With politicians, it's never actually about what's good for the citizenry. It's about money, getting elected, and maintaining their power trip.

There's also the lack of universal background checks.  It's something that the vast majority of American gun owners support yet the NRA has been opposing them for decades.

That's the NRA being essentially the lobbying arm for the gun manufacturers, not their members.

Last I heard, the NRA is losing people like crazy. Most every prominent voice I've seen within the gun community has moved away from them. But I hear that's because they're living too high on the hog, and also their support of the bumpstock ban.

Its correct in regard to that poll of 1200ish people. The true figure could be the same or way off.

I wouldn't be sorry to see them go. I'm a diehard 2nd amendment guy and I've never believed they had my best interests in mind.

I think the background checks will pass, and haven't heard anything yet that would convince me they would pose a problem. The red flag stuff worries me because of a lack of due process. Which I'm glad to see is finally being discussed in Ohio. I honestly think we're within 2-5 years of a new AWB. Makes me glad I'm a revolver and lever gun guy.

Q
Both of those and the media portrayal as both sides.


The truth is always in the middle.  There is too much gun violence in the USA, but it is not nearly what the media portrays it to be. 


Measures should be taken for it to be harder for some random f**kwit to murder innocents, but stricter gun control laws right now will do absolutely nothing for the main issue right now.  The violent offender looking to cause harm with a weapon already has that weapon. 

The proposed laws only work for the future.  The solutions for right now aren't so obvious.  And I dont know what solution you could have that would stop somebody that has a weapon today wanting to go out and kill people tomorow OTHER than a complete weapon ban which I can assure you will never work in the US.  There would be war. 


I also don't like the ommission of the fact that most mass shootings in the US happen in the innercity against a population that people just don't care about.

Chicago is like a war zone and it is NEVER REPORTED with any sort of sincerity or concern.  But it isn't reported, because to be reported, gun violence has to happen to citizens that people have to care about.

This shit also pisses me off. 

I believe ALL Americans should have the ability to feel safe and secure in their own homes and neighborhoods. 

To me I don't place one American life over another.  Others don't feel the same way, if they did, they would realize America has a gun violence problem along time before white people started getting killed by randos.

This kind of stuff also gets on my nerves when US media starts talking about all kinds of other foreign issues.  We need to get our own house in order first. 

Anyways, end of night rant.

So I was reinstalling this old quad rail to my 10/22, when I realized most of the old screws were missing. I was sitting there staring at the thing, and glanced over at my lever rifle. A couple of black shoe laces later, and I have committed sacrilege.

My lever rifle is now "apocalypse tactical". I'll run it that way once, and then strip it back down tomorrow.

Does anybody here "roll their own"?

Any reloaders in the house?

With all of the laws being pushed here in Cali, I'd love to learn the trade.  Maybe one day.

Wal-Mart is ending sales of handgun ammunition nationwide. Along with pistol sales in Alaska and "short barrel rifle ammo". Which is French for .223/5.56

Short barrel rifle ammo. Now that's funny.

You'd think they'd at least keep the revolver ammo.
