    Act now I guess. You know, before they are all sold out...
    I had the misfortune to overhear this nonsense being spouted off at an elementary school function this evening.
    I was ordered not to inject myself into this conversation so I refrained from informing several misguided parents the actual facts of what they were discussing.
    The most disturbing aspect was how completely and utterly sure the speaker was of this and some other "facts".
    Or maybe it was how the others in the group took it as actual truth and swore immediate action.
    Mind boggling.
    I was half tempted to see how far I could push it.
    "Gold jewelry has been found toxic!
    Quick, hand it over, I happen to be a licensed disposal expert, as a cavorted I will waive my fee because I care about your safety!"
    Or some such nonsense. Feel free to make up your own as well!

    And you "wonder" what's wrong with the kids coming out of schools now days?

    The less people know about their subject, the firmer their opinions are. It is as if ignorance is a point of view.

    and still, they probably knew as much as those who author our gun laws. Dianne Finestien knows about as much about guns [or less] than my dentist. why are those least qualified allowed to be our leaders?

    Although it might be a arguing with idiots moment please set these idiots straight. If you are able to stop the :barf:information:barf: that they are spouting, maby just maby the other parents will listen. I have a hard time letting a blow hard poison children's minds.

    My Wal-Mart sold XM855, which I believe is military overrun that Federal sells to the public. It will certainly shoot through 3/8" mild steel. Not sure on the rocket launchers though.

    So is there a limit at Wally World on rocket launchers. Limit five per customer? I've personally never seen them but sign me up! Probably make for some great coyote hunting. I just hope I don't have to pay for a $200 tax stamp for it.

    Your school admin. must be the same bunch that have outlawed the mini toy soldiers that could have tiny toy weapons hidden in their plastic clothing.:D

    SERIOUSLY the term "educated idiots" rings true in many instances as of late sadly.

    People are extremely stupid and gullible.

    My wife called me today and frantically asked if the assault weapons ban had passed. I told her no, that they hadn't even voted on it yet and she then explained to me that my brother in law was telling here that the ban had just passed.

    I got him on the phone and told him to calm down and stop being so ignorant. I then explained to him that the ban was unlikely to pass given the current political climate and told him to wait a few months until the panic buyers started selling their rifles.

    I predict that six months from now when all of this crap has cooled off and people have calmed down, there will be dirt cheap AR15's in every gun store.

    I hope so. For the right price, I'd pick one up "just because."

    Well, it has to be true cause a Lib said so... AND did you know that they sell ammo for shooting at Monopoly Boards? The box said "GAME" on it. The Zombies will be coming soon, cause they wouldn't sell ammo marked "ZOMBIE" on it if they wasn't coming. But most of all, Winchester is the worst, as they want us to shoot at cripples because they have shotgun shells that are marked "HANDICAP".

    Military grade 5.56 ammo despite the higher pressures and muzzle velocities lacks the expansion properties of hunting.sporting bullets in SP and Hp (not withstanding the MK318 SOST rounds). There could be an argument put forth (if allowed) that it is less damaging to tissue on impact. I know this might be a little deep for most lib gun grabbing neophytes.

    Well, nobody is ever going to tell me to keep out of any conversation where pure lies and fantasy are being spread. I feel like it is my duty, and the duty of every responsible gun owner to say something, to educate the uneducated. Try to stop me.

    Who exactly "ordered" you not to inject yourself in the conversation? Seems like they knew very well they were spreading BS and didn't want you ruining the fun.

    Some "issues" easily get the "town`s people" all stirred up. Just like the old Westerns.
    Somebody is in front of the masses, who are carring torches, yelling, Wal-Mart is selling this or that. Lets get-um!!

    Hard to believe, people can`t seem to think for themselves.

    From the OP: "misguided parents"

    Twiki, why do you blame the schools for the foolishness of some parents???

    I here misinformation from both sides every day, but have never heard a pro gun person say Wal Mart is selling RPG`s.

    The THR threads are replete with words from misinformed pro gun people.
