I'm leaving this one alone.

RIP Justice Ginsberg, a true American hero.

I'm on a guitar messageboard where people started at least 2 or 3 different "RBG RIP" threads. The other day someone started a topic about ammo being scarce, and I mentioned something to the effect of "because of all the 'peaceful' protesting, people are arming up for war." and I got slapped with a warning for making a political comment, when politics and religion are strictly verbooten topics. So after one guy says, "We can express condolences for RBG without it getting political." The very next poster says "RIP... even though she made some horrible myopic choices." So I respond by saying that I was told not to make any comments that might lead to political discussion. At which point the first guy starts pelting me with tomatoes and calling my opinion into question based on my newbie status to the board. ::)

Eventually the thread was locked by the guy who warned me a couple days ago. So... fuckyouiwin. :badgrin:

I didn't like EVERYTHING she did. I didn't revere her as a holy fucking saint like some people. But on the whole, I had no problem with her.

https://wtop.com/virginia/2020/09/3-dozen-orders-issued-with-virginias-new-red-flag-gun-law/

Virginia is already putting their new red flag laws to use. I'd really like to know how many of these cases made logical sense. In a perfect world, I'm all for taking guns away from someone posting pics of guns online and outlining a plot to use them for harm, but red flag laws are virtually never limited to clear-cut cases like that. It always seems to lead to mentally stable law abiding citizens getting their rights taken away. In rural Georgia no one bats an eye at someone walking towards the woods in their own yard with an AR-15 or AK-47 and they hear 30 shots pop off. But to some people just seeing someone do that is very frightening.

There's really just an astronomical amount of ignorance out there when it comes to guns. Fear of the unknown. A lot of anti-gunners change their mind about guns after one afternoon of safe target practice. But up until they relieve some if their unfamiliarity, they see guns as dangerous weapons of murder and war. The media constantly paints the picture of people being shot. Everything is from the victim's perspective and not the shooter defending themself. It leads to huge misconceptions, fear, and anger. An buzzwords like "assault weapons" just make everything worse. The actual definition of assault weapon is nonsensical from a functionality standpoint. A Ruger mini-14 or mini-30 has the exact same capabilities as an AR-15 or AK-47; same ammunition, same magazine capacity as the ones they want banned, semi auto. But people look at a Mini-14 (or Mini-30) and think "hunting rifle" because of the wood stock. But paint it black and put some cosmetic upgrades on it to make it look "tacticool" and it's viewed as an assault weapon. A lot of people don't even realize how many places prohibit AR-15's for deer hunting because the round isn't powerful enough for a humane kill. It's high velocity but it's still a fucking 22. Part of me honestly wishes gun safety was a class that seniors in high school could take. Probably not the best idea, but somehow the unfamiliarity needs to be relieved.

I just got a new Savage 22 for plinking when I'm back in Georgia. Cheap ammo ftw.

https://www.wxii12.com/article/remington-arms-closing-rockingham-plant-laying-off-workers/33548954

I've been looking for a Marlin lever action rifle for a while now. Marlin was bought out in 2007 I believe, and quality control suffered. It slowly got better throughout the years until now, and I recently read that Ruger is buying the Marlin brand. Then it reminded me of something I read about Remington closing down and I looked it up. This is a direct result of last year's SCOTUS decision to allow the families of the victims of Sandy Hook to sue them into oblivion. One bad SCOTUS decision, one world renowned major gun manufacturer gone.

I keep hearing these moronic leftists say that packing the court is justified if it makes the # of justices labeled as right/left wing more equal. I'm willing to bet they haven't heard of decisions like this, made by a "right wing majority" SCOTUS.

Bloomberg at it again, spending millions to support gun grabbing state congresspeople and trash the republican candidate in several states including NC.
