    Interesting that in that vid they both agree they would not shoot at someone. over property, making the point if someone wants your car let them take it.
    How do you know that is all they are going to do when they are coming at you?
    I don't see it as shooting to protect property. I see it as protecting my or others life

    I think it's question each person has to make for themselves. What is too far. I draw the line in this way. I need my car to care for my family and do my job. without it, I'm screwed. If they want to take my car and I'm armed I have to defend my right to keep my car. So I would shoot to protect my right to that car. Same as if I lived in the 1800's and someone wanted to steal my horse. Of course I will always defend my home and my family and use deadly force to protect them. Now with that said, If I am being mugged and someone wants my wallet, I'd probably just give it to them. There is nothing in my wallet worth killing someone over. That same mugger threatens my wife and it's on like Donkey Kong.

    When you buy a gun, the first thing you will do is start to think of all the scenarios you might be forced to use it. Then you have to determine if it is prudent or lawful in that scenario to use deadly force. Finally you will likely apply your own moral code to how and when you will use this force.

    I think they were coming from this place when they made the statement they would just let them take the car.

    Update.

    I just purchased a Fostech Echo Trigger for my AR for those that don't know, it is a binary trigger that fires a single shot when you pull the trigger but it also fires a second shot when you release the trigger. It's the closest thing to rapid fire you can legally get. here is a video on this badass trigger.

    NICS checks up 61% YOY in Sept, continuing the record-breaking pace
    An estimated 28.8M guns have been sold through Sept 2020
    Which already surpasses 2019's record totals, with 3 months to go

    Given that we have been assured protests are peaceful, I dont know what could possibly be leading to such a surge ......

    Government: “we are here to have you register your AR 15.”

    Me: “I don’t have one, I sold it to oububba”

    Apparently mine was originally purchased by a sheriff in East Texas. It’s not stolen - just random trades and purchases.

    I remember a boating accident...I just don't remember the lake. If you can find that lake, you can find the guns.

    What's that? Police report? Nah. They weren't stolen. It was a simple boating accident. Capsized and then we turned it back over...there were no injuries, so no need to get authorities involved.

    Think poll tax... now we have gun tax... disenfranchising the poor? Only the rich and elite can own what the Constitution guarantees?

    I think they are just trying to find new inventive ways of circumventing the 2A, Heller, et al. If this fails, it will be something else

    For you legal scholars, would this be something that could be initiated via executive order, or would this require a new law to be passed?

    It's my opinion that it would require a bill from Congress because it's a tax, similar to the individual mandate (which Obama denied was a tax but was bailed out by the Supreme Court).

    I suppose we could call it a fee. But it's not universal such as having to pay a fee for a social security card. But that reimburses the government for printing and overhead. This is not reimbursing the government for any out of pocket costs for on demand service.

    I only have two samari swords. I’ve already identified my republican friend who gets to put me down. He will be gentle. He helped me with a dog awhile back.

    The only automatics I had were an Mp40 and a Mg42. Great fun to use, but really tore through the ammo. I sold them some years back to a movie production company for a nice sum. Still have a K98 Mauser (1941 issue) with bayonet and an M1 Garand (1943 issue). Much easier on the cost of ammo.

    that K98 Mauser w/bayonet makes a perfect social distance measure. If the tip is red you are too close

    Anyone have a special place they like to go to get cheap ammo? I'm having trouble finding 9mm and .556.

    I just bought 100 rounds of.556 from Freedom Munitions online. They were not cheap though.

    You sold Hitler’s buzzsaw? I’d have moved into a cardboard box before I’d have let that go, just for the sound alone.

    I paid $3.65/round for my 6.5 creedmoor hornady precision hunter ammo. I’m grouping inside 1” at 300 yards so I need good ammo. I don’t have time to reload.

    Cheaper than dirt has selection. Most online stores don’t carry much if anything in stock anymore. Prices are going to skyrocket. I have 1,600rounds. 2K should be the goal for personal inventory.

    You want to register my gun? Sure, no problem. It's right behind that sign 100 yards behind the house. Yes, keep walking... the one with concentric circles with the red dot in the middle.

    That's a funny visual...guy pops up out of cardboard box with an Mg42 and scares the hell out of everyone around. Great news headlines! Yeah, it wasn't easy to let it go, but the money they offered for it was eye popping. I had to ask them to repeat it twice. Tried to work a deal with a guy that has an original Mp40 but he wants too much. Made him an a generous offer at the time, but he refused. I hear he's in need of money now, so eventually he'll come back around, but my next offer will not be generous.

    I'm guessing you payed $150 to $200 for your purchase?

    My local gun store is selling 500 rounds for $699. You can buy 20 rounds at the Bracken gun store in Bracken TX for $26.99 limit 3 boxes.

    prices right now are ridiculous, I have over 1,000 rounds of .556 so I'm good with that, but finding reasonabily priced 9mm is impossible. 270 win is next to impossible to find at any price.

    $130 including shipping. I’ve been buying in Nashville for about a dollar per round, but lately none in stock. I’m at 1,500 rounds of .556 and another 1,000 rounds of other ammunition for other rifles, pistols and shot guns.

    Nothing is better for ammo/gun sales than a Democratic president. It's like there's something to that. Hmmmmm.

    I hate to say this but I think we have lost the war.

    I'd love to post videos about all the gun legislation happening but it's no longer a "could happen" it's now going to happen.

    My suggestion, is hide your guns, bury them take them to a gun safe county here in Texas or move to a gun sanctuary state, but the law is pretty clear the liberals are at the door to take them. Ammo is no longer the issue it's protecting your property from Nazi America.

    My new strategy is simple, become gray man. Blend in as much as possible, keep my head down and my mouth shut. Give no one any reason to suspect anything, it's a sad time we live in but just around the corner the SHTF is going to happen so prepare yourself. The America of 2019 is gone and the next few years is going to be hell for all Americans.
