OT: Show of Hands

You can't take a jabbing? I suppose that's as good of a reason as any.

That's the amazing thing about opinions...

"Acts" cannot nullify the constitution. Only a constitutional amendment can change/nullify it.

OK. Got your attention. The second amendment is often explained as a way in which the "ordinary" citizen can defend himself against an overzealous government. That facet only is nullified by the alien and sedition acts, which have stood the test of time simce before 1800. The test was most severe during the Civil War, which was won by 1 side. I am not defending either side's stances here, just stating the obvious. In other words, the FBI, police, national guard can and will be called upon to put down an insurrection. Whether or not you like the many instances this has been done, that line of thinking and acting has prevailed.
Just to assuage your fears, I am against overzealous government. Actions like Waco have no place in our society. Nor does the hounding to suicide of Aaron Swartz.

The hounding to suicide? Swartz was charged with hacking into MIT's online, subscription based scientific article system and downloading 5 mil articles, nearly the entire thing. He had previous run ins with the govt over similar activities, so it's not like he wasn't warned. So, they charge him with criminal offenses and now it's the govt "hounding" him that caused his suicide? I guess the govt should just let computer hackers do whatever they please.....

Maybe it's the "control, alt, delete" of govt to be executed by a free people? Or maybe it's the preventive measure that obviates the need?

I went to Academy Sports this afternoon to get a box of .22CB's. The ammo shelf was 80% empty of all handgun ammo and most rifle ammo. I asked why the run on new handguns included a run on all types ammo. The answer was that people are thinking If they regulate & control guns they may want to control ammo also. Went to Bass Pro Shop to check their ammo status. It was probably 40-50% empty. People are stocking up!

WallyWorld is out of everything and have been for a couple of months. We went into a rather large gun store over the weekend. It was *jammed*. Guns flying off the shelf. I was talking with one guy who was looking for a cheap .45 to throw in his center console. The current inhabitant was getting all scratched up. He had just been to one of the mega gun stores in the area and said they were selling truckloads a week. The dealer at the gun show I went to last summer had people backed up ten deep filling out their "yellow sheets". Took me a half hour to buy the thing!
I looked at a couple of Springfield and Kimber 1911s. One of the Kimbers was sweet, but for $1400 it oughta be. Get the AL house sold and it'll be easier. ;-)

I heard a million magazines, but it's not surprising. ARs are hotter than handguns right now because they're what the government looks like it's coming after. It may just be a head fake, though.

I'm not really looking for something to conceal. I bought a PPK for that. It's not like I wear a coat or carry a purse so it's gotta be pretty small (fit in a pocket).

Certainly more useful. The problem is that it's harder to part with guns. ;-)
