Re: The Color of Crime

Are the statistics used in this article are based on reports, arrests, or convictions? I suspect they are based on convictions, as that is the closest we can get to determining if a person actually committed a crime, and unlike reports, would include an accurate description of race. As such, I would...

Re: Screw Jim Carrey

What Jim Carrey and countless other Hollywood fruitcakes fail to realize is that I will never go see a movie just because I agree with something they say, but I will sure as hell avoid one.

Re: Proof that magazine capacity bans are unconstitutional

I keep reading this crap about "in common use at the time". This should be irrelevant as criminals are not limiting themselves to 18th century weapons. Limiting myself to such weapons when the people I need to defend myself against aren't imposes an unreasonable restriction upon me. I can't believe ...

Proof that magazine capacity bans are unconstitutional

Any legislation limiting the number of rounds that a magazine can hold should be the easiest of gun control legislation to have declared unconstitutional. Should they pass such legislation: Step 1: Get arrested for being in possession of an illegal "High Capacity" magazine. Step 2: Plead "Not Guilty...

Re: Your Guns . . . You Will Turn Them Over

As for the article in the OP, I think the author is a supporter of the 2nd Amendment, but he does have an odd way of expressing it. For starters, he keeps saying that if you resist, you will die and your death will have been for nothing. I couldn't disagree more. Unless of course everyone else has b...

Re: Your Guns . . . You Will Turn Them Over

That's the thing about stereotypes. Often times they are accurate. Of course that doesn't mean EVERY cop is a bad cop. I've met quite a few who were good cops and good people and I can honestly say I've never had a run in with a bad cop. All that being said, they are out there. Probably moreso in la...

Re: Does Obama Think U.S. Soldiers Use AK-47s?

Actually, the first time I held and fired an AK-47 was when I was in the US Army. It wasn't my assigned weapon and it was only for familiarization, but still. He also didn't make the distinction that he was talking about US soldiers. Sometimes I feel like we're nitpicking him just for the sake of ni...

Would this have prevented him from getting his guns? Was he a criminal at the time he purchased them? Isn't there something in place already that prevents criminals from legally obtaining firearms? (Criminals being felons) Or are we talking about criminals as in Department of Pre-Crime criminals?

Re: Bloomberg: America cannot wait any longer for gun contro

Now now... I don't think "crazies" is a politically correct term. When referring to people like Bloomberg, we should use words like "treason" or "traitor" or "terrorist". (Why not, he's using fear to advance his political agenda - pretty much the textbook definition of terrorism)

But Homosexual != Pedophile, just like gun owner does not equal murderer, or silencer owner do...

Re: Help me design a working miniature tank gun

Why does aiming have to be difficult? Attach a GoPro camera to the barrel and align it. Hook that up to a wireless transmitter and put crosshairs on the monitor. Aim by looking at the screen so it's natural, not by looking at the tank and trying to figure out where it's aiming.
