re: People Have A 'Fundamental Right' To Own Assault Weapons, Court Rules - Ace Midnight
[quote]Of course, they are a highly useful tool for gun owners and the general public.[/quote] I think there is a little bit of movement on the legislative front for suppressors. They're finite, not inherently dangerous, and don't really pose a threat to public safety. They're not associated ...

re: Educate me - "Planned Parenthoot videos are frauds" - Ace Midnight
[quote]The whole thing is a red herring. The argument shouldn't be about what is done with dismantled baby parts. If we are ok with, as a society, dismantling unborn children why not do whatever you want with the spare parts. The argument is and has always been is it ok to to disassembly a "fetus" i...

re: Educate me - "Planned Parenthoot videos are frauds" - Ace Midnight
Abortion is the liberal/progressive sacrament. I'm just more ruthless - from a political standpoint - than many on the right are willing/capable of being. I have no political objection to abortion on demand. Smoke 'em if you got 'em. If a woman cannot override the Gaia-given instincts of a m...

re: Mec-Gar magazines anyone? - Ace Midnight
So, you're not worried about the extension, you're worried about that actual gap between the bottom of the mag well and the extension plate? Got it. I think that's normal - but I'm not 100%. BTW, nice kicks. :lol:...

re: Mec-Gar magazines anyone? - Ace Midnight
[quote]I just bought one.[/quote] I'm 99% sure they made the factory mags for your P226, Broke. Are these the 18-round aftermarket P226 mags? I don't have one yet, but they don't fit flush as a general rule. I had some Mec-Gar for my Sp2022 (they made the factory Sig mags for that as well) a...

[quote]All of that being said, if the process was fixed and someone was still on the no fly list, would you support them being able to buy assault weapons (lol whatever the hell that is --- I am still not clear on it)?[/quote] There is no background check for "assault weapons" - there is a NICS b...

re: WTF: Economy expected to have added 150,000 jobs in January - Unemployment 4.9% - Ace Midnight
[quote]It was 150k, not 190k [/quote] And with our current population size, we really need a consistent, steady 250k to 300k, but we aren't going to get that. The economy is changing and we may be in a death spiral on the employment/labor participation. This is a problem because assumptions a...

[quote]I remember back in olden times (when I was in college) my econ prof said 5% was just about the ideal rate.[/quote] Well, they changed the formula to make the politicians look better. 5% now isn't the 5% of Reagan - we used to consider that full employment. That's would be a laughingstock...

[quote]They were all added to the no fly list today.[/quote] Put a reasonable method for contesting/getting off the list if one is on there wrongly, correct name/social info for folks with the same name as someone on the list, etc., and I'm all for the no fly list being an exclusionary criteria. ...

re: Watched Blackhawk Down again the other night - Ace Midnight
[quote]Also an AC-130 may have been overkill in that environment. CAS isn't all that common in urban environments during low profile missions. [/quote] It would have been better suited to facilitate the extraction than the little birds making gun runs all night long and into the next morning. Ev...

re: Watched Blackhawk Down again the other night - Ace Midnight
[quote]The question I have is why didn't they scramble an AC-130 after the first chopper went down?[/quote] Because Billy Boy and Les Aspin (rot in hell) wanted it to be "low profile" - so, no AC-130 and no U.S. armor in the operation. That's why AMERICAN soldiers had to wait for hours and hou...
