Thanks for proving my point.

For over 30 years, overseas and here at home, as a Marine, and as a law enforcement officer, along with millions of others, defended your Constitutional right to your opinion. As an NRA and FBI trained Police Firearms Instructor, I trained hundreds of officers in tactical firearm use to improve the ability of other officers to protect your Constitutional right to your opinion.

But as soon as my opinion differs from yours, why I better leave this country - cause - by God - if someone don't agree with you - they just ain't 'Merican.

Somehow you have come to believe that being an 'Merican means you have a right to your opinion, and nobody else can disagree with you.

Please tell us all what education, training, sacrifices and service you have offered our country to make your opinion the only acceptable 'Merican position to hold.

Obviously, your attitude is perfect for Iran or North Korea, where disagreement and personal opinions are not permitted.

Well my little Constitution Hating Communist Comrade,
just let me know how much you need for tickets for you to visit your Beloved Leader in North Korea.

I'm buying.

As a trained fire arms instructor could you shed some light on this...

In previous discussions on the "unprecedented" buy up of hollow point ammunition it has been suggested that training is typically done with wadcutters, are there any advantages to training with the same ammo used in the field, or is it simply a matter of cost for 9mm wadcutter vs standard hollow points?

Just curious.

For whatever it's worth,(and many here will say not much), I believe the general consensus is you should train wearing the cloths your ordinarily wear when working, using the holsters and related equipment you use when working, firearm the exact same weapon you'll carry when working, and firing the exact same ammunition you use when working. Duplicating to the greatest degree possible the "field" conditions should be a major goal. Everyone has stories of how under stress your muscle memory takes over, and if you ordinary shoot a Glock or a revolver, you'll forget to hit the .45's thumb safety, and if you use a shoulder holster, you'll reach for your waistband if you train with a hip holster.

Bean counters hated to pay for high performance rounds when generic ammunition is so much cheaper, but we thought it necessary. I make my daughters shoot high performance .40 cal. jacketed hollow points when we go shooting with their weapons even though generic rounds are a lot cheaper. One thing we could never do is make detectives and the administrators shoot on the range in suits and ties, but always thought that was a mistake.

Good points.

Having sent checks to the first wife for years, every so often I thought it would have been more merciful if she'd used the Charter Arms "Bulldog" we kept in the gun safe. But, as she joked with me through the years, an employed ex-husband is a great investment.

Maybe we should give everyone explosive suicide vests to wear, after all, it's the person that uses the explosive suicide vest that kills people, not the explosive suicide vest itself. I'm sure one of those things wouldn't go off accidentally...

Agreed.

Maybe we should just sell C-4, Semtex, and Det Cord, the dynamite at the grocery store.

After all, it's not the explosives that kill people, it's people using the explosives; and

people are still killed with explosives even though the government has been regulating them for years, therefore, the regulations must be useless; and

when you outlaw explosives, only outlaws will have explosives.

This is fun.

Those who want to take away guns are the same people who completely support the murders of 3,700 innocent children every day - EVERY DAY - through abortion.

The argument should not be about guns. Its about the systematic devaluation of human life by liberal political policies. Disarming the public only leads to more liberalism and dictatorial power.

Get yourself armed with the most powerful weapons you can find. The time is rapidly approaching when you will need to defend yourself, your family and your community against government forces.

It isn't just federal. If anyone should know about corrupt state and local law enforcement, its the citizens of Union, Towns, and the entire Enotah judicial district!

Last I heard nobody wanted to take away your right to obtain and maintain a handgun, shotgun, or rifle.

All that is suggested is that if you have a firearm, you keep it secured, and that anyone who fails to keep there firearms secure be imprisoned for a substantial period of time, because their reckless conduct endangers the lives of the rest of us.

We got to talking about cars and explosives because the analogies demonstrate how silly most os the arguments made against reasonable firearms regulations are.

We keep a Remington 20 gauge pump for self-defense at the cabin. Nothing says "go away" like the sound of a pump shotgun being charged.

Good luck and I hope you never need to use your firearm.

A guy interviewed on the Atlanta news was asked why he ran out after the shooting in CT and bought another Bushmaster? His answer "I have hand guns and rifles and shotguns but only one assault rifle." I wanted to get another before I couldn't get one".
Uh Huh.

When Newtown school shooter Adam Lanza's parents divorced three years ago, the settlement agreement left his mother, shooting victim Nancy Lanza, with a hefty annual alimony payment, according to court documents.
When police arrived, Adam fatally shot himself.
Nancy Lanza filed for divorce from Peter Lanza in 2008, after 27 years of marriage, citing an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, according to a divorce judgment on file in Superior Court in Stamford.
When the divorce was finalized in September 2009, Adam Lanza was 17 years old. The couple had two sons; their other son is Ryan Lanza. In 2010, Nancy Lanza was to receive $240,000 for the year. In 2011, alimony increased to $265,000, followed by $289,800 in 2012. By 2015, the amount was to be $298,000.
The agreement was for the couple to have joint legal custody of Adam, and they were to consult with each other on any major decisions about him, such as any decisions about his education and medical care.
Peter Lanza agreed to pay for the children's college expenses, and he agreed to provide a car for Adam.
Paula Levy, a mediator who worked with the couple during their divorce, told the Associated Press that Nancy didn't like to leave her youngest son alone, and the couple mentioned Adam had been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder which can lead to difficulties in relating to others. Levy indicated the Lanzas were loving parents who wanted the best for their son.
"These people are soft-spoken, gentle, both of them saying,'What can we do to help (Adam)?'" Levy said.
The plan was for Adam to live primarily with his mother, and his father to have liberal visitation and vacations. Any decisions about Adam's health, education and religious upbringing would be made by his mother, after consulting with his father. In the case of any disagreement, Nancy would make the final decision.
In 2009, Nancy Lanza reported no income, while Peter Lanza reported $8,556 a week, or $444,912 gross annual income. Peter Lanza works at General Electric, with his LinkedIn profile describing his current role as tax director.
They had season tickets to Red Sox baseball games, and agreed to alternate attending them.
Nancy Lanza got the house at 36 Yogananda St., Sandy Hook.
The couple had married in Kingston, N.H., in 1981, and first their son Ryan was born in 1988, followed by Adam in 1992.

Sounds good to me. Give all our enemies guns and let them fight amongst themselves. Better yet, give a few of our nukes to the Arabs and let them clean up the middle east themselves.

Sounds like a winner to me.

Only can we sell the the guns and make a few bucks ?

And can we not "intervene" and invade later to "spread democracy" there ?

It would be kind of nice to "spread democracy" in America for a change.
