Do we want him in charge of our history?
If I got a return trip.....I go back to March 1886 to be with General Crook when he met Geronimo at Cañon de los Embudos in Mexico.
Better Custer than Biden!!!!! Oooops, politics .. .... sorry.
not be available later down the road-but one NOW."
My second visit would be to March of 2004, when I foolishly sold the Winchester 94AE that my now departed father bought me as my first rifle. I would tell my foolish, albeit now older self that you'll soon be living in Alaska, and you'll need that rifle. (When I sold it, I hadn't fired it in well over a decade, and didn't think I would ever go hunting-to say nothing about the sentimental value.)
There was an episode of the newer version of "The Outer Limits" back in the 90s that did a variation of that story. The variation was that the future guy ended up replacing JFK at the plaza in Dallas and JFK went back to the future and became a history instructor.
After loading up on my briefcase full of
new handguns and my 2 early 60's vintage
Marlin lever guns , I'd be looking up some of
the women from back then I had crushes on
when I was young, and asking them out.
Starting with Ann Margret
This shows how my memory is failing me. It was a 1986 "Twilight Zone" episode with (believe this !) Andrew Robinson (the killer in the first "Dirty Harry" movie - also Elim Garak on "Deep Space 9") as JFK.
Apparently, Key & Peele already tried this. Stick around for the end of the clip (about 2 mins). The 2A is indestructible.
Part of that plan would be re-enforcing the concept of the Second Amendment as being an individual right.
A 7mm-08 barrel on a Model 88 would be awesome! A .358 barrel on one would be pretty sweet too, IMO.
If you read much speculative physics the general consensus (among people even willing to entertain discussing fringe stuff like this) is that time travel into the future is much more likely to be a possibility than travel into the past. As a gross simplification the flow of time only moves in one direction. The past no longer exists to travel to, but the future does.
If I could travel into the future I would come back with a crate of Gen (X) Glocks and put them on GunBroker one at a time. The fanboys would make me a gazillionaire.
I'm already doing that - the hard way... .
Then I’d show them how their (founding fathers) words are used to block reasonable gun control measures.
That’s all I’d do: show them the future of firearms. They are smart dudes, they could figure out better than I how to address the 2nd Amendment once they have the facts.
Be sure to take a couple actual assault weapons and maybe an F-15 or two to show them what those "hi-cap mags" in those hopped up .22 semi auto rifles could possibly be up against. I don't think it would turn out the way you think it would.
