So, I stopped by 1 of my small, private, local gun stores today (that i have bought 3 guns from), just to say hi & shoot the shit. During my 45 min-1 hr there, 3 people stopped by that made a point to say that they will never shop at Dicks Sporting Goods again-for anything !!! I thought that was just awesome !!! :rockon:


:winchmob: Approves of this !!! :lol:
Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:

I have everything built at the moment. I am going to grab a few more and put them in the stash once the foolishness settles down. It is funny how they grow into full rifles with time.

Funny that you mention this, I just saw something about REI suspending contract with a big company that owns CamelBak and other brands because they also own Savage Arms and wouldn't make a " public statement “that outlines a clear plan of action” regarding common-sense gun control measures. "

Well, to be fair, they're exercising their 1A rights, and they can run their business however they want...

That said, the people cheering Dick's on for exercising that right are the same fucktards that told christian bakers they had to sell to LGBT customers, or muslims. They think it only works in their favor.

Personally, I haven't shopped at Dick's for years, because their prices suck, and selection blows... This was just a publicity stunt, and it's just another nail in their coffin.

When seconds count, the police are only minutes away...

Last July I caught two burglars/druggies inside my cabin. I had a .44 Mag S&W with me. I called the sheriff re crime in progress, told them I had a gun and two perps, and I needed a deputy RIGHT NOW. Took five calls and twenty minutes for the deputies to roll up. Bunch of retards running the government, and they are spilling over into the business world.

NICS and the regulations we have now are the "common sense" gun regulation compromises the liberals asked for. The government failed at every step leading up to the Parkland school shooting. Now, the left, is demanding more government regulations to make up for the failures of the government. This isn't about safety or even kids, this is simply partisan politics. Look how fast the same old tripe got trotted out by the same old characters. In the state of Oregon, more people are murdered annually with hands and feet than with rifles, yet look at how oldly important this is for the left. They are desperate for a political win and want this to be their wedge issue.

Re: Dicks Sporting Goods.................

Post by RustyPW » Sat Mar 03, 2018 10:13 pm

This was pulled off another forum. The guy who wrote it is a doctor I think at a hospital in Ohio. Got some nice stat's in it. :lockedandloaded:

There are 30,000 gun related deaths per year by firearms, and this number is not disputed. U.S. population 324,059,091 as of Wednesday, June 22, 2016. Do the math: 0.000000925% of the population dies from gun related actions each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant! What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death:

• 65% of those deaths are by suicide which would never be prevented by gun laws
• 15% are by law enforcement in the line of duty and justified
• 17% are through criminal activity, gang and drug related or mentally ill persons – gun violence
• 3% are accidental discharge deaths

So technically, "gun violence" is not 30,000 annually, but drops to 5,100. Still too many? Well, first, how are those deaths spanned across the nation?
• 480 homicides (9.4%) were in Chicago
• 344 homicides (6.7%) were in Baltimore
• 333 homicides (6.5%) were in Detroit
• 119 homicides (2.3%) were in Washington D.C. (a 54% increase over prior years)

So basically, 25% of all gun crime happens in just 4 cities. All 4 of those cities have strict gun laws, so it is not the lack of law that is the root cause.

This basically leaves 3,825 for the entire rest of the nation, or about 75 deaths per state. That is an average because some States have much higher rates than others. For example, California had 1,169 and Alabama had 1.

Now, who has the strictest gun laws by far? California, of course, but understand, so it is not guns causing this. It is a crime rate spawned by the number of criminal persons residing in those cities and states. So if all cities and states are not created equally, then there must be something other than the tool causing the gun deaths.

Are 5,100 deaths per year horrific? How about in comparison to other deaths? All death is sad and especially so when it is in the commission of a crime but that is the nature of crime. Robbery, death, rape, assault all is done by criminals and thinking that criminals will obey laws is ludicrous. That's why they are criminals.

But what about other deaths each year?
• 40,000+ die from a drug overdose–THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT!
• 36,000 people die per year from the flu, far exceeding the criminal gun deaths
• 34,000 people die per year in traffic fatalities(exceeding gun deaths even if you include suicide)

Now it gets good:
• 200,000+ people die each year (and growing) from preventable medical errors. You are safer in Chicago than when you are in a hospital!

• 710,000 people die per year from heart disease. It’s time to stop the double cheeseburgers! So what is the point? If Obama and the anti-gun movement focused their attention on heart disease, even a 10% decrease in cardiac deaths would save twice the number of lives annually of all gun-related deaths (including suicide, law enforcement, etc.). A 10% reduction in medical errors would be 66% of the total gun deaths or 4 times the number of criminal homicides......Simple, easily preventable 10% reductions!

So you have to ask yourself, in the grand scheme of things, why the focus on guns? It's pretty simple.:
Taking away guns gives control to governments.

The founders of this nation knew that regardless of the form of government, those in power may become corrupt and seek to rule as the British did by trying to disarm the populace of the colonies. It is not difficult to understand that a disarmed populace is a controlled populace.

Thus, the second amendment was proudly and boldly included in the U.S. Constitution. It must be preserved at all costs.

So the next time someone tries to tell you that gun control is about saving lives, look at these facts and remember these words from Noah Webster: "Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the whole body of the people are armed and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force at the command of Congress can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power."

Remember, when it comes to "gun control," the important word is “control," not “gun."

Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:

So, that works out to about 1 gun for every senator, 2 senators at the most !!! That we are paying for, with our tax dollars. Is there any idiot on this planet, that would have ANY respect, for someone who says they are in favor of new laws that restrict the ability of law abiding people to purchase certain firearms........(wait for it)..........WHILE THEY ARE BEING GUARDED BY ARMED SECURITY ??????

Criminals---meaning-----people who break the law and commit crime, which = new laws will not affect those that break the law....hence the name, criminals.
