Woke up. Had coffee. Read the news. Logged on here.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

Dropped my daughter at the train station
Worked on a basement being finished
Made a bunch of phone calls
Made a schedule for tomorrow

Gorcery shop - 24 cans of tuna and one loaf of bread.

I had a busy day.

Went to the licencing centre to hand my medical form in so I could renew my driver's licence. Had to have my photo taken. Also paid a lower rate due to my having a concession card.

Went to Aldi to buy drinks and food.

Went and got my hair cut. Two apprentices watched while the hairdresser explained how she was cutting my hair. That was different but I didn't mind.

Took Kayleigh to her doctor appointment. Waited for ages. Went to the chemist with her afterwards.

Drove Kayleigh to the physiotherapist she'll be seeing tomorrow for the first time. Glad it's not me. The chiropractor is enough.

Came home and now it's time to feed the cats.

Dropped my daughter at the train station
Looked at a commercial building I am bidding work on
Met the scrap man and got rid of a pick up truck full of stuff that was unfixable

Grrrr...bunch of damn shooters on a  rooftop wielding assault rifles. Time to get my two best snipers up on another roof, and send in my two fastest runners, after sneaking in up close, to pick them off from just feet away with a combination of a guy with a revolver and AK-47 and another quick little bugger wielding a laser pistol in one hand and an automatic combat shotgun, the first having really good range for a pistol, being quite accurate, damaging enough and taking very little time for him to draw and  fire, the other with less of  a range, but a powerful model thats capable either of single shots, or automatic burst-firing 12-gauge shells, that needless to say makes one hell of a mess in close quarters fights to medium range, and if one gets to sneak within range of an enemy from behind, a flurry of automatic fire is almost certain to tear somebody limb from limb with a single pull of the trigger, sending whats left of a torso flying through the air or slamming into a wall.

I'm either going to have two squad members take up position with scoped rifles on the rooftop to make sure the gunners on the roof top keep their heads down (unless they want them to be blown off of course :P  ) and send in the two fast runners who aren't carrying much weight with the assault rifle and revolver as sidearm  and  the other with a laser pistol sidearm and auto-shotgun, or have one of the ones who would be taking up a sniper  point on the roof across the street let the other close in assault trooper borrow the combat-shotgun she is carrying, since the other bugger does have a shotgun, but its  a pump-action model, rather than one capable of both burst and aimed single shot fire. Still deadly enough up close if you give some bugger a dose  of buckshot to the chest, and not altogether uncommon to be able to put an enemy down in one round if its fired from close range, but given there are at least three of these buggers, and they have full-auto rifles that could mean a lot of damage done by them and  quickly, so I want them down, permanently, at the first pull of the trigger, and in several pieces so I know for sure they aren't going to be getting off any shots at all.

Got up at stupid o'clock. Not by choice, mind.

Getting quite far in my mission in fallout-tactics  (at some little shithole called macomb, providing support for a convoy after the inhabitants killed and/or ate the previous  crew)

Just came  out on top after a close  call, involving a roadblock and two guys hiding behind it, one with an AK-47, not much of a problem since I could outrange, outgun and outshoot him.  The other was more of a problem, since he was carrying a rocket launcher, with a VERY long range, a lot more than I could snipe him from, and to the side in a building a guy with grenades. Guy with the rocket launcher did get one off, missed, and I managed to bring in the long-distance gunners, and have two others run like crazy up towards  him with heads ducked down, got the long range types away from his line of sight, then suddenly popped up and riddled him with shotgun blasts.

Definitely going to keep hold of that rocket launcher though for future use, managed to kill him before he had time to use his second rocket. He won't need it now anywhere, not while leading his new existence as a pavement smear. Bagged a fair lot of 7.62mm rounds as well, plus the other gunner's assault rifle. Now just need to see if I can get into that building and relieve that body of any more grenades it might have on it.

Not a lot. Having a ct scan tomorrow so I'm not allowed to eat anything, which doesn't improve my mood a lot.

Beer doesn't count as food.  Enjoy.

Thanks but I had a feeling they wouldn't have agreed. :laugh:

I hope I don't have to do that scan ever again.

I've had about 3.  Just what the doctor ordered when I have a slight case of claustrophobia.  I keep my eyes shut and constantly lie to myself big time about how long it's been since it started.

Tried to sell a gun that PA had.  Turned out it's rusted and partially broken.  Oh, well.  I'll try to sell it as scrap.
