I've seen an interview with the 5 kids other places and the girl with the blond hair does get to talk.
I have always thought suicide is one of the occurrences if the gun wasn't there at the moment of deepest desperation perhaps the person could come out of it a bit and live to live another day.I just never hear that mentioned, or ,maybe I'm not reading much about the whole issue and I've missed it. Has this issue been brought up much in the debate?
- For the Love of Pigs
Posters at Daily Kos are enthusiastic about this move and some claim they will shop there more. One poster talked about getting a rifle case for their "light sabers". Another poster recommended a fishing rod case.“We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a spokeswoman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.”
Light saber fighting is a real thing?
I imagine fewer fatalities ;-)
Huge sporting goods chain says it will be purging and destroying assault-style weapons

My son needs a rifle case with which to carry his collection of professional/competition-grade lightsabers when he teaches or goes to practice or events. Maybe we should go to Dick’s.
My translation?, The stocks and barrels that make them "look" evil will proably be destroyed but it's that tricky recycle verbiage. What I think it means? The lower receivers and bolt group will be re-sold to "the highest bidder" in bulk. The bolt group and lower are what makes an AR an AR, the other stuff is what makes them look like ARs. The bolt group and lower are worth about 3/4 of the price of the rifle.
It's technically called the bolt carrier group. In any event, combined with the lower receiver it's about $400. I don't think Dicks is throwing them way either. Here's how it works; they get sold to a foreign country arms dealer so they are not in America any longer. But since they are not select fire and not illegal in America the arms dealer sells them back to the market with the most demand so they get the best price which is.... America, to say a Cheaper than Dirt (for example) or similar company.
Interestingly enough the corporate guys that run Dicks may not even know they will end up back in America. But there's an attorney that does and he conveniently forgets to mention it when he comes up with this great idea that buys him some good will from the corporate guys running Dicks. Of course that is until one of those serial numbers end up back in the news because it turned up laying on the floor of a school hall next to dead kid who was mad at everyone who picked on him.
Cynicism runs in the family
I don't completely understand how company B can make money doing what you described but I don't doubt it happens.
The carrier is moved forward and backwards by gas that is trapped from the initial round's explosion which is the only movement in traditional way There are no traditional springs, which at the time was pretty unique.
Even civilians, and I would bet even folks here have heard the M16 (original military nomenclature for the AR 15) is a bad rifle, because it jams. Not true. It jams because the inventor told the military they must not use ball type ammunition/powder but they went ahead and used it anyway. Residue from cheaper powder builds and clogs the "trap" causing jams. Once again, good kids in Vietnam died because they couldn't be first on the trigger during a confrontation, all due to the government thinking they were smarter than an obvious genius who spent his life developing that one rifle.
My buddy Como and I, when we were young soldiers (We were solders once and young) had pooled our money together to buy the book The Black Rifle, It is considered the bible of the rifle and is quite expensive - but if you want to know about the rifle. The Black Rifle is the book to read. Anyway we came to a page where the inventor, Gene Stoner, an assistant and a guy with a booney hat, big dark glasses - obvious CIA or intelligence officer were photographed looking at the Bolt Carrier Group. The caption said; An "unidentified admirer examines the bolt carrier group. We laughed often about that photograph and caption, how the intelligence guy was an "unidentified admirer". Memories.
Anyway there you have it, I'm sure no one is interested but if you want to make informed opinions EP, I'm happy to talk to you all day long about that rifle. I don't consider myself and expert on anything except that rifle. And I'm not trying to say anyone should be able to go out and buy one, I don't believe that anymore rather I'm defending the engineering of the rifle which was as I said, genius. It saved my life many times, Thank you Eugene Stoner
p.s never saw it on the news, but I don't have a yearbook yet so I can't speak for that
But for your immediate situation what I have found is that it is what is in your heart that matters. You did something for all the right reasons, something you believed in. That others may have had other reasons doesn't matter towards what you did.
I thank you for doing what you did. As I read you were a person that hunts and likes guns but wanted to support people who were harmed by others using guns in a heinous manner I was pleased to know young people can make such mature decisions. You did well, it's what's in your heart.
