I will never view the sight of a holstered or nonthreatening carry of a rifle as a bad thing. Clearly some still do. So IMO the more the better under any and all circumstances within the law, of course.

In fact, there is a good chance if constitutional carry doesn't pass this next session people will be exposed to a lot more law abiding citizens carrying rifles once again.
If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything.

I have zero, nada, no issue with anyone OC'ing.

Yep ^^^ No different than people who refuse to talk to the police at a traffic stop. The 5th is for OUR protection; not theirs!
If we do not exercise a right; it will wither due to atrophy.
So many say, answer all questions from LE so you can go on your merry way.

The officer many times does not like it when we exercise the 5th..But, but, but, "it's my right" Oh no; you're just being difficult.

Sorry all that I chimed in, maybe the 5th just isn't important. "

lewe49 created the thread Kore Essentials belt. Amazing.
" So today I broke my Kore Essentials belt buckle. It’s about a year and a half old. I’ve worn this thing 6 days a week in all sorts of situations. I was shocked that it broke. One of the pins broke that held the two pieces of the buckle together.

Now I’ve loved this belt and recommended it to anyone who would listen, including people on this forum. I emailed them and explained what happened. Within fifteen minutes they responded and asked for additional info. They reminded me they have a 1 year warranty. I informed them the belt is older than that and gave them all the info they requested.

Ten minutes later I get an email confirming the shipment of my new buckle along with an email explaining they’ve updated the pins on the buckle since then and this won’t happen again.

Needless to say I am very impressed with their customer service and I would recommend this thing to everyone still.

Here are pictures of the breakhttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...f7fd005f0f.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...4d2f5fad35.jpg

Go get yourself one! Or two or three! "

Where do we think all that money goes? Just to the dealers? LOL
Much of it is used to create legit businesses where the money then funnels to PACS. Why stop that?

We live in evil times where human life has a price; and these days we are living, that price is cheap.
It won't stop then. Criminals and crazies will always get what they need to do harm. I have been on a number of "no guns allowed" Caribbean islands rife with memorials of folks shot to death by criminals. Taking the guns won't stop the violence because the guns are not the root cause. It's just the smoke screen, but by the time anyone realizes that guns were not the issue all along it will be too late. "

You would have to believe that they could find that many such people who are sick enough to do it at the behest of another, who have an action in their past which enables coercion, and who once caught would not spill the beans. Those beans would also reveal the conspiracy because they would be the beans that identified the "masters", unless you believe there is also a large number of them as well, all having the same plan with their cadre of investigators digging up the past on these scumbags. Soon you have involved hundreds perhaps thousands of people, a number impossible to control.

The assassination of Kennedy, a singular event on a singular person, might be possible to cover up if there were maybe 10 or even 20 people involved (but it would be difficult), but expand that number to 100s or thousands and assassinate 5 people we would have people singing like a hyper canary, These theories will have to be proven for me to believe them but if you are saying that the left, the MSM and the Democrats are using these events to further their agenda and are happy to see them happen, I am definitely on board with that. I refer to that as an indirect conspiracy using un-orchestrated events to further an agenda and reveling in their ability to do so.

Actually Alex Jones had more evidence that GW orchestrated the Trade Center's fall than there is evidence that some puppet master is orchestrating multiple sickos to go out and do their bidding and murder defenseless children. However, I say again, if proof is provided I will gladly jump on the bandwagon to grab the puppet masters, try them and execute them within the same week.

Comparing Pentagon Papers, bleaching hard drives, or other such illegal activities to prevent a persons fall from power or to keep themselves out of jail, does not compare to going out and recruiting sickos to murder hundreds of children and innocent people. I am just not as far down that jaded rabbit hole as you are. I have no doubt that some in positions of power might do such a thing if they thought they could get away with it and I am sure they are happy to use the event to further their agenda, but I can't go to that next level that you have obviously moved to, of believing that a majority or even a large portion of those in power would do such a thing. Call me naive if you wish.

"Reality" has to have substance and proof and is not based on opinion or suspicion or even appearances, so at present I believe I am in reality and you are in happy valley though I have to admit it makes me happy to be in this reality. I really don't know if I could live in a world where your happy valley becomes a reality, that would be a really nasty place for me to survive in.

Needless to say but I hope this conspiracy theory is never proven to be true because it is bad enough knowing that some people are using these events to further their agenda and what is worse, they are happy to do so.
We will happily agree to disagree.
I doubt I can sway you into the very real possibility of such coercion other than to debate a few points you brought up:

There are many ways to coerce "a person" to do something but that still doesn't equate to coercing many people to do the same thing.
"Many" is a relative term. How many of these school shooting compared to how many screwed up youth in the world?
Really not that "many" have done these things; no more than any violence perpetrated by law abiding gun owners.

Comparing Pentagon Papers, bleaching hard drives, or other such illegal activities to prevent a persons fall from power or to keep themselves out of jail, does not compare to going out and recruiting sickos to murder hundreds of children and innocent people.
One could argue (I certainly can), that people who are willing AND have the means to wield such power are not above setting up a "patsy" to do their dirty work.

if proof is provided I will gladly jump on the bandwagon to grab the puppet masters
Again; such proof is nearly impossible to provide. I have never touched a deep sea fish nor can I prove God to someone who claims to be a atheist; yet I know by reasonable deduction they both exist.

"Many" did not believe Jews were being slaughtered by the millions as it was happening; yet, it DID happen AND "many" to this day do not believe it despite the evidence.

I am just not as far down that jaded rabbit hole as you are. I have no doubt that some in positions of power might do such a thing if they thought they could get away with it and I am sure they are happy to use the event to further their agenda, but I can't go to that next level that you have obviously moved to,
I don't feel jaded whatsoever, your sense of realty and mine are simply different, in that you, like Thomas, must poke your finger in HIS side and watch Him eat to believe; and THAT is entirely OK.
It is a hard pill to swallow what we are discussing; some people will not even consider the possibility no more than they considered millions being led to death camps.

but I can't go to that next level that you have obviously moved to
Yes; I have gone to that next level; I am happy to tell you why.

I've been a photo journalist for many years. I've been to Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran etc; all in the past 10 yrs.
I have witnessed first hand things I am not allowed to talk about or reveal under penalty of significant guaranteed prison time from OUR government! I'm sure there are former military people in these forums who know EXACTLY what I am talking about. I would be put away faster than a comet. "The Power" on the other hand are pretty much immune to such a thing.

Yep; there is "Them" and then there is "Us"

I'm ok being "us" as I feel better prepared and will not suffer the shock when it does come.
Overall I am a pretty happy well adjusted person. Knowing what I know makes me no better or worse than any average American citizen.

Needless to say but I hope this conspiracy theory is never proven to be true because it is bad enough knowing that some people are using these events to further their agenda and what is worse, they are happy to do so.
"Hope" is a good thing in many areas. Generally we humans "hope" for good things.

"Hoping" the enemy won't attack at night is a nice wish, yet foolish. I'd rather they not attack at night, but I WILL HAVE NIGHT VISION JUST IN CASE..(i.e) I will be prepared and better able to handle the attack.

I see only two classes of people when it comes to conspiracies; those who prepare for the possibility and those who wish they did. One need not be obsessed with the idea of pure evil beyond the pale of normalcy; but to dismiss the possibility for lack of evidence is not wise IMO, especially when one considers the depth of it's eventual effect.

You have to know where this conspiracy of unlimited supply of compliant, crooked, murdering LEOs and government officials has to go to be true and I am sure there are many who will refuse to see how improbable it is and will believe it with absolutely no hard evidence. I am not among them. Show me the proof.

Again I am not saying that the possibility of "collusion" on one or maybe more of these events does not exist but I am saying that I do not believe that all of these are being orchestrated by some evil genius or even Russian oligarchs. When it is proven beyond a reasonable doubt I will admit I was wrong.
One you have to accept paddock was alone and was the shooter.

Which takes a very big leap of faith in LE to swallow.

Folks don't change their base nature in a few weeks or overnight, and all decide to go kill a bunch of people without"help"..

And usually perfectly timed for maximum political effect.

Nobody would have believed the fed would subject college students unknowing to LSD experiments.
Unibomber was born from that fiasco .

Or purposefully poison a documented 10,000 people trying to enforce prohibition. But they did.

After a century of learning years after the fact what travesty 's the fed and it's minions are capable of, why some can't see a clear almost hilariously predictable pattern concerning most school shootings and mass shootings is beyond me.

Want the shootings to stop?.
Americans loudly making clear they don't buy the gov introduced red herring 's like "mental heaulth we need Red flag laws ", or "guns are to accessible BS.
That no more gun control or person control will be accepted, demand GFZ banned, and that school staff be allowed to be armed nationwide .

Shootings mass and school will sign become what the were not that long ago. Rarities. "

I like it so far.
I think with the advancement of battery technologies you will see more and more of these machines. I am not opposed to them as long as they perform as well as their gas equivalent. Two questions. Do they run as long as they are needed and how much do they cost in energy? We're getting close.

Oh....we really do need pictures or it really IS a stealth mower! "

You really see dissension come out when anyone Open Carries. Otherwise rational people that are very pro-gun rights lose their minds and start calling the open carrier all sorts of bad things while totally assuming the reasons he chose to OC, none of them good.

The left really eats this up and they will find someone to put on the news that says something like this, "I am very pro-gun but I only carry concealed. That guy is a show boating idiot and he should not be carrying...blah blah blah."

It really makes us look bad.

I support all lawful carry. Quite simple.

I agree with supporting lawful carry, but I also agree that lawfully carrying in certain situations hurts the cause and some here do not believe that there is any situation that they can't lawfully carry. We will never agree on this because I believe there is a limit and you and others don't. All I am saying is that lawfully carrying in certain situations will harm the RTKAB more than by showing respect and restraint in certain rare situations. "

Which is clearly impossible. But a needed statement get a search warrant of some type.

If one thinks LE must be gone around for the feds to layout a setup one would be mistaken.
After the puppet masters had sent Paddock out to perform his dirty deed and they killed him they immediately went to work on the next mass shooter who managed to survive and because he believes that the masters might file felony drug charges on him he will take their identities to the grave with him as he is executed??

You have to know where this conspiracy of unlimited supply of compliant, crooked, murdering LEOs and government officials has to go to be true and I am sure there are many who will refuse to see how improbable it is and will believe it with absolutely no hard evidence. I am not among them. Show me the proof.

Again I am not saying that the possibility of "collusion" on one or maybe more of these events does not exist but I am saying that I do not believe that all of these are being orchestrated by some evil genius or even Russian oligarchs. When it is proven beyond a reasonable doubt I will admit I was wrong. "

As soon as you are done spreading the paint, pull the masking tape!



Either way, let it dry for 30 minutes.
When it acquires a consistency of putty, flatten it with a blade and trim it further if you want a more sophisticated look.

Of the several comments I've read, here and there, much of the concern is with the seeming defilement of "hallowed" ground (of the victims).

To me, it's more a time-and-place-and-manner choice that people need to make. And that's what I think some of the folks are suggesting, in this discussion. That there's a time and place for things ... and that, given the caustic volatility of the climate right now, it probably was to be expected that a terse, on-scene showing by a clearly armed solo person was going to be attacked for the seeming defilement of the site. No matter how otherwise benign the guy was.

Had the guy been a part of a dozen-strong gathering of folks quietly displaying banners and handheld signs of support (even while carrying) ... across the street or nearby ... I'd guess that wouldn't have been received nearly so badly as this one-off guy's on-scene presence. (Not that a few folks grousing in the media makes it widely poorly received, of course.)
I think you missed my point. I'm saying that if the country is going to contemplate scrapping the 2A, or restricting it to the point of non relevance, and these types of displays are in any way going to help that cause, then it's only a matter of time until it's used by the antis (I think it already is, and could possibly have been used in this case by an anti with an agenda) to tear down the 2nd. There's no law that keeps anti gunners from wearing MAGA hats, open carrying guns, and showing up places to make headlines. "

(Or in the case of many anti's .... to see and rush to judgement.)

It's a caustic, hateful, back-biting climate out there for liberties, particularly the one liberty tens of millions of folks would like to see go up in flames. Whenever folks such as that, the destroyers and despisers (which includes some of my own family members, I'm sad to say), get bees in their bonnets about the RKBA they're likely to jump onto whatever passing anti-RKBA bandwagon happens to be rolling through town. Right now, that's the Parkland children's wagon. Next month, it'll be some other equally-reactionary group.

It could probably have been guessed that anyone short of the most clean-looking, upstanding sort who's articulate beyond belief would have been presumed to be the proverbial threat, the one disrespecting the dead, etc.


Still, I do believe plain, ordinary carry has its place. In any community with brains in its citizens, that is. It's just that at venues like Parkland or similar spots of crimes, many people view it as "holy" ground not to be defiled ... and view anyone not politically "kosher" as defiling that spot. Right or wrong, it's how tens of millions are going to see it. I doubt the guy carrying thought of that, or thought it would cause such a reaction.

Anyway. It is what it is. Carrying in front of everyone means they can't look away and must "deal" with it. The time when people would "deal" via simply remaining calm and accepting folks for the upstanding sorts they are is long gone, with the RKBA issue.
IMO, if certain displays by people with firearms are ultimately going to sink the 2A, then we've already lost the game.

Is it possible that this whole thing was planned by an anti-gun organization, or just this guy, to rile the anti's up? Are we sure this guy was a gun loving trump supporting Republican, and not an anti with an agenda? I don't. "

I just don’t see how a direct conspiracy could orchestrate this and keep it under wraps. If we are talking an indirect conspiracy by the left to cause violent behavior by a segment (young mentally unstable prone to violence freaks) of society to damage the 2nd Amendment, I can see that as a possibility.

I don’t believe there is even “a select few” of the“masters” directing even “a select few” within a “shadow army” to go out and do these vicious attacks. One instance maybe, but multiple instances would be too hard to cover up. Copycats maybe, encouragers certainly, but I don’t see anything behind all of these attacks other than a society in decay, encouraged by a left-wing media and an educational system rife with communists planted by those who seek our demise (which is an indirect conspiracy theory in itself).

I could easily change my mind if some of these “masters” could be identified and exposed, or perhaps some proof of exactly how this was carried out. For now I think the PP gang (Pizza Pedophiles) is a more believable operational conspiracy theory.
Well try this on for size.

They could even quote you.

But even worse is they can use it when they craft anti gun laws as it helps them write legislation they know you and others that consider that guy an idiot will not oppose.

We have no idea if that guy was sound bited by the media. He may have spoke for 10 minutes about rights and his support for them and the media only quoted and broadcast the last two sentences he said as he walked away.

I still talk in person to people too, but texting definitely has a place. Sometimes I need to tell someone something, but I don't have time to get into a conversation that is sure to follow if they pick up the phone.

Also, if you don't want to type out your message, just hit the little microphone button and you can talk to text...all written out for you and you never had to do a thing. Just be sure to proof read it before you send it.

Texting is a convenience. You can make use of it or not.

and don't worry about getting caught, we will cover for you. If you'd rather NOT do this, we can always re-file and let you spend the next 50 yrs of your young life in prison"

Please; no one will ever convince me the government is above this sort of control.

Sure; I'd love to believe as you that America and it's internal security is above board; but then again, I live in reality; not Happy Valley.



How about a operational ladder concerning the assassination of JFK? Unless you believe it was ONLY Oswalt? To this very day it has been covered up...Hell man, just recently the gov will not release ALL info concerning this killing over 50 yrs ago citing national security?!

There are MANY ways to coerce a person into doing something; I just laid out one.
There are many ways to coerce "a person" to do something but that still doesn't equate to coercing many people to do the same thing. That is a totally different paradigm. You would have to believe that they could find that many such people who are sick enough to do it at the behest of another, who have an action in their past which enables coercion, and who once caught would not spill the beans. Those beans would also reveal the conspiracy because they would be the beans that identified the "masters", unless you believe there is also a large number of them as well, all having the same plan with their cadre of investigators digging up the past on these scumbags. Soon you have involved hundreds perhaps thousands of people, a number impossible to control.

The assassination of Kennedy, a singular event on a singular person, might be possible to cover up if there were maybe 10 or even 20 people involved (but it would be difficult), but expand that number to 100s or thousands and assassinate 5 people we would have people singing like a hyper canary, These theories will have to be proven for me to believe them but if you are saying that the left, the MSM and the Democrats are using these events to further their agenda and are happy to see them happen, I am definitely on board with that. I refer to that as an indirect conspiracy using un-orchestrated events to further an agenda and reveling in their ability to do so.

Actually Alex Jones had more evidence that GW orchestrated the Trade Center's fall than there is evidence that some puppet master is orchestrating multiple sickos to go out and do their bidding and murder defenseless children. However, I say again, if proof is provided I will gladly jump on the bandwagon to grab the puppet masters, try them and execute them within the same week.

Comparing Pentagon Papers, bleaching hard drives, or other such illegal activities to prevent a persons fall from power or to keep themselves out of jail, does not compare to going out and recruiting sickos to murder hundreds of children and innocent people. I am just not as far down that jaded rabbit hole as you are. I have no doubt that some in positions of power might do such a thing if they thought they could get away with it and I am sure they are happy to use the event to further their agenda, but I can't go to that next level that you have obviously moved to, of believing that a majority or even a large portion of those in power would do such a thing. Call me naive if you wish.

"Reality" has to have substance and proof and is not based on opinion or suspicion or even appearances, so at present I believe I am in reality and you are in happy valley though I have to admit it makes me happy to be in this reality. I really don't know if I could live in a world where your happy valley becomes a reality, that would be a really nasty place for me to survive in.

Needless to say but I hope this conspiracy theory is never proven to be true because it is bad enough knowing that some people are using these events to further their agenda and what is worse, they are happy to do so. "

When guns are hidden, it is quite easy for those that are anti-gun or without opinion on guns to assume no one carries so why does it even matter if the right is taken away?

If those same people see gun carriers open carrying on a daily basis, out and about shopping, dining out, getting gas, attending soccer practice, or any other normal activity, they will realize that blood is not running in the streets.

They will realize that law abiding people carrying firearms are not a problem.

They will realize just how many lawful gun carriers are out there because I guarantee you they have no clue.

Recently, at a family get together, one of my sister in-laws stated she knew no one that carried.

She did not understand why everyone was so upset when the government wanted to protect people by getting guns off the street.

She was finally silenced when a couple of the cousins showed her they carried. She was aghast and had no clue. She was further surprised when a senior aunt showed her .380.

I didn't even have to show my .45 as she was getting the point.

The conversation turned to how everyone that carried were responsible and were not a threat.

We ain't convinced her totally, but she is going to the range with her aunt soon.

Point is, all lawful carry is good as it shows the absurdity of the blood in the streets claim.

In your post, you referred to the lawful gun carrier as an idiot.

Anyone, including the anti gun lurkers that screen these sorts of progun sites could use your post as an indication of division within the pro gun camp.

They could even quote you.

But even worse is they can use it when they craft anti gun laws as it helps them write legislation they know you and others that consider that guy an idiot will not oppose.

We have no idea if that guy was sound bited by the media. He may have spoke for 10 minutes about rights and his support for them and the media only quoted and broadcast the last two sentences he said as he walked away.

How do you figure? Did I say the hell with the 2nd? Did I say I was against open carry? I believe the Answer is NO. I'm simply stating that the actions of alot (not all) open carriers is going to be the cause of a lot of resistance to the fight to up hold the 2nd.

I've never carried in his office, even though I could legally. But since my wife worked there until last year, I didn't want to cause issues for her. Never mentioned guns to him at all. So I said yes, that and other reasons. (Plus it's hard to hide an IWB when you're getting your prostate checked.)

He asked what I carried and where. I told him either Glock 30 or S&W 6906 at 3:00. He said he bet it was difficult with my back pain. I agreed, which is another reason I wasn't carrying at the time.

So I asked what he carried just to gage his reaction. Glock 43... NOW the guy finally starts to pay attention to me. He asked what caliber my Glock was, so evidently he is not a real gun guy. Forty-five, says I. He says no wonder I have back pain. (Insert head slap here.) I should have told him I counterweigh it with six extra mags on the left side.

So at our last meeting my doctor and I finally see eye to eye on something. But my back still hurts.
I recently discovered something called CBD Oil. (Hemp Oil)
You can get it at your local natural health food supply store. (No Rx needed. Just a few drops on your tongue a couple times a day.)

Tramadol, Oxycodone, nor any other Rx pain med has ever worked for my pain. But, I have high hopes for this stuff. This is my first week of using it. It's expensive. But, it seems to be helping some. "

I just don’t see how a direct conspiracy could orchestrate this and keep it under wraps. If we are talking an indirect conspiracy by the left to cause violent behavior by a segment (young mentally unstable prone to violence freaks) of society to damage the 2nd Amendment, I can see that as a possibility.

I don’t believe there is even “a select few” of the“masters” directing even “a select few” within a “shadow army” to go out and do these vicious attacks. One instance maybe, but multiple instances would be too hard to cover up. Copycats maybe, encouragers certainly, but I don’t see anything behind all of these attacks other than a society in decay, encouraged by a left-wing media and an educational system rife with communists planted by those who seek our demise (which is an indirect conspiracy theory in itself).

I could easily change my mind if some of these “masters” could be identified and exposed, or perhaps some proof of exactly how this was carried out. For now I think the PP gang (Pizza Pedophiles) is a more believable operational conspiracy theory.
I just don’t see how a direct conspiracy could orchestrate this and keep it under wraps.
Kinda' like having a personal server that one keeps classified info on and then magically disappears? Shall I go on?
How about a un-winnable war our top generals wrote papers about while it was raging; yet covered it up? Pentagon Papers.

Try this one on for size:

"Hey son, we are the government and YOU have multiple felonies because of this stop we just did on you.
Tell ya' what. We are gonna' let ya' go, in the future we may need a favor"

"Oh hi there Big Johnny; remember those felonies we let you slide on?...well; we need a little favor...
and don't worry about getting caught, we will cover for you. If you'd rather NOT do this, we can always re-file and let you spend the next 50 yrs of your young life in prison"

Please; no one will ever convince me the government is above this sort of control.

Sure; I'd love to believe as you that America and it's internal security is above board; but then again, I live in reality; not Happy Valley.

Not saying this is impossible but I would need a someone to lay out a diagram or operational ladder of exactly how they would go about this.
How about a operational ladder concerning the assassination of JFK? Unless you believe it was ONLY Oswalt? To this very day it has been covered up...Hell man, just recently the gov will not release ALL info concerning this killing over 50 yrs ago citing national security?!

If a wall were constructed I feel there would come a time when it becomes a useless relic. However, if it lasts a generation or two, I'd be happy with that.

There was a time when the United States would have tried to stop illegal immigration on pure principal. I don't know why we missed that window. "

" I agree with Trump and what his goal is but I for one never thought we needed a wall.

We need to explore better electronic solutions, and we also need to better enforce our current laws. Turn ICE and Homeland Security loose and don't hamper or undermine their efforts, eliminate sanctuary cities and when someone messes up and gets deported find a way to make that deportation stick. And if someone deported circumvents whatever we did to get rid of them, then hammer them extra super special hard.

But we need better enforcement and LE's that have the right and the leeway and the resources to do their job just as much as we need a wall - and if we had those things we may not need much of a wall. "

No argument there. I would like to see what more people and some technology (drones, etc.) could do. I guess I would rather put the money that it would take to build a wall into American workers pockets first, rather than putting it into steel, concrete, etc. "

" We need a wall and make it a very tall one that is impossible to scale. If need be, put electrified wire at the top. We might not need one across the entire border because some areas may be easier to patrol than others.

It might not stop them all, in fact, it won't because they also dig tunnels, but it will help a lot.

I laugh at Libs who want to ban certain types of weapons. Where do they think many of those weapons come from? Mexico and South America...smuggled in under cover of night across an unsecure border. "

" I like to text because it gives you a written record of who said what. It's especially good when you're planning to meet someone because you can refer back to time, date and place if you need to. How is texting any different that writing a note or a letter?

I still talk in person to people too, but texting definitely has a place. Sometimes I need to tell someone something, but I don't have time to get into a conversation that is sure to follow if they pick up the phone.

Also, if you don't want to type out your message, just hit the little microphone button and you can talk to text...all written out for you and you never had to do a thing. Just be sure to proof read it before you send it.

Texting is a convenience. You can make use of it or not. "

" I'm with Old Vet on this.

I work with the local high school as a Chaplain with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. I work with five different sports, both boys and girls sports. See a lot of kids - good kids, kids that want to be good, kids that struggle to be good and kids that just don't give a rats behind. It's tough. One of the coaches, the guy that got me into this in the first place and a man that I respect and enjoy working with says it this way:

It will take 12 to 15 years of this before we can get it rooted out. The only way to change it is to start now, at the middle school level or lower, and instilling better values and some sense of respect in the coming generations. And to do that we will have to essentially replace the role of the parent with the teachers and coaches that kids work with. If we can do that, 12 to 15 years from now we'll have a nation full of kids with a different perspective and will be able to drive most of this out of our system - although we'll still deal with the ones already infected and just growing older.

Not saying this is impossible but I would need a someone to lay out a diagram or operational ladder of exactly how they would go about this.

Are we talking mind control drugs, hypnotic trances, monetary reimbursement or something else? The actors would have to be limited in number as is true with any successful conspiracy and it would have to be very subtle in nature to be hidden from the population.

I just don’t see how a direct conspiracy could orchestrate this and keep it under wraps. If we are talking an indirect conspiracy by the left to cause violent behavior by a segment (young mentally unstable prone to violence freaks) of society to damage the 2nd Amendment, I can see that as a possibility.

I don’t believe there is even “a select few” of the“masters” directing even “a select few” within a “shadow army” to go out and do these vicious attacks. One instance maybe, but multiple instances would be too hard to cover up. Copycats maybe, encouragers certainly, but I don’t see anything behind all of these attacks other than a society in decay, encouraged by a left-wing media and an educational system rife with communists planted by those who seek our demise (which is an indirect conspiracy theory in itself).

I could easily change my mind if some of these “masters” could be identified and exposed, or perhaps some proof of exactly how this was carried out. For now I think the PP gang (Pizza Pedophiles) is a more believable operational conspiracy theory. "

Every move in civilization has a agenda; who's agenda is not the point.

Anyone stop to think the agenda here is to get the guns?

My belief?..These shootings will not stop until "they" get the guns.

The flow of illegal drugs has not slowed one iota. Why?
Where do we think all that money goes? Just to the dealers? LOL
Much of it is used to create legit businesses where the money then funnels to PACS. Why stop that?

Seriously, there is also a quote by Hillary I agree with and I think she means it. I think it should be a mantra for us on the pro-gun side. She said, "I don't see the Second Amendment as being an impediment to effective gun control." She is clearly right. We are always chanting "...shall not be infringed" but 2A, as wonderful as it is, have been proven by history as being mostly irrelevant. It helps out in rare court cases, but that's about it. The NRA says there are over 3,000 infringements in place across the country with 2A still very much in place. The British Bill of Rights supposedly ensured the RTKABA for Protestants in 1638. It has not been repealed yet gun rights are all but gone there. That is happening here.

We need to wake up to the real battle. The anti-gun people are just distracting us with bump stock bans and stupid calls to repeal 2A. I hate those also and of course I oppose them on principle. But the much more important battles are at the state level and it is over our choices of what we can and cannot buy, and do, with guns on a daily basis. The anti-gunners have woken up to this and that is where they are putting their emphasis, even though the MSM is not covering it.

The VCDL has been instrumental in getting over 30 gun control bills squashed since the first of the year. If all of them had gone through, VA would have UBCs, mag limits, limited reciprocity, local preemption of state laws, expanded GFZs and a bunch of other stuff, without the feds doing anything. Meanwhile, pro-gunners are getting all "Chicken Little" over a proposed federal bump stock ban. The opposition is distracting us with one hand so we don't see what the other is doing. "
