Re: The NRA and outdoor brands like Camelbak & Camp Chef

Why can't we have several solutions? Make gun sales and ownership more arduous, AND physically protect the students, AND provide better mental health/identification programs? we can! I think it's very possible to come up with compromises and things that will actually work. I just fear the knee jerk...

Re: The NRA and outdoor brands like Camelbak & Camp Chef

How is it weeds? I mean, the insurance, will only slow a person who obeys the laws anyway. There you have it. Them is the weeds. If proof of insurance is required to purchase an assault rifle to begin with, you can’t get one without it unless you are insurable, and history tells us insurance compan...

Re: The NRA and outdoor brands like Camelbak & Camp Chef

Yg, you’re getting stuck in the weeds. The insurance would only be a difficulty for entry, not some magic solution. It would add another check on evaluation of competence for owning an assault weapon. It’s not about the utility of the insurance policy but the added layer of scrutiny for each indivi...

Re: The NRA and outdoor brands like Camelbak & Camp Chef

I feel that insurance, being a manmade contract, can be written to do what is wanted and needed instead of being used as is. It is certainly worth looking at the possibility. If it won't work, fine, but I suspect it might. what would insurance to, to cut down on gun violence? I mean, how would it d...

I don’t know. I think protests & boycotts can work. And if it’s something you believe in and want to stand up for, why not? Boycotts/protests can be very powerful. indeed they can. What I'm saying, though, is boycotting those particular brands, will have no effect on this issue. none. It will only ...

The direct answer to how fast they sell out isn’t just “quickly”, it’s literally as fast as the servers can process the ticket orders. It’s not something you have to get done pretty quick, it’s something you have to be on the very instant they go on sale. and whatever you do, don't try to sneak in!...
