      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

H.F. 237 - what do you think?

Recommended Posts

I am wondering what people think about H.F. 237

I think the main idea is to require that private sales of pistols and assault rifles have to go through an FFL. In watching the hearings I heard a number of people claim that this was an attempt to get gun registration enacted. I guess I don't see how it is any more a gun registration effort than what happens when you buy a gun directly from an FFL. You do the paperwork and that stays with the licensee. He runs a NICS and what happens happens but they don't keep a record. In fact I don't know that they even know what you're buying.

What do you folks think?

Thanks for your time.

If the private sales go through a FFL dealer, what then will the added cost be as they are not going to do the paperwork for nothing.

Maybe I do not have to much of an issue with this but what is it going to help? It will not stop any crooks from getting what they want and will only make it harder or a bit more expensive for the honest Joe.

I would vote no on this as it is not going to stop a darn thing.

This bill has no place in MN state is clearly, a "step" towards registration and limitations of individual rights...It even tells a licensed FFL dealer, how much they can charge for each transfer. I do not believe the State has the right to set a regulation such as this and others included in this bill on a Federal regulated, and licensed firearms dealer or any individual.

It also has some wording in the first paragraph that would not allow any one "under 18" from possesing a firearm unless they are in the direct company of an adult. So, in effect, it now moves the age a person may hunt without the direct supervision of an adult from 14 to 18. Am I reading that correct?

Subdivision 1. Ineligible persons. The following persons shall not be entitled to possess a pistol or semiautomatic military-style assault weapon or, except for clause (1),any other firearm:

(1) a person under the age of 18 years, except that a person under 18 may carry or possess a pistol or semiautomatic military-style assault weapon or other lawful firearm

(i)in the actual presence or under the direct supervision of the person's parent or guardian,

NOPE! I don't like the idea. Where do THEY draw the line. I give my kid a gun. Trade a gun with a friend or family member. Here my gun shop charges $40 per transfer. If my buddy dies and leaves me his guns, then what? He does not have much for family. So it cost me $1200 for me to get something he wants me to have!

Or if I want to trade even up for a gun another buddy has in which we already went though this when we bought the guns the first time, to pay to trade and go through it again is just wrong.

Dont forget, I am sure there is a way they can get some taxes from the sale as well.

Here is what makes no sense. The only people who will abide by these laws are people who are law abiding citizens as I'm sure everyone on this forum is. The last time I checked it is illegal to have or sell certain drugs, and yet we have not exactly won the "war on drugs". Does anyone believe that a drug dealer in Chicago could not get a pound of cocaine anytime they want? Guns will be no different.

Yet there is a TOTAL ban on these drugs and yet they enter our country with ease. The so called assault weapons ban should not even be discussed as they are a sliver of the issue of gun violence. The largest issue is with illegal hand guns in inner cities, period.

All these laws only create hoops for good people who want to follow the current laws. Waste of time...

It'll be wildly successful in hindering gun commerce between law abiding citizens. Won't do $h1t to stop nut jobs from killing innocent people.

What's missing here is the understanding that any decent person will not willfully sell a weapon to someone whom they think is a danger or crooked person. Most law abiding people only sell weapons to people they know and trust like siblings, parents, children, friends, co-workers.

    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
