a Benelli Tactical shotgun a few weeks ago. Good thing.
Woke up to these texts this morning
"Thank God we bought that shotgun"
"Someone came up to our windows at 2AM trying to come in and use our phone."
"I called the police. They acted like I was insane."
"Told me to call back if someone actually broke in."
"Wouldn't even drive past the house."
This was in Albany, NY. 2 fucking blocks from the main police headquarters and those fat-assed, donut eating, pieces of shit are too fucking lazy for a patrol car to drive by. Scumbag at the window didn't like the looks of daughter's boyfriend with a shotgun in his hands and took off.
Anyone without a firearm handy is a fool.
"Why Gun Control Can’t be Solved in the USA https://www.unz.com/forum/why-gun-control-cant-be-solved-in-the-usa/

On average, Democrats (that’s my team*) use guns for shooting the innocent. We call that crime.
On average, Republicans use guns for sporting purposes and self-defense.
If you don’t believe me, you can check the statistics on the Internet that don’t exist. At least I couldn’t find any that looked credible.
But we do know that race and poverty are correlated. And we know that poverty and crime are correlated. And we know that race and political affiliation are correlated. Therefore, my team (Clinton) is more likely to use guns to shoot innocent people, whereas the other team (Trump) is more likely to use guns for sporting and defense.
That’s a gross generalization. Obviously. Your town might be totally different.
So it seems to me that gun control can’t be solved because Democrats are using guns to kill each other – and want it to stop – whereas Republicans are using guns to defend against Democrats. Psychologically, those are different risk profiles. And you can’t reconcile those interests, except on the margins. For example, both sides might agree that rocket launchers are a step too far. But Democrats are unlikely to talk Republicans out of gun ownership because it comes off as “Put down your gun so I can shoot you.”
HEAVEN HELP US ALL
"In response to Krugman’s musings on crime, economist Tyler Cowen tweeted that he is “confused that for the Left ‘guns’ are a big issue, but apparently ‘crime’ is not.”
But there’s a simple explanation. In Democrat speech:
“Guns” means white. “Crime” means black.
So you are supposed to constantly talk up the terrors of gun violence, but downplay crime.
In reality, “gun violence” isn’t some peculiarly white thing. Blacks are even more inclined toward homicides by gun than toward homicides in general. According to the Obama administration’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, the approximately 13% of the population that is black made up 52.5 percent of overall homicide offenders, but 56.9 percent of killers who used guns. So blacks on average are about 8.8 times more lethal with guns than is the rest of the population.
The main practical reason for why Democrats support gun control laws is in the hope of disarming black criminals. But white Democrats can’t come out and say that they want help from their fellow whites in keeping blacks under control. So they constantly lecture the rest of us that the true danger is those vicious rural straight white men with their hunting rifles.
Not surprisingly, this Democratic political strategy of insulting potential allies has proved less than all-conquering over the past 50 years. But Democrats would rather die than tell the truth about whom they actually fear."
The so-called 'mass incarceration', in conjunction with CCW, is WHY the murder rate is lower than 1990. Simple enough. White Americans have rates of violent crime LOWER than the European countries the Left says they want to copy for gun laws. It's not their gun laws that help them be safer, it's their demographics. As their demographics change, and violence rises, we see more and more that the gun laws were never the key factor.
I look forward to a new, bolder breed of politician that answers calls for gun control by exposing the facts, giving people the actual information about what/who is realistically a danger to them, and calling loud and clear for Goon Control.
No good can come from Hillary's ticket regarding firearms, or for that matter most of her platform.
She says she doesn't want to take away our guns,,,,,, do you really think she is telling the truth?
