Considering the FBI's long and rich history of fascism and acting against the US Bill of Rights (starting with Hoover, and going downhill from there), not to mention the NSA's rampant (and blatantly illegal) domestic spying....

I'll damn well act against their silly rules and regulations any well damn time I feel like it.

Every American should be encrypting the hell out of anything they own, and demanding that companies do likewise with their products and services. The sooner we render the Gestapo and Stasi impotent, the better.

Aol has always been pretty spammy, but they've gotten out of control lately, and as usual, ignoring the problem.

I lost patience with them years ago, and started firewalling any netblock from them that was causing problems.

Solved a lot of problems, and since no one in their right mind uses them anymore, I'm not too worried about blocking anything legit.

my guess, the one second rule is "no more then 1 shot fired per second"

Many inexperienced shooters try to fire too quickly (and not fully in control), and hit things they shouldnt, like target holders, other peoples targets, etc.

Personally I hate rules like that, as it interferes with many of my drills, but I'm also a competition handgun shooter, so I've got a little more experience with controlled double taps, Mozambique drills, etc, compared to the average joe.

Move to California or NJ or CT or NY or MA, and you can enjoy your false sense of security.

BTW, REAL assault weapons are almost impossible to get due to NFA of 1934 and Hughes of 86. What you're so terrified of are rifles that only LOOK like assault rifles. But considering the stupidity of your statement, I highly doubt you have the IQ to understand the difference.

How many QA engineers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? 3: 1 to screw it in and 2 to say "I told you so" when it doesn't work.
