  1. He's going through and deleting his twitter over the last 24 hours. Likely to rid his history of many more colorful gems.
  2. He's a real piece of work. Anti gun grabber "true believer". It's no wonder that he's been propped up for the job by the Bloomberg folks.
  3. How many dogs has David Chipman killed? Regardless of the number, expect it to go up soon.
  4. Agreed on all points here. I'd recommend getting the largest 9mm that you can each comfortably hold (if you're only going to get one gun), but ideally, you'd each have your own. .380 is a decent round, but it's more of a specialty round than 9mm. It's much harder to find right now, and it doesn't do anything better than 9mm. Felt recoil in a mouse gun is going to be high, and in a compact size I haven't noticed much difference between 9mm and .380acp. Capacity is exactly the same. Don't train for the first time on a micro .380 or micro anything... get something larger so that you'll want to come back and keep shooting. You're going to be far more inaccurate with a smaller pistol and it's going to be much harder to hit your target with a short barrel. Make it easy on yourself and go with a compact or full size pistol. Try out as many guns as you can before purchasing. Each grip angle, trigger, and other ergonomics are going to make a difference. 9mm is the most common handgun round in the world. You can't go wrong with it as a starting point.
  5. You seem to forget which party stole won the election Will they be able to 'steal' 60 votes? If not, then what's the concern?
  6. This is maybe the 4th or 5th time she's filed the same AWB. Nothing new to see here. The only concern is if the fillibuster gets dismantled. Otherwise, this is a non-starter.
  7. None of their "demands" address the root causes of any of the violence that they claim to be against. They are dogmatically attacking guns as the source of the problem. It's a cash grab by all of these Bloomberg affiliated agencies. They all but say it in this demand. Bloomberg paid for Biden's position on guns, and now he's coming to collect. He wants the money back with interest.
  8. What a load of hockey pucks. I got my Utah renewal in about 2 weeks without finger prints. They had no problem confirming my identity. I'm going on month 9 for my IL renewal. This bill would have POSSIBLY (but not probably) stopped one shooting, and balance that against the people who can't legally defend themselves because the state refuses to do their job... This law does nothing to address gang violence. That epidemic is one that lawmakers allow to continue unhindered, because they don't care that young black men are shooting other young black men.
  9. CCL renewal is going on 8 months now. Recently got the Utah renewal in just over 2 weeks. Easy process, and it cost $20.
  10. We need to stop giving away our rights for free. Taking two rights and then saying "oh I'll only take one instead, it's a win for you, right?!?" is a tactic that needs to be called out for what it is... if they want to ban 80%s, then they need to take suppressors and SBRs off the GCA.
  11. Just because they stopped taking comments doesn't mean that they're not banning pistol braces. It just means that they're not going to give us an opportunity to voice our opinions.
  12. "Fix the FOID" will only serve to keep people from expressing their constitutional rights, because it will obviously lead to longer delays, and more red-tape for would-be lawful gun owners. If you want to "fix the FOID" (other than getting rid of it), then pass a law that requires all funds brought in on FOID and CCL fees to be used for implementing those programs. Any leftover money gets returned to the people who had to pay the fees, rather than diverted into the general fund or for pet projects of law makers.
  13. My right to keep and bear arms certainly extends to making my own without government infringement. ^ this *** Yes. It's perfectly legal to make your own firearms. If someone is prohibited from owning firearms, then they should be deal with if they break the law.
  14. https://joebiden.com/gunsafety/ And yet it's happening under Trump's watch. Why isn't he doing something about it?
  15. If they gave permission to sell the unfinished receiver as an unregulated part because it couldn't be "readily be converted" how is selling a kit of other unregulated parts illegal? They seam to be leaning very heavily on the "readily be converted" clause when they say it meets the definition, possibly because their kit contained a jig? Seems like a pretty big leap. None of the other parts are possibly regulated under any current law. This is more overreach by the ATF for sure... but unfortunately no one will put them in line, and once the transition happens it's even less likely to occur.
  16. He has stated this is how he's going to get gun control done, and recognizes it's limitations. He has intent, but will he spend political capitol to get Bloomberg's bidding done? If it's true, It's good news, no matter how you slice it. I guess if you like to constantly be on defense his intentions are great. Personally, I get a littlle tired of it. We're always on defense. That's the nature of the game. I don't like it, but this is what it is.
  17. That's assuming that every single Democrat will vote for gun control. Be kind, contact your representatives, and stay in their business. They won't pass any significant gun control without EOs, that's my guess.

    Definitely on my radar as well.
  21. Waits of 180 days aren't unusual right now, unfortunately. There are multiple lawsuits over this but unfortunately, Covid is slowing the process down on all sides. https://bearingarms.com/cam-e/2020/10/14/illinois-lawsuits-foid-card-delays/
  22. How can you "buy back" something that you never owned? Modern Sporting Rifles aren't the root of all evil, and certainly aren't "weapons of war". More people are murdered with hands and feet than AR-15s every year. This is a solution in search of a problem. Or: a way for the Democratic base to get riled up about something to pretend like this is a solution to the gang violence that occurs.
