dittybopper: They've 3D printed plastic AR-15 lower receivers that lasted 600+ rounds without failing.


"I know what you're thinking. 'Did he fire 600 shots or only 599?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a 3D printed AR-16, a homemade hobbyist replica of one of the most influential selective-fire rifle designs in the world, and could blow up in my face, I've got to ask you one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do I, punk?"

probesport: a general rule of thumb is that if you do not break any laws you aren't doing anything illegal.

dittybopper: Tell you what: In the true spirit of compromise, I'd be willing to accept universal background checks for all non-family gun transfers in order to get national reciprocity.


So you're saying I can gay marry my gun dealer to avoid background checks?

I'm willing to concede that NYC often treats these issues with an absurd degree of punishment, however I do not want a city full of armed tourists, regardless of the background checks.  Now, if you'd like to make arrangements with NYC law enforcement upon your visit to our city, I'd be more than willing to have them mind your weapon while you sample the fare at a different Applebees or Olive Garden than the one you frequent in your town.

fredklein: WalkingCarpet: , the main purpose of a firearm is to kill another living being.

Wrong. The purpose of a gun is to fire a bullet when triggered. Where that bullet goes and what happens because of it is up to the user.


Dammit, I've been wrong about the main purpose of firearms this whole time.  Tonight I'm going open my beer with a bullet or fire into the air to stop my dog from dragging his ass along the carpet.

LineNoise: because you know, when I'm up on the observation deck, it strikes me as a perfect time to open some boxes, or fix their plumbing.

Its a famous high profile site with lots of people in close quarters. I


RIP LineNoise, killed in mid-post by a wrench dropped from the observation deck of the Empire State Building.

dittybopper: f you have a permit that passes some federal standard on training and background checks issued by your home state, then why not let them carry everywhere it's legal to carry a gun?


Because NYC is very different them yokelsville, south hickstucky.

The chance of law enforcement or others not being readily available to you if you need help is lower (especially in a place like the farking empire state building). You have a far greater chance of hitting something other than a cow or a barn if you miss your target. What passes for threatening\suspicious behavior in bumblefark is just how we hail cabs or tell the guy selling us a dirty water dog to go heavy on the onions.

and most of all, we don't live in fear afraid of our own shadows every day.

Nothing against guns, but CCW in a place like NYC is far more trouble than it is worth.

WalkingCarpet: "KelvinTheClown: Remember, gay marriage licenses from state to state will be honored, but your gun permit is not.

Until someone gets killed by or menaced with someone holding a gay marriage license this analogy makes zero sense."



Fine - your killing and menacing of the English language put aside, here's a better comparison: Drivers' licenses from state to state are honored, but gun permits are not. Meanwhile, VASTLY more people each year are killed and injured by cars than by guns. And while driving is a privilege (i.e. nobody technically has to grant it), gun possession is supposedly a constitutionally protected right.

Yet people like yourself are perfectly OK with someone going to jail as a result of the latter being denied, while you would no doubt be up in arms (so to speak) about any infringement on the former. And because there are more people who drive cars than there are gun owners, society condones that. There's a term for this - it's called tyranny of the majority.
