It's funny how quiet the gun-nutz get every time there's another school shooting.

What should be said? People get shot in Chicago with illegal guns and murdered everyday with things other than firearms. I think you're trying to politicize a problem for something other than what it really is.

That is, a mental health and drug problem. Even that whack-job in Nevada who murdered the 2 cops was turned away from Bundy-ranch supporters. Dude was a tweaker.

And he was eventually stopped by a conceal-carry private citizen. Funny that your types never mention that, huh?

Attention all gun advocates!!

A conventional firearm will work in space. Gunpowder contains its own oxidizer, so it would ignite and the gases would function as they do here on earth. It's the same as a solid-fuel rocket which we know works in space.

In terms of ambient temperature, space is essentially a vacuum, which is a poor conductor, so radiant heat is the cooling process and it's fairly slow (one of the problems faced by astronauts is the need to get rid of body heat). If an astronaut were to bring a firearm from the shuttle or other environment where the weapon was at a normal operating temperature, or if the astronaut was in sunlight, the firearm would work just as well as it would on earth, maybe even better. You would have to be far out in space, away from the Sun and allow the weapon to cool over a period of time before it might fail to operate because of freezing.

The former Soviet Union actually equipped the Salyut 3 space station with an Nudelman-Rikhter aircraft automatic cannon. According to cosmonauts, the gun worked quite well.

So if you luv yer guns, cuz I know you do, go play cowboy in earth orbit. And leave all the oxygen here for us peaceniks.

Do we really need to do this with the abortion crowd putting their "choices" above the lives of children? Really?

You f*#king people simply use children as political tools. You don't really give a f*#k about other people's children.

Innocent unborn babies are simply tools to you and your ilk. Children are only worthy of concern when they're an excuse to seize weapons from honest, innocent citizens.

You're pathetic, and you willingly ignore the real problem to advance your political agenda.

Bluerong, so worried about the unborn. You can use your four five on 'em later when they become less desirable.

Interesting how "our types" seem to bother looking for facts about what actually happened. Stop reading Patdollard.com, bluering. Christ.

If I'm a registered conceal carry, and going about my life drinking coffee and having a slice cherry pie at the local diner with my family

and a red neck comes into the diner with a open carry assault weapon over his shoulder (legal in some states)

As far as I'm concerned he is a threat to my safety, he could be a terrorist, or about to rob the place.

I'm terrified for the safety of my family and the others at the diner.....
this guy is about ready to shoot the place up....

So what should I do: Of course I have to SHOOT Him!!
before he shoots me and my family

and when the cops ask why, I say "I was standing my ground"..
I had to protect my family

and some will say, thank you for your service in killing that possible "terrorist"
since you can never be to sure when it come to threats from others with an open carry weapon.

What will a court decide?

Probably happen one of these days, then you won't have to ask.

Pretty recently in Reno one dude decided to surprise his friend who was coming to pick him up for a ride. I forget what the outcome was, but the shot man died and I think his friend got charged.

You could come up with plenty of scenarios that are iffy, if you tried. That's pretty easy.

I guess in your scenario I'd be tempted to keep my hand on my gun, concealed, unless the dude starts pointing his rifle around, you know... if I was packing. But hey, we had that happen at IHOP, only the dude came in blazing and nobody shot back.

I think it's unquestionable that the guy stopped further people being shot. Him having a gun distracted the shooters.

Unquestionable? Like... you were there, or you've seen video? That's nothing but conjecture and speculation on your part.

Dude, they offed themselves. That's an epic fail, and more murderous SOB's should try it, IMHO.

They were Suicide Right Wing Domestic Terrorists

Now that we have American suicide terrorists here inside America, secret cells scattered around the country conspiring to take down the cops and the Gov.

Maybe, but the Bundy-Ranch security team told them to piss-off. They were denied access because they were 'creepy'.
