  • @nailah783 you'd be amazed at how many people you see in restaurants, concerts, etc. are carrying firearms.  The problem in Paris and France in general is that people are for the most part not allowed to carry.    This notion that you can predict wh…

  • The firearm I keep in plain sight is inoperable...but I am the only one who knows it is inoperable.  It's a learning tool, not an invitation to an accident.
  • YES!  It used to be.  I was even on a shooting club when I was in school. Hiding guns from kids and keeping them ignorant of the basics of firearms safety only ensures that accidents will happen.  I have to wonder about the motives of people who wan…
  • @Dasjdas2 You might want to rethink that...since millions of us share Edward Abbey's feelings on the matter: “When guns are outlawed, only the Government will have guns. The Government - and a few outlaws. If that happens, you can count me among the…
  • @Dasjdas2  Free societies consider their citizens to be sane, responsible and law-abiding until their actions prove otherwise.  This licensing crap is the mark of a totalitarian society where citizens are considered to be potential criminals, terror…
  • There is nothing "to be done" about it. Until the NFA of 1934, Americans had historically always been better armed than their police and military.  The "escalation" is a direct result of the government trying ensure they are better armed than crimin…
  • @nailah783  you don't just pick and choose the rules you like, you teach all 4 of them...it's like layered security...even if one is breached or forgotten, the others might still prevent you from having a bad day. 
  • People have a right to their opinions...as long as their opinions don't turn into actions that infringe upon the rights of others, I see no need to preach to them.  
  • @Dasjdas2  if you raise your kids properly, they won't be flashing it around to friends.  As I said, i have a firearm within plain sight and easy access in my home...neither my kids nor my grandkids have ever touched it without my supervision, let a…
  • I figured, but just wanted to make it clear to the hoplophobes. 
  • The right to defend one's self, family, property and community by any means is not a "privilege" it is an inherent human right that predates governments and constitutions.  That right is further guaranteed under the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution…
  • How many people were killed by automobiles, knives and other items in the same time frame?   In some cases, more...yet I don't hear a peep about getting rid of any of those items.   FYI @jbbarn, the second amendment does not "grant" any rights...it …
  • If you don't want to own or use a firearm, nobody is forcing you and I respect your wishes.  I would hope that you would respect my right to own and use firearms...especially since my training in their use may save your life or that of one of your l…
  • What threat is ANY firearm in the hands of a responsible, law-abiding citizen? Why is it that you trust cops and military with firearms, but once the uniform comes off all of the sudden those same people cannot be trusted? Free people are considered…
  • Shoulda, woulda, couldas and a buck might get you a cup of coffee.  While I am pretty sure that a number of armed citizens who TRAINED REGULARLY might have lessened the carnage, it's still all speculation.

  • If people would educate their kids about firearms, rather than hiding them away and pretending they don't exist, we'd have much fewer kids having accidents with firearms.  My dad was a cop and started teaching me when I was like 4 years old...I knew…
  • You won't be listening to much on the scanner for very long...most public safety communications systems are going to encryption, if they haven't already.  Indeed, most tactical channels are already encrypted, which is probably why you have to specul…
  • Why would I have emotions either way concerning an inanimate object?  Change the subject to cars or chain saws or hammers or bicycles and you see how silly such a notion is.  
  • It only takes one round to kill.  It takes a LOT of rounds for people, law enforcement and the military to become and maintain their proficiency with firearms.   I can load and reload my own ammunition...in fact I cast my own bullets and shot from s…
  • Gun Control: ensuring accuracy and an efficient rate of fire. 
  • I would much rather die than live in a country where the people are so fearful of their fellow citizens that they assume they are all potential criminals and terrorists until a background check proves otherwise.   FYI, background checks didn't stop …
  • It's sad to see people so afraid and mistrusting of their fellow citizens.  It's why America is becoming just another third-world banana republic rather than the shining city on a hill and beacon of freedom we used to be.   Indeed, I guess we should…
  • Look, it has always been legal for private parties to buy/sell/trade their firearms.  It wasn't until the GCA of 1968 that we required people "in the business" of selling firearms to get a federal license to do so, and it wasn't until 86 and beyond …
  • There is no correlation between firearm ownership and gun violence...and that works both ways.  The anti-gun position that says less guns equals less violence does not hold up to scientific scrutiny, nor does the pro-gun position that more guns resu…
  • Was our government just trying to keep the Bonus Marchers from hurting themselves when had troops fire on them and burn down their encampment?   thinking it can't happen here is what allows a republic to devolve into totalitarianism.  
  • thinking that it can't happen here is pretty naive.  Constitutions and words don't stop the acts of tyrants and wannabe tyrants...only vigilant, armed citizens have even a hope of doing so.  
  • So you are blaming the inanimate object for the stupidity of the owner?  Did the gun somehow automagically take over his mind and turn him into an idiot?  If he had based his friend's head in with a hammer then slit his own wrists, would you be call…
  • "Do as I say, not as I do", said the snake to the citizen. 
  • Anyone who is for background checks to purchase firearms must also logically be for background checks to post on internet forums, to write letters to the editor, to visit your local/county/state/federal representatives or offices, to buy a car, to f…
  • Jeff Cooper's 4 rules about cover it.   RULE 1ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED The only exception to this occurs when one has a weapon in his hands and he has personally unloaded it for checking. As soon as he puts it down, Rule 1 applies again. RULE 2NEV…
