cool name but i'm too old to be fighting and i don't think it's a good idea to be talking about an armed resistance on a public forum, ever heard of treason?...besides i have no guns for them to take. i think i buried them all somewhere and can't seem to remember where.

and yes, to the earlier question. if EVERYONE every single american started packing illegally or legally it would make the laws mute (which they already are since criminals ignore them anyway)...all of these recent shootings in "gun free zones" are PROOF that gun laws don't work. the problem is that many refuse to acknowledge that proof.

The next day they interveiwed a guy and showed a wound in his leg and said the bullet was still in his leg. The full story article said it was a 7.62mm. That don't sound right. It looked like a 22LR wound. A 7.62 would have tore his leg up.
Agreed.

A .308/7.62 bullet would NOT stop in a leg unless it was a indirect hit and the bullet lost a lot of energy before hitting the leg.

Every whitetail I have shot with a .308/7.62 had an exit wound. A BIG exit wound at that. The last deer I hit in the heart at about 150 yards was knocked onto it's back, legs up and was dead before we got to him.

Let them read it and let them understand Syria and that not all Americans are cowardly and afraid of them. Many have gone to death in the Revolutionary war, Civil War, WWI and WWII for our freedom and we will not stop here. Anywhere there is tyranny there will always be men willing to fight it.

We the older people let this happen so why should our young people have to fight it. It was our laziness. apathy and non-caring that let this happen. Perhaps it is up to us old timers to fight as our days are numbered anyway so let's not go out as cowards but as true Americans fighting for our constitution.

OK, both of you quit it. I tried hold an intelligent conversation to find a solution to our lousy government and the moron mind set for gun control and you two act like children. No wonder we can't get anything done.

Today the news said a 22 cal was used in the shootings. They said it once while talking about the AK at least 4 times. Now I want to know how many rounds were fired from each gun and how many people if any were hit with 7.62 rounds. They use any means they can to attack assault weapons.

the older ak47 is 30 caliber-7.62--- the new model AK-the ak74 IS 22 caliber it is the 7.62 x 39 brass necked down to 22 caliber.--some new models fire the AMERICAN 223 caliber. years ago the Russians decided the AMERICAN 22 caliber round was better than their 7,62x39 round. and decided to make the new model (AK74) in 22 caliber. YOU are correct the media does not know their butt from a hole in the ground about firearms. and I am not defending them--- just stating facts that the new ak74 is 22 caliber.----- I doubt if the media has a clue as to what anyone was shot with. one news channel I heard the dittsy broad newscaster talking about a shooting-- say the victim was shot with a AUTOMATIC REVOLVER--- now that is just plan ignorant.

That's because you are stupid and did not bother to read from the beginning of the posts on page one. You are just a loud mouth with nothing to contribute.

I thought you would have more guts than that, Rebel. Why do you use that name if you have no courage? The Air Force taught me that they love it when you complain because they know what you are thinking but if you are quiet they worry.

So here is something else for you to read since I think that you are blowing smoke and don't even live in Texas.

Are there any tours that visit the many gang shooting locations within Chicago that might be running Halloween specials?

Yeah, I'm a loud mouth. But, I have plenty to contribute. Stupid? No, not me. But coming from a clown that wants to go by the name "Become a Criminal" I'll consider it a compliment.
"rebel" is actually carrying you in the conversation. Take a quick second to thank him.

That's a great idea. You can have tours in armored cars. Any entrepreneurs out there?
