Personally, I like to hear about who sucks and why, because guns aren't cheap and it isn't hard to buy another brand.

In my latest shitter gun magazine, they did a review of the SCCY 3 or whatever. Gun magazine reviews are the most fawning, bend over backwards to say nice things bullshit ever.

It was pretty unbelievably scathing, and the gun seemed to have every type of malfunction under the sun. If a gun magazine gives a bad review, look elsewhere.

While I accept that it’s nice to have a left leaning gun forum in a hard right leaning gun world, we should still be conscious that not all conservatives are wrong and evil. They have a place here too.

Yes this is absolutely a problem within the United States, and it is partially due to the lack of unskilled labor that is willing to do that type of work, and partially due to our culture creating a society where that work is "beneath" the average worker. This is why I'm all for a guest worker program, and I'm also all for a system of bussing America's able bodied but directionless youth to fields to work for the summer so they can build an understanding of the value of hard work, waking up on a schedule, and being rewarded for your (forced ) labor.

Retail and restaurant work can be pretty back breaking. Restaurant especially so. After turning septic, I was back doing twelve hour doubles in a kitchen two weeks later. I had a person get bit by a brown recluse, hospitalized, and then back at work that night vomiting every hour. The American worker is treated like garbage, and I don't blame some portion of the population for rejecting this bum deal.

The American hatred of the worker is the problem, not the workers themselves. People would go work in a field if they got paid reasonably and given benefits. America expects indentured servants to work for it, not workers with actual rights. Less than ten vacation days a year? What other developed country has that? 8500 dollar deductible "insurance" that used to not cover pre-existing conditions? Come on. This stuff will be taught in the history books in one hundred years as New Indentured Servitude.

Edit : gently caress, I forgot what thread this is - We can get back to the topic at hand.

I've always ran the scenario in my head of what I'd do after the horrible event of having to use my gun. If I was out of danger, I'd clear the gun, lock the slide or leave the cylinder out, put the gun a yard or two away from me, and sit on my knees with my hands up until the police arrived. If I had the time, I'd start filming.

Thinking like this is why I went and got drug tested at a hospital after I nearly got shot in Nashville. It was night six of the Stanley Cup playoffs with Nashville in it, and the cops thought I was a crazy drunk because it was in a nice part of town.

Your being a POC makes you depressingly way more likely to be a victim of violence by the police. But, the police are not going to be able to help you in a horrible, life threatening situation. I'm white as hell, but I'd say carry anyways. In twelve years of carry I've never been openly made, and if you're careful about it, it shouldn't happen. Pocket carry is also drat near impossible to get caught doing, and the guns are vastly superior to what they were when I started carrying.

Of the three times in my entire life that I’d have wished I had a gun (all three involving aggressive dogs) only once I would have been of legal age to own one much less carry. Thankfully never was injured.

Outside of that the only situations I can imagine it being worth the risk involve SHTF situations so dire laws are moot.

I’d rather just focus on not being in that situation to begin with.

My tried and true method for dealing with offensive bullshit is typically to be nothing but friendly with the person, and then when the “gently caress socialism and Killary” poo poo comes out just politely tell them I’m a gun toting proud American socialist, or something like that.

Tends to actually start an honest conversation rather than continuing borderline xenophobic and racist poo poo.

I have mixed feelings with some Rogan guests. I love MMA and stand up comedy, so of course I listen to it. He has people on from both sides of the spectrum, and seems really good at having honest conversation that doesn't get nasty. When that Proud Boy fucker was on his show, Rogan went at him pretty openly. Nugent also came off like an unhinged rear end in a top hat.

But, here is where I think Rogan doesn't do a great job. He has people on without doing any loving research on them. That Ngo guy was on there, and Rogan was just agreeing with everything he said, but also seemed to have zero idea about his background in anything. Dude just came off like some poor, pitiful innocent dude, then two minutes of internet research painted a very different picture.

If I'm being honest, I don't mind most of the Rogan guests. He talks to both sides of the political fence. I just wish he would do more research before he is agreeing with every guest's talking points.

To me, giving a platform to people would be letting them monologue for twenty minutes about their bullshit. I just don't see the huge damage, MOST of the time, with conversation. I'd like to think people can do their own critical thinking, but it wouldn't be the first time I've had too high of an opinion of the average ability of people to discern bullshit.

Actually, give Henry Rollins a podcast and get those assholes on there. He wouldn't punch them (although I wouldn't mind seeing that with some of them) but he would rip them a new one verbally, and I can't imagine how scary having Henry Rollins angry at you would be. Dude is one of the most intense people I have ever seen talk.

I worked at a shop part time for awhile, starting before the 2016 election. We were told upfront in training, we can deny a sale for any reason. However, I expect the worst in people, and expected to have to speak out against it being used to weed out "those" people, but I only ever saw it used on obvious straw buys, and angry white dudes.
I did have a customer who came in covered in jailhouse AB- style ink. I don't know whether he was Aryan Brotherhood, but that style ink. I refused to help him, and expected my manager to give me poo poo. I told him I was denying that guy help, and told him why.
He ended up not buying poo poo or saying anything.

I was at a big box store, and a shady tatted up white dude came in with a blonde drug looking woman in tow. He wanted the cheapest .40 they would sell him. When he started the paperwork, the employee asked him if he had any pending legal charges. The dude took fifteen minutes to eventually answer, "Two pending domestics, but they ain't gonna stick." He then insisted on filling out the paperwork anyway and waiting a hour and a half to get denied. Not sure why it took that long.

I felt so God damned uncomfortable, but the guy helping me said that happens at least once a day.

This reminds me of one of the greatest things I've ever read in the forums from a million years ago.

People were planning to protest Westboro Baptist's very own Fred Phelps when he died. There was a lot of discussion about how protesting them would be exactly what they want to justify their vile existence.

Then some goon said, "I think we should all dress up like robots, bring a boombox to blast the Star Wars cantina theme, and dance nearby without acknowledging anyone."

This has all been informative. With my English grandmother in England, she always said, "If it looks like a Nazi, dresses like a Nazi, or sounds like a Nazi - It's a Nazi." (I am using that term literally, she lived through the Blitz.)

It's nice knowing she wasn't totally correct. When I was little, I literally thought Skinhead - White Supremacist.

I do think it's weird to dress in code though. Reminds me of the Blood/Crips poo poo from public high school.

One of the things to remember is that skinhead wasn't a fascist or neo-fascist aesthetic until it got coopted by them. Look at historical photos of Nazis, everything form the HJ kids in the 40s to the way early street fighters, and you're not going to see that look.

If you REALLY want the Nazi aesthetic it's lovely haircuts, bad mustaches, and button down shirts.
