Everything Else / Kroger Making You Safe!!!
« Last post by Taurian on Today at 10:02:18 AM »
"According to The Shooting Wire, their affiliate The Outdoor Wire recently obtained a memo from Kroger executives which informed all print magazine distributors who serviced Kroger brand and affiliated stores that the grocery chain would no longer carry, display or sell magazines with ďassault weapons content,Ē though firearms-related publications not containing such content would still be permitted."

In addition, the Outdoor Wire will no longer sell magazines.

I am feeling so much safer, already!

In fact I feel way much safer, because I have cut all ties with Kroger. I used to get my gas at Kroger where I received anywhere from $.03 to $0.10 off per gallon using their "Consumer Card."  I get the same price (or less) at Quik-Trip.

My Grandson gave me a Kroger Gift Card for a Christmas present. I gave it, and the Consumer Card to the wifey.  I told her to use it for groceries if she so wished, but they will not get another dime out of me.

Good for Wyoming!

This is from the early 70's. There was a guy we went to school with that was a bully and a trouble maker, always in trouble in some sort or another. I graduated high school in 1973 so it was a few years prior to that. At one of his court hearings (so the story goes) the judge gave him a choice between jail time or Army. He chose to go into the Army. When his parents dropped him off at the The Cleveland airport to report to boot camp, they were surprised to see him sitting in their living room when they got home. He got into more trouble for that. So the next time they took him, they walked him to the plane (you could do that back then) and said their good-byes.  He was just about ready to finish boot-camp when he went AWOL from base. He stole a 7-UP delivery truck and drove it to his home town. A government vehicle came to his house and took him away. We never seen him again.  ::)
Good news!

Perhaps, but I'm not sure about that

Edited: I was in a hurry when I replied, sorry.
What I MEANT to imply earlier about the physical attributes necessary for induction into the Army in the very early '70's was that the numbers were so depleted by then, and "soldiers" and anything "military" were so much in derision that they were willing to take just about anyone willing to take the Oath, don the uniform, and learn the trade.
I have no direct knowledge of this, but I HEARD back then that many young men were offered suspended sentences on their crimes (no idea about the range of severity), IF they enlisted for military service.
As always, I could be wrong.

Another law passed by the Wyoming Legislature and signed into law this week by Governor Mead concerns concealed carry in churches.
I had no idea that California was a Stand Your Ground state.
Are you sure this map is correct?
I am going to have to check that out.
Can you post the link where that map came from.

Hey look what I found,We have something called: California's "Castle Doctrine" (PC Section 198.5)

While I tend to agree...

I joined the U.S.of Army at the tender age of 17 (my Mother had to sign-off on me, of course). So, I could not buy a firearm of any length. However, before my 18th birthday I had qualified with the M14, got to shoot a 'Ma-deuce' and pulled the switch on the M60A1 tank's 105mm. I also had the chance to fire the M60,  play with the M79, and qualify with the 1911. Of course, there was the M16, but I had turned 18 years old by the time I got to play with it. Lest I forget about pulling the pin on a few grenades, we also have that.

With that said, I could buy a long gun when I was overseas or stateside. And, when I turned twenty-one I purchased my first handgun.

So yes, you have a point.
