for 5ezpzez – you CYCLE the action of any semi auto pistol or rifle.
Snap caps a ok, but you have to pay for them. Take five or seven rounds, remove the bullet, empty the powder, put the EMPTY casing back in your firearm and pull the trigger. It will fire the primer. NOW, if you reload, remove the primer, if not leave it in place. You can coat the primer or the hole with silicone (like the kind you use in the bathroom. Put the bullet back in place and you have just created your first DUMMY ROUND.
Dummy rounds are VERY useful for checking the cycle of operation (correct functioning) of your firearm. And should always be used instead of live ammo when you are not shooting. It will save you money, It only cost you five or seven rounds, which are much cheaper than snap caps. IF you reload, you already have empty cases and bullets and will know HOW to roll your own dummy rounds. And you can even make your own dummy rounds for .22 rounds as well.

“I’d love to see the ACA repealed, but Obama will veto it unless both houses pass the repeal with a super majority, which they won’t.”
SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR AWAY FROM THE TRUTH.
FOLKS, DO THE MATH. 425 Congress critters, needs a super majority to override a veto. FOLKS, THAT’S 281 VOTES AGAINST.
So, how many Republicans are in Congress — 242 – these three were only making a statement. AT NO TIME DO THE REPUBLICANS HAVE ENOUGH VOTES IN EITHER HOUSE TO OVERRIDE A VETO, with out numerous Democrats changing sides (39 in congress and 22 in Senate).
YOU WILL NEVER SEE THEM SWITCH SIDES.
Do the math. IMPEACH Obama if you can (again you can’t) or get a new president in two years if you can’t (again, it won’t happen – too many people getting ‘free stuff’.
That leaves only one solution and NO ONE has the guts to say it. Last guy that did ‘accidentally raised and army:
Wheeeeee! A 2nd Amendment solution. You can water the tree of liberty with blood. You can create your very own Afghanistan right here in the USA. You will finally find a use for that Bushmaster you bought. You could even wear your body armor for real, instead of prancing around WalMart in it. I am sure the Russians and the Chinese would happily sit back and watch the show.
Be careful for what you wish.

It came to me
That every time
I lose a dog
they take a piece
of my heart with them,
and every new dog
who comes into my life
gifts me with a piece
of their heart.
If I live long enough
all the components of
my heart will be dog,
and I will become
as generous and
loving as they are.
Also the series "Revolution" and the old "Snake Pliskin" movies.

A RATTLESNAKE IN THE LIVING ROOM ENDS ALL DISCUSSION OF ANIMAL RIGHTS
 October 19, 2014 at 1:50pm
Apparently the LEO KNOWLEDGE BASE is very LOW with people on this website.
It’s called ‘PROFESSIONAL COURTESY’ in LEO RANKS.
The thing is, if you are an officer, chances are high you could find yourself in a bad situation (generally means some kind of gun fire) and when you call for HELP on your radio, you want EVERY ONE who is available and can HEAR your call to come running.
If you pulled them over and GAVE THEM A TICKET RECENTLY? That LEO probably has no interest in HELPING YOU in your time of ‘need’ – what ever your need is at that moment.
OH, and when they pull someone over who they didn’t know was a cop, said officers pulls out his wallet when ID is requested and the first thing the officer requesting ID sees is either the badge or the LEO’s official ID.
What people don't get, is that many times officers are driving to calls that need them to be there quick, but aren't approved code. The same people here b!tching that cops drive too fast, confirming to them that cops are above the law, are the same people that will b!tch and moan when they take too long to get to their house when they call 911, confirming to them that cops are lazy and don't care. Some people will b!tch no matter what.

Do any of you remember the ‘Dixie Chicks’
That’s because they were as stupid as THIS whack job.
What if Cannabis Oil Cured Cancer?
As more stories like Alysa Erwin’s become known, maybe medicinal marijuana will finally become formal protocol.

The Erwin family after Alysa’s diognosis
IN JANUARY 2011, then-14-year-old Alysa Erwin began having intense, debilitating headaches. By that spring she was diagnosed with Grade 3 Anaplastic Astrocytoma — brain cancer — at University of Michigan Medical Center.
According to information at mdguidelines.com, “Individuals with grade 3 astrocytoma have a median survival time of 18 months with treatment (radiation and chemotherapy). … Even with aggressive treatment, astrocytomas of all types tend to recur, making the prognosis generally poor.”
Alysa’s tumors were spread throughout her brain like ivy or a spider web. There was no local tumor that could be targeted for radiation. The Erwins, including Alysa’s parents Carly and David, returned to their northern Lower Peninsula home with five days worth of Temedor, an oral chemotherapy pill, to begin treatment.
“We were told she could live 18 months to two years on chemo,” says Carly. “We thought that was a death sentence to her.”
Still, seemingly without options, the Erwins figured they would give the chemotherapy a try.
“She was deathly sick,” says Carly of her daughter after taking the Temedor.
Carly was bedridde

I got this same sentiment from a friend of mine – This person went on and on about how it should be common sense to not give a 9 year old girl an Uzi to shoot. Here is my response to that person…
“COMMON SENSE” is so rare, it’s a SUPER POWER NOW.
And as sad a story as this is, it’s all on the instructor. He KNEW how the gun ‘rises’ when not held tightly (say, as a little girl would hold it). It’s a sad comment, but truly, this is all on the instructor.
Having been an NRA certified instructor for 10 years, the last thing you want to do is place a loaded weapon in the hands of an inexperienced shooter and then stand to the side of them as they pull the trigger. If you are going to stand near them, you stand RIGHT BEHIND THEM, so you can grab the weapon from them in cases like this. He was standing off to one side. VERY STUPID.
What can you give your 86 year old WWII Veteran father? He had never been in a parade. So I ‘gave’ him the Denver 2010 Veterans Day Parade. I collect military vehicles and the club I was a member of in Denver was proud to put him in the Chaplin’s jeep. We also delivered numerous Colorado National Guard officers to the reviewing stand. When they got out of the jeep, they took my Dad up on the reviewing stand with them. He was a ROCK STAR for one day.
That is my wife and my mom who video taped the event. They even yelled at him “HEY BOB” as he rolled past. He STILL remembers that day.

You apparently did not look at their menu.
This isn’t Chuck-E-Cheese, where the WHOLE FAMILY can eat for like $30.
If I want to go to a restaurant and drop $150/$200 (w/tip) BY MYSELF, if my wife went that price would double.
WE LIKE to eat good food at NICE QUIET restaurants. And we go out more than I care to admit.
But NO FAMILY OF SIX, FOUR OF THEM CHILDREN, would ever drop $100 or more PER DINER.
I have been out with two other couples before and we HAVE DROPPED almost $1200 w/tip at a very expensive restaurant. And there was NOT one screaming child in sight.
We do not go to high end restaurants every day, but when I do choose to drop that kind of money, I want a quiet place to eat and be served by a waiter who KNOWS HIS menu and what it should look and taste like.
You won’t bet that at McDonalds.

I saw a study that says the BABY BOOMERS have 35x more money and assets as someone who is 30.
So yes, we DO deserve a place to go eat our EXPENSIVE MEAL in peace.
This is a trend that will become popular until all the Boomers are dead – about forty years from now.
Until then, all you youngster, take your screaming children to CHUCK-E-CHEESE. They have games and the kids would be much happier.
 July 30, 2014 at 10:20am
I’m sorry, but I call BS on a FAMILY OF SIX – four of whom are under 12 will EVER SPEND $200 in this economy.
Take your loud, hyperactive children to a fast food restaurant. That’s where they will ‘fit in’ and be the happiest.
Why is it that parents think they have the right to RUIN every one else dining experience?
If there was discipline in those families, it would not have ever happened. But today’s parents think their screaming children are ‘cute’, and NOT the horrendous monsters they are.
As the Baby Boomers get older, guess what? WE DON’T WANT to see your uncontrolled child wrecking havoc on OUR DINING EXPERIENCE. There are all sorts of restaurants that cater to YOU.
GO EAT THERE!
PLEASE GO EAT THERE and allow us grown ups to enjoy our selves without having to hear YOUR PARENTING PROBLEMS.

So that makes it OK with you?
Apparently you did NOT read the rest of the article because it says these illegals are OVERWHELMING THEIR SYSTEM.
That’s CLASSIC CLOWARD – PIVEN – GET IT?

Adult Illegal Immigrants Posing as Children To Enroll in High School
Adult illegal immigrants posing as unaccompanied alien children appear to be attempting to enroll at public high schools, city officials in Lynn, Mass., tell National Review Online.
“Some of them have had gray hair and they’re telling you that they’re 17 years old and they have no documentation,” Jamie Cerulli, the Lynn mayor’s chief of staff, tells NRO. “If my children went to the public schools, I’d be very uncomfortable with all of these unaccompanied minors [that] are placed in the ninth grade.”
Admission of all foreign students — illegal immigrants, refugees, and foreign nationals — has increased by more than 500 students since the 2010–2011 school year, Catherine Latham, the city’s superintendent of schools, tells NRO. Last school year, nearly 250 students arrived from Guatemala, including 126 enrolled in the ninth grade.
The majority of unaccompanied Guatemalan children arriving in the city hail from the city of San Marcos, Latham says, and are drawn by Lynn’s large Guatemalan population.
NRO has obtained Department of Health and Human Services documents and images of two unaccompanied aliens living in Lynn that appear to challenge the notion that the age information listened for these “children” on their documents is accurate.
FMJ, the highest grade school equivalent required in these countries these people are coming from is the 8th grade. Therefore, when they say they are ninth graders they are telling the truth, regardless of their age!

Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?
Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?
Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?
Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?
Have you shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout?
Have you seen a Muslim Candy Stripier?The answer is no.
Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? No they were Native American Indians.
Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry, no.
Can you show me one Muslim signature on the: United States Constitution?
Declaration of Independence ?
Bill of Rights? Didn’t think so.
Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England ? No.
Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ? No.
Where were Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage era? Not here.
Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present.
Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler.
Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims.
The FED is not a fourth branch of government. It IS the government, since 1913.
Control the money and you control the nation.
It’s monopoly money now, nothing to back it up but the barrel of a gun and the money cartel is pleased as punch that YOUR dollars are shrinking in purchasing power while THEY reap the profits.
Let me clear a couple of things up for you.
1 How much of money is PHYSICAL money? 8% of our money is actual physical money – and that’s world wide. 92% of all money is DIGITAL – ie a digit in some computer someplace.
2 Guess who creates MOST OF THE MONEY USED? People who issue credit cards. Be they banks or stores, THEY ARE CREATING MONEY OUT OF THIN AIR- LITERALLY. Nothing to base it on. You PROMISE to pay it back? And you get a piece of plastic that you can take to places and they will GIVE YOU STUFF and all you have to do is PROMISE to give them some ‘digits’ from some account. Not hard currency, but digital money.
So tell me again, WHO CONTROLS THIS COUNTRY. FOLKS LIKE US. I’m assuming you all have at least two or three credit cards, RIGHT?
