Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

This is part of the growing trend to not accept things as they are, but when we cannot get what we want, we tend to not accept that. We must have what we want. We are a generation of instant gratification. When elections don't go our way, sure, there are a lot of folks who would riot. They do it when their sports team either wins or loses :)
Incapable of accepting reality and letting it go. Someone wins the election, if it was a fair election, that is it. Why riot? That is just an excuse, like Watts was way back when. People like to make noise when things don't go their way.

It's been a long time but I feel sure the MS. Highway Patrol can still lay their hands on some firehoses and German Shepherds. And methinks I've got a riot shotgun laying around here someplace.

About a month ago everyone's favorite Viet Nam Chicken Hawk, Rusty (Boil-on-the-Butt) Limbaugh, encouraged Republican Primary voters to cross over to vote for Hillary to further frustrate the Dems attempt to get a candidate and to keep them fighting. Then he said he actually preferred Obama ... whatever.
About the same time he promoted the idea and tried to generate interest in and fire up HIS BASE that 08 will be another 68 ... demonstrations and police riots in the st etc etc. Where's the Beef?
Another 'whatever', if you like me have occasionally followed this guy's disinformation for years.
Our democracy is difficult enough without entertainment-turkeys like HIM and a few others mucking it up with bogus and provocative statements.

I guess that just depends on what side of the fence you are on.Our democracy is difficult enough without entertainment-turkeys like HIM and a few others mucking it up with bogus and provocative statements.
As for me, listening to the same ole tired liberal mantra is somewhat...tiring.
One thing about a "riot" even if it does happen...it will be a very localized event.
Me, sitting here in Arkansas, could really care less what a bunch of

If they get stupid and actually cause a riot, then they deserve whatever their tiny little brains in their tiny little skulls get.
I'll watch it on TV and see it discussed here.

I don't believe there will be any riots at the convention, or because one candidate or the other doesn't get the nomination.
It appears very likely that Obama will be the Democrat candidate for President.
A more plausible scenario is that some idiot, whether he be a racist or agent provocateur, might attempt to assassinate Obama at some point in time. Which could most certainly provoke nationwide rioting, and result in draconian anti-gun legislation.
I doubt this will happen either, but it's better to be safe than sorry. Regardless of who wins the election, even if it's McCain, it is wise to stock up on all the "big boy toys" and accessories one can afford---BEFORE the new President is sworn in this coming January.
If the Gun Grabbers are able to push another weapons ban through Congress, which is quite possible since we may very well be looking at Democrat control of the White House, Senate and House of Representatives after this election---you can bet any new ban will NOT have a "sunset" provision like the last one did.
Any future ban will be PERMANENT.
-sigh- I would say I lean towards a democrat for most issues, except guns of course :P
But the thing is... I can't really consider myself a democrat because people who announce things like riots make me embarrassed to be associated with them.
I think I should be okay though, my neighborhood would probably scare most democrats away.
What is your right to bear arms worth if you can be arrested without warrant? Would you shoot a police officer arresting you?
