I don't think we are getting the full story here, I have a concealed weapons permit but rarely carry a gun. There must be something wrong with the gun for a two year old to use it or irresponsible actions by the mother, the gun should have been on safety. My daughter is 10 onth old and will not go near a gun until she is old enough and responsible to use one.

Is it for target shooting? Otherwise what's the point?

Yes it is single shot, i intend to use it for hunting this musket will stop anything in its tracks, especially bears and mountain lions. With one shot comes a degree of skill  :)
Title: Re: Yanks and Guns contd...
Post by: Rowley Birkin QC on February 19, 2015, 12:32:15
So you bought it for the larger round? Fair enough, but I think I'd prefer something I could load faster.
Title: Re: Yanks and Guns contd...
Post by: Victoria on February 20, 2015, 00:58:32
For protection I would use something that loads faster too! However, this musket is specifically designed for hunting, of course I have a back up if I missed. I usually use my Henry Rifles for hunting, my shot gun for home defense along with a Glock G42 :)

Tori, straight question.  Do you think the gun laws are too lax in the US?
Title: Re: Yanks and Guns contd...
Post by: Victoria on February 22, 2015, 17:16:49
depends on each state as each has different laws. Maryland has tightened up on it's gun laws but with false I.d. one can buy what one wants. Transporting assault rifles is problematic  so I just keep mine locked up and don't use it.

The AFDI’s event was attended by Geert Wilders, the Dutch far-right populist politician who gave a keynote speech to the audience.

Wilders heads the Party for Freedom and has been accused of inciting racial hatred after pledging in 2014 to ensure there would be “fewer Moroccans” in the Netherlands.

The thing is Tori, America with its gun lobby, tea party right wing bullshit makes you look like idiots to the rest of the world

When we had the Port Arthur massacre in 96, serious gun ownership laws were brought into effect, now its extremely hard to get a gun here, since 96 there have been no more massacres

Post by: gavin on June 27, 2015, 13:52:58
It certainly is a different culture. I just can't imagine getting or giving a gun as a present. I do wonder though that maybe the proliferation of guns in America is so great and attitudes to them so different that it is impossible for them to ever turn back and take a more sensible approach. It is bizarre that they don't try to do something about it given the regularity of these attacks.
Title: Re: Yanks and Guns contd...
Post by: Victoria on June 27, 2015, 16:09:41
There are plenty of laws in place but each state has different gun laws; Maryland has some of the toughest gun laws. In addition there are far more responsible gun owners than not. So why should responsible gun owners suffer because of a few irresponsible people? The media make it out to be far worse than what it is. I agree that sick bastards last week should have been nowhere near a gun. His father has to take some of the blame.
Title: Re: Yanks and Guns contd...

Hey Reddish

me and a few mates are planning to do Route 66 in a mini bus next year - fancy it?

 :D

I find this an interesting concept, route 66 does not exist anymore other than small parts that are far out of way; it is all highways now, and it will be totally boring to drive. Further, more people go missing and never found on this route (collection of highways) than any other road in America. If you want to drive from Chicago to LA, go northwest from Chicago through Iowa, South Dakota, Montana or Wyoming (skip Idaho as there is nothing there) then come down the west coast through Washington, Oregon, and North California. This way you'll see most of  the natural beauty of North America, its breath taking views and National Parks. Yes, it will take longer but is it a far safer route. the old way you'll be crossing deserts and if not prepared it will kill you.

I suspect some sort of nasty shity trickery here

your trying to get us on the drone surveillance route, where the CIA & FBI & NTA & DEA agents not to mention the bent local sheriffs dept can see us, where our every move will be monitored, one foot wrong and we'll be invaded and fried by under cover agents posing as a renegade biker gang who will rape us and then kill our arses, our bodies (along with our vehicle) will never be discovered, buried deep in the under ground bunker within the  secret military no go area of the Mojave desert, are we done here?

...and so we give a wild animal a cute human name and the world is outraged at its death.
Anyone who eats meat, fish, cheese, drinks milk, wears leather boots etc., has no right to be outraged - it is hypocrisy at its worst to protest.

Cow
Sheep
Goat
Pig (ok Omnivore but mosty herbivore)

Gets a little messy when it comes to fish and birds...

This latest shooting was perpetuated by and English kid who supported the IRA, so this is what happens when an English kid has his hands on a gun. This thread should be called Yanks and English with guns.
There is no justification for what happened, just another sick-fuck with a gun, as I have said before people kill not guns. It still remains far to easy to obtain guns in certain states; there should be unilateral guns laws across all states, but each state has it own right to make laws.
Obama speaks out, and the 2nd Amendment is brought into play by the NRA. This gun issue has gone far beyond the second amendment and does need to be addressed. Most Americans use guns responsibly, a few do not and cry about their right to bare arms. This constitution has been warped and twisted over the years, the second Amendment came about to support a local Militia in defense of one's state; not go on a killing spree, this is not what the 2nd Amendment was designed to do. The Amendment is out-dated and needs to be changed, but I feel if changed, it will not stop the lunatics from repeating yesterday. As I said earlier, people kill not guns.

You can repeat that until you're blue in the face but as long as potential killers find it so easy to get hold of guns the death rate from gun crime is hardly likely to drop.

I could be wrong but Wikipedia suggests there have only been about 20 fatal bear attacks by black and brown bears since 2010. In this day and age there could probably be an alternative  method of scaring away bears. Perhaps don't leave your pickernic  basket in the back garden

I'm going to assume you're not out in your yard sunbathing with your rifle... Which means you're either in your yard without your pistolas, or in your house. So my advice would be not to shoot it but to contact the rangers who will come and tranq it and then take it back into the wilds...

Australians have dangerous animals in their back yards... Doesn't mean at first sight of a croc they shoot it!

Post by: Victoria on October 10, 2015, 01:54:01
Swiss, how did you know I like marmalade  :) However, to go into my back yard can be dangerous, it is over 450 acres of woodland, creeks, and rocky outcrops with small waterfall and caves. ( I now live in the mountains of Western Maryland). however, what you call a back yard with grass and plants and such is only an acre. So it would make sense to carry a rifle at times when I go outside my nice garden.
 Bears sometimes come up to the house and rummage through the trash, if they find some food they will keep coming back, that is when I call the park ranger who then does tranquilize the animal and let it go safely in another area that can support the bears habitat.  Also, earlier last week I heard strange noises/screams and wood knocking coming from the woods and also last weekend. I went to investigate with my boyfriend (Hubby gone) and we discovered some geeky BigFoot hunters.......lol. Yes, we were armed and legally I could have shot them for trespass, but I found it an interesting concept of hunting a none existant hairy ape so I gave them permission to hunt bigfoot on my land; but call me first. My point here is these guys could have been dangerous villains, serial killers or god knows what! so you see I do need my Henry Rifle when I go out in my back yard. In addition, earlier in the year the police found a Moonshine still on my land and questioned me bout it..........lol. I could have been arrested for conspiracy to make Moonshine, now these are dangerous people. The upshot is that on my land I have drunken tax evaders, Bigfoot, and sad bastards that have too much time on their hands, which are more dangerous than the bears.........lol.  :)
Title: Re: Yanks and Guns contd...
Post by: Swiss on October 10, 2015, 09:25:52
Right... so you could have shot the big foot hunters for non-violent action... does not compute simply because they were on your land... call the police! Let them wrongfully shoot someone? and the moonshiners "dangerous people"? Why are they dangerous? Perhaps because they are armed? So if you take the guns away from people, they become less dangerous and then no one but the forces need guns... Even tazers and pepper spray is illegal in this country!
Do you deserve to die because you're walking on someone's land or grain/potato crime?

In this country it's still legal to own a shotgun.
However, did you know it is considered murder if you shoot them in the back or whilst they are running away, they have to be threatening you!
Sawn off shot guns are illegal.
Hand guns are legal, but you have to be registered at a club and keep it there.

Just reminded me of something: some silly woman on tv about the latest scoop shootings, protesting about obama: "If the Kids all had guns, they would have been able to shoot him!"

And some guy in a political job or something said "what the kids should have done was grouped together and rushed him, yer the gunner might have killed one or two of them, but the rest would have got him!"

Possibly if you are trained... but clearly he's not thought about the psychology behind being in a very scarey situation where someone is indiscriminately killing people and your first thought is how do I get to safety: how do I survive...

Post by: Victoria on October 10, 2015, 12:24:23
Swiss, I am well aware of the Maryland gun laws, I usually joke about shooting trespassers. However, if those Bigfoot hunters were armed then they could have been a threat, therefore I could legally shoot them but common sense usually prevails, I don't want to shoot anyone or everyone that comes on my land. however, the Moonshiners are dangerous, they protect their little empire with vigor as there is a lot of money to be made; tax free. Usually when caught on other peoples land they do a deal with the land owner for shine and money, that is why the police questioned me; thought I was in on the deal. however, if the land owner says 'go' they usually do.  The problem here is other Moonshiners who encroach on there territory, look for 'Stills' and destroy them, there has been some bad encounters in the past with Moonshiners in West Virginia and the South Carolina.
Title: Re: Yanks and Guns contd...
Post by: Swiss on October 10, 2015, 21:34:53
So Moonshiners only attack Moonshiners: No gun needed.

Those Bigfoot hunters are only a danger to themselves!

Trouble with common sense is 2 fold:
1) Those that do have common sense often lose it in stressful situations
2) Not everyone has it!
Allowing the above 2 types of people to have guns is dangerous.

Trespassers: No need for guns, call the police if they're a danger. You're not military, or law enforcement and you are not properly trained how to handle that situation.

Situation:
You, home alone; probably had 1 or 2 mojito's: you've been watching the news, there's a rapist that's been attacking women in the community. ... you here a loud crash bang!?!?! You're straight up, you reach for the rifle to make you feel secure as you investigate.
You notice a shadowy figure in your back garden, walking with a gun in his hand towards you.
Your mind flashes back to the newscast: The Alabama Dusk Raper is in your yard! Shaking with fear, loathing and rum, there's no way you're gonna let him violate you!Boooooom!!! Right in the kisser! Your wanton backdoor smasher has flown 15 feet backwards and slowly the twitching stops as your breathing returns to normal!

Suddenly a loud Meow comes from behind you, you spin around to see Archibald the neighbours cat! It's obviously snuck in through a bedroom window! "I bet you've knocked over my new Vase haven't you!?" you think to yourself! As you move to pick up the cat, you think, Darlene will be looking for you... You're suddenly filled with dread as you spin back around... You grab your overpowered 10,000 candle lamp and shine it in the direction of the dead body... at the lifeless 15 year old girl!
Congratulations, you've just killed an innocent girl looking for a cat. She was holding a rifle too, her dad gave it to her to protect her from the Alabama Dusk rapist too: S'ok though, she was trespassing and you were protecting your land!

Now if you both weren't allowed guns you could have made sure the house was locked, phoned the police and waited for them or the girl to knock on your door!

Darlene should not be in my house with a gun unannounced; therefore a legal killing with reasonable force. However, it is not that easy to call the police when one is two mlie up in the mountains and surrounded by trees. I spent a small fortune on installing satellite communication systems so I could have phone, Tv , and internet. It will take about an hour for the police to arrive, I live in a remote area.My mail box is two mile down the mountain so that should give you an idea how remote I am. As for the Bigfoot hunters, yes I agree they are a danger to themselves  :)

Nimrod, I bought the land three years ago because of the scenic veiw. I also had a house built made from redwood and cedar. It was intended to be a summer retreat but because of personal events last year I decided to make this house my permanent home. Dispite it's shortfalls I like the quietness and I belive it is safer environment for Raven to grow up in. There are other people nearby and in the valley but overall it is a better community to live in at this moment in time.

Yet again, trial by press, the press show only one perspective, we all wasn't there so only the people there can put any credence and validity to what happened (Tamir Rice). Also, the police where not told it was a suspected toy gun, if so, they may have responded differently. Yet again you and the press speak with hindsight and now can only speculate what the boy was trying to do, either way, it is an unfortunate tragedy. As for you being an agent spreading thrush, you deserve to be shot! :-)

I think the biggest problem that the USA has is that it is a violent country. Forget guns if they banned and magically got rid of every weapon in America then stabbings would go through the roof. Guns are the tool but ultimately the yanks need to look at why do they like killing each other so much....and why they like to keep going into other countries and killing them.

Gone up to 570 as at 23:50 GMT.

So new calculation would mean, if trends continue, 11,590

Also, based on incidents, an estimated 45,709 incidents involving guns.

2481 teenagers (12-17) likely to be killed or injured.

468 under 12's likely to be killed or injured.

All as a direct result of twats with guns.

According to some reports - the child found the loaded .45-caliber handgun (a serious weapon - none of your .38 / 9mm stuff - the woman is lucky to be alive!) lying loose on "the truck floor" - so that's an unsecured firearm...

And even better - there was a child seat in the back of the truck, but the police reported the child wasn't restrained in it! (Which is presumably how the kid managed to crawl around and locate the weapon on the floor!) 

So this idiot thinks she has a right to have a gun "to protect her child" - but keeping her child safe in the event of a traffic accident by correctly securing the kid in a safety seat is totally beyond her!!!!  The baffling logic of these people. I hope the cops throw the book at her.

serious question Tori, could you ever envisage living in another (like say Australia or UK) country without a gun ?

I mean is it just because you live in the US that you feel you need a handgun, or would you want one wherever you live ?

Nimrod, your question suggest that i pack a gun all the time: that I don't do. Although i have a licence to carry a hidden gun, I do not, although I do have a gun hidden in my Range Rover at all times, to access this gun requires my thumb print. I carry this gun because of other idiots with guns who should not have them. Just last week a guy shot a young girl in the head over a road rage incident, he had an illegal gun.
I now have 1000 acres of land (bought another 550 acres cheap off Uncle Sam) , which is mostly woods, streams, and small waterfalls. however, the land comes with problems such as moonshiners, poachers, mineral miners and illegal loggers, in addition, there some rather dangerous animals such as bears and mountain lions, and cougars that will kill a human in a heart beat. So when I take the horses out I always carry a hand gun and a Winchester rifle because of the aforementioned factors. Further, due to my isolation I have more guns in my house, so to answer your question, it is where I live that I need a weapon, also, If I lived in the outback of Australia I would want some weapon due to the wild life that can kill a human.
To answer your second question, I do live in England, without thinking of a need to carry a gun, I have property in Manchester where I stay for short periods of time during the football season. This gun culture comes down to cultural differences and nothing more. For me, owning guns is a necessity of the environment rather than culture and nothing more.

Its been big news here in Oz, this aussie woman calls the cops one night in Minneapolis because she hears a woman possibly being assaulted in an alley behind her house.
A patrol car comes and the cop in the passenger side shoots the woman dead as she is standing in the driveway.
The cop who shot is not saying anything (his right to remain silent) and now the Chief of police has resigned, due no doubt to the pressure bearing down on her.

Theres been a protest march as this lady was popular and now people are scared to call the cops now for fear of being shot, apparently cops over there have shot circa 500 people up to now this year.
Apparently both cops had their body armour cameras switched off

Its been big news here in Oz, this aussie woman calls the cops one night in Minneapolis because she hears a woman possibly being assaulted in an alley behind her house.
A patrol car comes and the cop in the passenger side shoots the woman dead as she is standing in the driveway.
The cop who shot is not saying anything (his right to remain silent) and now the Chief of police has resigned, due no doubt to the pressure bearing down on her.

Theres been a protest march as this lady was popular and now people are scared to call the cops now for fear of being shot, apparently cops over there have shot circa 500 people up to now this year.
Apparently both cops had their body armour cameras switched off

You couldnt fucking make this up..

Weapon discharging officer must have been off sick when they covered identification of popularity in the dark.

Not much in USA doesn't come with the potential for mortal wounding, does it?

Texas church shooting.

27 dead.

All these executive powers, surely a president can just turn the gun law by himself...

Not that trump is the right president and anyone that does is commuting political suicide...

Another for the list, 6 dead in California, looks like some marriage or family issue rather than a random shooting spree. Ironic comment from the local sheriff about these shootings becoming "the new normal across the country...".
