    I have translated a letter from Mike, Deeply Entrenched in Oregon City to Mike Malloy on his radio show on December 25th.  It is worth the read.

    Dear Mike,

    The death rate in Romper Room America due directly to the placement and use of Claymore Anti Personnel Mines used as a defensive weapon, ZERO.

    The death rate in Romper Room America due to the use of RPG’s used as a defensive weapon, ZERO.

    The death rate in Romper Room America due to the use of 40 Millimeter grenade launchers used as a defensive weapon, ZERO.

    The death rate in Romper Room America due to the use of 120 Millimeter mortars used as a defensive weapon, ZERO.

    You can continue this list from hand grenades to thermo nuclear bombs, and the answer in most cases will all be ZERO.  Common gnomes are not allowed to possess these weapons because they lack the skills, training, storage facilities, but most of all the need.

    I served 9 years in the Navy Mike, and all those years I was qualified to shoot the 12 gauge, the 45 caliber, and the M14.  I never possessed a weapon until I had documented proof that I had completed the required training & I was either on watch at a range or participating in a security alert.

    I’ve gone out into the woods to plink rounds all for fun & left ever having the Blank scared out of me by nimrods shooting AR’s AK’s & SKS’s without any safety considerations and no control of their weapons.

    So, for all those gun totting wanna be heroes, ask yourself why the Military severely restricts who can carry a weapon and where.  How come military members have to keep on participating and re-qualifying each and every year?  Sometimes, more often, to be able to carry a fire arm.

    If you NRA Asswipes, can muster the courage to answer all these questions, then by all means put cleaning tubes at the head of each classroom so your teacher can clear the chamber.  Pack your kids in body armor and teach the little tikes to dig trenches, fill sand bags and prepare for the worst.  Because if you can carry an AK47 without a restriction, then I say open the Amory and let them have it all.  I’m moving to Antarctica.  I hear its quite Balmy.

    Mike,
    Deeply Entrenched in Oregon City
