This "There coming to take your guns" argument is just nothing more than paranoid rightwing fear mongering BS.

You know that street fight I broke up a little over a month ago would have turned out very differently if guns had been involved. For one thing instead of simply subduing the punk ass I would likely have seriously injured or killed him with my bare hands for pulling a gun on me. If you are going to pull a gun on me you better be damned ready to use it before I get my hands on you. As it was, without guns involved there was no harm and no foul. I have been threatened with guns before.
It did not turn out like the perp thought it would.


Curious, why do they want teachers to carry guns when sailors aboard submarines can't?
And why can't I go to my local Home Depot or Wall Mart and buy dynamite?

Because none of us would survive the dynamite being handled by their empolyees.

Oh, and the right to buy dynamite isn't in the Constitution.
Good luck with that being changed.

There are guns on submarines. They are kept well secure. Much like the way citizens should store their guns, but generally don't.

No brainer.

Actually, back in the '80s I would buy dynamite from the hardware store 3 miles from here.



Anti-gun douchenozzle Chuck Schumer just gave a press conference to denounce the loosening of the knife restrictions by the TSA.
The knife he held up as a prop had a locking blade and is actually NOT permitted under the new rules.

What an idiot!

Hahaha good one Ron.

Dynamite was used in the worst school massacre in US history. Shortly after that horrific event laws were passed to strictly control access to dynamite.
I have to admit it is damn fun to blow sh#t up with it though.


My point is that on Nuke Subs the guns are securely locked away and have to be "issued"
They must have a reason.

They arent required in a sealed tube. And IF a Sailor gets the willies ( some do thier first time below) they wont go to shootin up the tube. An endless ricochet sort of thang i would imagine.

Yet when they surface, they manned the guns..

Friken Lol. Ron we don't always agree, but when we do I enjoy your wry wit.

Schools in subs would substantially reduce ditching classes.

Guns on a sub can be used for whatever situations that require it, both external and internal.

And NO SHERRIFS, no local LEOs, no local Natl guard and no military types will have a thing to do with gun confiscation in the USA.

Well then, why do gun nuts keep going off about their guns being confiscated?

Because,, those same local LEOs are being intimidated and threatened by the FEDS if they dont go along with bans..

I thought you were talking about CONFISCATION, not bans, because that is the word you used.

What CONFISCATIONS are you talking about Ron? Be specific.

What BANS are you talking about?

Because the LEO's I know would be happy to limit the firepower the average crazy has access to at Walmart.

They want to ban high cap. mags in Colo, and 21 counties have said no to those ban proposals and have recieved intimidation from the Senate levels. They are calling for the COLO AG to investigate the matter.

Those aren't CONFISCATIONS.

And NO SHERRIFS, no local LEOs, no local Natl guard and no military types will have a thing to do with gun confiscation in the USA.


"An overwhelming majority of Coloradans support limiting these high-capacity ammunition magazines and it's our job in the legislature to implement the will of the people," said House assistant Majority Leader Dan Pabon, D-Denver.
