Gun control bills will never make it to the idiot we have for gov now.
Gun control is a loser in this state and the legislature knows it. Besides all the authority they have is to prevent cc. And that ship sailed out of their port entirely In the last couple of years.

We had his daddy as gov with a Dem controlled legislature and no gun control Bill's even got out of committe.
The ky legislature knows they can't pass red flag and hope to enforce it in this state.

Andy is just posturing. He can claim he will do this or that with guns because he knows no red flag or gun control bill will reach his desk. "

Notice that among the “few” powers granted by the states to its agent, the federal government, you will not find the power to disarm civilians.
Perhaps not, though many STATES have already deeply infringed upon the2A and need no help from the federal gov to do so. "

There is lofty opinion from on high, then there is the reality that alot of families actually live in the real world.
Actually your opinion applies only to your opinion of what the real world is, as does mine. My opinion is no higher than yours but at the very least I try to back up my opinions with the opinions of others, with data from historical sources, and like you I use personal experience as well.

I am perfectly fine with a State granting a hardship exemption to drive to a 14 year old if needed. However I am not saying that the COTUS prevents a State from granting that hardship license. I would be against a State granting a hardship license to an 8 year old to drive on public highways under any circumstance however. That is because I believe the State and the people have the right to regulate who drives in their State. Comparing 14 year olds to 8 year olds is a straw man.

As usual you apply a meaning to my opinion that I did not say or mean. What you did as an 8 year old in rural Kentucky 60 years ago, or any other State, has no bearing on what I said. I said that anyone who believes that "the COTUS" grants an 8 year old permission to drive or to carry a gun to school is putting forth a ridiculous argument that only damages the the beliefs of those who would really like to see the government reduce their everyday interference into our lives as American citizens.

The fact is the ideas you have expressed before on these issues are utopian and have no basis in the reality of today's world. What the reality was 60 years ago is not the reality that faces us today. The people have become more reliant on the government to grant them their every wish and they don't mind giving it (government) ever increasing powers. I don't like it, but that is the reality we live in. Fighting this tide of governmental excess is hampered by ridiculous arguments such as these, that have no basis in the COTUS.

My main point is that debating the right of State governments to require liability insurance to "try" and protect the public at large is a reasonable debate to have, posturing that the States do not have the right to pass laws setting age limits on the right to drive or the right to carry a gun to school is a utopian dystopia I have no desire to participate in. So I will continue to speak out against those arguments that I consider ridiculous. "

Unfortunately not.

The info I did find is in a Wall Street Journal article which requires a paid subscription. Judicious google foo brought up snippets but not the entire article.

But I can make a good guess at one item suitable for additional compensation. Donations and membership fell in 2017, so bringing in more members and revenue could very well be the source of significant incentive pay in 2018. "

" Any martial art provides you with a set of tools. The rest of it is honing your skills with those tools. Individual conditioning, toughness, intelligence, and determination have a lot to do with how well those tools are used. Your mind is your most important tool and, if used well, will allow you to avoid most conflicts. That being said, whatever martial art you study, at least be able to throw a solid right or left cross, do a strong front kick, and know how to block and get out of the way. I am using my mind right now, and it tells me to aways carry if it is at all possible. "

I can't speak for everyone, but I don't see a lot of "never NRA" people. I see a lot of people unhappy with the corruption (including employees of the NRA) deciding that they no longer want to be part of a corrupt organization. Many of them (myself included) would be perfectly fine donating again, should the organization clean up their act. Until then, considering that they want my donations to keep them going, I feel I have the right to choose whether or not I want to give money to an organization that I feel is corrupt from the top. Some may disagree... "

Ky is the prime example of your theory being wrong.

Ky historically was a closed shop state until Bevin.
And historically a Democrat controlled legislature unti recently.
Yet ky has always been a very gun friendly state, and remains so.
The bipartisan effort that's being spoke of is a grand total of 3 senators.
No bill has been proposed. If one is it's entirely likely it will be ignored just as the last red flag bill proposed was.

Ky is probably the only state where liberal reps, all 8 of em will propose an anti gun bill, then vote against their own bill out of fear of losing office lol "

Maybe. Other countries with very limited gun rights have organizations like the NRA that seem to be doing well. As long as there are any gun permissions left at all, people fight to keep them. The NRA of the UK is older than ours. Prince Charles was president at one point!

There is an NRA of India that seems to be doing well. They mostly deal with target shooting and manage India's Olympic shooting team. But they also teach defensive shooting and it is possible to get a carry permit in India, although they don't make it easy.

My guess is there will always be a US NRA, but it I think it may be a shadow of what it was. Wayne won't care. He will be richly retired. "

Not because of devotion to the RTKABA but the phrase " there are better jobs than willingly going on suicide missions that pay better."

Never be such a law passed in this state . Even if there was it would fall to legal challenge inside of a few months.

Ky legislators step very gingerly around the subject of guns except for cc carry. They rather not have their constitutional skirt tails lifted for all to see.

Really good post GR. You have accurately portrayed what we are facing. Perhaps HRC's baggage would sink her but I doubt it. The left is rabidly into the camp of asking "what can the Country do for me" and the Democrat Party and HRC have responded "anything you want me to do for you and all I need is your vote".

I think Bloomberg would have the best chance against Trump, which is bad, but if elected he would probably be better for the Country than the other Dems, other than on gun-control. One good thing if he did run, a lot of people, that hate Trump, might vote for him just because of the danger Bloomberg poses for the RTKAB.

" Any argument that includes one side indicating that a 10 year old is Constitutionally legal to go to public or private school strapped or that 10 year olds are granted the right to drive on public roads to get to school, is arguing the extremes. Not only that such ridiculous arguments damages and threatens our freedoms for their sheer absurdity. That's OK though, everyone has the "right" to make such arguments, and luckily the other side of the debate has the "right" to point out just how silly those arguments are.

To bootlegging, The Fed lost that effort in this state big time. There was a bootlegger up every third hollow until recently alot of counties went wet.
They are still there. They just dont produce as much because of limited demand.
LE ever made a dent in the bootleg trade here, though several officials went up the holler never to come back.

You are assuming the government follows its own constitution and laws and the courts would never let them get away from doing otherwise. There are ample examples of that not happening all around the country. Kentucky is not immune.

Florida, which was once considered a gun rights state, red flagged over 2,500 people in the first year they had the law. As far as I know, there were no successful constitutional challenges and no cops refused to enforce the orders. One of the people red flagged was an 8-year-old.
Florida ain't Ky . Ky was more gun friendly than FLA. before cc permits and is more gun friendly now.

Politicians like to stay in office. Red flag was proposed in the last legislative session and was totally ignored.

Ky state gov officials of either party are not stupid enough to pass such a law. And the do follow the ky constitution which is why gun regulation in this state only is written and applies to CC.
There are only two I stances of OC attempting to be regulated and I have never been able to find an instance of either being enforced.

Being a past LEO, I have never met a LEO outside of Louisville or Lex that would attempt to enforce such a law.
Not because of devotion to the RTKABA but the phrase " there are better jobs than willingly going on suicide missions that pay better."

Never be such a law passed in this state . Even if there was it would fall to legal challenge inside of a few months.

Ky legislators step very gingerly around the subject of guns except for cc carry. They rather not have their constitutional skirt tails lifted for all to see. "

" I have to wonder if WLP even cares about gun rights. Without the persistent threats to the RTKABA, the memberships and contributions would go down. He actually has a huge financial incentive to keep failing. Also, some of their big corporate contributors are gun companies and they are represented on the BOD. They are doing a big business with all the threats of gun control.

BTW, I have a good friend who is just now retiring as the head of one of the bigger gun distributors in the country. He said all the big manufacturers have designs and prototypes for post-gunmageddon legislation. Stuff that will be legal under almost any perceived scenario. So they will make a fortune selling off current stock as gun legislation is threatened and then they won't miss a beat with the new products they will introduce after legislation has passed.

So we are being played, not just by the NRA and WLP, but also by a lot of the companies we buy from. "

" I don't like TSA either and they are one of the reasons I no longer fly, but they are not the main reason. The service provided by the airlines now is so bad, I still wouldn't fly, even without TSA. Add to that, the tolerance of passengers who are dangerously disruptive makes it even worse. I maintain the impetus for people to drive rather than fly has more to do with the airlines than TSA.

I question the "test" Homeland Security did, described in the article. Those Red Team people knew all of TSA's procedures, strengths and weaknesses. They knew the technical limits of the technology. That would have been a huge advantage in being able to smuggle stuff past TSA. A real test would be to get some non-government people, say some smart college kids, and give them a task. Take a few weeks to study TSA. Find out everything you can about them online, even on the dark web, etc. Just like a terrorist would do. Then try to beat the system. I will bet they would not have been as successful.

The purpose of TSA was to prevent anything like 9/11 happening again. Nothing like 9/11 has happened again. That is a fact. You can attribute that to anything you want, but from the government's perspective, mission accomplished, albeit at a very high cost. I'm not saying it couldn't happen, but it hasn't, and it isn't because the bad guys gave up. TSA doesn't have to be perfect to accomplish its mission. It just has to be enough of a threat to disrupt a plan. I am not saying the system is good. TSA needs to step up its game and get better at what it does, and they need to get some customer service training to learn how to not be so obnoxious.

I can say from international trips I've taken, countries that have not suffered 9/11-type events have comparable security, some even more stringent, that take even longer and are just as irritating. They don't have to do that, except on flights headed to/from the US, but they do, at great expense. And 9/11-type events haven't happened in those countries either.

And now, what can the government do? They have painted themselves in a corner. If they even partially stand down TSA and something happens, heads will roll. Remember when they decided to allow micro pocket knives a few years ago? The backlash was so strong, they had to change their decision.

Everyone hates TSA, but they are still a "security blanket" for most travelers. If TSA was done away with, I will bet even more people would opt to drive instead of fly, not less. "

" The TSA is just one of the reasons I will never fly commercial again.

The TSA is a Waste of Money That Doesn't Save Lives and Might Actually Cost Them

As a test, Homeland Security officials tried to sneak guns and bombs through TSA checkpoints. They succeeded almost every time.

Few post-9/11 security measures have proven as enduring as the creation of the Transportation Security Administration, which effectively nationalized airport security and dramatically increased screening procedures on flights. In a matter of months, flights went from something you could arrive 30 minutes to an hour beforehand and be fine to something you needed to budget two hours for, what with the shoe removal and the liquids and the possibility of a random pat-down.

It's annoying, but it's also worse than annoying. The TSA's inefficiency isn't just aggravating and unnecessary; by pushing people to drive instead of fly, it's actively dangerous and costing lives. Less invasive private scanning would be considerably better.

We all took gym, not PE... And risked permanent injury with a pair of high top Ked's (only worn in gym) instead of having cross-training athletic shoes with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors. I can't recall any injuries, but they must have happened because we’re told us how much safer we are now.
I remember getting injured in gym. Playing dodgeball, running up to the center line to go after a ball. A senior who was the pitcher on the baseball team was skulking behind two other team mates, pretending that he didn't have a ball. I was suckered. (Now we call it lack of situational awareness.) BAM! Nailed me. That thing not only left a red mark, but it bruised. But, it was such a good hit that everyone clapped. And the gym teacher grinned. Something about "You'll watch next time."

Now, I hear that dodgeball isn't allowed for some reason or other. Wimps today. "
