If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Sometimes the targets shoot back!!!

This was submitted by a regular reader from out west.  It's really increadible.  She says,

Turn your sound up..........so you can hear the bullet head back.   This guy is shooting a 50 cal rifle. Watch the dust when he fires. The target is a steel plate, 1000 yards away.  You can hear the ping of the hit and then hear the bullet coming back. It hits the ground just in front of him, then bounces up, hits the earmuffs, knocking them from his head.  The footage is amazing. You can hear the bullet as it tumbles through the air on its course back toward the shooter. He's lucky it hit the dirt first. He is okay and obviously very lucky.
