Grab Bag: Oct 2016

The Libertarian Party ticket just can’t keep their foots out of their mouths, a new report on LEOs abusing access to databases, and a gun group in North Carolina holds a raffle for an AR and a picture of Clinton.

1.) Johnson/Weld. At this point, the Libertarian Ticket is, like the other two parties, their own worst enemy. Whether it’s Johnson blanking on foreign leaders, or Weld saying Clinton is most qualified.

2.) Police databases. A new report by the AP suggests law enforcement across the country are using their access to databases for activities other than investigations. Some for revenge, some out of curiosity, some basically becoming stalkers.

It’s both an interesting read and more than a little unnerving.

3.) Raffle. Grass Roots North Carolina is hosting a raffle involving an AR-15, ammo….and a picture of Hillary Clinton. They don’t explicitly say what to do with the photo, but note that “when we ran a picture of Hillary on the front of our newsletter, we heard it was very popular at the range.”

So far, I haven’t seen much about it being interpreted as anything other than a political stunt. But it is a fairly passive-aggressive hint at what they want you to do with it.

Stay informed. Stay alert. Stay free.
