Explosion At The US-Canada Border

And that’s about all we know, despite reporting otherwise.

About the only thing most outlets agree on is that it was a car, two people inside it were killed, and a CBP worker was injured. We’ll see.


It was either a confirmed terrorist attack, or it’s unknown.

The car was entering the US from Canada, entering Canada from the US, or was just sorta there headed to a CBP building.

Yep, the usual rush to get the scoop on the other news service, and real confirmed facts be damned. And it drives conspiracy theories, because some loon is going to latch onto one version or the other. I remember that happening with the Sandy Hook school shooting. Some folks stuck with the early unattributed claims of multiple shooters and decided that blaming it on the one psycho was just a coverup. Or the ones who seized on the screwed up early victim reporting to claim that no one was killed and it was a pro-gun control hoax.

9 times out of ten, I don’t think these are cover ups or hoaxes. It’s some incompetent reporter looking for a major scoop getting made up stories from someone not necessarily on the scent, or attached to the investigation, who wants to feel briefly important. And being incompetent, the “reporter” proceeds to flub even the BS. All in the name of getting there first, with dreams of a Pulitzer.

TZP Column: ATF Loses Again

The “ghost gun” rule got tossed.

Fifth Circuit On “Ghost Gun” Rule
You’ve got to love the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals; they’ve been on a roll lately. They shot down the bump-stock ban in Cargill v. Garland. They struck down the ATF’s pistol brace rule in Mock v. Garland (which was the basis for the Northern District of Texas likewise ruling against the ATF.

Now they’ve turned their attention to the odious ATF’s equally odious frame/receiver rule (declaring unfinished, inert lumps of metal to be firearms) in VanDerStok et al v, Garland. A three judge panel ruled against it.

Gotta Love The Gateway Pundit

You may recall that a Dim running for the Virginia House of Delegates got outed as running a porn channel with her hubby. The election was yesterday, and the results are in, as are the reports of her loss.

Daily Mail: Porn Dem’ Susanna Gibson LOSES in Virginia

Fairly staid; but I’ll give ’em a bonus point for — ahem — slipping this in: “Gibson’s race was one of the most watched…

Ah! But The Gateway Pundit…

Democrat Porn Star Susanna Gibson Goes Down

I figure the Hofts live for the chance to do headlines like that.

TZP Column: Seventh Circuit Upholds Illinois Assault Weapon Ban

I Expect Clarence Thomas IS Fuming Right About Now
Because a three judge panel of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals just upheld, 2-1, Illinois’ “assault weapon” ban in Bevis v. Naperville (which is actually six separate challenges to “assault weapon” bans in Illinois, consolidated), and mangled BRUEN in the process. To do this, the lying bastards started with the BS “weapons of war” argument. And went downhill from there.

Honestly, this decision reads like something you might expect from the Ninth Circuit.
