    I wish I had 15 bricks.

    I have four .22's and only three bricks. :(

    Stingers feed just fine in my Beretta 22- model 21 flip barrel.
    I probably have 5 -6 bricks various 22's + couple of tin cans of Rem

    CDNN- $950 for AR15's of one sort or another.

    2 brothers of Chechen ancestry-muslims apparently.
    Not a big surprise.
    The Ruskies and Serbs are no doubt laughing at us-since we occasionally-not lately-make noises about the Ruskies suppressing their muslim populations
    And we crushed the Serbs in Cosevo(sic) during clinton's presidency
    because they were slaughtering the muslims on the edges of Serbia.
    Yeah-the Serbs are certainly happy today.
    In any case Chechens are European ancestry-so they blend right in.
    Perhaps this will lead to a warming of our relations with the Ruskies??

    PS Putin will probably offer condolences-with an I told you so wink.
    These muslims-are Sunni-so we would be well advised to make peace with the Iranians(shia)-since Sunni-Al Qaida- consider them heretics and they slaughter one another periodically.
    Hard to keep it straight-but pretty sure Chechens are Sunni.
    Sunni Shia in the Muslim world is Europe 1600AD protestant catholic -full contact religion-both hate Christians of course

    PS I bet SOME folks in Boston wish they were better armed.Now yes- armed citizens ARE likely to shoot the wrong people-but I would still prefer to be armed if i was sheltering-cowering-in place. Yeah-more people would die if more folks were armed-but they wouldn't be me.
    Kinda a low blow to bring this up-but USA-e-ins- are a violent bunch-so...
    It will be interesting to see what happens gun control-gun prices wise.Probably prices up-
    All the gun control stuff is pointless-we have 300,000,000 guns-2nd amendment-stupid war on drugs- 2 pointless wars where we are killing 100,000's-dying and maimed 100,000 soldiers.
    Gun control-just isn't important-and it divisive

    pre-ban pressure cooker on ebay:

    Q: Will this pressure cooker cure the ghey?
    A: Some say they are born that way and there is no "cure" for ghey, but I'm sure this device could be used to make some permanent changes.

    Last numbers I saw was a minimum of 250K to as many as 400K or more new NRA members in the last five months.

    NOT ME.
    Are you guys members-or is that an intrusive question-in which case ignore it.
    Even if I favored the NRA's agenda(I don't)
    I would be too paranoid to join
    A NRA membership list would be a great place to look for " good photo op weapons caches"

    I have a buddy that insisted any sort of national registration number
    You know the Nazi movie "show me your papers question"
    was going to be the "sign of the beast" and if I accepted it-I was going to hell when the antichrist was defeat at the second coming.

    Herm-I have just what I need to protect MY rights-Mini 14 sig 229 Glock 27 many many "evil mags" AND a fair number of rounds-+ some 22's.

    So are you folks in the NE "sheltering in place"
    What kind of CS is that anyway???
    Whole city cowering from one 19 yo??
    Cops are too high handed

    Cats might be into evading-but not sheltering in place.
    They are of the "best defense is a good offense" school of thought.

    Notice the bomber was found because folks were "allowed" to leave their houses.
    Having citizens moving freely-why not??
    If you want to stay home-fine-but ordered to stay home??
    You right wingers and Libertarians should be bitching about that???
    I can't believe no one else finds that -ODD??
  14. jcp123

    jcp123 Caliente!

    I was under the impression that was a strong request?? Under what grounds can they ORDER something like that? If true, I am not pleased with that either.

    They actually searched several homes by force, not sure how they got away with that.

    Yeah-a strong request by cops-armed and twitchy
    like the LA cops hunting one of their own-shooting old paper ladies to protect their RANK

    Of course-maybe LA cops are worse than average-the Boston cops managed to only shoot the right people-

    I would be OK with breaking into houses-just property-and it was a" war" type situation
    but ordering folks to cower in place?? Closing down an entire city?? For one suspect??

    Yeah-searching houses without warrants-ok- ordering folks to stay inside-for that long-not ok.
    Heck-it didn't work-

    FSUspectra Practicing true conservatism!

    There was nothing voluntary about the "request" for residents to stay indoors...

    Like everyone, I was elated that they got the guy - quickly, and alive to boot. But I've had some nagging doubts about the "lockdown" (which sounded an awful lot like martial law to me) imposed over multiple cities like that.

    I think we need to better clarify when the use of such tactics is allowable. In this case the justification was that they were after someone who'd already carried out a mass attack and appeared capable of more, but some of our cities carry out searches for at-large armed and dangerous suspects routinely, and we need to make sure they don't start doing these kinds of "lockdowns".

    It is possible that a group of Boston/Cambridge/Watertown citizens will bring a lawsuit challenging this widespread use of force, possibly pushing the case up into the higher courts and forcing a clarification. I know the Seattle PD is much more careful than they used to be, thanks to all the lawsuits they lost in the wake of widespread illegal detentions and other constitutional violations associated with the 1999 WTO protests.

    Hey Herm.

    Thursday night 10:00 pm CNBC.

    America's Gun, The Rise of The AR-15 :D

    Usually CNBC NBC's business network is pretty fair to both sides unlike the National Broadcaster of Communism. It ought to be interesting to see how they present the issue to their viewers.
