Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Israel Bars Congress Representatives!
« on: August 15, 2019, 01:44:43 PM »
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/israel-bars-entry-to-outspoken-us-congresswomen/ar-AAFQ1tG?ocid=spartandhp

I find it hilarious that these two congresswomen that have been so vocal against Israel, have now been barred entry into the country for a visit! Maybe they should learn how to keep their mouths shut! LOL!  :th_thicon_lol: :rocknroll2:

One of the original Bullitt movie Mustangs is going to auction.

This is so cool, and I will venture the going price is going to be very, very high.

Found this article this morning, and read through it, and found it just reinforces some opinions I have about Democrats.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/worst-congressional-districts-for-black-americans/ss-AAFO6a7?ocid=spartandhp#image=31

It's Ironic, but the overwhelming majority of these congressional districts are represented by Democrats. Anoter ironic factor, is that many of these representatives are also some of the biggest Trump haters, and those also calling for his impeachment. Hmmmm....interesting to say the least. They can't even clean yp or take care of their own districts, but they propose to want to impeach our president, and tell him how bad he's running the country! Now if they had perfect congressional districts, they MIGHT have leg to stand on.

Gun News & Laws / Marijuana and Guns............
« on: August 14, 2019, 01:16:38 PM »
A dope smoker, (self admitted by himself, on many occasions.) posted this question on another forum.

Sorry if this has been answered before. Now that several states have legalized Marijuana for Medical and/or Recreational use, what are the ramifications for purchasing a firearm and the 4473 (not sure of form number) ? Is there still something in the questions regarding drug use ?

Question 11e on the Form 4473 covers that quite well.

https://www.atf.gov/firearms/docs/4473-part-1-firearms-transaction-record-over-counter-atf-form-53009/download

So simple answer? Nope, you can't use pot and legally buy or possess guns!

Gun News & Laws / Red Flag Laws and Forum Participation......
« on: August 13, 2019, 08:39:26 PM »
A friend of mine posted this on another forum. Got me to thinking about it.

I don't know about anyone else... but if a federal red flag law is passed and signed... (Or just in my state) I'll be done on all online forums

My discussion about gun issues will be limited to Sat. a.m. at the LGS

What say you all?


IF, Texas were to pass a RFL, or one was done as federal law, I'm thinking my own participation about gun rights, gun issues and laws will more than likely be curtailed quite a bit, and probably limited to only those people I know personally. Too many politically motivated anti-gun liberals out there that could take something one of were to say out of context, and have some low-level agency employee do an IP trace and thyen they come a knocking the doors in.

Chances of that happening? Probably very slim, but why take the chance.

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Wealthier Immigrants........
« on: August 13, 2019, 11:01:06 AM »
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/trumps-commonsense-rule-on-immigrant-welfare-use/ar-AAFK17i?ocid=spartandhp

Seems to make perfect sense to me. Why would we want, or need immigrants coming into our country, that would just end up on welfare, vs. those coming in that can and will support themselves?

Seriously? Only a liberal Democrat who is pandering for votes would see a problem or call that racist IMO.

And if Trump is able to bring even more jobs back  to our country from overseas, that is going to cause an even bigger surplus of jobs.

Looks like it's time to shut down welfare and all of the other social welfare programs and assistance and put the the lazy dead-beats to work or let them starve!

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Moron Testing The Right to Bear Arms!
« on: August 10, 2019, 01:36:27 AM »
I read this article, and was just utterly amazed at the stupidity of some people!  :th_nuts:

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/armed-man-at-walmart-says-he-was-testing-right-to-bear-arms/ar-AAFxBg0?ocid=spartanntp

In light of recent tragic and horrendous mass shootings, by deranged individuals, in what way did this idiot think this was a good idea? Even his own wife said he was immature, and thought it wasn't a good idea, as did his own sister.

For the most part, I do support open carry, but when I read about morons pulling such a stunt as this moron did, it really makes me question whether open carry should be allowed.

A friend started this thread, and I thought it was rather appropriate and very common sense thinking.

So, the democrats want compromise. They want republicans to work with them. OK, here goes: Give them enhanced background checks. But, lets amend that to include requiring voters to show an ID to vote.

The liberals would just LOVE it! Think about it. Liberals say requiring an ID to vote disenfranchises poor and minority voters. What would my plan do? I mean, you just can't logically have both things be good.

Tactical Shooting / Axxe's Rules For A Gunfight!
« on: August 09, 2019, 11:06:21 AM »
This thread is in many ways a light-hearted approach to a very serious factor of life, survival.

My viewpoint has been since as far back as I can remember, surviving a violent encounter, or armed attack. I care nothing about whether the bad guy is shot, killed, injured, or if I completely miss them. That IMO is irrelevant. My one and only goal, is that I and my loved one survive that event, alive and well.

Some people have told me in the past, with my viewpoints that I contradict myself, by having or carrying a gun for self defense, because I think ALL life is sacred, and should be respected, and preserved whenever possible. The contradiction in their opinions? That I'm willing to take a life in defense of myself, my loved ones, or others. Willing to do something isn't always the same thing as wanting to do something. I have prayed many times to God that I never, ever have to use the skills I have learned to take a life in defense of myself or others. I an fully aware that the outcome of such an event could very well lead to someone being killed. I also accept the reality that someone that would perpetrate a criminal, or violent act upon another person has to be accountable for their actions that could possibly lead to them getting killed. The attacker or criminal also has to accept a burden of responsibility for their actions in life.

One of my rules of a gunfight, have a gun! Seems rather simple and it is! Any gun is adequate IMO. Ever a snub-nose 22lr revolver is better than no gun at all. Something beats nothing every day of the week. Now that 22 revolver may not be the best choice for carrying for SD, but it sure does beat a pointy stick! Yes there are much better choices IMO, but that is where a person needs to educate themselves about guns and ammo properly suited for SD purposes. I won't even belabor that topic in this thread.

Another rule of a gunfight, is to have a working gun. Some may be wondering why I would even mention such a thing. Bears talking about, in educating the noobs, and well as those of us who have done this for a number of years, but avoiding complacency. Making sure you have a working gun. Regular practice, with your chosen type of carry ammo, and regular maintenance of your carry pistol need to be taken. Finding a problem, or even potential problem at the range and then addressing that issue, could very well save your life or someone else's life. I believe in Mr. Murphy, and that he likes to butt into people's business at the most inopportune of times, and to totally screw up a person's day! Personally, I would much rather find an issue that needed to be taken care of my convenience, and when it wasn't a critical and possible life and death situation. So with regular practice, inspection and maintenance of my carry pistol, IMO I minimize the appearance of Mr. Murphy!

Some people have the philosophy that we should strive to put the attacker or bad guy down, and kill them, because they are the lowest scum on earth. Regardless, of whether they are the lowest scum or not, NOT one of us has the right to take another person's life. ALL life IMO is sacred. But, I do believe we also have to right to defend ourselves as well. So if I were to be attacked, and just presenting my gun stopped that attack, with no shots being fired, then I feel my gun has done it's job in an acceptable manner.

There are also two lines of thought, on shooting another person in an attack. Some believe we need to shoot to kill, and some are wanting to simply fire warning shots, or wounding the attacke, and not killing them. Neither lines of thought are acceptable or valid IMO. I was taught and adhere to shooting to stop an attacker. Nothing more, nothing less. Yes, there is a very high degree of the chances that someone could die from being shot, but that is not my intended result. I only wish to stop the attack, and only use the necessary force to achieve that result. IMO. those who use the other two lines of thought, have no business in th first place of carrying a gun in public around other people.

This is a very serious subject manner IMO, but at the same time, we should never take things so seriously all the time.

I welcome any comments, suggestions or differences of opinions. Many of the opinions and ideas I have are my own, and I feel they are applicable to my factors of life and seem to work very well for me. That doesn't mean they are the best options or choices for others. YMMV!

Guns aren't the problem. I would like any of these Democrats to point out ANY law, that if it were in effect that they rally behind and for, that would have prevented either of these mass shootings. I'll wager any amount of money that they can't.

How many here are on an electric COOP? And which one if you are, or what electric provider do you have if not on a COOP?

We have been on Houston County Electric COOP since we had the house built. So far, I am very pleased with the service and the price of electricity. I like that being a member, I am also an owner, and not just a customer.

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Cop Bashers......
« on: August 02, 2019, 09:54:48 PM »
I just read this post, that the person used to start a thread. He is constantly negative, and bashing cops.

Frequently, when a mass shooting occurs, police officers will take credit for killing the shooter when they are well aware that the shooter killed himself. How can officers not be aware that there will be an autopsy that will reveal what really happened & how foolish they will look? Are cops really that desperate to appear heroic?
Reminds me of those "Stolen Valor" fake war heroes.


He seems to think all cops are inept, incompetent, or corrupt. There was a time when his posts would have met with being deleted, or at the very least many members taking him to the woodshed! Part of the reason I don't have much to do with that forum anymore. It's become too politically correct for me. I have been sent to the woodshed too many times for calling out such posts.

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Trump and Racoons!
« on: August 02, 2019, 02:43:02 PM »
I lifted this from a buddy on another forum. Funny, but true. Enjoy!  :wave1:

HOW I FEEL ABOUT TRUMP: By Steve Harvey
You've been on vacation for two weeks, you come home, and your basement is infested with raccoons.. Hundreds of rabid, messy, mean raccoons have overtaken your basement. You want them gone immediately!.. You call the city and 4 different exterminators, but nobody can handle the job.. But there is this one guy, and he guarantees to get rid of them, so you hire him.. You don't care if the guy swears, you don't care how many times he's been married, you don't care if he has a plumber's crack, you simply want those raccoons gone!. You want your problem fixed!.. He's the guy.. He's the best!

Here's why we want Trump: Yes, he's a bit of a jerk; Yes, he's an egomaniac; but we don't care!.. The country is a mess because politicians suck, the Republicans and Democrats can be two-faced and gutless, and illegals are everywhere.. We want it all fixed!.. We don't care that Trump is crude, we don't care that he insults people, we don't care that he's been married 3 times, we don't care that he fights with Megyn Kelly and Rosie O'Donnell, we don't care that he doesn't know the name of some Muslim terrorist.. This country became weak and bankrupt, our enemies were making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegals, we are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo, and Hasid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don't even recognize the country we were born and raised in; "AND WE JUST WANT IT FIXED”.. And Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want..

We're sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, sick of the Republican Party, and sick of illegals!.. We just want this thing fixed.. Trump may not be a Saint, but we didn’t vote for a Pope.. We voted for a man who doesn't have lobbyist money holding him back, a man who doesn't have political correctness restraining him.. We all know that he has been very successful, he’s a good negotiator, he has built a lot of things, and he's also NOT a politician, NOT a cowardly politician.!.. And he says he'll fix it.. And we believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be proven wrong, or looked at and called a liar.. Also, we don't care if the guy has bad hair.. We just want those raccoons gone, out of our house, NOW!!!

You are welcome to copy/paste/share this.. Thousands of people who haven't voted in 25 years seem to be getting involved.. And the more people get this message, the more that will understand why Trump was elected..The raccoons have got to go!!!
