I wish they would raise the minimum age to exercise your Constitutional 1st Amendment rights to 21.

If it's true that "the pen is mightier than the sword", we really need to limit the damage that some ignorant and brainwashed high school kids can do with high-speed, high-capacity internet, Twitter, and Facebook.

Law says 21 and up to buy a weapon.
What if they already own one.

It really doesn't matter until you believeran we have a citizen population that believe's in amendening or deleting the 2nd amendment but I believe we are moving more and more to constituional protection than screwing with it. At least talking to Frederick and his friends that is the sense I get.

I also think his generation is seeing thru the progressive agenda of transexualism, open borders, abortion on demand and free drugs.

Extraneus

So Freitas was right, of course. It's not just bump stocks and background checks they want. In FL, they just passed a 3-day waiting period for long guns.

Think about that. You can no longer go to a store and buy a rifle in Florida.

Hard to believe Republicans agreed to that.

I'd like to see the poll include whether the respondents know what a semi-automatic weapon actually is.

Extraneus

What if they already own one.

They can "own" them, just not buy them. I owned a semi-auto .22 since I was 12. My son owned a 20 gauge shotgun since he was 16.

A father can still buy his son a rifle or shotgun. He just has to wait 3 days before he can pick it up in Florida.

Extraneus

Not really.

Good point.

There are only so many NRA members. Repulicans as registered voters out size them by thousands. Lots of people who claim they are republican or conservative have not idea why they are and what those institutions stand for even constitionallity.

Same for the Dems. Especially union guys.

Apparently Trump isn't agreeing to a meeting without "concrete actions" from NK first.

Not testing and not objecting to joint military exercises with SK are not "actions."

Looking at the survey, I am wondering why blacks support a ban by 63-33, but hispanics oppose 39-53. Good for hypothesizing.

Hah! They do on CNN, too. TVs in every airport lounge.

Regarding the discussion of patriotism on the last thread:

Leftists are not patriots. They are internationalists and to them patriotism is a provincial idea, akin to nationalism and of course, fascism.

Pproof of this is the "not standing up for the anthem" kerfiffle in the NFL, spying by leftists who gave the ifo to the Soviets and/or Russia, burning of the American flag, mocking of the military, etc.

The attitude is most easily explained by Trump speaking of America as an exceptional nation, to which the answer was "every nation thinks they're exceptional."

If pressed on TV, they might lie and say they are patriots, but if you got them in a group of their fellow lefties I can guaran-damn-tee you that they would laugh at the very idea.

Sbwaters

Thanks, JiB for the Champagne pointer. Looking forward to it. And to the croissants.

Same with a pistol. A 21 year old cannot buy it from a dealer, but he or she can have one in their possession and use it.

My oldest wanted a precision competition pistol before he was 21 and got it via a family friend who bought it and transferred it.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott spurns conservatives, NRA by signing new gun regulations into law

  • Raises the minimum age for firearm purchases to 21 from 18
  • Imposes a three-day waiting period for most gun purchases
  • Bans the sale or possession of bump stocks
  • Funds a program to allow some teachers and school staff to carry guns after 132 hours of firearm training and 12 hours of diversity training
  • Makes it easier for law enforcement to temporarily seize guns and ammo from people with mental health issues
  • Provides additional funding for mental health services
  • Funds the destruction and rebuilding of Douglas High School’s freshman building

Ex,

Do you have a problem with the Florida law (other than the diversity training)?

If a father or mother can buy a gun for a kid it doesn't bother me that much. I have a gun license but not a gun so I'm not someone with knowledge. I think it sucks for the military, but I really think a lot of this violence is a parenting issue. Do you?

Dropping a quick comment before running out to do some splitting ahead of next storm surge...

For Anonamom, and all y'all talking sodas vs pop vs cokes etc a couple postings back...

Here's another word for y'all's lexicon..."Phosphates," as in cherry, strawberry, lime phosphate. I used to hang out behind the soda fountain in grampa's drug store in a little Nebraska town as a kid. Cherry cokes, even chocolate cokes were pretty popular with the locals, but so were "phosphates." Lotsa farmers brought the family to town on movie nights riding on a wagon behind their tractors. But I digress. The fountain had a battery of syrup pumps...a couple squirts of Strawberry over ice, a pull on the soda water fountain, and viola, a "strawberry phosphate" was born! Don't know if I ever heard of them called that elsewhere.

So much to make note of for comments, but my habit is to read EVERYTHING. Being a slow reader, I'm often a day [or more] behind.

Amom...I have installed a unique folder among my bookmarks for your med and diet comments and links. Invaluable. Question: Is Club soda beneficial or harmful. I don't drink sweetened pops/sodas/teas etc from the store, but a few ozs of club soda is nice to break the monotony of plain water. Seems harmless to me, but I've been told otherwise. Others of ye also have your own folders...too many to list.

Gotta run. Be back again, no tellin' when.

P.S. best wishes to all of you in your various pursuits for health...your thoughts are all welcomed, when I get to 'em.

Threadkiller

What the heck, I'll just move this over from the dead thread.

What has Manafort done other than wear horrible hair pieces to get this reaction.

I based my disdain for Manafort mostly on Trump's distancing himself from Manafort. When the public became aware that Manafort had some odd connections that could be legitimately questioned Trump sent him packing. After ties were broken, Trump would make it clear that "Manafort only worked for the campaign for a very short period of time."

After Manafort's home was raided, Trump was asked about it at a press conference. Trump states that these types of raids are done in very rare circumstances. That with the rest of his answer implied, to me, that Trump believed Manafort to be a bad dude. Sure, there was a gratuitous "I like him" type of comment, but that would be expected. The rest of the statement is damming.

Scroll to about the 2:50 mark:

I cannot exclude what I read in the indictment simply because of a fruit of the poisonous tree argument. It is some pretty bad stuff and if this was the indictment against a Clintonista everyone would be doing a happy dance.

I said it at the time and I said it last week and I will say it again. My spidey sense tells me that Manafort exposed himself to be a privateer hoping to milk an international teet from the heights of a new administration and his lobbyist buddies were all in. Trump didn't like this type of shit and came to realize what a liability Manafort could be.

Manafort turned out to have way more baggage than anyone could have imagined. Mueller's indictment of Manafort also cleared Trump of any knowledge of Manafort's criminal doings.

I am not picking hat colors for Mueller. All I am saying is Manafort isn't a clean player and I imagine the same Trump loyalists that made him aware that he was being bugged probably also made him aware that Manafort was a liability so it wasn't that hard to throw Mueller that bone

Extraneus

Do you have a problem with the Florida law (other than the diversity training)?

Yes, Jane. A waiting period for long guns is new in FL. Not in places like CA or CT, but it would've had no effect on the FL shooting.

Just another compromise by a politician who's more interested in his next campaign than in guarantying the rights of his constituents.

Personally, I think that for school employees who can otherwise legally carry, allowing them also carry in schools would be much more effective in dealing with the problem this legislation is supposedly about. Probably only requires a modification of the gun-free zone law.

But we know it's not about fixing a problem. Libs and gun grabbers are not about fixing anything. They love mass shootings. And since it's not about fixing anything, I'm opposed.

I don't care about bump stocks, btw, and I might have supported a new background check requirement.

Btw, I carry around children all the time, and have been doing so for over 25 years. Nobody's sure what they'd do in an emergency, but I think I might help defend myself and any kids nearby if it ever came to that. I just wouldn't be allowed to so at school.

The idea that school employees (let's not just say "teachers," since they're probably generally less trustworthy than janitors) can't carry at school, if they could carry anywhere else, is ridiculous.

Captain Hate

Thanks for the answer, TK. I'm biased against Mueller period. He was a terrible head of the FBI; the Richard Jewell case by itself should have Mueller and every complicit worthless gumshoe serving major time incarcerated. I wanted to vomit when Bill Kristol's catamites described Mueller as a man of integrity.

AFAIC Manafort is a means for him to rehabilitate his image. I don't want that to happen. This entire investigation is a sham which needs to be shut down. Until that happens I'm not shutting up about it.

Do you have a problem with the Florida law

Ex replied, but, if you don’t mind, I’ll weigh in, too.

This is a continuation of childification. When does one become responsible? When they demonstrate they can shoulder it.

Most every pre-teen I was with in summer camp learned to handle rifles safely and responsibly.

You don’t encourage people to matue when you son’t allow them to mature.

When teens prove themselves irresponsible, then restrict their opportunities.

At 18, one should have the opportunity to act maturely -- drive, vote, serve in the military, and buy a rifle.

If not then, why not make this the last generation to be able to drive, vote, serve in the military, and own a gun.

Also that 132 hours of training time for the teachers? Shooters---what say you? That seems insanely huge to me.
The 12 hours of diversity training is TOTAL BULLSHIT.

The three day wait thing is bizarro too. Unless they make that for elective abortions too.

Basically, a pile of meaningless crap that at a minimum infringes on citizens time, and may infringe on the 18-21 year olds rights.

That's 4 weeks full time of "how to shoot"? Or 4 weeks of indoctrination of which a day and a half are "diversity"? What else, 40 hours to master personal pronouns (your treeness)?

A 4 week all day shooting camp would be great! I did one week of the Remington wing shooting school, a thousand rounds a day. Good time!

Not necessary for a carry license. We had a NRA course on gun safety & legal/moral considerations for a WI CCL. Shooting and gun comfort are a separate issue, but I enjoy that part whenever I have time.
