Ammo For Sale

And another thing

When in Reno a few years back, I checked into a hotel. I had with me an AK, a couple of AR-15s, and a few handguns. I had 1,000 rounds of ammo for the AK. Another 500 for the AR and I planned on buying pistol ammo at the local gun store. And it was obvious they were guns because they were in gun cases. And no one on the hotel staff cared one whit. Went straight to my room with no problem.

Suddenly, people think taking guns in to a hotel should be illegal or regulated or something. Why? People do travel to go shooting. I have. I will again.

    I had this exact same thought when I was reading all these articles about how they are screening hotel guests for guns. What if you’re in town for a machine gun shoot or a silencer shoot or something? Those are almost always big events that you have to travel to reach. And it makes sense that you would stay in a hotel because someone who can afford a machine gun can afford to stay in a hotel.

    If hotels want to fuck themselves over and usher in the age of airbnb, hassling gun owners should be at the top of their agenda.

    hassling wealthy gun owners, no less.

    With Gunsite nearby, if you fly in or out of Phoenix with firearms in your luggage without hassle. I checked into a hotel once and the bellman asked what I had in the hard case, I said an electric piano and I thought my wife was going to fall over she laughed so hard.

    Not if they have anything to say about it. Never let a crisis go to waste, and all that. What better kill all the really good gun schools than to make it illegal to bring guns with you.

    What about hunting? Staying in a motel?

    “Suddenly, people think taking guns in to a hotel should be illegal or regulated or something. Why?”

    Because the continuing emergence of the glorious police state must be served. Then “We” can “Get Things Done”.

    The so-called conservative pundits will be on board with it too. “Law and Order” don’t you know. “Nothing is more important than Law and Order, so enough of your crazy liberty talk; people are dying.”

    This is how liberty dies. With a whimper or with thunderous applause, with our reluctant, tacit appeasement or with our enthusiastic approval, either way it dies.

    I forgot which channel I was watching but the reporter was walking the shooters route from check in to the crime scene. And the reporter pointed out the “No Guns” sign and stated that the shooter walked right past it. I couldn’t tell if the reporter was pointing out the hypocrisy or if the reporter thought the sign’s magical powers had failed.

    There is a strong correlation between bad things happening, and reporters being in hotels. We need a 10-year moratorium of reporters being able to cross state lines or check into hotels.

    Isn’t the annual shot show in las vegas? I’ve travelled to Knob Creek for machine gun shoots. It would be down right irresponsible of me to leave guns unattended in my car overnight.

    So if someone offs a few “People Like Us” with a lump of Himalayan Halite will there be a ban on “A Salt Rocks”?

    I seem to recall that Nevada is a fairly popular destination for hunting things like deer and antelope.

    The shooter’s chosen location is no reason to infringe the rights of other law abiding firearm owners. So a law gets passed demanding we be searched upon entering a hotel, and banning firearms from the premises. Next time a crazy might shoot from a parking garage. What then?

    The actions of the lawless should not determine the rights of the law-abiding.

  13. Paul Koning Says:

    Mikee — you said it perfectly. What’s going on is that the left doesn’t approve of individuals and individual rights, they only want the collective. You have to be treated as part of the mob, as an interchangeable cog in a vast machine that they control. So the notion that you might be different from a criminal offends their sense of collectivism.

    Can we get a law for not being allowed to check into hotels with guns while being homicidal? I think if we can tackle that one it would be a good start.

  16. Publius Says:

    Where are the guns more secure, in the hotel room where they are supervised and someone will probably wake up in the event of a break-in, or in a vehicle across the parking lot (which anyone can access and you may or may not be able to see through the window)?

    People have gone full retard.

    The Mandalay is a “NO GUN ZONE”? Bright move. Eliminate any potential quick reaction from other renters. Granted, that particular room/hallway would be a bitch, but still, if I heard that sort of shooting from inside my location, I’d be inclined to attempt to stop it, providing I was armed. Not armed? Adios.
