Mobil link, best I can do.
I'm with you there. The "wild west" myths and misconceptions are not much based on real history, and are mostly a product of 1960's and 70's television.
Someone check on Bloomberg's whereabouts. I suspect he and Mrs. Giffords hands might have spray paint on them!
I kind of like this Commonwealth also, Sam!!!
Post #30, red on red....
I disagree with #30.
Nothing would change the gun or violent crime in the large urban areas of the US, even in 2015.
The reality, the big point most anti-gunners & the left wing media ignore, is that most homicides are red on red or have one dangerous, violent subject killing another dangerous, violent subject.
Crime "victims" do occur but they are in smaller #s than gang shootings, drug or smuggler actions, paid "hits" or other criminal activity.
No mayor, DA or sheriff-police chief is going to state they aren't in control or that street gangs/drug cartels really run their city, .
It flatly amazes me that SOME members here apparently are willing to consider that the addition of bullet holes to these great signs would somehow enhance their effectiveness.
All that a bullet-riddled sign does, is offer silent testimony to the IRRESPONSIBILITY of gun owners in general. To the non-shooting public, a shot-up sign PROVES (in their minds) that ALL gun owners are vandals, jerks, and generally undesirable as citizens.
I've been an active shooter for sixty-plus years, and even *I* think such people are vandals, jerks, and generally undesirable. To inject such behavior into a situation where WE ARE WINNING, is simply s-t-u-p-i-d.
Too bad Pa. is so restrictive and maintains a registry, though they claim it's illegal to maintain a registry.
PA restrictive?? And they do what???
However, there is the PSP's database of handgun sales records which is "not a registry" but kind of acts like a quasi-registry with woefully incomplete records.
Separate names with a comma.
