    I am unemployed so I get to see a lot more TV than I really should I was watching Hawaii Five-O episode called 'Diary of a Gun' where the whole show was dedicated to 'midnight specials'.

    Anyhow, it's amazing how normal, law abiding citizens are 'forced' to commit crimes just because they found a gun.

    1st use. A kid (teenager?) gets insulted and shoots a tourist. Kid runs away and drops the gun in a mailbox. Mailman picks up mail, sees gun so goes and finds his wife sleeping around and kills her and the man she's sleeping with. Mailman throws it out the window while driving down the street. Kid picks it up and takes it home. Shoots self in foot, while going to hospital, leaves gun on floor and front door opens. Janitor sees gun and picks it up. Janitor takes it and tries to sell it to a hold up guy. Hold up guy kills Janitor and takes gun.

    Hold up guy carjacks someone and hits him over the head with the gun. Hold up guy holds up a store (duh) and shoots 2 shots at the front of it and speeds away in the stolen car.

    I can't watch any more.

    I need a job!!

    I have not seen any one of these people filling out the proper paperwork

    Before anyone says none needed, I know!

    The problem is that the gun obviously was not properly registered :what: and further, back in the sixties and seventies, they did not have the gun laws in place we have today. Heck, with all these gun laws, those folks would never have picked that gun up in the first place. Yup.:celebrate

    'Cause we know that gun laws stop criminals dead in their tracks. Right? Right?

    Of course. Just look at Washington, D.C. and Chicago.

    Damn, I'm old enough to remember the original showings. Jack Lord was in real life an anti-gun nut from NYC.
    He apparently was a great shot too. He could hit perps while on the move with that little .38 snubnose from great distances.

    True.

    In another show earlier, they had sharpshooters shoot a small plane and make it explode. Of course, the six cops shooting at the plane didn't care about all the people and other planes in the background.

    Most people get just about all of their legal knowledge and other "facts" from TV shows and movies. Then every now and then you get a long thread right here on this board about what kind of gun was used in a certain movie and this stupid actor called a certain gun a pistol when it was a revolver because he is a big anti gun person and on and on.

    It is a freaking TV show or movie folks. They don't worry about facts and whether or not you have to cock the hammer on a 1911 before every shot. Take it for what it is, fantasy. And tell others that it is fantasy and Dirty Harry is not a real detective, a .44 Magnum will not blow your head off with one shot. As Mad Max says on the John Boy and Billy Show, "Shut up and quit trying to ruin my life".

    The fact that Hawaii 00000 stopped production in 1980 would have nothing to do with its untimeliness, of course. Neither is Hawaii a gun friendly state nor a state absent rampant racism.

    When the coast of California breaks off at the San Andreas Fault, then it will make best speed to join its depauperate Ohana in a "South Pacific Paradise" in the North Pacific.

    If only they would have had the bullet serialization and micro stamping, then, after the first crime was committed, the police would have known who had the gun, it's GPS location, the number of rounds left, the accuracy of the shooter, and could have contacted OnStar, so they could have taken the gun out of service before someone else got killed.

    I know it sounds far fetched, but, the anti's herald micro stamping/ serialization as the end all of gun crime, so it's gotta do something spectacular, because we all know that just plain ol' serial numbers and a micro stamp don't help find someone who has stolen a gun.

    GPS bullets! That would do the trick. Heck, I remember a bunch of anti's pushing for ammo cost so high no one could afford a single round. Imagine one .38 SPL cartridge costing $1000. I think it was Chris Rock that said if the government raised ammo prices to $1000 a bullet that that would end all gun violence. Right....

    Speaking of tv shows...my favorite that I dislike the most these days is CSI: Miami. They are always spouting off about the National Gun Registry Database and how they can track guns down in a minute to the person who bought the gun. Right.....and how many people know that in Florida it is a 5 MILLION DOLLAR fine per occurrence for any kind of "gun registration"? And just why did Florida pass such a law? Not to protect criminals that is for sure.
    “The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the People of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” -- Samuel Adams

    “Today, we need a nation of Minutemen. Citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.”

    —John F. Kennedy

    alot to give unsolicited comments on. so that's me; bye california, when the big ones hit you want me to hold your unloaded gun for you so it won't get salty?

    the sheep don't know no better because they have not been educated to currents until now. there was no gradual nothing. we went from anti- gun, to tolerated gun in a span of a few short crime ridden years.

    5 mil fine just changed my retirement plans about fla. figured there wa something amiss in paradise, enough to keep me out. anything with a 5 mil fine i won't go near.

    people gotta realize too that oc just displaces the crime, they go elsewhere, and it may be where we aren't, so they have an obligation to enjoy the same level of protection we do.

    I think he's saying that an attempt by a government agency to come up with a registration scheme, and actually register a gun will get that agency a $5,000,000 fine. It's meant to protect gun owners from local gun registrations

    Yhat law also has some bad side effects. One gun company, I think Taurus, can no longer put your gun into a database to keep track of it when you send it in for repair. If you call and want to know why it is taking 9 weeks for a repair instead of the 6 they promised they have to find it manually instead of just pulling it up on a computer screen to tell you it will be 3 more weeks. At least that is their story and they were sticking to it.

    I registered my 'lil .38 snub with Taurus, on-line. I entered my serial number and all...

    I would think Taurus is keeping that info... But who knows...

    I counted 7 shots coming out of that little gun. Was it a revolver and did they spend the money to buy bullets just to commit the crime?

    The sad thing is many people do get all their uniformed opinions from movies and tv. Why do you think the antis always refer to the old west?

    Spoons and forks should be outlawed at buffets because they make people fat.

    Don't give children pens or pencils in class rooms because they cause children to write on desks.

    Whatever happened to taking personal responsibility for actions taken?

    Ikowmost on this form do take personal responsibilty and that is why we carry.




    Don't confuse me with the facts, I have my emotions!

    I guess that's the difference between no crime and "stopping" a crime in progress. I prefer no crime.

    It may have been some other company with repair facilities in FL. I just remember reading this on some manufacturers web page a good while back about the law but not the details.

    You must not understand, the gun was originally owned by Roy Rogers so it never required reloading. Didn't you watch Roy and Dale while growing up or are you too young to remember them? :celebrate

    Don't know you know!? All bullets are designed to hit schools, children, hospitals, places that serve alcohol, democrats, republicans, black people, white people, purple people, illegals, U.S. citizens....it's like frickin' magic!

    That's why they all need to be banned.....because the bullets are hitting the wrong things....if they were safely under lock and key in govt facility where no one would get to them, the bullets couldn't harm anyone! (and block the GPS signal).

    Gun on the other hand, are the DEVIL! [/sarc]

    Don't you know??? All TV guns never need to be reloaded, especially in the 60's, 70's & 80's.

    I do remember watching the reruns of Roy and the six gun heroes. Ah, yes the Old West where the guns never ran out of bullets. I don't know why they needed gun belts with extra cartridges because the six shooters were self loading.

    Like the A-team, all those bullets flying and nobody getting hurt. Why can't they make shows like that?See how shooting guns driving down the road and at people can be?:shock:

    I know why the A-Team was being hunted. They wanted them to put on a demonstration of poor marksmanship. How does one even finish basic training and shoot that poorly. Out of 5,000 round fired at least one should accidently hit the target. Or possibly they were that good that they never intended to hit anyone and they wanted them as range instructors,
