Knives and Flaming Cats

Saw this: Firefighter attacked by knife-wielding woman; is saved by coat

A Tucson fire captain responding to an apartment fire early Friday morning was attacked by a knife-wielding woman who tried to stab him in the chest, police said.

The firefighter’s turnout, or firefighting coat, served as body armor and kept the knife from penetrating his chest, according to a press release issued by Tucson Fire.

The firefighter wasn’t hurt and was able to get out of the apartment.

But noticed this:

Firefighters were able to see inside and determine the fire was burning on top of a small stove. Officials say the woman had a dead cat on the stove and was burning it.

Burning a dead cat on the stove.

You can’t make this stuff up.

What a great OpEd

Obviously, a site like GunPundit is going to support Magpul’s decision to move out of Colorado after a law banning the sale or transfer of magazines holding more than 15 rounds was signed by the Governor last month. And poking fun at the idiots who passed such a law or those that support it is part and parcel to Murdoc’s role.

Even so, this opinion piece by Rick Tosches in the Denver Post seems, well, sort of deranged:
Tosches: Go ahead, Magpul. Move. Wyoming seems nice.

Is that what passes for an opinion in the Denver Post?

Magpul to Leave Colorado?


Apparently Gov Hickenlooper has announced that he will sign HB 1224 on Wednesday. We were asked for our reaction, and here is what we said:

We have said all along that based on the legal problems and uncertainties in the bill, as well as general principle, we will have no choice but to leave if the Governor signs this into law. We will start our transition out of the state almost immediately, and we will prioritize moving magazine manufacturing operations first. We expect the first PMAGs to be made outside CO within 30 days of the signing
