This One’s For Heather Martens and Wes Skoglund

Just to set the stage for the Supreme Court’s Heller decision, which should be coming out in the next couple of weeks.

Check this out:

Wow. Lookit all those guns – most of them fully-automatic weapons. And that ain’t the half of ’em.

Here’s the other half:

Not just fully-automatic weapons by the dozen! Not just big ones – two M2HB .50 caliber machine guns, another with the WWII aerial barrel, Russian and German water-cooled Maxims, and a Pearl-Harbor-vintage Browning water-cooled M1 .50, an even dozen Tommy guns, and a few AK-series that seem downright prosaic in comparison – but a flamethrower.

Why, with all those machine guns, this guy must have killed hundreds of people out in the street!

Well, no. It’s the gun collection of the late Charlton Heston, who never killed a guy that didn’t come back to life for the second take.

I’m wondering if the estate will lend it to the MOB for “MOB Day At the Range”, coming soon to a firing range near you?

  1. I’ve been to a few guns shows, at the Fair Grounds and other places, and there are guns literally ALL OVER THE PLACE! Just sitting there on tables, side-by-side as far as the eye can see, no doubt just waiting to jump up and kill somebody. Not only that, but these places are crawling with GUN NUTS! You know, people who like to shoot first, vote later. Gawd, the carnage at these events has got to be incredible – if only the media wasn’t in the bag of the gun lobby I’m sure we’d be hearing about the slaughter all the time.

    Oh, and MOB Day at the Range? I’m there, but it would be nice if we could get a summer MOB gathering at Keegan’s, too.

  2. While I’m not an official MOB member — although I do think I qualify as a hanger-on — I hope I’ll be invited to participate in the day at the range. Wouldn’t want to miss that.

    Hell, if it’s at Burnsville, I think I can persuade Greg to bring out his bolt-action .50s and belt-feds.

  3. Well, I hear’d that Heston, shot a man in Reno just to watch him die…
    oh, wait! Wrong guy

  4. Mitch and Joel-
    If you remember, I brought up the subject of a “MOB Shootout” at Sturbs two years ago.
    John at Bill’s has a great range and neat firearms to rent to shoot.
    Oakdale let us have a Candidate Shoot Out four years ago. We might even have a picnic with “The MOB Shoot Out” at Oakdale. Maybe combine it with another Candidate Shoot.

  5. Sign me up for Oakdale! I “inherited” a couple of handguns I’d like to exercise.
