    It would be nice if all the elitists, big and small and even those who post on the internet, who think they should be able to tell everyone else what to do and what NOT to do ... would realize that they just aren't important enough to be in charge of other people's lives.

    What would be great is if everyone took the responsibilities of citizenship seriously including being a responsible gun owner, and standing up for every right, but specifically 1A, 2A, 4A, 10A and 14A. If you aren't outraged then you aren't paying attention, and probably exercising your most important right, voting.

    I am outraged at the behavior of the sheep of Boston demonstrated recently, g-damed surrender monkeys, but I suspect they are very representative of most of the inhabitants in the area of the country that was the to forge of freedom, when our forefathers rose up against the British rule that founded this country. The cowards of Boston pissed on the grave of every single American that has died protecting your rights, so you can hand them over without a whimper, cause your pansy ass is frightened.

    Ok then, you first. I will tally the scores and we will see if you pass your own test.

    I'm inclined to agree with you on most of the points listed in your post. With great individual liberty comes great responsibility. And that is exactly what is wrong with this country today. We live in a country where far too many of the voters are quite willing to give up their liberty as long as the government provides for their security and gives them enough of other people's money to provide for all of their needs. They not only want government to protect them from others but even from their own stupidity. We are losing our freedom because the government is always willing to provide for enough largesse in order to keep its slaves in line.

    The people of this country have been given a great gift that was earned by the tremendous sacrifices of previous generations. We still have a few young people making sacrifices go protect this country from the barbarians who are out to destroy western civilization. We have become a nation of sheep who don't deserve the liberty bought so dearly by our predecessors.

    I ran into a little "issue" at a gun store awhile back..... I had already filled out the fed form, and it was called in and approved.... THEN they wanted me to fill out a form of their own, which included many firearm safety questions and you HAD to fill it out and agree that you would adhere to all their "rules" from that form if you wanted to walk out the door with your purchase...

    It PIZZED me off to no end... I made it well known that they had just lost me as a customer forever... (I also demanded and recieved a refund) It is none of their darn business in my opinion... I was greatly insulted, it was the same to me as if walmart asked me if I knew how to eat individually wrapped cheese without choking to death on the wrapper and requiring me to fill out a form saying that before I am allowed to purchase it......

    Sounds to me like they were attempting a little CYA. Does Ohio by any chance have any legislation pending (or reported on) that proposes liability of gun-makers or gun-sellers if you go postal with a gun they made or sold? F$#@-em, good call on your part.

    Way to stand up to them! We're all going to have to stand up, even the gun dealers.

    Facebook yesterday--I know, who gives a fark.
    I criticized the way an [alleged] Israeli Security Forces person was handling her rifle in a photo. She was on a plane, the rifle was in her lap pointed at passengers across the aisle and she was on the phone paying no attention to the weapon. I expressed fault for having the muzzle pointed at passengers and for not paying attention to the weapon. I was lambasted, called a "safety nazi" and an anti-gunner, told I needed to shoot "real" guns before I criticized, and then banned from the group.

    Other than that, most of the comments were about how cute she was and etc. in that vein.

    I suppose I should know better than to have found this attitude disappointing. Thing is, all my training and all my experience is with people who take gun safety very seriously, without compromise or excuse seriously. That being what I am used to I found the attitude of the FB group members disconcerting.
