  1. I doubt anyone cares but my Florida permit arrived yesterday. Apparently they have a very low bar for fingerprints. I'm amazed they accepted the ones I sent because they looked like they were done by a child. It took 2 months which is a lot longer than TN.

  3. Yep. I pointed this out recently that we were all excited about HPA, NFA repeal, etc. To my knowledge, not a single bill was brought to a vote. You can't blame the RINO's when no one even attempts to pass anything.
  4. These 2 things are great, but essentially inverse of one another. We're seeing this play out in real time. You cannot lower taxes while simultaneously increasing spending. The GOP is a lot of things, fiscally responsible they are not. They like to claim that they are, so long as they aren't in power. The next recession is going to be a real mess. If we thought $1 trillion deficits were huge I can only imagine what's about to come.
  5. Fixed that for you. Parties change. Things happen. I would not be surprised if the GOP flips on this issue in my lifetime.
  6. The bottom line is that our President, supposedly the savior of the 2nd Amendment, encouraged and pushed for this to happen. He went on record multiple times saying it. Had Obama done the same thing we would have had multiple threads and 100 angry responses. The gun community would be livid right now.
  7. I asked this same question a few months ago. No one took the bait.
  8. Multiple witnesses have also directly challenged the official account. They claim that several officers were already on scene when another officer burst in and shot the security guard. Even other officers were shocked and were yelling that he was one of the good guys. I'd like to see the body cams before passing judgment. We're all guessing at this point. I do agree that we've always been taught to secure the gun before officers arrive. With this being an active scene, I can understand why the guard was hesitant to holster his gun. Just a sad situation all around.

    Self defense while intoxicated?

    It's also legal in Florida and Georgia to have a drink or two while armed. I could be wrong but my understanding is that even 1 sip in TN could result in arrest and loss of carry permit.
  11. This is a sad one. Police responding to a shooting kill a security officer that was holding the bad guy at gun point. http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/crime/several-people-shot-at-robbins-bar-police-say
  12. I agree. Most of the people I talk to are very moderate. Even my democratic friends are not anti gun, contrary to what this forum says about the left. Even the ones that seemed to favor gun control quickly changed their mind once I explained some things to them.
  13. How exactly do the dems plan to get this accomplished? We are we even concerned? Nothing is going to get through the Senate.
