While something bad could happen how is reporting every “suspicious” activity going to help. How do you separate the large volume of unnecessary noise from the actual incidents? This is a basic problem of security in general, large amounts of false data result in you decreasing your sensitivity.
[I spent last weekend using a radio to talk with Eastern and Western Europe, the Philippines, Russia, China, and South America. Thanks to the wonders of modern signal processing pulling people out of the weeds I wouldn’t have otherwise been able to hear or talk with made it that much more fun.
The wonders of modern technology make this an awesome place. I’ve made more contacts through gun blogging and GBC than I would have previously at any other time. I can easily find and independently verify information on my own. It’s a wonderful age, that the media and the gun grabbers I think are starting to hate. It’s too easy for people to figure out the anti-gunner lies, or discover facts they would rather have us not see.
Guns, bringing people from all over the world together. Even kids. -B ]
HB 1016 just passed the senate 47 – 0 with 2 excused. At this point it has to move across Christine’s desk. Normally I would be concerned, but with the overwhelming support from both the house and senate I’m not too concerned.
Supposedly according to the NRA’s facebook page there are those who disagree with the legalization of suppressors claiming they could only be used for nefarious purposes. That’s why absolutely no one showed up to EITHER public hearing to speak out against it here in Washington.
Suppressors are a safety device, if you disagree with suppressors, pull the muffler off your car or shut the hell up!
Running into a cop when he’s having a bad day is starting to look like it will end quite badly for you, he on the other hand will still go home to his family while you’re either dead or forgotten in the back of his cruiser. No worries though because the officer wont be held accountable for their actions.
[I have always been amazed that people seem to think that allowing people to have a choice is some how forcing others into something. People are not being forced into anything, the only changes being made is allowing people the choice to exercise their rights. It baffles my mind how people twist the idea of allowing someone to exercise their rights becomes a violation of their rights.
People seem to love choices as long as the choices are things that they want access too. All too many people are willing to piss on other people’s rights when they don’t like it or disagree with it. The fact is though allowing people to carry arms for self-defense does not interfere with the rights of others, in fact it helps prevent others from interfering with your rights as well as the rights of others. Just the same, rights need to be supported whether you like them or not. -B]
