Re: what will happen to our gun rights?

so my daughter's rifle:

$49.99 - stripped lower
10.66 - shipping & FFL ($25 FFL + $7.00 shipping / 3 lowers in one order)
59.95 - lower build kit (caught a screaming sale)
260.00 - complete upper, shipped. 5.56 chamber, 1/9 barrel, carbine length
======
$380.60 - Total, including shipping & FFL fees.

Now, doing this took time. I gave her the lower 2 christmases back, the lower kit last christmas. She paid for the upper, but I wanted her to get a 1/8 or 1/9 barrel & PSA almost always only puts the 1/7's on sale, so when I showed her the midway upper she was "Yep, let's get one of those" & she had the cash for it, so now she has her rifle.

Now it just needs a scope & mount, am watching for deals.

grandfather doesn't get it. I have no obligation or intention of engaging in a fair fight with anyone who invades my home, or attacks me anywhere.

Re: what will happen to our gun rights?

The natural right to bear arms enshrined in the Second Amendment was previously reflected in the English Bill of Rights (which also saw it as a preexisting right). That right was written down after Kings and Parliaments disarmed their opposition and raised their own militias to quash political foes.

It looks like Venezuela’s socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro is trying to play from that despicable centuries-old playbook, arming up his loyalist militia to put down the citizens his nation has disarmed.

Embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced plans Monday to expand the number of civilians involved in armed militias as tensions in the crisis-wracked South American nation continued to rise.

Maduro said he hopes to expand the number of civilians involved in the Bolivarian militias created by the late Hugo Chavez to 500,000, up from the current 100,000, and provide each member with a gun.

Speaking to thousands of militia members dressed in beige uniforms gathered in front of the presidential palace to mark the force’s seventh anniversary, Maduro said it is time for Venezuelans to decide if they are “with the homeland” or against it.

“Now is not the time to hesitate,” he said.

The announcement comes as Maduro’s opponents are gearing up for what they pledge will be the largest rally yet to press for elections and a host of other demands Wednesday.

Thousands of Venezuelans have taken to the streets since the Supreme Court stripped the National Assembly of its last vestiges of power nearly three weeks ago, a decision it later reversed. At least five people have been killed, dozens hurt and more than 100 detained in the demonstrations.

Tyrants have always disarmed the general citizenry to protect their own power bases, and have built their power bases by co-opting the military. In many instances, they’ll also form militias out of their cult followers, using them as a force to either cancel-out the military if they think military leadership may oppose them, or in cases where they don’t want dirty tricks linked to the government directly, they use these militias to tyrannize the citizenry into compliance with the fig leaf of having plausible deniability.

In Venezuela, it appears Maduro is going straight Third World strongman, and is using his militia to terrorize his citizens into compliance, even as his socialist policies destroy one of the richest nations in South America (in terms of natural resources).

Intelligent citizenries with a sense of history will never listen to governments that demand they disarm “for the common good.”

The “common good” is always abused by dictators and tyrants.

Demonstrations are turning bloody in Venezuela even now, and a teenager was murdered by one of Maduro’s armed militiamen in Caracas today.

He will not be the last to fall, in a nation that unwisely listened to the government’s demand to disarm.

Re: what will happen to our gun rights?

...and with the fake central bank money he will succeed. It's the same reason our own county is in such a shithole. The central bankers make it so.

A true story by an authentic author is all you need to read "Confessions of an economic hitman".

But then there is this about the author of that book--

Before Confessions, Perkins wrote five books on shamanism and
indigenous cultures. All of his efforts — Confessions included — are
full of dreams and visions. In The World Is as You Dream It, he takes
the hallucinogen ayahuasca and sees a flock of what I took for birds
that turns out to be the Wright brothers in small airplanes that zoom
overhead, and later finds himself surrounded by dangerous, speeding
cars. Sometimes I wondered whether I had gone too far, Perkins wrote in
another book. There were many occasions when I feared that I might be
losing my sanity and the ability to discern between the different
levels of reality. (A blogger known as the Opinionated Bastard writes,
Given that his last few books were on shamanism, I was deeply skeptical
that John didn't just make up the whole thing after a little too much
peyote. The Bastard has a point.)

Dreams are important, Perkins contends, because they enable the
dreamer to visualize a different future, and then shapeshift to fit it.
This shapeshifting takes three forms: There's cellular, which involves
actual physical transformation, such as cancer or aging, or becoming
something else, like a jaguar or a tree. (Or a piece of furniture:
Jessica Perkins swears her father once disappeared into thin air during
a game of hide-and-seek, then reappeared a few minutes later,
explaining, “I shapeshifted into the chair.”)

You may want to troll this thread with some fresher bait.... 7+ years is a little dated. The suicide rates are interesting though..... I wonder if they included "assisted" suicides in the totals?

Bring on some fresher stats if you wish. I doubt much has changed and that's why I decided to go for that one. Pretty decent source too.

While you're at it, please explain why you concider it to be trolling as soon as someone is not sharing your perspective of things?
