    He who forgets the past is doomed to repeat it.

    I'm not personally in a Union, but am smart enough to know that I have the benefits I do because a group of Union Members stood up in the past. More Power to them!

    They are trying to ban body armor

    This Guy has a one-track agenda: https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/376?q={%22search%22%3A%5B%22assault+weapon%22%5D} Introduced in House (01/14/2015)Home-Assembled Firearms Restriction Act of 2015 Considers as a banned hazardous product under the Consumer Product Safety Act: (1) any firearm receiver casting or firearm receiver blank (do-it-yourself assaultweapon) that does not meet the definition of a firearm under the federal criminal code at the point of sale but that can be completed after purchase by the consumer to function as a firearm frame or receiver for a semiautomatic assaultweapon or machine gun, or (2) an assaultweapon parts kit or machine gun parts kit. Makes it unlawful to market or advertise any of such weapons for sale on any medium of electronic communications, including over the Internet. Requires marketing or advertising violations to be treated as unfair or deceptive acts or practices under the Federal Trade Commission Act.
  6. I'm saying the LEO's perception would carry more weight in court by definition. Any 2 people witnessing the same event will likely perceive it differently, it's not lying, it's how we interpret things.
  7. I'm stating that the LEOs overreaction and poor judgment wouldn't have been evident without the benefit of video evidence.
  8. What struck me when watching this was the politeness of the guy who was shot. No profanity, obviously incredulous at what just happened to him. I also "know" in my heart of hearts what the aftermath would have been if there were no video evidence. Sadly, all of you know as well.
  9. Absolutely, look at the situation we are talking about. What did the private citizen do that was in violation of the law, or even remotely out of the ordinary? Answer: NOTHING.....yet he was shot. I look at all cops as stressed out and ready to snap at any moment.
  10. I treat every contact with a Police Officer as a potentially deadly situation.
  11. I have a couple lowers I bought last year. Looking to build an 18" with fluted barrel. Just for recreational shooting. I like the look of fluted barrels. I want to do a build with quality components, but am also aware that after a certain price point you reach the point of diminishing returns. So what would y'all recommend for a good build, but not at Cadillac prices?

    While reading about the vote for Scotland Independance, I ran upon this interesting fact about the U.K. This one they got right!! Political advertising on television and radio in the UK is prohibited by the Communications Act 2003, with the exception of permitted party political broadcasts.[55] Three major cinema chains stopped showing adverts by referendum campaign groups after receiving negative feedback from their customers.[56]
