This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

But it says well regulated! And militia! Never mind what the militia was in late 18th century, they clearly mean the national guard.

There were private militias all over the United States until late in the 19th century.  The history of the militias is actually pretty interesting.

I like how some of them were basically men's clubs or even immigrant organizations.  Men love belonging to groups and having hierarchies.  And also getting the fuck away from their wives and kids!

So the Sleepy Joe handlers have unveiled their six drafted EOs for the puppet to sign. They're all bad.

Reference: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2021/04/07/fact-sheet-biden-harris-administration-announces-initial-actions-to-address-the-gun-violence-public-health-epidemic/

Quote
(1)  The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.” We are experiencing a growing problem: criminals are buying kits containing nearly all of the components and directions for finishing a firearm within as little as 30 minutes and using these firearms to commit crimes. When these firearms turn up at crime scenes, they often cannot be traced by law enforcement due to the lack of a serial number. The Justice Department will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of these firearms.
We are? That's new. Usually criminals opt for guns 'under the table', not building them with complex 3D printing and CNC systems. What are the statistics on this? Or is it just 'trust us, these are EVUL GUNZ'?

Quote
(2) The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act. The alleged shooter in the Boulder tragedy last month appears to have used a pistol with an arm brace, which can make a firearm more stable and accurate while still being concealable.
I see they got some mileage out of the Syrian who decided to go bag some Jews even though he was on the FBI's radar, even if he wasn't a Trump supporter. Garbage, but what else is new? I love how the shooter 'appears' to have used a pistol with an arm brace. Dude! Don't you KNOW already? The event's over! You should be able to tell one way or another!

Quote
(3) The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states. Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others. The President urges Congress to pass an appropriate national “red flag” law, as well as legislation incentivizing states to pass “red flag” laws of their own. In the interim, the Justice Department’s published model legislation will make it easier for states that want to adopt red flag laws to do so.
Blatant attempt to violate due process and shit on people. I look forward to 'red flagging' being used the same way shitheels use swatting as a tactic. With any luck this will get challenged and struck down, but I'm not betting any money just yet.

Quote
(4) The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions. Community violence interventions are proven strategies for reducing gun violence in urban communities through tools other than incarceration. Because cities across the country are experiencing a historic spike in homicides, the Biden-Harris Administration is taking a number of steps to prioritize investment in community violence interventions.

The American Jobs Plan proposes a $5 billion investment over eight years to support community violence intervention programs. A key part of community violence intervention strategies is to help connect individuals to job training and job opportunities.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is organizing a webinar and toolkit to educate states on how they can use Medicaid to reimburse certain community violence intervention programs, like Hospital-Based Violence Interventions.
Five federal agencies are making changes to 26 different programs to direct vital support to community violence intervention programs as quickly as possible. These changes mean we can start increasing investments in community violence interventions as we wait on Congress to appropriate additional funds. Read more about these agency actions here.
Graft and more graft. Gotta pay off some political supporters.

Quote
(5) The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking. In 2000, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) issued a report summarizing information regarding its investigations into firearms trafficking, which is one way firearms are diverted into the illegal market where they can easily end up in the hands of dangerous individuals. Since the report’s publication, states, local, and federal policymakers have relied on its data to better thwart the common channels of firearms trafficking. But there is good reason to believe that firearms trafficking channels have changed since 2000, for example due to the emergence of online sales and proliferation of “ghost guns.” The Justice Department will issue a new, comprehensive report on firearms trafficking and annual updates necessary to give policymakers the information they need to help address firearms trafficking today.
Wonder if the report will cover Fast and Furious? More boilerplate to prop up their damaged ideas that 'guns are soooo easy to get'.

Quote
(6) The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. ATF is the key agency enforcing our gun laws, and it needs a confirmed director in order to do the job to the best of its ability. But ATF has not had a confirmed director since 2015. Chipman served at ATF for 25 years and now works to advance commonsense gun safety laws.  (White House Link)
This is the one that rattles me. Chipman was the case agent for Waco.

Yeah, I totally want to put the ATF in the hands of the vicious fuckwit who helped whitewash that clusterfuck. What a GREAT idea.

But hey, 'nO oNe WaNtS tO tAkE yOuR gUnS', right?

Greetings!

Thank you, Ghostmaker, for posting a good summary of the legal bullshit violations of our Constitution that the goddamn Biden administration is doing!

Our 2nd Amendment rights are in peril from the cock-sucking Marxists and all the goddamned yellow cowards in this country. So many drooling, feminized, sobbing pussies. They are disgusting. Just more proof that there are many people born for the yoke. They yearn to serve a strong master. These whining bitches love being slaves to the elite. They sleep better at night, knowing their place is to bow their heads and desperately whisper, "Yes, Master!"

The great atrocity is these scum are willing to sell out the rest of the country that doesn't want to live like fucking slaves.

Hopefully, enough resistance can be rounded up to turn these governmental policies and initiatives back. It's a never-ending struggle!

Semper Fidelis,

Shark, just remember that the best part about inalienable rights is that any government that tries to limit them or take them away is, by definition, a tyrannical one, and thus should be replaced. These gun-grabbing communists are not going to like what's coming their way if they continue down this path.

Yeah, you are quite right, my friend! I've told my friends, it ultimately doesn't matter what the government does. I'm not a criminal today--but tomorrow, by the stroke of a pen, I'm suddenly considered a criminal? How is this justice prevailing in the land?

I'm keeping all my guns. I'm keeping all my ammunition, and gear. I'm not signing anything; I'm not going to register a goddamned thing, beyond what I have already by long-standing law abided by; I'm not paying a nickel for extra fees or fines, for a fucking thing. They want line in the fucking sand, that's it. They can all burn in hell, and yeah, I don't care if I get blazed for it. So be it. The country has to stand up against the tyranny.

Fortunately, where I live, it isn't something I have to reasonably expect, because everyone around me are patriots and pro-guns. I have several neighbors that are law enforcement, and they would never enforce tyranny. Woe to the patriots that live in cock-sucking, Liberal Marxist areas! YOU get to be forced on your knees and fucked in the ass as the Liberals gleefully turn you into a cowering, unarmed slave.

All the while you know, the nice folks down in the ghetto, well, they are certainly armed. THEY don't give a fuck about what the law says, now do they?

Stand against the fucking tyranny with every bit of strength we have! God, these cock-sucking Marxists are such filthy, diseased rats! Always scheming and whispering in their plots to make everyone slaves!

Greetings!

What kind of scopes do you like to use?

Scopes of course, can get very expensive. I think my Eagle Talon scope I got for $600. I can't remember. It's a good little scope though for the AR-15.

I like the clear reticle, it makes centering on the target very comfortable and smooth.

I'm still using iron sights because I haven't bought a scope yet. Anything that would fit on an older rifle?

So a good scope for a Kar98k, suggestions?
