Re: I want to keep my guns.

It is human nature to be lazy and scared. That is what tyrants have counted on all throughout history. It's not being 'lazy or scared' - it's being strategic. No one here, no group of people here are capable of winning against the govt. During the revolution it only took a few rifles and a few good...

Re: CZ-75 Compact P-01

You aren't lying about the wait. CGW did their magic on my full size 75 BD and it is like a completely different gun. I currently have a RAMI sitting in their shop. Got on the wait list in December and they are hoping to get to it sometime in April. Long wait, but definitely worth it, IMHO. I am in ...

Re: I want to keep my guns.

I've lived 55 years - haven't "needed" a gun yet. Did you ever stop to think that the fact that so many of us have firearms and hold the 2A in such high regard is the very reason we have not degraded into a socialist heck hole yet? Your definition of "need" is undoubtedly quite ...

Re: I want to keep my guns.

Is everyone here a 'cold dead hands' advocate ? Yes Jason, no wife or children ? No other passions or hobbies ? Travel? Anything ? Really - honestly willing to have a shoot out where the certain result is your death? Regardless of how many you'd take with you ? Many of us here swore a solemn oath t...

Re: I want to keep my guns.

Had that bill gotten enough Republicans to get on board, Obama would have signed it and the Florida school shooter would not have been able to kill 17 last week. So in reality, the Democratic bill would have saved those children. He would not have had the chance to kill as many with a bolt action r...

Re: I want to keep my guns.

My church today talked to some of us and reminded us they don't consider carry guns in the building appropriate, but falling far short of banning us. I struggle with that one. For now I choose to respect the request. I am not sure I alway will. Sorry to hear that... it would have been my last day t...

Re: I want to keep my guns.

I also want to see an end to mass shootings, school massacres and suicides. What is the common thread? Declining mental health. I don't think we have a gun problem but a mental health problem. An untended consequence I see is gun owners being unwilling to seek help for mental issues out of fear of ...

Re: Let's Really Protect Our Schools

If you ever want to learn how to launch a MK48 torpedo and what all goes into torpedo fire control and target tracking and analysis, look me up. Not all "combat" is done on the ground. Trust me, I'm not trying to denigrate anyone's service. I am simply saying that for the purposes of this...

Re: Let's Really Protect Our Schools

FYI, although I had 8 years of active duty in the USAF I never once had any training in firearms or ever touched a military weapon. The closest I came to weapon training was watching an AR-15 shot at a watermelon. All firearm use that I had was on my own. The concept that military service and firea...

Re: 30.06 on INSIDE doors

Trey and SoccerDad, I hear what you are saying... but there is more to it than just that. I used the example of a family member in the hospital on purpose. The conundrums of the law are that Hospitals are listed in 46.035 (b)(4) as being statutorily off-limits. Then in 46.035 (i), it states that (b...

Re: FL: Active shooter at high school in South Florida

From what I have heard about most of those mass shooters, they generally stop as soon as they meet armed resistance (or unarmed sometimes). Many times one armed person firing back in enough. They just need to be in the right place to do it. How many armed people you need to insure someone is there ...
