Re: Gov. Northam announces gun control package

Well, I don't check in for a few days, and I note that, in my absence, we're back to trying to talk Marc into running for office, lol. Obviously, I still support that effort. Marc, everybody is rough around the edges. So what? That's part of being human. The trick is in owning your flaws, as opposed...

Re: Trumps speech

There is a certain value in allowing folks to hang themselves. Also, Trump seems to like the long game. And, while the media has concerned themselves with porn stars, sleazy lawyers, Russian boogy-men, and other shiny, meaningless things, Trump has been quietly dismantling the Obama legacies. We're ...

Re: Gov. Northam announces gun control package

@Swampman: Wilkow has a pretty good way of explaining things. The problem with moving away from problems, especially when they end up following, is that eventually you run out of places to go. Now, WE all may be dead, before that happens. However, our children (or, those under 25) likely won't be. N...

Re: Gov. Northam announces gun control package

Kentucky and Missouri. Rural areas look and feel "Virginian". The people in both States remind me of actual Virginians. The gun owners that I've met are generally happy. And, cigarettes are cheap (relatively speaking) in both States. Oh, haven't noticed, one way or another, in KY, but the ...

Re: Well, this is interesting...

On the topic of making firearms, there is a blog that documents handmade firearms that were confiscated by Law Enforcement Agencies, all over the world. I wish I could remember it; I'd post a link. I do recall that a number of them were pretty damn sophisticated in appearance, especially since the a...

Apparently, the UK is experiencing a flood of black market firearms, and they don't expect to be able to stop it, for a while. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/dec/27/police-struggle-to-stop-flood-of-firearms-into-uk?CMP=share_btn_fb&fbclid=IwAR3HwCvDN2nNmCeZATd2PaWXwgvwIdxXDC28V1Z-Rxf4erM...

Re: Northern VA Opticians that are shooters?

Hmm. Y'all may want to try eye doctors in the more southern, exurban parts of the Commonwealth. I would think that some travel might be worth the effort. A word on Lasik: apparently, not everyone can get it. My beloved, blind-as-a-senior-bat, wife looked into Lasik. The eye material that Lasik "...

Re: Mattis leaving in Feb

I have found, in my travels, that most of Kentucky reminds me of what Virginia used to be, back when Virginia was populated by actual Virginians. I also find that, for the most part, Missouri is a fine State. Were I to consider leaving VA, MO and KY would be serious considerations. As to Mattis, I h...

Re: Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas, to you all! It's a shame that so many have faded away, and admittedly, I don't check in as often as I used to, either. I am thankful, as well, however, for those that are still here, and look forward to the return of our old friends who have been MIA, for a while (and, of course, th...

Re: Virginia Arms

The vague sounding answer may well have been the true answer. I don't know the guy, and never had occasion to step into the store, but... My Father owned a retail store, for a period of time. It's a stressful thing. Many who own a store, will tell you that they dont own the store; the store owns the...

Re: City employee fired for gun in car, sues for RKBA

At this point, I'm sure that y'all know my stance on the topic.

However, I find myself wondering how anyone found out about a pistol, hiding away in the glovebox of a personal vehicle.

Re: Why The Midterm votes are important

Voting for Congressmen is ALWAYS important. I deem Congressional elections to have a higher level of importance than Presidential elections. Those who only show up to the polls for the Presidential elections, have quite the poor understanding of civics. [ Post made via Mobile Device ] http://vagunfo...

Re: Ocasio the next dem leader

@Randy: I have to disagree with that, lol; NOBODY makes Hillary look good. Ocasio and Hillary, both, will always stand on whatever side of an issue will pay the best. If they can figure out how to milk all sides of an issue, they'll do that, too. Whoever pays the least will get thrown under the bus,...

Re: Ocasio the next dem leader

I've been watching these #Walkaway videos, on YouTube. Seeing who is "Walking Away" has given me hope. Virtually every demographic has been represented, and many of them, several times, on these videos. I was really hoping, that when Obama got elected to his second term, that he'd just pus...
