Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Quoting 
Why do you come to a trading forum and then not talk about trading but only shout about guns?

Fair enough.


Quoting 
What is happening up in Alberta right now gives us some important clues about what we can expect to happen shortly in our own communities.

First of all, we are going to see large numbers of people start to lose their jobs just like we saw back in 2008. And because 62 percent of the country is living paycheck to paycheck, that means that most people do not have a cushion to fall back upon. Just like in 2008, millions upon millions of Americans will go from living a very comfortable middle class lifestyle to facing hard times and desperation very, very rapidly.

As fear and poverty spread, people will become desperate, and desperate people do desperate things.

Some will decide that their lives are no longer worth living and will turn to suicide. Others will turn to drugs, alcohol or pills. When things get tough, addictive behavior tends to rise, and this time around will probably be no exception.

Other Americans will turn to crime and violent behavior in their desperation. Just like we are seeing in Canada right now, home invasions, bank robberies and other forms of violent crime will increase.

This is supposed to be happening in Alberta, Canada right now.

I'm not saying it will happen here.

Because the DOOMERS have been wrong too many times.

But it COULD.

So, in the MEANTIME.....

KEEP YOUR GUNS, BOYS.....and GIRLS TOO!

I am not surprised that Obama lied today during his speech. I am just surprised that no news agencies have fact checked his claims. No a felon cannot buy a gun online. When you purchase firearms online they are shipped to a licensed firearm dealer where you have to pass a background check before you can pick the gun up.

He claims he's concerned about "violent felons".


Quoting

But he released 6,000 felons from Federal Prison.

Most of whom were drug dealers.

Drug dealing and gangbangers are the main cause of "gun violence" in his home town of Chicago.

But you never hear him coming out strongly against drug dealing or gangbangers.

Edit: Also the derogatory term should be "gun crime" not "gun violence."

Because "gun violence" by law abiding citizens is the best antidote to "gun crime" by criminals and terrorists.

Another Islamic terrorist attack in Philadelphia.

And the guy admitted it.


Quoting 
Philadelphia cop shooting

Police officials said Friday that Archer, who was wearing a long-sleeved white tunic over dark pants during the attack, confessed to the shooting and said he did it "in the name of Islam."

"I follow Allah. I pledge my allegiance to the Islamic State, and that's why I did what I did," Archer told police investigators, according to Homicide Capt. James Clark.

Philadelphia cop shooting suspect charged; FBI probes trips

But NOT according to the Democrat Mayor of Philadelphia.


Quoting 
Mayor Jim Kenney played down the Islam connection, calling Archer "a criminal with a stolen gun who tried to kill one of our officers."

"It has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith," Kenney said.

That has got to be one of the most asinine and stupid statements ever made.

Either that or the Mayor is a moron.

This guy said it best.

I know better than to get in a guns talk but I can´t sleep.

Regarding regulation at shows or the internet, it seems pretty pointless, its totally pointless...

Last year I was at a trader conference in Florida on my way elsewhere. I wandered down to a small poorly attended gunshow in a hotel conference room. I was not asked for ID. A new model of an old familiar caught my attention and I had to pick it up and look see.

I told the man (store owning dealer) I was not American so could not buy it (not that I had any intention) assuming the implication of tourist was obvious. He immediately just offered to have his brother sell me the gun + exciting array of .50 shells, no questions asked for cash outside the room. He did not show any interest in why I needed a Barrett M107A1 while asking if I had the cash today. I had chatted about being at the trader conference and its an expensive weapon...

I doubt I need to explain to people on this thread what a M107A1 can do, simply that entire bus queues are more easy prey than messing about with namby pamby ARs around the office.

Perhaps proof of 3rd party liability insurance could play a role but with gun dealers that nakedly greedy (righteous defender of constitution my ass) and outrageously behaved... It has nothing to do with reasonable personal self defence selling that class of weapon to anyone outside the military.

I know it may seem naive but frankly I was jaw dropped at the lunacy of it in real life.

Rory from Medellin
I know it may seem naive but frankly I was jaw dropped at the lunacy of it in real life.

An attempted criminal trying to buy an illegal automatic rifle from another criminal.

That's a great example of why gun control only effects law abiding citizens.

Also, I am leery of anybody from Medellin, Colombia (the narco-terrorist capital of the world) complaining about "lunacy" in America!


Quoting 
Medellín was once known as the most violent city in the world, a result of an urban war set off by the drug cartels at the end of the 1980s. As the home of the Medellín Cartel funded by Pablo Escobar, the city was victim of the terror caused by the war between the organization headed by Escobar, and competing organizations such as "El Cartel del Valle". However, after the death of Escobar, crime rates in the city have decreased dramatically.

Throughout the rest of the 1990s crime rates remained relatively high, although gradually declining from the worst years. In October 2002, President Álvaro Uribe ordered the military to carry out "Operation Orion," whose objective was to disband the urban militias of the FARC and the AUC. Between 2003 and 2006 the demobilization of the remaining urban militias of the AUC was completed, with more than 3,000 armed men giving up their weapons.

Nonetheless after the disbanding of the main paramilitary groups, many members of such organizations have been known to have reorganized into criminal bands known commonly as Aguilas Negras. These groups have gained notoriety in Medellín for calling upon curfews for the underage population, and have been known to distribute fliers announcing the social cleansing of prostitutes, drug addicts, and alcoholics. The extradition of paramilitary leader Don Berna appears to have sparked a crime wave with a sharp increase in killings.
