  • And Stumpy, you do remember how our Founders came up with that concept, don't you? :wink_smile:

    Oh very definitely - it was intended to prevent this country ever having another tyrannical government by having an armed citizenry to prevent it.

  • What's even scarier, is that I heard on a news program I think on Fox, that mentioned that the he-devil clinton, was tossing the idea around at running again. If that happens, THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD; as well as whats left of our country. >:-((

  • Are you talking about the he-devil, or the she-devil ? :uhoh:

    Hi Jim, most definately the he-devil. From what I understand, it has something to do with the she-devil losing popularite with the extreme left. I guess they could her flip-flopping too much on too many things.

    My roommate said that he is going to move to Rumania if billery gets elected. If that happens, it might drive me to do lotsa :martini_shaken: and I don't mean in a partying way. As I don't drink spirits but, having mrs twiggy in charge WILL drive me to more than sipping the grape. :uhoh:

  • To Our Friends Across The Water:

    Here's a news article that perfectly illustrates the difference between the European way of thinking and that in the U.S.

    Please note the bit about few accidental shootings, etc.

    Guns aren't evil - it's the people who use them in evil ways.

  • Jim,


    Don't the Swiss have a similar law? I agree with your general premise though and I think most Americans are starting to tend toward that Euro view unfortunately.


    On a similar note, I read a news story today about a guy who got himself arrested because he overheard what he thought were a woman's cries for help coming from an overhead apartment in the building where he lived. He grabbed a cavalry sword that was a family heirloom and busted through the neighbors door only to find out the sounds were coming from a porn DVD the guy was watching.


    The cops arrested the poor guy and confiscated his sword. He could get up to 9 years. The guy thought he was saving someone's life and now he's lost his family heirloom and faces years behind bars because some perv has a penchant for violent porn played loud enough the neighbors can hear it.

  • Talk about a jacked up world. :mad:



    You got that right.

    There used to be a song with either the title or a lyric that said "It's Not The World I Used To Know" and that's exactly the way I feel. Glad I don't have that many more years to endure this crap.

  • Yeah, I could imagine that JW would have pulled the same thing if he'd been in that situation. I know for myself, I'd at least been pounding on the door to find out what was happening.

    Hi Todd, if she gets in (Heaven forbid) lets get together and I will buy you a few kegs. :beer: I think it will take quite a lot of drinking to be able to completely shut her out of my mind.

  • On that Swiss law, yes, they have to own a rifle and also have to maintain being a good shot with their rifle. I have a good friend who lives in Rickenbach, Switzerland, who used to be in the Swiss Army. He now is in the Swiss reserves and still has his military issued and modern German made sniper rifle-which is kept at home instead of in some darn armory. I have a German Mauser sniper rifle of my own only mine was made in 1936 - which is the first year that S-42 K-98's were made. Mine also has a fixed 25 round Ansteckmagazine in it.

    Now that sounds like one of those nasty assault rifle to me. :stunned:

    Another stupid liberal-dreamed-up-arbitrary classification.

    So what caliber is your Mauser? 7 or 8 mm?
