I want to go back to an earlier conversation, about when carrying a weapon can be seen as provocative. Then weave in the discussion about how being shot from a riffle or high velocity weapon is different than being shot from a pistol or low velocity weapon. Carrying an AR 15 or other highly visible ...

I will never be a progressive partly because I will never embrace their mantra of: "Morality is more important than the facts." And partly because I will never respect: Sanctimony, self righteousness, and virtue signalling, which seems to be a necessity of the wokeism the left seems to he...

Looks like Kyle might need to use that MAGA donation money to hire a bodyguard (or two) https://www.insider.com/rittenhouse-attorney-phone-death-threats-2021-11 You keep posting things like this, so I'll keep recycling my previous comment: Because that worked out so well for the people who tried to...

A prosecutor considering criminal charges against the parents of a boy accused of killing four students at a Michigan school said Thursday their actions went “far beyond negligence” and that the gun “seems to have been just freely available” to the teenager. Interesting, so why wasn't the "fri...

There is no clean and sanitary way to have people living on the streets. The only solution is to house them, something our country is appallingly bad at.

In other words, you are pointing out how violent extreme progressives are. Good point. :thumright: I'll happily admit to being partial to progressive thinking but I notice for somebody who claims not to be neutral and "non-partisan", you sure repeat these lines regularly over many years. ...

Why did he think Kyle was an active shooter? Just because someone in a large crowd yelled 'get him', and that's it? Was he just gullible to attack based on those two words only? Why did a 17 year old think he could help in a volatile situation? It honestly doesn’t matter if it was rational, he had ...

I tend to avoid someone with a weapon, not rush up to attack them. But hey, that is just me. 8) You wouldn't say that if somebody tried to disarm Anders Brevik, Adam Lanza or Brenton Tarrant and got killed in the process. All three of Rittenhouse's victims were trying to disarm him and (at least in...

Carrying a rifle, in Ameria, is not a provocative act. Let's talk about this. There is a strong disconnect between what the law and some groups of people advocate, and the actual emotion and feeling it can provoke in other groups of people. I'm getting the feeling that you (and a number of others) ...

Well let's say Rittenhouse was looking for trouble. If a person is looking for trouble, finds it and then runs from it, and only decides to protect their lives after being attacked by the people chasing them, does that automatically make self defense, turn to murder, if the person running, was look...

And I wonder why it isn't. To me, it is. Why would you take someone walking around with a slung rifle or holstered pistol to be provocative? Would you have the same reaction to a sheathed knife on someone's belt, or a folding knife clipped to their pocket? Because too many people have talked openly...

Because too many people have talked openly in front of me about slinging their riffle with the specific intent of intimidating others. Because when an armed group arrived in quiet Oregon coastal town, all the families that had been out enjoying the day quietly melted away. Because while gun advocat...

Especially when an AR-15 is involved, which is not a defensive weapon, but one designed (due to the bullets, if I have it correct) to make sure the targets actually end up dead, as v wounded. 100% wrong, the AR15 is traditionally chambered in .223 Remington / 5.56mm NATO (they're largely interchang...
