A Rainy Range Day!

My B-I-L's is coming to town to go shooting with me at the range today!
I'm looking forward to burning up some old, dated ammo because I don't like storing it.
This range day will be rifles and pistols.
He's bringing a Glock and a Swedish 6.5 Mauser, I'm taking a 1911 and surplus Romanian .22 training rifle, then lunch at the casino next door.

Good wet fun---I can't wait!

This could be bad news for citizens who want to stock ammunition.

The Army really wants to spread invasive plant species? Maybe they'll be forced to come up with USDA zone specific shells.
Smells like a boondoggle.

My friend is looking for a relatively inexpensive NATO 7.62mm Main Battle Rifle.
Hopefully where value and quality try to meet.Not ruling out second hand ownership.
Any advise would be much appreciated!

That was a really annoying article. I'd have preferred being Rick rolled to reading anything written in that tone of voice.

It was like reading some SSPX'er arguing about how Lefebvre wasn't really excommunicated.

I'm not even saying I disagree with the article. I think it's about right, in general, but the tone just makes me want to hurt people.

Your hate for conservative Christians is your god.

Article is a direct attack on Christians and you support that. Its very strange that it is not labeled "Alabama has a gun problem" or "Man kills teen due to strange gun laws". No, it says a "Christian gun toting NRA conservative who secretly worships at the alter of guns purposefully set up a bad gun deal to kill a teen because he knew that's how it was going to be done legally"
Was anyone involved in the situation a Christian? YOU DONT KNOW
Did this incident happen because it was in the bible belt? YOU DONT KNOW
Was anyone involved in the incident completely infatuated with guns to the point of worship? YOU DONT KNOW
This was horrible journalism. Those three things listed in the article were assumed and not proven. That my Bob friend is FAKE NEWS. I hate it when it is done on the right or the left. You cant even say that he is just writing opinion. Look at the title "MAKE NO MISTAKE: THIS IS FACT" yet he provides no facts.
This could have been two racist liberals. We wont know in this article because they just assumed the opposite due to Social Justice. Social Justice teaches us that everyone in the social group of the bible belt fits this standard. We are allowed to judge on social group with a broad brush. If it happens in the Bible Belt then the fact is white, Christian, conservative, backwoods red-necked anti-science bigots.

First, it is an opinion piece--not "news". Second, it is a criticism of how American Christians equate Americanism with Christianity. Third, oh no! Someone may disagree with you! What to do? I know...TRUMP ATTACK! You say I may be an idolater..YOU'RE THE IDOLATER! LOL!!

I love it.

We have talked about this before so you know I don't play team politics. Screw Trump or praise Trump on the basis of what he does not on the basis of what team I'm on. The fact is this article sparked nothing in me about Trump, nothing in me about the 2nd Amendment. This struck straight at Christianity. I urge everyone to reread the article. How did they link this to Christianity at all? It is anti-Christian and as you said, you love it.

If you love it because you think it gets at Trumpers then I have this question for you. Is the enemy of my enemy my friend? If you are getting in bed with anti-Christians because they are anti-Trumpers you may want to rethink your morals.

No, I said that you are using a Trump tactic of "Im not X.. YOU'RE X!" instead of dealing with the issue at hand.

Oh, and if you think I am anti-Christian... well.. I just don't know how I can live with that. <sniff!>

Exactly! It criticizes Christians of tying Americanism to Christianity. A problem that I believe should be addressed. But in what way does the story he is writing about relate to this problem at all? Because the people involved were Christians? Because they worship at the alter of guns? This is a sloppy attack on Christianity because there is zero basis that Christianity has anything to do with the situation at hand.

Look at it from this perspective.

I love it.
We have talked about this before so you know I don't play team politics. Screw Trump or praise Trump on the basis of what he does not on the basis of what team I'm on. The fact is this article sparked nothing in me about Trump, nothing in me about the 2nd Amendment. This struck straight at Christianity. I urge everyone to reread the article. How did they link this to Christianity at all? It is anti-Christian and as you said, you love it.

If you love it because you think it gets at Trumpers then I have this question for you. Is the enemy of my enemy my friend? If you are getting in bed with anti-Christians because they are anti-Trumpers you may want to rethink your morals.
This article is not about Trumpers. It does criticize Christians with tying Americanism to Christianity.

No, I said that you are using a Trump tactic of "Im not X.. YOU'RE X!" instead of dealing with the issue at hand.

Oh, and if you think I am anti-Christian... well.. I just don't know how I can live with that. <sniff!>
Exactly! It criticizes Christians of tying Americanism to Christianity. A problem that I believe should be addressed. But in what way does the story he is writing about relate to this problem at all? Because the people involved were Christians? Because they worship at the alter of guns? This is a sloppy attack on Christianity because there is zero basis that Christianity has anything to do with the situation at hand.

Look at it from this perspective.

It's a fair criticism. And Christianity as a religion is fair game to criticize. Guns and religion are tied together in the minds of many and Lord knows it seems that many Americans think the second amendment is in the Bible somewhere. The fact that you see it at as attack on Christianity would seem that the criticism was fairly levied.
