Re: IL: PIGS FLY IN CHICAGO!

Now all he has to do is to change the IL laws to allow people to actually concealed carry places where they normally go.

Re: Topographical maps

One of the early lessons I learned in the Boy Scouts was how to read and use topo maps. I can remember hiking the Sandia Mountains East of Albuquerque and using them. When I moved to Pennsylvania, we did cross-country hikes over nearby hills using topo maps. But I haven't had a chance to do anything...

Re: Michigan trip

Thank you all for your insight. chasfm11, I only wish this was a road trip, have to fly and that's going to be another can of worms. I've not done it personally but flying with firearms isn't supposed to be difficult if you follow the rules. I'd much rather take my chances with that than driving th...

Re: Michigan trip

We've driven in our RV from Dallas to Bay City Michigan. When we take trips like that, I refer to www.handgunlaw.us. I agree with the comment that the rules are different in each State and it is a good idea to understand some of those differences. Do you notify an officer during a traffic stop that ...

Re: Noncompliance Kneecaps New Zealand's Gun Control Scheme

The banners still win. The gun owners go underground, skills deteriorate. Organized training becomes non-existant. The owners still live in fear of being found out. Banning guns is not really about guns, it's about instilling fear and neutering the public Socialism is all about controlling the peas...

Re: Eric Swalwell Quits Running for President

So it seems that telling people you are going to take their guns and, if they resist, use nuclear weapons on them turned out to be a losing platform. Who knew? I am concerned with the number of people for whom this approach is appealing. They at least verbalize support for eliminating anyone who op...

Re: Gallup Poll: Barely 1% of Americans See Guns as Most Important Problem Facing America

Swalwell is going to be Sooooo disappointed. He is making it his signature issue to become President. 1% of the voters is not going to help him with that.

Re: Anti drone equipment

Never mind the drone aspect, the machining was fascinating, at least to me. He must have a couple hundred dollars in fittings alone. I'm always amazed at the ideas that guys with those kinds of skills can come up with.

Re: California to Texas migration

Instapundit (pjmedia.com/instapundit/) argues that someone such as the Koch Brothers should fund a welcome wagon of sorts for newcomers to Texas from blue states. The idea is to deliver to them literature and engage them in discussions to help them see that the differences in policies between red a...

Oregon Politics Heating Up

I've been trying to follow a series of standoffs between the Democratic Governor and some members of the minority Republicans in the Legislature. If I understood it correctly, the Republicans went AWOL and the Gov. was forced to withdraw some gun control measures to get them back in a previous episo...
