  1. I told a story recently about how I was sitting in a downtown parking lot when two people working together came up to my truck with bad intentions. Easily could have gone wrong and yes I had my hand on my handgun. He saw that and left. My house luckily has NOT been broken into but I do know people that have had their houses broken into. Don't just pretend like these things just don't happen no matter how much you want to believe that they don't.
  2. But it so does. I have had people come up to my truck while I was sitting in a parking lot. People break into people's houses. While I do agree with you that bad things don't happen nearly as often as some people want us to believe, they DO happen. I try to see the good in the world. I just choose to be prepared for when people are not good. Hell, the damn topic of this thread is a school shooting. Dennis pointed out about a million other school shootings. How can you say that these things don't happen?
  3. I have zero issues with any of your proposals. Seems to be pretty spot on. So what are we doing to these kids that are so young and feel like they need to shoot up a bunch of elementary school kids? What is going on in their heads that they feel like this is acceptable?
  4. Good luck. Beautiful country.
  5. But it happens. It is irresponsible not to be prepared. This may be a safe time but that doesn't mean that bad things don't happen.
  6. I understand what you're saying, but as long as there are bad people out there that want to do bad things then I will carry. I would give up guns in a heartbeat if everyone else did the same. But I refuse to be the one that plays by the rules when bad people just ignore them.
  7. Mandatory life in prison for using a gun in a crime actually sounds like a pretty decent idea to me. I disagree with owning only one hunting rifle. You would at least need a few different calibers for different game and different landscape. But it's a decent point. Handguns I disagree with you completely. I work in some shady areas at times. I get there at 5:00. We travel a lot, often late at night. Maybe it is an illusion but I feel safer with a handgun. You will not change my mind on that.
  8. Valid points. But lots of places have legislation in place against 30 round mags, yet still being used. Hunting rifles can be reloaded pretty dang quick with a little practice. Or drop rifle and go to one of the 2-3 handguns you have on you with easily interchangeable and very legal 12 round mags. I understand what you are saying, and you are correct. The point I was trying to make is that I feel like someone ill enough to kill than many innocent kids will just find a way. Outlaw all weapons and they will use a pipe bomb. They will run over them in a crosswalk. They will find a way.

  10. Gun control laws? Sure, why not. I just don't think that they will work. I am a multiple gun owner. None of them were hard to get. I don't have anything fancy though, shot guns and pistols. But I could walk into somewhere and do a hell of a lot of damage with them if I were so inclined. But that thought has never once crossed my mind. Limit sale of AR style weapons and you can do just as much damage with a hunting rifle. Good luck trying to ban hunting rifles. Not where I am from I can promise you that. I really don't have an issue with a little more control over who can buy weapons and ammo. I am certainly in favor of security at schools. But I think honestly the way to fix this is to get some parents to pay attention to their damn kids. Maybe an unpopular opinion, but it's mine right or wrong.
  11. Shoeless Joe Jackson. RIP.
  12. That is awesome. Recently there was a case where a kid got a tractor impounded. A youtuber made a video about it and offered each kid that drove a tractor 500 dollars to drive it to school the next day. It was some pretty funny stuff.
  13. This is what I was going to say. (the part about mileage) My Deere riding mower burns so much oil that it's kinda like changing it every 3-4 cuts.
  14. I had a 7 for a long time. Don't know if it was 4 1/2 years but it was a great phone until I dropped it into the toilet. I have an XR now that I have had since then (3 years?) and it has prob been the best phone that I have had. I replaced the screen once because my daughter tried to close it in the tailgate of my truck... but it's still ticking right along.
  15. Wordle 341 4/6 🟨🟨🟨⬛🟨 🟨🟨⬛🟩🟨 🟩🟩⬛🟩⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 didn’t mean to hit enter with askew. I was just plugging in some letters to see what worked. Oh well. Got ‘er done.

    My wife loves her some Sweet Baby Ray's. I gotta admit that I don't hate it.
  19. I have a hard time entering a school here and everyone knows me. Hell, I have coached multiple sports teams and have a hard time getting in somewhere.
  20. More than once I have had a person come into the ER with facial burns caused by smoking with oxygen on. Hard to tell how many deaths can be directly attributed to smoking. It is a horrible habit.
  21. For sure. You never know how actors are in real life but I have heard numerous accounts of him being a really good dude. I can't remember who it was on Rogan one day talking about him, but he had an acting gig with Tom and it was one of his first. Tom called him each night to check on him and gave him a really nice, expensive hand crafted fountain pen. The dude said Tom was the ultimate professional and great to work with. But I am sure for ever story like that there are several where Tom threw a fit because his latte was prepared with real milk instead of almond milk or some shit like that.
  22. That was great! I had no idea that he actually flew.
