As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Good Guy With a Gun Stops Bad Guy With a Gun At Illinois School

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/police-off...ry?id=55204700

    Excerpt:

    An Illinois school resource officer stopped an armed teenager at a high school Wednesday morning, according to the local police chief, who applauded the officer for saving "countless" lives.
    When the 19-year-old suspect fired several shots near a gym at Dixon High School, the school resource officer reported the incident to authorities and then confronted the gunman, Dixon police chief Steven Howell said at a news conference.
    When confronted, the suspect -- a former student at Dixon High School -- started running away, and the officer pursued him, Howell said. The suspect shot several rounds at the officer, and the officer then returned fire, hitting the gunman, the chief added.

    The suspect was taken into custody with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

    The suspect was identified on Wednesday evening as Matthew A. Milby, according to Illinois State Police. He faces three charges of aggravated discharge of a firearm.
    Milby is currently under surveillance at a hospital and will be taken to jail when he is discharged, state police said.

    No students or staff were injured but the high school and all other schools in the district were placed on lockdown, Dixon City Manager Danny Langloss said in a statement.
    I know the national media claimed this sort of happening was disproven, but strangely, it keeps happening.

      Vibise assures us this sort of thing doesn't happen so surely this is a figment of our imaginations.

        Of course things like this happen.

        But things like this also happen:
        https://www.vox.com/2018/3/14/171200...ia-gun-control

        The question is: what results in less innocent deaths?

        More than anecdotal evidence such as these events is needed to make a rational judgement.

          I wonder why we haven't heard this on the news? It wouldn't have anything to with the fact that this doesn't fit the left agenda would it?

            Was Vox arguing for removing all armed security from all current venues, airports, etc.?

            Including armed security for gun control marches?

                are you suggesting there are people opposed to trained security guards?

                  It was all over the news. It just wasn't the biggest story.

                  Right-wingers seem to crave "news" that is limited to stories that support their silly narrative. There is plenty of that out there for you.

                    Liberals are.

                    And when it comes to schools, liberals appear to make arguments that could be applied to all guards at all venues.

                      If you people cared so much for kids like you claim I would think it would be a huge story but you and I both know you people don't give a s hit about kids

                        Why does this sound like a "Man bites dog" story? A rather strange oddity?

                        And don't try to tell me that the media ignores it. Just DON'T. If it were a common thing, Fox would be giving stories like this a regular 30 second treatment EVERY day.

                          I never said that.

                          In fact I applauded one such incident, at a Waffle House, in which the unarmed James Shaw, Jr disarmed a man shooting at people. This act of heroism was completely ignored by Trump, who had earlier said that if he were in such a situation he would jump the shooter with only his hands as weapons. Shaw's heroism was also ignored by the NRA.

                            I believe anyone who moves to stop a murderer in the act is a hero, whether armed or not. If Americans were disarmed, however, there would be much less reason to expect involvement from citizens in attempts to stop a murderer in the act.

                              Trained security guards certainly have a place, but are usually no match for surprise attacks. We need to address root causes, including the indiscriminate proliferation of ever more powerful deadly weapons, not push for bandaid "solutions".
