7.62x51mm comparison to .308 (civilian)

.308 vs. 7.62x51

380 vs. 7.62x51


Basically .308 (yes the civilian version) is loaded a bit hotter than the military version, but the NATO case is thicker.

Virginia Gun Legislation as of Mar 21 2015



Virginia: Two Pro-Gun Bills Signed into Law, Many Still Need Your Active Help

This week, the following two NRA-supported pro-gun bills were signed into law by Governor Terry McAuliffe (D):
House Bill 1666: Sponsored by pro-gun Delegate Buddy Fowler (R-55), HB 1666 will allow former Virginia residents to petition to have their gun rights restored in the same manner as residents. HB 1666 takes effect on July 1, 2015.  
Senate Bill 1191: Sponsored by Senator Tommy Norment (R-3), SB 1191 will amend the felony charge for having a firearm on school property to require that the person must have knowingly possessed the firearm, ensuring that inadvertent violations do not result in a felony.  SB 1191 takes effect on July 1, 2015.
However, the following important pro-gun bills have still not received action by the Governor.  Please call and email Governor McAuliffe today and urge him to sign the following bills into law before the Sunday, March 29th signing deadline. 
Senate Bill 838: Sponsored by Senator Kenneth Alexander (D-5), SB 838 would extend state resident hunting and fishing licenses to the dependents of members of the armed forces who are stationed in Virginia.  Sent to Governor McAuliffe on February 25, pending action.
Senate Bill 848: Sponsored by pro-gun Senator Bill Stanley (R-20), SB 848 would establish a marksmanship award to recognize the top 20 competitors in each of the rifle and pistol Excellence-in-Competition matches conducted annually at the Virginia State Championships.  Sent to Governor McAuliffe on February 24, pending action. 
Senate Bill 948: Sponsored by pro-gun Senator Richard Stuart (R-28), SB 948 would prohibit the sharing of information on concealed handgun permit holders with law enforcement in states that do not have reciprocity agreements with Virginia.  This prohibits states hostile to gun ownership from going on fishing expeditions and using this information as an excuse to harass law-abiding Virginia permit holders while they are traveling out of state.  Sent to Governor McAuliffe on February 24, pending action.
Senate Bill 1137: Sponsored by pro-gun Senator Tom Garrett (R-22), SB 1137 would prohibit local ordinances that ban concealed carry permit holders from transporting a loaded rifle or shotgun, eliminating a patchwork of inconsistent laws that are unnecessarily confusing for law-abiding citizens.  Sent to Governor McAuliffe on February 26, pending action.
House Bill 2009: Sponsored by pro-gun Delegate Dave LaRock (R-33), HB 2009 would require that when certification of a chief law enforcement officer is required by federal law for transfer of a firearm as defined in the National Firearms Act, such certification must be provided within 60 days if the applicant is not prohibited by law from receiving the firearm.  The reforms in this bill would benefit Virginia’s law-abiding firearm owners by ensuring the process to obtain certain federally-regulated firearms, already legal in Virginia, remains fair, fact-based and objective.  Sent to Governor McAuliffe on March 10, pending action.
House Bill 2286: Sponsored by pro-gun Delegate Michael Webert (R-18), HB 2286 makes it possible for individuals who had their rights fully restored in other states to possess firearms in Virginia.  Under current case law, people with felony convictions whose rights were restored by those states, are nonetheless prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition in Virginia. House Bill 2286 was passed by a 24 to 16 vote in the Senate.  Sent to Governor McAuliffe on March 10, pending action.
Governor McAuliffe’s office can be reached at 804-786-2211 or by email here.

Amnesty Executive Order and your thoughts

Here are my thoughts on the Amnesty Executive Order that Obama felt he had the power to do.

Is the Amnesty Bill another way for our very own government to outsource American jobs? Part of the Executive Order (EO) is to make illegal aliens legal, and also allow them jobs (also gives them the right to vote). Why would Obama pass a bill to give jobs to illegals when he has speeches stating that we need to get American's back to work. I guess that by making illegals legal, if you will, he is essentially getting "Americans" back to work and fulfilling his promise, but not to the citizens who were here first and voted him into office. The  money that is used to keep this new EO going Congress can't actually touch since it comes from the fees from those costs provided by those immigrants coming here legally, which is "safe" from Congress's purse strings.   With the Amnesty EO using that money to sustain itself, if those immigrants coming here legally see that they were basically crapped on and decide to stop paying for their legal process, wouldn't the money not coming into the system in essence defund the bill on it's own?  In other words, those trying to come here legally just say screw it and no more money comes in, putting Obama in a position that will not let him enforce that EO.

What do you all think?

Pres Obama's Willful Disregards For The American Constitution Regarding Immigration.

For being a Constitutional Law professor, it seems that this current president does what he wants when he wants. When does Congress have to do what the president says?  Since when does the president dictate to Congress that a law needs to be created? He said before he was elected the 1st time, he would fundamentally change our country if elected, boy is he doing it!!!

I'm all for immigration, as long as it is done legally. What the president did was basically spit in the faces of those who have been working hard and patiently to come to this country legally. It's an affront to those people, and to those who are citizens; whether they were legally born here or went through the mountains of paperwork.  The next question to ask is...why? Why did he feel that he has the right to create an Executive Order (EO) to grant illegals amnesty. If they can't follow the law before they are citizens what makes this president think they will follow the law after the fact? What laws can we citizens break? I bet if none of us paid taxes, I bet he would spend all the money the IRS required to come after all of us, but yet he cuts the budget for our Border agents.

This president is fundamentally changing this country, to a more tyrannical government that has more and more control over our daily lives. You have those that are pro-choice, pro-gay marriage who all say stay out of my bedroom, but yet they allow the government to interfere with every other aspect of their daily lives.

Presidential Office rules of naturalization











You know I just saw an article on Drudge that stated that the White House battle for the republican party will most likely be between Cruz and Perry. Here is my "thing" against Cruz, he was born in Canada and his dad is Cuban. 

Since we allowed the current President to become just that, he dad was Kenyan remember and a socialist (explains a lot now doesn't it).  I didn't think then and still think now that Obama wasn't eligible for the Office Of President either just as I do with Sen Ted Cruz.  

What does the Constitution say or what was the mindset when the US Constitution was written in regards to being natural born citizen?  Well the Constitution states the following has to be met to become President:

From http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2840767/posts

Article II, section 1, pa. 5: "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."

What was our founding fathers' mindset when they made that statement in the Constitution? Remember back in those days, the monarchy married those from other countries, who would be more inclined to "hook" up their country the best way they know how no matter if it hurt the citizens or whatever in the country they were ruling over. This is just my opinion on why our Founding Fathers made sure that "natural born" was added into the guidelines of becoming President.  Do I think that Obama meets these requirements? In a way yes, and in a way no. I believe that both parents should be citizens, therefore, anyone who gets put into that prestigious office has no ties to any other country, and this is why I feel that Obama doesn't meet the requirements. His day is Kenyan, and I wonder where his allegiances lie? This is just my opinion.
