  1. I didn't have a choice, the military collected my DNA and submitted it to a database for ID purposes. Now, that database is open, with subpoena(?), to LEO to find criminals.
  2. IDK, the LEO getting more in front of the car may have been a mistake, but when the car kept coming, yea, I would have made the same choice. As to the gun...The LEO was just doing a felony stop, the perp knew the car was stolen, the perp knew he had a gun, which is probably why he didn't get out when told to do so, instead choosing to try to run the cop down.
  3. That's my #1 album pick.
  4. I don't see any charges coming. A stolen vehicle stop is a felony stop, so drawn weapons is policy in most jurisdictions, the perp knew he was in a stolen vehicle, knew he had a gun, and still refused commands. IMO, the LEO's previous write-ups, should not be a determining factor in this incident; he was directed to the vehicle, and he had a perfectly reasonable reason to fire. He may not be the best guy on the force, but nothing in this set of videos shows, IMO, negligence or unnecessary force.
  5. I took my first computer class in 91 or 92, back before windows, it was on DOS and we had to code all our own programs and "internet" was through a very slow phone based modem. Though social media is, IMO, ruining the internet, the internet does have it's merit if you self limit what you do on it. In my pocket, I now have the ability to calculate trajectories on the fly, get up to date weather, access maps, find my location and call for help if I've fallen and can't get up. And of course I can take a picture of my harvest and post it before I've even left the field.
  6. Well, this anti-gunner corporation has gone all in. These companies need to be put in their place. They social warriors take over decent companies and turn them against half their customers, WTH? https://www.gunsamerica.com/digest/levi-strauss-end-gun-violence/WS Levi Strauss CEO Goes Full Anti-Gun, Paying Employees to ‘Volunteer’ for Gun-Control Organizations by JORDAN MICHAELS on SEPTEMBER 4, 2018 Levi’s CEO Chip Bergh bravely took a stance this week against the “gun violence epidemic.” (Photo: Levi Strauss) In the best attempt to date to unseat Edward Stack as the nation’s Virtue Signaler in Chief, Levi Strauss’s CEO Chip Bergh bravely announced this week his company’s support of “youth activists” working to end the “gun violence epidemic” in America and encouraged other “business leaders” to do the same. “As business leaders with power in the public and political arenas, we simply cannot stand by silently when it comes to the issues that threaten the very fabric of the communities where we live and work,” he said in a recent op-ed published by Fortune. “While taking a stand can be unpopular with some, doing nothing is no longer an option.” Naming his brand among the “pioneers of the American West” and the “great symbols of American freedom,” Bergh outlines three ways he’s hoping to restrict the constitutional rights of his fellow Americans. First, he plans to establish the Safer Tomorrow Fund, which will dole out $1 million in “philanthropic grants” to “nonprofits and youth activists who are working to end gun violence in America.” Next, Bergh and his company will join Everytown for Gun Safety’s new Business Leaders for Gun Safety coalition. Roughly paraphrasing Everytown’s website, this group is working to join banks and other businesses doing their darndest to bankrupt gun companies and marginalize gun owners. Finally, Bergh hopes to incentivize his employees to join him in his righteous crusade. Levi Strauss will double its usual employee donation match to anti-gun organizations and pay employees for sixty working hours per year (5 hours per month) to volunteer for the same organizations. “We’re encouraging our employees to use their time to make an impact,” he said. View image on Twitter Bergh assures his readers he doesn’t want to repeal the Second Amendment or suggest that gun owners aren’t responsible. He’s a former Army officer, after all, and he took an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Those constitutional rights don’t apply to everyone, of course. Bergh quotes retired four-star general Michael Hayden, who said in a promotional piece for the Giffords Center that “some people… should never have access to any weapons.” In a dramatic conclusion, Bergh explains that Levi Strauss has “never been afraid to take an unpopular stand to support a greater good,” highlighting his company’s support for integration before the Civil Rights Act and for same-sex couples all the way back in the 1990s. “While each one of these stands may have been controversial at the time, history proved the company right in the long run,” he says, courageously. “And I’m convinced that while some will disagree with our stand to end gun violence, history will prove this position right too.” Levi Strauss may have been at the forefront of the Civil Rights movement, but they’re hardly the first company to take a stand against Guns: The Great American Evil. Following the Parkland massacre, a variety of companies, including Walmart, Bank of America, Shopify, and Dick’s Sporting Goods, announced policies designed to curb the Second Amendment rights of their customers and business partners.
  7. I have two of these desks, they are in great condition. Looking to get $250 if sold individually, but willing to sell both for $450. I'm open to trades but am not looking for anything specific so ask, I may just say yes. I have one in Nashville and another in Clarksville but can get the together if both are wanted. I can meet somewhere between Clarksville and Nashville if need be, I think shipping is probably a no-go due to the weight. https://www.varidesk.com/products/standing-desk-pro-plus?o=size%3A36+inch%3Bcolor%3Ablack
  8. Just have the paperwork handy, if/when they deny it, send them the paperwork to clear it up.
  9. You don't happen to need a Serpa for a Beretta 92 do you?
  10. This has been brought up before, and while I'm not one to ask for one, I personally don't care if they ask for one. If I want it, I'll sign a bill of sale, show my ID/CCW whatever.
  11. By the looks of those two in the pictures, these were not junk. Seems that no matter what, confiscated guns, if the legal owner doesn't sue to get it back, is ordered destroyed. Remember where we're talking about, it's a leftist, gun grabbing paradise where they would repeal the 2nd in a heartbeat if they could. Well, seems there is definitely more to this, and possibly more to come:
  12. Unless the way back machine was hacked, it was there all of 2018. https://web.archive.org/web/20180125225558/https://www.benchmade.com/charitable-contributions Hasn't really changed my mind about this particular situation though. They'll need to show more contrition than they are doing now.
  13. Sorry bud, but sometimes you have to just pass up some business. I highly doubt this would be a lucrative contract, so the amount anyone would get would not be worth the trouble unless you support such things.
  14. What's so hard about letting us exercise our rights? I'm sure most, if not all, would keep their's here for the same reason, I know I will.
