A-arons Odds news of the week

New Jersey teen Ethan Chaplin suspended from school for pencil gesture. So a teen made a gesture that turned his pencil into a gun.  He was suspended from school and given 5 hours of psych evaluation. Now I have been guilty of making a lot of things into guns, sticks, cardboard tubes, heck even my fingers. Are we getting a little crazy with all these assumptions. What other non-threatening things can we make into fictional weapons? (I once used a cat)

User feedback and user questions

We have a listener in Australia and I wanted to quickly read a note he sent us talking about Australia’s gun control.

Hi mate

Love your podcasts , really look forward to hearing them every week .keep up the good work!!

If you think the guns laws in the U.S suck … Spare a thought for us minions over here in Australia semi autos unless you are a certified professional pest controller ,every firearm has to be redgistered Fromm a bb air rifle to a large calibre centre fire , all firearms have to be stored in an approved rifle safe that has to be inspected by the police regularly ,… Some times un announced . All ammo to be stored in an approve ammo safe or strong box ,.you can only purchase ammo that you have a fire arm redgistered in that calibre, every time you buy gun powder it gets logged into a data base with your licence details………all in the name of public safety …….yeah right,.????

All because of our last Mass shooting back in 1996,,, all these draconian laws we’re put into place …and in the mean time Middle Eastern crime gangs our shooting up our streets in south Western Sydney on a near daily occurance .,with there illegal semi auto assault rifles and handguns …… And if buy some chance any of these oxygen thieves get apprehended ,,,they are lucky to ever receive a custodial sentence ,

But ,, if a licensed law abiding firearms owner gets caught with any loose rounds of ammo or not properly securing a firearm ….you would receive a massive fine ,in excess of thousands of dollars and get your rifles confiscated and licences susspended …….. What a f…ing joke ,!!!!! Man listening to all the firearms that you can get over there leaves us in awe !!! Keep up the great work

    Hello everyone, I love
    the show! It funny and you all seems to work together well. Thanks for taking the time
    to provide this type of content. I’ll get you an iTunes review soon.
    Two quick
    1) I live in WA State,
    and I know the SBR bill has passed the house and senate, but has the governor
    signed it into law yet?
    2) I really like the
    looks of the Dez tactical AR rifles, but other that being cool looking, and being made in
    America probably with lots of TLC, is there anything really innovative about it, or is it
    just another AR rifle?
    Thanks again, and keep up the good work!

    tuska1 The reason I like DEZ so much is because they actually make their barrels out of 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium, instead of cheaper barrels that are made of 4140. Not to mention taking care when making a barrel and it not ending up like a beaver chewed his way down the bore and you ended up with rifling. It makes a big difference

    LOL the beaver part made me laugh.
    I heard the show a while back when you all were talking about them.  I appreciate your thoughts on the rifle. Given
    yours and a few other people’s recommendation, and the prices they offer, I think I will look into
    his AR-10 when they come out.
    Thanks for the reply.

    tuska1  Last I checked there were some issues because the geniuses who wrote the bills forgot to write in the part about allowing people to manufacture their own sbr components instead of having to purchase a whole unit (only able to buy an upper or full ak sbr, etc), so they’re trying to fix the bill to make self manufacturing legal with ATF approval.
