I was sent that in an email from my brother, VET of 30 plus yrs USAF.

They too had a meeting where the brainless b***h was discussed.


I wonder if she would include her democratic buddies who are Vets?


Or perhaps she thinks only republicans join the military?







Soooo, onto the GUN OF THE WEEK!:



the Ruger Redhawk, 44 magnum,, 4 inch barrel, Hogue grips, and stainless steel finish.


Able to handle any and all plus P loads, or heavy grained charges unlike the Smith & Wesson counterparts.

Ron, you made the assertion. It's on you to prove she said "all veterans are mentally ill." I don't see that anywhere. I'm no fan of Diane Feinstein, but I do believe we should try to base our judgements on truth as much as we possible can.

The M&P Smith and Wesson BG380 is a fine weapon with nearly the punch of a 9mm in a compact size.

Credit: pud

Under 1 lb fully loaded, it has substantial recoil but fits nicely enough into your palm to make it reasonable.

I didn't like the long stroke trigger pull so I installed a Galloway Precision http://gallowayprecision.com/smith-and-wesson/bodyguard-380/ trigger kit and am pleased with the %30 reduction in trigger pull.
I got the laser edition and was surprised at how accurate it is right out of the box.

...to acquire all the million/s of illegal guns in America?

Here's the problem. Acquiring the illegal guns is virtually impossible. The only way to get them is one at a time when they are used in the commission of a crime (if the criminal is apprehended with a gun.) Of course he's probably got five more waiting at home for when he gets out. So logically the way to stop gun crime is to lock up anyone who uses a gun in a crime and throw away the key.

However acquiring the legal guns is easy. Law abiding gun owners have their guns registered, stored under lock and key, transport to and from ranges etc. in a legal manner and don't commit crimes with them.

Taking the guns away from the folks who don't commit crimes with them while knowing full well that the criminals will be well armed is about as smart as invading a large Middle Eastern Nation to punish them for something they had nothing to do with.

Agreed. That's why we just stop selling most forms of weaponry and wait for the present ones to become inoperable.

You can go out and buy an operable Civil War gun that was made with vastly
inferior metal to today's guns and has not been properly maintained lo these
many years. Any modern gun which is even moderately well maintained will
last much longer. The human race will be gone before today's guns 'rust away'.
And don't even think you're gonna cut off the supply of ammo. By the time
the highly unlikely happens and ammo is banned in this country the stockpiles
will certainly last until the ultimate pandemic occurs. Wouldn't it be more
cost effective to get some proper mental health care going in this country
and put anybody who commits a felony with a gun away for life?

you see Gary there is nohting you can do to pry those weapons out of the hands of god fearing Merkins. Nothing.

Nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing. And by the time you do that? NOTHING!

Nyet!

Nada.

So get in line at Cabelas and join American Manhood. Get armed, get right with god. An American god. One that kills.

Not at all impossible. Multiple studies show that 30-50% of "crime guns" were diverted from legitimate trade less than five years prior to recovery. Start by cutting off the supply and within five years there would be significant improvement. Universal background checks, tighter restrictions on dealers, better record keeping and tougher penalties for non-compliance by private individuals or dealers. Even a 5% reduction in availability of "crime guns" is thousands less shootings each year. Less shootings means less legitimate demand, which means less law-abiding citizens shooting their spouses and kids or going postal.

The only difficult part is that such legislation would reduce wholesale gun sales, and therefore is vehemently opposed by the Gun Industry.

And very slow to repeat.

That's cool. When some pissed off goth teenager walks into the school cafeteria and gets off a shot, how long to reload? Can he reload before all the jocks start pummeling him?

Any modern gun which is even moderately well maintained will
last much longer. The human race will be gone before today's guns 'rust away'.

Good points. Like I said, it's a long term solution, gotta start somewhere? What's the alternative?

Wouldn't it be more
cost effective to get some proper mental health care going in this country
and put anybody who commits a felony with a gun away for life?

Proper mental health care would be great. Unfortunately, our spending priority currently is spending billions to blow up goatherds in the middle-east. Life terms for armed robbery would constitutionally cruel and unusual punishment.

The way things are going that'll change if the NRA doesn't get on board with some reforms. But, some men you just can't reach. From one extreme to another...

Hey, Ron, did you come up with a citation for that Feinstein quote yet? Or is what you wish she said more important than what she did say?

She never said that. She never came close to saying anything of the sort.

You just really don't like facts, do you?

Did your dads and moms bicker a lot? Or was mom more the obsequious sort?

Just wondering, now that you're bringing a woman into a discussion without women.
