Nukes - how many is enough?
US nuclear arsenal:
The USA had a peak stockpile of 31,255 warheads in 1967, but such wild overkill was seen as crazy and wasteful, so this was reduced in several treaties with the Soviets and others to our current nuclear stockpile (usable and not) of 4,480 warheads (2017) where this excludes 2,800 that are retired and awaiting dismantlement. Our current strategic arsenal is 1,411 deployed strategic nuclear warheads ready to fly. That is plenty to eradicate countries you don't agree with (a Pentagon study during the Cold War concluded that around 300 nuclear bombs dropped on a an average-sized country will render it "destroyed" economically and militarily). But how many is enough for the US's military needs?

Donald Trump now reportedly wanted almost 10 times more nuclear weapons in the US's arsenal.

During a meeting in July with America’s highest-ranking national security leaders, the President was shown a chart depicting the US’s steady reduction of its nuclear weapons stockpile since the late 1960s. But Mr Trump apparently wanted a bigger stockpile, surprising his advisers including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, according to NBC News. In response, officials told the President about the legal and practical impediments to a nuclear buildup and how the current military posture is stronger than it was at the height of the build-up, the news outlet reported. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-nuclear-weapons-us-arsenal-ten-times-more-reports-latest-a7994956.html

The Federation of American Scientists and other organizations keep track of these nuclear stockpiles and regularly release updated weapons counts.

Below is a map that shows the best estimates of which countries have nukes and how many they have. http://www.businessinsider.com/nuclear-weapons-stockpiles-world-map-2017-8

Status of World Nuclear Forces
The number of nuclear weapons in the world has declined significantly since the Cold War: down from a peak of approximately 70,300 in 1986 to an estimated 14,900 in early-2017. Government officials often portray that accomplishment as a result of current arms control agreements, but the overwhelming portion of the reduction happened in the 1990s. Moreover, comparing today’s inventory with that of the 1950s is like comparing apples and oranges; today’s forces are vastly more capable. The pace of reduction has slowed significantly. Instead of planning for nuclear disarmament, the nuclear-armed states appear to plan to retain large arsenals for the indefinite future. https://fas.org/issues/nuclear-weapons/status-world-nuclear-forces/

Well, judging by the actions of US diplomats in the last several months, one can conclude that US and NATO has been preparing for set date and time for some sort of large scale invasion. Again. And again, only symbolically.

>embassy closure
>diplomat expulsion
>other sorts of bullshit

>The US failed to issue entry visas for the entire delegation of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces

>The senior Russian senator warned that Russia is capable to arrange a decent response if US leaves the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.

Apparently, current lack of international policy in US (a direct consequence of Trump controversy) has been already exploited by some influential parties with their own separate interests. Weither it is a realistic scenario, or will it be put in action at all, is entirely different question.

Eh, then you pay for them.
Just to do a factory refurbish of an old B61 nuclear bomb (upgrading the fixed air fins for movable ones, exchanging the vacuum tube electronics for a microprocessor board, installing new data plugs, etc.) costs twenty million dollars. If that 750 lb bomb was made of solid gold, it would not cost that much!
An example of a defense contractor turning a simple upgrade job (they do nothing to the actual nuclear weapon within the bomb casing) into a nine billion dollar swindle.

yeah, giving money to the republican party which is in favor of passing more gun control or giving money to the gun rights activists groups who are backing the republicans who want to pass more gun control is really going to help us out.
there is the possibility of a senate filibuster stopping whatever happens, that seems to be the only hope. i'd say keep your money on the sidelines until you see someone worth supporting with it, you might end up feeling foolish giving money you could have otherwise used to drink yourself to death to some fork tongued devil who will turn around and screw you over in a second if it happens to be politically expedient at that moment.
politicians are really the last people who you should be fronting money to

Years ago, I was introduced to these bump-stock attachments in a gun store. "It turns your semi-auto AR-15 into firing like a machine-gun as a legal work-around to the gun laws against full-auto weapons," was the pitch. I replied that shit like this will be used to murder a whole lot of people some day and that will be instrumental in laws getting passed to take guns away from everybody else.
So fuck bump-stocks.

Glove compartment guns?
Colorado has laws that allow me to carry a loaded gun in my glove box, so I did so. This morning, a police officer told me that my car had been broken into along with many other cars down my block. The thieves opened my door somehow and opened my glove compartment and dumped the contents on the seat, but did not take anything. The thieves did not notice the other smaller glove compartment above the main one. In that was my chambered Ruger LC9 9mm pocket pistol. I kept it there because it fit and if was stolen, I would not really miss it (although, if the cops told me that my stolen gun was just used in a triple homicide, that would be troubling).

Colorado allows a person to carry a firearm in a vehicle if its use is for lawful protection of such person or another's person or property. [C.R.S. 18-12-105(2)] Colorado law also allows a person to possess a handgun in a dwelling, place of business, or automobile. https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/csp/colorado-gun-laws

Seems like alot of people use Hi Points for car guns. I remember someone here mentioning way back that they worked at a car auction and most of the guns they found when going through the cars before selling them were Hi Points.

As a former owner I'd say they are pretty reliable. Ugly as sin, heavy as fuck to the point I think it would be excellent to beat the shit out of someone with, and apparently bordering on Nokia levels of indestructible going by Demolition Ranch.

That does seem to be the consensus.
>> No. 110996 ID: 3e843b
The consensus of anyone who has handled them with an open mind atleast. Too many gun snobs will either never give them a chance because they look like Frankenstein's monster's big black cock or act like its a total piece of shit even when they do handle it even if it runs flawlessly.

I mean I can't blame people for thinking the Hi Point is crap just by looks, its like a Deagles short bus cousin. It looks so shitty, like you'd think cheapo Lorcins and Raven Arms pot metal pieces of shit would be better quality. But like a meh girl with a big heavy sweater that makes her like like a fattie, whats underneath makes up for the outside.

While it might not have a slim waist, big ol titties and a mouth that could suck your dick so hard you gain a few inches, its a pretty solid bitch that does a fine job putting bullets towards the general direction of targets reliably while not raping your wallet.

The 1903 is not US Govt stamped and no I would not use a M1908 the same way.

The revolver was not my call, but again cheap reliable and all purchased privately.

Pic related, it is that conversation.

End of the day though, be a big boy about it and do the needful.

This isn't called "immigration", it is "asylum". I would not expect anybody to know what happened 15 years ago in Venezuela, so there:

No government really should keep guns in the hands of dissidents, terrorists and foreign mercenaries, lest such government wouldn't take long to collapse.
