j/k..Seriously, what is a "law-abiding citizen"? A criminal that once got a Felony charge for theft when they were 20 years old and have led a perfect life since then and cannot own a firearm because of stupid laws? Or is it the regular folks that routinely drive 10 miles over the speed limit, breaking the law everyday?

Is it the person that got a felony charge on them 30 years ago for tax evasion, but has otherwise led an honest life? Or is it the person that does not stop at stop signs all the time?

Just curious what your take on a law-abiding citizen is (or the NRA's take on it)

BTW: The traffic offenders I mentioned are a much larger threat to the safety of society and the risk of having insurance rates raised for everyone than the other two examples I gave.

People who have never been convicted of a violent felony. "

I'm just guessing here but maybe he means that law breakers and people who have proven themselves to be a threat to others will not be protected. All law abiding citizens will enjoy the full protection of the 2A. Pretty much the way it is right now. "

jeanlouise created the thread 3 Rice Cookers found in NYC.
" Someone being cute or a threat of future action? Obviously whoever did this knows the significance of the rice cooker.

I bet they find who did it because of all the cameras in NYC, especially in public transportation.

It's not against the law to leave an empty rice cooker on a platform though, so if they're caught probably no charges will be filed.

https://abcnews.go.com/US/york-city-...ry?id=65011378


From the link:

"What was originally thought to be suspicious packages turned out to be a pair of pressure cookers left in the subway station.

The MTA said to expect delays and changes to service were on the 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, J and Z lines due to the investigation."

Can't imagine that the guards, themselves, would have access to controls to switch off/on cameras in the place. If only to guard against this sort of malfeasance (the "sleeping" at minimum).

Questions beget more questions. Hopefully some answers will start coming 'round the bend. But, as "connected" as this guy was it might be a hard slog. Lots of competing agendas, if nothing else.
It reminds me of of the camera malfunction in the corridor of the Las Vegas shooter.

Someone turned those cameras off and when they find that person we may have some answers. "

Maybe he killed himself in a sudden window of opportunity or maybe the Clintons and/or their minions got to him again.

I just hope they have enough hard evidence to charge a lot of the others with Pedophilia. "

I'm not trying to argue . Just don't see the reasoning behind that thinking.

We know he banned bump stocks single handedly, and signed fix nics.

How,does one come to the conclusion he wants the opposite of what he says , when he's proven to be anti gun?

Ghost, it's just a gut feeling from watching Trump deal with foreign leaders and how he handles the Left here at home.

IF he does push to enact Red Flag Laws and they are actually enacted, then I'm wrong. "

I say that politics is, and always has been, a game of outwitting the opponent. If this is the way Trump chooses to play the game to accomplish what he wants in the end...so be it. The final goal of "no Red Flag Laws" is what he's shooting for.

" Several people have referenced "The Minority Report", the movie about the "pre-crime unit" that could stop crime before it happened by being able to see into the future.

That whole thing fell apart when a corrupt official was able to subvert the system, murder someone and make it look like someone else had done it, despite advanced technology.

The "minority report" itself was a report that had been written documenting the failures of the system and was buried by people who wanted to see it become permanent law.

It's just a sci-fi movie but really made some good points about innocent people being charged on the premise that they might be a threat in the future. "

They get the whole smash, rifle-wise (with the 1994 AWB), then come for the rest in the "lull" preceding the "sunset" date. It's never-ending. By their own actions, the destroyers have shown the path they're on: all of it, at the point of a "gun" (ironically).

Plus, there's this, which is hard to ignore. Every little infringing encroachment that gets into legislation and gets rubber-stamp blessed by the courts is essentially one more nail in the coffin of the RKBA and, ultimately, the BOR. Bit by bit, one piece, one accessory, one category at a time, it's all being gone after by the banners the destroyers send to do their work.

I have a hard time believing if given a puny "inch" they'll fail to go after the "mile" they see in the distance. It's a trade made with conniving participants who hold a blowtorch in one hand and the BOR in the other. I don't think they'll ever relent. Not ever. Not even if we give them this, then this, then that, then something else, then something "little" in the hope they'll deal honorably with us, etc. At some point, it'll all be done. And we'll have handed it to them, piece by piece. If we continue to trade with them. Such trading creates case law, which ultimately becomes the sort of weight upon the spine of the BOR that cannot be withstood.

I agree with what you're saying but Trump doesn't make the law, Congress does.

Right now, Mitch McConnell holds all the cards. If he decides to call the Senate back into session to vote on the Red Flag proposal, bad things will probably happen. However, Trump would still have to sign it into law and he, hopefully, won't do that.

It's all so frustrating. I can feel the country slipping out of our hands. Trump has to stay strong from here on out. I don't want to go back to the Obama years and watch our country decline, and the most frustrating part is the Main Stream Media is promoting this agenda with every twisted article and fake news report they can.

I heard the same thing but I can't remember where I read it. The article I read also said that guards could be heard yelling, "breathe Epstein, breathe". IDK, sounds a little sketchy but the yelling may have come from the guards, not Epstein and an attacker. "

There's a big difference. A gun doesn't need a bump stock to work as a gun. A gun does need ammunition to work as a gun.

Seems to me this should be pretty obvious. "

I don't think he will though. I think he's "managing" the Left the best way he can.

It takes a strong person to stand up against the constant barrage from not only Leftist Democrats but the MSM which are unrelenting. "

I think Trumps tweet about Cuomo is very telling. He's making fun of Cuomo and Red Flag laws. Trump has no plans to actually enact these laws, he's bluffing the Dems and they are falling for it. "

" Epstein's Island raided by the FBI. I doubt if they'll find anything of any real value, it was probably scrubbed months ago.

https://www.breitbart.com/crime/2019...the-caribbean/

From the article:

A dozen FBI agents raided Jeffrey Epstein’s “pedophile island” on Monday morning, according to reports.

Agents arrived on speedboats at the deceased financier’s private “orgy island” residence and were seen driving golf carts around the more than 70-acre grounds.

The Daily Mail reported:

Other officials with ‘FBI’ lettering on clear display were later seen overlooking the crystal blue sea from the top of Epstein’s remote luxury home off the coast of St Thomas. The search comes after 2,000 pages of documents detailing the lurid allegations of his sexual abuse of underage girls were unsealed to the public on Friday, adding more fuel to the fire of the government’s case of sex trafficking against Epstein.

A guess, but I'd think the best thing for NBC/Universal (the owners) would be: release it on 1 June 2020, 4mos prior to the election. It'll get a wide viewing audience, by those who want to see red-on-blue murderous rampage; it'll be soon enough to provoke some wackos to lash out violently in blue "protests" across the country; and it'll be soon enough to sway the election a little, perhaps a lot.

I'm sure they'll try and recoup their investment, as you said. I don't think anyone would have looked twice at this movie if they hadn't brought in the political aspect and called the hunted, "deplorables".

I did hear that the deplorables start fighting back and win in the end. IDK because it hasn't been released but that would make it more interesting if true. The idea that a bunch of elite Libs would kidnap a bunch of Conservatives and the Conservatives wouldn't fight back with a vengeance is laughable. So... "

From the article:

"Disgraced multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who was accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls, died by suicide early Saturday morning inside his Manhattan jail cell.
The 66-year-old Epstein died at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City weeks after he was arrested of multiple child sex-trafficking charges.
The incident comes two weeks after the 66-year-old was placed on suicide watch after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck."


No words for this. How can a person on 24 hours suicide watch in a prison be found dead???

Unbelievable.

jeanlouise replied to the thread Red Flag law scenerio.
" What I want to know is this: what is the ultimate plan to deal with people who "might" commit a crime? Do we start putting people away for life in a mental institution because they might commit a crime?

There are certainly people who are "weird" and people suspect that they may have violent tendencies, but what can we do about that?

Right now you have to have a court order to keep someone in a Psychiatric unit for more than 3 days. Anti psychotic drugs DO help, but usually the person stops taking them.

What happened to "see something, say something", kind of a red flag law in itself? Well, it didn't work for two cases that we know of. One of those cases was in Ft. Hood, Nidal Hassan. He had been reported time and time again by other co-workers and doctors that saw the signs of someone likely to go off in a violent way. The political correctness of the AF brass prevented them from stepping in and many people paid the price for it.

Another case of the "see something, say something" fallacy is that of the "Clock Boy". He wasn't a shooter but the people who were concerned about his clock that looked like a bomb were publicly ridiculed, mocked, called names, accused of Islamophobia and generally made miserable. The take home lesson of that was, "if you see something, shut up!". "

" I picked this off of FB. I don't know who wrote it as it was shared by several people with no "author". It's a little wordy but it makes a very good point of how quickly the Red Flag law could go sideways.




"Red Flag Laws. Here’s what will happen...

It’s a Sunday night and your family has all gone to bed. You let the dogs back in and lock the deadbolt like you do every night. All the lights are off now except a couple of night lights scattered throughout the house leaving that dim glow throughout your home. It’s bedtime and work and school are going to come early in the morning. You crawl in bed, kiss your wife and drift off to sleep being thankful for the air conditioning that allows you to pull that heavy quilt up over your shoulder despite the fact it’s still 85 degrees outside. A few hours pass...

0200 Monday morning and your wife taps your leg and says, “baby I heard something outside”. As you sit up in bed you hear the dog growling in the living room and you know something isn’t right. You grab that trusty ole 870 and head into the living room. Your wife grabs her 9mm and heads down the hall to the kids rooms just like you have rehearsed. “Good boy” you say as you enter the living room, trying to calm both the dog and your wife just as splinters fly across the room and the front door flys open. “Oh !” As you shoulder your weapon and send a load of 00 Buck across your living room and see the perpetrator fall in a heap. Before the “thank God” can even run across your brain, you see a second man coming in the door and you fire again. This time you hear the pop of your wife’s 9mm as she has joined in the fight. It has to be those damn meth heads from down in town! Just then you are consumed by a wall of bullets as you see multiple muzzle flashes from just outside the door and you realize something isn’t right. You turn to yell at your wife to “get down” just in time to see her take a load of buckshot to the face and her brain matter splatter the wall behind her. You feel the burning as 5.56 bullets Riddle your body. One clips your spine as you’re scrambling away and paralyzes your lower body. The last thing you see before you bleed out is a SWAT guy from your local PD holding your teenage daughter on the floor with a knee in her back as she screams and cry’s because she just watched her parents being murdered.

Why did this happen? You’re no criminal. You’re a Conservative and an honest family man. Your wife is a school teacher and your daughters are on honor roll. Why did this happen?

Well two days ago, you and your wife went down to welcome the new neighbors to the community. Your wife made them some of her “world famous” cookies and you invited them to church on Sunday. Later that afternoon, you got a friend request on Facebook from your new neighbor, which you gladly accepted. They seemed a little odd, but in the few minutes you talked they were pleasant enough. The next day while you and your family sat in church, your new neighbor scrolled through your Facebook profile. He saw that “Trump 2020” post and got infuriated. See, he’s a staunch liberal and he hates your kind. The next thing he sees are the hunting pictures you took last fall when your daughter bagged her first buck. Now he’s seething with fury because he is wholeheartedly against the “slaughter of innocent animals”. Next he sees your post from the last range day with your buddy and sees those scary black assault weapons on the table and that does it! He has to do something about the racist domestic terrorist living next door. He picks up the phone, calls the local Sheriffs Office and reports you as a threat under the new Red Flag law. The SO follows their SOP’s and conducts a no knock warrant because you have now been denied due process and you are considered guilty until proven innocent.

Now you, your lovely wife and two deputies have been killed for nothing. Your daughter will have absolute hell for the rest of her life. She will never be that successful person you dreamed for her to be because of the mental tragedy caused from seeing her parents murdered. The local news paper will report that you were killed after firing on and killing two deputies and that “over a thousand rounds of ammo and 22 guns were confiscated from your residence”.

Oh, those two deputies were just following orders. They left behind families as well and had served their community for over a decade. They didn’t know you were a stand-up guy with a great family. They weren’t allowed time to investigate things under due process. They were told you had threatened your neighbor and were out in the street waving an AR15 around.

This is the reality of Red Flag gun laws. Innocent people will lose their lives. Red Flag laws will be used for petty and vengeful reasons without merit." "

Without knowing why he was doing what he was doing, it appears he was falsely arrested and searched.

Yes, and therein lies the problem of our imperfect world.

If he's stopped and searched he can say it was done illegally and improperly. Maybe he's right.

If he's not stopped and searched, and suddenly begins firing at random...people will want to know why no one stopped him when he was first seen.

It's a no win situation for the cops or any bystander for that matter. "

Just because you can do something legally, doesn’t mean you should. The “he didn’t do anything illegal” attitude is what is going to sink the “shall not be infringed” mantra.
I agree 100%. Technically what he did isn't illegal (unless the Wal-Mart had posted signs that carry the weight of law in that state) but he set the gun rights argument back a good bit.

Given what happened in the Wal-Mart in El Paso last week...would any of us be ok if you were in that store and this guy came in? I know I wouldn't. I'd get out of there asap.

We're always being cautioned to have "situational awareness" and "assess the threat". There's a hairbreadth between a guy who's doing this to make a point and a guy who suddenly starts firing. Who's going to be the Guinea Pig for the "starts firing" guy?

The Left is going to have a field day with this and there's not a thing we can say to defend this moron except, "well, it's not illegal to wear body armor and carry a rifle around Wal-Mart while videoing on your phone". Given 2 mass slayings last week, that sounds pretty lame. "

jeanlouise created the thread Have you had cataracts removed?.
" If so, tell me about your experience.

I recently had both eyes done. They weren't bad but they fell within the "remove" range. The left eye was done on May 30th and right eye was done last Friday.

I'm having trouble adjusting to being far sighted, having lost my ability to focus close up or almost close up.

I didn't need glasses before, but now I'm going to have to get bifocals. My distance vision is now 20/20 which is great, but I'm even having trouble adjusting to that.

I know there are multi-focal lenses but I didn't get them...probably should have but I know they can have some issues too.

Anyway, if you're had cataract surgery, tell me how long it took you to adjust to you "new vision". "

It was quite evident that he didn't have much involvement in the actual witch hunt or the "report".

Go back to the home Mueller, I hear the vanilla pudding is excellent. "

jeanlouise created the thread Jim Beam warehouse burning.
" I didn't know if I should post this here or in the Miller section so we could all offer our thoughts and prayers to OV.


A warehouse filled with thousands of barrels of Jim Beam burned in Kentucky.
That rises to a National tragedy and hopefully Trump will order the flags at half staff.


From the article:

VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) – Firefighters in Kentucky are trying to extinguish a burning Jim Beam warehouse filled with about 45,000 barrels of bourbon.
Woodford County Emergency Management Director Drew Chandler tells WKYT-TV that two barrel warehouses caught fire late Tuesday. Crews were able to put one out, but the other kept burning for hours.
Chandler says it may have been caused by lightning.

jeanlouise created the thread The rising tide of violent behavior towards Conservatives.
" The attacks haven't abated any even though it's been 2 1/2 years since Trump was elected.

The latest incidents in Portland by ANTIFA clearly show that.

Also, Eric Trump was spit on by a waitress and the woman who owns the restaurant, "Red Hen" has written an op-ed about the incident and SUPPORTED the person who spit on Trump because people who promote hate deserve what they get.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/if...cid=spartandhp


So, the end justifies the means. They now have free reign to perpetrate any form of violence on Conservatives because Conservatives promote "hate"...when they, in fact, are the hateful. "

jeanlouise created the thread Did you watch the Democrat debates?.
" I watched most of the first night but missed last night because we went to a meeting. I have seen enough excerpts from last night though that I got the gist.

The first night I thought I was at a Tele Mundo conference. Most of the candidates were trying to out-Spanish the other ones. However, Elizabeth Warren didn't speak one word of her native Cherokee tongue. That was a disappointment.

To sum it up: Free stuff for all, big business is bad and needs to be taxed more and illegal immigrants have become the new protected class. Oh, and trans females need full access to abortion rights. Whew, I was worried about that.

From what I gather, Joe Biden committed political suicide and Kamala Harris is the new queen of the hill.

What did you think of the debates? "

jeanlouise created the thread The Final Day.
" I just downloaded, "The Final Day" by William Forstchen. He wrote, "One Second After" and 2 others about post-EMP America.

"The Final Day" is one of my all time favorite fiction books. I liked the other 2 he wrote, but FD was the best IMO.

This newest book is the last one in the Trilogy and according to the reviews is the best of them all.

It's an Audible book and I plan to listen to it when we go away next week. It's a 5 hour drive up and back and I love listening to books when I travel, it makes the trip go by in a blink.

Have any of you read it? If so, did you like it as much as The Final Day? "

jeanlouise created the thread Possible 3rd party in 2020 election?.
" I think it's very possible that there could be a 3rd party in the next election. It might not be an official 3rd party and it's not what has been considered on this forum in the past.

I heard the other day that Sanders has a large following but Biden is getting bigger donations and now has more support. Sander's supporters are saying that if the Democrats steal the nomination from Bernie like Hillary did in 2016 they WON'T vote for Biden, they'll either vote for Trump or not vote at all.

That is great news for Republicans. I hope Bernie hangs in there, fights like crazy and doesn't back down like he did with Hillary. There's no way the Democrats will allow Bernie to have the nomination because a Socialist won't win. So, he could be the one to put the nail in the 2020 Democrat coffin.

The other possibility is that Bernie will go full Socialist Party once he sees that Biden is going to get the Democrat nomination. He'll get a huge amount of the under 25 vote because they are the ones addicted to the idea of free stuff and too dumb to know that nothing is ever free.

Either way, it means a big win for Trump.

As far as the other Dims go, they might as well drop out now. It will be Biden for the nomination with Bernie supporters siphoning off a lot of the votes. "
