Okay WW, I watched your video. I've seen it before and it is very compelling.
Now you watch mine. viewtopic.php?f=51&t=39011

The banter on here is good and healthy, love to see it. I thought I would chime in here a bit.
In Milwaukee, Wi- Sheriff David Clark is telling the citizens to arm themselves for protection. He had to cut back his staff last year by 150 officers and now the response times are way up. He wants the citizens to be able to fight for themselves, to defend themselves. He is a firm believer that if criminals think we are armed, they are less likely to try and over power us or rob us.
I saw this on the news a few days ago and cannot find it on any video feeds. But here is a sheriff telling the people to arm themselves because the law enforcement has been depleted due to budget cutbacks.
On another note here, the whole discussion about what should or shouldn't be banned. If you give 'em an inch, they take a foot! this is the premise for which law abiding citizens do not want any bans on anything. If we make certain stipulations to ban anything, it is much easier for the opposition to just amend their criteria to include more and more weapons as they would have their foot in the door, invading our 2A rights.
So with all of this in mind and I know this probably isn't going to be viewed by many of you as being along the same lines, but it is to me:
This is sort of like including crossbows as not legal or should not be used by hunters.
Just because it's one group of hunters trying to make law on what other hunters should and/or shouldnt' be able to use for hunting, the anti-gun nuts are doing the same thing. why? because they don't like what we have or think that we shouldnt have them because it's not the way they do things. It's one group trying to regulate another.
We as hunters, should first pull together and not divide on our issues as this has been and/or will become fodder for anti hunters, anti-gun and anti everything groups.
It is my belief that anyone buying a gun, should have to wait for a thorough background check and that a 3 week to a month wait instead of 3 days waiting should be imposed. you can still have the gun if you pass the background check.
The reason for this is because i have seen several nut bags that want to kill their cheating spouses, go to the store, wait 3 days, get the gun and then kill them along with others (it's happened here in the milwaukee area 3 or 4 times last year). this 3 week to 1 month cooling off period i think may help deter some of the nut jobs.
also, if you have anyone under the age of 18 in your home, you should be required to have your weapons with some type of trigger locks on them. if your child takes one of those guns and uses it to kill someone, hold up a store, etc, the owner of the gun should be held responsible.
Also, if your child or persons living in your home are deemed with some type of mental disorder, the same rules would apply here as well. Defining what mental disorders are dangerous would have to be determined by someone other than me, but i believe the last school shooting was a mentally diagnosed kid, the columbine kids had access to weapons in their homes and lord only knows what kids have access to now days.
but by holding the owners of the guns accountable for keeping the weapons locked up, trigger locks, ammo in separate locations locked up, should help with many of these problems. it wont stop the crimes themselves from happening right away, but when people realize the penalties associated with not locking up their arms, they will soon enough when prison sentences start getting handed down.
also, for a home protection weapon, to be made handy and not having to unlock a trigger lock when someone has broken into your home-
well they have those safes that have the fingerprint locking mechanism. put that in your drawer by your bed if you care to do so. but then only you can be allowed to open it, not your kids or an intruder. Thats what we have in our house. We practice situations of how to get to the weapon if needed.
just my thoughts.
