Me too.  I like to know what is going on so I always watch the local news in the morning why I am getting ready for work.  You are right about the media not reporting on lots of things too.  I think they pretty much report only issues that further the stations agenda.  Kind of like CNN favors the Clintons and FOX favors Trump.  I have to laugh sometimes when they have an opposing view representative on there and they end up talking over each other.

I don't think we need more gun control laws though.  I do think we need to put some teeth in the ones we have.  How could a person that was on the FBI watch list twice, still get a concealed weapons permit or firearms license in the state of Florida?  Sounds like one government agency not talking to another to me!

State of Florida's government is all screwed up.
Dear Lord, On this day, please wrap your arm around my shoulder and keep your hand over my mouth.  Amen

I think all the state governments have their issues but some are definitely worse than others. 

In this case though I think the FBI is the one that dropped the ball.  There was even a report that a gun shop filed saying that this person was trying to buy ammo in large bulk quantities.  They didn't sell to him but what happened to the report?  It probably sat on someone's desk and then conveniently got burried when it came out that a report had been made.  This kind of stuff isn't dug into especially by the media that favors more gun control and outlawing the most popular semi-auto rifle in the word.

I imagine most of you saw this on Facebook but if you didn't it's worth seeing the entire thing.  This guy is right!  He is addressing the Greensboro, NC city council which was considering cancelling a gun show due to the Parkland Florida shooting.

Scott got a new gun this week.  He got an M & P shield 45.  He had an M & P Shield 40, but wanted to standardize all our guns.  he already had 2 45s one of which I'd been asking him to give me.  So now I have my 45 and he has 2.  he was able to trade the 40 for the 45. even swap.

Outstanding!  Smith & Wesson makes a very popular handgun.  You can get the shield in a number of calibers and it is small enough that it is easily concealed when carrying. 

Standardization is a plus when buying ammo.  I tried to get Dianna to go with a 9mm when she got her last pistol but she really likes the .380.  So right now I have 2 - 9mm and Dianna has a .380 and a .32.

Yes, we have 2 - Ruger Mark III pistols that are great for plinking.  Mine is the standard with the 5" bull barrel and Dianna's is the 22/45 model that is on a polymer frame so it's about 14 ounces lighter.  I just read the other day that Ruger has discontinued the Mark III now that the Mark IV is out.  The Mark III is really hard to clean because of the take-down process.  The Mark IV is much simplified.  These are great guns for learning to shoot and for teaching others about gun safety.  Because they are .22 LR, they are much less expensive than the other calibers.

Sounds like you and Scott need to come up for a day on the range.  I've got plenty of targets.  Just bring your ammo and weapons!

  i'm thinking that we might while he is off work. i'd like him to have a chance to see how he shoots now.

and i want a 22 for plinking.  i just don't have it yet.  the 45 was an unexpected thing.  the 22 was the next gun on the buy list.  but we had the 40, and getting an even trade for the 45 was just too good to pass up.

Another great speech.  This one by a Representative from Virginia.  Makes a lot of sense.
