with – wait for it – a “chainsaw bayonet”. Not only that, these “chainsaw bayonets” are widely available! Gotta git me one o’ them!

Whoa! THAT’s scary!
But wait… there’s more scarier scary to come! My emphases:
But where would USA Today get the idea that such an attachment was widely available and widely used? Trying to find such a device on the internet leads to results largely made up of the popular video game series Gears of War, where the super-muscular heroes use rifles with chainsaws to slay subterranean terrors. There were also plenty of DIY projects for such devices and there was a small company that claimed to sell them, but they’re marketed as a way to kill zombies.
The internet was the internet it and didn’t hold back as the paper was put through the wringer on twitter. #ChainsawBayonet was trending with image after image from people who photoshopping other ridiculous attachments onto USA Today’s AR-15 image. Such attachments included a lightsaber, a taco, a little corgi, (my personal favorite) 10 smaller AR-15s, and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. [The most terrifying mod of all!]
Proving that the criticism went completely over their head, USA Today put out a second tweet to clarify their first one, saying: “To clarify, the video shows both the shooter’s modifications, as well as other possible modifications. The shooter did not use a chainsaw bayonet.”
Also, the DailyWire reports on how the Left is lying about the legally armed citizen who shot the wack-job perp when he came out of the church he was shooting up (and still able to kill more people. No, no! That legally armed citizen had nothing to do with stopping the perp. HENCE… abolish the 2nd Amendment.
Pope Francis has banned, beginning in 2018, the sale of cigarettes through Vatican City. Vatican employees have been able to purchase cigarettes at a much lower price than in Italy, with its taxes, etc. There is quite the “black” market of fags that flow from the opportunity, as you can imagine… so that’s going away.
If Pope Francis didn’t have a food-taster before, he might do well to get one now. I can see beady-eyed monsignori, gardeners, and uscieri eyeing him from shadow filled corners, clenching and unclenching their shaky hands.
Speaking of Pope Francis, he has embarked on a new Wednesday audience series topic: liturgy.
I admit that my arrhythmia set in full force with that news.
However, he has started out with a topic that bodes well for all of us: the use of mobile phones and cameras at Mass. Hopefully the next speech will be on the pressing problems of coming to church with open or closed toed footwear, mercy and chapel veils, and, of course, checking watches during sermons… or perhaps, even worse… iWatches.
The moderation queue is ON… for ALL posts right now.
