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. "

The reason they are safe now is that they are not under pressure from immigrants both legal and illegal like many other States. California was republican not too long ago. You have to have your head in the sand not to realize the cause of their demise. Once the capitulation of the border States is complete the pressure on these Middle America States increases exponentially.

Any State that has at its core strong ties to the Democrat Party is at risk at some point. Like I have mentioned before, if your majority population has no problem with being a closed shop State, they will have no problem with removing the firearms if the Democrats ever claim complete control. Tyranny comes in many forms and should be resisted whenever possible. I hope that this becomes an issue in Kentucky and the people rise to the occasion and defend Liberty and kick the usurpers out.
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 "

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. "

" Actually there is no state law,in ky that prohibits a person who has mental illness , or a EPO on them from possession of, or purchasing a firearm. Only from getting a CCDW.
The same applies to being adjudicated by a court into a mental facility. Ky has no law barring possession of a firearm by such folks. Only that they cannot get a CCDW.

It will be extremely difficult to pass a red flag law here when there is no prohibitions at the state level from possessing a firearm except by a minor. "

" Odd that a committee is considering red flag laws when no such bill has been introduced by the legislature.
A committee cannot create a law on its own.

I've contacted my reps ending with a reminder for them to read the ky constitution which only grants the legislature thr authority to prevent concealed carry and nothing more.

This may also simply be a NRA scare tactic/plea for money, as to my knowledge no rep has introduced such a bill.
But better safe than sorry . "

Better question is why aren't citizens allowed to carry in schools.
Cops are parents yes. But plain citizens are parents too. And face the same circumstances an off duty cop does when that particular ball drops.

When the ordinary citizen can carry in schools then off duty or actually on duty cops should be able to. Not one second before. "

I could drive at 6. But my dad hadn't gotten down with cancer yet so I only drove between our three farms then.

When he got too weak to drive I was 8.
Mom couldn't drive. So I became the chauffeur to dr appointments, grocery store, feed store etc. The farthest I drove then was to Ashland to the hospital taking the old man to his dr appointments. Trip or two to Flemingsburg to sell off a few head of cattle .
And yes it was my right to do what was needed by my parents that I could do . Laws and regulations be hanged. LE nor politicians weren't going to come do it. Drive was only one aspect. I will give a couple of KSP troopers who pulled us over twice credit for staying out of the way.
After being told the situation by my dad. they simply told me to be careful. let us go and never stopped us again .

At 6 I regularly tended all the stock , around 100 head total. I could operate the old Farmall super C , harness and work a team of horses, shoot, and carried daily while doing what needed done.

Driving a car was no big deal.

"Regulations " have no standing in reality when one is doing what one must do. "

Back to the OP itself: PIP is not technicaly liabiity. It is under Part B of your contract, not Part A.

The term fine print was sarcasm.
I doubt my friend read the insurance contract very closely. He's likely just asked what their best full coverage plan was and said I'll take that. "

He carries full coverage with all the bells and whistles. His wife pulled out in front of a van . Crushed her pelvis. She passed 28 days later having never gotten out of the hospital of a fungal infection.

He went after Medicade, which again cost him alot of votes.
And the nail in the coffin was signing ky into a right to work state.

There aren't that many plants in ky but there is a heavy concentration of union pipe fitters , boiler makers , iron workers , carpenters , etc that work the building trades. He lost many votes there.

Honesty the only thing he did that gained him votes was being hard line RTKABA.

He sank his own ship with the other three issues. If he had only left two of the three alone he would be governor now by a big margin. "

Exactly. Ths liability portion covers injury to passengers in the other vehicle or a pedestrian.

PIP covers you and your passengers. But only ip to 10,000 in medical expenses per person if you caused the a accident. that's in the extra very fine print .

Also correct ky does not mandate full coverage. Depending on the bank you deal with they might if your borrowing money against the vehicle your buying.

Personally I dont believe the gov should mandating vehicle insurance . Or plates or DL.

All of that is simply illegal revenue generation. JMO. "

I carry liability insurance that covers the other person' and PIP coverage.
I dont carry full coverage for two reasons. One my truck is a 2006 model and it makes no se sense to pay out enough anually on full coverage to buy the same truck.

I carry minimum PIP . Because of a little known fact of vehicle insurance in ky. No matter liability or full coverage if you are at fault your PIP insurance will only pay up to 10,000 bucks. Regardless what the policy calls for. "

It really is simple, if you are driving on public roads with no insurance and no ability to pay for any damage that you cause, you are a freeloader. If caught you should lose the right to operate a vehicle on the public roads, and if caught doing so more than once, you should go to jail. How we get to that I don't care just as long as we do, and I don't care how punitive it is.
Try this on. You are a legal American. You work 6 days a week , and you carry liability insurance. Your child gets seriously I'll. Now you have the choice to have enough gas to get back and forth to doc appointments, meds , etc. Or pay for liability insurance on your vehicle.

" My point is, anytime gov requires a citizen to buy something (which it should not and IMO isn't empowered to do) the cost of that service or product is going to go as high as the wealthier part of the market will bear.

Which puts it out of reach for lower income folks.

Bamy care is a prime example of gov requiring something it has no authority to require and the impact of that.

May not feel the same as the car insurance scam but there is no difference.

That in turn puts car insurance out of financial reach for alot of folks, I including working folks working jobs that pay low wages. You know those jobs they say only illegals will take.

I am fine with doing away with license and insurance requirements if we punish every driver who is responsible for the accidents they cause that they can't cover the financial costs for, punish every driver who drives reckless or drunk and causes harm or damage to an innocent, and punish every criminal who is convicted of using a firearm or weapon in a violent crime on an innocent with a life or death sentence.



You are right, we continually lose our rights and freedoms to court decrees because so many people think their rights have "no" responsibilities that go along with them, and these people abuse the society they live in.



Not that long ago people who molested, raped, stole horses, and murdered innocents were caught, tried, and convicted and hung within a few months. Now we have "people" who turn these scum loose because of crowded prisons and some who lobby to arm them when they are released.

It is a shame how far away we are from our Founders creation because of those who refuse to live within this society while respecting the rights of others, and the apologists who make excuses for these vermin by releasing them back on society and refusing to make them responsible for the damages they cause.



All because of their desire to force our society into a civil war and allow the real authoritarians to take over the reins of the government.


When an overwhelming majority can read and understand the following quotes and then live by them, will we be able to live without laws that intrude on our lives. It is not going to happen in this edition of human existence.

My personal favorites are the two in bold. The society that exists is always the people's fault.

“We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.”
― Ronald Reagan

“Human rights' are a fine thing, but how can we make ourselves sure that our rights do not expand at the expense of the rights of others. A society with unlimited rights is incapable of standing to adversity. If we do not wish to be ruled by a coercive authority, then each of us must rein himself in...A stable society is achieved not by balancing opposing forces but by conscious self-limitation: by the principle that we are always duty-bound to defer to the sense of moral justice.”
― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, Rebuilding Russia: Reflections and Tentative Proposals

“No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.”
― Stanisław Jerzy Lec


Socialist ideology rationalizes individual failure by laying it at the feet of the system itself, rather than connecting it with its proximate cause, the individual.”
― Michael Rectenwald, Springtime for Snowflakes: Social Justice and Its Postmodern Parentage

“Only the individual can ensure the rights and equality in the infinite complexity of the human society, not some government or institution.”
― Abhijit Naskar, Lives to Serve Before I Sleep

“Personal responsibility leads to national transformation.”
― Sunday Adelaja, The Mountain of Ignorance

In my state more people were insured before that nanny law was passed than after. Why? They could afford to be.

Once that ridiculous law was passed here vehicle insurance costs went through the roof and still are .

Why not? Captive consumers forced by gov to buy their product at any price. Socialism at its finest.

Trouble is not everyone could or can afford even a basic liability policy. So , 1 in 10 aren't insured anyway. "

With all the other stuff going on, it barely rises to worth being noticed? Does anyone here belong to an anti-auto-liability insurance group? Have you ever written your representatives about repealing the requirement for liability insurance?
  • If you talk to an honest, (meaning not commissioned sales) insurance expert, like with USAA, you will find out that state required auto liability insurance is woefully inadequate. Any smart car owner would carry a lot more, because with the minimum, a suit could wipe you out financially and even good drivers can get in accidents that can lead to that. It's the way things are. So the idea that the gov't requires you to have a bare minimum of something you should have more of if you had two brains to rub together is a non-issue for me. I carry more insurance than the law requires or my own accord, so the gov't is not interfering with me at all.
  • Whether anyone likes it or not, the courts have held, and COTUS does not contradict, that driving is a privilege and can be regulated. You can say the courts are wrong, but your legal judgement is nothing more than an opinion and you can't say that is not settled law for the moment. I think it's interesting when someone says, "We pay for the roads, so there should be no restriction on using them." Let's play that out: We pay for the runways at our civic airports. Should there be no restriction on using them to take off and land an airplane? No pilot's licenses? I don't think so! Yet the driving proposition is statistically more hazardous.

The courts have opinions. In reality no more correct than anyone else's opinion. And most times less so because courts are political agenda,driven. Usually opining according to that political agenda rather than COTUS.

To many Americans have no problem with being taxed and regulated on the king's roads as it was before this nation was founded. "

"Cliff Gilley, Studied Constitutional Law at Seattle University
No; there is no right to drive a car enumerated in the Constitution, nor is there an identified right that driving a car implicates, so there is no right upon which the States infringe in regulating the activity."

Now if you are talking about driving a car on private property you do not have to have a drivers license or insurance to do so, but you open yourself up to some potentially devastating liability lawsuits.

No insult intended, but that is ALL nothing but state and federal court legalese gobility gook designed to excuse gov over reach.

Simple as that.

My original point , poorly made I admit , is at its core there is no difference in being forced by the gov to buy health insurance and being forced to buy vehicle liability insurance. "

And honestly if the GOP and Bevin hadn't tried to sneak what they couldn't get passed on it's own, thru by attaching it to a sewage bill, I dont think it would have hurt him as much, or that the republican house members that lost office , including my own may have stayed in office.

As far as Medicade , his stance on Medicade from e orgone I've spoken too leading up to the election and after was one of the two major reasons he lost.

He only ran as close a race as he did because Andy Beshere has spent a few years proving he's an idiot, and Bevins support of the RTKABA..

When you tell folks who depend on Medicade for life preserving medicines , care etc , that your going to cut
Medicarde your gonna lose in this state.
Do away with some goofball programs ky has like KASPER and others and the money is there for medicade.

" Yesterday 23 counties over rode 93 counties and tossed Bevin out.

I voted for him because of his hard RTKABA stand like most who did vote for him. But that he would lose was a foregone conclusion.

He did while he was in office the three of four things guaranteed to make him lose.

1. He tried to rape the teachers pension fund which he may have got by with . But when he couldn't get passed he had republicans attach that bill to a sewage bill.
That cost some house Republicans to be ousted.
Strike 1

Strike 2. He tried to cut Medicade in a state where alot of good folks , republicans too. have to have it to get even basic health care. That would likely have cost his office ty itself


Strike 3, he led the head to g charge over the cliff and made Ky a heavy union state in the building trades into a right to work state a finished cutting his own throat.

He was fine when he told folks if they wanted more gun control the needed to move to another state that had it because it wasnt happening here.

But he couldn't leave well enough alone .

Probably the GOP in ky has cut it's own throat also going along with him and will lose control of the legislature as the next elections happen.

Shame too. But they do it every single time they manage to gain power.

There's also a major problem when way less than a third of the state controls an election , but that's another thread. "

" Some of you may have read my review of the 2nd gen DB9 several months ago.

The little beast has remained flawless through approx 1000 rds to date. 100 percent reliable.

I had never carried it as a primary defensive gun due to its 7 rd capacity and tiny size, always used it as a BUG.

Recently I've been forced by circumstance to often be where leaving isn't an option and getting made carrying a gun is guaranteed is be asked to leave. Deep concealment at these,facilities is absolutely nessacary. Even pocket carry is to obvious.

During this time the little pistol has taken on the role of primary and causing me to be very thankful I own it.

Fitted with a Clip draw it snuggles in my waist band my belt practically hiding the entire pistol. Letting me be where even my sr9c might get noticed.

Not wanting to start a,caliber war , but personally I do not trust 380. The DB9 is allowing me to remained armed where even a j frame couldnt while being 13 rds of 9mm Critical Defence to the party counting my spare mag totally undetected.


Back at the car the sr9c takes over as primary but now that I'm having to go where the going is tight concerning carry, the little rattlesnake has been a Godsend.

If anyone neededs more firepower than a jframe, where even pocket carry won't cut it, the DB9 fitted with the Clipdraw is just the ticket. "

Ghost1958 created the thread Should armed citizen have immunity if engaging active shooter.?.
" One of the big reasons many armed citizens state as a reason they would not engage an active shooter is the risk of criminal and / or civil prosecution.

IMO an armed citizen who engages an active shooter should have absolute immunity from arrest, detainment, surrender of weapon , and criminal prosecution of civil action.

The reality is a situation where a madman slaughtering innocents cannot be made any worse by armed citizens engaging him.
The active shooter is going to continue killing until he either runs out of ammo, runs out of victims, or is engaged by a armed citizen or citizens and stopped or self destructs.

An armed citizen , even if he should inadvertently cause collateral damage to someone is not making the situation worse as the innocent that close to the active shooter struck by him would have been shot by the active shooter anyway.

Police are rarely around when active shooters strike and even more rarely act in time to make any difference in body count, so they really don't figure into the situation. Other than to frog march survivors past their mrap and swat team with their hands up .

IMHO any armed citizen who attempts to engage and stop an active shooter should have total immunity from arrest, detainment, surrender of weapon, criminal prosecution and civil action. PERIOD
And all states laws should be changed to grant that that absolute immunity. "

Ghost1958 created the thread The Clip Draw.
" I was gifted one of the universal Clip Draws several days ago.

I put it on my DiamondBack db9.

Now I know some are going to object the clip draw is unsafe, a ND waiting to happen , etc, so I put these claims to the test.

For those unfamiliar the DB 9 had no safety at all.

No external safety nor even the little Glock like trigger blade . It's simply pull the trigger and bang.

Mine has a trigger pull slightly lighter than a Glock.

Being fond of my leg, I carried the DB9 IWB using only the clip draw with no round in the chamber for several days to see if the trivger could be inadvertently pulled.

Mowed lawn , weed eated, worked on the boat, crawled around,on the ground checking brake shoes, and a bunch of other tasks.


Nothing. The pistol remained quietly resting IWB with no activating of the trigger.

My body on one side and my jeans on the other along with my belt acted as a holster preventing anything from getting to the trigger.

In order for the thing to fire I would have to grow a finger on my hip.

It's a very slim , light , and safe method of carry ,at least for a small pistol like the Db9 as a BUG or if very deep concealment is needed. "

Ghost1958 created the thread Never get too comfortable.
" With a person even though you've known them well for years.

I made this mistake , luckily my family didn't pay for my mistake this time.

A few years ago, when I was President of GMMCC, I met a young man who was interested in joining .

He was younger by 20 years than me, he rode his own bike, put in the application, did his time hanging around the group, helping out together charity events, and was voted in.

He even stayed at my house for a couple of weeks because, he said, of trouble at home with an uncle.

That was a lie. Actually the guy would rather climb a tree upside down than tell the truth.

Still, he was a decent member, good to do his share etc.

He carried a revolver, but I thought nothing of that as almost every member did and does , as well as the general public here.

At no time did he ever show a temper, even when caught in one of his many tall tales.

I saw him almost daily for two years.
Absolutely , I would have bet , a particularly non violent person , even when pushed.
I wouldn't have trusted him to have my back , but saw no danger in him.

Long story shortened , he met a girl , got married dropped his patch and resigned .
That was four years ago.



A few months ago , the man I let crash at our house, shot and killed his wife's 80 yr old grandpa, who he and his wife lived with, in front of her and the old man's wife as he sat in his chair.

Arrested and charged with murder, a few weeks ago he was charged with attempting to hire the troopers who arrested him, and the old man's wife ,killed.

I knew, rode with, and worked side by side with this cat for several years in GMMCC. Heck we even shot together several times. Never saw the first hint of any danger to him.

Just goes to show, there's no knowing of predicting what an individual may do. "

" Not really but close.
For about a month id been driving a friend to see his wife at UK hospital , using his car.

We went everyday came back every nite until she passed.

His car is a Caddilac equipped with SUPER Cruise.
Which means when set the car is totally self driving.
Steers itself, slows for slower vehicles in front of it, slows for curves blends in with traffic speed etc.

It also flashed pedestrian warnings if some is walking across the road in front of it.

Equipped with thermal night vision that allows you to see deer , people, dogs etc from up to over a mile away.
If the driver begins to nod off the seat shakes, red lights flash and a voice warns that super cruise will be disengaged. Same if the driver looks away from the road for to long.

It is limited to interstates.

The one I was driving would also disengage if the sun shown thru the drivers window at just the right angle to blind the small sensor that watched the driver.

All in all a pretty amazing car to drive, ehhhh, or sit and watch drive itself lol. "

Ghost1958 created the thread This begining to be a tiny bit frightening..
" Trump announced their would be tanks at the Independence Day celebration.
"The new Abrams tank and the NEW Sherman Tank.
New Sherman tank? Sherman's are WW2 tanks.



Then he makes this grand declaration during the celebration speaking of our revolution against Brits and our soldiers actions to win that war.
Trump
"“Our army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do ..." .

Took over the Airports? "

" Yep he's pro gun alright.
So far he hasn't seen a anti 2a idea he down like.

If someone else doesn't come up with you can depend on him too.

Banned bump stocks now looking into banning silencers.

Ghost1958 created the thread Do you want restrictions on your RTKABA?.
" I've grown curious over time as on every gun forum there are always a few that will argue for restrictions on the RTKABA. Even though the 2A prohibits any.

Hence the musical question, understanding that any restrictions could in the future apply to you, do you honestly want your RTKABA restricted ,or eliminated? "

Ghost1958 created the thread 25 yard and up club..
" Some time ago I think PEF started a similar thread that ran for a good while on another forum I think.

Anyway. This thread is for shooting attempts ,off hand , no warmup, at distances of 25yrds min.

Target is based on FBI new smaller bottle target.

10 rds fired off hand , cold,. 7 hits of 10 fired.

Attachment 22111

Hope this thread catches on. SD situations don't always happen at 7 yards. "

" Totally serious request. The NRA, GOA, etc and tons of gun owners constantly speak of defending the 2A and the RTKABA.

Name a place in this nation where the RTKABA exists. "

" Actually should never have been charged.

If someone shoots at you, LE or not, you have the right to fire back.

Ghost1958 created the thread Been retraining a skill I'd abandoned..
" Years ago I was taught the CAR [center axis relock] form of pistol tactics.

Over the years I gradually just stopped using it or practicing it. My need to clear buildings etc was over and I frankly got lazy 8 guess.

Now I know some will boo hiss at CAR.
And it's not the be all end all for all situations. Or even most. But it at least to me is worth my resharpening as a skill for close quarters and speed.

No room to go into the actual technique here but JMO any skill that allows 3 shot groups at speed that I can cover with my thump at 10 yrds while keeping my pistol close to me and quick multiple target aquistion is probably worth my repracticing again as I age. "
