  1. WSJ Article/States Move to Keep Guns From Fugitives

    That was mostly about MA residents that had unpaid motor vehicle tickets and moved out of state, with MA classifying them as FFJs. Unscrewing what MA made appears to have let a few *real* threats off the hook.
  2. Home Defense Gear - Some Questions

    So, I sent for a 5.11 Two-Banger to hold a few mags, trauma kit (TQ, pressure dressing, hemostatic gauze, chest seal) and flashlight. If it doesn't work for me Amazon will take it back. My pistol/carbine can sit in the quick-access box and bag in a drawer underneath. Again, this is the...
  3. SCOTUS Grants Cert to a Gun Case! (NY State)

    When courts don’t do what we want we call it Judicial Activism. When NYC continues to ignore Heller, McDonald and harasses gun owners at each and every opportunity, until sued into compliance, we call it Legislative Recidivism. In this case Voluntary Cessation does not moot the underlying offense.
  4. Home Defense Gear - Some Questions

    During our home renovation, I was able to slip in covert secure storage in the garage, 1st floor office and 1st floor living room for firearms and accessories. The 2nd floor bedroom is a quick-access arsenal so no worries there ;-) Outside the bedroom, we (my wife, kids-out-of-the-house) spend...
  5. ANOTHER WALMART SHOOTING

    FBI classed mass killings as 4+ shot in same locale, by the same person(s) and on same date, excluding gang and intra-family/domestic violence, primarily to address profiling and investigation. The minimum to be a mass killing/shooting in any “database” (Mother Jones, Gun Violence Archive, Mass...
  6. Massive Bust In Lawrence Nets 78 Guns And 18 Gang Members

    “Out of the 79 guns, which came in from out of state, 17 were stolen and at least two were used in shootings.” Seriously? What ever happened to “Buy Local”? Perhaps they meant manufactured outside MA....
  7. ANOTHER WALMART SHOOTING

    Like “Just 137 days before the 7th anniversary of the 11th largest Sinclair Oil Station shooting in Texas between 1967 and 1984.”
  8. 60 Minutes - Colorado cops says they wont enforce Red Flags orders

    I see your point and struggle to make a distinction that’s just not based on my worldview, ideology and bias. One distinction I’d make is the liberal/progressive perspective is all about *taking* - taking guns away from people and taking money away from people to give to others. The guns they...
  9. The President Trump Megathread

    I see your point. I was reading (perhaps hopefully over-reading) Barr’s position to suggest that, if firearms are seized by Red Flag ERPOs, under due process, any individual so-served with an ERPO would be provided some manner of mental health treatment. People with guns *do* experience events...
  10. Shooting Reported at High School in Santa Clarita, California

    “The 16-year-old who opened fire Thursday at a high school in Santa Clarita, Calif., killing two people and wounding three others, has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, authorities said. Nathaniel Tennosuke Berhow shot himself on his 16th birthday after pulling a gun from his...
  11. The President Trump Megathread

    “Mr. Barr wants U.S. attorneys to find ways to thwart potential attacks, including by recommending court-ordered treatment for people whose mental-health histories bar them from owning weapons.” That’s either seizing guns and putting people away in mental institutions OR providing treatment to...
  12. Shooting Reported at High School in Santa Clarita, California

    And we should keep in mind that we are not immune from the media’s constant drumming that US leads the way in Mass Killings - a myth debunked without any uptake by the media and certainly not by gun control proponents The Myth That the US Leads the World in Mass Shootings | Jon Miltimore It’s...
  13. Shooting Reported at High School in Santa Clarita, California

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/the-santa-clarita-shooting-doesnt-support-liberals-gun-control-agenda “Their editorial noted, “This is the 39th mass shooting (that is, a shooting in which at least four people were wounded) in California this year, bringing the statewide total to 53...
  14. Shooting Reported at High School in Santa Clarita, California

    And post more Gun-Free Zone signs in larger, bolder fonts! But 16 seconds from first to last bang, the last being to his own head. The cops were just minutes away but anything less than armed staff on site is useless.
  15. New Hampshire Eye Doctor Reccomendations?

    Get thee a Red Dot optic on your pistol. With 100,000hr battery life on some, what’s to worry? Tack on tritium suppressor sights and your good for a decade.
  16. "General Discussion" thread becoming a catch-all ?

    But what’s the best car wax? That’s firearms-related - kind of... Yeah - Off-Topic is a nice place for stuff without a Bang or 2ndA.
  17. Winter Hiking

    When you are wearing micro spikes, and should have been wearing crampons, you’ll know it...for a brief flash until you smack into a hard tree or rock as you’re flying downhill. Fortunately, my crotch broke my fall so no bones broken. And when you certainly don’t need crampons keep your micro...
  18. Smith & Wesson parent company splits in two; firearm maker retains name

    S&W is a business - they made that point clear long ago. They will sell to jack-booted thugs if that’s where the money goes.
  19. As Gun Owners Look to Nullify Gun Laws, "Sanctuary" Isn't Just for Immigrants

    https://wtkr.com/2019/11/11/local-democrat-disappointed-and-disgusted-after-republicans-cancel-important-gun-control-meeting/ "Right now, there is a ban on localities putting into place policies that would impact guns or ammunition. Let the localities best figure out how to keep their people...
  20. Democrats 2020 Megathread - There can be only one!

    https://www.newsweek.com/michael-bloomberg-george-conway-buy-fox-news-1470792 Pundits advocating Bloomberg by FOX News. That's kind of like the Banana Republic coup d'etat leader taking over the national broadcast station to control freedom of speech.
