Yet, there is one conspicuous firearm missing from the list. I own one and think it's a fine weapon. Any problem in the real world can be solved with it. Any serious firearms aficionado would know what it is. Others don't need to know since they just get their panties in a bunch.Jump to post
Agreed, it's crystal clear: A well armed militia ... Notice the word "militia", which is a paramilitary organisation aimed at securing a specific area, often under local or regional control. As in, your National Guard. So there you have, clear as ice: To be armed means you have to be a me...Jump to post
The OP bounces all around. One minute he's talking about "competitiveness" being important and the next he's saying that "profitability" isn't . They kind of work together. Then he talks about airlines being smaller, maybe in the last 2 months, but that's it. There are many more ...Jump to post
I joined the Army and became a paratrooper in a heavy weapons platoon. Most civilian guns are boring, especially when you have to pay for the ammo. That being said, since I am law enforcement now, my guns go home with me every day. But they are secured. Self defense starts way left of the boom. You...Jump to post
There's a great YouTube channel that displays guns of all varieties, and is extremely informational. Loads of knowledge and skill. And he routinely also says he avoids meeting fans, going to shows, expos, etc because too many gun owners only show the side of needing it to shoot someone. It leads me...Jump to post

1. What assault weapon ban was repealed? 2. No special rounds required to defeat body armor. Any rifle hunting bullet will defeat common body armor. Sure about that?

A part of the reason for the heavier bombload of the British heavies vs the American ones is the smaller aircrew and lesser defense armament. Of course, this also relegated the British planes to bombing at night when it wasn't as accurate. So they needed more bombs to do the same damage.Jump to post
But 699 lives could have been saved with better background checks and mental health evaluations, which continue to be fought in the US. 1. What better background checks? It is essentially the same as the one that law enforcement uses. 2. The hangup with mental evaluations is HIPAA. That has nothing...Jump to post
Yeah they have, by enabling the repeal of assault weapons bans, by bribing lawmakers. So basically no different to those who funnel cash to terror groups. Who never get near to firing a shot themselves. Even promoting rounds designed to defeat body armour. And enabling those with a history of menta...Jump to post
It appears the age old adage of "good guy with a gun" doesn't always ring true. Who knew two year olds were that good with aim? And how do they know it was an accident?

Since most of the world population is in quarantine and self-isolation, this includes potential criminals.

Maybe this will help...Jump to post
We just go and get our own groceries. We just buy for 2-3 weeks now instead of one week at a time. If we run out of something, oh well, it's not going to kill us if we don't have it before our next scheduled shopping day. We just substitute.Jump to post

In both instances, the embassy only informed citizens of the flights the day before the flights departed.

Pensions are a good yardstick of whether something is a complete jobs farm or it runs as an actual business.
