Yes, we've been down this road several times here on this forum.
I don't see much point in it. It just raises the irritation levels, and isn't going to accomplish anything.

Not to hijack things, but nice job on the stainless steel exhaust system, Ace!  It looks great and it sure would be nice to have a system that won't rust out.

It is simply that we Great Americans have forgotten the "Walk softly" part of carrying the Big Stick ........

I'm about to take a big stick to my local PD desk!

Man it finally shows up today, gunshop says come and get it! Off I go and while we're filling out the paperwork he says "got your pistol permit?' Huh...what??

Well hell wouldn't you know it because it has a folding stock its considered a pistol and requires a local PD permit. My local PD only happens to be open one day of the week from 7-3..... and that was yesterday ::)

I'll never buy another modern gun that i can't buy in person. Between the fees, mistakes, time involved, and number of people it ain't worth it!

Excuse me while I give myself a swirly!

I am amazed that this thread went as well is it has. That my friends is a tribute to the quality of the folks on this forum.

Papa Jaun: I want to point out one aspect of American History. Yes, the colonists had firearms & those that didn't need them didn't. The firearm was a necessary part of life for the majority. Many of the out lying villages/towns kept small arsenals of guns, powder & shot for emergency situations (Indian raids/attacks, etc). However, the British King ordered the military to confiscate all colonial firearms, powder & shot. It was not the Tax on Tea, but firearm confiscation that precipitated "The Shot Heard Around the World" at Concord Bridge & Lexington Green.

Many good points have been expressed. All coming from individual perspectives. As for me: I'm a NRA-LM; Hunter, reloader, collector; My children learned early to respect & use firearms; I am licensed for Curio & Relic (C&R), & concealed carry.

I truly believe in our Constitution & that without our 2nd Amendment we would not have our 1st Amendment. We are a country the relies on the Rule of Law.

Yes, we have far too many gun laws that are rediculous. Where is the accountability/responsibiilty for doing something wrong. Thanks, I'm done.  :)

Point well taken, Br. VMAX.  We, the early 1960s Cubans, should have taken a page off the 1700s colonists!  Yes, we are a country that "relies on the Rule of Law."  Just in case, my body will still be warm if -- and I hope nobody ever changes our Constitution (P.S.) -- the powers that be come for my firearms!

P.S. The man who has made Jimmy Carter look like an outstanding president has made a couple of scary Supreme Court appointments, my friend!
