https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2016/05/01/toddlers-have-shot-at-least-23-people-this-year/?tid=sm_tw

This past week, a Milwaukee toddler fatally shot his mother after finding a handgun in the back seat of the car they were riding in. The case drew a lot of national attention given the unusual circumstances: Little kids rarely kill people, intentionally or not.

But this type of thing happens more often than you might think. Since April 20, there have been at least seven instances in which a 1- , 2- or 3-year-old shot themselves or somebody else in the United States:

On April 20, a 2-year-old boy in Indiana found the gun his mother left in her purse on the kitchen counter and fatally shot himself.
The next day in Kansas City, Mo., a 1-year-old girl evidently shot and killed herself with her father's gun while he was sleeping.
On April 22, a 3-year-old in Natchitoches, La., fatally shot himself after getting hold of a gun.
On April 26, a 3-year-old boy in Dallas, Ga., fatally shot himself in the chest with a gun he found at home.
On April 27, the Milwaukee toddler fatally shot his mother in the car.
That same day, a 3-year-old boy in Grout Township, Mich., shot himself in the arm with a gun he found at home. He is expected to survive.
On April 29, a 3-year-old girl shot herself in the arm after grabbing a gun in a parked car in Augusta, Ga. She is also expected to survive.

I feel sad when I read stats like that, because they are preventable through simple education.

What really frustrates me and makes me sad is all the other preventable deaths.

Thousands die per day simply because they don't know how to eat properly and lack self control. Intentionally or not, they are also passing on deadly traits to their childen who are statistically most likely to die by their own fork.

Number of deaths for leading causes of death in 2013 (Centre for Disease Control):
Heart disease: 614,348 (1706.5 Per Day)
Cancer: 591,699 (1643.6 Per Day)
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 147,101 (408.6 Per Day)
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 136,053 (377.9 Per Day)
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 133,103 (369.7 Per Day
Alzheimer's disease: 93,541 (259.8 Per Day)
Diabetes: 76,488 (212.4 Per Day)
Influenza and Pneumonia: 55,227 (153.4 Per Day)
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 48,146 (133.7 Per Day)
Intentional self-harm (suicide): 42,773 (118.7 Per Day)

Maybe you should start a new thread if you get off on posting shit like that though.

I spent a good hour on the phone with Miramachi this afternoon, going through the steps to get an unknown gun registered. I was going through a box of jackets that my father had put aside for me before he passed, and to my surprise it contained more than just jackets; inside I also found a Traditions Trapper .50cal black powder percussion pistol. So, they walked me through going online and requesting a registration, so now it is hurry up and wait.

That's pretty slick!

Been looking at various binos for a while, was wanting to try something with a little more power than my 8x32 Bosch [HTML_REMOVED] Lombs. Prices vary from dirt cheap to deciding which child I don't want to go to university.

Anyways, Cabelas sent me an email and they are selling their 10x42 Vortex Diamondback binos for $219 with free shipping over $99. So, I popped into Wholesale Sports as I was in Langley and tried them, they seemed clear enough and easy to focus - but they wanted $359 for theirs. Got home, told my wife that she is just about to buy me my birthday present - the Vortex are in the mail.

Also, doesn't Cabelas have a really good return policy? I.E. you could order the whole catelog and send the ones you don't like back.

P.S. Did the hate thread finally implode?

Did Pemberton today. Man o man.. This is way to much fun. why do none of you own bikes?

My intruder isn't running but the old man picked up a cbr 600 and the weather has been conducive. Just need to redo my licence and I'd be down for some epics.

I popped back into Tiger Arms the other day and took a few pics of their Korth .357s. The black and blue model are each $9,900 and the gold one is $10,100. They let me hold the blue one, but I had to take off my ring and wear the white gloves. I was not allowed to work the action or the cylinder at all - just hold it. I love their proprietary blue model - just not the price.

Tiger arms has really impressed me. When I was looking for 9mm Makarov ammo they sold it too me $10.00 per box even though every store I found that had some in stock was selling it 4x as much. Westcoasthunting sold me the same caliber at $40.00 per box because I didnt know about Tigerarms at the time. Alot of the store I emailed or called didn't even get back to me.

I brought my Keltec Sub2000 in there to get a sling, they took the time and mounted it for me to try out before I bought it too make sure I liked it.

I haven't bought a firearm from them yet, but their pricing seems competitive and I like their customer service so far.

If you think Hitler was a socialist, you don't know what socialism is.

Good Video. Hitler is a Fascist.

Bernie is pushing a "political strategy focused on anti-big business, anti-bourgeois, and anti-capitalist"? Which is socialist?

I'm learning.

Renting is a rip off. Lots of cars that work for $500 or less.

Shooting IPSC is pretty rarified stuff IMO.

Which is my point, its still dominated by old people who got into it when you could walk out of the store with a handgun and apply for you black badge then compete across north america.

Its a really cool sport, and its being killed by bureaucrats.

Just curious as its bigger back east. I got my black badge certified 1989 .. Yup I'm " older" was pretty young at the time . 38 super race guns were all the rage. I competed with my favorite auto cz75. Super accurate and reliable with my own reloads.

.38 super is still popular, and the cz75 Shadow dominates the production class.

If you ask me, it's WAY to difficult to get into the sport and it has become very bureaucratic.
I had to send my application to IPSC BC 3 times after they took my money just to get my certificate for reasons they wouldn't tell me. Took about 2 months from when I completed the course.

This is the list you need to go through to compete in IPSC.

Apply for PAL : 1 Week
PAL Course : $100 - 8 Hours
RPAL Course : $100 - 8 Hours
RCMP Approval/Issue Licence : $80 - 3-12 Months

Gun Range Membership : $200-$400 - 0-12 Months waiting period.
A.T.T. - 1-7 Days
Handgun, Holster, Magazines, Belt : $400+ (More likely $1000)

Study Black Badge Manual for test - 8 Hours
ISPC Black Badge Course - $265 - 0-30 Day Waiting Period - 16 Hour Course
Ammo For Course - $120
Receive Certificate - 1 Month

Now you still don't have your Black Badge.

Sign up for qualifier - $85 0-3 months

If you prove yourself/or decide you actually like the sport, you can apply for your Black Badge after all of the above and compete.

Just to try the sport:

Waiting Periods : 6 month from start to finish would be fast. More likely 8-12 months average.
Classroom time : 36 Hours
Cost : Around $2000 to pay all your fees, buy a gun, and get the ammo to take the black badge course with.

Here's my new elk hunting rifle. Browning A-bolt in .338 win mag. Purchased at the gun show this weekend, so there is zero paperwork whatsoever on this. The seller didn't even ask my name.

Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk

Isn't the seller required to verify your a resident of the state you purchased that in?
