with what laws are considered to be "tough" or not, or what laws in different states are actually in place pertaining to such... but, IMO, there should be clear limits and controls on what type, how many, and where or how people are allowed to acquire, use, store or carry deadly weapons.

  • I grew up in MA with some of the toughest gun lawsSia☺giah, Tue Oct 3 10:51pm
    Not as tough as NY, but pretty strict, nevertheless. Even so, those of us who followed the laws & rules had NO PROBLEM owning legal firearms. We weren't prevented from using them as they were... more
    • You are always so reasonable.PH👏🏾👏🏾EY, Wed Oct 4 11:35am
      But there are laws already. No one is allowed to own a tank. And no one is allowed to legally own a machine gun, except perhaps in a collector's niche with legal caveats. Am I incorrect in suggesting ... more

            And when I ask police officers who are my friends, they don't care if I have a gun or not. Usually when I get pulled over and offer them my license and inform them that I am armed, they laugh and... more

                          Generally you are. But you are delusional if you think I am bat shit crazy. Now what was your question. You stated the cops are your friends.

                            It's explosive, but is that crazy? Bat pee combines with the nitrates to produce ammonium nitrate. If that's left over energy in the waste, what energy must be harvested by the body, to afford... more

                                • Absolutely not. Sia☺giah, Fri Oct 6 11:39pm
                                  My husband owns a bazillion firearms. Once upon a time, he only owned two. He is not more nor less "dangerous" now than when he only owned two. The volume of firearms one owns is NOT indicative of... more

                                  If one is an out of shape 64 year old, maybe 4. And that is pushing it. Somehow the Patsy "thought" he would be of greater virility if he lugged into the snipers' lairs 24 heavy fully automatics. But ... more
