Gun News & Laws / Re: Virginia assault gun ban
« on: February 17, 2020, 04:38:08 PM »
Saw that this morning. Passed along party lines in the house but some moderate democrats stepped up when the Senate voted. It's a shame that they let this other crap pass.

Other gun control bills have, however, made it through the Virginia House and Senate. These include measures that would ban guns in certain areas and buildings, require universal background checks, limit how frequently people can buy handguns and allow law enforcement to temporarily take guns away from someone they deem dangerous.

They reap what they sow. Trump is right. If you have a city, county or state controlled by the Democratic party you have rampant crime, rampant drug use, a large homeless (or bums as my father called them) population and high taxes.
I wonder how long Gov. Abbott is going to put up with the socialist Austin Mayor and city council. Parts of downtown are worse than San Francisco and it's slowly creeping out to the surrounding areas. I seriously hope Gov. Abbott mobilizes the Texas National Guard to go into the homeless camps, give every resident there a $20 bill and a sack lunch and bus there asses to California.

That's cool as F*** AKM. I picked up a Palmetto State Armory AR  pistol in AAC Blackout last year for my LEO son who carries it in his patrol car. Been thinking about getting one for my self but that .308 looks sweeeeet. Whats the optic?

Some highlights:
House Bill 961 prohibits “any person from importing, selling, transferring, manufacturing, purchasing, possessing, or transporting an assault firearm” in the state of Virginia.
Violation of the law would be a Class 6 felony, carrying a penalty of up to 12 months in jail and a fine of up to $2,500.

The bill also makes it a felony to have magazines that hold more than 12 rounds.

“HB 961 would make tens of thousands of gun owners in Virginia criminals overnight,” Republican Del. Nick Freitas told the Washington Examiner.

“This bill creates an environment where you could receive up to 12 months in jail for every magazine you have over 12 rounds,” he added. “At the same time that Democrats are voting for early release programs for people convicted of first-degree murder and rape, they are criminalizing law-abiding gun owners.”

Warren needed a good showing but 11% ain't going to cut it. Biden is toast. Both of them may ride it out 3 weeks till Super Tuesday, March 3, but my guess is one, maybe both, will drop out before then. South Carolina next week promises more of the same.The big question is who do the Biden & Warren supporters get behind once they drop out? I'm guessing Bernie will get 50% with Klobuchar and Mayor Pete splitting the rest.

The Democratic Party is self imploding and they know none of the current candidates has a chance against Trump. The new racist allegation against Bloomberg, recorded seven years ago, will probably sink him. Members of his own staff have quit over it. 

The Democratic National Convention is five months away. Going to be interesting to see what underhanded crap they pull until then.

A welcome shout out from Brazos County.  :th_thicon_idea:

l really like to hear stories such as yours. I'm sure some of our Houston area members can recommend a gun range. We are a diverse group here so feel free to jump in anytime.

Lived in Monterrey, Ca back in the mid to late '70's. Wife and I enjoyed our time there. Lot's of things to see and do.

One of these days I'm going to make a road trip to one of Wanenmacher's Tulsa Oklahoma gun shows. They have two a year. Usually have a minimum of 4 thousand vendors. That would be worth it to me.

You do not see many negative stories by the mainstream media on any of them right now - but several months ago, I saw some news about what a terrible Mayor Buttiegeg has been. I think if someone points out that if he cannot run a city, how can he run a country... That would hurt.

I personally think that if they pick Sanders, Sanders is the easiest to defeat
Yeah, Buttiegeg has some baggage being kept on the way low. Since he began preparing for his run for the Democrat candidate 2 years ago he hasn't been paying much attention to his mayoral duties in South Bend leaving it to a city counsel that bickers a lot and doesn't get anything done. He's a intelligent person though. Oxford grad and Rhodes Scholar. South Bend is a typical liberal town with two large university's. Notre Dame and Univ. of Indiana.

He had a white cop on black shooting last summer that may come back to haunt him. Anybody interested can read about it here: https://www.indystar.com/story/news/crime/2019/06/24/south-bend-police-shooting-what-know-pete-buttigegs-response/1545032001/

I believe the DNC will do what the did last time and do anything they can to keep Sanders from being nominated. His admission yesterday that his Green New Deal will come at a cost of thousands of jobs will be used against him if he gets the nomination.
 
This week was bad bad bad for the Dems. Caucus fiasco in Iowa, Trump acquitted, best economic news in the last 20 years, best ever unemployment numbers across the spectrum and Aunt Pelosi throws a childish fit for all to see.

The next few weeks should be very interesting.

Ammunition / Re: Brass casing with rust?
« on: February 08, 2020, 11:36:12 AM »
I bought some Malaysian surplus 7.62x51 and noticed rust on a couple of brass casings ... brass doesn't rust

?????
So, I was reading about brass plated steel 9mm at a CZ forum this morning.  I will be taking a magnet to my S&B 10mm after seeing some 9mm, brass S&B cases picked up by a magnet.  There were a few other brands listed, but I keyed in on the Seller and Beloit as this was the only brand that I actually have in my stash.

At any rate, what I learned is that manufacturers may be plating with brass as a form of corrosion resistance.  I'd hate to believe ammo makers might do this to simply trick shooters into overvaluing their ammo.  Seems visual inspection is now officially unreliable to identify actual case material.

Really. That is interesting. I have a few boxes of S&B for my Tokarev and a couple of other handguns. The price is what usually attracts me. Has always been good range ammo for me.

I like the Pasadena Show and I generally like the smaller venues with free, easy parking.

But, I'm generally more interested in guns that have been out of production for years.  I also like to see offerings at hobbiest tables - e.g. the DW Pistol Pack dude I see a couple times a year.

I'm with you. Smaller venues with free parking. With entrance fee your out $20 or more before you go through the door. Screw that.

New England is Sanders country. Massachusetts may go to Warren as it is her home state but her campaign is imploding right now with several black campaign workers claiming racism and bigotry from within.

Mayor Pete, IMO, is a fading star. Homosexuals are not as popular in the south or with blacks so I don't see him really gaining any ground now but I wouldn't count him out yet.

Biden is toast and is really starting to show he's a doddering old fool. I believe the Democratic National Committee sees him as a liability now.

Bloomberg is the wildcard. I think it will come down to him and Sanders.

CHL - Concealed Handgun License / Re: Concealed handgun in car question
« on: February 07, 2020, 10:03:56 PM »
I don't know ship. With Abbott at the helm I believe it is possible. 75% of the fight will be Lt. Gov. Patrick appointing a committee chairman that wants to see the bill through. I know that's a big if though.
The state having to give up the million of dollars in LTC fees will be a big hurdle.

TX castle doctrine extends to your car.
Can NOT be on your person (unless you have your ltc) and has to be out of sight. IE covered.

Hate to disagree with you Shield but the only restrictions placed on a Texas motorist carrying a handgun in a motor vehicle are:

The handgun must NOT be in plain view; it must be concealed.
You are NOT engaged in criminal activity (excluding Class C traffic misdemeanors).
Federal law does NOT prohibit you from possessing a firearm.
You are NOT a member of a criminal gang.

If you DO NOT have a valid carry license and have a concealed handgun in a holster, in your pocket or concealed in any other way on your person while operating a motor vehicle you are not in violation of the Texas Motorists Act. As long as you remove the handgun from your body and conceal it, say in a glove box, prior to exiting your vehicle your compliant with the applicable law. You do not have to remove the handgun from your person if the property is under your control as in your house, driveway or business.

Do I recommend this. No I do not for several obvious reasons. All it takes is one over zealous LEO to ruin your day.

Praying for Constitutional Carry to pass the next legislative session.

Maybe the case but why risk it.
I always thought it had to be not on you unless transporting to or from home etc.
Try removing from your pocket after a cop asks you to exit your car.

Interpreting a law or statute with an eye towards caution is always a good thing. Agree with you about contact with law enforcement and that was one of the obvious reasons I was referring to. Telling a police officer "OK but first I need to take this pistol out of my shoulder rig" isn't something an LEO would like to hear. Also, during a traffic stop, making suspicious movements when trying to remove and conceal a handgun is not going to endear you to any member of the law enforcement community.

Remember the previous Texas law where one of the reasons you were allowed to have a handgun in your vehicle was "traveling"? This was interpreted and misinterpreted countless times, depending on what county or jurisdiction you were in, by law enforcement and civilians alike. And who could forget for the first 15 years Texas had licensed concealed carry and the "printing" clause? That's why Texas needs Constitutional Carry. A straight forward law. No need to guess what is permitted and what isn't.

Yes you can have your firearm on your person in your vehicle as long as it is concealed. Glove box, center console or door pocket OK too as long as it covered and out of view of the public.
If you carry on your person while driving remember the LTC statute goes into effect once you step out of your vehicle.
If your going to have a firearm in your vehicle It’s best to keep it covered in the door panel or someplace accessible by you and not accessible by a passenger. Many people find holster carrying while driving uncomfortable and place it in the door panel with a towel concealing it.

Your new carry license will change all this. Good luck.

Iowa is right at 30% Democrat. Because of all the alleged computer problems the best guess of registered Democrats that actually caucused was 40% to 50% of that. On the national table the Iowa results mean very little if anything. Let's see what happens after New Hampshire and South Carolina and leading up to Super Tuesday. I predict that the DNC will do everything it can to stop Bernie. Whatever happens it will be a street fight.

Did you know that the Republican Party also had caucused Tuesday. It wasn't necessary as Trump is the only one on the ballot. The two other Republican candidates, Walsh & Weld, weren't considered viable and were not on the ballot. Still thousands of Iowa Republicans turned out and in some places it was standing room only. Something like 94% turnout.

I also miss Charles Krauthammer.

Romney has four years left on his current term and, IMO, attempting to position himself for the 2024 presidential election. With his vote to impeach Trump he can now try and convince independent voters, RINO's, some dems, anyone that he was the only conservative to stand up for what's right and vote yes on impeachment. Who knows what tricks and shenanigans he has planned over the next four years.

Romney has always been about himself and couldn't stand the spotlight being on anyone but. He talked plenty of trash about Trump during the run up to the 2016 election then after it was over went looking for a handout. Begging Trump for the Secretary of State gig and money for his campaign. He's been bitter ever since Trump took literally five minutes to tell him to go f**k himself and don't comeback.

He's alienated himself with the majority of the Republican Senate and House and now is being triumphed by the liberals as a man of courage and conviction. The truth is he's a slimy belly crawler. Hopefully his constituents will see through the charade and vote his ass out.

On another note I am a big Rush Limbaugh fan. Since I retired I listen to his show everyday. I even bought a pair of noise cancelling radio headphones so I could listen while mowing the grass. His admission Monday that he had stage 4 melanoma hit me like a lightening bolt. When he was awarded the Medal of Freedom last night he looked nothing like his old self. He's supposed to return Friday and give his listeners an update. Hoping for something positive.
