Some European countries require proficiency tests just to issue a hunting license and it's just not safely handling a firearm. When I took my hunter safety class in Alaska as an 11 year old (1974) I had to pass a proficiency test just to get my card. But again, I had some of the finest teachers since they were USAF Snipers.

Thumbs up Agreed!

" Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. . ."

But kindly note it says noting about shooting the bastards, just throwing them off. We have the vote which at the end of the day is far more powerful than any weapon. We need to learn more about how to really make our votes count and understand that voting for a President every four years makes you a contributor!

Okay, Terry. You may now delete my post and ban me from this forum for a prescribed period of time.
That ain't political, it's historical!

So for the print media:
  • You can have all the printing press you want but the government controls the ink supply.
  • A press may not eject paper automatically; it must be based on the operation of a hand trigg...er...controller. To operate a fully-automated press requires a special stamp from the Federal Government and incremental fees.
  • Presses can be concealed but in some states can be operated in the open.
  • The final newspaper can be no shorter than 18 inches. Magazines can print on 9-inch stock.
  • In some states you must wait three days before ordering and installing your press.

When they come for you guys I'll be holed up in the Creech Compound down south, where there's no infernal Internet, lawyers are buried 12 feet deep (why?), and we think the gubmint oughtta be able to take a joke.

That, and it's supposed to be 75 degrees in Twin City on Sunday. I've taken big brothers place as patriarch and, as such, his red recliner...
