    Here's another one. I think that Trump is making such a fuss now in order to gain concessions should it get to the stage where he is seriously threatened by prison time - even if his followers are not so aware of this. So he will string them along as far as he can and relish their support.

    I don't see it as individual failings.

    I see it as a systematic failing based on the the ambiguities and outdated definitions of the second amendment, but I am repeating myself.

    But let's jump back to the very first topics which we briefly touched on. The second amendment was never meant to be about gun control or liberties. It is about limiting the power of the government.

    "Systemic" has gotten so popular.

    Everyone then knew "arms' were such as the sword, pike, and muzzle-loading firearms which were then state of the art, and as such suitable for defense of life liberty and pursuit of happiness,against the enemies thereof.



    To put into the first amendment that you gotta study lible laws before you exercise your rights
    Is comparable to similar provisions written into the second.

    And yes, it is precisely and exclusively on the individual to be responsible, with suitable provisions involving age or the like.

    Those "J frame" handguns have very small wood grips.
    (I carried that size once.) I recommend considering a
    only-slightly-larger more hand filling rubber grip.
    (I favored Hogue brand for revolvers.)

    Btw, you're wise to switch to a comfortable load.
    Many shooters make the mistake of using too powerful
    a caliber, which leads to bad habits, eg, flinching.
    Accurate shooting is relaxed, & unfolds without discomfort.
    (My resting pulse when target shooting was in the 40 BPM
    range back in the day.)

    Be safe out there.

    Its awful unlawful to have a gun here, so its moot (not mute) anyway.

    I did consider immaturity & petulance as an explanation for his behavior.

    Oh, well...if things ever change for you,
    my advice would be useful. More so
    than my abysmal French lessons.

    The proper way would be through a constitutional convention.

    .
    There is a legal work around. Nothing improper about it.

    If there is, I'm not aware of it.
    Anything outside a constitutional convention sounds highly fishy and corrupt.

    I think revolvers feel really weird. And due to that weirdness and shape, I call them wiener guns.
    I've still never got to fire an AK47 or AR15. The AR I could see it being one I would like for target shooting.

    Why would you make that claim. And I find it rather surprising that you are unaware of the work around that is in progress. That demonstrates that you have not investigated this matter very deeply at all:

    National Popular Vote Interstate Compact - Wikipedia.

    States that agree to this compact agree that once the total electoral vote of the signatories exceeds 269 Electoral Votes then all of the Electoral Votes of the states involved will go to the national popular vote winner. It is Constitutional. Read the article and tell me what you think

    He probably meant through the process of a Constitutional Amendment. Not the same thing at all.

    A popular vote system is generally, at this time, worse for Republicans.

    Maybe Trump wants to destroy the Republican party?

    He isn't that forward looking. He is a narcissist, very focused on self, and has an inferiority issue...that's what causes all the bluster. His ego is fragile and he can't handle losing.
