    Hes not. IMO.
  2. The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Was typing on my phone, which is a pain in the ass for me I was retyping it and accidentally left the word "along" in there and forgot to put a dash, it was meant to read like this: (common sense gun laws - just raising the age to purchase to 21 and stricter penalties for gun owners that don't secure properly) To point out those two specifically since they were mentioned in my examples above.

    My dad has a nice workshop set-up at his house, all kinds of equipment for woodworking. I might see if he can get an exotic block of wood and make a few sets for me in his shop. I'm by no means inherited the carpenter gene from him like he did from his father, but they should be fairly easy to make (for him).
  4. The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    You're missing the point I'm trying to make. I never said that it would stop criminals from from breaking the law or 100% stop gun related violence/crimes. I clearly stated that if someone wants to break the law, they will break the law. But that doesn't mean there shouldn't be stricter laws in place or more regulations, etc. The solution and mind-set of "stricter laws aren't going to stop criminals from breaking laws and killing people" is the wrong approach to take, imo. These mass shootings are not just being committed by career criminals, or gang members, etc. They are also being committed by people with mental health issues, etc. with a common trend of these tragedies being committed by teens/young adults with easy access to firearms they should not have. There are kids who are outcasts and bullied/picked on, who have severe mental issues and once they turn 18, nothing really in place to prevent them from heading down to the local gun shop and within 15 mins or less, walking out with a semi-automatic assault rifle, multiple clips and ammo. Sure, stricter laws/regulations/etc. is not going to 100% stop all gun related deaths/mass shootings/etc. But depending on how strict the regulations/laws are, it might prevent a lot of those tragic events from happening. Raise the age to purchase all firearms to 21 and require a purchase permit for all firearms (not just handguns), then maybe that 18 year old senior that was constantly getting bullied, made fun of online in every social media platform available, laughed at at school, shunned by their fellow classmates and had no friends wouldn't have an easy of a path to purchasing a semi-automatic assault rifle, 4 or 5 30/40 round clips and taking multiple peoples lives. Maybe, because they don't have easy access and can't purchase firearms at that age, they graduate high school, go to college, get a job, whatever, and end up making friends, etc. between age 18-21. Maybe then, because it's been 3 or 4 years since going through hell, they got help they needed or just quit hating and wanting to hurt/kill people that were bullying them. Maybe during that time after finding/making friends they realized that they weren't a failure/etc. and their life did have meaning and purpose. Making stricter punishments for gun owners that do not properly secure their firearms, where their kids can gain access to their guns and use them in mass shootings, etc. Maybe knowing you could be going to prison for a really long time should your child or someone else having easy access (guns not locked up, proof that you didn't do everything to properly secure them) to the guns and using them in a crime or murder, would make them start properly securing them. And then maybe because a troubled youth can't get his dads semi-auto and can't buy a gun until they are 21 (if the age were raised), maybe that prevents another tragedy from happening. It's never going to be 100% prevented, but damn it, I refuse to believe that doing something (common sense gun laws - just raising the age to purchase to 21 and stricter penalties for gun owners that don't secure properly) will not reduce these horrific tragedies from happening. And at the end of the day, isn't saving as many lives as you can worth it?

    Looking to get some custom grips. I prefer to not get any with that thumb groove cut into it like the ones on the G10 grips. It will be for a 1911 full size and I'd like for them to be good quality. I'm open to wood, metal, etc. It would be for one with this color steel: The thumb groove annoys me as I have big hands and it doesn't fit right for my thumb. Any suggestions? Edit: Oh and as cool as 10,000 year old wooly mammoth ivory grips look, I'm not looking to drop that much $$$ on grips I'd say in the range of $150 or less.
  6. The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Just because bad people have guns or access to guns, doesn't mean that we shouldn't have stricter gun laws at the state level for all states, or the laws at a state level. If anything, this is exactly the reason we need stricter laws and at minimum the laws being the same in all states and not varying by state or federal laws in place. Because right now, the entire process is ****ed up. If I lived in NJ and wanted a high capacity magazine, I could drive to another state with no restrictions, walk into any gun shop and purchase one that fits my specific model gun and pay hardly anything for it. Just looking now, you can get 20 round magazines for a Glock 9mm for $30 or less. There are way too many work arounds when it's only regulated at the state level. And yes, I'm a gun owner and own multiple firearms (both rifles and handguns). Some things are just common sense, or should be at a minimum.

    It does not bother me at all when single parents and their kids celebrate both mothers day and fathers day. Being a parent, of just one child, even with both the mother and father present/together and a great support system in place is challenging enough. I can only imagine how difficult being a single parent (mother or father) is, especially for someone on an average or below average income. When my daughter was little (around age 2-4), my wife got promoted at work and at the time, could not do any work from home. She was working about 80-90 hours/wk a lot of weeks. Basically, it was just me and Tazette from 6pm Friday until 7/8pm Sundays, because my wife would have to go back in the office Friday night, would usually work all night and either sleep for a couple of hours at her office or get home around 1am and sleep and get back up around 4-5am and head back to the office Saturday. Repeat again Sat/Sun, and she would come home for Sunday dinners so she could spend some time with us. I was just a "single parent" over the weekends and it was very hard at times. Especially when they are at an age where you are still having to change pull-ups, feed them, etc. and basically do everything for them. Not to mention if you don't have family living near you (ours are an hour and a half away) to give you help/babysit/etc. there is no breaks. Even simple things like driving down the road to the pub to unwind and have a beer or two. So, you work all week, M-F, then it's full parent mode Fri-Sun. And that is nothing compared to what single parents have to go through, cause for them it's M-Sun, work and full-parent mode. Now one thing I find interesting is, I only ever hear about or read about (friends/fam on Facebook) single moms getting appreciated for both Mothers and Fathers day. I have yet to see any single fathers celebrate or be celebrated for Mothers Day.

    Shouldn’t have had that 4th Cosmopolitan.....lightweight
  9. I finished it up right after midnight. Was still pretty funny and really good. Though at times some of the scenes felt off/different. Could be due to the stuff going on with Danny Masterson.

    So for my birthday yesterday, wife got me this: It has a "living label" which is an app you download on your phone and when you run the app and point it at the bottle it makes the walkers come to life on the phone screen. Yes, pretty gimmicky and what not, but was more of a fun gift. She said they were sampling it at one of the stores she was at and that it tasted similar to one of the two/three wines I actually like.
