Good luck with the forthcoming birth and everything else, Da Butt!

Thanks!

Is that allowed? It wouldn't be here.

It's perfectly legal to travel with a firearm in one's vehicle, as it's considered an extension of one's home. Different states have different laws, however. In places like California, they're going to expect the firearm to be unloaded and locked in the trunk/boot.

I have a Texas License to Carry which allows me to carry concealed away from my home and automobile (with restrictions). I'll be driving through New Mexico and Colorado, and both states recognize Texas LTCs, so I'm well within the law. Cops actually breathe a sigh of relief when they pull over someone who is licensed, because they know the person has passed a background check and isn't a convicted criminal. LTCs are tied to one's driver license, so before they even approach the vehicle they know who they're dealing with. Roll down the window, hand over both licenses, and the cop will ask if you have a firearm. Then they'll ask where it is located, and they'll either ask you to safely hand it to them, or they'll tell you to avoid reaching for that area. Easy peasy and politeness all around. I'm sure it happens thousands of times per day in Texas.

If you're thick enough to do this, Hell mend you.

Nothing says "thick" like being prepared to protect oneself while driving 900 miles through a desolate desert that's infested with rattlesnakes, bears, mountain lions and the occasional carjacker.

P.S. I think Hell does a whole lot more rending than mending.

You're realky pitiful. If you're prepared to do this, you've probably shirked all the other precautions, You could be driving up there with the virus ready to infect a pregnant woman, just for your own satisfaction. What an arsehole, but hey, you have a Mensa level IQo so you know better. God help your daughter who has such an uncaring parent. Or is she as daft as you?

I'm leaving this place partly but not completely because grown adults with families are being complete c**ts to each other and that is not comedy. Some bitter Scottish woman who thinks she knows America and it's laws and politics better than it's inhabitants has diluted this place with bile. It's not nice to see and there is no noticeable moderation going on.

Briosaid, With respect but please stop being so f**king toxic. You're a grown woman with a family for f**ks sake and you treat a decorated military man like Dabutt like nothing more than shit on your shoe. you know nothing about him but since I joined he has never once retaliated to your relentless insults. I used to think it was a bit of an act but it's not.

pitiful

arsehole

uncaring

daft

Four insults there. Why?

Oh, and bye.

Well said! I've often been tempted to do the same but keep getting drawn back for some reason.

Perhaps it's unnecessary to encourage these general discussion threads on what is supposed to be a comedy site. Especially, as you say, with the lack of moderation.

My mind goes back to this conversation approaching the new year:

Quote: Briosaid @ 24th December 2019, 9:09 PM

Yes, there are a number of smart arses who contribute bugger all except criticism.

Quote: Rood Eye @ 24th December 2019, 10:24 PM

Perhaps we should all be making a New Year's resolution - specifically to be a bit more careful when posting and, in general, to be a lot nicer to each other in 2020?

You know it makes sense. Cool

Quote: Briosaid @ 24th December 2019, 10:53 PM

A worthy sentiment but EVERYBODY woukd need to subscribe.

I took every possible precaution (including getting a TDaP booster vaccination last week) and I'm visiting at my daughter's request, so your rant is based upon nothing but your own imagination and prejudices.

P.S. My daughter voted for Trump in 2016 and will do so again this November. The same goes for her husband, my son, and the majority of my friends and neighbors.

Stay safe out there!

I hadn't noticed the gun bit. I'm talking about travelling in this current situation. We can't just go and visit who we want and love.

We have recommendations to stay at home as much as possible, but there are no restrictions on travel within the country.

How would the authorities even enforce a travel ban in the UK?

Yes I'm not quite sure what the problem is. Briosaid and Dabutt cannot see the other's viewpoint.

And yes I'm always taking the piss out of the Scotch.

I haven't been to see my partner for 6 weeks except on Zoom. We're about 10 miles apart but we are abiding by the recommendations.

Give this some thought. When I joined this message board, there were a whole number of females. Gradually they left. Some joined ... and left. I know for a fact that one left because of the antagonism from male members

So, in response to men leaving this site because of your antagonism, you're complaining about antagonistic men chasing women away? :S

I have no trouble with her holding a different viewpoint whatsoever. I however, don't resort to calling her inhuman, etc.

One of us is understanding and open-minded, and one of us lives in Scotland. ;)

Look at the numbers, numpty. ONE man, many women. But maybe you think that's a good proportion. I rest my case.

Your case, as it were, is built on evidence that is quite flimsy.

Quote: Briosaid @ 6th May 2020, 10:57 PM

And your point Is?

And your point in posting that response is?

Keep on being you, although if you drive enough people away it may just be the two of us left here.

Drive people away ? You're talking about ONE person.

Another person said that they've considered leaving, too. Who knows how many others have done so without saying anything. Being abrasive and rude is not a trait that's strictly reserved for males of the species.

Quote: Briosaid @ 6th May 2020, 11:24 PM

many of whom abhor your constant boasting about weapons?

I can't recall ever boasting about weapons.

You have a very , very short memory. We never end the story about your weapons.
