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. How does someone justify to themselves having access to evidence, *not* viewing said evidence, and then publicly condemning the person the evidence shows to have acted within the law, policy, and their own natur...

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...

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

I think it is too late once they get into office. A much more vigorous effort should be put into backing and electing candidates who best reflect your views. Yes but if you live in a district full of morons you should not give up. That's pretty tough when you can't see how your efforts achieve anyt...

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

Just respond with I will continue to vote against you in every election and tell everyone I know that you do not believe in the constitution. I left out the bit about the constitution, but my initial email did include a line about feeling obligated to vote against him even if I dislike his opponent...

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

I recently wrote to my representative to inform him that he had voted incorrectly at every chance he got this year, and gave some examples of why I thought his votes were incorrect. No reply so far, but given that he's DFL and has a history of voting for gun control regulations, I expect that if I g...

Re: Second Amendment Protection Act

I really doubt this will gain any traction until such time as marijuana is federally legal, at which point the 4473 will basically have to change. That said, I'd be quite shocked if there weren't hundreds of thousands of 4473s where people have lied on that question even from before Colorado led the...

Re: Sheriff slashes PTC Fees for Vets & Ret. Police

A) The "reasonable and direct cost..." of the permit processing is less than $100 in which case the sheriff is breaking the law as written when they charge everyone else "full price" Given that not all of them charge the same price, this has always seemed likely to me, even outs...

Re: Sheriff slashes PTC Fees for Vets & Ret. Police

so why does a Veteran have to pay an additional fee to have a Veterans License Plate........................ Is that more equal or less equal...... Because that's a non-standard option, roughly equivalent to getting a custom/vanity plate. In terms of PTC, the "product" is the same, so why...
