Roadblocks: Suppressors and Short Barreled Rifles

Posted 06-01-2020 at 10:43 PM by Blondebaerde
Updated 06-05-2020 at 11:38 AM by Blondebaerde

Speaking from WA State: suppressors are legal, as are short barreled rifles (SBRs). Class III (full auto), not at this time.

I'm irritated the Feds and States (some of them) erect BS laws, fees, and waiting periods that are not necessary. My recent acquisition story is below. Better as a blog post, the topic is a rant (though interesting RE state of "government" these days stopping you from exercising rights). Here we go:

Last summer (2019) thought I'd...

COVID-19: Personal Update 2020-03-19 From Kirkland WA

Posted 03-19-2020 at 10:44 AM by Blondebaerde

CORONAVIRUS

A deadly new virus from China, which causes respiratory illness and pneumonia, is spreading around the world. CDC calls it COVID-19. I live in Kirkland, WA, about two miles due south of the outbreak's original United States epicenter, with multiple cases and the first substantial deaths.

Lying Mass Media Scum

Posted 06-25-2018 at 03:13 PM by Blondebaerde

The media in this country are corrupt, this week has illustrated that graphically and frighteningly. Lie about border policy and so much more. There is little honest information. Bill O'Reilly and a few others remain honest, but the corruption comes after those who speak the truth. Witness what happened to O'Reilly, and is happening now to Glenn Beck.

Mass media's demise is in sight. CNN hides behind a faux blanket of "journalism," though it isn't and hasn't been...

Dear Google and Project Fi:

Posted 08-27-2017 at 02:28 PM by Blondebaerde
