Hey folks,

I have to admit, I love reading some of your tag lines better than your posts. I usually cut and paste them to a document that I'm building. I'm not very creative so I have to enjoy what others say. I'll never claim them as my own, but I do share them with friends.

One of my most recent favorites:

"Enjoy the ride, no one gets out alive" I assume referring to life itself. Well said.

Keep up the good work.

I'm quite fond of many signature lines on this forum, though I do particularly like mine.

Interesting as this topic is, it's not really gun related. :uhoh:

No, but most of the signatures are... so it's sort of meta-related.

I particularly like your sig lines too, especially the quote by Sam :)

Love that John Wayne one you have. My all time favorite quote is a John Wayne one.

"Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid.”

I think my favorite quote of all time came from Charles Barkley. "Somebody had to be me. It might as well be me!"

It's even better when you know the difference between "lose" and "loose"

Haha, thanks! I fixed it. Improper grammar is a pet peeve of mine, but unfortunately spelling is not my strong point.

I have the same issue if I haven't used the word in a long time.

IMO, some of the best lines ever spoken were from John Wayne.

It's a little ironic that someone who wants to TACTICAL the thread may very well DE-RAIL it.

HDC,

I laughed very loudly when I read that. Well played, sir.

Something that I say towards those annoying "my Glock is better than your pistol" people: "Glocks, simple guns for simple people"

That came to be after seeing the argument by Glock fanboys that you'll forget a external safety or that it'll flip itself on, 1911s are unsafe and they break a lot etc.

No hate directed to Glock fans that think clearly. Too bad I don't have a good tag line for HK fanboys, they are the second most annoying fanboys.

Folks,

Let's keep this firearms related.

My sig line comes from my interest in the formation of gun laws. I wanted to know how come the laws are the way they are and what was the motive and the political atmosphere at the time when they were drafted and signed into law.

It is amazing how bordering states could have such radically different laws. Like Kentucky verses Illinois. New Hampshire verses Massachusetts. New Jersey versus Pennsylvania. Ironically one of the better states for gun rights (Kentucky) was also the first to have a gun control law signed into in 1813 restricting conceal carry.

http://concealedguns.procon.org/sourcefiles/concealedhistory.pdf


I spent quite a bit of time researching the history of New Jersey's gun control laws. I have friends who still live there and NJ is so out of step with the rest of the country and I wanted to see why this was the case.

The person who drafted NJ's 1966 gun control law (which requires fingerprints, references, criminal and mental background checks, fees and long waits for an ID card) ... was Attorney General Arthur Sills. Sills also helped give Thomas Dodd ideas and input when Dodd was drafting the 1968 Gun Control Act.

In fact I need to do a synopsis of the hearings for the New Jersey's 1966 martial law approach to gun control. It was a fascinating read how the hearings were conducted and how opposition to the bill was marginalized.

Before 1966, NJ was pretty much like other states in the U.S. with the exception of handguns which needed a permit to purchase since 1954. Although one could legally purchase a handgun in another state through interstate commerce before 1968 GCA.

Massachusetts and Illinois forearms card schemes got their inspiration from New Jersey's Firearms ID Card law in 1966. Illinois started their Firearms card scheme in 1968. Massachusetts was later, although I don't have the exact date on that.

About 1967 is when New York City started requiring people to have a license to own a rifle, supposedly Mayor Lindsey at the time was one of the people behind the law. Of course New York's Sullivan Law was probably the most widely known early gun control legislation from 1911.

Throw money at it, and attach many things to it.

Nawh, the Apple fanboys are the most annoying -- simple computers for simple minds... Apple only put one button on their mouse because they figured that their users weren't smart enough to handle two buttons. With the iPad, they have ZERO buttons, so they figure that the users of the iPad aren't even smart enough to handle a SINGLE button. The more I deal with these people though, the more I'm convinced that this is right...

Folks,

Let's keep this firearms related.

I only have experience with those two fanboys either way but I get what you are saying.

I find them an annoying distraction. They clutter up threads. And they're also an often used loophole to this forum's general spirit.

I had a bad day. Nevermind...

I've always thought that if you needed to analyze a sig line, it misses the point.

This is not particular relevant, nor does or did it trend toward being gun related. Closed
