    Well today lawyers are blocking the stale sale of Weinstein's company, because they fear that the people remaining in the company were trying to weasel out of paying millions in retribution to Weinstein's victims.

    The thing is, everybody in the management knew what a scumbag Weinstein was, but in a business heavily populated by predatory scumbags, nobody did anything about it, because he was so rich and had so many people riding on his coattails.

    While this isn't specifically "Hollywood", it is a "sports star".

    Apparently Rueben Foster (linebacker for the SF 49'ers--yes I had to look that up) was arrested this week for domestic abuse and having an illegal SBR assault rifle.

    Now, given the source of the article, and I understand that he is innocent until proven guilty and they may be referring to a dull plastic condiment butter knife that someone brought home from KFC and a slingshot. Let's face it, people in California are rather ignorant of guns.

    But I did read where this guy was taking the knee.

    Perhaps he'll be doing that a lot in prison too?

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out because he's a famous rich black guy.

    Also John you are invited to come shoot at our club anytime buddy. Not all Californians are ignorant about guns. I read there are eight million gun owners. Officially. The way people have been cranking out ghost guns in this state I wouldn't be surprised if the number is far higher.

    But because of the gun laws here, (and the fact that this is still a bit of the Wild West in California you know)
    and the number of illegal aliens in the state that they don't talk about, there are a lot more guns in California than anyone will admit, because there are millions more people in this state than the state will admit to having.

    I should've said, a lot of people in California, especially involved in the media, are ignorant about guns.

    My apologies to issuing a blanket statement. I need to watch for doing that.

    Well it's true that the most gun knowledgeable person ever to hold recent major office in the state of California was probably Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Anyhow, the malfeasance of our politicians have made this an incredibly crazy place. According to the law here, if I start a movie company I can have any kind of crazy guns I want.

    You have to keep records and they have to be locked up securely when you're not "shooting."

    There are probably lots of other regulations but I believe that this allows you to own things (for this purpose) that the fed's will frown on.

    "Going to a shoot" could take on a whole different meaning for me.

    John, I think I am finally starting to appreciate the charm of those russian-built weapons.

    Also I have never seen the movie Red Dawn, so I will have to correct that.
