The NRA has made clear its opposition to any treaty that includes civilian firearms, and continues to note that a majority of the United States Senate stands with American gun owners in opposition to such a treaty. We have led the effort to mobilize opposition to the treaty in Congress, and not only a bipartisan majority of the U.S. Senate, but also 130 House members, have voiced strong opposition to the treaty. Ignoring that reality, U.N. conferees are working to regulate not only civilian small arms, but also ammunition and firearm parts.
Anti-gun treaty proponents continue to mislead the public, claiming the treaty would have no impact on American gun owners. That's a bald-faced lie.
The Conference on the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (U.N. ATT) has broken down and will not report a draft treaty to the member nations.
This is a big victory for American gun owners, and the NRA is being widely credited for killing the U.N. ATT.
For nearly 20 years, the NRA has worked tirelessly to warn American gun owners about the United Nations’ efforts to undermine the constitutional rights of law-abiding American gun owners by putting in place international controls on small arms.
cabinetman: We had a bundle package with AT&T for U-Verse...HD TV, Internet, and residential phone service. The phone alone was about $42/mo. We switched phone service to OOMA, and saved about $36/mo, and kept the same #. Ya have to buy a box to start.

cabinetman: What really irks me is we've had satellite, cable,and they are all the same. Charge for 300 channels and show re-runs, for shows like Raymond, NCIS, Law&Order...the stuff my wife likes. We hardly ever watch any of the three full length movie groups.

cabinetman: Don't give up on the toolbox. Among other things, I'm starting a rehab on my shed.
Mar 12, 2014 6:10:53 GMT -8
cabinetman: But, to do that I have to service my compressor...drain tank, change oil, clean filter, etc.

cabinetman: But, to drain the tank, I have to change out the bottom drain assembly. The petcock is faulty.

cabinetman: My shed is faced with T1-11. I cut 3 panels in height out of a full sheet. I have to run a skil saw horizontally to cut out rotted panels.
Mar 12, 2014 6:15:21 GMT -8
cabinetman: And, I have to sand the panels before I put several coats of paint on them. But in sanding fronts and back to get the loose stuff off, I'll need to blow off the panels before painting...hence...servicing the compressor.
