All Things Guns & Ammo

Not a Glock guy, but Glock's announcement of the new .22LR Glock 44 strikes me as a great business decision, and it's something that I've thought that Glock and others should do for years. The new gun is basically a .22 version on the Glock-19-sized frame. It has a special slide that is mostly polym...

TL;DR: Life is what you make of it; and I've made mine hard for a stretch here. I don't have the requisite joy in my demeanor to hang out here and be playfully angry about things, so I'm basically abstaining through necessity.

Here's another angle. Two reporters were in a car on the opposite side of the intersection from where the van stopped, which put them downrange of the police firing.

Not only were they using occupied civilian cars as cover, they were also firing from positions where other occupied civilian cars were clearly "downrange." So they were hiding behind innocent people and firing shots that could easily hit innocent...

I was thinking more the former ambassador to Ukraine who was smeared and removed from her post in this scheme. Or are state department officials also subhuman garbage people that deserve to be publicly attacked?
She wasn't directly affected by that phone call. It wasn't about her.

I think the “any persons” condition has been met.

Politicians aren't persons. They're more of a subhuman race of garbage people.

If the only person affected is Joe Biden, then I can say with 100% certainty that I'm not going to care.

Not at all. It's just interesting observing where and how the lines get drawn for abuse of power. At a minimum, I would only start to get concerned when the abuse of power in question actually has any impact on any persons or their rights, and the Trump phone call (even if true) doesn't rise to tha...

Lots of Russian money was laundered through your beloved NRA comrade.
And where is the proof of that?

Moreover, I don't believe in campaign limits anyway. I wouldn't give two craps if Putin himself personally ran ads on national US TV advocating for or against any candidate.

It's funny to see people who normally jump at the chance to shake their fist at the world and cry 'tyranny' in a Second Amendment context being otherwise completely okay Cheeto McBribe doing his thing.
Was Trump trying to bribe the Ukrainians to come to the US and seize everyone's guns?
