We all know what happened today.
We all have felt an immense sense of sorrow for those victims in Connecticut.
And, we know what's coming.
I'm posting this thread for us to gather our resources.
Before doing so becomes illegal.
Keep your powder dry, my FRiends.
I’m partial to the RCBS press myself. But either is a good choice.
We all know it’s coming. Are we going to let them disarm us? As soon as I saw how many kids were killed and I saw the little 4th grader being interviewed I could already see the nightly news and MSNBC playing this to the hilt. It’s coming. When the time comes are we going to willingly give up our protection?
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket either. Learn to use a knife and make sure you have a nice collection of fighting blades.
Going to the Nation’s Gun Show in a week or so. I fear a MASSIVE rise in prices for 9mm and .45 rounds. I NEVER buy less than 2 thousand at a time. I like to do 100 rounds a week to keep my skills sharp. We shall see. I carry a S&W 4506 or a CZ-75. Sadly, I am for more accurate with the CZ in 9mm. I guess I will never be quite as deadly with the .45, seeing as how I am 5’ 7” and weigh 150 pounds.
I just got back from the local Army Surplus with a bunch of goodies to make a shoulder holster for when I’m sitting around the house in my PJs. My Crossbreed Supertuck would drop my drawers to my ankles if I tried using it.
Then, my Sons would point and laugh...
Let me predict that we will see some form of new gun control laws due to this incident.
Excellent holsters. I have two:
I’m a north FL freeper transplanted from Kali, CCW since I got here a few years back. Try to stay active...
My guess is that the next phase is going to come and shockingly fast. Today already we have Obama weeping and choking up, and all flags at half-mast.
Next week will be 20 tiny tot coffins with precious teddy bears on top, and photos and home videos galore. It will be the most heart-wrenching show ever produced by the White House-Hollywood-MSM alliance.
A bill will be proposed. If it’s not this one, it may be worse. But this at least. A total ban on magazines capable of holding more than ten cartridges. (Or, ten may be one over the limit, with ten-rounders banned.)
No buyback, no compensation, no grandfather, no sunset. Instant felon if you’re found with an eleven-round “massacre magazine.” This is how Hollywood/MSM will produce this episode over the next two weeks.
Christmas Eve, with all of the tiny tot funerals. The tears will pour like Niagara.
Only a few weak-kneed RINOs in the House need to roll over, and they will. This bill will pass like lightning, we may be shocked how fast.
I thought it would pass in the year after Gabby Giffords, but I was wrong. Let’s see what happens now.
I hope I’m wrong, again.
Try a 1911.
It is sad, very sad. It was a gun free zone. Imagine how many lives could have been saved if just one, just one teacher had a gun.
The local Tanner Gun Show calender for Denver and Pueblo:
If you’re not in a state that already bans hi-cap mags, like my state (CA), I suggest you stock up.
When I’m sitting around the house in my pj’s my weapon is on the table within easy reach. No concealment required.
I used a 1911 from 1981 until about 7 years ago. I LOVE the 1911, but I also “need” the double action/single action I get from the S&W 4506 and the CZ.
Sadly more effective than shots into a packed stadium of football fans.
Amazingly prescient fiction, Matt.
May God have mercy on us all, and especially those families directly affected.
For FReepers who haven’t read them - go here:
Your wise words are exactly what I’ve been thinking all day, FRiend.
Honored to have you at our side.
I don’t have a CCW. I’m gonna get one here in Conn before they take it away.
I love my XD. A great little pistol that corrects the inherent shortcomings of the Glock.
It won’t be a 10 round ban.
I will be a complete ban on handguns and rifles. Maybe shotguns also.
Let ‘me try it. They’ll never put me in a cage. Ever.
I left the state. I moved. Bugged out. I managed to make my work remote (Home office) and left to the west of the Hudson river.
I am imploring all that I know - family, friends. Please leave.
Connecticut is not the state I grew up in. It’s not serene, beautiful nor is it safe for us. The cities have already overflowed their boundaries, and spread like wildfire.
That state is just plain dangerous. And without the law recognising my right to defend myself and those in danger of harm or deadly force - I can’t be there anymore. An environment has been created where there is no good news.
When I return to CT (I rent a room in Newtown) I am just a 10 minute walk to the Elementary school. Newtown CT is a gorgeous, safe town full of good people. It is quintessential New England. I am from this area, have roots here and know (What feels like) most of the town.
Knowing that, please understand my warning to be as serious as I can state: The local CT government is “coming”. At the helm of this at-one-time beautiful state are very angry, very spiteful liberals who are power hungry in ways that we can only try to comprehend. I work for a powerful lobby in CT, and I see the inner operations of the state from the perspective of an infiltrator.
What I saw made me pack up my family and leave. I couldn’t sell my house in time, so I shortsaled and walked away. I ran from this state because things are about to get very bad.
I’m not just dropping words on the internet, being an arm-chair critic or spewing warnings. I lost tens of thousands of dollars in possessions, equipment and business contacts to leave that state. And in doing so, I am building a homestead in the country in an attempt to protect my family from what is about to happen.
God bless us all.
I don't have a CCW but don't fuc@ with me. When government violates my rights as guaranteed by the Constitution I longer obey government. Never liked Hitler types anyway.
>A bill will be proposed.<
And don’t expect our spineless congresscritters to object because they know that, should the nation be disarmed, the law will not apply to them.
Their bodyguards will remain armed in order to defend their precious lives.
You are making a very dangerous assumption.
That the men with power care about the law. They don’t. They never have.
Wow. I moved back here to help my parents as they got older and their health started failing. They have passed on to greater glory, but considering all my family is out west, I think I might have to follow your advice and get out.
My parent’s property is so very special though. A house they had built, good acreage, with one neighbor and a huge state forest across the street and next to them. Bucolic is an apt description.
Amen to that, but sadly common sense seems to be uncommon.
I agree with that for one reason in particular. That is how 0bamugabe works. He demagogues and he is good at getting results with it. I submit the 'fiscal cliff' situation as the most recent example. 'My way or the highway' is how it will be and he will demonize any Republican who resists. The 'fiscal cliff' and gun control are only going to be the beginning of what this lame duck tin horn dictator is going to do too IMO.
As fellow Coloradans you both probably know that Gov. Chickenpooper announced yesterday that he plans on pursuing some kind of ‘assault weapons ban’ here. Now he has additional fuel for that. My own resources are scant so I have not joined GOA for CO but I think I’m going to have to scrape up whatever it takes to back them. If you know of a better, or simply additional, org for CO firearms rights let me know.
The liberal tendency is to act in a knee-jerk manner to all unfortunate incidents. Yes, you are correct: we all know what direction the conversation regarding this unfortunate tragedy is going to stray. We must be diligent to keep the conversation on point and not sink to the level of liberals acting on emotion. Thanks for your post, my FRiend. Be safe, be intelligent, and be prepared to defend yourself and your family.
Bring back the ruler smack on the knuckles of school children.. Bring back the dunce cap.. Force them to say 'excuse me' when they walk by the teacher or make them stay after class, etc, etc. Teach children ethics, humility, honor, respect, honesty, patriotism, etc.. Bring back the father in the home with a wife that doesn't put her JOB above that of her children. CONTROL what your children are doing. Too many children CONTROL their parents! So many more things are wrong!
The problem with fixating on guns is not just the damage it does to individual liberty (although that certainly is bad enough!) but that it misses the big picture. Something is seriously wrong with our society. This guy crossed social taboos that even most criminals respect.
Then too, I can’t help but wonder. I know this will qualify me for a tinfoil hat (fyi, my hat size is seven and a half) but it seems as if these incidents always spike right when the Dems want to have a gun control push. I’m not saying I know anything. I just wonder.
I think so. 20 heart-breaking tiny tot coffins will equal 2,000 football fans at a stadium massacre.
The White House-Hollywood-MSM alliance is about to go into high gear.
Maybe it will happen as in California.
They wrote the act, then sat back.
They then released (the 7th time)known nut Pat Purdy.
He buys a rifle in Oregon.
Then a handgun in California, even passing the Cali waiting period.
Then he shot up the Stockton School yard, and shot himself.
The act, already written, is brought out and voted on and passes, before the facts came in. And Californians lost their right to own certain rifles.
A bill? Or an executive order?
I’m tired of being punished for someone else’s actions, for something for which I had no involvement. But, the lefties that control pretty much all aspects of government don’t care a damn about punishing the innocent. They proved that when they happily championed the slaughter of the most innocent among us (i.e., via abortion).
We WILL see exactly what you said in the coming weeks.
Is there a ‘Police-Force’ (other than the U.S. military) large enough to go door-to-door and confiscate/search our homes or businesses?
Re your post #10, if such a bill becomes law, then our only option, short of risking imprisonment, is to cast our votes against those that enacted such a law, including Republicans—especially Republicans since they would have demonstrated that they are not on our side. That would not be surprise, anyway.
You do realize that this would be just the first in a series of measures to eliminate our gun rights, encirclement and tightening of the noose, if you will.
I think that it is obvious that civil unrest has to follow. If it doesn’t, the next steps will result in loss of liberty, total loss of liberty.
Do you agree?
Yep, 20 tots may = 2,000 football fans.
Rocky Mountain Gun Owners:
No way, they won’t overreach. They’ll get most of what they want with a STRICT ban on mags over ten rounds.
That is a law they can sell to the sheeple easily. Who needs “massacre magazines?”
Banning classes of guns? Not yet.
Talking about magazines as instant felonies is already throwing in the towel in a way and disgraceful as someone who loves the 2A.
Do you think Obama or the MSM give a rat’s rear end about that?
They’ll say, “take it up with SCOTUS, screw you.”
Keep that land. When any kind of turmoil occurs, you will still have it.
But I am telling everyone to get some kind of connection in another state.
I talk to people about being a Refugee. As an American, we can’t imagine the process of taking refuge. We can’t imagine refugee camps at state borders, or even town limits.
A friend of mine (Who passed on last year) fled his native home of Bulgaria, with everything he owned in a bag over his shoulder. He and his brother. When he crossed the border, he had nothing, a knife wound and his brother was killed at the border. That was his home town.
The balkanization of the US can happen. And I can’t stress enough : The Hudson river is a natural border. There are 6 bridges that cross it. It’s a very wide river, and you can expect patrols on it in the efforts of stopping crossers. Checkpoints can be setup at these bridges very easily. Should a “problem” or “event” occur (Anything from economic collapse to an earthquake) all of New England will be cut off from the farms of america. Even a small farm in CT would become a battle ground. You may not be able to occupy it.
Get some kind of friend or family in another state. Expect to have nothing in your possession. That’s what it means to be a refugee.
Expect other states to not accept you. Expect to be turned away at your time of need. Be strong.
An acre in Pennsylvania will do nicely, to back up your land in Connecticut.
