Re: Does suicidal mass murderer care about AW ban?

he is trying for the insanity defense, but....he premeditated for weeks. so i doubt that will fly Providing some liberal lawyer for the ACLU doesn't get him off the hook Perhaps you found him quickly.

Re: "Gun control deserves serious action.... "

57Coastie, with all due respect, you're either misrepresenting yourself in this forum or you're delusional. Never before have I been so insulted. I am neither misrepresenting myself, lying, nor, according to my physician, delusional. I have always done the very best that I can in letting all hands ...

Re: "Gun control deserves serious action.... "

So Jim what do you propose? We find a different way to engage or learn to live with more restrictions on gun ownership? Something else perhaps? Yes. Please tell us what you think a reasonable approach looks like. I have not the foggiest idea, HP. I can only hope that there is one out there which is...

Re: "Gun control deserves serious action.... "

Okay, so if WE, those that own semi-automatic firearms, etc., are expected to GIVE SOMETHING UP, then what exactly is the OTHER SIDE giving up? No rhetoric, please, just concrete items. The answer is obvious, HP. In return for "your side" being reasonable in its demands, the "other side" would give...

So Jim what do you propose? We find a different way to engage or learn to live with more restrictions on gun ownership? Something else perhaps?

You are in trouble again, Chris. I believe that that is indeed generally the case.

Re: "Gun control deserves serious action.... "

I generally dislike making generalizations, but here I go... After 24 years in the Military (both Marines and Army) I have not yet changed my opinion that the majority of Career Officers (Field Grade and above) are very liberal. The General is simply another example of that. They are simply a part ...

Re: First Time Disarmed

Although I think disarming a CHL holder should be a very rare thing, I question need to unload the weapon. Its one thing to have him hold our toys but is it necessary for him to be playing with it? We all understand that many (most?) accidental discharges happen during unnecessary handling of the f...
