  •  Sometimes a real man has to be brave enough (0+ / 0-)

    to stand up to the "trigger happy" punks. As opposed to joining them.

    You can't make this stuff up.

      i'd like to announce my presence with authority, with the sound of a shotgun shell being chambered. Even trigger happy punks know what that sound means.

      I suspect that those pucks will be more responsive to my firepower than my personal bravery.

      Going up against armed people while un-armed is not brave, it is foolish.

      and if i'm not home, my wife is not a real man.

    •  Ah, the Tiananmen Square fantasy. (2+ / 0-)

      •  No, actually it's not a fantasy. It's reality. (0+ / 0-)

        We have lots of problems in our society. We have lots of challenges to civilization, around the world. Guns are rarely a solution to any problem. Every day, day in and day out, someone reaches the end of their rope and commits murder/suicide, takes hostages, sprays bullets at a crowd. Most of these guns were not purchased because the person was planning to reach the end of their rope, go psychotic, fail in life, etc. Most of those guns were purchased because the individual had fear and loathing pumped into his head by the gun industry and the entertainment industry.
        I repeat. In reality, guns are not a solution to any of our many, many problems.
