Some sharp eyed folks there. I’m more concerned about the blatant mishandling and use of firearms in the movie industry. Things like dropping the mag from an autoloader, then acting on screen as if it’s safe, have caused numerous incidents in the real world.
On point! My pet peeve is the omnipresent fingers-on-the-triggers, especially when the characters are NOT engaging.
My pet peeve is the way they throw away a perfectly good working high dollar firearm in movies because it ran out of ammo and became totally useless for future use and there are no bullets left in the world for it.Also irks me when you see an actor put the muzzle of his gun in the dirt.

LibertarianSocialist, just how in he!! can you call yourself a Libertarian and Socialist? Simply incompatible. Libertarians believe in the individual – Socialists believe in the collective.

@Pantheraxe, apparently you know nothing of California’s gun laws. Granted, Cal has some heavy handed gun laws, but not all are bad. Take a CCW class and you will learn that if someone, other than a relative or roommate, breaks into your domicile it’s not illegal to shoot them, in some cases whether they’re armed or not. You are no obligated to retreat in, or from, your home.
The one downside in California, we’ve got no protection from a civil suit, after we’ve terminated the dirt-bag, so it’s best to have a good homeowner’s policy. (Some cover this possibility.)

I don’t mind spending a little more for a quality item while supporting small American businesses, but when an item is priced two to three times higher, on the Blaze Marketplace than many others, I’ll spend my dollars elsewhere thank you.
Shoot that's sad, but the little log sets are comparable to Lincoln Logs which (if not less in some cases) and I'd rather have the American ones. Not only are Lincoln Logs made in China now but they aren't even wood anymore.

Neil is obviously a New York liberal, but does defend conservatives for their government spending on science.
Seriously? Because this moron NEVER would've done that with a 1911!?!?
Face it. Any handgun in that man's hands would've resulted in the same outcome. Example (cuz you'll probably bring it up) Colt 1911 - external safety AND it has to be "cocked" before firing (single action)... You think he wouldn't already have it cocked? You think it wouldn't already be OFF safe at that point?
You don't like Glocks? that's fine, but don't turn attention away from the idiot's actions or the Department's lack of training because you don't like the brand name.
I hate S&W but their guns DON'T cause any accidents or incidents (short of catastrophic malfunctions). It's the buffoons wielding them.

I would have stopped him forever – or, at the very least, neutered that predator. Once he gets out of jail, and we know he eventually will, statistics tell us he’ll do it again. :-(
I can't argue with what you said. At least this guy will remember this beating everytime he gets the urge, and he will remember it much more vividly than whatever he hears from counselors in his journey through the so called justice system. Whether that is enough to reform him or not I can not say, but I will hope against the odds that it is.

Wrong! If Israel disappeared tomorrow those folks would soon find someone else to hate. Their idiot superstition predisposes them to hate.
Sounds an awful lot like, NO, exactly like, the Liberal, Progressive, Communist Democrat "useful idiot" right here in America doesn't it? I mean finding someone to hate...

These cops, and I suspect many others, need a class in remedial law. The SCOTUS ruled that’s it’s perfectly legal for We the People to record authorities in action, as long as We the People are not interfering. Obviously, recording from one’s porch is far from interfering.

Beautiful story. Made my monitor all fuzzy.

“…We immediately fled, and I went to alert the security forces, but they arrived half an hour late.”
What? You can drive across nearly the entire country in 30-minutes. Where the heck was security?
I have to ask; in the ‘very’ long view of humanity, the next several thousand years, would humanity be better off if all families of two or more children were paid to trade at least one of their kids to another country for a year or three?
Communication between people minimizes mistrust and misunderstandings – Isolation does precisely the opposite. Do I want my country of the west to become another Europe or China? No, and certainly not another Middle East. But do I want humanity to progress to the stars one day? Emphatically YES! I doubt we’ll ever make it if we keep warring with each other, so we may be better off, in the very long run, by homogenizing.
I fully realize many on this board don’t want to hear this but… Superstitious beliefs seem to be the pivot point around which nearly all our current troubles revolve. I suspect that the kid who said, “I’m not a terrorist just a Muslim”, will be far less inclined to kill us after his stint in America.
Maybe it’s time for a true ‘United’ Nations, not of bureaucrats but of children. A few billion dollars each year spent to transport children around the globe might be money well spent in the long run.
How well did "homogenizing" work out for the people building the tower of babel?
We don't need another united nations. The current one is evil and should be kicked out of our sovereign nation.
Warren Beaty sai.d it perfectly in a movie, "The human race will never be at peace until the total deconstruction of the races has been accomplished. In other words everybody screws everybody until there's one race.". The entire wold has to be one race before it can evolve.

California is actually two states. Rural California – full of good American ranchers and farmers, where the Sheriffs issue concealed carry permits to all us good folks. And big city Kalifornia – full of crazies, communists, and politicians who, probably for good reason, can’t trust their subjects with anything more dangerous than a slingshot.
Please don’t lump us all in the same pile. I’m willing to bet there isn’t a large city, in any state, that’s not top heavy with the same lunatics as big city Kalifornia.

When will the MSM, and other Islamic apologists, realize that there are very few, if any, moderate Muslims? This Islamic superstition needs to be wiped from the face of the earth.
Hi Shoot. How's things over at Patriots ? I haven't been there since right before OAS started.
I have a Muslim friend I met at work, and he told me that he is one of the rare ones that aren't extremists. When I asked what he thought of the apologists and if he could be one of them he replied "Hell no. Those people make me sick. Almost all people in (his hometown, I forgot what it's called) are mad. Very crazy and sick in the head." I wish there were more that had his mindset. :(
no such thing as a moderate muslim. They all believe the same thing, some are just lazy.

Cultivate this one simple habit, and ALWAYS do it, even when home alone, and no one can pull a fast one on you.
Clear your shooter, and Clear it AGAIN, if you set it down – even for one second. ALWAYS assume that all unattended firearms will reload themselves.
You can’t wear out a gun by clearing it too often.

Edward Klein is turd polish for the witch’s 2016 run.
Bingo! I'm thinking the exact same cos it's her State Dept. iced the FBI as the normal investigator in Benghazi and almost everything. Notice them ALL now " blaming" just Obama for everything. See shoebat.com to see the Islamo video maker as another FBI " informant" false flag! Yep, they concocted everything from the beginning to kidnap/trade Stevens for the blind shiek. She just met with Obama about Iraq and our embassy and watch it become another Hostage Crisis with " imminent danger" just like Bergdhal to trade for most all of Gitmo! It's all the same Global Fast and Furious creating " fake" refugees to storm the borders per So Alinsky/Agenda 21!
It would be interesting to know who Klein's sources are ?
It's easy to figure out-
some Clinton loyalist who is working on 'Hilderbeest's" presidential campaign,
someone who, on behalf of Bill & Hill
will drop Obama's knickers,
expose his wimpy butterballs,
spill all the beans on his failed leadership
& then wipe the sweat off Hil-LIAR-y's azz with them-
ALL to magnify Obama's impotence,
& tout Clinton's inability to act the way she wanted
because she was pressured into taking the Commander's orders....
SINK or SAIL !
Now, to avoid sinking into the Spinghazi bood pool,
her henchmen are carrying out their duties-
sounds a lot like Clinton loyalist Lanny Davis
or someone similar has whispered
all of Obama's dastardly misdeeds into the author's ear
to disinfect Hillary from the toxicity at the White House.
It's the way the Clintons roll, it's their revenge-
political survival by all means,
it was always part of the plan,
why do you think she stepped down as Sec.of State ?
They needed time to get all their political ducks in order,
time for their "sources" to take care of their dirty business,
brief a best selling author on all the murky details
so he can get it out before she confirms her presidential ambition.
Clear her name & free her from all the mess by exposing Obama...
Goody-Two-Shoes vs. Goon Obama.
They are ALL power whores & pimps looking out for themselves.
Go to hell !
Our country deserves better !

I’d prefer the cheaper and more stealthy method of concealed weapons for ‘some’ of the teachers, but the general public seems to be more sympathetic with the idea of armed police officers in the schools. To that end the comments by reconmarine0321, in the above article, come close but his/her calculations seem to be off a bit. His/her 3-cops P/180-day school year, would cost about $43-billion for about 100K schools. By most estimates our foreign aid costs are about $38-billon P/year total.
I’d suggest the three same cops P/school at $100K salary each, for a cost of $30-billion P/Yr. A little less than our total foreign aid, but what’s more important, our children or some far-off unappreciative country? Heck, we still give China millions in foreign aid!

As the ignorant ‘kids’ have texted: “OMG – This young girl is holding a machinegun!”
No, it’s a nice, but smaller caliber than I’d prefer, simple M-15 semi-automatic rifle. No different than dozens of hunting rifles – just ‘nasty’ black in color. And in my humble opinion, not worth hunting anything larger than poodles with.
As an old man, I know nothing of this Jessa Duggar person, but if she’s half competent with what she’s holding, I’d be happy to share a range with her, and tempt her to shoot something a little more worthy. ;)
