Why in the hell is he sitting there in cuffs? He should be at the station getting mug shots and interrogated by Det. Belker.

Hunters in general are done with dicks

I hunt and I really don't give a shit if Dicks sells guns or not. I'm not going to buy a gun from a big box store like Dicks. And Don't equate people who hunt with people who care about guns with 30 round magazines. A vast majority of the people I hunt with don't own ARs, and use bolt action/pump when hunting.

edit: Downvote me all you want, but it doesn't change the fact that most guns in the US are non semi-automatic.

50% of guns owned and sold today are non-semi automatic

Source? I would say the % is closer to 5%.

I stand corrected. I thought the percents were different because I have never purchased a firearm other that a semi-auto. I have some wheel guns, but I was gifted them.

3,000 ads for more than $100,000 over a two-year period

That is a drop in the bucket of ad money spent on the election.

It is illegal for a campaign to run these kinds of ads as they don't identify who paid for them.

That might not seem like a big deal, but if Trump ran an ad about how Bernie got shafted with a big tagline "Paid for by Trump 2016", it would have hardly worked as well.

There is nothing in the article that indicates any campaign paid for these ads. Did you read the article?

with a bunch of guns.

Is it illegal?

Carrying a gun into a police station where I live is illegal.

Just discharging in a residential area can be pretty serious. I'm not a lawyer but we deal with this silliness where I live so it comes up a lot, especially lately. Quick glance through the sentencing structure looks like just that alone could potentially lead to life under some circumstances.

I can fire a weapon in a residential area on my property as long as the bullet stays on my property. That is Florida law. Now that is not to say my neighbors won't complain or some yahoo cop shows up that does not know the law. Link

His link is from 2017. You link is from 2015. His link is also Florida legislation.

I stand corrected. Either way, I had no intentions of firing a gun in my neighborhood.

Not assault rifles. Semi-auto civilian rifles modeled after assault rifles.

Dick's never sold actual assault rifles AFAIK.

But they sold guns with .30 caliber clips.

This isn't that hard to understand.

Up to 1950, the census asked everybody if they are citizens.

In 1960, this question was completely dropped except in NYC and Puerto Rico.

From 1970 to 2000, only 20% were asked about citizenship.

In 2010, nobody was asked about citizenship.

In 2020, we are going back to the 1950 model, in which everybody was asked about citizenship.

This isn't that hard to understand.

No it is not. There was a citizenship question on my census form in 2000. The number of others that received such a question that year or in other years is irrelevant. No citizenship question since 1950 is BS even if only one person was asked that question on their form.

Your link is to the long firm, sent to 16% of the households. The regular form included no such question.

Here it is: https://www.census.gov/dmd/www/pdf/d61a.pdf

16% of the households or 1%. So what? My contention was that politifact was incorrect, and the citizenship question had been asked since 1950. My claim stands.

Why is the fact that he played basketball even mentioned? There’s no mention of him getting any offers from colleges, so how much of a stand-out player could he have been?

It is more gentle than calling him a thug which he is.

You need a gun to protect your self from kids throwing rocks?

Man, anyone who thinks that throwing rocks deserves death is broken in the head.

A lot of modern handguns do not have manual safeties. The article does not specify the gun's model.

I have a hard time believing that.

In other news a Florida based company is producing a legal product following all applicable laws.

A camera? I have a gun.

I’m not a gun owner but wouldn’t all bullets travel at the same speed regardless of the weapon they are fired from?

1 point · 3 months ago · edited 3 months ago

No. Handgun bullets travel at 1000fps or so. Some rifle bullets can travel at 2500+fps.

Uh... handguns easily get into average speeds of 1200-1300 and are supersonic when they leave the gun.

Misdemeanor, not a criminal offense.

You need to study up on the meaning of misdemeanor. It is a crime.

Those people should be fighting for better mental health, not less guns

Better idea, let's fight for both. I'd love to see a plan that bans automatic (edit: AND semi) weapons, has airtight regulations for gun ownership, and promotes mental health options for Americans

When and where has a full auto weapon been used in a mass shooting or other crime by a civilian in the US?

13 points · 4 months ago

Pathetic, no ones trying to take your guns away. But there's absolutely no reason a civilian should have an AR15. It's time to reform our gun policies, or do you wanna see this shit keep happening? There's a reason were the only ones who keep going through this

I am going to bet you have never shot an AR-15.

I'm sorry, is that supposed to be an arguement?

Yes. A reason to own one is that they are fun to shoot. 99.9% of AR-15s are not used to commit a crime just like 99.9% of Home Depot truck rentals are not used to mow down people. And you did not say if you have shot an AR-15.

Anything that can be printed on your computer can be "printed" to a PDF using novaPDF (http://www.novapdf.com/). It is not free, but it is worth the minimal cost. I use it all the time, I have no affiliation with novaPDF. NOTE: This software will access the internet to make sure your license is valid. If you block its access, the software will not work.

Or you can use PDF Creator which is free.

I believe novaPDF works differently than that product. NovaPDF installs as a printer driver, so any program that has printed output, can be "printed" to a PDF. You don't have to have a file to convert.

not allowing mere accusation to become weaponized.

Accusations? There was a photo.

I use this. It is not free, but it lets me convert anything I can print on the computer to a PDF.
