  1. United States Gun Control Megathread

    Different strokes for different folks, but my dad as a former highschool teacher(both primary circuit, and Juvenile Detention) supports the option to arm teachers. One experience he cited was when he used to teach at one of those minute southern California native american tribal areas(Too small for a casino like a nearby tribe, but big enough to have their own mountain area) back in the early 90's. Living up on their mountain valley, it was rural enough and displaced from urban sprawl that many families owned ranches and some students rode on horseback to school. The key point that got my dad's attention however was that it's a 40 minute drive, one-way, to get down the hill to the nearest hospital or the valley's police department. So if there was ever a problem, it had to be settled pretty frickin quick. Luckily two of the teachers on staff were retired police, and open carried, and as far as my dad knew everyone felt just that much safer for it. I suppose it's a different matter of priorities when you're in the depths of urban sprawl of a major city, but having it as an option instead of a mandate I think could still be useful.
  2. Is this the proper thread to ask for opinions of Creedmoor vs Grendel?
  3. They've expanded their services outside of the US, which led to them making a surprise revenue uptick this past quarter
  4. United States Gun Control Megathread

    Since it's being floated on my Facebook news feed, an alleged plot for a school shooting in the Los Angeles area was thwarted when school security overhead a potential threat and reported through the proper channels with school authorities and the local Sheriff's office that led to the student being arrested Basically the "connected the dots" model that should have happened in Florida Of course the kid could have been talking full of shit, but they're going to pin him for possessing an unregistered AR-15 anyway(the other belonged to his Army vet brother)
  5. United States Gun Control Megathread

    Regarding the "Why won't you do something?!" calls from foreign peers, this is what "gun control" proposals look like when they percolate in Congress(Granted this was for the Vegas shooter, but still)
  6. Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    Sounds like the Chair Force isn't the only department to fuck up in it's filing processes in the past 5 months
  7. Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    From what I hear of my old hometown in inland SoCal, that's basically already happened at the high school I would have gone to had I not moved across the country. Mainly due to encroachment of gangs flushed out of the Los Angeles sewer into what used to be a quiet senior citizen city 20 years ago More to the topic at hand, it appears this kid is setup for some kind of insanity plea
  8. Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    The previously mentioned MAGA hat instagram account is probably a different Nicolas Cruz. Florida Voting Records for an individual who identifies at Nicolas De Jesus Cruz(use the CTRL + F function) of 19 years age is a registered Democrat before and after the Trump election
  9. Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    Seen a separate claim that a separate instagram account with the guy's name had the user wearing a MAGA hat in the avatar. So it's unclear if they're even looking at the right accounts
  10. Calling it right now, if it goes off completely then Trump wins points for supporting the military. If the Pentagon doesn't pull through then Trump can wheel around to congress and tell them how ragged our military apparatus has become that it can't support a single parade
  11. It's because in Leftist Media land, since Trump's government is a Russian puppet, it's both sensitive state secrets AND Russian lies
  12. The Star Wars General Discussion Thread

    The dude who posted the play by play rant of TLJ I shared on the forum earlier finished an in depth teardown of the film in a 3 part series. Altogether it's the longest review I've seen on the film.
  13. Apparently the FBI pulled a Hillary
  14. WoT v WT effort-thread

    Haven't touched it in 7 months, waiting until the big engine update this March
  15. Even some of Breitbart's commenters are saying Bannon lost the plot
  16. The Star Wars General Discussion Thread

    Bonus articles: The Last Jedi's plot elements might have hit so low as to bear similiarity to Fanfiction tier writing On the other hand, holy fuck 1 million words written over the course of (probably a bit over) a year. That guy must have been spitballing plot ideas left and right nonstop
  17. The Star Wars General Discussion Thread

    A play-by-play rant of TLJ
  18. The Star Wars General Discussion Thread

    Does the forum have a spoiler tag?
  19. The Star Wars General Discussion Thread

    The more time I spend thinking about that character the higher my blood pressure goes
  20. Movie tanks and terrible Vismods

    "Panther or P26/40? You be the judge"
  21. Fuck does this post editor suck at removing quotes sometimes. Was going to mention @Scolopax that a Mega Man movie is also in pre-production In other news, is it time to bring up Star Wars yet, or does The Mouse' money make it "Good" enough to stay out of here?
  22. Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    He was as old as MkUltra was officially a thing, though it was reduced in operational scope the project had 20 years to run it's course
  23. This is also why we have Teflon Don'. He's got plenty of reasons for people to call him an ass, but then they pile all this crap onto the accusations and when they're called out for their bull it all gets wiped off the table
