  1. My thought exactly. Someone tell me why this is wrong.
  2. Yeah, that was a little hyperbole thrown in for effect. However, I'd point out that a man wearing body armor with a mission to kill unsuspecting civilians with an AR might as well be the American military versus poorly trained combatants. The results, as we saw this weekend, are going to be the same.
  3. Agreed. There's going to have to be give and take and these are reasonable suggestions. Write your congress critter.
  4. If I even had the presence of mind and the courage to shoot back at someone trying to kill me in a grocery store, I'd aim center mass and pray to science that my hands weren't shaking. There are so many variables (training, presence of mind, distance to target, caliber, etc.) that come into play in a situation like this. Bottom line is that if you have a handgun and your target is carrying an M4 (or whatever), you'd better hope they're wearing a t-shirt and shorts and that you have the drop on them. Better still, hope there's two of you and one of him. The guy who shot back probably knew he had one chance to do something and as a former cop, he probably aimed center mass and hoped he didn't miss. He likely knew he wasn't getting out alive. He's an American hero and I'd replace ten Tucker fans with one of him every day of the week.
  5. I understand the point you're trying to make with these types of posts, but low hanging fruit like banning body armor sales to civilians and high capacity magazines could be simple deterrents to your every day mass shooter. Sure, some of your lunatic, unhinged, Tucker Carlson fans are going to go above and beyond the call of duty and make their own armor, and print their own drum mags, but if we can make it harder for the lazy ones, I think that's a good start. My point is that we can't keep doing nothing. My counterpoint is that we're going to keep doing nothing and people are going to keep dying. I'll just be out here on the ledge trying not to get shot.
  6. Which is not the same thing as "All racists are Republicans" which was your complaint in my quote above.
  7. Nearly all racists are Republican was the post you quoted.
  8. Unless the police no-knock the wrong address, of course.
  9. I've got to hand it to you, you've chosen the weirdest hill to climb and die on.
  10. She called him stupid. Which he is. You’re overreacting.
  11. My wife and I have a similar story, but we weaned off pumped milk at about two months for a variety of reasons. Luckily, BM was being oversupplied so we froze a decent amount which is supplementing formula.
  12. What a shot. Needs to convert for eagle.
