  1. Used to be a welder and was pretty darned good at reading drawings and prints. One of my bosses used to call me over alot and have me figure out what some drawing or print was all about. Blamed his eyes.... I thought he was full of BS and couldn't figure out the more complicated stuff. Now I know the ridiculous helpless feeling of not being able to read fine print or even semi-fine print without proper light and magnification. Sorry old boss for doubting you.
  2. We're all addicted to cheap communist china products to one extent or another wherever we buy from. Walmart has it down to a science and some don't have a choice economically to avoid shopping there. Whatever loss from ticked off 2ndA folks won't make a dent in their profits I'm afraid. The only good thing is maybe savvy Gun Shop owners will set up shop next to Walmarts. This push against guns will be small victory for small business in the short term. long term... our rights are fading fast with every mass shooting by these crazies.
  3. Another "remedy" I surprisingly haven't heard this time around is age resrictions bumped up to 21. (I am against this but perhaps an enhanced BG for under 21s is something they will look at?) unconstitutional I'm sure. And not fair to young people. BTW, Might stronger BG checks that have been discussed entail just fixing the glitches in the system we already have in place? Nothing new...Just clean up the errors and ommisions that occur. Haven't there been cases where people who are banned by existing laws gotten a gun despite a BG check? Dems and Repubs should be able to agree on that without debate. That's low hanging fruit.
  4. This dummy cared a lot. Too much. This guy had adopted the religion of the left, doomed planet due to man's overpopulation. According to his manifesto he was trying to save the resources of the US and Texas by killing Hispanic illegal aliens to encourage recycling? Or something like that. If you trust the media to explain his ramblings you'd think he was obsessed with Trump and the border alone. What I got from it was he was a nationalist environmentalist. Not a cookie cutter wrapped up in a neat bow white MAGA hat wearing white supremacist stereotype. All we are getting is fake news. I'm not a fan of publishing a mass murderers manifesto but this guys crime is being used to smear a President. It needs to be seen.
  5. Not sure he said UBCs or just stronger Backgrounds but the Dems won't budge an inch to make Trump look good on anything. Dont worry.
  6. And yet the liar Cory Booker was claiming this morning that Trump hasn't done any gun control measures. That's just not so!, and Chucky Todd knew that yet did not correct the loudmouth. Unbiased media my butt! I was yelling at the old boob tube this morning. I'd bet Trump will go after 100 round mags now...not that it will stop deranged people from mass killing. Only a police state on perpetual lockdown will stop this sort of stuff as we all know. Saying that... outlawing 100 rd. magazines is the least offensive measure he can throw at law abiding gun owners. Most don't even know they exist. In this day and age Trump is our best hope at stemming the tide of our loss of gun rights. He's up against a wall and if he loses in 2020 we will be losing alot more than 100 rd mags!

    Quilts

    Sort of like a clothing time capsule. My granny used to quilt and I have some polyester late 60s and 70s examples packed away myself!
  8. Shooter and his sister were registered Democrats, might mean nothing but not hearing it from MSM of course. Being a registered Dem would suggest he was liberal. All the Sunday talk shows focused on White Nationalist Terrorism and TX shooting. Trump's anti illegal immigration stance fueling shootings like this etc. This situation, very little info or accuisations and speculation... I'm guessing he's not fitting their mold no matter how hard they try. Just an every day crazy guy. Poor parents, lots of photos of the mom being so proud of her kids. This Facebook thing with people posting how great their lives are and their family are. All the fake uber happy photos. Had to be some issues here prior to this.
  9. Baphomet?? Satanic goathead or something...what's that about?
  10. The fact that they are not mentioning that leads me to think he may have been white so racial motive not a factor? But maybe they just don't know yet.
  11. One of the victims was the shooter's sister and her boyfriend. Something odd here.
  12. They do it already but....Expect the monitering of these websites like 4Chan as well as Stormfront type sites, Reddit , Facebook and little old sites like TNgunowners to be more scrutinized. I'm sure I have a profile somewhere in a database that an alarm would go off if I was posting more extereme violent thoughts. All right leaning posters have I'm sure. I just hope they watch the lefties as well! I'm ok with this to a point as these are open forums with no expectation of privacy. It won't stop every mass killing but it could help.
  13. I read that last night.. Can't read that jpeg well but from what I remember.... Shooter's motives were also "save the planet" enviromental as well as anti open borders and race mixing. Seems he was into population control, (correct me if I'm wrong) as I only read it once last night. He blamed both political parties but especially the Dems for encouraging the illegal immigration to eventually get votes and one party rule. Sounds nothing like the MSM cherry picking of the manifesto twisting him into a Trump Fan. I mean who's to say what % of this nuts motives were all the doomed planet rhetoric the left is spewing? This guy was all over the place. Maybe he saw all the Dem Presidential candidates declaring they want to decriminalize illegal border crossings and that set him off because of how that might effect the enviroment with all the new consumers in the US.
  14. I was 5. Not sure I remember 11 but Apollo13 was on my radar for sure.
  15. Not a Kennedy fan and reports say he got wishy washy on the program for political reasons but he sure got everyone fired up about space and deserves much credit for our acheivement with these two speeches. Polar opposite of Dem speeches of today about ask what your Country can do for you! But I digress. Kennedy stood before Congress on May 25, 1961, and proposed that the US "should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth." The Rice University Speech We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people. For space science, like nuclear science and all technology, has no conscience of its own. Whether it will become a force for good or ill depends on man, and only if the United States occupies a position of pre-eminence can we help decide whether this new ocean will be a sea of peace or a new terrifying theater of war. I do not say that we should or will go unprotected against the hostile misuse of space any more than we go unprotected against the hostile use of land or sea, but I do say that space can be explored and mastered without feeding the fires of war, without repeating the mistakes that man has made in extending his writ around this globe of ours. There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation may never come again. But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas? We choose to go to the Moon! We choose to go to the Moon...We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win, and the others, too.
