You can always dig a cave..;-) Kinda like the stuff that used to be up six mile canyon. Mostly under ground.

A lot of that area below was Rocketdyne property back in the day- and is where the Lunar module ascent and descent engines were put together and test fired. It was ALL off limits -fenced and patrolled. The chukar inside the huge area were tame, and my dad was a big wig, so i got to hunt that VIRGIN.. you can imagine!

Had a chopper (tourons or Search and Rescue?) watching us at Eagle Lake a couple years ago.

I waved.
They did nothing.

I gave them the "wtf" shrug, hands up high.
The did nothing.

I gave them the "shoo-scoot-get-on-outta-here" signal.
The did nothing.

I flipped them off, both hands, big and high so they could see.
They left.

My next attempt would have been to pick them out of the air with a rock or a #3 cameltwat.

The left-wing stance is just as predictable, much the same as the rest of poolitics.

"propaganda, fear, paranoia, money, but mostly willful ignorance that supports their ideology"
Maybe a little less money, eh?
Seems few people are comfortable with compromise.

Actually, I kind of applaud the effort to fix the healthcare system. Too bad it's a clusterfluk, and the insurance companies have taken advantage of it saying it's going to raise our rates. Hell, you could roll it back and get rid of it and they'd raise rates again. But that's just big business.

So yeah, I see the left cares about society. So does the right. Otherwise, how could they make money without a society in which to sell?

Dude, wtf... fear? You think "we" are actually more AFRAID of gunmen shooting kids at school than the right is? No, "we" don't want it to happen just as much as you don't. But "we" still send our kids to schools. "We" still take them to movies. "We" still go to malls. And while "we" maybe cautious, "we" still go out... sometimes even after DARK... without mommy... without Teddy... and without packing heat!

Do you think "we" are AFRAID of AR15's or magazines that hold more than 10 bullets?

pffft... whatever. Common sense says it is a good idea to regulate ANYTHING capable of slaughtering dozens of people in minutes if it were to fall into the wrong hands or were misused. The more dire the consequences, the more it JUST MAKES SENSE to regulate.

Lots of regulations regarding airplanes even before 911... because consequences were dire... unlikely, but dire.

Same with cars.

But mention any kind of regulation to people who love their guns and are AFRAID of losing them... AFRAID of a federal registry... AFRAID of the government taking over... and all rational discussion flies out the fuking window... because fear is an emotional response... and emotional responses often lead to irrational behavior.

unlike many lefters on this thread.

And unlike many righters everywhere. I know plenty of lefters who served far more than any righters I know. What's your point?

Man,, this is fun. heh heh.

i see lots of fear on both sides. Oft irrational. Right in my own family too. Make no mistake about it, YOU may not be afraid, but many of your brethren are.

YOU may not be afraid, but many of your brethren are.

If they are so afraid, why do so many of them live (and go out) in areas with higher crime rates (big cities)... as opposed to hiding out in small towns or up in da hills... amassing an arsenal?

A psychiatrist who treated James Holmes told campus police a month before the Colorado theater attack that Holmes had homicidal thoughts and was a danger to the public, according to documents released Thursday.

Yet... well, you can google what he was allowed to purchase... EASILY and CONVENIENTLY.

Why NOT have a registry where those in charge of public safety can enter that kind of data and prevent HOMICIDAL maniacs from EASILY and CONVENIENTLY amassing weapons and ammo through legal channels?

He should have been reported and denied purchase. Simple as that. That's the kind of changes I'd advocate for.
