thinking about getting a gun for home defense. i have no experience with guns. want to get something soon because you know obama is going to take advantage of recent events to to launch an all out assault on the 2nd amendment. ("never let a serious crisis go to waste", said his former chief of staff).
of course would like to take a proper safety and handling course. i live in a first floor 1 BR apt, no kids and few guests, in a dense, suburban area (at the beach, zero lot lines). what does the suque recommend?
NYCTerp is now OCTerp
Check your lease first. If it doesn't prohibit guns, get a shotgun. Even a 20 gauge is fine.
If I go the baseball bat route should I get like a 34" 32oz bat? wood or aluminum? If I go with wood do I want to swing with the engravings on the outside or no?
Been crazy busy with work but made some time to go to the gun show Friday and we got there early expecting a line and all but we were still way back in the line. Easily over 1,000 lined up when it opened and probably 5 or 6 Code Pink protestors screaming out front.
Prices were insane but everything was being bought left and right
Woo hoo! Just joined the club today. Thanks, Academy!
I'm not the biggest NRA fan...although I did join at gun show as they gave you hat and covered the admission and saved you a lot of time in line, but if anyone wants to join they have a deal with Bass Pro Shops where you can join for 1 year for $25 and you get a $25 gift card to Bass Pro Shops
Wow, there are some leases that don't allow guns? Never heard of that nor do I understand how it's legal. Didn't DirecTV recently win a court ruling that overturned HOA and apartment restrictions on satellite dishes as an infringement of 1st A?
OTARD: Over The Air Reception Devices; for increased competition-nothing to do with Constitution. As for apartment leases, I bet most have a no firearm clause.
I haven't rented in quite a few years, but I have never heard of such a thing. If I rent again, and that is in the lease I will simply violate it or go elsewhere, especially since I'm much more likely to need a gun living in an apartment, especially one that is a gun free zone.

They certainly may have such clauses (I don't know), but I would bet it's more violated than the 'no skanks' clause.
Last time I rented, I had more skanks than roaches.
Here are the REAL gun nuts:
"...Several other agencies of the federal government also began buying large quantities of bullets last year. The Social Security Administration, for instance, not normally considered on the frontlines of anything but dealing with seniors, explained that its purchase of millions of rounds was for special agents' required quarterly weapons qualifications. They must be pretty poor shots.
But DHS has been silent about its need for numerous orders of bullets in the multiple millions. Indeed, Examiner writer Ryan Keller points out Janet Napolitano's agency illegally redacted information from some ammunition solicitation forms following media inquiries.
According to one estimate, just since last spring DHS has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm. That's sufficient firepower to shoot every American about five times. Including illegal immigrants.
To provide some perspective, experts estimate that at the peak of the Iraq war American troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month. At that rate, DHS is armed now for a 24-year Iraq war..."
Homeland Security stockpiles enough bullets to shoot every American five times
have thought about getting a Taurus Judge.. it can shoot shotgun shells and bullets.. any opinions on that gun?
two cases of voter fraud in the last decade and we MUST impose new ID rules....35,000 gun deaths a year and we have to fight tooth and nail to get universal background checks
it aint gun nuts....its right wing tea party nuts
I think the rule set in Md is the way to go. Not worried about which side of the aisle is nuts.
7 day waiting rule probably cuts down on a lot of domestic or pay-back violence (home boy style).
Background check is right at every level. Don't need the untrustworthy (however that is measured) getting extreme lethal means in their possession.
If you are someone who wants to hunt or just shoot, then waiting 7 days shouldn't alter those desires significantly. If you should not own a gun, based on criminal or mental issues, then I'm fine w/that as well. Makes it safer for those who obey the rules.
As a law abiding gun owner, I support enhanced background checks, particularly including the requirement for private sales (gun shows). They need to enforce current laws and impose stiffer penalties for fraud.
Past that, I think the other proposed legislation is window dressing. No of it will do any good and it will just create additional laws that the government is to inept to manage and enforce. They can't handle the current laws as it is now.
Oh yeah, your 35k number is high and more than half are suicides.

Gun deaths are the cancer of the hood.

There was at least 35,000 cases of voter fraud in the last election alone. Because the Dem political machine turns a blind eye and gives a nod,wink,wink.
For such a time as this.
ok, so what's the issue?.. I don't care about being downvoted but would like to hear why
Gun rights, pro life activists are enemies of the people. If you are also pro traditional marriage you are a wacked out terrorist.
I'm buying a handgun at the Chantilly Expo tomorrow. Would like advice on the best way for it to be available when/if I need it and safe from my kids.
Gun rights no, the other two yes.
Make sure you get ammo for it or able to get ammo for it. There is a extreme shortage in ammo.
Just noticed that this is 3minute rule's aviator.
