Re: Minnesota: Hearing on Pro- and Anti-Gun Bills Scheduled

First, would someone explain to me exactly how Senate File 72 would change the current laws on self-defense and justifiable force. I am not a lawyer, but the big change I see with SF 72 is that it appears to remove the duty to retreat. https://www.revisor.mn.gov/bills/text.php?v...

Re: Police have arrested this felon four times in four months

How many times does one need to be arrested while out on bail for other charges before judges start saying it's enough and deny bail? Seems kind of ridiculous to keep letting this guy back out on the street, but what do I know?

Re: P320

FYI It's illegal to sell an item that has been recalled and it opens you up to liability. https://www.consumerreports.org/recalls/dont-sell-recalled-products-at-yard-sale/ I would challenge that statement. Especially since SIG termed it a "voluntary upgrade" rather than a recall. Semantic...

Re: First person charged under Florida 'red flag' law found guil

I'm confused about how the authorities would need a red flag law in order to confiscate weapons from someone who was at the time charged with attempted murder.

Re: 423 Million guns in America

This is the forum that when the news reports he had a dozen guns and several hundred rounds of ammo, we take up a collection because we can't understand how he got down to such a pitiful amount. So if I say that there are only 6 guns under my roof, does the forum buy me 7 more just to get me above ...

Re: George Zimmerman sues family of Trayvon Martin, publisher...

If they can prove that, then Martin's family, the prosecutors, and the state of FL are in for a world of hurt. Fabricating witnesses and hiding evidence that would have meant Martin would never have stood trial is probably criminally actionable in addition to whatever judgment comes from the civil s...

Re: Trap prices

What does your club charge for a round of trap both member and non member? Working on our pricing and up against the "why do we need to charge more" crowd - can not convince them a new PAT Trap is $10000 or better and $3.00 a round is not putting anything aside for Replacement I thought i...

Re: Dem in Virginia working on gun confiscating Gov Says

Surely a flat ban on semi-automatics would get appealed to the SCOTUS with an excellent chance of being struck down? What color is the sky in your world? The color where a flat ban on semi-auto guns is in direct contradiction to the Heller decision ("common use"), and would therefore have...

Re: Democrats frown on targeting gang databases with 'red flag'

We actually debated this issue when trying to get MN's shall-issue law passed. The Dems wanted being listed in the gang database to be grounds for denial. I could see it being grounds for a more detailed look at a person before making a decision (they've got 30 days to approve or deny, after all), ...

Re: Democrats frown on targeting gang databases with 'red flag'

100% makes sense to prevent gang members from having guns, but due process is a thing that needs to be respected, even for people we "know" are bad people. Otherwise, if someone "knows" we're bad people, what's to stop them from giving us the same unfair treatment?

Re: Officer involved shooting St Paul

Wow, the cognitive dissonance of that first quote (Danielle Swift) is downright amazing.

Re: Inexpensive bullet source?

After finding out about Montana Gold (http://montanagoldbullet.com), I have been using them almost exclusively. I order by the case. Even ordering by the case, MGs are expensive. IIRC 124 gr 9mm (JHP, FMJ, or CMJ) is still around 10 cents/bullet when bought by the case from them. Nice bullets, but ...

Re: why medical records and gun laws should still be separate???

I think it's mildly silly that weed is on the federal controlled substance list, but until such time as it becomes federally legalized, this is just one of many "gotchas" people have to be aware of when purchasing guns. It's not like any of this stuff is a secret, and reading the plain lan...
