  2. [quote name="DaveTN" post="1113573" timestamp="1392856332"]Good grief, cops file suit against an anti-gun policy of the NFL and the bad guys here are the cops??? Yes, cops are a special group. HCP holders are ….. You guessed it; a special group. If it’s illegal in MN, do what Texas did; tell the NFL it’s illegal and they can’t stop them. I suspect it’s not illegal and that’s what the lawsuit is about. If that’s the case they will lose and have to leave their guns in their cars like everyone else.[/quote] In some ways maybe, but I would argue they aren't bad guys but elitists. Police officers think they should have special privileges because they are or we're officers. That is a concept that places them above a citizen in the hierarchy of society, which is IMO dangerous as it reinforces the "us-them" mindset that is hard for officers not to fall into, dealing with the parts of society they often do. That leads to more bad things. I know a number of officers. Most don't shoot much, and aren't super gun folks. Competent yes, but so can a civilian. So no, not bad guys, but yes elitists that need to remember they are a civilian. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  5. A recent study actually showed that most school shootings are conducted by students during the school day and by gang members. Folks we must concentrate on the reason we have those who want to visit violence on others, and the privy of self defense as a human right. We will never make things secure. Look at prisons. Many are very "secure" if you consider escape but not if you are inside and targeted by a predator. I, for one, do not want our schools to look like a secure facility with concertina wire and guard towers. Many references are made here about metal detectors. That is all well and good but they are rarely used and maintained as they are supposed to be. Weather change? You have to recalibrate most of those bad boys. Does anyone? No. Focus on the cause. It would make sense socially, criminologically, economically, and constitutionally. Just my two cents.
  6. Just thought I would share after I read this: http://globalpublicsquare.blogs.cnn.com/2013/12/08/the-real-tragedy-of-americas-gun-violence/?hpt=hp_t1  
  7. I may well get one. I have thought about getting a tag for my car, but I just do not like having things posted on there that identify my jalopy really but on my DL I think I would be quite proud of. 
  8. When I posted it was blatantly posted on the sliding door. Perhaps they took it down? 
  9. Yes we do, that was an amazing act of kindness and really warms the hart... 
  10. I was talking about this with my lady and we realized we were talking about two separate stories, same jurisdiction. David Eckert and then Timothy Young... 
  11. They did, but then again I have liked some things that came out of them - National Treasure movies were pretty good. 
  12. So they fired Michael Arndt from writing Star Wars Episode VII. He wrote Empire and Jedi as well as Raiders as I understand it.    I just had to vent, as I am worried that a beloved series from the childhood will be trashed in the same manner as Star Trek which has left me feeling like I ate empty calories after watching them.    Dang it.    /endrant
  13. I was thinking that as I scrolled down reading what people had said. Let me know if it works out as I might take a gander for the exact same reason. 
  14. TankerHC I hear the same things from Dallas and Houston. The big urban centers are also the center of $$ in a state and thus get to swing it quite a bit - look at California and New York. People not in the large urban areas can barely get a word in edgewise. The chuckleheads can focus their efforts there and sway the bulk of voters - and then Texas falls like others.
