I already cancelled my automatic subscription to their out of market games. Fuck them.

She’s probably going to have legal problems regardless. A MD carry permit is next to impossible to obtain. I’m guessing she doesn’t have one. Merely having that gun inside the cabin is a crime in MD without a permit.

If you haven’t had Qdoba’s breakfast burritos, you’re wrong.

My only regret is not buying more yesterday at 2.30 per share.

Wait so does that make this a pistol build? You can’t have a vertical grip on a pistol build according to ATF.

Did you put a pistol brace on a rifle?

Speaking of critical thinking; perception is not reality. Your subjective experience of police is not everyone’s objective reality. There are plenty of shitbag cops out there. I was hit and run by a drunk driving illegal in Montgomery County, Maryland a few years ago on New Years morning. I called the cops while chasing him. He pulls into a 7-11 to down some coffee and chew gum. Police show up momentarily after we pulled over and he had just explained he didn’t have insurance paperwork. He also invited me to go to his house and he’d give it to me. Yeah right, guy. Miraculously, he has insurance paperwork when the police arrive. I get it from them. They send him home in a cab after I hear them explain to him they think that he’s had too much to drink.

This all happened before I became a lawyer. So as a new lawyer, I can tell you that nobody should ever trust the police to do the right thing. They owe you no duty of care so don’t expect any from them. Give them credit when they do it, of course, but you should never expect it.

We aren’t doing PRTs due to COVID. I think October just got cancelled as well.

This is Navy, not Coast Guard. This fat body is still a shitbag regardless of the service.

You’re correct. Geneva applies to military personnel engaged in foreign conflicts.

I bought two brand new redskins shirts last week just to piss off the shitlibs ups here in NOVA. I’m not even a skins fan. I have to deal with the lions every year. But thankfully, the NFL has done enough to piss me off to the extent that I don’t even care about what happens anymore. It’s a huge timesaver not watching those games.

This is not true at all. Many states allow for non-ABA students to sit for the bar. Check the NCBE website. California has been doing it for decades. Virginia doesn't even require law school. You can still do an apprenticeship there.

Well it is. Prosecution still must show the elements of a crime are met. But if an affirmative defense is available and proven, the defendant did not act with criminal intent, also known as the mens rea element of a crime.

You don't even realize you've just proven my point. They don't know, which is why they can't shoot them. Anybody MUST know there is an imminent threat of death or serious bodily injury to either their person or someone else's. The standard does not change just because you're a police officer.

You want to be on the jury because you want the police officer to get off. You cannot possibly have all the facts because the evidentiary record has not even been established yet. Yet, you have pre-judged the police officer to be innocent. Hence the term, prejudiced. That is exactly why you do not belong on this jury. Also, you know jail and prison are different things, right? People with DUIs go to jail. Any misdemeanor offense=jail. Are you implying that any misdemeanor arrestee or convict that escapes jail, that the police should have free rein to open fire on them?

The article doesn't have the facts. That's why I said if that person was unarmed, you can't just shoot them as they flee. You'd have to know this person to be extremely violent, maybe a former super max inmate, to be able to shoot them unarmed and fleeing.

Notice I said if they were running away UNARMED. Being armed combined with fleeing from criminal activity creates the reasonable belief that the person fleeing is a danger to your life or a threat to someone else's.

I'm just going to go ahead and say this as a new lawyer: you are exactly the person that should not be on a jury. Your impartiality is so clear on its face, I didn't need to read the article. However, I did. And let me explain something to you. You can't shoot someone that's fleeing unless you believe they are an imminent threat to your life(how? they're fleeing YOU) or may cause someone great bodily harm. The article mentions they don't even know why the police began shooting. IF(with emphasis) the man was simply running away unarmed, a depraved heart murder charge is entirely appropriate. What that cop did would be nothing more than an extrajudicial killing the redcoats would be proud of. I am beyond sick of trigger happy police. These are the rotten apples that need to be weeded out of police forces. The police are not your friend and they owe you no duty of care. Support them when they do what is right and call them out when they do wrong just like any other government agency.

My point is that Trump did not chose a good SECDEF, which leads me to believe he wouldn't be able to chose good officers to replace our current flag officers. And my last statement was the solution I'm recommending. Relieve all of them and force them to retire. They're destroying the military with their PC bullshit. And where do you see me "blaming him for everything?" Try being objective every once in a while. The man isn't flawless. I'm tired of serving in this PC environment where I'm now apparently a white supremacist. He has the power to change this and he should.

I'll say it again. Trump has been too soft with the military. He should have known better that these flag officers were worthless liberals. Every single one of the flag officers should have been relieved and replaced with who he wanted in there. Then again, he also selected Mattis and Mattis is a disgrace.

you need to get a carry permit and a handgun. I never leave home without it.
