  1. When the SOTU turns into a clown show, circus, whatever…then we shouldn’t be surprised when those in attendance act less than professional. This has been a long time coming and the SOTU has become a joke, and has been for quite a while. All it is now is an opportunity for the President and his party to tell you how great they’ve been doing, how bad the other side is, and their pie in the sky dream list to appease their base. The joke is on all of you who tuned in or are focusing on the show.
  2. Just curious if you think DeSantis and the GOP FL state legislature passing Constitutional/permitless carry is “fascism”? This Dem Congressman thinks it is btw… https://www.foxnews.com/politics/democratic-rep-maxwell-frost-says-florida-proposed-permitless-gun-carry-law-fascism.amp
  3. I hear you man…haven’t done a lot of research on this one particularly, but if they’re legit, I’m sure they could use your help. https://www.savethechildren.org/us/where-we-work/haiti
  4. When it comes to waste, I’m pretty sure China thinks the US can waste plenty on its own. https://www.foxnews.com/media/congress-1-7-trillion-spending-bill-includes-millions-gender-equity-climate-initiatives
  5. So it already crossed most of the US coast to coast, and now it get shots down…I understand the desire to bring it down over the ocean for various reasons, but I’m guessing that some sort of intelligence it was gathering has already made its way back to China.

    They look pretty good considering he’s been shooting them every couple of months over the last 10+ years!

    It’s pretty simple—if you like and/or want more gun control laws then you most likely want and trust the ATF. And vice versa. The ATF isn’t needed anymore than the DEA, or plenty of the other bureaucratic 3 letter organizations.

    The way the ATF interprets the laws (and their own interpretations), the mere act of having such a device is enough to prosecute.
  9. You don’t remember this recent gem? ‘Air Force fires colonel who berated subordinates for following safety protocols‘ “The Donovan story picked up a large following on social media forums like the unofficial Air Force subreddit and the Facebook page Air Force amn/nco/snco, where airmen could relate to the sense that the unit’s leaders were unconcerned for the safety of their subordinates.” https://taskandpurpose.com/news/air-force-col-donovan-tinker-relieved/?amp
  10. Who gets to define what is RIGHT? Last I checked, the military isn’t a democracy. And standing up for what this guy believed is right didn’t work out too well for him… https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-marine-corps/2022/03/07/the-unmaking-of-lt-col-stuart-scheller/
  11. If the GOP has a large field of candidates after the first 3-4 states, Trump most likely wins the nomination…of course assuming nothing drastically changes between now and then. By SC, there really can only be Trump and one other major nominee for Trump to not get it. As of right now I don’t think that’s Nikki Haley…though she could do well in SC because that’s her state. She has a lot of pros going for her, but in today’s environment, the majority of GOP voters want a fighter, and Haley doesn’t come across that way. She was a traditional Republican governor—didn’t do a bad job, but didn’t set herself apart from the rest. Now DeSantis, he’s doing just that. He’s a fighter, but with what more/less appears to be a relatively clean personal record. And anyone that can go from barely winning against a drug addict in 2018, to 4 years later destroying his opponent in a state like Florida, only goes to show that he has appeal in the middle/past the hard liners. As far as Trump then running as an independent, my money is on that he wouldn’t, but I wouldn’t be shocked if he did. If he runs as an independent, not only does he lose, but he also pisses off many of his previous supporters who don’t want him splitting the vote. As for the Dems, assuming it’s not Biden, I always thought that Buttigeg would get the nod since he checks the boxes for the left, but lately I’ve been hearing a lot of rumbling abut Michelle Obama…who has never held office of any kind, never been in charge of a business, etc. But the left really likes her and she also checks a lot of their boxes.
  12. I’m sure President Biden and his fantastic press secretary will have something insightful to say this week regarding the General’s remarks.

    Dude, I love you, but I’m more likely to believe an attorney with GOA than you on this one. Also, this is from the firearmblog: The Department has determined that, as a matter of its own enforcement discretion, it will not, as the NPRM suggested as an option, require individuals and FFLs without an SOT that timely register their affected weapons with a “stabilizing brace,” which are in their possession as of the date this rule is published, to pay the $200 making tax usually due upon submission of such an application to register. The whole point is that you’re going to be telling the ATF you are already in possession of the “SBR” (ie pistol w/brace) to get the free stamp/registration. I think the problem is you’re going off of your prior knowledge before this new ruling/regulation…don’t you think one or more items in this process might be changing given the massive new change in the rule? https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2023/01/13/firearms-stabilizing-braces/
