  1. That is very nice. Wish I was closer. I might have to copy that design.
  2. We've been at war for so many years and few of us are asked to sacrifice anything let alone put ourselves in danger while there are those who are in constant peril. Prayers for those in harms way.
  3. Ms. Goeser is very brave for coming forward and talking about her difficulties and the dangers of red flag laws.
  4. Hey GR, I saw the pictures you posted. Being new to SASS I've still got a lot of stuff I need for competition so I better pass and put my money into things I need rather than things I want. Hope the saddles all go to a good home. Thanks
  5. That's true. You can't use deadly force. However under Florida law, “defense of property” is an affirmative defense that justifies the use of non-deadly force to protect a person's land, home, vehicle, or other personal property. Florida does not recognize a right to use deadly force in the protection of property interests alone. Of course that is a very slippery slope which I would hope to never go down.
  6. Our local range is owned (at least he thinks he owes it) by a cat named Bandit. He mainly supervises the office and the hundred yard rifle range. I've never even seen him flinch even when folks are shooting rifles that make the ground shake. God help anyone that ever hurts that cat. He has two thousand friends that own guns and know how to shoot, and I'm one of them. Bandit is a hundred percent pro-gun. BTW, in Florida you have a right to shoot someone to protect your property. I've always been glad of that, because if I saw anyone hurting one of my animals I don't think I could stop myself from ending the threat to them.
  7. And I would hope the lawmakers would resign if they can't uphold the constitution of the United States which they were sworn to uphold. Maybe the national guard should be called out to remove them and the governor from the office. Just sayin'
  8. As a newbie I was glad to see the Team Sass section on the forum. I didn't know if SASS members would take the threat that we're under seriously since SASS guns are not the usual targets of the anti-gunners. I appreciate what you are doing and hope to contribute to the effort. We either fight together or go down together. I believe that there are two kinds of Fudds - gun Fudds who believe that since their guns aren't threatened they don't have a dog in the fight and state Fudds who believe that since their state is generous with gun rights than they don't care about all the other people who are living under repressive state regimes. Living in Florida I will admit that I used to be a state Fudd and thought that it was a problem that only affected people in states like California, New Jersey and Massachusetts. A few years ago I had my eyes opened, and I think all of us can admit now that the disease is spreading. We even see it creeping into the southern states.
  9. In that case do whatever you can to bear bait them into attacking your stronghold. You have a chance defending a position against superior numbers. If that means you have to kill the ones who came across under the flag of truce in order to get the others mad enough to attack you so be it. To paraphrase Dutch from the Wild Bunch - it's who you gave your word to that counts.
  10. Question - Is it paper money or something like gold? If it's paper money you have a bargaining chip. You tell them that if at any point you and your friend feel like it is hopeless you will burn all of the money. This would also give you the opportunity of trying to cut out part of the bad guys. For instance in the parley you could offer to cut the two guys you're talking to in on the money if they help you get rid of the other bad guys and help you get out of the fix you're in.
  11. I'd be interested in the saddles and headstalls and any other usable horse equipment. If you could send me pics that would be great. Cheers
  12. From what I've read a lot of the focus on Monday was on whether the case was moot or not since NYC had changed the law already. Which seems odd to me since SCOTUS had decided to go ahead and hear the case which would suggest that they didn't think the case was moot. This law was particularly stupid. We can hope that reason prevails, and they deal a serious blow to some of the stupidest anti gun laws. That's what a lot of the "reasonable gun control" people don't understand. Many of the laws are stupid and useless even if you believe in some form of gun control. The people passing the laws are often ignorant or determinedly anti-gun. Side note - we should call gun rights what they - civil rights. The right of every person to defend themselves is as basic as their right to drink from any public water fountain.
  13. I'd say we have a semi functioning legal system. The rights of citizens in some states are not as well protected as those who live in other states. I'm very fortunate to live in a state which respects 2a rights. You are absolutely right that we need to contribute to the judicial and political battles taking place throughout the country. Standing back and letting others do the work is how we will all lose our rights.
  14. When the insanity is coming as far south as Virginia times are getting bad. At some point we are all going to have to decide where the line in the sand is. We'll also need to figure out what we are going to do when they cross that line.
