    differences of opinion continue to stir the anti-firearm crowd - especially when each party uses different data streams...

    While I don't necessarily agree with the GVAs definition of a "Mass Shooting" event, why does the FBI list fatalities as a requirement for an "Active Shooter" event? What are these events if no one is killed? Just target practice? How does the FBI classify victims of "Crossfire as a byproduct...

    Oh dear ~ Alcohol is the most commonly used illegal drug among U.S. high school students.

    Yes, it made the common (foolish IMHO) practice illegal. Kinda the point. Laws don't cause anyone to become criminals. Folks only become criminals if they choose to violate the law. No one forced these folks/adults? to drink. Don't you emphasize responsible behavior in your firearms classes?

    Oh dear ~ Alcohol is the most commonly used illegal drug among U.S. high school students.

    Thanks to Elizabeth Dole, Secretary of Transportation under Reagan, who pushed for the National Minimum Drinking Age Act, signed into law on July 17, 1984. It penalized Interstate Highway funding to any state that did not raise its MLDA to 21. See...

    A federal judge, who compares an AR-15 to a Swiss Army knife, overturns California's ban on assault weapons

    Highly unlikely. From https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/adverse-events.html Over 285 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through May 24, 2021. During this time, VAERS received 4,863 reports of death (0.0017%)...

    A federal judge, who compares an AR-15 to a Swiss Army knife, overturns California's ban on assault weapons

    I thought he did a really fine job of shredding the traditional arguments against AR15s. He really did pick apart their statistical rationale. But, then he said this (on page 47): "More people have died from the Covid-19 vaccine than mass shootings in California.". Without citation, which has...

    24 states urge Supreme Court to take case challenging NJ large-capacity magazine ban

    CoL's response would include states that already may have mag limits in place. In short, their laws would become void.

    SCOTUS Rules Police Cannot Search Homes Without Warrants in the Name of 'Community Caretaking'

    In this area (Tidewater, VA) there are localities that depend solely on volunteer EMS personnel (firefighters, paramedics, etc.). There are also localities around here that have a mix of volunteer and paid (municipal employees) EMS personnel, and some that only have paid EMS. I'm guessing that...

    Send a message to bidens ATF

    Don't "regulations" stem from the law itself? If these "regulations" have been "misinterpreted" by the courts, whos job it is to interpret such "regulations" in accordance with their originating law and judge alleged criminal conduct accordingly, it would seem that revising the "regulations" to...

    Open Carrying on Postal Property

    Might want to also send the letter to the Postal Inspection Service, as they are responsible for enforcing USPS regulations. Not sure the local police chief even has jurisdiction.

    Open Carrying on Postal Property

    The USPS didn't redefine the term, but it appears that they did identify what purposes are lawful. Such a description would, by definition, identify purposes which are not lawful, i.e. if'n' it ain't in the list, 'tain't allowed. It seems like the issue is the application of the definition(s) to...

    Open Carrying on Postal Property

    The author states (emphasis added): The Supreme Court in United States v. Cruikshank, 92 U.S. 542, 553, 23 L.Ed 588 (1876) declared that the right of “bearing arms for a lawful purpose” was not granted by the Constitution. The understanding was that it was in existence before the Constitution...

    Verticle Shoulder Holster

    Ah, the benefits of being left-handed. I wear my EDC cross-draw on my belt, which eliminates the seat belt issue and the need to transfer my firearm from one side to the other when entering/exiting my vehicle. Rottman, where did you find your holster?

    Well, IIRC, the war didn't start before secession, it started afterward, and was a primary cause. Lincoln considered preservation of the union his primary responsibility, and declared he had no right to interfere with any state's standing on slavery (check his 1st inaugural address). The...

    "truth be told, your commentary regarding the southern states raising up against slavery is completely incorrect as the initial succession was precipitated strictly over state rights and commerce trade injustices. Abraham Lincoln repeatedly stated his war was caused by taxes only, and not by...

    ah, a young pro police civilian militia wantabe guards the community

    Choice might depend on SD sentencing laws. Does a jury or the judge impose/recommend sentence following a jury guilty verdict? Are the jury recommendations/impositions binding on the judge? Jurors may be overly harsh or lenient in finding guilt if they think sentencing may be too harsh/lenient...
