Ya,know I drove that car from here to Lexington and back 7 days, a week for 28 days and I didn't know until today it will parrell park itsel!

Mine is,a 06 f150. And it has to many sensors and computer crap on it to suit me.
Alas my 86 f150 frame broke in half 3 yrs ago so trading was sort of forced on me. "

" 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. "

" Put in reality here, the guy who started this has all almost right from the beginning, said it was not a serious idea , just a internet stunt to gin up interest in UFOs .

But let's also get real in the other sense. If 100,000 determined people rushed area 51 , the base is as,good as,over run. Period.


300,000. Anyone please to cite where 300,000 souls stormed any single military base anywhere that didn't overrun it.

These folks aren't some liberal conspiracy. There are folks from every walk of life.

Nobody is going to storm area 51. However if even 500 were too, and 100 were killed over protecting a domestic military base you can kiss whatever President that allowed it, and the party in power goodbye.
Slaughters of American citizens by gov forces reached the end of tolerance with Waco and the murder of Lavoy Finicum. "

You don't run the military on the whims of the people, there are enough mistakes when it is run on the whims of the government.

Anyone who is up on current affairs that expects the American people (as currently constituted) to be able to keep a secret or care about America is not being realistic. The government should follow the COTUS and there is nothing there that demands total clarity for every action of government. That would be dangerous and unnecessary for the Country.

A large portion of the population only cares about things that have nothing to do with how they are governed. This is one of them.

I believe that "if" the government had proof of alien visitors they would try to keep it secret for many reasons. Mass panic for one, the effort by foreign governments to seek new technology for nefarious purposes for another. Another would be the potential for religions across the world to collapse and cause riots around the world. I would also add that any alien lifeforms that have conquered interstellar travel would pose an instantaneous threat to the survival of our world if they were given reason to do so, and perhaps they demanded that secrecy.

Personally I trust our government more than I trust the slightly over 50% who usually vote for Democrats and my worst nightmare is that when the aliens make themselves known they will identify AOC as their emissary they have planted among us.

Certainly killing these crazed lunatics would be a tragedy for the country and probably start a civil war but a few hundred thousand crossing the open desert to a well defended position against our military backed by massive air power, I see no problem. Even if successful I see the other half of the country rising to the defense of the military.

Nothing would surprise me anymore so I just continue to hope I will continue to live in some form of reality, but the hope is--------fleeting.
If you trust the gov, after being daily shown you can't for many decades , on almost a weekly basis , reality isn't where your living.

The Fed is the biggest threat to our constitution and liberty that we face, regardless who the president is. "

Think back to Kent state. Waco. Bundy ranch, and the national reaction to each. And those,are,small spuds,to killing 300,000 Americans in one fell swoop even if our military was capable of doing that or would domestically.

Nope . It's a internet stunt as plainly stated .

Acess is one thing. Knowing what our gov is up too is another. We should absolutely know what the gov is doing . Besides removing our rights, claiming land it's prohibited to have and confiscating our money and property if the whim strikes it, which we all already know.
The government was created by the people and can't be held accountable by the people if it's allowed to hide its activities.

Besides the originator of this idea has posted repeatedly it's not serious and simply an internet stunt.

But. As,far as gunning down 300,000 even unarmed determined people, area 51 would be overrun in minutes. As would any other military base in the country. They are simply not ready to repel that number of attackers on domestic soil.

Assuming the gov could get the military guarding the place to murder 300000 of their fellow Americans all at once to protect a weird military base.
And the gov that permitted the gunning down of 300,000 American citizens for any reason would frankly have seen it's last day in power. "

I will take this moment to assure you that at no time in any of my posts do I mean to imply that your support of the 2nd Amendment is what I disagree with or question. You are one of the most ardent and honest supporters of this treasured freedom that I have ever conversed with and I would be perfectly happy with your vision of this freedom (other than violent felon in possession). We only disagree on the method and perhaps some on the limits of securing this right. I, like you, hope bloodshed can be avoided while securing our freedom with the right to be armed.

Thank you.

My strong support of the right to keep and bear arms is based on my belief that all of our rights vanish shortly after the armed citizenry is regulated to a point of ineffectual weakness.

All our rights were secured by weapons to start with.

And will be removed if gun owners allow themselves to be regulated into defenselessnes.

There are those who think the RTKABA does not hold out gov back from blatantly becoming a dictator ship.

But . Even the most blustry let's take all the guns talking heads still have that worrisome thought in the back of their mind. That they are contemplating trying to take firearms away from a citizenry more heavily armed than most nations armies.

And trying to do it with a paid Fed force fighting for a paycheck vs Americans fighting for their freedom and rights.

At that point the armed felon is the enemy of my enemy and therefore my friend.

Anyway it's always good debating with you.

Apologies to Jean for running off into the weeds some.

On topic . There is only one way to meet violence and that is responding with greater and overwhelming violence in return. "

There are bad LE officers no doubt, and the difficulty and outcome of their job amplifies the incidents that go wrong. However I realize that the LE community "as a whole", the organization, the administration, the boots on the ground, seek to do what they were designed to do, protect the citizenry, and enforce the laws fairly while surviving the day. They are necessary to a nation of laws as put forth by the COTUS.

Certainly the owners of large businesses took advantage of private property laws to abuse those who worked for them and the police helped them do so by enforcing those laws. That is why we had laws passed that protected workers by insuring their rights to organize. The unions grew in power and corrected many of those abuses and were critically important to industrial growth. However "power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely", both in LE and unions. So the unions consolidated their power, forced the passing of unConstitutional laws such as closed shop, and gained control of the Democrat Party. This absolute power corrupted them absolutely.

Law enforcement is a necessity to a nation of laws, unions were a wakeup for those who thought they were above the law. The right to organize is and should be protected. The right to force union membership as a requirement to be able to work is an absolute power that corrupted unions absolutely.



This is not accurate though it is often repeated by union management. The Republican party does not seek to destroy unions but it does seek to stop them from using coercion and intimidation to force membership and tacit support for the Democrat party. If a union can't attract members through the offering of their benefits then perhaps they have outlived their usefulness.

I was president of our local union for a short period of time. During that time we were approached by a national union (OCAW) to join their ranks for better pay and working conditions. We did so and found that we were already making equal pay with their union workers and our working conditions did not change. The OCAW called us out on strike immediately and used us to try and force company concessions. The company went to arbitration over the move to the OCAW and won, so we were then without a union and our pay and benefits did not suffer at all.

Companies have found it is cheaper to provide a compatible wage and better (and safer) working conditions rather than to try and go back to the days of the robber barons. Public traded companies are now partially owned by many blue collar workers from different companies thanks to the better pension/stock plans that these companies offer.

I did not finish my college education and worked in the oilfields in a technical job and retired a millionaire because I took the responsibility on myself to do so. My Dad worked in the oilfields during the height of power for the unions and retired on his SS. He taught me to take responsibility on myself for my wellbeing and not rely on others to do it for me, be it the government or unions. And though he did not manage to save enough to do so himself, he sucked it up and scrabbled through his last years living off his SS and never once asked for anything more than what he was owed.

We owe the unions for forcing the robber barons to wake up and provide livable wages and better working conditions. That was why they were created and that was what they accomplished and I thank them for it. However, I do not owe them my freedom to choose whether to belong to a union, or to put my money into the pockets of some corrupt fat-cat union boss, or worse yet into the coffers of the anti-gun Democratic party. This is what unions represent now in my opinion.

I will never support being forced by the government into pledging my loyalty or money to an organization that has become dedicated to taking that money for the purpose of inflating the wealth and power of some union boss who pledges it to a political party I despise. Besides unions are the ultimate majority rule organization and I thought we agreed that majority rule to circumvent the COTUS and allow unConstitutional laws was not legal.



There is no doubt that we agree on this, but we simply disagree on how best to accomplish it. We have a different view on what is the reality of the situation as it exists today. I believe there are many Conservative members of the Republican party that will support the 2nd Amendment but there are few members of Congress who will support it with no restrictions, or as I describe it---in its purity. We will never be allowed to create our own nuclear bombs or drive fully armed tanks up and down the highways. There is very little support among Congress or among the people for repealing the NFA of 33-34 or the GCA of 68 either. So I support those who indicate they will stop the bleeding, and oppose those who say they will open our arteries. There is no path that I see that can be supported by voting for a Democrat, directly or indirectly, other than the path of violence.

I believe civil war becomes much more likely if Democrats are elected and I am afraid that there are many who actually hope that comes about. I prefer to try and elect the people and the party that I believe will stop that tragedy or at least slow it down. If I have to choose, I hope the left starts that conflagration rather than Conservatives and I feel that is more likely to be the case if Republicans are in control. The Democrats if given the power will try and force confiscation which will probably insure that the start of this war will be blamed on Conservatives and gun owners.

That is my reasoning only and is just my opinion.

I had a long post prepared but tossed it for this condensed version, hope it makes sense.

It is a very coherent easily understood post.
And enlighting on why you have the opinions you have also.

I disagree with much of it but it is a well written post.

Better than I could ever form a post. "

Advocating for union creation by employees of the Company is perfectly legal as it should be. Republicans are not against that. The contention by Republicans is that when the unions can force employees to join and pay dues which are given to the party that will support this unConstitutional act is wrong. Thanks to a recent ruling it has indeed been done away with.

I am for the right-to-work and I also believe a union should not be forced to represent those who are not in the union. The fact is unions have a history of intimidation and corruption beyond that of most organizations and for all of the good they have accomplished they have been responsible for a lot of bad as well.

So has LE . But gov hasnt tried to outlaw them. Fact is the first police forced,formed weren't paid by a city gov but by big business in the city to break up efforts to unionize.

The people that are dedicated to the Democrats are people who seem to value what they can get for doing so, more than they value their freedoms.
I worked union for many years. Most of the people I worked with were what you would call conservative.
Many voted republican individually.
Those that didn't and the union leadership could hardly be expected to support the party that wants to destroy them.
I was in the building trades. Never worked in a factory with one of those little counterfeit in house unions.
Right to work does two things. Half the pay and twice the employees injuries.

We will see a steady flow if the Democrats secure power in all three branches just as we have in the past (probably worse given the out-of-the-closet socialists in the Democrat party) and our rights will be washed away over time as the population sits on their collective butts. It is always the peoples fault when their rights are rescinded.
This last part I agree with.
Gun owners need to get off their butts , get on the same page as the 2A AS WRITTEN , and actively demand the repeal of all gun regulation as unconstitutional.
That will likely never happen either except in individual states , maybe.
The moment the Fed believes it can outlaw firearms and have a country left worth governing, it will try it, no matter which major party is in power.

Let us hope they never become so stupid and have to be shown the folly of their ways. "

The anti gun side was doing all that long before Trump, hasn't stopped since Trump, and will go on after Trump .

The are only two ways that stops. SCOTUS rules all gun regulation unconstitutional, or gov gets so dirt dumb it pushes gun control to far and triggers a war.

Heard the same rhetoric from every Country mentioned which have banned them. Heard the same words from the ROT and their band of usurpers. Heard the same tough talk when Clinton banned the sale of ARs and the ban talk gets louder all of the time thanks to the Democrats. Yes it will be much harder in the US thanks to the COTUS but if this slide to socialism continues there will be a tipping point, I am not sure it can be reversed.



Yes, it is the fault of the people. No doubt every mass killing brings more pressure on both parties and more people are constantly being convinced it is the gun's fault. They are stupid sheep and eventually, in my opinion, enough will be converted to do away with the RTKAB. May take 10 or 20 or even 50 years but is almost surely going to happen because the majority of the people do stupid stuff. For instance many gun owners, even you, support closed shop which is unConstitutional, many gun owners support abortion which clearly deprives the unborn of their natural rights, many gun owners support socialism and fight private ownership of business and want the government to take over control----pure socialism and the end stage is communism, and yes many gun owners support the rights of violent ex-cons to regain their natural rights at the expense of society while condemning the unborn (and now even the born) to a death without the chance for life.



No doubt both parties have bent their knees to get elected or to stay elected, but if you you can't see the difference between the 2 parties you are blinded by your desire to see the government force union conscription on the people, you seem to think you can have it both ways, use the government to force people to pay union dues to feed the Democrats and then use the people to force government to back off on gun control. Politics does not work that way.

Trump banned bump stocks, floated the idea of preemptive red flag laws and supported a bill (FixNics) that half the gun owners supported in its early rendition. It did some good things that hat you refuse to see because of the bad parts that were added. I understand why many lost their support for it but I also understand some of the things it tried to remedy. Compare that to the Democrats, "who have passed every major federal gun control legislation" in modern history while they were in power.

I find it strange you support using the government to force me to belong to a union so they can force me to give money to the Democrats before I can work in your state. If there is no ability within a person to see that a government who forces me to pay union dues to the Democratic party, can almost certainly force me to give up my RTKAB, there is no hope they will see my point.



Thank the Civil war for that, the racist Democrats wanted to prevent blacks from owning guns so they banned them and ignored the law when a white man had one.

I definitely think the possibility of armed revolt is there if the government passes a ban and starts going house-to-house. As I said they won't do that, they aren't that stupid. They will do what they have been doing for the last 86 years, pass laws, let them sink in for a while, ban certain weapons let that sink in, pass more draconian laws let that sink in, etc., all done while Democrats were in power.

They are already doing it. States are doing it as well, usually Democrat States. Why did you get a CCL? Probably the same reason I did, because it was the law and yes I knew it was an infringement but I didn't see many people getting shot over resisting.



Once enough of the people want what their neighbor has or thinks the government can force their will on the few remaining holdouts they will put the few that stood up at the Bundy ranch down with the same ease that they would shoot stray dogs. Would you like me to post the numbers of dead under Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot? The only things that stand in their way is that the Military in our Country would not stand for it as of today, and the COTUS as written prevents it (as of now). But that is the way nations whose people embrace the idea of government being their salvation and path to forcing their majority ideas onto everyone, always wind up. It is always the people's fault when it ends that way.

The desire may be there in both parties but there is a difference, one party demands expansion of gun control now, and one party wants to stem the tide or hold what they have. I know which party is the worst for the RTKAB, it is provable within our history, you have ulterior motives that I don't have. I think that when the government seeks power not afforded them in the COTUS, be it forced gun confiscation or forced conscription to the Democrat party by not allowing the people to work unless they belong to a union that pays homage to the Democrats, these are dogs of the same breed. Until you see the fallacy of this position you will never understand my point.



All of this my opinion formed on years of reading the hard work of some great historians who came to the same conclusions I have. Doesn't make them right, but these beliefs aren't going to change no matter how many times we have this discussion. You responded to my post which was not directed at you so I assume you seek to have the discussion again.

I have given you the courtesy of acknowledging that I am not going to change your mind and I respond only to make sure that both sides of the discussion are heard, I would bet that few read these posts since they are just rehashed material from past discussions but I am game as long as I can find the time.

Just a quick clarifying of my position on unions.

I don't support any gov state or Fed being involved at all.

But. If employees of a business or working in the building trades ban together to force a,fair wage etc that's between them and the business. The gov should not be involved at all.

And I gota ccdw not because of any law in my own state, but because of the idiot laws in some other states I had no choice but to enter. "

When everyone of these abuses receive the same type of support that the Bundy’s got perhaps it will be delayed for awhile, but until that happens they will just keep chipping away, putting people in jail, letting the generation be filled with the snowflakes as the older people die off. It will probably happen no matter who is elected but as far as I am concerned it will happen faster with national socialist Democrats if they achieve power.

According to you the freedom is already gone and I basically agree with that. I don’t see armed resistance. Is everyone just waiting until they come to their door? Are they waiting for them to come to their door and take their bump stocks, machine guns, ARs? If they are I believe it will be too late.
Its,never to late.
Your pet infringement, free felons banned from owning guns is a total flop. They arm themselves at will, carry at will regardless of any gov proclamation.

Putting ink to paper to ban firearms and enforcing that ban are universes apart.

Why do the majority of people vote for the party that seeks to disarm them, at least more than any other party seeks to do so? My opinion———the majority of people love the government giving them freebies more than they love their freedom to be armed. As long as the government lets them watch their reality shows they are happy.

The fault always lies at the feet of the people.
Because the conservatives always shoot themselves,in the foot with their fiscal , kill unions, privatize everything talk .
The Dems are just as,bad but on the other end of the scale.

And both will initiate and pass,unconstitutional gun regulation when they think they can without losing power.

No its,not the fault of the people.
Case in point. RTKABA wise Trump lied thru his teeth.
So the people are,supposed to do what? About all the option one has anymore is flip a,coin .
We can't believe either party.

You live in a,state where carrying a handgun at all is a relatively new permission. Banned for what 100 yrs?

So I understand that you can't visualize a point where many if not most gun owners will take up arms and say come get em.

Personally I think nation wide it'll take some gov idiot passing a national ban on fire arms.

Which the states would be constiutionally able to ignore and not enforce. Which leaves the Fed who have no where near,the manpower nor the guts to try to enforce. As,shown at Bundy ranch.

My own state under either party would not even attempt to enforce such a ban .

More states in flyover country will do the same, while others,will bow.

Which is why ,though the desire to disarm Americans is there in both parties, neither seriously considers a,national ban as possible.

As they say the streets would run red. "

" I do not have the number as the proponents are hush hush.

Bottom line the bill would make campus carry OC, legal by statute.

Short and sweet.
Any bill that requires a permit to OC anywhere violates the Ky constitution .
The General Assembly is granted only authority to prevent CC . That's it and that's all.

Any permit requirement to OC anywhere in ky is outside the scope of legislative power.

The bill is an attempt to do an end run around the ky constitution and attempt to set precedence of permitting OC .

I urge every ky gun owner to call their reps and remind them they have no constitutional authority to pass such a requirement for OC in ky.

Thanks. "

Ghost1958 created the thread Lot of gun bills being proposed in KY..
" One very good one and several "pro gun " bills being put forth by republicans who are either wolves in sheep's clothing or simply ignorant.

One example is the campus carry bill.
Another is the bill I posted put forth by Rep Goforth .

IMHO any bill proposed in KY that requires a permit to OC ANYWHERE should be opposed.

OC has needed nothing since statehood.
The KY constitution gives no authority to the general assembly to regulate OC in anyway.

Any bill like the campus carry bill, or Goforths bill that makes a permit nessacary to carry openly at any location in this state is an end run around the KY constitution and an effort to set precedence that the atate can regulate OC by requiring a permit.

These bills sound great until one reads them enough to see the connection being made.

Read these proposed bills carefully.

The only one I've seen so far that's a honest to goodness pro gun bill is the "constitutional carry "bill that repeals the requirement for concealed carry permits in KY. "

" Help! Lol.

I've taken a friends Marlin model 60/99 22 rifle to repair and I'm stumped.

He took it apart to clean it, removed the action and it fell apart. He put it back in but had pieces reversed etc.

I brought it home put everything back in correctly but it still has a problem.

It feeds, ejects, fine. Pulling the bolt cocks the hammer. And I can trip it to fire by gentle pressure with my finger on the sear.

However when I put the stock back on it acts like the trigger isn't touching anything. Won't reset, nor trip the hammer. Just pulls and nothing.

I have noticed if I pull it very hard with the stock on but the mounting screws not in pulling the trigger hard seems to move the action barrel assembly forward a tiny bit.

So I lay this maddening problem here at the source of all firearm wisdom. "
