    Anyone watch the tv show "Revolution " last night?
    In one scene the "militia" had a bunch of civilians trapped in a building and were going to wipe them out but the good guys had 1 bolt action rifle and the shooter kept picking off the bad guys. The leader of the militia said to one of his men "thats why cilvilians arent allow to have firearms",
    Kind of stuck a chord with me.

    Personally, i make it a point to know some people who aren't entirely law-abiding, just in case the law goes toooo far. I don't want or need a hot gun, but it wouldn't be hard to find one.

    I guess "criminals" wouldn't really be "civilians" since they have chosen sides.

    I believe he meant because he was wasting his ammunition. I don't think anyone reloads their own in the show.

    I understand your point though.

    That line got my attention, quick.
    I do enjoy the show though, only one problem.


    All the "heroes" have is a crossbow and a couple a swords between them.
    When they have killed "militia" there are literally dozens of guns layin around.
    Pick one up dammit!!! I mean really it 's common sense!

    In the first show one of the militia shot a guy because he had a killed a deer with a shotgun. His line was" A civilian having a firearm is punishable by death".

    [wonders if bloomerburg was the inspiration for the militia leader character?]

    The show wasn't what I expected it to be but it is kind of entertaining. Most of the bad guys that are armed have black powder rifles but there are a few center fire pistols and rifles around too.
    It is set about 15 yrs after the lights go out. Society has pretty much collapsed and the warlords have taken over.
    Makes you want to check your ammo supply tho.

    Revolution has yet to win me over with some degree of plausibility.
    The main characters appear to be the progeny of the Brady Bunch.
    It's just flat and one-dimensional for me. But then that's only my opinion.

    I sort of felt the same way after the first episode, but the second two are starting to win me over. I do agree it's a bit implausible but hey, it's TV, you have to suspend disbelief and enjoy the entertainment.

    The rebels have not found my stash yet. I kind of like it. Not great, yet. Not bad. Entertaining.

    The old adage "When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns" stikes a chord. The Militia is like an outlaw gang...they have the guns.

    Does anyone else think that the captain looked like a certain someone?

    If you happen to have Time Warner, the first three or four episodes are on demand. My girlfriend and I have been jumping back and forth between Revolution and Sons of Anarchy on any rare night that our schedules line up.

    Did she see the news about the actor who portrayed "Half Sack" killing some old lady and her cat before taking a dive from the third floor onto pavement?

    I think he may have been a bear sympathizer.
