Re: Media ramping up "gun violence" coverage

I've found my attitude and outlook has greatly improved after I stopped watching Television news.


I stopped watching when they went to digital broadcasting. But I'm afraid my outlook is still pretty depressed.

Re: Gabby Gifford’s new Minnesota gun control group for FUDDS

Has there been any news coverage of this? I did a quick search and couldn't find any.

On the Explore Alexandria website I got a 404 Page not found :o https://explorealex.com/event/2019-state-trap-shooting-championship/2019-06-18/

Re: Night vision/thermal in Minnesota

Is the main fear the use of these systems in nocturnal poaching scenarios? Is it yet another case of the 99% being managed because of the 1% that cannot be trusted? Probably. Just like 'there will be blood in the streets' argument against Shall Issue. The serious/professional poacher is probably al...

Re: Night vision/thermal in Minnesota

97B.081, also found on page 30 of the 2018 hunting regulations, states quite plainly that one is not allowed to cast a light to locate or take any big game, small game or unprotected species except for a few very limited exceptions. That statute seems to not be affected by the new statute so the ol...

Re: Night vision/thermal in Minnesota

Do you have something besides what has been posted here for that belief? No, only what I've read here. The key line from SF 7 is this. (2) a person taking coyote or fox as provided under section 97B.075 and rules adopted under section 97B.605. It only references 97B.075 which says: 97B.075 HUNTING ...

Re: Why no gun ownership protection in MN state constitution?

More entertaining tidbits. http://www.mnopedia.org/event/minnesota-constitutional-convention1857 . .Minnesota politics in the 1850s was particularly intense, with fierce competition between Democrats and Republicans. The Democrats were the older, more established party. The Republicans w...

Re: Why no gun ownership protection in MN state constitution?

It appears some things never change. I wonder who was on the right side back then? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Constitution An election in Minnesota Territory to select Republican and Democratic delegates to a state constitutional convention was held on June 1, 1857, followin...

Re: Night vision/thermal in Minnesota

That is good news, I just wish one could use NV/Thermal/light year round for coyotes. I have them in the yard a couple times a week checking out the chicken coup or challenging my dogs and it is frustrating not being able to get a good shot on them. I've hit more than one but I prefer a quick kill ...

Re: Night vision/thermal in Minnesota

Well here's my mea culpa. I was grousing on another thread about the Senate not hearing any pro gun bills. I guess it didn't have to be heard :)

I'd love to hear the back story, and who we should thank in the legislature that got the job done.

Thank you Bryan and Rob.

Re: 2019 Legislature-Will we be thrown under the bus?

I used to think that way also, until one came by for door to door canvassing. I told them I had written, and was told no one had. She said all the letters supported her position. I think their staff folks edit what goes up the chain, and that they have enough hubris to believe no one disagrees with...

Re: $20 million in death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond

HOW did they possibly relate that to gun violence unless they plan on using that 2 million to disarm police officers? Maybe they should have made them give the 2 mil to police for body cams that are on all the time. At least that would have cost less for the court case when it happens again. I AM a...

Re: $20 million in death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond

I read on another forum that part of the criteria of the settlement was they had to "donate" 2 million towards anti-gun violence. Found it: The settlement calls for the Ruszczyks to donate $US2m to a Minneapolis foundation aimed at addressing gun violence. Isn't that special. Minneapolis ...

Re: Slo-Mo Tank & Artillery Rounds

Years ago, one of the gun rags had an article testing bullet deflection. As I recall they used a board with multiple rows of wooden dowels. Pictures of the dowels showed how quickly the bullets destabilized. I remember that too. I think it is just luck of the draw. The tank video was cool. Really i...
