    Thanks for the heads up. I'll be all over that once it is launched.

            This guy's not on the right, but I know for a fact he's a gun owner:

              When I got my CCW, it was not an easy process(early 90s). Now that things are much easier, I see on a regular basis how careless some of these people are. You would think they are carrying a screwdriver instead of a firearm. It is amazing to me how many people want to come and show off the gun they are carrying. Most of those do so without ever removing the magazine, or the bullet in the chamber. Some of those also do so while touching the trigger. One of those has shot himself not long after.


              An example of one of the teachers from Parkland that supported arming the teachers becoming incredibly careless with his firearm. He did not realize he had left it until he heard it discharged where he left it.



              The Parkland teacher left the weapon in a cubicle where a homeless man found it and fired it.

                Roughly 100 million gun owners in the country, you found one case.


                Or let me put it this way, there are roughly 2000 unintentional shootings a year (not sure if fatal) and there are 3500 accidental drownings, POOL CONTROL!!!

                  Nothing any of us will say will make a dent in to those that are hell bent in taking our rights away and falsely spewing misinformation and or lack of common sense.

                  I had an argument with an anti-gunner and I felt like I was talking to a brick wall.

                      I often feel the same way when trying to have a conversation to a staunch pro gunner(hmm, anti-gunner?), especially the last bit.

                      I own guns, and I did legally sell them. I am not in favor of banning guns. I am one of those that see problems with the way things are and I am willing to have a conversation about how things can be changed. Most pro gun people are just holding out to keep the status quo, and not bringing anything meaningful to the conversation. By being a participant in the conversation, I am hoping to bring sane changes to the way things are.

                          You say that however you have yet to make any workable proposals. Also not sure about others but I'm not OK with the status quo I want state laws brought in line with the Constitution, carry reciprocity would be a nice start and dismantling idiotic laws such as NYC that requires me to prove that I have a credible threat to carry a weapon.

                              More brilliant decisions from people who totally aren't virtue signaling. Buy tons of weapons, inflating the profits of gun manufactures, and then destroy the weapons to show the anti-gun side how virtuous you are. Good job Dicks. Keep it up, I'm sure the gun manufacturers won't complain if you want to double down and do it again. Keep giving them large sums of money in order to drive your own business into the ground. Truly genius.

                                  Jesus, that's a damn butter knife.

                                  I feel for the normal citizen in the UK. I mean fucking seriously, they (law makers and law enforcement) are off their rocker there with this shit. If we don't stand up for our constitution here that is our future. Knife bans. I've got dozens of blades and a few swords, and I won't give em up. Neither will I give up my firearms.

                                    This is exactly why I am always so resistant to any kind of restrictions, you already can't walk around with a knife in NYC, hell my buddy got bitched at by NYPD for a Leatherman multitool and he was like "dude really?" Despite what we are being told, the end goal is dismantling 2A completely, we can see the slippery slope in some states already.

                                      Are you serious? He was harassed because he had a Leatherman multitool? And knives are banned in NYC? For fucks sake...

                                      And I agree about the ultimate goal being to erode the 2A and in the end all of our rights.

                                        Knives aren't so much banned as there are certain constraints on what you can carry, in theory it only affects things like switchblades, balisongs, etc... For example a spring assisted knife is illegal, anything over 4" is illegal, in reality they can harass you for anything. In terms of what happened to my friend, they do random bag searches for getting on the subway in some stations* and they found it in his bag and gave him shit for it.

                                        *Funnily enough it's only on entry into subway and only on some stations in Manhattan, so if you wanted to blow up say Grand Central, you could get on at like my stop and just transfer to any of the trains that go there.
