  1. How is a US Army supposed to be fighting civilians in this country? I thought there were safeguards to protect civilians from the military being turned against the civilian populace.
  2. Residential neighborhood is a little ambiguous. Typically, outside the city limits and reasonable responsible shooters should be able to do what they please. There are things known as property rights and in the city limits the city usually takes excessive advantage of their power to restrict. I wouldn't want to be shooting and interfering with my neighbor if he's very close, but a little politeness and notification plus being responsible should be enough.   There are too many different versions of the word safety out there to suit me. Some folks are a bit emotional.
  3. That's just asinine. If it has anything to do with liability, it is even more ridiculous. Take them back and auction them off to someone who wants them, not be stupid and destroy them.
  4. But Robert, I was talking about the time that you lose all your rights and become a puppet, or slave, and didn't take the time to think about the trap you fell into. How about those Jews in that Alley in Germany? I wonder why they fought back? There are other examples of people fighting back against tyranny. One even in Tennessee, years ago.   In a perfect world, one shouldn't have to think about such things, but we live in one far from perfect. Utopia only exists in books and dreams. Man, once corrupted, becomes the seeker of that absolute power a famous person wrote about. That corrupted man needs to be sought out and broken.
  5. Yeh, the people in CT made several bad choices along the way, but does that mean when they decide to wake up and see what they have done everyone else forget about them? How to win friends and influence people. Uh huh! Turn your backs on people because don't work things out at the same pace as you and you will be a lonely person in the end.  
  6. I can promise anyone right now that, if that day ever comes, it will take more than just the ex-military and the however many active military and police to defend from the kind of action that is slowly working its way toward us. And, if one doesn't realize the threat they are blind, and they haven't read much history.   An aside, but there is a pretty decent mini-series I am watching on Netflix from PBS of all places. Made in Britain of all places, and it is about Big Brother. Worth watching. It's called "Last Enemy". Funny thing about it is that if you live in England you are already being looked at with a microscope. It's really too late over there and they put a show like this out.
  7. Why I asked that was not for any casual scrap, but for when you are back against the wall and haven't realized it, yet. Your family's survival would be a reason to engage. I'm not trying to propose anything more. It appears too many are not thinking something like that could happen. If it ever got to the point that the state went for passing and enforcing my right to own and came looking for me to hand it over it would be pointed the correct way. None of those laws are valid and the latest round in CT would make me do something I would consider worth the resistance.
  8. So one should base his desire for constitutional authority and action on his economic standing? Oh, okay.   Sorry, but that is about as lame as can be. I hope that isn't what some of you are meaning.
  9. What problem? Make a pile, get a big cutter or torch. Those people would be glad to do that, just like every other regime that has done it.
  10. Like all those guys back way when didn't have jobs and were free to just go out and start a revolution.   BOGUS!
  11. And we can't print our own money, like someone else can. But that should be more reason to pick at the scab.
  12. It's a pitiful way to get a law changed, but it may be the only way.
  13. If you can get enough of this bunch in Tennessee to stand together on something I'll ride shotgun all the way.
  14. And that way will at least be a legitimate way for some gun seizures. I'd hate to think a cop would do that to someone without a better reason. That is, since it is an unjust law, otherwise.
  15. Now, Dan. Who would lie? :D   I wish when people post things like this, they would say they received it and not pass it on to someone else to do that. That could have happened. We just don't know, though.   I found this source following the Guns.com article. I would think the letter is real after seeing the part of the article that I could without subscribing to their rag. http://www.journalinquirer.com/politics_and_government/one-more-chance-for-gun-owners/article_2d8f816a-9d93-11e3-b18e-0019bb2963f4.html   Maybe that takes some heat away from the Blaze.
  16. I was referring to the Governor. Ah, I see what you mean, now. We shant stereotype that hairdresser. :D
  17. I'm just suggesting that people understand the likely consequences of their actions because it probably won't end well for those who try to resist. In any case, what I wold do personally is a decision I alone will make and likely won't make until they are on my doorstep...if you want to assume that means I'm putting on my "shackles" you can do so. I think they will if or when something like that happens, Robert. It's not as sensational as you think because I don't see it happening, but it could because of events like this. This won't be the modern day flash mob. I have concerns about things like that, also, but if or when something happens because of some government's actions, I think those affected people will have figured out the reasoning without you or I worrying for them. It may even become you or I within the affected crowd of angry people who may have just had enough, don't you think?   Let's not forget that the this situation in CT or that we see brewing in other parts of the country wasn't created by some King an ocean away over which the people had no say in what happened like we did in the 18th century...WE the people are 100% responsible for where we are now as a country...if they come for our guns it will be because the majority of the people voted for it (or at least don't have a problem with it)...this isn't 1776 no matter how much some try to equate the two periods in history.   No, it isn't, but it is the sentiment of the King's that caused the Fathers to be wary of future tyrants and it was reflected by the documents. We, the people have a duty to do the best we can to preserve this country and everything associated with its success and continuance, and that doesn't mean we should rationalize our lives into oblivion by rewarding tyrants by allowing such unjust laws and blindly obeying them, also. The further success of our republic depends on our continued diligence, up to and including all remedies against those who wish to harm it. We shouldn't blindly obey unjust laws. Just because a law is passed doesn't make it just, only legitimate in some eyes.   Now, if you wish to sit around while you lose that right, whether God given, or acknowledged by the Constitution, that's entirely up to you, but there are those of us who think this is a reason to fight over. Personally, and some may have heard this and think once too many, I think the battle should have been over the very first gun laws, which were and still are unreasonable and unjust.   It's very easy to sit back and quarterback on a forum. It's when you put it on the line that counts. I think everyone thinks it was an atrocity when those children were murdered in Connecticut, but that just goes to show unjust laws are made from emotion. And when emotion is used as a tool by those who wish to disarm We, the people, that government is extremely suspect. In other words, some things are worth fighting over until the problem is fixed.
  18. She probably wouldn't get the headlimes, but I like your way of thinking on that. :D
  19. The Fathers didn't say all solutions were easy when they conspired to write those old dead documents, Robert. You may put your shackles on any time you wish.
