All true..however what they dont tell you about bump stocks is that accuracy while using it totally sucks... Hardly matters when you'...

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

...ummm...no...AR-15's are semi-auto not full auto, in other words one pull of the trigger = one round fired thereby making it virtually impossible to fire 13 rds per second...you must be thinking of the M-16 which can be fired full auto and is actually a military weapon. An AR-15 is not a military...

Re: Famous American protestant teacher Billy Graham dies at age 99

He brought evangelical Christianity out of the circus tents in the backwaters of the South into the White House. Thanks for that, now we're reaping the fruits of that unholy alliance. And his son Franklin is a menace. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/franklin-graham-followed-his-father-billy-s-f...

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

How would you counter the average gun nuts arguments made against Chicago's failed gun laws, and in particular the honest guys are the only ones that will turn in the guns leaving only the criminals armed? According to my brother (responsible gun owner, NRA non-member), one of the problems in Chica...

Re: What did you learn from the movies?

I learned that hot guys in black leather jackets and fast motorcycles are my kryptonite.

Whereupon I entered the downward spiral. Took a long while to come back up.

Also, avoid attack rabbits.

Re: What is a Woman?

Indeed. I would highly recommend procuring some and trying out your lovers hormone profile. A caution though. Testosterone is somewhat addictive and perhaps the best cure for PMS. You may not wish to go back. Since starting testosterone (I'm FTM) 2 1/2 years ago, the only thing I can say I dislike ...

I am always in awe of how strong people's opinion are on the sexuality of people they will never have sex with. Particularly of people they don't even fancy.
