Re: Coronavirus death vs. auto accident

So you don't mind more people dying? I'm not sure what people's point is when they point out "corona isn't killing as many people as x". Elon Musk's favorite line is, "If cars were invented today, they would be electric." And he is absolutely right. What he fails to mention is if they were invented...

Re: So I want a suppressor...

Obama executive order 41(P) had nothing to do with an executive order.....it was an ATF rule change that started due to lobbying by groups for eliminating the CLEO sign off requirement. I'm no expert in NFA. I mostly know to stay away. Sorry if I editorialized history- in my head that is how it hap...

Re: So I want a suppressor...

A lot of folks are out of date. Obama executive order, post Newtown shooting- fingerprints now required for a transfer to trust (used to be only individual), but removed chief law enforcement officer (cleo) signoff requirement. Basically an effort making both processes more similar. What did it have...

Re: Still a few guns at Walmart

I swear I could have read they got rid of guns entirely from everywhere after one of the shootings. Huh. No ARs (quite a while). Recent change was no .223, no 7.62x39, no handgun ammo, no ammo that does not mention hunting (.22s are ok, assuming the packaging talked hunting instead of target shooti...

Re: Idea for social isolation

Idea for social isolation: Tell people to shop for essentials only on odd or even days, according to their home address, e.g. 1002 Main St on even days. This could reduce store crowds 50% and costs nothing. I realize many FSN guys are grumpy old farts that criticize everything and are already very ...

Re: Just some flu statistics

102 people die daily in the US from car accidents, 4.5 of those are under 16- non-drivers. The US is safer compared to much of the world which totals over a million deaths annually. If we cared about saving lives the only thing we should be doing is working on self driving cars.

Re: Anyone live near RR tracks?

My grandmother's house was ~25' in front of the commuter rail. It ran hourly M-F 50 after the hour westbound and 23 after eastbound. Weekend service switched to 33 after westbound and cut to every other hour except for 9a-12p and 4p-8p (back to hourly), eastbound had trains every 2 hours on the week...

Isn't such a joke now, is it.
Actually it is more of one. Nothing has changed and it seems quite a bit of panic has set in. I think we're right around Y2K levels of crazyness. The panic is the problem.

There is still no danger unless you are already nearly dead.

You can call his shop. If the person answers, "Why the @$%& are you calling?" it's him.
