Potter actor killed by evil, malicious knives!


One of the Harry Potter actors was killed by a young man weilding a knife. Of course, the British government blames the incident on the knives, instead of on the kid who was using the knives. The rhetoric sounds vaguely familiar. Oh, yes, that's it. Replace "knife" with "gun" and you have the anti-gun movement in the USA.

People, inanimate objects don't kill you. Psycho's kill you. You can take away guns, knives, forks, and pens from the populace, but then the criminals will still have them. And Joe the psycho from down the street? He'll kill you with a rock if he has to, he's not picky.

STAR-15 update

I spent an inordinate amount of time working on my AR-15 rifle today.

I had to use a Dremel to cut off a lot of material from the Front Sight Base so that I could pound out the pins holding it on. Hours of Dremeling and pounding later, and I finally got it off.

I also cut off the aluminum Delta Ring so that I can bolt on my tactical forearm. (Whenever it's back in stock and I get to order it...)

Now I have the low-profile gas block on, and I just need the bolt carrier group, charging handle, and forearms to complete the assembly.
