Re: New Zealand Mosque Shootings

What I'd like to know is what were the time hacks from the first shot to first 911 call, 911 call to police being dispatched, and police dispatch to police arrival, as well as overall time from first shot to first cop(s) arriving on scene. The video shows the police rolling in as the shooter is dri...

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shootings

It was good to read of the fight back. I think it really shows how clearly what cowards these guys really are. Shooting unarmed children is one thing. When confronted by someone not cowed by his guns? Wilted like a daisy. Most active shooters when confronted either flee, surrender or commit suicide...

Re: There are No Rules in a Gunfight

My point two years ago was more along the lines that if there was an actual gun fight then it would have been applicable to the gunfighting thread. Dude never came back so it is what it is. Outside of military combat I have never been shot at and thankfully never been hit by any of the things that p...

It all goes back to getting what you pay for. I see tons of knock off's in other types of power equipment chainsaws should not be any different. If you are like most home owners that uses a saw maybe a few times a decade and then whatever you get will work. IF you are trying to do anything serious w...

He had stated that he was not going to fight NZ LEO's, that he had no beef with them. I imagine he surrendered when confronted but there were reports of a vehicle crashed in to a tree, likely his.

I don't want to conflate marijuana in to the issue but I have gone from being mildly skeptical that it has any benefit at all to being fully on board as a substitute for opioids. It is a much safer drug and non-addictive even if habit forming. I have serious doubts that it can control pain the way o...

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shootings

One of the most discouraging things about these recent mass shootings is how so many people immediately rush to fit them into their own narrative and agenda-pushing, without regard for the actual facts in the case. Especially the claims that it is a "false flag" attack designed by (insert name of e...

I never thought I would say this about any animation. It's better than Heavy Metal . It lacks the great soundtrack but otherwise outdoes it in every way.

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shootings

Carrying weapons in defense of self and others is generally not allowed in NZ. However NZ is normally quite safe. More people were murdered in the attack then in the whole country last year. NZ does have one of the highest rates of gun ownership in the world per capita though.

Due to all the prior abuses there will be quite a bit of clamping down. T...
