  2. Ok, they proved me wrong. I'm hoping for a deep run. Our shooting should help. And Ulis, wow, one of the best pg's ever. I might actually watch him play in the NBA.
  3. The privacy invasions, yes. I equate that to the same thing as The Patriot Act. Using terror/guns to force people to give up on their privacy. I wonder what the next Presidency will use. The numbers that I pointed out are problems, the others are OK to me. All null and void anyway. That was a 2013 article.
  4. Sorry, my post is old news. That has nothing to do with whatever he is currently doing. Someone linked that to me today, I didn't read the date. It's 3 years old ...
  5. Just saying, there are other viewpoints about what happened to these ranchers. I don't understand how people will automatically assume all police officers are out to shoot all black people, yet can't fathom the idea that the federal government might be out for some land grabbing. Forget about the damn Bundy's and their guns. I'm talking about all the things that led up to this point. I'm going to keep an eye on this situation, and revisit it every few years. To see if there is going to be an "I told you so" moment, or "You told me so". I see NYC try to acquire as much land as they can up in the Catskills, around the reservoirs. They love taking your property from you, and just turn it into a patch of grass next to a river. Back to the gun talk. Some of these things I have no problem with, yet others, I find to be a little fishy. Kind of reminds me of the Patriot Act, and how they sneak some shit in that can interrupt our freedoms/privacies. Actions 2, 3, 4, 16, and 17 scare me. "Gun Violence Reduction Executive Actions: 1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system. 2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system. 3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system. 4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks. 5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun. 6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers. 7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign. 8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission). 9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations. 10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make itwidely available to law enforcement. 11. Nominate an ATF director. 12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations. 13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime. 14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence. 15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effectiveuse of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to developinnovative technologies. 16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes. 17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities. 18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers. 19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education. 20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover. 21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges. 22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations. 23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health."
  6. I hope they prove me wrong, but it's beginning to look like an NIT year.
  7. Occupydemocrats? Ha, I just blocked them on my Facebook feed. Hateful website, and their memes are often false and misleading. Counterpunch as well? Ha. I thought you were better than that, Homer.
  8. But that's avoiding the issue, which is actually a different discussion. I think we need to address police officers entering situations with a hostile mind, not whether or not you should shoot someone because of their "race".
  9. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2563445/Georgia-teen-holding-Nintendo-Wii-controller-shot-police-thought-holding-gun.html White kids get shot as well. Some officers just want to shoot first.
  10. Small pockets of armed resistance do more damage than taking a military head on when out-armed.
  11. I'm not one of those people. I think we need to get out of the middle east altogether, and go a more isolationist route in foreign affairs. And I know many more on the more "libertarian" side feel the same way. Don't lump everyone together.
  12. The amendment is not about protecting the family, although that is one use for the tool. Sometimes you need it to hunt. Maybe you need to take care of a nasty critter on the farm. Maybe one day you might need it to defend yourself from a tyrannical government. Or maybe have it just in case all civilization breaks down, or perhaps a zombie invasion. In the meantime, yeah, go out and target practice. Must be ready at all times. It's a good tool to have. Maybe none of these things will happen in your lifetime, but why not be prepared?
  13. I don't use my screwdriver every day either.
  14. The average gun owner is a normal person, who goes to work every day. Comes home, eats dinner, goes to sleep. The gun is not sitting in their hands at all times, they are not carrying it on a gun rack in their pickup truck. It's merely another tool that they have, for when the time calls for them to use that tool. Much like a table-saw in the garage.
