    Some anti-violence activists and even a few weapons-school officials say that somebody -- a government agency or an industry association -- ought to set out rules for acceptable training and students.

    Yea well some of these bed wetter's and hand wringers consider a spork dangerous , I don't look for much in the way of control legislation on firearms instruction myself

    That's a great quote. I love it.

    What could be wrong with training for self defense? Or even 2 man teams- you and the spouse need to get your way out of <insert bad situation here>? Oh, I forgot, the police will do it for you and protect you... Sorry, I'll take responsibility for my own protection, thank you very much

    It's in the Washington Compost aka Pravda on the Potomoc one of the three most leftist papers in the US and top 10 in the world. What did you expect. They have been working diligently towards a nanny state for decades.

    As for standards for training? No I don't think so. More government regulation is not the answer.

    Scott,
    So true, but remember the congressanimals take everything there as truth, (which is Pravda in Russian, if I'm correct). I remember when the movie "The Day After Tomorrow" came out, several pieces of legislation was introduced based entirely on the movie.

    It's the Washington Post. All guns are evil. Criminals are all just misunderstood and need some group hug therapy.

    Naturally, they are wetting the bed over training. They don't want you to have those scary guns at all, much less know how to use them.

    QK, I noticed your sporks were still sealed and in mint condition. What would one have to give for one of your mint conditioned, non combat used, spork ??
    One shot. One kill.

    Primary Carry - Taurus PT-111 Mil Pro 9mm DAO with 12 + 1 in the pipe. Holstered in a Brigade OWB M2.

    Secondary Weapon - Taurus PT1911 5" 45acp SA with 8+1. Holstered in a Kydex paddle.

    It could be a straw purchase of a 'spork' or it could actually be a 'straw'.

    Though, I suspect an actual 'straw' would be protected by ol' Bloomy because such items are used in a subcultural community which goes "shrimping" (a truly disgusting sexual-type act).

    Direct on the alternative uses of straws.

    I suspect he supports some straws, but "assault" straws would still be banned. A straw is in "assault" straw if it possesses an articulated area (a so-called "bendy" straw) or if it has two or more of the following features:

    - fixed curvature
    - transparent construction
    - length > 7 inches
    - bore larger than .2 inches
    - multiple colors, or a color stripe
