Electronics Tech, Linux Geek, Homebrewer, and aspiring opinionated old fart
Introduction
Electronics Tech, Linux Geek, Beer Brewer Extraordinaire.

Another thing that you should be aware of, the single most logical fallacy that will engender a sometimes epic reaction is the phrase `begs the question`. There are usually a lot of unproven stances or sheer simple assumptions that have to be true to have `begging the question` have any valid meaning at all. Simply put I will feel the need to destroy not only your assumed position but the positions that you had deemed beyond reproach as well. _petitio petipii_ is one of those triggers to me that make really live up to the comment `stupid people annoy him`. Take it as fair warning one and all.

More and more I find that I must warn people that I am a social libertarian. Which means that I believe government has no reason or rights to interfere with anyones private live. 

1: be civil. You can disagree with me all day long, I enjoy a lively debate and will even admit when I am wrong. However, since this is not real time, you have all the time in the world to compose your responses. If you can not be civil I will infer that neither can you be rational nor logical. I'll give you a warning first, as everyone slips now and then, but if you persist, I have no problems choosing whom I will or wont associate with. I will block you.

2: The occasional animated gif is fine, 6 in a row is abusive spam. Like all spam, I will make the effort so that I don't see it anymore (read unfollow).

*3:* Fill out at least some profile information. If there is nothing there for me to determina anything about you odd are that I will assume that we have no common interest. If I see a Guy Fawkes mask, I'll assume that you have some form of brain damage and do not feel you should be held accountable for your own action.

[Stop with the tabloid politics]

As it is unlikely that I will vote for any of the front runners of either party given my own political leanings I would like to ask the political sensationalists to move on to substantive discussion rather than tabloid discussion. The issue of Cruz's eligibility was settled by SCOTUS in 1971.

apologies to non US folks, it's just been bugging me

Part two of a two part news team examination of the good guys with a gun theory. Completely debunking the more famous flawed examination.
Four licensed North Texas handgun carriers are being put to the test. How will they perform under fire, faced with an armed attacker?

This seemed to have been a far better more balanced and more realistic exercise that wasn't designed to fail from the start. I think it definitely demonstrates that everyone handles things differently but the bottom line is that you are better off with a gun than without one.
Even though in some scenarios the "good guy" didn't always win, I like to think that their attempt and sacrifice may have occupied the shooter enough that others may have been saved in the process by being given more time to escape.
It also stresses the importance of continually seeking to improve with range time and training.

One of these it's going to be Beowulf 50 cal, I think I have settled on a dual upper for 5.56 or 6.5 Grendel for another. The third ... Well they were on sale was the logic I used that my wife would accept. Not a clue for that one. Spare in case the 50 breaks something.

Well the cowboys beat the Eagles yet again, even if it was the race to the bottom and a draft pick.

It comes down to a simple fact. No gun = no chance; having a gun = having a chance. It is simple math and liberals are idiots and liars to say anything otherwise.

Well here is something ripe for a lawsuit, too bad I don't have standing. This is one I would take to court just to get a better grasp of the legal system. What say we find someone who DOES have standing and do a go find me for them.
A major United States city is now requiring a doctor's not in order to get a permit to purchase a firearm. According to local media reports, the Honolulu Police Department is now requiring a signed doctor's note before they will issue a permit that is required to purchase a firearm.

+Dirk Willden​ well put! As a retired US Army veteran and fire arm enthusiasts/owner this entire article simply enraged me. Not to a point of anything stupid or commiting some stupid crime, but on an intellectual level. In NY there are already enough rules and regulations to almost tank, I said almost, a persons wanting/obtaining a pistol permit. For a law maker to try and push more rules and regulations up the food chain is ridiculous. Disclosing or the disclosure of someones "mental health" is a complete bullshit and cowardly more. To ask a doctor to do that completely violates doctor/client privilege. Has anyone been completely honest with a doctor ever? Im going to go with "no". Based my my personal experience with doctors and with the VA most of the hired doctors have never served or are off playing golf. I have yet to meet a doctor that actually understands the patient. And to schedule a sit down with a shrink? Come on thats at least 4-10 visits. And too boot its holding a doctor responsible at the same time.

Seemed like just the time to order three new lowers, one will be strictly for Beowulf 50. One of the others likely a traditional 5.56. The third ... hey ya never know. I'll show progress on the books as they go. And yes I'm going with the tank break on the 50 cal, it puts an exclamation point on exactly which end would be preferable to be standing on.
