    +1 for JC GoF

    Smooth transaction and part better than described.
  6. Yes, they do indeed want us to do something. What a better excuse to impose martial law, confiscate guns and imprison and/or kill millions of political dissenters. I do believe there are certain elements in the gun grabber mentality that really do want this sort of thing to happen. But everyone should be careful what they wish for. The flash point could come from either side of the aisle and all it takes is a fraction of an inch too far from either direction to start a back and forth debate that would most likely end poorly for everyone concerned. I only hope it hasn't already gone too far and people wake up and realize what the left is really all about. We say this every two years, but I guess 2014 will really tell the tale. I hope I am right, but am mentally preparing for the worst.
  7. A blade section would be nice. I refuse to post pictures of my edged assault knives. They might be held against me.

    WTS Spring sale

    I'll take the Draco pistol grip with sling loop.
  9. I believe there was some sort of record and/or receipts found at the home that they found. Doh! Didn't even think of that as I don't keep any receipts after 2 years.
  10. What's interesting is that they did it 6 days after the shooting. I didn't think there was a gun registry. How did they know that weapon was purchased there? Is there some way the serial number is tracked from the OEM to the shop? The 4473's are kept locally at the shop as far as I know and the weapon isn't tied to an individual unless there is reason for the BATFE to inspect the forms or the gun shop goes out of business and turns their 4473's in. That's how it works in my state.

    Does It Ever End!

    Check out this dumbass in the comments section of that article. Oh wait, FUCK YOU! SMH at the sheeple. Must....Keep....Calm..... Oh wait, does me saying that through gritted teeth with a slightly, well let's just say, awkward grin make me a candidate to be reported? Beginning to feel like a prole here........Oh wait, FUCK YOU! SUPER USER·1,300 Fans·I Think, therefore I POST! Excellent. Colorado will lead the nation in the effort to curb gun violence - I commend them for being brave enought to step up and be seen as being against the human tragedy that gun violence represents. I should note that many of these new laws are preliminary - they will need tuning - there is no call or need to victimize honest, responsible gun owners - but the weeding process must begin, and only demonstrably responsible citizens should wield deadly weapons. If we overreach to save lives and reduce the violence - so be it. Civilians in this day and age have little use for guns - they may want them, but they really don't need them - crime is too random and unpredictable, you can't respond fast enough in the civilian setting - the only defense is take criminals off the street and keep them off - we have our police forces to thank for that largely successful effort. No, the Wild Wild West in only in the movies - we are a land of laws, and guns are too dangerous for most citizens to own - still, it's fine to do so - responsibly.
  12. I wouldn't be surprised if it was tossed in with some inane appropriations bill for "the children" or some shit. Look at all the crap they have shoved down the our throats without "We The Peoples" consent in the past few years. What the hell ever happened to governed by the consent of the governed?
  13. Well it looks like the Small Arms Treaty that the gun community and the NRA in particular has been saying was doom and gloom for some time has passed at the UN. I wonder what this means for the US and our Second Amendment rights. In the current environment, nothing would surprise me. Thoughts? http://news.yahoo.com/u-n-overwhelmingly-approves-first-ever-global-arms-155542094.html
  14. My issue with it is that people go through problems from time to time and may seek help. Seeking professional help would make you a pariah and IMO, could reduce people who need short term help from seeking it. I mean if we go to these lengths, shouldn't there be some sort of criteria for keeping people from owning a firearm other than just being admitted to a mental facility. I read this to mean that if someone is having a rough time when they are 20 due to a parent dying, combined with a sick child and they become mentally stressed/depressed for a short time and seek help for example, that they would be excluded from purchasing or owning a firearm when they are 40 and haven't had any other issues for 20 years. Just seems like a slippery slope....
  15. I can't believe this is happening in my country. http://www.wral.com/conn-reaches-deal-on-tough-gun-laws-after-newtown/12291898/ HARTFORD, CONN. — Connecticut lawmakers announced a deal Monday on what they called some of the toughest gun laws in the country that were proposed after the December mass shooting in the state, including a ban on new high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the massacre that left 20 children and six educators dead. The proposal also called for background checks for private gun sales and a new registry for existing magazines that carry 10 or more bullets, something of a compromise for parents of Newtown victims who had wanted an outright ban on them, while legislators had proposed grandfathering them into the law. The package also creates what lawmakers said is the nation's first statewide dangerous weapon offender registry, immediate universal background checks for all firearms sales and expansion of Connecticut's assault weapons ban. A new state-issued eligibility certificate would also be needed to purchase any rifle, shotgun or ammunition under the legislation. To get the certificate, a buyer would need to be fingerprinted, take a firearms training course and undergo a national criminal background check and involuntary commitment or voluntary admission check. The deal is "the most comprehensive package in the country because of its breadth," said Senate Minority Leader John McKinney, a Fairfield Republican whose district includes Newtown. McKinney said people tend to focus on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, but he said "there's a lot here underneath the surface" addressing mental health, school security and other issues. The proposal was revealed to rank-and-file lawmakers Monday after weeks of negotiations among legislative leaders. A vote was expected later this week in the Legislature, where Democrats control both chambers, making passage all but assured. The bill would then be sent to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who has helped lead efforts to strengthen the state's gun laws. Connecticut is sending a message to Washington and the rest of the country "this is the way to get this job done," said House Speaker Brendan Sharkey, a Democrat from Hamden. Both Democratic and Republican leaders were expected to support the proposal, which had been in the works for about a month. The shooting reignited the gun debate in the country and led to calls for increased gun control legislation on the federal and state levels. While some other states, including New York, have strengthened their gun laws since the shooting, momentum has stalled in Congress, whose members were urged by President Barack Obama last week not to forget the shooting and to capitalize on the best change in years to stem gun violence. The gunman in Newtown blasted his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School and fired off 154 shots with a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle within five minutes. He went through six 30-round magazines, though half were not completely empty, and police said he had three other 30-round magazines in addition to one in the rifle. He gunned down 26 people, then shot himself to death with a handgun. Six relatives of Newtown victims visited the Capitol on Monday, asking lawmakers to include a ban on existing high-capacity magazines. Some handed out cards with photographs of their slain children. They delivered a letter signed by 24 relatives that demanded that legislators include existing large-capacity ammunition magazines in the ban on the sale of magazines that carry 10 or more bullets. Allowing such large-capacity magazines to remain in the hands of gun owners would leave a gaping loophole in the law, said Mark Barden, whose 7-year-old son, Daniel, was killed in the shooting. "It doesn't prevent someone from going out of the state to purchase them and then bring them back. There's no way to track when they were purchased, so they can say, 'I had this before,'" Barden said. "So it's a big loophole." Jake McGuigan, a spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which is based in Newtown, said he wouldn't comment on the proposal until he saw it in the writing, but he questioned the mechanics of a registry for magazines. "How will they register a magazine? It seems a little weird," he said.
