    Just so LEO knows, I've taken all my high-capacity revolvers and restricted them to either 6 or 8 rounds. Hope that you're happy Murphy. Seriously though, contrary to popular belief, I do own a fair number of bottom-feeders,and an AR or two, also. I spent about three hours on Thursday combing the house for any mags >10 rounds, and then bagging and tagging them. They all now reside, happily, with my son in PA. I then placed an order for some compliant mags for those guns for which I didn't already have some on hand. I really have a problem with wrapping my mind around making a law that applies retroactively. How we are made felons by the mere stroke of a pen, based on goods that were 100% legal when purchased, and worse yet - still legal in the majority of locales in this country. It really galls me to be able to walk out of my house with items that could put me in jail, walk less than 3/4 of a mile and be legal again. Here's hoping that the Supreme Court rectifies this injustice. I'd wish for the liberals to get their collective heads out of their a$$es, but that doesn't seem very likely - they're too busy trying to appear to be "doing something" even though it has zero impact on the problem. Rant off. Adios, Pizza Bob

    Don't care if I'm offending someone with my straight white male gender shaming toxic masculinity or whatever other offenses I may be committing, I'll keep holding the door because it is the polite thing to do. Guys, girls, or whatever of the other 67 genders you might identify as, I don't particularly care.

    It doesn't sound like this woman at the range objected to the door being opened. She was just being friendly and trying to return a courtesy... which is always fine. Personally? I think any woman who objects to a man opening a door has... issues... issues that it's no one's responsibility but her own (and perhaps her shrink) to resolve. Personally... as I see it, I was blessed with many strengths... but upper body strength is certainly not one of them! I have long had a pet peeve with nearby malls that have entrance doors that are so heavy it's like trying to enter a crypt. I usually mutter under my breath: must have been designed by a man! I mean, malls are populated disproportionately by women, yet they have these doors that you have to practically dislocate a shoulder to open. Ridiculous! So, yes, I appreciate when a guy opens and holds it for me. This is about POLITENESS... CIVIL BEHAVIOR... COURTESY. As such, I always give a big smile and say "thank you"... because I know he didn't have to do that. Likewise, despite my wimpy arms, I am a door-opener myself. I will scoot around people to open doors (yes, even heavy ones) if I sense they could use the help (anyone with a stroller, wheelchair, walker, baby carrier, toddler(s), big packages, or anyone very elderly or with an unsteady gait... although I always try to be subtle if the person has a disability, so I don't offend them). I also pause and keep a door ajar for anyone (male or female, in any condition) IF they're only a few steps behind me. Unlike opening a heavy door, merely holding a door ajar takes virtually no strength... so really, what's with people today that they allow a door to close right in someone's face? Incredibly rude! Another pet peeve of mine! I do find though that some men seem a bit flustered when I merely hold the door open for that extra few seconds. They usually scramble and dash ahead to open the next door (if there's a second set)… kind of cute... like I inadvertently disrupted their code of conduct. But, again, once the heavy door has been pushed open, merely holding it ajar for someone right behind you is a simple courtesy that takes minimal effort and (don't gag!)... it makes the world a nicer place.

    I agree with Pete (Griz) - I open doors for women and if one get offended, too bad! Chivalry is not dead, and I am not here to oppeas liberals! Carry on...............

    I disagree. Often, a man needs to keep his emotions in check because he needs to be able to solve whatever problem is happening. Holding your feelings in is not toxic. Being able to control your emotions and continue to function is an important part of being a man. A man also needs to be able to keep his feelings in check to be the rock that makes his family feel safe. I don't mean that men never get to cry but I do believe that a man can't be boohooing all the time and still be fulfilling the role society and the family needs him to fill. If all that built up emotion is a problem, the good news is that God only makes you live about 80 years so you only have to man up for a relatively short time. All the women I know like a man who behaves like a man. I don't spend time with anyone who doesn't....because I'm a man.

    Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, Members of the Senate, and of the House of Representatives: Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 -- a date which will live in infamy -- the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. And while this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or of armed attack. It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace. The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu. Yesterday, the Japanese government also launched an attack against Malaya. Last night, Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong. Last night, Japanese forces attacked Guam. Last night, Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands. Last night, the Japanese attacked Wake Island. And this morning, the Japanese attacked Midway Island. Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday and today speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation. As Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense. But always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory. I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost, but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us. Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger. With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph -- so help us God. I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7th, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese empire.

    Been thinking of my grandpa today, he was on the USS Helena. He was badly burned and was medically discharged from the navy. After he healed enough he joined the merchant marines and finished out the war with them. Unfortunately he died when I was young and never spoke of his time on the Helena or about the war. I did inherit a sweet eagle N walther PP .22 from him though and shot it today in his honor.

    The market goes up and the market goes down. If you are investing for the long-term don't watch it daily and relax. In the long run don't bet against America - the market as a whole will go up over time. If you are doing short-term trading, well yes it has been a wild ride.

    Not mentioned so I thought I would. Not an often discussed topic in today's day and age. A victory for the enemy? Sure but it showed how quick America learns. 5 months after Pearl Harbor we fought them to a draw at the Battle of the Coral Sea. 6 months after Pearl Harbor we kicked their asses and stopped Japanese expansion. 3 years later we fought them to the shores of Japan. Ethnic slurs are always appropriate when directed against the enemy. We should never be caught unprepared again.

    In no world would I want a .22 for self defense. I’d rather throw hockey pucks. The 9mm or .45 with suitable ammo (hornady CD, etc) is much better.

    I'm no psychologist, but my own opinion on why it is that these two groups of people who both swore the same oath, would go to two different extremes when it comes to cherishing our rights, is that one group acknowledged theyd be willing to put their lives on the lines to defend it, while the other group just looks at it as a game. So yes, it does piss me off that we take the same oath.

    Toxic masculinity does not exist. It is a manufactured social engineering tool, a huge stinking heap of faulty rationalizations, cobbled together by libtarded feminists with penis envy (which is a real thing). Holding a door is not abusive, calling a female miss or ma'am is not abusive. Feminists are trying to conflate the vestigial remains of chivalry with abuse. How on God's green earth is standing when a woman comes to, or leaves a table abusive? If ever there was actually such a thing as toxic masculinity, and the feministas wanted a legitimate target, they should go after rap music. But they don't and will not because rap music, as truly misogynistic as it is, belongs to a culture represented by liberal democrats. Hold a door, oppress a woman, sing about gang raping a woman, free speech. That is the logic of the institutions that created the imaginary concept of toxic masculinity. So, all this hooey about toxic masculinity is bullshit. The concept was designed to attack the polite traditions of white men and do away with traditional values altogether.

    Don’t think national reciprocity is going anywhere.. Either House bill H.R. 38, which passed the house and is stalled somewhere in the senate or Senate bill S446, which I believe hasn’t made it out of the Judiciary Committee. Either the Republicans don’t want the heat from the Democrat liberals, as in protests and confrontations in restaurants, etc, or they don’t have the votes, as in not all Republicans on board behind the scenes, because they’re in swing states and don’t want to risk re-election. McConnell doesn’t bring bills to a vote, unless he has the votes..

    @Greenday - I'm no expert, but as Voyager9 pointed out, a .22 is thoroughly inadequate for self-defense... apparently, even a thick leather jacket can interfere with it's penetration. And if someone's jacked up on something and feeling no pain, it may just tick them off more. Perhaps you and your wife should sit down together at the computer and do some research on self-defense ammo. I assure you (because I've done it myself) the overwhelming majority of articles, videos, etc. that you pull up will ALL be saying the same thing: .22 ammo is NOT good for self-defense (unless you happen to have a horde of angry ninja chipmunks attacking the house)! I mean, obviously, the thing is to AVOID those situations - good outdoor lighting, good locks, good security practices... but god forbid someone has made it past all of that and is in your house, and your very lives are at stake, you will rue the day you kept the .22 in the bedroom instead of a bigger caliber gun. Again, I'm NO expert, but I think people far smarter than I will now weigh in and say the same thing!

    This is the crux of the situation. There is no objective standard for defining “permanent”. I once used pop rivets to fix the underbody panels on a vehicle of mine after a retread came off on the highway. It was/is a “permanent” fix. So what is the standard? In a related note, is there a proper definition of “pin”?? A pin can mean many things. A roll pin with epoxy over the hole could theoretically be pulled out or drilled out. But it seems many mags sold in state are done that way. Again, lack of objective standard...

    France seems to be going through step 8 of the Saul Alinsky plan: 1. Healthcare. 2. Poverty 3. Debt 4. Gun Control 5. Welfare 6. Education 7. Religion 8. Class Warfare Obamacare, increasing numbers on food stamps by over 60%, doubling the national debt in 8 years, all you people holding on to "your guns and Bibles", standardized education, and working to divide classes of people were just a few things Obama did.

    The sympathy for vets getting caught up in this isn't because they are more important, but due to the unfortunate irony that they at one point swore to uphold the constitution and defend it against all enemies foreign and domestic. Only to come home and be stripped of the rights they fought to protect. Most veterans are on our side but youre more than welcome to generalise all of us as a single entity that wants you dead. That is your right to say. I just think you're an asshole.

    IMO the vast majority of women - still *want* to be treated like ladies..... It is always yes Ma'am and yes you hold doors open - you open car doors - you take THEM on dates and you let them sit FACING the room - if they complain - it is a slight on them not you....... Be a man, act like a man, chivalry is NOT dead - unless your a soy boy and then your just kinda fucked.......... Also when the time comes and yes, they allow you too - kiss THEM - hold THEM - caress them.... again unless your a soy boy and well she might as well be hanging out with her girlfriend.........

    That happens with me sometimes Zeke. Of course being 111 years old that's understandable. I still open doors for women. Few get offended and if they do that's their problem. Younger women seem to enjoy it as they're not as used to it as older women.

    You can't. But on the other hand you can't drive out of the state at all without risking death in an auto accident. Seriously, we need some sense of proportion here. Unless you plan to fly a flag on the vehicle crying "I'm Transporting 10+ Round Mags Out Of NJ" and/or drive like a maniac the risk of being stopped, let alone discovered, is so close to zero as to be negligible. If that wasn't true there wouldn't be any gang-bangers running around with guns on foot or in cars.
