Good story about a lady buying a gun

Postby AndyC » Tue Feb 03, 2015 11:27 pm

I stand alone at the crowded Cabela’s gun counter. I’ve already spent hours researching what I want for my first handgun before I arrived here and have mostly decided which gun is the gun, yet the selection remains overwhelming. My boyfriend, having succumbed to the many manly wonders of such a place as Cabela’s, has already ditched me for fishing rods and bait tackle. Good to know, I’m just below fish.

Good article. I'm always amazed their are groups (and States) that wish to disarm Society in the United States. 2nd Amendment guarantees aside, I wonder if the actions of Daesh makes any of these entities stop and ponder the ability of Humans to perform heinously evil acts. Society in the United States has already started collapsing. We have no checks and balances anymore. Humans pouring accelerant on their own newborn babies and burning them on the side of the road in New Jersey. Humans kidnapping, raping and murdering woman in most States. Humans cutting peoples heads off in Oklahoma. Humans killing all their children in Texas. Society holds a meeting to further community relations in Missouri and a brawl breaks out. Civility is one incident away from disappearing completely from ones safety zone, or perhaps regionally if the right incident comes along.

This country needs a reckoning. The slow methodical continuing collapse of our Society is getting painful to watch but it does have it's advantages. One can continue bulk ammo purchases for those "go to" calibers.

I think a 60 day power outage from coast to coast would get things settled nicely in these United States...

Excellent article, now bookmarked for further reference.

My bride has progressed well beyond that point now. The other day she wanted to know why I still "forced" her to load her own magazines, after all, by acing the CHL shooting test every time she obviously knows which end of the gun to point at what, and besides, it hurts her thumbs. This with several models of magazine loading assist tools sitting next to the gun safe.

Yep, that's an excellent article. Something my wife will be reading shortly, I suspect. :tiphat:

I really do sympathize with everything you said, but a coast to coast power outage is very very unlikely to happen. East coast or west coast by themselves is much more likely (and in fact NE, and NW have both happened in the past, but not for 60 days). And most of Texas is in the ERCOT region so even if the rest of the country did go down, it wouldn't affect us here because we're basically not connected to the rest of the country. In fact, the NSA chose San Antonio for a data center for that very reason....the rest of the country could be dark and we'd still be up and running.

Even so, it would take a widespread and significant attack on the most vulnerable system nodes, and power would still be restored for most of the country in a matter of hours or days, not weeks (though some areas could remain blacked out for longer and other areas could experience rolling blackouts). All in all it would come down to system limitations due to the loss of some system equipment, which in essence is effectively a shortage of supply, not an absence of supply or delivery. For perspective, Pakistan has a total system demand of about 15 GW (less than 1/4 of the demand in ERCOT alone) and only about 7 GW of generation, so power is rationed, but most everything still runs a little each day.

So, unless the country gets seriously nuked a long-term coast to coast outage isn't going to happen (and if that happens, a power outage will be near the bottom of our problem list).
