Re: “The Friday line

Wow Skee-Haw ... The millions of people who fire hundreds of millions of rounds at targets (yearly ... many never having hunted or shot at a person) would be surprised to hear that. Yes, I will concede the original purpose was to "kill things more efficiently", but firearms have far more uses today. Regulating the "tool", especially regulations that are irrelevant (past "assult weapons ban"), will have little effect on killings. I would think the goal would be to implement actions that are actually effective ... some in the short-term & some which may take longer to become effective. Example, having metal detectors and armed security at every single school (I know, expensive and not my first choice either) would instantaneously be many times more effective than banning high-capacity magazines. The California shooter, yesterday, could have killed everybody with a shotgun if he had wanted to, but he didn't want to. A semi-automatic shotgun (with the "right" ammunition) is more effective in close quarters than a semi-auto rifle chambered to fire 223 Remington

Re: “How extreme is Tom Cotton? Part III

IF they are qualified that is one thing ... There was a female personal trainer at my gym, in W.NY (a city 2x the size of LR), who reportedly got the highest test EVER on the physical fitness portion of the firefighters exam. I have no doubt she could take care of herself physically.

The problem comes and when politicians want to make a point (political grandstanding) and relax the standards and/or pass people who shouldn't be passed. An example might be LT. Kara Hultgreen, who was passed for political reasons and ended up killing herself when she crashed her F-14 into the ocean.

Re: “Shootout in Walmart Riverdale parking lot

It is a mini-WM .. "neighborhood market" ?? I would be fairly certain (98.72%) that no firearms or ammunition are sold there.

Re: “NRA responds to killings with task force led by Asa Hutchinson

A long but interesting read. Also, domestic military bases are like small cities ... just the MPs are armed.
