  1. How much you want to bet that the "silenced" weapon wasn't really silenced? Obviously this guy had a slow burn happening. You don't just randomly get fired and flipped out. Bet there were warning signs for a while now.
  2. If you hadn't read what's allowed lately then take a look at: https://handgunlaw.us/states/tennessee.pdf
  3. It's like we've seen this happen with some other law..now what is it....let me see....oh yeah, illegal immigration! These are not victimless crimes and need to prosecuted. If not, it's just going to get worse and worse, like illegal immigration.
  4. The problem with polls, besides being way too easy rig with the right questions, is that it's simply people's opinion. When you are asking people about policy and complex issues, I would say close to 99% have absolutely no clue about what they are being polled about. I would love to see a poll done where after they poll they give an education about the issues and repoll to see how much it changes.
  5. As a life member this is more than unacceptable. NRA needs an entire leadership change if it's every going to do members any good in the future.
  6. You think walmart would look at what happen wtih Dicks and avoid a foolish mistake, but oh well. I will be buying 100% of my ammo from academy from now on. They seem to have a better selection and price anyway. Probably will avoid shopping there from now on anyway. I can get most of what I got there from Kroger anyway for the same price or cheaper.
  7. This is a crazy story. The fact that a very obviously adult was in the car with the AC running and this was the second cops reaction is disconcerting. Heck, why would anyone report this in the first place?
  8. Save your money on the 1Gbps. I have 300 Mbps and rarely get the full speed down or up. It's going to be a few more years until all the servers we access actually will deliver such speeds.
  9. I'm 37 and this festival is far more interesting than bonnaroo. Very interesting mix of bands. I did shoot a music video for tyler bryant and the shakedown years ago and they are a pretty dang good band.
  10. They called me yesterday and I didn't answer. Called today from a different number and when I answered the lady said she was paid to call me and that Ollie North had asked her to call me....and that's when I said, "listen, I am a life member and the NRA leadership needs to go after hanging us out on bump stocks. have a nice day. click." I saw an article yesterday that the NRA spent $40 MILLION last year with their PR firm. Can you imagine how how many good laws we could pass at the state level and how many lawsuits could be filed for that much money? Not to mention that ole' Wayne makes over $1 million a year. The libs claim that the NRA is just a wing of the gun lobby, but in reality it's just a money making scam for the officers.
  11. Two things. First, the bridge was listed in "fair" condition in the report. So not "good" or "great" condition. Second, the driver's guardian angel surely has a concussion this morning. Talk about a close call.

    NRA Rant

    Here, I fixed it for you. That's coming from an active lifetime member of the NRA. As someone else mentioned, the SAF is also a much better org to join than the NRA. Unfortunately, the NRA in action only really defends hunting and basic self-defense. They cover modern rifles (AR-15's and any other modern, plastic gun) and take ads in American Rifleman, but I've seen very little practical defense from them in the last 8 years. The same goes for supporting carrying laws. They seem to support more terrible carry laws in TN that don't restore our rights than actually using their might to get things like constitutional carry, or public school carry.
  13. The law changed two years ago. Private K-College can allow carry. It's not automatic, but I would say 99.9% of them have no clue that they were supposed to decide one way or another after the law passed. The issue is, if they ban, they are supposed to post, but 99.9% didn't know they were supposed to post before the law. Considering how the carrying where alcohol is served law was stuck down after first being passed for being constitutionally vague, I would think that if you were caught on private school property that wasn't posted and arrested you would have a good case because they were supposed to notify you by posting that carry was not legal. It's really something that should be fixed next session by slipping a very minor revision to to make it totally legal unless posted.
  14. A private school which can now allow carry as of a few years ago.
  15. You obviously are unaware of the massive surpluses from sales tax we had each quarter last year. The state of TN does not need more money. They, in fact, need to lower the sales tax because it's obviously taking it way too much money. Watching them talk about how to spend the extra money after each quarter was reported was sickening considering they had raise the gas tax last year.
