Re: Guns, Guns Everywhere

Almost all jurisdictions that I know of prohibit the drinking of drinking of alcohol while carrying. The law isn't so much get drunk with a gun, as no longer making a place off limits. The bar down the street from me has awesome burgers, but I couldn't carry there and get one. In some places, an App...

Re: Guns, Guns Everywhere

Seriously, there have been times in my life where I literally could not leave my apartment without a knife in my back pocket, and if I'd been able to scrape up the money to buy a gun I'd have carried one of those as well. And I never, ever want to be in that place in my head again. It is not health...

My question is... Has there ever been a time where a Randomly concealed Gun STOPPED someone from killing someone else? Someone shoes up, starts shooting people, and is stopped by some "Law Abiding America" who pulls their gun? Clackamas Mall Shooting 2012. Shooter is challenged by a person carrying...

Re: US government Shutdown

Strange, I thought the TSA was being payed, that they were considered "essential services". I know the NSA is still at work spying on americans because they are considered "essential". They're considered essential and required to report, like CBP and air traffic control. Pay is delayed until the ne...

Re: What happens when a world joins the UFP?

Weren't there a couple instances of all Vulcan crewed "standard" Starfleet ships?

Re: Room mate advice (pending eviction of room mate)

Any way to have them removed from the lease and then tell them to get the hell out? Not if they're unwilling. In most states even if someone is not on the lease and they've been in a dwelling for 30 to 60 days and aren't trespassing they've "Established Residency". This was a big issue when I worke...

Re: New Robocop teaser

Or since the SWAT team knew they were dealing with Robo they came loaded with AP or steel cored ammo versus the regular jacketed lead ammo that the rehabs would have been using.

In the first movie they show up with a light machine gun, shotguns, and assault riffles and a grenade launcher.

I may be wrong, but hadn't been that skin identified as plastic shaped as Murphy's face in Robocop 2 ?

I feel like if I'm going to have to pay this tax I should be paying for something, not being penalized.

We used to have that nationwide in the US. It passed in the 1960s as part of a wave of gun control legislation back then, and it wasn't repealed until 1986.
I believe California just started doing it again.

Re: Monitor Issue

It had started whining every now and again the last few months. It's 4 years old, I think I'm just going to replace the thing. I should probably just get a whole new system while I'm at it.
