I don't know about the details of how it was found and it's kinda difficult to ask my uncle now. Since it was a deer gun found in the woods and nothing bad came back with the serial number I'm going to think happy thoughts.

Yeah, I kinda figured that, but couldn't help asking.  You never get a yes if you don't ask.  (Same thing with girls, too.)

Motion seconded on pictures.

Motion seconded on Zardoz pic and James Bond movies, except I wonder what gun he's holding?

Apart from all the furniture and color metaphors, I was curious about the S/N in terms of registering it in Hawaii, so that part of it has been answered.

But I was also curious about any other information on where it was found and whether it had a round or an empty in the chamber, or whatever.

Kind of hard to just "lose" something as big as a shotgun, so "what's up wid dat?"  Not impossible if it fell into deep snow or slid down a canyon or something like that, but that sure is curious.

Maybe it's just going to be a case of "if this old gun could talk," but the whole thing  kind of piqued my curiosity.

To me "furniture" is/are the bits and pieces like butt plates, barrel bands, patch boxes, etc. that are not wood but are not part of the actual firearm.

So I don't know what you were sanding when you say, "... but in my attempt to remove the mold stains from the furniture I sanded too much so the lines no longer match up."

Did you mean "remove the corrosion" from the metal furniture?

I was also wondering if you could find a serial number. and how the bore looked.

Great video, great fun !

Son2 was practicing flint knapping by working on a glass bottle bottom.  I never asked him how it all worked out, but he did mention he was going to get a "rocklock."  (Love that term.)

One of my constant wisecracks whenever another restriction of arms and components comes up is that maybe we'd all better learn how to knap flint.

The guy's a self-righteous jerk... not uncommon in progressive-thinking individuals.

However, this bit in the cited article stunned me:

Hawaii overwhelmingly supported Hillary Clinton during the Nov. 8 election, and historically has supported Democrats in local and national races. In fact, just six Republicans are in the 51-member House, and the 25-member Senate is GOP-free.

Sounds like a tyranny of the majority, to me.

Hopefully President-Elect Trump's successes in his term will draw some people toward conservative thinking and away from their short-sighted "gimme, gimme" attitudes.

"Of course the goal here, and around the country is to deny EVERYONE gun rights by making everyone a convicted Felon. Do a search on the number of convicted Felons in the US, and the number of convictions per year before you laugh,"

You mean somebody else noticed that besides me and Ayn Rand?

Another firearms "choke point" technique is the practice of declaring vast areas of land as "monuments" and "parks" and "primitive areas"  and the like.

"Sorry, I figured that was covered [in] basic public school education."

Are you kidding?  The way history is taught in today's schools? 

America bad, nasty, evil. You little schoolchildren should feel guilty about America's power and carry that message with you always.  Bad America !

Most of what Bill Whittle said in the above video conforms to the accredited historical texts... some of  which were written by non-Americans.  He gets a wee bit ranty towards the end, but that's OK with me, since I am aware of the gross atrocities committed by the Japanese.

(Originally posted on the wrong thread and moved to here.  Dumb Terry.)

Text of her original post:

I have spent 12 years, intentionally, not being political on this page because I embrace the diversity of opinions.
Except when the opinion differs from yours.
Let me be clear, this is not a political issue. This is a human rights issue.

Yet it is clearly. unequivocally, boldly and baldly stated as a fundamental civil right in the highest law of the land.  For clear and even present-day political reasons.

If you own this gun, or you condone the ownership of this gun for private use, you may no longer enter either of my restaurants, because the only thing I want to teach my children is love
.Without realizing that this sets your children up as victims for those people in the world who do not share your rather pollyanic view of people and who will willingly and enthusiastically prey on your beloved children when they enter the real world.

When we have seen our schools, our clubs, our movie theaters, our public places
of safety and celebration, be allowed to be targeted....
Yet "gun-free zones" such as you describe are the actual ones being targeted by my aforementioned predatory people.

... remember that Grace is all of those things. You don't privately own this weapon to protect your family, or to hunt.
I do not understand your accusation.  Developing various skills, be they target shooting with firearms or in archery, throwing a baseball over the plate, fine-tuning your poker playing, or enhancing your skill in cooking a fine meal are all part and parcel of being a human being.  To not advance in any of these pursuits and others is to resemble an unthinking insect.

I understand that I may be offending members of my community, but this is a human issue, not a gun owners issue, or a second amendment issue, it is about humans. I cannot, in good conscience, accept anyone inside of my restaurants who believes that this is ok. Love is love, and only light can drive out the darkness.
Except the "darkness" to which you refer is universal in the form of the evil predators to which I referred.  And in insisting that we ban the tools to resist this evil, you are naught but abetting it. 

I would be ashamed, as a parent and a human, if I did not use this platform to speak up.
Thus you have, and encountered reasoned resistance to your stand.
How many people have to bury their loved ones before we say together, "no more."
Somehow, I am reminded of Prime Minister Chamberlain's claims of  "Peace in our time" in 1938, a year prior to September of 1939.  You remember what happened then, don't you?

Her remarks are so typical of the wooly-headed attitudes of those who have never encountered genuine, hard-core evil and violence in the real world.  As I say, sometimes it takes a good mugging or a good tyranny to wake some peope up.

From what I understand* the concept was brought up by one of Yamamoto's aides in a planning session and Yamamoto sort of took it and ran with it.  Just from memory, and I don't feel like digging it up by chapter and page.


* Not sure where I got this from.  Perhaps Jablonski's "Airwar" series, or "Total War" by Calvoressi and Wint.  In either case, it was presented by known and accredited WWII historians.

While he was supposedly defending his country with a rifle, did it ever occur to him that there is also a right to individual defense?

Terry's Twelve Tenets:

1.  Just about every creature on earth has some method of defending itself, from the porcupine to the family dog... and even including many plants and insects.  Even kittens carry "concealed weapons."

2.  We may take this as a strong indication that personal defense, even of humans, is an inherent part of nature and is a right not to be denied.... whether you call this a "natural right" or a "G-d-given right."

3.  This right --besides being an individual one --is also extendable to groups, whether this be the family, the tribe, the State or Province, or the nation as a whole.  It is, using the same word as in our Declaration of Independence, "inalienable."  It can't be taken away, although it may be infringed upon by persons or parties with superior force.  The "superior force" is usually that wielded by governments.

4.  When the United States was formed, the founders were well aware that the usual progression of all governments tended toward tyranny --a fact acknowledged by any reader of history, be it from the founders' point in history or from our present day's.  They therefore took steps in writing the Constitution of this country to restrict the powers of government to encroach upon the rights of citizens.  But it clearly left all "unenumerated" (not spelled-out) rights to the individual States, or to the people. 

5.  However, when that Constitution was about to be ratified by the 13 States/Colonies, some of them felt that the business of "unenumerated rights" was insufficiently strong and wanted certain fundamental ones spelled out clearly.

6.  They therefore got together and wrote out a specific Bill Of Rights (hereafter "BOR") for exactly this reason: "in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its [the Federal government's] powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added [to the Constitution]" in the form of Ten Amendments to that Constitution as it was orginally submitted to the States/Colonies for ratification.  This statement of purpose appears in the Preamble to the BOR.

7.  The Second Amendment of the BOR, guaranteeing* the rights of the people to keep and bear arms, is the shortest restrictive clause in the BOR, if not in the entire constitution.  Pre-adoption discussion and argument regarding limitations and "reasonable restrictions" to this fundamental right were settled in the discussions and arguments preceding the BOR's final adoption. 

8.  Therefore, without "channeling" the Founders, it is obvious that the ultimate decision was to not include any limitations or "reasonable" restrictions, but rather to state it as boldly and baldly, explicitly and emphatically, as possible.

9.  The constitution is widely recognized as the highest law of the land, at least among those most sensitive to their rights and the protection it affords to those rights --and those protections have been recognized to be applicable to the several states as well.

10.  Therefore, stating it as firmly as possible, any laws, wherever and whenever enacted, which infringe in any way on that clearly stated personal right, are immanently and inherently unconstitutional on their face

11.  Therefore, any "case law" or legislative law, again stating it as firmly as possible, which endorses those infringements as legitimate and constitutional, is immanently and inherently wrong.

12.  Thus, anything relating to the "legal system's" own abilities to declare  its own authority to assume jurisdiction which is outside the plain language of the second amendment is reflexive and tautological, and cannot be accepted.  In other words, any case law or legislative law, regardless of the subject of the original case involved, which is used to support the legal system's own  authority in second amendment matters, is inappropriate.  No other interpretation is reasonable.

And thus it has been since 10 December in the Year of Our Lord 1791.

* Note the "guaranteeing," not "granting."  The right is already there, as it is with almost all creatures.

How about that, Mr. Marine?

Looking at their website, the total tone of it is that they really aren't catering to we redneck realists.

I think the expression is "artsy-fartsy."

I appreciate good art, music, and architecture as well as the next redneck, but too often I find that "appreciation" of the "fine arts" goes hand in hand with political viewpoints with which I disagree.

The correlation isn't perfect, but strong enough for me.

OK, but be that as it may, what gets to me is when these people insist on foisting their self-righteous attitudes on me.

So, fine art, crystal goblets, fine dining experience, magnificent stained glass windows notwithstanding, if they're going to make a public statement reflecting negatively on a fundamental civil right, I think they're no better than the racists who used to have signs banning negroes (blacks, nowadays) from their establishments.

So, in clear realistic redneck verbiage, "Fuck 'em, the assholes."

Yeah, I wonder how they're going to get around the "reliable source" to prove lying when the reliable source herself is an admitted liar.  What a condom.  Oops, I mean conundrum.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave
When first we practice to deceive !

This is one of the most quoted excerpts from Scottish poetry, and appears in Sir Walter Scott's epic poem "Marmion."  I hope to see it quoted some more in reference to Ms. Katie Couric's baldfaced lies.

But I'm in a charitable mood today, so I'm sure that within her own conscience, she lied for what she considered a "good cause."  After all, the end justifies the means, right?

Riiiiight.  :grrr:

Late to the party.  Colorado only.  I carry everywhere legally able to, basically every place that doesn't have a metal detector and the Post Office.  Which latter pisses me off.  They're safer with me in there than not.
Wow, I never got into the Wiki edit or talk sections before.  Sounds like they're debating the debate-debating.  You're right, it does resemble lawyer-speak.

Looks like[citation needed] the hyperleftists[citation needed] are circling the wagons[citation needed] to defend[citation needed] an indefensible position[citation needed].

Terry[citation needed], 230RN[citation needed]
Oh, and Wiki has "locked" her Wikipedia entry:

I wonder what they mean by "uncontroversial OR supported by consensus."

Consensus of the hyperleftist anti-2a community, or our consensus?

I can't wait 'til June 3rd.

I find it unbelieveable that any producer or director would allow 8 or 9 seconds of pure "dead air" in a documentary without having an axe to grind.  That bullshit "excuse" about allowing the audience to ponder the question reminds me of a cat scratching to cover poop in the litter box.
