    Things have been crazy here as I am typing this from my bed. I visited the doctor yesterday and he prescribed bed rest for two days as I was suffering from exhaustion. He told me that I could only work two days (6 hour days) per week and cut my range safety officer duties back to two Sundays per month either that or end up with a stroke or heart attack. This past Thursday I finished up converting 10 ARs to NJ compliant. The manufacturers appear to only be producing ARs that have all of the "evils" on them and avoid the "ban" States. We have been paying retail prices to get stock in the shop. Only two Glock 19s which sold within a hour of being placed in the show case. Plenty of S&Ws, Girshans, and Taurus 9mm all with high cap magazines. We have been ordering 10 round mags and switching them out. Ammunition is still a problem this week we only received 3 cases of 9mm Luger (9x19mm). We are keeping a case to have ammo to sale with the guns. No new 12 gauge 00 Buck and .38 Special, .45ACP 230 grain Ball and .22LR are becoming distant memories. 5.56mm/.223 Remington is available but sales are limited to one box per customer. The hoarding is unbelievable. I just got an email this morning that I have an additional 8 5.56mm and 2 .308 Winchester AR platforms to make NJ Compliant. We are expecting a big shipment of 50 Troy A4 Other Rifles in next several days. Have to go stay safe.

    Should be a gun show at Bisley this weekend, but I expect it's been cancelled like most (though I did go to one at Sandown Park a couple of weeks back). Rifle competition shoot on Sunday, out in the open air it should be fairly unchanged, but it's just turn up, shoot, go away again, the social aspect is cancelled. Would have stayed in the clubhouse overnight in normal times but I will just go for the day now.

    Had an enjoyable day hunting yesterday. Only one squirrel but the weather was beautiful. Ran into a local who asked where I was from and when I told him, did he care about Covid, no. All he wanted to know was what direction my area was going to go in the election.

    To put this in context, I live in one of the early lockdown counties in the state and I was in a county that has some cases but nearly all are in the State prison complex which is there.

    This area is my home although I haven't lived there for about 35 years now. Been here more than there now for quite a while.

    Stopped at a restaurant and a guy seemed to be bragging about having Covid and I'm like Dude, you have 600 cases up here, I really doubt you are one of them considering he wasn't an inmate.

    - How come? was my next question.
    - Well, we've been told so. But that's not all: I can't go anywhere but to school, answered my son.
    And, since I take the bus and the train to go to school, I can still take bus and train.
    - Can't you just follow the lessons remotely?
    - No. To activate the remote classrooms, there needs to be a "class council" that decides so, and that happens only if someone is Covid-positive and has to undergo the full quarantine. Any other reasons are not considered. And the remote lessons are private for those who are home.
    - But wouldn't it be more logical to activate a camera and allow the kids to just follow the normal lessons from home? That would almost be like being there!
    - Maybe, but those are the rules...

    Gentlemen, the situation is tragic, but not serious...
    When were these "class councils" created?

    Well, that's better than the school board in San Deigo saying the way we were all taught to turn our class and homework in is racist.... You gotta really love California, leading the way!

    Another big change, teachers can no longer consider non-material factors when grading. Things like turning work in on time and classroom behavior will now instead count towards a student's citizenship grade, not their academic grade."

    Good grief ... I thought it was bad here in the UKicon!

    Here in the UK, successive governments have dumbed down lessons, subverting teaching from teaching subjects in depth, to teaching kids purely facts, to pass exams and shoving most of them through university for pointless degrees...

    Unbelievably, some companies now make young degree applicants sit exams to try and sort out who the bright kids are, it makes the whole degree process rather pointless and devalued.

    I hope they aren't surprised when colleges no longer accept their students and they can no longer get jobs when they "graduate".

    They have been doing so for a long time.

    And more importantly, so has their leadership.
