Lego Goes After Gun Manufacturer’s ‘Block 19’ Pistol

The toy company wanted the world to know how they felt about the 2nd Amendment.

It’s one thing when an aspiring politician or hormone-addled college student starts virtue signaling, as we know that this is all part of an attraction ritual.  The politician wants to be on whatever side of history that most voters want them to be on.  The college student is trying to make sure that their potential mates witness just how just they truly are.

But when companies start virtue signaling, this is a different ballgame altogether.  They are trying to make sure that they are worthy of your wallet, and, more so, they want to make sure that you see them as far more virtuous than their competitors.

It’s inherently icky, is what I’m getting at, and Lego has been at the forefront of this sort of corporate competition for political correctness.

The kids toy giant Lego is demanding Utah’s Culper Precision cease producing handguns that look as if they were made from Lego toys.

BBC reports that Culper Precision does custom work on Austrian-designed Glock 19 pistols. Culper Precision refers to its custom Glock 19 as the “Block 19.”

Culper Precision noted that it came up with the idea of the gun as part of an effort to “highlight the pure enjoyment of the shooting sports.”

But the Danish company Lego demanded Culper Precision cease making the pistols, as they are “covered in what looks like Lego bricks.”

The firearm is brilliantly clever.

This isn’t the first time that Lego has gone after conservative values, either.

The company also sent legal notices to a company that had created and packed a “build the wall” toy-brick set back in 2018.

Gunman Bricked to Death After Opening Fire on Forth Worth Party

You don’t mess with Texas.

Published

You know what they say:  Don’t mess with Texas. This is the sort of placed where the locals have no problem reminding you, and swiftly, that you’re not from around here.  They are fiercely independent Americans, and they enjoy their freedom in their own unique way. Texans always seem to get their way, and they certainly have been known to find a unique solution to their problems. This is as true as ever this week. A gunman who opened fire at a party early Monday in Texas, fatally shooting one person, died after attendees struck him with bricks, authorities said. The incident began around 1 a.m. in the backyard of a Fort Worth home when an attendee became angry and left, the police department said in a statement. The person, identified by a Fort Worth police spokesperson only as a man, returned with a second person and got into an argument with other partygoers. The man opened fire, striking one person and causing a non-life-threatening injury, the statement said. But then… When people at the party began chasing him, he opened fire and they threw landscaping bricks at him, the statement said. Two people were struck by gunfire, one of them fatally, police said. The second person was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The gunman was pronounced dead at the scene, and has yet to be publicly identified.

Swastika Found Engraved at State Department Draws Condemnation

The Secretary of State was LIVID.

There’s nothing funny about the Nazi regime, and everyone knows it, except for a certain breed of adolescent dolt who’s simply looking to appear edgy and dangerous as some hormonal ploy to attract a mate. These are the kids that would draw toothbrush mustaches on the faces in the magazines, or throw up a sig heil behind the teacher’s back for a laugh. But this phase almost always fades as the years climb on, and most of these young idiots looks back at themselves in a perpetual state of cringe. This leaves us to assume that anyone continuing to exude such Hitleresque nonsense into adulthood is doing so very purposefully, and not with the naïveté of their younger years. At the State Department, this reality is causing a bit of concern. A swastika carved into an elevator car has been discovered at the State Department in Washington—in a location within the building’s security perimeter. The elevator is close to the office of the special envoy charged with monitoring and opposing anti-semitism, Axios reports. Secretary of State Antony Blinken emailed all employees Tuesday about the discovery. Blinken was livid. “The hateful graffiti has been removed and this incident will be investigated,” he wrote. Blinken is the stepson of a Holocaust survivor, per the Washington Post, and has emphasized the threat of anti-semitism, which he wrote “isn’t a relic of the past.” Officials have said President Biden will nominate an ambassador-at-large to deal with the problem; the Jerusalem Post called for such a position in an editorial this month. Hate has been on the rise in America in recent years, as white supremacist groups continue to recruit and spread their message online, and then, often violently, in real life.
