    They’re wild animals… that’s all you need to know.

    Push any anti-gunner long enough and they will eventually show their true colors. There are no moderates in their camp. They fall into one of either groups. A) ‘freedom for me but not for thee’ where they want the guns but no one else can have one …or… B) complete disarmament for everyone except the government. (you could argue you have an extreme few who fall into category C who want to abolish all firearms for everyone even the government but they are certifiably insane if you ask me and need medication)

    I get a kick out of people like zapparules when they start popping off about how we can’t defend against tanks and jets and the sort with our little hunting rifles. These people know nothing of warfare. Mighty empires, who were militarily superior to their enemies, have been brought to their knees by barbarians using nothing more than sticks and stones on several occasions throughout human history.

    Does that mean we’re going to stand on a firing line with a Remington 12ga loaded with bird shot against a tank? Heck no. But it sure doesn’t stop a person from using that same Remington 12ga in other more dangerous ways to get our point across. In other words, it’s all in how you use your weapons and tactics.

    Just du it!

    It would have been a lot faster to carve into the car too… ;)

    “The suspect, Vester Lee Flanagan, is said to be a disgruntled former WDBJ employee.”

    Didn’t want to say it until it was confirmed but I was either thinking disgruntled employee or jealous husband/boyfriend thinking reporter and cameraman were having an affair from the start. Why? It didn’t seem like a random act of violence but a specific targeted act when I watched the video.

    “Who cares if supporting Trump will hand the election to the Democrats.”

    Take that line and shove it! I’m tired of that line. We’ve had it fed to use for I can’t remember how long now and it’s old. I peddled it and championed it in ’08 and ’12 to get folks to vote for McCain and Romney even though I didn’t like either of them. I did it again during the midterms and look what it got us. NOTHING!

    Screw the GOP! I refuse to vote for a Democrat but I won’t tote the GOP party line anymore either. Am I angry? You bet I am. I’ll vote for whoever the heck I dang well please even if it doesn’t help ‘the party’ as they say. -_-

    UnderstandBothSides:
    Correction, no one has been successful in taking our guns yet but they have been trying for a very long time with each firearm ban and each new law or regulation. The only thing that stops them are people like us who push back and stand firm against it.

    A person who is anti-gun falls into two categories; A) freedom for me but not for thee, and, B) all firearms should be banned from private ownership. There is no middle ground with these people. If you press a person who is in favor of gun regulations hard enough, debate or poke holes in their logic long enough, they will always show their true colors in the end. (I’ve been debating these people for decades and it’s always the same) In the end it ALWAYS comes down to one of those two choices for society in their minds.

    So you’re wrong. If the government could abolish the 2nd Amendment tomorrow morning it would be gone in a flash. Members from both sides would do it in the name of ‘safety’ and then they really would come for our guns.

    Pretty neat. Think I’ll just make my own in the shop one of these weekends. Be a fun little project. ;)

    I love the wood look on the one in the article (woodworker here) but I have to admit the one in your link is much more practical! Thanks for the link. Definitely will have to check it out. :)

    People like DaveInFla are reckless and irresponsible in my opinion.

    It has nothing to do with paranoia or doomsday scenarios Dave. Let me tell you a little story. About a 15 years ago my wife and I found ourselves in a tight spot. My entire plant was laid off suddenly one day and I found myself out of work. The place just went under. No paycheck or nothing. Just see ya folks later and get out off the property or we call the cops on you sort of thing. (that all got sorted later but it was months later) My wife’s income (working as a daycare provider from our home) had dried up a week prior due to the kids growing up and moving on to school. So there we were, in our mid 20s living paycheck to paycheck with, literally, a few slices of bread on the counter and a can of corn in the pantry. (possibly some ketchup in the fridge) It was supposed to be payday that day so it was supposed to be grocery shopping day that night. But no paycheck meant no food. So what now? I had a good record and landed a job within 48 hours but I couldn’t get an advance on my check so that meant no food for two weeks. We had to beg family and friends for food. I swore I would never put my family in that position again. SO, it’s NOT paranoia to be prepared Dave! It just makes sense. We have enough short term supplies on hand for 1-3 weeks at all times and enough long term stored for 1-3 months at all times. I’ll never beg again if I can help it. But if you want to put your family in that position then that’s your choice.

    Wait… what? That was honestly the dumbest thing I’ve watched since as far back as I can remember. My brain actually hurts trying to think of something more idiotic than this. Wow.

  • [6] August 24, 2015 at 11:01am

    TBIR; in this instance I have to agree. We often chide the left for capitalizing on tragic events and spinning that event for political gain. But I think sometimes folks forget that both sides do it.

    As much as I dislike Obama this isn’t Obama’s fault. This is just one deranged person who decided to take the life of another person. That’s all. No one else is to blame for it.

    shagstar; Foo Fighters are one of the few surviving 90s rock/alternative/grunge bands still around today. The band was founded by Dave Grohl, lead singer/guitarist of the Foo Fighters. He is the former drummer of Nirvana. (you might of heard of them, they were hugely popular in the 90s up until their lead singer, Kurt Cobain killed himself) Never been a huge fan of them myself but I’ve always had respect for their longevity. Not a lot of big Seattle scene grunge bands stuck together from that decade.

    The Foo Fighters and Westboro Baptist have a long history of being at odds with one another. This isn’t the first time FF has counter protested them. (I think their back and forth is quite funny)

    This is how crusades are born… perhaps it’s time for another one.

    Too soon? Too insensitive? Too far? Perhaps. I don’t know. On one hand I say let them keep that desolate sandbox of a hell hole and rot over there as far as I’m concerned. On the other this pisses me off.

    The moderators here can choose to remove that if they deem to (I won’t hold it against you if you decide to) but consider this; you don’t see Catholics unearthing long dead Muslim Imams or revered persons of their faith and taking bulldozers to their mosques do you? No, you don’t. We’re supposed to respect them? Respect their faith? Screw them. Screw their faith.

    One can only WISH that will happen! But in all honesty I see it being someone out of nowhere that just sweeps in and takes it. Like Bernie Sanders or even Joe Biden. Heck I still don’t rule out an Elizabeth Warren run at this point. I know she swears she isn’t running but we all know that’s a load of bull. She’s going to run someday. She’s just waiting for the opportune time. Trust me, Hillary tanking right now is the opportune time for these piranha’s to strike. There’s real blood in the water and they are going crazy.

  • [3] August 22, 2015 at 6:43pm

    I’m telling ya folks. I’ve been saying it for months now. Hillary will not be the Democrat candidate. Just like in ’08 someone will swoop in and steal the nomination right out from under her. My biggest worry is that the GOP has spent SO much time preparing to fight Hillary in ’16 that they will be unprepared for another dark horse candidate and they’ll throw the election again. Guess we’ll see…

    Yep, first things I noticed. You’d think if they have this many accidents at this location with trucks hitting a low bridge than the warning signs are working properly. I used to drive OTR here in the US and I’ve seen plenty of low bridges with bright catchy signs ON THE BRIDGE in big giant letters that posted that it was a low bridge with the height measurements on it. I blame the owner of the bridge just as much as the driver in this instance if all they are doing is putting a crappy little sign up like that.
