we hunt. we hunt huge. some of the best hunting in North America for sure.

We have no long gun registry.

They just want to take away the semi auto "fun guns" because of the sharp spike in gun related gang violence and shootings in the major metropolis'. You know, the guns that aren't purchased legally.

Ya, that's what it's packaged as. Take law-abiding citizens hobby guns away from them because of gun crime in the streets. lol. I'm not mistyping, you're reading this right. The scarier part of it is that there are actual yuppies out there who passively agree that this is a good idea and makes sense.

So my AR15 and other semi-auto's are potentially on the Liberal agenda's chopping block (will cost over 1 billion in taxation) for virtue signalling. Thing is, anyone with a 75 IQ should be able to say, "Hey, wait a minute. . . but the guns owned by law-abiding citizens haven't caused one crime. . . more over it's illegal hand guns being used. Not semi-auto rifles and carbines". Ya, no ****, because gangsters cant conceal the latter. So what IS the underlying agenda here then? Simply ignorant virtue signalling or other?

Ah man. i gotta get off this topic. It drives me insane. k, done.


EDIT: k, last touch. Want to really laugh? Trudeau and his Liberals have stated they refuse to pass hand gun bans. lol. *sigh* none of it makes any sense!

My 2007 JK has about 120,000 miles on it. Just before Christmas I ran out of gas at night (my daughters, both home from college, had been joyriding it around town getting LOTS of attention earlier in the day) and AAA came with my two free gallons of gas. Unfortunately, the moron did not realize that the two gallons he put into my tank were diesel, not regular unleaded. Neither did I.

Now the story gets interesting.

The vehicle started, but 1/4 mile away it died. The same AAA contractor towed me to my mechanic. The next day I heard that my fuel pump had failed. The following day I heard that the pump had been replaced, and that the fuel system was basically pure diesel, which had caused the fuel pump to fail. My mechanic had tried to start and drive the vehicle a number of times after replacing the fuel pump, and it didn't start, and that's when he decided to check the fuel itself and detected the diesel. Meaning, diesel ran through the new fuel pump as well. Then he flushed the fuel system, put in regular unleaded, and the car seemed to work OK.

Fine. I paid the mechanic and filed a claim with AAA for about $1,000.

I took the jeep on a run for about 120 miles with no performance issues a couple days later.

A couple days after that, I left on another day trip but my engine began making a very metallic knocking going up a grade. I called AAA again and got towed 75 miles to my special jeep mechanic because I wondered if this was still an aftershock from the diesel thing. A couple days later this second mechanic told me three of my rods were destroyed and that he smelled diesel fuel in the oil that he drained into the pan. How did diesel get in the lubrication system, I asked. He said that diesel won't burn in the carburetor but runs down the walls and seeps through some seal into the lube system.

Why did it take a week and over 200 miles of driving to finally damage my engine, I asked him. He said diesel has no lubrication properties, so it takes a little time (e.g., a few days and 200 miles) for the degradation in the engine to finally take hold. That's why the engine didn't fail immediately after I picked it up from the first mechanic.

But then, this specialized mechanic says that it is possible that my engine was ready to fail already, and the diesel just put it over the edge. I want to update my claim to AAA for both the fuel pump and a rebuilt engine (now a total of $8500), but the mechanic is unwilling to openly state that "diesel caused the engine failure."

So here are my questions:

1) Do 2007 JK engines (V-8, 6 cylinder) fail as early as 120,000 miles or can they be counted on to last a lot longer?

2) Was my first mechanic responsible for the engine failure, because he ran diesel through the new fuel pump and did not know about that other situation, where diesel can seep into the lube system?

3) The second mechanic said that diesel seeps into the lube system from the carburetor. Is this a high probability occurrence? How could this have happened if the fuel system had been cleaned of diesel by the first mechanic? Does it take a lot of diesel to ruin lube in the engine, or just a little?

4) How long does it take for an engine to fail after it gets some contaminant (like diesel) into the lube system? A day and a few miles? Or a week and 200 miles?

5) I do not believe in coincidences. So if the engine failed a couple hundred miles after flushing the fuel system, and the oil smelled like diesel, then the damn engine failed because of the diesel, and not because it was already on the point of failure. Is that the right conclusion?

6) Has anyone on [another forum] lived through this experience? How did it come out?

Thanks for any and all replies.

They rush people in from the most violent places on Earth... permanently, but won't let me visit some National Parks for a few weeks.
It's the Liberal plan to secure leadership. Throw away 48,000 arrest warrants for illegal immigrants wss the first thing Trudeau did after losing the last election but still staying in power under a minority government. Why?

Seems counterproductive...unless there is an underlying agenda. Invite people here from everywhere, open door... criminals, whatever. Give them food, a nice newly built home, allowance which they dont have to start paying back until they get a job (ya, you read that right... wheres the incentive to get a job?). Because in 5 years time, or 3 years expedited if they choose to settle in Newfieland ...they'll have citizenship.... who the hell do you think they'll vote for?

Smart political move. Dumb sustainability move.

So, let's just get ahead of getting guns away from our law abiding tax paying citizens before the uproar.

Canada is well passed that. Its sad. I wrote a pretty long rant in this message but decided it was best to erase it.

Suffice it to say that you should still be grateful. You do NOT have any idea of how bad it can get. You have a VERY important roadblock in place right now... I hope you're wise enough to see through the cracks, align yourselves accordingly and keep it in place.
I'm going to Glacier on a vacation this summer. I was going to go to Banff but I'm not allowed in Canada. I had a DUI 10 years ago. Not a person killing crash, just a regular pulled over "****, this is going to cost ten grand" DUI.
Meanwhile Canada is bringing in pennyless welfare criminal riff raff from another continent to live permanently. I was just going to leave a pile of USD and go home after a couple weeks.

Jordan Peterson is one of my favorite speakers.

I guess I could probably turn my locker storage unit into an ammo re-loading work station. . . But, here in Canada I might be put on a list.
