Re: And we move further toward Civil War

So what if a State/County decides they want to create these so called "gun sanctuary cities", this is well within the laws of the Constitution. Relations between a state and the federal government are one thing. Relations between a state and its political subdivisions are another. In our ...

Re: Springfield Armory severs relationship with Dicks

Maybe other manufacturers will follow their lead. I think they should, but firearms manufacturers blacklisting gun-controlling customers, especially state governments, are running a risk. The more manufacturers that participate, the more likely it is that some state attorney general will sue, alleg...

Re: Banks, credit-card cos. explore tracking gun purchases

I was never a tin foil hat kind of guy but y'all are starting to scare me or at least validate my distant concerns. Rest easy. They want to control every aspect of our lives for our own good. How could we be concerned about such benevolence? Comrade Stalin, er, I mean, Governor Cuomo has our best i...

Re: Anyone have an issue with this city ordinance?

The ordinance is obviously intended to be enforced only against the "wrong sort." As such, it's highly unlikely to withstand judicial scrutiny. But I'm not volunteering to put myself and my pocketbook in jeopardy to test the ordinance, and I advise caution before anyone else does.

Re: Brit arrested for defending himself

It's bad enough that the cops make the arrest and the authorities prosecute. But it's my understanding the prosecutors get convictions, which means juries composed of other Brits vote to convict. Can you imagine a Texas jury doing that under similar circumstances? It seems true that we get the gover...

Brit arrested for defending himself

A 78-year-old homeowner has been arrested by murder detectives after a suspected burglar he fought with in his own kitchen died of a stab wound. The pensioner was upstairs asleep with his wife when he was woken by the two men breaking into his suburban home in Hither Green, south-east London last n...

Re: Merriam-Webster - "assault rifle" definition change

Assault rifle is NOT a semiautomatic weapon that looks like a fully automatic weapon. Well, or it may be, in which case we're back to the point that the term has no useful meaning. We'll be regulating weapons based on their appearance instead of the danger they present. But this will be selective. ...
