    Yet another reason why gun control won't work: Technology

    I saw this article awhile ago, but didn't have time to post until now. I apologize if this has already been discussed, but I couldn't find any reference to it on the forums here: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/07/30/3d_printed_assault_rifle/ My background is in computer science (a career...

    Children and firearm safety

    Hello all, Just some questions to all the parents out there that have taught their children about firearm safety. How did you broach the subject and how was it received? Any recommendations? Any issues from your spouse? My wife carries from time to time but is not thrilled with the kids...

    Sound suppressors in CT

Do any of you out there have issues with...

    CT Legal AR-15

    So, I'm in the market for a CT legal AR-15 or equivalent. Currently, I own a FNAR 7.62x51mm (as well as some bolt action rifles) which I love, but all are pretty heavy with the exception of my Remington Alaskan 7mm hunting rifle. I don't know a heck of a lot outside of my GoogleFu research...

    "High Capacity Mags"

    Just out of curiosity, how many of my fellow CT residents are snapping up "high capacity" magazines out of fear of them being banned? As I'm originally from California, I'm particularly sensitive to this situation. I have to say that as a G19 owner I have purchased a decent quantity of 15+...

    An armed society is a polite society

    I see the quote of "An armed society is a polite society" a lot. For the sake of discussion/argument, why is this so? My wife was born and partially raised in Africa which we travel to alot to visit family. In Somalia (yes, I've visited there), everyone is armed but I do not see any of the...

    Arizona shooting

    http://m.cnn.com/primary/_mdeYDi-iXFnIYeMN5 I'm really sad to read of this. My wife went to undergrad with Gabrielle Giffords in California. I pray for all of the families involved with this incident. If only someone nearby had been armed to stop this guy (maybe they were, I haven't read...
