BATFE issues cease and desist of the Honey Badger pistol.

There is a letter from the ATF issuing a “Cease and Desist” about the Honey Badger Firearm.

It appears that the ATF has decided that the Honey Badger is actually an illegal short barreled rifle.

The Q company is fighting this decision, and it is recommend you contact your congressional representatives if you disagree with the ATF’s stance on this.

This is Q’s response to the ATF:

The fear mongers are already pushing the narrative that this is the ATF’s first steps toward banning pistol braces. The might be right, but now is no the time to panic.

Now is the time to contact your reps.

Here are the links that Q suggests:

If you are concerned with this situation – as Q is – we urge you to contact the Department of Justice (ATF’s parent agency) by using the below OneClickPolitics link.


Additionally, we encourage you to reach out to the White House and ask President Trump to halt and rollback ATF’s efforts to issue arbitrary and capricious decisions affecting millions of legal gun owners.

Wayne LaPierre investigated by IRS

Well, well , well.

Wayne LaPierre

Supposed Gun rights activist pictured above

Looks like Wayne will have a new use for all those suits he has been buying with membership dues, i.e. standing in court.

The longtime head of the National Rifle Association, Wayne LaPierre, is being investigated by the IRS for potential criminal fraud linked to his personal taxes, a report said Monday.

The IRS probe, reported by the Wall Street Journal, comes after New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a civil suit against LaPierre this summer, alleging he and other top brass siphoned millions of dollars from the non-profit to fund lavish trips, expensive meals and other treats.

In a statement to the Journal, an attorney for LaPierre said: “We’re not aware of any inquiry, so it would be premature for us to comment.”

Don’t worry, he will have plenty of money from membership fees to fight this every step of the way! They don’t need that money for fighting new gun restrictions anyway, look at all the progress they made in Virginia.


Famous Mad Lad, John McAfee Arrested

Now we can all rest safer knowing John is locked up. Good to see the DOJ after the really dangerous people.

A little over a year after former tech guru (and one-time presidential candidate) John McAfee was arrested in the Dominican Republican (aboard a yacht carrying high-caliber weapons, ammunition and military-style gear), and two months after a “fake arrest” for wearing a thong mask

… on Monday the eccentric millionaire was arrested – this time for real – in Spain, where he is awaiting extradition to the US after he was charged with tax evasion by federal prosecutors who allege McAfee hid cryptocurrency, a yacht, and real estate as part of a conspiracy to evade taxes, which he forgot to pay from 2014 to 2018.

At the same time the SEC also charged the former programmer for promoting investments in initial coin offerings (ICOs) to his Twitter followers without disclosing that he was paid to do so. McAfee’s bodyguard, Jimmy Watson, Jr., was also charged for his role in the alleged scheme.

McAfee’s last tweet is from September 12, in which he explained why he is not voting for anyone: “Why would I choose one person over another to control me? Slave masters are the same. We are numbers rather than people, irrespective of the master.”

An indictment was unsealed today charging John David McAfee with tax evasion and willful failure to file tax returns, announced Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard E. Zuckerman of the Justice Department’s Tax Division and U.S. Attorney D. Michael Dunavant for the Western District of Tennessee.

The June 15, 2020 indictment was unsealed following McAfee’s arrest in Spain where he is pending extradition.

According to the indictment, John McAfee earned millions in income from promoting cryptocurrencies, consulting work, speaking engagements, and selling the rights to his life story for a documentary. From 2014 to 2018, McAfee allegedly failed to file tax returns, despite receiving considerable income from these sources. The indictment does not allege that during these years McAfee received any income or had any connection with the anti-virus company bearing his name.

According to the indictment, McAfee allegedly evaded his tax liability by directing his income to be paid into bank accounts and cryptocurrency exchange accounts in the names of nominees. The indictment further alleges McAfee attempted to evade the IRS by concealing assets, including real property, a vehicle, and a yacht, in the names of others.

If convicted, McAfee faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison on each count of tax evasion and a maximum sentence of one year in prison on each count of willful failure to file a tax return. McAfee also faces a period of supervised release, restitution, and monetary penalties.

Concurrently, the SEC also charged McAfee for promoting investments in initial coin offerings (ICOs) to his Twitter followers without disclosing that he was paid to do so. McAfee’s bodyguard, Jimmy Watson, Jr., was also charged for his role in the alleged scheme.

Coyotes Defeat USMC

After at least four coyote attacks, Marines at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, are being advised against jogging in the Wallace Creek area of the base at night.

An official in the game warden’s office at the Marine Corps base told Marine Corps Times on Friday that the advisory was still in effect.

There have been four reported coyote attacks in vicinity of the II Marine Expeditionary Force Information Group area command, according to a Wednesday Facebook post. The most recent attack occurred at 4 a.m.

“Until further notice, please do not run in this area after dark until the animal can be removed,” the post read.

The Marines and sailors were bitten on their legs, but the injuries were not serious, Nat Fahy, a Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, spokesman told Military.com.

“They all received medical treatment … including rabies post-exposure treatment, which is standard protocol,” Fahy said.

I think the real take away here is that I am tougher and meaner than all the USMC in North Carolina. Evidence posted above. I rest my case.
