  1. I just went to the side of caution and didn't carry while I was there. Just struck me as odd that the signage had changed since it was very obvious in the past.
  2. Never lived anywhere but TN or GA but go ahead with your assumptions... Just remember the first three letters.
  3. TN Department of Homeland Security and Homeland Security are completely separate state and federal agencies. I know some people that work for the Federal Homeland Security and they wish the state of TN came up with their own name because they get sick and tired of getting calls about drivers licenses and such and then get cussed out because they tell them they are separate.
  4. Last year when I added a motorcycle endorsement (and every time before) the door had all kinds of signs and gun busters saying you can't carry at the DMV. Last week I went to the DMV for my son's Learner's Permit and none of that signage was there and the printed out letters saying the same thing were no longer there. Did something change that makes CCW legal at the DMV?
  5. When the state took over the permitting process you could not carry into an place that sold. That was changed a few years later. You can now carry where it's sold and served.
  6. Humm.. I thought Colt was already out of the AR business and on the verge of bankruptcy for some time.
  7. I thought I was going to end up with a handy list of companies to stop doing business with. By the time I finished reading the list I realized there wasn't as single company on the list we do business with.
  8. I know several people who are into sporting clays, hunting, etc that have this exact mentality. "I don't own an AR or AK so it won't effect me" thinking that if they sacrifice what other's like they would never come after their shotguns and bolt action guns. No one eats an elephant in one bite....
  9. Can you share with us what is so vague? Reading the language posted by Garfua I just don't see the innocuous language that would enable the government to start confiscating guns or create a registry of some sorts. To me this looks more like an advertising campaign that's designed to bring about awareness in properly storing guns safely.
  10. She is just looking out for American jobs. No import ARs, just ones make in the USA.... Moron..
  11. I've never understood the push back to this. Maybe it's because I like to keep my guns and don't want to make it easy on some thief trying to take my guns.
  12. The difference with the bumpstock vs. a suppressor is that bumpstocks were not tracked. They had no serial number and no record of who bought and sold them plus their intent was to exploit a loophole in the law. A suppressor is tracked, has strict guidelines on who can own them, how they are stored, transported, etc. The press and their masters in the DNC has not picked up on suppressors like they did bump stocks. I never understood how Bumpstocks lasted as long as they did before they were banned. I wonder how many thousands of people out there have them and don't even know they are banned now. I do wonder if this guy had a legitimate suppressors or did he buy one of those "solvent traps" from the idiots at a gun show. I stood there in amazement at one gun show in Chattanooga while the nimrods selling the adaptor to put an oil filter on the end of a gun openly talked about using them as cheap suppressors. I've not seen them at the last gun show or two. Maybe their dumbasses are in jail.
  13. Switching to an online class vs an actual class. How do they know you are the one that took the class and someone didn't do it for you?
  14. I'm another one that is not a fan of the bill. When I took my carry permit the second time (returning from living out of state) I was shocked that about 40% of the class had never owned a gun and at least 20% of the class had not pulled the trigger on a gun in the last 20 or more years. I think it's a valid complaint that some of these people should have some form of training so they know to keep their booger hook off the bleaping trigger. I too am concerned about what this will do for reciprocity with other states. Instead of removing the requirement for the class make a change so that you can show proof of other forms of formal training. Hunter safety course, former military, competitive pistol shooting etc. If you know how to handle a gun there is no reason to take the class but if you are not even sure which end to look at then you should have some kind of training.
  15. Idiots, complete idiots. Don't they realize they took the animals out of the cage and now the Lion is free to feast upon the other animals? What were they thinking?
