  1. Part of me says to this, I don't think so. They are more emboldened to crush the 1A and 2A parts of the Constitution's BoRs than they ever have been. But the other part of me says it's easier to go after guns then to openly continue to adopt policies of abortion and immediate post birth baby murder. The left figures by punishing gun owners they are punishing Trump supporters and they are going to punish everyone they can for Trump beating HRC in 2016. It's all about punitive damages right now, damn the consequences.
  2. Fairfax County Virginia 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County Speech: Civil War This guy nails it.
  3. This is no longer a war on guns. It is a war on freedom and law abiding citizens.
  4. If I remember my movies correctly this was even depicted in the Civil War movie The Blue and the Gray.
  5. Justice Scalia Made Clear the Second Amendment and Heller Prohibit “Assault Weapon” Bans
  6. Hardpan, Thank you for opening this discussion. The Team SASS page contains so much useful pro 2nd amendment information it would take months to digest, but is worth the effort. Anyone who enjoys firearm sports, freedom, law, the founding principles of this country, the notion of self preservation...should be taking notice of the threat against the 2nd Amendment in this country. This threat continues daily against individual liberties and freedoms. This is a topic that should not be ignored. Knowledge... it can be useful.
  7. Maybe technically it belongs in Team SSAS but as having recently been mentioned Team SASS rarely gets visited and most of the topics there are not read by supposedly very pro gun people on this board. I think this topic needs to remain right where it is. Firearms and Pro 2A advocacy of any discipline belongs to all of us and should not be quarantined to a corner rendering this infomation less useful, CAS people and otherwise.
  8. It's probably easier not to drink when you don't have a job you don't like to go to every day. I foresee me drinking much less when I retire.
  9. Tequila Chase, you make excellent points. To wit, I have several friends who have missed out on a tremendous amount of their family life over the decades because they always claim they "have" to work. They "have" to pick up that overtime... Any and every excuse to justify more time spent at work and less time with the family for the wrong reasons. Now these guys are all close to 60 years old and they lament that they did not get to see their kids grow up or are missing out on their grand kids' early years. All because they still use the excuse they "have" to work when indeed not a one of them has ever needed the extra money. You should see their heads spin when I ask them who's going to spend all their money for them when they're gone.
  10. Lately "rich" and "poor" have been used as labels to promote societal wealth-envy continuing to stir up radical politics. And by lately I mean this started in January, 2009. Plenty of ways to define rich. Unfortunately too many people use the word monetarily to define what they don't have, can't have or want unobtainably. I agree with the above sentiment that just living in this country makes us richer individually than most if not all of the rest of the world. We tend to take these blessings for granted today and too many people have lost track of what opportunity, freedom and individual accountibility mean and can do for the individual. I would not want to live anywhere else in the world. I will never have a bank account like Bill Gates or Warren Buffet do but that's not what is important to me. There are plenty of things much more important than monetary valuation in this world.
  11. Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! I live in the Wichita area and my cowboy travels take me to Chapman, Lenexa, and South into Oklahoma for monthlies. Lots and lots of great cowboy folks 'round these parts. Look forward to meeting you.
  12. Yup. I worked with 3 different people who all played the bankruptcy game to the hilt. Don't get me started on that as I don't have enough blood pressure medication to thwart my head exploding.
  13. I can think of too many occasions where your non dominant or off hand can be doing, needs to be doing something other than racking the slide on an empty chamber Glock to make that practice workable at the moment you need a handgun for self defense. Always carry chambered. Always carry in a holster that allows for total trigger guard coverage. Always keep your finger off the trigger until you're gun is on target and you're ready to shoot. Always reholster slowly and deliberately to avoid doing something stupid and dangerous while putting your gun away.
  14. I'd be curious as to just how a priest and a stripper met.
  15. Kinda how I feel about the Lee Child and Stephen Hunter books. I'll certainly check out Elmore Leonard. Thanks for the suggestion! I've been needing to discover another western author.
  16. And this judge would be wrong. Emotions evoking subjectivity never trump Constitutional freedom.
  17. I have a friend who always complains he never has enough money. He makes good money, works long hours for it, has no debt, is healthy, never spends frivolously, etc... he is truely better off than probably 95% of the world's population. He is never happy. He makes the sad mistake of not living in reality. He is constantly trying to compare what he doesn't have to what people who are billionaires do have. He will eventually work himself to death, bitter he does not have more, his entire life wasted on the faulty idea of what wealth means to him.
