    Wouldn't doubt but what Dick would confiscate AR15s from all non-military citizens in the country, if he had the authority. This is an act to impose authority where authority exists, by ceasing the sale of AR15s in their stores. Secondarily, where authority is lacking, to express the corporate opinion that the citizenry should not be allowed to own AR15s and to sway public opinion to that cause.

    But maybe I'm delirious, paranoid, and untrusting... On top of deplorable! :)

    True story. I grew up in SoCal and worked at Chick’s Sporting Goods. A few years ago they were bought out by Dick’s Sporting Goods.

    Chicks turned into Dicks..

    Shane I don't include you in this, it's just a lead to where I'm going.

    Could be, the question I ask those believing more is better, have you called your representative demanding the laws you demanded previously be enforced? Or aked what the actual rate of enforcement is?

    I read lying on the form prosecution is under 1%, felon with a firearm single digits. California just banned teachers from shooting someone there to shoot up a school, and ended mandatory minimums for gun crimes. They can't afford the prison system they have.

    Coincidentally California was just pronounced as having the worst quality of life in the nation, with some places falling below third world conditions. Huge homeless encampments, and a big chunk of San Francisco an open air toilet. Seattle just decided folks crapping on the courthouse steps is at the point it needs hosed down regularly, and there's actually an idiot opposed to it.

    I posted somewhere the other day in response to an anti gunner. How about we mix social media, criminal records, and facial recognition, when firearms meet felons send in SWAT teams. Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, etc, use all the federal SWAT teams target one city at a time, 90 days, then see what gun crime is. Isn't this what Trump was talking about in January? What/who changed his mind? Silence.

    Not that I want that, but it's what it could look like, we can't enforce taillight regulations without folks getting killed, what's a gun ban going to look like? Who want's to live in such places? How much of the population do we go broke locking up and for what?

    The world is tough test for ideals, an old proverb; What can't be remedied must be endured.

    Never had an AR, but have no doubt what spits out the other end will include, Ruger carbines, and Winchester 100's. How long before it's "sniper rifles" thumbhole stock's good optics?

    Are there folks unsafe, irresponsible, Yes. Educate where you can, but in the end them, is all of us.

    I swear Trump must have been doped up last week at his around the campfire chat with Feinstein and the other Pols.

    Heard him say he doesn't need the NRA. Doesn't need any of them. He's too smart to say something so dumb. Oxycodone?

    He might not need the NRA if he has no need to win another term in office. He'd not have been elected in 2016 without NRA member votes. It was too close in the swing States.

    Gun owners never forget. He spews more scat out his mouth like that and I'll be moving on.

    Have seen it many times, the smarter the person, the less common sense they have. He doesn't know when not to tweet or keep his mouth shut!! If he gets kicked out of office it will be his own doings!!!

    Reminded me of the time, a couple years back when I took my daughter to the doctor for a flu bug. She was about 10 at the time. The doctor asked if I had firearms in the house. Knowing where the conversation was going, I just couldn't resist. My answer was, "Yes, both mine and hers, and how is that any of your business". The doctor was speachless! Never pass up a chance to piss off a liberal.

    1st, thanks for the really quick reply to my questions on your bullets. Ordered my first box. 2nd, liberals love free speach, until you disagree with them. After over 30 years in law enforcement I can attest to the insanity which has overwhelmed the "justice system". We, gun owners, are suspects, until we prove we are not. Then we are just persons of interest. The younger generation of LE cannot be assumed to be pro gun. Many are not. Many would love nothing more than to be involved in the seizure of privately owned weapons. It's a totally new mind set. Never assume they are of a kindred mindset. Just sayin. Thanks again for the great customer service!
