This is a very good video, before you tube takes it down, on our Second Amendment...it is worth watching. Get yourself a fresh cup of coffee and sit back, turn the volume up....it is worth the watch and listen.....

This guy points out many things that hit the nail on the head!!!

Outstanding presentation!  I listened to a speech by Florida Senator Bill Nelson yesterday and his appeal was just plain sick!  He has left his roots, his kin folks are ashamed of his most liberal stand, he never hit the issue correctly as this young man did.  Nelson gave us his reasoning why we have no need to hunt with an assault rifle, nothing about the Constitution and the precious 2nd amendment.
Bo, Thanks for alerting me to that fresh breath of air!

Tree - You know, I will and have missed Jason Chaffetz, Trey Gowdy, Darrell Issa when they leave Congress......but will glad to see Jeff Flake and little Bob Coker go!! The three amigos have always been right on the money and make good common sense when it came to all this crap that is going on in DC......Jim Jordan will be the only one left that has any sense at all.....and we need to Speaker Ryan to step up the plate and protect our Second Amendment rights.....

Another way to "disable" an AR15 is to remove the BCG (Bolt Carrier Group) or BCA (Bolt Carrier Assembly)....you can easily remove this one piece from your AR and lock it up after tagging it (just in case you have more than one AR in the house)....When I was married to my first wife who had two boys, I would lock up all the pistols and took the bolts out and label them and locked them up to and then ran a coated bicycle chain through the trigger housing and locked and finally put a lock on the closet in which I kept the firearms at with a double cylinder lock...the boys often would ask why I use so many locks....I said I want to keep the firearms safe.....I had the key to the lock box where all the keys were for the closet door and other firearm related locks where kept at.....never told anyone buy kep the lock box in my truck behind the front seat.....

But today it is real easy to remove the BCG and put keep it stored in a proper place....

Guys - What impressed me the most that he did not use a teleprompter or a written speech....yes it sure seems like the democ-rats fringes (on the West and East coast and in DC are trying to tell us what we need to know and do....yea right...

You tube has plenty of these type of speeches...watch them before they take them down....

You guys remember Columbine when the Dad of two of the victims who tragically died that day...found his speech on You Tube and here it is.....notice how the Congress men and women react to it......

Brother, you've hit the nail on the head again!  Thanks for bringing it to our eyes and ears! True words about Columbine and very applicable to the same mess in Parkland today.

Tree - I have said this before, when a drunk driver kills someone, they always blamed the driver, right...they don't go after the car manufacturer or the lobby for the cars or the Alcohol manufacturer or the bar or bartender....nope they go after the driver.....so why doesn't the media or lawmakers go after these folks? The same premise could be said about the NRA. Why do they always point to the gun. Its the gun's fault, yea that bad mean looking weapon and besides every media type person knows that AR stands for Assault Rifle....LOL. ##$%#117,    --099-780  ....it stands for Armalite Rifle which first made the M16 for the Army. Of course they are not interested in the truth because it does not push their agenda...

Did you hear yesterday 3-7-2018 where the Governor of Connecticut called the NRA a terrorist organization.....when will these liberals wake up? it is going to be an interesting mid-term election!

I can only hope that the libs get spanked as bad in the mid-terms as they did in Nov '16.  Heard the other day that the primaries in Texas showed a fantastic turnout by the Republicans despite the media claiming in advance that the Dems were gaining momentum.  I'm not opposed to someone just for being a Democrat, but if they're on this far left liberal snowflake goofiness then I'm sorry they gotta go away.

Madgomer - Growing up in Atlanta, I always thought the Delta, Coke and CNN was the pride of all the residents of Atlanta...wow such great companies. BUT NOT ANY MORE!!

Sold all of my Delta Stock off last week when Delta went against the NRA, sold my Coke Stock off long ago because of their very liberals policies and CNN is the laughing stock of the media!! I remember when Ted Turner started CNN and he said in a CNN Interview that he spent more about a million a day getting CNN run and running. We always turned to CNN when so big news would break!! What has happen to all these one-time great companies. I suspect that our Government got somehow involved and ruined these companies, just like they do every company or program their so called "help" with. From then on it is a disaster in the making.....

And now they want to get their hands on our Second Amendment Rights! You saw what the Clinton and Obama's did to the gun industry! They both were great salesmen for the industry! Everyone now owns one or two AR15 or your neighbor does for sure....

Never trust any politician or the media again....They will stand and tell you what is wrong with Washington and what they do if elected and then once theyr are there they become a puppet for their party's whip/Leader...it does not matter if they are Republican or democrat...they all play the game the same way....

According to the Demo-Rats and the media, the dems will sweep the mid-terms....what a joke...Prez Trump had it right all along, we needed a business man in the White House not another career politician....Prez Trump has been right on a lot of things and does not pander to either the far left, the left, or even the far right....just plain common sense is what he is all about....

And what about the Clinton's, Bill was impeached as Prez and Hilary, his so call wife, is running from the law, trying to deflect the truth about her so called campaign. Both Hilary and Bill, even Chelsea should be locked up for every and every and rot in jail solidity confinement if you ask me....but this is just my Opinion

I'm good with that Bo - despite all of the media's hatred towards our current prez, I do think a very large number of Americans appreciate that he's trying to lead in the right direction and doesn't really give a rat's behind about either party's far left/far right zealots.  I can't say I agree 100% with everything he's done but his batting average is way way way better than that clown who was in the White House before him.

Well, our illustrious Florida governor caved in by signing a bill that contained a requirement of being 21 years old to buy a rifle.  Don't agree with this in the least and the NRA has already began it's challenge on this portion of the bill.  If this stands, then we should raise the voting age to 21, the drivers license to age 21, also include an age requirement to serve in the military beginning at age 21 and I suppose any LEOs should be 21 before they can be trusted with a firearm. 
There are some portions of the bill that are good but this part stinks!
I went to Parris Island 54 years ago and was trusted with an M14 when I was 17 years old, Mother and Dad had to sign for me when I was a senior in high school in order for me to join the Corps, times have changed.
Gov. Scott is serving his last term as governor because of term limits and he is said to be considering a run against the ultra liberal Senator Bill Nelson.  Scott would certainly get my vote over Nelson but he will also get some well deserved criticism for setting age requirements on owning a rifle and including a 3 day waiting period on all firearms.  There has been a 3 day waiting period to purchase a handgun unless the buyer was a concealed carry licensee.

Does the bill state that those under 21 cannot OWN a gun, OR does it state that they just cannot BUY a gun? I owned a car before I was 16 and had a drivers licenses. I just didn't drive it on the street. That being said, the new hunting age in Florida now becomes 21? No need for youth hunting and shooting sports permitted? I'm so confused???  @--0--0117
