    Trivial Commander USNR commission says "by and with the advice and consent of the Senate". Doesn't mean a thing but it always makes me smile. Still, if you look in the Congressional Record from some time in 1991 you will seem my name on a list. A LONG list.;)

    CNN. - A 16-year-old boy was arrested this week after police learned he was allegedly recruiting students to carry out a mass shooting at a high school in Berkeley, California, authorities said Wednesday.

    Police received a tip on May 21 of the teen's alleged plot targeting Berkeley High School, which also included a possible bombing, and obtained a search warrant for his home, Berkeley Police said in a statement.
    The search turned up parts to explosives and assault rifles as well as several knives and electronic items that could be used to create weapons, police said.

    This week, our local school district canceled school due to a threat on social media. Police were able to find the 16 year old boy who lived in a nearby city. He said it was a joke. He is being charged with inducing panic, a felony. Parents complained about everything under the sun. The district should have canceled sooner…. They should have closed all the schools in the district…. The police shouldn’t charge the kid with a felony since it was a joke…. People are so stupid. I think the district and the police acted quickly and appropriately.

    This same week, another nearby school district had a similar threat. They increased security but did not cancel school. I don’t know yet if their police found the kid or what happened.

    Absolutely. I carried on campus when I attended uni as a student many years ago. I carry in my vehicle now, but I don't generally walk around in public armed with a gun.

    Don't tell me you leave your gun in your car.

    In the deep south that is very common.

    Where I live the sheriff is on the news asking people to lock their cars because some neighborhood or another has a rash of "break ins" where guns are getting taken from unlocked cars. In fact, in Georgia there is law that prevents a gun owners from getting in any trouble for unsafe storage. The common view is that a thief is a theif and making it hard on them is not your problem, it is the thief that is the bad person.

    I personally think that if folks are pro 2nd, they should be full pro 2nd, well regulated. so store weapons like a military unit does when not actually on range or in combat. Weapon, bolt/firing pin, mags and ammo all stored separately under lock and key and annual requalification to exercise the right to have them.

    So, how does one pop someone in anger in the spur of the moment?

    Hmmm…. I wonder if this thread just shed some light on the car break in I had many years ago. One morning, I got in my car to go to work and take the kid to preschool. The entire contents of my car were completely tossed. For a moment, I thought maybe my husband was frantically looking for something, but the car reeked of cigarettes too. And then I saw the cops at a neighbor’s house. I found out that someone went pretty much car to car. No clue what they were looking for. Nothing was missing from my car. Loose change, GPS, old cell phone (I used to keep it for 911 backup)— Nothing was missing. Just the entire glove box and the center console completely emptied and tossed. I guess it is entirely possible they were looking for cars that had guns in them. Especially since nothing else was taken. I don’t know if anything was missing from any other cars.

    My husband is ex-military and current police. This is pretty much what he does.

    I love rights that are subject to annual requalification :D

    I'm not hellbent on destruction so I don't delve too deep into these things, but I see more potential damage being done with the 10-17 gallons of petrol in the car than with the 15 rounds through a handgun. With a solid enough plan a guy could do more damage if I just left the keys in the car.

    Neither would be a smart decision.
