      that every day. I'm generalizing a bit, but it's pretty close to the truth.

      That's what gun ownership is all about for many, many people: "One day, I'm gonna show someone that he's messed with the wrong guy, and then I'll be a hero."

      It is more important to be a confident and articulate speaker than to know jack shit about anything.
