we had armed cops in my high schools back in the 80s and we didnt think twice about it. They spent half their time busting kids dealing drugs at the school. Having armed cops at the school wont have the sort of impact you think it will. I would rather see an armed cop at the school as his post than seing the armed cop at every goddamn movie theater, not because of a shooting, but because we have to protect the greedy ass MPAA from the highly dangerous video camera in the audience. We give more of a shit about pirating movies that having cops back at the schools like they were for decades before.
so why do you need more gun laws then? you already declared it a gun-free zone.. surely the criminals will stop once they read the sign posted on the door. My point is laws dont do shit to stop someone from committing a crime. They only serve to outline the punishment for breaking that law. When I was a kid we had armed security guards in the high schools and there were NEVER school shootings. IT wasn't until the dumb-ass liberal politicians thought that making schools a gun-free zone that this shit started happening. Ever heard the phrase 'like shooting fish in a barrel'? If i wanted to kill the most people with the least chance that someone could stop me I sure as hell would start down the list of places were law abiding people cant defend themselves.
no they are basically defined as a semi-automatic weapon that looks menacing to the hatchet-wound that wrote the legislation. Exactly how does a shroud around the barrel do ANYTHING to its functionality and suddenly make it an assault weapon? Or a pistol grip etc. Aside from magazine capacity its simply an issue of cosmetic appearance. Maybe we should judge her ability to function in society purely on her appearance too. The ugly ass bitch would be locked in her house if we held her ability to exist by the same standard.
and last i checked between the 1986 ban and the 1936 NFA, automatic weapons, SBRs, and SBSs are pretty much a non-issue. Not surprising that it didnt do anything to reduce the murder rate much like banning claw hammers wont do much to stop the roofing business. A new hammer will take its place. Ban all hammers and they will still find a way to drive a nail.
agreed.. how the hell does anyone expect protection from their third amendment without a second amendment? Its me shooting the soldier or cop in his damn sleep if he think he can make board in my house that keeps his ass outside.. and nothing more. Does anyone except the coolaid sipping liberals really believe that the government is benevolent and will always remain that way even unchecked?
werent these the same assholes that have wasted BILLIONS so far on false promises of bomb sniffing baggage scanners and backscatter devices that have been proven trivial to circumvent?
semi automatics do jam, and fully automatics do it more frequently. There are drills we have to practice to quickly clear these misfeeds. I carry a glock as my concealed carry but its a
and yet just last week a boy was saved from being mauled by THREE unleashed pit bull dogs. Since its a crime to own any handgun in DC, the hero is being prosecuted for owning a unlicensed handgun (as if there were a licensing option for him). No good deed goes unpunished is the montra of just about every liberally controlled city. They would rather see the child mauled to death but retain total control over their citizens than yeild a little bit of control to save a life.
so you're an AK fan eh?
i'd go one step further, having seen the fucktards in congress pass laws like obamacare only to try and exempt themselves. Make CONGRESS and the entire legislative/executive branches live with it for THREE YEARS as a trial run before any other asshole has to be forced to live with their shitty insight. Remember when Concord made all the engineers be passengers on the initial flight after grounding the entire fleet to fix a rash of mechanical failures? Congress should be forced to live by that same concept.
if they are closer than 7 feet you need to be in hand-to-hand combat. If you want to use a side-arm you need to be further away. I can not only shoot you with your own weapon if you were that close, but there is a really good chance i could do it with your finger still on the trigger holding it. There are enough accupoints that I could render your arm docile for a couple seconds. It only takes one or two to turn the table in a fight.
Simply using a better holster that requires more than a few seconds to remove would work better and be more reliable. I use a serpa blackhawk holster that has the finger release. It works perfectly for the wearer to depress while unholstering his weapon and even serves to put your finger in the right position along the slide of the gun. Its not as easy for someone trying to grab it and depress the button at the same time to do that. They would have to spend a lot of time practicing that exact situation to be able to do it before the cop could respond with a hand-to-hand counter. If they were that dedicated they could just as easily practice a hand-to-hand move to shoot you with your weapon while its still in your hand (this is quite possible exploiting the nature of body mechanics and automatic human responses).
considering how often the six AA batteries die in my quick access GunVault
mine are locked all the time regardless of when someone visits. Not the trigger or those other through-the-mag-well but in a metal safe or locker. I simply would rather them not stolen so I keep them locked away or in the holster when I am wearing it. I keep large ammo cans full of ammo in the bottom of the lockers, making the idea of someone carrying off the whole container quite difficult. If I don't have enough time to travel 20 feet, use the hidden key to unlock it, insert the loaded magazine and chamber the weapon, then I probably need a different strategy in that case anyway. Security is best in layers, never put all your eggs in a single basket, even if that basket is a
the same argument applies not just to guns, but to every single dangerous tool or piece of machinery. the only reason guns get singled out is because there is, for what ever reason, LESS of a culture of safety with them than other tools. Stupid non gun owning tv directors and movie directors are just as much to blame. The majority of true accidents that arise from guns often occur because they are mishandled
