As of now the death toll has risen to 59 with over 520 people injured. I hope and pray for all of the injured to pull through. While I certainly believe in gun rights and I don’t believe in tightening gun laws, we need to take actions of some sort to prevent such atrocities in the future.

I found it interesting this guy was mid 60’s. Doesnt fit the profile of a typical active shooter.

Initial report say he was “known to law enforcement” but had no serious criminal history. I read that as = nut case.

I don’t think age really has much to do with whether or not somebody is an active shooter. Active shooters come in all ages. I will say that gender does seem to make a difference though. Active shooters, as I’ve noticed tend to be men.

For those of you just waking up there was a domestic terrorist attack in Las Vegas with 50 killed so far and over 400 injured from the latest numbers I just saw.

Largest mass shooting in US history now. It sounded like he had an automatic weapon but I’m curious if it could’ve been a bump stock?

Yes I just saw it on the news. I also believe he had a fully automatic weapon, that is what it sounds like in the report. As of right now the report didn’t say anything about whether or not he obtained the guns legally but if he used a full automatic I doubt he had obtained it legally since to do so would’ve meant he needed a class III firearms permit and those are hard to get and they only allow you to get full automatics that were manufactured before 1986. My condolences to all the victims and their families. The anti gun crowd will no doubt go wild.

Guns • What the 2nd Amendment means

September 28, 2017 Photon Guy 0

The 2nd Amendment, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Now, some people like to say that what its saying is that you should have access to weapons only if you’re part of a well regulated militia, another words, only if you’re part of the police or military. So only if you work for the government and if you’ve got a job for the government that involves using weapons should you have access to them. The thing is, that would be absurd. Why would a government have to give itself permission to bear arms? I’ve never known of any government in the world that gives itself to bear arms, and yet all the governments in the world do have weapons. Now, some people like to say that the 2nd amendment doesn’t mean that you can have any weapon for any reason and that would include “military grade weapons.” Citizens should not have access to military grade weapons. Well here’s the problem, when you use terminology such as “military grade,” that can include knives. Infantry soldiers are issued fighting knives and so when you say citizens shouldn’t have access to military grade weapons that could mean such knives. To say citizens shouldn’t be able to get knives just because soldiers use them is absurd. No, if you ask me, and I think this is quite clear, the 2nd Amendment means a citizen should have access to the same weapons an individual soldier would use. Now, some might argue that with that line of reasoning Im saying a citizen should have access to tanks, battleships, nuclear bombs, ect. Well no. Im talking about weapons an individual soldier would use such as a fully automatic or burst fire rifle. An individual soldier does not use a tank, it takes a team to operate a tank. Both battleship and nuclear bombs obviously take lots of people to operate. But any weapon an individual soldier uses and operates by himself a citizen should be able to legally acquire and possess. That is what the 2nd Amendment says.

As far as keeping the ammo from condensation, the buckets should work fine. As far as the temperature, as long as the temperature in the buckets doesn’t exceed 130 Fahrenheit or get cold enough to condense moisture in the bucket it will be fine (you might want to add one of those desiccant packs).

As for a reason you might want to use the metal cans instead of the buckets is this: ammo tends to self ignite (cook off) around 270 degrees (or higher), and if there is a fire, the metal cans give a margin of safety that they buckets do not. That, ease of transport, and making it easy for you to remember where your ammo is are the only reasons I can think of.

Ease of transport and ease of storage are good reasons for using the metal cans instead of buckets. Aside from that, metal cans are definitely better for long term storage.
