    DPD has railroaded yet another black male unlicensed ocer.

    This time with a ccw charge for hgoc on his own property, creating a remarkable double impossibility of him being guilty. I don't want to go into more detail at this time while he sorts out his legal strategy, but yes, it is as asinine and outrageous as it sounds. We are doing a protest on...

    Draco pistol bullpup kit.

    Somehow, for some reason, this doesn't seem to qualify as a SBR. http://www.cbrps.com/Products.html In essence, it appears that this is an ATF classified pistol which can be fired from the shoulder, and stays totally legal as a pistol so long as you don't put a forward grip on it. So long...

    New thread on budlight's gripe to avoid further hijacking

    I wish in this thread, as I wished in the other threads, to resolve the matter as you described. PM's, calls, and even meeting up at a coffee shop are all fine with me, but apparently not okay with budlight. So I am going to say the following. White suburban folks choose not to go to detroit...

    Changing my mind out of respect for others here.

    In thinking it over very heavily for the past 24 hours, I have made the decision to reverse my opposition to SB59. I am doing this not because I have changed my beliefs and concerns, but rather I believe that if those here are not going to be convinced to agree with me, I may as well help...

    The NRA, $$$, SB59 and why we should stop it.

    Q, You stated you helped write SB59 and I'm not calling you a liar, but it ******* WREAKS of being the NRAs idea. What we are talking here about here is, over time, MILLIONS of dollars going directly to the NRA from royalty fees from classes alone. Just like usual for the NRA, but this time with...

    New SKS magazine system

    Got inspired to post this by the AR vs AK dead horse beat-a-thon going on in the other forum. (THIS IS NOT INTENDED TO DISCUSS LONG GUN CARRY, SO PLEASE NO ONE BRING IT UP) Despite its draw backs, I believe the SKS is in many ways a nicer gun than either the AR or AK. It's stronger than either...

    So absurd I gotta post it

    imported post I found out that England and Wales have this anti knife campaign going on, even aggressively posting signs in public areas. As I understand it, it's to threaten young people with prison time for carrying knives like most here have probably made a habit of since their early teens...

    imported post I don't remember who it was that told me this, but I remember being told that being evasive during a stop is RAS for more searches. I have also, during the course of an illegal stop by some officers, been told that I was being evasive, and that this was justification to run my...

    Community colleges vs Preemption

    imported post Some time ago, a newer member who seemed very legally savvy posted that preemption doesn't apply to community colleges, because they receive their power directly from the state, from act 331 of 1966, the Community College Act. This law can be viewed here...
